I came with my wife, son and his wife and newborn. We had the steak Oscar, Rib-eye and Chilean Sea Bass. All were cooked to perfection which I find very rare in this day and age. The service was great and the live music was delightful and not intrusive. We will definitely come back.

Very good food and service. My husband didn’t like how his short rib came out so they quickly changed it for him. We were celebrating two birthdays and they had two complimentary desserts for us.

Not an extensive menu, but they did an excellent job on what we ordered. Had steak, ribs, and two different fish entrees, and they were all excellent. Will go again when visiting Palm Desert.

One of our first post-pandemic forays and very pleased. Each of us had a wonderful meal; service was perfect...Dan treated us like guests in his home.

Although the meals were a little more expensive than a year or so ago, the quality was excellent and the portions very generous.

Looking forward to our next visit.

Great service! I was disappointed with my filet mignon, however. It was overcooked and did not have enough flavor.

Food was great!! Manager is terrific. Music was intrusive. Our server left the premises before we did leading to much confusion about the check. The Manager, as usual, did a great job of straightening out the situation. We’ll be back.

We always come to Kaiser Grill whenever we visit Palm Desert! The food is only surpassed by the caring service and the atmosphere of relaxed elegance. The staff is excellent, from the front of house, to the bar tenders, and the servers who make us feel special and welcomed. We would definitely recommend this establishment.

We had a great experience at Kaiser Grill for dinner. We were a table of four & the service was outstanding. This was especially impressive since so many restaurants are short handed as workers stay home & collect unemployment, post quarantine. The food was delicious. My husband had the short ribs which were tender & flavorful. The Mahi-mahi was good, with a yummy curry sauce. To make our time even more enjoyable we had live music. We will definitely be back.

Rib eye ordered as medium and was served medium well+. Filet was ordered medium well and was more on the well side so it was dry. All in all a below average meal for a upscale restaurant that charged $144 for two steaks, one appetizer, a shared wedge salad and mashed potatoes plus one glass of house chardonnay.

Impeccable service and fabulous food. Our party enjoyed the first-rate green bean appetizer. We had the shrimp fettuccine Alfredo, the filet with mashed potatoes, the lobster ravioli and the stuffed sole and everyone walked away extremely happy. We were celebrating a birthday and the staff made the occasion very special. Will definitely return next time we are in Palm Desert!

We had not been to the Kaiser Grill for some time. We remembered the food as being excellent, as well as the service. This was NOT the case last night. The waitress appeared to be poorly trained and/or just a poor waitress (e.g., over pouring the first glass of wine, not bringing an ice bucket, not coming by to refill wine glasses, etc.). I ordered the scallops (the special). I received five small scallops that had absolutely NO taste. No taste at all. The special included a very small salad for $48. My husband ordered the Chilean Seabass and was disappointed with the flavor and consistency. $43 for another unsatisfactory dinner. We will not return to this restaurant. Once was enough.

Went for Mother’s Day. Had reservation for outside. The manager was able to seat us inside. First rate service from our waiter, Dan. There was a small hiccup with the decaf with desert. Dan immediately came and told us that someone had made tea in the coffee pot. Coffee came pretty quickly afterwards. Food was excellent. Didn’t need the steak knives for the ribeye. We enjoyed the lava cake & vanilla ice cream. It had cocoa powder under the ice cream. Nice surprise. Manager and owner came by to ask if we needed anything and thanked us for our patronage. This was our first time at Kaiser. We will definitely be back
