We visited this restaurant after a long night out, checking the previous reviews thinking it will be an excellent choice.... We arrived and were sorted promptly and our orders where taken although my girlfriend and I both said the staff seemed to be overly nice, now I'm not joking they seemed really fake in what they said. It was a... More

I am sorry you found us "fake" and did not enjoy your experience, I do find your review confusing and unclear, I am not sure what made you sense an atmosphere of insincerity. More

The service is so good here, it gives the food a run for the money. We had a very large party and everything was 100% perfect. Could not ask for a better night out with three generations.

We had our rehearsal dinner at this lovely restaurant and I could not have been more happy with our experience. We got into town on Sunday and decided to go try it out before we had our rehearsal dinner on Tuesday. The food was great and the service (our waitress was named Mary) was absolutely amazing.

The Keys are not known for the fine restaurants, but the Old Tavernier is the exception. As serious food critics (and chef) we were quite pleased with the carpaccio and brie appetizer. Our main dish was the veal piccata, the veal was nicely sliced with a delicious lemon caper sauce. Service was very good and overall a very pleasant time.... More

We had a very special dining experience. Our server was Bree and Jess, an apprentice, assisted. The service was impeccable and the Yellowtail snapper could not have been better.

They have great soup and a good menu selection. The price is a bit high, but bring your own catch and tell the chef to pick. You won't be disappointed.

Hard to believe, sitting out on the porch overlooking the marina, that we were so close to US1. Pretty setting. Sauteed escargots were different but very tasty and a nice surprise. Martini was excellent and carafe of wine was fairly priced for a house wine. The prime rib, ordered medium rare, was served to perfection and was a very generous... More
