Being long time patrons of this wonderful establishment, we were surprisingly disappointed by the recent inconsistencies in both the service staff and the food quality. Hopefully management takes note and makes an effort to rectify this problem.

We had good overall experience, attentive staff and nicely timed service.\n The Chicken-quinoa Salad was delicious.\n I only wish that instead of having burning hot dressing in it, the Thai shimp Salad'd had some cilantro and garlick and a touch of ginger in it , just to make it taste Thai-ish, not just spicy.\nThe lunch salad portions were generously sized. Then, again, with $15-$16 price tag it's better be!

Kaluz is a lovely restaurant and we had a great table inside by the window. The food was very very good, great flavours and good portions. We had the sea bass special, fantastic. The prime rib was very good as well. The restaurant is extremely busy and we had to wait even with our reservation. But definitely worth going. You won't be disappointed.

I have been to this restaurant three times for lunch and it never fails to please. Yes, go there for the view on the Inter-coastal but the menu is full of very interesting American creations. From salads to Hamburgers, the place is has consistently delivered a fine meal. I have never been there for dinner, but if lunch is a indication, the dinner should be lovely.

Kaluz is very good. The martinis were very good, I had a smoked salmon dip app that was excellent. Our dinners were very good. Our waiters ( Ashley and Jeff) were perfect, friendly and helpful. Decent wine list that wasn't overpriced. Try to get a table close to the water, as far from the bar as possible. As I was leaving, we walked by the bar, the noise was deafening. Dining near the bar would be impossible, I would have walked out if seated near the bar. It's not cheap here, it's upper scale dining, if you're on a Olive Garden budget this place isn't for you.

We ate at Kaluz based on reviews that said it was an excellent waterfront restaurant.\n\nWe were not disappointed.\n\nMy wife was not particularly hungry, so she ordered a chicken quinoa salad. I was huge with generous serving of chicken. She said it was delicious.\n\nAlthough I had expected to order seafood, I was tempted by the baby back ribs served to a table near us. They, too, were delicious.\n\nThe service was impeccable and the view of the Intercoastal was outstanding.\n\nWe will return.

Everything was great, but we did not get an outside table, which was disappointing. The service was outstanding and they handled a problem we had wonderfully. One thing was our friend mentioned it was our anniversary, but they ignored the fact when we had dessert and she thought they would put a candle in it. It was no big deal and we had a nice evening.

We were treated very well when the outdoor table was not available the manager made it happen for us which we were very grateful since we drove 2 hours to celebrate our sons 21st birthday. Unfortunately there were people that were extremely intoxicated, loud and cursing throughout our entire dining which disturbed Many patrons. No one at the restaurant dealt with these people and they should have. You should think twice about letting intoxicated boaters dock at your restaurant. We suggest you no longer allow boats to dock and dine.

Great waterfront location, frendly staff, modern decor. The food gets four stars for the soggy calamary appetizer ( probably would be a better idea to serve the sauce on the side instead of pouring it all over calamary), a ceviche with giant pieces of seafod floating in a pool of liquid, making it more of a soup than an appetizer and for the taste of old cooking oil, reused a few times while cooking, the fish I ordered tasted just like that. The duck with quinoa was good, also my compliments to the barista for a great Margarita on the rocks.

Next time I am down from New York, I will definitely be back and hopefully Phil will be my waiter again. Everything was simply perfect!

I was more favourably impressed with my first visit (last year) when I was able to sit outside on the patio. The view and vibe outside kicks the dining experience up a notch.

We have eaten at Kaluz many times for both lunch and dinner, and in fact just the night before as well. The Snapper special (we had 2) was dreadful. The fish was dry and tasteless accompanied by two horribly overdone shrimp. The filet mignon (we ordered 2) were way too salty. Finally with dessert I ordered coffee and it was barely lukewarm. At that point our serverwho had been lovely all evening was nowhere to be seen so I left the coffee.\n\nA very disappointing evening considering it was my aunt's 70th birthday dinner...

Great food and service from our waiter but I would give the experience 4 stars overall because of our initial interaction with hostesses. We requested in our reservation to be seated outside. The hostess sat us at a table inside and when I said that our reservation asked to be outside, she said they didn't reserve tables outside and it would be a 45 minute wait for a table outside. I can totally understand that policy and that's fine, but just by chance I decided to pop outside and ask the outside hostess how long the wait would be to sit outside. She said they had a table available immediately! I've worked in the service industry before and I think the original hostess should've at least walked the 10 feet outside to see if a table was available outside by chance, even though they can't reserve tables outside (which we were completely accepting of and didn't try to fight). Anyways, other than that the food was AMAZING, our server was great and the experience overall was very good!

My wife and I were looking for a place to eat and came upon Kaluz in Open Table. We found the menu to be intriguing and the reviews quite positive, so we made our reservation. We could not have been happier with our choice. The atmosphere was wonderful. Service was outstanding (we sat in the bar area and the bar manager took care of us). The food was fabulous. My wife and I are sorry Kaluz is not where we live otherwise we would visit often. We will certainly go there the next time we are in or near Fort Lauderdale.

