since the hostess to Corine our server ...everything was fabulous, the manager was very attentive, the crew was very helpful and, the food was delicious i ordered the dinner special, the chicken was juicy and tasted so good, my husband had the usual the filet mignon and was amazing, we had 2 bottles of the kaiser grille private label merlot and I was astonished with the delicious flavor, since we always order ferrari carano or meiomi but the house wine was very smooth and fruity, not too dry; can't wait for my next visit.

I had heard about the KG for a long time and finally decided to try it. I ordered the prime rib special with scallop potatoes. The prime rib was tough even with their special steak knife. There was a lot of gristle and fat. The flavor was not impressive. The potatoes looked good but were also short on flavor. My wife had the smoked salmon plate and it was also tasteless. But - the service was exceptional. Our server was delightful. The manager came by our table a couple of times but never asked how we liked the food.

We were there to celebrate my husbands birthday, they had us at a round table which is always good when you are a group, had a nice birthday card/greeting on the table, we were never rushed, we were catered to, my husband received a delicious birthday desert, candle and all. It was a great night of good food, good service and would definitely go again and recommend it.

We have been to Palm Desert and many of its finest restaurants many times over the years, but somehow we never had been to Kaiser Grille. It is too bad it took us this long to experience this great restaurant. It is certainly one of the best restaurants we have found in Palm Desert. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The pace of service is perfect and one’s needs are anticipated and met graciously. The ambience is informal and a little noisy; nothing at all offensive.
The menu has a good variety to chose from; there should be no problem finding something you will like. That goes for appetizers, entree’s, sides, desserts. The wine selection is good and reasonably priced.
My wife’s sole was garnished with crab, shrimp and spinach; it was cooked to perfection and was delicious. I had one of the nightly the specials with New England clam chowder (I’m from Boston; the “chowda” was great), 2 small filet medallions with parmesan risotto (excellent) and a trio of desserts (sorbet, creme brulee, chocolate cake). Outstanding.
We will definitely make Kaiser Grille Palm Desert a must-do whenever we visit Palm Desert. Highly recommended. Try it, you’ll like it! Buon appetito!

My filet was perfectly cooked, as was my moms’s ribeye. Both were delicious with great seasoning. Our appetizer, the mussels, came in an amazingly tasty lemongrass curry sauce (I highly recommend dipping your bread into the sauce!). My daughter’s kid’s cheeseburger was a big burger, but also very good. Our side of rice was a bit hard, but didn’t detract much from the rest of the food, which was great. Dessert molten chocolate cake was a perfect end to our dinner. Thanks to Morgan for being an outstanding server.

The room was crowded. There was a piano player in the bar and the singer was good I think but she was inaudible due to the noise level. Unpleasantly noisy.

Food was great. Pleased even Mr & Mrs Picky plus 2 real foodies. Woman server was efficient but catered to Mr Picky even though I was picking up the check. Servers should assume that anyone at the table is paying and treat them all fairly. We will return!

Noisy environment...Had to return steak; ordered medium and received well. Replacement steak was somewhat on the rare side, but at this point with my spouse having eaten 1/3 of her meal, I accepted it. Rather than cut into the middle I chose to cut around the edges which gave me the medium cookness. The decor on the window sill had a wine bottle with half the label torn off. I would think a "high end" restaurant such as Kaiser would replace the bottle. The manager served me a cup of soup because of the steak problem, which was quite nice of him. But.....why is it you do not have soup spoons? The soup was served with a tablespoon utensil.
Was a special event for my wife and I but didn't turn out special at all.

Whenever we come to the desert Kaiser Grille is a must for dinner. Their Lobster Ravioli is divine. The mashed potatoes are so good and we love their bar selection. The servers are always so attentive. This place is low key yet refined.

The service was stellar - prompt and friendly. I had a couple of appetizers for dinner - a cup of cream of asparagus soup, which was amazing. And the crabcake, which was quite large for an appetizer portion. Plenty for a meal! It was a bit too spicy for my taste, but still a very good dish.

Hubby loved his prime rib and my Caeser salad was excellent. He was not too fond of the clam chowder and my macadamian crusted mahi mahi was burned on the bottom and over cooked. Our server was cute and spirited and service was quick.. We's go back again, and avoid the fish products nexttime! :)

We went there for my birthday and were royally treated. However, the place was so noisy it made the whole evening a bit uncomfortable. Also, I had the prime rib special because it was Friday, and I'm sorry to say it had absolutely no flavor. It was the most tasteless prime rib I have ever had. My wife had the rack of barbecued ribs and they were quite good.

This is our first time and it was a wonderful experience. This restaurant is a ‘well-oiled ‘ machine! Everyone is in synch and all runs very smoothly. It was fascinating to watch! Ok. About the service, food, etc. Wonderful!! The manager greeted us; talked to the manager and our waitress, Amber was great! She’s also, adorable! Don’t know when we’ll be back out west, but those of you who are - go to Kaisers!!!!!

The service was excellent. Our waitress told us about the special which was roasted duck. I decided to order the duck and it was excellent. I also ordered a local craft beer which she recommended and it also was very good. My wife ordered their salmon and she loved it.
The atmosphere was nice and quiet and we were placed in a corner booth. I highly recommend this establishment.

The 2-star rating was a little off. Our Ribeye steak and Lamb chops were $44 and $32 respectively but very delicious and cooked to perfection. What made the night memorable for my Mother and I was the attention we got from Brian our waiter and ESPECIALLY Noel, the Manager. Noel was so attentive and sincere regarding our dining experience, my Mother immediately declared Kaiser's was her favourite restaurant of our trip. Well done. We shall be back.

We were shown to a booth right away. Our server, Page, was very sweet and cheerful. She gave us time to relax before ordering and checked in on us without being a pest. The Maitre d’ was pleasant and the servers seemed to like him and each other. The looked like they were having fun while working. The sole and the pork medallions were cooked to perfection, properly portioned and attractively presented. The cocktails were well made and substantial. This dining experience was much better than the same restaurant was a year ago. We will definitely dine here again before returning home.
