Since I've moved here, this is the worst food I've had. I've stayed at this resort and enjoyed the spa since about 1988. The rooms were nice, the spa was always good, but the Arches restaurant was always under par. I'd heard that the chef was new and the menu was new and the food was fresh. But it was... More

Last night after golf we started off with a quick drink in the bar with Gerry, he is AWESOME. With drink in hand to the dining room we were greeted by another Jerry, our very attentive server. After asking him some culinary questions out came Charlie the chef to explain. The food was excellent. We were back today after morning... More

Only had a breakfast there which was very good, but their happy hour is great. Meet & greet, it's a warm atmosphere to hear stories & meet people. Check in w/ Gerry, he's the best!

Nice dinner watching the rain and lightening. Server poured generous glasses of wine pairings with our dinners. Steak was delicious. Fish was ok, not great. The evening was quite nice.

My wife and I had a wonderful dinner at this restaurant. While the building and decor is somewhat dated, the food was excellent! Our waitress was great! Borrego Springs is a beautiful oasis in the desert. The natural beauty in the area adds to the experience. This restaurant is something great and unique. I would recommend a visit to this... More

We arrived New Years Eve without a reservation, but we were greeted and seated within a heartbeat. The menu was preset: my husband and I enjoyed the salad, sea bass, and chocolate cake all with the accompanying wine flight. Absolutely delicious food and prompt service. We would have liked a more time to linger as the food and wine arrived... More

Cannot say enough good things about Chef Charlie who served us late on Xmas Day. "No reservation?" - No problem. "You don't want the fixed menu dinner?" - No problem. "You just want a burger and fries for dinner on my busiest day?" - No problem. Fairly formal setting but informal and friendly atmosphere. I would go again just for... More

Restaurant was close to the hotel next door so we walked over. Sat right down on a Tuesday evening for dinner. Limited wine list, a few reds from Lodi CA at $9 a glass. Had the spaghetti bolognese, it was just ok for $15. Service was attentive throughout the meal. I would recommend passing on this restaurant.

As locals who have been coming to The Arches since FOREVER, we are sad. Came in for dinner around 8:00 p.m. a couple of weeks ago hungry for a cheeseburger and what used to be awesome fries. Discovered that the restaurant had gone "upscale" and, as of 5:00 p.m. every day, only served food from an expensive, quite limited, menu.... More

We made reservations for Thanksgiving dinner at 5:00 p.m. when it opened for dinner service. We had a party of six. The staff first said that we could only have one side. This means you could have turkey and dressing, but NO green beans, mashed potatoes, or sweet potatoes. When we asked how much it would cost to add the... More
