I had the best chicken lettuce wraps. I enjoyed them so much that I am taking the time to post. Also had some entertaining conversation with people at the bar.

This is a great venue for hungry golfers prior to teeing off. Veronica was very helpful in creating a custom Burrito that took the edge off our early morning hunger. The Greg Norman clubhouse is the most remote of all the PGA West courses. I suggest using your GPS and or AAA roadmap.

The food was very good and just what's needed after a long hard round of golf on a stunning course. The service was good, despite how busy it was, and the food was good.

Asian Chicken Salad, the little chucks of chicken were very salty. The calamari seemed to have been frozen and then cooked, not horrible, but when combined with watery tomato purée, that was presented as cocktail sauce, I might as well have been eating fried damp bread crumbs. Nice building and fixtures.

Since the last time we ate at Ernie's some while ago the menu selections have improved. For dinner, we had a nice bottle of Chardonnay wine ($41.00), Half Chinese Salad ($9.95)... which was good sized and Pesto Pasta with grilled chicken ($14.95). Both dishes were delicious. Our waiter, Cesar< was attentive and provided very good service.

Ernie's of course can be found out at PGA West in La Quinta at the public clubhouse. It's really a great place to dine for breakfast, lunch or dinner (during the season). It kind of has a manly flavor to it and the food presentation is always outstanding. If you have out of town guests is is a great place... More

This restaurant has inside (rather noisy) and outside on the deck there are plenty of umbrellas so you can escape the sun. Try the tacos with tempura prawns sounds odd but great taste. A great view over the golf course.

First, the food we received as ordered was fabulous; however, the food received over cooked and missing extras was bad. The server tried to fix it, but 20 minutes later the replacement was overdue and we were ready to leave. The second drink order was completely wrong and overall, the service was super slow. Beautiful setting, fabulous menu that just... More

For years I was complaining, this venue is gorgeous , but the dinners were such a disappointment , well it's so much better today. I had the best lentil soup last Saturday , a meal by itself, tasting home cooked.
