Everything was wonderful except my steak came with white mashed potatoes I asked if I could substitute sweet mashed potatoes and was charged nine dollars to have them as a side. I wasn’t given more I was giving an equal substitutes little scoop w/ my steak and that was ridiculous other than that it was fabulous.

We loved our dinner at Calusa! It’s not cheap, but the server was great and made it very special for our son who was celebrating his 13th birthday. It was by far the best meal we had during our stay in the keys

Incredible experience, I didn't know existed a place like Baker's in Key Largo. Attention to details was unbelievable, even the hand sanitizer was smooth for the skin.Food delicious.

No need to eat off-property when staying at Baker‘s Cay. Calusa offers an excellent dining experience with attentive service, delicious menu choices cooked with fresh ingredients,, and a resort-casual ambience. Try to get a table on the veranda to catch the sunset. Appetizer and dinner “specials of the day” are offered nightly (ask for them) and the prices are very reasonable when considering the attentive service, food quality (nice portions, too), and ambience. Top notch and highly recommended.

Most of the food was very good. The osso buco was not a good example. Very
fatty and a bit tough. Because this dish is usually cooked for a long long, it should
have been extremely tender.

Our waitress (Tiffany) made the overall experience a joy. She helped us sort out
wine issue we were having by giving us a taste of several bottles. The one we
ultimately chose was very good.

She saved the day for us. Otherwise this review would have been only "fair."

Overall it was a very good dining experience however I was really disappointed that even though I called and advance and someone called me back to confirm, no one ever brought my husbands cake to celebrate his birthday. There is also supposed to be a champagne toast at Sunset. They gave it to every single table except ours.

I love this place and have been here numerous times and will continue to go. However even with a reservation the wait was quite a while but more disturbing was to observe staff with masks under their nose. I didn’t want them anywhere near me. Why wear a mask if it’s by your chin? It’s meant to be mandatory for employees to wear them. I hope they don’t get forced to close due to non compliance.

I hope the manager starts enforcing the rules.

If you're in Key Largo and want a nice dinner, Calusa is a good candidate. The kitchen does a very good job executing on a limited number of enticing options. The setting, being right on the water, is also very inviting. Service is professional and while not the most inexpensive place to eat in the area, it is a good value.

Terrible service, excellent food.

Took 15+ min for our waitress to show up and get us water. When she finally did, we were ready to order everything - so ordered appetizer and meals. The appetizer took over 20 min to arrive and then only one meal came out. The guy who brought the food wasn’t sure what happened to my friends meal so he went to find the waitress Virginia. She shows up 5 min later and never put in the order apparently. I was done with my meal by the time she brought my friends meal. Her attempt at resolution was giving us a free dessert - which we didn’t even want ... we were out of water for over 20 minutes also, which is all we were drinking. Inexcusable. It wasn’t even remotely busy - we were her only table. She wasn’t even apologetic about it either ...

So much for a great meal our last night in town. So disappointing.

Fantastic. Must try the blackened Grouper. It was amazing! My daughter had the surf and turf and the filet was so soft that you could cut it with the fork. My wife's Mahi was delicious too. Overall the best food we ate at our trip to the keys. As usual in the keys, even with a reservation, they make you wait for at least half an hour to be seated.
