    Drinks were so so. Never had someone put ice in a old fashion before. Steak cooked perfectly but lacked some seasoning. Seafood pasta and Conch fritters were amazing!

    Over priced. 4 people dinning and 2 plates came out way before the other 2. They finished eating before we got our food. Waitress acted irritated that 2 of our 14 year old kids wanted to order off the kids menu. Would not recommend.

    Service was great! However we asked for a steak med well, and it took 3 times and still wasn’t right. Would I still go back when I’m in town? Yes, because things happen and everything else was amazing.

    Great location. Outstanding server. Unfortunately, can’t cook a piece of fish correctly—and everything we ordered needed seasoning. Nice outdoor setting, inside and bar area are just plain weird.

    The first issue we had was we were seated up against the house and wedged in a corner. It was too hot of an evening not to have any air flow. Our mistake for not asking for a better table. Then two of our cocktails came out tasting terrible. Not sure if it was a new bar tender but when I asked for a Aperol spritz and got Compari with persecco without being told, (they were out of Aperol) it was so nasty I couldn’t get the taste out of my mouth. Then my friend was served a terrible skinny margarita that was sent back. The food was better than average with the exception of the burger. They said the meat was 100% beef but the texture and consistency were way off. It was so firm that it was hard to cut. No one really likes it at the table. I’d give this place another shot but it would need to really prove themselves to me.

    Went here 1st week in May...had early dinner reservation so was not crowded when we arrived but became busier as the evening went on. My husband ordered a whole red Snapper and I had the black sea bass. Fish was ok, but not well seasoned at all. The accompanying black beans and rice were not seasoned either. Key lime martini and Bruschetra appetizer were both very good. Atmosphere was upbeat as this restaurant is located right on a busy street where many walk and across the street from bar with live music. If you are looking for a quiet romantic meal you may wish to be seated inside.

    Food was good. Service was good. But if we had used the ladies’ bathroom prior to eating, we wouldn’t have stayed. Toilet paper holder and paper on the floor, toilets looked like they hadn’t been cleaned in weeks. One door wouldn’t close. Just all around gross.

    This was a 75th birthday celebration. The wait staff didn't recognize or care about this special occasion. Our waitress was exceptional and very caring and knowledgeable. She was very attentive. The food was way overpriced and the local snapper was very expensive. The hamburger was way overpriced as well and came out overcooked. The fries were not made from scratch. We had to send the hamburger back twice but the kitchen staff was very amenable to that. I don't mind paying top dollar for a meal but these prices were really costly and the meals were not worthy of the price. It is also important that the host who was dressed in a t-shirt and jeans was not a good representative of a high end eating establishment.

    For our last night in Key West I went to OpenTable to see what restaurants were available and look at the ratings. Grand Café had really good reviews. We arrived a little before our reservation and we’re glad that we did because they had a fantastic happy hour. Any appetizer or any alcoholic beverage half-price till 6 o’clock. We had a tuna tartare and fried calamari, both were delicious! For dinner my wife had a seared Aji tuna and I had the Seafood pasta. Both were good though the pasta could’ve had a little bit more seafood! Overall good experience and I would highly recommend the grand Café

    The ambience of the restaurant was very nice, Key West Vibe! Service was terrible, there is no other Way to describe it! The food was good once it came, no complaints there. I’m not sure if the restaurant was just overwhelmed, lacked Staff or this was the norm. I would go back and try it again!

    Das Grand Café ist in einer alten Holzvilla mit überdachtem Balkon beherbergt, viele Sitzplätze sind im Freien im großen Vorgarten an der Duval Street. Der Geräuschpegel hängt vom Trubel auf der Partymeile ab, das Restaurant selbst ist ein eher ruhiger und gemütlicher Ort. Das Essen war wirklich gut, besser als erwartet, der Key lime pie zum Nachtisch ist die Empfehlung. Die Preise waren sehr moderat, auch für den Wein und die anderen Getränke. Alles in allem ein „sichere Sache“ in absolut zentraler Lage.
