Been here several times. Food was excellent as always. My favorite is the macadamia crusted fresh catch with mango sauce. The lobster orchietta and grouper cheeks are also "must haves." The menu ranges from seafood to beef to duck. Something there for everyone.

Salads were on the edge of fresh. Some wilted greens. Bok choy tasty. Yellowtail Sashimi pretty awful. Tiny pieces definitely not fresh. Sent back and got a white fish called Walu. Never heard of Walu. Turns out it is a buttery, oily, (indigestibly waxy) tasty...More

We were told by several locals to stop by Kaiyo for drinks and sushi. And to go early as Happy hour (half off select beers/wines and appetizers) was only from 5-6, and it fills up quick. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of sushi...More

Great sushi place. Excellent selection of every kind. Not a lot of selections but what they had was good. Beer, wine and sake was all they had at the bar. The Brussels sprouts appetizer was perfect and a huge helping. Wish this was closer to...More

Stopped in after a day trip to Key West and was not disappointed. The sushi was fresh and tasty and the beer and sake cold and refreshing. The waitstaff was friendly and courteous.

We happens upon this place from the recommendation of a former local. We pooped in and sat outside. Everything we got was scrumptious. Even the simple edamame was the best I've had,( key lime juice secrets ingredient)

Within walking distance of the Cheeca lodge, we loved eating sushi there! Service was excellent. Portions were generous. The rolls were creative and fresh. We would definitely go again

We had the edamame- with the lime sauce that gave it a little something special. Grouper cheeks were amazing! I would go back just to each these over and over again. Hubby had macadamia nut crusted chicken- not on the menu but it's one of...More

I had ordered "fresh" cobia as did several of my friends. The cobia was inedible. I will never go back and I cannot recommend it particularly given the prices. The Key Lime pie was good though.
