About The Copper Onion
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
We split several small plates, so I cannot offer anything on the entrees. But our food was fresh and well prepared. The real drawback on a Friday night was the NOISE. It should be called Copper Ceiling. Because it is in fact a copper hammered ceiling. And when it's full, man, super loud. Forget having an intimate or even any conversation. But if that's your bag, then you'll be all over it. We went to eat and the food was above average, not truly memorable, but just fine for a Friday night. But I can't plan on going back because of the unreal noise of the place. I wish I had a decibel meter, it must have been over 100dB.
Just a delightful evening. We chose outdoor dining on purpose. I was there a few months ago, in the winter months. It was so noisy indoors that, once the restaurant was filled, we could hardly hear each other across the table. The hammered copper ceiling is gorgeous, but sound baffles would work better! My only complaint. Just a great please otherwise! Thanks.
This was our second time dining at Copper Onion and we were not disappointed with the food or service! We shared a cheese plate and olives as our appetizer - swoon! I had the lamb riblets and they were outstanding. My husband had the pasta special and raved about it. Our wine choice was a Spanish wine called Alzania and it paired exceptionally well with our meal. Our server was Brady and he was very pleasant and efficient and took excellent care of us. Reservations are a must. Seating is somewhat cramped - which would be my only minor complaint. We were squashed into a corner table which didn't really fit my husband's 6' 6" frame BUT the food was so delicious we weren't really all that bothered.
This was a superb dining experience. The waiter (Ben) was knowledgeable, attentive and easily accessible. The cocktail I had was excellent. My associates enjoyed well prepared and plated dishes and the timing of the food and it's presentation was above average. Of spectacular note were the marrow bones, the pickles, rainbow trout was really succulent.
Have been several times. This time for brunch they got rid of the breakfast/brunch menu with just a regular breakfast. We asked and they made one for us. Waiter was exceptionally slow. Have had him before and he was slow then too. Also, we were the first to arrive just before the restaurant opened and were told to wait but people who came in after us were seated first. Woman at the front couldn't keep track of who was waiting where. Food was OK, very greasy bacon and potatoes. Probably won't go back for brunch anytime soon.
This is my favorite restaurant of the copper group and I've never had a bad or disappointing experience here. The servers are extremely professional and personable. I typically spend at least 2 or more hours here, even during lunch, and have never been given the impression that the wait staff is eager to turn the table or get me out (rare). The food is truly some of the best in the city, consistently unique, seasonal, and offering something for everyone. And if there's a wait, you can always get a drink next door at copper commons (yum!).
The beef stroganoff is crazy good, and enjoyed a top notch burger as well! Had a seat at the chef's counter, which made us feel like a part of the action in the kitchen. It was truly amazing to watch the professionals at work! Great beer, great atmosphere, great service, and fantastic food. Highly recommend!
