Description: Reinvented 2010 Kaiyo GrillKaiyo, Islamorada's haven for the best sushi in the Florida Keys, has just morphed into something even more special.Kaiyo Grill...it's the Kaiyo you've loved - showcasing the freshest sushi and Island fare - but now...with a grilled twist. It's Still Kaiyo, but oh so much more. Our Islamorada restaurant and our celebrated chefs continue to create menus worthy of rave reviews now showcasing Island-influenced, Asian and Wood-Fire Grill cuisine. Imagine: Sushi, like Yellow fin Tuna and Sea Urchin; classic Thai Green Curry; and heartier fare, like Wood-Fire Grilled Filet Mignon with gorgonzola and shiitake mushrooms and hardwood grilled Rack of Lamb finished with a honey and brandy glaze.

This place is seriously amazing. One of the best sushi rolls I've ever had, I forgot what it was called but it had fried red fish in it, OMG. Delicious. Our server was very nice as well. I wish they had this restaurant near me!!

My wife and I on our annual visit to the keys decided to try Islamorada. Driving around the area we saw Kaiyogrill and with all the season crowding it looked like we could get in. Talk about luck, what a deal. Incredible food, great waitstaff and pure fun. First time I ever had Cobia and Wahoo sashimi. The presentation was... More

This is not a cheap meal but if money is no object it can't be beat. Reservations are a must, it has always been packed every time we have been there. The presentation is beautiful and everything taste just great. If you are in the area don't miss this restaurant.

My son and I had been looking forward to the Drunken scallops. They did not disappoint. Very rich, but very good, and the lobster mashed potatoes that accompany the dish were also very good. We also did some sushi, which was very fresh. Our Waitress, Christina S., was very friendly, very helpful with our questions also. Also, if dessert is... More

My friend had the Udon noodle dish with fresh local seafood, hubby had stuffed shrimp and our other friend and I had sushi. Every dish was off the charts. The service was excellent as well, highly recommend!

Recommended by a friend. Food was good but my expectations were set too high. Good place but it must have been an off night for the sashimi.

Thank you Kaiyo Grill for a wonderful meal. We sat on the veranda and enjoyed world class sushi whilst the children had great baby back ribs. Food, wine and service were superb. Highly recommended.

We return here year after year when we visit the keys and it has consistently been an excellent place for dinner. The service is great and the food never disappoints! I am not a sushi eater so I enjoy trying the other dishes on the menu and they have all been great! The threesome of Mac n Cheese was delicious... More

Once again we turned to Kaiyo Grill for our Birthday celebration. Once again the food, the service, and the wine were outstanding. Alligator Hogfish and Drunken Scallops just can't be beat. We had to make reservations due to the true "season" the keys is experiencing this year, and I'm glad they are accepted at Kaiyo.

If you like to get your sushi from the supermarket, you may want to forego this place because you'll never enjoy supermarket sushi again. I had the Nigiri and Sashimi from the menu and had my daughter order for me. What a wonderful and tasty, high-quality plate of sushi. The atmosphere is inviting and service is just right. I'm from...
