    We very much enjoyed our dining experience at the Grand Cafe. The waiter provided efficient, friendly and unobtrusive service. The chef(s) cooked and prepared excellent appetizers, main courses and deserts. Finally, the Grand seated us on the porch of the old house that provided just enough exposure to the street, but far enough to converse without any noise disturbance. Overall, an excellent dining experience.

    Martini was excellent. Food overall was good- however overcooked my husbands steak so had to get that recooked. No manager came by after issue with steak which is surprising. Service wasn’t great; unprepared or under trained? Have been many times and no issues in past so maybe off night.

    Sitting right in the midst of Duval Street, the Grand Cafe is an oasis of elegance. The menu features local favorites, and most of the seafood is locally caught. The service was excellent, and we had a great view of the comings and goings on Duval (plus some good music from nearby live artists) as our entertainment. This was our first visit to the Grand, and I’m sure that it won’t be our last!

    Please avoid this restaurant, the food was fair at best, dinner came out cold, service was good, cleanliness was awful. The bathroom was beyond disgusting, it could not have been cleaned within last three to six months, spoke w/ management, responded w/ a nod & a smile. Following day, we had stomach issues. So many great places to choose from in this area, unfortunately, this is one to be avoided.

    We had an evening planned with very good friends. The Grand Cafe was recommended and the bonus was it was on the Key West Women's Group dining card. To keep things short, our waiter, Carl, apparently was not thrilled to be working that evening. I tried to even break the "ice" with him by asking him his name and tried to ask a little about how he came to be in Key West. He was not having any conversation other than taking our order. Our party ordered an 8 ounce filet (definitely not 8 ounce, but it was tasty), the whole fried snapper (tasty), the Branzino (there was some type of green goozey liquid underneath the fish that was less than appetizing, but the top half of the fish was light and flavorful), the fourth person ordered the scallops. For $40, three scallops on rice seemed a bit over-priced. There was confusion on the Women's card, too. Half priced happy hour and the card could not be used together, so we suggested two bills, one for happy hour and one for the dinner so we could take advantage of both. Carl felt this was asking a bit much, said he would see what he could do and would have to discuss with his manager. He allowed the discount for both - but he did so with a demeanor of extreme annoyance. Customer service is EXTREMELY important. We felt we were a burden to Carl. As a restaurant owner/manager of 4 stand-alone, unique concept restaurants in a high tourist area in the Midwest, I was embarrassed for Grand Cafe. We did not share this with management that night. Instead, we will probably choose not to return to Grand Cafe in the future (we live here 1/2 year).

    This was a delightful place to sit on the outside deck area and watch people walk up and down Duval street. Our crab cake appetizer was savory, crunchy on the outside and delicious. Our dinners were good. My scallops were a tad over seared and tasted burnt on some bites, but the inside was great. The asparagus was perfect. The drinks were refreshing. The ambiance was the BEST!!! We asked the server for a new knife and they just gave us the other persons unused knife at the table. I thought that was odd since I had used it to cut something. I would’ve just gotten a new knife for the customer. Otherwise, it is well worth the ambiance.

    Lovely outdoor seating on Duval St but in a garden setting so you feel removed. Shared a surf and turf tasting plate for $40 and everything was tasty although the sauces were quite heavy. Would definitely return!
