Great for everyone.
Always enjoy a night at Arnold Palmer's. I have gone with couples, girlfriends and taken my whole family. My kids even will go back to this "fancy" restaurant. I will say the first time I went with the kids I didn't know about ordering for them off the bar menu, when I went again with another family we were able to do that which made a huge difference.

Palmer's patio is a fave!
Nothing is more glorious than al fresco dinning on a warm desert night... and Palmer's patio is the best!! Thank you VERY MUCH for having corned beef on the menu for St. Patty's! We also enjoyed your guitar/piano player immensely. Our only critique really would be better music outside, or maybe the guitar/piano player's music outside??! (The 40's tunes outside are just too dated and I don't think the crowd at Palmer's is THAT old?:)

We were in the room with the rounded brick ceiling which was elegantly masculine and comfortable when we first arrived. Unfortunately, there was a lady who arrived shortly thereafter who was SO loud that her voice dominated the room. I'm not sure if it was just her voice or if the accoustics contributed.

We enjoyed our dinner at Arnold
We enjoyed our dinner at Arnold Palmer's restaurant. I did put on my reservation that we
preferred outdoor seating, but when the restaurant called to confirm my reservation, I
was told we were going to be seated inside. When we arrived, they did seat us outside near
the door. It was a busy spot where several very young "unsupervised" kids congregated and
were arguing about the mini golf. I thought we were going to get hit with one of their clubs
as they were swinging them around... ?
There were several open tables outside, so I'm not quite sure how they decide who is seated
where on the patio.
Overall, the food was good, the waiter was attentive and it was an enjoyable evening

Fabulous, our best meal of
Fabulous, our best meal of the desert. Took two kids (11 and 9) who were treated perfectly. we didn't expect a children's menu and planned on them ordering an adult portion which was fine. Others had their chilldren eat sides of pasta which is a shame. We assume families are not their prime focus but are still made welcome.
Great experience, lovely interior and kids enjoyed the putting green.
When we are next in the area we will be sure to visit.

We had been to Arnie's before
We had been to Arnie's before on a Friday during high season- not one of our better dining experiences. Very noisy and the servicers were slammed,but my husband has had some wonderful scallops so we decided to give it another try. I'm so glad we did! This time we were there on a Thursday around 5:00 and it's towards the end of tourist season. Much different experience! John, our waiter was very friendly and attentive. The food was excellent and the view is beautiful. Ask for outside seating if the weather is pleasant. You do get some road noise since it's on a busy street, but that will soon fade into the background. Enjoy-

Outstanding restaurant.....definitely off the grid.

A must dining spot when in La Quinta. Menu is very diverse. Excellent wine list. Sunday fried chicken special and Arnie's meat loaf are good selections for those wanting just a solid traditional meal. Other options are also top shelf.

Steak and service
Best steak (10 once filet) I ever had....and I have had a lot. The service was exceptional from the floor manager to the bidder. We will be back.
5/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Restaurant Up to Par
We wanted to try Arnold Palmers, so we thought that going during restaurant week was a great time to try it. Very friendly people at the bar (great vibe) and the service and food were great. Great filet and outstanding pork chop! Sometimes during restaurant week at other restaurants the food is not always up to par (no pun intended) but it was top notch. We will definitely return and it will not necessarily be during restaurant week. The menu has a lot of great selections that we still want to try.

This was our first time at this restaurant. The atmosphere and decor were appealing. The service was very friendly and efficient. Dinner was served promptly and was presented in a very appealing manner.
We would go back and recommend it to friends.

This was our second time dining in 2 weeks. We enjoyed it so much the first time that we came back again. And once again, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. This may now be our local favorite!

