    My husband and I had the best dining experience beginning to end! Thank you to hostesses Liz and Bailey for letting us move to a different table by the pool so we could fully experience the majestic atmosphere! And our server/bartender Douglas was just the best! So attentive, fun, and personable and even started the night out with taking our picture in various spots around the restaurant! Food & drinks were outstanding and we will most certainly be back when we return to 30A! Thanks for a wonderful date night!

    It was mostly highs but a couple one low. The service was incredible and will come back again. Loved our server and the whole vibe. Felt Covid safe. The only low was pasta dish that I thought was going to be pesto burrata and breadcrumbs and came out tasting like milk and mint. So much mint. But the server noticed that I didn’t really eat it and brought us a complementary dessert. I don’t fault them. Just wasn’t my favorite dish. Everything else, the dip trip + tuna tartare were amazing and we will definitely dine here again.

    Meal was rushed - food was average. I had the short rib - it was extremely dry. The lobster lettuce wrap - the taste of the mayo(?) based sauce overpowered the lobster. Wine was nice and the cheesecake tasty. While there were very few tables there was a private event - with guest speaker was extremely loud and distracting. Pool is always beautiful in the evening.

    By far the greatest atmosphere. From walking up to it, to the Covid precautions they have, to the food. You won’t be disappointed. The nicest staff at the beach is working there. The food no matter what you pick is incredible. Great portions, and the flavor I will dream about until we come back next year. So glad we had this restaurant recommended to us!

    Unfortunately our experience was a disappointment.. I was so excited about this date. We made the reservation a month in advance since it stays so booked. The ambiance was beautiful.. our server, Khonger was wonderful. The Grilled Octopus and the Frisée salad were delicious. I had the Bee Sting martini and loved it. John and I both decided to get the Grilled Beef Tenderloin.. mine Medium and his Medium Rare as Always. Our server went over what that means and we all agreed. When they came out we both cut into each of our steaks to make sure it's done properly, as is customary in fine dining establishments. Mine was grayish brown, his was light pink. We shined our phone lights on them to get a better look and our server quickly picked them up as he too saw that they were both over done. He was very polite about it. Not a big deal.. it happens. We carried on with our conversation enjoying our drinks and the atmosphere. A little while later a young man came up to our table and introduced himself as the general manager, Gray was his name. He said, "I don't mean to be confrontational here, but this steak IS cooked properly.. maybe you just can't see." I wasn't sure which of us he was even addressing. So I asked him. He didn't know whose steak it was. We politely told him that the steaks that we were served were both over done. We were both stunned that he been so rude and arrogant. I am surprised that such a fine establishment has a manager that has no couth. He acted as though we bruised his ego by simply wanting our food prepared properly. I shared with Gray that he really might want to try a different approach in the future. I really wanted to Love this place and have an amazing evening. When I choose to spend $300 on dinner, I expect better manners than this, so disrespectful.

    While the overall ambiance of the restaurant in Alys Beach is simply stunning, and the service was good, the food felt overpriced compared to other exceptional restaurants in the area. Nothing we ordered (from appetizers through dessert) was exceptional.

    Exceptional dining experience in a beautiful setting- wine list very reasonable. We started with an octopus appetizer and delicately flavored hummus as appetizers. The skin snapper and scallops are excellent choices for entrees. The chocolate mousse had an interesting touch of sea salt. Caliza’s bread pudding wasn’t the best ever but certainly had a fabulous whiskey sauce! Service impeccable and all staff considerately wore masks during the pandemic. Make this your special 30-A go to place!

    Caliza was absolutely amazing! Best restaurant we dined at during our Seaside stay. The food was impeccable. Best pork chop I’ve ever had and the scallops and snapper were delicious. Service was also great. Our waitress was very informative and knowledgeable of the items on the menu. She did advise that the chef changes the menu often, so will love to go back again in the future. It’s also a in a beautiful location in Alys Beach, can’t go wrong!
