We visit key west several times a year and love to stop here for lunch. The food is always fresh and good and the service is efficient and friendly. This is an upscale stop on the southern end of Duval. Definitely worth a visit.

Our first visit here was on the recommendation of a local a few years ago and we it was one of the best meals we had while in Key West. We have been back a few times over the last year and have not been disappointed. We keep going back because the yellowfin tuna is the best we have ever... More

Black Fin restaurant was our biggest disappointment on our trip. We love sea food, especially fish. A nice local guy recommended us this restaurant when we asked for good sea food. Restaurant itself is pleasant and raise the expectations for the quality of the food. Instead, the waiter was a little too pushy when marketing day menu and that already... More

What a beautiful property. This restaurant has both indoor and outdoor courtyard seating. A promising sign was a happy diner giving a big enthusiastic thumbs up on his pasta selection from the outside window. The wait staff was extremely polite and I was lucky to get a table in the courtyard before it filled up. With Pink Martini-esque style music... More

This was our second visit to the bistro. We dined here for a delightful brunch, starting off with the 2 for 1 mimosas. Service, ambience and food were very good. We enjoyed the lobster bisque, eggs Benedict, quiche, burger and fresh catch. All received a 'thumbs up'. This will remain on our repeat list!

Wonderful service and the food was even better. Definitely recommend this restaurant. My husband said it was the best tuna he had ever had! Our waiter, Diago, and the owner, Joey, were great!!

Enjoyed a great lunch here with some nice drinks in a very nice setting and felt very relaxed until we'd finished and the only way to get the bill was to start clearing the table ourself.

Just had a nice dinner here. The food was really good so was the ambiance. Prices were ok as well. In terms of the the service, the entrees came while we were having our soup and salad, so it kind of rushed things up...the waiter mixed our sparkling water with tap water and somehow we wound up drinking our bottle...
