Seafood
A visit to our house is a unique way to relax and enjoy life's simple pleasures as well as our treasures from the sea. The word Bagatelle comes from the French and means "a trifle or a little nothing", often referring to a light, fun, yet not too serious spring time romance. The French brought their history of fine cuisine and their love of wine to the Caribbean Islands. It is in this tradition that we have combined our French heritage, southern hospitality and the indigenous tastes of the Florida Keys into the meals we prepare today. Our chefs blend the best of our locally caught fresh seafood, fresh produce and delicious tropical fruits for our tropical seafood dishes.

Had my daughter & grandson in Town along with their service dog.
Bagatelle seated us upstairs on the balcony & made arrangements for the dog.
Food and service outstanding.
Most enjoyable brunch.

The lobster was way overcooked, pretty inedible. Mashed potatoes were not good either, key lime pie had 3 inches of meringue on top- definitely tourist food at tourist prices. Our waitress was great though.

We have lived in the Keys and are moving back, Bagatelle has always been a favorite! But I wanted to extend a little extra praise to everyone there for being so kind and accommodating during this ridiculous crazy pandemic! Almost everywhere here in Florida is mask mandatory. I'm a native and appreciate it, knowing that most of the tourists coming from other states are not happy with it, but don't realize the numbers of people our service industry here has to come into contact with daily and we need to protect our own so we can continue to provide such wonderful service, as they did at Bagatelle both times we went during our short stay in KW! The kindness isn't the norm at most places right now. Masks are hot and stifling, causing anxiousness... for the servers and manager to still be smiling, thoughtful and kind - kudos! You Are Appreciated! For those of you visiting our hot and beautiful state, reading these reviews: PLEASE be kind!

Finally checked this one off our list. Great choice! Great ambiance and excellent service. We had the crab cake (full of crab, very tasty), miso glazed tuna on an edamame hummus, Duval salad (meal of its own), the swordfish (they've won awards for it and it shows), and the mussels (actually a starter, but a large portion). Everything was very good, but the mussels were the star, they were in a cream sauce that could have been a cream chowder on its own. Get extra bread for dipping in the sauce. Finished with the key lime pie. I'm not a lime fan, or a key lime fan, but I took our server's (Edgar) advice and got it. It was great! Not too tart, not too sweet. Excellent experience overall. Check this place off your list, and go there!

Well, the only good thing was the piece of Key Lime pie. We had the Hog Fish special, well it was suppose to be Pan Seared it tasted like it was cooked in the Microwave as well as the rice tasted like it was cooked from lunch and was a big spoon full of gummy unflavored rice. Should have stuck with our original reservation at Hot Tin Roof.

The food was average, my wife’s lobster was over cooked, my hogfish special had bones and was a bit bland. It was a bit underwhelming, the appetizers were good though (try the lobster Mac and cheese and the Key Lime pie was amazing.

We ate outside, 2nd floor. Great table and view of Duval Street. Lobster Benedict was okay, although served on overlarge, doughy, English Muffin. We ordered no Hollandaise sauce and no potatoes, substituting fruit instead. The platter lacked eye-appeal. They did not do anything to make it attractive once the "regular" accompaniments were excluded. At least 2 other KW restaurants handled this same order better.

Great service and food. Loved the setup and general feel of the place. Noise level slightly higher due to an outdoor group, but nothing bothersome.
