Love the sautéed calamari and the swordfish when available. I like the fact that the entrees come with potato and vegetables, not ala carte

Nice menu has a lot of variety in both starters and main courses. My husband said, "best hamburger he has had."

My only comment would be that their wine list is lacking.

Our 20th anniversary. Great food and service! The ambiance was amazing. We were seated right on time for reservation. Ordered cocktails and they came quickly along with water. We ordered the burnt ends as appetizer and it was delicious!
I ordered the muscles and wow! Sooo good! Husband had Scottish salmon and loved it too! Then we had Turkish coffee ice cream and mango sorbet! Nice light goodness! Overall a great dining experience!!

Tried one of their daily specials (claims and day scallops) and it was delicious. My wife had the filet with asparagus also very good. A little loud, but we were close to the bar. We will definitely go their for dinner again.

This was our second dining experience at Fortun's and we have come to the conclusion that there is no better value or service in La Quinta than you will find here. The food was outstanding, ambiance was perfect and comfortable, service was unmatched. We will be back regularly from now on.

Food was great, and service adequate for only their second night open.
There was a party of some kind with a bunch of young women whooping it up and generally being obnoxious.
Ruined it for us.

Ambiance was great, food delicious and staff very nice. Service was outstanding when we arrived but as it became more crowded wait time was slightly slower. More staff might have helped. It will definitely not deter me from dining there again!

When making the reservation I stated that this was a special occasion for a 80th birthday. When the girl also called me to confirm the reservation she said she would make a note of it and take care of it. After our meal I called it to her attention and she said she forgot. We will not be going back.

We have been to Fortun's many times and in the past they were hit and miss with the food. Recently they have been very good and consistent. This time we were seated in the bar area which is very noisy and conversation is difficult. With the TV's and the music and the loud conversation and laughter, dining is not very comfortable. If you can, ask for a table in the dining room or eat outside with the misters. Their Calamari and Chop chop salad are consistently great. The Prime Rib French dip is also very tasty. One member of our party always orders the cauliflower pizza which she says is fantastic!

The burnt ends starter is the best. We'll return just for that! We found this on Open table and so glad we did. It was a great find during the heat wave in June, 2021.

I requested a table rather than a high top. Unfortunately it meant sitting on the other side of the restaurant. We had to ask to move as the air conditioning was blowing on us. Very accommodating. Really like this restaurant and staff but will go back to the high tops. That room is either hot or cold.

It was a burger week celebration, and I enjoyed a wonderful bacon and blu cheese burger. My wife had her usual favorite the braised short ribs. Excellent dinner as always.
