Curiosity may have killed the cat, but it had no ill effects on the fox.
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 curiosity
in 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.

We came in for a light dinner and couldn’t have had a better experience. We each wanted salad with some fish and a craft beer and our waitress steered us towards splitting the salad and each getting salmon which was cooked perfectly and paired with a fantastic salad and an IPA brewed just for the pub. Everything was perfect and inexpensive. Would come again in a heartbeat.

The starters were good but the main entree was very disappointing. I sent it back because it was under cooked. They supposedly remade it but it was once again very under cooked (like crunchy rice under cooked...). The server was very kind and took the meal off of the bill.

The location is perfect for tourists in the city. The wait staff were very helpful, friendly and energetic. We went for Thanksgiving dinner, everything met our expectations and my son who is typically pretty picky about food choices, found a nice variety that met his expectations.

Went for brunch and they were out of the menu item I selected. Took 30 minutes to get our food even though the place was mostly empty. Quality of food was ok at best. This place is part of the hotel next door which may explain the whole substandard experience

We stumbled across this place last year & it was amazingly good. You just don't expect a hotel restaurant to be outstanding. We liked the charcuterie appetizer so much that we did it again thus year & I had the best burger ever!

Food was ok. I recommend the mac the chicken was great. The rest of the sandwich was odd. Fries were bad and cold. My fiancee had the burger. It was of poor quality. The most ridiculous thing was that they tout their "homemade pickles" but they literally only give 1 pickle slice. I think that we could have had a better meal at a fast-casual restaurant (mBurger, Nandos, Vapiano). Service was not exceptional and food took a long time--even though the restaurant was less than 1/2 full & we ordered appetizers. I will not go back.

Not impressed. Long wait times and food was just ok. Our waitress was very kind and bought us our drinks because it took almost an hour for our food to arrive. I had ordered at shrimp/crab roll with fries. The sandwich was meh and the fries tasted as though they had been sitting out for a while. Except for our waitress, this was disappointing overall. Would not return.

The service was good and the restaurant was nice. However, the food was disappointing: the steak sandwich was tasteless and dry, and the bread it came on seemed stale. Also, we were not asked how we would like our steak cooked and it came out very well done. The kale Caesar salad had very little kale which was again disappointing. I felt for the money I paid, the food was substandard.

Had a fabulous time at Copper Fox. Took my mom when she came into visit. Our server Sylvie and manager Lindsay were fabulous; they were quite personable and attentive! The drinks were incredible; the Honey To-Do List was one of the best cocktails I’ve ever had. Food was good especially the #16 Biscuits. I never write reviews but the staff made this a great experience.

This is a great place. Worth a visit. Local Chicagoans need to make this a regular stop. The bartender, Nick, is a great guy and makes fantastic drinks. Can't say enough nice things about him or his skills behind the bar. The variations on a Moscow Mule were delicious. And I had the best Vodka Gimlet ever!!! The appetizers were excellent, especially the roasted brussel sprouts with candied jalapeños. Even if you think you don't like brussel sprouts, you'll like these! This place is a gem!

I reserved saying it was a birthday. No one acknowledged or asked anything. I did not want or expect something free..But I did want to celebrate my granddaughter's birthday. We had a three-year-old child with us, it took 20 minutes to get water at our table etc. etc.. I was very unhappy since I had received very good reviews about your restaurant.
The food was okay, nothing extraordinary. The only thing available immediately and constantly was coffee if you wanted it!!! Getting tea was almost impossible.
In a city that has good food and good service on every block, especially in your area, this was more than disappointing.

Delicious food (skirt steak, scallops, cocktails/wine) with great service. Do know, however, that the restaurant is part of/attached to the hotel. While some may look down upon this, it was decently separated by interior design concepts and was still delicious/had good service. Just an FYI.

Absolutely horrible. Our food was sent to the wrong table. We couldn’t flag down a waiter for over ten minutes. When someone did finally come over they didn’t apologize. They said they would put the order in again. It took another 20 minutes to get food. Nothing offered while we waited, nothing taken off bill, but most upsetting was no apology. Absolutely deplorable service. Oh, and the food- maybe one star. Definitely not worth the money.

Decent food, but a small menu of options to pick from. From the reviews online, I expected much more from this restaurant. Good location and close to the shops on Michigan Avenue. However, I would suggest taking time to explore other options and passing on this one. There are better values in the area for the money spent to dine here.
