“Nice Atmosphere, Great Food”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

We just enjoy going here especially at Happy Hour. The food and service are excellent. At Happy Hour they offer small plates. The beef was wonderful and their french fries are awesome.

“Beautiful Setting, great food”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

We went there on Mother's Day and I enjoyed the duck special. Hmmmm! We went back a couple of weeks later and had another wonderful meal. Sitting on the patio under lovely trees on a warm but pleasant evening is so relaxing.

“Fine fare in la Quinta”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

We ate here twice while we were in la Quinta for business. The service was friendly, more so the first time, the portions large, and the food tasty. I had some nice cold soup appetizers. My wife had crab cakes (md crab) were ok, but they had too much filler. Our friend had the ahi tuna appetizer and she was quite please. I had the flat iron steak twice. It was cooked correctly with a nice pepper coating. The French fries with a hint of truffle oil were great. Our friends enjoyed the salmon and a sea bass special. A pleasant spot for dinner.
