My wife went on a date to celebrate a new step in our lives. Service was great! Food was excellent! Steaks cooked perfectly, moist and delicious. And seating right on the channel. It does have a high end price mark, but is well worth it!

Hadn't been to Kaluz for a while. Had a wonderful experience. All staff was friendly and helpful and our waiter, Ryan, was the best ever. Food delicious, which was why we wanted to go back, and didn't disappoint.

There were 4 if us. The ladies had the chopped salad and declared it very good. Their mains were yellow tail special $37 and a bowl of mussels, respectively . The yellow tail was mediocre and the mussels reeked. By reeked I mean smelled like horse manure. They were rejected and replaced with rib roast and mashed potatoes. They were described as excellent.
The gentlemen ordered a chicken, mushroom and corn chowder and tomato and mozzarella salad, respectively. The chowder looked very good, although the question “where’s the chicken” was asked by the diner. His pork chops and mashed potato main was generous and very good. More than he could finish. The other main was a 6 or 8 oz. crab cake $35. Half of it was bread or other filler. Very disappointing offering and the remoulade sauce was not New Orleans quality either. That dish is undeserving of the name crab cake.
Two desserts, key lime pie and salted caramel brownie with vanilla ice cream were very good. There were no alcoholic beverages and only a sprite and the before tax and tip cost (which included the more expensive rib roast main) was $185. The server was superior, location in a booth facing the water was reasonably quiet. First time we were not totally satisfied with the food and it’s preparation.

The light over our table was out. It made eating difficult once the sun went down. My client's steak wasn't cooked correctly. Service was excellent.

A friend recommended Kaluz so we decided to go for our anniversary. I knew it was on the water and we wanted a place with a view. Our waitress was wonderful and made excellent suggestions. Dinner was delicious and we had a gorgeous view. We’ll definitely be returning!

Our second visit to Kaluz, this time to celebrate my wifes birthday. We reserved on open table and our view request was honored. Family of five and we shared two steaks, the NY and the Rib Eye, both were prepared perfectly, very tender, delicious as we expected. Service was excellent as well. Had a great bottle of Red Zin I had not tried before. Our server helped with that selection.

We had some condensation dripping on our seat from the AC vent above and the manager came by, offered to move us but we stayed, and she comped us with an appetizer on the house, which was very nice of her. It was a very humid day so understood the problem.

Be sure and hear what the daily specials are. They have a fantastic grilled artichoke appetizer that isn't on the menu.

Our server,Chris was great. He made my friend’s bday celebration memorable.
I food was excellent. The tuna tartar was very fresh and tender.
If I could mention one thing to change , it would be the shrimp with the yellowtail was way too salty and had a LOT paprika on it for my taste.

I live in Virginia but I have family in Fort Lauderdale. Whenever I visit I have to go to Kaluz. It is my absolute favorite restaurant anywhere. I love the Tuna Tartare as appetizer and I love the scallops for entree. Actually I love everything I have ever had there. Oh my and let’s not forget the bread pudding with vanilla bean ice cream. Everything is perfect with and at Kaluz.

Odd music for an upscale restaurant. They had 80s rock and some interesting choices. Food was good but steak wasn’t anywhere near what it should have been. Ordered medium-well got medium-rare or almost rare. Server tried to make up for it by comping desserts.

My wife had the signature dish, Chilean Sea Bass. She loved it. Pricey but it does come with a Caesar salad. I had the Snapper. Also very good. Wines are reasonably priced. Cappuccino was a nice way to end the meal. We sat close to the window and had a good waterfront view. Server was extremely attentive. Busy place so make a reservation. Worth going.

BEAUTIFUL SETTING ON INTRACOASTAL WATERWAY. WAITER WAS ATTENTIVE BUT NOT INTRUSIVE. COCKTAILS WERE PERFECT. DESERT FANTASTIC. DOWNSIDE WAS THAT MY WIFE'S SNAPPER WAS WAY TO PIQUANT (NOT APPROPRIATE FOR SUCH A DELICATE FISH) AND THE SLOW ROASTED PRIME RIB, (ALTHOUGH COOKED PERFECTLY TO ORDER) WAS SO SALTY (AND I AM A SALT LOVER) THAT IT OVERPOWERED THE PARMESAN IN THE PARMESAN MASHED POTATOES. KALUZ IS A BEAUTIFUL SETTING FOR COCKTAILS, NOT SUCH A GREAT PLACE FOR DINNER.
