It's too sad that it can't be open every day during the summer.

The Grill at Marriott's Shadow Ridge offered a great ambiance, however it was overpriced for what was offered. The food was okay, I didn't feel like leaving the resort so it serviced its purpose. We only ate at the restaurant once during our 7 night stay. Yes, I would recommend it from a convenience standpoint. I would not if you're in search of a meal that is going to knock your socks off.

We enjoyed ourselves immensely. We were allowed to chose where we wanted to sit and we were told
Could order burgers even though they weren’t in the menu and they were delicious! Great food. Great atmosphere and relaxing and beautiful surroundings.
Thank you.

We were seated on the outside deck, overlooking the course celebrating a birthday dinner. Only a few of the tables were occupied and it was a wonderful quiet atmosphere. Suddenly a large man walks out of the restaurant and sits at the table next to us and proceeds to carry on a loud conversation on his cell phone. It lasted awhile and it was clear he was just catching up with someone. After that call ended he began to scroll through his phone and made SEVERAL more phone calls.
He was quite loud and we could not help but here his personal details. As if that weren't enough, he began walking around his table, which, being next to ours, meant he was creepily standing behind my chair for a while.
It seemed obvious to us that he was being very rude. He ruined our experience, and worse, seemed aware that he was doing so.
One of us wanted to complain but one did not so we didn't mention it. However, considering their atmosphere and prices, I would think having some management of the dining experience for all diners would be something they would have considered. I would suggest some discreet notices about allowing all diners to enjoy their meal without a phone call in the background.

Great place to meet up after golf or casual dining. The pretzel app was really good, the fish and salads were great.

If you are in the area, swing by

We were staying at Shadow Ridge and decided to try The Grill after a day of sightseeing. Given the location close to the timeshares we knew the place would be family friendly but the tables are quite close together which along with the noise level, made conversation difficult.

We shared my Caesar salad and ordered a goat cheese flat bread appetizer which was tasty. My wife's lamb chops were fine but the prime rib I ordered medium rare was more to the temperature of medium well but still was tender. Food was ok but overpriced so not much bang for your buck.

I really disappointed Sunday breakfast buffet.
You should avoid to use Sunday buffet.
Buffet quality is terrible.
Too few menus and options.
Look at the menu!!
22 dollars and you can eat only 9 meals and taste is poor.
And don’t include the omelets. It’s too expensive!!
Can you imagine the only nine foods buffet?

Had a great Sunday lunch. Started with the best onion rings. I always try to have them at least once during a visit to Palm Desert! Salads and tacos were all delicious. Always great service . Enjoy being able to watch the golfers when one sits outside.

Management made a big mistake, allowing a last minute private party in, which produced havoc in the kitchen. To make it worse, they let the private party order off the menu, A buffet or simpler approach would have been a better choice. As an owner at Shadow Ridge, I’m a bit worried about F&B decision making on an ongoing basis.

Food was very good!!! Lower rating because of SO many TVs all tuned to a pathetic reality show. Knew TVs would be on, it is a ‘sports bar’, but NOT one tuned to a sport. It was our first night here & didn’t want to get back in the car & drive more so The Grill was our only choice. If it were a nicer restaurant with out the distraction of TV we would be eating there again. Sometimes it’s nice to not need to leave the property. We understand they are catering to the golfers, but golf channel wasn’t even on.

Save your money and go somewhere else. The food is not good. There are giant TVs blaring in the dining room, while you're trying to eat and talk. And loud drunk people at the bar, which is positioned smack in the middle of the restaurant, screeching. The worst dining experience. Food is not worth paying money for. Felt sorry for the nice employees.

I had the rib-eye steak. At best, it was cooked the way I like it (rare) but the quality was not that good. When I order a steak, esp., a rib-eye I expect a "good" steak.

Our server, Nelson, was excellent.

We went to The Grille for the Saturday night "rib special". It is a 3-course meal at a great price. Some of us had the ribs and some of us had the catch of the day and some of us ordered from the regular menu. Everyone enjoyed their choices. The "rib special" included a good size starter salad, a full rack of ribs and a creme brulee dessert. All were tasty. The fish was excellent, as was the meat loaf meal. Our server David was energetic and helpful.
