    Unfortunately, we went on a very windy night and sitting outside chilly with plastic screens blowing. There was also a large party that was very noisy. The food however was excellent and the staff was very attentive and pleasant. Would try again on calm night.

    The food was quite varied, and thanks to its locale, tended towards a lot of fresh seafood innovatively cooked. I highly recommend the tapas. Two tapas is a full meal. The pasta was excellent too. Another asset is that there is plenty of parking.

    We eat here all the time and decided to bring some out of town guests in. I felt embarrassed for having talked this place up. The service was terrible. It's usually so great. The food was, as always, excellent. But that's the only good point. We were there for 2.5 hours, not by choice. So slow, so slow. I don't know if I'll be back. At least not with friends.

    I went out with a group of girlfriends for a night out without our kids. We had a wonderful time! We each had wine with our entrees to start. My New York Strip was outstanding! The other ladies had meals that were just to their liking. We were never rushed or bothered as we just sat and talked for over 2 hours. Our server was very welcoming and attentive. For dessert I had the home made sorbet of the night which was strawberry and it was amazing! It was a perfect end to my meal! I will be going back soon for another special night out.

    Server was in such a hurry - to the point of almost being rude. She forgot the table completely, and we had to signal her to remind her that the one guests' drink never arrived. She argued with me over the wine I ordered and tried to convince me that it was really good. My lamb was over cooked, and it was brought back as all fat and impossible to cut...let alone chew. She brought the elderly guest an additional drink (totaling 3) and it was apparent that he was "over his limit." When we were leaving, he asked for a double -- she should not have served him. He was our driver... Requests: we either had to flag her down or get another wait staff member to get her...or bring what we needed.

    I normally wouldn't have tried a restaurant in a Marriott in Key West that was not on the water with no view, but let me tell you, the atmosphere and food was amazing! There is just a big city vibe, with a cool bar, and a live piano player. The menu was varied and interesting. All four of us loved our dishes. The service was excellent, and I would return in a heartbeat.

    Never disappoints! Always vibrant but if you want something a little quieter ask for a table in the back dining room which is also more romantic. If you want interaction, and to be in the mix of things ask to be seated in the front area where you can listen to the entertainment and things are a buzz. Happy hour starts early at around 5: 30 P.M. until 7:00 P.M. and they have a fine selection of wines as well as a full bar so don't be late.

    We are locals from Key West who dine at this restaurant on a weekly basis. Every time we have dined here the service was attentive, and the food, impeccable. I ordered the lamb as I always do, mid rare. My lamb was delivered and I was very surprised that when I cut into the meat it was well done. If your lamb is not cooked perfectly it looses its appeal. The lamb did have the perfect combination of flavors, it just was overcooked. When staff was informed the issue was addressed immediately. They offered to cook me another one, but as I was with others I did not want them to have to wait. Would I go back? Yes I would! Everyone makes mistakes it is how the mistakes are handled that defines how good or bad an establishment is.

    Have been to this restaurant four times now and the food is good but hasn't yet been great. This time I ordered scallops. They were very good but I didn't like the pairing with mashed sweet potatoes . they just didn't mesh well. Also strangely served in a bowl for some reason. Made it harder to eat. I will go back and try so. E other dishes and can always fall back on the prime rib which is very good. Still, it wouldn't take much of an effort to improve the shortcomings and I wonder why they don't. There are many good chefs in key west. Find one who is better and hire him or her.

    We've lived in Key West over 3 years but this was our first trip to Tavern and Town. We were not disappointed. The staff from the hostess, manager(?), server, assistant waiter/bus staff were all very friendly. The kitchen is open to the restaurant and it smelled heavenly when we walked in! This is a great place for larger parties with plenty of large tables. Both my husband and I got the filet mignon/short ribs. The portion was just right - a little too much for me (but my husband didn't leave anything behind). We also tried the banana croissant chocolate bread pudding with vanilla ice cream (great suggestion by our server to add ice cream) - Yum! And the homemade ice cream was delicious also. We will definitely be going back.

    Living on Stock Island we have to go in town for most of the good restaurants so this is nice and close to home. The place was beautiful, menu had a good variety of options, and the food was tasty. I was surprised how long it took for the food to come out considering it was not crowded at all. I am concerned about how long things might take if it were busier. I would be inclined to go back but for Happy Hour as I understand they have half price entrees and decent drink selection.

Everyone loved there food and the wine our server, the amazing Roy, suggested was superb. Recommend this place for couples, groups, families, and pretty much anyone who loves a good meal!

    I dined here with my son and daughter. The wine list is expansive, and the food was very good, except for the special fish, which was very plain. Our server was terrific. The two complaints I would have are that small children from the next table were running around and kept squeezing past my chair, which was annoying. Also, the bar area is not separated from the dining room. Two couples at the bar were very loud and that took away from the pleasant dining experience. There were two singers in the bar, but we could barely hear them over the other noise. It was mostly a pleasant experience, but could have been better.

    One of our best friends is a snow-bird and returning to Ohio today so we planned a small dinner of good friends. Food was good, service was good and the local-specials price was excellent. My only negative feeling arose from the noise level in the dining room- we had a hard time talking. The next time I will request a table in the back of the dining room away from the bar andthe performer.
