    We were seated with a nice view of the marina for out 31st anniversary dinner. The server was extremely knowledgeable and his suggestions were very accurate. We had already previewed the menu but the special changed one choice, and he topped of the evening with a superb desert recommendation that made the evening complete.

    We were early for our reservation and were quickly seated. The waiter Michael was super friendly and excellent at attending to our dining experience. The food came quickly and our steak was cooked perfect! Did not have room for dessert but will definitely come back on our next trip to Key West, Florida!

    Very pleasant waitress. Food was excellent and we celebrated a 25 year wedding anniversary. I especially liked Berlins bar which felt like a throwback in time to the 1950’s. Cool vibe, nice upscale place to dine overall.

    Great view, Great server and bar staff. Octopus was over cook and the sauce was very sweet. Steak was cook perfectly but was bland flavorless, lobster was over cook.

    Incredible drink lounge while you wait. Outdoor Marina Side is best seating. This is a very beautiful restaurant and the food is in one word, Amazing. Any lobster based seafood dish is forth every penny & then some. Banana Desert was a perfect end.

    Our second visit and everything was the same as the first time - great service and fantastic food. We sampled the escargot/lobster and squid appetizers, the lobsters for dinner of course and a crème brûlée for dessert. Don’t forget to stop at the bar attached - Berlin’s - for a before or after dinner cocktail.

    I would love to give A&B a better rating, but I can't. I have been going there for more than 20 years and thought it was wonderful. However, food is no longer excellent, prices are so high (probably highest in Key West), and service is just OK. BUT the view is to die for, the place is clean and pretty, the drinks (altho expensive) are great. There is a special ambience about the place that makes people want to dress really nice and behave!! I will wait awhile before I go back, hoping food gets better. I don't think the prices will :-(

    Very nice, white tablecloth restaurant located on a marina waterfront . The service was prompt and courteous. We dined outside on the balcony and enjoyed the beautiful evening. The lobster bisque was excellent as was the flounder Oscar. Dessert was a slice of awesome key lime pie. The only complaint I have is that our entree came before apps were finished. A little spacing between them would have been better. We will go back on our next trip to KW.
