I made a reservation a few weeks in advance to celebrate our birthdays (my husbands and mine) and invited another couple as our guests. Reservations were easily made, but word of advice, plan ahead, it's a popular restaurant. The atmosphere is fun.
The food was wonderful. Two of us order the Shrimp Fettuccini, one ordered the chicken and another ordered 4 of the tapas type plates. We also order 2 salads to split, wine, cocktails, coffee and a shared desert. The food was fresh and cooked to perfection, the proportions appropriate and our stomachs were singing with joy.

Our disappointment came with service. Our waitress was rude and at one point scolded us for asking for bread for the third time (it finally came at the end of our meal) and for asking for an American Coffee instead of just saying Coffee. I won't share with you all that she did, but it was rude and she needs a few lessons in service. We are hoping that she was just having a bad night.

We are locals and have only dined out one other time since the start of the virus and to have this attitude from our waitress was disappointing to say the least, but we did not let this ruin our night. We were there to celebrate our birthdays and to have a good time after a year of being socially distanced. We spent a good amount of money at 915 and enjoyed the food immensely. We all remained very professional and personable with our waitress throughout the meal, but we were all taken aback by her attitude throughout the night. Next time, I won't pay to have someone treat me or our guests like that, no matter how good the food is.

Food is nice, at most times fully book but you can get a seat upstairs which is nice as well if you catch the front.

Food was great. Service was good. Made a reservation online (2 months in advance through open table because we had a large party- 8 people). Reservation was cancelled via email ONE HOUR prior to our arrival by the restaurant. When we arrived they had no explanation, even when showing them the email that said the reservation was cancelled by them. I specifically made the reservation to request seating outside. The only thing they could offer us was a table upstairs. It worked, but it was not what we requested, nor did they offer anything for our inconvenience or their mistake.

I brought my wife here for her birthday. This is our first time dining here after being in the Lower Keys for 12 years. We had a memorable experience from the time we were seated until we left. Our server, Peter was a big part of why this review is being written. He is very personable, has great recommendations and is very attentive. I will definitely encourage anyone to make their dinner reservations here. The food is excellent and there are a great variety to choose from.
