Best lobster I have ever had! Carribean butter poached, amazing!
The noise level was surprisingly high and service took a while after we first sat down, but food delicious!

Excellent! Great service and outstanding food and drinks! The shrimp cocktail was awesome. The lobster bisque was to die for. The bread was even phenomenal. We had the Thermidor and the risotto and they were both excellent. Our only regret is we didn't have room for dessert because that also looked very good. Would highly recommend this place and would go back in a heartbeat.

Anniversary meal for our 30th…Our server was fabulous. We had both soups and they were delicious, as was bread service. My husband’s scallops and shrimp were perfectly cooked, but my 2 lb lobster was unfortunately overcooked.

This is my 3rd time to experience A&B and it was just as wonderful as it was 10 years ago. The grilled octopus appetizer was cooked perfectly ama very flavorful. Our main entrees, red snapper with lobster special and scallops with shrimp, were delightful, tender, and seasoned with care. We make it a point to make reservations well in advance of making a visit to Key West. And Berlin's Speak Easy was a perfect place to enjoy a cocktail prior to dinner.

Overall always Very good here. Food and service were both great. The only thing I would mention is how over priced the wine list was when compared to other fine dining restaurants in town. So we didn’t buy any but other than that we had a good evening.

A delightful anniversary dinner on the second floor balcony overlooking the harbor at sunset. Lobster bisque soup, pear salad and crabcakes were incredible with individual flavors bursting through. Candlelight and a sparkler on the best key lime pie in town.

Even the explosion of a power transformer on a pole a half block away did not diminish the experience. The staff handled it all with aplomb. Looking forward to returning soon.

Made a reservation for an outdoor table for anniversary. Hostess said she could only seat us inside at a table by kitchen, then proceeded to seat a walk in at an outside table. The food and ambiance were average.

Appetizers and salad were amazing. Ambiance and service was excellent, had an outside table. Entrees were very good, but had slightly better prepared fish elsewhere. Expected excellent fish for the price.
