    I’ve visited the Copper Crow for cocktails and dinner twice in two weeks and my experience has been fantastic. I’ve ordered the Wandering Cowboy , Risotto ai Funghi , Crab Tower, and Rage cheesecake. Everything has been delicious and the service is excellent. The bar service is especially good. I like their beer selection and the cocktails are quite robust! I plan to visit again soon.

    We’ve been to The Copper Crow many times, most recently last night. As always, the menu is widely varied, the dishes are creative and well prepared. I’d rate the food, overall, as very good to excellent, varying in that range by the diners’ choices. Our server was terrific. Now for the bar. Cocktails are spot on. The beer choices are vast, with ABVs from zero to over 12%. Sadly, however, wine list is short and the wines are unappealing. Ordinarily, the solution to that problem is simple: if you’re into wine, bring your own. Inexplicably, however, for the first time since The Great Flood, The Copper Crow now imposes a corkage charge — to which I don’t object — of $50 per bottle — which is OUTRAGEOUS. Just for your information, that’s more than double the corkage that any other mid-tier restaurant in Albany would have the chutzpah to impose. My guess? Unless the corkage is reduced to $20 or less or the wine list is hugely expanded with good options at reasonable prices, The Copper Crow may gradually become less a dining venue and more a burger-and-beer bar. That would be a regrettable loss.

    This was our first visit to The Copper Crow per the suggestion of a co-worker. We both had the Korean BBQ Short ribs. It was super tender and juicy! Loved the sautéed vegetables, sticky rice and cornbread. We were both impressed and will definitely go back! Not a bad drive from Stillwater for a quality meal! Loved the atmosphere and the fun vibe of the place.

    Fabulous meal and service as always; creative twists on a global menu. Our group of 3 enjoyed the brussels sprouts, basic green salad, Newport chowder, schnitzel, quinoa and salmon salad and smash burger - all fresh and recommended!

    I was impressed by the lively atmosphere and attentive service. We started with the Wonton Rolls, which were generously proportioned, offered a harmonious blend of crispiness and tenderness, making it an early standout in the meal. A commendable start that hinted at the potential for a memorable dining experience. However, as the main courses took center stage, the narrative took an unexpected turn. The Dry Aged Pork and the Wandering Cowboy (ribeye steak) were served in impressively large portions, but they left much to be desired in terms of flavor. Despite the generous servings, both meats leaned towards blandness, missing the opportunity to captivate the palate with a more robust and savory profile. Just as hope wavered, the dessert arrived, rescuing the meal from the abyss of mediocrity. The apple pie was more of a Apple fritter donut like dessert, but it was very good. Turning the spotlight to the mixology prowess advertised by the establishment, the cocktails failed to live up to the hype. Despite the promise of expert craftsmanship, the lack of innovation and distinctiveness in taste left me yearning for the inspired creations that elevate a dining experience beyond the ordinary. Instead, the concoctions tasted like most cocktails found in typical bars. The Copper Crow presents a tale of highs and lows. The wonton rolls and the dessert were my favorites. However, the lackluster performance of the pork, steak, and uninspiring cocktails cast a shadow over the overall impression. While the attentive service adds a positive note, it leaves me hesitant to embark on a return visit. The restaurant's potential is evident, but the execution falls short of creating a consistently memorable dining affair.

    I made a reservation for two people for 5:15. Got to the restaurant at 5 only two other tables were occupied at time of arrival. We were given the smallest table next to the bathroom entrance. I asked if we could have a booth hostess said all booths and other tables were reserved for 5:30 or 6. I said ok and took the smallest table I ever saw. Well we were done eating at six and none of the booths that where empty when we arrived had any parties at them. It is a shame that a party of two always gets the least desirable table in the restaurant. We were lied to so I will never go back to this mediocre eating establishment.

