The food was amazing. The atmosphere and view divine. Our server Michael was impeccable and extremely professional. Look forward to our return visits. Thank you Latitudes
It was amazing, the food, the service, everything was excellent.
What an awesome place to celebrate Amy occasion! Eddie really made the day special and took pictures of us which really made the day special.
It was even more than we had anticipated!
From shuttle over to the end !
Really fun to take the boat to the restaurant, it really added to the experience. The steaks were very good, the drinks were great, but the lobster was just OK. Everyone had carrots in their dish-and they were hard as rock.
30 minutes prior to your reservations is the earliest you can caught the ferry to the restaurant; Don’t try and go earlier to have drinks!
My wife ordered the steak tenderloin and ended up spending the night in the bathroom. She said it just didn't look right but being at Latitudes eat most of it. We will not be back.
Fabulous view, service, food! The ambiance was beyond words! The tiki torches lit our eve on the sand while we dined on local delicacies. The menus actually lit up! The waiters were on point servicing or every need!
I booked a table at Latitudes for my son and his girlfriend, for their 21st Birthday celebrations and they tell me that they had a magical time. Service, food, and attention to detail were fabulous and both of them were made to feel like their dinner date was a really special occasion. Thank You,
Amazing. Hands down the best dinner I have ever had! The sunset view was out of this world and the service was impeccable. I recommend making reservations for 6:30-6:45 so you are on the island just in time for the sunset, you will not be disappointed. The lobster was cooked to perfection! I can't wait to go back.
This place was amazing... from the atmosphere to the food and service. Some places you definitely have to try when you are in Key West!
Crab & lobster roll ... no lobster and very small for &21.00 . The turkey & pork belly was very lacking.... mostly bread. The fish tacos were very good.. The boat ride to the restaurant was enjoyable. The view was amazing at the restaurant. The beach and property was very clean and beautiful. And when asked how everything was I did express my feelings about the food ... The waiter said oh yes some one else said the same .
By far the best restaurant we found on vacation in key west. Went twice!!! Fabulous service, great food!
We really enjoyed Latitudes!
After several years reading the mixed reviews I decided to make a reservation for lunch figuring if it wasn't good we could have a good dinner to make up for it.
It exceeded our expectations!
It was fun to ride the air conditioned boat out to the island. The restaurant is beautiful with that old club feeling of dark wood. We opted to sit inside even though I had requested an outside table. It was so hot and humid that day I knew it would not enhance the experience.
The lunch menu is limited, however they cover all the bases from salad to fish sandwich to a steak. Everyone can find something to eat. I had the the Sunset Salad with Salmon - seriously, it is one of the best salads I've ever had. Beautifully presented and the salmon was cooked absolutely perfectly! My partner had the grouper sandwich which, again, was presented beautifully and he thoroughly enjoyed.
The wine list is good, covers all the bases and prices.
For dessert we shared the espresso cheesecake. It was really very good. I am generally not a fan of flavored cheesecake as most are not done well. This was good! Nicely presented, not as a wedge, rather as a bar with drizzled caramel.
Truly, we had a great lunch and we will go back.
It was a great time and we'll worth the calling ahead of time to set up your reservation. We definitely enjoyed ourselves.
Beautiful setting for a fabulous meal!
Perhaps my expectation was a little too high as I was hoping for a 'better-than-average' dining experience. The environment is lovely and we arrived early to have a pre-dinner cocktail outside. That was great. Dinner, on the other hand was a disappointment. Our server came to take a drink order but after 1/2 hour he still hadn't returned and we had to get up and go find him. The service was slow and unattentive the entire meal and that made it very hard overlook the mediocre food. My French onion soup tasted like watered down beef broth. I ordered the lobster and crab cake for my entree which was very good but by the time it arrived I was over it. Maybe they were understaffed that evening, I don't know, but we definitely paid the price--literally.
