    Food was good, nice variety, but seemed to run out of items, with a wait to have it replenished. I could understand that if it was crowded, but at this point it was not overly busy. Also, large gaps between visits from waitress.

    We used to think of Copelands Cheesecacke Bisrto as our "must go to spot" whenever we would get to New Orleans, we have recomended it to many friends through out the years. we hadn't been to Copelands In the last 3-4 years and were eagerly awaiting eating there on our trip to NewO this weekend. What a disappointment.... The service was so so at the best ...and the food was nothing special. ....it seems that both have slipped mightily. I would say service was a 3 ( it seemed like our server just didn't care) and the food a 5 at the best. In a city chock full of great resturants, I sadly say that I can't recommend Copelands any more, we did find two gems, in a place called Tommy' and Maxine's both I'd rate at 9+ easily !

    This is only a partial review - we booked a reservation on OpenTable and after checking in and waiting 25 minutes, we decided to leave. Having a reservation doesn't mean much at this establishment, so before going, make sure this is a place you are committed to dining, time is not an issue for you, and you don't mind being treated like a number. We didn't eat at the restaurant at all -but OpenTable requires a rating for the whole dining experience. I selected "good" for the food because it did look enticing. The service at the entry area was very unresponsive so that's why the low rating. The dining area looked like people were engaging well and it was not terribly noisy even with very large parties present (showers, birthday parties).

    We have eaten here before on a couple of occassions when we were visiting NOLA and our service and food was outstanding! This time however I was very disappointed :/ We were seated as per our reservation time but waited over 20 minutes for someone to even acknowledge our table and it was by the Manager on duty, not the wait staff. Our food was outstanding and just wish our service would have been the same. The manager on duty was very gracious and understanding and took care of us.

    The Cheesecake Bistro, St Charles location was a perfect choice. It's location was convenient to the central business district and our hotels. The St. Charles streetcar put route allowed easy access to the restaurant. We enjoyed the opportunity to dine together. The prices were affordable for cocktails, appetizers and entrees. The service was great and we have all agreed on our next visit we will definitely visit this facility and recommend Cheesecake Bistro to family and friends.

    Server got our order wrong. Food was cold. The special for the 1/2 price bottle wine was the best deal of the night. The special for the steaks was average: Petite Filet's were horizontal cuts; vertical cuts are better.

    My husband and I like to pick a new place to eat every time we get to go to New Orleans. We chose Copelands. Bad choice. First of all, the restaurant was dark, not much lighting. Even worse than no lighting, it was sooooo noisy, downright loud!! Then, our server was incredibly slow and food preparation was also slow. It took us over an hour to get our entrees. The manager did give us free cheesecake due to our wait (cheesecake was spectacular)! The remainder of the food was not as spectacular. My husband had a steak that he did not finish. My husband is a steak LOVER, so for him not to finish a steak says a lot. Honestly, I cannot remember what I are, so that tells you how memorable the place was. We definitely will not be going back.

    It is often said that you can easily find somewhere to eat on Father's Day; but this year at Cheesecake Bistro that saying was simply not true! We were happy we went online & made a reservation! It appeared that everybody & their dad were taking advantage of the delicious foods that were available. My son took his dad to my son's favorite venue & I invited myself. My husband really took advantage of the situation! He ordered the mouth watering spinach dip for starters. His entree, BBQ Shrimp arrived piping hot just the way he likes it. He ordered a half priced bottle of wine & ended his meal with a hunk of white chocolate strawberry cheesecake. Geeze! I was full watching him eat. Our waitress was wonderful! It was the place to be!

