We tried this restaurant while visiting from out of town and it was fabulous. The bacon wrapped dates were a perfect appetizer! Extensive wine list enabled us to taste a few wines before settling on a bottle. Soft live music playing was a perfect accompaniment to our meal.
Highly recommend if your in the area!

Arnold Palmers in LaQuinta CA is a first class restaurant. We enjoyed every aspect of the evening, and topped it off with a visit to his special equipment and awards room, where we saw so many trophy's, pictures, golf equipment, shoes, paintings, books, it was amazing. We are returning soon.

we ate outside on the patio
The guitarist was amazing He did not play loudly, but softly and had a wide range of music.
He would play requests.
The food had lovely presentation, and was excellent.

Celebrated our daughter’s 24th birthday at Arnold Palmers. Sat outside, beautiful setting. Guitarist, Mark, was incredible. Our waiter, John, was THE BEST!! He took very good care of us. The food was so delicious. Only wish this restaurant was closer to our home in South OC!

Lovely as always. A good comfort food menu with nice wine selections and cocktails. We enjoy sitting on your beautiful patio, nicely recessed and landscaped so that breezy evenings are still enjoyable outside. Food, service and cocktails never disappoint!!!

An absolutely perfect evening at Arnold’s. We were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary and the food and ambiance ( on the patio) could not have been better. Even the gentleman on the guitar all night was spot on.
Would have been nice touch if our server had acknowledged our anniversary... after all she did ask if we were celebrating anything special. Oh well... I guess 40’s not that special?

In any case we’ll always return to Arnies place whenever we’re visiting the desert.

Oh how I hat negative reviews.
Let’s start with the good. Our waiter, Caesar was wonderful, personable, and greeted us by name.
We sat on the patio, which had live music and is beautiful. You do get street noise when a loud car goes by, but all in all a fantastic setting. We were there for a fairly late (8pm) dinner, but we’re still surprised by the drunken f-bombs at two tables around us. I have a real potty mouth, but seriously people, it’s a nice establishment
Now, to the pretty pricey food... note it was the 2nd night after opening from their summer remodel.
Hubby ordered a pomegranate martini for me. It was a trying too hard to be unique cocktail. It had grapefruit, which is fine. But the lychee syrup ruined it. It tasted like lychee, which is very sweet.
The bread tasted more stale than crisp. If you’re like me and only eat bread when it’s amazing, you can skip it.
The appetizer, vegetarian pot stickers were meh, but the sauce was good.
The date strawberry salad was ok, but not great. It was supposed to have goat cheese but if it did, I didn’t notice. Let’s just say I wouldn’t ask a friend for the recipe.
Hubby had the meatloaf. It was mushy and didn’t have a lot of flavor. He said the sauce tasted like catsup. $28 bucks.
I had the branzino with scallop mouse, topped with a tasty sauce with almonds and onions. It was pretty good. Again, not great. Didn’t notice any scallop mouse. $38 bucks.
We ordered the peanut butter torte, which came frozen, so they brought us the flourless chocolate cake. The flourless chocolate vale was like the pomegranate martini, over powered by an ingredient that didn’t seem to jive, I believe it was anise.
Anyway, it’s a gorgeous setting , we had great service, and the memorabilia is certainly fun. Hope they get the food on track because it’s dam expensive. The “water bug” that scattered by while we were paying the check was unsettling. They are a hazard of the trade. I’d just rather not see one.
