  • Good for a Date

  • Great for Outdoor Dining
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.

1. Made the reservation and was told that I did the reservation recently and could not have a table we ask because it was "reserved", just a note, when we left (1.5hrs later) the table we ask was still empty.
2. Ordered a red wine (had to ask the waitress twice for the wine) then it was served chilled. Im not a professional wine taster but I believe red wine is served around 60 to 70 degrees (F), not chilled like water with ice . At least did not charged for it.
3. Sloppy service by the waitress, looks like the waitress had either too many tables assigned or else.
4. Food quality was average, not as I expect it will be or al least as good as the last time we went there.
Sorry for the restaurant, but it has gone south in overall. BTW, the waitress mentioned that all wines are chilled.

Wonderful dining experience on their upstairs wrap-around porch, even though we had some unwanted excitement (a massive thunderstorm forced us indoors between the dinner and dessert courses!) we had the raspberry walnut salad and blackened swordfish - both were excellent. Desserts we found less so...not a fan of gloppy sweet desserts, though many may find them divine. I mark the noise level as moderate because live entertainment from a saloon across the street is definitely audible on the porch...could be either a big plus or big minus, depending on the quality of the performer. We lucked out!...considered walking across the street to put money in the guy's tip jar...but it was raining too Hard!

My husbands meal the Ahi Tuna and our Lamb Chop App was delicious. My lobster meal was over cooked. Very disappointing. The waitress was nice and was very apologetic but I expected the meal to be removed since it was not eaten but the app was instead. I would go back for the tuna though.

I have been to Bagatelle before and really enjoyed it. I've recommended it to others. But on this visit we had very poor service. After we were seated at our table we were virtually ignored. The waiter took our order and then we didn't see him again until we flagged him down for the check. I know they were having trouble with their billing system but that doesn't excuse the service we received.

What a lovely old home right on Duval Street in the heart of Key West’s Bar and shopping. It’s like a little oasis in the middle of potential craziness! Excellent food and service, white tablecloths and candles. Pricey but worth it.

Our reservation was for 9pm. We were sat quickly by our greeter. We waited awhile before the waiter came to the table. He seemed tired and uninterested in our needs. He also seemed put out that we didn’t order a huge meal. (After being in Key West for almost a week, we weren’t very hungry.). The lobster mac and cheese was bland and the hogfish was as well. The chef didn’t know about salt apparently and there wasn’t any on the table. Very disappointing after the many great meals we shared throughout Key West.

Bagatelle is a beautiful and calm oasis in the middle of Key West chaos. We made a reservation on a whim and are so glad we did. The food and service was fantastic and the restaurant is beautiful!

I loved the octopus and the beef filet mignon. The meat was excellent, perfectly cooked (I had medium-rare) I had the reduction wine sauce on the side because it’s really sweet and I feel it overpowers the flavor of what is an excellent piece of meat. Also the Italian burrata (buffalo milk) is amazing, possibly the best in Key West!

We had a delicious meal with attentive, enjoyable staff. Restaurant is right on Duvall and we were seated on the second floor porch overlooking the street. We had the Key West pink shrimp appetizer and the ribeye entrée and the scallops special. All were amazing.

With a fish in the logo you would expect a certain quality- but the meat of my daughters was good - the lobster and the snapper were dry like the Sahara....
Music of the speaker compete against the live music from
Across the streets - a little to much for a joyful dinner

Very poor service. !0 minutes after being seated until we were approached by Waiter. Justin T. was the most inattentive server I have experienced in a popular , well regarded restaurant. He didn't seem to care and my 15% tip was being gracious.

Overall, food was good. Great location to people watch, and hear music from the Hogs Breathe Across the street. Food is good, but portions have gotten smaller, while the price continues to increase (YoY). We sat on the first floor porch. Our server wasn’t as welcoming as other servers I’ve had in past. Everyone is entitled too an off day.

We had fish tacos and bbq tacos for lunch, not bad. The server pushed the key lime pie as being voted best in Key West, and since we hadn't had any on our trip yet, we got it--but honestly, it was awful. Too much meringue (which was crunchy with sugar) topped a sour but somehow also too sweet, lime-less pie. We had two bites each and sent it back. Unfortunate. Maybe it was just an off day? But the atmosphere can't be beat. Still enjoyed the place immensely and would definitely return.
