 (Palm Springs)·Dined 2 days ago

I was really disappointed with the menu choices. I picked the enchilada combination and it really was not very good. It was not worth the drive from north Palm Springs. Won't be back.

We enjoyed a wonderful enening tapas meal with good conversation with the table next to us (they were visiting from Turkey)and very cheerful , smiling, and friendly - and efficient - service. The food was very tasty, but a bit off in terms of quantity. We would definitely eat here again, and would recommend to any friends. Good wine list and choices for every taste.

We really enjoyed our meal. My husband got the enchiladas and i got the combinacion plate. Service was slow but we were not in a hurry so it didn’t bother us this particular time. We would come back again.

This is a regular fav especially during Christmas as the resort is decked out and the atmosphere is amazing! Menu has changed and overall food was good although I miss the tamales (still have pork, not cheese). Service staff was good and the manager even stopped by to see if everything was in order but the food took forever and the kids got tired and hungry. That’s the problem with a table of ten but overall it was good.

While very busy because of the holiday, we were seated promptly and our server was friendly and quick. It is a busy spot so if you want a quiet meal sit on the patio with heaters. It is not cheap! A combo plate w/ one each tamale, enchilada and one other item was $27, a bit much for basic Mexican food. Margarita was $14.

Eh....okay. Food mundane. Pollo con mole, tacos and such. Nothing spicey and I like spicey. Straight up drinks good. Blended touristy ones just sweet nothing. We got two complimentary desserts because the service was so slow. Not their fault. It was Christmas Day and the place was packed.
I would not go there again unless I just wanted to sip taquilla and listen to the band. Outside dining is lovely. Inside is noisy.

I usually like to go to Adobe and eat outside. Nice ambience outside but it was cold and ate inside. Lousy ambiance. It was loud and felt like a cafeteria. My husband ordered tacos (2). They were tiny like street tacos. Very disappointed.

We here for a winter getaway from Chicago. The restaurant and the entire La Quinta Resort was magical! The Spanish influence and the musicians playing live music outside under the fairy lights, surrounded by flowers and fountains made us feel like we were in Spain. The food was excellent. The service was great. We sat outside under the heat lamps overlooking the spectacular and humongous Christmas tree and the gardens. I have never seen a more beautifully lit tree.

 (Philadelphia)·Dined on December 1, 2017

I would have to say that this was one of the most disappointing meals I've had in the last 5 years or so. The reviews were very good and my expectations were high. I'm from the east coast and our Mexican food is generally mediocre. So when I come to California and eat Mexican, especially at a pricey resort restaurant, I'm expecting a really good meal, but man oh man, was I disappointed. As a general rule, the food tasted both inauthentic and was largely tasteless or mediocre. The tableside guacamole was the worst of its kind I've ever had - it had almost no taste whatsoever. I had cheese enchiladas that were just fair at best. My wife' avocado soup was entirely tasteless - she poured in salsa to try to give it flavor but to no avail.

There were two good things about the meal. Our server was delightful - no complaints there at all - and we tipped for the service because he's not the one running the kitchen. Also, there was a tuna and avocado appetizer with an asian flavor that was really excellent - night and day better than everything else.

Anyway, the next day, having not satisfied our craving for Mexican food, we went to Palm Canyon and went to an authentic Mexican restaurant that cost 2/5 as much and the food was to die for. But, with all due respect for the resort (which I love), I wouldn't waste your money at this place unless you are just going for the atmosphere, which is very nice, particularly on the patio. But I hope management of the restaurant reads this review and takes it seriously - friends I had were also dining at the restaurant that evening and, from what I can tell, they were also quite disappointed with their meals.

My parents came down to visit and i told them that it is a nice choice. Obviously the resort is beautiful. my Father is very picky because he owns a 5 star steak house which is much better then chain restaurants like Morton' and those other ones. He loved the chips and salsa.The as well as his dinner. I especially the ice tea.Service was average. So I would go back

Adobe Grill is located within the beautiful grounds of the La Quinta Resort. It's a second story restaurant that overlooks a beautifully landscaped terrace-like courtyard. We sat on their patio during the resort's holiday tree lighting ceremony...wonderful. The fajitas, table side guacamole, margaritas, and flan dessert were all delicious. Many of the staff are long-time employees and were very friendly which made for a memorable experience.

We went to the Adobe Grill with another couple looking for a fun place with great food. The settling was beautiful. We sat outside on a warm evening listening to live music. The service was suspect and the food was ok. We had a great time and would certainly go again.

We live in La Quinta and this was one of our many dinners at Adobe. Once again, they came through with fresh, authentic Mexican food and great drinks. A special “thank you” to our waiter, Victor, who gave excellent service and made us feel welcome. Forget the tourist traps and visit an authentic Mexican restaurant: Adobe Grill.

We are locals and have eaten at Adobe Grill many times. The food is always great and I love the changes to the menu. Table side guacamole is always a must. Fabulous margaritas! However, it is the service that makes us return. Oswaldo is a fabulous server who always remembers our preferences and ensures we are well taken care of. Personality and great service - thank you! A special mention must be made to Heriberto who also remembers us and is so welcoming. A nice touch was the chef coming out and personally checking on the tables.
