Diner Reviews
  • "Love this place! Food is always delicious and service outstanding!"

  • "Nice dining experience, nestled in Saratoga. Great food, reasonable prices, go there once every other month, or so. Not your ordinary Mexican restaurant, but if you want that go to Chevys. This is more unique Mexican dishes, served up in just the right portions. My lamb dish was wonderful. The margaritas are fantastic, as is the variety of tequilas offered. But, hush. Don't tell too many people about it, otherwise this nice restaurant will be over-run with new diners and I won't be able to get a table!"

  • "As usual, a very nice meal. The pork belly was a very hearty entree, which will provide enough for two great lunches as well."

  • "Was pretty disappointed with our recent dinner. The food was not what it used to; everything just missed by a little. The sauce on the chile relleno (usually a favorite) was bland, and even the salsas were not their old selves. Casa de Cobre has been one of my favorite restaurants, so I hope it was just an off night and not the beginning of the end for one of the few decent places in Saratoga."

  • "We went to this restaurant for a special occasion. The location is where La Fondue used to be at. Low ceilings, choppy rooms, loud and low light-average ambiance. No free chips/salsa but we accepted that as this was meant to be a high end restaurant. We ordered 2 appetizers, one was tiny with a few slices of octopus and the other was well prepared but unseasoned which made it bland=both $15 each. We ordered one Margarita ($13) and 1 lemonade with a refill ($5 per)-not cheap but not terrible. Then for main course we ordered the beef which was very salty but plentiful and the scallops (4-5 scallops on shredded vegetables)-$34 each. 2 appetizers, 2 mains, 2 drinks plus tip=$150. Average to OK food; average to OK ambiance; outrageous pricing."

  • "I ordered the Paella and my wife ordered the Blue Crab Tortilla. The Paella tasked like they poured a can red pepper all over it. The rice was mushy and the clams and shrimp flavors were gone. There was one small piece of meat. I think it was a fried piece of Spam. It was so hard a I could not bite into it. It was so bad I could not believe it. My wife's dish was tasteless. Only the beer and the chips were worth eating. At $29 for the Paella and around $25 for the Blue crab, this diner was a total bust. I will never go back. The food has gone way down hill and by looks of the amount of people in the place on a Saturday night, you can tell this place is going down hill."

  • "We dined on super bowl night and were the only guests. Food came out cold and tasteless. We have frequented this restaurant many times and this was not up to it's usual performance. disappointing!"

  • "Stick with the Michoacan specialties, and you will be extremely happy! Their chicken is outrageous, and the pozole is wonderful. Lamb and Goat also get high marks. The guacamole is fantastic and the Margs are wonderful! We love this restaurant and the people who work there."

  • "Enjoyed our meal here; our server was very friendly and attentive. Guacamole is pricey but always yummy. Ceviche portion is huge! Menu is big and varied so there's something for everyone."

  • "W just moved to the bay area about 6 months ago. My husband and I are total "foodies" and are out to try new restaurants every week. Casa De Cobre is DEFINITELY one of my favorites and we will be back. The service was attentive, pleasant and patient (we had our kids with us). The margaritas were great - sweetened with agave vs the syrup junk. The food - AMAZING. Chips are crisp, fresh and warm served with 3 different kinds of salsa. The quesadilla was the best I've ever tasted. My husband's pulled brisket was tender and juicy. The only thing we didn't care for where the crab enchiladas, only b/c I'm not a big fan of the authentic red enchilada sauce not b/c the dish wasn't cooked to perfection."

  • "First off, don't bother with the house margaritas, at least the blended ones. I like the zingy taste of lime, but there was none to be detected in the mound of ice set in a stylish glass. I could taste the Triple Sec, slightly, but mostly it was a glass of slushy ice. The best part of the Dungeness crab enchiladas was the fresh tomato sauce. Unfortunately the sauce would have been better suited to a plate of pasta (if they added some garlic). Tasty Mexican spices were not anywhere to be found. The goat stew that my husband ordered was essentially a bowl of watery broth with some tasteless meat and a huge hunk of skin from an unidentified source. Oh, the chips and salsa were fine."

  • "This was truly a neighborhood find. Loved the food and the service. My steak was exceptionally tasty and perfectly medium rare as I like it. My daughters Tuna was awesome. Ceviche was good too. Lovely copper colors all around. Got a noisy table to the back, near the kitchen door that kept swinging and a racket from the kitchen could be heard. That was the only spoiler to an otherwise perfect new years evening. Will definitely go back. Thank you for the fantastic service."

  • "I love Casa de Cobre. The food is always good and the staff is friendly. The chairs can be a little uncomfortable which is why I rated ambiance 4 stars instead of five. Other than that, this is a great spot for a date night or girl's night out!"

  • "This is not your typical Mexican restaurant. It is higher end, consistent with being in Saratoga. The dishes are different from what you will find at just about any other Mexican restaurant. We enjoyed it."

  • "We went to Casa De Cobre for the first time and we were pleasantly surprised. We absolutely love mexican food and have not found anything in the area that we would call a staple so we tried Casa De Cobre and found that it was a mix of authentic mexican food with a flare... a positive flare for a change... We plan on going back on many occasions."

  • "My husband and I have been here a few times and always enjoy ourselves. The food and drinks are always delicious. We shared the special, which they halfed and plated for us without us even having to request it. I love that attention to detail. We also started with a really delicious small plate of different meats and cheeses. The service was very attentive, patient, and detailed."

  • "Food was great. Staff was awesome. They got us a separate room and the kids ran around like there was no tomorrow.Did I mention food was great? Not your usual Latin fare. Every dish on the menu had a twist and a flair to it."

  • "Paella, ceviche, and great guacamole with strawberries and bacon. Had a hibiscus jalapeño margarita that was awesome. This is not a Chevys or Pedro's, it is upscale dining and the prices reflect that. It's nice to have a choice besides French or Italian in the village."

  • "Great food! I had the halibut special and it was delicious. Wonderful flavor combinations. And The Purist margarita was excellent! Highly recommend this restaurant."
