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.

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)

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😎

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.

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!!

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.

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!
