Meal was wonderful. Service was great and weather was beautiful.
Great food and service. Easy parking in Shirlington
The food was not good. I was served the worst ribeye I have ever tasted/chewed. Sides were cold. Ceaser had no flavor. Service was fine. I am never going back. The Fog Theory Pinot Noir was trash... Don't waste your hard earned money there.
Didn’t eat here. Sat down and left. The place was extremely dirty. Sticky table, dirty glasses, dirty tables around and dirty floor.
Brunch entrees were delicious and good sized. Cheddar jalapeño donut appetizer is really cornbread in a donut shape. Service started out ok but we had to wait awhile to get a second drink.
Friends get together, some of us were out of town. We had a very nice server; food came out great and actually pretty fast, too. We had a good time!
Everything we ordered was outstanding from drinks( Porch punch, Tequila Sour) appetizer (baked Brie) side dishes (mashed potatoes, Brussel sprouts, and asparagus) and main courses (venison and filet). We haven’t had a good meal like that in a awhile! We will definitely be back
Delicious food in a hipster setting. Great cocktails
Excellent food and service. We had a fine dinner with friends and plan to return soon.
Amazing food and service!!
Great food and great service. We love copper wood tavern. Thanks
My 3rd time here. The mussels and braised short ribs are among my favorites.
We wanted so much to enjoy our time at Copperwood, however that was not the case. It was a humid day so we sat inside; it wasn’t busy yet took 15 minutes for anyone to take a drink order. We ordered at the same time, with a clear explanation of unique considerations for cooking of beef. Based on server recommendation my husband ordered what he thought was a “medium-well” burger. The food came out quickly, and while tasty, 2 biggies:
1. Burger was RARE by an any definition, but our server disappeared!
2. The ask for extra ketchup took 20 minutes, and was only granted by my approaching the hostess.
The only time we ever saw our server was when we glanced her chatting with fellow staff by the rear of the bar. An attentive busboy (man) ultimately took care of us.
Great food and great service. Some of the best protein and meats I've had in the northern VA area!
Great experience - Matt, the manager is a gem. Awesome variety of local beers and spirits. Loved the oysters!
Everything was good but waited too long for the food. It seems the restaurant is understaffed.
Food was terrific as always but this is the second time in three weeks that I experienced extremely slow service. Lunch took two and half hours, and no one checked on us once our meals were delivered.
My fiancé and I️ had an amazing time. We would definitely return.
I ordered the duck breast - medium rare. It came chewy and well done - awful but my dog liked it. The potatoes were served completely dry. the whole meal was just awful. My friend ordered the short ribs (they came out cold- inedible) and the only thing that was good is that she ordered the brusell sprouts. They came out hot and really good. Everything else was over-priced and dog food.
Our server was very nice. We had some apps and drinks - casual night out for us.
We always enjoy coming to the Tavern. This was a brunch occasion - great shrimp and grits, cauliflower hash! The elderberry mimosa was quite tasty! And our server was very gracious in dealing with a table full of older guests with hearing and mobility challenges. Just wish the noise level had been a tad lower.
Friendly, quick and attentive service. The breakfast we had was wonderful, will do this again soon.
Everything was amazing. The food was delicious, the service was fantastic, and everything arrived to the table quickly.
Fast service. We requested to change seats and they were very accommodating but only after the 2nd request. Menu is very limited. Presentation of food was good and taste great. My boyfriend said the rabbit was excellent. My lobster mac n cheese was good.
Poached eggs on Benedicts we hard cooked. Very disappointing.
Fantastic service food and drinks. Absolutely our go to date night spot. Truffle Mac is to die for!
The startups were the best part of the meal - had the goat cheese and the short ribs with parsnip puree. The filet mignon was just okay; jmy friends seemed to enjoy what they were eating. Tuesday is free chocolate cake night, which is always a nice way to top off a meal, and was just that little something extra that all restaurants should try to give to customers to leave them feeling a little better!
Great weather and nice outdoor seating by the street.
Delicious food, great service. Can’t wait to go back!
Great place for an early morning bfast! We will be back again! Great staff as well!
The food was great but the service was very slow.
Welcoming space to gather with friends (including dogs) and enjoy delicious meals.
Nice setting, great service, appetizers and sides great; main courses and specialty drinks not as much.
The wait staff was fantastic, very timely with checking in on us and making sure we were doing well. The food was quite excellent, and the drink selection was vast.
I sincerely regret forgetting our waitress's name because she was fantastic--appropriately attentive, fair and considered (and wonderful) recommendations. My food was okay. My steak was a little overcooked and the mushrooms and fries were lukewarm/cold. But my friend has not stopped raving about the fried goat cheese. She also loves the fried green tomatoes. And I can give two thumbs up to the cauliflower mash.
The seating was not level (we were in a booth/chair sitch). The music was fantastic (but I love the 90s). Well ventilated and comfortable.
Came for Fathers Day, oysters were small and our steaks were overdone. Service was extremely slow, which is understandable with lack of employees but can be planned against.
Food was great. Ambience wonderful. Only downside was that our waiter disappeared towards the end of the evening and forgot to bring our check. We had to flag down another waiter twice to get the check.
Great Father's Day brunch with family. We will be back soon.
Love the food, serviced, atmosphere. Music occasionally too loud for easy conversation. Still a favorite venue.
Great brunch location. Good food, drinks, and service.