We experienced Kaluz for the first time just over 2 years ago. We travel from out of town to the once a year. Kaluz has become a destination for us. We try to dine at least twice while in town. Until this year's trip our experience has always been 10 out of 10 and this is why we return. This year with our first visit again service, menu and setting were perfect. My friend and I order the 16 oz New York done Medium. The steaks came out almost well done. We were hungry and the restaurant and our server was very busy. So we mentioned the problem but did not return the steak. Later that week we returned and explained our concerns from our last visit and would like to try again. Once again my friend and I ordered the 16 oz New York done Medium. My friends came out rare and mine was medium-rare. They were sent back and corrected but again we were disappointed this happened. Every other aspect of the meal was a 10. The server and manager were visibly embarrassed and worked their tails off to make it right and we appreciated that. They may need to provide more training for the people operating the grilling station. We will be back next year hoping for the experience we have enjoyed in the past.

I was very surprised that even with a reservation they gave us a buzzer and said it would be a few minutes, which turned into more than a few minutes (20). Then we had a table by the door to the patio, which was very difficult. Got knocked into by the wait staff every time they came by to bring food to and from the patio. We actually pushed our table further against the wall but to no avail. Food was good though we will avoid this place 'in season'. Too many other restaurants that honor a reservation to deal with a buzzer.

On a beautiful South Florida Sunday we chose Kaluz for an early lunch. We were seated outside in their chic patio bar area. The views were spectacular, as well as the people watching. From the hostess to the busboy everyone was so friendly and helpful. We selected two appetizers, the mussels and the calamari, both delicious, but the mussels won the show! We were stuffed but went on to order the Ahi salad to split, needless to say, even thinking we were too full, we cleaned our plates! Top Notch!

We then kept looking for the waiter but he was no where to be found for a long time. At other restaurants they automatically come by and refill the water glasses and/or glasses of tea.

Arrived a bit early but were not made to wait. All our reservations have been punctually honored as we make effort to arrive on time. \nGreat wine list. Chose a reasonably priced prosecco we know and enjoyed it throughout the meal. IF YOU EXPECT BREAD & BUTTER DON'T HOLD YOUR BREATH... AND THANK YOUR LUCKY STARS, because you need all the space available in your tummy for the delicious food that follows!\nAppetizer plate (calamari) to share among 3 of 4 diners was huge. Can't see one person having it alone. Entrees were an 'ostrich size' whole baked chicken, two orders of filet mignon done to perfection and accompanied by large loaded potatoes, and Kaluz Danish ribs. Minor detail... had to ask for towels for the rib diner. Dessert (of course!) consisted in salted caramel dripped brownies and ice cream. 3 shared 1 1/4 dish and 4th diner snarfed remaining 3/4 dessert. Espressos rounded out the meal.\nOutside setting is gorgeous, and available on first come first served basis (no reservations). We always want to dine inside, so it is never a problem. Reserve with Open Table and enjoy.

The worst experience I've ever had at a restaurant. The food was okay, the location was great but the service was extremely poor. Our server was extremely rude and arrogant. He was no help in selecting anything to eat and his responses were so rude. The person I went to dinner with, recommended that I not tip him but I did anyways. When he saw how much I left him he came back to the table, walked by and said 'wow man, that was really great, that's gonna help me so much' and then stopped and turned around to see my reaction. I would never go back to this restaurant. Never experienced such bad behavior in my life.

I had a ice tea with lime and hubby and I ordered the Filet mignonMW , hubby had Medium cooked cooked perfectly , kudos to the chef , just a little pink. No blood on plate either . Plus a loaded baked potato . They must put salt around potato it was very good. Of course. Our server was a delight, Casey from Boston. Ice tea in new glass and the lime when glass was empty .

What can I say other than...outstanding!. We always try to make it to Kaluz whenever we're in town and this was no exception. The stone crabs are in season and needless to say, I ordered them as an appetizer and again as the main entree. My 'date' had the filet. But that was not all...the service is what makes Kaluz so special. We were greeted by the friendly valet service attendants, then by the smiling hostesses who directed us to the outdoor area and then, without hesitation were seated at our 'favorite' table which came available just as we stepped outside. But most impressive were our duel waiters...Andrew - who took our drink order since the waiter who had our table was taking another order and then AJ took over after that. Not only was he attentive, but friendly and sincerely engaging. He actually remembered us from the last time we were in town in October. It just felt like coming HOME! Thank you all for another great evening. See you next April.

