Great place to meet friends and chat, not to mention having a great dinner, especially with the prime rib special. Excellent servers that recognize old friends.

What a delight! We had the loveliest dinner with great service on a beautiful evening. Well mixed drinks, terrific beet salad, not to miss. The pasta dish was delicious, great steak as well. We will be back when in the area.

The food and drinks on Valentine’s Day were very good. Great martinis and delicious salmon for me and prime rib for my spouse. Also the Caesar Salad had the freshest, most crispy iceberg lettuce we have had for a while.

I ordered a salad and flatbread to come at the same time. Salad never came and our server sort of disappeared. Flatbread was mediocre at best. Probably won’t return to this restaurant even though we love staying at Shadow Ridge.

We had a group of 8 and all decided to share the full rack of ribs special. We ordered different sides and the staff kept it all straight. One of us wondered about the salmon and what polenta was. The waiter heard her musings and brought her a sample.

We have eaten here a number of times over the past five years. The service is always wonderful. The food varies from good to very good to really yummy. The prices are reasonable. Lots of TVs if you like sports [not my thing] but the sound is low or off, so conversation is pleasant.

Food was very good and reasonably priced.
We asked to move from our original table because of a rowdy crowd watching football.
We moved to the other side of the restaurant only to given the only available table next to three toddlers, one of which was a screamer.

We didn’t even sit down when the toddler started shriekly screaming, and the hostess said “sorry” as she held our chairs out to sit down.

I guess bad timing, but since it is a timeshare resort there are many families. The only one screaming was right next to us unfortunately.

This is a great place for a burger or sandwich after a round of golf. The onion rings are outstanding! It's a functional place for dinner but nothing special in the context of wonderful restaurants nearby.

Our food was fine. Prime rib was delicious as was the salmon. My problem was with the cost of drinks. My husband had a $7 Coors Light and my well vodka and soda was over $9. Absolutely out of line and will make us choose differently when we want a meal out.

We enjoyed 2 meals at the grill during the week and both were pretty good for quality and quanity.
The service fvrom our server, Jamine, was to be remembered for her attentiveness and attitude. She made the experience 5 star. We also had a good experience with the server, Nelson. We will return when in the area. Also there is a great view of the golf course from the outside patio.

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 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.

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.
