Food somewhat cold
Beautiful atmosphere and the food was great - French onion soup and lobster quesadilla. We had hoped to watch a beautiful sunset at Mallory Square, but the weather gods thought differently. Rain. Rain. Rain. Bistro 245 kindly accommodated our request to dine a bit earlier (indoors). Would definitely recommend.
Awesome. Perfect place for sunset and delicious food. Salute to all the staff from dining to kitchen and the management.
Excellent location to see the sunset. All of the staff were amazing and the food was top notch. Would visit again!
Very nice service
It was for a birthday celebration
Both of us loved our meals. The flavors were amazing.
New Year’s Day in Key West-this was a perfect spot to watch the sunset! The food was good and our waiter was very attentive. Would go back for sure!
Last lunch of 2020
Great food and environment.. love it everything..
Our waiter was awesome!
Food was very good. Nice atmosphere. Pleasant surprise. Good service.
Food was great. Right in the water.
So good. Going back again. Only restaurant we’re going to twice while in the Keys!
The food was amazing. Everything we ordered was delicious. Definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting great food. The area is beautiful, right by the water, calm & relaxing.
Great location on the water next to the Margaritaville Hotel. Menu seemed a little light however it is COVID and I’m sure a family on vacation can find a dish to please each. Try the Crab Cakes, it comes with some terrific avocado salad (be aware, only comes with 2)
Overall a good experience at a nice outdoor venue. Be sure to walk around after, many good bar’s nearby.
Best food ever!! Was a birthday celebration, wonderful from the beginning to the end!!!
great food and presentation
very creative key lime bar
our server Lauren was terrific

We had made a sunset reservation at Bistro 245 based on several online reviews we had read. Despite a mostly cloudy sky, the view, food, service and atmosphere were all incredible. Should we find ourselves in Key West again, we would definitely visit Bistro 245!
Two words: Lobster Quesadilla! It was awesome! Love the ambience and the staff!
Crabcakes were fantastic for an appetizer. Our group had the chicken, the yellowtail grouper, and the are he tuna salad. Everybody enjoyed their meal.
Being seated outside was lovely. We missed the sunset, but bet it is spectacular from the outdoor seating. Area could be better maintained/cleaner. Food was pretty good & fairly priced. Everything arrived in a timely manner. Service was ok. Waiter seemed distracted & wasn't very present.
The host was enforcing mask policy strictly and felt safe dining there.
We were very rushed and they were out of one of the two food options for Thanksgiving.
Enjoyed our dinner at here. Blackened Grouper sandwich was delicious! Our server recommended it and glad he did!
Overpriced for the quantity. Server was not overly friendly or welcoming.
Service was wonderful and the food was really good. All of this right on the water.
Great food with an awesome view of sunset
Food and service were fine but allowing other patrons to sit there blasting their own music on their cell phones was rude and disrespectful to every other person dining at the time. I get it’s Key West and the vibe is laid back but if people have no respect for others than management should have stopped it.
We enjoyed our first dining experience here and will be back.
I had a fresh green salad with artichoke hearts, hearts of palm and other vegis - super fresh and tasty! Also has the lobster quesadilla appetizer - excellent! Hubby had roasted chicken, also very good. Could diversify their menu a bit. There is a lot of competition on the area.
We went to grab apps & cocktails to watch the sunset. We had requested a patio table with a view for our anniversary and while we did receive a patio table, it was on the further back patio which means there are people standing g in front of you to watching the sunset from the pier and the pier rail blocks the view. It made the experience less enjoyable when it could have been 5 stars and an amazing memory.
The service was wonderful as well were Our drinks and the lobster quesadilla.
My recommendation would be to request the patio area at the edge of the pier if you really want to watch the sunset.
The food was absolutely delicious. Our reservation was for 6p a
and the restaurant was empty. A little confusing where the entrance was because there was no hostess to be found. But the view of the sunset was gorgeous. The Mahi platter and Snapper platter were delicious! Highly recommended.
We always enjoy dinner at Bistro 245. Wonderful setting and staff are very attentive. Thank you for a wonderful evening on my wife's birthday.
Top notch from start to finish. Hostess was prompt and efficient. Waitress was friendly and knowledgeable. Lobster quesadilla was superb. Mahi was perfect. Key lime pie was sublime. Great meal and the sunset view was spectacular.
We sat outside to watch the sunset as we had dinner so the view was beautiful but we barely saw our server and had to ask for simple things like silverware that took forever to get. The food was just average but they were still on a limited menu due to Covid so maybe that had something to do with it.
Delicious food and wonderful service! The sunset was beautiful!
The Mahi and Snapper were delicious
