Copper River is a wonderful experience in fine dining. I like that the menu changes periodically with what is fresh and being sourced at the time. The crab cake appetizer is delicious. I have tried many of the fish entrees and they have all been very good. I also like the side dishes that are... read more

We were 3 couples, and the waitress (don't recall her name) was excellent. The food was also excellent we had the lobster roll and some of our friends had the fish and chips, both we very, very good and nicely presented. We will be back for both lunch and dinner.

My wife and I came here for Valentine's Day dinner. This was our first time here, but I had heard good things from a co-worker. The only strike against our experience was that we had a 6:00pm reservation and weren't seated until a little after 6:15pm. Given the busy evening and the relatively short wait for our table, we weren't... More

This was my wife and my first visit to Copper River. We will absolutely be going back. I'll start with the only complaint. The service was very slow. The waiter was polite and knowledgeable, but it took way to long for the food to arrive and even to get the check at the end. It was Saturday night and they... More

I recently dined here with my extended family. The building is beautiful .. completely clad in copper on the outside and wood on the inside, with huge chandeliers made entirely of test tubes. (Yes, test tubes!) The food however, was spotty. One member of our group had a salmon signature dish, which he said was wonderful. Two of us had... More

We had an amazing dinner last night. Our waiter was attentive but not too attentive and very knowledgeable about the menu and food in general. He did a fantastic job with recommendations and answering questions...mentioned "the chef" quite a few times, which I actually thought was a nice touch. The waiter was obviously a good, which I appreciated. And the... More

Had the appetizer fish tacos and while the cod was cooked fine, the corn tortillas were uncooked and simply put on the plate. They were soft and rubbery! That is not how fish tacos are supposed to be! The cabbage slaw was boring and tasteless. These were some of the worst fish tacos I have ever had---and way overpriced at... More

Easily the best restaurant steak I have ever had. According to the waitress they only order enough steaks for the next day or so. So every steak has never been frozen and is of top quality. Its easy to tell this when you take your first bit. The restaurant has a very nice atmosphere with the diffused lighting that they... More

We dined for our Anniversary. We were the only table with people dining in. The server was ok, food very good, but NO atmosphere whatsoever. Dissappointed. Was not special.
