Diner Reviews
  • "I love the atmosphere. It was great to have a specialty cocktail (bloody mary and champagne) to start the meal and relax with friends. The shrimp and oysters were the best with tasty sauces to compliment them. They served hot foods upon request so that it's fresh as opposed to sitting under heat lamps. It is a little pricy but well worth it."

  • "We were so glad we decided to make this trip to Little Palm Island for lunch. The Island is beautiful and everyone was so friendly. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. I would save this trip for a special occasion since it was pricey, but so worth it!!!"

  • "This was quite possibly the best meal I have ever eaten in the nicest setting. We will never forget the evening. The ferry boat ride, the setting and the food all combined for a magical effect. Every morsel was manna. Truly magnificent evening."

  • "The food was definitely not what we experienced 2 years ago. Our party of 4 had the 5-course tasting menu and of the 20 dishes combined, the dessert which was common for all ranked highest. Comments ranged from bland to just OK to really nice. The top food item was an octopus appetizer which was zesty, tender and inventive. Add in the somber whispery ambience and it's more a place for the grandparents who don't have much to sayyid each other after all these years or newlyweds whispering sweet nothings. If you're a party of four or six that is having a lively discussion you will feel the entire restaurant is listening in. Add in the very high prices and I'll skip next time for the plethora of great restaurants in KW."

  • "This is just an absolutely beautiful, wonderful place. Watching the sunset over the water, enjoying the key deer as they try to scrounge food from the diners, sitting near the fire on the beach with a tropical drink in hand, feeling the breeze as you're boating in both directions (if you're a local, not staying at the resort), feeding on most excellent food and wine as you're spoiled by the extremely attentive waitstaff. Nothing missing that I can think of . . . . ."

  • "The Little Palm was recommended by a friend. Really nice venue. Loved the boat excursion from Little Torch Key. Food was excellent though pricey but overall worth it for the ambience, secluded location, and beautiful memories."

  • "Met by a wonderful hostess (Amanda) as soon as we stepped off "The Truman," we had the opportunity to relax in comfortable chairs only 6 feet from the ocean and enjoy cocktails with the water gently lapping on the island shore. We chose to have dinner on the veranda and were wonderfully cared for by our server, Patrick, He was extremely knowledgeable about the wine list and the appetizer and dinner selections and help us choose an exquisite dinner we are likely never to forget; the chef signature dinner for two, With God's perfect and scenic artistry, and Patrick's perfect service, it was an unhurried, exquisite and romantic dinner where we could savor every moment desired. Thank You Little Palm Island!"

  • "We have been to Little Palm three times before and had great experiences. I had requested a table on the water as we had always had and called that day to confirm. When we arrived the hostess was going to seat us away from the water but i told her we had confirmed a water front table - she responded those were reserved for their "Island guests". The tables were were almost all vacant throughout our dinner as we sat away from the water front tables - it was very disappointing and distracting throughout the night. There were pesky bugs that have left me, my daughter and my sister with ichy bites since our visit. Our waiter tried to assist by providing us with insect repellent, however it was not effective. My fish was dry and tasteless."

  • "Excellent high end restaurant. European size portions. If your a tasting menu or 4 star lover go. If you want a steak that hangs off your plate don't. 125 per person plus wine. Worth the price."

  • "...this place is dreamlike -almost magical. Picture this: taking an "antique" wooden boat 20 minutes as the sun set to a tropical isle with elegant tables set on the shore. The fare was fine but not scintillating (and at $50+ per entree surprisingly spare), and the service - eh - hostess greeted our boat to tell us to wait on the dock for twenty or so minutes while they cleared the beach of a wedding... a complimentary cocktail for the inconvenience would have been a nice gesture. (Wait was actually notably longer.) My husband and I both found the setting wonderfully romantic, but sadly found it to be a destination, but not a destination restaurant."

  • "We are still talking about this experience. It's not often you get the quality of food to match the ambience and have the two meld so nicely."

  • "We missed our boat reservation due to crazy traffic on the Keys. LPI was flexible and able to accommodate us on the next boat to the island. So happy they could do that :). From the mainland we took a water shuttle to the island. Its about a 10 min ride. We were met at the entrance and seated on the outdoor deck for lunch. Perfect spot overlooking the water. Lunch was simple, cooked perfectly and nicely presented. Save room for the dessert. Amazing Key Lime pie!"

  • "My family went to little palm island for a nice night out. We all decided to order the chef's 5 course dinner. I chose Pork Belly, lobster, lamb tenderloin and scallop. The pork belly is to die for! It was perfectly seasoned and just melted as you ate it. The scallop and lobster were OK but I felt the lobster lacked flavor. It's accompanied with corn and that's all I tasted and it was a bit over cooked. The lamb was very tasty and well seasoned. One of my daughter's had the Duck which she could not get enough of and my other daughter and husband had grouper and that was perfectly cooked. Non of us liked the desserts. Over all we had a lovely time and the staff is Fantastic. But for $520.00 for 4 of us I expected to be blown away."

  • "Beautiful location and decent food selection but for a couple that aren't necessarily big eaters, $220 for a brunch is high. That being said, it's worth checking out at least once."

  • "Thanks to the crew at the Dining Room at Little Palm Island. They really took care of us at our anniversary dinner from the moment we walked off the dock. Top notch, well executed food - and it does its best to keep pace with the beauty and exclusivity of the beach and the private island. Thanks!"
