We have visited La Te Da several times, always a favorite! This was the one place we visited this week that did not have a pared down menu. As usual, salads, entrees and deserts were on point! Consistently knowledgeable, attentive service.

We were in Key West 5 evenings and this was the best place. Outstanding in every way. Ambience was nice, we were not rushed, food was superb. We pointed out one minor item, manager immediately came.over and addressed it. Great guy and our waitress was wonderful but we dont remember her name but she was from Michigan.

The food was prepared perfectly. Not a single ingredient was overused. Best Shrimp Scampi I have ever had. Definitely will be going back.

Not Good! After reading the reviews we had thought we found a great place to enjoy dinner in Key West. That was not the case! First, the host was very rude. We showed up and he barked what time??? Then said stick out your wrist for a temp check , follow me. Left the menus on the table and left. The waiter showed up 10 minutes later to get our drink order. When the drinks came we knew what we wanted at it had been some time, dropped the drinks and left. We put in our food order about 35 minutes once we were sat. The French Onion soup was salty and tepid at best. The Filet was tender but the sauce was over powering. The stuffed chicken was dry, dry, dry.... Halfway into dinner the dining room next to us (seated outside) started with entertainment. Three singers, who make most American Idol try outs look good. Off key, loud, and just plain bad. It took the waiter again forever to come back and give us a check. Bad Service. Bad Food. Bad entertainment. Bad Host - was rude to several people in there as he walked by us several times and just wasn't nice. I would stay away from here!

Pasta with tomato sauce tasted like out of a can. Also no one asked if I wanted any fresh parmesan cheese. the chicken with Dijon sauce had no flavor and minimal cheese on inside . A beautiful setting but food was below average, very unhappy with food and service

Excellent spot to watch the sunset. Small plates are a great way to try several dishes. Large plates are big enough for two. We sat inside but would request outdoor next time. Our server Peter was very attentive and on top of our needs. Overall A+.

Popped in for lunch. So glad they are on Open Table so we knew we could have a table to eat. Burgers, chicken sandwiches, and French Dip were all fabulous. The wedge salad had a bit too much dressing for the diner but other wise was good.

Our Birthday Dinner at La Te Da was incredible! I’m somewhat of a restaurant snob having worked in a fine dining restaurant previously, and La Te Da absolutely nailed it in every aspect! Service and course timing was perfectly executed. The Beef Carpaccio app was fresh and delightful, wedge salad was the best wedge salad I have ever eaten with a blue cheese dressing that knocks your socks off, and the filet mignon and crab cakes were cooked to perfection and perfectly paired with the rest of the dish. We requested to sit by the pool, and were lucky enough to get a table there. The atmosphere was stunning. I broke my leg right before coming down to Key West and am confined to a wheel chair, and this dining experience alone was worth the trip with a broken leg. Not to mention how easy it was so maneuver in the wheel chair to the table. Could not be more pleased with La Te Da and 10/10 would recommend this place!

Atmosphere was wonderful, food fair, service very slow. Was very disappointed to get a bill for 4 people, 2 of which shared a meal with one glass of wine and the total bill was greater that $175. They charge you for each glass of soda, ridiculous when you’re paying at least $40-$50 a meal. Would not go back.

Everything was great but when you make a reservation make sure to ask that you are on the 1st floor. I got seated on the second floor and it wasn’t nearly as nice as the 1st floor

We ate here for Easter brunch. It was a beautiful morning and we had a table next to the pool. The prices were very reasonable for Key West and the food was delicious, especially the challah French toast! I also loved the lemon strawberry Bellini. Our server was very attentive as well. Definitely recommend!

Must have been a busy night because we waited over 1 1/2 hours for an appetizer! The special (delicious scallops were hot and perfectly done) but placed on a bed of "warm" assorted vegetables 9not hot). Martini was good, We were upstairs and it cooled down while there.... a little cool upstairs.
Great music in the bar...