Kaluz has never disappointed for the times I dined there for dinner. This occasion was for lunch with 3 girlfriends. Our waiter Joseph (from Staten Island), not sure there is another Joseph, was extremely nice. He helped with selections and was pleasant in conversation. We all enjoyed what we ordered. I had the lamburger and it was so delicious I told Joseph I could eat another!!!\nHe was not at all pushy and understood that I was dieting and didn't want carbs, sugar or starches. He offered some other veggie options and seemed to really care about my health choices. I hope I can have him for a waiter the next time I dine at Kaluz!

Enjoyed a drink outside in the 'lounge' area on the Intracoastal Waterway with our friends. Service was excellent. Wine choices excellent. Atmosphere perfect. Table outside ready before we even finished our cocktail and it was lovely. They were able to customize several dinners - no salt, no peppers, etc. My fish and fresh asparagus (unsalted as ordered) were pricey, but delicious. The ceviche special fairly priced and outstanding. Everyone was very happy with their meal and the evening in general. Would absolutely go back.

We were concerned that we wouldn't have enough time for appetizers and dinner--but David pulled it all together in a very timely manner.\n\nThe calamari was delectable. I wondered if the Chilean Sea Bass was such, but it was tasty nonetheless to me and my friend. My Imperial Longfin Grouper was some of the best I'd ever eaten.\n\nTo make me feel even better, a server noticed that I was cold while sitting on the dock, and 'fired up' the outdoor patio heater.\n\nMy first experience here was an awesome one.

The worst part is trying to make a reservation. Once you arrive complimentary valet parking is the only way to go. We checked in with the hostess and were politely greeted and taken to our seats around the bar. \n\nOrdering drinks was a breeze as we chatted with friends and perused the menu. Something for everyone and some nightly specials to add a little flair. Wifey ordered Pomegranate scallops and I chose the NY strip steak served with baked potatoe. I started with a Ceasar salad that was simple and right on point. \n\nWhen the entrees came out, my cut of steak was definitely not a strip steak but rather than sending it back I opted to keep it since it was cooked as I liked and I didn't want to delay the dining experience. All ended up fine and our meal was exceptional overall.\n\nIf you haven't been to Kaluz, put it on the list and get in there, you won't be disappointed.

I have avoided going here for a long time. Don't know why, other than people keep saying how expensive it was. The food prices were very reasonable. The alcohol was ridiculously expense.\nThe service was excellent. Food came out of the kitchen timely. I ordered Prime Rib and it was a very nice cut, very little fat and at least an 1' thick. The other dish we ordered was the cedar plank salmon. It was delicious. I would recommend going there for dinner, but drink before you go.

I was here the first time with the love of my life and it was amazing. Thank you. Brought my brother in law for anniversary amazing. Brought my sister for her birthday GREAT. Then I brought the love of my life again to ask her to marry me and I wish I had not gone to your place. The waiter was not compassionate it was also my birthday and we were not even acknowledged. Why go to you pay so much money and treated as if I were at fast food restaurant? The most important time of my life and not even an acknowledgment

I am a huge fan of Kaluz, and have never had a unfavorable experience, until my visit on 2/17/16, but II will continue to support Kaluz, because I'm sure this poor experience was an exception. It is my 'go to' place for out of town guests and recommend it a lot to newbies. \r\nOur reservation for 2 was at 6pm, We were seated at the last table on the left of the southeast row of tables on the river (closest to the bridge). Our server who greeted us was very attentive. Apparently, she was expecting a party of 12 at 6:30pm that was going to be seated right across from us so we were the only customers she had until the large party arrived. She was very attentive. The appetizer (mozzarella wrapped in prosciutto with fresh spring salad and great Kaluz vinaigrette was excellent. However once the large party arrived, it seemed we ceased to exist. The server was busy with the large party, and our meal was delivered by either a bus boy or a runner. He got the order mixed up, (no big deal) ,but didn't leave knives and took us a while to get the servers attention. The rim of the plates were not wiped down and looked dirty. Both our dishes were barely warm. The filet that my friend always gets and is usually incredible, but not look or taste fresh. I had the grouper topped with crab which was dry and without much flavor.

We never were asked about ordering a drink , when we were told we had to move it was done in a very rude manner .

I have dined at Kaluz several times since moving to Fort Lauderdale 2 1/2 years ago and I have enjoyed each experience. This visit was to celebrate my son's 33rd birthday. He was so looking forward to the blu cheese burger that I worried he might be disappointed. He wasn't! We started with the lollipop chicken appetizer that was much more substantial than I anticipated. He ended up taking 3 lollipops home. Next we had our entrees, his the burger which he raved about, mine was the thai noodle salad with shrimp, excellent. My wife always gets a salad topped with salmon and, as usual, she loved it. We finished our m heal with a heavenly bread pudding, a huge portion that was more than the 3 of us could handle. I strongly recommend this restaurant, however judging by the crowd it doesn't need any help from me!

