Yum. Seriously yum. The Dutch baby with cheese is ridiculous. The morel mushroom small plate was incredible. Everything was outstanding. Highly, highly recommended.
From out of town.
Found this restaurant on the internet. We were staying near the airport and flying out the next morning. The Inn was easy to find and close to the airport. Our first impression of the restaurant space was that it looked like a lodge, with tables to close together. May have had a different impression if it were night time and the usual Seattle rain. Definitely not a romantic space. I had a salad and Walu (Hawaiian fish) my wife had a salad and brisket. The salad was fresh greens, large, and nice dressing. The fish was excellent. The vegetables served with the fish were very good. My wife's brisket was stringy (more than usual). The vegetables served with the brisket seemed like they were pre-cooked. Some of the vegetables appeared to have been soaked in vinegar that gave them a unacceptable flavor. Desert was ice cream and was ver good. We were seated between two other couples in large chairs with cushions so you could get close to the table and eat. Although we did not interact with the "neighbors" we came away knowing them well. Know the business dealings on the left, and that we doubt there will be a second date on the right. All in all we thought the food was very good, not great. The atmosphere less than romantic. The price and little high for the experience. We had a better meal for the price in Seattle and in Portland on this trip. I would not return.
Staff always pleasant and easy going. Scenic & peaceful surroundings Menu thoughtfully prepared A must for monthly treats and summer evenings.
Great dining experience.
The food was very good and the choices were many. Something for everyone.
The menu was rather limited. It was difficult to make a selection from the offerings. Actually we would opt for the small plates offerings on a future visit. The steak , although very good was pretty chincy at 3 ounces and overpriced even though it was a top grade beef. The BBQ beef was well prepared for what it was. It just didn't seem to belong on this restaurant's menu. Extra complimentary touches were appreciated. Atmosphere indoors was very nice. Surprised at the number of outside diners on a somewhat cool early evening. Server was very pleasant and knowledgeable.

Piper was an excellent server, friendly and attentive without being intrusive. She was also very professional with the crazy picky eater at the table next to us. Had the tasting menu with wine pairing, it was all excellent. The Montimore Estate pinot gris was a particularly lovely wine. The only drawback was the postioning of the tables so close together there was hardly any privacy.
Very Creative Menu
Presentation of the meal is beautiful and service was friendly, although a bit slow. We did not mind because we set aside enough time. The food was good, not great, but with very creative ingredients and pairings. Dessert was wonderful. Fun treat at the beginning of the meal and then again at the end. It's a special touch but of course you pay for it. It's a pricey place but I'll probably go again in a year or so.

This was my 7th meal at the Copperleaf, and I'm still excited about the seasonal food & wine pairings that I get to try on every visit. The gingerbread toffee crumble cake with fromage blanc ice-cream was fantastic as was the carrot soup. The dinner companions enjoyed their meal as well with a delectable halibut on the 3rd course.

One of the best airport hotel restaurants. Very good regional food and wine list.
Nearly every item has several ingredients. Minuscule dishes that seemed almost contrived. I wish I had discovered the fish and chips but that on a separate menu. Adjoining table had it and it looked really good.
Excellent food with higher price
Small restaurant, small menu, very good waitstaff, very good food - seasonal & regional, changes periodically. I had very tasty antelope. Two in party had tremendous rabbit, one had a good salad. Foie gras was said to be good by those who liked it. Wait staff is usually very knowledgeable and attentive, though tonight (Mother's night) they were just Very Good, instead of the usual Outstanding. Prices are high, but no higher than other luxury type restaurants - $250 for 4 without liquor or wine. One of the best, regularly, in south King Co. with all the advantages - easy to get to, free parking, forested view; that you can't get downtown. 4th visit - we keep coming back for special occasions with different guests.
Eat here if Staying here . . .
Menu was a bit too eclectic/limited for a conference center. Took an very long time to get our food ., . and then our check . . With multiple large conferences on the premises at the same time, it seems logical that the service and menu would reflect that audience. It didn't.
What a hidden prize.
This is a surprising find near the airport. We used it to say goodbye before my friend left on a red eye. The purpose was to have her well-fed with an excellent bottle of wine and relax her onto the flight. This absolutely worked. The room is lovely, the wine list is thoughtful, the food lovingly procured and crafted. A wine paired special menu is available -- it looked like excellent value with a dramatically lovely menu. A shout out to Lauren for perfectly charming service. This is run by the entity that owns Sehmiahmoo. Classically and comfortably elegant.
Rare foodie destination in Seatac!
I've been here a few times, and every time I'm astounded we have such fine dining in SeaTac. I'd expect to go to Seattle for this kind of dining experience. The food is artistic, beautiful, and delicious. The service is excellent. The setting is lovely, a hidden delight mere blocks from the airport. I highly recommend Copperleaf!
This place is like dining in your own home. The sevice is great; food excellent. Best kept secret in Seattle!
best in South End & one of the best in Settle area
best formal restaurant in South End and one of the best in Seattle area. Recommend its sable fish with dungeness crab cannelloni, grilled scallops, elk. Donut hole and hot chocolate for dessert. Service and impeccable always. Compliments to management and service staff

I think they changed chefs--use to be great
I think they may have changed chefs. The food a year ago was excellent and worth going out of the way but after 2 dinners I must admit the food was just okay. Way too much salt in almost every dish I had for 2 evenings in a row. It is a great spot but the food missed the mark. Also, the portions are too large for a normal eater.

