Service and ambiance is great at this restaurant. The food is a bit too pricey for what you get and we had some better meals at less pricey locations nearby.
Lovely bar and inventive menu —great friendly service.
Wonderful ambiance. Great service. Some unique menu offerings- although we didn’t get to enjoy their seasonal menu offerings.
We had an amazing anniversary dinner at Morgans. The live music was impeccable and the food was outstanding. They knew it was our anniversary and the severe greeted us by our last name. They gave us a dessert of our choice complimentary for our anniversary.
My wife and I have been coming to the La Quinta Resort for several years but never had the opportunity to eat at Morgan's. It was my birthday weekend so we decided to give it a try. Wow, what good food and a good atmosphere! Our waiter, Parker, was top notch and had great suggestions on food/drinks. He even doubled as our photographer because my wife wants everything on Instagram or it never happened. Kudos for being patient Parker and making our night memorable. We will definitely be back soon!
Steak was undercooked, and when I notified the staff, no action was taken. Very overpriced for the food.
The service was awesome however the food was average nothing that said wow I need to come back. Pricing was very high. $35 corkage fee for our wine.
A single person with a loud cell phone voice overshadowed our dining experience and this review. Since this person was well-known to the staff, nothing was done to dampen the one-sided conversation. The service was very good as was the meal.
Upon arrival, our server, Steve, gave us a long spiel about how fantastic the chef was...how he had studied under two Michelin 5 star chefs. All I can say is that he must have missed the chapter on how to cook a piece of fish. I ordered the halibut, and was served a piece of dry, tough fish. I couldn't even finish eating it once I'd used up the sauce that came with it...because it was so horribly dry. I have traveled extensively and have never had a worse fish entree. Drinks were extremely skimpy....not a good pour at all. The prices were sky-high....which I wouldn't mind at all if the food was good...but it wasn't. My party's conclusion was that they would never have any desire to return. There are too many really good restaurants in the area. This one is definitely off our list.
Very nice- everyone very polite
Nothing special about this place. Food was just okay. Was hoping for the farm to table experience they advertise but didn’t see it. Waiter was a robot and even though we told him we were local he kept making comments as though we were new to the desert.
Wine was good though!
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.
Morgan's was quiet as usual in summer months, but we had a delicious meal and dining experience.
We had an outstanding riveted steak, cooked to perfection. The bureau and tomato salad was spot on.
They offered a delicious creamed corn side, which was changed to meet our dietary request to remove the cream - it was still most delicious!
We finished with a light desert of berries in a pastry crust, the end to a perfect meal with great service (Jesse) all along the way.
This will become our new special occasion restaurant in the desert.
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.
this is the best restaurant at the resort, the others are not very good. great selection of tequila, better than adobe grill, and margaritas are much better.
great service until the check came, then they disappeared.
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
