ISO place for wife's birthday in Palm Desert/La Quinta area

wpage Sep 19, 2011 02:22 PM

My wife and I are going to La Quinta for her birthday in two weeks and I am looking for a nice place in the Palm Desert to La Quinta area for a dinner (something other than a steakhouse). I don't expect it to be at the level of the better places in LA, but I also don't want to feel that the price had no relation to quality as I sometimes find in the desert. Also, looking for a good casual place (such as Mexican) for our other dinner. Thanks

    Solano's in Old Town La Quita is casual, romantic and nice. Off-season, you don't need reservations. The short ribs are perfect. The tortila coated fish is a find. Paco, a co-owner, is friendly and helpful. The walls are covered with local art. Free parking. You will have a good time.
