After a few days in the Keys
After a few days in the Keys and some great outdoor venues, we looked at Bagatelle and almost cancelled our reservations.....an unassuming place right on Duval St....what a mistake that would have been. Our meal, and the waitstaff, was everthing you would want in a fine dining meal We started with the pork belly....melt in your mouth tender and flavorful. The tuna with udon noodles was beautifully rare and tasty and the duck with citrus(!)potatos an unexpected mouth treat. Go There!

Great Dining Experience
Excellent food and attentive service. Great spot for more mature diners in a youth oriented area of town. Broad spectrum menu of creative offerings with "right-sized" portions. Wine list was superb. Staff very understated in their presence, but efficient in their work. Just as I like.

We come to Bagatelle each
We come to Bagatelle each year when we are in Key West. Dining on the outside wrap-around porches overlooking Duval is fabulous, so the ambience is one of the best in Key West. However, this year the menu was somewhat average,and the food was good but not anything special.

Serenity In The Midst of Duval
Bagatelle is a beautiful little restaurant tucked away at the north end of Duval Street. Despite the location on Key West's famous bar scene street, you step into a serene and quiet restored old house and feel a million miles away from Margaritas, beer and nachos. Try sitting on the porch and you can have an excellent dinner and people watch at the same time. The food is based on locally caught and locally grown foods and is marvelous. Our waiter was experienced, friendly and helpful. A real gem!

Definitely a place
I tried getting a reservation for 7 but the system said no tables were available so I made it for 5. When we arrived at 7pm the place was practically empty and they had some very large tables that never filled so I dont know whats up with that. Other than that a great place. My fiance and I both had the swordfish which was outstanding. My son had shrimp and pasta which was also outstanding. The mojito was good but a little weak. We ate outside and were able to watch the happenings on Duval.

The quality of the food was only eclipsed by the quality of service. Our waiter was on top of his game. He was informative and knew everything about the menu. He was attentive, entertaining, well-versed and made the whole dining experience a pleasure. It's too bad we don't live closer to Key West. This place is a must dine. Have the Snapper!!!!

Despite of a crowded night my wife and I had a fantastic dinner. The lobster with the mango risoto was balanced and exclusive.
The service was very good. I will come back again.

Dinner at bagatelle June 2, 2013
our waiter was cliff he was fantastic. We had a very nice table out on the terrace. Cliff suggested the pork belly as an appetizer, it came with a molasses reduction it was delicious. If you like pork belly do not hesitate to order it. Our waiter also suggested lobster Mac and cheese which we also order. Our table order grouper which came on top of a crab cake with a bier blac sauce and we also ordered filet w a sherry wine sauce. To top off the meal key lime pie very creamy with cappuccinos. Our evening was memorable. We will be back.

Mussels are outrageous!
My friend had been raving to me for a year about how amazing the mussels at Bagatelle taste. Being the ultimate skeptic and a bit of a foodie, I paid him no attention. We finally got to visit Bagatelle, and I wanted to drink the broth. We almost ordered a second batch! If you think you've had the best mussels somewhere else, Bagatelle is WELL worth the trip. Oh, and the lobster tail with risotto was pretty awesome too!

Great food great service
Food was wonderful, well presented. Service was friendly and attentive. Service of starters and entrees was well spaced. Overall a really great dining experience.

This is a favorite restaurant of ours whenever we visit Key West. After dining on seafood for a couple of days, their ribeye steaks are delicious. Sides are good, service is reliable, prices are not over the top and we always recommend asking for a patio table for some interesting people watching.

Our Favorite Key West Resturant
Bagatelle is the best. Superb food, extraordinary service. Reserve early to have a tableon the proch overlooking Duval Street. It can be noisey, but there is not a better spot to comibine fine dining with a great spot for people watching.
Samantha is a great server!

A Birthday Celebration
The staff had reserved for us a great table on the porch. It was in the corner so quiet enough for allmsixmof us to enjoy the group conversation. The mussels appetizer was a huge hit, the entrees met or exceeded everyone's expectations, and the wine list was fair. Our server was very attentive and even remembered to being our a small birthday cake for our special guest. We will all be back.

We were in the Keys for the
We were in the Keys for the Poker Run, so they were dealing with a lot of people! Two guys at our table had the roasted lobster and it was outstanding, cooked perfectly! My friend had the swordfish and it was delicious. Our favorite appetizer is the mussels with black peppercorn sauce and it was delish, as always. Our waiter, Cliff, was very attentive, even when we complained a bit about the loud music from a vendor in the street nearby. He somehow arranged to turn the volume down!

Being directly on Duval Street, I was skeptical. However, the wine list was great and the food was amazing! Four of us sat on the porch. I think it would have been different if we sat inside. The service was great and I have to say the Hog Fish, which three of us had, was amazing. This was a great find!

In Key West, right on Duval
In Key West, right on Duval St, right in the middle of the action, but , up on a balcony where you can observe, and also enjoy dinner. Service is great, and helpful. Will go again when in town.

We had a fantastic dinner. We started with the BBQ shrimp wrapped in bacon. They were out of this world. I had the hog fish that was outstanding! My husband had the swordfish that he loved. Our waiter was excellent and very nice. We had a great view on the front porch where we could see all the people on Duval. It was the best and last dinner of our trip. We look forward to going back the next time we are in Key West. We would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

The service was wonderful and the food was very good. I wish they had organic choices on their menu --- they are not keeping up with the times as most good restaurants now know that customers demand sustainable food that is free of GMOs and pesticide residues.
We ordered a bottle of expensive champagne from their menu only to find out 10 minutes later that it was out of stock.
The sauce for the duck overpowered the flavor of the meat, but everything else tasted wonderful.
