Morgan's in the Desert
Exceptional ServiceFrom the moment we were greeted to the moment we left, I was impressed. The service was impeccable and spot on. Friendly and attentive perfection. Everything from the food to the wine was wonderful. Thank you Morgan's for getting every aspect right. Hard to do but you manage and I will definetly be coming back!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful atmosphere, deliciousBeautiful atmosphere, delicious food, loved that the tables were not close together.
Service was attentive but wish he would have explained how big the sides were,
steaks are $38-42 with no sides. We ordered sides, salads and should have been
clued in to the fact that sides should be split. We ended up with an enormous bill,
an enormous amount of extra and a little bit of resentment that we wish our waiter
had educated us (we did ask). Overall very nice Mothers Day though.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic as alwaysWe love Morgan's and always have a great experience. The Porterhouse was outstanding, as were all the sides. The Salmon was perfectly cooked as ordered. They were also so nice to give a personal birthday card and desert for the occasion. Service was great and in no way overbearing. All ages feel welcome and comfortable. We will dine here every time we come to La Quinta.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMvery specialThis is one of those places you remember for years afterward.

Our server was attentive and kept our wine glasses full (seems like a lost art). We were celebrating a special occasion and it was a wonderful experience.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMJust Right...Flatbread pizzas & good wine were just right for us. We grazed on three and sampled terrific wine by the glass choices, especially a great Sonoma Chard and the terrific Trentadue Zin. Wow! A short ribs & red pepper pizza was marvelous, as was the pear with Gorgonzola. We split desert, too. Couldn't resist. Beautiful vibe in the room, romantic setting, easy relaxed atmosphere. Staff was attentive without being over- overbearing. The grounds of the resort are extraordinary, took a lovely walk after dinner. A hotel restaurant with the warmth of a neighborhood place with great food. We loved it!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Desert DiningFrom beginning to end, our evening at Morgan's was extremely enjoyable...Impeccable service, quality cuisine and fine wine, lovely ambiance - everything we were looking for on the occasion of my wife's Birthday!

Our recent experience at Morgan's was no disappointment, only a confirmation of its excellence. Looking forward to next year.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMMorgans is a fantastic placeMorgans is a fantastic place to celebrate any occasion. The food is amazing and the service is excellent. You definitely don't want to miss out on this rare gem.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFlavor with the KidsSat outside for dinner. The 2 year old was restless. He could run about on the lawn with his sister and we could eat a meal reasonably well.
The flavors the chef was serving were unreal. Cauliflower soup good. Artichokes good. Tuna with fennel and pomegranate goooood.
Dessert OK. The signature popcorn icecream deal was tasty, but eh compared to the rest of what was going on.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMHard to believe this was theHard to believe this was the same place where we had such a disastrous experience several weeks ago.The service and food were excellent and thoroughly enjoyed. Morgan's is a great plance to dine! I can't rave enough about the steak. The manager had the right and much appreciated approach to correcting a negative situation.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA star in the desert dining sky!Morgan's offers a fresh take on simple, classic American dishes prepared well.
Offerings include inventive small plates such as grilled rock shrimp or sirloin carpaccio, as well as large plates. While the menu is not large, it includes a nice range of vegetarian, seafood or meat options.
The only item that differs from day-to-day is the soup selection, poured tableside. I had the roasted cauliflower soup with mushrooms - excellent!
Our service team was led by Salvador, who was fantastic!
All in all an exceptional dinner and certainly a venue to which we will return again.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMRomantic getaway find.Angus steak was great but wasn't served on a hot plate. Not up to par on service & details. But overall a great place to eat in La Quinta. The green beans were good, oysters were served with orange sorbet which was different...not to my liking because it made the flavor sour & hid the taste of the oysters. Popcorn ice cream dessert is something everyone should try!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have never been disappointedWe have never been disappointed at Morgans! You can order as little or as much as you
like. The Meyers lemon Romaine salad is so yummy - Caesar salad without the anchovies.
Side dishes are all good - especially like the smokey green beans and spicy fries.
We like to go there for special occasions but if staying at the hotel it would be a first
choice over driving somewhere else.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved the food, everythingWe loved the food, everything was great in the restaurant.. Our service was fantastic.
Although, I noted food allergies on my on line reservation,
and upon talking with our server, it was clear he wasn't informed.
Not sure if that was a restaurant or Open Table's issue.
The bar was a zoo, kids everywhere and scooters on the floor. Maybe the scooters could be left outside
On the sidewalk? I shouldn't have to climb over them.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely environment, food isLovely environment, food is consistently good, live music in the bar adds energy, service is not polished but servers are enthusiastic. Overall, a solid choice for upscale dining in the desert.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been here before andWe have been here before and it never disappoints. Friendly service coupled with high quality food makes this a nice dining experience. We sat outside and enjoyed everything including the red shrimp appetizer, the artichoke heart appetizer, the short ribs and the NY strip steak. A nice wine list is enhanced by a knowledgeable and friendly wine steward.
We really recommend Morgan's!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was prepared perfectly,The food was prepared perfectly, innovative and delicious. I had a filet with au gratin potatoes and mushrooms.