We were seated outside. Nuts from the palm tree fell and hit my friend twice. Once in the head and once in the arm. Then the waiter spilled her drink on her by sliding it across the table vs picking it up. The food was excellent. Large portions.
We came to Latitudes to celebrate my husband's birthday during our vacation in Key West. What an amazing little slice of heaven on earth! This is a must see / must try during your stay in Key West. A quick little boat ride to Sunset Key for an amazing dinner with an incredible view. If you can't sit outside, just ask to sit by the windows (what we did). We were able to step outside to snap a few photos when the sun set. A server was kind enough to take a photo of us as well, which turned out to be absolutely gorgeous (it looks photo shopped!). It will definitely be printed and hung in our home. Thank you for a lovely evening! Much love from Ohio. :)
This restaurant is absolutely beautiful! I can't wait to return. The food and drinks were all delicious and the service was great! I didn't want to leave. I can't recommend it enough to everyone.
Latitudes was the perfect restaurant to celebrate my 50th birthday. It was the most amazing experience I've ever had at a restaurant. Everything was perfect from theview, ambience, food, drink and especially Derek, our server. He was very knowledgeable and kind. Thank you to everyone at Latitudes for making this the most special birthday ever.
We had an amazing experience for lunch! Our meal was beyond expectation. We sat at the bar for a more casual dining experience and our bartender made the experience even better. The only thing I was dissapointed in was that I made a phone call the day before asking about a corking fee and was told they did not have that option only to arrive and find out they did. Can’t wait to go back!
The restaurant has made some changes. We arrived 15 minutes early and with tables available outdoors, our preference, the hostess made us wait and never checked in with us. We were later approached by what seemed to be the manager and she gracefully attended to us. We were able to be seated at our favorite table. We were surprised with the lighted menu, very nice touch but the lighting on the menu draws bugs. We ordered the grouper dish served with solely coleslaw and the scallop dish. I was disappointed they changed the scallop risotto dish, but ordered the alternate option available. The potatoes and carrots were under cooked and the bok choy tasted earthy. We literally ate two baskets of bread to make-up for the sides. The service was mediocre, our waiter was unenthusiastic. The French Rose was very good. We actually ran out of the restaurant to make our ferry not to wait an additional 30 minutes. I will watch the sunset from the harbor and explore other Key West relics.
I took my wife here for our Anniversary. The ferry to the island was comfortable and relaxing. Quite a difference from the Liberty boats to Hong Kong, China.
For appetizers, I ordered the Waygu Short Rib. My wife, the Classic Onion Soup. Let me tell you, the flavor of both were simply out of this world. The meat dissolved in my mouth while leaving a yearning for another bite. The Onion soup had amazing broth. Although the Swiss that they used was a little sweet for our taste but good nonetheless.
For Entree I ordered the Braised Wagyu Sirloin, and my wife ordered the Chicken plate. Once again the meat just melted away in my mouth. It came paired with a roasted pepper purée that did nothing but compliment the seasoning on the steak. As well as two fresh and homemade onion rings. The batter was light and soft but still crunchy, which I can’t really explain. Overall was delicious and well portioned meal.
The chicken came with a single bone hanging out of it, my wife made short work of it. I couldn’t elaborate more on the chicken being it was so good she didn’t want me to try it. More for her I guess haha.
For dessert we ordered the Espresso cheesecake, and the deconstructed apple pie. This was where we experienced the only hiccups of the meal. I am allergic to blueberries and forgot to inform the staff because, well I wasn’t thinking. Luckily for me the blueberries were not touching the cheesecake and were easily brushed aside without any mishap. The cheesecake was rich and really ended the night on a good note. The deconstructed Apple Pie has some room to grow. The apples didn’t have much of a taste aside from apple, and were slightly mushy, which is to be expected from baked apples. It also was cold, would have probably been better warmed.
To end this review I have to say, if the Wagyu Short Rib was offered as an entree with larger portions it would be beneficial. I much prefer the taste of it to that of the sirloin. Both are amazing, don’t get me wrong.
