    Well, I almost hate to put it out there, but this was the best experience and food that I have had in KW in a long time. Having spent 25 years in Asia, I say they nail the flavors! And the quality of each dish is extraordinary. I wish them all the success that they deserve with this new venture and hope that there is always a seat for me. We ate there last night and I am sending friends in this evening. It is that good.

    Absolutely amazing. We are from Atlanta and literally have the best restaurants in the world and this one tops them all. EVERYTHING we had was amazing! The menu was amazing; not too many choices but lots of great options. The food came out very quickly... as well as our drinks. Our server (I am horrible at remembering names; not to mention, I had many drinks before we arrived) was amazing. (She is from South Africa with the most beautiful accent and personality). Get there early before they get busy as they will sell out of many dishes and you really get great great personalized service :)

    This is one of the best restaurants in Key West. You won’t find Japanese style like this anywhere else in Key West. They have a special tasting which includes saki tasting and chefs choice of around 10 dishes or you can make reservations and order off the main menu. Can’t go wrong either way

    Fabulous, innovative food of the highest quality. In a town that has numerous restaurants with high prices and mediocre food, Atlas is a stand out. The menu is creative and offers something for everyone, even if you are not a Sushi eater. Plenty of vegetarian options as well as chicken and meat to supplement the super fresh fish. Highly recommended!

    Unbelievable hidden gem in Key West. Take the tropical vibe of the Keys and then the quality of the food in NYC and you have Atlas Izakaya. This is my fourth time and will continue to go back and try more things. Thank you for being great hosts.

    We loved our first experience at Atlas Izakaya! Our server, Fernando, was top notch with a great personality. We mentioned that we were excited to try their vegan options and he was excited to bring us several options starting with a delicious house salad featuring a ginger vinaigrette. Then he brought out some sautéed Serrano peppers 🌶️ that rocked our taste buds followed by a fried tofu dish that was delicious. Then he brought out a lovely watermelon sorbet topped without crushed chilies. We can’t wait to go back.

    Imho, this is the best restaurant in Ley West. I’ve been there three times and it gets better ever time. We had the ten course chefs tasting meal and it was fabulous. Ten things not on the menu. The menu is excellent too. I can’t say enough good about this place.

    Very accommodating staff and beautiful ambience made for a fantastic way to celebrate our friends birthday. We didn’t know what to expect trying some new foods but everything was very delicious and we were pleasantly surprised. Our 3 year old loved the fried rice with chicken and he can be very picky. Our compliments to the chef!
