Arnold Palmer's Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

Wait staff was fabulous but the Thanksgiving food was subpar. Pumpkin pie was especially terrible. Prime rib was tasteless and tough. Turkey was dry, tough, funny tasting, ??too much sage ?? Oysters were very good. Lobster bisque had very little lobster and tasted burned. We will not go back.

I booked for Thanksgiving traditional turkey dinner, etc. I had booked at another but when compared to this place's menu, I rebooked here because more traditional Thanksgiving fare. Staff extremely pleasant and helpful and all the food was very good and delivered in a very timely manner

Staff was fantastic, friendly, knowledgable. The food was borderline. I had chicken that was dry, taste was nothing to write home about either. My friend had the salad with blacked shrimp and she left most of it saying shrimp was "chewy". Everyone else enjoyed their meal. (Ribeye steak, wedge salad, fish) I will go back for sure, I'm thinking it was just late, only those items and not the usual.
We had great service and that's so important to me.

Enjoyed being in Arnie's place. The food and service were terrific and the dining room was relatively quiet so that we could actually have a conversation. We come to this restaurant every time we come to the desert.

The presentation was first class and the service was unobtrusive and extremely efficient. We had a relaxing evening and beginning with the valets at the front and throughout everyone we encountered, the evening was a great success. So much so that we are planning to take a friend tomorrow night to introduce her to the wonderful menu and hope to go back again ourselves before our vacation ends. Wish we could give Arnold Palmer six stars!

From the valet to the dessert, Palmer's is sheer perfection. Yes, it is pricey, but well worth it. Our dinner tab for three people was $200 including tip. The meals were simply delicious, the service impeccable. I highly recommend Palmer's. I'm already looking forward to our next visit.

We ate on the patio near the putting green. The landscaping and lighting created a beautiful ambiance. The lobster bisque was uniquely served, lobster pieces first, then soup poured over them. Delicious! The pot roast was a favorite of Arnie's and well deserving of the praise. The scallops and salmon were tasty and beautifully presented. We would definitely return!

Fabulous outdoor patio with Sunday brunch offering a wide variety of menu selections that will please everyone. Choices include a delicious crab cake benedict, stuffed french toast, open faced breakfast sandwich with smoked salmon, soups, salads and burgers. Large portions and excellent service. Live background guitar music was a nice bonus.

We were visiting the Palm Desert area, so we took the time to make a reservation. We had a nice romantic table setting on the patio. The live jazz guitarist made the evening even more enjoyable. If you love golf and appreciated Mr. Arnold Palmer then take the time to dine here.

We were here about 6 years ago on vacation and came back to find they expanded the outdoor seating area which we chose and it was awesome- nice ambience and loved the entertainment that was non-obtrusive to conversation. Liked the change in menu options too! Going back next week!

This was such a nice place for dinner. we got there early so there were not a lot of people dinning at the time. Our waiter was very good. he did not rush us. The food was out of this world good. BEST meatloaf. the coconut cream pie was really good too. we go to Palm Desert once a year and we will add this to our list of places to eat yearly.
First time to this venue. Reservation in ...
First time to this venue. Reservation in order and seated promptly. Service was very good in the beginning, but as more people arrived service became tardy.
Ordered on the menu items, Sea Bass and the meatloaf. When asked to make a substitution on the side item for the meatloaf, the chef refused.
As the dinner went on, the service disappeared, could not get water glasses refilled. A party of six next to us, brought a dog on a leash into the dining room. The dog got out from under the table and began visiting the other tables. once dessert was over, it was a search to get the server to prepare and bring the check.

Went to Arnold's because my father was a big fan of his. We had a friends/business meeting that it was the perfect spot for that occasion. Lots of memorabilia, good food, and comfortable atmosphere. The waiter knew his stuff - that's very important.