Well, it was a very romantic dinner. Everything was beautiful. However my wife and I who flew from Boston to come here for this special dinner was a little disappointed with the service. We had a reservation, we added notes that we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. No mention of it, our water glass didn’t get filled until we asked, bread didn’t come out until after we asked for it. So while the atmosphere and scenery was amazing, the service was really bad. The restaurant wasn’t even busy. Not sure how they missed out our special occasion and how the service was delayed.
It was amazing. They even delivered the Credit card I left... However the girl delievering it was wearing the sunglasses I asked if were left. Yes it was my fault. Yes I let it go but still very awkward. I told here I loved them and let it go (she said it was a gift)... strange at best. But the view was impeccable!!! 🤷♀️
Vacationing in key west and looking to try all the best restaurants. Latitudes is certainly one! Going back for a second dinner!!
This wonderful Setting is always nice to come back to. Food and service are consistently excellent. Perfect horizon for sunset.
Starting with short boat ride to the Island, then sitting outside for late lunch was so nice. Trees and water view worth the time. Key Lime colada was best drink all week!
Always looked at sunset key when watching the sunset & festivities on the pier. Decided to give latitudes a try for breakfast. Excellent food, service, ambience, & ferry service. This will be on our short list of things do to when visiting Key West. Prices are reasonable with free private island ambience & ferry ride.
If you are visiting Key West you MUST experience Latitudes at least once. The ferry ride over is short and if you time it right, you can see the beginning of the sunset- great photo op.
Plan to arrive before your dinner reservation time so that you can enjoy a drink at the outside bar with a very friendly bartender and a fantastic view.
We dined inside next to the window due to the rain and truthfully, the view and ambiance was so spectacular that we did not feel that we missed out on anything by dining inside. We are looking forward to a return visit.
We were vacationing in The Keys and Latitudes came highly recommend. The seating outside was lovely it had rained very hard prior to our arrival so staff was trying to clean up the areas for other reserved outdoor tables. The waiter was so so at first, maybe distracted from the storm. Anyway we ordered drinks before beginning dinner, we were shocked at how little alcohol was in the drinks at a free pour area, hardly colored the whiskey water We shared a good wedge salad which was quite well prepared and the kitchen divided for us. We ordered the Surf and Turf , i requested medium rare on my 4oz filet , it was served medium, flavorless served on runny bland creamed potatoes and the lobster was the tiniest I have ever seen, tough no flavor served without butter or lemon. I had to ask the waiter My husband said his was horrible At 60.00 a plate you would think it would have been much better. Very disappointed. The Sunset was amazing however, so that made up for a lot of what the dinner lacked. The Key Lime pie was pretty good - I would return for Sunsets and Pie only
Taking the water shuttle to the restaurant was quick and easy. The ambiance and food quality was excellent at the restaurant. I would recommend this for any trip to Key West.
AMAZING service, wonderful food. Will definitely return!
Favorite place I've eaten in Florida. The food was ridiculously good. The view was awesome and taking the boat over was pretty fun. Great experience.
Everything about this restaurant was amazing!
Great food. Great service with a spectacular sunset view if you time it right. Michael gave excellent service. We will be back next trip to Key West.
Last year we celebrated our 52nd anniversary at Latitudes. Had dinner at this beautiful spot with delicious food once again this year. Hope to celebrate our anniversary at Latitudes again next year.
Fantastic view...food was amazing!
There is nothing quite as beautiful as a Key West Sunset as viewed from Sunset Key and especially seated on the beach with the torches behind you. This is such a lovely, romantic, and unique setting to celebrate or enjoy a special dinner. The food is quite good though I would have liked a more varied menu. The wines are delicious and the service is excellent with knowledgeable wait staff and kind and accomodating receptionists. I highly recommend taking the boat over from Key West and experiencing this lovely gem.