Kaluz came highly recommended by a friend. We've been wanting to go for months. After dining there we were very disappointed. Food was greatly overpriced. $43 for a piece of Chilean Seabass. A four dollar sharing charge. A nine dollar up charge for the lobster mac and cheese which was over-cooked, salty and not worth the price. Service was OK but we had to ask for water and bread. All of the food was heavily salted. The ginger calamari was rubbery and had the same dressing as the cold quinoa salad. Very odd. The only thing that was very good was the espresso dessert. Everything else was disappointing. We won't be going back.

The occasion was a get together with friends. We had been to Kaluz before, and liked it for casual dinners. This time, we had a dinner planned with friends visiting the area. So here are a few observations:\n\n- We had requested a 7:30 time and an inside table at the windows. OpenTable showed no 7:30 availability but 7:45 - okay.\n- When we arrived (a bit earlier), the restaurant was almost empty. They gave us a table away from the windows despite several empty ones, the answer was they were reserved. We did not see guest seated on those for a long time.\n- The server was a bit reserved and did not seem too interested in our party.\n- We ordered wine, salads as appetizers and entrees.\n- The salads arrived but no bread with it.\n- 3 of the 4 entrees were very good, the Filet Mignons and the Ribs. However, the Scallops were severely oversalted and the Quinoa was far too cold.\n\nSo all in all a mediocre experience. I would not take friends there for a nice dinner. It's okay for a casual evening on the water with your significant other but that's it.

Been here going on half a dozen so far I estimate. Always booking through open table. \n\nI love the vibe here: casual, elegant, boating atmosphere. Large and modest sized yachts pull up to dock and linen shorts pop out, but also some women dress over the top bleached blondes and bojangled bedazzlers dot the bar stools. It's Very Miami but with the friendly unstuffiness as a plus that it is not Miami. And I love my hometown but I recognize its faults. \n\nThe Food is fabulous and plated elegant enough without pretension. Hearty portions ensure you a conflict at dessert time. My favorite waiters are Jeff and another waitress whose name begins with a T. She is sassy NY and adorable. So tell them 'Daniella Sent Me' and they may look at you puzzled. Tell em anyway and start a thing. \n\nDietary needs are respected - meaning go ahead and make your request. I love that they don't bring bread to the table (I'm like Julia Dreyfus in that film 'Enough Said' where I prefer they don't bring it because I end up eating it!). But They have amazing flatbreads that you will love so order those for carbs.\n\nFood is abundant so share the apps and enjoy your main fully that way because you know the best part of a meal is dessert. Here you will want to agree. Their bread pudding gets an OMG.\n\nThe outside tables are not reservable so get early to your reservation and go outside and Sophia will seat you on a first come first serve.\n\nTable 112 is my favorite so please don't book it... of course when I don't take the booths outside, which are the best option for outdoors if you aren't sure how the weather will turn.\n\nFree valet parking but you can park your own next lot. \n\nMaybe I'll see you there? I'm the one grazing on the chunky guac.

But, the brunch doesn't fare so well. Had eggs benedict, cold potatoes, skimpy on the sauce. And at first seating when it is not yet crowded, you don't expect this to come out of the kitchen. You can have better breakfast food at any local diner, but the view is incredible and the service was excellent.

The building sits on the intracoastal waterway with walls of glass, dark wood and tall ceilings,\nbut the food is not comparable. Beware the steaks but other items are fine including\ngood salads, sides and bread.

We have always enjoyed Kaluz and went with friends Saturday night for dinner. We arrived a bit early to have cocktails at the outdoor bar and as our 6:45 reservation approached asked about being seated outside since it was empty. The receptionist gave a fairly cold, that could be ok, but with the weather a bit questionable if you choose outside and it rains , we will have no indoor table for you. Looking at the forecast we said ok and were lead, with an attitude to the outdoor seating. As we took these seats we noted that they were hard wicker seats and, having been there before, that these seat usually had cushions. We asked about the cushions and were told, we aren't sure if it will rain so the cushions have been stored away. When we said that it was not going to work without the cushions we were given the eye roll and told, I will ask the manager. Not really a great way to treat customers. They are a ton of great choices in the general area of Kaluz and knowing that, this experience may push us to use those instead next time we plan what we hoped would be a fun, comfortable evening with friends.

Kaluz is consistently excellent. The ambiance for the indoor dining spaces, most with views of the intracoastal, is just outstanding! The architecture and interior decor are amazing, modern clean lines, yet it all provides a cozy feeling. There's a great bar area - and the additional, outside space is to die for! That area is glamorous, tasteful and romantic in its design. There are multiple levels of dining areas, including tables and couches with low tables, which all may be served from the extensive outdoor bar. The service is always friendly, but waiters(resses) ar hard to summon once your meal has been served. They could improve on this. There is also often mandatory valet parking, which is off-putting, particularly when valets fail to open the very heavy doors to the restaurant for you! These criticisms, however, are not enough to keep us away, Just wish they'd improve on them!

