Nice Dinner Date Spot in SLC
Second visit to the Copper Onion - the menu was very fresh and featured local meats and cheese. I ordered the steak (medium rare) and it came out on the medium well end. The steak was definitely a larger serving size versus the trout filet, which two of my coworkers ordered. They had room for dessert though. Overall, lovely dining experience. The outside seating looked to be great if the weather was fitting. Definitely recommend for a nice dinner in SLC.

Once again...SUPERB service&meal!!!
Once again, we had an incredible meal at Copper Onion. From the bone marrow, and salads, to the halibut, strip steak and pork chop...not a complaint was heard. Everyone loved the flavors!

Perfect as Usual
This was our 2 year anniversary of our first date at Copper Onion and I'd say, if anything, the restaurant has improved overall, but it's always been just right. The servers are always friendly and professional, the food has been nothing but excellent, especially the Batatas Bravas and Copper Onion Burger. Definitely our go-to place for any romantic milestone.

Fried Pork Belly........
We picked Copper Onion because they have Fried Pork Belly on the menu. It turns out to be one of the best we have had for a long long time. We ordered the first one and then re-ordered another one after our main course. The bone marrow was very tasty. The cheese and meat board was nice too. We had all the local cheese and meat.
We sat outside because it was pretty warm and noisy inside. It was the only reason the noise level is moderate.

casual urban French farmhouse!
Country French menu, local ingredients, and refreshingly non-annoying hip vibe combine for a unique dining experience. Great stuff downtown.

We don't live in SLC, but this place was recommended to us, so we gave it a try. We had Sunday brunch on the patio, and it was terrific. Great brunch food--standard fare along with some more creative brunch combinations--with great service. We loved sitting on the patio and enjoying a quiet Sunday morning. We will definitely return for dinner next time we are in Utah again.

Copper Onion is nice downtown cafe
The Copper Onion was not as upscale as we had expected. We were denied a reservation later than 5:30 pm, but while there until 7:00 the restaurant was only about 10%-50% filled. I realize that the kitchen might not have been able to keep up with much more, but it just looked bad. The portions (lamb ragout and rainbow trout) were small, but sufficient. Many restaurants give way too big portions.

Copper Onion Experience Is Golden
What a great experience! We had chosen The Copper Onion from a website review since we were visiting Salt Lake City and wanted some place special to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was just the two of us and we mentioned to our waitress at the start that we wanted to take it slow. She was very accomandating dropping by at discrete intervals to check on us. Everything we order was fantastic from the chauterie, to the entrees to the "dessert" drinks afterwards. It was perfect for us -- fine dining at a price for those of us who don't have a champagne budget. I wished we lived there so we could go again!

Great food and service
One of our favorite eating spots. Bone marrow, pork belly, trout, carrots, ice cream!

Fantastic Food and Service!
Came all the way from SF to visit Salt Lake City and found The Copper Onion on Yelp. It did not disappoint! We shared 2 entrees and 2 small plates between 3 people and it was the perfect amount of food...ALL of which was delicious! We probably only had to wait about 5 minutes before food started showing up to the table which is pretty much unheard of in CA. Our server was super nice too and his Rose recommendation was spot on! Wish we would have stayed for dessert but we were only in SLC for 36 hours and wanted to try other places.
Beef stroganoff was tasty, goat cheese salad was pretty tasty too (no idea what they put in the dressing but it was so yum!), pork belly was GREAT (but how can you mess up pork belly, really?).

