The restaurant was beautiful. We felt very safe, and the staff and restaurant itself felt very clean and comfortable. It was the first time we have eaten inside a restaurant since March.
Unfortunately we didn't bring our cell phones as we were celebrating a special occasion and wanted to be present, this meant we were not able to look at a cocktail list. I would have loved to be alerted and we would have brought at least one phone.
The apps were amazing. Fresh and delicious.
The venison was definitely over cooked, and my burger was charred. I do like it well done, but for that kind of class and price I really expected them to be able to pull off a well done burger without burning it.
In the end our very nice waitress had a problem with my card. We used another and checked when we got back to the room. My card had been charged twice, along with my partner's card. Totally hundreds of dollars now pending and on hold in my account, while there had been plenty to begin with. I am sure it was some kind of tech error but it certainly complicated things and 2 days later the money is still not yet back in my account.

My husband and I are staying at the Taconic Hotel for New Years and dined at the Copper Grouse. The food was great - we loved the Brussels sprouts and butternut squash soup appetizers and the salmon and wagyu burger for our dinners. Everything was cooked perfectly and service was great too!
Thank you for sharing your dining experience with us at The Copper Grouse. Happy New Year, and we look forward to hosting you in the near future.
The bathroom inside the hotel room was freezing there was no heat in it we were told to leave the door open so the heat could go in. the restaurant was filthy! we saw food on the floor and fingerprints all over the counter where we were sitting at our table eating breakfast. The male host who seemed to be the manager at the restaurant desk seemed to be very stressed, and not friendly or welcoming. This is a dog friendly hotel if you are not aware (we were not!)
Thank you for addressing your concerns with us as we will provide additional training to our staff. We spend a significant amount of time cleaning the restaurant, however it seems we need to take a little more notice. Bummer about the heating issues, please direct those concerns to the hotel staff as restaurant staff does not have the training to fix mechanical issues in the rooms! We hope that it was resolved! Happy New Year!
Was prefix which we understand, however the choices were very poor, not a single chicken dish, we have a guest with severe sea food allergies and not a single concession was made. ,,,they just said you can order the steak and lobster dish and we will just serve you the small piece of steak. Just a terrible main course menu. We are very frequent guests 1-2 twice per week and it will be some time when we do if ever come back
We had such an amazing meal. Every single item was perfectly done. We were pleasantly surprised considering we hadn't had much of a positive experience with our trip thus far. Next time we visit we will be staying at the Taconic and eating at Copper Grouse. Kudos to the servers, host and manager for being friendly, attentive and interested in our experience.
It was our utmost pleasure to provide a quality experience for you at The Copper Grouse! We look forward to hosting you in the near future!
Deserves five stars in all respects based on Food, Ambiance, Staff. Menu is creative and has something for everyone. Great selection of beer to pair with dinner-Heady Topper, Lunch etc. Decor is warm but elegant. Always enjoy the Cooper Grouse, on the top of my list.

Our waiter who was doing double duty waiting on tables and taking orders did a great job. Very friendly and accommodating. The place was very festive for the holidays. The prices are a little high (resort hotel) but the quality was excellent! Our second time dining there and is next door to the Inn at Manchester where we like to stay. We’ll definitely be back.
We appreciate the feedback regarding your dining experience at The Copper Grouse. We love the Inn at Manchester and their team as well. Enjoy your holidays!
I never expected that I could have such delicious food in a small village Vermont. The food is very special, specially the appetizers.
It was our utmost pleasure! We look for to hosting you at The Copper Grouse again.
Underwhelming for such a pretty hotel. The food was nothing special. My husband had a $17 rueben that was skimpy on everything. I had the BLT and it was dry. I hate to say it but a diner would do them better :(
Thank you for sharing you dining experience with us, we apologize for our underwhelming performance that day. Reviews such as yours provides us the opportunity to share feedback with our staff to improve the overall quality of service.
Super great service and friendly staff ! Quick service and amazing food . Would go over and over again .
Thank you for sharing your dining experience with us. We look forward to hosting you again in the near future at The Copper Grouse.
Service was exceptional. Cocktails were perfectly balanced and well presented. Great twists on classic cocktails. Food was good, seasoned well ans HOT! Service was real winner!
Thank you for sharing you dining experience with us! We look forward to seeing you in the near future.
Lovely place, nice people. A smidge overpriced. Wish our burgers had been cooked mid rare as requested. But they were still juicy at near well done, so we didn't send them back. The two tables within earshot had already complained about overcooked expensive beef, so it felt like it would be piling on. We'll try it out again someday after covid.
We appreciate your feedback regarding your dining experience. Reviews such as yours allows us to provide additional training to our staff, and we will bring this to the attention of our culinary team. Thank you!
The only minor minor issue was...that we ordered sourdough bread and it came out only after reminding our server...it would have been nice to get the bread before our meals came out.
