Went to Kaiyo Grill based off a recommendation from the girl working at the Green Turtle. It was AMAZING! One of the best meals we have had in a long time. Not only do they have sushi but they also serve meat and chicken dishes. It is on the expensive side – entrees from $20 - $35 but well worth it. A truly pleasant surprise.

SouthGeorgiaPorch,

Thank you so much for your fantastic review of Kaiyo Grill. We are just thrilled to know that we were among the top meals that you've had! It's also nice to know that you were recommended to dine with us while dining at our "sister" restaurant the Green Turtle Inn. I hope that you enjoyed your experience there as much as Kaiyo. We hope you return soon!

Great service and cute place for a nicer evening out (little more pricey than other places but fantastic food).

We ate dinner here our last night in the Keys and I would highly recommend it. I liked that tthey offered very good grilled fish and meats as well as sushi - so something for everyone. My husband said his grouper was the best fish he had in a while. We ordered the Islamorada roll and it was delicious. Grouper cheecks were very good but skip the fried eggplant chips.(sounded good but wasn't). I also had the grilled tuna appetizer and it was good. We sat outside and had a very nice waiter. Worth a visit.

1walker1,

Thank you for your review of Kaiyo Grill. It sounds like you had a pleasurable experience while dining with us. I agree with you and your satisfaction with the menu offerings. It's nice to have the option of Sushi, while also having an option like the Ribeye. There is something for everyone, like you said. I'm sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your eggplant chips.

We hope to serve you again at Kaiyo Grill on your next trip to the keys!

Had a lovely time at the Kaiyo grill over Christmas! Really excellent service and the food was outstanding, definitely our favorite restaurant in the Keys. The ahi tuna is a must have and I really enjoyed the filet mignon. Great destination for fresh, fantastic food and guaranteed to make a memorable impression.
