Restaurants in La Quinta for Christmas present to in-laws?

Hello! My in-laws recently moved to PGA West and I thought a good present would be some gift cards to some nice restaurants in the area for them to try. They literally have yet to go to any nice places. I'd like to stay away from chain places, but a good steak place would be great. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

LG's Prime steakhouse is locally owned and has a couple restaurants in the desert, one being at 111 and Washinton in La Quinta.

Also in LQ is Arnold Palmers. Gift cards, not likely...?

For a variety maybe try a gift card from the Kaiser Restaurant Group.

They own the Chop House, Hogs Breath, (which is a nice upstairs location overlooking old town LQ), and Jacalope Ranch in Indio, which has a great patio/parklike setting.The building itself is incredible to walk thru.

On the other end of the spectrum, if they like burgers, beer and wine and lots of TV's to watch sports, try Burgers and Beer in LQ.

The Cliff House, built into the side of a hill at Point Happy.
