The ambience was delightful and the food was great! Positive vibes all around with a talented live musician.
Food and service were great. In this age of COVID we only felt marginally safe. Even though outdoors they pack a lot of people in there. We’ll go back next year.
The patio in the evening is wonderful! We very much enjoyed our dinners however without appetizers or wine (entrees and 3 desserts and 7 cocktails) our bill was about $600 for just 5 people, which I felt was quite high.
Food and service unbeatable.
Ribs Appetizer was fantastic. Branzino was excellent, Sea Bass was very good, but the best of them all was the coconut cream pie! Couple that with the spectacular outdoor setting and the alway phenomenal guitar player and it’s a special place to spend an anniversary (or any other pleasant weather night)
It would be nice if guests would wear masks as they walk around the restaurant.
Great restaurant. Sat outside and enjoyed every minute. Food was good, service was nice and efficient. Lots of birthdays happening around us. Very enjoyable evening.
Beautiful outdoor venue, that is very comfortable and accommodating. As usual, our waiter, Cory, outperformed in service. His service and consistently high quality food that is well presented keeps us coming back for more!
One of our favorite restaurants. Love the ambiance with the outdoor patio. And the musician is SO good! The service is excellent. The food is good, but not phenomenal. But still one of our favorite dining spots in the desert😎
Excellent service , great outdoor experience. Our waitress was very informative about our food choices. The food was fabulous and and served in a very timely manner. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys a great dining experience!
Arnold Palmer’s is always Excellent. Service , food, ambiance. My Go To restaurant.
Very nice....probably would be better to not have a candle on a birthday desert. Really shouldn’t be blowing on food....
Delicious food. Great service. Beautiful patio. Nice live entertainment.
What a beautiful ambiance - sitting outside - with lots of space between the tables. And, especially grateful for the our waiter - efficient - with a good sense of humor.
Also, the staff outside working in Valet.
The food was delicious. My partner was able to take half of his home.
I ordered the meatloaf which I haven't had in ages. Delicious - however, once I returned home, I had stomach cramps. Not sure if that was stomach issues, or maybe something in the meal did not agree with me.
Wonderful dining experience
Husband’s birthday. Amanda, our server, was wonderful.
What a beautiful night. Excellent service from Amanda. The filet and sea bass were fantastic! The atmosphere tops it all off with romantic live guitar playing. Love it at Arnolds!
Nice table, safely distanced, fantastic server, very good food, lovely ambience. It was nice to get out of the kitchen for a minute. We chose the right restaurant to do so.
A nice respite from the world's troubles. A wonderful NY sirloin steak, cooked perfectly. A wonderful waitress named Amanda and a perfect table next to the firepit. Just what I needed!
Excellent restaurant. Caesar is an excellent server! Music on the patio is lovely.
It’s a regular event for us. We always like coming to Arnold Palmer’s when we come down to the desert. Love the guitar player!
First time eating at Arnold Palmers restaurant, and it sure did not disappoint!!
With California still under heavy restrictions for indoor dining we were pleased to see tons of heaters for each table and a big fire pit on the patio. With it being so cold these days they have found a way to keep guests warm and comfortable throughout the dining experience.
The live music was wonderful and set the mood for a very nice evening.
Our server Amanda was fantastic! She stopped by frequently to check on us and was very sweet!
The food was PHENOMENAL!!!
We started off with calamari with a sweet Thai chili.
They had non alcoholic beer options for my significant other as well which we notice is not common in most restaurants and should be!
I ordered the pork chop with mashed potatoes, asparagus and a cherry glaze. It was so delicious! i would have placed a second order to go if our hotel had a fridge and microwave.
We also had the flat iron steak, which was cooked perfectly with great flavor.
The prices were very reasonable and our dinner and drinks for 2 did not break the bank, definitely a place where you can have weekly dinners or just special occasions.
All in all we definitely will be going to this restaurant on our upcoming trips!!
This restaurant is for sure our favourite in the Desert
The ambiance on the patio, live music, and service were great. However the food quality was a little on the average side. I ordered the $42 prime rib dinner. It was a hand size cut of prime rib with mash potatoes. The mash potatoes tasted like Idaho Spuds Instant potatoes seriously. Just over priced average food, still in search for a quality restaurant in the Desert that actually delivers great tasting food.
Having to serve outside the service and food were exceptional as always.
It was windy outside but everything was still great. John was our server and he was great. He remembered us from previous visits. He even remembered my granddaughters drink and she had only been there once. The live music is great!
The ambiance service and food were superior. The music on the patio was very subtle and enjoyable. It’s spendy but you get what you pay for. We will definitely return.
Wonderful all the way around. Always a great time and meal here when out in La Quinta.
The service by Cory was superb and the sea bass was fantastic. Everything was wonderful. The outdoor dinning is gorgeous and safe.
The staff was good but we had to tell him to slow down or we’d be finished in 45 mins
When you spend that much money on an enjoyable restaurant you do not want to be rushed!!!
Great dining experience. Beautiful patio; attentive but not intrusive service; wonderful though slightly pricey menu exquisitely prepared; world class music from solo guitarist. I also appreciated the conscientious protocols followed by all staff and the spacing of the tables. Overall first class experience!
A beautiful setting on the patio with lovely guitar music and outstanding food and service. Highly recommend the bacon and date appetizer.
Took my 90 year old mother in law. Her eyes sparkled. It was a super night with very good music.
Great patio, live music was perfect... food was great. Waiter was almost nonexistent- never can back to check to see if we were satisfied with our meal or if we needed another cocktail.
Great service & good food We will be back for happy hour
It was totally enjoyable and great food, setting and music!
The view from the patio is beautiful! Also, the guitar player is very talented. Our food was good- bone in strip steak, as well as shrimp and scallops over risotto. Both were very good. Nice wine list was provided also.
The food and service were amazing. Very nice ambience with outside seating.
Always a great dining experience at Ap's! Love listening to Mark play the guitar, especially since live music is so rare these days.
We had a great experience. We enjoyed the scallops, the pork chop and the short rib ravioli. The date starter was great. The vanilla cake with berries a nice finish. Extensive wine and cocktail list. Live music. Restaurant was full outside. Service was excellent.
