Description: Focusing on the American Classics, a step into Twenty6 is like a step back in time. Reminiscent of an American Classic Grill, this Palm Springs area restaurant upholds its prestige and distinction by serving "real" food, such as a variety of fresh takes on Eggs Benedict for breakfast, BLTs and Hand Formed Burgers for lunch. Try a Filet Oscar for dinner, using the best and freshest product in season. Whether dining for business, romance or with family, Twenty6 provides a memorable experience for all.

“Hoighty Toity”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

The name should give it away. Twenty6 is the breakfast/lunch/dinner option at the La Quinta Resort. But instead of something like, "Maggie's Diner" or "All Day Grill", it has an upscale name to go along with upscale prices. In fairness, if you are staying at the La Quinta Resort, paying upscale rates, you should expect to pay upscale prices for this on-site location.

Even during the dog days of summer. this jack-of-all places gets busy. We were seated promptly this Sunday morning but the day before, the wait for lunch was quite long. While its purpose is to feed the masses, it is a relatively small restaurant with aspirations to be fine dining.

Four of us ordered breakfast. They offer a $24.95 buffet, but none of us wanted that much food. One of their breakfast claims to fame is about a dozen specialty eggs benedicts. I tried the smoked salmon benedict while my wife tried the "country" with sausage and gravy. I would tell you the salmon worked, the sausage & gravy not so much.

Our friends ordered the lox & bagel and the French toast. Both were deemed a success, particularly the lox & bagel. The French toast was two large pieces of Brioche bread that our friend could not even finish.

Needless to say the overall cost of the meal was on the expensive side. The ambiance, service and general feel of the place was quite good. I didn't mind going there one morning but it seemed to me to be a splurge rather than a necessity because of the cost and the need to bring traditional foods up another level. That might appeal to some foodies but there is also something to be said for a $6.95 Denny's grand slam. Nothing like that exists here.

“Too expensive for what you get”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012

This was not gourmet food by any means, it was just food. It was good but it was nothing to write home about. The personnel, though, were very nice, very friendly.

“This place is a big bust”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012

Went here for dinner with a group of 8. Food was horrible and very over priced-at least with Morgans in the resort the food is expensive but worth the money. My wife ordered chicken and literally was served a TV dinner. It was so bad it was laughable.
The ambience in this place is nil(probably in the season outside would be great).Our server and her helpers were excellant-the hostess at the door left alot to be desired(loud and rude). This might be a great place for happy hour outside during the season but I would never eat dinner here again.

“Average food - high prices”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

Stayed here for a business trip in the off-season. I thought the food to be quite average, yet pricey. Also, I found the staff to be rather stiff than accomodating. I wanted to stay and enjoy what was open at the resort in my off hours, but I found that I preferred to head to Old Town to look for something better and more personable.

“Adequate and nice, not special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2012

Twenty 6 is the name of one of the restaurant/bars at La Quinta Resort and Club. Love the resort! And this place is their main spot for breakfasts and lunch meals. The breakfast buffet generous with their offerings, but pricey...as resort restaurants can be. The best thing about the restaurant is that during the beautiful weather of 'the season' the outdoor patio is very nice place to have a meal. But in the scorching heat of summer, when eating inside with air-conditioning required, the restaurant just average. The room's decor, the selections on menu...it's all perfectly okay ... just nothing notable or really unique. Fortunately, the resort's Adobe Grill and Morgan's restaurants offer much nicer atmosphere's for dinner/evening options. The bar area at 26 does begin their Happy Hour at 3PM ... so if the scorching summer heat has you wanting the dark coolness of indoor airconditoning, this is the place!
