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 ordered along with another person in are party the halibut. i'm a sport fisherman from Washington and i live down here in the winter. i told the waiter that if the halibut wasn't fresh i would send it back. when it came the first bite was very dry and no taste what so ever. the other person also sent there's back for the same reason. i'm a pretty good food expert and i can say that it was frozen before, and you could tell it wasn't fresh. anyway at that time everyone else had there food so we just ordered another appetizer and called it good. your food is very good but your halibut was at best very poor. i was surprised that it came from your chiefs actually. thank you john berry p.s. are waiter was the best throughout the entire meal!

    We had a nice evening unfortunately they forgot to bring us our dessert and gave us our check instead so it ended abruptly. The unfortunate part was the server knew that forgot and avoided the table and he someone else deliver it. We've eaten here before and it's a nice evening - crab cakes are awesome.

    L.G.'s is a great steakhouse local to the Palm Springs area. Great food, service and ambiance. Solid wine list. Reasonably priced compared to the high end national chain steakhouses. I had the bone-in rib-eye and it was one of the largest, most flavorful steaks I've ever had. I could eat only half in one sitting.

    We were visiting La Quinta for our anniversary. We made a 715 dinner reservation at LG's for which we arrived early at 645. Although the restaurant was fairly empty, we were told we had to wait at the bar and would be seated closer to our reservation time. It seemed fair enough, so we sat at a bar table, where we ordered a couple of drinks and an appetizer. Service was slow and although the appetizers were not bad, they were ridiculously expensive. We watched as other folks streamed in and were seated promptly. By a quarter to 8 we walked out to go have dinner elsewhere, because it was clear they had no intention to seat us at one of the many empty dinner tables. Next time we want steak in the Desert, we'll go to Mastro's.

    You can still get an honest-to-goodness Caesar salad here, complete with coddled egg and anchovies. That alone would make it worth a visit or two; but then you add to that the prime beef grilled to perfection and I can't think of a reason to stay away.

    What does that review title mean ? You are never disappointed at LG's. Besides the extraordinary taste, service, and choices, SIZE is what matters here. Order a jumbo Shrimp cocktail appetizer and it's two for you and two for the wife. Order " a not to be believed" bone in Rib Eye, char grilled to perfection, to share with your BW [ beautiful wife ] with two small sides, and homeward bound is half the steak for the next nights dinner .Buy some fresh sides,make a salad, pour two glasses of Prosecco and OH ,what a second night. Best steak in the USA in Indian Wells,Ca.and Palm Springs too. ENJOY !

    LG's is our favorite restaurant in the Palm Desert area and it's our "special occasion" go to place. The steaks are top notch but the various side dishes are stellar too. Our favorites are the mac & cheese, deep fried green beans and the wagon wheel onion rings. Make sure you get the table made Caesar salad for two but realize it's easily enough for four people which is what we did. Not for those on a tight budget but well worth the occasional splurge.

    Excellent Local Steakhouse with one of the very best Bone-In Ribeye I have ever eaten. Enough for dinner and some leftover for Steak and Eggs the next Day morning! Up there with the best of them with great food and great staff. My only regrets were I couldn't try the 49'er and there was no room for the mouth watering Apple Pie for dessert.

    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.

    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!"

    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.

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!

    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.
