La Trattoria Oceanside Ratings and Reviews
We were seated in the front room which is all glass overlooking the ocean. Beautiful spot. Evan was our server and he did very well. We enjoyed the bread & olive oil table starter, antipasti platter, red grouper and scallops were amazing! Reasonable bottle of wine. Kids enjoyed the fettuccine alfredo very much. Great job Trattoria!
My girlfriend and I went here on a recommendation by a friend. We were seated at a table for two by the window looking out at the water. Very nice view. The food was well prepared and was tasty not great but very good. No bread was served which we found somewhat different (as we like oil, basil and Parmesan cheese. My girlfriend had escargot for appetizer and found it very good. Our waiter was great and on top of our service.
One of our go-to spots when we visit KW. Great view over the ocean. Food was good, service was great but we did not enjoy the conversation from the next table, too loud and too personal. Too bad restaurants can't do something about this situation. We will return next year.
My wife and I had reservations for 7:15 and were promptly seated. Our server took our drink order logged in at 7:16. We told him to give us a few minutes which he did. About 20 minutes later we ordered a salad to share and my wife ordered an appetizer and I ordered the hogfish special. The salad was delivered which we shared and by 8:40 our food had not been delivered to our table. We told the server we were leaving and he had the hostess come over to say she was sorry and removed the salad charge. We left after paying for our drinks.
To be fair we have dined there numerous times and never had this problem before.

We were visiting Key West for our wedding anniversary and the location and reviews for this restaurant indicated it would be the perfect place to celebrate. We were not disappointed. The menu had some great choices, the service was exceptional, and the food was very good. The restaurant is across the street from the Gulf of Mexico, and the large windows and seating arrangement provide wonderful views of the water. We had a reservation and were seated promptly upon arrival. Upon learning it was our anniversary the waiter surprised us with a complimentary dessert and a Sparktacular table fireworks display. Considering the location, food and service, the meal was an excellent value.
Some mix up with the servers thinking each other was taking care of our table but once we got by that and got seated in a new section the evening was perfect dining with friends we had not seen in a year. The food is excellent here. Two of us had the veal picatta that was so tender you could cu it with a fork. Most often we dine in their Old Town location when we are in Key West but dining at Oceanside was a great experience and we will return to this location again on our next visit to Key West.
It was convenient to our hotel so we tried it. The menu offered mostly pasta dishes but they did have seafood and some meats and poultry. It was good but not great.
The antipasto appetizer was a home run but would have liked to have more crustini served with it.
When we arrived I was perturbed but this restaurant was a pleasant surprise. I wanted a table on the window and didn't get it. My wife pointed out, by the way, the view from any table on the porch is great. She was right. Actually where we sat was good for people watching and a beautiful view of the water. I opened the menu and was disappointed at the limited selection. But coming from New Haven and knowing excellent Italian, the selections they had all looking like something I would eat. We ordered carpaccio and a caprese salad. Both were excellent. I had veal piccata and my wife had the hog fish special. Both were excellent. The wine list was limited. The decor needs attention. Take down the faded photos! The inside appears drab and in need of a make over but the food was spot on.
The food, atmosphere and service were excellent. It was delightful to be able to carry on a conversation comfortably. The staff were members were all efficient, polite and pleasant. Our table as ready when we arrived a few minutes before our reserved time. Even when full, the noise level was low.
We all enjoyed the food that was fresh, plentiful and well prepared.
Our favorite dinner place in Key West.
My wife and I were on vacation and wanted to revisit this venue. We had enjoyed the experience last year. This year was similarly enjoyable. We arrived as a large group did but were handled efficiently an seated promptly. Service was attentive and carrying. The food was excellent and presented well. All in all, a very pleasant experience and one that is worthy of trying.
Definitely worth recommending to others.
If I could have chosen zero stars I would have. First they didn't honor our 7:30 reservation and made us wait, then, when we were finally seated the table was extremely cramped, tiny and there was no room to even move. We were given menus but it was so dark we needed to use the flashlight app on the phone to read them. The waiter's accent was so thick we had no idea what he was saying and it took an HOUR to get our meals. Not good!!!!
There was a moderate amount of customers that night but we had to wait a while for our hors d'oeuvres and then we had to wait again for another hour for actual food to be served , which was kind of cool. We had to send back some of it to be reheated. It was very good though. But it was some of the best Italian food we had.
