    It was a hot night, and our waiter seemed to be less than thrilled to be working. My dinner was beautifully presented and delicious (I had the scallops.) We love watching the Duval activity while dining there.

    Food was rather mediocre and expensive for the quality at $200 for two. We sat outside and fought flies during the entire meal. Management had no fans or other devices to discourage insects. The woody ends of the asparagus on one meal had not been removed. The rice in my dish was dry and crunchy. The lock on one of the women’s restroom stalls was misaligned and would not fasten.

    The food is always delicious and the ambiance is always so special. Location, location, location. Great spot for people watching outside or just enjoying a nice meal with family or friends inside. Service could have been better this time especially since we explained we were attending the event across the street but maybe they were short staffed this night.

    We made reservations at Grand Cafe on Duval before attending the Earth Day concert at Key West Theater (which I HIGHLY recommend for next Earth Day!). Our party of 5 saw a table towards the back and side at which we asked to be seated, and the host mentioned that we may deal with spent buds falling from the tree above. They placed a large patio umbrella over our table and that seemed to keep most of the buds from reaching our table, cups and plates. Our server, Dano, was awesome. He had a very peaceful demeanor, but an awesome sense of humor and a high sense of customer service. He was simply wonderful! Our party ordered the grouper, the baked Bronzini (sea bass), a seafood combo, the seafood pasta and a filet. All beautifully presented and DELICIOUS. Dano made sure that we were able to take advantage of happy hour prices on drinks and for a couple of us, use our Women's Club dining card (a must have if you are in Key West for a month or so and plan to dine out often - get awesome deals at very popular restaurants and contribute to some very good causes in the Key West area (such as Kids Come First, KW High School scholarship program, Boys & Girls Club, MARC House, Special Olympics Monroe County and so many more!). Make reservations for Grand Cafe.....it is a popular destination with a great location and delicious food with wonderful service and a great ambiance - so be sure to reserve and guarantee your great dining experience!

    Delicious food and extensive wine list. The scallops in the key lime beurre blanc were exceptional. Covered patio seating, situated above the sidewalk, allowed for a nice breeze and good view of Duval street. Indoor environment is so relaxing and cozy but also elevated. Loved this place!

    This was our first time at The Grand Cafe. It definitely won’t be the last time as we will be locals in a couple of weeks. My husband and I shared the Norwegian Smoked Salmon which was excellent. I had the seared scallops with saffron rice and a key lime beurre blanc and my husband had the tilefish special. Both were really delicious. Shannon was our server and she was attentive and informative. We wish be back soon!

    Not impressed. After many other great dining experiences at other Key West restaurants, We were so looking forward to having dinner at Grand Cafe. Very disappointed. Would not recommend or go back. Each of us felt sick all evening after eating there. Meat undercooked. Save money and go elsewhere.

    Complete lack of service and the food quality is low . The atmosphere is fine, pleasant , right on the street watching pedestrians. The dinner lasted 3!! hours because of inattentive service . We had to wait at least 30-40 minutes to get water , bread . Then it took another 40 minutes to get her back , then at least 30 minutes to get appertizer . Over an hour for the main meal and at least 45 min for dessert . It was the longest dinner ever !!! Not good

    The last time we ate here, it was perfect..which is why we brought friends this year. I made reservations for outdoors ahead of time, and was looking forward to enjoying the street views with friends. Once we arrived, they tried to seat us inside, we said no. It was for outdoors. There were 2 tables that could have been pushed together. They said no. Yet, another party of 8 had a large table outside in the front. We made reservations. You knew we were coming. Instead, we were led around the corner of the porch out of view. What a disappointment. No views. Instead, we were stuck out of view away from everyone...including our waiter. Our waiter, Gerald C, looked and acted like he would have rather been elsewhere. Poor service. We rarely saw him and when we asked for salt, we ended up having to get up and seek salt from another employee there. Poor service, bad location despite reservations and others allowed to have a parry of 8 in the front...what a great start to our Key West trip. Food was good. But everything else sucked. I never give bad reviews, but tonight, it was called for. Value your customers more...especially when they are a large party spending money..and teach your waiters to act like they are happy to be there . . Tonight was a huge disappointment

    We had high hopes based on previous reviews. Found service to be slow albeit polite and friendly. Food was okay. Kids Mac and cheese from a box which is lazy. Everything just basic. Building is lovely inside and location very central but still a little loud and lacking the calm, upscale ambience of other similarly priced restos on the water and in hotels.

    The location, ambience and comfort were great and so was our server. You’re right on Duval but in a comfortable setting. The food is ok; the fish and meat for each entree was tasty but the sides were very basic (canned orange segments and some sticky noodles didn’t complement my beautiful tuna steak). But overall we had a good time here.
