When we arrived at 6:15 p.m., the restaurant was empty. We asked the hostess if we could sit at a table directly overlooking the harbor. She said, "No, those tables are for four people." There were only two of us, so she seated us on the side of the restaurant. About 10 minutes after we arrived, she seated a party... More

This is an excellent restaurant with great food. We felt it was a bit overpriced for the quality available elsewhere but still nothing wrong with the food. We got there early, 5:30 reservation - when they opened and we got the impression we were an annoyance. Just did not connect with our server. He seemed to want to be somewhere... More

Was given a recommendation to try Commodore as an amazing restaurant and unfortunately it missed the mark. The restaurant is a little hard to find but as long as you follow the signs you will end up in the right location. There is seating that overlooks the harbor but if you are looking for dinner and a sunset this is... More

We needed something relaxing and a quick bite to eat so we popped into this place. We sat down at the bar and had a few appetizers. It was one of those lunches where you just sit and watch the bartender, the people waking by outside and soaking up the breeze from the dock a few feet away. The food... More

We were with friends that had been to this restaurant before. The best part was that we had our own outside dining area on a private balcony overlooking the harbour. What a lovely place to be with friends. The food was outstanding!! Fine dining at its best

There are, to my mind, two really fine restaurants at the end of Key West’s Front Street. One will make its presence known for blocks. Finding the other is something of a treasure hunt. Lucky you. The Commodore is every bit as good as its more celebrated neighbor. Possibly even a little less spendy. Keep things simple with the marvelous... More

This is on the 2nd level and you have to go through another restaurant to get to it but it's worth it! One of the best steaks I've had, really great sourdough bread, drinks! Highly Recommended! Great Service!

In our first first visit to Key West last week, we explored the old city and its waterfront. There are many dining options and we randomly wandered into the Commodore... one of many choices on the waterfront. We were seated at a great table overlooking the docks and boats. The food and service were excellent-- especially the Appalachiacola oysters from... More
