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.

    Imagine that you could combine your best steak dining experiences in one place. This is it! From the best Caesar salad, to the best half baked potato and side vegetables this place is it. Also don't overlook the available sauces if that is your preference. Someone did their homework here.

    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.

    We have been long time visitors to LG's and a few months ago things just seemed off in the kitchen. We had not been for a month but our dinner on Saturday night was superb. I had a petite filet that was to die for, one of the best I have had at LG's. My wife opted for the more succulent Rib Eye and she said it was perfectly prepared and cooked. Service was excellent, always has been. We often bring our kids and they have been treated with the utmost respect every time.

    Dined on 4/20/2014
    My second or third visit to the various LG's locations throughout the Coachella Valley...never fails to impress. Tableside caesar salad for two was quite possibly the best salad I've ever had! The Gold Strike 49er is a beast of a steak, but it was cooked medium rare to perfection and the roasted garlic melted like butter into the steam when the server opened the flower for me. Sides were all great, but they can't help but play second fiddle to the steaks, which are the stars here! 5 stars across the board...a "must-do" when you're in the valley!

    The Filet M was outstanding as usual with great taste and done to perfection. Choices of appetizers, side dishes and salads were more than adequate and equally tasty. The server was attentive, courteous, and efficient. The restaurant décor is a little outdated but comfortable and has a good vibe. Reservation time was honored to the minute and seating was immediate. The buzz was just right allowing conversation between all guests at our table.

I'm sure other dishes are good but the filet I had was grilled perfectly and was delicious. We''d certainly go to LG's again if we're in the area.

    Food was good, but not $286 good. I think it was extremely over priced. If the food had really "wowed" me then I would understand pricing. But I could have made my own steak just as well or better. Lobster was fishy as well. We were disappointed. We also would have chosen a seat outside had it been an option when I made reservations.

    Good service, the waiter was around quite often for the first half of the meal. He made surprisingly honest suggestions that we mostly followed. Warned us about the lobster tails and talked well about the specials. Wife had his suggested Salmon and loved it. I stuck with my large filet with a side of bearnaise sauce and tried his recommended wine reduction which was a good complement to the steak but I liked the bearnaise better. They offered Lobster Bisque which is one of my favorites. In fact, I like it better than lobster tail. Unfortunately, I was not impressed. Tasted fine but in a restaurant like LG's, I expected better. Kind of like a tomato bisque with lobster pieces. The night was a good experience tho and I would return.

    The New York steak was excellent and cooked perfectly. Our friends split a big Bone In Rib Eye and it came out really too Rare so they had to send it back. Hence when it came back it was too done. The sides, Creamed Spinach and Potatoes Au Gratin, were not up to par with the great steak. We went on one half price wine night and had a great Burgundy for $50.

    We had not been to LG's since they closed palm desert. What a great experience. Our server, Kristen was fun and very knowledgeable. She gave us good service without overdoing it. We brought a great bottle of wine with us that she decanted and ordered another. The steak kabob was excellent. Their Caesar is the very best as is their bread. The New York and the bone in ribeye I was told were great. We were too stuffed for dessert but they looked great. We will be back.

    We have been coming to Palm Springs for a week 5 times over the last 20 years. We have always gone to the LG's in Palm Desert and had great food and experiences. The atmosphere was romantic and conducive to quiet conversation. We were disappointed in the LG's in La Quinta as the noise level almost required us to scream and the food was not as good as it once was. The lettuce in the ceasar salad was not fresh and the steaks were not as flavorful as they once were.

    It was a busy night during the Indian Wells tournament so the place was packed tight. Therefore it was a bit noisy but the food was good. The only thing I did not like was that the food came out too fast. We were done eating before finishing our bottle of wine. Next time I would delay ordering the main course. Thankyou to Hernando for the great service!

    We returned to LG for the Indian Wells tennis tournament with great hopes having dined at the closed one in Rancho Mirage three years earlier. I remember the bone-in ribeye there as being one of the best ever. Unfortunately the La Quinta restaurant disappointed. The spinach salad appetizer tasted like it was from a package, and the low-fat dressing had no flavor. This was followed by a chewy, petite prime filet that had an odd taste. Should have sent it back. My wife sent back her flavorless and overcooked brussels sprouts and was disappointed with her Alaska King Crab legs, which were not sweet. The apple pie dessert was just average. The only thing we liked about the meal was the oversize pours of excellent wines-by-the glass.

    We were disappointed in general. Although we expected a higher priced menu, when we pay that kind of money we expect better ambience. The place was extremely noisy and service although decent, felt indifferent. A steak ordered medium Chicago was sent back because it came blue and cold in the center. The menu is totally a la carte. High priced steakhouses should realize that not everyone wants a huge piece of meat and nothing else with it. It would be nice if they could have some "lighter fare" selections that include a smaller portion (meat) with vegetables for more sensible eating.

    We ate there during the BNP Paribas Indian Wells Tennis Tournament. Lots of tennis fans were there. You could watch some of the match on the TV in the bar from our table. It got a bit noisy during a great match. If one was not at tennis fan it could have been a distraction. We are fans--so not a major problem. It did, however make it hard to have a conversation. As always the meat was superb cooked to perfection and the vegetables and salads delicious with diverse and tasty sauces and seasonings!

    There was confusion as to which waiter was in charge of our table. One waiter said you make Yorkshire pudding in house. The other didn't know what we were talking about when we ordered it with our prime rib, One waiter took our credit card then another waiter came with the bill and asked for our credit card. We did not like sitting in the back room. It felt like we were in an overflow area. I bring my guests there because I like the steaks.
