Incredible experience, first class from start to finish. Top notch food and impeccable service. Great value when you consider the cost of the items like beef Wellington and stone crab. Well worth it.

Really disappointed. Hard to find by location. Food was disappointing as well as the wine list and the service . Had higher expectations. Lobster and shrimp tough and the Alfredo was tasteless and soupy.. seemed the attention was on a large party inside! Will try again!

Went with friends for a mid afternoon lunch. Grouper sandwich. Shrimp and arugula salad were fantastic!

Highly recommended and the view is spectacular!!

We stopped by for a quick brunch on a Thursday morning before taking a cab to the airport. The menu had a nice selection of brunch standbys and a few dishes with a gourmet touch. I had the coconut French test with bananas and strawberries - it was a huge portion and satisfying! My husband had the grilled salmon Benedict and said it was good which to others would be very good.

Came for new year's Eve. 3 had prime rib and 1 had fish. Everyone loved their dinners. Service was excellent. Only complaint was red wine was chilled. A little too cold for outside but they moved us in with no problem. Lovely evening.

We thought the Bistro 245 was an OK restaurant. The Food was fine but not outstanding.
However it was New Years Eve ( in a resort location) and as we all know sometimes quality suffer as the crowd gets bigger. I have eaten there at other times and it was "very good".

I have lived here for 8 years, but never had the opportunity to dine at Bistro 245. It was a wonderful experience. Our waitress was attentive and courteous . Will definitely be back!

I ate here when the Hotel was a Westin and it was awesome! One of the best meals I had in Key West. I looked so forward to going back. Now as Margaritaville, I cannot recommend this restaurant. The food was not good, it lacked flavor, the fish was bland and the quinoa had absolutely no taste at all.
