Offering modern-coastal fare with a distinctly local undercurrent, Lightkeepers is an oceanfront restaurant and bar that brings Key Biscayne island history to life. The Light Keeper pays homage to the stalwart “Guardian of the Light,” who watched over ships along the Florida Coast. A lively locale with a unique design inspired by the Cape Florida Lighthouse, we invite you to share in the story of ‘The Light Keeper’ while enjoying the bounty of the Florida coast. Far from exclusive, our lamp burns bright for all who need a place to rest, recharge, or revel.

Fantastic service, great view. This is exactly what you would expect from the Ritz Carlton. We had a drink in the Rhum Bar beforehand and our bartender was exceptional and knowledgeable. We then moved to the patio (eat outside, the view is what you are there for). Service was timely, the food was excellent.

Made reservations on-line and Google maps showed us the way to address. Upon arrival, could not find parking only to discover the restraunt was located inside the Ritz-Carlton Hotel $$. Valet parking added $25 + tips to the evening out. Food was good and we experienced a 5-star experience by accident. Service was outstanding. We were dressed a little more casual than most but our waiter made us feel very comfortable. Probably would not visit intentionally due to expense but a memory was made for my wife and I.

Excessively loud, heavy beat, music. Far from fine dining. Food was okay-this was the most expensive meal we have consumed so far in Miami. Cocktails were expensive, and did not fill the volume of the glass. My motto, fill the glass to the rim, or buy smaller glasses. Don’t give me a “half full” martini glass! Two filets of beef ordered medium rare came differently prepared-one very rare and one medium well. How hard can it be? Upon examining the check, I discovered they had neglected to charge us for the bottle of wine we had consumed. No gesture of thanks was offered. C’mon man!!

We were not intending to eat at the hotel....... but we were hungry and didn't have a reservation in Miami so we decided to give it a shot. It was BY FAR the best meal we had on our trip to Florida. The food was incredible, the wait staff (Hector) was delightful and the chef came by our table for a chat. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone staying at the Ritz AND to anyone on the Island.

Small portions. My husband enjoyed the salmon. My bass special was dry and bland. Desserts were a miss.

It’s pretty good and service is excellent but I feel like the food used to better when it was under prior ownership and it had even more options. It’s still good though and service is excellent

We came to Lightkeepers for our one year anniversary and we were blown away by our service from the moment we arrived. The food was spectacular and Placido was a one of a kind server. Highly recommend him and the restaurant!

Our food was just okay. We expected better for a Ritz. Also, the waitress, although pleasant to talk to, was not very knowledgeable about the menu.
