    Excellent dining experience for a birthday celebration. Great menu variety with seafood and steak options. Beautifully presented. Servers are attentive. Cocktails are wonderful. Beignets make the meal as a fantastic dessert.

    Very small intimate restaurant with great upscale food. Our waiter, Wilson, was amazing and helped us choose the perfect dinner. A pricey dinner. But worth every penny!!

    In our opinion, the best restaurant in Key West. Love this restaurant. Joanne was our server and did an excellent job. She certainly knows the menu and did a great job answering all our questions. Dinner was fabulous. I had a salad and pork Osso Buco. An abundant serving, very moist and absolutely delicious. My husband had foie gras and the duck entrée. He said it was wonderful. A rather small but always busy restaurant. Be sure to call in advance!!

    This is our, "visit every visit" place. Traditionally when we arrive in Key West, this is our first evening restaurant of the trip. Great food and staff. Ask to be seated along the front window and be prepared to be pampered. From great drinks and entrées to a thoughtful Chef's muse - the bread is to die for. Make a reservation and have a great evening.

    Really lovely environment and service. Food was excellent, best bit of swordfish I’ve ever had, cooked to perfection. Felt like NYC pricing though.

    Didn't know how to cook a steak to medium and medium rare. Then realizing it, all the chef did was reheat and replace and reserve the same steak but switched them. They did the right thing and took them off the bill and took care of it. We took care of the serving staff and manager that made it all right in the end. Should never order a steak outside of Nebraska!
