Arnold Palmer's Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
We loved this place! Our waiter, Corey, was so friendly and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed visiting with him. The food was excellent. The atmosphere amazing. The Arnold Palmer room was really cool too. We will eat here again if we ever get back to the area.
My husband and I usually go to AP’s when we are in town on vacation. I’ve been probably 6 or 7 times in the last 5 years. The ambience and vibe there has been top notch. I will say that since they have crammed more tables outside in the areas that before were great ambience spots it’s just not the same. The fire pit was a great waiting area to have a cocktail before dinner. The golf putting area over on the side was always enjoyable and part of the charm. Now that whole area is covered with tables. It killed the unique vibe of the place. The food is very good. We had the prime rib and charcuterie board. The charcuterie could have been a bit better. Nothing special. Drinks were good. Service was what was moat glaringly lacking. Took awhile for a waiter to come over to our table and acknowledge us and he was always very rushed, sweating profusely, I felt bad for him . Looked like he had too many tables to handle. Anyway, a good place, just not the restaurant and cool place it used to be.
Great restaurant with amazing views from the outdoor patio. There was a musician playing the guitar who was very good and provided excellent background music for dinner. The service was fantastic and the food was amazing, an excellent getaway in the desert. A must see restaurant for anyone who knows and respects Arnold Palmer for what he accomplished in his lifetime.
We were seated in a side room instead of the main dining room with fireplace. Didn't like the table location at all. The service was excellent and the food was very good although expensive.
We had made a note that we were celebrating a friend's 85th birthday which was totally ignored. The restaurant certainly didn't meet our expectations and we will not go back.
We sat on the patio which has a fantastic, big firepit, Large Palms and plenty of heaters to keep you warm on a January night.
The French Onion soup is one of the best you could enjoy anywhere. Pablo was our server and was delightful and offered great service throughout our dinner.
Some of the food was over salted, and there were a few mix ups with ordering (we were also never informed of the specials which a few of our party inquired about afterwards). The suprising piece at the end was a very large bill to which we didnt feel was on par with the value of the restaurant. Go somewhere else in old town.
Overall disappointing. Greeter led us to the worst outdoor table in a dark corner under the portico totally remote from the good ambiance of the outdoor area. After complaint, we were given a nice table near the fire pit. The food was fair except for the sea bass which gave my daughter a night of being sick. Don't believe the menu when it says an entrée such as meatloaf or pot roast comes with mashed potatoes, there is only about a tablespoon. If you want mashed potatoes, it is an $8 side dish. The entrees are really overpriced, especially the meatloaf at $28 for an average sized serving with the aforementioned tablespoon of mashed potatoes. Can't recommend it.
Service was subpar !! The comfort food, pot roast and beef noodles or awful ..... if you're looking to get a hearty meal this is not the place .... my wife's bistro stroganoff had about 3 ounces of pasta and about 2 ounces of meat( The culinary artist in the back must not know what comfort food is ) .... stay away !!!!! The one great exception is the back patio outside area is wonderful.... we used to frequently go there 15 years ago when I lived in Palm Springs and it was exceptional .... if you have to go to Arnold Palmer's restaurant in Palm Springs stay in the pub area you'll have a better time !!! U Will not be paying $34 for beef stroganoff !!!
