Hot Tin Roof Ratings and Reviews

The Brussel sprouts lacked flavor. The swordfish was tasty, but was petite. The scallops were 3 average sized and the rosotto tasted like regular rice. The charcuterie was nice. The grilled bread was nice with garlic and manchego. It was a birthday dinner which was noted in the reservation, but nothing was done. Not even a happy birthday from the staff.
Very disappointed. I do not recommend. I will not go back.
Pati at the bar was very nice and friendly.

We absolutely LOVE Hot Tin Roof!!! This was our second time there for Sunday brunch and I don't think I would ever go back to Key West and not eat at this fabulous restaurant. The views, staff, food and service are all top notch! Our waiter, Oleg, could not have been more attentive. I have only been the for Sunday brunch, but would love to try dinner. I highly recommend this fabulous restaurant!

The food was a bit pricey, but overall, the experience was very good. Our waiter was attentive, but not hovering. We dined outside, and only wished that it was in Spring or Fall when the view could be appreciated.
Despite being a "hotel" restaurant, which I try to avoid, it managed to impress.

The steak and lamb was excellent. The service is one of the best on the island. Been here many times and will be here in the future. The cocktails are the best made in KW. The only problem this time was mashed potatoes being served cold. They replaced them with even colder potatoes. Finally I gave up.. this was very unusual for everything else is always the best.... (sometimes it happens..).

All the locals said this was their favorite and a top 3 restaurant in KW, and they were not wrong. Despite not so great weather the views and atmosphere of this restaurant were excellent. I had the Burrata salad and my husband had the kale and romaine ceaser. Both just perfect. For dinner I had the plantain crusted swordfish which was delicious and cooked perfectly. My husband had the seafood paella which he raved about. We finished our meal with the warm season fruit cobbler and it was light and a perfect ending to an excellent dinner. We will be back!

We went for a meal on our honeymoon and were seated outside, after we asked for our table to be changed. The wait staff was very accommodating and kind. The food was delicious, as well as the wine and mixed drinks. Dessert was on them because it was out honeymoon! A lovely restaurant. Definitely go there if you're in the market for a nice, quality meal.

Michael was a very good waiter. Slightly too attentive but not rudely. The ambiance was nice. The food was fresh and tasty. Yellowtail snapper was light.. 'sweet potatoes' didn't appear to be traditional sweet potatoes but they were good. Swordfish very good. Key lime pie was light and very good. A little Upscale.. comfortable.. Not a wow restaurant. But it was good.

The spicy tuna tacos were amazing, and the lobster fresh and mouth watering. However, the key lime pie was beyond words, it was not overwhelming and simply amazing. The view on the patio was astonishing and breath taking! I highly recommend this place, if you're looking for a high end resturauant.

New Year dinner. Worst food ever. 110 USD per person + drinks. Really a restaurant which tries to be at the top, but you get less than random quality food and poorly prepared. Don't eat the oysters or fillet.. The you get one burned dish and one dish which needed a lot of extra care.
The waiter was a real amateur, ansking for his advice and he relayed "look in the menue" or just pouring water all over, hanging in over people eating, no info about what was served, etc etc. Worst was that he run after us two blocks down the road arguing why he didn't got any tip. The manager was good. He gave a discount. Thanks.
Don't waste your money on any food at this place and don't expect any professional services.

We loved our New Year's dinner here. The service was incredible. We felt like we had the best seat in the house, overlooking the bay, watching the sunset, and hearing the music below. Just awesome. Cocktails, wine, food, dessert...Key West!

The ambiance was impressive and our waitress was pleasant and professional but beyond that there wasn't much to get excited about. The entrees were small, not especially flavorful, and failed to live up to their price tag.

Wow, the dining experience exceeded our expectations. The sunset view is beautiful. The ambiance romantic, but we did eat with our entire family. The food/drink were fabulous. It is a little pricey but worth every penny.

Enjoyed a wonderful Christmas brunch at HTR! Unique brunch concept, unlimited bloodies and mimosas as well as food but you order food off the ala carte menu as small plates and it is brought to you. Much more civilized way of having brunch! The ceviche and grouper chowder were especially tasty but everything was good.
The best part of brunch here is the spectacular view! Try to arrive at 11.30 when they open so you can enjoy a patio table as we did. Definitely would return. Great way to spend last day in Key West before catching afternoon flight home.

Date night. We dined outside in the deck Christmas Eve night and Elli was our server. We had an incredible experience all the way around. Food, service, drinks all exceptional and Elli was the best!!! Get the esspresso martini at dessert!!!

Best sunset view in Key West. Sitting outside was romantic, as the sun set and the water crashed against the nearby pier, and we ate by candle light (albeit a bit dark). There are ceiling fans to keep you cool. My wife and I shared the paella. It was very good. We would both recommend it. When in Key West, don't miss this one.
