Overall great experience. A little loud because we were seated next to a group of 12 men. Piano music was a nice touch.
Food was outstanding, however it is very overpriced. Service was perfect!
Amazing experience! The staff was helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. The food was incredible and the atmosphere was exactly what my wife and I were looking for to celebrate our second anniversary. I would go back, in a heartbeat!
Restaurant was nice and staff were pleasant and attentive. Outdoor seating was beautiful other than the incessant harassment from hoards of flies. I know there’s nothing much that can be done about that but it significantly diminished our dining experience. We were swatting away 20+ flies 100% of the time from when we got our bread until when we begged for the check. I kept my napkin over the bread and fries but to no avail, flies were all over us crawling on our face and one even got stuck on my husband’s plate. We made the reservation in the morning for 6:45pm and all that was left was outdoor seating, so unless you want to be attacked my flies, reserve well over a day in advance to ensure indoor seating. The view was great but not worth the flies. Food was also overpriced for what we got $40+ for a main dish with no sides. Won’t be returning here again when we visit La Quinta Resort in the future. We told them it was our anniversary and they presented us with a lovely desert so that was nice!
Rebekah was a wonderful, accommodating (I’m 7 mo pregnant & diabetic) server. The server’s assistant Dylan was also great. Delicious app and entree. Solid experience overall.
Restaurant was overwhelmingly noisy which made it very difficult to carry on a conversation.
We had a perfect meal. Great food, service and ambiance. Highly recommend this restaurant
Everything was perfect!
This place is very pretty and romantic, but extremely OVERPRICED!! My husband and I split a steak and got 3 sides, no alcohol and walked out a $100 poorer. The New York strip steak was just ok. The Mac and cheese (I think they called it “ macaroni gratin” was very good, the parmigiano-rosemary fries and bacon brussels sprouts were ok-ish. We had reservations at 7pm and we didn’t get our food until 7:45. We definitely won’t be going back or recommending it to friends.
Morgan’s has so much potential, but just stumbles on the execution. At first glance their menu seems alluring and the dining atmosphere is as good or better than anything in the desert. But they consistently over promise and under deliver. Food is well cooked, but lacks flavor. Drinks are sloppy and small for the prices ($19 - $22) that they charge. The service is attentive but comes across as scripted and impersonal. The bottom line is this is a beautiful dining experience and if money is no object, you might be satisfied. But when you compare Morgan’s to what you can typically expect for a $300 dinner for two, it falls short in every area.
The four of us had an outstanding dinner and the service was suburb. Morgan's is on the pricey side, however, we feel the food and service is worth the money.
Great food and service. Great setting
Loved sitting outside, and had amazing service from our server. The food was just 'ok' - we ordered 3 medium rare steaks and received 3 medium-well / well steaks which was greatly disappointing. We felt bad to ask to turn back all 3 steaks so we just ate them. The free bread, however, was fresh and tasted great. I would still recommend this place - not for the steak, but for the ambiance.
Our waiter, Steve, made the experience wonderful with his wine pairings!! We have been going for 12 years and the restaurant is always on our list when we come to La Quinta! Highly recommend!
Amazing food and excellent service! Kim went above and beyond!
One of the best meals I have ever had in the Palm Springs area. This was the June special cherry festival meal and it was stunning;y good.
$50 Corkage fee is outrageous for that restaurant. Will go to other competitors moving forward where I can bring good wine at a much cheaper corkage fee.
I’ve dined at Morgan’s many times through the years..... the dinner last Thursday has to be in my top five in the past years anywhere. Outstanding.
Patrick is a phenomenal server who really knows his stuff.
A very pleasant dining experience. First, you walk thru the beautiful grounds of the La Quinta Resort. Then you enter a very cozy dining room with a warm atmosphere. Then you have amazing and friendly staff to enhance the experience (special shout out to our server, Anita). Then, you get delicious food served at a relaxed pace. Complimentary mini french rolls were served with an excellent salted butter. Char grilled Scallops were especially exceptional. We've been here many times and it never disappoints.
Very nice restaurant with good food and goos service. Only complaint is the $50 corckage fee on a bottle brought in which is just outrageous and way above what restaurants typically charge. The menu is expensive enough. This feels like they're taking advantage of customers.
Outstanding menu selections. Superb cocktails and wine list. Gracious but attentive service.
Solid spot but not quite up to the standard we were expecting. The indoor area is pretty nice, outdoor area is pretty bland and prone to random kids and others infiltrating the fire pit. Food was good but not spectacular—very expected. Drinks, service, general vibe and other aspects of the establishment were all good but again, not spectacular/outstanding. Maybe that is because we had a high bar coming in or maybe it is just a reflection of the establishment.
The service was good but not excellent.
Food quality and presentation was as expected.
The lobster was undercooked.
Anita saved the evening! When we arrived, we were told that new management had begun a new policy of $50 corkage fee! Completely ridiculous!!!!! We had this special evening planned for a long time and didn’t want your dinner spoiled, so we agreed. Anita was so above and beyond, providing excellent service, wonderful suggestions and overall just made the evening exactly what we anticipated. Thank you Anita❤️
All good! Nothing negative to say!
We loved it!
Go check it out!!
The best food and environment! Server was more than accommodating to us!! We will definitely be back!
We have been staying at The Resort in La Quinta for over 40 years. And, we consistently have eaten at Morgan's. It was our Wedding Anniversary and I brought a special bottle of wine....$50.00 corkage, that's outrageous! It doesn't cost that much at Nobu or Mastro's which at far superior in service and food.
Was entertaining out of town guests. Everyone's dish came out cold and wrong. Manager was not helpful at all. Will never return to this restaurant. $50 corkage fee, ridiculous.
Morgan’s now charges $50 per wine bottle for corkage fee!! More than any other restaurant in town. Not sure we love the place that much. More principle than anything.
The food was very average and it was overly expensive. I don’t mind spending money at a nice restaurant but the meal was very average
Always a pleasure to dine at Morgan’s. Service, food and ambience is one of a kind! One of our favorite places in the desert :)
Amazing food. Great service.
Roasted cauliflower was amazing. The rest of the meal was just okay. I had the duck which was very under seasoned and the skin was not even close to crispy. Very disappointing after the reviews I read when deciding where to dine.
Everything was great, unitl I became ill. I shared my food allergies, however something must have gone wrong. Very disappointing.
Fantastic food, fantastic service and fantastic drinks! We love this place.
menu seems limited a few more selections would be appreciative
