"Kaiyo Grill is by far the favorite restaurant of the locals we met and spoke to. Nice decor and atmosphere, higher priced menu and appetizers, but well worth it. Thumbs up!"
“This is one of our favorite restaurants in the Keys and we consider ourselves "foodies. Truly Amazing!!!"
“The best ever crunchy roll is amazing. Fish is fresh and decor is cool. Chef is really nice, he even came over to our table! Amazing drinks.”
“This restaurant was so good I went two nights in a row. The specialty rolls were excellent. I had the Best Crunchy and Macadamia hog fish. These rolls had a variety of interesting flavors and ingredients."
"This is a favorite local hang-out and one of our top picks in the Keys. In fact, we eat here about once a week. The eclectic menu includes really excellent wood-grilled local fish, prime steaks and a great sushi list."
"We loved this restaurant. We ate at this restaurant twice, the food is excellent and the service is great...We liked everything we tried at this restaurant. This is a do not miss if you are in Islamorada."
“Went there for sushi and it was amazing! It was probably some of the best sushi I've ever had. Price was average. Great decor - make reservations ahead of time for outdoor seating.”
“We were very impressed with the menu, it had everything anyone could ask for. The only thing that surpassed the food was the service. Our waiter was very helpful and courteous."
“I visit the Florida Keys fairly often, and I go to the Kaiyo Grill multiple times each visit. The menu is excellent, with a wide variety of fish, sushi, and salad to die for."
"If you are looking for great food and a good menu then look no further this is your place to dine when you are in Islamorada, sushi, steak, seafood, great appetizers and great cocktails! My favorite is the ginger pork dumplings."
"This is the best restaurant that we have been to in the upper keys, and since we're locals, we've been to almost all of them. The food was superb. The atmosphere is subdued chic and romantic. We had a great time and can't wait to go back!"
"My husband and I enjoyed the chef's choice of sushi, which melted in our mouths from the first bite! Grouper cheeks were also a delicacy which we thoroughly enjoyed. The decor was unusual in an elegantly eclectic way!"
