We were celebrating our Anniversary. The service, food and atmosphere was wonderful. We always have a great dining experience at Kai. The menu changes regularly with so many surprises and difficult choices as all look so good. Definitely recommended!
We appreciated learning how each of the courses included the American Indian flair. Food quality and presentation were excellent.
High class restaurant! Very unique dining experience which you have to experience in person. Service is superb and food very good. Be prepared to spend a very long time and have deep pockets.
We did the Short Story with wine...$250 per person. I have never spent that kind of money on a meal in my life, though I have done some very fine restaurants. It was worth every penny. The wine option really added to the experience because there was a different wine with every course. They discourage cameras so I wasn't able to capture these incredible 7 courses and my vocabulary won't let me do justice to the experience. We plan on making this an annual experience!
Excellent experience as always. Pricey, but the food was outstanding, the pairings intelligent (and generous!),the service practiced (if a bit obsequious), and many things were included in the price that most Restos charge for, eg limitless Voss sparkling water, after dinner coffee service (espresso, cappuccino, pour-over coffee), Voss water and a box of bonbons waiting in our car, valet parking.
All-in-all, a 5 Star effort! We have never been disappointed at Kai, and will return, should the gods smile on us!
We have traveled all over the world, and this is our favorite restaurant!! The food is so delicious, the service is outstanding, and the ambiance is wonderful! We feel fortunate to have a restaurant of this level near our home in Chandler! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
We did the larger tasting menu, and loved it! A very unique experience. The service was phenomenal. We will most definitely return in the future.
Unbelievable! The staff, the food, the journey.... was worth every penny.
The food was delicious and we loved learning about the culture and local cuisine of the native people. It was certainly an unforgettable dining experience.
I cannot give enough accolades for our waiter Kevin and his team. His attentiveness, knowledge and personality is so enjoyable. He highly recommended our dishes and he was spot on; they were scrumptious! We love everything about this establishment.
Terrific food, excellent fine dining experience.
My husband and I absolutely enjoy dining at Kai . It's a dining experience from the moment you arrive . Each dish is prepared as a piece of artwork to delight your every tastebud. The personal service is five star. We always look forward to Our Kai date nights .
We loved all the Kevin’s that helped us even the one named Robert! We had an awesome dining EXPERIENCE!!!!
The entire experience was truly exceptional. All of my senses were engaged, the food was spectacular, and the service was exemplary. I will go out of my way to return.
Our meals were disappointing. The fish cheeks were over cooked. The Buffalo was way too spicy, even though diner was told it was not. The lamb was not tender, and the sauce overpowered it. The noise level was higher than expected.
Service was impeccable and wine list was outstanding. But because of food overall experience was disappointing.
By far, one of the most pleasurable culinary experiences of my life. HIGHLY recommend!
The restaurant is amazing! A truly great dinning experience. At the very top of our list of favorite eating establishments. We loved everything about our time at Kai.
Decided to take my girlfriend here for her birthday. Right decision x1000. The service from beginning to end was impeccable. The food was tastefully creative and as artsy as you can get on a plate. I definitely recommend dining here for any occasion
Loved the short story. My boyfriend only ordered entree and received additional small plates throughout.
Great dinner and the escargot appetizer was best bite ever!
Innovative, fun place to dine. Beautiful artwork, great view of the sunset over the mountain. Food is creative and the wine list very nice. While some of the food was not to our individual taste (I couldn't get my arms or taste buds around what we are jokingly called meat brule which was on the bison trio platter) we really enjoyed some of the other items, especially the pumpkin squash soup. Everything was beautifully presented.
Kai was an overall amazing experience. From the moment you sit down you are surrounded by local art and the servers give you an education about the property, the decor and the style of cooking. This all happens before you even look at the menu. The food was amazing, the flavors were incredible. One of the best dining experiences of my life. Kai is very pricey, but you can't put a price tag on an amazing experience!
Fabulous food with a great support staff. The food presentations were creative and added to the enjoyment of the meal.
Always the best food I have ever had and never knew I wanted!
We have the most incredible dining experience at Kai last night. The entire team put out impeccable service and the food was inventive and delicious. This will be a hard one to beat!
Fine dining at its best! Food expertly prepared, presented and each bite a treasure to taste. Awesome evening with informative history about Pima and Maricopa history which accompanied each course. Dining at Kai is a memorable occasion.
Amazing experience. Food and service way over the top. Pricey but actually worth it.
Culinary tourism: a cultural and anthropological tasting journey. Well done!!!
I have eaten at most every great restaurant in this country, every celebrity chef place, blah blah. This is the best, most creative food I have ever eaten. Twice now, 4 years apart, two of the best meals I've ever had.
The initial intro may feel a bit indulgent (pompous?) but really it's part of the experience. Everyone on the service team knows the food and can answer any question.
I cannot rec'd this experience higher. Amazing.
There aren't the words to describe the experience that is known as Kai. This is a must try for anyone looking for a high end quality & service! The staff did everything they could to make it an experience I will never forget!Do not pass up if you get the chance!
Great experience for the 2 of us celebrating our engagement. Outstanding dining experience & service, great view of the sunset, and creative food options. Definitely a memorable experience with my fiancee.
Went here hoping for a great southwest foodie experience and they did not disappoint! Great service, beautiful setting and a wonderful meal. Waiter explained all the local ingredients and how native american tribes have grown and harvested these for centuries as part of their diet. Really nice native american music quietly playing in backround is very zen as are the various paintings that adorn the walls. Overall a really nice night for both of us. Oh and for you foodies that need a cheesesteak after your meal to fill up, that didn't happen here...we were stuffed! Go and enjoy!!!
Expect more than a meal at Kai....expect an experience. The food and service were fantastic, but the little extras are what make Kai truly amazing. The amuse bouche, the little treats at the end, the delightful Arizona rain bowl, the view, etc.
Jackson was our primary server, but there was a crew of several individuals helping execute this amazing dining experience. If you appreciate delicious food artfully prepared with care and skill, you will love Kai.
My mother and I had dinner at Kai as part our annual tradition to go to a very nice meal for her birthday. This was the best restaurant so far. We ordered the full journey tasting menu and it was just that, a journey. It took us a little over 3 hours to get through all of the courses, but every minute was amazing. The food was top-notch and they took advantage of your sense of smell in unique ways as well which was very fun. I don't want to go into too much detail as I think the discovery was part of the experience. Suffice to say I was not disappointed in one course. But what really makes the cost worth it was the service. I have never been treated so well in an establishment in all my life. They treated my mother like a queen on her birthday, I could not have asked for more. 10/10 would recommend for a special occasion.
Food was good, tended to use alot of bread in,apps to extend, would have been better without filler. Service was good, had to pour my wine twice, no big deal but they are supposed to do it. And with the prices they charge no excuse. I have dined at the French Laundry in Oakville, ca. KAI is not close at all, best to go in with moderate expectations and hopefully be surprised. It was a very pleasant experience.
The service at this restaurant is its most outstanding feature. The food is very creative, being locally sourced, and the chef combines attractive presentation with interesting ingredients and tastes. The staff asked for feedback on the courses, and brought us two different desserts after we expressed a lack of enthusiasm about the first effort. It is a dining experience, so prepare to relax and enjoy.
Kai is my favorite restaurant. Try to go at least once a year. Everything about the experience is special and unique. The food is exquisite and so is the service.
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Kai. The food was almost too beautiful to eat. Delicious as well and unusual presentations.
The service was superb. I have already recommended it to other friends.
