    The food was ok, it filled our need to have something for late dinner after a big lunch. They got us in and out - the chicken schnitzel was a little dry, the beef stroganoff gravy was watery rather than my preferred creamier sauce. The pastries looked delicious but we were too full to try any. Service was competent and efficient but not really a personal touch

    Some people think of Copenhagen as their go to spot for buying fabulous Danish pastries, coffeecakes and breads, others think no place has coffee as good....others love stopping by their ice cream bar for a scoop or a shake, other crave their freshed squeezed juice bar, me I love going to dinner at Copenhagen. In summer the big picture windows slide open to take in the parade of beautiful people on The Avenue. On the recent visit one of their excellent soups accompanies a mesmerizing plate of oh so tender short ribs! Their Chinese Chicken salad, was a huge bowl of crunchiness with a wonderful sesame and ginger spiked dressing studded with tender chunks of chicken, cilantro, green onion and sesame seeds. Reliably great food. Excellent!

    Everyone knows that Copenhagen has THE BEST breakfast, lunch and bakery in town but the best kept secret is what a great dinner spot it is. The staff transforms the space albeit somewhat with table cloths and candles and serves up a solid menu of homestyle Danish classics. So it's not super gourmet or fancy but what they do, they do really well. Prices are so reasonable and Copenhagen is our go-to for Sunday or a weeknight dinner. The staff is also terrific, so nice. The wine options are probably the only area that could use some improvement but the prices are excellent!

    We make a weekly trip to Copenhagen Restaurant for fine dining. Whether we eat off the special's Menu or the standard Menu we are never disappointed. The food is always well prepared and cooked to perfection, fish, chicken or beef. The portions are appropriate. The service is always great with water glasses and coffee being refilled without need of reminders. Sauces are always special and change weekly. They have made Birthday's and Anniversaries special.

    What a treasure this bakery/cafe is on The Avenue. It's a no-brainer that Copenhagen is excellent for b'fast and lunch but it's also an excellent option for dinner. They add white table cloths, candles and flowers and the menu is full of delectable old world specialties like Frikadeller, Schnitzel and Beef Stroganoff. Everything they offer is done very well and is a great value. There are always seafood and meat specials and all entrees come with soup or salad and the freshest bread in town. Don't expect a high end gourmet fancy meal but a homey, friendly solid dining experience with a little B'Game Avenue people watching. Desserts are AWESOME! We go here at least 4 times per month and everything is always consistently good.

    Always a pleasure to come here for a casual dinner. The staff is very welcoming and kind plus the food is always expertly prepared. The venue and menu are certainly nothing fancy but they do a good job of dressing up the place for dinner and serving generous portions of interesting comfort food with a Danish twist. This place reminds me of a European style casual eatery found all over Europe with the on-premises bakery and all day dining. Copenhagen is consistently good and our go-to almost every week.

Beautiful decor and large windows to view the action on the street. Chicken and lamb are always great. Dessert is okay , odd since they are part of a magnificent bakery but the pie, and cakes are not on their dessert menu. Oh well.

    The food was good and the wine excellent but there were so many tables in a small space that it was impossible to carry on a conversation without including the people at the adjoining tables, The desserts were both beautiful and tasty. If you like chocolate desserts, this is the place to go as long as you don't wish to talk to your companions. Since this restaurant is also a bakery; it might be wiser just to purchase the dessert and take it home.

    Came here for valentines dinner with me and two other people. We ordered some appetizers and they were good the prawns were tasty and the tomato and avocado was good. For my main entree I ordered the capellini, when I got it, it was served to me in a flat plate (who does that?) it was really watery and all of the juice was falling over onto me as well as the table, it was not what I expected, usually pasta is served in a bowl. The tables were way to close, the table next to us was literally chiming in every chance they got to our conversation, it was annoying. Can't say I love the food and atmosphere that much to be back anytime soon, that pasta presentation just killed it for me...

    We enjoyed our dinner at Copenhagen over the weekend. We had not eaten here before and found the restaurant to be a charming neighborhood eatery. The food was good…comfort food style. The wine list was mediocre at best and could use an upgrade. All in all we enjoyed our meal and would most likely return when in town.
