Usually 5 stars
Had a reservation and still waited too long.
Asked for bread a few times. Bought just before the food arrived.
Was somewhat disappointed with the beef and mushroom appetizer.

I worked there in the 70’s when it was Stans. Absolutely wonderful restaurant. Ryan was our waiter and he was amazing. All the staff was extremely friendly the food was great. Such a beautiful restaurant! Stan would be proud.

Everything about the restaurant was great except for the noise. The acoustics are very "hard" once the restaurant fills. The service was impeccable. The table location looking directly out on the intra-coastal was great.
My seafood salad was outstanding and my guest's trout was "the best I Have ever had" she told me. All in all a great lunch.

Food and ambiance were great the server was good she made some recommendations. The only thing I did not like was the fact that they took so long to clear the table. Our server and other servers passed us numerous of times and did not touch the empty dishes. There was also a male employee in there fussing at his colleagues and that was very unprofessional

Food was bland. Had no flavor. A bit pricey for bland food. Service was slow but adequate. But it is a beautiful location.

Everything was great, except we sat in the same as last time, booth facing the water, lovely view but it’s the second time we got water drops on us from the ceiling. There is obviously a leak in the roof. Crab dip is the best and fantastic drinks!!

Ive been to Kaluz many times. The restaurant is nice but the food this time was really very underwhelming: Ceviche was very small and the little bowl was 60% full...and enough chips for a small get together. The fish we ordered was smothered in rice and not that flavorful. The tables were soooo sticky! server wiped it down (reluctantly) with water but that did not do it so we spread out our white napkins to keep from sticking to the table. Overall its was just ok but thats to be expected in Fort Lauderdale, the bar is not very hight so Kaluz is living up to the what is anticipated. Sorry to see the place seems to be getting worse. I"m sure I'll go back but without any expectations at all. Thanks for asking but I know nothing will come of this.. Stefano

We are happy to drive 40 minutes for the ambience, service and food. It never let's us down. We keep asking for the chef to bring back tuna burgers. So far no luck but we will keep trying.

The food was good and the view was great being right on the water but what really ruined the whole experience were a ton of huge flying cockroaches on the outside that almost climbed on my wife. Quite honestly one of the most disgusting things I’ve ever seen at a restaurant and shocked that I saw it a restaurant of this quality. Unfortunately, because of this I don’t think we’ll ever go back
