Lovely spot for brunch, a long standing tradition in the Keys! Terrific service. Had a wedge salad that went overboard on dressing, literally swimming in it. That was a disappointment but the fish sandwich was absolutely wonderful.

We think La Te Da is the best brunch in Key West! There is a variety of menu choices including typical brunch items as well as lunch. Delicous Bloody Marys too!

Our evening at La Te Da was just wonderful start to finish. Service, quality of food, atmosphere couldn’t have been more enjoyable . I was touring guests from France and had limited expectations given the tourist nature of Key West.
As a native Floridian, who loves the Keys, but find no need to go all the way to Key West, on any future occasion La Te Da would be on the top of my list!
I tried to thank everyone there and express my appreciation and I hope my review adds a little bit to it

Food is always amazing. This time, however, the service was poor. The waiter was completely overwhelmed by his section. Did not bring bread, never came to see if we wanted more drinks. I had to get up and let him know we were ready to order. Once food was served, he never came back to check up. Had to walk over to receive and pay check. Gave himself an automatic 18% gratuity. Service was so bad, mgmt returned the gratuity. The manager was very nice and understanding. Just an off night I guess...

We shared the crab cake meal as an appetizer. That dish was absolutely fabulous. My main meal the Mediterranean pasta was also flavorful but was disappointing in portion and lack of eggplant

Great food and friendly but slightly slow service. We dined outdoors and near enough to hear live music in the piano bar. Freshly baked bread with soft honey butter. The asparagus with truffle oil and cheeses is delicious. The passion fruit salad with grilled shrimp is both healthful and tasty.

Excellent menu choices. First visit and owner welcomed us
Waiter was informative and attentive.
Filet was great. Ribs were delicious. The lobster Mac and cheese appetizer was delicious and a large serving. Definitely large portions overall.
Many wine selections !
Definitely worth a visit. We will return.

The court yard is a lovely setting. Our waiter was efficient and service was smooth. All of our meals were considered delicious - duck was crisp but not dry, the snapper special was excellent in a lemon piccata sauce. Our pasta lover was pleased with the seafood Alfredo. Almost forgot the delicious red kale salad, a pretty presentation and a lovely light dressing. Wines by the glass were reasonably priced and there was a fair selection.
We always enjoy dining here.

This was our second time at La Te Da. And like the first it was fantastic all the way around.

We had the Filet mignon and the catch of the day Snapper. Both very good. Great service.

We dined here on our vacation. The restaurant is a beautiful setting with lots of greenery overlooking a beautiful pool. The food was excellent and the atmosphere and service were great. The restaurant also has a great bar for drinks before dinner and good people watching along the street.

We have dined here many times in the past. The food is good but could be better and the menu has not changed in several years. The service is very good and it is a pleasant outdoor dining experience.

We were pleasantly surprised when we walked in to La Te Da, it’s beautiful, warm and very inviting. Food and service were both excellent. We also attended the Drag show afterwards, featuring Randy Roberts. It was great...very entertaining. Highly recommend both dinner and the show.

Several items were unavailable and some items seemed overpriced. We have been here numerous time over the past several years, It seems that the value and quality have gone down a little.

Wonderful night altogether. We are local and entertaining guests who suggested La Te Da’s. Food was excellent especially meatloaf..a surprise! Service a bit slow but was busy so no criticism. Will be back again. Stayed for show in bar after dinner. Was great entertainment. We really had a blast. I would make La Te Da’s a MUST visit when in KW.

We sat at the bar the bartenders were awesome Amy and Elaine.
Oysters Rockefeller were very good.
Prime rib was mediocre at best chewing and no flavor. The mashed potatoes seemed like they were cooked the day before and warmed up which is unacceptable since we had a 6:15 reservation and the facility opened at 6 p.m.
The yellowtail Snapper special again was mediocre the fish was not fresh( a lite fish odor with each bite) , the rice was terrible it was dry resemble something between instant rice and once frozen and reheated.
The service and the atmosphere was so enjoyable it made up for the poor food.

Initially the noise level was very loud from a birthday party group nearby. However the excellent service and the food won out. Somewhat more pricy than I had anticipated even for Key West, but it was an enjoyable evening.
