Best restaurant on 30A, hands down! Beautiful scenery, love the music and ambience.

All the appetizers easily can be shared with 4 diners and have a variety of flavors: Korean, Italian, ocean, Greek, etc! Something for everyone at Caliza.

Compliments to the chef for such a creative menu - everything we’ve had has been absolutely delicious and we can’t wait to return.

Another thanks to all the Staff - so attentive without hovering and I love the team approach! Kudos!

My husband and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary and the staff made us feel very special. The food was outstanding and a foodies delight as the chef fused together a myriad of influences - American, Indian, Italian and Peruvian. The ambience is very chic and romantic. Great selection of tequilas with a very knowledgeable staff. I am also gluten free and ate very well. Finally, many precautions on dining out safely in a post Covid19 world. We recommend Caliza and look forward to coming back soon.

The atmosphere gets a 10. Very chic decor and ambiance. The table of 8 next to us with 5 screaming babies ruined that for us though. The service was extremely slow and the place was not crowded. Their menu had six entree choices. I don’t eat meat so there were three fish choices which was great. However they all had weird descriptions and the waiter didn’t know how to explain them. So we ordered appetizers instead.

We went to Caliza to celebrate our anniversary and it was really a memorable evening. Having a cocktail on the raised mezzanine at dusky is a magical experience. The service was impeccable and the ambience extraordinary. To be honest, the food was just ok. The chef seems a bit limited to Peruvian-style dishes and the menu could have used more variety and creativity, especially in terms of using local ingredients. Also, the restaurant and pool have a certain Middle Eastern vibe and the ceviche and excessive amounts of cilantro seemed a bit incongruous. The food wasn’t bad; it just wasn’t on par with the other aspects of the experience.
We will certainly be back.

Love love my dining experience per usual at Caliza but I do wish they had a better cooling system for the warmer Summer days/ nights. It can get very uncomfortable dining on dishes that are a bit heartier (yet delicious) than some.

My wife and I have wanted to try Caliza for a while. This was a quick weekend trip without the kids. The restaurant atmosphere was great. The food was bland. We were glad we tried but doubt we’d ever go back. Nothing from appetizer through dessert was memorable except the food was bland. My steak was over cooked, potatoes and cauliflower were grossly under seasoned. It was a shame. Food could have been much better to match the atmosphere.

My husband and I absolutely LOVED this place. We enjoyed our visit so much, we made reservations on our way out for another night that week so we could sample the rest of the menu. The food was fresh and tasted phenomenal. The drinks were unique, refreshing, and delicious. The service was outstanding. The setting is gorgeous. Restaurant was quiet enough that we could easily talk to one another, but with enough background noise that we weren't worried about disrupting others. The only thing to keep in mind is that the restaurant is completely outdoors and to dress appropriately for the weather.

I was looking for a great meal & was attracted to the outdoor seating. This meal was not worth $300 for two adults & two kids. There was plenty of seating & yet we were shoved in a corner with no views but a wall & with a cluster of other tables but everything else was open? Pretty area but I would recommend going elsewhere. My daughter had the mushroom ragout which was ok.. too much citrus. My husband & I had the beef tenderloin. Again, it was just ok.. very bland. We love a good meal & don’t mind the expense if it’s worth it.. this was not.

The entrees were good. Avoid the chorizo toast, entirely too heavy. My biggest complaint was that there was ZERO airflow at the table and the temperature was close to 90 degrees which made me very uncomfortable. I really just wanted the meal to end so that I could leave and cool off.
