Adobe Grill Ratings and Reviews
It was my birthday celebration and they ...
It was my birthday celebration and they did not disappoint! In spite of an unexpected 45 person group that arrived an hour prior to our reserved time, we received excellent service. My dining companion selected the chicken mole and she said it was outstanding - the best mole she'd ever had. What made her meal even better was that they used boneless chicken. I chose the green salsa enchiladas made with Oaxacan cheese. This meal is served with rice and beans. My enchiladas were absolutely delicious. As an appetizer, we requested guacamole. It was tasty accompanied by roasted chili salsa that was flavorful and not overly spicy - very, very good. Since it was my birthday, the staff brought me Mexican bread pudding (capirutada) with dried cranberries and tangerines which had a delicate sweet and tangy taste. The bread pudding was served with a mole flavored ice cream that was unique and truly out of this world!

Went two days in a row. Expensive for Mexican. This is better Mexican food. Great Margaritas. I will be back. Nice to dine at the La Quinta resort.
Chicken Mole was very good and spicy, (how I like it). The salsa tasted as if it was roasted tomato, and very good. Margs are 16 dollars, and they had ample Tequila

I have been here several times, usually every Christmas as well, and I must say that now to charge $5 for chips and salsa is kinda nickel and diming us. I only eat fish and the seabass tacos were delicious! But everything is a la carte now...I think that's pretty lousy, no beans with the tacos?! Prices seem to have gone up without you getting more. I love the staff, always friendly. My bf lives in La Qunita and we enjoy the atmosphere at the Resort, but I'm not sure if I'll go back soon as the prices are becoming prohibitive.

This a resort. So this would not be my choice again for a dinner out. The place was noisy, service slow and portions of food small for the price and the menu was limited. I will give you that this was Christmas and my experience may have been better if not a holiday.

Since last here they got rid of the tortilla soup and good table side guacamole. Both very good dishes. Pour on the tequila flights were light. Took over an hour to get food from order. Chips at first were cold but next batch was warm and good. Seemed to have had to request items too much such as water and chips

Very disappointing, for the price you pay, you should expect. Better quality of food. Our tortillas , that came with our fajitas, were hard , one was very thick , one was broken up. Tortilla soup was ok , you use to be able to order a cup or bowl but now only one size $10. We have been visiting this restaurant every year and it getting worse, they are real cutting back on the quality. I think this will be our last visit .

Service was fine and our waitress was friendly. Overall, the food was fairly standard Mexican fare with nothing especially exciting. My tamales were average and the masa poorly spiced, although the fish tacos were tasty and well prepared. Beans and rice are lukewarm and uninspiring. What's the deal with the tasteless beans and the dried-out 'spanish' rice? Wine is wildly overpriced ... enjoy a beer or one of their Margaritas.
The corn was wonderful. Also loved the t ...
The corn was wonderful. Also loved the tableside guacamole preparation. Salads were flavorless. Chips and salsa good. Quesadilla a must. Fajitas disappointing. Enchiladas not great.
Also, there were extended periods of time where we never saw our waitress or waitstaff. The food delivery was very slow and they had to be reminded about several food items they forgot.
The atmosphere outside on the patio by the fireplace was very nice.
The prices were Astronomical for what you got. Not a good value.
Go for appetizers. Sit outside. Have a drink. Then you won't be disappointed.

15 - 20 years ago, this was an excellent Mexican restaurant that we often visited. We moved away and had not returned until this past week. Unfortunately, we found that it was no longer nearly as fine as we remembered. Service was indifferent as was the food. Our main courses arrived just a few minutes after we started to eat our first courses. The drinks lacked much flavor and the food also was mediocre. The restaurant looked the same. And cost the same. But the pleasure was gone.

For Mexican-American, the prices are really steep. The food is above average quality, but "nothing to write home about." Décor is typical for a Mexican restaurant. There is outdoor seating, which in the fall is great.

We love the beautiful setting of this restaurant. The food isn't as good as it was years ago when the menu offered 1 page each of classic dishes from each state in Mexico. But the smaller menu now has some great dishes including tamales and made at the table Guacamole.

ood was disappointing. Small portions, no sauces for the enchiladas or the chili relleno - really?? I wanted to try their supposedly famous tamales - but, they didn't have them. I asked about the next night and they said, "nope, no tamales." Hurried waiters. A pitcher of regular margaritas was $42. ouch. For three people, our bill came to almost $200 after tax and gratuity. Never had worse chicken mole. A chicken breast covered in some sort of sauce. It wasn't good. The rice and beans were okay. I love staying at the La Quinta Resort and Club. That is fabulous, but next time, we'll go out of the resort to dine.

The service is really spectacular and makes dining a real pleasure. Our waiter was Victor and he knew all about the menu and what we should try. His made-at-the table guacamole was the best ever!!!!! Service at our table was as we asked, food was hot, and beautifully prepared. We never felt hurried and can hardly wait to return.

Great location especially if seated outside to view mountains and resort. Food was good but nothing exceptional and very much like other Mexican restaurants but with more extensive menu selection. Had the tamales which they are known for but can't say they were any better than I've had at other Mexican restaurants. Great service, personable wait staff.
A bit on the noisy side unless seated outside.
Excellent service! Our waiter was fantas ...
Excellent service! Our waiter was fantastic. We had the fish and thought it was exceptional. The atmosphere was very nice. It was a little loud but not so loud that you couldn't hear each other talk. Overall a great experience.
