Our table was waiting for us when we arrived. It took our server a few minutes to come and find us and bring us water. Otherwise service was good. Not bad but nothing outstanding. Simply what you should be expecting at this price point. Food is pricey but does taste good. Restaurant does not serve bread but if it does it forgot to bring us any. Desserts were good as well. Food arrives pretty quickly. Atmosphere is average for a place of this type. Meaning that again it’s really nothing exceptional but it’s what you would expect at this price point. If you do go here expect a price the bill but overall a decent experience.

First time there since they opened and liked the different areas they have developed for small groups for wine tasting. Very evident wine is center stage with racks of bottles everywhere. Tables are spread out. Food was great, the blackened fish tacos are spicy but delicious and very reasonably priced. My friend had a salad and 1/2 sandwich combo. She thought caesar was one of best she has had and really liked the pricing.
Will go back for sure.

Friendly staff. Decor and staff attire seemed overly casual for the type of food and price. Strip steak was tough, sides were tasty. The eggplant in the vegetable napoleon was bitter and unevenly cooked, other vegetables were very good. Tomato bisque and Caesar salad were very good. Even though this visit was a bit underwhelming, we will return to sample the prime rib and the pasta primavera.

Overall, the food was good. We shared a number of appetizers and they were good, especially the smoked shrimp. The ambiance was good, it felt comfortable however, the music was too loud. We had trouble talking to and hearing each other. The service was great except that they hostess did know I was there and so had other members of my party waiting in the front of the restaurant until I came and got them. I would return for another visit.

The waitress was very nice but I could tell she wasn’t trained by the restaurant. She didn’t know how to open a bottle of wine or pour a glass. When I asked for a decanter, she quickly got one but didn’t pour the wine in the decanter.

The food and atmosphere was good and we will return.

Hopefully the restaurant will do a little training

My group was in the back room. It was nice for us to be away from the main dining area - we were able to talk and have fun without feeling we were disturbing other guests. in the beginning our drink service was a little slow (one in our group had to go ask about our drinks) but after that all was good.

I am happy you have opened in West County Center. It was my first time at a" Copia" - I enjoyed it very much and plan on returning for dinner in the near future.

Food was ok. Service was poor. Our server was inattentive or overwhelmed. We received our bread after we finished our dinners, there were missing items from our dinners that came out later, we had to flag the wine steward down to place a dessert order. Was hoping someone would have stopped by the table or asked how things went, but no one did. No need to head over there again.

Prime Rib was touted as a house specialty and it was the fattiest (literally 1/3 was a round pod) and toughest I've ever had. Simple request on the bill prompted a confrontation with the Mgr for no reason whatsoever.

The food was great. It was a little loud when we walked in but then we seated in the back room and it was fine. Don’t understand the the bad service comments. We had a great waiter. Attentive, funny and on it. No complaints. Will definitely go back. Watch out for the chocolate cake. It’s very good but huge. Easily could feed 4! Enjoyed our meal.

The food was just “okay” for the prices Copia charges. The service was really lacking for an upscale restaurant....waited too long for drinks, too long for appetizers, and way too long for coffee, in fact, coffee came after we had finished dessert. Wife and son stated their steaks were too charcoals to the taste. My scallops were perfect as was the lobster and shrimp pasta. Last thing.....no dessert menu, so the waiter named them off. Pretty good assortment including a chocolate cake. We ordered a chocolate cake and a brownie dessert. When I got the bill, the brownie was like $8.....the cake was, get ready, $15!!!! That is way too over priced regardless how big the slice was. Not sure I will go back to Copia.

The décor is updated. But they are using regular banquet chairs for some of the seating. The oversized bar is too dominant and makes the dining area look like an after thought. Service was slow despite not the fact the place was not nearly full. The food was ok. dinner salad as loaded with onions that were not advertised. The swordfish was ok with a good size filet and a large amount of grits. The shrimp wrapped in bacon appetizer was too greasy. Generous pour of wine. Large wine list out of portion to the menu size. Prices were top end for West county. large wine storage and tasting area seems out of place.
Overall a lot of work in progress.

The bar is under staffed and very noisy. Apparently still using rental furniture until theirs arrives. Jumbolya had few shrimp and no chunks of sausage as advertised. Not a fan of stemless wine glasses. Side of grilled broccoli was not appetizing visually and inedible. Had high expectations and this experience was a let down.

