KAIDO is Japanese-inspired cocktail lounge open in Miami’s Design District. Guests can enjoy a cozy Tokyo-style drinking den nestled in one of Miami’s most artistically driven areas, featuring innovative cocktails by in-house mixologist Nico de Soto and thoughtfully prepared Asian dishes developed by renowned chef Brad Kilgore.

Kaido features small plates, crudos, robatayaki and other dishes focusing on fresh ingredients and bright local and international flavors. Kilgore’s unique style shines in the form of sharable appetizers, such as the uni Fondue and Wagyu Katsu Sandwich, perfectly complimenting de Soto’s beautiful cocktails and large format drinks for the table, and forging a seamless and adventurous culinary marriage in the heart of the Design District.

    Lovely place and delicious food and cocktails. Our waiter was very nice and explained both the signature drinks and menu quite well. Wish we could have sat longer, but had to run and catch a show. Will definitely be back!

    I went to Kaido, when it first opened last year and loved it. I went multiple times last year, but this is my first time going back in the last 8 months. Unfortunately, Kaido lost its luster, the new cocktail menu is not great, and the food doesn't seem as good, as when they first opened. It was fairly easy to get a reservation on a Friday night, which last year, it was impossible. I should have known something was wrong, when it was easy to get a Friday reservation on the same day. The best thing about the place, was the server Andrew. He was amazing and very accommodating. I'm very disappointed about Kaido and hope they can get back to where they were last year with the food and cocktails. The ambiance is still great, but a bit sad, on the lack of quality.

    Don’t like it at all. The food was not good as I expected. Inside was loud and noisy, they sited us outside and the noise in the mall was bad too. Outside the service was bad, it took a while for the drinks to come, but then the food came fast... but it wasn’t good... sad

    It’s a small space. The service was alright considering the size of the restaurant. The food was ok, I recommend the cheese balls and eggplant maki roll, but nothing to write home about. It was pretty dark, when we mentioned this they said the chandelier was broken, but I had also heard this from other people. A bit overpriced for what it is.

    The waiter was really nice, the place is a little too dark, could have it a little bit clearer. The tables are so sticked to each other that my husband had to stand up and move his chair for another table to go threw the place. We payed $240 for the whole meal and we asked for the signature dishes, fondue and some other thing... I live in one of the culinary capitals of the world, really makes you feel dum when you pay that much for something that’s really worth $100 tops.

    The service was terrible for a resturant that was not busy. It took forever to get our food. Our server told us that our dish takes 15 minutes to prepare, it took 60 minutes. This should not happen. The resturant gave us a discount on our bill, but I didn't go there for a discount. I went there for a nice meal and good service.

    We showed up for a 9:30 reservation and didn’t get seated til 10pm, but only after the bartender left to check on our table. Our server was beyond distracted and was literally running from table to table and we had to ask for our glasses to be refilled from the bottle we purchased that was on ice around the corner. At 11:10, we still had only gotten 2/5 plates we ordered. For the price you pay at this place, everything should be perfect. We eventually approached the manager and only then did we get the rest of our food. He comped our bottle of sake which was appreciated but honestly, the dinner was pretty much ruined. Too bad because the food was actually really good. Kudos to the kitchen but front of house staff and service were not on their game.

    Very average food - significantly over priced. Classic miami hide the 15% service fee and add a tip line to the bill. No itemized bill. Calculating food items and backing out cost of drinks, 5 drinks = $100.00 which may not seem like a lot except that 3 were 1/2 pour level sake and 2 were 1.5 oz Suntory whiskey shots. Bad form folks. Have seen this Behavior before in Miami. Its the type of behavior that leads to short lived success.

    Kaido was as exceptional as I expected from the master artist, Chef Kilgore. The ambiance was insane, the amazing attention to every single detail was staggering all of which pales in comparison to the level of the actual dining. The food is beyond any level of creativity I've ever seen, as inventive and creative as Alter with a singular focus on all aspects of the mean from visual, texture and aroma. This is a dining experience that cannot be missed. There may be some other excellent restaurants in Miami but none can compare to Kaido as it relates to total dining experience.

We went with the Miami Spice with an add on of the short ribs which did not disappoint. Vibe was very cool and speakeasy lounge is a sure hit! Can’t wait to return. Thanks to Chef Kilgore who came by our table to say hello!
