    We eat at the CT fairly often and the food offered is generally very good, yesterday was no exception. Our only issue Sunday was our waiter forgetting things or not asking if we needed anything. I had to ask 3 times for ice for my water glass. He also didn’t think to bring the free ounce of bourbon for Father’s Day until I asked about it. Finally, the ice cream flight was pretty much soup by the time he remembered to bring it from the kitchen. Otherwise we enjoyed our meal and the waiter was very pleasant. You might want to begin offering Waygu on the menu as it is very good.

    Everyone’s drinks, appetizers, entrees and deserts were good with one exception. One person in our party ordered a dessert coffee drink (campfire coffee) which was not particularly good and thus not recommended.

    We went here just as a last minute decision and will not do it again. We ordered two streaks both medium rare and both came out over done. Medium at best the ribeye was medium well done. Also the sides we room temp, they had been sitting somewhere and not brought out when hot. No one in the restaurant cares about service. I saw two other tables trying to get any amount of service until they had to finally stand up and go to the hostess station to ask for bills or any sort of service. We ended up having to do this as well. Just don't bother.

    We were visiting from Boston in preparation for a move to the area and decided to stop at the Copperwood Tavern for dinner. It was an amazing experience. The staff here are friendly and attentive but not overbearing. They were accommodating and polite. The food was excellent. The appetizers (the meatballs and the fried goat cheese) were to die for. For dinner we got the rabbit with Brussel sprouts and Mac and cheese and let me tell you, so worth it! The portion sizes were just enough to enjoy but not too heavy and the flavors were delicious. I’d recommend this place to anyone in the area.

    I have an extreme allergy to spicy & bell peppers. I specifically indicated that on my Open Table reservation, as well as relaying it to my server. I ordered the tuna lettuce wraps, and there were minced jalapeños in both. Due to the kitchen’s negligence, my throat & tongue swelled up, I had to abruptly leave before I could enjoy the remainder of my entrées and injected an epipen when I returned to my vehicle. My server Tiffany was attentive and pleasant throughout my brisk dinner and genuinely apologetic though.

    My firs time there. Went on the recommendation of a friend. We had brunch. Menu selection for brunch is extensive -- multiple egg dishes and multiple other choices. We both had the blueberry pancakes with ricotta with a side of Canadian bacon, and shared a yogurt, fruit and granola parfait. The food was all very good, and Marco provided excellent service. He is a real professional waiter. We will be back. We outside so our noise rating reflects the low level of street noise in that location.

    The mussels were SO good - it was an impulse order and so glad we ordered them. Highlight of the meal. Cocktails were also good. Entrees were tasty although mine was not especially hot when I received it (scallops). My husband enjoyed his ribeye. Brussels sprouts were enough to share and tasted good. I would definitely go back again.

    The food was okay and the waiter seemed attentive but it took nearly an hour after we ordered to get our food. Our waiter assured us twice that it would be out shortly but to no avail. Finally we inquired to another waiter about the delay and was told it would another 12 minutes wait but it was served about 5 minutes later. Clearly something was amiss between our table and the kitchen. Also the restrooms were not well maintained. We will not return.
