Copperwood Tavern Ratings and Reviews
I loved my food so did everyone at the table. They will not modify the menu what so ever. I Rekay really wanted chicken an fresh toast I wanted to sub that for the waffle. The Cheif refused so I ordered it seperately which was almost twice the price. Server was great. They should change the sauce for the fried green tomatoes asap for someone from the south things like that has to be perfect. Overall I will return.
This place is very disappointing. I ordered a $33 entre (Duck) which was served without any accompaniment, no bread, no other starch, no vegetable however small. That is a disgrace. The duck itself was not tender. They did offer to get me something else, but I declined. I will never return.
We thought the food was great,starting with the very clever popcorn,flavored with a spicy barbecue style rub. Great surprise and I'm not usually a big fan of flavored popcorn. Had the pulled pork and again was very pleased. One of the best pulled pork sandwiches in some time. My husband had a breakfast steak and eggs. Yummy.
Service was fun,fast and just the right amount of chatty
Visiting the area and picked restaurant according to OpenTable comments and rating. Food was nice, everyday American fare. Service was excellent, especially the server for our table. Management was very helpful too. Overall an extremely pleasant experience.
I have visited copperwood 6 times before this visit. Food was excellent as usual. During the service the waiter dropped drinks all over me and another guest at table. I understand mistakes happen, what got under my skin was they thought $10 gift card they gave us. We appreciated the drinks being taken off the bill.
I had a gift card to this restaurant. I was a little nervous when I sat down and looked at the menu ( deviled duck eggs and venison meatballs??) BUT, I was pleasantly surprised at the wonderful meal we had. My mother said the filet mignon was most tender she had ever eaten, and my pork chop was to die for! It was a little chilly inside, but that was the only complaint. I loved the Shirlington location and was happy to see patrons dining with their pets outside. I will gladly come back to this place.
Copperwood tavern never dissappoints! I most recently took my parents there when they were visiting from out of town, and they were immediately sold by the atmosphere and music. The food and service was amazing as always, and my mother said it was the best filet she's ever had! They went on for days about how impressed they were with the entire experience (and my parents can often be hard to please). Two thumbs up!
I really like this place! So much so, that I've been here several times. There are few restaurants here in the DMV I frequent and this is one of the few because of the quality food and the good service. Whether the venison meatballs, the ribeye, or the Brussels sprouts, Copperwood never disappoints.
Likewise, the service is consistently good. The staff are both highly knowledgeable and professional.
My wife and I found ourselves in Shirlington later than we'd anticipated, and used Open Table to find a place to enjoy dinner. Were intrigued by Copperwood Tavern's take on "farm to table," and gave it a try. We enjoyed the taste of our meal (grilled pork chop, brussel sprouts, and mashed potatoes) even though their medium rare was definitely well done. Portions are HUGE, but everything else didn't really justify their price point. We opted to eat outside since country music was blaring too loud for conversation indoors. The service was okay, but not what you'd expect in the DC Metro area. Fortunately there's several other places in Shirlington to try next time!
Had a wonderful birthday brunch on 7/30! The food was delicious and our waitress Mariya was warm, friendly and the absolute best. Food was definitely farm to table fresh. For my party the omelet, pancakes and benedict were all great. My mom also enjoyed the breakfast plate with meat eggs and toast. We will definitely return for more in the future!
I had eyed this restaurant for a while for lunch however; I went for brunch and I should have waited. The brunch is not that great. The food is cute to look at but the execution is not that good. The french toast sticks did not taste like french toast at all. They tasted like toast and the plating was different so it was more a look than flavor. I may return but I will go for lunch or dinner..I will avoid the brunch....disappointing.
Met friends to catch up, and it was pleasant enough to sit outdoors. Our waiter was attentive and patient at explaining menu items, plus facilitated moving us to another less sunny table once it was vacated since it was quite hot in the direct sun. I was happy to see that the restaurant offers Virginia wines and beers, plus they list the farm sources for their menu items. Some I question, such as rockfish from Pennsylvania - really?? The prices are a bit steep, especially as sides are a la carte, but probably no worse than many Arlington restaurants. My one complaint was that our entrees arrived before we were done with our starters, one of my pet peeves. When I mentioned to the waiter that this should not happen (and it was challenging, as our table was small) his response was that he had to estimate when we would be done. Hmm, real service manages this, and we had already said we were not in a rush. Otherwise, service was good and food was tasty, but I didn't find anything really outstanding or unique about this place. Would tell friends that it is acceptable depending on what they are looking for. I think perhaps they are a better draw for folks who enjoy craft beer, but we are not beer drinkers - just wine lovers. I would go back for a drink at the outdoor patio, but probably not for dinner.
The food was very good, but the service was fair to poor. The appetizer came right away, which was fine, but the entrees came a few minutes later (and the mussels were already cold indicating they were being held in the kitchen) The restaurant was not even at half capacity, so this was clearly a case of the waiter either not knowing when to put in the order, or trying to turn over the table as quickly as possible. I would return (the mussels, though cold, were very tasty), but I would instruct the waitstaff very carefully how they should do their job because management has clearly not done so.
Sat outside which was pleasant and service was good. Had salmon and rockfish entres. Very good but a little expensive. Salmon was under seasoned. The strawberry cake was excellent. We shared a salad and the cake; staff was very accommodating to our requests.
