A word from LG's Prime Steakhouse - La Quinta
Why do we call ourselves LG's Prime Steakhouse? Quite simply because PRIME is the very best by any standard. Prime steaks have the necessary marbling that imparts a unique combination of taste and texture which defines the ultimate steak eating experience. Owner Gail Greenberg presides over every detail to ensure that quality and service will exceed expectations. Serving only USDA prime beef, dry aged on the premises. Highlights from the menu include the "Jewel in the Crown" our 24 oz dry aged porterhouse, the enormous 32oz bone in ribeye, 4 and 8 bone colorado rack of lamb and fresh seafood. Winner of Zagats "best steak in town" award and a permanent fixture on Tom Horan's top ten list.

    I had dinner there for my birthday. It's was a nice restaurant low lit not to loud perfect for a special occasion. The service was excellent, the only problem I have was with the lobster, it was a bit tough and chewy. The steak melted in my mouth, it was one of the best I've had. The onion rings n soup was amazingly delicious too, but if I were to go back I would avoid the $70 steak and lobster plate.

    I've been eating at LG's for 19 years. It's great, and I always request one of Freddie's tables. Previously i ate at PD LD's but when it closed, I started going to La Quinta LG's. Still would have preferred PD location, more intimate setting.

    We had an 8:30 reservation, but they were very hospitable when we arrived at 8, and they immediately showed us to a wonderfully located booth. The caesar salad was made at the table, a rare experience these days, and it was outstanding. The filet was perfect and although it is sometimes difficult to differentiate steak house offerings, this steak was at the top. And LG's offered rack of lamb, and it was a wonderful selection. I look forward to my next visit.

    We arrived to LG's with an expectation of the restaurant to be upscale and conservative. We had wonderful experience for my husbands birthday. We were presented with a card from LG's which made it very special. Waiting staff was beyond exceptional. I can't say enough about the staff's customer service. My husband and I are pretty big on customer service and we both stated that the customer service was great. The food came out in a timely manner. Definitely coming back.

    My wife and and I had a wonderful meal! However, I was very disappointed in your wine list! Although very extensive in length, it was totally restricted in variety (unless you are a Californian wine junkie!) I understand this is California, but really?? There are so many good wines from all over the world, especially in Europe. Like you didn't offer one Chianti? or Beaujolais Villages? unbelievable! ... one of these would complimented the overwhelmingly delicious, mouth watering prime steak!!!

    LG's will always be one of our Favorite Restaurants in the desert area! Staff is personable, food is outstanding and the portions are large enough to have left-overs to enjoy for lunch/dinner the next day. It is pricey, but you "get what you pay for!" We always recommend LG's to any visitors heading to the Palm Springs area!

    Another wonderful dinner--we always do the table-side Caesar with martinis, then move to steak and a few sides with a red wine... One of our absolute favorite places. Service is fantastic, food is delicious, wine list is great--always a treat.

    First time back in 10 years and LG's is just as good as it was back then. Service was a little slow given it was a Monday night but it allowed us to take our time and enjoy the relative emptiness of the restaurant (and each other!). A couple drinks followed by the bone-in ribeye for me and filet the for the misses and we were in prime-red-meat-heaven :) Don't miss LG's when you're in the desert! You'll be sorry.

    This just wasn't a good meal on the 4th of July. Not everyone at steak, so the non meat eaters ordered fish which was not fresh, over cooked, and the waiter admitted it wasn't fresh. How can you open a restaurant with non-fresh ingredients? If you can keep the items fresh, then don't carry them, or close in the off season.

    My husband and I were disappointed in this place. We went for our anniversary on a Wed night. Wed are supposed to be 1/2 off which I thought was a nice bonus. So after being seated and presented with the wine menu I mentioned the 1/2 off and they're like, oh! let me get you the 'special' wine menu. It seems they greatly inflate the prices of the wine on the 'special' menu. Not good. The menu is a la carte, so if I'm paying $8 for a baked potato I want it to be good. Hot. A nice presentation? We got none of that. An extra charge for bacon. Errr. The bone-in rib eye was a monster but had to be sent back because it was still mooing a little. The bone-in new york was just a disappointment all the way around. Kind of like our whole experience.

And the mud pie! One of my favorite places, with the added bonus of an excellent, steak-friendly wine list.

    The food is exquisite. The attention and service we received from the waiter is superb. I have been at LGs on four different occasion and every time I am greeted by pleasant & polite staff and I have received great service. On three of our four visits we have received service from the same waiter who has done an extraordinary job. The food is somewhat price but very well worth it! LG's is my go to restaurant when I want to eat steaks.

    It was a slow Saturday night at LGs. I asked for a quiet table during reservation. We were seated in the middle of the dining room while cozy booths went unoccupied. I asked to speak to manager and spoke to LG grandson. Completely unhelpful, uninterested in my concerns. Needs a lesson or two in customer service. Grandpa must be turning in his grave. Waiters were very pushy and intrusive. At one point he just stood at our table while those at our table were deep in discussion...."just waiting for u to finish talking so I can tell u about our specials" he said rudely. Are u kidding me?? A porterhouse and a ribeye steak were tough and mediocre. The kabobs were average. We left promptly due to the impatient service. $300 wasted.

    Our first visit to LGs. As a part time resident of the desert, we saw their ads numerous times. It was our 35th wedding anniversary and we wanted somewhere special and liked the sound of a local gem. The experience was everything they said about themselves. The Caesar salad prepared tableside was awesome. The steaks to die for. Service was impeccable. Thanks LG! You made it a celebration to remember.

    It's not the LG's of several years ago, that's for sure. I had a rib-eye steak for my birthday. I asked for a piece toward the end (which has the fattier cap) - got exactly the opposite. I asked for medium rare, got medium- to medium-well throughout. So much for that. I can still recommend the Caesar Salad for 2 - it's still a good production and authentic Caesar. Service was erratic, which was surprising since it was a Sunday night and the place was only half full. Waaaay too much time to order; between courses, etc. I really want to support local restaurants like LG's when I'm in the desert (as opposed to Mastro's, Morton's, Ruth's Chris which I can go to anywhere). But this is probably the last time at LG's.
