Horrible! Horrible! Why isn’t there an option for negative stars?!?! We went a year ago, bad experience so it took a long time to try again. We will not go back! Food is not worth the price, the wait is long and the food comes out cold. Go anywhere else!
Friends were visiting from out of town so we went for brunch since they had never been. Tried a unique bloody mary and hot chocolate! Brunch was delicious, service was great!
This was my first time here for Brunch. I had the duck hash and my brunch partner had the short ribs benedict. High marks for both of these entrees! The duck hash was flavorful, filling and served in an individual cast iron skillet which made for an excellent presentation. I have always liked Copperwood Tavern for dinner and will now add it to my go to places for brunch!
From walking in a to a smile at the Host Stand, getting waters right away and being greeted by Scott, our experience started off great. He suggested the Tomahawk, we got it and loved it! Thanks, we'll be back!

We came in hungry and asked our server what could come out of the kitchen quickly. She understood, made some suggestions and was back with our food in a few minutes. Eventually we ordered 5 things off the starter menu and used that as our dinner. The food was very tasty, came quickly and the server was helpful--checking on us without bothering us. We will visit again.
The scallops were superb and the sides are delicious as well. Service is attentive and timely.
Everything from the decor to the food was entirely average. Not bad, but certainly not worth a special trip. I had the filet, my wife had the trout. My steak was gristly but cooked to a good medium rare. The menu is a la cart, but when serving a steak with a heavy mushroom sauce, a bright, fresh garnish would be nice. And oh my goodness, the noise level, even with relatively few people in the restaurant, was off the charts. Sitting across from each other, my wife and i had to shout to be heard. There have to be better options in Shirlington. Next time I'm there, I'll hunt for something better.
We were never at this restaurant before and we very happy wit the service and delicious food. We were looking for a casual restaurant with a good variety of choices and this was IT!
Happy Thanksgiving Copperwood Tavern,
The service was beyond amazing, never met a staff more respectful and cheerful. As soon as I entered the restaurant, the hostess were just loving and welcoming. They gave me the best seat at the window and made sure I was comfortable. Roger our server was fantastic, made sure our order was right. We ordered the thanksgiving plate going for $26 consist of turkey, gravity, cranberry and stuffing which was to dye for. Amazing place I will be coming more often hopefully with the same hostess Frances and Jaelene and Roger. THANK YOU COPPERWOOD TAVERN STAFF!!!!
Portions were small. Especially for thanksgiving. Pricing was a bit exorbitant.
Paul the bartender was absolutely GREAT!! He was accommodating and funny. Good company to have for a Sunday brunch.
The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because of the table we were given. I asked to be moved but there were no other options at 5:00 on a Saturday--even though we had a reservation. The table was right next to the supply/drink station. Other than that, I would go back and the food and service was good.
The wife and I had a great anniversary celebration here. The food, service, and room were fantastic. And I loved the long whiskey list. My only problem was deciding which of the great menu options to choose.
First time trying and surprised at how good the food was! Had the fried chicken and waffles, eggs on bbq on English muffin and then the apple pie. Amazing! Even the popcorn they bring you to start is great. We were not brave enough to try their selection of moonshine! Maybe next time!
The service was rushed, courses piling up on one another. We were still eating our salads when the entree arrived, so we sent them back and asked for new ones to be prepared and delivered in a more timely manner.
But after all the earlier rush we had to wait a very long time for dessert.
My husband and I ate at the Copperwood Tavern before going to a play at Signature. I had the duck breast, he had the rainbow trout, and we shared a order of the asparagus. The duck breast had good flavor, although some of it was a bit tough. The swiss chard and pumpkin oil and butternut squash puree were great additions to the duck. My husband loved the trout, and we both enjoyed the asparagus, which was plenty for the two of us. Unfortunately, it was very noisy, making conversation difficult.
Food was awesome. Brussel sprouts and aged prime rib steak paired with mustang Sally beer hit the spot
Made a reservation for 12: 30 for Sunday Brunch and managed to get a window table -- excellent! The menu offers lots of variety and good choices. I stuck to my eating mgmt plan with an egg white omelette and got a salad in lieu of home fries on the side. Good service. The pancakes served at the table next to me looked fabulous....
Delicious brunch food at reasonable prices...my husband and I shared the green tomatoes appetizer, blueberry pancakes, and the short rib grilled cheese. We also washed it down with the Virginian cocktail. Will come back!
The wait staff was fine, but the hosts were terrible.
A local eatery that uses a farm to table approach to its meals. All of the produce and products are locally sourced. The menu is contemporary America and the dishes are well presented and generous. My wife and I love this place and go there often. The Shirlington town center location is perfect, parking is amble and the service staff are great. Each meal starts out with either fresh pop corn from the bar or little corn muffins and sweet butter. Our favorite starters are the Lobster Lettuce Wraps (sometime also served on a crostini); the Fried Goat Cheese and Virginia Speck [to die for]; and the Venison meatballs. Favorite main dishes are the gynormous Berkshire Pork Chop, the superb Dry-Aged Ribeye, the Pan Seared Salmon, Filet Mignon and the Venison Strip ) this is clearly a meat lover's place to eat!! They have a 32 oz Shenandoah Tomahawk for 2 I haven't been able to get my wife to agree to try, but it looks amazing. Pricing is very reasonable and this is definitely worth the trip.