While I'm not thrilled with
While I'm not thrilled with the atmosphere and noise level here, the food experience more than makes up for that inconvenience. Wow! That was the best beef stroganoff I've EVER had. The meat was so tender it almost melted in my mouth. The noodles were homemade and fresh. I've been there before and liked the Carbonara too. Its the only place in the states where I've found it like the one I had in Rome that was to die for!
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a five people in our group. We ordered many different items and everything was delicious. If you make it to Copper Onion you need to order the hamburger!!!!! It is amazing!
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed a nice lunch here with some great specials to choose from. The wine pairing suggestions were great.
7/24/2013 5:00:00 PM
Dishes and drinks were all excellent. We had the salmon, pasta carbonara and Pork chop.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love this place! Great vibe, awesome food, and fantastic service. I highly recommend Copper Onion to anyone in or visiting Salt Lake City.
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is the best restaurant in Salt Lake, in my opinion. I have enjoyed EVERYTHING I've had here. The service is great. The drinks are fantastic. The food is unique and delicious.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I had a memorably delicious meal here, then we went next door and watched a movie at the artsy theatre next door. It was a perfect night.
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
My boyfriend and I came here for brunch and it was absolutely amazing. The woman who waited on us was kind, funny, and made some great recommendations. I had the BLT special and it had the best tomatoes on it that I think I've ever had. The whole sandwich was delicious. We also started with the patatas bravas which were so delicious that we kept eating them before they'd cooled down. We could not have asked for better food, service, or pricing and will definitely be coming back here!

Urban city feel
Good food, packed and noisy. If
you need your n.y. Or s.f. Fix for food and atmosphere I would recommend it highly. very good food and a hip cool bistro atmosphere.
In the middle of Salt Lake City . Go early or make a res. Casual and fun.

Lives up to the hype
Went for our anniversary. Our waitress was incredibly knowledgeable about the menu and directed us to some amazing choices. Loved every single bite. Beef stroganoff was sublime. Sautéed corn side dish was incredible. Food quality was impressive. Will definitely be back.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
I took foodie friends from out of town and they were blown away. The food, as always, was fabulous. The service was great. The waiter was knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. All in all, it couldn't have been better.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great brunch spot
Whenever we visit Salt Lake, we go here for Sunday brunch. The food is great and imaginative, and the mood is relaxed. There's a great patio to enjoy.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food and service was excellent.
Food and service was excellent. Portion sizes and the price were reasonable. My only complaint was that it was a noisy and hard to talk to the person sitting across my table.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Hot spot in Salt Lake City
Our daughter & husband recommended this restaurant. They were correct in their assessment. We loved the food & the waitstaff was very attentive. This would be a great place to visit again whenever we are back in SLC. We would definitely recommend this fun place with very unique & original meals.
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent and unique food
The food at Copper Onion is well prepared and the presentation is superb. However, it is not for basic pallets. Some of the items and/or ingredients will be better appreciated by well traveled tongues.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful brunch! Perfect Eggs Benedict......steak fries, unique and tasty! We love the Cooper Onion!!!! We have never had the Brunch before but we will be back. Great for Sunday brunch or early dinner. We live in Farmington and nothing good is open on Sunday!
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect Power Lunch
I brought a colleague here for a lunch and it was the perfect place to impress while being healthy.
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were told by many people that the copper onion was as good as it gets for dining in Salt Lake City. Of course after drooling over their menu online we just had to check it out. We're so glad we did! Our server was wonderful and gave great recommendations- and even gave us the recipe for my husband's new favorite cocktail - the copper smash. Dining at the copper onion will now be at the top of our to-do list every time we're in SLC, I guarantee it!
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Unbelievably fresh great tasting food! Must have some great produce, meats were delicious too! A little tight and crowded for a table for two but it was a Saturday night. Highly recommend.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved The Copper Onion!
The brunch at the Copper Onion was truly amazing! Ingredients are sourced locally and combined in amazing ways. The waiters were helpful and attentive. It was so much fun to chat with the chef in the open kitchen and get his recommendations for his daily favs! Will return here again and again!
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good service
The outstanding service made the night's evening so much better. All the dishes were simply delicious. We'll be to return the next we're in town.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed the Eggs Benedict, hash browns and braised spinach. Very well plated and portioned. I would have this dish again and again.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
A wonderful place to take friends who have dined all over the world, to show off Salt Lake City dining.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Starters are great - something for everyone. Pricing is not crazy. We'll be back!
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great but loud.
The food is excellent and the service is wonderful, but the volume is absurdly loud. I should not have to yell to other members of my party. That's just unacceptable. Something must be done about the volume. It's annoying and uncomfortable.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Celebrating a friends birthday was a blast at the copper onion. They put a candle on the dessert but didn't sing any catchy birthday song. I really appreciated this, it made the occasion special without tarnishing the experience for us or others around us. It fit with the feel of the place.

