Always good food and service at Copeland’s. Went for happy hour this time - good drink and food special prices but they just introduced a new menu. Hits included the blackened shrimp quesadillas and crab stuffed shrimp. Misses included the margherita flatbread which tasted and presented like cheap frozen cheese pizza. Stick with the Cajun/creole specialties here and you won’t go wrong!

While It was January 1, and it might have been very busy on 12/31, I still have some concerns, lettuce was very wilted on our appetizer plate, and the wine glasses set on the table were all very dirty and I had to send mine back.

We had a reservation and we told the hostess, but she still wanted to seat us in the bar area.
When I repeated that I had a reservation she said the dining room was very busy and again wanted to seat us in the bar. I said no. She then led us to a booth in the dining room. What’s the point of taking reservations if you don’t want to honor them.
Our waitress was very nice. The food however not as good as we remembered and they were out of several menu items.
Not sure we’ll be going back.

I realize it was a night where staffing may have been an issue (Christmas Eve), but we waited what I consider an excessive amount of time for our appetizer and then again between the appetizer and main course. And I had a side salad which was brought to me almost 1/3rd the way through my main course. Food wise things were good, but when you wait like that it tends to make the evening less enjoyable. From when we arrived to when we got up to leave (paid cash which meant not waiting for change or signing a credit card) it was over 1.5 hours.

Copeland's was one of my favorite restaurants many moons ago -- were talking about 15+ years ago. The last time I ate at Copeland's, it was in Shreveport, LA. I remember the food being really, really good -- especially the shrimp and tasso pasta.
Because of the memories, I knew the next time I was near a Copeland's, I would want to go back. So, I was in the Dallas area for Thanksgiving week and decided to check out this location.
Unfortunately, I was disappointed all the way around, as was the group with me. We went on a Sunday and they were offering a brunch buffet. The two in my party went for that, but I came for the aforementioned pasta dish. While everything looked delicious, my party said the food was just okay. There wasn’t a single thing that jumped out to them that would make them return.
As for my shrimp and tasso pasta (it comes with bowtie pasta, but I substituted that for angel hair), it was blah. I remember the sauce being rich, creamy and flavorful. This was not. I had to add some parmesan cheese to punch it up a bit. But the biscuit was slamming though!
Service was … Let’s just say it appeared no one (except for the hostess) really wanted to be at work that day. Our server wasn’t too attentive (we had to stop another server for the parmesan cheese).
Lastly, when I attempted to use my Yelp check-in offer ($10 off of $30), the server said she needed to check with her manager to see if they accepted it. She came back and said, because they are a franchise and not corporate, I couldn’t use it. Huh? Then the offer shouldn’t not have come up for this location.

I wanted to love this place and was so excited to find something different for our date night. My caesar salad was like a bag salad at Kroger, didn't finish it. My entree was quite good, grilled chicken and yams. My husband batted 0. Got a bowl of crab bisque, it looked like it was poured from a can and literally jiggled, like jello. He ate what he could to not completely waste the money spent. Then his entree, terrible disappointment. He order the veal pasta dish (name I don't recall), but he was excited because it showed as a classic favorite. He literally could only eat 1/3 of the meat. Grissly, overcooked and just didn't taste right. His pasta and sauce was ok, so he was able to eat some of the dish. And paper straws, yuck! Give guests the option, they get soggy and are horrible when your lips touch them. Oh, and the napkins smelled weird...yes, read that right. Not sure if it was the batch of laundry, or just me being hypersensitive to scents, but weird smelling regardless.

Saving grace, prices weren't killer. 100% won't return, even if the chicken and yam dish was quite delish!!

We west for our anniversary, and had our teenage daughter and my MIL, who was visiting, along with us. It wasn't very crowded at the time, so we were able to get a spot with good lighting, which is helpful for my MIL. The music was a bit loud, which is a bit at odds with the furnishings. When you come in, it's subdued lighting, dark furniture, and just feels like it should have softer background music.
Food-we started with the hot crab claws app, which was great. Daughter had the steak small plate and loved it, which I told her she would, as I have had it before. Hubby had the stuffed catfish and really liked it. MIL had the salmon cobb salad. She liked it, but wished she had asked for the salmon to be cooked more done, instead of the usual medium. I had the pecan crusted ricochet catfish, which is always fantastic, although the corn fritters were a little spicy. The green beans were really good. All of us adults had to-go boxes.
Service was pretty good, except he spoke too fast for my MIL, and he would ask us how things were, etc, yet not really listen to the answer.
Before we went, I pulled up the menu for my MIL to go ahead and decide what she wanted, as she has a hard time reading small print menus. She was quite appreciative, and I was really glad that was an option.

We loved the crawfish bread. Service was pleasant but it took far too long to get drinks. Bread pudding was tasty but should have been warmer.

I can not recommend Copelands. I was visiting from out of town. I made a reservation which was confirmed by email. I arrived to a very busy and noisy restaurant to discover that "we don't take reservations on Friday and Saturday". When I told them that it had been confirmed by email, I received a shrug. I was seated 30 minutes later next to the bar. I had to shout to talk to the server who was very good and helpful. Food was ok - not great. Overall, the experience was disappointing.

It was a special birthday for my wife, and, having lived much of her life in Louisiana, Copeland's was her first choice. My first visit, and we were both pleased on all counts. Friendly, courteous, professional people, a very comfortable environment, a menu which was very pleasing, and the food was not only tasty and attractive, but nicely presented. Everything about our visit was first-rate, and we plan to return again son - and often! Highly recommended.

Our meals, service, and the atmosphere were all excellent. It was our Anniversary and we gave them a shot. Very glad we did. The only negative is parking. They are in the Hilton, which I wasn't aware of. Getting close parking to the restaurant was difficult.

Food was mediocre and I would not call it cajun. Prices were high for the quality of food and the fish was "fishy". Music selection blasting in the restaurant was that of a middle school girl and very annoying during dinner.

Went here for Mother’s Day Brunch. I was a little underwhelmed due to the place being a bit unorganized and not prepared for the amount of customers on a special day. Additionally, the food was mediocre in selection, taste and quality.