Made reservations a week in advance for this restaurant. Got there and had to wait an additional 45 minutes to be seated with a view of the intercostal. The restaurant is very modern and beautiful, but the food is lacking. My filet mignon had no flavor and was well over cooked and cost $36. The bernaise sauce tasted like a sugary lemon without any herbs. The dessert was bland and nothing special. Probably will not go back. Over priced food just for a view of the intercostal

Went there for a bday dinner. After being seated, No waiter or waitress came by, not even someone to give us water. Waited about 10 min, and looking around, but no one came to us. Finally grabbed a busgirl who was helping 2 tables away trying to figure out who our waiter was and we actually ordered our meals with her cuz we didn't know how much longer it will take. Waiter finally came by after we ordered our food via the busgirl, and he was not even slightly apologetic. Anyways, food was average at best, nothing special, maybe slightly better than the average TGU Fridays. Food was slightly over priced. The place has good decors, views and all, but service was bad and food was just so so. Not worth the price. Compare to the previous dinner at another restaurant, Market 17, kaluz was definitely a big letdown

7:15 reservation and taken on time. Appetizers were good. One couple ordered danish ribs and the seabass special asking first if she could have the seabass without the sundried tomatoes and well done and was told yes. The other couple ordered the danish ribs and the prime rib medium rare with the loaded baked potato with the toppings on the side. The seabass came out with the sundried tomatoes mixed in with the artichokes and was not well cooked. The prime rib was not even pink inside and the baked potato came out with the toppings on it. We then asked for a manager who did not seem too sympathetic. He said the sunddried tomatoes were mixed with the artichokes and there was nothing he could do but make the seabass more well done which would have dried it out. The loaded potato was replaced, but he said I could not get the prime rib medium rare as they were all this way. I ordered a salad, but was very disappointed. The salad was just okay. The ribs lacked were slightly dry and needed more sauce. I have never been to a restaurant where I could not get a piece of prime rib medium rare. The manager did however comp the seabass (which was not eaten) and the salad. We were very disappointed in the restaurant.

Kaluz is a beautiful modern restaurant inside and out and (if your view is not blocked by a docked yacht) offers wonderful views of the Intracoastal. Have been there a few times and twice recently, most recently for dinner. Overall dinner was great but they advertise their crab cakes as having lump crab meat but to me the consistency was shredded and I should have brought this up but we were very hungry and involved in our conversation so I let it slide. Waiter was very personable but, for not being very busy, the time to receive our entrees seemed overly long. We were also there about a week before for brunch with some other friends and overall the food was also very good except the French toast, while very tasty, was too tough in consistency. Our waiter that day had no personality and seemed like someone had recruited him off of the street to be a waiter that day - very unpolished and not what you would expect in this restaurant. Would love to try the outside dining (if the weather is not too warm) and/or have a cocktail at their outside bar next time as it is a beautiful setting with a cool relaxing vibe. They do not accept reservations for outside dining so keep this in mind. Despite some inconsistencies, this remains one of our favorite restaurants and we look forward to returning many times.

this was our second visit to Kaluz; last time it was a chilly nite, so we sat inside and loved our table at the window\non this visit, we found the most comfortable chairs next to the bar for the four of us- on the outdoor terrace; we asked our waiter if we could order dinner there instead of taking our reservation inside, and he agreed\nWhat a wonderful night- perfect weather, perfect service, and delicious dinner\nstarted with drinks- made well and followed all our specifications\nTwo of us orders salads for dinner, and we did not leave a speck- from very generous portions\nThe crowd at Kaluz is mixed- young and old\nHighly recommend for the food, ambiance, setting, etc\nWe will come back any time we are in FL

We were first unhappy with the table having a reservation but the one waitress was so amazing and sat us at table ten where we had yet another wonderful waitress a little older than the others but superb great view great food we introduced friends who never we're there before and it was someone's birthday but none of us wanted desert and the waitress overheard us and brought him ice cream with a candle so special . We enjoyed going outside to have cocktails and lounge looking at the boats going by on a slightly cooler beautiful evening we have taken everyone that comes to visit us here and they all really like it and we do too keep it up \nThanks

Although Kaluz looked fully booked when we arrived, our party of 5 was seated promptly in a cozy booth on the terrace overlooking a canal. Very romantic setting but a chilly night.

Kaluz was a great find for us. Located in a nice neighborhood, nicely decorated and appointed, very open and relaxing with a great view situated on the intercoastal waterway in Lauderdale by the Sea. Nice array of menu selections with good nice specials that are value-priced. Our waitress was very friendly, patient and professional. We all had salad prior to dinner entrees and everything was excellent. This will be on the 'must return' list of great restaurants.

