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.

Terrific service and attentive staff. Food was exactly what I had hoped for. Filet was perfect and side dishes (mashed potatoes and brussell sprouts) went well with the meal. Quiet, romantic, perfect.

Went for our anniversary and were so pleased - especially that we could hear and talk to each other! Our waiter was so friendly and all the staff were very attentive - always filling water & hubby's diet coke. Enjoyed a wonderful creative martini - can't remember the name but it had orange and ginger in it. Tried out a "dry aged" steak - seasoned & cooked perfectly. Hubby enjoyed the prime rib. Sides are ordered a la carte, but can serve more than one person. Overall. a fabulous experience - Wish we had an LG closer to home.

It would have been nice to have a larger dish so you can put side orders on the same plate. Also along with the larger size plate to have it not as hot. (The smaller splatters on your clothes. )
My wife likes to have her mashed potatoes on the same plate. It takes up the juices.
Other than that all was very good.

LG's exceeded all expectations. We had roasted beet salads and they were fresh and crisp. Both had filet mignon and it was cooked to perfection and served sizzling hot. The baked potatoes were large and had ample toppings. My husband was served a Birthday desert and it was beautiful. Service was impeccable. Excellent wine list and good bar drinks. This will be the only place i go for steak!

The La Quinta LG’s Restaurant has probably the best service I have experienced anywhere outside of France. The prime rib was astounding as was the lamb and filet mignon which our table enjoyed. Side dishes and desserts also amazing. Highly recommended.

The Caesar Salad and Oysters Rockefeller are to die for. I wondered why I didn't just order more appetizers and skip dinner. Then the steak arrived. Excellent. My wife who is not a normal meat eater cleaned her plate. I ordered Lamb Rack and was concerned that the menu said it was only 4 bones (1/2 rack), but this was domestic Lamb not the imported stuff. The portion was more than enough and the taste was indescribably good. Oh yes, they have a full bar and the Rob Roy was made like the bar tender knew me. Tremendous service. If you want to impress someone, this is the place!

I have been to LG's at this location several times and always most happy with the meal and service. Unfortunately, this last visit was not as good. I wanted to try the Chilean Sea Bass, which a friend of mine had on my last dining to LG's. Unfortunatel, it was not what my friend had enjoyed. Whatever was used as spice was HOT and over powered the wonderful natural sweet flavor of Chilean Sea Bass!!!!! So my dinner was not even satisfactory. My friend dining with me ordered the Rib Eye and was very pleased. I guess I have learned my lesson NEVER order seafood in a steak house. They should really remove it from the menu!!!

Tasty steak cooked exactly as ordered, with choices from blue to well. Prefer to have sides and sauces included in price so I don't feel nickel and dimed. This place is not inexpensive, but I would still rather pay a few more dollars and have a veggie or sauce as part of my plate. The Caesar looked amazing, next time I'll share the steak and have a salad too.

We felt like having a good steak and hadn’t been there in years. My husband ordered medium rare filet and we sent it back because it was medium
The quality was mediocre for the $42 each that it cost. The beet salad had 2 slices of beets only. We had a martini and class of red wine,the beet salad and two filets for $172 with tip. Expensive fora mediocre meal

We in fact showed up for our 5:00 pm reservation on time but the restaurant doors were locked and nobody answered when we knocked, and the sign in the window indicated that they do not open until 5:30 pm. If you don't open until 5:30 pm, then why accept a reservation for 30 minutes prior to that? If you are going to accept a 5:00 pm reservation, then your doors most certainly should have been open by 4:50 pm, which is when we showed up. If your hours have changed, either permanently or seasonally, then correct your sign as I guarantee that we are not the only party that has experienced this problem.

Extremely disappointed to say the least. This was a 40th anniversary celebration and this was the only restaurant that my wife wanted to go to. Not happy at all!

While we were very upset at this problem, we still did call as a courtesy to cancel our reservation after we had to go elsewhere. I would hope that as a return courtesy the restaurant would do something to make this situation right; I look forward to their response.

Thank you.

A great place for dinner with friends. From the moment we walked in everything was great. We were greeted with a smile. The gentleman that prepared the Cesar Salad was superb. We weren't offered a wine/drink menu by our server although we were immediately asked what type of cocktail/drink we wanted to order. When we did receive our cocktail orders the drinks were wonderful. Food was excellent and the presentation was nice too. A little noisy but we did not mind. I would recommend LGs for any occasion.

LG's is one of our favorite places to eat when we come to the Desert. We brought friends here that had never been before. The experience is always top notch. We loved our waiter and everyone we met. The management team was in full site and checked on every table. The food was top notch. I only gave it a good for value because as always I think steakhouses are always over priced even though the meat is high quality. LG's is very reasonable compared to Ruth Chris or Mortons and others when it comes to their sides and the portions. Again another wonderful evening at LG's La Quinta.
