We had reservations for 6P. There was a pre fixe menu available. One ordered from pre fixe (arugula salad, salmon and chocolate bourbon cake) which she said was excellent. I had the branzino which was delicious. Service was very attentive. There was a group near our table that was a little loud. I will definately return.

Food is mediocre. Service is terrible. Our waiter was very condescending and rude. He was so pushy to make us order right away and just had a bad attitude. Not worth the money at all.

We’ve gone 3x to make sure the service wasn’t a fluke (and due to the location being very convenient for us). Every time was the same terrible service and the food is entirely overpriced for what you get.

We had a great meal on Mother's day. This was our first time there so it's nice to know we have another good restaurant in the neighborhood. We had a 2:30 reservation and the place was filled but it didn't feel chaotic and it wasn ice that the tables weren't crunched next to each other. For Mother's Day, there was a $40 pre fixe menu of appetizer, meal and dessert. Great food. Excellent crab cakes and heavenly peach melba.

We had lunch at Copinette, which our friend recommended, and I must say I’m pleasantly surprised. The staff was very friendly and the food was amazing. I had truffle risotto and my husband had four cheese ravioli and both were very rich in taste. We both had their new signature cocktail, recommended by the server, called Eros Spritz, which was very delicious and it is a perfect drink for the summer! We highly recommend this place and will definitely come back.

What a nice find! We had a wonderful time at Copinette. Dining room is comfortable yet elegant with tables nicely spaced. I had their swordfish special, beautifully executed and my friend had the filet. Meat temperature was perfect. We finished the meal with madeleines which were fresh and warm. Our server was friendly, he recommended a sparkling Rosé which we enjoyed. Will definitely be back!

Steak frites at the bar was disappointing; very thin cut of beef and although it was close to medium rare, tough to do with such a thin piece of meat. Lots of gristle and fat, as well. The fries were quite good. Bar is a nice area, and the bartender was great. Wine list is pretty wide-ranging and reasonably priced. My wife had the halibut (supposedly a favorite here) and it was nice fish with a way-too-savory crust. Her sides were okay. I like the feel and we will return, but this wasn't a great start.

The food at Copinette is very tasty. I enjoyed my chicken dish...it was very moist and our friends enjoyed the branzino and halibut. There was jazz music since it was a Sunday evening and that was a nice experience except that it was a little too loud while we were eating and trying to talk to our friends. Overall, though, Copinette has a very nice menu and the wait staff are very accommodating.

Yawn.
Menu - a little bit of everything with no discernible theme. We went on a Saturday night at which they turned maybe 25 covers. How do they keep fresh ingredients for such a long and varied menu given their trickle of customers.
Food - good but salad was significantly overdressed.
Service - waiter started our gruff bordering on rude. Later in the meal he got super friendly and chatty and told us about how hung over the staff was after the owner plied them with free drinks at his other restaurant the night before. Uninvited oversharing!
I guess if you live literally next door, it’s worth going here once or twice before it inevitably shuts down. Definitely not worth a taxi ride from the upper east side.

Responded on May 9, 2019

Thanks for your feedback. We get daily food deliveries to ensure that we serve the freshest food & we are turning many more covers than 25. I apologize that your waiter overshared & have spoken to him how inappropriate that kind of conversation is. I am disappointed you didn't enjoy your experience & am more disappointed that I offered your school a donation to help raise money & you took advantage of my kindness by leaving such a negative review. Hope you can try us again.

The restaurant is lovely and the staff was very nice, but the food was mediocre. My husband really enjoyed his Cobb salad, however, my BLT was just okay. There was very little turkey on it and there was no bacon at all. I had asked for it with mayo on the side, but it came on the sandwich. Thankfully, it wasn't overwhelming. I wanted to enjoy it more than I did.
Perhaps I would try Copinette one more time and have the salad. I think that would have been a better choice.
If I was to refer the restaurant, I would say to avoid the sandwich.

Copinette
Responded on May 3, 2019

Hi, Thanks for your taking the time leaving us feedback and I'm very sorry to hear we missed the mark on your sandwich. It shouldn't have left the kitchen without bacon and I've spoken to my staff and kitchen and changed the way they are preparing sandwiches so we can better accommodate mayo and sauces on the side. I'm glad to hear your party enjoyed the Cobb salad and hope you can visit us again

I would have rated our experience higher however in the middle of dinner the staff told us to move to a different table because they decided they need ours for another party. We moved but found this request, of course, highly unprofessional, weird, and definitely uncomfortable. To our surprise the staff did not even bother to make nice and adjust our bill or at least offer free desserts or coffee, and on top of it they indicated us as ‘no show’ in open table. We live across the street from Copinette and this surely is not the way to get us back there.
