Arnold Palmer's Restaurant
Arnold Palmer’s Restaurant features Progressive American cuisine, including fresh seafood, steaks, and some of Arnie’s great comfort foods superbly prepared by Chef Matthew Briggs. This one-of-a-kind restaurant features an impressive wine room that houses 2,500 bottles of wine and an exclusive Chef’s Table for special events. The extensive newly remodeled patio offers live entertainment every night featuring Mark Linford and stunning views of the Santa Rosa Mountains.
We decided to sit on the bar side of the patio since it was still happy hour. This was during the covid-19 early breakout. Music was great! We were space 30 ft apart from other diners so no chance of connecting with others from adjacent tables. Food was 👍. Ordered the fish tacos - 1 was very fishy tasting. The guys ordered the fish & chips. Both enjoyed them. Another ordered a salad from the dinner menu and truffle fries (delicious!!)
Everything was great! Food, service from John, music from Mark, and the outdoor patio were all truly excellent! Made my husband’s birthday very special!
Spectacular service as always from Cory. The salmon was delicious and the cauliflower steak was delicious. I recommend the Brussels sprouts and the bacon wrapped dates as an appetizer. The service here and the food never disappoint.
The service was fabulous in the bar. We went early to avoid the crowds. Had the pub burger and it was good. My husband had the ribs and said they were great. He said next time it’s meatloaf or pork chops which were both highly recommended
Very nice place but noise level was so high we couldn't hear our guests at the same table.Not sure why the review will not let me say that the noise level was at the highest. I do recall.
They were out of the vegetarian entree. Dessert didn't arrive for over twenty minutes and had to re-ask the waitress to bring it.
We had guests from out of town and I had made reservations on OpenTable. As we enter the restaurant we were not welcomed and when I checked in I said my name in for 4 people. The hostess in a very curt manner said it’s for two people. I said if it says for two that I made a big mistake. She continued to repeat you made it for two on open table and was very curt. We sat and waited and then we were accommodated. The hostess needed a definite attitude adjustment to be working in the service industry. It could’ve been handled in a much more appropriate way. We have since been back and had our usual wonderful experience. That particular hostess was not there.
Great experience from the valet at arrival, to the hostess and throughout dinner. Our server Dariann was fantastic. The menu is diverse, the food is excellent, wine list is extensive and the patio may be the best in La Quinta. We will be back many times.
It is an annual tradition to celebrate our anniversary at “Arnies”. They never disappoint. The food, the service, the ambiance. . .everything is perfect.
Birthday party for my husband We had a server named Brianna and she was one of the best servers we have ever had!! Made our night
Wonderful place. Would have loved to be outside, but all was okay.
One of my favorites...top of my list to visit everytime I'm in the desert. Great food, service, ambiance, bar...and Arnie memorabilia! Love it!
It's become our annual "go to" place in the Cochella Valley because of the quality of the food, the staff, the live music and the ambience. Arnold would be proud!!
Every thing was ok. Waiter seemed like a guy that would rather be somewhere else. Was looking off to other places when telling of specials and menu. That just kind air irked me
I love the ambiance. Great food. Terrific entertainment outside. A great guitar soloist outside. entertaining but not loud
One of our favorite restaurants. Great food. Great atmosphere. Great service.
Love everything about Arnold Palmer’s!
Excellent as always
New went to Arnold Palmer's for a 97th birthday dinner celebration for my dad. Everything was excellent, including the guitar player outside. The food awesome and the service quite good.
Magical evening! Excellent food, service, & music!
Great service, waiter went above and beyond and was very real and personable.
Andy was great my friends from out of town loved it !
Terrible food , happy hour . Really fidsppointing
Positive impression from bar to dining room... Professional bartenders and servers.
Free valet parking is also a nice touch.
Lovely place to enjoy a wonderful dinner with my husband.
We love to take Guests here when visiting from out of town. Love the outside dining....gorgeous!! Beautiful palm trees and outdoor heaters make it perfect. They even provide blankets if needed.
Great menu! My husband loves the meatloaf!
They are great about splitting salads etc which is nice. They also have an amazing happy hour....great value but in a different area of the restaurant!
Love the entertainment outside. Wow, he is extremely talented and very fun to watch and listen to. The outside is very nice without being too romantic. Service was great but a little disappointed in the food. Meatloaf was blah and tuna was over-cooked (my bad since I did not send it back but only mentioned it to the server after the meal) but was still quite good. Sauce was tasty but there were not many small potatoes or beans in it. The ribs and fries were really good, though. All in all, wonderful evening with outstanding entertainment! Would definitely recommend.
A fun place to go, a lot of comfort food so not a good place if you are looking for healthy options.
I had a wonderful birthday celebration with my husband at Arnold Palmer's Restaurant. I loved the ambience, and the service. The food was exceptional. We had scallops and can't wait to return and try more dishes.
Excellent menu and great service make this location a special place. Beautiful surroundings and nice musical addition.
Dined outdoors and enjoyed the music
Always the best
We dined in the dining room, which is decorated with incredible paintings and pictures of Arnold, which alerts you to the touch of class you are about to experience. The service is perfect, not too much and not too little. The Menu is packed with delectable choices and the wine list is extensive. Starters are extensive and by our experience delectable. Our entrees, Branzino, White Fish, Jidori Chicken and Arnold's Meat Loaf were all scrumptious. A truly lovely dining experience.
We enjoyed our experience and would come again and recommend it to every one!
Usually like outside but a little cool
Service was outstanding!
Sat in the carpeted quiet part of restaurant. Wonderful steak and seafood dishes. Enjoyed the back room beyond the bar with memorabilia. Excellent service.
Service was exceptional and nice atmosphere but food doesn’t have us coming back anytime soon. In our group we ordered the bbq ribs (good sauce but not fall off the bone), scallops were overdone, sea bass special was good and pork chop rated the best. Salted Carmel cheesecake special was 5 stars!! Knowing what I know now, I’d go back for coffee and dessert.
Great ambience with live music!
food waas very nice and the music was very tasteful and quiet. The bacon wrapped dates were wonderful and my pork chop was to die for, her scallops were equally nice. We used to say that Mitch's was the best in the valley but now were can say Arnold Palmer's certainly up to the task as one of our favorites in the area.
Outstanding, we will be back!
