We ordered three appetizers, and two different entrées, but weren’t blown away by any of the entrees. The pork belly was an odd combination of flavors, the crabcake appetizer was very good, as was the tuna tacos appetizer. Everything else ( the short rib and the fish entree) were just mediocre. I do not think that we will come back. That being said, the view was amazing, the restaurant is very well appointed, and the service was five stars.

Wonderful dining experience. Hostess and manager were friendly and gave us a great table overlooking the water. Waiter and bus person were a great team as water and plates were taken care of promptly. Waiter was great and we weren’t rushed and were able to see the sunset. Food was the star though. We had the Latin short ribs and the seafood paella. Appetizers were creative and tasty especially the grilled shrimp. Wine was priced affordably. One of the best experiences I’ve had in key west. The manager even went so far as to continually monitor the sun and raised or lowered the outdoor blinds as needed for the perfect view. Music from downstairs can be loud but was enjoyable as the band was very good and the selections fit with the dining experience. Can’t wait to go back.

Food was fantastic. We opted to share a few small plates rather than each choosing a dinner entree. We ordered:

- spicy tuna tacos (SO yummy)
- lobster mac n cheese (typical)
- charcuterie (needed accoutrements)
- the shrimp (DELISH)
- the pork belly (solid)
- the chorizo empanada (YUM)

The service was awesome. Gorgeous view of the sunset. The decor is in need of some updating but we didn’t mind since everything else was stellar.

The menu had too much heavy dressings and seasonings. Lack of fresh simple real food. The salads were a little bit of leaf and a lot of cheese, bacon and loaded with heavy dressing. Not elevated at all!

It is unfortunate that a restaurant with great service and good food would serve their red wine by the glass chilled. There is no excuse for a good restaurant to not know how to serve red wine.

The balcony has a lovely view, try to go early so it’s still daylight/sunset.
The food was good, but I was expecting more. I’m a seafood lover and felt like it could be fresher (or maybe it was overcooked, but I was expecting a softer lobster and clams).

Not worth the money. Small portions, even by fine dining standards. Our charred octopus consisted of one small, skinny little leg. Food was lacking seasoning. My portion of fish was also small. Wife had to add salt to her lamb because it was so flavorless. She also thought it tasted like it had been frozen before and reheated. Small poor on my glass of wine. I would not recommend and we will not be back.

My wife and I had dinner at The Hot Tin Roof on our trip to Key West. I had the Seafood Paella and my wife ordered the thyme and butter poached lobster. We love seafood and Hot Tin Roof does a great job!! Also, their Key Lime Pie is the best I have had.
Everything was exactly as we expected it to be.
We had a 7.45 pm reservation for outside seating and due to difficulty finding a parking spot, called them ahead of time informing that we will not be able to make it. we finally reached at 8.05 pm and the staff was very accommodating and even found us a table outside with a beautiful view.
We were served by Oleg and he was fast and very knowledgeable.
Overall a great experience and will definitely eat here every time we visit Key West
