The food was fantastic but our service took away from our overall experience. When we arrived we were informed that they had several walk-ins and our reserved table was given away even though we were 5 mins early. They had us sit at the bar for 15 mins with two other couples that they did this to. When we asked for a dessert menu, our server presented us with our check instead.

Our first time at Copious was a pleasure, due largely in part to the great service we received from our server, Charles. The food was very good. The only negative was that, even w/ a reservation we had to wait a while and the restaurant wasn't even close to being full.

We had been to Copious a few weeks ago and found it very inviting. We encountered Charles as our server and also met Chef Brian Wilson. What a magnificent experience!
We found out they have live music on the weekends for Brunch. We attended yesterday and we were not disappointed. Service was superb and the food was absolutely great. Chicken and Waffles as well as the Shrimp and Grits ( quite possibly some of the best i have EVER had. ).
Would not hesitate going back and would highly recommend. Once again, Charles was over the top with his service.
Nice job Copious!!!!

I always ask for a margarita on the rocks no salt. It came with salt, so my drink tasted like Gatorade. Yes, I should have sent it back but I did not want to risk having the drink I was served poured in to another glass and mixing the salt up more. The service was slow. We waited 19 minutes to have our drink order taken at 6:06 pm on a Saturday night. The food was good but the mac and cheese was bland. Maybe the salt from my margarita could have been put in the mac and cheese. I would definitely go back because the issues were server specific.

Not the best experience. Ordered the chips and artichoke dip and was served the bottom of the bag of crumbs. A handful of patrons were there. They had the time to offer better quality of food.
We got our check and went elsewhere for dinner.

Food was hit or miss - our appetizer and side were delicious but the entree fell short. The sever was inattentive and when we tried to explain the issue with our entree he must not have been listening because he told the chef the opposite of our problem. They took $2 off our $100+ bill, didn’t even offer properly cooked food.

First time to Copious and was very impressed. The food was very good and our waiter, Charles, was fantastic. We went Saturday evening and it was very busy. The hostesses and some of the staff seemed a bit overwhelmed with the chaotic atmosphere of a busy Saturday night and events both upstairs and downstairs. This would not prevent me from coming again or recommending it to anyone.

I had the pleasure of attending Copious Saturday Brunch with live music.
I was undecided on what to order & our server a handsome man of color played a game with me of rock/paper/siccors 🙂
Chicken & Waffle was an excellent choice.
Our server was very attentive & took great care of us. I look forward to trying the shrimp & grits during my next visit.

It wasn’t terrible but it took over an hour to get our food. I had the steak which was mediocre. The butternut squash soup looked fancy but was bland. It was over $100 for the soup, wine, and entree but not worth it in my opinion. I may come back to try a different entree but wouldn’t recommend to a friend.

Server was very nice, but didn't know the menu very well. She also didn't know what the specials were, yet kept attempting to take our orders prior to getting us the information on them. She did this three times!
Wine list is pretty limited for the by the glass varietals
The cheesecake was terrible. The flavors were very harsh and the overall presentation of the item was poor.

I ve eaten here several times and im usually very happy. I ordered the shrimp and scallop rosotto and was disappointed that the shrimp were so small, that the rosetto was actually rice, and the serving size was skimmpier than usual. Taste was great, but ive had friends order this dish, which was why i wanted to try it. Hopefully, this was a fluke.

PurpleLady, Thanks so much for joining us for dinner! We appreciate your business. My name is Brian Wilson and I am the Executive Chef. I want to apologize for your dish. I can assure you that the risotto you had was actually cauliflower. We may have adjusted the shred size unintentionally leaving you to think we used rice. The shrimp we carry and use is a 16/20 sized shrimp which gives us 16-20 shrimp per pound. It sounds like you got some of the 20 size and not the 16 which I apologize for.
