A word from TWENTY6
Focusing on the American Classics, a step into Twenty6 is like a step back in time. Reminiscent of an American Classic Grill, this Palm Springs area restaurant upholds its prestige and distinction by serving "real" food, such as a variety of fresh takes on Eggs Benedict for breakfast, BLTs and Hand Formed Burgers for lunch. Try a Filet Oscar for dinner, using the best and freshest product in season. Whether dining for business, romance or with family, Twenty6 provides a memorable experience for all. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Attentive wait staff with outstanding menu choices. Charming atmosphere with large booths and tables suitable for large groups or a quiet table for two. The old Spanish decor of the exterior this facility is very inviting."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "Good for breakfast especially on weekends. Try their bloody mary with or without booz. The salads are always very good too but I haven't ventured too far into the lunch/dinner menu."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "We ate dinner, lunch, and had cocktails and appetizers at the bar over four days at the resort. Twenty6 is definitely our favorite restaurant at La Quinta. Food and service was great every time."

  • "We are crazy about their Eggs Benedict and the Garlic tots!"

  • "I am somewhat jaded when it comes to hotel restraints especially the b/l/d venues. We gad a ZgC from our family so after a spa we went for lunch at Twenty-Six on a Saturday. Very pleasantly surprised. Service was but not overbearing, friendly and glad to see us. We are outside on the spacious patio - casual but civilized. We chose salads, my partner the mandarin with grilled salmon. Vegetables were crisp in a light but flavourful dressing and the salmon grilled perfectly. I had the classic Cobb salad and it was one of the best I have had in a long term. They stick to the traditional ingredients so that the right mix of flavours comes through. A repeat visit is warranted."

  • "Could not have had a better experience. Great way to bring in the new year. I would highly recommend Twenty6 to anyone looking to have a vibrant atmosphere while eating on a beautiful patio."
    Dined on 1/1/2014
  • "Food was perfect. Waiter was very attentive without being intrusive. There was an excellent band playing in the plaza. The evening was exactly what you would picture in a desert vacation. A beautiful night, great friends, perfect food and an inspired ambiance."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Love the LQ Resort so wanted to try one of their restaurants. Ignored for most of the first 30 minutes while MANY employees buzzed around doing a lot of nothing. Waiter was apathetic, food was really good but I felt way over priced."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "We stayed at La Quinta for a conference and ended up eating almost every meal here. Food was good and consistent, and the beer wasn't bad either!"
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "Loved everything about this experience, especially the Lollipop icecream ending to delicious food!"
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "No room for us outside on the patio so four of us ate indoors. Not the greatest inside, wished we were on the patio."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "The ambience is outstanding. To be sitting in the middle of history is an awesome adventure. The area is like a classic old European courtyard that is well cared for. The cobbled drive and walkways project an old world feel. Truly worth a visit for families,groups or just a romantic dinner or brunch. The menu is uncluttered but appeals to all pallets. We will go back."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "Had a great dinner, enjoyed dining outside on a perfect desert evening! Dinner was great, Caesar salad with shrimp was delish as was the spaghetti the hubs ordered and roasted chicken my auntie ordered. The tots are a must have, garlicky and crunchy and so delicious!! We will be back again soon!"
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "Very disappointing Very unsophisticated staff, food was less than tolerable. Smash potatoes were gummy,salmon was smothered in a glaze that did not enhance the delicate flavor of the fish but instead, was like eating a jar of jam. Also the pan gravy for the chicken tasted institutional. The pretzel bread was served warm but stale."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "Had cocktails, lunch and dinner while staying at the resort for a few days. All the food was very good, service was excellent. Cocktails were great! Had a great time at the bar and Victor the bar tender does a great job! Comfort food after a round of golf hits the spot. Outdoor seating with live music, in La Quinta.. really doesn't get too much better."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here. The food was delicious, service great and love the outdoor seating. After a long day watching tennis at the PNB Paribas, it is always nice to come back to the beautiful La Quinta resort and have dinner just a short walk from the hotel room. We will be back next year."

