About The Copper Onion
Salt Lake City, UT 84111
The Copper Onion is one of the new additions to the growing Utah foodie scene. Former NYC chef (and native Utahan) Ryan Lowder now brings his personal take on New American cuisine to his own kitchen with an approach inspired by his passion for Utah’s outstanding farmstead ingredients and his experience as a chef cooking his way through Barcelona, NYC and South America. The Copper Onion serves a wide array of vegetable side dishes and a menu designed to explore and share, with plates such as Ricotta Dumplings with lemon, sage and brown butter and Braised Pork Belly with seasonal vegetables. An insistent focus on the freshest and best is paramount; sausages and burgers are ground daily, bread is baked and ice cream is made in house, offering casual diners an exceptional experience at affordable prices.

The Copper Onion Ratings and Reviews

Every time we are in SLC we have to come to the Copper Onion. It is just that good! We love how they sculpt their menu to have fresh seasonal foods yet keep their wonderful year round customers favorites on the menu. Great cocktails and a lovely place to end our day. We especially love the pork chop, steak frites, bone marrow and brussel sprouts.

The food was good, however We don' t care for the ambience , a bit too dark and pretty noisy. All foods and drinks are way overpriced!!!! . Half a chicken was more like 1/4 , for $27.00.?. The cheapest glass of wine was $9.00 . My teenage son ordered Pesto Pasta which probably fit for someone under 10 yrs, very tiny portion for $ 17.00? ( no meat , just pasta with pesto sauce) . We have been waiting so long to try this restaurant since it's so popular....now we know that it's not worth the wait . I would not recommend this Restuarant to anybody.

We made a reservation over a month in advance and were seated almost an hour late. It was our daughters wedding and as usual, the service was atrocious. The hostess and host were ridiculously unprofessional. We are done at the Copper Onion.

We made reservations for New Years Eve and were greeted by engaging young hosts. Our table was available as reserved and we were promptly seated. Justin, our server, was knowledgable, professional and personable. The food was well prepared and plated with a wonderful appearance and texture. There is everything to praise about the service, food, organization and ambiance of Copper Onion. We look forward to our return and will invite friends.

One of the best restaurants in Salt Lake. In six days of our vacation we went twice... would have gone again if our trip was longer! Try the fish dishes, beef stroganoff, pork chops, craft cocktails and do not miss the goat cheese cake.... wow!

We sat at the bar to wait for a table the worst service I have ever had!! Two bartenders a ten seat bar and it took 20 min to get a drink. While waiting for a very poor quality drink I got sprayed with water by the bartender! No offer of a complimentary drink and she asked me how to
Make a vodka & grapefruit juice drink! This set all four of us up for a lot of annoyance before we even got to our table. Very NOISY dining area
Will not be in. Hurry to go back to the Copper Onion

We ordered the winter salad, clams & chorizo pasta, and the burger. Everything was very tasty. The pasta was handmade and such a lovely consistency. The burger was so savory and the steak fries that come with it were battered to perfection. It's possible my husband's all-time favorite burger.

In the past, service was good & the burgers were the best in town. Sadly NOT now. Fries are good but cold & very small serving. I will try again...loved this place once upon a time. Seems to be going down hill. Hope not, it goes well with a visit to the Broadway theatre.

The food was exquisite. This was a treat for Christmas dinner. My son and I had wanted to come on other occasions, this time we made reservations ahead of time. He was impressed by the attention to flavor on each individual item.

We went to The Copper Onion because of the Michelin star it had earned. I ordered a martini and it was served in a much smaller cordial glass. Bread not offered but we could see other tables had some. Those are a couple of the small things... The food was just not great. All three of us ordered something different and each of us thought our food was not very good, let alone Michelin star worthy. Chicken dish was too sweet, Pork special was too fatty and the pork chop was dry. Wine prices were outrageous.

I've been eating at The Copper Onion since they first opened and have always had delicious, fun meals there. The room is beautiful in a lively, cozy distro way, the service is great, even when super-busy (as it seems to always be) and the food continues to be excellent. If you have even the slightest interest in the Copper Onion Burger - I say, go for it. It's perfect. And my husband and I shared an AMAZING cheesecake that managed to be ethereal yet satisfying, with the surprise yum factor of pistachios and lightly candied -but still nicely bitter- orange rind.

Loved this restaurant. My boyfriend and I were in from out of town for a wedding, and I had just graduated college. He took me here for a celebratory brunch and it was perfect. It can be hard choosing a place off of reviews alone but we were very pleased.
The ambiance was great, and was decorated for Christmas. The food was exceptional and I was really surprised at how reasonably priced brunch was. We were celebrating, and didn't spare any expense. We both got a meal, two mimosas each and shared a cinnamon roll and the total was actually under $50!

We went here for our anniversary and had a great time. They got us seated quickly and the atmosphere was great. I had the spare pork ribs and my wife had the beef Stroganoff. Both were delicious but the stroganoff was a bit on the salty side. We both like vegetables as well and could have used more. Admittedly, we didn't order menu items with lots of veggies so it's partially our fault. Will revisit for sure.

I have eaten at this restaurant many times. I almost always take out of town company to this restaurant. I am done with this place. I have a hard time understanding why this place stays near the top. The consistency of this place is terrible. You can't count on anything anymore. I think a place like this, with this price point and popularity should be excellent. Every time.
We were there on Friday night and there were 6 of us. My BIGGEST pet peeve in a restaurant is when a waiter doesn't write ANYTHING down. Is this what the management asks of the waiters here? NO ONE thinks you are a rock star if you remember this without writing it down. TRUST me when I say that we ALL want you to write it down. Every. One. Of. Us. So... we start out with Ben NOT writing anything down. AND... of course, each couple has something wrong with their order. One couple waited through half of the main course before they finally got their beer they ordered at the same time as the rest of the table. Another couples' salad was wrong and had to be redone. My husband's steak was wrong and instead they brought him a burger. By the time they returned with his order, we were all done eating. To be charged, when something like this happens is a CRIME! You should NOT charge someone for an entree when it is delivered after the rest of the table has eaten. And then to have the 20% added to our bill after all of this is ridiculous also. This used to be a great place. Not anymore.

Reserved a table for 6, even though 1 of my guests mentioned having bad service in the past. I arrived early & relayed this to the Host, who assigned my group to what he described as 'his best server' Coincidentally, we all ordered the hamburger. Three of the 6 of us had errors on our orders. My dirty martini had no olive juice. One burger ordered with the extra $1 cheddar cheese slice came with meat and cheese, but none of the other standard toppings. Finally, the guest who had bad service previously didn't get her order until most of us were done with our meal. She asked for a 'to go box'. I was so disappointed I confronted our server, Amy. She made excuses about there being too many burger orders and the kitchen got behind. Only after I insisted, she agreed to comp my friend the cost of her meal. I had brought along a birthday cake and at $2 a plate, they did serve up the dessert without any problems, but that's the only positive remark I can offer.
