Delightful place to enjoy dinner with friends. The patio is the perfect blend of outdoor ambience and relaxing music. The tour of the Palmer Room made it truly an evening to remember.

This was one of the worst dining experiences we have ever had.
We chose Arnold Palmers for our anniversary dinner with a nice romantic evening. The table next to us was obnoxious and didn’t care if other people were trying to enjoy their dinner. We asked the manager James to ask them to be considerate of other people dining and the manager wasn’t professional enough to handle it and told us we could leave instead.
When did the restaurant world become so unprofessional? Why is it ok for ONE table to make the surrounding tables uncomfortable?

Outdoor seating is lovely. My favorite part is listening to guitarist Mark Linford play. He makes the experience special. Very professionally run. My dinner choice was interrupted by swarms of flies which made leisurely dining impossible. I was given a citronella candle which helped slightly. Otherwise it was a lovely evening. Good service.

Bellisimo! The server was OUTSTANDING! He suggested as an entrée Branzino which is European Sea Bass frim Italy waters. The way it was prepared was totally AWESOME and VERY DELICIOUS!
He explained that you get a whole fish that has the head removed and then the bone inside. Prior to broiling the Chef creates a Scallop Mouse'. He then fills a cake icing decorator with the Scallop Mouse'. Then he fills the entire fish cavity with it and broils the entire fish. When one eats the preparation you will close your eyes and know that your palate has entered heaven.

I took my 90-year old Dad, step-mom and brother to dinner for their last night in Palm Springs for this vacation. Arnold Palmer's did not disappoint! Three of us ordered fish and all were expertly prepared and delicious. My brother ordered the prime rib which was a HUGE amount of beef and he loved every bite! Staff were all very helpful as my dad is a bit slow and uses a rolling walker - they held each door - no matter how long it took for my dad to get through it! Loved it. Thank you to all - and to our waiter, Cesare, as well.

We were a party of four and the food everyone was happy about except myself. I had the pork ribs that were very dry and the had a very tough crusty section on top. They had been overcooked and then had BBQ sauce poured over top. A very poor quality entree for a top notch restaurant.

Dined here recently for the first time. Service was good, ambience nice ( except for the blinding sun shining through the window onto us ... solar shade would be helpful ). I ordered the halibut piccata. The fish was good, ample portion, however, I didn’t care for the lemon caper wine sauce , which usually is my favorite. It was less like a lemon wine sauce & more like a creamy sauce, too thick & heavy. I would prefer a lighter, more lemony wine sauce. The herb crusted salmon was very good. In summary, I will visit again soon since it’s a nice restaurant with a very good menu, lots of interesting choices.

Although we were unable to be seated on the lovely outdoor patio this night, we had a corner table inside that we were able to hear our own conversation. The food was presented and prepared perfectly and our wait people were professional and personable. Our guests were suitably impressed with our choice of restaurant but I will try to make our reservations earlier next time so we too may enjoy that lovely patio.

Lovely patio, although quite noisy. Food was good, not great, and definitely overpriced, which was to be expected ss It caters to tourists. Our server was exceptional, and did her best to serve our food in a timely manner. We waited for close to an hour for our entrees. There were lots of large parties that evening, so the kitchen could have been backed up.

We look forward to Palmer’s every year when we come to the desert. Husband had filet. I had salmon. His filet was amazing! My salmon a bit dry. Even with this disappointment, we ordered desserts: coconut pie and butter cake. DO NOT leave there without trying one or both! By far the best part of the meal.
