Diner Reviews
  • "Unbelievable food quality and service. Worth the trip from anywhere in South FL."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Great place. It was especially fun being at the dock, watching the valet parking park the yachts as they arrived on the Intracoastal. Oh, and the food was great and the service wonderful."

  • "I had a business dinner at Kaluz and we ordered a couple of appetizers (shrimp escargot and ginger calamari) which were very tasty. The waitress was helpful in choosing a wine that we all enjoyed. Our main courses were also very good and the setting is absolutely beautiful sitting along the intercoastal. We were outside which was surprising comfortable for July in Florida. All in all I would be happy to go back!"

  • "Great place to ear and watch the boats sail by. Food portions big and food great."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "The portions were exceptionally large and the prices very reasonable. We loved the outside patio dining. Our waitress was friendly and knowledgable about the food and it's preparation. There was no hurry and she made us feel welcomed and comfortable. I would reccomend this restaurant to anyone looking for quality food with large portions and great service!"

  • "Visiting from San Francisco, local friends took us for dinner Saturday night. Are outside in the side dining area on the water, adjacent to the moored boats. Apps were fantastic, highly recommend the ginger calamari and shrimpcargot, an amazing take on shrimp prepared as escargot. Our main courses were the 9 oz filet, the scallops and salmon. The beef was prefect; very good taste, cooked exactly as ordered and the scallops were to dies for; very large, sautéed to perfection. The service was perfect, sitting on the water was beautiful, as was the food. Best evening in some time. The portion sizes were double what we're accustomed to in San Francisco and the prices were slightly less, including drinks. Highly recommend."

  • "Had a reservation for 8:45. Arrived at 8:40 and was told they "overbooked" due to internet bookings and we would be seated in appx 40-45 mins. Very disorganized restaurant. Drinks were too expensive. Food OK but expensive. Portion size ridiculous. Not a great experience at all. Will not go back. Would not recommend."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Overpriced and food absolutely disappointing in every way. The restaurant is beautiful and the tables are comfortable but the food was just so average and pricey I felt totally ripped off."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Very inviting and great views of the intercoastal. I had the scallops and they were great. My friend had the pork chops and she enjoyed it. Definitely we will be back and try the other items on the menu."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "We were in town for a couple of days and decided to have brunch/lunch based on Trip Advisor ratings. The food and atmosphere were excellent as we sat outside looking over the canal and boats going by. Would like to try the place for dinner and drinks outside if we make it back to the area."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Fourth trip to Florida where I eat at Kaluz and never disappointed! Amazing food (our party of 4 ate from main menu and specials)! Also a bonus, one of few restaurants in Florida where you can eat inside and not need a sweater nor freeze! Very pleased with this restaurant!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Good food, excellent server. Love the ribs and Carmel Brownie W/ Ice Cream!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Wonderful experience on all levels. Great patio dining on the intracoastal waterway."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "The food was very flavorful. I would definitely return and recommend to my family and friends. The service was excellent. I would have liked my food a little warmer, however. I did NOT complain or comment as it was my husband's birthday and did not make a fuss. When you spend good money on an upscale plate, one at least would like the food at the correct temperature. Like I said, I would return as I am sure it was not the norm to serve cold food as the restaurant was full of customers."

  • "Perfect spot for dining al fresco. The restaurant has been renovated beautifully, the food is excellent and the service was wonderful. Make sure you have a reservation."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Flat bread was soggy ....salad had so much chicken and cheese you couldn't find the lettuce ....ribs were just ok....brownie dessert was fair. Food was brought out so fast I thought I was at mcdonalds ....server obviously wanted to turn the table....overall a very disappointing experience"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "This restaurant is a great find....especially for outdoor dining. We had a great table, and a superb waiter (Craig). He was very attentive, yet not overbearing. Will keep this as one of my favorites..."

  • "Quality establishment - Food was fresh and delicious. All prepared with great care. Would recommend."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Kaluz is one of the best up-market options for dinner and drinks in North Broward. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and has floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the canal. Dining and bar available inside and out. Food is consistently good, but menu lacks creativity and rarely changes."

  • "second time at this restaurant and as good as first time, great location recommend you book early as often booked well in advance."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "We had an excellent evening at Kaluz. We received excellent service with a friendly smile. The atmosphere on the patio overlooking the Intracoastal is perfect. The food was very good quality. We really enjoyed the ceviche, crab cake, and scallops. We will definitely be back."

  • "Waterside on the intercoastal, great place to dine"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "I have been wanting to try Kaluz for sometime based on feedback from friends but after reading some online reviews had put it off. Well what a mistake. I went for my Birthday and it was fantastic! The decor of the restaurant is super exciting and vibrant, best for a festive occasion not a quiet romantic dinner unless you dine outside where things are much quieter but still exciting. The service from the moment we valeted the car(complimentary) to the hostess, to our waiter and food delivery folks were outgoing and interested in showing us a good time and memorable meal. The scallops were to die for and the crab cake was actually 99% lump crabmeat so it was the real deal. The wine list had some favorites as well as new great selections. +5"

  • "Food is tasty, restaurant is beautiful inside and outside"
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "This restaurant has a great menu and everything is delicious. Been here quite a few times and always enjoyed it. The waitress was good and very sweet. The pork chops were delicious, the guacamole and chips great and fresh, and the iceberg lettuce wedge was big and crispy. Having made my reservation on open table and having requested a table by the window, we were all pleasantly happy that they had one waiting for us. The only negative was we told the waitress it was our anniversary. Thought since we have been here so many times they should have acknowledged it with some kind of dessert."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Kaluz is a great example of how to open and run an excellent establishment. Great location and ambiance but also very reasonable. Limited menu but something for everyone. Been a couple times and always a excellent experience."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Invited clients out to dinner. Great food and ambience and excellent service. We sat outside and only negative was once our food was served, a bunch of flies descended on us and our dinners. Next time we'll eat inside or only eat outside on a breezy night"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "With a great view on the water and a nicely decorated room, Kaluz is a great choice for dining. Menu has variety, food is tasty and fresh and service is excellent."

  • "My wife and I were thrilled with this restaurant. It was beautiful and the food was outstanding. After dinner we went outside and sat in the lounge chairs and had a drink and enjoyed the waterfront."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Outdoor ambiance is outstanding. Sat outside in June in Florida and the breeze felt like we were away in California. Had a great bottle of wine. Had a fabulous salad with crab the first time and the scallops the second. Both were wonderful. Looking forward to the third time this week. Booked in 3 times in 3 weeks."

  • "Kaluz is a new restaurant in Ft Lauderdale in a great location on the Intracoastal Waterway. Even though we live nearby we chose to dine at an outside table. The tables (with really cool chairs) are right on the dock so you can enjoy the tropical breezes and see the yachts cruising by. Service was friendly & efficient but not stuffy. All of our entrees were very good: the guacamole was the BEST that I ever had, the Thai Shrimp salad just a bit spicy, the pork chops done to perfection. A+ What impressed me the most was the attention to detail from the unique dining plates, to the patio furnishings & indoor décor - this place is extremely well designed. Not fancy, more of a zen like feel. Loved it - will definitely return."
