Arnold was my friend and I miss him dearly. I do not get out to the Palm Springs area much anymore, but my wife and I discovered The La Quinta Inn and we agreed to how relaxing it was to get away and spend some time together.
I have been to Arnold Palmer's before but was too early for dinner (we should have waited, but my buddy had to get back to his wife).
As you enter this place, immediately you are in AWE... There are pictures everywhere. After you check in turn around and look as you walk toward the dining area to the right and tell me what you think of that one! I CRIED all the way to my seat and it took a while before I could read my menu. That picture embodies the whole man that Arnold was in one shot! It is truly amazing!
Anyway my wife and I were quite shocked at the outdoor space and how large it was and with lots of heaters (COLD in the winter). The food was as you would expect for The King. Oh, but PABLO our waiter? My newfound friend Pablo... I asked Pablo if I could get a bottle of wine to go and he said yes. The next question was, "Even this one? (pointing to the 90th birthday Cabernet Sauvignon) He brought it to our table immediately and it was the last one. I read people and he was telling me the truth. I am so proud to have this in my collection. I couldn't hug Pablo, but he knew I wanted to. Dinner? Wine? Ambience? Live music with a guy who was reading my mind with each ensuing song? I mean it was nirvana...
This really set the mood for my golf the next day at Thunderbird Country Club (from the Ryder Cup Tees!). I played like he was there with me. Accountability and Purpose!

What an amazing venue and dining experience! We had an amazing time! The food was excellent, the guitar musician outstanding and the service staff caring and attentive. We are sad that they had to close due to CA mandates. We will be back!

My fiancé and I have had the privilege of dining 3 times (as a couple and with friends) at AP’s over the past year and each visit has been wonderful from the time we entered until we left.

The wait staff has always been exceptional and the live music provided for the guests is the icing on the cake for a memorable dining experience.

Great atmosphere. Nice live music selection without being too loud as long as you are not sitting too close. Good food selection and always tasty. Quiet enough to visit with friends. Wine pricey.

the service was less than I expected!
our waiter was good & efficient, but we got lost in the shuffle as the restaurant was slammed! we had to ask for silverware then bread and butter and often times we had to signal to the waiter & busser for other items!
the food was superb!
Ambience great!
Music a nice addition.
I would return perhaps next time
during the week!

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner at Arnie’s Thursday evening. The patio is a great place to have dinner and the service and food were great. We needed to have our table changed to a more protected area and they worked with us to make sure we had a good table and were happy and we were! We go to Arnie’s whenever we are in the area (which is often) and we love it!

It was a great dinner but was ruined by the fact that our $200 gift certificate from our friends was not located. We ended up having to pay ourselves for what was suppose to be a gift! We had to spend most of our meal trying to contact our friends to try and prove we had a gift certificate which was embarrassing and kinda ruined our nice meal. Our friends didn’t appreciate it either.
We’ve been sent a copy of the certificate but a little late.
We’ve eaten at Arnold’s quite a few times and always enjoy it.
But we were not happy with this visit.

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)

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.

Very disappointed in the food, my steak was so tough/chewy I couldn’t eat it all and my dates salmon over cooked. Only good thing was they took steak off the check.
