My new favorite restaurant! Came here for restaurant week and will be back. From the food, to the impeccable service, to the overall ambiance - this is one of the best hidden gems in the city.

Each time we eat dinner at Copper Hen we are so glad we ate there. The cocktails are great, the wine list is nice, and the food is wonderful! Don’t forget to save room for a lovely cupcake.
So glad they are here in Minneapolis.❤️

Everything was wonderful. We moved tables because the ceiling fan was a bit drafty and cold. But everything was wonderful. Every time we go it is an exceptional experience.

Bland, under seasoned, poorly presented food that was seriously overpriced. Service and ambiance were both great. Too bad the food didn’t live up to the reputation.

The waiters were friendly and the ambiance was great. We were really excited and the food looked good when it came out but when we started eating, we couldn’t figure out what was wrong with the food. The eggs Benedict could not be cut through with a knife and and the English muffin was super stale. Both of our potatoes too were either super stale or burned. They were so hard you couldn’t stab it with a fork or barely chew it without breaking a tooth. The English muffin for the eggs Benedict tasted like it was dusted off from last Christmas. We did not complain because our waiter and hostess were great and friendly and we still left him a tip. It wasn’t his fault that all the food was stale/old/burned. Yucky. The decor is great but even the bakery case didn’t nearly compare to old customer photos online… everything in the case looked like it was from the day before

I've had The Copper Hen a few times and have enjoyed it every visit. The food is delicious!
It is a very popular spot, which isn't surprising, but that does mean a little bit of a louder environment. Would highly recommend a reservation.

Love the look of the place and we like a lively noise level but it was off the charts noisy in there yesterday. We absolutely could not hear each other talk next to a person or across the table. It was tough. Eggs Benedict, yolks not runny as they should be and we could not cut the muffin to eat the dish. I mean we had to try and saw through it several times. Not a great experience.

Always amazing food, cocktails, and service. The main room can get loud during peak hours, so be prepared for that. They have an expansion into a second room that is far more quiet, so if you dislike an energetic atmosphere, try to get a table in the back room to enjoy the amazing food while keeping the volume down.

HORRIBLE SERVICE.
Took an hour to get food and our table (with Mexican people) and another table with an Asian family were the ones being bumped for an hour. Everybody else was getting their food no problem.
Our waitress was not knowledgeable of food items when we asked for recommendations, constantly walked away when I was talking and rudely kept asking what, what to whatever I was saying.
Manager came up with the lamest excuse saying we ordered the Father’s Day Specials that’s why it took so long. They should have explained that when we ordered or at one of the several times we inquired about what was taking so long.
Worst Father’s Day experience for my hubby. Will never return, food is overrated too.

The Copper Hen is a fun restaurant and bar, however, the brunch food was mediocre coming late and lukewarm. The hash browns had little flavor. The wine was flat. Tap lines on the beer had not been cleaned. The one positive was service - very attentive and friendly.

Great service. Food was good overall. French toast was a bit mushy. We tried to sit inside but it was way too loud. So they were very accommodating to move us outside. Overall it was great and I would definitely go back.

After reading other reviews, we were honestly surprised how mediocre the meal was. The restaurant itself is cute, and the rhubarb/strawberry pie was very good, but otherwise, the experience was not memorable. Our server was clearly off last night, which didn't help matters, as she wasn't very attentive or helpful about the menu or really anything else. Food-wise, we had the hot chicken sandwich (definitely not hot, and missing almost anything, flavor wise, as were the home fries that were the side) and the paella, which had all the pieces to be a good dish, but just wasn't seasoned much at all. Overall, the theory behind farm to table comfort food is good, but we were really disappointed in the complete lack of seasoning in our meals. At the price ($100 for 2 with only 1 drink each), I expect something much more than "not too bad".

I reserved a table there for a party of 6 on Saturday morning. We were all pleasantly surprised by the lovely atmosphere and breakfast options. We were going to sit inside but it being so nice, the host and other servers accommodated us outside. The host and indoor servers were quite amazing. Such positive energy and great service! Our server outside was great, good with refilling our drinks and splitting our bill and timing things . Love the food and the friendly host and servers! Food was amazing--especially the bottomless mimosas (a lovely surprise)! I know I will definitely be coming back!

Service was great, drinks work so unique and flavorful. That was high end lemonade. Very good honey based old fashion. Flavors of the food were excellent. Macaroni and cheese was amazing. We loved the hamburger and the steak. The fried chicken sandwich was good. The desserts were awesome especially the skillet cookie.

Great prompt service, food came out within 15 minutes or so. The bottomless mimosas were truly bottomless, we were never left wanting. Great quiche of the day. Can't wait to go back!
