My friends and I were meeting for brunch and hadn’t seen each other for quite some time - we were told we needed to leave because we had hit our 2 hour time limit. We thought that was very rude and it made us feel really uncomfortable.

We went for Sunday brunch. The eggs benedict were very tasty. My friend ordered quiche of the day and they were already all out at 10:30 am, but he had eggs benedict too and was happy with that choice.

Tables are quite close together and the noise level is high. It didn't bother me a great deal, just something to mentally prepare for.

We walked into a room full of tables scrunched together, and were told they were running behind on reservations. We were celebrating my husband’s birthday and when we arrived, I immediately regretted my selection. Once we got seated, a waitress made her way over 15 minutes later. We had to practically shout to hear each other. The food was good—however the experience, not so much. We will not be back and I would not recommend going here for a special occasion. Loud and a ton of people crammed into a small space. This could have possibly been a better experience if they removed some tables and didn’t try to pile in so many people at once. Lastly, the waitstaff seemed exhausted...and limited.

My entree was over spiced. I sent it back. After that the server ignored our table. No other entree was offered or suggested. We ordered dessert. We waited 15 minutes. Without dessert we had to leave for the theater. Server said the dessert takes 8 minutes to cook. Please tell me that at the time I order. 8 minutes is not 15 minutes.

Overall the place is like you’ve wandered into a PotteryBarn or Magnolia Farms set - it is gorgeous. BUT Sunday brunch, the place is so overpacked and noisy that the experience was a downer. Service was ok but I think too busy. I’ve been here at non peak times and that made the experience so much better. Plus it was really cold seated by the front door. Too bad there isn’t a buffer from the outside to protect those close to the door. I’m vegetarian and wish there were more options.

It's a lovely place and the food is fabulous but I would not recommend it unless you are willing to dine during off-peak hours -- and you have the patience of a saint. We made a reservation and arrived on time yet we had to wait 35 minutes to be seated by a semi-hostile, gum-snapping hostess. There is a very limited, awkward, high-traffic space in which to stand and wait. I counted at least two parties of four who were seated before our party of two, even though they arrived later than we did. Our server was charming but the service was chaotic and frustrating. Twice, other servers tried to deliver dishes we hadn't ordered. I had to plunder another table for silverware and a napkin. I received a box when I asked but someone whisked my plate away before I could fill it.

The biggest impression left by The Copper Hen was the noise level. I'm so tired of meeting a friend to chat and catch up, only to find myself half-shouting and asking over and over, "What"?
The restaurant is beautiful, but way too loud. The food was mediocre and rather uninspiring. The server rushed us from the minute we had our menus because there was a wedding party arriving for an event. I totally understand how tough the restaurant business is and the event rentals must be a great revenue boost. However, it definitely seems to be in conflict with creating a welcoming and satisfying dining experience for restaurant guests. Probably won't go back.

We loved our food and the atmosphere was awesome! We had a reservation though it was not needed as it was not too busy on a Tuesday evening. Our server was pleasant - not super attentive though. The table we were given was a bit strange, right in the middle of the room in front of the doors which was not good as it was very cold Tuesday night. Not sure why we would not have been given one of the other tables off to the side as there was plenty of room. Every time the door opened, we had a blast of cold air. Couldn't even take off our coats. We should have asked for a different table.......

The food and the service were great, but the tables are very close together. Also, it was very cold the day we were there and we were pretty close to the front door, so every time someone came in or left we got blasted with frigid air. They need to put a curtain up or something to block the cold air from the tables that are close to the door.

Was there on Friday, Dec. 29. Had a 5:30 p.m. reservation for a table of 5 (4 adults and a 3 yr. old), but the previous large group tables were slow in finishing up their meals, conversations and leaving. Several tables of 4 were available and around 6 p.m. I finally asked if we could just use a table set-up for 4. The staff were very apologetic about the wait (which was not their fault) and quickly set up a table for us. They understood we had 7 p.m. tickets for the Children's Theatre and quickly took our orders. We were able to have nice dinner and still make it to the show on time. The staff really did a great job, food was excellent and they even comped a couple drinks and went out of their way to make sure we had a good experience. Thank you to the staff at The Copper Hen for quickly adjusting and setting up a table for us!

The ambiance is nice. We went for Christmas Eve and were very excited to try. Unfortune for us, they kept running out items on the menu. They ran out of the duck, the short ribs, the Lobster appetizer and even lemons so they could make their drink of the evening! How did they not know they were going to be busy? Their reservations were full! We both ended up with scallops which were good, but we ran out of options! I will go back as the staff was good, and the foods was good. Just not for a holiday meal.

My son and I went for Christmas Eve, and had a wonderful time and great good. The servers were very attentive and friendly. It was a bit crowded and noisy, but it was Christmas Eve! My son said the burger was the best he's ever eaten, and I can say the same for the tomato soup and the chicken pot pie!!!!

Expected it to be busy since most places weren’t open for Christmas Eve (so thank you😑!) but with a lager party (9 people) it probably wasn’t the best place. Waited 45 minutes past our 7pm reservation time with no bar space/opportunity to grab a drink.

The food was good as always - the staff seemed a bit harried - it was busy and we didn't have silverware for a few of our courses. My husband was eating creme brulee with his steak knife and the server didn't notice (we only had one spoon). I would absolutely go back, however, the food and drinks are amazing.

Five of us in our family spent a lovely Christmas Eve at the Copper Hen. Of course it was lively and a little loud on that festive occasion, but we were seated promptly, and the drink and food came at a good pace. The food was delicious--each one of us had a beautiful plate of wonderful, fresh, well-seasoned food: yum to the chicken pie, the short rib, the crab toast, tomato soup with dill, burger, and scallops. We enjoyed the friendly upbeat serving staff.
