Awesome prime rib and king
Awesome prime rib and king crab legs. Not a huge selection at the. Buffet, but those two items is worth the price of admission alone.

Request outdoor table!
Be sure to request an outdoor table. We didn't and wish we had. The service was superb, as was the food. I also expected the prices to be higher for the quality. During our vacation in Palm Desert, this restaurant was by far our favorite.

The designs very good. The food was fresh and also very good. The placement of this restaurant was not great in that you must walk through a giant hotel lobby to get there. The open floor plan denies the space an intimate feeling, but that being said we were all happy with our dinners and the pricing was very fair.

Food & Service were excellent.
Food & Service were excellent. Birds flying through the outdoor seats and under tables is annoying and takes away from the ambiance.

Wonderful lake views inside
Wonderful lake views inside and out. Love the service and the food! The Burrata Cheese app is great...We had the white fish and 2 had the filet. All good. I like that they offer so many sauces for each item. Had two diners in the party that are very specific with exactly what sauces etc.. could be on the dish or on the side. Server got it all perfect!

Nice place for outdoor dining. Their dinner buffet is a great value and make sure you leave room for the deserts they are something to behold!

Excellent dining in Palm Desert
The Rockwood Grill at the J. W. Marriott Desert Springs did not disappoint on any of our appetizer or entree selections (market salad, wedge salad, halibut, seafood with pasta and chicken paillard and an eggplant side dish). The grilled entrees come with a choice of side sauces (the halibut and the chicken are grilled). We chose the lemon caper butter which was OK but perhaps a bit plain or unimaginative. The dessert (apple tart with cinnamon ice cream) was absolutely stellar! If their other desserts are similarly gourmet, then I would come here for the desserts alone.
Service was outstanding as was the contemporary, open atmosphere. I will definitely return on our next visit to Palm Desert.

Restaurant Clientele Loud
The food here is unusual and very good. The eggplant side, pizza and date torte are excellent. The salmon also very good. However, on a Friday night, the crowd was quite loud and unruly. A large party with kids and very obnoxious adults occupied the back room, making the other three tables ask to be reseated in the middle of their meals. Not the restaurant's fault, but maybe they should have been given a private room for the 15+ people and allowed the other guests to enjoy their dinners. We went for Restaurant Week, and the $38 prix fixe was well worth the price.

My gf and I went here for her birthday. She got the PorkChop which was to die for..I got the Lamb Chops which I think we're touched by god. Overall everything was incredible, also the in house beer is excellent if you are a beer connoisseur. The wine list is also very extensive. Ooh and just a word of advice..try the Calamari.

Great Thanksgiving feast!
I made the reservsation so we would have a guranteed place to eat while on vacation for Thanksgiving. All of our expectations were exceeded - the quality and variety of the food on the buffet and the service and restaurant furnishings were outstanding.

Food and service were terrific on a busy holiday weekend. Front desk was a bit chaotic but then again the place was packed. The outdoor patio is so beautiful it's one of the best views in the desert. Resort prices are expensive but not out of the question. Just a great place to enjoy a brunch with family or friends.
