    Was a little disappointed about not having a table next to the windows or seats outside, but overall great service. Also, there was traffic on the way to the bathroom and back to my table, due to the people at the bar. I didn’t like that at all.

    My overall view of Kaluz was great food although the inside of the restaurant was very cold initially. They did turn the a/c down which improved things. We initially shared a tomato flatbread which was excellent and my guests had the kabob and salmon. I had the lump crab cake and although it was very good there could have been more of a salad or coleslaw type side with it as it was much less than the other 2 meals. My chardonay ( Hess) was excellent and I would recommend the restaurant and I will return.

    Definitely was worth the drive from Miami to Fort Lauderdale to meet out of town Friends halfway. We have dined here previously and have enjoyed ourselves once again. The service was very attentive and the food was tasty as well as the cocktails. Nice selection on the menu and outdoor dining too.

    Kaluz is a fun dining experience. The Zagat review piqued our interest so we made reservations. The restaurant is located on Commercial Blvd right on the intracoastal waterway and boasts a stunning outdoor eating area along the waters edge. The outdoor tables are first come-first served so cannot be reserved. But the tables inside overlook the water, the bar area or kitchen, which all offer interesting views. The food is outstanding. We started with grilled octopus and tuna tartare, both of which we absolutely recommend. The octopus was perfectly tender and tasty while the tuna had a scrumptious, light dressing topping avocado. For our entrees we got the Chilean sea bass with artichokes, set on asparagus, always a favorite and this was superb, and the Thai salad with spicy shrimp. Generous portions so we took half the salad home. We will definitely return. The food was truly wonderful. The frustrating part of dining here started with nearly required valet parking. If you want valet parking you’re golden. But they don’t make it easy to park yourself. There is parking along the inside edge of Commercial Blvd, but we had to ask where we could park. The restaurant is very popular so we had to wait a short bit to be seated while they found more menus. Not really an issue, but I thought I’d mention it. Our server was pleasant enough but we felt rushed throughout the meal. The server kept saying our food would be right out and we always said we were in no hurry and wanted to enjoy a leisurely meal. But we hadn’t even had our starter plates removed when our meals came out. The white Viognier wine we ordered arrived @ room temperature and had to be chilled in a stand-up plastic bag with ice, set on the table, before we could drink it. Once chilled, the wine was a perfect compliment to our meals. Overall, our impression was good. The food alone is worth coming back to try again. Hopefully next time we can get a table outside and enjoy a relaxed evening dining on the water.

    We were able to sit outside. It was beautiful. Ordered a salad and the Filet Mignon to share. Had drinks and wine also. Steak came rare, not medium. Others arrived and ordered after us and got their meals before us. It just seemed that the service was not very attentive. I'm sorry about that because I was really excited to go and have dinner there.
