WORST FOOD EVER – this is the worst food I ever had!!!! no words can describe the dissapointment, took clients there trying to impress them instead i was embarrased and these were "vip" clients which no one even knew who they were but, owner of very high profile companies. to say the least my food was cold, tasteless i just dont understand why if the place is so beautiful...I will not return to eat...
Upscale all the way! – Being in all around the world best , best restaurants is easy to say but hard to acomplish: there are already a few really good ones. Not once but about 4 - 5 times we, my husband and I and, in a couple of ocassions with our daughters and some family members and friends, had the pleasure of eat at Karu & Y. This is the only thing that I will say about a restaurant, and I think it's more that enough to say. Excellent food, gorgeous presentation, unique combination of flavors to pleased the most demanding palate. Awesome all the way!
The Food is Terrible – I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY MANAGEMENT DOES NOT DO ANYTHING ABOUT THE FOOD OR WHO EVER INCHARGE IS. HONESTLY THE FOOD IS BAD. I GUESS NO ONE LISTENS. KEEP IT UP KARU; YOU ARE HEADING THE RIGHT DIRECTION. IF I WAS THE OWNER I WILL FIRE WHO EVER IS IN CHARGE OF CREATING THIS SO CALL CULINARY ARTISTRY...HORRIBLE.
Beautiful restaurant but food needs work. The decor of this place is amazing; there is a gorgeous Dale Chihuly chandelier in the center of the dining room. The waiters are dressed in very chick outfits, but in my opinion the food does not fit this place. It?s hard to understand and the menu does not have an identity. Food is not up to quality of the restaurant, prices are too high for what it is. Food wasn?t fresh and lack flavor. The couple of dishes I had did not make sense and not executed correctly. Desserts were atrocious. I hope they appoint the challenge of this establishment because it has a potential of success.
After reading the reviews now I agree with them.
Great Place!!! – I recently visited Karu for my anniversary dinner and the experience was remarkable. Aside from the beautiful decor and friendly staff, the food was delicious. I had the Kobe Steak and my boyfriend had the short ribs. The food was scrumptious ? everything was well-seasoned and tender. The chocolate dessert we shared was mouthwatering (next time I?m getting my own). After dinner, we headed to the club next door until the late hours. The night was AWESOME!! I look forward to our next visit.
FANTASTIC New Year's Eve Meals & Music! – And my most recent visit to Karu & Y was on New Year's Eve. It was $400 for a preset menu for two, which in my opinion, was a reasonable price considering the quality of the food served and what other restaurants were charging for that night. We started off with with duck three ways (prosciutto, confit, and foiegras) - all of which were delicious (confit being my favorite!!). The entree was a very very tasty snapper. Dessert was a variety of petitfours (choc. covered strawberries, cheesecake, mousse in choc. cups, etc). Everything was perfect, delicious & beautiful. Afterwards we walked over to the Y Lounge where the music was lowered enough for everyone to shout the countdown to midnight- AWESOME! We spent the remainder of the night dancing and drinking yummy cocktails. By far the best New Year's Eve I've ever had. I plan on celebrating my next Birthday there!! The hostess even called us a few days later to thank us for our visit & to ask if we had a pleasant time. Who could ask for more?! Karu and Y is elegant, classy, and overall a fun place to be. Those who put this chef's innovative cuisine down simply do not have the palate for fine dining. The four (or more) times I have been there I have thoroughly enjoyed myself. I have to say that the chef is always on his game because THE FOOD IS CONSISTENTLY FANTASTIC! !
Great service, great vibe, great CHEF! – I royally enjoyed the food, atmosphere and design. There are many places in Miami that dont do the restaurant and service industry justice. I am a personal friend of the chef and know that he has put his heart and soul into the taste of the food, adding his own unique touches to traditional entrees as well as creating new ones. Such a great place!
Great food and atmosphere – We were very pleasantly surprised last month when we went to the restaurant for my parent's anniversary. The food was very good and the atmosphere was enjoyable. We will highly recommend it and expect to return soon.
WORST FOOD EVER – My husband and I decided to try restaurant again! The restaurant and lounge looks amazing but the food is another story. I ordered the red snapper, instead I received dry, flavorless fish and what appeared to look like fishsticks tasted like aged croquettas that one would buy from a grocery store. Again we aren't the most critical foodies, but it's obvious from what is good and bad, and this meal was awful. My husband and I were extremely dissapointed what started as a romantic dinner filled with high expecations ended as an insult to our palette and our pockets. Karu-y is the worst restaurant on my list no wonder Zagat gave them the worst rating in Miami. I much rather eat at Pollo Tropical than at this place. If you want to party I strongly recommend the club. But I will be boycotting the restaurant until they replace the chef.
Gotta LOVE IT! – WOW! When my husband and I walked in to the restaurant I was so impressed with the place that it took a while for me to remember that I was there for the food! I was already pleased with the evening even if the food would turn out ok- but I was so happy to also see how a place with all that class had also a great chef working in the kitchen and some serious great service.
you gotta love it! Try it out and you won't be sorry
thanks Karu & Y!
