We used to go there often when management was different. Not so friendly now; do not even return phone calls re Festival of Lights. Obviously years of loyalty do not matter . Only thing good now is the filet.

Average all around. Good for everyday dining. Went for lunch, may have different feel at lunchtime. I would try for dinner next time.

God awful. The drinks were undrinkable and the service was the worst I’ve ever encountered in my life. The waiter clearly did not want to be there

Kaiser Grille was very good. The menu is extensive with a choice for everyone. Service was good, attentive but not overbearing. We sat outside on a beautiful November evening and the downtown scene was quite lively. The wine was good, the manhattan was not the best but it was drinkable. We will go back.

Sat at their fire pit table with a group of 8. My steak melted in my mouth. If you don’t order their meat board, you’re crazy! Our server was a lot of fun and super helpful. We scored major points with our customer.

Very bad seating against the back wall even though we had made reservations for a nice evening out. The server was very busy with too many people for one person so we did not get the attention that we expected. So we felt the the price we paid did not reflect the service we got.

Maybe it's my own fault for looking forward to eating chicken piccata all day, but that tough, gnarly chicken is gonna drive me to vegetarianism.

We had reservations for 7pm, Halloween night. The host was bombarded with walk-ins, and he kindly pointed out the table on the patio where he wanted to sit us. And I said, let’s do the table up front, and said ‘yes, let me get that table set for you.’ Meanwhile the table of 3, with a reservation for 7:50 walks in, gets seated before us and sits them at the table he just told me I was getting! #notcool

The host service was dreadful and the waiter was dreadful.
Ps: the men’s bathroom need a renovation.

We visited on Halloween- admittedly a busy night. But did make reservations a week in advance. It took 10 minutes for our waiter to even bring drinks! And another hour before we saw an entree. But we told him we were headed to a Halloween party and needed to be quick so we provided him our credit card to have the check ready by the time we finished our dessert. We waited 20 more minutes and finally had to ask the host to find our waiter, charge our check and be done with it. We live in PS and eat at Kaiser often. Never have I had this level of poor service. It may be a long time before we return.

Our go to spot for many years in downtown Palm Springs. Always consistent food and service. Great location. Ask for a table facing Palm Canyon when weather permits...especially during Village Fest

Highly recommended, especially happy hours. Had a terrific pork chop that was beautifully adorned with cherries and berries. Big portion, had to take it home. Then again, it could have been the delicious pea soup that filled me up! Highly recommended! 😊

I would recommend for the food & view! However, we are repeat visitors from Sydney & first time here. We had drink at bar first but the bartender was not friendly which when you are out at most restaurants in Palm Springs the usual vibe is friendly! Our waitress, although efficient seemed to be using a script while talking to us. Fortunately the food saved the night!’

We took friends to Kaiser as a thank you dinner.
The host was dismissive even though I had a reservation. When I approached him and told him we had a reservation he never made eye contact and told me sternly, “Sir there are six people waiting before you”. After a few minutes he said “It will be quite a wait to seat you” (the dining room and patio were pretty empty). I then told him I had a reservation and he said “that’s fine you should have told me”. As I already had told him, I didn’t bother with a response. The assistant sat us at a bad table (the patio was almost empty) and we asked the waiter to be moved. After we moved, he came back to tell us that the table was reserved for another party and if we stayed we would have to vacate in one hour. We stayed, ordered and ate quickly. The food was ok but overpriced for ok. The vegetables were barely cooked (warm/raw). We had to use a steak knife to cut the carrots.
We have had many enjoyable meals there in the past. Not a good experience this time. I don’t think we’ll return.

I wanted to give Kaiser a higher score but couldn’t find a way. The food was good, not amazing. My medium rare prime rib came out medium well.

Our first time - maybe we got them on an off night.

We are there tonight for probably the 10 th time this year. We generally really like their food so we eat there more than any other resttaurant. Tonight there were four of us and we ordered a starter of nachos for the table and asked if we could have a handful of extra tortilla chips on the side as one of our group had some food allergies and wanted 5 or 6 unadulterated chips. We received the nachos without the 5 chips on the side. We asked another waitress about the missing chips. After maybe 10 minutes our original waitress came out to tell us that the handful of extra chips would be $5.00!!!!! Why the hell did they just tell us up front that 5 extra chips were not available??????
On top of the chips issue, we were attacked by some kind of flying bugs throughout the whole meal they looked like flying beetles and ruined our entire meal!!!

A group of us were there to celebrate a birthday and to take advantage of the Mediterranean special they are running in September. The 7 of us had such an amazing time and the food was FANTASTIC! From the moment we were seated until we stumbled out 2 hours later full and happy the service was above and beyond. The host is always so nice, the servers, busboys and kitchen staff are all very friendly and professional. We live in Palm Springs year round and have been to almost every restaurant in the valley as we don't cook and we do enjoy eating out. We return to Kaiser for special occasions because they are consistently the best place to enjoy a great meal and good times with friends. Kudos to the management for doing such an impressive job year after year. Your staff sets you apart.

We made reservation at the last minute which wasn't a big problem because it is off season but by the end of our meal the place was packed I was very satisfies d with the quality of the food The Ahi appetizer was delicious my beet salad was a little large and overdressed but still tasty and my steak was cooked just the way I asked and packed with flavor.I would recommend the place for any occasion I noticed a Mediteranean special that had an enormous amount of food on the plate might have to try that next time

A quieter table was requested at time of reservation. A party of six obnoxiously loud people were then seated next to us. Their banter was so loud, our waiter was unable to hear us upon taking our order. Management was oblivious. Caveat emptor.
