Adobe Grill Ratings and Reviews

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 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.

You don't have to be a guest at the La Quinta resort to enjoy this great restaurant. As a "local", we pass on the places designed for tourists and choose Adobe Grill for excellent Mexican food. Everything is made fresh each day (no commercial microwaves) and a full bar with a great selection of tequila.
Noise level was extreme. Food and drink ...
Noise level was extreme. Food and drink were mediocre. The combination of wait staff carrying food & drink to the patio and returning wait staff carrying dirty dishes and patrons being shown to their tables all meeting head on next to our table was like being at Grand Central Station at rush hour. All in all not a good experience.

This is a cool little Mexican restaurant at LA Quinta Resort. The outdoor seating has beautiful mountain view but beware of the summer heat. Margarita's were tasty but not outstanding. The food was delicious but a bit on the small serving side. My mole chicken had the best sauce ever. I would have liked to see more sides like guacamole included in the price. Good cocktail menu and white wines...reds could be expanded slightly.

As soon as you walk into the restaurant you are greeted with friendly staff and a lovely ambiance that looks and feels authentic. while the dining area is a bit over the top with the Mexican theme, as indicated with the tower of liquor in the middle of the dining room, it is an amazing Mexican themed restaurant. the live music is astoundingly beautiful. the artists rendition of both popular songs as well as personal favorites of him feel as though they want to be there to entertain you. the food we received was beautifully crafted on authentic plated that resonated with the rest of the restaurant in terms of beauty.
the staff, as lovely as they are, kept an honest and genuine smile throughout or stay at the restaurant. i have not seen a better we kept staff, and the only staff that i feel will out preform them is the same staff in the future.
the scenery is overall breathtaking, the overlook you see on a cloudy day while the sunsets is only reminiscent of a scene from The Great Gatsby. with the sun turning the clouds different colors and the deliciousness of the food we ordered, the pair was unbelievable. this restaurant, and the others on the La Quinta Property, truly focus on what is important. the joy one gets from walking across the property gazing at the wondrous sights can only be described as breathtaking.

Requested a quiet table and was seated in a smaller rear room Before our entree was served the four tops were reconfigured to seat a group of 20 next to us. We couldn't talk across the the table due to the noise level. Won't sit inside again ever, unfortunately outside temp on the porch over 100.

No air conditioning in back room. We all were sweating through our shirts. Had to ask to move to main dining area. Main dining area is SO LOUD. Can barely hear people at your own table. Food sub par. Everyone at our table was very disappointed with the slop on each of our plates. Annoyed we paid such high prices for awful tasting food [slop] served in such small portions.

Went with a group of girlfriends for the 2nd year in. A row. Every one enjoyed their meal. They have a $15 corkage fee which was helpful in keeping our bill lower. Would highly recommend reservations on weekends. Great mountain views from main dining room and a large bar area if you just want a cocktail and appetizers.

I have eaten at this place before, and the food was worth the second trip. This time our service was horrible. We had a reservation, yet were seated in the rear of the restaurant as though we were not fit for the main dining room. I was there with my best friend for a mom-getaway weekend. Our server was rude and never checked on us. Quite frankly neither did any one else. We were in a forgotten part of the restaurant. When our server created us, she was unfriendly and almost seemed annoyed that she had to take care of our table. My friend and I are not demanding patrons. We simply wanted a warm smile and a friendly attitude. This server was rude and sassy. I know a thing or two about good service in a restaurant as I have over 6 years experience serving and bartending. Based on our last experience, I would rather dine elsewhere. Some where I can be treated like a customer, and giving the time of day by our server. We were very displeased with our visit.
Memorial Day Weekend Dinner
We were spending Memorial Day in La Quinta and had a horrible dining experience the night before in Palm Springs at Las Casuelas Terraza. Ended up walking out of the place. On the other hand, the Adobe Grill in La Quinta was fabulous. Our server, Maria, was hysterical! She was such a lot of fun and very attentive. We enjoyed sitting out on the patio, the food was very good and overall, our dining experience was wonderful. We would definitely go back next time we are in La Quinta!!
