One of the best meals I've had anywhere. I had the specials of lobster bisque and then a scallop and shrimp dish. Both were delicious. My partner had the pork chops as he isn't as big a seafood eater as I am. The pork chops were out of this world. Not something I thought I would be saying. Blackfin also... More

We had a lovely dinner in the back courtyard of Blackfin Bistro. The waiter suggested an excellent wine after asking our taste preferences. Our two seafood entrees were prepared perfectly with interesting sauces.

Asked a local where to eat lunch. Was not disappointed. Lobster bisque was fantastic, blackened mahi sandwich very good. Family had wagyu hamburgers. Good variety of dishes. Long beer and wine list. Good service.

This is one of the best places we have eaten at anywhere. So good we went back two days later. The first night we had a wedge salad which was good. But not you can do with a wedge salad. Then we had the lobster bisque soup and it was perfect. I had the mussels with white wine sauce. Again... More

Friends and I ate here during a trip to the Keys. It was a very tasty meal. We noshed on a variety of the appetizers, salads, and desserts and all of them proved to be flavorful and made of high-quality ingredients. The service was attentive and the prices were fair. No complaints. Try it. You'll like it.

The yellow find tuna was well worth the $37. It was a big chunk of tuna too. We chose this restaurant for our one really good meal - we made a excellent choice.

We had eaten here years earlier and fell in love with the place and the food. This was no different. The seafood is OUTSTANDING and well prepared. They also have a good wine list for parings. If you only have one dinner in Key West, this would be my recommendation.

Sit out back, under the stars, and enjoy a delicious meal. Reservations should be made. All the fish dishes are excellent. The wait staff was a little harried but excellent. Pricey but worth it for an excellent meal in a nice setting. We were there a few years ago and we are glad to report that Blackfin still sets high... More

This little restaurant had nice atmosphere right on Duval Street. The service is good and the food is too. I had the tuna burger which was delicious and it is a large portion and it comes with homemade french fries.

I had the yellowfin tuna this time, which knocked my socks off...every meal and appetizer (and wine) I've had has been fantastic. The service is likewise wonderful; attentive, friendly, efficient. We didn't go for a while because we didn't see the courtyard in the back (we love to sit outside and eat in February being from the northeast), which is... More
