 (Palm Springs)·Dined 2 days ago

While the food was very good, the service was dismal. It was a quiet evening and the restaurant was almost empty, yet we were totally ignored. However, I have to say the staff, when approached, was friendly and the manager very apologetic. It was disappointing the service did not improve even after we brought the lack of service to-the managers attention.

My wife did not like the Hanger Steak at all, which was recommended. It came nearly raw and was very tough. I had the lamp chops, which were ok. Good location.

We have been to this restaurant a couple of times in the last 3 months and have been repeatedly disappointed.
The Food is actually really good, but service is horrible.
Our waiter seemed incredibly distracted and out of it.
Took our order and rarely saw him again. Didn't check to see how the food was or if we wanted another cocktail. ( Our order was incorrect, btw)
In addition, we had to ask the person bussing the tables to get our check, As did 2 other tables around us.
Sadly, would not recommend this restaurant.

We always enjoy our time at Kaiser and try to get there a few times a month. Their steak salad is a regular choice of ours and it is always a tasty piece of meat. The restaurant has a great vibe, inside and out. We enjoy sitting outside, enjoying the great Palm Springs weather and watching all the people walk by. It's a great spot for dinner, drinks and people watching. And don't forget the valet parking in the back. The valet is great .... he is a great employee and 100% trustworthy.

We had 8 people in our party and were served during the "Early Bird" hour. We were nervous that we might not make it to our film on time. No worries. We all enjoyed delicious dinners and our servers were prompt and friendly. Very nice restaurant. Thank you, Kaiser Grille.

Awesome experience. Celebrated parents 25th wedding anniversary. Our server, Greg, was very friendly and provided great and efficient service. The team at Kaiser (shoutout to hostess Danielle and manager on duty) made my parents feel very special. The complementary dessert was the cherry on top. Chocolate lava was absolutely delicious. Thank you to Kaiser for a great experience!

A year ago we brought our small wedding party here for dinner. Well, a year later, for our wedding anniversary dinner we decided to come back to celebrate; this time just us two. As always, the service from being greeted, seated, water and bread brought to table, and table server (thanks Jonathan!) - top notch! The food was fantastic and the outdoor seating always brings people watching. We love it here. Always an enjoyable experience. Thanks Kaiser Grille for making us feel sooo special on our first wedding anniversary.

I’m a local and first time visiting. The young woman that seated us was obviously not happy to be working New Year’s Eve. The waiter was prompt and pleasant but the table service was slow and very unprofessional for a high end steak house. Example, appetizers and salad brought at the same time. Main dish arrives by food runner with both hands full yet empty salad plates still in front of us. No option but to clear them ourselves. I have no problem helping out but when you’re paying $40 for a steak or piece of fish you would think you wouldn’t need too. Food was strictly fair with the crab cakes so fishy they were not edible. Will not be back.

Ozzie was a great server. Chairs were plastically and uncomfortable. We had reservations for New Year’s Eve and were taken to our table as soon as we arrived. They handled the busy night well. Food was very good - just a bit overpriced.

Went there for our 40th weddeing anniversary on New Years Eve. Seating outside was awesome (remember this is Palm Springs).I had Pecan Crusted Mahi Mahi (excellent) while my wife enjoyed Lamb Chops (also an excellent choice). Enjoyed watching the people on the street as they wandered by. The staff were very effecient and courteous. Highly recommend this place for dinner.

Not up to par with the Palm Desert location. My friend and I dined at the Kaiser Grille a few nights ago and were surprised at how different the service and the quality of food were compared with the Palm Desert location. It took about 30 minutes for the waiter to come to the table (after I went back to the hostess to ask which of the waiters circling our table was ours) and the food was off at our table, as well as the table next to ours. The good news was that we ended up with a glass of sparking wine at the end of our meal for our wait.

My husband and I went to Kaiser Grill last year and loved it so we decided to go again this year. It was great food and a awesome experience but the service wasn't as good as last year. Our server was okay but not as attentive as we felt he should have been. In fact, I was talking to him about something and he actually walked away to address another table. He said he would be right back but didn't return. I didn't find the service as great as it had been the year previously and was bummed when we were done with dinner. I don't know if we would visit again and this is a great restaurant for food and people watching!

Something to think about: When you find a server is apologizing multiple times, not just to your table, it is time to change your service habits.

There is really nothing much I can say about our lunch. The Chicken Alfredo was bland as the chicken was dry and pasta tasteless. For the $$$ it was not worth it. Better to go across the street to Lulu's where we have always enjoyed the food and lively atmosphere.

This was a most pleasant surprise. As we passed it on our way to the parade, it didn't look very welcoming but once we got there the staff couldn't be nicer and more accommodating. The service was superb, drinks delightful and the food...YUM! The happy hour menu is just as enticing as the regular menu. If you need a quick eat or to get out of the sun and have a cool drink, I highly recommend the Kaiser Grille - Palm Springs.