Best Breakfast in Utah
I've heard nothing but praise for those that have been to The Copper Onion. After finally trying it for myself, I can't say that I was disappointed.
This place had, by far, the best breakfast in the state. The Sunday brunch menu was more extensive that most I've seen, and had some interesting choices. I ended up going with the simple Biscuits & Gravy with a side of eggs and hash browns. Although the biscuits were a bit on the small side, the awesome gravy made up for that. I also tried my wife's steak she got with her eggs, and it was well-cooked and seasoned.
The best time to get there would be when brunch starts at 10:30, because around 11:00 or so it tends to get loud.

Great selection of Craft Beers
Located in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City, Copper Onion has great food, drink & service. Trout entree was very good but too salty. The beef stroganoWe started with some cheese and olives, also excllent. When in downtown, definitely dine at the Copper Onion.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
I'd heard great things about this restaurant from family and friends, so I made a reservation to celebrate our 3-year anniversary. This restaurant was very courteous and prompt. The server was excellent and we never felt rushed or out-of-place. The food was interesting and delicious. And it was all reasonably priced. Our only complaint was the amount of noise. It seemed a little loud for a romantic dinner, but I wouldn't see a problem going with a group and casually dining. Overall it was a great experience and I'd go back again.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Two words - beef stroganoff
I've tried several items here and all items very good. That being said, I tend to revert back to the beef stroganoff as I have no idea how they can make an old fashioned dish taste so fresh and amazing.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
The ingredients for the dishes were great. I felt tier brunch beverages were slightly overpriced. My experience was good, but I wasn't impressed. I would much rather go to brunch somewhere else
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
A nice time!
Dinner was great--the service was fantastic, it's great when the servers are knowledgable and excited about the food they are serving, the food was solid. I'm a vegetarian, and there was plenty, but the meat dishes looked incredible!
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good all round
We came for a Saturday lunch (2pm) and the restaurant was packed but emptied out soon after. Both waiters looking after our table were helpful & friendly enough (in a non-over-the-top way). I has the fettuccine carbonara (really tasty, especially the smoked bacon), he had the burger (so juicy, tender, with just a hit of charry darkness on the outside - perfection!). No complaints here!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Everything about the Copper Onion is top notch. The staff is very good and helpful, but mostly the food quality is one of the best in Utah. The stroganoff is maybe the best meal I've ever tried. Definitely one of my favs.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Reliable bistro food with
Reliable bistro food with a bit of an authentic Parisian flair, at reasonable prices. No surprise that this spot is always hopping!

Beaujolais Nouveau Night
We dined because they brought in small barrels of the Beaujolias Nouveau and it didn't disappoint.
We dined on small plates the best being the mussels. Perfection. Thanks again looking forward to it next year!
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Homey atmosphere with fine food.
Busy, noisy, fun atmosphere. The service was very good and the food was terrific. I can see now why Copper Onion's so popular. Recommended and my wife and I will definitely return.

Copper Onion -- Great Service
Ate brunch and dinner on the same day! The dessert and cheese menu is great. Wine list is limited but good quality. Service was outstanding. For brunch I had the huevos rancheros. Very good, don't skip the pulled pork! At dinner, the pork belly appetizer was the highlight of the meal. The steak was good, but the cut of meat was not the highest grade. It was cooked and seasoned very well. The dumplings were good, not great, but overall, the meal was very, very good. I would recommend it highly and will return myself to try some of the items that looked delicious!
11/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
My Favorite Restaurant
My wife and I are frequent visitors here and have been since shortly after they opened. The food and service quality has always been superb. We will continue to frequent Copper Onion as regularly as our time/wallet allows.
11/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
Delicious and delightful
It was our second time eating there and we will be back.
