Almost every local we asked suggested Kayo's when we mentioned seafood. It's in an old Denny's next to an Econo Lodge, but do be fooled; this is a top-notch restaurant in a city full of brewpubs! White table cloths, attentive wait staff and an owner that stopped by the table twice, but we were very at-ease in very casual attire.... More

This was one of the best meals I have eaten. The recipes were gourmet and delicious. I had the Chinook and my husband had halibut. Service was fast and courteous. Great atmosphere. Everything made from scratch-melt in your mouth delicious!

Went to Happy Hour on a Friday Night. Ordered a spicy margarita and a not too sweet lemon drop. Meh... OK but nothing special. Ordered Ahi Tuna, Steamer Clams, Caesar Salad and Halibut Fish Sandwich at HH prices. Nice to see a place that had HH until 7 pm. All the food was very good and our server was super... More

I enjoyed the meal here and the price wasn't too steep. The place used to be a Denny's which was kinda weird, but they did change it up so it didn't look exactly like one. The wine choices and food options were good and they were able to make considerations for food allergies and sensitivities. I would go back if... More

By looking at the street view we were hesitant to go inside Kayo’s as it was sitting next to an Econo Lodge and we wanted fine dining. However, we decided to venture forth and are very glad we did. The inside decorum was elegant and warm as well as all those servers and owner who greeted us. We ordered the... More

I feel like the food here is prepared with great care. I've been here twice and both times it was awesome. Kano, was present both times and I can only assume that is what keeps the quality and service on point... Rack of lamb done to perfection. Scallops delicious. Appetizers were great. Yes it's a bit "spendy" but I got... More

What else can I say? Every time, every dinner, every selection is so well prepared and tasty..I am amazed that this restaurant is not in the top 5 in Bend! We have eaten here for 10 years and have never been disappointed.

Kayo's provided a very nice atmosphere for our anniversary dinner. The food and service was outstanding. We had a nice chat with Kayo and the waitress was very efficient and knew her wines. We both had seafood and it was delicious. We spent a lot more than we usually do for dinner but we came away feeling that it was... More

Kayos always surprises me. The owner's touch is always present. Home made ice cream. Try the ice cream taster of several flavors. Little kids [grandkids] are welcomed with immediate service while the adults talk. Thoughtful service is a hallmark of the restaurant. The food is always good.
