Azur: Worth the price... maybe
A top-tier restaurant on the grounds of La Quinta Resort. My wife and I ate here in December of 2006. Expect very good food and expect to pay a lot for it. But ask if there are any large parties in advance!
The service is what you would expect, friendly and attentive, but I thought a little pompous as well. The real attraction here is the food. The salmon dish was cooked and seasoned perfectly. The deserts were tiny pieces of heaven, probably more worth the price tag than the entrees themselves.
The one mistake we made was coming here expecting a quiet romantic setting. The first hour of the meal was great, but then a company party was moved from the bar into the (apparently only) dining room, literally right behind us. The ensuing ruckus of tipsy mingling coworkers killed the mood pretty fast.

Las Casuelas Quinta: Above Average
My wife and I ate here with another couple in Dec. 2006. The food was generally very good, the Mahi Mahi was great. However one of our party got a steamed pork dish that was extremely dry - probably best to stay clear of that one.
Although the food was good, the dining room itself was quite noisy. Being in the main dining hall, the din of the other guests and the band made it very hard to talk across the table. As the night went on and the crowd thinned out it got a little better.
An above-average dining experience, but a loud atmosphere.
