    I hadn't been to the Copper Cellar - West in years and was excited to dine there. Our meal was good in general and our server was superb. I had ordered the NY strip steak and found it to be a little more fatty and grizzly than anticipated.

    One of my favorite restaurants to go to for delicious food. The restaurant has a beautiful relaxing ambience. I like that on Wednesdays the bottled wine is half off the cost.

    The staff are working hard, but they are clearly understaffed. It was 24 minutes past our reservation time when we were finally seated. Our server was very polite and professional, but clearly had too many tables to keep up with. The food was good, and it was hot when it was served, but it took a very long time, likely because they don't have enough kitchen staff. The effort is great, but results are lagging for a restaurant of this quality.

    I made reservations for two on a Thursday evening. The hostess was warm and welcoming but unfortunately, that was the best part of the night. I was seated promptly but was not greeted or acknowledged by a server for about 7-9 minutes. While completely unapologetic she was not rude but not friendly either. Service was slow for the remainder of the meal. We ordered the spinach and artichoke appetizer which was fair to poor. The chips were stale. I ordered the prime rib sandwich and steak fries. I was served a piece of prime rib and burned potatoes. I explained what I ordered and the server went back to the kitchen and brought back another piece of prime rib on a piece of bread. I requested a different side than the potatoes and she said she would have them make fresh. She returned with somewhat less burned potatoes. I honestly think their steak fries are sliced older baked potatoes that are then deep fried. The prime rib was mostly fat and luke warm. Maybe this experience was not the norm but a member of management was the one to pick up the wrong food and deliver obviously burned “steak fries”. I have a feeling that the quality won’t improve until the staff and management team improves as well. This is definitely not an experience I will ever repeat which is a shame. Copper Cellar was once a very nice place to dine.

    I so wanted this lunch to be special as it was my daughters birthday celebration, but she was limited on time (as she had to get back to work )which I told the server when we arrived). The service was not good at all, I think the bar tender was trying to do both positions. We were there for 2 hours a great deal of it waiting on food & the “free” ice cream sunday. The food was just good, not great but the service was way below what one expects from Copper Cellars.

    We always enjoy the Sunday Brunch. However the last two time we have visited the service has not been very good. They never seem to have enough staff working on Sunday’s. Very unfortunate….

    Restaurant was busy after UT ballgame, but everything was very well done. Servers handled several large parties while still making time to give our party of 2 excellent service. Food was cooked perfectly and no complaints whatsoever! Highly recommend small filet and fried shrimp. French onion soup was delicious. One of our favorite restaurants.

    Celebrated an anniversary dinner with copper cellar and it was a phenomenal experience. I would definitely recommend the spinach and artichoke dip for a starter as well as the filet mignon for the main. Great prices for drinks as well.

    We went for a birthday dinner. Waited a decent amount of time before our server came to the table. My husband ordered a drink from the bar and it was definitely not right. My food was great, my husband ordered prime rib and it was barely warm. Not the worst meal, but not worth the price $$

    I booked it fairly on a whim, trying to find somewhere new that my boyfriend hasn’t talked about. It was great! Our server, Mika (not sure of spelling), was on top of it!! I was worried about timing of food (we wanted to split a salad before entrees) and she nailed it! The crab cake was nice and fluffy and delicious, the Caesar salad was crisp and light, and my steak was cooked perfectly. My boyfriend couldn’t stop talking about his salmon! It was pretty pricey to make it a normal date night spot but we will definitely be back!!

    We ordered a New York Strip and shared our meal, as we always have. My concern was that we requested well done, but it had quite a bit of red in it and my wife cannot eat it like that. I don't like to send things back, makes for bad etiquette, so I simply shaved the outer edges for her to eat. Everything else was great.

    We thought it was a “status” restaurant for retired $$$. The prices would’ve been ok, IF the food was good however we have had far better food elsewhere for same price. The two martinis 🍸 I had weren’t anything special. Needless to say, I was disappointed for my 50th birthday meal.

    We've lived in the Knoxville area for awhile and have driven by the Copper Cellar (West) many times and keep commenting that we should give it a try. It was time to give it a try and I'm very happy we did. I had the Lemon Chicken and my wife had the Shrimp with crab on the side. Both dishes were excellent. I didn't catch the name of our waitress but she was from Romania and was extremely pleasant and did a great job for us. We will return here many times in the future for sure! See the picture of the ice cream desert they brought for my birthday. It was delicious!
