“Excellent Food, lived up to its high rating”
Reviewed February 5, 2014 via mobile

This more formal restaurant easily lived up to its very high reputation with excellent food, good service and good wines.

It is not cheap but the quality and skill make up for the price. The Lobster dish was delicious as was the Duckling. All in all a wonderful dining experience. The ambiance is quieter than say Cafe Marquesa.

“5 stars and absolutely deserved it”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

We were in Key West for five days and this was absolutely the best meal we enjoyed during the entire time. In fact, it was one of the most superb meals we've had at any restaurant. The chef is creative and brilliant - nothing here is ordinary and the specials are just that: special! Excellent French service but it was always friendly and never pretentious. We loved it so much we went back twice, especially for our last night there.

Prices are definitely higher than other places but it was worth it. For example, I had the duck with raspberries one night (after sooo much fish elsewhere). Not only was it delicious but it was served with roasted fingerling potatoes, cherry tomatoes stuffed with spinach, a bouquet of mini-vegetables and a square of gratineed zucchini. Every single item was elegant and tasty, and I could barely finish it. My husband had both their famous mango lobster (whose praise is well-deserved) and the grouper. Loved it all. Desserts are a treat, outside the usual realm. The poached pear was divine and chocolate choices were wonderful.

Highly recommended for those who really enjoy excellent food! The quality is equal to New York restaurants - and better than many in NY.

“Special NYE Dinner”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

We visited Pisces for a romantic New Years Eve dinner. The food was expensive for what it was, but we felt the food and service justified the higher prices. We were truly impressed with the chef and would definitely revisit on our next trip to key west.

“Not my cup of tea”
Reviewed January 2, 2014 via mobile

I agree with a previous reviewer that to pay such a high price for lobster bisque which is so mean on the lobster makes you feel a little 'mugged'. This place will suit you if you like 'pomp and circumstance' when dining, I personally don't, and whilst the waiters were professional and informative, all that re-folding of your napkin whilst you are in the bathroom doesn't count for much when the bathroom you have just visited is dirty, cramped and in much need of a renovation.

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

Each course well prepared and perfectly presented. More than enough food for the quality and presentation. The bisque was excellent as was both main fish courses. Our service was great and went right along with our relaxed vacation.
