Morgan's in the Desert is our favorite restaurant in the Desert for a special occasion as it is quite pricey for "everyday dining." Menu selections/options are very good and the food quality is always excellent. Service is generally top notch.

You could tell the server wasn’t interested in working a table that only had two people. We ordered a bottle of wine and he mentioned we’d have to wait to get it since he had other tables to work. They even kept switching servers on us continually throughout the meal. Never know who would show up and when to help us with something else.... for the cost it wasn’t worth it

This is our annual dinner at Morgan’s for my Mother’s birthday. Usually we have had wonderful experiences. This time the service was terrible. At first our soup was incorrect which was not that big of a deal. We then asked for more bread for the kids because correcting the soup was taking so long. That never showed up. Next I ordered Brussel Sprouts with my entree which never arrived. The final straw for me was when the table next to use was provided a birthday cake for their table and my Mother was not given a formal celebration even after we notified the Maitre D and attached a note to our reservation.

Overall I was very disappointed. I brought my issues up again to the Maitre D as we were leaving and I was told that they were very busy because of another large party. I explained that just because the restaurant is busy, it should not take away from our experience.

We don't go to Morgans often because it's on the expensive side, but their 3 course monthly feature dinners are fairly priced. On a Monday night it was almost deserted so was very quiet and service extremely attentive. This month featured pommegranite. The salad with grilled shrimp was excellent, the lamb entree very tasty, and dessert was like eating fudge. It was nice being able to hear each other without shouting, but don't know if that would be true on the weekend, especially when the season starts next week. Getting to the hostess stand can be tricky with where it's placed, especially if the bar is packed. You have to wind around the drinkers and walk in front of the guitar player to get there. Seems like nearer to the door would alleviate the obstacle course.

Bread!! The first commun world wide food...used for meals.
Have some breadbasket for the table ....it’s not gonna kill your overall profits by offering bread when I spent $300 on diner instead of giving three little assorted pieces for $6.00 😖

This is our second trip to Palm Springs and our second visit to Morgan’s. We liked it so well the first time we made it a priority to go back.

Although under different ownership/ chef food was still very good and the grounds are beautiful

It’s a bit expensive but worth it.

Great ambiance at this classic desert resort. Menu has been recently simplified, but excellent quality remains. Burrata and heirloom tomatoes with crisped quinoa was an excellent starter to share. Seared scallops were fresh, ample and delicious. Nice selection of side dishes, including truffle french fries. Service was excellent as usual.

Only issue is, as part of the revamped menu, is a service charge for bread service. This was the only disappointment and the policy should be reversed. No one in the Coachella Valley to our knowledge has such a charge....we would rather it just be included in the meal cost rather than feeling "nickel and dimed" at an otherwise classy place.

Overrated restaurant. The service was horrible. My guest got in a fight with the server because the server refused to bring butter with his bread (which you have to pay for, BTW). We waited forever to order, and had to pour our own wine. Had to flag the server down every time we needed something. It felt like a diner, until I got the check for $150 per person.
The tables are so close together that the staff bump into your chair every time they pass by.
There are plenty of better places in the area, and it's well worth a car ride off the hotel grounds to avoid this place.

Initial reception was cold. We had originally reserved an outdoor table and when we arrived it was obvious they did not want to set the outdoor table. Once we were set outdoor the service was excellent. Way too pricy!

Went for anniversary. Promptly welcomed and seated at nice table for 2. Then greeted soon thereafter with a cheery "happy anniversary" by our waitress. The evening was started right, and continued that way throughout. We were given all time we wanted while very attentive to our needs. We ordered salads and entrees, which were both very fresh, tasty, and served with perfect timing (not hurried, no waiting excessively). My wife's lamb saddle was prepared and presented well, albeit not the most tender ever (why only 4 stars on food). Had I rated my halibut, I would have rated 6 on a 1-5 scale as preparation, presentation, flavor was outstanding. Evening ended with an unexpected light desert treat wishing us happy anniversary in script chocolate. Great choice for our celebration. Do we recommend?- yes. Will be back? - yes.

Adam greeted us promptly & offered us water. He was so pleasant, friendly & helpful.
Parker was fabulous! He took such great care of us!
They worked great together and didn’t overwhelm us.
Israel brought us our salad ... a bit more quiet but friendly.

The food was amazing! The wine Parker recommended was delish! He didn’t let our glasses get empty without hovering over us. We definitely will he back! Thank-you!
