The wood-grilled steak salad is always the BEST. Our server was fabulous--very kind and professional. The manager was so kind as to lower the music because our party has a hard time hearing.
Hope you never discontinue that salad!

Just a tad noisy - a couple of small children ages 3 to 7 got loose and wandered a bit - that was the only downside - and it was brief. Otherwise - nice lunch and relaxing. Being lunch I did not try any adult beverages, so I can't comment on any bar favorites.

The food looks better then it tastes. The service was great , i never had to ask for a refill because they were constantly around and refilled when they saw your drink was close to empty. But I much rather go to olive garden to eat a much more tasteful meal and save some money then spend money on something not so enjoyable.

Service was outstanding. Our waiter was fully aware of the preparation of food and extremely prompt in returning filling drinks, asking if everything OK, very good attitude - up and happy. The food was so very fresh, tasty and portions are extremely accommodating a healthy appetite. Loved it!!

Smoked salmon was outstanding. Cooked medium to medium well, it was done enough yet still moist and the flavor was wonderful. Spinach and orzo-rice that came with it were complementary. A glass of Sauvignon Blanc went perfectly with it.

We talked to the manager that night and the general manager the next day. They have a longstanding menu item called Shrimp Cargot. As a Woodfire Club loyalty member, I've ordered it many times in the last 8 or so years we've been going there, including last night. It is served in an escargot dish, each hole with a mushroom and a shrimp cut in two, and then topped with melted gruyere cheese. Last night, it was served with no mushrooms and a much cheaper yellowish colored cheese. New staff were trying to tell me, "that's the way we make it". No, you don't. Whoever changed the prep and kept the same name shouldn't be in the restaurant business. They voluntarily didn't bring a bill to the table, though we did share an appetizer and my husband had a salad, and yet that wasn't the point. We tipped the server, but continued to have the bad taste in our mouth about a restaurant that would "bait and switch" like that.

Service is rushed with apps and salad coming together and entrees before the apps could be finished. Veal porterhouse was undercooked and extremely tough. All in all not was an "OK" meal, not horrible and not good. Best item was calimari.

I don't come to copper canyon often, but when I do I always leave happy. The restaurant has a beautiful aura with the dim candle lit interior, as well as an amazing staff. The food is rather expensive, but well worth the price. Try the shrimp cargot! It's my personal favorite on the menu.

Second time guest. Food is great, service is good, but the noise level is pretty high. First time we were seated near the front door and it was better. This time we were seated near the kitchen despite our request for Closer to the door. I would not stay next time if we had to sit there. The noise was so bad we couldn't hold a decent conversation. Food is great though!!!!

We've been to Copper Canyon a number of times, but we made a mistake in requesting the patio on a Friday evening. The noise at the bar made it impossible to hear anything. The food was ok, but at the prices that are charged, it could have been better. The service was excellent.

Tasty food very well prepared, with excellent service by our waiter. Our reservation was honored immediately and we were seated in the open area over-looking the lake and carousel. Each item was delicious, and it is certainly a restaurant to which we shall return.

My family and I had dinner at Copper Canyon Grill in Gaithersburg on Friday, Sept. 23, 2016. The service was great. Matthew, our server was on top of things. It was Friday night and very busy but it didn't show. We didn't have to wait long for our food, our empty dishes or empty glass of wine never lingered long on our table. Everything was great. Matthew was amazing

Overall good food, service was excellent, atmosphere was vibrant. I do think it's not a great value.
I was disappointed that on the Open Table reservation I indicated that we were celebrating a birthday and wanted outdoor seating. I also specifically provided my phone number. When we arrived we were told that it wasn't possible to reserve outdoor seating. That being said, I wish someone called me to inform me of this. Also, there was no mention of the fact that we were celebrating a reservation. So, not sure why on the Open Table form there is a place for additional information if the restaurant either doesn't see the information or ignores it.

The food was good and the service was great! It was a little noisy, so hard to talk to the person next to me, but overall a good atmosphere for dinner. While the menu was a little pricey for what we were looking for, the food was good enough to justify the expense. I would go again and recommend it to others.

