Seafood
Originally from New York, Owner Big John brought his love of Italian food to our little island. He then married it to his love of tropical birds and established the restaurant in 1989. The huge portions and creative cuisine quickly made New York Pasta Garden a local favorite, and we continue that tradition to this day.
The fresh seafood and friendly staff will keep you coming back for more! We offer the largest pour of house wine you will find on the island and a have great wine list by the bottle. We strive to have something on our menu for every palette and dedicate ourselves to make your experience both memorable and delightful.

    Another great meal. This place has become a go to place when I am in Key West for good food. They gave everyone a baby artichoke appetizer to try. It was so good definitely something I would order on my own. The chicken parm entrée was great as well. Love the food here!

    My only complaint was the rolls that they serve you tasted like day old bread. You had to use a knife to cut through the little rolls. This was our second time. The first time we were there before Christmas the rolls were fresh and warm. Tonight they were hard and stale.

    We finally found the place and we were the only people there, slow service- did not speak other than drop off food - looked as if staffing was the issue, others came and stood at the stand to come in but no one came and they walked off

    Made reservations for New Year's Eve. Required a $20 no show fee per person. Entrees were okay. Appetizers and desserts were a joke. Definitely not worth the $150 cost per person. They also include a 20% service fee without telling you. I noticed an extra $40 charge on my account a couple days later and that my reservation on OpenTable had been removed. I was able to get the reservation added back my to my Open Table account. I had to call the restaurant SIX times to get the $40 charge removed from my account. All except one person I spoke with were extremely rude and hung up on me twice. I don't know how they stay in business with crappy food and service. Do not waste your time at New York Pasta Garden! Our dinner at Latitudes was much better - and cheaper!

    We booked for new years, with a threat of a charge of no show. On arrival there was a new menu that was over priced with minimal options. The menu differed from the one advertised. The menu, in fine print, said ask for children’s menu or vegetarian menu, we asked for both and were told they have neither. The food was blah with no flavor. Service was mediocre at best. To top it off they add a 20 percent mandatory service charge and then tried to dupe you by adding another tip option for the bill. I’m sure there is better in Key West

    Food was mediocre at best. Caprese is 2 tomato slices and 2 slices of mozzarella for $17. Choice grade filet for $53 is a terrible deal. Will not be back.

    We were visiting from out of town, and it was my birthday. I wanted good Italian, but didn’t know the area. Picked NY Pasta Garden on Open Table and hoped for the best. It was wonderful! We sat on the piazza, which was lovely to enjoy the outdoor evening air and have the sound of the fountains and festive white lights hanging above. The service was excellent. Great options (including gluten free) and the food was incredible. The garlic bread they serve while you wait for your meal is otherworldly and melts in your mouth. The wine pours are generous. You definitely need a reservation. You won’t be disappointed!

    On our arrival, the hostess was both hostessing & bussing tables. Service was OK, food was very good. Biggest concern was the “service charge” added to the bill & still begging for more tip on the bill.

    While we understand it was Christmas dinner, the pork chop was super over cooked and the rolls were stale. Also, beware of the “auto-tip” amount they add that they do not tell you about. Those we’re the only downsides, everything else was good!

    We had reservations for 12/24 @7:00 for 9 guests. We arrived at 6:50 and they told us the manager gave our table away and we could sit outside, we’ll that would have been fine except it was 50 and the wind was 17 mph . I made these reservations a month in advance because of the holiday . I’d just be careful about confirming a reservation here.

    This is a regular dinner spot for us. Because it was a holiday, we made reservations which we confirmed and the restaurant preceded to lose. Or maybe the hostess was a complete incompetent which I can see by the way she handled our party and many others that we saw looking to be seated. There were several tables available when we arrived, but because we "did not have a reservation" they seated us at a table outside of the regular dining area where we were basically in the square's walkway which was super annoying. We were even approached by a homeless person begging for money during our meal since we were on the outskirts of the restaurant. They would not seat us at another available table as there were only 6-tops open and we only had 4 in our party. But 10 minutes after we were seated they seated a group of 2 at one of the 6-top tables. Anyway, our waiter was decent and attentive and the food was delicious so it was not a horrible experience. But they really need to either train the hostess better or just get rid of her altogether. She really was rude and just incapable of doing the job.