Whether you're looking for
Whether you're looking for a good summer 'Happy Hour' deal (which at Palmer's runs from 4.00-7.00pm) or a later dinner with friends, this is the place to go....Wonderful ambience, excellent service, and many different areas in which to sit depending on one's mood - choose the bar if you'd like to listen to live music while you dine, or the outdoor patio area on a wonderful moonlit evening, or several options inside where the lighting is excellent...
8/20/2013 5:00:00 PM
This was our second visit to Arnold Palmers beautiful restaurant. The setting is warm and inviting. Their wine room is great for groups and they set a large table with linens and wine glasses to make everyone feel at home.
8/29/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great Lamb Chops
The Pub Fare Fish and Chips were so-so. The Lamb Chops from the special of the day menu were excellent and cooked perfectly. The creme brûlée was the best choice from the dessert menu. The waiter was very attentive and we were not rushed during our meal.

Great Food and Meeting Place
Arnold Palmer's restaurant in La Quinta is definitely one of the best places to eat in the Coachella Valley.
The bar is quite lively with entertainment on most nights. The restaurant is quiet, intimate and comfortable.
The food is varied and excellent in taste, preparation, presentation and service. Excel;lent wine selection, and the private label selection is very good. If you don't do alcohol, be sure to try the famous Arnold Palmer -- a mixture of Ice Tea and Lemonade -- a perfect thirst quencher.
Even that complimentary valet parking attendants bend over backwards to be accommodating.
9/19/2013 5:00:00 PM
My husband and I wanted to celebrate being back in the Desert so we booked a table here since it's one of our favorite restaurants in the area. I realize it's a little early in the season so I wasn't sure if they would meet their usual high standards but they certainly did. The food was fresh and beautifully presented. Best of all, we were the only people sitting on the beautiful patio! It was as if we had reserved the entire place for ourselves! Staff was attentive, but not hovering. Not everyone will get this same experience, but you will have the same wonderful food and service. Just remember that weekends during high season can get booked quickly so I recommend weeknight dining if your schedule allows.
9/24/2013 5:00:00 PM
Although the restaurant is themed toward AP's career, and has more memorabilia than you could shake a stick at, it was surprisingly romantic. The outdoor dining experience is wonderful. It's closed off to the street and offers a quiet dining experience. The facility has a bar, but you wouldn't know based on the respectful nature of the guests. The food was great, the ambiance and service are expectant of a first class establishment. Although a bit expensive, the experience is well worth the cost.

Like being in a dream
The setting for dinner at Arnolds is so beautiful. You can choose outside where the lights dance in the background and the fire burns brightly or inside where it's quite but elegantly set. They have a wonderful wine room for larger parties.
The food is always good and has never let us down.

Quiet dinner with friends
We dine at Arnold Palmer's 3-5 times per season. We usually take golfing friends to the restaurant who are interested in the memorabilia. We find the food quality to be inconsistent - this was actually the best all around meal we have ever had. We had the fried chicken special, a fish dish and the roasted chicken; all tasty and cooked perfectly. We recommend sitting outside for a less formal dining experience. Service is consistently very good.

We have always had a great meal with service to match. Meatloaf is to divine.if you are a fan of golf, the pictures on the walls tell a story of what must be a fantastic life by Mr Palmer........

Amazing service and the best "Palmer Chips" with blue cheese dressing. The scallops are mouthwatering along with their steacks. Live music in the bar can be heard in dining rooms~fabulous Or listen in the bar~you get to dance. Love this restaurant. La Quinta Gem.

Great dining experience
We went to the restaurant on the recommendation of a friend. We were not disappointed. Everyone in our party raved about their meal. Well done.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Loved the specials
Haven't eaten in Arnold Palmers for a while but was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the meal. There were six in our party and none of us were disappointed. The sea bass special was outstanding. The food didn't arrive particularly quickly but it was worth waiting for, but it was a beautiful evening and we didn't feel rushed
The bacon- wrapped dates were the best we'd ever eaten.
We 'll be back soon. Just one little thing. Eating outside on the patio is really nice but there's not much heat coming from the patio heaters.