Good was very good but pricey. Went to dinner with friends and we ended up spending $90 each for dinner and drinks. Not really what I had planned to spend but the service was good. It got very noisy for awhile and the place wasn't even full so I would imagine it's very loud at peak times

We had an awesome lunch at Copia III in Des Peres in Saint Louis, MO. We had a wonderful server by the name of Suzy; our sommelier was Sly who was equally wonderful; and during our meal, the owner of the restaurant, Amer, dropped by our table to engage in a delightful conversation. The manager, Tyler, was his usual spectacular!! We love this restaurant and it will quickly become one of the most highly rated and sought after restaurants in Saint Louis MO!

Dined at the Copia downtown years ago so looked forward to this night! Bad first impression when the bartender didn’t acknowledge our presence for 10-15 minutes while waiting for our table. Our waiter was good, wish I remembered his name. When our food arrived (I ordered the chicken lasagna, husband had beef stroganoff), mine was lukewarm; his meat was undercooked. They took mine back and zapped it under something which made it edible. Not worth the $100 we paid for dinner. Also, the furniture is pretty worn/outdated.

Hostess greeting us was friendly - however we were taken to a dirty table and had to stand to the side while it was being cleaned. The server had no training. When asked about menu items - he said the ONLY thing on the menu he has had was the burger. I’ve worked in several restaurants - the first thing we were taught was about the food and was given samples of everything on menu before being on the floor. He had no clue beer on draft and we were not provided wine/drink list. Basic serving etiquette was not followed - he was trying but you could tell he had no training. Very nice guy and you could tell he wanted to do a good job. Food runner that delivered food set the large tray on the table. Goat cheese balls were okay but way overpriced for what you get. Husband enjoyed the ribs but was given nothing (wet naps, extra napkins etc) to clean hands. He ended up dipping his napkin in his water glass to clean sauce off. Beef pasta in cream sauce was just weird - mushrooms were hard & black & meat was questionable. When asked if I needed a box - I said no it wasn’t any good - expected a manager to visit the table once the full plate of food was returned to kitchen but none came. No one asked us how our food was - managers (or people that looked like they were) were huddled at front desk - not one spoke or acknowledged us as we walked out - but did see us. Very disappointed - we were excited to have new dining option in the area since we eat out often.

We really enjoyed the old Elephant Bar where Copia WC now resides and thought we'd give it a shot. Their signature dinners are their prime rib entres, so I tried one. It was horrible! Couldn't hardly cut through it with a steak knife, much less chew it. On top of that it was barely room temperature; along with the mashed potatoes. My wife's chicken was raw on the inside. Not a good first impression at all; and the kitchen really let this one slip through. The manager did the right thing and comp'd our meals and begged us to return for a second chance. Not sure we will ... quite pricey for what we were served.

We were there for dinner on Saturday night didn’t have much of a wait and we were seated before our reservation time. The server was attentive and she can to our table right away. I ordered the gumbo and a caesar salad. It was weird the server never asks me if which I wanted first and brought me the gumbo first. It was overly salted. My husband had a Caesar salad and a shrimp pasta dish. His salad looked fresh and has nice green romaine lettuce mine on the other had was not the best. The lettuce
was barely green and the salad was just ok! The service was great the wine selection was great. I might try it again.

Based on reviews I’ve read Copia is settling in to being a fine dining restaurant. We had to wait about 5 minutes for our 7:15 reservation on a Saturday evening. We received profuse apologies from the hostess and the manager for our 5 minute wait. We noticed that the manager continued to be vigilant to the diners needs throughout the meal. There is an extensive wine list and it seemed that the wine steward is still learning where to find each bottle of wine. Wine bottles are on display on racks throughout the restaurant. Food was good - my husband started with the Copia salad and I had the Cesar salad - both of them good. We each had the beef tenderloin and enjoyed our steaks. We finished the meal with a tasty bread pudding. Overall I’d say that Copia still has some kinks to work out to make this a smoothly operating restaurant but we will probably return to see how this new West County restaurant develops.

As this place is newly opened, everything is still not very well organized. There are so many wine racks spreading out all over the place. It took times for the servers to find the wines that they’re looking for. Again, unorganized!
The food is ok!, but the chairs look so cheap and so uncomfortable. I assumed that their real furniture has not arrived yet and they just use those chairs for now.
