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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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 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.
