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.

We took friends here for lunch and were not disappointed. Service is good. Excellent variety of choices. Sliders were excellent. Salads wonderful. Good choice of micro brews.

“They helped organize a Valentine's Day dinner for 16.”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

Staff were friendly and the food was very good. They provided a 3 course menu for our large group which helped the dinner go smoothly.

“Good food, lousy staff”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

A stroll around the grounds of the La Quinta Resort in its eponymous CA desert locale is delightful and as it was nearing lunch time our party of 9 appeared at the Twenty6 restaurant which offers both patio and interior seating. With no reservation we were confronted with a surly hostess and even with the patio nearly full and the inside nearly empty were kept waiting while the hostess announced in an annoyed tone that she would have to set a larger table. Our waiter appeared for drink orders and was shortly followed by a runner who filled the water glasses by pouring from a common bottle with her fingers wrapped on the neck in a manner that brought them into contact with the water... all without asking if we all wanted water in a desert in a state in a severe draught. One of our party went to the men's room and returned to announce that there were no paper towels nor a hand dryer. He quietly mentioned this to our server. Our server was pleasant enough but his command of the menu was limited and he offered no suggestions.

The hostess, servers and bartender meandered around all within view of the manager whose role seemed to consist of walking around paying no attention other than to smile at the female guests. Our food service was slow and a second round of drink orders went ignored by the bartender who was chatting up the only couple at the bar and further delayed in delivery by an inattentive server. When we waived down our server he looked our way, looked at the bartender and manager and then circled out of view.

The food, mostly salads and burgers was nicely presented and tasty but a bit pricey for the quality and certainly not worth accepting subpar service.

Following lunch, an hour after arriving, several of us went to the men's room where we encountered the manager washing his hands. We asked where the paper towels were and his answer was that he had ordered them. So manager and guests resorted to WHOP... wipe hands on pants... Could the manager have gone and fetched paper towels? Apparently not his job.

Good food, lousy service... avoid this place unless you're trapped there.

“Beautiful resort but disappointing restaurant”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

The landscape and atmosphere of the historic La Quinta resort is spectacular. Unfortunately I would not recommend this restaurant for lunch. Prices were high which is standard for resort restaurants in the area but the food was small in portion and very mediocre in taste. The service was surprisingly slow considering we were one of only a few tables. It took about 50 minutes to receive our food and it was sub par. The breakfast buffet looked delicious but is nearly $40 a person.

“Another excellent reasturant at La Quinta Resort”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

We experienced both breakfast and lunch at Twenty 6. Superb meals. The breakfast burrito menu is extensive and hearty. You won't be disappointed. Twenty 6 is located off the plaza, below the Adobe Grille.
