We stopped today for a lunch visit. Employee's of the Hemingway house recommended Blackfin to us. My husband had the Florida pink shrimp on mashed potatoes. (Shrimp provencal) We both thought the dish was delicious, the broth good , the spinach perfect. Nothing we ate was over salted. Do think cheese grits or black rice would have been better than...

Visited because of a recommendation from our hotel. Very quiet and a bit lacking in atmosphere because of that, plus although the service was efficient, there was no warmth to it and despite the fact that there were few other people there we felt as though we were being hurried through the meal.

OK so maybe we should have branched out and tried somewhere else. But why? When it was this good, I kept coming back. We went four times in one week. Twice for lunch and twice for dinner. Two things to remember: No hard liquor, and no band or TV blaring at you. If you want that --there are dozens in... More

During our last stay in Key West (6 days), we went to Blackfin Bistro 4 times. The first time we went for a late lunch after checking into our nearby accommodations. The front desk staff had actually recommended Blackfin Bistro to us. We came back for dinner the next night, drinks at cocktail hour a few nights later and then... More

Lobster Bisque was amazing, Tuna app excellent, the Waygu Burger was extremely tasty, Gazpacho very nice with extra Prawns on top, all in all a very yummy lunch with awesome service by staff, small inside dining area but still comfy seats.
