Copper Fox Gastropub
That’s because the fox has a more tasteful form of curiosity- one that is smart and selective. It is a sentiment that inspired everything on our menu, from our craveable food to our signature copper-mug cocktails.
So, go ahead. Be curious. Try something new. There’s a bit of refined curiosityin everything we serve; a pinch in every dish, a dash in every drink, from creative dishes to crafted cocktails.
That’s the curious formula for a unique gastropub experience.

The avocado salad was very good.
Thank you for the feedback, we hope you can join us for a five star dining experience on your next visit. -Yesenia Castaneda Restaurant GM
We have been there a few times and the ambience is very nice. There are many dishes that we like but this time the food was ok but not as good as I remembered and the service was just fine..I guess the waiter just didn’t have a good day..not a bit of happiness or a smile..oh well, i will probably go back but maybe not with the same enthusiasm.
Hello, I appreciate the feedback on your experience. I apologize we did not exceed your expectations during your visit, but hope you join us with the same enthusiasm on your next visit. -Yesenia Castaneda Restaurant GM
Tried this place while on vacation. Had one of the worst Cosmos, never had one before which tasted so strongly of Rose’s lime juice. A Gastropub should be using fresh lime juice. Not sure why this 4 ingredient drink is so difficult to make. The wait staff gave the feel of being extremely busy but the restaurant was not full. I had to send back the salmon which I added to my Brussels sprouts and kale salad as it was completely raw in the middle. I finished my salad and told the waitress to skip bringing it back. Only to learn it had been left in the oven and couldn’t be served to anyone! Thankfully they removed it from the bill. Our daughter had the 7 layer chicken salad. She was very disappointed. Corn and black beans tasted like they came straight from a can. Dressing didn’t have much flavor. The two remaining people in our party were happy with their choices - French dip and chicken Caesar salad. With so many great dining options in Chicago, skip this one.
Thank you for dining with us and for bringing your concerns to our attention. We are so sorry you did not enjoy your Cosmo, we certainly do use fresh juices with all our cocktails and will certainly review the recipe with our team. It does seem that we missed the mark with your food, we are a scratch kitchen and are so sorry that you perceived the beans and corn to be canned products. We were so surprised to see your review as we are consistently rated one of the top Gastropubs in the city.
I ordered fried chicken sandwich w/ fries. Chicken sandwich was just ok. Fries were terrible. My husband ordered risotto. It tasted ok but rice was not a good consistency, in part was too done & other parts were not done enough.
Thank you for dining with us and for sending in your concerns. We are so sorry you did not enjoy your meal. Copper Fox Gastropub is typically a top rated experience and we are so sorry that was not your experience. We do hope you will consider dining with us again, this is certainly a one-off situation.
The slowest service ever! Each time waited for over 45 minutes to get a breakfast
Thank you for dining with us and for sending in your concern. We have had overwhelming response to our popular Brunch menu and $3 mimosas. We have reviewed staffing levels to ensure we can provide faster service for all who dine with us. We do hope you will consider dining with us again and please consider using Allset app. You can order your food ahead of your arrival and it will be ready at your table within 5 minutes of your arrival!
This a nice somewhat casual restaurant in downtown Chicago. I had a delicious crispy chicken sandwich. The food was good and our party of 6 was probably in and out of there in 90 minutes on a busy Friday evening in summer. With some meals as unusual as it's name, the Copper Fox Gastropub surely has something for everyone to enjoy. In terms of apps, the #16 biscuits were very good.
Thank you for dining with us and for the high marks. We appreciate the kind words about Chef Cortney Pierce's menu, we do hope you will consider dining with us again.
We had reservations for noon, we were seated at 11:50, and no one came to our table until 12:15. They were very understaffed and our server could not keep up. The food was good.
Also- if you order a latte, they walk to Starbucks in the hotel lobby to get it and it comes in a disposable cup. Very odd.
Thank you for dining with us and we are so sorry that the restaurant was so busy. We have reviewed staffing levels to ensure our team and service our very large crowds at times. We do hope you will consider dining with us again.
I had high hopes but it wasn't meant to be. I did like their biscuits, they were yummy. But, overall, the experience was average at best. My server was excellent.
Thank you for the feedback and I apologize we did not exceed your expectations during your visit. We hope that you give us another opportunity to provide a great experience. -Yesenia Castaneda Restaurant GM
Server was fantastic! We had just gotten some bad news from doctor and she was very good even when I was crying. Food was to die for! Would dine again and highly recommend!
Thank you for stopping in and for your kind words about our great team! We are so sorry to hear of your bad news but glad our food and staff were able to comfort you some. We appreciate your recommendation and hope to see you again soon.
Had a great breakfast tacos , will be back
Thank you for the five paws up! We hope to see you again soon! -Yesenia Castaneda Restaurant GM
Great waiter food was fresh and very good!
