  • Not as good as Clearwater Beach, FL

    Dined on 8/17/2014
    My husband and I were visiting Key West and got excited when we saw there was a Shor in the hotel next to ours. We had dined, several times, at the Shor on Clearwater Beach. The food there was always amazing. Unfortunately, the Key West Shor did not measure up. The food was not terrible, the calamari fries were seriously over-salted. When the restaurant manager came to our table to check on us, we informed her of this, so she could inform the chef. She offered to take the calamari off our bill. But, when my husband received the bill, the calamari was still on it. We payed the bill, but informed our waiter of the mix-up. The chef in Key West should take a trip North to Clearwater Beach.

    Dined on 8/5/2014
    I had dinner there. The hostess was non-existent. I waited over 10 minutes to be seated when the restaurant was empty. More importantly she did not even bother to acknowledge us. A waitress had to come by and sit us down at the table. I almost left the restaurant. Given how few people were there the hostess should be doing the best to make any customer walking in feel comfortable. The food was very tasty and our waiter did do his best to salvage the evening. I just cannot help but have a bad taste in my mouth concerning the service from the hostess. The waiter would get 4 stars but the hostess would get 0 stars so that is why I rate the service 3.

    My wife and I were looking for a nice place to have dinner and enjoy the Key West sunset. Could not have made a better selection. View was great, food and service were awesome. As good as it was, the one thing I found surprising was that the place was relatively empty. I guess its because it is the hotel restaurant and so many other options abound in Key West. We definetely will be back.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 5/11/2014
    This wasn't the largest Mother's Day Brunch we've been to. But it was extremely nice. All the staff was welcoming and friendly. And the view - well, it is Key West ! The server kept our glasses filled with mimosas and champagne, and we had plenty of water too. The food was very good - oysters on the half-shell, and large, perfectly cooked peel & eat shrimp. The omelet station was pretty standard, and we bypassed, but they also had a fritatta, bacon and chicken sausage, which was great!. There was roast pork, prime rib, potatoes, carrots, and some excellent grilled asparagus. All sauces were delicious! There was a small salad bar with fresh varied greens, some wonderful jalapeno muffins, croissants, other breads, and desserts.

    We were a group of four close friends and wanted to do one special night out in Key West. So happy we found Shor. The setting and service were exceptional. Food was prepared beautifully and delicious. They had outdoor dining on a lovely porch, but inside dining was very nice too, all with views of the water and sunset in the West.

    Love the alfresco dining and the beautiful view of the sunset…the service was slow and the waiter did not turn on his listening skills… Not sure he is cut out to be a waiter…could only bring one drink at a time…what's up with that??? Strange. The lobster bisque, good. I turned the crab cake appetizer into my entree with a side of grilled asparagus - EXCELLENT!! The key lime creme brûlée which they raved about did not even taste like key lime very disappointing...

    We moved recently to Key West and were here for our first major holiday away from family back home, so we wanted to treat ourselves. We made a perfect choice picking Shor. It was a lovely Easter evening, fairly quiet, pretty sunset, other quiet diners and fabulous food. The service is outstanding, and the salad with the fried goat cheese is to die for. Highly recommend for a special occasion.

    Overall we had a very nice table overlooking the harbor and great view of the sunset. Food was very good. Service on the other hand was atrocious. The host was some buffoon and our server was just as bad. Took 20 minutes to even come to the table when we were 1 of three tables. He took even longer to take our drinks and then our food order. After we finished our meal we waited another half hour for our check that never came. I had to flag him down to get it and then we waited another 15 minutes and never got the check. I finally went inside and to the bus station and waited for him to print it out in front of me. Don't waste your money on this place, far better restaurants with just as good food and not half the price for such poor service.

    We were seated immediately for our 6 reservation. The weather appeared fine and it was good to sit on the veranda with a nice view. Our server Jason was very friendly and helpful in going over the menu. We started with the fried calamari which was done perfectly. The chili-ketchup sauce for dipping was just okay. We had the tile fish w/garlic smash and green beans. The fish was done perfectly and was a big hit. We also had the jumbo shrimp in a lite tomato sauce over angel hair pasta. The shrimp were cooked perfectly, however the sauce was not spicy as advertised and it could've used a little more pasta. During dinner the weather changed and became windy and cloudy which put a damper on our outdoor dining experience.