I booked reservations at Kaluz because of the location and the good reviews I saw on Yelp and the like\nthere were four of us, and we were celebrating a special birthday\nupon check in, the hostess was not particularly pleasant, but as it turned out, she gave us a lovely table inside along the windows, overlooking the intercoastal\nour appetizers and main courses were excellent\na family member had made the arrangement to send us two desserts for our special occasion- however, the waiter (who was great) told us they were complementary, not that they had been sent from outside the restaurant- so that was a little confusing and embarrassing since we did not thank our family member until she asked us about the desserts\nby the way, the bread pudding was outstanding \nhaving said that, we had a wonderful evening and will return

This is the 4th time Ive been to Kaluz and ai have never had a bad meal there. The only entrée dishes I havent tried are the ones with beef. The salads are a great bang for your buck with the portion size given. The appetizers are so scrumptious! We still havent had room for dessert, but the options on the menu look great! The atmosphere is beautiful and quite romantic at night and perfect for a date night or anniversary dinner. Its also a nice place for dinner and drinks with friends. My partner and I love to get dressed up and go to Kaluz! With the of one awful server, we have always had great service. Never had a problem finding a table or making a reservation online.

We've been coming to Kaluz since the second day of their opening. Kaluz has been our favorite dining destination in South Florida. However, this visit was not a normal exceptional experience. Yes, food was outstanding and the setting is flawless. However, our waiter was too formula trying to rush our ordering and constantly hovered not just attentive as he should have been. He was in a hurry and a bit sloppy looking. Kaluz wants to make a profit but if this is their new tactic, we we adjust the frequency of our visits. Hostess came by 5 times with her dining tablet looking down at our plates as if to say 'stop talking and eat'. We spend a lot of money at Kaluz and this rush tactic spoiled our evening!

Food was excellent - it always is. It can be a bit pricey, but not outrageous when compared to other similar options. One complaint I have is that they only take reservations for indoor seating.

Very attentive, terrific personality and loves his job. He could have not been better serving us, we had a party of five. He even went out of his way with the Manager to give us other sites AND restaurants to visit. Class all the way!

We were looking forward to dinner here based on the great reviews and references from others. But we were strongly disappointed. Each item we ordered arrived at the table within 2 minutes or less of ordering, which mean that all the food was cooked long before we ordered. I tried the ahi tuni burger. It was charred, overcooked and tasteless. The waitress never stopped by the table after the food arrived and never asked if the food was to our liking. My burger should have been sent back and replaced with anything that had taste. First and last trip here for us.

Lunch at Kaluz was a treat. The service was excellent. The Grouper tacos were beautifully presented and delicious. It was a lovely experience . One recommendation: our table was near a stone step shortcut to other tables in the area. While people could have been led through the bar to the table, the shortcut was used most of the time and was disruptive.

I ordered a Manhattan up at Kaluz and since Ian Fleming introduced the shaken Martini in the James Bond series, this idea has unfortunately become widespread. Shaking a cocktail not only makes it more dilute but also introduces enough air to make the drink foamy. You would not consider shaking Scotch with ice; why do that to Bourbon, Gin or Vodka? In the past all of these cocktails were to be stirred with ice.

My appetizer of shrimpcargots were delicious and very different! I never have seen shrimp served instead of escargot! And my crab cake main course was wonderful. My husband loves the pork chops at Kaluz and they don't disappoint. Our two companions both had the delicious cedar planked salmon - portions so huge they both took half their meal home. Should have had the key lime pie.......didn't adore the banana cake dessert we had. Still a great restaurant with gorgeous views and generous portions of wonderful food.

When we were seated our waiter came right over and the service continued to be very good. The food was excellent, with a nice variety of dishes. We took a walk outside, as it is situated overlooking the intercostal. The view is beautiful and we want to come back during the day and sit outside. I would recommend this restaurant.

Beautiful restaurant, gorgeous water view, nice staff, but the food was not very good. Guacamole was just a barely mashed avocado with some onion. No seasoning, no salt and pepper, no lime, no cilantro, no flavor. They served our guacamole and chips with a cup of red salsa as well, however, it tasted like pasta sauce, not salsa. It was awful. My snapper was overcooked with no sauce. It was supposed to come with mango salsa but the mango salsa was just cut up mango and onion. There was absolutely no liquid. The fish was so dry and overcooked it was difficult to swallow. My loaded baked potato deserves five stars. It was the best thing I ate that evening. If not for the potato, I would be rating the food with one star.

The dining experience at Kaluz was very good. I had the lollypop drumsticks and the tuna tartar. Both were well seasoned and fresh.

The dining experience was awesome. My husband and I tried the Chef's Choice which was not listed in the menu. He had salmon, rice, and asparagus topped with a mango sauce that he found to be delicious. I had the lamb chops and potato wedges and it too was scrumptious. We had the shrimp scampi and Italian sausage flat bread as appetizers. The shrimp were humongous and the flat bread was plentiful. I did not give service a 5 because the waitress suggested a dessert for my husband’s birthday then delivered 2 itemized receipts to the table and a total receipt as well. The itemized receipt and total receipt differed in price. When I inquired, she stated the dessert/cake was added on after the itemized bill had been cancelled out. Although She offered to print a new receipt indicating the price of the dessert with the added candle, I felt as though she tried to slip in the cost of the dessert. I would have ordered a dessert regardless for his birthday, but I felt as though she attempted to camouflage the price which really wasn’t bad at all.

