Friday night had a lot of people at the resort and there were multiple outdoor events going on. The ambience was amazing with all of the lights, music and activity. Adobe had a great view of it from the outdoor patio. The restaurant looks great too, but not sure how it would be if not full.

We have enjoyed Adobe Grill on many occasions for years. Unfortunately this wasn’t up to par on this evening. We had a reservation but were seated inside, all the way in the back. The noise level was terrible. The Original margarita wasn’t very good. We witnessed another diner sending hers back, although we didn’t. Our food was delivered cold and unattractive. Our sever was the only thing we could compliment. To add to the ambiance, we were seated next a woman who was fully exposed nursing her 18-24 month old child. She made no attempt to shield herself from public view. As she switched from one breast to another numerous times throughout the meal. I don’t hold the restaurant responsible for this, and nor did I complain. This is coming from a woman who nursed both her children, but respected others viewing options.

It’s been a few years since our last visit to the Adobe Grill. We had a couple less than stellar meals and with so many other choices, moved on.
The setting is a big draw so with some out of town guests in tow, we gave it another shot.
We were very impressed with the experience.
Food was super good, management and staff excited to serve you. All in all, a wonderful time is to be had at the Adobe Grill.

Not sure if it was due to their recent re-opening or not but the food was just fair. There were 6 of us and only 1 person actually enjoyed their food (combination plate with tamale and enchilada) - the rest felt the food was pretty mediocre. The starter of chips (which were warm) and salsa (which was delicious) were best part of the meal! Sorry, Adobe! Waiter had a sense of humor and was attentive for the most part.

We ordered one all shrimp fajitas and one chicken fajitas dinner with one chiles wueros appetizer and table side guacamole. Everything was fine except the horribly dry, overcooked chicken AND they forgot it was my girlfriend’s birthday. I mentioned her birthday when I made the reservation and told the hostess when we arrived for dinner..........Disappointing & Unacceptable!!

Food quality and portions are evident, but just something missing. Got the queso appetizer, real cheese is hard to get melts like velveeta, but it’s definitely not a must try. Service was good. Ultimately, good place for ambience and parties, otherwise the flavors don’t justify the cost.

We had a large party of 13. We had originally booked for 12 one other person join us a few days prior. I called the restaurant to update the count but when we got there they had only set up for 12 but they immediately put another table so we be comfortable. They assigned us two servers and they were both friendly and tentative. Everyone liked the food. The only negative was the pitcher margaritas it was average.

It was fun and the food was great! We sat on the patio which was fine since it was in the evening. When we were inside it was extremely loud and hard to hear the person I was with when trying to talk. We were in there only while being waited to be seated. The tacos were great!

Always love the Adobe Grill. Great food. Wonderful drinks. Sitting outside is perfect since the interior can get . a bit loud with tile floors and families.

Food is very good although the menu is limited for a Mexican restaurant. Service is friendly and just right. Margaritas are a bit expensive but good. Can be noisy due to all the families and kids

The food was yummy! I had the chicken tinga tostaditas(appetizer). They were flavorful. My husband had some green enchiladas and he loved them. It was very loud and we sat near the kitchen so not the best location to sit. All in all good dining experience, but the waiters & busboys all looked a little rushed. The food seemed to be a bit expensive, Like the guacamole. I wanted to order but refused to pay 20 for it. The flan was delish. Probably would go there again if it wasn’t so hot and try outdoor seating.

We split the skirt steak fajitas. With some extra tortillas it’s just the right amount for two. When busy the main dining room is very loud, but the smaller back room is less so.

Always have dinner at Adobe grill when we stay at La Quinta and it's always delicious! Our waitress this time was absolutely amazing. So sweet and personable and really helped you choose a dish if you were sure. We love sharing the Adobe combo and getting a quesadilla or the poke tostada. The sangria is always fresh! The price is definitely going to be higher than average but the ambience is great and it's worth it for a fun date night!

We always look forward our first dinner at La Quinta-at the Adobe Grill. This time we were underwhelmed. On the positive side, the ambience is the same-festive and the staff is friendly. However, the service was intermittent and distracted. This was a birthday celebration which I indicated on the reservation however no one seemed to know it was a special occasion. To his credit, the server did respond when I ordered a dessert and mentioned the birthday. The starters were terrific and the presentation is great; the main dishes were very average with the exception of the fish tacos and the chicken tacos. Portions are generous, but I would rather have a smaller, more carefully prepared plate. Lastly, we sat inside, and the noise made it very difficult to hold a conversation with anyone beyond the person next to you. We will definitely come back and try again. We have had many good meals here before, and hopefully this was an anomaly.

Beautiful restaurant at iconic resort. Start with tastey margaritas on veranda overlooking gorgeous waterfalls and Mountain View’s while listening to live music. Follow with a cozy table on deck of restaurant with fresh table made guacamole and more fabulous margaritas! Enjoyed fish tacos, seafood w mole sauce and over the top bread pudding with choc Mexican ice cream. Outstanding service provided by Victor Cortes truly made the evening special. A definite “must do” whenever we come to La Quinta.

The service was sooo slow! We weren’t given waters until 15 minutes after we sat down. It’s hot in Palm Springs! It took ages for our waitress to come and that remained the theme of the night. When she did remember to check in she spoke to us at max volume- “HOW IS YOUR FOOD?!!!”. It was honestly a joke. The restaurant wasn’t loud...and she was literally projecting to the max. The food itself was mediocre at best and the margaritas were not up to par and their idea of “muddled” cucumbers in one we ordered are cut up chunks.

Services was good. The inside room is very loud but the corner was a bit quieter. My enchiladas Verdes were excellent. Margaritas are extra tasty.
