Desert Sage Restaurant Review

: Located in La Quinta Cove, near Old Town La Quinta, is this delightful discovery that specializes in fresh seafood and cuts of beef. The menu offers mains such as succulent crab cakes, Kobe-style beef lasagna, cast iron-grilled lamb loin, lemon chicken with preserved lemon, and aged rib-eye. Red wine-braised beef short ribs is a signature dish. Lunchtime brings nine fresh soups and a toppings bar. Happy hour is a daily celebration from 4 p.m-7 p.m., when prices roll back and people roll in. Live entertainment and a lively ambience make Desert Sage a local favorite.
