A great experience. Our server was attentive but not overbearing. The cocktails were delicious and the food was amazing!
Our only complaint was that there were only 2 desserts on the menu. Everything else was great. Loved the atmosphere (we sat outside). All of our entrees were delicious.
Came in on a Friday night and ordered cocktails. Both Manhattan and my husband's drink were generous and strong. We had the filet mignon and whole yellowtail snapper. Both were expertly prepared and delicious! First Flight is highly recommended and we will be back soon.
Looking forward to trying some of their brews.
We sat on the rooftop and enjoyed the music being played below in the courtyard. The menu was nice because the kids and the adults found items they liked. That was not the case at all places in Key West.
Loved the hostess and the locale/ambiance. Our waiter had a bit of an attitude so that was unfortunate. We would go back and just hope for a different waiter!
Service is great. Food is good - not excellent, but good. Deviled eggs were great - reminded me of my mama's - and the accompanying fried jalopenos were excellent, too! My seared tuna wasn't really seared - it was obvious it had been put on a griddle for a few seconds on each side, but it wasn't seared so that was disappointing. It had a good taste. Everything was covered with the same teriyaki-type sauce, vegetables and fish. I prefer my fish not be sauced. The flavor is too mild and sauce obscures it. Next time I'll ask for the sauce on the side. My husband had the fish of the day. Same story, same sauce. The noise level isn't the restaurant's fault. Their music was very nice - until the band across the street cranked up. It was noise, not music, IMHO. Since the restaurant is outside, there wasn't anything they could do about that. The ambience was fabulous - outside under the big old trees with perfect weather.
First Flight is top flight. Best seared tuna ever.
Great food and service. Loved the flatbreads. Great outdoor seating
Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable. The fish tacos were awesome!
Highly recommend visiting here!
Very nice place! Fantastic atmosphere, and great service. A definite go to when in Key West
Great astmosphere, beautiful gardens. Food was good, beers were good.
It was a great experience!! Lovely food and staff!
Fave spot and the owner Damien, is truly fantastic! Top restaurateur on KW. A must go to spot!
Great food and good service. We sat in their interior patio area and it was beautiful. Love that the restaurant is in the Pan Am building and they have done such a good job preserving that atmosphere.
Showed up early and had a cocktail at bar which we then brought to our table. Waiter took our order and never checked on our table for over 40 minutes while waiting for our food to be brought out. He had 4 other tables around us that he was servicing and just when we thought he was coming our way he would take off towards kitchen. At first we gave him the benefit of the doubt that he was busy but in the end he appeared to be clueless. Beautiful location, food was OK at best and service was,unfortunately, a zero.
Service was fantastic
Good food! Cool spot!
Great history in this old Pan Am Airlines office/House. The food was delicious,many choices and appealed to all in out party. Steamed clams were a fantastic app!! The staff was great and the atmosphere amazing and perfect for our dinner. Outdoor seating was very spacious and clean.
Fantastic first night dinner in Key west. We ate outside on the patio. The atmosphere was great, live music from across the street was playing. Food and drink were delicious. Excellent intro meal and to key west.
Our first visit, won't be our last. Felt totally safe. Food and service exceeded expectations.
Very good! Love the atmosphere
Great courtyard for outdoor dining! Nice bar area for something off Duval. I highly recommend it.
Terribly crabby waiter. Kind of killed our happy vibe. $200 I’ll never get back.
Ambiance was great. Mixed reviews on our group’s food. Expected the tuna to be cut thinner with a crust on it. First batch of clams were cold.
wonderful service and made a special occasion even more special.. food was amazing.. servers bright , happy and cheerful.....
Food and service were exceptional! Loved the atmosphere as well
Lovely venue. Gorgeous outdoors dining area. Good good and fantastic service.
We love coming here, always great!
Our Thanksgiving dinner at First Flight was wonderful!!
lately their food quality has gone down hill quickly. Food pensioning from Filet, then under cooked burger, so sad. Used to be our favorite place, but no longer.
Daughter celebrated 16th Birthday here. They had a Wonderful large table in the corner for us. They expressed their birthday wishes to my daughter and brought her out a slice of cheesecake with candle lit.
It was a beautiful night outside with the lights, not too crowded. Felt safe and the staff was really nice. Really good find for a quiet dinner in Key West!
It was an incredible little hideaway. Doesn’t look like much from the outside but when you go inside-very pleasantly surprised. Spacious, romantic and the food was delicious! Highly recommend
Great location to get away from the hustle of Duval and enjoy personal time with friends and family!
A lovely restaurant to sit and dine under the stars. It's in the building that was formerly the original Pan Am Airways. Ambiance, service and food were delicious! We will be back on our next trip to KW.
Wonderful restaurant. We had a very good time on a Friday night. The service was very good. the food was delicious.
Loved this restaurant. We went for happy hour twice during our vacation. Food and drink were amazing and so affordable. Loved the look and feel of the old Pan Am office. Live music was right across the street which was great and not too loud. Would recommend to anyone heading to Key West!
Nice relaxed vibe. Enjoyed ourselves despite a little drizzle. Waiter was super nice guy. Always great to try their latest brew.
I found this place by accident as I was walking from Mallory Square. This is the birthplace of Pan Am, as I found out. The food was very delicious. We sat in the backyard patio. Our server Jovana was very nice and helpful.
First time there was amazing. Walking distance from Margaritaville. What a hidden gem. Our cab driver recommended it. Can't wait to return.
