  • Nice place for dinner on Market Night
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 11/20/2014
    We ate at Kaiser Grille on a Thursday Market Night (VillageFest). It was easy to make a reservation for through OpenTable. The restaurant wasn't as busy as I've seen it in the past. They seated us outside, which was great since we could watch the activities going on in the market. My dish (the Spaghetti Alla Norma) was just OK. It tasted a lot better after adding some hot chili flakes. The bread was very good and my wife's choice of the linguine with alfredo sauce and prosciutto was excellent. The service was a bit spotty, but the waiter made up for it by giving us a free slice of cheesecake since he'd forgotten to bring a glass of wine that had been ordered.

    Kaiser Grill food is reliably good and the outside ambiance is great. Inside is perfect for lunch meetings. They were very kind in honoring an open table reservation even if we were 20 minutes late! And the service is always friendly---thanks!

    As a year around local in Palm Springs I have dined at the Kaiser grill many times. I feel however lately that I'm being asked for more and more money for the experience. Recently the company that owns the Kaiser Grill did away with their long standing frequent diner program. This was a program that set them apart from many of the other eating places in the valley. Now I find when I go they want $5 to let me park in their parking lot. Saturday night I drove into the lot as I have done for years to park my car for dinner. I was chased down by a man telling me I would have to pay $5 to park there. I explained that I was dining at the Kaiser Grill and he said it did not matter. I was upset and moved my car into the street. If the Kaiser Grill is hurting so bad that they now need to charge their good local customers $5 extra to park in their lot something is wrong. I don't pay to park in Ralph's parking lot or at Wal-Mart. Where does this company get off doing this? I will seriously re-think my love affair with the Kaiser Grill in Palm Springs.

    Overall, the food was very good. However, the prime rib was disappointing. Mine had little flavor and my guests had lots of grizzle. I'll be back but will select a different entrée.

    We celebrated my sister's birthday at this restaurant. The service was attentive and the ambiance was pleasant. The veranda/patio dining out front afforded us a view of the passers-by in Downtown Palm Springs. The food was good, simple and elegant.

    Kaiser Grill has a great location, and is a good choice for either indoor or outdoor dining. On this occasion, I think the server was overwhelmed. He was very personable, but never around when we needed him. We had a Kaiser burger and Asian chicken salad. The burger was tasty, but slightly underdone. "Medium" was more like rare. The Asian chicken salad was on the dry side. We ordered extra dressing, but that took almost 10 minutes after the salad was served. Drink refills were consistently tardy, and even paying the check took too long. I would return, but really do feel that the service level needs to improve to warrant repeat visits.

    We recently spent a week in Palm Springs on vacation. We found Kaiser Grille the second night we were in town and loved it so much that we returned several times during our vacation. The corner location on the main street made for an energetic scene while enjoying great food and service. Reasonable prices and nice portions too!

    Our first time here & we really liked it. Lovely setting. Perfect service (Fernando with support from others). Martini was full & strong just as it should be. Both our salads were great. My husband's sea bass rice & veggies were great. My pizza was good except for a so-so crust. We had enough to bring home for leftovers. We will dine here again!

    I've eaten at Kaiser Grill at least 3 times in the past year. It's great central location in downtown Palm Springs, varied menu and friendly/professional service keep me coming back. We were seated promptly, offered several different table locations and greeted immediately by our waiter. The appetizers are ample size to share, and the crab cakes were delicious. Several of us then had salads as our entree; tasty, fresh and tasty! We never felt rushed, and all of the staff always greeted us with smiles. All in all, another very nice dinner experience!

    I recently went here for my birthday thinking since this is a sister restaurant of the chop house it was gonna be an awesome dining experience. Not at all! Got all dressed up for nothing! People were walking in with tank tops and flip flops on! Since i live in the area the chop house and LG's are by far more elegant than this place. The menu was too overpriced. To me this restaurant is kind of a cross between Denny's and the chop house.

    We decided on a Friday night out, impossible in season. The restaurant quite nice, but seemed overstaffed for the number of people coming in/out. Food was good, but the Mediterranean salad was too loaded with chickpeas. The pizza had a great crust and was quite tasty. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable. Nice place for a summer night.

    Amazing food!!!! Definitely a place you must try when you are in the downtown area of Palm Springs. The service was fabulous. Kimberly was our server and Sir was also attending to us and they were the most kind and polite people. Also theanager personally made an effort to come to our table and thank us for dinning there. The filet mignon was cooked perfectly and my fiancées prime run was phenomenal. Needless to say this place exceeded expectations. And the misters they have in the patio were def a must in that desert heat. Definitely will eat there next time we are in town.

    We traveled to Palm Springs as our Palm Desert Kaiser was closed. We had reservations for 7pm, but got there early and they were able to take us. We had a nice booth inside. Everyone was nice. Service was prompt. When we arrived, we saw that there was a sunset dinner that we missed. If we knew that existed, we would have come earlier. Waiter was nice, but didn't know his drinks...had to ask someone else. Dinner was super quiet; no ambiance. When we were leaving, noticed lots of diners outside, nightlife...etc. If we knew the nightlife was vibrant outside, we would have asked for a table out there. Communication from the restaurant would have been nice. It was just an ok evening experience.

    IT was 106 degrees outside, and the same inside. We stayed because the server kept saying it would just be a moment until the A/C was fixed. Never came on. My steak and appetizer were just OK - roughly the quality you'd expect from a mid-rage chain restaurant. My dining partner liked the pasta. When we left, it was obvious why so many of the staff congregated around the front door area. It was nice and cool there! They didn't bother to say goodbye or thank you. In fairness, I should mention that my previous visit here was better. But won't risk another visit - especially for a special occasion dinner.

    A very good dining experience inside for a change (it was quite warm outside). Recommend the banquet tables, which are higher and offer a view both inside & out. The food was well-prepared and the portions generous. The Spaghetti Bolognese was made with a very thick noodle & large amounts of meat in the sauce, with enough for two servings. Our other entree was the Bacon Chutney Burger, which was done to the desired temp & very tasty. The staff was very personable & attentive and we enjoyed the more moderate noise level inside as compared with the street noise of the patio.

    I had the prime rib, another had a burger sans the bun and the other party had a wedge and an appetizer. The Prime Rib was hearty, but kinda bland in the beef flavor arena. The horseradish and au jus was excellent. The haricot verts were done well. The burger without the bun was not fully consumed by the person that ordered it. The wedge could have used a liberal dusting of bleu cheese. The appetizer which consisted of prosciutto, toasted bread, brie and arugula was a hit.

    We enjoyed a lovely dinner on the patio. Food was good. Tuna seared rare with stir fried veggies was very tasty. My dining companion raved about the pork chop. Said it was just about the best he'd ever eaten. Service was sometimes slow and uneven. We enjoyed and will go back, but if the service had been better, it would have been a perfect evening.

    Dine around advertised kaiser grill at 26.00 3 course .. They charged 38 for the 3 course very mediocre food .. Bill 112.00 with one drink I didn't drink .. In and out burger would have been 10 times better for 10.00 .. I would like compensation for false advertising . I could have gone to Spencer's and got good food for 38.00 per plate I was mad all night long ..

    We chose this restaurant because we were looking for a casual dinner with reasonable prices. We were seated outside which was fun because a music festival was in town that weekend and the town was hopping that night. Even though Kaiser Grill is not a pizza place, per se, all four of us ended up having different pizzas and everyone enjoyed their choices (margherita, mushroom truffle, traditional meat, shrimp pesto). Nice wine selection (we had Sonoma Cutrer). Good service.
