We frequent often. But tonight it wasn’t good at all. Service was OFF. Perhaps she was a new server? Salad and soups (1st course) arrived different times. Asked numerous times for salad. No refills on water. Had to keep asking. My husbands dinner was burnt and he didn’t want to say anything’s a they server never came to check on us. My young son ordered a salad and I asked for the grilled chicken to be chopped so it’s easier for him to eat. They cut the breast into strips that weren’t cut thru, hence making it hard for him to eat. Again no server to ask so we did it ourselves.

We went to Copenhagen restaurant during a heat wave. Their air conditioner was either set on too high a temperature or just wasn’t working properly. I wish this restaurant would close down for a couple of days and repaint and do some redecorating. Decor is tired.

What l liked is that the restaurant offers good food for reasonable prices. The staff was friendly and didn't rush us through our meal. It was a good restaurant experience. If I were to recommend anything, it would be about the hard chairs we sat on. I luckily brought my own cushion, but it would be so easy to add padding to your free-standing chairs.

Went to dinner at Copenhagen for first time. We usually go for lunch. The veal scallopini was tender and quite tasty. It came with mashed potatoes and saute spinach. My husband had the new york steak, mashed potatoes and mixed veggies. Prices were reasonable. The table for two was very small and the tables on either side of us were about 12 inches away. Pretty close quarters. Aside from that, we both enjoyed our dinners and would return again.

We return here every year when in the area for a meeting. The food is always finely executed, no fancy curlicues but great food nicely presented. The service is friendly and professional.
We have started returning for breakfast the next morning, and for some of their wonderful bread and pastries to take home.

Consistently good food & service. Enough menu choices to please everyone. Desserts come from their adjacent bakery and are very good also. My wife and I have been going here for years and have never had a bad experience.

Answered for husband only re the food. We were five so that should be higher I think. Nice to have an attractive place where you can enjoy talking without shouting at each other.

Food is slightly overpriced. Chairs are hard so if you have a bad back, beware! Service was OK, but they were shorthanded. Probably won't go back.

Food was good, especially the steak! Juicy and tender - cooked just right. The wait staff were excellent. Add bonus is that the restaurant is part of the bakery & cafe, so you have a wonderful selection of tasty pastries for dessert.

The food and service was fine. I think it's acceptable for everyday dining, but there wasn't anything that was outstanding. I'll try another place first before going back.

Delicious as ever. The menu is very European and classic comfort food so if you’re looking for gastronomy, new age cuisine or extensive wine list Copenhagen is not the place. The ambiance is homey and casual but the dishes are always expertly prepared and flavorful. So happy that Copenhagen has added soup or salad back to the inclusions with entrees. And contrary to previous posters the portion sizes were never decreased and fresh flowers have always been on tables. Copenhagen is a delightful go-to for a consistently great meal and service. The in-house Danish bakery is an extra added sweet bonus!

Our favorite neighborhood place for decades. We had the special sea bass for dinner and it was perfection. So unique to have Scandinavian choices too. Save room for dessert; bread pudding and pies are favorites. Danka Copenhagen!

We had a lovely, casual dinner at Copenhagen. Our food tasted fresh and for the price was a very good value. Afterwards I wondered why we don't come here more often ... and I think we will! It was quiet, the service was very attentive and dinner was delicious!

Really excellent food. They used to include soup or salad with dinner entrees but no longer do so. Wish they would return to that, even if the price was increased a little. Restrooms need some attention

We've been dining at this neighborhood place for years. Now the portions are smaller, salad or soup has been omitted on entree, and even fresh flowers are no longer on the table Dinner for 2 - house salad and entree was $70.00 tax and tip, no drinks, no dessert. Think we'll look for another restaurant nearby!!

Having dinner with my neighbors and their two kids. We all enjoyed our meals. Had a great table by the window. Food was excellent and service was great. Everybody enjoyed their meal. My husband (now deceased) and I used to have breakfast, lunch and dinner very often as well as visits for coffee and delicious pastries. Great place.