The restaurant itself is beautiful & is set up near the water.\nThe hostess wasn't very friendly.

I chose Kaluz for my birthday dinner as it's my partners' favorite restaurant (and he would have pouted if we went elsewhere) and after reviewing their menu online I saw items listed under their 'small plates' section of the dinner menu that I was interested in ordering for dinner. \n\nOnce we arrived, were seated and were given a chance to look at the menu, I noticed there was no mention of the 'small plates menu'. I proceeded to pull out my cell phone to look up the restaurant's menu to see if I was mistaken, however, 'small plates' was clearly shown on the online menu. \n\nWhen what I thought was our server came to our table for our drink order, I asked about the discrepancy between the website menu and the printed one. I was rather rudely told that the small plates menu was during happy hour, and happy hour was over. If I wanted to order items from that menu, we could be seated outside, where there was a 35-40 minute wait to be seated, or be seated at the bar, which would not be my ideal place to enjoy a birthday dinner, in my opinion. \n\nWhen our waiter did stop by our table to tell us about the daily specials, I again asked about the small plates menu, and was told it was unavailable. \n\nI only agreed to go to Kaluz because I was interested in ordering from the 'small plates' menu. I wasn't thrilled with the rest of the menu, which had not been changed in well over six months, if not longer. I feel that Kaluz deliberately deceives potential customers by showing a menu that is unavailable for most of the evening on their dinner menu, with no qualifications indicating that it's limited to a certain time of day. You could easily refer to their ploy as a classic bait-and-switch.

I was surprised that this modern, somewhat minimalistic restaurant was so popular with families.

The food was very nice, well presented and well served. \n\nFrom our experience (this theoretically being low season) you really need to reserve a table over the weekend as the place was packed the whole time we where there.\n\nNice place, nice location a bit expensive but worth a little more than your average restaurant just for the location, ambience and dining experience. Nice bar scene (when you can get to it).

We were looking for a place to have lunch outdoors by the water, and my friend remembered reading about Kaluz. The atmosphere outside was perfect, with a well designed outdoor dining area complete with a modern covered bar, a relaxed lounge area and more formal seating on the patio and dock overlooking the canal. Service was pleasant.\n\nWe ordered the chips and guacamole, a special of the day, and it was the most generous portion I can remember at any restaurant. However, it could have used a bit more flavor and acidity. It had a little bit of cilantro and onions, but nothing else. The addition of the salsa helped. The dressing of the Ahi tuna salad was a bit too sweet for my taste, as the added fruit would have been enough alone. The lamb burger was perfect, and the fries were crispy.\n\nI would definitely go back for the outdoor dining experience.

They don't seem to care about open table reservations Bc for the past DOZEN reservations I have had they always take us to one of three booths that face the wait staff station and it is a very unsettling feeling. This past time I told them that there were open seats in the dining room and I didn't want to have staff watching me eat and by the way it's not the staffs fault. Their response to me was that those tables were reserved for 'other ' people and that I would have to wait twenty minutes or so until another table was free. I feel that the hostess staff is unfriendly and again not caring that these tables through open table are actual reservations too. It's a shame Bc we love the restaurant but I may have to think twice after seriously twelve seatings at the table in the bar. It's outrageous. Reservations beware.

My parents are wonderful folks getting up in their years. It's not often they are in town so my wife and I wanted to take them someplace nice but close by. We checked out a few places using Open Table's review system and decided on Kaluz. The parking is virtually non-existent but the valet was easy and we slipped right in. We were actually seated 15 minutes before our reservation time which was nice. The dining room has high ceilings and it is very well lit with natural light entering from the large water-front windows. We elected to seat inside because of the heat but the patrons seated outside seemed to be fine and enjoying themselves. A good mix of diners from old to young streamed through the restaurant and it was nicely active.\n Our waiter was friendly (in a natural way) and ordering was easy and quick.\nThe menu was easy to read although it was a bit shocking to see how some of the items were priced. Never-the-less... we were there with my wonderful parents for which we would spare no expense. Our appetizers came quickly and... what I like... the empty plates were promptly removed. Our meals came soon after and everything was simply delicious and filling.\nOh what the heck... let's order dessert too. It's not often you get a good Bread Pudding but this was over the 'top'. My parents elected to order the Brownie w/Macadamia Nuts and they ate every smidgen.\nAnother thing I like... the plates were taken and the check delivered and processed in a timely fashion. Thank you waiter A.J. for a wonderful experience and thank you Kaluz for more excellent memories with my parents.

