    We had a most enjoyable evening from drinks at the intimate bar to a superb dinner. Best was a tea leaf smoked salmon that was then braised and presented at the table with a clear cover over the plate. Once the cover was removed the fragrance of the smoked tea leaf preparation was unforgettably delicious! Excellent service, excellent restaurant.

    Amazing, intimate restaurant with a well-rounded menu. Chef/owner Andrew Copley creates dishes - from apps to desserts - that are seasonal and locally sourced. Ahi tacos are one of Andrew's not to miss apps and the new Colorado lamb chops are sweet, juicy and cooked to perfection. Tried the Key Lime Pie w/basil ice cream (always a favorite), which was perfection.

    First I would point out that everything about Copley's is fine. However at this price point I wouldn't expect anything else but great food, etc; and therein lies my complaint. If you are planning on spending over $100 each, there are lots of great choices in Palm Springs! When considering that elite group of restaurants, Copley's gets a 'C' or average in my book. My spouse and I just recently celebrated our 30th wedding aniversary and choose Copley's for our special evening. Again, everything was just fine but most restaurants in town would comp you a desert or maybe even an appertiff for celebrating with them. Copley's didn't comp anything. The only 'splurge' on their part was sticking a birthday candle in our shared key lime pie.

    Our server was Victor. He was a wonderful server who made sure we always had drinks and food. Our dinners were served piping hot and at the same time for our party of 5. It was my husband's 65th birthday celebration & they surprised us with an inviting basal ice cream and fruit servings. We certainly will be back in the near future.. thank you..

    First, the service was amazing! Our waiter was friendly and attentive. A shared salad was presents already split. However, both our meals were undercooked. My lamb was rare and my partner's scallops were raw inside. He asked me not to address this at the time, so I am glad for the opportunity to bring this up. Given the calibre of the restaurant, I have every confidence that they would have rectified the situation without question.

    This is an expensive restaurant, with appetizers in the $12 to $16 range, main courses $25 to $30 and dessert $12. For that one should expect outstanding food. On this occasion we felt it was good but no more. The appetizer of lobster and prawn was served as a kind of ceviche with a non-descript sauce and lacking any flavour of fresh seafood ( the restaurant did take this off the bill). The ahi tuna special was superb, the duck was ok, but the outer slice was fatty and the skin wasn't crisp. Presentation was very good and wine list had lots of selections under $40. Wait staff was competent.

    Our dinner at Copley's was truly lovely - the setting is charming, the garden dining is the best in Palm Springs, the service is PROFESSIONAL!, a rarity in the desert, and the food was delicious. The chef knows how to cook fish - it is consistently perfectly cooked. While there are new restaurants opening in the valley, Copley's is a true fine dining establishment with a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. I recommend without reservation.

    This PS "classic" offers a tired ambiance, lousy service, average food and poor value. From start to finish, we were underwhelmed by this PS "classic". Ambiance is 70s in an original and tired way, not hip or fun. Service was terrible from all the staff all night. No smiles, no friendliness. Food was just okay. Starters of Caesar and beet salads were nothing special. Mains were steak (perfectly cooked and seasoned, to be fair) and halibut (dry and bland). Servers slapped down plates with nary a smile or nicety. Our waiter was not friendly nor attentive. He placed down dessert menu and said "Dessert menu" and walked away. Par for the course all evening. Avoid and go to Johannes or Spencer's if you are looking for fine dining in PS.

    While in Palm Springs we are always looking for new places to dine at. Copley's is one of those places that is definitely an unforgetable experience. As you enter you pass through a courtyard that is perfect for outdoor dining. We happened to be there on an evening where tempature was 107, so outdoor dining was out of the question. We were seated inside by a window with a terrific view. Food was outstanding. Food could easily surpass any meal with top restaurants in New York City. Would always highly recommend.

    Love this place! Was there last month for my birthday and a special date. One month later to celebrate dating one month. It was so nice and romantic. We were not rushed, order at our leisure and held hands. We never felt rush during our meal. Reservation was for 6:30 and we led tat 9;00. I love this place and will always consider it my personal favorite places to eat.

    We really enjoyed our dinner, the food was fun, innovative and well prepared. Our server was great, informed and very efficient. We had the duck breast and the wild Scottish salmon with some really good salads and apps, the desert with their homemade salted caramel ice cream was devine. We sat on the patio, they had misters on which really helped keep the temps down. One table complained they did not like the "sprinklers" and they were turned off for them, when everyone on the patio complained it was getting hot, they turned them on and dealt with the complainers and it was fine. Really pretty view of the mountains behind the restaurant. Only thing I did not like was the kids running around unattended by parents. Distracting.

I loved the quiet, romantic atmosphere of the place. Would have loved to sit outdoors, but in June it's just too hot.

    Took my husband here for his birthday. Couldn't have chosen a better spot. We dined outside with a backdrop of our wonderful mountains and the soft lights of there beautiful landscaped gardens. They have added misters recently to enhance ther outside eating area. The waiter having taken note on my reservation that it was my husband's birthday, wished him a happy birthday as he seated us. He also brought him a complementary birthday desert at the conclusion of our meal. Service is impecabible here...always there when you need something but never intrusive. The food here is always exquisite and artfully displayed. This is a very special place for a special meal.

    Though its located on the main drag we had to make a few U turns to find it. This tiny quaint gem look like a small cottage in the middle of a big city so it was not noticabke at first. With complimentary valet parking we were greeted by the host with a warm hello and whether we would like indoor or outdoor seating. Our waiter waiter was extremely educated on the menu and wine list and was very helpful when it came time to order. I had the lamb and it was moist, tender, and extremely flavor full. The wine was paired perfectly along with the atmosphere and weather to tie the entire night together. If you're looking for a romantic meal or a nice dinner with friends this is definitely the place to enjoy in beautiful Palm Springs.

    The halibut was moist and had a tasty Asian ginger sauce...not too overwhelming, but enough to tantalize the palate! I enjoy the beautiful patio and the misters made the warm evening a delightful temperature. The only criticism I have is that I wish people with dogs would leave them home. I like dogs, but I think they do not belong at upscale dining restaurants. (Especially big dogs)

    Anytime you can have a fabulous meal with a view of the mountains, you can't go wrong. The duck and ahi were outstanding and the ravioli appetizer melted in your mouth. We weren't crazy about the apple crisp, but everything else was excellent. From being greeted by Doug when we arrived until the time we left we felt very much at home.
