    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.

  • Great food,but where is our waiter?
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 8/15/2014
    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.

    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.

    We had heard of this place from a friend so we tried it out. Upon arriving the host was not very welcoming-quiet and blah. Our waiter was no better. He said it was very laid back and didn't recommend anything or go through the menu. We ordered the crab cake and ceviche a Stella and a Riesling. The apps came and the presentation was nice but the crab cake was the size of a half dollar...the ceviche was 8 chips and a 3oz cup. We were done and ready to move on. After paying the $50 check we went out for pizza-Only Wood was AMAZING. FAR BETTER RESTAURANTS THAN THIS ONE. I'm all about an expensive meal but dont expect to walk away HUNGRY and DISAPPOINTED.

    I chose Nine One Five as the location for a date with my wife before spending three weeks apart. Our seats away from the street around the side were excellent for just us. It's a bit cozy, but the atmosphere is relaxing. Our server, Elleny, was smiling, enthusiastic and engaged the entire visit. Our calamari appetizer was excellent, and our main courses of a burger and a 10-ounce sirloin had good flavor and texture. The beer selection was a bit better than average and wine list had enough interesting options. We would go again.

    Our experience at 915 was phenomenal. From the hostess to the bartender to the server, all were very friendly, engaging and accommodating. We picked a nice bottle from their extensive wine list, ordered some snacks and appetizers to start our evening. All came out in a timely fashion and presentation of the food was very attractive. All menu items we ordered were very tasty and delicious. Once it came time for entrees, momma's soul soup was the favorite. You have to try this dish when dining at 915. The atmosphere at the restaurant was very calm and relaxing. Never did we feel rushed. Dining outside with the cooling breeze always around is just an experience you don't get anywhere else.

    A very nice restaurant for Key West. Nice outdoor seating on veranda and in front of restaurant. Despite past James Beard nominations food was ok compared to other James Beard nominees across the country. However for Key West definitely worth trying as long as your expectations are not too high.
