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.

  • The service was fine, waiter
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 2/14/2010
    The service was fine, waiter and staff were attentive and professional. For dinner, I had the surf and turf with the 14 oz filet mignon and lobster tail. The meat was cooked as ordered; medium rare. I could barely cut it with the steak knife it was so tough. The piece I was served had the nerve of the tenderloin going through the middle of it. The lobster tail was tough and dry.

    Even with giving the wait staff leeway as it was a holiday evening (Valentine's Day), the service started out so-so and degraded to abysmal by the end of what was a very long dining experience. The food was overpriced and average given the price point. This is not the first time we've had a bad experience here, but it will be the last time we dine here.

    When we complained to the waiter that my husband's T-bone steak was overcooked (he had ordered medium rare), the waiter told us it was "just the light from the window" and made no effort to remedy the situation. I ordered the New York cut and it was heavy with fat and grisle. We decided not to complain further because of the waiter's indifference. It was also Valentine's Day and we were just not in the mood to argue with waiters and managers. We took both steaks home where we could see them under good light. The T-bone was cooked well done and the New York was the worst cut of that piece that I recall seeing. For a "prime" steakhouse, the beef part of our meal was poor.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 2/13/2010
    I made a reservation weeks before and when I got there I still had to wait 20 minutes. Then I was given the worse table in the place, right next to a door. I ask if I could have the booth the was open but was denied. I ordered a beer and when I arrived it was a quarter head. In a high quality restaurant a waiter should not bring out a glass of beer that has been pored wrong. Also a finished bottle of wine from the previous guess was left next the table for the entire meal. This wasn't my first time at LG's but it may be my last.

    As always, the food was fantastic. The service was a little slow. I think it took over 20 minutes to get our drinks once we sat down and our food order wasn't taken until we were 25 minutes into our seats. Other than that, everything was fine.

  • For a restaurant that touts
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008VIP
    Dined on 2/13/2010
    For a restaurant that touts themselves as being in the Top Ten in the US, I was disappointed. We were seated in the main dining room, which was next to the (sports) bar. Very loud blowhards yelled into us all night long. It must have been so bad, that even the server couldn't hear our order correctly. They brought my mother-in-law the wrong steak and it took 20 minutes to get her order (which completely fouled up our dinner for 3 ambiance as we were left to eat our steaks separately). There was no recognition of such an egregious faux pas by the staff. I decided not to mimic the loud neighbors by complaining, it shouldn't have been necessary. Instead, I simply seethed. I don't expect that at Peter Luger's, so I'm not sure why it's ok here.

    I usually rate 5 stars for my dining experience here. However this occasion was not on par. It took almost 20 minutes to have a waiter come to the table and the seating by the kitchen was terrible. Had to request another table, which was better located, and still noticed, even with reservations there were several vacant tables. We did not feel it this visit.

    We dine here often and this time we just had poor service compaired to the tables on both sides of us. It was nice to see others getting great service, we hardly saw our server and he didn't even go over dinner specials of the night with us prior to taking our order. Other tables were offered Crab which I would have ordered if I knew they were offered at the time.

    This was our second visit to LG's and the first trip to the La Quinta location. No disappointments - the petite filet was cooked to perfection and melted in our mouths. Service was wonderful. We shared a salad and a baked potato and we were both stuffed! No room for the inviting desserts! LG's is pricey - but for special occasions, well worth it! We plan to return next year for another wonderful evening!

  • LG's is a landmark restaurant
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 1/23/2010
    LG's is a landmark restaurant and is reminiscent of the old east coast steak houses-- meaning big ole chunks of beef and oversized sides. Our meal was good, but not great. The price is pretty much over the top especially in todays "new world", but we knew that going in. Somehow the food and service did not balance with the price so it left us a bit flat. They pushed the bone in ribeye, but this did not live up to the hype. Overall this is a nice place, big and impressive, but needs a little something.

    Out of our party of 3, 2 people said their steak was good and one that it was awful, tough and tasteless. Service was "OK" but nothing special. The food is grossly overly priced considering the quality of the food and service. The wine list is fair but actually not as unreasonably priced as the food,

    This was our first visit to LG's. Compared to other steak houses in the Palm Springs area LG's does not offer the quality and value of let's say the Chop House or the Falls. The prices are all al a carte and frankly the bill adds up pretty quickly. The total dinner price is likely 20-30% higher than comparable restaurants. It is not worth this upcharge. Seems like they are going after the visitor/vacationer and not the local residents like us. My prime rib was average. We will not be returning.

    My steak was cooked perfectly and was excellent. However, my husband's steak was overcooked and just not that good. The appetizer that we ordered (Ahi) was only OK. The side dishes were not that great. The green beans had a very strange seasoning to them and the potatoes with onion was just OK. Service was very good, but couldn't make up for the not so great food. Next time I would go to Ruth's Chris.

    LG's always is top notch! Love this place, been going for years to the Palm Desert location. We have a place in LaQuinta now so we are thrilled there's an LG's there also. Never misses with the best steaks ever! Joe the head waiter from Palm Desert was at our service and he is fabulous. Our party was pleased at the Prix Fixe menu, smaller portions for the ladies. The men of course went for the larger cuts like Bone in Ribeye. My Petit Filet was like butter.. yummm. Service was timely and attentive to all our special requests.
