About the restaurant
The ancient tradition of the Samurai lives on at Mikado where knife-twirling chefs use fire and steam to create a mouth watering menu of steak, chicken and seafood delights. The highlight of the experience is the dazzling talents of your chef as he expertly chops, juggles, jokes and prepares an incredible meal right before your eyes. While you are led to your table through our private Japanese garden, notice the Koi swimming below and the sound of cascading waterfalls.

Mikado at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa is known throughout the Coachella Valley and Southern California as the leader in authentic Teppan-Yaki Dining.

But it doesn’t stop there! East meets West at the ultimate sushi bar where you can relax and enjoy the freshest foods and a signature martini or sake. Celebrate an intimate gathering or a private function up to 140 guests at Mikado where the food is the show! Arigato!

"Please note that Mikado Restaurant reservations are not inclusive of a boat tour."

First time to Guillermo's and was VERY impressed! Definitely NOT your "typical" Mexican restaurant. Food was outstanding--as was the service. Look forward to going back.

Ernie's is an "open to the public" Gastro-Pub located at PGA West, overlooking the famous Stadium and Nicklaus Tournament courses. The hallmark of Gastro Pub fare is that it takes adventurous twists on familiar food, all made from scratch with palette arousing ingredients. Ernie's offers both a casual and refined atmosphere that welcomes the casual beer drinker, the wine enthusiast or the hipster looking for a cocktail. The restaurant consists of booths, low and high top tables positioned to provide people watching, sports on various TV’s or take in golf course views. The large patio provides both outdoor living room furniture and table dining. Two gas fire pits provide and area to relax, unwind and socialize.

Service was outstanding. We dined on the patio as we frequently do on Memorial Day when we’re in La Quinta. Pancakes were not terrific but my husband enjoyed his French toast. The setting is beautiful and the hostess made sure the umbrella was in the proper position to provide our table with optimum shade. The server was also courteous and took excellent care of us, checking on us frequently. This was our tenth or eleventh Memorial Day breakfast at Ernie’s. We thoroughly enjoyed it, as always. Highly recommend Ernie’s. Thank you.

I love the atmosphere, eat there occasionally and always have a great meal. Best service. Friendly waiters and waitresses. Just a lovely place to have lunch or dinner. I love the outdoor seating area. It’s large and look over the mountains. It’s one of my favorite places.

The food was amazing! Efrin, our waiter was incredible! He made sure we had everything, was so kind and super friendly! Adobe Grill is a must when in La Quinta. If you’re lucky, maybe you’ll get served by Efrin!

About the restaurant
When Walter Morgan first opened the La Quinta Hotel in 1926, his dream was to provide a welcoming desert escape for his friends and family. Throughout the ensuing decades, that dream has blossomed, and today TWENTY6 sits at the heart of La Quinta Resort providing the time-honored hospitality that Mr. Morgan so loved. Our focus is chef-driven modern American cuisine, using local, sustainable sources whenever possible. Our passion is providing exceptional service, our hallmark since 1926.

Palm Desert
About the restaurant
Before Stuft Pizza gained recognition as a top restaurant in Palm Desert, and La Quinta, Jack Bertram and his wife, Pat, launched the first Stuft Pizza in Cerritos, California in 1976. After nearly 9 months of experimenting, Jack developed the recipe for the now beloved pizza. Despite initially offering only take-out pizza, the store's unwavering commitment to quality propelled its success. Two years later, Jack and Pat opened a second store in Whittier, and in 1986, Stuft Pizza transitioned into a franchise.

While franchisee-owned outlets operate outside the Coachella Valley, the Stuft Pizza Bar & Grill locations in the desert, both owned by the Bertram Family, are distinct. Since 2004 in La Quinta and 2014 in Palm Desert, we have been proud fixtures in the desert, boasting expanded menus, full bars, full service, HD TVs, and an exceptional wine list.

I love d&b’s new menu. Their prices are very good too and worth the price. I love how Wednesdays are 1/2 on games and how they have their 5 drinks for $5 happy hour too. It’s a great place for kids and adults! Enjoyment for the family!!
