We had an absolutely lovely dinner tonight at Copper. A quiet, intimate atmosphere and attentive staff, in addition to great Indian food(both traditional and creative dishes), made it special.

Apps: Chili-glazed Seared Scallops w/turmeric, cumin and ginger sauce, fresh apple and golden raisins.
Fresh greens w/Matchstick Veggies.
Entrees: Chicken Tiki Masala, Curry of Jumbo Prawns, Cucumber Salad and Nan.
Dessert: Medley of Sorbets (raspberry, coconut, mango and caramel).
My husband had a glass of a Willamette Valley, Oregon Cabernet blend (delicious) and I an unusual and refreshing Olive, Lime and Mint mocktail w/a sugared rim .
So good!!!!!!

We have been to this great restaurant more than half a dozen times, and the food is ALWAYS delicious.
Usually the service is on par with the food, but our recent service was absolutely awful. We were not checked on again for 40min after our main entrees, and ultimately had to motion to the front desk manager to get our food boxed up and for our check.
Based on past experience, this is an anomaly; and I suppose this could be choked up to a busy New Year's Eve dinner service.
An amazing meal as always, a complete service let down.
Well worth a visit.

The food and service was exceptional as always. Love Copper, wish it’s sister restaurant was the same! Blue Taj is awful, food and service was horrendous! Hard to believe these two restaurants are associated with each other. Always a great meal and amazing service at Copper!

The only thing causing me not to give an "outstanding" overall rating was the bar service. I ordered a "Martini, straight up and with a twist" and got vodka neat (room temperature) with both olives and lemon peel. (Yuck!) They quickly re-made my drink, but for my 2nd round I received both olives and lemon peels again.

The food was outstanding. (Some of the best I've had.) Additionally, our server was very attentive. Would definitely return.

The indian menu is innovative, fresh and flavorful. Our half of our evening was spoiled due to a big and loud group beside our table.
Recommend them to create a separate dedicated space for big groups which would not affect others.

After a long day traveling, I wanted to have a nice dinner - relaxing pace, good food, good service. I had been to Copper once before and had a good meal out on the patio, so I booked there.

When I walked in, the person at the front desk said "Just one person? Do you want to take a whole table, or do you want to sit at the bar?" After that, he walked me ostentatiously to the bar area and said "Only if you're comfortable here." What was I supposed to say, after that?

Instead of a nice, relaxing meal, then, I got to sit at the bar. No tablecloth, no waiter, uncomfortable chair, other people sitting next to me and having distracting conversations (not their fault, I should have been at a table with some privacy).

The bartender, who of course was my "waiter", took my drink order really quickly and then said "Do you know what you want to eat?" And then didn't take her eyes off me until I ordered, like I was wasting her time. The meal was really rushed overall. It was ok food, but not great, definitely not as good as I remembered from the last time. But maybe that was because the service and environment were so abrupt, and I had a hard time enjoying it.

I ended up paying over $50 for ok food and one glass of wine, which would have been fine if I'd had an enjoyable time. But I definitely didn't. I took the trouble to book on OpenTable, and there were tables for two people open the whole time I was there. People who came in with three people were seated at tables for four, no problem - even though they were "wasting" one seat, just like I would have been. I was treated as a second class citizen because I came in as one person. It was depressing and gave me a bad taste in my mouth, and I won't be going back. Too bad.

We had a fantastic anniversary dinner last week at Copper. We ordered the lamb chops and the chicken from the bottom portion of the menu, along with the cauliflower starter and Naan (of course) and they were all outstanding! One of our best Charlotte meals! Plus, the waiter brought a complimentary dessert for our special day and it, too, was delicious! We'll be back!

I really enjoyed the food here! The presentation was very nice and the flavors were delicious. I appreciated that the portions weren't too large. I had a starter and a dinner plate with naan, and still managed to eat almost all of my food. Additionally, the service and ambiance were great. This is a restaurant that I'd definitely recommend to friends for a date night.

The ambience was very good, especially compared to most Indian restaurants I have been to. The menu was authentic,tasty, unique and creative at the same time. We ordered Goan Prawn and Punjabi Gosht, both were very good. We really enjoyed our dinner, looking forward to go back again and try some of the other dishes.
