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.

This visit was part of our annual excursion for vacation to Palm Desert. We have been here multiple times and it is always great. Really enjoyed their new show room of Arnold's memorabilia. It is a really good choice for a meal.

Everything was great. Special occasion for a birthday and house purchase. Appetizers were the dates and a shrimp special. Both very good. Entrees were meatloaf, sea bass and the gnocchi. Everyone enjoyed and desserts included the butter cake and coconut pie. Great coffee. We’ll be back again.

Late Valentines Day dinner. Everything was great except Rib Eye wasn’t that good for a extremely expensive steak. Overall I love the restaurant!

The atmosphere is wonderful but the food quality was poor and way over priced. Very poor prime rib and the sea bass did not taste fresh. Also we had indicated that it was our anniversary and I was surprised that they did not make an effort to do something special especially after noticing they brought another guest a birthday dessert with candle.

The wind was blowing so hard that we decided to eat inside . We could have waited to be seated in the dining room but same menu could be ordered from in either area so we opted for the bar.

Our group of 8 was getting together. One of nice aspects of our reservation was that they had gluten free bread.

We ordered some wine and drinks, and had bread delivered. I asked for some gluten free bread. None appeared. I re-asked only to be told they had run out the night before. Okay, it happens.

We ordered appetizers which came quickly and done right. At this point our server took our order. It seemed quite awhile before food appeared, but it was a group of 8. There was some confusion over which salads went where, but it did work out. Eventually our food came, with the exception of 1 person. Apparently, there was some confusion about his order. Again, we are a group of 8. Everyone was served, but him. So, the rest of started to eat slowly. We waited, and waited and waited. The joke became that they had to go fishing to get the fish. I finally went out and asked what was going on. They assured me it would be out in 2 minutes. It wasn't 2 minutes, but it was shortly afterwards. A couple of times, we had to ask that glasses be refreshed with wine/water. My husband and I ordered a side dish that never came. I had to remind the waiter that it hadn't arrived and said that it was so late now, to please remove it from the charges.

The waiter did without our asking, remove the cost of the one dinner that was so late.

Yes, we were a large group, but there are two large group rooms so I assume they are used to having groups. The friends made the evening, the food was okay, but it fell really short on service.

Wonderful Food in a Classic dining environment. Amanda has been our server a couple of times and she is FABULOUS. The young gals at the door and parking attendants are...... well, young and need some help understanding that the customer comes first.

Look forward to a return visit.
