    The last time we were at Kai, Ryan Swanson was the chef. The experience was simply orgasmic. Last time, we celebrated my wife's birthday. Kai is her favorite restaurant in Arizona. Drew Anderson has made his own mark. The experience was equally delightful but different. Jeremey (head waiter) and his team executed like a synchronized swim team. All the emotional delight of dining at Kai when Ryan was the chef came flooding back but with a new younger Chef. Drew should be proud of the epicurean journey he has created. Delightful. No question... we will be back.

    Great service. Staff very knowledgeable of everything when asked questions. Overall besides the buffalo the meals were more on the bland side. Nothing was very amazing. The mushroom dish had stale items on it, undercooked Farro or cous cous. The foigras was decent. The vegetables bland. Place was extremely cold and I don't get cold easy. I was wearing pants, a long sleeve shirt and shoes and my toes were so cold I had to get up and fake going to the restroom to walk around. Would be better if tables were in the middle of the room for a better view and service came from the outside instead of staring into a corner of a room. Was wanting a binkleys like experience, but regret making the drive.

    First time we've been disappointed here. For one thing, for these prices and "five stars", don't freeze us out. A blanket, although a nice gesture, is ridiculous. Service remains stellar, but the experience wasn't what we've come to expect.

    This is likely the best restaurant in all of Arizona. Plain and simple, it’s outstanding cooking. From the quality of the ingredient (mostly local) to the flavors to the history/ background of Native American immersed experiences. It was fantastic. I have gone to most of the highest rated restaurants in Arizona and Kai without question is the better cuisine. Do not let the fact this Resteraunt sits in a hotel fool you, the food and the service will surely impress. Jeremy Stula (the captain) and his team didn’t slip a beat and enhanced each course along the way. If there is an Arizona restaurant deserving of a Michelin star it’s Kai. Note: it is a pricey meal. Minimally $200/per and worth every penny.

    We went to Kai last year for our anniversary and had such a great experience we decided to return again this year. Feliciano and his team were THE BEST! We felt like celebrities, they took such good care of us. The food is amazing and the service takes it to a whole other level. Thank you Feliciano!

The service coupled with loving plates of wonderful cuisine. Every staff member knew the history, the labor, the process and origin of everything that was served. Never snooty, always humble.

    Very nice restaurant in a beautiful setting. Only complaint was the extremely high fixed price of the meal. On top of that they added "surcharges" to a number of the offerings. Our total bill for the two of us ran to $685 including a nice bottle of wine, tax and tip. Needless to say this was a "once in a lifetime" visit to Kai Restaurant! Recommendation: If money is no object I'd recommend the restaurant, otherwise...

    Amazing, amazing, amazing. I have lost count of the times we have been here. They will work around all your food allergies & make you feel like you are the only guest in the house. Ask for Kevin to be your server, above your average waiter-we have a standing place with him every time we come in. You may think you will not be full by the time you leave but let me assure you, you will be stuffed.

    What an amazing experience! I was skeptical due to the prices, but it was worth every penny. They made every effort to ensure that my husband and I enjoyed our birthday dinner to the fullest. The food and service was fantastic and I highly recommend the braised rabbit and buffalo tenderloin.

    A great and thoroughly delightful experience. Superb service(thank you Jeremy,Leilani, and Asia) with each course memorable, especially the unique cheese presentation. The wine pairings are highly recommended as individual selections for so many unusual (and delicious) flavors would have been impossible for me and I would have missed out on the flavor augmentation that helped make this a memorable meal. I would definitely order the escargot, lobster, and buffalo tenderloin again. The explosively-flavored chocolate and coconut cream with pear ice was to die for. There was nothing served that didn't give me goosebumps as I experienced these flavors. Grazie, Chef Drew. As to price, this was a great value for a meal that I shall remember for years. See you soon.

It was my wife's birthday and I can't imagine a more enjoyable evening. The friendliness, the service, the food and drink, everything was exceptional. No wonder this restaurant is so highly rated.
