We visited the Roof Top Café for dinner based on a recommendation from a local friend. We were very impressed! The bar menu was fantastic. Very creative drinks with quality spirits and generous portions. Our appetizer and dinner entrees were incredible. Hands down, the fig sauce on the duck breast entrée was one of the best I've ever tasted. The... More

Mahi mahi was delicious!! Pork spring rolls were great, too. Location was good. Tomato bisque a bit greasy. Overall, very good experience.

We had our wedding rehearsal dinner at the Roof Top. It's a beautiful restaurant with very welcoming, attentive staff. Though it's fine dining, we felt the prices were good and were surprised at the total cost when presented the bill -- Not too bad!! Overall, most of our guests felt their food was good, not exceptional. This did not apply... More

My wife and I were on a day-trip to Key West and after a morning of walking and touring looked for a place for lunch. My wife has a gluten intolerance which drastically narrow downs our restaurant options. We looked over the menu and saw GF besides some of the menu items and went in. We were seated outside in...

This is a place I highly recommend to foodies. The food is spectacular and they have a good wine list. Our waitress was great with promptly taking our order, bringing food, and refilling beverages. We sat on the side porch looking down at the streets below. The breeze was amazing...like air conditioning. Key to getting a good seat is going... More

Kevin, the General Manager greeted and sat us at a table of our preference along with explaining the menu. Jill, our waitress could not have been more pleasant and accommodating.

Chef Brendon blew us away with a stunning foie gras appetizer, followed with his delectable lobster gnocchi.... entrees included steak perfectly grilled and perfectly seared duck breast. We... More

Lunch was fun sitting upstairs on the porch. We could people watch while enjoying a cold drink and a delicious lunch. Service was attentive. My mahi mahi was a fish sandwich, but I had it served without the roll on a bed of lettuce. My husbands sandwich had pork and ham and cheese. Very good and very filling. I recommend... More
