My wife and I arrived for dinner at 8:30, advertised hours are 5:00 to 9:00. When we walked in we were informed that they closed at 8:30. This appeared to be for the convience of the staff, not the customers.

Although I didn't get to Kaiyo this trip, I have had Happy Hour and appetizers here the prior 2 visits, and thoroughly enjoyed it! Their brussel sprouts appetizer is TO DIE FOR!

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.

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)
