Looked forward to another Copley restaurant for inventive, quality food. Menu held no surprises - similar to many other restaurants. The Happy Hour menu was better than the dinner.
Food was tasty and well prepared. Had the pork belly and short rib. Desert sampler really was just one bites. Was put off with total casualness of the dining room. Would have liked white linens to match the prices.

We had a reservation at 9am on Easter morning and our table was ready when we arrived. We were greeted by smiling hostesses and shown to our table. We sat on the patio. Since the restaurant and hotel are newly opened it was not crowded. The decor is very contemporary and we usually prefer a more traditional (cozy) decor. However, the chairs were comfortable. Since the patio faces the street there is some traffic noise but it wasn't too bad. We liked the menu and we enjoyed our breakfast very much. We asked to see the dinner menu and we will probably try eating dinner there soon.

Awesome meal, incredible service and fun atmosphere with incredible décor and vibe! The food is every bit as delicious as I knew it would be--how could it not be with the incredible team of Tony Marchese and Andrew and Juliana Copley? Fairly priced and hi quality meal. Will go back any chance I can!

When two of your favourite restaurants enter into a new venture together expectation are high. A first trip to this eatery proved not to disappoint.
The decor was slick retro Palm Springs, the service was good, but most important the food was delicious! Some of the dishes enjoyed were ahi tuna poke, butternut roasted squash soup, poached pear with Coachella dates, Berkshire pork schnitzel with the bacon brussel sprouts, seared salmon with forbidden rice and the evening specials also sounded “special”.
We will return whether it be to the large u-shaped bar or the restaurant to enjoy the buzz of success A C 3 exhibits.
(Just a warning, keep in mind sunset in the Desert when booking those prime tables no blinds available. Perhaps in the future..???)

I came in for breakfast and requested the patio. Mel was our server and was very attentive. I love the open patio space, it’s a new favorite in the area. Everyone loved their meals, Mel recommended the Benedict which my friend LOVED. We also tried the fried chicken waffle bites, vanilla pancakes, scrambled eggs, and the chicken apple sausage. Everything was fantastic! Not to mention the Basil Smash cocktail which was the perfect amount of sweet and citrusy. Will be back very soon!
