    What a great restaurant!! went for lunch on a Sunday had a wonderful chicken sandwich & a quinoa chicken salad, both were outstanding. Had great flavor & the portion was huge. We decided to try it for dinner Saturday and it was really worth the drive. They have a great wine list with fare pricing. Started with the calamari totally delicious then we had the filet & the prime rib, both were cooked perfectly & the quality of the meat was outstanding. Did not have room for dessert but it did look delicious. Will defiantly be back,

    Superb views of the Intracoastal. Food was average; my "Special" Sea Bass was undercooked. Pricing tends to be high for the quality of food served. The key lime pie was outstanding! Coffee was elderly, been around a while.

    Dining is about the food, the service, and the staff. Great food can mask poor service, attitudes, or personalities, however one may not wish to return due to the unpleasantries. Good thing Kazul has them all figured out to ensure the customer has a full sensory experience and ultimately keeps me coming back for more :) Thank you Kazul!

    Parking is easy, the contemporary architecture is great, inside & out. The view is wonderful, it's right on the intracoastal. The service was very responsive & very pleasant as well as helpful, from the 1st contact throughout the meal. The food was prepared perfectly & with nice sized portions. I had the Sea Bass & it was delicious, the Key Lime pie was excellent, & the Banana Bread was divine!

    This was my 2nd time to Kaluz...I think the food is outstanding (had the ribs this time, and they were amazing). Service was also stellar...had a great waiter! My one negative comment is tricky: While I understand the allure of wanting boaters to be able to pull up right outside the restaurant to enjoy the dining experience, when those same boaters leave, it's tough on you, if you are still mid-meal. Some guy left in his "muscle boat", and kept the engine running for a good 5-minutes right by the outdoor seating area. Needless to say, the smell of fumes and the sound of his obnoxious engine while the rest of us were still trying to enjoy our meal, was a turn-off, at least for the outdoor experience.

    The outside area is great for drinks before dinner. In cooler weather dinner on the water would be lovely. The wine list is nice, the service is excellent. staff is very friendly and accommodating. The food is excellent and the portions are larger than expected. My favorite is the Shrimp Cargot. Great for a date or special occasion.

    Everything was fantastic here but my friend with me noticed that the hostess at the door could have been a bit more welcoming, at least smile a bit. That's ones first impression at any restaurant. Just because the restaurant has everything else going for it doesn't mean this first impression goes unnoticed. Even the valet guys were more friendly.

    The overall dining experience was very good but I good not give it an excellent rating because the food itself was not as good as expected. My date and I both consider ourselves foodies and this would not be a place that we would recommend based on the food alone. some of the smallest dives we have visited had better tasting food than what was served that night. The staff was spectacular but the food was subpar.

    This was our first visit to Kaluz, food was fantastic as was atmosphere. Unfortunately our service by our waitress had a lot to be desired. Once seated we waited forever to place our drink order and it continued throughout the entire dinner; I had to ask for more water several times.

    Kaluz was suggested as a spot to have good seafood while I was visiting the east coast on a get away weekend. Yes, the restaurant sits on the intracoastal and has a modern decor, but the food is just basic cuisine that is not very memorable. Not something I will go out of the way to experience again. We were originally greeted at the table by a new employee who realized we had not been approached yet... when we began asking about drinks he was not able to be of assistance as he did not know the menu. When our waitress did attend to us she did so in a knowledgable and positive manner.

    Kaluz offers one of the best views around and i hadn't even seen it until a friend recommended it to me. With the panoramic windows, the outdoor bar + lounge area, which will be perfect in the cooler months -- I was thoroughly impressed. I ordered the mussels, which were a special, on my visit. While the flavor was wonderful, the mussels were tiny, but nonetheless, it was a wonderful experience and I'll be back.

    Kaluz is a total gem. We had a table right by the water, which was just beautiful, with plenty of gorgeous boats moving by. Our waiter was extremely attentive and provided wonderful suggestions for all of the food choices and wine. The food came out promptly, beautifully and delicious!! The ahi tuna on the Quinoa salad was amazing as well as the Sea Bass. My husband had the ribs (he is soooo picky) and they were a huge hit. We will be back again (this was our 2nd time)

    Kaluz was recommended by our friend from our BMW dealer. There were four of us and the food was great except for I had ordered my entree. The server seems very rough compared to other servers that we observed. Asked for sample of drink. A TINY DROP was brought where it was impossible to sample. Charge for the sample if necc.. The server took the dripping wet napkin and reused it for fresh drinks? Never in my years of dining I have seen this happened. We were all shocked. We requested fresh napkins and the server attitude became worst. We brought our experience to the Manager's attention and he really didn't care, said she was one of the best servers. Food and other staff were great.
