Diner Reviews
  • "The menu had the perfect choices for lunch, especially the salads. The wines by the glass choices were extensive and we had no trouble selecting. The environment was great -- shaded, out of the wind and pleasant."

  • "King crab legs are rare in a buffet and a nice feature. The prime rib was better than Lawry's. Dessert bites are a nice touch."

  • "We were pleasantly surprised to see the interior changes at the JW MARRIOTT dining areas. I was a little worried when we sat down but once the salad and then our entrees arrived...it was great. The pork shank was wonderful served with polenta. The salmon was done just right, not dry. I would definitely eat here again and take friends. I just wish they had an apple desert. Not fond of chocolate but love a fruit desert. Coffee was OK but weak. They did bring a shot of espresso to us to make it better. Very nice."

  • "We had a very nice experience at the Rockwood Grill located in the Desert Springs Marriott in Palm Desert. Our lunch was excellent and we both had hamburgers. The heirloom and avocado salad was fabulous and it was served as an included side dish. We also ate their on New Years Eve and the dinner was very good as well. I am happy to recommend the Rockwood Grill."

  • "Not sure the Christmas Buffet is a good judge of this outstanding restaurant. Food excellent. Excellent selection of meats, with prime rib, lamb, ham, chicken, and pork. Excellent seafood. Excellent sushi bar. i thought it was a bit pricey at $69 per person. I would return."

  • "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."

  • "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 was good but prices were outrageous with pizza being the exception. Meat portions were tiny and sides were extra. Wine selection was poor and unbelievably pricey. $11 per glass for wine we see everywhere for 8.99 a bottle. Cheapest bottle $48. Service very slow. And this is their every meal casual restaurant !!"

  • "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."