  • A Disappointment...
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 2/14/2014
    Our meal was a disappointment. The food took a long-time to be plated, service was slow, and the dishes were served lukewarm. The entrées were OK, but the bisque was very salty/pasty and the dessert was poorly executed. We ate at a number of other nice restaurants in Key West; this one was our most expensive and the poorest relative value in our humble opinion.

    Went there for a special occasion as we were staying at the Hyatt. First, the menu on the Hyatt website doesn't even come close to the actual menu. We arrived at 8:00 and were one of three tables, by 8:30, we were the ONLY table (Thursday night) in the whole restaurant! Food was presented nicely, but not extremely hot. Very odd considering the lack of customers. We did eat breakfast here also and it was quite good, just would never return for dinner. We like places to be a little more "happening", you could hear a pin drop.

    This year we decided to visit Shor for our anniversary dinner. The view was amazing. However, dinner was very disappointing. I ordered the mahi mahi and it really lacked taste and was overly salty. My quinoa was also very salty. The table next to us sent their fish back so I realized it wasn't just me. They described their fish as bitter. I ordered key lime creme brûlée for dessert. The carmalized layer on top was burnt and awful. We were seated outside, but I definitely wouldn't describe it as romantic. We were seated close to other people and the waitress didn't seem thrilled to be there. The price was high and experience wasn't great. I wish we would have chosen somewhere else to spend our special day. I'll stick to breakfast at Shor.

    After the noise on Duval Street, this was an oasis of calm and beauty. We reserved a table on the deck overlooking the expansive harbor and setting sun. Our waiter, Jason, was knowledgeable and friendly. The menu features some wonderful seafood options,. We had the Hot Pot for an appetizer and crab cakes, both were yummy. The Hot Pot is a real treat...spicy and flavorful. The blackened sea scallops and lobster tail were outstanding! We had a 1/2 price bottle of wine, since it was Monday :). All in all, our go-to place for the rest of our stay.

    We had dinner at Shor and sat inside next to the window overlooking the water. It was active but quiet and we really enjoyed the opportunity to be somewhere where we didn't have to shout. My husband had the grouper special...wonderful! I had the Hot Pot appetizer which was full of jumbo scallops, shrimp served in a spicy broth wi the grape tomatos and toasted baguettes. The mâché salad was really different and very tasty. Also enjoyed delicious espresso . Great dinner, attentive service.

    This lovely restaurant at the Hyatt offers outdoor waterfront dining. The food, service and view were all in synch to create a memorable meal. All of the seafood and steak dishes were outstanding. Validated parking in the hotel's lot was critical in this popular Key West location. The prices are on the high end but we enjoyed a nice discount as Hyatt guests at the nearby Hyatt Beach House. We would return even without the discount!

    Shor Seafood offers spectacular views of the sunset and excellent service but, unfortunately, the food does not match those standards. Our waiter was excellent and attentive but the food ranged from overcooked fish to chewy, poor quality "Wagyu" beef. We would recommend every other restaurant we tried in Key West but Shor Seafood would not be among them. The evening we were there for a beautiful sunset there were less than 6 tables taken in the entire restaurant — inside and outside — a sure sign that their reputation has preceded them and their fate may already be sealed.

    It was our last night in Key West and we wanted a great meal, great sunset view and no crowds. We got all at Shor. The view was much better than nearby Mallory Square and the food and service were amazing. Everything we had was fresh and outstanding. The Blue Mojito's were terrific as well. It may be a hotel restaurant, but it should not be considered as such and I highly recommend it.

    We enjoyed a sunset dinner and was not disappointed. While the food is not over the top it is good. I tried their specialty yellow tail snapper encrusted with sweet potato and pecans was good but not a lot of flavor in the coating. Another dish blackened grouper was excellent. Service was very efficient.
