We enjoyed the dinner buffet very much. The seafood and prime rib were delicious. The dessert options were amazing. We love dining outside. I ended up eating breakfast, lunch and dinner here several times over my six day stay. All of our experiences were wonderful.

Having a second home in the desert, and hosting friends at such, we always bring our guests to the Marriott Desert Springs for a nice dinner out. The service and food this time was way below par. Initial acknowledgement of us seated at our table took 30 minutes. Finally get to order drinks and get a basket of bread (wife was starved) Drinks come 10 minutes later, and still no bread ( did I mention wife was starving? she's pre-diabetic) Order dinner. Got 5 meals right, one was wrong. All 3 of the 1/2 chicken orders were so bad that they were left on the plates. We promptly paid. left. and got something for my guests from in n'out. Great ambiance. Fix the food and we will be back.

Beautiful setting Have been multiple times for holiday buffets. Tried Christmas this year. So disappointing. All the breads were hard as rocks. very poor selection repeated throughout For 72 bucks each at least keep pouring the sparkling wine

This memorable brunch was on Christmas day - EVERYTHING about it was outstanding. From the huge variety of exquisitely prepared food to the professional & thoughtful service by Andrea to the perfectly glorious weather & exquisite setting outside on the lake at the JWMarriott in Palm Springs. Perfection was achieved by the whole team - management, chefs, front & back of the house staff - in creating this stellar dining experience.

The service was slow and my entree was cold by the time it got to me. Expensive and disappointing.

We waited over an hour for our food without any explanation. When the food eventually arrived 3 of the pasta meals were cold and had to be sent back.

Food was the best part of the experience
Hostess was welcome and very respectful
Servers and food runners were loud in putting silverware and glasses. Need to learn more fine dining edicts. After dining and spending about $300 for only 2 people. The person left at the front desk refused to stamp the ticket for valet and we had to wait for manager to take care of it.
It wasn’t about the $8 valet parking but about the concept that the hostess said the normally validate tickets! They have some communication issues and as I said edicts about fine dining.. sadly for an establishment in JW Marriott.

We enjoyed an excellent dinner at the Rockwood Grill. The restaurant has the choice of inside or outside dining. This visit we chose inside along the expansive windows, as we decided to order their magnificent buffet for dinner. (Available Friday and Saturday.) Their set up for the buffet was quite amazing. The food choices included sufficient variety from soup and salads and a pasta station, to pizza, chicken strips and fries for the kids, to shrimp and crab legs to chicken and prime rib. And much more. The dessert selections were so beautiful from chocolate strawberries to pecan tarts to mousse chocolate cups and so many more selections. It almost looked too pretty to eat! Wines (extra) by the glass or bottle, and cocktails are also available. Service was friendly and professional. We were looking forward to returning to this restaurant on this trip and we definitely came away happy (and full).
