Service was slow, omelette s were dry, coffee was terrible.Banana French toast was tasty but drowning in syrup. Salmon eggs Benedict was delicious… that’s the only reason it got any stars

First time at Copperwood - the atmosphere is right up our alley. Wound up being disappointed in the food. Seems like it sat for a long time before being brought out. Everything was lukewarm at best. I had the filet with potatoes. The herb butter on top never even melted because the steak wasn’t warm enough - same for the sides. There are much better places for this type of food at this price point. Will still give it one more shot in case this was an anomaly.

Nothing is more disappointing to me than to ask a sever(multiple times) to clear dirty dishes from the table with the last course of food. This is restaurant service 101.

We celebrated a lovely New Years Eve at Copperwood Tavern. The selection of food on the NYE menu was great and all dishes delicious. Our servers, Stephanie and Tiffany were welcoming and attentive. The restaurant at 9:45 was not overcrowded, yet lively, festive and fun, exactly what we were looking for during COVID. We had a great time!

We dined there New Year’s Eve and enjoyed the Prix Fix menu and everyone in our party enjoyed each course. Elias was a great waiter; he was very pleasant and professional with us. He might have passed by the table a little more frequently but all in all, it was acceptable.

Great New Year Celebration 🍾 🎉 with my husband. Was very nice busy a lot of people so was a bit of a delay in getting our food. But that’s expected on a busy night and also since it was New Year’s Evening dinner for two.

This all must be viewed based on the fact that it was New Year's Eve. We went there because we were going to a show at the Signature Theater. Big mistake. It was a prix fixe dinner for $70 each. It was a nice menu and the first 2 courses came out really quickly. The waitress wanted to take away my bisque before I was halfway through because I was not given a spoon, and when I got one it was a regular spoon, not a soup spoon. My lobster bisque was pretty good. The pasta dish was good, too, but it was supposed to have truffles in it, and it must be that the truffle pigs were busy. We made the mistake of asking them to pace things better. So, the third course was delayed, and delayed, and then we started to watch our watches. The couple next to us was seeing the same show as us--they were very hyper and increasing our anxiety.

I ordered the steak and it was basically raw, maybe even still alive. Riche's lobster seemed a little raw to me, too. With the clock ticking down, I took the risk of asking them to put the steak back into the oven. It actually tasted pretty good when it came back. Dessert had to be boxed and eaten for breakfast the next day.

On the plus side the waitress was very responsive--maybe because we were relatively nice to her as opposed to the hyper couple next to us.

Maybe this is a good place on a normal day. Maybe.

Very nice restaurant, good ambiance and decor. Solid cocktails and beer selection. Entrees included pork, steak, veal, and more. Sides are separate. A bit on the pricey side, easily $50-60 per person.

We’re seated quickly and after about 10min waitress took our order (drinks, apps, meal), then disappeared. After about another 15 minutes, she reappeared and apologize for it to taking so long then disappeared again. App finally came out and was fine, food followed shortly there after, but the order was wrong and had to be sent back. She reappeared and apologized again, and we reminded her that we were STILL waiting for our drinks. She came by, drop them off (and they were wrong) then left again. Another waiter brought our food, and while the order was correct this time, they did incorrectly cook my husband steak. After that we didn’t see anybody until she brought us our bill. Would’ve been nice to though, because salt, pepper and a little bit of hot sauce would’ve done wonders for the quality of the food itself. Wasn’t horrible, just very bland. They did comp the drinks and appetizer without asking, but honestly I would’ve much rather had my food and taste better and be served promptly. Both of which would’ve been an easy fix, if the waitress would have been paying attention to us. It was brunch, but they were empty tables, so they weren’t overloaded. Just poor service.

The service was very good. We got fried green tomatoes as an appetizer, which was excellent. I had shrimp and grits, which was good, but a little bland as I like mine spicy.

We were debating between BBP and here… but my favorite server in all of Shirlington works here (Hans) so it was an easy decision. The evening did not disappoint. Hans (as always) was at the top of his game. The food here is fantastic (don’t leave without the pumpkin cheesecake) and the craft cocktails are divine. For all the times I’ve been here I truly can’t think of one bad thing to say.

The food was alright. I highly recommend the duck; it was delicious. The salmon on my date's salad was well done when we asked for medium but he said he enjoyed everything else. Both of our drinks were great. Our server was likely the best service I have ever had at a restaurant and I would go back exclusively to see him again. He was wonderful.

We made a reservation and the hostess seated us at the least desirable, highest traffic table in the entire restaurant. This was not conducive to the romantic dinner and show next door at Signature Theatre we had planned . We requested a move to a booth. She said "no, she needed the for a larger parties" in a not so friendly manner.
A manager just happened to be standing next to us so I called him over. He moved us to the booth we requested with a smile. We really appreciated this gesture.
Later I passed the hostess on my way to the restroom and she shot me a nasty look.
The food was delicious.The server was great.

Went here for Thanksgiving Day Dinner (though we just ordered the regular menu. Pork chop was still the best I have had after I first had it 2-3 years ago, and so big that I split it with my Mother in Law. Brussels and Asparagus were cooked perfectly. Service was excellent and very attentive. We will be returning more often!

Made dinner reservations for Thanksgiving. Loved that they offered a Thanksgiving set meal as well as their regular menu. Pricing was very reasonable, especially the set Thanksgiving menu. Everything was absolutely delicious. Loved the atmosphere and the service was great. Can’t wait to go back!

We had 1 turkey dinner with pumpkin pie dessert, 1 ribeye, prosciutto wrapped figs, fried green tomatoes, and French onion soup. Corn bread and popcorn is complimentary.
