Kaiyo restaurant is run by Chef Dawn Sieber who has a long-established reputation in Islamorada.

Nevertheless, you can't escape a slight sense of incongruity when visiting this restaurant. It's an upscale establishment serving sushi based on a hybrid of Florida and Asian influences and in Islamorada, a place of steakhouses and seafood grills, it seems a little out of place.

We did the unthinkable in Islamorada, arriving without a reservation. The server left us to order and eat our meal while perched at the bar.

OK, we hadn't reserved a table so we couldn't expect to get one, but what irritated us was that having embarked upon our appetizers we were then asked in mid-meal to move seats to allow other customers to be seated nearby. That was out of order.

Overall, the food was very good but service was let down by that incident. I hardly think such an incident would have any resonance with the establishment anyway since Kaiyo seems to have a mostly local and therefore regular clientele upon which it can rely. After all, there are no other reviews here and Kaiyo's been open since around 2001.
