A local citizen told us to go to Blackfin If we wanted burger. We startet with a cold beer and ordered Lobster soup and Escargot as our starters. Nice and tasty. They had many burgers in the menu, but we choose the "8 oz. Wagyu Burger" (American Style Kobe Beef) at $22 with port wine mayonnaise, shallot marmalade, smoked gouda... More

Right in the middle of Duval, we stumbled into this place looking for lunch. They have a nice courtyard tucked away, and it was so quiet and pleasant. We each had one of their signature sandwiches which were both excellent. They have a nice wine list with several by the glass. We checked out their breakfast menu and planned to... More

We made reservations by phone for a Wednesday evening at 7:00 and requested that we sit outside on their terrace (very nice, I'd recommend it). We were seated promptly. All of the waitstaff had an accent which I could place and weren't certain how experienced they were (I had an empty beer prominently placed at the end of the table... More

My wife and I enjoyed dinner at Blackfin this week. We had great advice from our server on drinks, and both chose the Grouper special, which was superb. Of course we had to follow that with their own Key Lime tart, to share, but it was the best Key Lime anything we had all week in Key West. The courtyard... More

We wanted a quieter place to have a nice early lunch and found the Black Fin Bistro. Food was amazing. Started out with mimosas and finally decided on lobster and asparagus omelette and a Cuban frittata. My husband also had to try the lobster bisque which he said was outstanding. On Duval but away from the tourists. A must try.

We had a very attentive server who was extremely helpful with us and our 1 year old daughter. The food was good. I didn't love the Tuna tar tar but everything else was great.
