    Disappointing dining experience. Quality of the food was good, but nothing came out at the right time. Entrees for two of six in our party 30 minutes before salad and soup for two others. Served the wrong salad. Sushi came out 30-45 minutes after that. Incredibly slow and inattentive service. I expect much better service from both kitchen and wait staff given the cost of the meal. We have dined at Kaiyo many times over the past ten years and have always been very satisfied. Not tonight.

    Brought friends that live in Key Colony Beach that have not ever dined here. They were skeptical of being worth the drive, we assured them that it was. They enjoyed as much as we did. Outstanding sushi & hot lava chocolate cake & ice cream yummy

    Kaiyo is always a treat for us while in the Keys. Even though the menu has changed and is a bit more limited since the last time we were there, we always enjoy the first class food and service. This time was no different.

    Love Kaiyo! We have eaten here 4 times in the last month! We bring our own catch sometimes as we love their preparations. But charging only $2 less for “cook your catch” is robbery. The eggplant chips are excellent! Drink prices are a little high but the food quality is great.

    Used to be the gem of Islamorada. Some of the best staff inexplicably left in 2019-ish, the menu was altered instead of expanded, and it has never been the same. It’s not bad but not what it was

    Good quality food and presentation with many options for sushi, fish, steaks and good service as well. Wine and sake list is varied. We come to the keys every year and Kaiyo is a must. Grouper cheeks, candied Brussel sprouts, tuna squared roll and b28 roll and kimchi was excellent with a very good bottle of French Sancerre.

    It was an absolutely fantastic time! We had Hillary as our server and she took the most amazing care of our party of 7 adults and 7 children. She was prompt, friendly, took care of the kids so the adults could have fun… ya know what I’m saying. All around amazing experience. Bruce, we will be back down to see you! Thanks for the call of appreciation. I’m so glad to hear from you! We visit this restaurant every time we are in the keys. It’s our #1! We brought 2 extra families with us this time and now they have a new favorite key’s restaurant!
