We had a fantastic waitress and the service and food was great. First time visiting there and I really enjoyed the ambience.
A limited brunch menu on a Friday but had no trouble finding something to order. The service was excellent. Our food was delicious, The only negative is they do not have double door so it is pretty cold near the door when someone comes or goes.
Our server Leslie was very friendly and helpful. The loaded lobster fries were absolutely fantastic. My fiance and I were both highly satisfied with our dishes, the duck and the pork belly. Would definitely recommend both of the those dishes, as well as the cast iron cookie for dessert.
Delicious pot pie; excellent service; and birthday bubbly was a nice treat.
Bridal party brunch
We went for brunch and had the Farmers Breakfast and the Pork Belly with bottomless mimosas. The bread pudding french toast is to die for. I recommend that you order a dollop of their cinnamon whipped cream to go on top - pure heaven! The pork belly was also really good.
As far as small complaints, the root vegetables were served cold and the service was a little spotty. But I would go back again. Recommend reservations for brunch, at least.
Always great service and great food!
Went there for dinner on a Saturday night. The food choices are good and everyone at our table of four enjoyed their entrée except for me. I got the Farm Greens salad with pulled chicken and the chicken definitely tasted past its prime (not spoiled, just old). I just took the chicken off and ate the rest of it, which was delicious. Our server took the salad off the bill which was unnecessary, but kind. Ambiance was nice and noisy enough that you don't want to bring your grandparents, but not so noisy that the young and middle-aged would have any problem hearing each other. Parking is a nightmare, so be prepared to spend and extra fifteen minutes trying to find a space.
My go to brunch spot. Love it here!
The only caveat to my review was the safety issue of the dishes they served food in. My entree (frittata) was served in a small cast iron dish. My server did warn me the dish was hot, but placed it on the table so the handle was close to me and upon reaching for other dishes placed on the farther end of the table, my wrist was burned on the skillet handle. I now have a penny-sized burn on my wrist due to this. While the server gave me this by not holding the handle (and carrying it on a tray), they should have wrapped the handle in one of their cloth napkins to prevent this from happening.
My friend and I went for their new Wednesday night date night deal and it was amazing! Such a great deal for $30! Each person gets a soup or salad, entree and dessert and you MUST split the cookie skillet.
Four of us went out for the first Wednesday of Date Night and we will for sure be coming back! From the second we stepped in the door to the final bite of our dessert, we could not have felt more welcomed and spoiled. The gentleman whom checked us in and served us was so personable and made us feel like we were the only people dining with him. The food was delicious and great portion sizes considering we only paid $30 for three courses. We will be coming back very soon and have already told our friends that Date Night is a must!
The food was absolutely amazing! I had the chicken thigh that fell off the bone & melted in your mouth & the flavor was over the top. My wife had the coffee rubbed steak that was made to perfection. Just the right amount of portions. Not too much but not too little. Then, the icing on the cake ( pardon the pun ) was getting a cupcake. I think it was called “Golden Butter Vanilla “ Oh my goodness!!! It was the most incredible tasting piece of cake I’ve ever had! So soft & tender & tasty. Then the frosting to top it off was so delicious! We will definitely be back. I guess it was the first night for them to have date night which I thought was pretty neat. The atmosphere was fun & cozy. Hats off!!
For the price, we were expecting really high-quality ingredients but it was pretty lack luster. The omelets had very little meat and veggies inside them and the crabby toast (which should have been fantastic based on the description) was very bland. There really wasn't a "crab cake" on top of the toast, it was more like shredded crab and they didn't seem to use fresh avocados, tasted like packaged alvo spread. Even if they focused on serving great bacon it would be a step in the right direction. The bacon was thin and blubbery. The place is so cute you just assume it's going to be fantastic but it's a far cry from Lowbrow.
Great but only had 2 steak dinners left and 1 boozy cupcake.
The food was great as it always is. This place is always busy but they still managed to get your food out quickly and provide great service.
Fabulous brunch! Service was exceptional, great food & vast beverage selection. Bottom less Mimosas were plentiful and delicious. We will be back again for dinner.
Our pizza came out incorrectly and to remake our correct order, it took about 25 min.
The Copper Hen is my favorite spot for lunch after enjoying an "Inspired by Books" tour at the nearby art institute. The food is inventive; the service is attentive, and the menu always has plenty of options to suit my taste. My only problem not having room for a dessert after cleaning my plate.
It was a super busy Sunday. They were down a cook. Experience reflected those circumstances.
The interior is cozy and hip at the same time. The servers were all enthusiastic without being in your face and the menu was full of delicious items that made it hard to choose. I loved the twists on the originals like the Croque Madame B.E.L.T and the bread/bakery items are stellar!
Booked on Open Table gave option for a special-bubbly with event-we were celebrating my birthday and was never offered the special item?
Enjoyed Copper Hen very much! Fun, relaxing and love the decor! The food is yummy and fresh. It’s kind homey yet fancy at the same time. The desserts are awesome and you want to take them all home with you. It had been a while since we ate there and was not disappointed one bit! Definitely will be back and not wait so long next time.
