    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 10/21/2014
    Our waiter was Peter, who excellent. Gave us great advice on menu selections, very polite, very attentive. The food he recommended my wife had the Snapper, I had the momor soup (not sure if that's the right name) and we both thought they were some of the best food we've ever had. We would go back in a heartbeat.

    Nice first visit to 915. Made reservation via open table a couple of hours before dinner. Seated quickly and was accomodated outside as per request. Was welcomed by very positive and attentive server (Ellinie) who provided outstanding service. Great selection of cocktails wines with a fair price (bottle of Chardonnay was $33). Thought food menu could have been more expansive. I had the Seared Scallops that, although were tasty, were slightly undercooked. Wife had the only vegan selection on menu (some sort of potatoe pasta dish) which she thought was "good" but certainly not "yummy". For dessert, had the All Grown Up Root Beer float that was outstanding! Will definitely return but will forgoe dinner at 915 for drinks and dessert only.

    Don't miss 9-1-5 in Key West. Looked over the list of best places in Key West, and reviews on various sites, decided to try 915, this needs to be added to one of the Key West best of lists, food was fantastic, and the service (Bill) was an absolute pleasure.

    We three women love to dine but don't always have the appetite for huge plates, so we create our own "tapas" events. Nine One Five was a surprise and a delight - every dish was amazing. The Tuna Dome, the Duck Confit and the Seared Scallop dish were beyond reproach... throw in a huge cone of perfectly prepared fries and some delicious veggies... we were in heaven. And spectacular cocktails featuring house-made Tonic Water -- what a bright note! Stewart, the owner, is clearly in the right line of work. His staff is warm, competent and just the right amount of engaged. They even brought out three exquisite home-made Chocolate Truffles with a candle in honor of my mom's birthday. I'll definitely be back any time I'm in Key West.

    My wife and I loved the food and even had fun discussing the menu. The down side was the waiter who was absent, and if this place did not employ excellent servers we would not have received our food. We would have liked to have a glass of wine before we were most of the through our meal. To sum it up, rotate the servers to wait staff and we would have nothing but praises, since the food and menu were terrific.

    Ate at Louie's Twice, Blue heaven once but the best was 915. Foie Gras was perfect! Duck Confit correct ( who doesnt love crispy Duck Skin). Scallops buttery, not raw, with a perfect sear. Star was probably Tomato Duet with fried Green tomato/shrimp remoulade and tomato over mozzerala. Great Job Chef and Service.

    My husband and I are both foodies and have both worked as Chefs for over twenty years. Nine One Five was almost perfect. The food was world class and we would want to eat there every night if we went back to the Island. We were there with another couple and we all had fantastic dinners. The only ( minor) off note was our less than friendly waiter, although he was efficient . If you go don't miss the desserts either. This place knows food.

    Nine One Five was recommended to us by The Chelsea House front desk. And omg, it did not disappoint. The food was delicious, we had a hard time deciding what to order. The sides are large portions for sides, and we would've been better off sharing them rather than ordering multiples, as we ended up with too much food. Overall great menu, awesome cocktails and great service. Will definitely go back next time we're in Key West.

    I love the food here, but the service is always so & so... Last year it was much better! And I am sorry, I have been here 5 times the last four months and I cant imagine why you keep that blonde hostess. She is terrible. She doesn't even acknowledge people arriving to the restaurant. She adds no value what so ever to your establishment.

    The atmosphere was very charming, which is why we choose to eat here, but the selection on the menu wasn't extensive. The burger is the best thing for your buck on the menu, so good. However, everything else is small portions for high cost. It was our most expensive meal while in Key West and we were still hungry when we left unfortunately.

    A friend and I went on a Saturday evening with her 13 year old daughter and one of her friends. They were accommodating to her daughter's picky eating by making her a plain chicken breast (which she loved!). I had the swordfish and it was out if this world. Our waiter was great, the wine was awesome and the dessert was to die for! We definitely put this on our 'must do' list.

    915 is by far my favorite restaurant on the island. The food is excellent and the service is out of this world. I recommend this to anyone who comes to key west. I am a local and there are numerous good restaurants in town but this one is where we go for random dinners and important celebrations. I would also like to mention their upstairs which I will go to with girlfriends to grab a drink and more casual dining. Amazing amazing amazing!

    Nine One Five has a reputation as the place in Key West to go to find French fries. In a way that is unfortunate as it suggests a sort of meat and potatoes joint. Nine One Five has the most interesting menu on the island literally from soup to nuts. In my experience it is always very well executed.

Great place to share plates. Flavors are amazing. Creative cocktails featuring craft spirits. Good selection of .375 ml bottles on the wine list. One of the busiest and best restaurants in Key West.

    Not much in the way of food choices, overpriced, not great service, and the cut of meat used in the filet was not great quality- then they drenched the filet mignon in a mediocre peppercorn sauce almost as if to cover up the subpar quality of the meat. There are much better restaurant choices in key west.
