Had reservation but waited 30 min past reserved time while other people were seated before our party of 3. Waiter didn’ tell us about specials until asked and took forever to refresh drinks and provide napkins/plates. My steak was cold and chewy for a tenderloin. Other meals were unappetizing and wait service extremely slow throughout. We may never return.

Prime rib was perfect and not overly done. Beef ribs were just short of fall off the bone tender(as they should be) and drinks were tasty. I’ll be back soon.

Met friends for dinner and had a reservation. Arrived on time and had to wait about 7 minutes for a table , not bad. I had the burger, my husband had the french dip. Both were very good. Our friends had the ribs and the trout. Both said they enjoyed it. The beer selection was fairly good as well. The server was pleasant and reasonably attentive. This place stays busy for a reason.

Extremely disappointed with the service and care by the staff. Reservations were made for 1 pm but we were not seated till almost 1:30 pm. Host said they were simply overwhelmed. The state of being overwhelmed continued throughout the meal with long wait times to be served and even receive the check. Additionally, the server rarely checked back on us and had to be reminded several times for a high chair. However, the quality of the food was excellent and is the only reason I will consider returning to Copper Canyon.

Few healthy choices—lots of fat in everything, with huge portions. Left unhappy. Also, they put a nut in a house salad—a problematic surprise for my nut allergic friend. They did apologize profusely.

We had a large group with multiple folks with food allergies or issues and the staff accommodated everything with no problems. We had to dine outside due to seafood allergies and the staff was also very helpful with that experience. The food was also great!

My family made 2 separate reservations for the same time since open table did not allow us to book for 9 people under 1 reservation. Copper Canyon was so accommodating as they were able to put as in one table, outside by the fireplace as we requested. Our server, Brian was very good, specially with 2 people in our party with food allergies. The food were delicious and we all enjoyed our lunch.

Made last minute reservations for brunch Easter Sunday. Very enjoyable experience starting with our waiter Dan, complimentary Mimosa’s and Bloody Marys with our cornbread appetizer and eggs Benedict. Service and meals have always been excellent here. I am a frequent customer for lunch and dinner. I recommend Copper Canyon to friends when they ask for a Rio recommendation.

We have been to Copper Canyon many times, and generally like it. The issue this time was that three out of six in our party ordered the salmon, and it was a salt mine - way, way over-seasoned. When we mentioned it to the waitress, she compounded the offense by saying "oh that's just how we make it." When I said that I had been ordering salmon for decades, and had ordered it at Copper Canyon before, she reluctantly asked if I wanted something else. We didn't have time to re-order, so I ate it, and the saltiness stuck with me for hours. Otherwise the food was decent. One other person in our party had the ribs, which are very good. May go back, but not soon.

Great restaurant! Excellent food and service! Our server was great - very attentive and friendly and was able to accommodate some of our parties dietary needs. Definitely would recommend this location to others. I've been to Copper Canyon in Largo and Silver Spring - this is my favorite!

The grilled salmon was excellent as was the sautéed spinach and orzo. The veggie burger also got rave reviews from my friend. Noise level still allowed for an easy cross-table conversation. Atmosphere was nice and staff were friendly and attentive. Would recommend for most any occasions.

The chicken pot pie is nice, but too much chicken, like you put a whole chicken in it, piling up like a mountain. Please more beans and carrots.

I had eaten at Copper Canyon previously and was very satisfied with the food and service. Unfortunately, this time, I did not have a good experience. We had to wait for 25 minutes to be seated even though we had a reservation, and it seemed that most of the other people waiting were seated before us (perhaps they all had reservations too?). We also had to wait a long time for the food to be served. I saw other guests who arrived after us, served before us. In addition, I ended up with a chicken bone in my salad, and one of my party got croutons on his salad even though he had ordered his salad without croutons. It took a long time for his crouton-less salad to arrive.

Our food was brought out cold. We then had to wait about 10 minutes to see our waitress to ask for it to be reheated. When the food was brought back out, it was still lukewarm. We were too hungry to complain so we ate what we could. We will not return to this restaurant as there are too many other options in both the Rio and the Crown where our food has been served hot and promptly.

Ordered the fish of the day which was excellent. Unfortunately the delicious whipped cauliflower side that came with it wasn't even warm. Barely room temperature. When they brought me another serving it was piping hot but dried out from heating it quickly. We were all very happy with everything else including the service.

I LOVE Copper Canyon Grill. My husband and I recently spent a week at a hotel in Washingtonian Center and we went to Copper Canyon Grill 3 times during our stay. This last time before we left the area we met a friend for lunch who had the French Dip which she loves, along with a side of spinach. She was in heaven. My husband had a pulled pork sandwich which was a special that day and really enjoyed that too. I just had to have the steak salad one last time - the lucious pieces of steak along with tomatoes, cucumbers, the delicious dressing and the cornbread croutons is so delicious, and the piece of warm cornbread added on the side is delicious too! My friend and I shared a piece of Key Lime Pie for dessert - so huge we couldn't finish it but made quite a dent. Thank you so much!

We went for Valentines Day. The service was good through most of the meal, but the end it was not. The server dropped the check on the table. He did not offer the dessert menu. I wasn't given the option to take it with me. I had an earlier reservation, wasnt at my table a very long time. There was no excuse for not offering. I was annoyed and disappointed. The food the rest of the meal was great. They also need to put more effort into what they offer for dessert. I've been here before, I love the cheesecake, but the other options are limited.

Okay so let me just start with my one and only complaint then I’m ready to glorify this place. The greets from the servers are entirely too long. I am a fellow server who’s been around the block for some years now (from casual to fine dining) and my god they’ll put you to sleep with their 5 minute greet. I understand greets are typically longer for guests who’ve never dined at a particular restaurant but I felt so bombarded with information and forced to give some type of order before I could even get water in front of my face. But that’s literally my only complaint, sorry that was so long, now on to the greatness of this place.
Me and my boyfriend came here for our valentine’s date. The food and service was really great. For appetizers we got the fiesta egg rolls (hands down the best appetizer they have) along with the shrimp cargot; I’m not going to lie it was simply okay wouldn’t order it again personally. Made me regret not ordering the cornbread instead.
For drinks I got the cucumber gimlet— I had three of them so there’s my review for that.
For dinner I got the market fish (rockfish imperial) and it was literally to die for. The rice and Brussel sprouts it came with were exquisite! After demolishing our appetizers I still somehow managed to eat my entire entreé. There were almost moments of defeat but took that mf’n rockfish downnn. My boyfriend had the meatloaf and was just as impressed he couldn’t hang though, he had to get a box too but his leftovers didn’t last paat later that evening. For dessert I can’t quite remember the name of it but it was like a brownie sandwich sundae type of ordeal. Soooo amazingggg. We couldn’t make it through the sundae but we got halfway through before we claimed defeat.
Overall this an amazing restaurant with amazing food and cocktails. And excellent service. Outside of the tiresome greet hands down one of the best places to eat at.
