Copperwood Tavern Ratings and Reviews
Fabulous food! Great service and wonderful ambience. The wait staff was attentive but not pushy and took very good care of me and my girl. The food was PHENOMENAL! It was superbly prepared and delicious. I would recommend that everyone try it at least once. You won't regret it!
The Valentine's Day Special meal of filet mignon and lobster tail was delicious and decadent. The mussels are amazing every single time. The chocolate mousse was a special treat. The wine paired well with everything. The service is always great. This is one of our family's favorite neighborhood restaurants.
The food, drinks, ambiance, and service were great! We were seated promptly, and got our locally sourced drinks and appetizer within minutes.the deviled duck eggs with bacon were delicious! We each got an entree, which was plenty after the appetizer. The service was great - the food and drinks came out quickly, and all members of the staff were friendly and attentive.
We had a great meal with interesting choices for light healthy eaters. Loved the grilled Brussels sprouts and the Farmers Salad plus spaghetti squash. Three diners and we all were pleased with food and our very professional server who greeted us and was attentive without being intrusive-- perfect! Valentines Day was made more special with individual roses and a $10 gift card for a return visit.
Very nice neighborhood spot. Like the farm to table feature. Enjoyable brunch menu offerings and the beverage features. Strongly suggest a reservation for brunch as walkups were notified of a significant wait for seating. We plan to return to try the regular lunch menu as it looked very appealing.
Overall a good dining experience for brunch. The food was above average and my waiter's service was excellent. I gave it a four for two reasons. First, while my waiter was terrific, as with many restaurants they haven't mastered how to treat single diners. For example, at one point they brought out complementary popcorn to every table except for mine, the only single diner table. On a different occasion in the fall, I was seated but not waited on for between 5 and 10 minutes (even for a drink order) which gave me time to decide I wasn't in the mood for their food. I left...don't know when I would have been waited on. Second, I love the trend for more fat in food but it can cross the line to too greasy. The eggs Benedict with smoked salmon was spot on but the potatoes were on the line and the fried green tomatoes while delicious crossed the line into too greasy. That said, I brought home leftovers of both for later. Overall a solid 4.
We returned for the second time which is really unusual for us.
But we remembered how awesome the food was there
The service was outstanding
Great restaurant good service,complimentary cornbread and butter
The menu is not the biggest therefore every dish is awesome and delish
Great food and service. Have only been for brunch and have not been disappointed. Even when crowded and without a reservation we got a table quickly. Also had a reservation and was seated quickly. A reservation may be the way to go during peak hours. Food is delicious. The st. germain mimosa is a party in your mouth. I look forward to going for dinner.
Requested a booth or table not directly on top of other diners, unfortunately our setting ended up right on top of two tables beside us, and my wife had to sit against the window on a flat bench. Not very comfortable, particularly after I put the request in ahead of time with our reservation. Appears much of the 2 person seating is this same arrangement.
Food was good, but felt that both meals were very heavy on the garlic and oil to the point that it overwhelmed the food (squash and chicken entrees). The sides were pretty good. Overall, fairly expensive for the experience that involved trying to have a conversation above the ambient noise levels.
This was our first visit, and it was quite disappointing. The first-course salad was billed as "kale and Caesar" but it was only brownish, old lettuce with a crouton on top. The crab cakes were not cooked all the way through. The restaurant was bustling and we needed to get to a movie, so I did not take time to send any food back. The server had too many tables and was not very attentive. He never asked why I was not eating my food or if I was enjoying it.
I have brought many people to eat at Copperwood Tavern - usually pre-theatre @ Signature Theatre. They feature farm to table food and handcrafted cocktails with their own simple syrups and infused liquors. Love it! The salads are amazing and are a meal in and of themselves!
We love Copperwood. I think this was my 3rd time here in 1 month! Twice with my husband for dinner and once with a girlfriend for appetizers & a drink. I love the option of being able to sit in the bar area or dining area. The food and drinks (my husband loves the beer, i love the wine selection) are really great. We love coming here, especially since we can walk from our apartment in ParkFairFax! And I also love the convenience of booking through opentable, I never have an issue getting a reservation.
My husband and I stopped by for the first time for a much-needed afternoon together before a movie. We enjoyed our time there and everyone was friendly. The popcorn was to die for and my husband remarked he would have loved some to enjoy at home. This was the first time he enjoyed popcorn that was not dripping in butter. We will definitely be back!
Very cool space. We were very happy when we walked in. We were there for brunch. I ordered the duck deviled eggs -- $8. They sounded great. The "duck" aspect of them was a sprinkling of shredded duck confit(?) on each egg. There were four -- no problem -- it's an appetizer. There was a half piece of really good bacon with each egg. It was ok, not great. Not enough duck. My wife ordered a breakfast sandwich and asked for egg to be cooked over easy -- it came over hard. We have had this problem a LOT lately in too many restaurants. If you can't cook an egg properly, you shouldn't be in the kitchen. Basics. I ordered the chicken and waffles. It came with very little syrup -- I don't like a lot, but it was pretty dry. It was good, but a suggestion would be to put some on the waffle and provide a ramekin with extra. A busser got a little extra for me. We paid somewhere around $50 for the meal and it was just less than good. Frustrating.
The birthday card you send me with the certificate inside made me notice how much you value your customers. I have NEVER had a restaurant do this for me. This was very special. When I came in for New Years eve brunch the food was fabulous. The homemade Marshmallow on my specialized coffee drink was impressive. I especially like the crab benedict, as I do not eat pork.
I love the beautiful hand stencil dogs on the wall, the re-purposing of the great things all over the restaurant. The thought out sink at least in the ladies room, I love this, no dripping all over the sink top , we women hate our purses getting wet from people not wiping up after they wash.
The friendliness of the staff, easy to make a reservation online and the reminder also. The beginning cup of popcorn with your "special seasoning" was so unique when you sit down, better then a basket of bread. The french toast sticks, so if you have a taste for the sweet, but also want eggs. It satisfies the craving, then your not trying to decide between the two. Love drinking out of the mason jars, reminds me of the country. Overall experience is a 10, posting pictures to my page for my friends locally. See you all soon!!
Pre-theater New Years Eve. No mention of pre-fixe menu at booking but not really a surprise considering the night. Good value on the pre-fixe. Paid the corkage and brought an expensive wine with us but their list looked good. Had to send both entrees back for extra cooking but to be fair we asked for medium rare and every place measures that differently -- we'll gauge it better next time. Both dishes were returned quickly cooked a little more and were very good.