Thank you for the awesome feedback! We hope we see you again soon ! -Yesenia Castaneda Restaurant GM
I had a great experience here. 3 staff members came to check that we were taken care of during our dinner besides our server. Food and cocktails were delicious. I recommend the pork belly and grits as well as the hush puppies.
Awesome feedback! I am thrilled you enjoyed your time with us, we hope to see you again soon! -Yesenia Castaneda Restaurant GM
Visiting Chicago with my girlfriend
Wow! Thank you for the five paws up! We hope you can join us again soon! -Yesenia Castaneda Restaurant GM
Restaurant was fairly empty but we waited FOREVER to receive our order. THen the food was just meh. Nothing inspired and fairly bland. Dinner the night at Doc B's was far superior.
Hello, I apologize we did not exceed your expectations during your visit, I can assure you that this is not the norm we live by. We invite you to join us again so that we may provide a better experience on your next visit. -Yesenia Castaneda Restaurant GM
This used to be Viand, one of my favorites! The menu is great , good variety and creative.
Will be back again & again.
I am so happy you came in to join us now as Copper Fox and I am glad you liked it. We look forward to seeing you again soon! -Yesenia Castaneda Restaurant GM
A bit disappointed that it was in the lobby of the Courtyard Hotel. The shared plates were great. Wine was good. Main dishes just okay, nothing note worthy. The wait staff was kind and helpful. The atmosphere felt like well...the breakfast room of a hotel.
Thank you for dining with us and for your kind words about our fantastic staff. We certainly understand your opinion about being adjacent to a hotel but in destination downtown areas it is very normal as most restaurants are in office buildings or hotels, etc. We do hope you will consider dining with us again.
Service was so slow. Cutlery was dirty. Bathrooms didn't have any tissue in any of the stalls. Food was boring. 4 different entrees at the table...no one liked their food. It was not bad just not good at all. No flavor.
Thank you for the feedback, but I apologize we did not meet your expectations during your visit. We hope this does not deter you from joining us again in the near future. We look forward to having you in for a better dining experience. -Yesenia Castaneda Restaurant GM
Very prompt service, excellent variety on menu, server allowed us time to have a conversation with friends without feeling rushed and very fairly priced. A real winner.
Wow! We greatly appreciate your feedback and awesome review! We hope you can join us again soon! -Yesenia Castaneda Restaurant GM
We booked this restaurant looking for a great gastro pub. When we arrived, we found this is really a hotel restaurant in their lobby. Not a pub at all, or even the same type of menu or ambiance as a gastro pub...I’m literally confused why that is even part of their title? The service was very slow. The server was trying to keep up but after waiting over an hour for our simple breakfast for 4 ppl, he explained “the kitchen was having some issues”. Our breakfast was good and everything was cooked appropriately, but the meal was not really anything out of the ordinary for a breakfast. We wanted to order Bloody Mary drinks with our breakfast and were told the bar uses mix from a bottle. When I questioned why a gastro pub uses bottled mix (something I have never encountered) the server became defensive and began letting us know that some bottled mixes taste better than fresh mix. We got one and it tasted like mix from a bottle so that was disappointing. It should not be for the server to feel defensive either, a gastro pub using bottled mix is pretty questionable and that is management’s decision. All in all, even for a hotel lobby restaurant, food was average, service was slow and there was no real gastro pub menu or ambiance. We were pretty disappointed with our choice.
I apologize we did not provide the dining experience you hoped for. We are a stand alone restaurant conveniently located in the same building as the hotel. I am glad you enjoyed your meal and hope that you give us another opportunity to exceed your expectations. -Yesenia Castaneda Restaurant GM
Had to leave the service was so bad
Do not sit outside
Worst service in Chicago
I sincerely apologize for you experience with us during your visit. I can assure you that we do not operate to those standards and would love for you to give us the opportunity to exceed your expectations on your next visit. We hope you choose to dine with us again. -Yesenia Castaneda Restaurant GM
We got what we ordered, albeit quite slowly. One of our party said it was the best meal he’d had in Chicago, one said the food was disappointing, and the rest of us were satisfied but not impressed. I would eat here again in a pinch but wouldn’t go out of my way to recommend it.
Thank you for your feedback and I apologize we did not exceed your expectations during your visit. We hope you choose to dine with us again so that we may provide a great dining experience. -Yesenia Castaneda Restaurant GM
The brunch was average. Not much taste. The happy hour and dinner menu is much better. The service was terrible. We sat for 20 minute before someone came to take our order then told us 3 main items were out and never put in our app order so we waited another 20 minutes for nothing. Very disappointed.
