 (Orange County)·Dined on May 2, 2017

Kaiser Grill was recommended to us by the Westin Mission Hills in Rancho Mirage, so we decided to give it a try. It was one of the best meals we've had in a long time. Absolutely delicious, from the appetizers down to dessert. The service was also impeccable, with Paige doing a wonderful job, as well as the rest of the staff who assisted us. We even received a phonemail the next day asking how our dining experience had been. Fantastic!!

Sorry to say we were very disappointed with our dinners.four of us had the sunset dinners with the chicken piccata. We have had chicken piccata many times in many restaurants and this was not it! It had a creamy sauce and not the lemony wine sauce it is supposed to have. We went there on our friends recommendation. They had been there for the dinner last year and loved the food. They share our opinion.perhaps the chef was not there!

I really don't think you need the "live music" with the thumping base. We go to restaurants to dine and to be able to have conversations with our guests. The music was very intrusive on Thursday night. It was our first time visiting and sadly we will probably not return. Although our waiter Jesus was very personable, friendly, and empathetic to our "sound issues" we found the food to be average and not worth the prices you were asking.

My wife and I were in town for a get-away and looking for a place for nice dinner. Read some Yelp reviews and selected Kaiser Grille. It was just what we were looking for. Quiet ambience. Excellent food. Friendly but not intrusive servers. And the Apple Tart/Vanilla Bean Ice Cream dessert was a great topper. Next time we are in town, we will be there. Thanks for making it a great night of dining for us.

Late after theater. Near closing time, but all staff were friendly and did not rush us at all. Food quality was good. Only so-so was the ambience. Rather dull and low key given the late (for Palm Desert) hour (9:00!)

Definitely would go back at an earlier and presumably busier time. Prices are typical Desert area overpriced.

We had the Sunset Specials, which exceeded our expectations. The staff at this restaurant was very friendly and attentive and the atmosphere comfortable. The food was outstanding and the fact that we were able to have it at the Sunset Special prices was incredible! My husband had the pork chops, which were delicious he said, as well as the vegetables accompanying them. I had the stuffed sole which was also quite good. Both entrees were very creative. Our salads were both good and the dessert we chose was fantastic: the vanilla Creme Broulee! We really lucked out with exceptional food at incredible prices!

My Wife and I split the Petite Filet and had the Caesar Salad on the side.
Filet was cooked to perfection and the Caesar was great!

I had the best filet of my life (and I've had many)! Quality, preaationand flavor of steak simply could not have been better. My husband agreed. This will be the standard by which all other steak dinners will be judged and I am quite confident none will match until our next visit to Palm Desert. The baked potato also as it should be; perfect flavor, fluffy and no telling sign of having been stashed in a warming drawer for hours. If you want a great steak dinner, forget the usual names. This is your place. Service was great. We will definitely return.

We read all the reviews about the Kaiser Grille before we booked. It was one of the highlights of our trip to Palm Desert to celebrate a belated 40th wedding anniversary. It was the best meal of the trip and lived up to all the positive reviews. My wife had the chicken picatta and I had the crab and shrimp stuffed sole. If there was a negative, the fish could have been stuff and rolled instead of served flat. Otherwise, the food was great. The service was outstanding. Everyone had a smile and was very friendly. We felt very welcomed. There is also live music. Making the night even better was the half-off all wine on Wednesday. You just can't beat that at a top-notch restaurant. If you are anywhere close to Palm Desert, put the Kaiser Grille on your list.

In town for conference and decided to check out this place. To our surprise, half off wine glasses and bottles on Wednesdays! Everything our waiter, Jesus, suggested was excellent. We tried the calamari which wasn't too breaded so excellent. Kale and quinoa salad, sea bass, rib eye were tasty as well. Ended evening with apple tart! Excellent service and recommendations by Jesus R. Would recommend to out of town visitors!

Got a recommendation to go to Kaiser Grill from a local "foody". We had an amazing time. Fantastic service and food. Started with the stuffed bacon wrapped figs which were to die for. My wife had the twin lobster and I had skirt steak. All fantastic. Thanks for a memerable evening.
