    We had friends in town and went early and it was the best food and service we have ever had there. It’s always good but it was a notch above this time.

    This is an excellent choice in quaint downtown La Quinta. There were 4 of us and we each ordered different plates for dinner. The waiter was exceptional. His attention and knowledge of the menu was fantastic. I ordered the steak which was incredibly flavorful. Everyone in our party thought the food was excellent and were happy with their choices. I was astonished at how quickly our meals arrived. It was easy to converse. Highly recommend!

    Service was slow but pleasant. One food offering was good, the other (burger) was cold and well done vs medium. We raised this to the waitress, she promised to report it, but nothing else. We did not want to send it back as we had waited 30 mins by then. We have been a customer for many, many years, but they are being killed by RD RNNR nearby.

    Food was excellent, the French dip was perfectly flavored, Cobb salad looked good, everyone was happy with their meals. Only thing I didn't like was the music that was played. I love music is the background but this was very heavy, noisy music for a restaurant during lunch.

    Enjoyed a delicious dinner on the patio, complete with band in the courtyard! Swordfish over risotto was the best my husband has tasted. The Israeli salad with salmon was delicious and I will order again. Second time we have enjoyed their delicious food and ambience. Will return!

    The food was pretty good, our server never brought us refills. When he did he put water into our lemonade glass and never brought us fresh lemonade. The seating arrangements were terrible. You have to have a better solution for such a windy place. As a local resident, I was very disappointed.

    All was very well done. First time we've eaten there. Only problems were: (1) We were in an enclosed outdoor area and the wind was quite strong which was distracting as there were blowing tarps trying to keep the wind outside; and (2) Food did not come out as warm as it should. This matter was addressed quickly and adequately. Definitely will return.

    It was strange that the Hostess could not locate my reservation...I showed her my Open Table confirmation on my phone. She remained "confused" until a young man on staff looked at her computer and saw my name immediately. Interesting.

    Chose this place on recommendation from friends who visited from Seattle last month and it was a solid choice. Ezmerelda provided great service. Brussel Sprouts appetizers was terrific, then shared Coachella Salad and the Prime Rib Dip sandwich. Plenty of food. My wife enjoyed the Peach Drop cocktail and I had the Nine Hats Cab.
