What a great find! Zach and Crissi were so attentive and friendly. They did a great job meeting our request for gulf-side seating and a birthday celebration. The food was delicious and dining during a Mallory Square sunset (but without the actual chaos of Mallory Square) was perfect! Highly recommend Bistro 245!

Outstanding Sunday Brunch. The food was fresh and tasted great. Every bite was worth taking a second and nothing sat out too long, was soggy or cold. The chefs did an amazing job preparing food that turned over constantly. The service was a little slow and the only food we didn't enjoy as much was the desserts. They were placed by the window and it was very hot and everything was a little melted. Other than that, the price tag and every calorie was worth it!

We were staying in the Margaritaville Hotel of which the Bistro is a part. The view is unbeatable, facing west over the water to the Key West sunset - spectacular, though you will want to go outside to fully appreciate it.

The service was fast and pleasant, the food was tasty, abundant, and well-presented. Try the seafood cocktail! And the drinks were nicely concocted. This is also the source of the room service breakfasts at the hotel - they too were marvelous!

Was so excited to take my husband there for Father's day brunch. The food was good except the warm food need better warmers. Also, we made reservations for 1PM and exactly at 2pm, the kitchen staff began breaking down the buffet line and did not replenish food as the time got closer to 2. Was very disappointed with that. Other than that, we would be happy to dine there again as long as we get what we pay for akd not rushed out.

Our waiter Al was awesome our drinks and coffee were never empty, We had gone on Sunday for the brunch , go with an appetite there is so much food , everything was delicious and the dessert, yum. Everyone was friendly from the moment we were greeted, a smile from all the staff .

I enjoyed my visit - but found the reservation misleading - I thought I was reserving a table for Sunday brunch to find out it wasn't being served until later in the morning. At that point it was too late to make other arrangements. Still had a very good meal, and enjoyed the breakfast.

Portions were generous, but food was only so-so - not really in line with reviews. Sat outdoors on a Saturday night with music blaring from next door. was nice enough being outdoors on a mid-late May evening in Key West, but certainly could have been better. Service was decent, though we waited a bit for main course. No big demerits, just should have been a notch better.

We thought the food was fantastic! Overpriced but It was really good. If your looking for sunset dinner might want to think of another place.you need to be up higher than the crowd. Everyone was crowded in front of us and we had to get up and look over top of them. Holding our phones high over heads for a beautiful picture. Not what I thought it would be like but we did enjoy it after the people scattered a bit.

We will be leaving Key West soon and wanted to have one more Sunday Brunch at Bistro 245. The food is top notch. A good selection of breakfast items plus a made-to-order omelette station. The dessert selection is plentiful! There must be 20 different choices. There is also a hot station with different main course choices, vegetable, starch and carving station. But my favorite is the salad station and the fresh seafood bar. There is sushi and various salads on the salad station. The fresh bar always includes oyster, shrimp, crab claws (I'm sure I ate at least a dozen), and smoked salmon. And I forgot to mention bottomless mimosas or champagne. We were lucky enough to go on a gorgeous Key West day with the temperature around 70 degrees and no humidity so we had a table for two outside. I highly recommend Sunday Brunch at Bistro 245.

We had Sunday brunch here and it was the best ever. The selection is incredible and the service was attentive. It's a buffet set-up and offers everything you can imagine including oysters, sushi and traditional breakfast fare. We loved the creme brule over chocolate mousse.

Food was very good. No vegetarian options so had to ask for something to be made. Chose the restaurant b/c it is on the water and a good place to watch the sun set. However, live music (4-7 PM) was VERY loud and not that great; made talking impossible.

 (Hawaii)·Dined on February 12, 2017

This was our first trip to KW. My brother suggested we make sure to do Sunday brunch at Bistro 245 so we arranged our flight to arrive a day earlier in order to do so. I had no idea that booking at 9am was too early and that brunch didn't start until 10am. My brother thought they only did brunch on Sunday and didn't realize they also offer a breakfast menu. That wasn't clear when I booked it. Breakfast was good but not spectacular. When I asked about brunch when we were seated and were told that it didn't start until 10:00, the girl didn't offer any suggestions or options. The hostesses weren't that welcoming. Maybe they're new at their job? The waiter was very friendly and made menu suggestions. Overall disappointing!
