We arrived 30 minutes before our scheduled time. We were greeted by a very hospitable hostess. The Boat to take us to Little Palm Island runs on the hour. We were directed to a very upscale beautiful gift shop until the boat was ready to be boarded. The boat is a 1998 replica of a 1933 wooden Chris-Craft. Captain and... More

12 of us visited Key West and had "fine dining dinner" three nights in a row. We had previously had lunch here last year and thoroughly enjoyed it, even though it was very pricey. This was our third evening spending lots of $$$$. The experience is absolutely wonderful because you drive about 30 north of Key West, board their private... More

My boyfriend and I went here for dinner a few nights ago and it really was an incredible experience. The setting is beautiful. You get taken over on a really cute boat to the island, and taken to your table right on the beach. There are literally Key Deer coming to your table to steal bread (so cute!!) and the... More

We had around 10 meals here and at each and every one of them I would say to my husband, "This is the best (insert what I was eating) I've ever had. Absolutely incredible.

The setting can't be beat- positioned perfectly to capture the sunset from either dining directly on the beach or from the covered porch. The staff was amazing, and the food was really well thought out and prepared. Ate there two evenings in a row, and the menu was 70% different, and equally as creative.

To celebrate Valentine's Day, last Saturday was the 4th time we go to the brunch at Little Palm Island...is kind of a tradition for us. We love it!!! The food is delicious and the ambiance is super romantic. The scenery is perfect...a little island in the middle of a big ocean. What a gem! Can't afford to stay at the... More

I've been to this restaurant many times... it is classy, great atmosphere, live piano music, good service and usually the food was excellent... yesterday, I ordered "Maine lobster tail poached in butter", but to my disappointment, it was tough, rubbery, nearly impossible to cut (and chew); I wouldn't imply that it was a Florida lobster tail, but it certainly wasn't...

I can't say enough about this place. The food was great but the setting couldn't have been any better. The regular dining is absolutely beautiful and right on the beach. When we pulled up in the boat my (at the time) girlfriend was freaking out about how beautiful it was. PERFECT view for a sunset. To her surprise we turned... More
