Stellar 5 star experience. One of the best meals of my life.
The staff at Kai goes all out to ensure you feel pampered. The food is artful, wait staff is knowledgeable and personable. I could have done without a few "is there anything else we can do for you?" though. What I really loved (besides the incredible lobster dish and garden salad) was that our car was pulled up and waiting for us when we exited and supplied with two bottles of water (Voss!) and a last goodie package, just in case we had forgotten about Kai in the three minutes since we left the dining room. Expect your meal to take about 3 hours. And of course all this pampering costs quite a bit.
Our second visit to Kai surpasses our initial experience which is still hard to comprehend. It is a cultural dining journey that carries one into a special state.
This restaurant was one of our favorites and we have traveled all over the world after award winning restaurants!
We have eaten here many times and have never been a bit disappointed....
KAI, The-Best-Thing Arizona will produce in my lifetime.
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.
The food was fantastic. Our server Kevin was great. It was a wonderful experience.
Really delicious and creative cuisine! Outstanding service! Will definitely return! Love this place!
