The service was excellent, our waiter Jay was awesome. The wait time for our food was long. There were no more than 5 tables and there’s no way we should have waiting 30 minutes for entrees.

Horrible experience. (Party of 12) The spilled mussels on a jacket (expensive) no apologies from the owner. They had no clue who
Had ordered what. Double billed us on a couple of entrees. Then owner comes by, who confirms that he had witnessed the whole mess, and gave us a 10% discount... what an insult, and when told about the jacket again... again, no apology. Horrible management. Will never return

The pork belly was super salty and the paella is far far far from authentic. Loved the ambiance and the singer who was super talented and way fun.

We had a wonderful visit to this great restaurant. Originally, we had been referred to another restaurant, but after looking at the menu, and a torrential downpour of rain, we chose to come to Mangoes instead as is it was closer to our hotel. We made a great choice! The food was delicious, and the key lime pie was the best I've ever eaten.

Food wasn’t that great. Server was awesome, entertainment was fantastic. I wouldn’t go back for the food though. It’s too bad. The location was great and ambiance. So many places to eat in KW.. they need to step up their game.

Please be aware that the menu online is different from the actual menu. Also two out of three of us had to choose another menu item because they were out.

Also, I tried to pay with Amex and they said it couldn’t read my card. I had just used it prior to eating. I think they didn’t want to accept Amex. Overall disappointed.

Made and confirmed (twice) a reservation for outside, yet they took advantage of the fact that my children checked us in (I was parking) and they forced them to take a table inside.

Food was terrible- nothing fresh or homemade. all was previously FROZEN. Yet they charged an arm and a leg

Waitress was terrible, only came by once and then proceeded to tip herself 20% on the bill. Best part was that she did not bring and then would not give us an itemized receipt and did NOT tell us (purposefully) that she had tipped herself. She was clearly ripping folks off for an extra 15-20% tip (again on overpriced, frozen food). Only when pressed did she admit she had already tipped herself

DO NOT GO HERE

The menu sounds good and the food overall tasted well, I just thought it was very over priced. I ordered the loaded pineapple which was considered a salad. The menu didn’t mention rice in it and let’s just say that for $27 it was more an appetizer portion. I do not think it was worth the price or considered a salad just because the put some lettuce next to it. Ingredients wise it was probably about $3 to make. Our waiter also messed up one of the parties dinners and wasn’t very apologetic and kind of accused us for ordering the wrong thing, though he was the one that got confused. He was kind of spacey.

Thanks to Opentable we had the prime table reserved for us right at the corner of Duval & Angela Street, so we got to take in the Key West culture while we dined. The food and service were great.

We were provided with excellent service at first by a very nice gentleman (can’t remember his name) in the beginning of the evening. Then they switched waiters on us halfway through. Shandra took over and treated us horrendously! She came over and asked if we wanted another drink, and we kindly declined. Then she just kept trying to rush us out every time she walked by, pressuring us to buy or leave. This wasn’t like over an hour or something, it was over the course of just a few minutes. I mean we just finished a round of drinks and a meal in a half hour, give us some time to enjoy the ambiance and settle! After a few minutes she came over to give us our bill and said “you guys are ready to leave right?”. Nope. We ordered a slice of pie and closed the check (we really would’ve stayed a lot longer). We come to Key West at least once a month and love Mangoes. Such a shame over this mediocre service we received. Won’t be returning.

2nd time dining here. The first experience was so amazing topped only by the company..
I had built this place up in my mind to be really spectacular.
The food and service is still very good , but It felt less intimate than what I remembered from my first visit. The back half of the seating area was not being used at all. I would have preferred to be seated there as it is much further back from the street and noisy distractions along the sidewalk.
There are so many interesting places to eat in KW, I will likely rotate this one out for a bit while trying some new experiences. But if you’ve never been, it is definitely a very respectable place for dinner with good service and atmosphere.

Our server could not have been any nicer! The place is clean and inviting. The menu is rather small but there is something for everyone. Two of the 5 of us had overcooked fish and it was a little rubbery and the other 3 meals were excellent.

This place is awesome - from top to bottom, it checks all the boxes. The live music was entertaining, the drinks were delicious, and the atmosphere was super cool. Service was spectacular- Mariana was fantastic, attentive, and so pleasant! Most of all the food is *phenomenal*! Come prepared to eat.

I needed somewhere to take guests and this was the perfect spot! Great location right in the middle of the action! All 3 of us loved our dinner! I personally had the lobster mac & cheese and it was wonderful! Outdoor dining made for a pandemic safe atmosphere. The band was so fun! Can’t wait to go again.

I came for first time to this restaurant three years ago and the food was outstanding, in particular a hummus plate that I won’t forget , so based in my experience I wanted to go back while visiting Key West, but the second time around wasn’t that good, the hummus plate does not exist anymore , vegetarians don’t have much of a choice , but service is still great and the ambiance is good, there was a band playing , it is a bit pricey though !

Arrived early for our reservation and was able to be seated right away. Friendly hostess and manager. Great table on the patio with a live singer. Service was excellent and quick to help us move when the rain came. My only disappointment was due to the very limited menu due to Covid 19. I have previously eaten at Mangoes and really enjoyed the food. This time not so much. Again, I understand the circumstance of COVID 19 but wish there were a few more options on the menu.
