 (New York Area)·Dined 6 days ago

Seated promptly when we arrived just a couple of minutes before our reservation (and the restaurant was very busy so kudos to the folks who figure out timing for seatings). Shared a crab cake appetizer which was large enough for the two of us as it was two smallish crab cakes. Nice flavor. I had the salmon and it was excellent! Husband had one of the specials, the short ribs and he thought it was very good. No dessert. Nice wine list. Timing was good; in the reservation I had noted we had theater tickets for 8:00 and we were out of there in good time.

Dinner was outstanding. The main dining room is lovely and spacious, wait staff was attentive and professional - made you feel like you were their only interest that evening - very relaxing! The diver scallops with risotto was wonderful, and my husband raved about the short rib with polenta.

This is such a pretty restaurant /inn with so much old word character and ambience without being stuffy at all. The menu selection is not run of the mill. The only aspect I did not like was the small table size which was too close to the next table.

I have to admit I was very disappointed. I had not been to the Copper Beach Inn in years; we used to visit all the time for a special occasion. We would sit in the dining room. The service used to be very good and more upscale. It was truly a special occasion restaurant. We recently visited on a Sunday afternoon for my grandmothers 90th birthday. The main dining room was closed so we sat on the terrace. I felt badly because we wanted to make it special for her but it was very average. The menu was limited, the atmosphere was cold, the food was underwhelming. It is just not what it used to be.

We spent the weekend at the Inn for our 25th wedding anniversary. Enjoyed two very nice dinners there as well as breakfast both days. Most of the service was great, food was amazing. Way better than what we thought it would be. The lemon pancakes were soooo good. We also really enjoyed the hanger steak and the wiener schnitzel. We are definitely going to return to this quaint little Inn. Loved it there :)

This was our first time at this restaurant and it was wonderful. This place is very clean and so comfortable inside. I love the big fireplace as you walk in and the comfy old inn feeling. Beautiful gardens outside too. The food is outstanding, great wine list, and the service was perfect. It was a pleasure to talk to the owner as he stopped by every table. We are very picky with our martinis but the bartender was spot on with them. Thanks for making it a great night. We are coming back next week!

Perfection! we had out-of-town guests and wanted to take them to a classic Connecticut but Foodie experience. The Copper Beach Inn gets High Marks on all fronts.
We were a little nervous to try it with guests, being that it was so bad in the past, but we heard a new chef was worth a try. Yes! We will be back soon for ourselves to try more dishes on the vast menu. Bon Appetite !

My family really enjoys the food and nice atmosphere at the Copper Beech..A wonderful birthday gathering recenty had vegan and traditional menu items.. all very good! I do not usually do reviews, but we had a very nice Sunday brunch at the Copper Beech Inn. We were most impressed by the server, Sam, who went out of his way to take care of our drink orders (and making them!), the table, and serving our meal.

The service was mixed. Thinking they must have a lot of new staff as this was not typical. Our waiter did not know how to properly pour wine from the bottle we bought and never returned to continue the pour. Our son ordered soup that tasted very off so he didn't eat it. We told the waiter when he returned, and he went off to the kitchen to find out about it. Upon return he indicated a taste was done and they dumped the pot. It was rather odd to see that soup still on our bill. The tuna was delicious. The live music was great. The lady pouring water tried to reach all four glasses from the same side of the table and could not reach. We don't expect the same service here that we would receive at a diner. Perhaps a little training of staff would make a huge improvement.

We were at the Copper Beech years ago, for an anniversary. This is not a good place for an anniversary now. While it's quite fine for an average dinner, it didn't meet our criteria. It was loud and the other diners were dressed very causally. (Mostly boaters). The tables for two were not private. The service was only fair because(I think) that there were too many diners than there were waitstaff to attend to them. The food however, was excellent. To sum up, not for an anniversary but fine for an average night out.

My wife and I love the Copper Beach Inn! We have been going there for years. The wait staff is very knowledgeable and polite.

The food is wonderful and they offer great well thought out seasonal addhitions to their menu.

However the music could be a little more on the cool jazz or dinning type of music. They were playing Rolling Stones, Beatles and other genres of music which I like but not suitable for dining

Bottom line is: This is our go to place!

Given the reputation of the Copper Beech Inn we were anticipating a lovely night celebrating our anniversary. We arrived on time and were seated promptly in the front room although the host made no mention of my special celebration dessert request (yes or no) submitted through Open Table. The first server to approach the table was energetic, polite, and offered water and the menu/wine list. Unfortunately, the service went down hill from there. During the course of the evening glasses went unfilled, excessive time went by between inquiries, food particles were left on the table during course changes and required a request from us to clean the table, a second glass of wine went missing until the meal was practically over, the server announced after a considerable wait that the lamb order had run out (but somehow arrived later) and on and on. An apparent floor manager greeted several tables (regulars?) immediately adjacent to ours but bypassed us on two occasions and as we exited through the front door made no effort to say hello or goodbye. When the bill arrived one entree was overcharged as was my wife's wine selection. The mistake was explained by our (young) server that he had no input control, "prices were in the system" but he immediately secured a revised bill. Despite all this, the food was very good and good value for the (correct) money. The lamb (me) and scallops (my wife) were expertly prepared and, along with the fried oysters, delicious. The only food negative were the piroulines served with dessert; they were soggier than a New England summer rain and tasted stale. A replacement order was served and they weren't much better.
Happy to give the Copper Beech for the food (minus the piroulines) but only ** for the apparently untrained service.

Overall it was a great experience. The grounds are gorgeous, the atrium was so beautiful. The setting is very romantic and upscale. The food was good, the escargots were a little disappointing, but the halibut in brodo was delicious. The scallops were cooked to perfection but the lobster risotto was starchy. The beet raviolis were wonderful, although the goat cheese overwhelmed the sauce that was served with the raviolis. The bread was good. The service was impeccable. Overall, we definitely enjoyed the meal and the surroundings. We will definitely be back again.

Nice menu with a good combination of appealing dishes. Not particularly innovative and certainly not extraordinary but all apps and entrees were well presented, nicely prepared and very good. Lots of service people running around but they really didn't know their function. Had to flag them down for simple items like salt, ground pepper and proper silverware while our waitress Arden enjoyed a prolonged personal conversation at another table. Desserts were also good but do yourself a favor and DO NOT order espresso at the end of your meal.
