We loved the menu. Each dish was splendid - lobster bisque, yellowtail Imperial, beef Wellington, and a lovely dense chocolate torte. All perfect for us. Very pleasant surroundings. Our best dinner in Key West so far.

I'm a local, and if you're looking for a classy happy hour spot, with a great wine list, martinis and tapas, then this is the spot. But if you're considering anything beyond that, then I recommend, you pass on Martin's.

You can chill drinks by how cold the bartender and most of the wait staff are. Once we were finally seated, our waiter turned out to be the exception. Aside from him, don't expect the staff to be very inviting. The night featured a $125 per person "Special Four Course menu", which wasn't necessarily special as it just featured a couple selections from their existing menu. The opening chef's amuse bouche was a small potato pancake with cream cheese and caviar on top. The caviar brine flavor complimented the acidity well. Then I had the crab cake appetizer, and thought it was well put together; it wasn't overloaded with bread crumbs and fried like you would find at most places. It was light and a good starter to set the stage. My entree was the beef filet. Good cut of meat, but the preparation and accompaniment wasn't anything to write home about. Bearnaise was bland and offered little on the plate other than color. The broccoli, was well, just broccoli. I ordered the Creme Brûlée for dessert and it was satisfying; hard to mess up custard with brûléed sugar on top.

Glancing at their regular menu after the fact, I could have pieced the same meal together for less than $65. My wife's meal would have come out $79. The only special menu feature was the minuscule potato pancake. There was no wine or champagne included in the $125 per person charge. There was in fact, nothing special at all about their menu.

Friday evening dinner for two reserved a week in advance. Requested outside seating with a pet. Seated quickly at a table out of the way. Waiter did bring water for our dog. Menu was mediocre, as was the food. Filet was a bit tough and with no proper steak knife it was difficult to cut. Small vegetable servings. Service during and after meal was so-so. Patio was so dark I couldn't read the bill. Not sure if I left an appropriate tip or not. Will not return as there are so many better places to eat in Key West.

 (Charlotte)·Dined on December 3, 2017

I wanted to go to Martin's on Duval after my wedding- and watch the annual Key West Christmas parade. I made the reservation on Open Table the day it became available, and asked very clearly for their patio seating, which gives a great view of the street. That didn't happen. We arrived on time to find 2 larger parties occupying those tables. I guess first-come-first-serve doesn't apply here. We were seated inside, but next to the front window where we could still see the parade.
Our server was a little occupied, but no one else came to our table anytime soon to take a drink order. I ordered lobster caribe, $36. I was a good size, but tough and not succulent. No sauce or melted butter offered. my spouse felt that the mushrooms on his dish were canned.
Dessert time- our waiter brought menus, then went outside to watch the parade. He wasn't gone long, but right in front of us? Outside our window? Something just seems a little off about that. This restaurant used to be five stores last time I visited three years ago. I can see now why the rating has gone down. Wouldn't return.

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

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+.

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.
