Great food. Get a new bartender who makes drinks the way the customer specified rather than their way.

Arnold Palmers is our "go to" place when we have guests who aren't regulars in the desert. Food is consistently good comfort food--ribs, meat loaf, fish. Nothing fancy, just good. Not great, but never disappoints. If weather permits, definitely eat outside as the patio is great and entertainment is good, but not too loud. If you or your guests are golfers, there's plenty of memorabilia of the King's career. Fine dining? No. Consistently good food and service? Yes. Plus a good wine list, lively bar and, if you like desert, the coconut cream pie is awesome!

Had 5:30 reservation for the patio. Arrived at 5:25 and was seated immediately. Fantastic patio including live music. Waiter attended to us quickly and food was served promptly (after we had taken our time ordering)

and hot. A very nice way to send a couple of hours. The Butter Cake desert was a great way to finish a wonderful meal.

Enjoyable restaurant to bring a date as long as the loud noise level dining inside doesn't act like earplugs. Outside dining on the patio with a great guitarist is the way to go. I've dined on the patio many times and the ambiance is terrific especially if you like the Hawaii feeling. This particular time, the outdoor patio was closed due to a private party. One caveat: when I made my reservation through OpenTable, I specifically made my reservation for patio dining and was "told" in a response that the outside patio reservation was requested. Arnold Palmer's should have made it clear to OpenTable in advance that patio dining was not available that night instead of me disappointing my date.

We always go to Arnold's when in the desert and it never ever disappoints us. We made our reservation too late to get an outside table. So instead we ate in the main dining room and had fabulous service and food. I think I had the best salmon I have ever had! And the BLT wedge salad is perfect to split. Just go, you won't be disappointed. P.S. They also have a very nice sports bar and I know you can get white table cloth dining there too.

We've been going here for years and the four of us were disappointed in this visit. On the positive side, in addition to the lovely setting, the filets were good and well prepared, and the servers were attentive. However... neither the bartender nor the server knew what a champagne cocktail was, the pours on both cocktails and wine seemed smaller than usual, and the restaurant has changed the preparation of one of their signature dishes- beef stroganoff. Very disappointing for the pricetag!

The patio dining here is spectacular as is the food. This is a great place for a special occasion or a Wednesday night dinner. The food is exceptional. The cocktails are, too. The staff and service are incredible. Cannot say enough good things about this venue.

We enjoyed the outside patio and the food and the guitarist was excellent - however the bar music was awful!! She wails off key so would improve that unless she was a cover band at 900 .

We were celebrating our 40th Anniversary. When I made the reservation, i mentioned this along with wanting outside seating. We were given a table by the fire pit- so romantic and just quiet enough. Our waiter was very attentive. My only issue which was a big one, is that my Halibut was overcooked to the point of dryness. I tried eating it because sending it back would mean that my husband would be done with his ribs (which he said was delicious) by the time I got a new meal. When I finally mentioned it to the waiter, he of course wanted to replace it and when I said no, the meal was taken off our bill and he also treated us to a dessert. This is one of our favorite restaurants and we will be sure to return - hopefully next year.

We have been here many times over the years of spending the winter in the desert. This year is extra special. Our first time there since the remodeling was completed. The new Arnold Palmer Trophy Room is a must see for any golfer.
The outdoor dining is one of the best in the Coachella Valley.
The food never disappoints. The service was excellent. I would give the Arnold Palmer a solid five stars!

At this time I cannot recommend the restaurant. We were a party of 6 and nothing went right. We ordered a bottle of wine. When it was done the waiter asked if we wanted another. We told him we would have it when dinner arrived. He never brought the wine and later said he wasn't sure we actually wanted it. Had he come back to the table to see how the food was he could have asked. Most of the dishes were luke warm at best but two were cold enough to send back. When they were brought out again one dish was only half an order. When asked, the waiter said the other half had been eaten so they only replaced half. This was not true. It too a long time to get the waiter to come to take the food. We repeatedly had to ask for water. The manager was at the next table but did not come to hours until the food had been replaced a second time. At that time he offered apologies and said dessert was on the house. No one wanted dessert as the experience had been ruined and we wanted to leave. Finally, the manager came over and said dinner was on him and he hoped we'd come back. Everyone has an off night but a restaurant of this caliber and expense needs to correct things sooner than they did. I would have to try this place again before I could recommend.

I have been going to Arnold Palmer’s for years. In this case the only open reservation was at 8:30. At that time of the night it didn’t take the rest of the dining room to empty out. In a few minutes we were the only table. Kitchen conversation started getting very loud, waitresses having conversation and was very slow to wait on us. We began to feel like their inconvenience. I will go back and try again and hope for the best.

Arnold Palmer's is one of the best restaurants in the Desert! We love the outdoor seating with gorgeous views and the live music; the indoor bar; the private wine room; the ambiance of the inside dining rooms; the food and of course the Arnold Palmer museum. The personal service provided by Dustin, the General Manager; the service provided from the valet to the wait staff; literally everything you could want in a dining experience! We love it!

It was busy so service was extremely slow. We had a rez and were seated immediately. Server was very nice. The entire menu looked great, it was hard to choose. There was live music and some were dancing, we did not but dance space looked small.

Fun to look around at the memorabilia and would have enjoyed spending some time just doing that.

Would definitely return.
