Best food selections for a buffet but a bit pricy. Awesome view of the harbor but partial view since there was a cruise boat docked

Pretty bad food and service although our waiter tried to control what he could. The table next to us got their food before us despite arriving after us. We waited over 40 mins for a burger and pasta. Nice location if you want to sit after sunset but basically pretty bad all around.

We have been visiting Bistro 245 for over 10 years. We usually visit for Sunday brunch (like this last visit) but also for sunset celebration.
The variety of food, quality of preparation and the service are all remarkable here.

The view would have been wonderful, but a giant cruise ship was blocking it entirely. The blackened grouper sandwich was good, but the lobster quesadilla was soggy. Not what we expected based on their Open Table rating.

Food was expensive. Very small portions. Not crowded but service was less than stellar. Another table left because they were waiting too long - in an empty restaurant- after only waters left on table and no server ever appeared. Would not go back.

Excellent food. We weren't expecting much since it's in a resort - Margaritaville. But the food was delicious, good portions, lot's of lobster in lobster Mac&cheese, fresh and tasty fish, and the crab bisque was excellent.

Went here when we knew that no cruise ships were in to obstruct our view. The meal was great, burgers and the arugala & shrimp salad. Keyime Martinis and white wine with lunch. Fabulous views that live up to the Weston ambience.

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!

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 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.

We arrived for Christmas dinner at the time reserved. The hostess was indifferent and ruid. She could not find our confirmed Open Table reservation and finally said it doesn’t matter. She asked if we wanted to be seated inside or outside. We said inside because we didn’t want to be seated next to smokers outside. We were escorted inside. The entire restaurant was empty but for one table with a family of 3 at the middle table in front of the window looking out to the sunset. We were seated at a table next to the door of the kitchen and the outside service door. There were 2 dining rooms and no one else was in either room and only 2 other tables were set after we arrived. The restaurant was empty. The noise from the kitchen was very loud. The cigarette smoke from the outside came in on top of use every time the door was opened. We ordered a bottle of Saugivou Blanc anything but Kim Crawford. The server brought us a Kim Crawford. I could go on but $137 later the food was passable. I would not go back and would not recommend this mediocre restaurant to anyone. We had enjoyed such an gracious evening at Michael’s the night before and were looking forward to a wonderful evening for Christmas dinner and were very disappointed. Not a restaurant I would recommend to anyone.
