“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013

Gave this cruise a chance based on other reviews and was beyond happy with the choice! We went this past Friday and it was just 8 of us. Appetizer, meal and dessert were all delicious!!! For the price it cannot be beat! Where else in Key West can you get a 3 course gourmet meal with unending drinks and a beautiful sunset cruise for $85 per person.
The best part was meeting chef Brian and his wife Nancy. Truly wonderful, warm, genuine and friendly people. The Captain was also very nice. Everyone should meet people like this in their lifetime.
My friends and I had an unforgettable evening!!

“Best Peaceful Sunset Cruise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2013

I loved the Sunset Culinaire Dinner Cruise (5555 College Road, Key West) because it is small. It only takes about 20 people. The food is fantastic which is served by Chef Brian Kirkpatrick. Mrs. Kirkpatrick is a fantastic host along with the Captain. They mingle and talk to all the guests. It is a peaceful enjoyable cruise.

“Accommodating to our many needs...made our wedding day perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2013

I had contacted Brian many months in advance of our trip to reserve the dinner cruise for our group that was going to key west for our wedding. Brian was patient and friendly in answering my many questions as the paranoid bride who wanted to assure everything would be perfect. He was more than willing to accommodate to special requests. (I read a negative post about adding on gratuity, and that is true, however I feel added gratuity is pretty common now and you can choose not to give additional gratuity after the cruise, so this was not a big deal IMO). The day of our wedding and dinner cruise couldn't have gone better. Nancy was excellent, the captain was friendly and entertaining, and the food was incredible, right down to the last bite. Our guests were treated very well and raved about what a great time they had on the dinner cruise! We will not ever visit key west without booking them again!!

“Atmosphere, food and company was wonderful.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2013 via mobile

The diner sunset cruise was amazing. Ian still shocked at how totally fab the food was coming out of such a tiny kitchen. Bryan and Nancy were such a pleasure to be around and Barry the captain was very entertaining. Would HIGHLY recommend people to go. We will absolutely go back. Till next time.

“Incredible Food & Nice Sunset”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2013 via mobile

This is our second trip with Sunset Culinaire and it was even better this time. We had a small group of 8 guests which made the service quite personal. Chef Brian is incredible, everything was excellent. Nancy kept us with drink in hand so we could relax and enjoy the sunset. I recommend you try this dinner cruise, as the food is as good (likely better) as any restaurant in town, and you get the added benefit of being personally served as part of a small group, and enjoy the ocean and sunset.
