We had a wonderful dinner at Martin‘s tonight. Our server, Nikolai, was awesome. Very attentive to us throughout the evening and offered good advice regarding the food. I had the fillet which was cooked medium and was delicious. My wife had the lobster and she said it was very good as well. We felt it was a great ambience and would definitely return. By the way, they have happy hour every day from 4 PM to 6 PM, half-price appetizers and martinis

The experience was very good. Service was excellent. The food was outstanding! This was our 1st time and Martin's was a great choice. The Beef Wellington was great and the filet mignon and lobster were excellent as well.

Never eat here!!! This was our first trip to Key West! We have had great food and service everywhere we visited down here until we are here.. service was the worst we have had in years!! When we went to management about it he disregarded all comments. We hVe worked it the restaurant and bar service in the past and we could not believe the total disregard for our comments! Disgusting to say the very least!! Save your tips and appetite for another place! There are lots to chice from!! Chrrrtr

A great change on pace from the Key West fare of casual eating. This is a dressed up, yet laid back venue that offers superb food and wine for an upscale dining option. Great service, open air, yet under cover dining for our rainy evening. Loved it!

We are pretty sure our waiter was drunk. He kept calling our 16 year old daughter sweetie in an odd sort of way and slurring his words. When we asked questions about the menu his response was...aaaaahhhhh ummm I'll go check. The steaks were great, but the fish was mediocre at best which was a total disappointment for $35+.

Great dinner. Looked forward to it all weekend. The server was great and answered every question. The wine menu can be very intimidating but the server walked us through it. The temps of the steaks could have been a little more accurate considering the price, but still worth the money.

Had a delicious dinner with my husband here on Mother's Day. Restaurant was flexible when we arrived early for reservation and took care of us right away. I was pleased that the 1/2 price apps and drinks for Happy Hour carried over to the restaurant too. My husband wanted to sit on Duval and people watch - I wanted something a little nicer than the traditional tourist fare - it was a great compromise. We both had the Grouper Dijon - one of the best preparations I've ever had. The service was attentive, not intrusive. Prices affordable and food delicious. Will return here, likely sit outside, on next visit.

The one and only thing that bothered me was this. I asked the server if you carried Jim Beam Bourbon as I wanted a Jim Beam and Diet Coke to drink before dinner. The waiter, and unfortunately I don't remember his name said, said yes you had Jim Beam, but he also said something like this, we have Jim Beam but we also have a selection of better bourbons to choose from....and he went on to list several brands and suggested Four Roses....Well I appreciate the selection and I appreciate the server telling me what you had, but what struck me was he said in effect that my choice of Bourbon was second class as he had some better for me to choose from.....I know it is petty but you asked for a review and I wouldn't have said a thing about it, but you asked and that is the answer.....Other than that the server was very good and I believe I gave him a good tip also....So that's it....thank you

This was my first trip to Key West, I found this restaurant listed under fine dining read the menu and made a reservation. This was a great experience. My wife and I decided on the tapas menu but we will be going back to order off the main entree menu our next time in Key West. We were seated outside on the patio under a tree and the weather was great. Our server, "Trip" was attentive without being intrusive. He made several great recommendations and was always there when our water glasses started to get empty. We highly recommend the scallops florentine on the tapas menu. If you are looking for a memorable evening this is the place to try in Key West. We will be back.

Martin's is always a winner in Key West dining. Decadent beef Wellington and delicious nightly fresh catch specials. The grouper and yellowtail always deliver. My personal favorite is their Florida lobster tail with blue crab meat...the best! Oh, and the martinis are divine!

We enjoyed the food immensely but were disappointed that we had a reservation 2 months in advance for a birthday and we were not seated in the dining room, rather the bar area which had no ambiance. Also, in an effort, I believe to accommodating, the waiter was at our table every 3 minutes to "check" on us....

Bon rapport qualité prix pour Key West ou on trouve helas souvent quasiment au même prix de mauvais restaurant pour touristes

We had a really pleasant meal at Martins. We were at an indoors table next to the bar and so perhaps missed some of the buzz of eating outdoors where everyone else was, and that's why I've downgraded some of the scores

We were a little disappointed at calling ahead for a reservation for our anniversary only to find the outdoor seating full, but the food and service were good, especially the catch of the day fish my wife had. The atmosphere is good for a nice quiet dinner and the wine list is one of the best you will find in Key West. I would recommend Martin's to anyone looking for good steak and/or seafood at a reasonable price. If we ever return for another visit, Martin's will be on our list to repeat.