We apologize for the hiccup that night. Thank you for sharing you review with us, as we will us your experience for additional training. We look forward to hosting you again at The Copper Grouse.
The server was respectful, helpful, and assured. The restaurant was nice, the food excellent. When visiting Manchester we will absolutely return for a visit!
We look forward to your return visit at The Copper Grouse. Thank you for sharing you dining experience with us.
Great food, nice ambiance, wonderful service. Will be back!
It was our utmost pleasure! We look forward to hosting you at The Copper Grouse in the future.
The seasonal selections were fresh and very well prepared. A food allergy was handled simply without any fanfare or consternation, a very welcome change. Recommendations from staff were spot on and cocktails were on par with other top-shelf provisions from all over the world (San Diego, Austin, Dallas, Boston, Washington, Seattle, Charlotte, Miami, Los Angles, Tulum, Bern, Istanbul, Braç, Venice). The bread pudding was rich and velvety and thankfully not too sweet.
We appreciate the kind words regarding your dining experience at The Copper Grouse. Our bar team takes great pride in creating well crafted cocktails, we hope to see you shortly for our winter cocktail list is coming soon!
Had a wonderful time at the Copper Grouse. Our waiter was very attentive and the food was fabulous.
Thank you for sharing your dining experience with us! We look forward to hosting you at The Copper Grouse in the near future.
Honestly super dissatisfied and disappointed. Looked and sounded great online. Beautiful clean restaurant, just did not deliver. Our server/bartender wasn't overly friendly or informative at all. The food for the price was completely underwhelming and not worth the value. A $29 frozen burger? A limp flavorless Caesar salad that had a hair in it. Just not great quality, nothing seemed cooked from scratch or farm to table like they advertise. I would not come back here- on-top of it I made a note on my reservation that it was my fiancés bday and it never even got brought up or acknowledged. Such a shame because its located in a beautiful high end lodge and they could really benefit if they weren't so mediocre.
DO NOT eat at the copper grouse. The food had NO taste and was overly expensive. We will not be back. There are only of other better restaurants in Manchester Vermont.
We head over to the copper grouse every time we visit VT
This time it was a birthday and it was great
Love that there’s options for my kids as well
Great food and cocktails and had our favorite waiter John !
Thank you for sharing your birthday experience with us! John is a fantastic addition to our team, and we look forward to hosting you again at The Copper Grouse.
Something has definitely changed. Not the same Caesar salad, fries, bun for burger. We had the Wagyu burger. Burger itself was good but bun was soggy. Baked brie was good. Not sure about coming back for a while. Was disappointed.
On behalf of the management team we apologize for our poor showing that evening, reviews such as yours provides us an opportunity to reevaluate our shortcomings and we appreciate the valuable feedback. We look forward to hosting you in the near future to show that we are better.
Ate inside with good distancing, great service, good wine and food.
We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your evening with us at the Copper Grouse.
The wagu burger was easily the most amazing burger my wife and I have ever had!
The Wagyu Burger is our personal favorite at The Copper Grouse.
Atmosphere was great, food was incredible and the company was amazing!!!!
We appreciate your patronage!
We had read the reviews during Covid 19 and anticipated the wait. It was well worth it.
Regina our server was the Best considering the environment. and the Mac and Cheese was the Best ad a starter!
We cannot stress enough how much we appreciate reviews such as yours, Covid19 mandates have put our industry under immense stress and have tested our capabilities, so thank you for your understanding and patience. It was our utmost pleasure to provide a quality dining experience for you, and we look forward to hosting you again in the near future.
The clam chowder and butternut squash bisque were out of this world!
We just adore this restaurant (and the Inn)! One of the best burgers I’ve ever had. Great cocktails. The pumpkin bread pudding is to die for.
Our bar team creates fantastic cocktails, we admire their creativity and passion for their craft.
Our waitress was phenomenally friendly and the service was fast and professional.
So happy to hear about your great dining experience.
We had an exceptional Waiter named John!! Food was spectacular.. a bit pricey, but overall an amazing dining experience! We’ll return
John is a fantastic addition to our team! We appreciate your honest feedback, and hope to see you in the near future.
We were a group of 5 and came for a nice birthday dinner but we’re surprised by the excellent food. Everyone enjoyed what we had and we all had a great time!
We were thrilled to accommodate you and your party on that special day, we look forward to hosting you at The Copper Grouse once again.
Loved it! Meat and Cheese Board, Hot and Honey Chicken, Wagyu Burger Specail
Thank you! We are obsessed with our Wagyu Burger as well!
Food, service and ambience were all great!!!
Thank you for sharing your experience!
We had a meal that my husband and I will never forget at the Copper Grouse. The food (particularly the fall harvest and beef tenderloin) was outstanding; Amber and Aiden’s warm and genuine service was even more memorable. What a talented and sincerely nice group of people - we will definitely the back!
Thank you for glowing review. It pleases us to hear that our team provided a memorable experience for you and your husband. We look forward to hosting you in the near future.