I apologize we did not exceed your expectations for brunch. We hope that you can give us another opportunity to make your next experience better than the last. -Yesenia Castaneda Restaurant GM
Good spot overall, but was not unique
Thank you so much for the feedback, we hope that you can join us again for a five star dining experience soon! -Yesenia Castaneda Restaurant GM
Service was top notched. Wait staff was right there and always near when needed. Food was well proportioned and savory. What a find in a city of thousands of restaurants.
Wow! Thank you for the amazing feedback! I am thrilled you enjoyed your whole dining experience. Next time you are in, ask to speak to one of the manager, we love to meet our new favorites! -Yesenia Castaneda Restaurant GM
Went for Mother's Day brunch/lunch. We were able to sit in the side area as a private party of 11. Ordered breakfast and lunch items, all solid. The service was terrific- always a "sure, no problem" and with a smile. Loved the location right of MI Ave. Was a pleasant find.
It was a pleasure having you in on such a special occasion. Thank you for celebrating Mother's Day with us! We hope we become your restaurant of choice in the area. We look forward to having you in again soon! -Yesenia Castaneda Restaurant AGM
Best food ever omg

Yay! This is awesome! We will definitely be your home away from home! Next time you are in, ask to speak to one of the managers, Yesenia, Lindsay or Elaine; we love to meet our new favorites! -Yesenia Castaneda Restaurant AGM
We were there for brunch and had the BEST biscuits I’ve ever tasted!

The burger is delicious. Great old fashioneds. Service is regular, thorough, friendly. Flexible with our group coming in parts and ordering sporadically.
Thank you for the great feedback and rating, we look forward to having you in again soon! -Yesenia Castaneda Restaurant AGM
Copper Fox had great food, just a bummer that it is in a hotel lobby. Other than that it was a great experience.
Thank you for the feedback, we look forward to seeing you back again soon! -Yesenia Castaneda Restaurant AGM
It is part of a hotel lobby and does feel like a hotel hobby restaurant on the basic side. The food is good, and the manager checked in with us twice during our time to make sure we are happy. The appetizers are good, and the main dishes are decent. Overall, a decent place for causal happy hour.
Thank you so much for your feedback, we hope you choose to dine with us again for a five star experience. -Yesenia Castaneda Restaurant AGM
The Yelp page of this restaurant is rather misleading as this place has 4 stars on there. This is literally just a hotel lobby restaurant; very no-frills and corporate feeling. Their brunch menu looks good when you read it, but upon receiving our food we were shocked by the small portions, burnt bacon, and cold food. Not to mention, two of us ordered their Eggs Benedict which says it comes with grilled asparagus but there was no asparagus in either of our orders. Don't let the nice photos of their food on their website and yelp fool you, this is a very plain lobby restaurant who can't even stay true to their menu descriptions.
The only saving grace was that since I made a reservation for a party of 5, we were seated at our own meeting-style round table that was in its own room. This was nice and convenient and allowed for us to talk without being surrounded by lobby noise.
Honestly, if you're not staying at this hotel, don't even bother dining here.
Hello, thank you for the feedback, we always strive to provide exceptional food and service. We hope that this experience does not discourage you from joining us again. -Yesenia Castaneda Restaurant AGM
Food was decent. The restaurant was very loud
Hello, I apologize the restaurant was loud during your visit. Next time you are in, ask about our private dining space. We hope to see you soon! -Yesenia Castaneda Restaurant AGM
The food was amazing and we had multiple staff check in with us to make sure everything was good. I would highly recommend.
Wow! Thank you so much for the five star rating! I am thrilled you enjoyed your time with us, we hope you join us again soon! -Yesenia Castaneda Restaurant AGM
Great food, cocktails, and service!
Wow! Thank you for the five star rating! We look forward to having you back in soon! -Yesenia Castaneda Restaurant AGM
I had never been to Copper Fox before but it was close to the Hospital. I was worried that I wouldn't be dressed for the restaurant but to my surprise it was a beautiful restaurant with a casual dress code. The food was good and filling. More importantly, the service was so polite and I would definitely go back.
We truly appreciate the feedback, we are conveniently located near the hospital and look forward to having you back soon! -Yesenia Castaneda Restaurant AGM
Food and service was great! But, I should of done more research as I thought the it would be more like a gastropub/bar but it was instead an extension of the hotel.
Hello, Thank you for the feedback, we are attached to the hotel, but run as an independent restaurant. We hope this does not deter you from joining us again in the near future, we would love to see you back! -Yesenia Castaneda Restaurant AGM
We arrived here during St Patty’s day celebrations
Such a fun place to enjoy city celebrations, even though it was crowded from city celebrations, service was truly awesome, they apologized for food being late (I didn’t notice it was late) but they still gave us more treats. Not necessary but very much appreciated
Wow! Thank you for the amazing review! St Paddy's was a lot of fun! I am happy you enjoyed your experience and look forward to having you in again soon! -Yesenia Castaneda Restaurant AGM
