    We ordered the bolognese and the roasted chicken dish from a very limited menu. The bolognese would have been returned at most places and was typical of a canned sauce on large macaroni. My husband didn't eat half of it. The "roasted" chicken was not roasted but looked like it had been blanched. It was served over a bed of butter noodles that were overcooked; the dish was bland-tasteless and not warm. We attempted to use our gift card for the second time in 3 months and again it did not work. This time, again, we waited 20 minutes for them to try to figure it out but they could not. We now still have a $200 gift card for Copper & Salt which we probably will not try to use again because it is so embarrassing and stressful when the card doesn't work and the food is really not good --and far from worth the chaos; the whole thing ruined our evening. The waitress was very nice and so was the manager who eventually had to try to figure it out. Since we had had this very same problem 3 months ago and went through about 3-4 weeks with the previous manager, who eventually - at my prodding and prodding- sent us a new card (the one that didn't work), it is unbelievable that this company has not figured out how to manage their gift card system. It is a not only taking advantage of public trust that these cards will work when you invest in them but it is a misuse of those funds when the client is unable to use them. Makes me skeptical of their entire business practice. AND, when the food is barely passable it's even more concerning.. Do NOT buy gift cards from Copper & Salt and do not eat there if you want a nice meal. Open Table should consider not listing this restaurant on the website as it a major disappointment compared to other restaurants.

    We've been to Copper & Salt a couple times and have thoroughly enjoyed the staff, the atmosphere and the amazing food .. and the view is wonderful! This will definitely be one of our favorite "fancy" dining locations in the future! Thanks to Sabrina, Zachary and the great chefs in the kitchen .. we appreciate your time and talent!

    We though the food was decent but not great and not up to the prices. It was a special event for us and did not meet the test for that. I was expecting more than an "Anthony's" experience but that is what we got but for more money. It was a bit of a disappointment frankly

    Short rib paparradelle very good. My dad really enjoyed the lamb chops. We felt the halibut with price point of $39.00 while tasty should have come with a veg. The service could be somewhat improved although our server was friendly enough.

    My second visit. Both visits had issues at host stand. This weekend, host stand struggled with balancing reservations and walk ups for Sunday morning and went back and forth on where to seat people. Highly recommend they think about strategically seating young kids on lower tables or a family friendly corner of the restaurant -- several young kids struggling to stay put on cocktail height stool and saw a toddler even fall off. One family smartly requested to be relocated to a safer table, but then the hostess placed another toddler there. Also, noticed some couples in bar who probably didn't want to be dining an arms length from kids. Went during brunch hours but were handed breakfast menu -- not a big deal. That being said the wait staff was fabulous and did a great job even though busy! He more than made up for our initial concerns. Food was delicous. Valet crew even stored our bikes for us. We will go back and hopefully host station will work out their kinks in coming weeks as I imagine this will be a busy spot when patio opens and lots of walkers are present. Sidenote: Highly recommend increasing signage from ruston walking path/water play area as we overhead a few folks asking/wondering if there was a restaurant inside the hotel after being turned away at WildFin.

    The Apps were really good, but they wound up making my Steak way too rare. Asked for medium and is was extremely rare. Service was bland. If I had asked for rare they would have just pulled it out of the fridge and put it in the plate lol. Drinks were pretty decent. Ambiance was good. Noise level was moderate. Would go back but would emphasize that they cook my food more on the well side.

    Very loud acoustics, initially received very stale bread but was happily replace. Only slight annoying because the server had no doubts about it being stale, and we overheard another table commenting about the stale bread. And the Mozzarella could have been more spreadable for the bread, was rubbery. Drinks tasted good but came in very tiny glasses, hard for my husband to hold since he is 6’6” the glass was Childs size for him. Outside of those few minor things we really enjoyed out time and food. Would go back but maybe request a booth in the back corner to help with the noise

    Everything was great with food and service. It’s too bad that the beautiful view is ruined by the activities on the walkways in front of the restaurant. I’m guessing when they decided to build the hotel they did not know the intent of that space. There is something wrong with watching a dog using the front lawn for a bathroom while you are eating a $35 entree and a $15 glass of wine. The outside dining has the kids water park right in front of it. That is a shame. I wish them luck.

    Beautiful setting with the table views of Commencement Bay. The food was well prepared. The service was professional, there when needed but not overly pampered. The menu is limited and, though they had exactly what I wanted, it seemed sparse with not much choice.

    Celebrating 2 Octogenarian friends’ BIG decade. Best view table far left end of restaurant. Good Martinis served in lovely glasses. Attentive service from Patience. Excellent Caesar Salad and 2 pasta entrees which we found we could have shared. Sticky Toffee Pudding could have been stickier! Thanks for a great evening watching happy families pass by on the waterfront.

    Waitress served us spoiled ice tea, and then when we mentioned it, she said well she would have to brew some more. Seemed bothered by us asking. Eggs were way over cooked and then when we said something, we got the egg back way too runny, not how we ordered it. They didn’t compensate for the numerous mistakes.

    Halibut was the best cooked I've ever had. The only reason I gave it a 4 star overall is that both the halibut and the risotto was underseasoned. The risotto tasted like starchy nothing. Both could have been lightly seasoned and it would have made the dish a 5 star overall.

    My father made the reservation and checked that we could order a cheeseburger beforehand, if needed. Our server told us we could not order one and our order was made wrong. I thought she didn’t serve us as well as others because we are young (prom dinner). This was a restaurant recommendation from my dad’s friend, Loren Cohen, so the experience was well short of expectations.

    Views are amazing there! Service was great! Our waiter was very nice! I was just a little disappointed in the menu. I ordered a BLT and it came with really thick type bacon that had a lot of fat on it. I will go back but will order something different. It is very nice and modern in this place tho.