The food wasn't very good. From poorly prepared (burnt potatoes, eggs overcooked and rubbery where they weren't undercooked and runny, broken, curdled sauces) to tasteless pancakes and bland bacon, the only noteworthy thing was a very nice glass of milk. Lovely to look at but stacked with tables in every available space. Noise level was outrageous. At least it was cheap. With all the options available in the area, we won't bother with this spot again.
Great food, great service. Copper Hen is a great brunch destination. The biscuits and gravy could use a little more sausage gravy, but delicious nonetheless. Would order again. Don't stop in without having a cinnamon roll - heated up, of course.
Very good food. Great cocktails. Service staff was very friendly.and Knowledgeable. Atmosphere is fun and enjoyable. Very good overall experience.
Even with parking lot shared across the street must navigate a space. Overall good food and fine environment.
Good brunch, just a bummer multiple entrees weren’t available.
Great environment and Good Food Services prompts restaurant was clean and had a Very nice ambience. Menu offerings all look great and it was a struggle to choose which one I was going to have. I enjoyed the croque madame BLT everything about it was great the highlight of the meal for everyone was the breakfast potatoes with creme fraiche. Also some of the best biscuits and gravy I've ever had in a restaurant. I had stopped ordering them. YouTube restaurants continually letting me down but these biscuits and gravy did not disappoint.
Great FOH staff accommodated for a baby in stroller. The waitress was very attentive and made great suggestions. The food was very good
Food we ordered was fresh, but bit dry. Even the bread basket was like it had been sitting out for a while.
We went there to celebrate a big event in my life and I had wanted to go to the Copper Hen for years. We ordered a drink and an appetizer and waited for 20-25 minute for a pretzel! Our order had not even been taken yet so we told them that we wanted to leave and they comped my drink at least. Our waiter had a table of 20+ people and then was given 3 more tables. That is NOT what you do to a server! I did not even waste the time trying the cupcakes I had drooled over for years since we had not had dinner yet. Very sad for me :(
By far me and my wife’s favorite lunch, dinner, and dessert on date night. The service is informative and pleasant to speak with, we will be back again and again!
Food was overpriced given the mediocre quality and taste. I have a feeling they made a killing for Valentine's fleecing all the couples going out on a dinner date with their set price/set menu that night. Most of the food was in very small portions and even if the ingredients were high quality the way the food was prepared made it all taste of poor quality. Watery mushroom soup, bitter beet and other root vegetables, basically no use of fats, salts or starches in the entire meal, even the braised short rib was only a third of a portion size (given the price they should have at least include the whole short rib piece. We left hungry at the end of the night). Only good things was the ambiance, dessert and drinks. Drinks are pretty strong which I'm guessing they do to make sure you don't pay attention to the food. There are definitely other places to eat in the Twin Cities of better quality for the price and some for even less of the price.
This is not our first time at this restaurant. We love this spot for breakfast and brunch. the pastries are beautiful and always deliver. We thought it would be a fun spot for a prefix Valentines dinner. However it was hands-down the worst I’ve ever had. The portions were incredibly small, the food was lukewarm at best and nothing was particularly tasty except for the desserts. It felt like the restaurant wasn’t prepared for the large volume of people and dishes. Everything looked and tasted like it was made days before and barely heated up. I was so disappointed. I’m also vegetarian and I told the restaurant I wanted the veg option when I made the reservation, and when we arrived. They said they had veg Alternatives. As it turned out they only had 2 vegetarian substitutes for a 5 course menu and it was a combination of two other dishes that I already had. I think the worst part was at the portions were just so painfully small. For $60 a person we could’ve gone to a restaurant and gotten an entree, salad and a glass of wine each. We left hungry after expensive bill and a very long wait in between dishes. We ended up getting pizza because it was that disappointing of a dinner. Go for breakfast and the pastries, but skip dinner.
Short ribs were cold. dry and over cooked. I’m more than willing to pay $100/person or more for dinner. But not for that menu or quality of food. Average at best.
Overpriced, way small portions and the food was overcooked.
The food was delicious and different from any restaurant we’ve been to. Drinks were amazing, unique and beautiful presentation. The atmosphere was chill with good music playing. Also, the ambiance is beautiful- rustic, pretty wallpaper mixed in with brick, big wooden sliding doors, cool bar, etc. Nice place to be at and will definitely keep going back. They have some other restaurants too- copper cow and also, grey fox coffee. Must go places in MPLS!
What an incredible Valentine’s Day dinner. Lovely chic casual atmosphere. Friendly staff. Fantastic 5 course dinner with wine pairings. The best b
our server (Nick) was excellent. the food was very good. the temp in the room was a little cool, but we sat by a brick wall. next time we will sit toward the middle. we will certainly return to this restaurant. My wife loved her food and "when Mama is happy, everybody is happy."
