Kaiser Grille Palm Desert Ratings and Reviews
I came here on a date with my husband. It was a Sunday night and the restaurant was pretty empty. Maybe only three couples. We ordered a Capri say salad for an appetizer. It was OK. There could've been more pesto and balsamic drizzled on top. The basil used was also a sweet basil, which did not complement the salad. We ordered the ribs and the mahi-mahi. I would not get the mahi-mahi again. It was not flavorful and dry. The ribs were pretty good, fall off the bone and flavorful. The coleslaw served with it was good. The best food item actually was the bread--perfectly baked and with a delicious olive tapenade to spread on top. The waitress was very friendly. We also used yelp to get 10% off our entrees and 7% cash back.
We visit Palm Desert every year for only a week and we always plan a dinner at Kaiser Grille. The food is great on the Early Bird dinner menu - and such a value. Also, on Wednesdays, wine is 1/2 price, by the glass, I believe, and definitely by the bottle. So fun to purchase a wine we’d not otherwise be able to enjoy. We love this place!
This was one of the worst dining experiences I have ever had. We were seated in an area toward the "rear" of the restaurant. There was a group of twenty people including several children seated in the same area that was so loud and obnoxious we could not even hear what our server was saying. In addition some of the children were running around the area and playing loudly. This went on from the time we entered the area for nearly an hour before I complained (see below) A gentleman who we assumed was the manager came into the area several times but did nothing nor did he even speak to us until I walked around to the front desk and complained. They then finally moved us out of the area but dinner was totally ruined. Interesting there was another table of six or eight people in the same area and they were offered drinks etc. by there server because of the miserable situation. Additionally I received a call a couple of days later from the restaurant and I told them how upset we were and the lady who called said that the manager would call me later that day or the next day. Still no call!
The food was good, but only one selection seemed excellent (the pork chop). Everything was expensive, and ala carte, making it worse. One of our group ordered only a salad. One person who ordered chicken alfredo, I think, said it was too peppery. I won't go back.
Four of us had dinner at Kaiser Grille tonight. We contacted them when we made our reservation to see if they could accommodate a special medical dietary issue. They were very accommodating. The day of our reservation they called us to confirm and acknowledged that the reservation was note with regards to the dietary request. Our server was Page tonight. She was already alerted to our special request before we even mentioned it and was wonderfully attentive to us all the entire evening. You can tell that this restaurant is managed and run very well. Both the food and the service were great!
Very disappointed. They sat us at a table then said that we have to move to another table. When the food came the potatoes were cold. The filet that I ordered was not very warm and overdone. My wife's rack of lamb also came overdone. Did not send it back as we did want to wait any longer to eat.
They did discount the meal and gave us a gift card for the a future visit. There should have been no charge. The owner called the next day to apologize. Not sure if we would return. Was very overpriced for the quality.
Great environment, great service, great choices!
We were so pleasantly surprised to have the experience of creatively tended dishes with an emphasis on natural food sources.
An extensive wine list drawing from diverse vineyards.
Service was superb and the live music was most agreeable.....always a plus when digesting delicious food!
Overall thoroughly recommended.....and we'll be back for sure.
Love the manager and our server. Manager makes you feel like a special patron and so did our server. Bub staff never brought what we asked for or signal the server. Will definitely go back. May become our new favorite place for prime rib after the demise of Cactus Jack's, Indio.
Sometimes I forget how great the food is at Kaiser Grille because we come for Happy Hour so often, have great bar snacks and awesome cocktails, and watch sports and talk with the staff and other patrons. Tonight we had a a special dinner for my birthday in the dining room, and we were blown away. What great food. My wife had the salmon with dill sauce, perfectly cooked, succulent, with Brussel sprouts hash with truffle oil - to die for. I had the lobster ravioli with saffron sauce, with sun dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, and two beautiful prawns. OMG. Kaiser Grille is a sure thing when in Palm Desert on the 111 corridor. I am not just saying it because we love the place. But we do. The staff is amazing, friendly and efficient. The food is killer.
Always a dinner date when we come to Palm Desert .... especially for the delicious Caun Blackened Prime Rib. Wonderful service by Brian and good to talk with Noel. You are always allowed to relax and take your time here. Making dinner a relaxing evening out.
On the whole, it is a laughable place with the worst food in the desert. They couldn't even make a passable Caesar salad. The special was a horrible piece of steak and a way overdone piece of lobster. So bad that we didn't even stay for the free desert.
After waiting 30-40 minutes for our food the manager comes out and tells us that the prime rib was 'done'. Wouldn't they have known well before that? They then offered another steak and then they magically served it to us with the rest of the food in 2 minutes. How did they cook a steak in 2 minutes? I think they knew they screwed up on the prime rib and made the steak they knew they were going to serve. The next issue was when we all got our food the mashed potatoes and vegetables were cold. It was just a very unusual night and I just wished they would have been more transparent sooner instead of hiding their error.
