Ate here several times during our stay. Would have loved it if the pina colada machine was working, but each time we came it never was. I was never able to get one here. Service was good and so was the food.

The key west pinks were the best part. Our service was fantastic! We had the Toes in the Sand Beach front experience. We were celebrating our 42nd anniversary and it was perfect.

July 4th fireworks lead us to this destination! Food, music, drinks were decent. Descriptions lead me to believe this was a place that required “dressier” attire….absolutely not the case. I felt overdressed in a simple linen dress. My husband could have worn a nice tshirt with his shorts…his polo was nicer than most. The space was pleasant, and our goal was being able to watch the July 4th fireworks, which were phenomenal! I probably wouldn’t eat here if I wasn’t staying at the resort. No complaints but it was a little overpriced for bbq food. Service was fine. It would definitely be a go to place if we were staying at this hotel. However, we weren’t hotel guests, so the other options in town are more desirable if you’re looking for dinner.

Last day on Key West and we decided on the outdoor dinning venue at the Casa Marina. Hands down most likely the best overall setting on the island with ocean, beach views, beautiful sunsets, spectacular! There is nothing overly fancy about the patio area, however the food was excellent and so was our waiter “Goose”. Started with the Key West Pinks Shrimp and these were substantially large shrimp with some nice bitey cocktail sauce, yum! Their charred Brussels sprouts are perfection. We had the braised short ribs and ribeye steak. Both dishes were delicious. This was just an overall perfect evening and the experience we wanted. Service was just great! Thank you!!

Weather and our server made this a wonderful final evening. Cost can’t be ignored and set gratuity is a bummer for great servers, who should benefit for their ability. I don’t believe that I would suggest this meal for some one not staying at the hotel—a poolside menu is good and a fraction of the cost

We had the catch of the day, mahi mahi. It came with just the fish and a bit of salad on top and we shared the keywest pinks and had key lime pie for dessert. No drinks, just water and our bill for 2 people with tip was almost $170. The service was excellent and food was great. The view of the ocean is amazing. We will be venturing off property for the rest of our meals. I Would recommend if you really don’t want to leave the resort but otherwise you can find good food elsewhere.

The food was great but the server was terrible. She brought the wrong drink, never put in our appetizer and then food came out. Overall the food was amazing and couldn’t beat the location on the water at sunset but it would have been nice if anyone came to check on us because she never did. My husband loved his steak and the shrimp app was as fresh as it gets! Probably won’t go back though because of the service.

We had a group of loud, drunk people about ten feet from our dinner which was a little annoying the whole time. I know it is a resort but I think I had something different planned in my head. With that being said, it was generally good... just not what I expected from private dining and a 400 dollar dinner. The service, however, was great, the food was good-enough, (the mussels were our favorite thing) and the experience was one for the books.

This was billed as a private dinner on the beach with a four-course meal. It was actually a selection of options off the regular restaurant menu with an exorbitant surchage for being on the beach. To top it off, we got the table right next to the pier where everyone from the hotel NOT paying for this meal could stop, have conversations, take pictures, and listen to phone calls on their speaker phones while we were trying to celebrate our anniversary. This was absolutely not worth the money.

OMG, we could not even get them to take away our stacked plates when we ate at SunSun for Easter Brunch. Getting the check was another ordeal, followed by getting our credit cards back. This was buffet! How hard could it be? Food largely pretty good.

Our server, Danny, was top notch! He was very attentive, personable and made the experience extra special. He took a lot of photos for us and spent some time talking to us about sights and things to do. The food was very delicious and we really enjoyed the beach. Wish it could have been a little more secluded from the hotel guests but it wasn't too bad

We dined on the sand right in front of the water and had a gorgeous view of the Sunset. Our server, Nesty was outstanding. For the price we paid we were very disappointed in the main course. Mahi mahi and Ribeye.
For a place like the Waldorf Astoria the food should have been top notch.

Beautiful expansive outdoor restaurant beside their private beach. Menu is limited but the food is good. Our $18 glasses of wine (9oz) were served in plastic disposable cups. Our server said the bar was running low on glassware.
We got a table close to the musician as requested. It is definitely worth checking out.

“Toes in the sand“
The food was mediocre. The appetizers and the Keylime pie were excellent. The steak tasted like it was quickly thawed and immediately cooked. Five of us ordered the same dish and three of us did not get any lobster and it was part of the meal .The beach right next to us was still open so there were kids running between our tables. After the sunsets, you could not see the food you were eating. After having spent $1100. Expectations should be higher from the resort.

This is a great experience for a special occasion. Can’t beat the ambiance when you’re literally at the water’s edge for sunset. The staff was not dedicated to serving the beachfront experience though and the food was brought by very inexperienced people (I had to walk up myself to ask for dessert spoons). Great experience for those that are wanting that romantic time or other special time. Wish the management had better focus to provide the exceptional service that comes with the hotel name and location
