The staff was super friendly and helpful. They informed very well about the specials. The steak tartare was impeccable and the red grouper was presented magnificently. The chef did an outstanding job, my compliments.

The service was great. Our server was really kind with us. The food wasn’t great. But anyway, we had a really good time with a great sunset.

From the fresh fish selections we enjoyed, both fish were just a little overcooked. The seasoning also lacked a little pop you normally expect when fine dining but the side salad the fish rested upon was succulent and the presentation of the dish was very tasteful. We ordered off the specialty drinks menu both before and after dinner and we were not disappointed there. Very refreshing! Sorry to say, no room for dessert so we will have to save that for another visit.

We were a little disappointed that Latitude was booked for our weekend in KW, but we were excited to try something different for our final night on vacation. We were extremely happy we chose this restaurant. It wasn’t busy, they had amazing customer service, awesome food, and the view was absolutely priceless. We actually stayed on their patio for an extra hour after dinner to take in the view of the sunset. They have a cute little lower patio intended for having a couple extra cocktails after your meal. I would 10/10 recommend Shor American.

This was such a gem amongst the KeyWest drunk drag. The restaurant was not only beautifully situated on the waterfront, but it was spacious and not overly crowded. Our server was great and they gave us dessert to help us celebrate.

A birthday lunch at Shor is a great way to kick off one's 74th year on the planet. Fish sandwiches (fried, grilled, and blackened) delighted three of us, fish tacos and the quesadilla were met with approval by the others. The drinks were cool and refreshing, and our server Kym went out of her way to make it a special experience for us. PS--the desserts are divine!

We were looking for new fine dining experiences in KW this year, as we were kind of in a rut after many years here in the winter. Decided to try the Shor American. The outside view was nice across the water, but we couldn’t stay there because the flying bugs were awful. The staff was very helpful in accommodating us to a move inside, soon followed by most of the other outside diners. I know, they can’t control the bugs.
Beyond that both our meals were...........well, just mediocre. There are so many GREAT places to eat in KW with unusual, innovative menus, this just fell a little short.

We are foodies and the food was surprisingly good. Not Michelin quality but very good. The waiter was very good but we were not happy with two of the three hostesses, particularly since We were staying at the hotel. Beautiful outdoor seating.

A very nice experience. We liked the food, the service was prompt. We sat on the porch and had a wonderful view of the water and the boats coming in from a day out there.
I had the short ribs which were off the bone with brocolinni and mashed potatoes. My wife had snapper, which is their special. For desert we had key lime tart. They call it pie butmit was round and very good.
When you reserve ask for an outside table but watch the weather. It was a little chilly but so worth it.

We’re staying at the hotel so convenient. Bar service not good. Ordered Belvedere up, got a martini. Always a possibility but a show of service. Scallops with short rib best on menu. But still lacking seasoning. I got fish of the day, came with lame fritters that were hard and cold. The fish, while clean tasting and flaky came with a tomato and bean ramoulade, perhaps just not my liking but all the same bland. And this is supposed to be one of the best key west has to offer? Oh and waitress not very friendly either.

We are locals and wanted to go to a place we hadn’t tried in town. Soooo Went for Valentines Dinner. We walked in and our first impression was that it felt like a cafeteria. But we said the food may be good. Our server had a very dry personality; not friendly at all! The food was not awful but sure not Worth the price. Dessert tasted like it was packaged from a horsey store. Was wondering why no one I spoke to ever heard of this place. Now it makes sense. Very disappointed! Our 3rd Valentines together and we will never forget this, and not in a good way

The food was the best meal that we have had since we have been in Key West as well as the best we have had in a long time. The chef came out to all of his tables to make sure we were all enjoying our meal. For Valentines dinner they had a 3 course meal and you chose from several entrees. The red snapper with macadamia nut crust was AMAZING. We sat at a table that over looked the gulf & we saw a beautiful sunset. The live music being played nearby was the icing on the cake for atmosphere. Love love love this place.

This restaurant is amazing and the service was wonderful. The food was excellent. We dined there two days in a row, bringing our own fresh catch the second night and having the chef prepare it. The food could not have been better, the service could not have been more friendly or unplanned, and the ambience was delightful, as the restaurant was not close to busy. Terrific location, right on the water, available seating outside or inside, and the best Keylime pie ever!
We will be back, for sure!

WE went for an Anniversary dinner, I mentioned that in the booking. It was rather chilly, they brought us blankets. SO chilly that the main floor was rather quiet but the entire staff made us feel important, special and the food was just spectacular, Scallops were huger seared to perfection. My wife loved the yellowtail and my seafood curry was wonderful. We were able to pause in time for an amazing sunset view. Then we received a lovely card signed by the staff AND a complimentary awesome key lime pie! I am sure the hotel is as dedicated to their guests as Shor. Next time in KW, we will be staying there. You will be delighted by this place.

The special catch of the day was amazing. They were testing it out for making it a permanent dish on the menu and my vote is “Yes”. Make sure to save room for dessert, as the Key Lime Pie was to die for!

The service was terrible. We arrived on time for our reservation. We were given two adult menus, but no menus of any kind for our children. We sat for 30 minutes before our order was taken. The server walked up and recited the specials and immediately stated: "so, what would you like". We responded that we would like two menus for our children. The server seemed put out that we requested menus. Our food did not arrive for a full hour. Service was abrupt and disjointed. For the first hour of our meal there was a stroller parked at our table that belonged to some other party. The wait staff did not volunteer to move it out of our way. The server was not polite or helpful. After 2 1/2 hours we were left waiting to pay and, after we provided the server with our credit card, we were left waiting again for our credit card. I ultimately left with our two children -- who are older and had patiently sat throughout the meal, but were just done with the entire experience -- while my husband patiently waited to retrieve his credit card. While the view was nice and the food fine, I would not recommend this restaurant to others. I'm not sure what the problem was that night, but there are other great places to eat in Key West with equally nice views and ambience without the woefully inadequate and inattentive (and dare I say borderline rude) service.
