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.

Food and service great. Unfortunately seated next to a large and obnoxious group of ten and had to move tables.

We had a great dinner at LG's for my husband's 50th birthday. Our waiter was excellent! I forgot his name, but he's tall and bald. Easy to pick out. :-) Everything he recommended was perfect for our group. The food was terrific.

We Were celebrating our wedding anniversary. The service from the initial greeting to goodbye was thoughtfully attentive. Our server made the occasion truly special. The tableside preparation of our Cesar salad was nostalgic. It has been a long time since we have had real Cesar. It brought back fond memories. The entire experience exceeded out expectations!

For the prices charged we expected perfection and LGs fell a bit short. My husband’s 8oz filet wasn’t adequately trimmed so was tough on one side, although the rest of it was delicious. Smaller steaks were served on ridiculously small plates leaving little room for sides. The side dishes and were also hard to manage without spilling off the small dishes. Nothing was included with a steak, everything was an additional charge. I should mention our companions were happy with their meals although all in all it was not memorable. We won’t be going back.

As far as steakhouses go, LG’s is excellent for two reasons. First is the service, which is really as good as it gets, bar none. And second is the steak itself. The new york strip was prepared exactly the way I requested it. Char, medium rare. Very few steakhouses are capable of preparing a steak this way and it was done to absolute perfection. Furthermore it was a larger portion than advertised. Thick, juicy, USDA prime, that was dry aged. Maybe a little pricey, but LG’s has a lot going for it. The only downside was I thought it was a little noisy, which is probably more personal preference on my part. Also the Caesar salad made table side is quite good. It is fun to watch the preparation as well. The dessert was complimentary, because it was my Wife’s Birthday and it too was quite good. Chocolate cake that wasn’t too sweet and very moist, chocolaty. Sooo over all great steakhouse with very little room for improvement in my opinion.

The food was just what you would expect from a steak place. Nothing unusual. The caesar salad was overdressed and not very good. The service, while friendly, was inconsistent. Each course of food came out in stages - everyone was not served at the same time. My recommendation would be to save your money, buy a prime steak at Costco and cook at home.

While we have dined at LG’s previously this was the first time we’ve invited business guests. These were discerning diners from New Orleans, Las Vegas, Charleston and Seattle. One was a wine connoisseur. Let me just say that LG’s did not disappoint. The service was superb, the food was well prepared and everyone had a great time. Everyone cleaned their plates. As for the wine connoisseur he could only marvel at the excellent wine selection and the exceptional pricing. These were people who are used to eating in nice restaurants and who have been to the best steakhouses in the country and all were effusive in their praise of LG’s. My only suggestion might be to perk up the desert selection. However never change the Caesar salad table presentation, and appreciate the service of the experienced waiters on staff. We did. Thank you LG’s!

A gem in La Quinta. Excellent food, great service, beautiful environment. Steak, lamb and salmon outstanding. Very, very good sides so something to appeal to every taste bud.

We had 8 people and they had a round table which I love so that everyone can interact with each other.

Booked dinner at LG's based on reviews. It did not disappoint. The bar is set up in a U shape and had tv's on either side which was great to watch the Sweet 16 games while we had drinks before dinner. Once seated the service was excellent. There were seven us at our table and we all enjoyed our steaks, pork chop, and king crab legs. I would highly recommend LG's and would come back without hesitation.

Our group of six had a variety of experiences. First of all, the service was very good. The staff was very attentive and courteous. The food was mediocre at best. Everyone ordered some type of steak. One was very good (aged porterhouse), one had to be sent back due to being very under cooked, the other 4 just didn’t have a lot of flavor. The side dishes very also very bland.
Overall, we felt the meal was average for a chain restaurant, definitely not the quality we were expecting in what was supposed to be a top notch establishment.

I am a regular when I go to my desert home which is 5 or 6 times a year. LG's is a MUST stop for me and my family and friends. The hostess is always pleasant and the service is ALWAYS good. I have a favorite server and her name is Esmeralda. She was a hostess when I first met her and now she is a server. Very attentive, and helpful with what is new on the menu. That was five years ago and she obviously made a good impression. I like Joe who is also a server there and has been there for years. It is a place where I would send anyone who want a GREAT steak and wonderful drinks.

We made our reservation to celebrate our 44th wedding invitation. We were greeted about our special day at the door, but never got any further recognition.
The food was good but our experience went down when the busboy cleared all our dishes and one of our take home plates with steak, potatoes and cauliflower. The take home plate slipped off the clearing tray and hit the floor and splattered on the Guests next to us. There was no response from management. The bus boy brought us a new potato but no steak or cauliflower. The floor was never cleaned and as we left our take home steak was still under the Guest table.
This along with the lack of follow through on our Anniversary was Very disappointing for such an expensive restaurant.
