“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2012

Food was good, large portions and a good value. Place is very busy and consequently very noisy. We had difficulty carrying on a conversation with our friends but still worth eating there

“Fantastic dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

What great place! Have been coming to Islamorada for 15 years and tonight was the first night we ate at the Old Tavernier. Robert, our server was fantastic. Had an amazing seafood pasta special and everyone else had the prime rib. Two thumbs up! Kind of a quite place, but the food was great. I will be going there again next February.

“St Valentine's Day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2012

We have dined here several times and thoroughly enjoyed. We made reservations for 4 (my husband and I and another couple) for Valentine dinner. The decor was beautiful with fresh roses on each table etc. Everything upscale. Staff wonderful. Our only disappointment was the special menu. We all looked forward to ordering something we had enjoyed in the past. However, the menu was limited and pricey. We noticed that several other parties reviewed the menu and departed as they were interested in Italian (or not prepared to pay the higher prices) We decided to stay and were not disappointed with our dinners. The food was excellent. However, had we known in advance about the limited menu, we would have chosen a different restauant for Valentine Day. One friend does not eat seafood at all which left her with the choice of a veal dish or sharing a chateubriand (at $88). While we will definitely return, it would be nice to have additional options from their regular menu on a special event night. Perhaps next year, there will be options. If not, we will return but not on Valentine's Day.
