Diner Reviews
  • "food and service were terrific, especially the service.. Definitely good place to go to.."
    Dined on 8/19/2014
  • "Love the food and view. Service not as good this time. They forgot our Guacamole appetizer. Had to ask for water, club soda and tea. Seemed like server had too much going on. Blue Crab salad was fantastic."

  • "Can't beat the view just south of Commerical bridge, on the SW corner. Out door bar and seating. We're they allow small dogs. Inside bar and tables . Look up they have Beehive chandlers very big. Menu has it all but I believe the only good thing is their Shtimp Cago, & their burgers.Setvice at tables very good Outside bar not so good"

  • "The outdoor seating area was lovely once the sun went down, and the service was more than adequate, which is was to be expected at this price point and location. Things were going well until the coconut shrimp arrived. The mango compote was delicious, the shrimp tasted of burned oil. They were practically inedible without a healthy does of mango to mask the taste. I ordered the cheeseburger for my main. Unlike the shrimp, it was executed well, perfect medium rare, but lacked inspiration. It came on a sad soggy bun with some shredded lettuce and a barely ripe tomato slice. The only saving grace was the salmon. The cedar plank salmon was outstanding. Smokey and savory. The asparagus was cooked perfectly with a nice crunch."

  • "We have been to Kaluz @ least a dozen times, lunch and dinner and we have always been satisfied. My favorite is the flat bread and in season the Mussels"

  • "Once again I have enjoyed a wonderful meal with friends who had never been here. They were very impressed with the location and the food. I knew it was a place they would enjoy. The meal portions are large and we all left with those nice bags with good food. There were 5 of us and the service was top notch. Recommendations were made for appetizers and the main course. The Sea Bass was a special, and very good. Crab cakes were ordered and were large and full of crabmeat. To finish, the Bread Pudding and Brownie were ordered. Each was excellent. It was a great meal and I look forward to returning soon."

  • "We went to Kaluz on a recommendation from two friends. We were taken to a table in their patio area. The view was of the intercoastal was spectacular. The restaurant also had very nice landscaping which included palm trees and other tropical plants. The outdoor bar looked like a great place to have drinks. We each selected a different entree... Pork chop, crab cake, Chilean sea bass, and a hamburger platter. All were delicious! They had a great selection of wines and cocktails. I enjoyed the prickly pear martini. The inside of the restaurant was extremely nice as well. There was a large bar that would be a great place to have drinks before or after dinner. Great bathrooms too. We will definitely be returning to this restaurant."

  • "Visited with business associates on 8/10/14. We were looking for a restaurant on the water, but that wasn't a tourist trap or chain restaurant. Kaluz was the perfect spot. The menu was a mix of surf and turf, but the quality of ingredients and presentation were top-notch. The outdoor dining was a little loud due to a large party behind us, so experiences may vary. Service was good, but not exceptional, likely due to it being a slow Sunday night. The prices are a little on the high side, but at a place like Kaluz, you're paying for what you don't get: the same old dinner you could get inside the same interior space at a chain eatery."

  • "If you like Houston's, you are sure to love Kaluz. Atmosphere is amazing, menu and food are great! Service is outstanding."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "This was my second visit in 2 weeks. Same delightful and satisfying experience. This time I saved room for desert! The salted caramel brownie was decadent and well worth the calories. Will I go return to Kaluz? Absolutely, without a doubt!"

  • "I took my wife there for our first year anniversary, we wanted to do something nice, but not break the bank because we have an infant at home. Dining isn't high on our priorities list, but it was our Anniversary so we wanted it to be special. Kalisz was perfect - very nice and clean , the view was great, the food was great. It turned out to be a nice night."

  • "It seemed as if our waiter may have been new, but service was excellent none-the-less. Food was, as always, delicious. Perfect view, right on the Intracoastal Waterway in Fort Lauderdale."

  • "I have been waiting to try this restaurant and finally did. I must say it was a bit disappointing. We had great seating with a spectacular view. The service and food was mediocre. I was expecting an amazing meal but did not get it (bland). The lighting was poor; could barely see the menu. I would try it again but not for dinner. Lunch outside might be better. Not writing it off just yet."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "The decor in this place is great! The food was amazing! The service was great as well! I love the fact that it is on the water so the view is nice. I had the crab cakes, they were great! I will be back!"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "We live going to Kaluz. We just discovered the outside bar and dining area and will definitely dine outside on our next visit. Ambience in/out are amazing. Menu is adequate and the dishes prepared to perfection! Huge wine selection to satisfy the most discerning palette. If you're looking for a great meal and night on the town, this is the spot!"

  • "There were six of us to help celebrate Rick's birthday this past Wednesday evening.. The restaurant was fairly busy for a weeknight.. We each chose a different entree; and every one of us was totally satisfied with our choices.. The server was attentive to our needs, though a couple times throughout our meal she did not check on us as frequently as I would have liked.. The atmosphere could not have been better.. It was the perfect choice for a nice, midweek birthday dinner.."

  • "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!"

    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."
