I’ve had way better meals at copper hen. This particular time was pretty bad. Poor service and mediocre food.

We’ve gone twice together and the food and service were amazing both times. Definitely coming back for a date night. Having more than 1 or 2 Gluten free options, AND them being delicious, is really what tips it over the edge for me.

The Copper Hen is one of my favorite restaurants in the Twin Cities, both for the ambiance and the food. As always the staff was incredibly friendly and the food was fabulous.

I have loved coming to Copper Hen since they have opened. It's always been amazing from abuance to food. This past weekend I came on a saturday morning for breakfast. Food was so bad, I could not get through half on my meal. My friends had a similar experience. It was not good. We left hungry and disappointed.

Loved the vibe. It was great food and even with the longer wait times, we had a engaging experience. The staff are all so friendly and professional. We were especially glad to be there with our young adult children as it was their first time at Copper Hen.

We needed to get out for a date night. My fiancé had never been here so a perfect excuse to get out of the house.
To start, he had the prawns. He said they were incredible. I had the rack of lamb. Perfection. He had the steak, it was super tender- could have used a little salt added to the seasoning, but the mashed potatoes and asparagus were great as well.
Our server Molly was great, fellow Chicagoan! Excellent night out.

We went for brunch for the first time on a Sunday. The building is is nice, but because it's an older space refurbished for the restaurant, the metal ceiling and the hardwood floor, combined with the large glass windows made for a very loud atmosphere. As lovely as the restaurant is, the noise was pretty intense. Our waitress was very nice and did a fine job. The food, although it took a while for it to get to us, (to be fair, it was very busy), was excellent. Very fresh with some creative combinations, and it was also very filling.
Overall we liked the food and the place, but would probably come again at a quieter time to enjoy it even more.

Had a group of 5 to celebrate a birthday. Service was great, food was amazing as always. The only reason 4 starts is it was so loud we couldn’t even talk to each other. They really need some sound tiles or something to help tone it down.

Mac n cheese was really good. Lamb was amazing, but I was left hungry. Needed to have couscous or a mash potato under it. I would definitely eat there again.

We were visiting from out of town and got lost a few times, which made us super late for our brunch reservation. Even though the kitchen was about to close, the restaurant was super super accommodating and welcoming when we arrived 5 minutes before the kitchen closing. The food, the service, and the restaurant vibe were excellent and I am glad they were able to serve us.

Definitely coming back to this place on my next trip and I highly recommend it.

Ambiance and service are excellent. My mother’s order came out wrong twice and the over easy eggs were over-hard for everyone at the table but the server was kind about bringing new ones. We enjoyed our time.

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.
