    This restaurant offers a small but tasty selection. The service is efficient and friendly. The atmosphere is open and casual. By and large I would offer a moderate to strong recommendation but way short of a “must go.”

    It is very convenient if you are staying at the property but the food was not the best. Highlights were the appetizers! But were two and they brought out my entree first then when we finally got someone’s attention to check on the other dish they offered to take the steak back to keep it warm while we waited for his octopus. When it finally came the fish was so over cooked it was inedible so we shared my dish and had a delicious dessert. So if we stayed at the Ritz again I’d give it another try because breakfast was delicious

    The updated menu is appealing: lots of choices clearly conveyed and among different categories. However, two areas are lacking: salads and desserts. The dessert menu is highly limited and over the top in richness--it would have been nice to have it include mixed berries, a simple apple pie or tart, a not-too-sweet carrot cake, a SIMPLE chocolate cake, a gluten free option, a mixed sorbet dish, or (from my memory) the old beignets with dark chocolate and mango sauces. Also, it would have been nice to have a simple lettuce-based salad or two on the menu, which you used to have a couple examples of. The caesar salad proved too rich along with the branzino that was cooked in way too much of its fatty sauce. The roasted carrots were overly charred--unhealthily burned. Would have been nice to have a simple side like grilled zucchini and/or steamed spinach etc. And the tomato tart of the old menu was sorely missed. it would have been nice to have the dover sole entree come with a small side salad and/or a few small roasted potatoes. So overall, a nicely improved menu mostly in the entree section, but some healthier but gourmet options needed in the other sections...

    Wanted to go to Lightkeepers for a change of scenery, although I live in Key Biscayne. I figured the Lightkeepers would live up to the reputation of the Ritz chain of hotels. I was very dissappointed and honestly will not go back again unless they get a new chef. I ordered the simplest of meals, pasta with tomato sauce. The pasta arrived and tasted like mush. There was barely any sauce, no flavor, had to add salt, pepper, needed to ask for cheese and more sauce, I felt like I was desperately trying to make something out of nothing and that I was doing all of the cooking. In the meantime my dish got cold and I gave up and told them to not bring it back to me, I had struggled too much to try and make it taste good and realized it was hopeless and honestly, just lost my appetite. My fellow diners ordered fish and they too were dissappointed, no flavor. Dinner ended up being very expensive and definitely not worth it. However, the staff was wonderful and nice and very understanding. They offered dessert for free. The manager came to see me and told me that next time I should just not order the pasta dish, when in fact that does not resolve the problem of the dish being prepared poorly. If they cannot do a simple pasta dish correctly then just dont put it on the menu or maybe consider a shake up in the kitchen. Restaurant certainly does not live up to Ritz reputation. They will always get hotel guests to go but, certainly will not get repeat local business if they continue that way.

    Wir wurden herzlich empfangen und erhielten einen schönen Tisch auf der Terrasse. Der Service war sehr aufmerksam und freundlich. Wir haben uns zur Vorspeise für ein Bluefin Tuna Crudo und für Crispy Vegetables entschieden, sehr zu empfehlen. Genauso wie das Veal Milanese zum Hauptgang, exzellent! Zum Dessert erhielten wir einen delikaten Schokoladenkuchen, eine äusserst aufmerksame Überraschung zu unserem Hochzeitstag! Wir kommen wieder.

    I have a hearing issue and had asked for a table in a quite area, which they accommodated perfectly. We are gluten sensitive and (to our surprise) they had gluten free bread available. Our waiter, Lamas, was very friendly and made some wonderful recommendations! The pork skirt steak is not something we would have ordered but it was amazing!! We truly enjoyed the overall experience!

    I had the Miami Spice special for $28.00 a tasty salad, fish sandwich and chocolate cake. My husband had the shrimp cocktail (3 shrimp), hamburger and cheesecake. Everything was prepared great and service was excellent. We were there on a Friday and ate inside but with a view to the outside, including seeing squirrels and two iguanas go after scraps.

    This is the third time I have eaten here in 2 years. While the food has gotten better, the service is not up to par for a Ritz Carlton. We ordered cocktails with the appetizer and were being rushed to order our entrees too. When we ordered the entrees we ordered a bottle of wine. That came out and was poured while we were only half way through the cocktails. Inside is very loud and you constantly hear the receipt machine printing orders. For the price and it being the nice restaurant at the Ritz it's not worth the money.

    We recently stayed at this beautiful Ritz Carlton property on Key Biscayne for my birthday weekend and had Sunday Brunch at Lightkeepers. The food was delicious, beautiful presentations and the variety was amazing, breakfast food items, entrees, seafoods, meats and desserts. However, for $135 per person, we did not feel it was worth the cost. We didn't expect the meal to be inexpensive, and happy to pay for quality, but $135 with taxes & fees, close to $150 pp for brunch, is insane!
