They argued & finally said come 45 min earlier to fit usin. They waiter tried to rush us & turns out the place never was packed . They undercooked my steak & when we went to the bar after the bartender was so rude to all the customers not just our party They need to get it together "

  • "It feels like a chain hotel restaurant and service was disjointed. The food was average and not worth the price. Great for cocktails and appetizers, but they share the same kitchen as the buffet restaurant next door. Love the resort, but would not do Alma again"

  • "We were looking for fine food dining in the Middle Keys and turned to Open Table. We are delighted that we followed their recommendation. The Churrasco Beef was world class and my wife's Blue Crab Stack, delicious and presented beautifully. We will recommend to friends and undoubtedly return to dine here again."

  • "This is a highly rated resort, so our expectations were such. How happy we were to find that those expectations were exceeded! For openers the potato-chorizo tapa was outstanding in its flavors; I could have eaten that in a larger portion as a meal. Hubby's salad was the weakest area of the meal---little dressing and too sweet for his palate. The entrees were mouth-watering; his choice was the special, a huge marinated pork chop excellently spiced and cooked served with a fresh vegetable display. Loving scallops, I opted for that entree and was served three huge bronzed scallops with fresh cherry tomatoes in a glaze with mushrooms. Both were exceptional and large servings. The waitstaff could not have been more amenable."

  • "The food was excellent (although very expensive). From start To finish everything was delicious. Kids menu needs work, but the $13 Mac n cheese for kids Was delicious too! Nice wines. A better choice than the other Main restaurant at the resort."

  • "The staff was great, the food was wonderful, very expensive . We ate at other marathon restaurants such as grassy key outpost which was very casual and had great creative food for far less. If you want to be a bit fancy go to alma."

  • "My husband and I were staying at Hawks Cay with a group of 5, we wanted to sneak away for a romantic dinner and boy, did Alma deliver! The food, drinks and our server were top notch! Definitely will be recommending this to anyone staying in the area, and we will definitely be returning not only to Hawks Cay, but to Alma. Thank you to our fabulous server Denisa for making our dining experience memorable!"

  • "I ordered the seafood paella and it was not hot. I felt like the food had been sitting out before it was served which took a long time to get over to me. It was my birthday so I ordered the Creme brûlée and that was also cold. The presentation was nice, but I've never had a cold Creme brûlée before. My sister ordered the drunken cake and it was dry. Given that there was a lower end restaurant next door called Ocean's that seemed more lively and packed I should've celebrated my birthday their."

  • "The Latin infused food was top notch. The short ribs were fork tender. Our waiter was friendly and accomadating. Will go back!"

  • "Dining choices at Hawk's Cay are limited so it would be easy for a restaurant like Alma to perform with mediocrity but I was very pleasantly surprised by the food quality. The wait staff at our table of 10 did a great job of meeting our needs. Wine list was limited but had some quality wines to choose from and our group found a couple that were great and reasonably priced. So, great job to Alma."

  • "We came to the hotel for a special birthday weekend with family and made the dinner reservation 2 weeks in advance. At the time I also request a birthday dessert. I came to the restaurant late in the afternoon to confirm the table and dessert but no one was available. At the time of arrival I asked the host to check on the dessert. I didn't ask them to make anything special just add a candle or something to one of their menu desserts. We have 4 children and dinner service took over 2 1/2 hours ! At the end I had to get up from the table to ask for dessert to be served. The restaurant didnt seem that busy to warrant such a long service or they were understaffed. It was expensive for what it was."

  • "We celebrated my friend's 50th birthday at Alma. The food was superb. Our waitress was terrific. And the manager(?) who was helping out on the floor was so helpful and friendly. They served the dessert on a plate with Happy Birthday written in chocolate. A wonderful evening."

  • "We had a wonderful dinner even though it rained and started to come in a bit near our feet, but no big deal. It was relaxing and soothing with outstanding service. The food was very good, but a little over priced."

  • "Food was overpriced and lacking any grace. Don't eat here unless you must - head off resort to other dining options in Marathon or Islamorada."

  • "Best option at Hawk's Cay. Expensive and not out of this world, but worth it for the convenience if you want a nice dinner at the resort."

  • "Nothing special. You are better off getting in your car and making the short drive to Marathon, where you'll get better food and better value."

  • "Alma is a nice little restaurant with a great bar, outside dinning is a must, eat late enough and you can listen to the live music near the huge fire out just 50 feet away. Service was outstanding. Hostess a actually read my open table comments and had the table I asked for ready."
    Dined on 4/7/2013
  • "The ambiance was pleasant but the food was neither tasty nor well- presented. We had a reservation and the restaurant was not full but we still had to wait 10 minutes for our table. We called the restaurant several times to make a reservation but the telephone was never answered so we used Open Table."

  • "Food was fairly good. Service was slow (both times we went)."

  • "Although the service was great and restaurant is lovely the food was a BIG disappointment and very overpriced. There are limited choices on Duck Key but next time I would head off the island."

  • "This restaurant is overlooking the fire pit and pool area of Hawk's Cay Resort. It's also right next to their other restaurant OCEAN, which was full of kids when we were there sitting outside. There was a screaming baby for about 30 minutes of our dinner, which was SO annoying! Their wine list by the glass is thin, at best. My wedge salad was nothing special, although my husband really enjoyed his meatball appetizer. We both ordered fish: me yellowtail and him mahi (dolphin). They have this 'house seasoning' that is just disturbing. They coat all the fish with it, it's got cloves and very odd stong spices in it that just don't meld well with fish. The sauces were completely tasteless. Not great. They also added 18% gratuity."

  • "Alma has the potential to be a memorable dining experience; however, it fell short from being a highlight of our stay in the Keys. We made our reservation in advance through Open Table and we were greeted kindly by the host as we arrived. The venue was quiet (a Sunday night) and there was no shortage of choice tables-- we could've dined inside or outside-- we chose outside. Our server was polite & professional, though service overall was a bit casual. The menu selections were your typical finer dining options and average fine dining pricing, but nothing stood out as being a unique selling point. Food service was steadily paced, but my palette just didn't jump. Not enough atmosphere to make up for this lack of food appeal."
