Copperleaf Restaurant at Cedarbrook Lodge Ratings and Reviews
I have been going to Seattle for over th ...
I have been going to Seattle for over thirty years for business and only just found Copperleaf by using OpenTable while staying at the Doubletree Airport. The cuisine and portions were worthy of a restaurant in France, that good. I convinced two of my colleagues to join me and while one was not impressed with the small portions, the other and I were. The halibut was wild caught and fresh, and served so nicely on the plate. All in all, since I normally stay near the airport, I will definitely be back to Copperleaf every time I visit!! And one more thing, ask for Piper as a server, she was fun and knew what she was doing with the wines and the conversation, I hope we tipped her in excess! She was great.

This was our most recent visit to the Copperleaf -- my friends and I have frequently visited for lunch. The service is always excellent and the servers most helpful and pleasant; the food is exceptionally good. The restaurant has a wonderful decor and ambiance; the fireplace is cozy, the view of the gardens is very relaxing and peaceful. And one of the best things: it is quiet. A great place to talk with your dining partners.
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.
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 ...
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.
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!
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.
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.

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.
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.
