Unbelievable dining experience!! Great food,wine and beautiful outdoor patio!! Would highly recommend to anyone! Great treat!
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!
Fantastic experience !!! Great food and wait staff .
My first ever review but I want people to know how good this place is. I gave this a 5 Star and if we would have chosen to eat outside it would have been higher. Believe me when I tell you go try this place. It’s amazing!!
The special Arnold Palmer museum was fantastic and a real treat.
Slow service food just average. Sea bass over cooked and over priced
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.
We used to love this restaurant, dine here more than 15x with several guests. However, food has become mediocre and often inconsistent, thus dinner is over priced for quality. If you happen to get one of the few good servers, than I would rate service excellent, otherwise it is a crap shoot. Seems that food and ambience has changed since the passing of Mr. Palmer . Most likely will find another option when we have special guests in town,.
Food was excellent. The waiter was personable but missed a couple of things with the order.
Just an awesome, consistent great restaurant. Great menu and extensive wine list, live music in the outdoor patio was a nice addition.
I ordered scallops and when I took the first bite, I thought I smelled the oder of ammonia. How strange I thought so I gave a bite to my husband who didn't seem to notice anything. I moved to another bite and it was good. I kept smelling ammonia and when I got home I googled it.
Sure enough when scallops are not fresh, they develop the smell of ammonia. I wish I would of sent the dish back!
The patio is beautiful. Entertainment great! Ambience wonderful. Food was very good and overall a good value. Bus boys great. Did not like our waiter. He was quite terse. He was really unhappy about giving us a refill on our coffees. We felt like he was quite annoyed with us for asking. We will be back, but hopefully we won’t get the same waiter!
Nice atmosphere, great food and just looking at all of the memorabilia is a treat in itself.
Arnie would be proud that his tradition is being so well cared for.
Always a great meal and friendly service
We love Arnold Palmers for our steak dinner when we are in Palm Desert. The food is excellent and the patio setting is the best al fresco in the desert. Its the culmination meal of our trip south.
We dined here during our stay for the tennis tournament and wanted a change from LGs.
Food awesome. Old school steak house.
Needs updating. Needs more light.
Needs more vegetarian options.
Great service and good food with relaxing patio dining under heated overhead portable heaters
Nice place, food ok but nothing great. Overpriced for portion size.
Arnold Palmers is a nice place. Nice atmosphere and very nice food. Service needs work still.
We had a pleasant greeting upon arrival and an OK outdoor table. Waiter was very nice and tried hard but overall service still lacks “polish”. Service level should be professional for the prices they charge.
We dined here on our last night of vacation in Indian Wells, CA. This was our first time at this restaurant. Everything exceeded our expectations! We were seated on the patio at a table facing the firepit. As the evening dusk descended and the candles and fire were lit, we knew that this would be a special evening. Our server Lauren was knowledgeable, friendly, attentive, but not hovering. She recommended the halibut and sea bass and we were not disappointed. We'll be back!
Was recommended to go and was genuinely excited to go. I wanted to go simple and I knew they had a burger on their pub menu. We couldn’t get seating in the pub so we sat down at a table. I would think, since they make the burger for the pub, they could make it for the dining room. This was not the case. Our waiter gave a long winded excuse, stating that if you got one, everyone would want one. I understand they are trying to upsell but not to accommodate a simple request is beyond me. I went with the ribs, and French onion soup. The soup was great, not salty, good amount of onion flavor. The ribs were a different story. They were overcooked and just weren’t appetizing. I would not recommend this restaurant to my friends.
Wonderful experience. Waiter Kyle provided great service.
Exceptional in every way, from hostess to waiters to food and drink. The crispy tempura shrimp appetizer was one of our favorites ever. Arnie’s never disappoints. Mr Palmer would not permit that.
It took some time for our dinners to arrive. Everything else was wonderful. Server Kyle was very attentive!
Absolutely the best evening we have had since moving to Palm Desert.
Full points!! Anthony was fantastic!
Excellent Service! Excellent food!
Awesome entertainment and the best ambience anywhere !!!
Great food great people
Great fun, great food.Perfect as always. We have been attending Palmer's since 2002, never been disappointed.
Always have a great time at Arnie’s ! Golf trip with buddies and we always like to go
Here! Sea bass great, meat loaf great, pork chop just ok! Tuna appetizer just ok! Trophy room always a treat!
We visit Arnold Palmer’s every time we come to Palm Springs. We were disappointed this time. Portion size was small compared to the price. Serving an Arnold Palmer in the plastic bottle from the grocery store is tacky. Service was poor. Just not impressed this time.
Our waiter Kyle was fantastic! Attentive (but not overly so) and fun personality!! The guitar player was also fantastic! Took requests. Volume was just right -- you knew he was there but you could hear your tables conversation. And of course food was perfect! A great evening!!
Every time I go to Arnie's I promise myself that I will get the Gnocchi (yummy) or the Meatloaf (classic) but I usually get the Pot Roast...soooo delicious. Such good food no matter what you order....outdoor seating is very comfortable as they have many patio heaters. Highly recommend!
Over valued...not great service, quite disappointing. If it is a thing one must do in La Quinta to tick a box, okay do it...other than that, not recommended.
All our food was delicious but a bit on the pricey side. Great outside seating!!
Great food and service. The guitar player outside is outstanding
It was great, the 1 man band was really good
Noise level was low in dining area, excessive in bar area. They dropped Arnie’s baked beans from the menu. BOO!
It was lovely. Excellent food & service.
Our reservation was a bit messed up. They couldn’t find it & then they said it indicated we were already seated, but we weren’t. They ended up seating us outside by the fire. That was gorgeous.
Not the cheapest place in town, but the atmosphere is worth it. Great food, great drink, great service.
