We visited Arnold Palmer's for Happy Hour and had a light dinner. The food was good, and we enjoyed seeing all the Palmer memorabilia including Championship trophies and the Masters' green jacket. We even tried our hand at putting on the green outside. The musical duo played through dinner - mostly songs familiar to the mostly baby boomer clientele.

The outdoor setting was nice and the food was good, although not good enough to get a fifth star from us. Service was also very nice. Overall we had an enjoyable, but not memorable meal. Prices were relatively high, but in line with other comparable restaurants.

Went for a special couples dinner with out of town guests, a first trip for all of us. Bar entertainment and dancing before dinner had a good, nice energy feeling of happy people.
Appetizer of man 'n cheese with lobster chunks was a small meal in itself, and heartily consumed. The lobster bisque was the best I have ever had, and French onion soup was properly prepared in a small turren. Prime rib, steak, scallops all prepared to perfection. Lovely patio seating with small inside dining rooms with Arnold Palmer memorabilia, trophies, and photos are in evidence. This is definitely a fine dining experience for special occasions.

This was our first time to the Palm Springs area so we weren't familiar with very many restaurants in the area. As a golfer, I thought it would be neat to try Arnold Palmer's in La Quinta.

The atmosphere is fantastic. There are different dining rooms with different themes such as the British Dining Room featuring pictures from the British Opens of Arnold Palmer. This was the dining room we ate in. There is also the "Augusta Room" which I think is self explanatory. Then there is the "Family Room" (I believe that's correct) which displays personal photos of Arnold.

We knew there was outdoor seating but it was not available the night we made our reservation.
After dinner, we went outside to see what the outdoor area looked like so the next time we return we would know what to expect. The outdoor area is beautiful! It has a fire pit and wonderful lighting in a tropical setting. Very cool and we will definitely try the outdoor next time we return.

The food: Our food was DELICIOUS! I had the Ribeye Steak which was fabulous. Done medium rare just as I had ordered. My wife and brother had the Filet which was also fabulous and done just as they had ordered. My sister in law had the Beef Stroganoff which actually uses the Filet Steak as the beef. She said is was wonderful as well.

The service: Our server was very knowledgeable, friendly and polite. She consistently checked on us and refilled our water and beverages without asking. She also mentioned to us that Arnold Palmer comes to his restaurant and dines in the Augusta room by the fireplace. Above the fireplace is a framed "replica" of the Green Jacket from Augusta National Golf Club.

Overall, I would highly recommend Arnold Palmer's. Whether you're a golfer or not, you will enjoy the food, the ambiance and the service. There is also valet parking for your convenience.
