Wonderful ambiance, wonderful service. AND great food. We had escargot, which were a little cheesier than we'd have liked. On the other hand, t he German potato soup and lobster bisque are incredible.
Martin's is a gem. The service was excellent and the food was over the top. Wonderful evening.
If you are looking for fine dining and a place to celebrate a special occasion this is a lovely restaurant.
Martin's offers superb food, wine, martinis, service!
Our first visit and happy with everything. Our server was excellent. He explained all the dishes to us, never rushed us and was all around professional and friendly. The menu was diversified with something to please everyone. The red cabbage was the best ever.
The decor is very pleasing and once inside Deval St seemed far away. We will return.
Great experience from beginning to end. Bartender , Magic, is awesome. Our waitress , Patricia, was fantastic as well. Many thanks !
The dog that was allowed in, non service, significantly reduced our dining experience. The dog owner did take it outside briefly when it started barking but....
Lovely restaurant, great service, fantastic food all round a lovely place.
Excellent dining experience. Friendly and knowlegable staff. Our server, Tripp, explained the nuiances of each dish with great enthasuiam. Nice wine list. Excellent martinis. Will definitely return.
Unfortunately first impressions count...2 chips out of my plate on my first course, made for a bad impression. Out of the 4 apps, the crab cake was very good. On the main course, my husband had the best meal. His Rib-eye was cooked perfectly. I had the specialty wiener schnitzel. at first I thought bland but then I got an after-taste of oil. Not the flavor you want lingering in your mouth. Our guest picked the lobster out of the pasta sauce because the sauce really had no flavor either.
Our waiter was attentive and good.
This was our first dining experience at Martins after being in Key West on many occasions over the years. We plan to make this one of our regular stops on future visits. The food, the service and the ambiance were all excellent.
I was here two years ago and the food was delicious and decided to go back with my family. The food was still great and the server Trip was fantastic. He was knowledgeable and was very attentive. Thank you!
Server wasn’t great and food was kinda eh. Fixed menus sometimes have this affect. Also the bottle of wine we selected had a dry cork, the server said “the cork breaks on all these bottles” little did she know the wine had essentially gone bad. To no fault of her own, but this trend should Have been noticed and tended to. Would try again on a regular night I guess
Valentines, engagement and anniversary
Poor start to a special evening
Everything was fine after being seated and 3 conversations with staff members over 15 minutes to get a server
After he finally came he was very good
Fine dinning, amazing wine list and cocktails, in a perfect setting right on Duval Street in the heart of old town Key west. The perfect gem of a Resturant! Highly recommended.
First time eating at Martin's. Drinks were wonderful - kudos to the bartender! All the food was delicious but felt it was a bit overpriced. Atmosphere in the back garden was very picturesque. Also loved the fact that they had a tapas menu as well.
Great food , service, and atmosphere! Don’t miss the Happy Hour.
Our waitress whose name was Patricia was excellent. We would return just to have her serve us again.
The Weiner Schnitzel is still the best we have experienced in the U.S.
Thought we would try it again...that was a mistake!!
Wonderful location on duval street and yet so peaceful inside. Great food and ambiance. Excellent service. A place for a special meal.
This is an absolute must when in Key West.
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.
Lovely food and great service at a decent price for this area.
Martin’s was excellent. The food was amazing. We had filet mignon, seared tuna and a veggie plate. Our server (Brian) was excellent.
Weiner schnitzel was outstanding. Potato Soup a bit bland and too thick
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.
Great meal, though I wouldn't consider an amuse bouche a 'course'. The food and presentation were very well done.
Food was outstanding. Very busy night and the service was on point.
One of my favorite spots in Key West! Delicious food and excellent service!
Great meal with great service. Prices reflect the area.
This seems to be the best high end dining in Key West. Try it!
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.
This is a top tier dining experience, it is pricey but worth a splurge for a romantic meal. Service was outstanding Beef WellinhGton impeccably prepared, They should consider including some additional affordable wines on the list.
By far the best meal we ever had in the Keys. Highly recommend this restaurant. We will return!!!
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.
Another great meal at Martins!
My husband had the yellowtail and I had the Wienerschnitzel. Both were delicious.
Service was great! We will be back :)
Fabulous! Food and ambiance was perfect. Our party had escargot, stone crab claws, beef Wellington, and grouper. Could not be better.
Once again, my partner and I enjoyed a delightful meal at Martin's. The choice of starters and entrees along with the presentation and table service is among the best in KW and rivals places we frequent in NYC. We enjoy Martin's whether eating inside or outside.
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
