Adobe Grill Ratings and Reviews
This is a good hotel restaurant and can be very busy so make a reservation if you think you'll be going at a popular time. they have wonderful live music and the cocktails are fantastic. I love the passionfruit sangria. The service is very friendly and they are super helpful. I went with a small group and we all had a great time. There is a good energy to the place and it attracts a great crowd. they have lots of outdoor seating but there are heaters for when it is cold so we ate outside and were perfectly comfortable even on a cold night. Ask for a table with a heater and you'll be set!
Adobe Grille is one of my favorite restaurants in the desert whether dining with friends, family, spouse or solo. The new menu threw me at first, I miss my choice of tamales as did my son who is a vegetarian- so teaming the vegetarian tamale with the pork tamale was problematic. After much resistance, the table side guacamole is on the menu once again - thankfully. The food is excellent quality, the blue corn vegetarian tamale was a delicious, fish tacos were good but not the best. Desert choices such as churros or flan are no longer available but the homemade ice cream is delicious. Of course the service (Vicktor) was excellent.
We had been to this restaurant on many occasions for dinner but this time we went for lunch on Sunday> We were disappointed to find out that the regular menu was not available and only a brunch menu was available. We had driven 45 minutes to the restaurant so we decided to stay. Let me say this was a good choice. I had the chicken quesadilla and it happened to be one of the best I had ever eaten. We sat outside and having this meal coupled with a marguerita and daytime temperatures in the low 70s it was the perfect brunch event
The guacamole and chips were wonderful as an appetizer. The menu was not overwhelming in size but offered lots of options. Drinks and food were delivered in a timely fashion although the restaurant was very busy that night. We will likely dine here again when we return to La Quinta.
We have eaten at Adobe Grill many times over a number of years and food and drinks continue to get worse with time. We love the atmosphere of la Quinta resort but feel food options have become much less tasty overtime. On recent trip we we're disappointed that they no longer served tableside guacamole, one of our favorites. Replacement was nowhere near as good. Margaritas also always seem somewhat watered down.
Adobe Grill used to be our favorite go to spot when visiting the desert. However, this last time was very different and disappointing. When we first arrived, we were told that there was no longer table side guacamole (made at the table for you and customizable) and were brought a small helping of average guacamole. We could overhear another table being told that their favorite shrimp dish was no longer on the menu either. The tamale options were much more limited to a vegetarian option (cheese and peppers) and a meat (pork) tamale. Unfortunately, the tamales didn't hold up to the original tamale's flavors.
Overall, this is still a good Mexican restaurant but has lost the special touch that made it more unique. The staff was beyond friendly and helpful and deserve a good review.
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 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.
