The Copper Hen Ratings and Reviews
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!!!!
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.
Had a reservation and it still took at least 45 minutes to be seated. The restaurant was crowded (too many tables in a small space) and very loud. We watched as other guests were moved to different tables after being seated.
Otherwise, the food was delicious.
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.
Most of the food was great, but The Farmers 3 course dinner had many things wrong with it. First it came out with greens not farmer frys like the menu stated. The steak was ordered medium, when it came out it was smaller then expected and had too much char. It was cooked to a proper medium and had a good amount of moisture but was extremely chewy and flavorless. All that you could taste was the blue cheese that was severed atop the steak (not listed on the menu) and the char. To top it off we saw 3 other steaks served after us that were twice the size. We did however notice that others were having difficulty chewing their steaks as well.
We never informed the staff, partially because we did not see our server (after an initial check back, which happened before we had tasted the food) until most of the other meals were finished. Also this was a special occasion and the person that ordered the steak didn't want to make everyone wait for a replacement.
Service was ok. It took a very long time to get our dessert course and to finalize our check, which was not a good last impression on our night.
Despite having reservations, we waited for 10 minutes and another 10 for a server. Food was above average and decor is charming. Noise level was fairly high but nice energy. Server spilled a container of sauce on one of our guests pants. A little surprised to not be offered a drink or desert (common practice). After I called ahead to request service for our vegan daughter, I was told that the chef would make something special. When she ordered, she asked for “chefs choice”. 5 minutes later a different server came back to talk to her and said they could make her one of the pizzas without cheese - so disappointing.
Our first time here, very busy place, glad to have parking available across the street. We had reservations, and they had a table prepared for us when we arrived. Chris was our server and he was terrific; attentive, but not overbearing. Three in our party all loved the brunch dishes and cocktails ordered. The "energetic" noise level made it difficult to have an easy discussion at our table, though. The "check" for our brunch was a sheet of paper with a total dollar amount only, no other information. Hard to tell what we were paying for and if the tip had been included. Not cool.
We love coming to CH! The neighborhood is super quaint, and this gem of a restaurant fits in perfectly. We are never disappointed with service, food, or drinks, and have left happy and full each time we've visited. Just one tip--be sure to make reservations! Their turnover is quick but the place is always full :)
While the food was delicious the service was quite slow. We waited quite a while for our server to even ask for our drink order and I noticed at least 1 other table that wasn't getting prompt attention. The server was very apologetic and kind, but this same slow service happened to me 2 years ago, the first time I went to this restaurant. I recommend the food, but they need to work on better service.
