Our first impression was marred by the host named Mark who quite literally insulted me about my reservation which I made at the last minute. After several minutes of his diatribe we were seated at a table but wanted a booth so the seating hostess accommodated us by having the busser clean a very nice booth. Our server was a genial man named Manny who was very knowledgeable about the menu and food preparation. We requested a steak item for our little one and the chef was kind enough to put a nice chopped steak meal together at our servers request. My child loved it. My peach margarita was very strong so I asked for it to be remade in which was done but I was charged an extra $8.00 which was considerably upsetting. I ordered a very well made Ceasar Salad complete with anchovies which was delightfully delicious. My friend enjoyed a wonderful split pea soup. My entree was a generous 14oz cut of prime rib that wasn't anywhere near 14ozs but was nicely prepared medium rare and very tasty. My friend ordered the fish trip consisting of salmon, mahi and sea bass that he said was flavorful yet the portions were small for the price. Dessert was a lovely caramel apple pie ala mode with vanilla bean ice cream. Three spoons assured we all enjoyed it together. The only thing missing was our beverage refills that never got fulfilled. Otherwise the visit was enjoyable albeit our dreadful experience with the restaurant's host. I would most likely not enjoy returning should Mark, the host interact with me again.

Food was amazing and the waiter we had was outstanding. But they had something going on behind the scene and food was late and some oders were messed up and none of the managers in staff didn’t care about explaining whats going on or just come to the table and apologize for the delay. It kind of ruined our evening.

Wonderful Service and Reception at the Front. We had a larger party with children and they accommodated us and were wonderful to us. I left one of my Granddaughters Birthday Gifts under the table and sure enough they had it at the front desk when I came back the next morning. Thank You Kaiser Grill for Making our Family special day a success.

Location in Palm Springs is ideal for watching the sidewalk and street action. Food preparation could be better. My dinner did not include what was ordered and I waited too long for replacement. A little too pricey as well.

It had been a little while since we had been to Kaiser Grill, however the time seemed to be right...early, season is slowing down, and a good time to enjoy a nice relaxing lunch on our favorite corner of the world! Edson (our waiter...correct spelling!!) was right there to make sure our expectations would be fulfilled and they certainly were.
They offered a wine special for $17/750 ml and we pounced on that great NAPA Chardonnay...nice and buttery, mild oak with good flavors. We'd come back just for that and probably will! The Salmon Salad is my favorite and I was not to be disappointed...cooked just right! My husband had the Pomodoro with marinara and tomatoes, also very good but I would have added a few veggies to make it more interesting.
All in all it was a great way to do lunch in our beautiful Palm Springs and we have a lot of history in this very restaurant too!!!

It had been a few years since we were at Kaiser Grill for dinner, and it has changed quite a bit. The food was fine (we both had different types of steaks which were well seasoned, tender, and cooked perfectly). The service was very good.

But really we felt like we were dining in a upscale expensive Denny's. It is not a gourmet restaurant. Formica tables (no tablecloths), tile floor, very noisy. Very little ambiance. Patio dining was probably better but it was one of those 110 degree days so we chose indoors. And for two of us, the dinner bill came to $185 (that included tip and a $45 bottle of wine).

There are other much better restaurants in this price range (or lower) in Palm Springs (Spencers, Tropicale, Trio, Johnny Costa).

Stopped at Kaiser Grill for an early dinner before a movie. We hadn't been there for sometime and don't know why. The service was great, the menu was expansive and the food, excellent. It's moderately priced and good value. We will certainly be back next time we are in the area. You certainly can't go wrong with this restaurant and I'm certain you'd be happy.

This is my first post because the food was so bad. 4 of us got items off the "specialty" section of the menu, all 4 were awful. My curry was so tasteless i didnt eat it. Nobody had a dinner with flavor, just bland slop. If you really like food, don't go here. The people in the kitchen have no idea how to cook.

Continues to be one of my “go to” restaurants in Palm Springs. However, while the service staff (except for host) is very good and is the main reason we return (especially Carlos and Juan) - the overall cleanliness has gone down while their prices have gone up. In fact, they are now higher than most other local restaurants for lunch. My biggest complaints remains the dirty patio chairs and the filthy menus. I don’t even want to touch the paper menus, they are so dirty. They have laminated a few of the menus, but continue to give out dirty, food stained menus. The menus should be laminated and sanitized after every use - for their staff and customers’ Heath safety.
