    We've been to Martins dozens of times - our favorite KW restaurant. Tripp is their best server - entertaining and informative. Wife had Black Forest salad with grilled shrimp - her go-to meal. I had Maine lobster - ordinarily when in season I would order the local spiny lobster, but Tripp explained none were available due to the local sea conditions. We made an exception to our normal no-dessert policy and shared the Bananas Foster, which was delicious.

    We enjoyed a great Thanksgiving meal with full menu available but seasonal favorites for those in our party wanting turkey and potatoes! All dishes were expertly prepared. Our waiter had the best energy. I hate that I do not remember his name. But ex Army tall and very enthusiastic! Would highly recommend!!

    The lobster was over cooked it was horrible. Our waiter was  inconsistent took the wrong food to another table just horrible service, horrible food. The chef should just stick to German food!!!!!!! my  said that the schnitzel was good however, everything else sucks. Don’t waste your money unless you like German food.

    We chose to eat at Martin’s for our wedding anniversary dinner. Our waiter was too focused the entire time on the table next to us (some older rich local that he knew) to give us any time of day. Steak was not cooked to liking and after waiting 10 minutes for our waiter to come back to the table, I just gave up and half ate a very expensive, cold filet mignon. Not worth the money at all. Anniversary was not acknowledged. The service put a damper on our night. Very unfortunate. We won’t be back and certainly won’t recommend..

    The place was closed. They never communicated with me. We planned our day around this reservation. And they were so strict about taking my credit card #, threatening to charge me for a no show, even had me confirm my reservation 24 before! We took a Lyft there and they had a sign on the window that they were closed. I sure wish I could charge “their” credit card!!

    Spent a few days in Key West with my fiancée and wanted to try it out. I got the osso Bucco and my fiancée got the yellowfin. Both were very good. The service was fantastic and not unreasonably priced. Would definitely recommend.

    I used to live in Key West and have eaten at Martins dozens of times although not in a few years. This trip however they did not perform well. The beef Wellington was overcooked as were some of the other dishes, the drinks weren't mixed well and several had to be sent back. The service was okay, but a few issues made it sub-par for Martins. I'll go back next trip to see if this was just a bad night or if the place in general has gone down.

    The service was great, food was delicious. I did order the fettuccine Alfredo but it was nothing like that at all. It was more of oil and tomatoes with some herb leaves in it. It was good but not what I thought I was getting that I really wanted.

    An amazing dining experience. Chef’s special was dueling lobsters. One from Florida another from Maine complemented by crab meat and Beef Wellington. I need to mention the red cabbage and mashed potatoes not as afterthoughts, but as superior on their own merit We were greeted with an amazing host Tripp, who made the experience over the top. Chef Martin created the most incredible dining experience. We rarely review but needed to share this memorable and must visit restaurant when you dine in Key West.

    I can't believe this experience. My first time in Key West, and my first time here. I insisted that we go (there were 7 of us) for a bit of a fine dining experience and for martinis. We were greeted by a rude waiter, who was not only happy that I was ready for my drink order but my other 6 friends were not (they actually wanted me to order while they previewed the menu) I asked for a martini bone dry (no vermouth) I saw the bartender putting vermouth in. I told him when he came back and he said oh she made a mistake. I'm thinking he didn't write it down properly. Two of my friends from the party ordered gin and tonics and they asked for lime. The waiter then said well the tonic water is club soda with lime. I said, what? No it's not. Tonic water is carbonated water with quinine. He then continued to argue with me on that. Literally arguing with a customer and he was clearly wrong. We decided not to get dinner at this point because outside of that, he was slow (we were pretty much the only people in the restaurant) and well a bottle of Cakebread Cellars Sauvignon Blanc was $90?? Really? A $30-$35 bottle of wine selling for $90? I get that you need to make a profit, but wow on this mark up. And when we said we weren't having dinner, well the waiter creepily kept coming over to wipe our table down, slowly and methodically. We ended up going to another restaurant only a few doors down, and the atmosphere, wait staff and food were delicious!!

We also had the Wellington and the Grouper, both excellent. The experience was one of the best we have had this trip. We r going back for happy hour and dinner again before we leave. Thanks Martin’s.

    The Food was absolutely amazing and the service was top notch. The server we had his name was “Tripp”. He was amazing and truly enhanced the entire dining experience with his great energy and knowledge of the menu . This by far is the best restaurant in my opinion on the Duval strip. The restaurant is sooooo not touristy and Martini list is extensive and they are delicious.

    This is definitely a semi upscale restaurant. I ordered the Beef Wellington and my girlfriend ordered the Spaghetti Bolognese. The food was magnificent and staff was amazing. They are pricey but is so worth the service you receive. The manager was on top of his game seeing to everyone and making sure everyone was enjoying themselves. It was a great date night experience while on vacation. We will certainly dine here again on our next trip.

    What a wonderful evening at Martin’s - our first opportunity to dine at this spot. Interesting menu with some unique offerings you don’t see in KW. The sauerkraut was terrific as was the schnitzel. White wine list could be a bit more extensive, but we found a nice selection. The Apple strudel was incredible!! Highly recommend!!