I have always loved their ribs. Tender, juicy, fall of the bone. But this time they tasted dry, as if they were cooked a day or two earlier and left in the oven too long. My husband however enjoyed the meatloaf and the portion was quite large. It is a bit spicy though. Also the service was not as attentive as in the past. We were not offered bread and did not have an opportunity to ask for it when we realized that we didn't get any. It was quiet because we sat outside.

This is my 4th time eating at a Copper Canyon, and it's still not a disappointment at all! My favorite dish there is the Chicken Pot Pie. Delicious, excellent flavors, LOTS of chicken. The burgers here are also excellent, and the wait staff is top notch.

Date night and had only an hour before the movie started. Told the wait and the meatloaf and rotesserie chicken were our first pics. Waitress said this were really quick meals. It seemed like she had barely enough time to walk to the kitchen before our meals arrived hot and tasty. The chicken was moist and the meatloaf was great, but was pretty spicy (which hubby loves). The veggies were fantastic. Only critic the food was a bit salty for us. We even had time for dessert! Wonderful l, attentive staff and delicious hot food. Loved it!

I've been to the Copper Canyon Grill in Silver Spring and had a much better experience as far as food and service. I found the food subpar for the price, and even though I called ahead to reserve a table, we were seated inside. Since we could see that there were plenty of seats in the outdoor seating area, we asked to sit outside but the hostess just said "I don't make these decisions" and we decided for her that we would sit outside. I wasn't sure if she was new and untrained, or if our moving tables was actually an issue -- it was just really awkward, and she wasn't very accommodating. On top of that, I had put in a note that it was my husband's birthday, which was pointless because there was nothing mentioned or done to celebrate it -- which is something of the norm at most other restaurants to at least bring by a dessert or something. Great location and view, but my husband and I sadly agreed that we don't see any reason to go back.

Waiter was absolutely superb. In fact, I have never had a better waiter. He was attentive while letting us eat without much interruption. Also, the people who bused the table were prompt, timely, and polite. The evening was a real pleasure. Lastly, had a great view of the water even though we were inside. Very much enjoyed the food!

They missed our reservation by 30 minutes - repeatedly saying that we would be seated in just a moment (in all fairness, they were extremely busy). We were offered free appetizers as an apology, which we appreciated. We ordered IPAs, but what came out did not taste like an IPA. The manager explained that there was something wrong with the keg, and as a result they provided multiple free beers instead. We had several servers checking on us, we suspect since we weren't complaining about any of the missteps but the manager was trying to ensure we remained 'happy'. Our meals were enjoyable, and in the end the manager thanked us for our patience with a gift certificate for a future visit. While there were a number of missteps, the staff did respond well and saved our experience. We'd visit again.

We celebrated our 5 year old granddaughter's birthday at Copper Canyon. When we arrived, I asked the manager if they had chocolate ice cream. He said they did not. He saw my disappointment because my granddaughter only eats chocolate ice cream. He told me not to worry, that he would have it for her by the time she was ready.
He presented her with a huge scoop of chocolate ice cream. She was thrilled!
The service and attention to the customer is outstanding. We had a great experience!!

Was very disappointed in my meal. I had chicken pot pie only which was entirely too spicy with some hot spice throughout it. Never have had chicken pot pie with a hot spice in it - which, I might add, did not specify same on their menu. For $17 I could have stayed home and put 3 Marie Callenders pot pie, which I might add, are 10 times better, into the Microwave. My dining partner said her meal (I believe a steak, mashed potatoes & green beans) wasn't cooked fully, so she ate very little of it). I was highly embarrassed as I had been to Copper Canyon once before and highly recommended it.

Service and Food never disappoints. We were seated by the window which faces the The Rio. It enables people watching for Pokemon and provides enjoyable outdoor atmosphere while being comfortably seated in doors with air conditioning.
Advise staff of my allergens and they advise me of the obvious food choices to steer clear. They also advise other food I should not eat because they are prepared in the same area. VERY helpful.
I had the salmon with orzo and sauteed spinach. Delicious. My sister had the fried fish with fries.
My only grievance was dessert. I had pineapple upside down cake but it was a yellow cake with pineapple compote. Expected more pineapple flavor infused in the cake. The ice cream was homemade and tasty.
It is one of my favorite places to visit while in the area.
