Copley's on Palm Canyon

Once of my favorite restaurants in Palm Springs is Copleys on Palm Canyon. Situated in the former Cary Grant estate, Copley's features "contemporary American cuisine" with an unusual twist. They make many of their dishes using fresh herbs grown in the garden on premises. With appetizers such as Hawaiian Ahi Tacos, Roasted Butternut Squash Soup and Roasted Pumpkin Ravioli, it is easy to be lulled into a state of bliss. Some of my favorite entrees include Prosciutto Wrapped Muscovy Duck Breast, Lobster Pot Pie, Macadamia Nut Crusted Mahimahi and Tandoori Breast of Chicken. They have a marvelous wine list, fantastic desserts and terrific service. Juliana and Greg (co-owners) are marvellous hosts. Together with Chef Andrew Copley they make guests feel welcome and like Ohana (that's Hawaiian for "family"). Next time you are in Palm Springs, be sure to stop by Copley's and enjoy one of the best meals money can buy.

I agree with you on Copley's. Last year my wife was diagnosed with a terminal illness and one of the things she wanted to do while she was still well enough to travel was to fly back to Palm Springs and dine at Copley's. We did and it really made her happy. I'll always appreciate that restaurant and the great memories it gave Carlie.

Did you eat all seven of those dishes you took pictures of? Did they comp them since you were "reviewing" them for your site. =)
