About the restaurant
Key West seafood restaurant in the heart of old town on Petronia. The menu is kept small so that everything is nice and fresh for you. Yellowtail snapper, fish of the day, Key West pink shrimp, and seafood medley highlight the menu.
Deviled Eggs topped with Scallops, Shrimp Mango Toast and Crispy Pork Belly Croustinis tantalize the pallet. Beef stroganoff made with certified black angus beef is a favorite.

Relaxing, unpretentious, and romantic.
Seating is very limited.
24 Hour Cancellation window.
For the consideration of our guests, we do not accept parties over the size of six (6).
We offer a 6 pm and an 8 pm seating.
BEER AND WINE AVAILABLE.

Wow. Simple quality ingredients with imaginative cooking brings amazing dishes. The deviled eggs with scallops are one of the best dishes I had in recent years. We had the sharing lobster bake appetizer which was good. Main we had the seafood medley (pasta dish) which my better half said (out of the park) dish. I had the scallops main which came with spinach ricotta tower- excellent dish although a bit heavy if you try to finish the cheese. We shared their key lime pie for dessert. I am not a fan of key lime pie because it is served in many places across the country and it is usually mediocre at best. Well NOT here, it’s a personal slice that we shared but we will come back for it as it was delicious. Btw, the men’s bathroom has a boombox playing and the women’s has a record player. One note, they don’t have an espresso which would have ended the dinner perfectly. Highly recommended.

Every dish we ate was absolutely phenomenal. All the dumpling and Rangoon options are great choices. The best broccoli I’ve ever had the pleasure of eating. 10/10 experience.

I love the 4 course menu. It’s the right amount of food. Everything is prepared so well. I had the pesto buratta, the key west pink shrimp, the snapper and the cheese plate for dessert. YUM! Make a reservation early as it books out quickly.

Simple. Good. Food.

From humble beginnings over 20 years ago, Seven Fish has earned its place as a Key West Classic.

Serving the freshest local fish in a casual, contemporary bistro setting, it is the perfect finish to your Key West day.

Unpretentious dishes, with a commitment to only the finest ingredients, and made from scratch every day, it is the meal you don’t want to end.

There is something for everyone, lovingly prepared to exceed your expectations, including our specialty drinks and inspiring wine menu. Be sure to save room for one of our home made, classic desserts.

You will love our beautiful new building, enjoy our warm, friendly staff and come back again and again for the remarkable food.

Open table stated that there was only 9 seats available. I almost decided to go somewhere else because I thought it would be too crowded. When we got there 80% of the tables were empty and never filled up. Just wanted to let you know.

The service was fantastic. We were celebrating our anniversary and were treated to glasses of Prosecco and the island chips and salsa. The menu is very limited. One of us ordered the market fish, black grouper, which did not seem cooked very thoroughly and was slimy inside. The other of us does not eat seafood, and order the beat salad with chicken added. While it was delicious, it is not a full salad and the chicken was just on a side plate. We were seated at what is likely the prime sunset table, but the sun was still in the sky and was practically blinding on one side of the table. While we were eating, the host was working on stamping take out bags creating an incessant background noise. Despite the great service, overall, this dinner was not the best experience. We did eat breakfast at Four Flamingos 5 of our 8 mornings at the hotel. The food was plentiful and tasty; and the service was top notch.
