Look... for where it is and what you get, its a home run. The food is a bit salty, but the prime rib was a rising out of the park home run, or should I say a straight long drive off the tee. It was GREAT. Bar was busy with live music and our server Cory was fantastic. Overall, a 9/10. Look there is better food in the valley but his is a great overall package of a fun night out.

Fantastic! Celebrated the end of my son’s college freshman year and our last night in the desert for the season. Nate had the filet, it was a perfect medium and melt in your mouth tender. I had the meatloaf (best comfort food) with a yummy Csmas Cab. We sat outside on a perfect Coachella valley night.

Spent Mothers Day there and had a wonderful time! Our server was John and he was attentive and funny.
Hubby had the special....parmesan encrusted rib-eye......little pricey at $65 but it was delish and plenty left over for dinner the next night. I had the fish special branzino and it was good...$40 There was a delightful guitar player Mark who made the whole afternoon special.

I could not give a 5 star because of what happened when we were seated. We had a glass of wine in the bar and hostess came to show us to our table outside. My hubby is disabled and I helped him get up... got his walker....carried 2 glasses of wine while the hostess stood there with the menus. I stood there holding the door open with one foot....still with wine in my hands....while at least 5 staff members..... including MANAGER talked and watched!! Pathetic.....Not a 5 star restaurant !!!

First time diner. Had dinner around sunset with another couple and sat outside on patio. Plenty of shade on a mild and beautiful evening. Cocktail menu and quality of drinks were a wonderful start. Appetizers and meal were outstanding surpassed only by the service. Save room for dessert as the dessert menu and quality was awesome! Highly recommend.

P.S. Ask to take a tour of Arnie’s back room and enjoy a walk thru golf history.

Had not eaten there in a while. Have eaten in bar area but always too noisy and "cold" ambience. So had dinner on patio area.....what a surprise! Very comfortable, great ambience, had a great guitarist, everyone had different entrée and all agreed they were excellent. Service was good. Good value for the price. Definitely will go again! and bring friends.....

I wasn’t sure about sitting outside for fear of flys, but not a problem. And our wonderful waiter, John, insisted he would take care of any issue. John has us laughing and was extremely gracious. He recommended a great wine, make sure our means were served just the way we wanted and added immensely to a great evening. The food was excellent....out party had the halibut, prime rib, and lamb chops All were excellent. A great evening. We also had the most enjoyable guitar music all evening. We loved it.

Great location, but let down by service. It's happened on previous visits, so don't know why we were surprised ......waiters don't clear tables after first course and before mains ard served. Table was full with starter dishes and waiter was trying to find space for mains. Considering this is a high end establishment it's a great shame that this error does not seem to be addressed, particularly as there are ample staff to cope with it!