In general, the food here is excellent and the small cornbread rolls a lovely perk. It’s pricey, especially for wine....$9-10 for what purports to be a large glass, barely measuring 6 oz. The ambience is poor for any conversation, incredibly loud, and the bar with big tv screens showing sports adds to the noise. I think this restaurant doesn’t know whether it wants to be hangout place for the younger set, or a first-rate restaurant where people will enjoy a quieter ambience while enjoying good food at above average prices.
Great place to go after work. Scott is an awesome server.
Used to be my favorite restaurant in Northern VA. The menu has gotten more expensive, the service has slipped, and the food isn't quite as good as it once was.
Still a great spot that I recommend, especially if you don't require metro access.
Met a woman friend for dinner. We worked together at one time. She had the prime rib with fries, I opted for the pork chop with brussels. There are issues with that little pot you serve hot water in - it has a lousy pour on it and when she used it to pour it splashed water on the table causing her to interrupt wait staff to fetch a towel to mop the table. Don't do that to your wait staff ~ that is a waste of talent to ask them to fetch towels. You should try things out before setting up your patrons. The food was tasty, perfectly done. Our waiter Jordan was helpful, attentive without being intrusive. He knew his menu inside and out. My peeve regards the pour. I ordered a glass of wine ~ the glass arrives not even half full. You charge me $11 for a glass of wine and having worked in the food industry I know there is a big mark up on booze. So why can't you give me a full glass? The decor is unimaginative. This would be fine for a chain like Bob Evans which the decor reminded me of or was it Aunt Sarah's???. Another gripe you have no control over - these damn unruly brats. The neighboring table had a slew of kids, one hit my chair and I turned around to see the brat doing cartwheels. Seriously I wondered what is wrong with the parents? I was preparing to give him what for if he did a repeat performance. Take your clan to Chuck Cheese, MacDonalds or teach them to behave in public - they were way old enough. I wondered if eating later would eliminate this kid interference. I like kids but when I am spending $65 dollars to dine out I really resent ill mannered brats diverting my pleasure from talking and dining with adults. Kids can act grown up before they are grown up!
Great farm-to-table restaurant in DC. I loved the ambiance and menu items. The service was spectacular, too!
The food was AMAZING! As a New York City visitor, I was so pleasantly surprised by the food. The server didn’t know the oysters for the night so gave a 4/5 stars, but otherwise- he was excellent and friendly.
Copperwood Tavern's decor is rustic and interesting without being overwhelming. They have an extensive menu with many options including two venison choices. For this visit I had the pork chop, which I recommend well done. It will still be moist on the inside. When it arrived it was tasty and was accompanied with a chunky applesauce. We order their sweet potato mash, which was delicious! However, I found it a tad pricy, for the price of the main course they might include the choice of one or two sides with the main course. To illustrate I awarded Copperwood Tavern Five Stars for Food, but only Three Stars for value. Nevertheless, I'm looking forward to returning.
It’s difficult to enjoy a conversation when you’re seated so close to the tables on either side of you that you are an unwilling participant in theirs.
The server spoke way to quietly, so much so that the only person at our table who could hear her was the person right next to her. Food tasted good, but everyone’s meals came out a little on the cold side.
We had to wait a good amount of time for the reservation, but they offered champagne while we were waiting, which was very nice. The food and service once we got our table was as usual, wonderful.
We enjoyed brunch here--it has a nice atmosphere and vibe. If we had a complaint, it would be that some of the food items could be seasoned a bit better (e.g. the fried green tomatoes)
I gave this restaurant many tries but it was the last time on Sunday. I ordered the grits. They came barely warm, returned them and when they brought it back, the grits were not cooked.
The worst was when they told me that was the way they were serving grits... Pathetic.
I have noticed that this restaurant has been going down slowly. The food is not what it used to be.
There are plenty of other places around.
The service was great and the inside of the restaurant is super cute! We loved that it was farm to table, and certain parts of the meal were really good, but other parts seemed to fall a little short. Would definitely give a second try though - we were the first table in for breakfast after they opened so maybe that had something to do with it.
Great food, drinks and service. The menu is not extensive but there is enough choices to choose from, the food quality was great as well as the portions.
As always, food and service were excellent! If you haven’t tried the brussel sprouts or the Gouda mashed potatoes, one word: amazing!
The menu options were great and the food was delicious!
Server hardly checked back with our table and allowed water glasses to sit empty. Poor overall experience.
Good attentive service and quick kitchen turn around. $1 Oyster special at least the Friday we were there.
Found the menu somewhat limited entree selection. Pedestrian Salmon entree. Vegetarian entree of speghatti squash with pesto had a nice presentation but flavorless. Bread pudding desert nothing to write home about.
Popular spot with outdoor seating and dog friendly. A decent evening but not high on the foodie scale.
