  • This was a birthday celebration
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 11/7/2009
    This was a birthday celebration that I was hosting for my dau and the RSVP's became quite inaccurate at the end. We only had 7 guests instead of 10 and were still charged 20% gratuity. Now ordinarily I would just shrug it off to bad luck, but 20% was also applied to the already over the top charge of $20 to open a bottle of champagne...we had two...plus the fact I purchased a birthday cake there to save on the $3.50 per person slice charge if we brought our own. I could have sliced and served it myself for free! The cake was no where near as good as the cake I would have purchased, but the cost was prohibitive. So I ended up paying a 20% service/gratuity on the entire bill.

    I was not impressed at all with service and the 12.95 bbq chicken came with just 2 pieces of chicken and I picked a side of fries. Nothing else. It was like a kids plate. Presentation was awful and food tasted just ok. I will have to find another place.

    I felt like the service was a little slow. I don't think that it was the servers fault but it was still too slow. We had a large party and I feel that it is ridiculous that you do not split checks. I am also very disappointed that i had put in the notes that it was for a surprise party ant when I came with the birthday boy the hostess ruined the surprise by saying... "they're upstairs!" I was very upset about that!!! We cam and spent a lot of money on food and drinks to make this night a special night and I just don't feel like it turned out as good as it should have!!

    The entire experience was memorable. We had requested a handicap accessible table through OpenTable.com and it was set and waiting for us when we arrived. There was no waiting involved. The food was very good and prompt. Our party had a variety of foods (salads, burgers, pasta, reuben sandwhich) and all were pleased with the quality of the meals. The best part of the meal was the desserts: apple tart and chocolate chip cheesecake. Make sure to save room for them (they are big enough to share)!

    We have dined at Kelsey's many times over the past years and have always had a pleasant experience with good food and service. However on this date, which just happened to be my birthday, the service was very poor. The waitress was inattentive, for example, she never told us the specials, never asked if we wanted an appitizer or drinks, never refilled our water glasses, and could seem to care less about us. The food was still top rate, however, it will be sometime before we go there again.

    This was not our first time at Kelsey's. We love Kelsey's and it is one of our favorite restaurants. The ambiance is nice, friendly and relaxed. Their food is outstanding and very reasonably priced. Even if you don't gamble, Kelsey's is a very good reason to visit Pechanga Resort. If you enjoy sports, you can watch several different big screen tv's while you eat or enjoy a drink. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Love the whole pig (ribs) they were delicous, plus such a big portion at a reasonable price. This was my second visit to Kelsey's and I picked this place overall the restaurants in wine country for my 40TH birthday celebration. Thank you for making it special.

    I had a party of 4 for dinner and on the most part the dinner was not acceptable. 2 people in my party order the barbecue pork ribs. It was mostly fat and the part that was meat was like jerky. The meat was dried out and covered up with barbcue sauce. It should have never been serve. For myself I ordered the filet mignon and it had no flavor to it. This was my third time there and I was so disappointed in the food that I will not return again.

My only complaint was that I asked for my sandwich to have no mayo, but it did. I didn't say anything, but I wish the restaurant had paid better attention to my order.

    We were there on the same evening as a very large wine tasting at the hotel. So, the wine glasses we were given at our dining table were pathetic, small and unmatching. At one point the Manager came by and apologized. Also for some reason, that same night the kitchen was very backed up and our food came very late. (we sat down at 6:30 pm and barely made the 8 pm show) Our appetizer never did arrive, and our server did not follow up until we pointed it out to her.

    Very disappointed!! We ate at Kelsey's about a year ago, great food, service, etc. Don't know what happened, but I stretched to rate this restaurant 'fair' overall. First off, they acknowledged we had a reservation but stuck us at a tall table in the bar (NOTE: they cater to the bar crowd). We requested a booth and were told it was a 2-hour wait. Asked for a manager, who set up a "special" table...almost like a card table, in the corner of the restaurant. Once we ordered, we received food quickly (can you say microwave??), but unfortunately their Pechanga Grade A beef tasted like liver, was overcooked. At this point we just wanted to eat and get out of there. But we did have good service from the wait staff, however pointless.

    The restaurant has beautiful decor. We made 5:30 reservations and they took us to our table on time. We had a party of 7. I enjoyed my flat iron steak and salad. I thought the price was reasonable and the portion of steak was very large. The service was good. I would recommend this place for an intimate dinner or for a larger group. My friends ordered t-bone steaks which looked very good and large. The atmosphere is great. My other friend ordered sandwiches which were reasonably priced, but they looked very tasty. The variety of the menu is good, and pricing is reasonable.

    It's a nice restaraunt, with a really cool bar. However, I didn't actually sit at the bar. Our server was quite proficient, and the food was delivered quickly, without any mistakes. However, the food was dissapointing. I ordered the seafood special, which was swordfish with a pineapple pudding, and pineapple salsa. The salsa did add a tangy contradiction to the swordfish's savory flavor, unfortunately, it wasn't the culinary pop I was looking for. The fish was slightly overcooked. As far as the pineapple pudding, it was breaded, and overcooked. I just plain didn't like it. I rate the dish poorly. Others in my party ordered the "whole pig". I sampled these ribs, and the outer edges was quite overcooked and tough. Again, not impressed.

THANK YOU !!!!! Not on to the staff of Kelseys but the entire pechanga ataff really rolls out the red carpet for each and every visitor.

    Kelsey's is a great place to grab a quick bite to eat before hitting the slots. It has a sports bar atmosphere so if you want a quiet place to dine this is not the place. There are other good options at Pechanga for a quiet dinner. There are several TVs around to watch the current sports being televised. There is a variety of food items on the menu and the bar is good.
