    Outstanding experience. The bison entrée, the Rising Sun cocktail, and the corn dessert, individually, are worth it alone. Excellent. Superb service. Beautiful ambiance. A wonderful evening, albeit a pricey one at that.

    we have always enjoyed the excellent food and service. Kai is a special place to celebrate! All the items we enjoyed from each selection! The only mishap was the duck. The accompaniment with duck was delicious unfortunately the duck was tough and very chewy no matter how we sliced it. My main was the bison filet it was superb, tender juicy and flavorful. We want to thank our serving staff, they were friendly, respectful and entertaining! Regards, Mary Seidel and David Erwin

    We had been looking forward to dining at Kai for some time and were happy to be able to make a reservation during our stay at the resort, but we did not realize we would only be able to order the Tasting Menu, which was a 5 course meal and an exorbitant price. We chose to order our own wine and not do the pairings they recommended, but that would have been more expensive. Our meal with wine and full dessert with coffees, along with a before dinner drink, was over $900 with the tip! We did dine for our Anniversary, but said we would not dine there again, even though the service and food was over the top exceptional.

    Exceptional food and amazing experience. A wonderful 5 course meal. The wheat berry mushroom dish was lovely. I also enjoyed the Berkshire pork and the seared duck. I ordered the wine parings to go with the meal and they were a great match. While expensive it is worth having a special night. They do not miss any detail and have wonderful surprises throughout your night.

    A night to remember! I brought my culinarian son here to celebrate his 22nd birthday and the entire experience was beyond top-notch. From the moment we checked in at the host stand to the moment we got in our car to head home, we were both treated as VIPs. My son ordered the tasting menu with wine pairings and I ordered the tasting menu and a cocktail (The Sage is AMAZING!). Every dish was so beautifully plated that it almost hurt to dig into them. The portion sizes were quite generous and we both left the meal so full that we were glad to come home and take our dog for a late-night walk. Jeremy and Taylor were our servers for the evening, and they were both extremely professional, amiable, and knowledgeable. One of my favorite parts of the evening was at the beginning, where we were presented with our menus and given a mini-lesson about the Pima peoples. It's abundantly clear that Chef Anderson is passionate about his craft and about honoring the indigenous cultures he works with to perfect his recipes. This is, hands down, the best meal I've ever eaten in my life. If you're looking for an outstanding experience, I cannot recommend Kai Restaurant enough. Thank you to everyone who made our night so special.

    We tried the tasting menu to celebrate our anniversary. The food was outstanding and they give you good portions, we were stuffed by the end of the evening. The staff was amazing and knew what we needed before we needed it. Feliciano was a wealth of knowledge and did a great job of explaining each dish. I highly recommend Kai for a great evening.

    Food ambiance and service are all incredible. The only thing I didn’t love was the wine pairing. It’s pretty expensive ($135) and you get 5 half glasses of wine from bottles that really aren’t that’s special or valuable. I’m paying nearly $50 per whole glass of wine I don’t want bottles that are roughly $65 retail. The wines were pretty good but not exceptional. I would recommend doing cocktails or ordering wine by the bottle instead

     Fantastic in every way. The food was phenomenal, every single dish carefully made from local ingredients, and the servers where well-versed in each of the stories we were so amazed at how beautifully the local native American culture was woven into each item.  it was a Culinary delight, the wine pairings were pure perfection, and even very unexpected, for instance, there was a local wine from Arizona, that we would’ve never guessed, was from a vineyard in this part of the world  It was an eye-opening experience about the indigenous, grains and foods, a beautiful lesson on culture in history, and the  attentive servers brought every essence of luxury to our table. We will be back again, and again, this is One not to be missed!

    From the moment my wife and I arrived we were treated to the pinnacle of hospitality. From the kind and warm smiles of the hostesses, to the soft spoken and extraordinarily talented bartender, to our infinitely engaging and knowledgeable server (Dylan), the caliber of service and unending pursuit for a pleasant experience knew no bounds. The only rival to the excellence of the service was the cuisine. Chef Drew and our server Dylan crafted and presented, respectively, a beautiful story tastefully showcasing local history and ingredients. The entirety of the meal was filled with artistic expressions and masterful use of flavors and textures to convey the overarching story rooted in the spiritual beliefs of the indigenous peoples in the surrounding areas. All in all, the experience was remarkable and my wife and I will be recommending Kai to anyone and everyone we can to share in the unforgettable time we had.
