    Copley's is always a WOW. Restaurant week is an amazing value. We took 1st timers there and they were enthralled. They will be back. Everyone loved their dinner, but the duck breast and the halibut were outstanding. The beet lovers among us went nuts over the salad. Charming atmosphere.

The Service was so very thoughtful and helpful and our waiter was charming. Will definitely return for other occasions.

    There are few choices in Palm Springs which consistently deliver for a foodie who is interested in the freshest ingredients, consistent and innovative execution and excellent service. I've been to Copley's now four times (most recently during restaurant week) and have been consistently thrilled with the execution. Innovative dishes, expertly prepared and in the case of our most recent visit - expertly served. Special shout out to Victor who was just a delight throughout our dining experience. Well done keeping the quality where it should be on every aspect Copley's!

    A unique setting but don't sit inside if you don't want to feel isolated. The patio was packed with bachelorette parties. Didn't feel like sophisticated dining. Very touristy and the servers were loud and inattentive.

    We make a special point of dining at Copley's particularly during Palm Springs Restaurant Week. The chef this year went out of his way to add duck and fish entrees to the offered restaurant week specials. The chef's particular talent in melding fresh food and produce in flavorable combinations always takes front and center . My beef entre was paired with a mixed green lobster salad and the combination was superb. Patio dining here is among the most pleasent in the desert and the ongoing efforts to keep the decor, landscaping and other amenities fresh is apparent. The overall dining experience is hard to beat. I would drive the 60 miles from my home by the way just for the Caesar salad with pineapple croutons!

    Copleys is a real gem in Palm Springs. I visited during Palm Springs Restaurant Week and ordered from a set menu at $38. There was a good choice, and all the dishes I ordered were well executed. The restaurant is located in the uptown Palm Springs Design District, with a great view of the mountain and a really great setting with a fire pit as well as misters to keep you cool. Loved it. I will definitely be back.

    This is my 5 year in kicking off 'PS Restaurant Week at Copley's. Its become a tradition for a group of us that started off at 2 and has since grown to 8 as of this year. We love the out door ambiance and of course Copleys food sets the bar for the rest of the restaurants we'll visit this year. It casual yet special all at once, its fun to share the buildings history with first timers and watch them enjoy the food and experience that we've grown to love. Thanks again for a memorable evening.

    We met our friends at the bar to celebrate my husband's Birthday. We were not rushed to be seated at our table, while we enjoyed our drinks and conversation. We were then given a choice of whether we wanted inside or outside seating, which we all thought was very accommodating. Our dinner was fabulous, the service was spectacular, and not rushed, and the beautiful surroundings made for a very nice evening and celebration. Definitely going back to Copley's very soon!!!

    on the patio of Copley's as the sun sets over the mountains. Beautiful patio/garden with plenty of space for an intimate dining experience. The seafood sampler stood out as the appetizer of choice. Our waiter was correct that is was an individual dish and I definitely wouldn't have wanted to share after my first bite of the salmon caper tartare. The ahi "taco" was constructed in a delicious sesame shell. I heard Copley's was know for their meat so I went for the beef tenderloin. Perfectly prepared medium rare with a delicious lobster risotto with a generous amount of lobster. The main meal was very filling so desert came down to a well executed lavender pound cake that was moist and delicious. Nice wines and friendly service.

    Flavourful food nicely presented. Not great value for money. Could have done without paper topping on table for a restaurant of this calibre.we had the lamb signature rack of lamb with lavender coating, the idea of the lavender was more promising than the actual dish but the Colorado rack was excellent. The vichyssoise with salmon garnish was delightful. Very pleasant service and friendly greeting.

    My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here recently and it was fantastic. Great service and we were attended to "just right", meaning they didn't constantly come over and ask how is dinner? I had veal cheeks and lobster and it was very good and I appreciate the fact they serve a meal that some would not eat. I am not very PC with food. Best description is it's the best pot roast you've ever had. Lobster was moist and not overbooked at all. Wifey had salmon and barramundi. It too was not overlooked and very good. Good wine list and some interesting cocktails and desserts. Prices are reasonable too. We will definitely return.

    Copley's is our favorite PS restaurant. We always plan our vacation time so we have at least one night there to savor the outstanding food, the friendly, efficient, and caring service, and the romantic ambience. This time we were there for Mother's Day dinner. The California sea bass special was wonderful. The pecan tart was heavenly. The only reason I give Copley's four instead of five stars is that the vegetarian offerings are uninspired or non-existent. My vegetarian wife is usually left with an appetizer, salad, and dessert--all of which are excellent, but it would be nice to have at least one vegetarian entree option on the menu instead of the server's offering of a tofu dish (good) or "we can do something with vegetables."

    I should admit, upfront, that my girlfriend and I probably set our expectations too high after looking at the menu. Braised veal cheeks and maine lobster, beef tenderloin and risotto for low to mid $30s is too good to be true. The blue cheese stuffed dates (hard to screw up) were excellent. The tomato basil soup tasted like barbecue sauce. Overall, the entrees (mentioned above) lacked flavor. Although, the tenderloin was a perfectly cooked, excellent hunk of meat. Would consider going back for appetizers and drinks just to enjoy the ambience.

    We invited some "down valley" friends to join us in our neighborhood for dinner (nine of us). They had never been to Copley's. Everyone had a wonderful dining experience . . . it was a beautiful evening to sit outside. The wait staff was very attentive (but not overly so . . . don't like hoverers). They corked the wine we brought and we didn't feel pressured into eating right away. It was nice to be able to visit. We ordered different entrees and everyone loved not only the food, but the presentation. We closed the evening with the wonderful caramel sea salt ice cream and a couple chocolate martini's. We will certainly get our down valley friends back to Palm Springs for dinner. Thank you for a great evening.

The "backyard" dining area (This is a former home) was great for her because she was able to run around a little without bothering anyone else. There is a very nice firepit and conversation area in the backyard, as well as a fountain. Fantastic food. Great service. Will come again

    We had heard that Copley's was highly recommended, so we made a reservation through "Open Table". What a fabulous find! We had a choice of indoor or outdoor dining. The weather was "simply fabulous, darling", that night......se we dined outdoors. The menu was varied, and they also had specials of the day. We had the specials of the evening. The ahi was prepared perfectly! The salads were beautiful and flavorful. Even the dessert menu had many tempting choices. We really indulged and had everything from the special cocktails, to dinner, then to dessert! Our waiter was intelligent and informed, as well as diligent and charming! The building used to be a desert home, belonging to Cary Grant. This is a perfect desert dinner destination!

    There are limited offerings which means the items are thoughtfully prepared. They may sound like comfort food. But there are special little touches like on the wedge salad. It had marinated mushrooms instead of bacon bits. The entrees were well prepared and worth the wait They bring ice-cream to a whole new level. Unusual flavors like basil or tarragon. Refreshing. This seems to be a favorite spot for all ages looking for an upscale experience.

Service top of the line from the greeting by the host, to the waiter, to the support staff. We enjoyed the chef specialty of the evening, a perfectly cooked veal medallion dish. We shared, a must for small appetites. The Caesar Salad and the Goat Cheese and Roasted Beet Salad were very satisfying. We did not have dessert, unfortunately.

    What a fabulous dining experience from the appetizer of stuffed dates to the sesame encrusted ahi tuna and wasabi mashed po to the exceptional salted caramel ice cream, the food was outstanding. The service was attentive except for an overly lengthy lull before ordering dessert. The ambience was romantic (wasn't that Cary Grant at the next table?) and the weather was sublime (be sure to sit outside). Bravo!