I have been to Kaluz before and will be back again, not for the food but for the view and the ambiance. The place is gorgeous and for that reason it is a good place to bring our out of town friends and relatives. That said, I think the food is just ok and the prices are extremely high. On this visit the calamari, usually my favorite, was extremely chewy. The tomatoes in my tomato mozzarella stack were mushy, the bbq chicken flat bread was devoid of both chicken and bbq sauce, so, disappointing at best. My wife didn't rave about the sea bass and she always raves about their salmon, guess she should have stuck with that. Anyway, we had a great table, a capable server, and a fun time with our relatives.

Meal was excellent, drinks cold. We had sea bass and scallops. Oysters were not that great as they were small, warm and did not have salty water. They were dry. Overall though a pleasant meal. The view is killer

The food is great, the staff are accommodating but the food service is soooooo rushed! We are not slow pokes sitting for hours. We like to enjoy a cocktail and conversation before ordering. We also always order a salad with dinner. If we order our dinner at the same time as the salad, the entrée always arrives within minutes and before anyone could possibly finish the salad. My observation, do not order your entrée until you are ready to eat it. It will be tableside in minutes.

My girlfriend and I were in Ft. Lauderdale for a week's vacation. We made dinner reservations here on our last night in town. We arrived early about 8pm and were shown to a table right next to water. We had an amazing view of the intercostal waterway, and the following sunset. For our first course we had a smoked salmon dip which our server Jody featured, it was delicious. I had the duck confit which was cooked to perfection and served with a nice sweet sauce. I didn't care for the quinoa that it was served with and I chose a different side of mushroom polenta, also very delicious. My girlfriend had herb roasted chicken which had a nice lemon kick to it with tasty garlic mash potatoes. The food was excellent, the view beautiful, and service was impeccable.

Kaluz was recommended to me as a place to take my boyfriend for his birthday. I was NOT disappointed. The food was amazing ... The crab dip appetizer, loaded with plenty of large chunks of crab, the ribs were excellent, the meat fell off the bone. Although stuffed, we ordered dessert, bread pudding, I was only able to eat two bites, but it was delicious and just as good the next day. Can't wait to go back!!!!!

The food was mediocre at best. The steak was under cooked, the salmon was overcooked. The service was not very attentive until we asked for the check, and then it was a rush to get us out. Nice location, maybe better for happy hour and apps by the outside bar.

When we requested an outdoor table the haughty hostess said those were first come first serve and not for Open Table reservations. She sent us outside where another unfriendly hostess said we would just have to wait our turn. After looking at the overpriced menu with no unique offerings, we made an Open Table reservation across the waterway at Blue Moon who were super nice. After all this was a Monday night.

Heard it multiple times - so should have paid attention - sit outdoors when dining at Kaluz. Interior dining room is dramatic but has acoustic issues so conversation was a strain. Food was above average. The grouper daily special was overcooked, but both the chicken and lamb off the menu were very good. Portions are very large - we would prefer focus on quality over quantity. Wine service was just average considering the expensive cabernet we selected. The restaurant was very accommodating when we asked to reschedule the reservation to a later time.

Great ambiance great food. Felt blown off by our waiter. Had to ask twice for water and didn't get water well into 15 mins of being seated. Took at least 20 -25 mins to clear our plates, maybe was too busy but just upset that you get this kind of service for 90 per person

Our table ordered 2 Prime Rib meals, one medium and one medium rare. That one that was medium rare was overcooked and needed to be returned. We also ordered a Prime Rib burger with no onions and it was slathered in onions. It was not returned but the dish was disappointing to say the least. Our server was attentive at first but then would disappear for long periods of time. For the price of the meals and the sketchy service, we will not return.

As usual, we had an outstanding meal with outstanding service. This is, by far, my favorite place. I would like to comment that on a recent evening, there were two young women who left the restaurant obviously drunk. The valets did them a favor, as well as everyone else on the road, by not allowing them to drive, despite an unpleasant scene. Other arrangements were made and I think the valets should be commended for their good judgment. This is another five stars for Kaluz!!!!

This is such a special restaurant - both for the food and most especially for it's upscale ambiance and outstanding views with the location right on the intercoastal. We have recommended this restaurant to many of our friends and have taken some of them for their first time. All have raved about it. The menu is wonderfully varied and has a price point for all - from moderate to expensive. \nWe always hope that we can be seated outside, but sometimes the wait is too long. However, we have drinks outside first, to take in the view, and then when we are seated inside, it's wonderful as well - especially if we're seated near the enormous windows overlooking the water. \nWe look forward to being back SOON.

Michelle our server made our experience most enjoyable! She explained the specials clearly and slow enough for all of us to understand.

This restaurant was a very nice experience. We went for lunch. The noise level was good, but it wasn't a full house. So I can't comment on when it is full. The only 2 things that weren't good were: that there isn't enough self parking and sitting near the side door, there were a lot if flies coming around. Not a good addition to the overall ambiance of the restaurant. Other than that, the service, ambiance, taste and quality of the food was superb.