    COPELANDS BISTRO ON ST. CHARLES SERVES UP A GREAT TIME AT THE SUNDAY JAZZ BRUNCH. SERVICE WAS WONDERFUL. CHELSEA WAS TOP NOTCH IN SERVICE AND CHEERFULNESS. THE YOUNG LADY WORKING AS FLOOR MANAGER WAS A TREASURE AND SHE GAVE US A $15.00 COUPON FOR OUR NEXT VISIT. THE LOVELY YOUNG LADY AT THE RESERVATION DESK WAS CHEERFUL AND HELPFUL. IN SHORT YA'LL DID AL COPELAND PROUD AND HE WAS A PERFECTIONIST. THE FOOD AS ALWAYS WAS GREAT. I HAVE TO RECOMMEND THE NEW ORLEANS CHICKEN FRIED CHICKEN TO EVERYONE. THE FIRST BITE TOOK ME BACK TO MY FIRST BITE OF POPEYE'S CHICKEN WHEN AL WAS IN CHARGE, IT WAS PURE HEAVEN. YOU CAN STILL GET A LITTLE BIT OF THAT WONDERFUL FLAVOR AGAIN WITH THE NEW ORLEANS CHICKEN FRIED CHICKEN. 5 STAR SUNDAY JAZZ BRUNCH.

    Although we have a Copeland's in our city, it is never at the top of my list of places to go. I ended up going to the one in New Orleans because it was close to our hotel. The food and atmosphere was good. The service was not bad but believe the waitress could have been a little more attentive. Overall a good place to dine.

    Really awful service - drinks were always empty, server never to be found. One in our party ordered a filet and it came beyond well done. The replacement arrived when we were all ready for the check. Our third time here with food issues and we won't be back. Too many good restaurants in the city.

    It was my wife and I anniversary. The food and ambiance were good however, after we got our drinks it took about 10 minutes for the waiter to come back and take our order. We ordered an appetizer which took so long to come out, it was served with our entrees. Our reason for going was of course for the cheese cake, upon finishing our entrees it took another 15 minutes for the waiter to take out dessert order because he was at the dessert counter having a conversation that we could see from our table. The coup de gras was when we finally finished our dessert that finally came it took 20 minutes to get the check and when he brought it the waiter actually said, I understand if you don't leave a tip. My wife and I were floored!!!

    We stayed at the Avenue Plaza and Copeland's was walking distance from the hotel which was very convienent!! They had a wonderful Buffett Saturday morning with live music which was great since we're visiting for the Superbowl. There was an abundance of food and choices and it was all delicious!! The fried chicken was so yummy!! We also dined here after the Superbowl on our way back to the hotel. It was late at night and though the food was a little slow coming out of the kitchen it was still a pleasant experience. The staff was very nice and kept the cudtomers patient as it was very late at night. I was amazed at how the staff kept their composer in the middle of all the chaos!! Well done!!

    My family and I are new to the area and were looking for somewhere nice to celebrate my wifes birthday. Copelands in New Orleans came recommended by a co-worker. The place was great. The staff was very vibrant, and the seating options were just perfect (various booths or tables). The background music was there; meaning just right. It really reminded me of a more mellow hard-rock cafe. The menu items were not over-priced for what you get and we really had a great time.

    My experience was awful. The first thing the waitress says is Im sorry but we are out of a few things tonight. Okay thats cool,we arent picky. Then she reads off half the menu. Secondly our child was with us and shes one , we ordered her a grill cheese. The waitress didnt worn us that the grilledcheese would be a four piece of bread and one slice of cheese. What i had was suppose to be steak. It was awful and very little food for so much money. Horrible. Awful. But the alcholic beverage was pretty good and the cheesecake was alright. Mcdonalds has this place beat. I wouldnt recommend that place to my dog even if they were giving out free bones.

    Significantly delayed seating for an 8pm reservation (seated at 845). This was Christmas Eve however. Combination of crowd (large groups being seated), and seemed like less servers as some sections were not open. They were as efficient and pleasant as they could be once seated. I would/will return however.

    Had better at this Cheesecake Bistro. I guess because it was Christmas, the place was understaffed. My husband and I ordered a seafood platter and there were 2 oysters, one shrimp, and 4 pieces of fish. On top was a pile high of onion rings. On the bottom, the plate overflowed with French fries. We were extremely disappointed because the food is usually a lot better.

    It's a uniquely New Orleans take on a familiar national chain. Food is, as expected in NO, a cut above. Atmosphere is eclectic, fun and comfortable. Service was a bit slow this visit but still attentive. Prices are reasonable for the quality and quantity. Take the streetcar Uptown (after construction on the line is complete) and enjoy!
