We had a wonderful experience at Morgan’s. The surf and turf special was incredible. Jesse and the Maitre d both gentlemen did an awesome job and gave us a wonderful celebration. Will recommend to all.
Had another wonderful dining experience at Morgan's. The food and atmosphere were top notch as always. What truly sets this restaurant apart is the service quality. Waitstaff is quite knowledgeable and along with the management goes out of their way to ensure you have a great experience. Can't wait for our next visit!
Another memorable dinner in the books. Excellent food and great service! Really enjoyed the pappardelle pasta, pork chop, ahi tuna tar tar and the delicious lemon dessert. We’ll be back soon!
Excellent all round experience topped off by an awesome waiter - Parker.
The food was good, menu also good, service was HORRIBLE! I would have preferred Twenty6 or the Adobe Grill over this. I chose this place because we love to visit Steakhouse's. I saw the GM visit one or two tables in the 3 hours we were there and never once our table. Had he come by I would have let him know that the menu's were taken from us before we even ordered our entree and as a result I had no wine list to look over. I hope some changes are made soon because since our visit I've learned that I am not the only one with such a bad experience at this restaurant.
Lobster was undercooked and mussels were very “fishy.”
Fantastic. Every time!
One of the best restaurants we have been too. Stayed one night at the resort. Food was fantastic with lots of choices. Customer Service was over the top...amazing. Highly Recommend.
The service, meal, hostess, waiter and bartender were amazing! Thank you!!
Every time we visit La Quinta, Morgan's is a must! Wonderful ambiance, delicious food and drinks. Definitely the gem of our most favorite resort.
We had a great experience celebrating a special occasion at Morgan’s in the Desert. Anita, our server, was delightful. We will be back soon based on our first experience.
We’ve had really good experiences here but this dinner fell flat. We sent an entree back and one in our group ended up not eating dinner because of that. Maybe the chef was just off. Disappointing.
The restaurant and resort great.
the place has a lot of history.
food was superb.
Went to here with my son from out of town. This place obviously caters to large parties and it was difficult as a table of two to get attention.
We have been to Morgan’s many times and have always found it to be very good in all respects. On this occasion, the food was not as good as expected, though the server (
Of course) gave us a very good review of the sea bass. We enjoy the space, but, found everything else not to measure to our expectation
Overall it was amazing! Beautiful restaurant and great service. The food was excellent. I would have preferred if my ribeye hasn’t been cooked on the grill, but it was still very good. Definitely will go back.
We had dined here before and again, we were not disappointed. The service was outstanding, the patio setting was perfect and food was great. Well done all around.
Thanks for the great service.
We love Morgan’s!!! They are so nice and the food is amazing!!! We go every year for my mother birthday and it’s a great time!
Great place since they have a new chef. Drinks, food and atmosphere can’t be beat
Graduation dinner with my daughter at the end of a 3 day stay at the La Quinta Waldorf. She had the salmon and I had the pasta with zucchini ribbons, which had lovely little artichokes in it as well. Parmesan fries, little bread knots, all the little additions to the meal were great. The bartender made some special drinks for us with just our ideas of flavors - berry for her and grapefruit for me. The juice soda and a martini were awesome. We will be back. :)
We really enjoyed the wine selections and the service of the wine. The food service was slow and minimally attentive. The food was good, not excellent. I felt like my Ahi Tuna could have been served at my local fish sandwich shop. We were looking for something a little more special for our visit away.
Great environment, setting and atmosphere. We had reservations in the dining room but after sitting at the bar with the cool bartender, piano singer and great vibe, we decided to stay there and eat. It was super fun. People in our area were having a blast and friendly to us too. Food was good (except the oysters), drinks great. Loved it. Walk around the grounds - very cool!
As a previous resident of Indian Wells, I have always been a big fan of Jillian's, Cuistot, and Wally's Desert Turtle, but all were closed for summer. A friend recommended Morgan's at the Waldorf Astoria La Quinta Resort, so we made reservations to celebrate my wife's birthday. Upon arrival, we were seated immediately in the beautiful rustic restaurant. It is apparent by the many reminders that adorn the walls that Old Hollywood (Capra, Ginger Rodgers, etc) used to frequent this restaurant. My wife ordered one of the refreshing Signature Cocktails while I had a glass of Grgich Chardonnay. For appetizers my wife had the Seasoned Cauliflower while I had the Scallops with Watermelon. Both were perfectly prepared and delicious. For entrees we enjoyed the Rack of Lamb and the Pork Chop. The seasoning and sauces that accompanied each dish were absolutely perfect. A complimentary dish of vanilla ice cream with a shot of Chambord completed our meal. I would have to give a 10 to the waitress and staff as they attended to our every need throughout dinner. This was truly an outstanding meal with outstanding service and I would highly recommend any foodie staying in the Desert to make a reservation at Morgan's!!!!
Brian the bartender was excellent!!! Our waiter who had little kids was kind and attentive to our children’s needs. Fabulous restaurant
New chef from Norway. Food was fantastic. Even had rare wild mushrooms.
Booked table for 2. The table was so small that every time a dish was brought to the table we had to clear all the previous food off. The ceases salad was just ok and the waiter didn’t offer fresh black pepper
Not inexpensive, but ultimately worth it. Our server was excellent. The dining room was beautiful. We we're a bit taken aback that the same cocktail our neighboring table ordered on our recommendation came out looking completely different, but our neighbor didn't seem to mind, so no harm, no foul...lol
Nice dining experience with carpaccio and short ribs as highlights. Chocolate 'cake' dessert was a little busy with too many secondary flavors and no actual cake. We enjoyed the live music in the bar after dinner.
Cesar’s cocktails are spot on! Jason was our server and menu descriptions and recommendations were greatly appreciated! Thanks for a great evening!!
We had a party of six and everyone was pleased with the service and meal. The short ribs got the highest ratings with our small group however the steaks were good as well. They have some rather creative cocktails but not all of our gang appreciated them. If you are old school don't try them. Wine list is pretty good, pricey but that's to be expected.
Morgans is an amazing restaurant. From start to finish... great staff, great drinks, great service, great food, great ambiance!!! Parker was our server and he was super friendly and helpful. The food was OUTSTANDING!!!!
Duck was very chewy. My wife’s Lobster was good.
Fantastic dinner! I highly recommend this restaurant.
Although part of the La Quinta Resort I believe the restaurant does a great job of having its own identity. Everyone very friendly. Food was terrific. One of our favorites.
Outstanding menu selections; superb wine selections; gracious but attentive service.
As usual, great food and wine in a wonderful setting.
We had a very nice dinner before seeing the Earth, Wind and Fire concert at Fantasy Springs. Good cocktails and really great food. The service was excellent! We'll go back the next time we're at La Quinta.
This was not my first time here and this trip was a lot different than the last. The food, wine and options were amazing as always, but the service seemed off. I don't know if they were just really busy or if our server was just flighty but almost like worked up about something. It didn't bother our visit at all, but I'd expect 100% to match the rest of the AWESOME ness of this place.
