Sitting in the dining room behind the band and right next to the connecting door was so loud that my wife and I could barely talk, also, it was cold as the door was opened frequently. Food was great, table really bad. Perhaps with a little creative re-arranging you could eliminate that location.

This was our first visit and it was fabulous! The service was fantastic and the food was excellent. There were for if us and the rack of lamb, chicken and shrimp pasta are all recommended
We also tried the bacon wrapped dates, onion soup and beet salad and would also recommend. The ambiance is refined and old school in the dining room. We peeked into the lounge and outdoor space and would recommend either of those areas also we look forward to coming again

We so enjoyed our meal tonight. I think
Our table was in a spot where more than one server tag-teamed, resulting in somewhat of a slow start. Once we ordered, food was excellent!!!

Everything about this restaurant was top notch. The Caesar salad was delicious with the addition of anchovies. I had the Barbeque ribs that were flavorful and my husband had the meatloaf which he thoroughly enjoyed. The atmosphere with guitar player was romantic and enjoyable. The coconut cream pie topped off the dinner exquisitely. I highly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion as it is a little pricey.

Potato was cold and had been precooked and microwaved. When I told the waitress it was cold she had it re-microwaved instead of replacing it. Steak was ordered medium but came rare. Server did not have great attitude.

There were eight people in our party. We had requested the patio but the rain in Palm Desert forced all to be seated inside. We ended up being seated in the bar. The food and service were great but the noise level was high and we had a hard time communicating with those seated at the opposite end of the table!
No one complained and we made the best of our evening!

This is the second time I've taken my husband here for his birthday because we feel it is so special. The food and service has been outstanding. We did ask to be re-seated this time because we were in the brick ceiling room and a large crowd came in and we could not hear each other (4 of us) . The hostess and waitress moved us with no problem. The prime rib was just perfect. Thanks for a great evening.

It was not what we expected. The Caesar Salad was not tasty and the filet Mignon we ate much better in other Steakhouses. For 155$ we were not happy!

We enjoyed our evening at Arnie’s. The food was delicious and
the service was very good. Our table was a little exposed as far
as people walking by. I will now know to request a corner table.
Thanks so much.

As always, EVERYTHING was as expected--totally awesome. We had a houseguest who asked where he could take us out to dinner, and when we suggested Arnold Palmer's, he was intrigued; but frankly, I think he was expecting a neighborhood coffee-shop-type of neighborhood golf-themed place. He was absolutely blown away by the ambiance, food, service, etc. And he said when he visits next year, I should make a reservation in advance of his visit, as he's not going to try anywhere else!

We actually asked to have our table moved twice, once because it was very cold the night we were there and someone in the party was not comfortable, they moved us indoors but it was so noisy that someone else wanted to leave. We spoke with the hostess who then put us back out side with another heater and blankets. It was wonderful! The patio was great and food excellent. Everyone enjoyed ourselves and then went above and beyond so that we all were comfortable. I would highly recommend Arnold Palmer for the service and food. Great value!!!

This was an average restaurant which served average food.
My ribs were good, my wife’s Branzino was just average and a little over cooked.
Our server was wonderful.
The ambience was poor to do the very loud environment. If it wasn’t for that we might’ve given it a four star

We had a nice table for 2 outside by the fire pit. Our waiter, Caesar, was terrific. The fish special was fantastic. I'm glad they took beef stroganoff off the menu because I would have ordered that and missed the fish. Good cocktails too. We dropped $140 plus tip. Not too bad. Way, way WAY better than the Mexican restaurant at La Quinta Resort we went to the night before for the same price.

This is a good spot for a date, special occasion, or a boys golf trip dinner. I'll be back some day.

We had a wonderful dining experience at Arnold Palmer's! While many may go there for the name recognition, we went based upon the menu we reviewed on line, and the favorable reviews. We loved it! The staff were all friendly, our waiter was friendly, knew the menu well, as well as knew the wine list [he made a recommendation for a bottle of wine that we enjoyed.] Food was wonderful. A great dining option when you're in the area--we'll definitely go back!

We loved the memorabilia and atmosphere. The food was good. One huge complaint. The bison chop was a special, along with a fish dish. They told us the price of the fish. At the last minute we decided to try the bison chop for 2! That was suppose to be 32 ounces. The chop was good but could not have been more than 16-18 ounces of meat. The waitress even said people comment that it doesn’t seem like 32 ounces. Then When the bill came, it was $125 for the chop. We seem to think they didn’t mention the price of that special on purpose. The meal was good but not THaT good. The couple we were with confirmed that the waitress did not tell us the price of the bison chop, although she said she always tells the customers. The waitress was otherwise very good. Unfortunately she did not get the tip she probably expected for the price of that meal. We would go back, but would definitely ask questions about prices.

This was our first experience at Arnold Palmer’s Restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised by great service and delicious food. The menu offers a wide variety of appetizers, salads, and mains. We shared a shrimp cocktail, strawberry and date salad, and the halibut piccata. All were excellent. We ordered wine by the glass, and found decent reds and whites to our liking. We’ll definitely return.

I had the meatloaf and my husband had the prime rib, both dishes were perfectly prepared. This will be a place we will come back to when we are back in the area.
