    La Trattoria Oceanside has historically been one of our top favorite places to dine in Key West for intimate occasions and with friends/groups. We looked forward to dining on Friday evening before heading to the symphony. We arrived for our 5:15pm reservation and were seated at one of our favorite tables - and the restaurant was very vacant - to be expected for the time. Our wait was friendly but seemed very distracted. Questions were answered with a lot of uhm's and hmmmmm's. He definitely worked to sell an appetizer & salad as we placed our order, and dessert at the end. Other than to take our order, one check when we called him over for more water and to talk about a dessert and immediately deliver the tab and pick it up, we never saw him. We had other staff deliver bread and take away our completed plates - no eye contact and little discussion other than, "are you done with this plate?" Disappointing. We always look forward to visiting with the wait, which is one aspect that we really enjoy. My husband ordered the yellowtail snapper. I ordered the chicken picatta. The grilled potatoes on both plates were very burned/charred on the bottoms, so only a portion of the potatoes were edible. We both agree, our experience fell short and we left a little disappointed. Now, restaurants have bad days, too. We will try again and hope for an experience like those from last "high season."

    Arrived at our designated reservation at 7 p.m. We were seated immediately. The waiter, Sebastian came with water request and drink orders. We orders a bottle of Pellegrino and 2 dirty Martini's one with blue cheese olives and one with regular Olives. Our waiter brought us the Pellegrino and said we may want to go ahead and order as the bar was backed up. We shared an order of Escargot with mushroom cream sauce (very rich and we left over half of it) and I ordered the Hog Fish special and my wife got Angel Hair with Marinara and basil. The Escargot arrived but still no drinks. Literally, 40 minutes after we arrived we saw our waiter go running pass our table with two Martini glasses. We were informed the bar had just run out of Martini glasses and our waiter had two run two out from the dish washer. 50 minutes from arrival we received our drinks both of which were sporting the blue cheese olives. Our waiter corrected the olives and our meals arrived and were good. We asked for our check and sat their another 10 plus minutes to get our bill (which proudly included $36.00 for our 2 Martini's). Sebastian was apologetic about the it all and offered to forgo his tip. We would never do that. We paid and left and will not be back. My observation is there was no one of managerial authority in the front of the house. We finally got out at 9:10 and never saw anyone the entire 2 plus hour's but wait staff, the bartender and two young hostess's who spent most of their time bump dancing at the front desk. Sorry, we never complain but this one needs to know.

    This restaurant has a good ambiance. It is away from downtown key west so we liked that it was a bit quieter. They have two locations and we tried the other location in the past and preferred this one by far. We ordered a salad to start and both got pasta dishes, spaghetti Norma and penne arrabbiata. Both were delicious! Service was exceptional. Would definitely return.

    Our waitress was friendly and professional however she did mix up our order. She gave us a complimentary glass of wine as compensation for the extended wait for the correct dishes we had ordered. The food was quite good but I was surprised at the wait from the kitchen on the mixed up order. We had a nice time and went away satisfied.

    As usual the meal and service was outstanding…. We were there on Valentines Day…..so accommodating for my Dad ….. who is in a wheelchair. Just like eating in your own dinning room. They were very busy…. But they never make you feel rushed…..The steak was cooked to perfection! My Dad had the hogfish special…..he’s 90 years old and ate every bite! Our favorite place in Key West! Thank you for another wonderful evening!

    Given its reputation, we expected quality Italian food. The spaghetti bolognese had no flavor. The lasagna only had flavor because of the red pepper flakes. The beautiful view and excellent service kept the evening from being a total loss but we won’t eat here again.

    We had another great meal. The food is so consistently delicious and they make a very good drink. All the staff are great too. You really feel at home. Only drawback was the noise level for a while until the loud people left! And for what you get the prices are reasonable for a great meal.
