Sadly, this place has closed

Too bad, they had the best strawberry - bacon guacamole. Happily, the house margaritas, some of the best I've ever had, are still being made at the new restaurant that has taken its place in the same location, East Coast Alice's. RIP Casa de Cobre.

We loved Casa de Cobre but I was sad to discover that it's now closed. I think it happened very recently in March or April of 2015. Hope they re-open elsewhere!

We were the first customers of this new restaurant, which was previously Casa de Cobre. Alice, the owner, is a warm and wonderful proprietress, and a great chef! We had a delicious and authentic Italian Pepper & Egg sandwich which was absolutely scrumptious with a delicious mixed green salad. For dessert, we had a wonderful cannoli and Italian cheesecake prepared... More

Casa de Cobre was not your typical Mexican fare. I don't recall what state the chef was from but it was authentic food from that area - not Tex-Mex. It was imaginative, flavorful cuisine. The chef, unfortunately, left and that is the end. I'm told it's going to reopen with an entirely different, fun concept so check it out.

I am not inclined to write negative reviews but I will make this one exception. On the plus side, Case de Cobre is an attractive spot in similarly attractive downtown Saratoga. The staff is extremely friendly and welcoming, and the food well prepared but not all that exciting. On the downside: A so-so chile relleno with a hunk of pork... More

We love Casa De Cobre- they have a unique menu - sometimes i just order the tapas like items as a meal, sometimes I go for their stews or great enchiladas or other uniquely prepared items. Can't say enough - love these guys.

Menu items were amazingly creative. Service incredible. Quality apparent in every observable aspect from cleanliness, preparation, freshness, flavors, variety, atmosphere, attention to detail must be their base line for this fine and rate gem

Very good menu and better than run of the mill Mexican restaurants. Service was attentive and not as noisy as some family restaurants.
