Copperwood Tavern Ratings and Reviews

I, my wife and another couple were dining here for the first time. Service was excellent. Food was good, but not noteworthy. I had the filet and my wife had the trout. We both enjoyed them, but not enough to hurry back. Our dessert (homemade strawberry ice cream) was disppointing; not creamy, and the frozen chunks of strawberries were tasteless. Since everything is a la carte, you will probably end up spending more than you would at other casual dining restaurants. $244 for the four of us, including alcohol and tip.

Not impressed with the food or service tonight. We normally like Copper Wood tavern but are thinking we will have to try other places. Way to expensive for the Quality of food we were served tonight as well as the service.. Not happy!

Love the atmosphere here! The cocktails are amazing and the service has always been great. Unfortunately, my husband and I don't eat beef or pork and that leaves the menu options extremely slim. However, the mac & cheese is quite tasty! Drinks and mac & cheese for us!

My fiancé and I came here to celebrate achieving my masters degree. This place was awesome as always. This was the first time we came for brunch and we did not leave disappointed or hungry. We tried oysters for the first time and the portions for brunch were perfect! The service was great and the mimosas-not sure if the OJ was fresh but it was sweet and complimented the champagne well. Will definitely be back again!!

I have been here several times for lunch and have enjoyed the food and friendly staff. Dinner food was not not up to par with lunch food I have had here. While my husband enjoyed the fish ,my mussels were very small and overpowered by blue cheese . I am unsure why" starters" or appetizers are severed alongside the entree. It makes for tight spacing on small tables and most people I believe prefer to have them arrive prior to the main course.

Great service from Kevin. Deviled egg appetizer, wine by glass, short rib entree and chocolate cake like dessert were good. Pecan crusted trout while edible was bland and overwhelmed by butter. Fried brussel sprouts were dissapointing. Suggest younger vegetable be used in addition to preparing under a broiler.

Although a bit too noisy we were able to have a conversation and hear each other. Our friends from out of town loved the restaurant and look forward to going again during their next visit. The farm to table menu makes for fresh, healthy and delicious options. The local rockfish was superb as was the veggie sides of asparagus and Brussels spouts. Our friends particularly liked the frites and we all enjoyed the peach cobbler. Copperwood is our favorite pre theater stop.

Its nice. I would probably check out other places tho. We had a party of 6 for brunch and ordered 7 main dishes and 3 apps. The only dish I loved was the baked oyster dish. Nothing else really captured my interest.

We had a simple dinner of steak, crab cakes, asparagus and a starter. The steak was WAY under done and the bill was north of $100. I do not mind paying good money for good food but I mind spending $100 for a meal that was not worth it. We will not be going back.

The place was pretty quiet when my wife, 8 month old and I arrived for an impromptu date night while the little one slept. The waiter was great. Wonderful drink recommendations. Service was great. Food was amazing. Will definitely go again.

we recently ate at Copperwood for lunch and decided to give their Brunch a chance. Was very impressed, the service was Great and the food was excellent and came out very quickly. The only suggestion I would make is if its early in the day (9-11) popcorn appetizer should be an option. I myself don;t want to eat it that early in the day and think it is just wasted. Just a thought. Other than that THUMBS UP!!!!!!!!!

Copperwood Tavern is THE BEST brunch place in the Alexandria/Arlington area! Though I live in Old Town Alexandria, which has a plethora of popular brunch spots, I drive to Copperwood Tavern in Shirlington because their brunch can't be beat! I highly recommend! This restaurant is seriously the best farm to table restaurant around!! The wait staff is friendly and extremely attentive and the customer service is tops!

Nice atmosphere for Sunday brunch! Tasty food and attentive, but not overpowering, service. All good! Will definitely go back again! Parking in the area on Sunday can be tricky because of street fair but just get there a little early.

As always, Copperwood Tavern was superb. The vegetables are always the best. Brussels sprouts are an all time favorite, along with the mushrooms, asparagus, and mac and cheese. Three of our party had never been there before and they are all converts, especially for the vegetables.

After making reservations well-in-advance of the date of our business dinner, I called the day of the reservation and talked to the host about an hour before our dinner, confirming the reservation and reiterating that we had requested a table outside since one of our colleagues would be bringing a puppy. After suggesting that they weren't expecting a full-house anyway and confirming that the request for an table outside would be accommodated, we were dismayed to be told upon arrival that we would have to wait 45 minutes for our table. Since many in the group came into Arlington from MD and DC for dinner, we decided to go elsewhere to avoid further delaying the start of our dinner on a weekday evening. I have taken social gatherings and business meetings at Copperwood Tavern previously, and it was a favorite restaurant in Shirlington. After this instance, I will second guess taking meetings there in the future. If you can't accommodate, then don't. But don't confirm that you will and then fail to when your patrons arrive.

The salad was plain-- didn't seem to contain any ingredients they should be in abundance in August. salad dressing was so bland, it might have been dressed in nothing but oil. I kept reaching for salt to break up the monotony, but there was none on the table. Either a mistake or arrogance. The best thing about the grilled oysters was the tobasco I added. The Romanesca on the rockfish had some flavor, but I'm not sure why it came layered over a puddle of oil. The rockfish was full of bones. The tables on the patio are claustrophobicly close together.

Brunch at Copperwood Tavern never disappoints. The food is delicious - highly recommend the French toast, duck hash, salmon Benedict, and the fried green tomatoes - and the service is always friendly and attentive.

I can't recommend this restaurant because my friend and I both got someone else's lunch. my friend ordered a chicken salad and got a sandwich with bacon on it. I ordered the salad with watermelon and there was no watermelon to be found - watermelon was the reason I ordered that particular salad.
We didn't bother to let our server know because we would've had to wait another 25 minutes to eat. What a pain. I could understand getting one order wrong but not both.

Copperwood Tavern was a pleasant surprise. In an area with extreme competition (restaurants are everywhere) I'd go to this place in a heart beat again. The food was good, the wine list solid but the service could have been much better. Our waiter just didn't appear often enough or regularly enough--we kept having to flag him down. Beyond the wait staff issue, I'd go here again with no issues. My partner ordered the pecan-crusted Trout Filet. A tad too buttery but otherwise really, really tasty. I ordered the Farm Raised Brown Ale Butter Chicken. It was OUTSTANDING. Very, very good dish. We got a side of Brussel Sprouts (excellent) and Truffled Mac and Cheese which was also very good. Looking forward to a return trip.

We very much enjoyed our time at Copperwood. This was not my first visit nor will it be my last. They have fantastic food, good service and a wonderful local beer selection. This is a great place for dates, friendly get-togethers, and especially brunch.