  • "Sunday evening....everything excellent until asked for decaf coffee...startled to be served hastily concocted santa...expected more from a Waldorf Astoria establishment"
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "On the Saturday night it was loud and crowded but we came early and left early. The food was good, not outstanding but fine. For a cafe, it was pretty expensive."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Cool find!! Entire menu is on one page, plus a savory nightly special. Buffalo wings at the bar were big, zingy but not too hot. Beautiful patio. Purple pickled cauliflower appetizer with just the right blend of vinegar and sweet, served in a glass measuring cup was a unique surprise. Waitstaff is friendly, pleasant and fast. Salmon was perfectly cooked. I had the spinach artichoke heart fettuccine topped with huge prawns and was blown away because I'm not a fan of creme sauce and this was tasty, light and broth based, not assassinated by cheese. Killer fluffy peanut butter pie, and fresh coffee topped it off. Gorgeous setting, very "Rita Hayworth" with the smell of orange blossoms. Free valet parking. A new fav."

  • "Our group of four really enjoyed this restaurant. The food was delicious, the service was excellent, and the ambience was romantic and upbeat. We'll be back!"

  • "Another wonderful lunch. My guests from Canada loved it. It's our favorite lunch location. Keep up the good work."
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "Food was great. However, the servers wanted to take away our food before we were done eating. Not once but twice. Gave us the feeling of being rushed out!"

  • "weekday evening...ate outside...delightful...good music, food, service...good value for the money (moderate)"
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "This has become a favorite Sunday spot, for all the usual reasons (food, ambience, etc.) but the service sets Twenty6 apart more than anything else. I hope I've remembered names correctly from fleeting glimpses of name-tags, but Paulette, Juan (?) and Alejandra are real standouts. They take their jobs seriously and obviously know how to connect with their customers. The manager (Eric?) has assembled quite an amazing team and the service is exemplary from start to finish. It takes a lot to impress me in this area (alas, service standards have slipped many places) but this place sets the bar high. (The food is terrific, too!)"
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "Salmon was excellent! Perfectly Prepared! Great service."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "This is a beautiful outdoor lunch spot with excellent service. We thought the prices for food were excessive. Be prepared to pay $18.00 for a burger & fries...cheapest price for not-very-good wine was $11.00 a glass..."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "I've eaten at 26 every time I vacation in La Quinta for both lunch and/or dinner. The food is always delicious and the service is very attentive. I highly recommend their fries as a guilty pleasure! This time I had children with me and they enjoyed being able to sit outside at night, wander around and look at the amazing landscape surrounding the resort and restaurant. I enjoyed the filet for dinner which was prepared perfectly and my daughters ate off the children's menu. One had the spaghetti which was great and my picky eater ordered a grilled cheese which I would not order again. Basically it was just 3 pieces of stacked toast with a tiny bit of cheese. However overall this restaurant is one of my favs and I will continue to come back!"
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "Had reservations, seated quickly, but waited an hour after ordering for food to be delivered. The menu is boring, all the same food you find everywhere else in the desert. The Waldorf needs to update its menu with more fresh vegetables and creative food choices and presentation. The historical hotel setting deserves better attention to what's being served in its restaurants."

  • "My family enjoys venturing over to La Quinta resort from our home in PGA West, but we rarely dine there. We had the opportunity to do so at TWENTY6 twice recently and were extremely pleased with the experience. The casual bar scene and pub fare was fun and the wait staff was outstanding. Attention was paid to every "customer service" detail. We definitely have a new neighborhood hang out!"
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Not what we expected at a Waldorf Astoria resort. Way too casual, noisy....but the food was good. Too casual. More like a golf pub for golfers."
    Dined on 1/9/2014
  • "Service was slow. Food was expensive vs. quality. French onion soup for $10?!?"
    Dined on 1/2/2014
  • "My wife and I had a great time. Food was excellent. My wife was thrilled with the fried chicken. We retired to the bar for after dinner drinks and that made the evening even better. Two managers stopped by our table to check us out. Bryan the bartender is truly entertaining."
    Dined on 1/3/2014
  • "This "on campus" restaurant is good enough to visit even if you are NOT staying at La Quinta Resort. The breakfast/brunch is second to none, not only with quantity as any buffet brunch might have, but the quality! It's all cooked to perfection, especially the cinnamon french toast pudding! OMG! I found the service excessively friendly and eager...and efficient The outdoor seating area is so lovely, and well proportioned. . I loved it!"
