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
We were on family vacation and very careful about the restaurants where we ate due to COVID-19. We were very impressed with everything Caliza did to ensure the safety of their guests and employees.
We tried many dishes, and several chef’s specialty dishes. Most dishes were “a miss.” The octopus barely tasted like octopus, hidden by noodles and sauce that detracted from the main event. The crudo was the hit of the night- fresh fish w/ a bracing and refreshing marinade. The corn soup was okay- mostly sweet and one dimensional. The snapper was dry, and the crispy skin was soggy (either cook the fish right, or hide it with a sauce). Scallops were good- hard to screw up a scallop. The duck special was pretty good. I’m just surprised and disappointed that so many dishes were poorly executed. Also, atmosphere beautiful, but you will be ester up by gnats and mosquitos, so bring bug spray
The food was mediocre in comparison to other meals we’ve had there in the past. We Octopus was drowned in sauce, lamb was mostly fat and way too spicy and again drowned in sauce. My seared tuna was not seasoned on the outside whatsoever. For high end food I’d expect it would have pepper and/sesame seeds. Food was definitely disappointing
This was our second visit and we absolutely love the ambiance and food! Our server the first time was the best one I have ever had. This time we had another waitress and she was just ok. I also have to take into consideration the fact they are trying their best to keep everyone safe and keep things moving which could contribute to the service that was just ok.
30th birthday dinner xx
Sandy, our server, was excellent! My son had the octopus, my husband had the Caesar salad and I had the Silver queen corn soup for appetizers- all were excellent. For entrees, we enjoyed the tuna, cauliflower steak and scallops were our favorites. Wonderful atomosphere!
Beautiful setting, great food and perfect ambiance, (except for the croaking frogs) lol
In our opinion the finest restaurant on the coast. The food, the service and the atmosphere were spectacular.
Servers wear masks. This takes away from the experience and they do not protect them or the guests. Fans are needed if eating outside. Gnats can be bad. Otherwise pretty nice.
We loved dining here, the food is outstanding and ambience is beautiful. Highly recommend!
The ambiance and food are both amazing. We will definitely return.
Fish was overcooked and way overpriced! Apps were just ok.
Food was good, so dark could hardly see my plate to eat.
We went to Caliza during a girls trip. Our waiter was so helpful and accommodating. The food was delicious. Restaurant was breathtaking. We will definitely be back next time we're in town!
Love this place!
Beautiful setting! Attentive service! Good food!
Lovely atmosphere, delicious food, and prompt service.
Beautiful setting. Every dish was excellent. Staff super accommodating!
Service was out of this world, Alex went above and beyond to make our experience incredible. Food was 5 star. Every dish was amazing and the atmosphere was perfect. This restaurant could thrive in any major city in America. Best restaurant on 30A
Hostesses was wonderful! We were politely greeted with a smile and enthusiasm!
Beautiful atmosphere and the whipped feta was great
We went to dinner on 6/3/20 and Cobia wasn’t fresh and shrimp were way overcooked. Service was pretty good but meal was not good at all.
We've dined and vacationed here for years and the food is always inventive, well prepared and deeply flavorful. Wonderful wine and cocktail selections and we appreciate the vegetarian option as well as the GF items like various fish preparations. The tomato and burrata salad, as well as the beet salad was wonderful. Everyone loved the Indian spiced chicken and one guest had it prepared with only vegetables- she's still raving about it.
The one area that is just stunningly poor is the staff. They are wildly unfriendly and cold, and the past 3 years have been so awful it could be a Saturday Night Live episode. The one waiter we had 2 years ago was gregarious, warm and chatty- a rare find at Caliza. He is sadly, long gone! Food can only shine so much if the staff fails to create a mood of joy.
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!
So fun! Perfect spot for a swanky girls night. Food was incredible and atmosphere is unbeatable!
Great server and amazing ambiance. Both pasta dishes were fresh and delicious.
Excellent food and service
