    Everything was good - I will return. I ordered the filet which was good to perfection and my dining partner got the scallops. Our Server was attentive and knowledgable about her menu.

    Love the calamari. The ahi tuna burger was delicious. The lamb burger was also delicious. Both of us even saved room for dessert. The bread pudding was great hot and cold sauce. We ate every bite. To top our night off... We sat by the window watching the boats go by... Truly a lovely experience.

    I grew up in Ft. Lauderdale in the 50s-early 80s and returned recently to place an uncle into assisted living. To celebrate the busiest two weeks of my life, I thought I would celebrate with a nice dinner at Kaluz on my last evening in town. What a great dining experience! Fabulous wine list and menu. I grew up on seafood and I have to say that the coconut shrimp appetizer was absolutely the best I've ever had. I eat lots of salmon, and the cedar plank salmon entrée simply goes to the top of the list in my book. Excellent views of the intercoastal waterway and attentive service as well. Can't wait to bring my wife with me on the next trip to Ft. Lauderdale.

    Service could have been a little more prompt and attentive. Sat on patio and it was perfect. All of the food that our party of 4 ordered was prepared properly, served hot and fresh and tasted great! Just wish they would accept outdoor dining reservations. Even with Open Table reservation, if you want to sit outdoors, you have to start with a different hostess after checking in and wait for outdoor table. Why can't the outdoor tables be reserved like the indoor tables??

    we wanted a memorable dinner for our out-of-town friends and Kaluz is perfect. located right on the intercoastal and with almost all glass walls, it is a beautiful place to have dinner and watch the boats go by. the service is always fantastic and the food is terrific. we are soon to be moving back to our home state of LA (where all of the food is fantastic) but we will surely miss this place. you can rest assured that we will come back here whenever we are in Fort Lauderdale again. :)

    We had a party of 4 1/2(6 mo. old grandaughter). We ALL had a great time. There was enough room so that families were seated where other patrons were not bothered and all could enjoy the wonderful food, service and ambiance. The servers are the nicest of any restaurant we have ever been to and we have traveled all over the world!!! We highly recommend Kaluz!

    This was my fifth visit at Kaluz but it was not a pleasant experience. The food did not come out in time. One plate was hot the other was cold. The meat was under-cooked, the cheese on their signature burger was not melted and the service was substandard. It may be sometime until I go back to this facility

    Kaluz is our very favorite new restaurant in the Fort Lauderdale area. We have always had a positive experience in every way and often recommend it to friends. Whether you want to hang out with a fabulous glass of wine or cocktail at the comfy bar lounge, or dine in style with the always interesting and delicious menu and specials, the view is the same. SPECTACULAR!!!!

    Kaluz is one our favorite restaurants. We take all of our our of town friends as well as hold business dinners there. While great food and atmosphere the service can be lacking and somewhat inattentive. The last meal we had we ordered glasses of wine when dinner was served however, the wine did not make it to the table until after the meal was finished. Our waitress had no idea the incident occurred and we let it go because we were annoyed and trying to salvage the evening. Typically, we order after dinner drinks etc and enjoy the patio. However, this recent visit we cut it short to a cup of coffee and then left feeling cheated annoyed and disappointed.

    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,

    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!
