What a great evening. Jeremie, our waiter, told us the story of the restaurant, the Chef and about the native Pima Indian origin of the menu items. Service was outstanding as was the presentation of the items we chose for dinner. The food, almost needless to say, was outstanding as well. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at KAI and will plan to return soon. They are indeed a five star restaurant!

 (Philadelphia)·Dined on September 9, 2017

One of the few best restaurants I've been to in the US (or anywhere)...an experience curated to impress and treat you from start to finish. It started with the complimentary valet parking at the resort's grand entrance and ended with a surprise hand-written thank-you card and gift box with muffins and locally-made jam. But in between was the real magic - incredible cocktails, local southwest native-american "inspired" (more like French with a hint of native-american) food that was both unique, inventive, and amazing. While the dishes are expensive, you don't have to order many to leave full, given the additional amuse-bouche, bread, palette-cleansing sorbet, and desert courses...so overall, the value for the money felt more than fair: a special dining experience that was 'special-occasion' expensive but not astronomical. (They do offer a 14-course tasting menu with wine paring for $375/person, so you could also choose to spend a fortune.) The dining room is spacious, beautiful, and quiet. The service was virtually perfection - courses were timed well, food presented carefully, explanations informative and well rehearsed. It's a relatively formal fine-dining experience that is hard to find these days (for better or worse). Kai is trying hard to impress -- maybe even a little too hard: with menus featuring hand-drawn local artwork, lengthy explanations of local native american food cultivation, and extremely eager-to-please service, some will probably find it over-the-top. But I loved it and would HIGHLY recommend it for people who like fine dining and french-based food with unusual twists.

A true dining experience! One of a kind. The incorporation of the Native American culture, the amazing attentive service and the outstanding preparation and presentation of the food just made it amazing. Thanks to Feliciano for guiding us through everything, from the presentation of the menus (each a work of art) to the truffles at the end. Thanks to Kevin for helping us select an outstanding Arizona wine that was so good with our meal. So many things to write (bread service, bison tenderloin, Guatemalan coffee brewed at the table, aromatics at the end) that I can't do justice to them all. Just go. You will not be disappointed.

We go to a nice restaurant every year for our anniversary. Hands down this was the best experience, best service, and the best food we have enjoyed. The layers of flavors in every dish are truly indescribable. The staff took time to explain every dish by describing the ingredients and the thoughts behind the combination. They answered our questions and offered suggestions when asked. The staff went out of their way to ensure we had a wonderful dinner and a memorable evening.

Absolutely breath-taking meal! Probably the best of my life. Kai is like no dining experience you've ever had. From the impeccable service to the magnificent flavor combinations to the beautiful plating to the unbelievable view (go before sunset!), this is an unparalleled dining experience. You will indulge in foods you've never before heard of, try flavors you can't imagine in your wildest dreams, and be treated like royalty for the entirety of your meal. We didn't want to leave at the end of the meal! Kai will now live at the very top of my "special occasion meal" list. If you're a foodie and you haven't been to Kai, GO. You'll thank me. Trust me.

Our dining experience at Kai was superb. Feliciano was a very knowledgeble, personable, and attentive server. The attention to detail was amazing and the unique flavor combinations in the dishes were interesting and delicious. The wine list was extensive and we enjoyed a delicious Arizona wine. We felt that the prices, while high, were appropriate. The setting was beautiful, and views from our table as the sun was setting were picture postcard perfect. We were served a complimentary chocolate soufflé dessert in celebration of our anniversary, and found water bottles and a complimentary gift in the car as we left. Our dinner at Kai was a perfect way to celebrate a special occasion.

Dinner was more like a culinary and sensory experience than a meal. Food and presentation were sensational.

The service is exceptional... I love the "Russian-style" where everyone is served at the same time. Our waiter Kevin is a true gem and would be reason enough to come back time and time again. He is not only well versed in regards to everything on the menu but also adds a personal touch throughout the entire meal. We cannot say enough wonderful things about the experience or for that matter Kevin!!!!

Kai ......please keep Kevin around for as long as possible please. He is a true asset to your establishment.
