As always dinner was a totally unique experience fit for a special occasion such as our wedding anniversary. The service was impeccable, the food artfully presented, the wine perfectly matched to each course. Memorable evening, anxious to return in the near future.

Excellent food, small portions, expensive. Wine list was also very expensive, although there were a few reasonably-priced gems.

The service is over-the-top obsequious and pretentious. the handwritten card and honey with two tiny muffins for our breakfast left at our room was a nice gesture, but the muffins could have been full-sized, as they are from other restaurants, for the prices they charge. The note, although nice, was also unnecessary.

The meal felt more like a performance than a fine dining experience. The performance overwhelmed the food. The food is good enough to stand on it's own without every detail being explained of every dish.

Arizona's best restaurant, and comparable to a European 3-star Michelin restaurant. Excellent food, creatively prepared and presented. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Be prepared for the an expensive bill.

impeccable!! Amazing meal Every dish was excellent. We went all out with the "Journey" and wine pairing and it was just spectacular. Our 5 year old was with us and we really appreciated being seated in the wine room. He ate all his mac n cheese and behaved completely- thankfully! Can't wait to come back.

This was our second visit to Kai. Dinner took nearly 3 hours and the service was simply impeccable. The food was superb. If there is a finer restaurant in Arizona I have yet to discover it.

If there were more than 5 stars I would be giving them! We arrived and were greeted immediately. Sent to the very comforting little bar to await our table being prepared. I had a refreshing cocktail accented with clove! We were promptly taken to our table and met our server/servers. We did the 13 course Journey and I suggest everyone do it for your first time so you can try it all. Yes, it was pricey. But as far as the menu as a whole we found the prices to be quite reasonable for such a nice place. Our favorites surprised us as they were the pumpkin squash soup, the escargot and the Lamb. But really everything tasted amazing and it was so nice having such polite servers, their knowledge of the food and the history of the natives was fascinating. This was so much more than just going out to dinner. It truly was a romantic, exciting, educational experience that my husband and I will never forget! We will most definitely be back. And would like to thank the whole staff for making it so much fun and interesting for us.

Probably a little too "foody" and froufrou for our tastes but nonetheless very nice. The food was gorgeously presented and every bite was different. But I'm afraid we're probably a little more the Streak 44 kinda people. The display (sorry, no spoiler) after the meal was actually one of the highlights. Free valet service had the car ready to go when we left and the little gift in the car was a nice touch.

The Kai is my favorite dining experience. From the hand painted water colors that grace the menu covers to the retelling of the Pima beliefs they represent- each moment feels like a gift graciously bestowed. I fully relax and emerge myself in the rituals from the sorbet to the steaming herbal aromatics.

The food never disappoints and Kevin is my favorite waiter.