    I really like the homey feel, the Copper Crow is a nice place for small groups, casual drinks and bar food. But the food has become gradually more disappointing, sorry to say. The menu really doesn't change, but even that isn't a deal-breaker. The items that we initially liked are just not as good - too much dressing, smaller amount of smoked salmon, the new seared tuna was bland and served on a huge pile of risotto or something similar. Foods that I can cook as well, myself, and I'm not a great cook. I am very sorry for being so blunt, but I really like the Copper Crow owner, the people, the service, and the vibe. If the goal is to be a bar and lounge with good bar food, I think you're okay. But if it's to be a restaurant with moderate-range cost, I think the food falls short.

    I got the mushroom Swiss burger, which I liked. Disappointed with the fingerling potatoes as it was a plain potato, no seasoning or flavor. My husband had the pork spatzle which the pork was dry and over cooked. Purple cabbage tasted like black licorice which we didn’t care for. I’ve eaten here before and liked the food, but maybe tonight was an off night.

    My previous experience at the Copper Crow was a five star event! Our visit on Sunday, December 16 was disappointing compared to our first experience. It was a rather quiet Sunday afternoon for the restaurant yet the staff was quite sluggish in addressing our table. Several of our food items were Overcooked, including burnt toast on a steak and cheese sandwich and nearly incinerated potato/french fries… The amount of steak included in the steak and cheese sandwich seemed rather skimpy compared to the price point. My dining partner ordered a double bloody Mary, yet it was clearly only a single single shot… Nevertheless, we will be back because the first time through was so wonderful and I’m just thinking that the copper crow had a bad day, Sunday…

    From the moment I entered the Copper Crow I was swept away by the atmosphere they have created with decor and lighting; the ambiance is soothing to the senses. As for what they serve, I found their menu inspiring! Clearly, the Chef has a flair for locally sourced food, prepared with love and creativity, and presented beautifully. My friend and I are already planning our next Copper Crow experience!

    We made a last minute reservation for after theatre dinner. Consequently we got a tiny table in the back. However, the food, the service was perfect! By the time we left, (7-ish) it was quite noisy “energetic?”. Loved the creative menu, every item was generous and well presented! I was pleased to introduce my friend to the Copper Crow which is one of my favorite places!

Not only was the food delicious (and plated beautifully), but the other patrons dining were the type of people you'd like to be around. A place for respectable and beautiful people for sure.

    The service was thoughtful and consistent throughout our large groups’ dining experience. We picked what seemed to be a fairly busy night, so drink service was a little slow, but given the number of full tables and medium to larger parties, that’s to be expected. On that note, DEFINITELY take advantage of their online reservations if you’re planing on a larger group(8 max online). Anything larger than 8 you’ll need to call though. That said, the food and drink were wonderful- fantastic flavors as well as a great variety for various diets and preferences. And for those unsure of certain ingredients, our waitress easily answered any questions, as well as offered suggestions when one of us was stuck between choosing one dish or another. Atmosphere was the right blend of old-world bard & distillery meets cozy modern cocktail bar. When asked where to grab a bite on Broadway, I’ll absolutely be recommending Copper Crow to folks!

    Happy to hear that everything was generally good but sorry to hear that the Key Lime Pie was not. We do make it from scratch in house and usually it gets great reviews. I have passed your comment along to our chefs so that they can figure out what might have gone wrong with your pie!

    We were a group of 8 friends (one recent widow) meeting to mourn the loss of and celebrate the life of our friend's husband who died by suicide. Soon after paying the $500 bill. we were rudely asked to leave because 'they needed the table'. But there was another large table open and NO ONE was waiting to be seated. When we told them what the circumstance was, we didn't even get an apology. Horrible.

    I’m not certain why you felt it necessary, when leaving a restaurant review, to inflate the total of your bill by 30% or to mention the passing of your friend’s husband. We’re very sorry for her loss, but sincerely doubt he would have appreciated being the topic of a restaurant review. We did not ask you to leave. Our GM politely explained, only after you had been at the restaurant for over 2 1/2 hours, had enjoyed your meal, had paid the bill, and had been at the table for another 20 minutes more, that yes, we did need the tables on a busy Friday night but would be happy to have your party stay and enjoy drinks & conversation in our lounge. I’m sorry you were offended by this and yes, there was people waiting to be seated and once we reset your tables, we started seating them.
