“Great view of the JW property & good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

Fantastic place for brunch, the lunches and dinners are ok but not amazing. Overall, good food at decent prices but you could probably find better.

“Sunday brunch, at what is now " Rockwood Grill "”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012

Sunday brunch at the Desert Springs Marriott is a desert tradition. It has evolved over the years as the room continues to change. It has now been completely transformed into what is now called the " Rockwood Grill ". The room is beautiful, and the entrance area where the stairs are is much nicer and features a bar.
Unfortunately the food and the prices have also evolved. It is now close to $60 a person.
My favorite part of the brunch used to be the large selection of cold salads. Now it's a few lesser quality ones in a metal bin . Remember the different house cured salmons? Now it's just lox.
There are now only two hot entrees , a chicken and a fish. They had a " spring vegis " hot dish which consisted of potatoes and carrots only. Of course theY still have the standard pasta, sliced meat and omelette station. Fortunately the Sushi station survives.
The desserts are still great.
This remains the valleys best brunch, even if it isn't as good as it used to be.

“Not Great”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2012

We ate here and did the buffet and it was not that good at all. I expect more, especially when it costs $25/person for the buffet. Won't eat there again.