If you are in the area, you really need to experience the beautiful grounds at La Quinta and dine at Morgans in the Desert.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food & service.Excellent food & service. Pianist was a treat.
Steak prepared perfectly. Salmon 'festival' a treat. Only hiccup, fries did not seem home made & not up to par with the rest of the food. Go for the steaks & seafood.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMNight on the TownThe food and service were both up to the standards expected is such a high caliber establishment. Preparation and presentation were top notch. Wine list was adequate and we found a good Californian Cabernet after our selection of a good Bordeaux was not available. Even if they indicated by a mark on the list which wines were no longer available it would have been helpful.
We did not reserve an out door table and were told they were all booked up. There were still open tables 2 hrs after we were seated!
Overall a very nice evening with good friends.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service, food, ambianceThe service, food, ambiance were all great and we had a wonderful evening celebrating my husband's birthday:) We have always been treated very special at Morgans year after year:)3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and service.Excellent food and service.

The food was excellent, I had the Porcini Filet, and the ginger corn. Curtis was very knowledgable and helpful. We sat out on the patio, it was very romantic for my boyfriend and I, the weather was perfect! The overall experience was perfection. The hostess was kind enough to accomodate us early and cancel reservations elsewhere. Not something that would be offered anywhere but at Morgan's. I will definately be back. Kudos Morgan's staff, you're doing a great job!2/27/2013 12:00:00 AMA beautiful location, nicelyA beautiful location, nicely laid out restaurant, though large in size we were seated in a quiet location as requested. The service was outstanding and our server was very friendly and answered all of our questions about the La Quinta resort and its history. Quite informative. The food was nicely prepared and very good, including dessert! Excellent spot for a romantic evening out or a family get together, they seemed to accommodate everyone very well.2/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMorgan's was amazing! We wereMorgan's was amazing! We were a group of 7, including two young and very tired children. They were incredibly accommodating. The food was outstanding as were the cocktails and wine menu! It was a great experience and can't wait to go back!2/24/2013 12:00:00 AMMorgan's is perfection!This was our second visit and was just as amazing as the first. Everything about our dining experience was A+. The Bradshaw martini is delicious yet frightfully strong....don't order too many of these! The Caesar salad was one of the best I've had, the greens so fresh & crisp and the house made dressing was perfectly done. Our steaks were sizzling and flavorful. Unfortunately my husbands NY was overdone but it was replaced quite rapidly with one that was cooked to perfection. The manager came over and gave his apologies and offered a complimentary dessert to make up for it, which we gladly accepted. We requested our server, Kim, again and she was as adorable and wonderful as our first experience and even remembered us. Fantastic dinner!2/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding!!!Everything was absolutely outstanding! The hubs and I celebrated our anniversary here and it was just perfect! We started with the artichoke appetizer, which was delicious. We each had a steak, filet for m and NY for him, and we were both very happy with them. We didn't add any of the crusts they offer and they weren't needed. The steaks were flavorful and cooked to perfection. Our server Kim was delightful and added to our wonderful experience. She even brought us a special dessert to commemorate our anniversary. We will be back again soon, we LOVE this place!1/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have enjoyed dining atWe have enjoyed dining at Morgans before and were not disappointed this visit.
The food is very good and the service is friendly, albeit a bit uneven. Servers should always bring steak sauce to a table when the meal is served, they should not have to be asked. Side dishes should also be brought with the main courses, not a few minutes later.
This is a beautiful spot and we will come back. They just need a little tightening up on the service.12/28/2012 12:00:00 AMImpeccable service and outstandingImpeccable service and outstanding selection of local grown entrees.One of our favorite restaurants in the Coachella Valley.12/13/2012 12:00:00 AMGreat Birthday DinnerFood was simply delicious; ambience was delightful; service was unobtrusive but timely and the staff was quite knowledgable.
