    We had an early dinner reservation in order to attend the Palm Springs Follies the evening we were at the Kaiser Grille and were pleasantly surprised to find an "early bird" special of a three course meal for $19.99. We chose the restaurant to bring our friends for a 50th anniversary gift along with the theater and were so glad we did! Food was excellent and even though only two of us chose the special, our meals were all wonderful and of good portions. Atmosphere and service was great.We will return again!

    We had 6 PM reservations and there were 6 of us. I had requested outdoor dining and we were seated on the back patio. The action is all in the front , so our dinner was very quiet since we were alone. Service was quick and our water glasses were kept filled. My Grandson declared his Hawaiian pizza to his liking. The pasta dishes were good. The roasted chicken was a bit dry and the seafood platter, though tasty, seemed small, portion-wise. Our appetites were satisfied, but not amazingly so. Would we go back? Maybe.

    Service was slow on a Friday night - we had to wait 30 minutes between salad and main course. We ordered chicken and fish (the mixed grill), and both were overcooked and dry. I suspect they spent too much time under the heat lamps.

    Everything at Kaiser Grille was solid and we especially loved the ambience here. We ordered a 5 course tasting menu with wine pairings--everything was very good with the exception of the pork chop which was a bit on the dry side. Also, the server was terrific and attentive however, when the food was a bit on the slow side coming out he blamed it on the kitchen which came across as not being too supportive of his teammates. In my book this is a no-no from a service stand point. Otherwise we loved it and would go back next time we're in Palm Springs.

    My husband and I went there for our anniversary, he had the Lobster Ravioli it was all dough and very little lobster, I had the Prime Rib it came overcook. I felt very rush we got our food within 5-8 minutes after ordering. From the bar we ordered a Kettle One and Seven up all you could taste was the 7up and we paid $10.00 for the drink. We are not cheap but if you are going to charge those prices then you should make it a good drink.

    Usually Kaiser Grille is one of our favorite spots. Can usually count on good food, service and you can usually have conversation with those around you. On Saturday night, an obnoxious bachlorette party ruined the entire experience. I wish the restaurant would warn patrons. Too bad. Won't go back for a while.

    My husband and I have been coming to Palm Springs for over 25 years and had never been to The Follies. We had heard that this would be their last season and decided to take in a show and also go for dinner. We picked the Kaiser Grill, it has a great outdoor patio and read good reviews. The service was great, the food was not, we were very disappointed. My husband had pasta and chicken, I had salmon and smashed potatoes. Both our meals were very bland no seasoning, NO TASTE. The bread was awful, rock hard, NO TASTE. We will definitely not return to you restaurant and will not recommend it, as a matter of fact while we were sitting on the patio a potential customer stopped and asked "how was the food"? we said not great.

    We arrived for a reservation on a VERY busy night. Waited only few minutes for the requested table area. Service was amazing considering how busy the restaurant was. Our food was served in a very timely manner, all items ordered were hot and well prepared. We ordered 2 seafood entrees, the crab stuffed shrimp and the scallops, both wonderful. The butternut squash ravioli was very good, the baby back ribs were somewhat of a disappointment, but more a matter of taste than how they were prepared. Is always a pleasure, we especially like that even when very busy you can have a conversation at your table without shouting.

    We ate outside at lunch so it was very quiet. It was not crowded so it was also quiet inside. The food was good. My companion had the Kaiser Ruben and loved it. I had the crabcake salad and enjoyed it, also. In the past I have enjoyed the focaccia bread. This time it was a disappointment. I really needed olive oil for it as it tasted like regular bread, warmed. Good bread but definitely not focaccia.

    We scooted into Kaiser Grille at our reservation time not knowing what to expect, although any grill spelled "grille" is always suspect to us. We had a very pleasant meal and left relaxed & happy. We had theater tickets that put on a tiny bit of time pressure--no problem. Everyone wanted a different wine so we stuck to the not-bad-at-all wine-by-the-glass menu. A few in our group had the generously-sized early bird specials; others chose a la carte items: mahi mahi, kale salad (tasty though oddly paired with a sweet dressing), steak, etc.. Service was attentive but not annoying. Based on this dinner, we would definitely go back.

    Some of the food was excellent, the service was friendly and helpful but my main course - the open steak sandwich (which admittedly I like well-done) was really difficult to cut, even with the provided steak knife so I ended up leaving most of it. My starter, Asian Ribs, by contrast was excellent. So it seems that you need to be lucky in your food choice. We'll probably try their again next time we are in Palm Springs to see if it was a one-off problem.

    We made reservations for a party of fine; when we arrived we were welcomed immediately and seated in a cozy booth. Our cocktails arrived quickly and we had time to relax prior to ordering dinner.Four of us ordered from the Early Bird Menu while the fifth person just ordered an entree. We were all extremely satisfied with our food and even more satisfied with our service. Our server could not have been better: professional, knowledgeable, friendly while not 'wanting to be our friend'. All of were more more than satisfied with our dining experience. If we had one criticism, it would be that the portions were too large. Which is our common complaint about restaurants in Palm Springs as none of us are fond of doggie bags. Highly recommended.

    Kaiser Grill is in a great location on Palm Springs Blvd., the patio on the street is a great place to people watch. It can be noisy, but is tolerable. Patio heaters keep it comfortable. Inside seating is very comfortable, nice bar. The dinner special before 6:00PM is great; a 3 course meal for $19.95. We tried the Salmon and the Pork Chop (party of 2) and both were excellent. Pretty good wine list, not too expensive (as those things go). Friendly, accommodating staff.

    Friends in from Germany. Took to my favorite spot in Palm Springs. Couldn't locate our reservation through Open Table, which was booked over 24 hours ago. But no problem, the delightful hostess didn't miss a beat and we got the outside table I had booked. Less than a minute our waitress was there, we ordered drinks that appeared as quickly as our meal. We couldn't have asked for a better dining experience. Bravo! Kaiser Grille.

    The early dinner special is really a great deal. We lucked out and got a patio table on the outside edge of the patio. My husband and I both had prime rib so that added $4 to the 19.95 special. For $23.95 we had soup or salad, entree, vegetables, potatoes and dessert. I had the wedge salad with ranch since I am not a fan of blue cheese and it was fabulous - chunks of bacon were perfectly cooked. My husband had the lobster bisque soup and enjoyed it. The prime rib was a very generous portion and the potatoes were yummy. We both decided on the raspberry creme brûlée since so many people had said it was really good - it was! I have to admit the mango sorbet was very tempting as well. We'd certainly dine there again if in Palm Springs.

    Made reservations on line and asked for a semi private table. Gentleman who initially assisted us was very hospitable they couldn't find our reservations at first and when they did they could not find the details. He did assure us that he would take care of us and that he would seat us outdoors. The young man he instructed to seat us seemed irritable and reluctant in doing so made the comment I have to seat another party first. I understood they were quite busy but even when he went to seat us his demeanor was far from being hospitable:( Our waitress was wonderful and very hospitable and my husband enjoyed his meal and for the first time I was disappointed in my entrée was very dry and no sauce. I hope to have a better experience next time.
