Copenhagen Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
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!
Tried Copenhagen for restaurant and bakery - exceeded my expectations. Loved desserts so much; bought more from bakery before left restaurant. Wonderful combinations for dinner - meatballs with red cabbage, wasabi mashed potato with fish. Highly recommend saving room for dessert
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.
This is a great place and kid friendly for breakfast and lunch. At night, white tablecloths and fresh flowers transform it into a lovely dinner venue. The food is delicious and beautifully presented. Everything is prepared perfectly, including the gorgeous fresh vegetables that accompany most entrees. Service is terrific.
Went to this restaurant several years ago (7 years ago), and wanted to come back when we were in the area again... so glad we did, it was the same as I remember... very good food! Also glad they are still in business, so many places you like in the past are gone.... what a gem!
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.
Very good food and wine , nice atmosphere, consistent service, quick and efficient . Nice white tableclothes , little flowers on table. 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.
My wife and I truly enjoyed this unique restaurant's excellent selection of menu items. From appetizers to desserts all was very delectable. The service was very attentive and accommodating. A great place to go if you don't want the typical chain restaurant dining experience!
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.
While staying in the San Francisco area we were looking for a nice restaurant based on Open table ratings for the Burlingame area and happened to notice the Copenhagen Restaurant and let me say that we were not disappointed. The restaurant has a wonderful ambience to it with a small dinner section and a wonderful menu offering. The setting would be wonderful for a little quick romantic evening out on the town. The food and service was outstanding on the evening we ate at the restaurant and the desserts afterwards at the bakery was wonderful. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting to have a wonderful dining experience. Parking can be a challendge, so come a little early to find yourself a parking spot.
Had the wonderful Chinese Chcken salad at Copnhagen for dinner with some girlfriends. We had a nice window table and watched the world go by while we enjoyed a leisurely dinner. My friends had the Beef Stroganoff which was a hige portion and the other had a Chicken Schnitzel, which she said was good. The famous, "Buns" Neil's chicken salad recipe lives on as do his delicious burgers.
The dessert selection is amazing from this well-known bakery/restaurant. You just can't go wrong for good, well-prepared fresh food, without the hype and high prices.
Because I have food allergies, including gluten, it really would make eating at Copenhagen so much easier if there were gluten free choices, incuding gluten free pasta dishes. Otherwise, I am able to eat only one dish on the menu which I don't feel like eating every time I go there ,,, But I have to as that is my only option.
Otherwise, it's a great place to go, fun staff, efficient service, etc.
I have eaten here several times and the food is always well prepared and very tasty. The waitress was particularly good last night. Everyone in our party of four enjoyed the dish they orderedwhich ran the gamut from pasta to lamb chops. We will definitely return.
Love this spot and as many have said, Copenhagen is our go-to for a casual but reliable dinner. They try really hard to make the ambiance a little more elegant at dinner time and to make the dinner entrees appealing and well prepared. Top scores all around!
Copenhagen is a reliable neighborhood retaurant and our "go to" restaurant always. We dine there twice a week and love it. The menu is perfect because it includes just about anything you are in the mood for. We also find it to be very comfortable. The staff is always friendly and fun, and they feel like family. It would be helpful if there were gluten free options on the menu.
i had the fish petrale it was 4large pieces came with rice, vegetables and i had choice of salad or soup so i had salad it was for 21.95 . couldnt it eat all so too the rest home
it was very good my favorite fish when they have it is their scallops
the lamb chops are very good too.
Especially great for a casual weeknight meal. The staff do their best to spruce up the place so it has more of a dinnertime ambiance than a lunchtime one. everything is always prepared very nicely, hot dishes are always hot, salads always nice and cold. Ample portions and basic but decent wines. The breads are always made on the premises.
