Copley's on Palm Canyon Ratings and Reviews
I'm always impressed with the total experience, although this time, neither of the guests who had the short-rib special found it something they would order again; though good, it was a rather small serving and didn't wow anyone. It wasn't something we couldn't find a better version of elsewhere for far less than $38.00. The rest of the food was as expected and the dining experience is top-notch each and every time.
Every time I dine here, my only consistent quibble is that we will never have extras, and for the price (cocktails, appetizers, soup/salad, dinners, wine for one, desserts & tip for 3 @ $400+) I suspect I should feel more than simply content to have had a good meal. There are lots of comparable restaurants in the area (Pacifica Seafood, Sullivan's Steak House, Fleming's, Ruth's Chris, etc.) that will cost around the same but leave you able to re-enjoy what's left of the meal @ home a day or two later.
That being said, I still find my way to Copley's once or twice a year.
Best meal in PS. We were in PS for a week, and we like good food. We did almost every one of the TripAdvisor top 15 or so, and this was hands down the best meal we had. Beautiful setting, luxury ambiance, wonderful food, flawless service. Worth every penny! (and not THAT many!)
Our 1st time back in about 2 years. The ambiance is so nice, our waiter attentive, the cocktails strong. Would I go back? Probably not. The food was either not cooked correctly or in my case bland. The desserts were delicious so the meal ended on a high note. Maybe it’s me but for $100 per person I expect more than ambiance.
This was our 2nd time to Copley's for a Special Occasion. We had Charlie as our server both times and he was fantastic. The food was superb, ( duck and short rib special). We will be back with family and friends.
On a sad note, the large tree in the courtyard was lost to the heat last summer.
Setting and food were superb, as I had experienced last year. However, this visit, we had Duncan as the server and he was not a very attentive server to our table of 4 males. However, he was very attentive to other tables with both men and women. Whether it was a case of descrimination or not, I don't know. But his tip reflected his poor attention. On a bill of $350.00, I normally would tip 20%, but not this time. Duncan was lucky to get the 13% I left.
However, the other food delivery and bus people were efficient and pleasant. Too bad they lost out on a bigger portion of my tip because of Duncan. And my personal opinion is, Duncan should be required to wear long sleve shirts to cover those tattoos. I think tattoos such as what he had are in very poor taste, and can very possibly hide germs and bits of dirt or food due to the various colors of ink.
Honestly I never made it inside the restaurant. When you arrive you walk into a beautiful courtyard that has seating and I was seated there for dinner. It was absolutely beautiful. Lit trees, a nice fountain, fire pit. Great atmosphere. Definitely a must try. Oh and the basil sorbet. YES!
I dined at Copley's twice during my time in Palm Springs and on both occasions we all enjoyed our meals very much. In addition, the wait staff is very friendly and also extremely good! The food is excellent and the wine selection is also quite nice. I will go back when in town and also will recommend to friends.
Copely's is a very fine, moderately priced restaurant in downtown Palm Springs. It offers dining el fresco in a quiet garden atmosphere. Their appetizers are particularly tasty, from beet salad with poached pair to a seafood trio of lobster, blue crab and smoked steelhead. Australian Sea Bass was a nice cut. The scallop & meat ball combination was interesting. The basil sorbet with creme fresche, not so much.
Copley's has one of the loveliest outdoor dining areas in Palm Springs! The food is very good, with inventive flourishes. Service is attentive, and the staff really know the menu - very important when dining with someone who needs to be gluten-free!
We will return for another meal this stay in Palm Springs.
Copleys looks very promising. Its history is old glamour Hollywood being associated somehow with Cary Grant. The Maitre d was unresponsive when I tried to initiate polite chit chat as he showed us to our table. Again, we were tourists and a heterosexual couple!
Palm Spings has lots of top notch places to eat, and this came recommended by friends who live in the adjacent ‘Movie Colony’ who love the place & even got married there. I can understand that as the garden has trees with lights in and a fire pit, it isromantic at night.
The food was excellent, the waiter warmed to us as my husband made a few light-hearted comments to him during the meal and the bill was brought swiftly. We didn’t feel inclined to linger.
The ambiance is wonderful. Everything was wonderful except two things. 1. Food was not warm; 2. Bottle of Champagne was not cold. That was very disappointing. Nice place but would recommend when you order tell them it is important the food be warm otherwise it comes luke warm.
michelin caliber service. owner/operator. creative, yet comfort food. good wine list and cocktails. From ahi taco appetizer, to foie gras brulee with meaty duck, scallops with spicy pork meatballs and finally moist date bread pudding and homemade ice cream for dessert, not a bite left on our plates....