Great service with a bunch of extra courses for free along the way. Azing presentation. Great ambiance.
Excellent hotel with disappointing restaurant
While the Cedarbrook Lodge is like a breath of fresh air, the Copperleaf Restaurant is a disappointing puff of smoke. The ambiance is lovely and rustic and in line with the rest of the grounds, but the food is not special and overpriced. We have had 2 dinners there and both times have left unsatisfied. The service is fine and the wine list is satisfactory, but to put it simply, the food is not delicious. Perhaps it was our menu choices, and would consider trying it again; but at this point I would give the food a 1/10 which brings the overall restaurant rating (by me - not a critic) down.

As usual, the staff at lodge/restaurant are marvelois. The warmth and ease of the staff is why I will always return with friends. They plan for every need of their client

We went for a special girls night ~ all three of us had tasting menus, two of us had the Feb menu and I had the normal tasting all with 3-4oz wine pairings. All of the dishes - except the amuse - were mediocre at best. Spending $550 for this meal - I would expect foods that were elevated in flavor - to take me on a great food experience --- all were bland - the main dish cold and incredibly small portioned. (One slice of chicken, barely able to be cut through with a knife) I've done several tasting menus - Canlis, Herb Farm, even a prior Copperleaf tasting, etc... And understand the expense, this however was nowhere near- not even close - worth the huge expense..... Left us all underwhelmed and disappointed.

I am always reluctant to recommend the Copperleaf as once visited you will be smitten, I fear that this fine establishment will revive the old "Yogism, "No one goes there any more it is too crowded". Howeve this hidden jewel is too good not to share. World Class for dinner and a tremendous value for lunch it remains my first choice for impressing my guests.
An early Valentine's Dinner
This is our second Valentine's celebration spending the night at the Cedarbrook Lodge and absolutely enjoying the chef select dinner with wine pairings at the Copperleaf. We were not disappointed and had a fantastic dinner! Definitely is one of our favorite "date night" restaurants.
The setting of the Cedarbrook Lodge is beautiful. The dining area is spacious with a cozy fireplace on one end. The food was absolutely superior. Even the vegetables were comment worthy. The only negative was we were offered sparkling or still water upon arrival. We weren't told there was a charge for sparkling. When the bill came we were charged $7 for the sparkling water. I didn't dispute it, but won't order it again.
Overall great experience
The restaurant is in a nice lodge and has a scenic view and an open lounge type setting. Staff was extremely friendly.
We ate here for the second time on February 6th before a flight. The food was quite good (squash salad, champagne poached Apple salad, chicken and sablefish) though it could have come out hotter (a pet peeve of mine). Also, the tables are very close together so forget any private conversation, which was a bit of a problem for us as we were exchanging 30th anniversary gifts. The waitress seemed programmed and completely ignored the obvious fact we were celebrating something. We do not seek or care about "free stuff" when we are celebrating something at a restaurant but a simple oral acknowledgement would have been appropriate. In spite of this, the food is very well prepared and we will likely return.
We had a wonderful time.
The food was prepared prefectly. The wine recommendation was spot on. The setting is very nice.
we continue to enjoy Copperleaf
Expensive but exceptional. We enjoy it on when we are out of town. It's too far to be a local, regular restaurant...and a bit to pricey.
Beautiful restaurant! Wonderful food and service!
We enjoyed our romantic wedding anniversary dinner here. From the appetizers, small plates, entrees, to the dessert, everything was so well prepared with much attention to detail! The ingredients used were noticeably fresh and prepared just right. Excellent wine selection too(especially for pairings). The waitstaff, very knowledgeable, friendly, warm, yet professional. Certainly worth the drive from Seattle! If you're at SeaTac airport and have a layover or just arrived home from a trip, it's a short ride to have a nice meal here!
Always good! That's why I Keep coming back!
This is the best restaurant in the south end for fine dining. It's so nice not to drive into Seattle for a good experience eating out. I use it for special occasions to take family and friends. I love the ambience, quietness of the restaurant & surroundings, food and drinks. We also chose it for our Thanksgiving dinner this past November.
Excellent place to eat
The food was beautifully presented and tasted wonderful! Special little touches at the start of the meal and the end of the meal added to the experience.

The vegetables were over cooked and the food was lukewarm. There was nothing special about the flavors.
Excellent for special occasions
We've been going to the Copper leaf as special occasion destination since they opened a day have never been disappointed.
A Good Note to end 2015!
Always a dining destination that delivers each season's offering into a truly wonderful culinary experience. What stood out? My first taste of Kuroge Washu beef - it was like enjoying a plate of beefy 'foie gras'. Service is always on their mind. Even though one of us had the tasting meal and I did not, the chef added a complimentary Parsnip creme to my dinner which was totally unexpected. Kudos to the chef!
