We went here for our anniversary since this is a higher level restaurant than most of the casual places in Key West. While the food was good and the room nice, the negatives offset the positives. The room was very noisy and the service stiff and very fast. The salads were excellent with little additions like pomegranate and almonds but... More

We stayed at the Hotel Marquesa adjoining this restarunt so dining here was a no brainer. The wine list is extensive and varies in price based on you taste. We did no have an appetizer as we were not that hungry. Our main dishes were excellent. I had the rack of lamb and it was done in a way I've... More

First time going here but will come back as it is the total package for fine dining. From the time you walk into this restaurant, you know that you are going to love the food and the wine. I was impressed from the time our waiter served our appetizers to finishing my dessert. The fish is delicious and everything complements... More

When my wife and I planned a trip to Key West during one of our Florida vacations, we reserved three nights at the Marquesa Hotel, which was rapidly building a reputation as the most elegant place to stay. At the time, we weren't aware of the hotel's restaurant, Cafe Marquesa. We thought we'd have one meal there, then find other... More

While saying at our resort nearby, our bartender recommended this place and we are glad she did. Located just a block off Duval st, the restaurant is surprisingly quiet and upscale compared to the other nearby eateries. Although the place is small on a corner, it wasn't loud at all when body by the end of our dinner. Crab stuffed... More

The menu was creative and food was well prepared. The wine list was good. The bar area is small as is the cozy restaurant. I enjoyed the Trompe l'oeil mural on the back wall.

Had another spectacular dinner at Cafe Marquesa yesterday. Always request a reservation as this place is always full. I had the wahoo with udon nood.les and it was fantastic. Fish was perfectly done as were the accompanying vegetables. Just enough spice to make it interesting. My partner had the sea scallops and loved them. We enjoyed the pina colada sorbet... More

This restaurant is not for the beer and loud music party crowd. This venue is for fine dining although it can be noisy as it gets crowded and the tables are close together. The service was excellent and the portions were generous. A man with a hearty appetite would not go home still hungry. I had the duck which was... More

Bartender and drinks were great. After that, not so. The romaine hearts were more white stalks than green fluffy leaves. The dressing was flavorful. The stuffing for the crab stuffed shrimp was pasty, with little evidence of crab, although the shrimp was tasty, but small, looked like 20 or 25 count vs. 15 count or less shrimp. Definitely not jumbo.... More
