    While the crowd here tends to be a bit grey-haired, you have to give it to them - they know where to eat! My second time here and this place is topping my list for best places to eat on the Peninsula. I only wish they served dinner every night! Food is fresh and imaginative, the flavors are so happy, they dance across your palate. My taste buds won't be happy until I return!

    This is a wonderful little neighborhood gem. Everything is always fresh, hot and very well-prepared. It isn't a fancy menu but very homey and the Danish specialties are great. All bread and desserts are made fresh daily on the premises. Not many places can make that claim anymore. Still loving Copenhagen!

    Copenhagen is so consistently excellent. We love it and eat dinner 2 - 3 times per month. The menu is different enough with the Danish specialties and everything is so well prepared. Ice-cold salad plates and piping hot entrees. The staff is always so nice. This is not a fancy gourmet type place but it is so homey and an excellent value. We still love it all all these years!

    Even though it seems to be a haven for senior citizens, Copenhagen is always consistently great. Everything they do, they do well. The entrees are always hot, the salad is always super fresh and served on chilled plates with homemade croutons and the bread is freshly baked on the premises and of course the desserts are TDF. Service is also friendly and prompt. Copenhagen is our go-to when we want a good value and great food.

    This was our first time eating at the restaurant and as expected Service was awful. Our waitress checked on us once after we received our meal and that was it. It was difficult to capture her attention as she was busy flirting with the guy working in the bakery. I had the steak salad and that was awful. I couldve purchased a better salad from a local fast food chain. Service has always been an issue at Coppenhagen - if it weren't for their delicious cakes and pastries. I would not return!!!

    Copenhagen is always a treasure to visit. The friendly waitstaff recognize you and acknowledge you in a very pleasant way. This restaurant by night, cafe by day and scrumptious Danish bakery all the time serves any need or desire. I had my favorite, their divine Chinese Chicken Salad as my dinner. They had many interesting dinner specials as well as a regular menu of yummy pasta dishes, burgers and Danish fare. It is just an easy and extremely enjoyable choice on the Peninsula. Well worth it to just sample their delicious baked goods, my favorite is the French Chocolate coffee cake with dark chocolate, marzipan over a disk of brioche style dough.Or any of their fabulous pastries and cakes straight out of the past pastry shop in Europe

    I usually LOVE Copenhagen but my last 2 visits were a little off from our usual great experience. Service was a little slow - was it the kitchen? Maybe and my white sea bass fish special was a little fishy smelling. Hope it's just a temporary lapse and on our next visit things will be better!

    So it isn't the fanciest restaurant but what they do, they do very well. A great menu of comfort foods and excellent salads, homemade bread and desserts from the awesome bakery side of the business and a dependably great spot for dinner. Excellent for breakfast and lunch as well but the great dinner service is a nice surprise! We love this restaurant and have dinner here at least once a month.

    Service was very good. We asked for an outside table to accommodate my dog, which was nicely done! I appreciate a restaurant that welcomes doggies. While I brought water for my own pooch, another woman brought her dog and the staff brought him his own bowl of water. That was very nice. Food is good, although a little pricey for dinner with small portions. Pastries were yummy as was the dutch crunch bread. Will be back, but will make sure it is for breakfast or lunch.
