we are locals and have been to Caliza before. I enjoyed my other visits but I have never felt like it was anything more than ok food and a beautiful setting..... until now. everything was perfect.. crab cake wrap, salad, and scallops were perfect. This was a phenomenal experience. WOW
Had the best time and amazing food. Our server was outstanding. Even the hostess was awesome.
Best on 30A!
Adam and his entire team provided outstanding service, in an elegant beach atmosphere, with the most deliciously exquisite food south of Atlanta.
Amazing setting and wait staff was very knowledgable and excited to service us. The food was delicious!!
Beautiful! We felt like we were in a different country. The food and service was outstanding.
By far the greatest atmosphere. From walking up to it, to the Covid precautions they have, to the food. You won’t be disappointed. The nicest staff at the beach is working there. The food no matter what you pick is incredible. Great portions, and the flavor I will dream about until we come back next year. So glad we had this restaurant recommended to us!
Strictly outdoor dining around a beautiful swimming pool. Food and service cannot be beat along 30A or most any other place.
Unfortunately our experience was a disappointment.. I was so excited about this date. We made the reservation a month in advance since it stays so booked. The ambiance was beautiful.. our server, Khonger was wonderful. The Grilled Octopus and the Frisée salad were delicious. I had the Bee Sting martini and loved it. John and I both decided to get the Grilled Beef Tenderloin.. mine Medium and his Medium Rare as Always. Our server went over what that means and we all agreed. When they came out we both cut into each of our steaks to make sure it's done properly, as is customary in fine dining establishments. Mine was grayish brown, his was light pink. We shined our phone lights on them to get a better look and our server quickly picked them up as he too saw that they were both over done. He was very polite about it. Not a big deal.. it happens. We carried on with our conversation enjoying our drinks and the atmosphere. A little while later a young man came up to our table and introduced himself as the general manager, Gray was his name. He said, "I don't mean to be confrontational here, but this steak IS cooked properly.. maybe you just can't see." I wasn't sure which of us he was even addressing. So I asked him. He didn't know whose steak it was. We politely told him that the steaks that we were served were both over done. We were both stunned that he been so rude and arrogant. I am surprised that such a fine establishment has a manager that has no couth. He acted as though we bruised his ego by simply wanting our food prepared properly. I shared with Gray that he really might want to try a different approach in the future. I really wanted to Love this place and have an amazing evening. When I choose to spend $300 on dinner, I expect better manners than this, so disrespectful.
Everything was fantastic. We loved it!
Always great! Creative menu, wonderful ingredients, and always a little twist that makes each dish superb!
While the overall ambiance of the restaurant in Alys Beach is simply stunning, and the service was good, the food felt overpriced compared to other exceptional restaurants in the area. Nothing we ordered (from appetizers through dessert) was exceptional.
Such a fantastic meal. Loved every bit of it.
One of my favorite restaurants!!! So sad to hear it is closing for good at the end of the year.
This restaurant is all outdoor and absolutely gorgeous! The food, service and atmosphere made our meal a memorable one!
As always, food and service was exceptional!
Exceptional dining experience in a beautiful setting- wine list very reasonable. We started with an octopus appetizer and delicately flavored hummus as appetizers. The skin snapper and scallops are excellent choices for entrees. The chocolate mousse had an interesting touch of sea salt. Caliza’s bread pudding wasn’t the best ever but certainly had a fabulous whiskey sauce! Service impeccable and all staff considerately wore masks during the pandemic. Make this your special 30-A go to place!
This was part of our anniversary celebration and the food was exquisite! The service was fantastic. The setting was unmatched. Heading to 30A? This elegant restaurant is a must!
Beautiful atmosphere. And amazing food. It’s a wonderful place to go for a romantic fun evening.
Perfect setting for our anniversary dinner! Felt very private and chic and food was excellent. Highly recommend for date night.
Caliza was absolutely amazing! Best restaurant we dined at during our Seaside stay. The food was impeccable. Best pork chop I’ve ever had and the scallops and snapper were delicious. Service was also great. Our waitress was very informative and knowledgeable of the items on the menu. She did advise that the chef changes the menu often, so will love to go back again in the future. It’s also a in a beautiful location in Alys Beach, can’t go wrong!
Beautiful location at Caliza Pool. The food and service was great, but it was So very hot. I would recommend spring or fall when the weather is cooler The worst part was the crazy loud noise of the frogs, you could hardly talk above the noise.
Caliza is one on the most unique gems of a restaurant you will ever eat at. The whole experience is like no other. Beautiful atmosphere, exceptional dishes/drinks and the staff is so respectful and consistent. Thanks Caliza!!
Young man up front handled a situation very aggressively and poorly! Will not go back
Beautiful setting and ambiance. Our meal was terrific!
Great experience. Beautiful setting. Food was very good, although pricey. Wine list was good and surprisingly affordable. Caliza is a great restaurant for a romantic dinner!
Such a treat! One of a kind experience while on vacation. Service was amazing as was the food. Beautiful setting right out of a magazine.
Sensational seafood in a beautiful setting.
We went there right after I proposed, it was an excellent night out. Drinks weren’t too expensive when you consider the ambiance and location of the restaurant. Beautiful grounds, it feels like you stepped into another world
The setting for Caliza is nearly unrivaled in the States. An exceptionally well thought out Monaco style pool with the outdoor restaurant of Caliza. Food is thoughtfully prepared and service is fantastic. We always enjoy dining here
Found Caliza when looking for outdoor dining options that took reservations on 30-A, and so glad we did. The ambiance is lovely and the food was outstanding, will definitely be back.
I had a wonderful experience at Caliza. The food was delicious and the service was exceptional. I look forward to visiting again soon.
Perfect evening with excellent food, service, & ambiance. Had the seared tuna & hubby had the scallops & risotto- both were out of this world. We can’t wait to go back!
While the menu sounds great, the food is only okay, especially considering the cost. The atmosphere at some tables is great, but if you’re stuck in one of the booths that’s carved into a side wall, with no air circulation - as we were - it’s decidedly less enjoyable. And if you asked to be moved to another table, they’ll tell you no even though the restaurant is half empty and none of the other tables were filled. Our sever was very nice and attentive, but overall, I would not go back and would not recommend to others.
Setting at Caliza is very nice around the pool at Alys Beach. Tables were well spaced and all staff was masked. Bugs became a serious problem at dusk. Food was superb. Service was attentive and professional. Prices were high- even for thirty a so not a value meal but great for a special night out.
Warning. If you will be dining at sunset. Make sure you are underneath where the fans are. Biting flies came out and ruined our meal. We were seated by the pool and when we asked for fan we were told that they only had one that they brought out for someone else. He said this happened each evening. If you are paying $500 for a meal, you would think they would have made some accommodations for these critters.
Great service and ambience! Will be going back!
We celebrated my husband’s birthday at Caliza, and wow! We have not stopped raving about this gem. Everything was exquisite. You cannot beat the atmosphere or aesthetics, we had the best service he was such a pleasure to be with throughout the night, and the food was a work of art! This will be our new go to when we are in town! Thank you for such a wonderful time!
Best atmosphere and food out there in Alys beach! Can’t wait to be back
