    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.

    We had a lovely table on the front porch overlooking Duval, but just far enough away from the street to have a quiet dinner. Scallops, curry, and snapper were all delicious.

    Food is great, ambiance is lovely. We prefer a seat on the veranda up from the street ask for a seat not next to the entrance but with a street view, there are fans for the hot evenings or coverage in case of rain.

    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.

    Lovely outdoor patio, unfortunately at the wrong end of Duval. Lots of loud drunks passing by as you eat. Great deals at Happy Hour, small plates are your best bet. I ordered the branzino which I don’t think was branzino, was too fatty and oily so I think it was Sea Bass. Go for Happy Hour.

    This restaurant was recommended to us and it was OK. Not great, but not bad either. It's right on Duval St., so lots to look at when dining on the patio (much better than inside dining). Our server was attentive, but there was a bit of waiting time. To be fair, she was very busy. The meals were good. The creme Brulee was described as homemade and the best. It was ok, but not great. I don't recommend this restaurant for special occasions, but OK for just a dinner out in Key West. I don't think we'll be back.

    We had a reservation at 7:00om and were promptly seated. The hostess was friendly. It was 15 minutes until our waiter greeted us, and we placed our order at that time (7:20ish). We ordered 2 entrees and a salad to split. At 8:15 we left the restaurant, having not even received our salad yet. We have never left a restaurant before like that and only did so because our waiter had only stopped by our table once during that entire time to tell us our salad would be right out (that was about 7:45…30 minutes later we still didn’t have it). He didn’t feel the need to check on us or apologize for the wait. It was a terrible experience for us and other diners, several of whom also left before receiving their food (and several who never even had the chance to order. It’s a shame that the service was so poor because the restaurant itself is quite pretty. Hopefully they get things figured out.

    Busy Valentine night. Hostess had little personality and seemed overwhelmed. Yes, we had a reservation and this is not our first visit to The Grand. Waitress seemed harsh (like New Jersey) and seemed to take our order reluctantly as we weren’t being extravagant with drinks and appetizers. Overall, food was great, took 1 1/2 hours to get just entrees. Pleasant place but staff were mostly benign.

    It was Valentine's day so it was busy but we were sitting there forever. Food had no taste and a request for salt n pepper or silverware wasn't going to happen. Service took over 3 hours. Bread was cold n served with a plate of oil. My appetizer looked like it was out of a can. Dinner food was ok but nothing great or even good. Was going to have dessert but it took too long I lost my appetite for it. The ambience was lovely. It was cold n i got a blanket n heater. Got to people watch. We enjoyed the evening, just not the food.

    In general, Key West prices are very expensive. Grand Café food is very good and the price is not the most expensive. The ambience is lovely. We sat on the porch towards the back. I have sat in the front and people watched on Duval Street as well. I have sat inside as well. It is generally a lovely place! I will eat there again😁

    Been to the Grand many times, but the speed of service was really slow this time. Took 20 min to get drinks! Then a 1/2 hour for server to return to take our food order and another 1/2 hour to get our food. Food was good, but for one, quantities small. The Scallops may have been on the appetizer menu??, but the serving was 3 small scallops.
