Strange restaurant. They are European in their presentation and atmosphere but the food is as uneven as a Flagstaff street. One visit you walk out saying that was the best meal ever served in Flagstaff, a city not particularly noted for fine restaurants. The next time it was dreadful. Our last visit was the latter description. We were seated right in front of a door at a table the size of a dinner plate and it was 20 degrees outside. Every time someone came and opened the door, they stood there staring inside for an eternity while the arctic air blew in and people on the other side of the restaurant reached for their coats.
But wait...we point out that there are 4 empty tables available out of the maelstrom. No they say, we have to save those for larger groups. So we sat, and shivered. After 45 minutes we still had not been served. Meanwhile a single lady came in, of course stood in the open doorway for a long few seconds and then was told the same thing we were told. So we did the prudent thing. We offered to let her have our table! But instead they showed her to a table for 8 and she sat there all alone, by herself, sola! What's up with that we say? Silence...the Yurruppean sign of who knows what.
Anyway, the special that night was Cassolet straight off the boat from France that docked down at the Rio de Flag. I have actually had that dish, in Paris, Europe, no less,but this did not resemble it in many, many ways. Needless to say, for $25 I ate every slimy bit of it and ended up sick for 3 days! I was constantly reminded of this experience with each successive trip to the john, ur toilette. Sorry to be graphic but...
Several other times previously we had tried to go here only to find it closed. Their hours seem to be only vague suggestions, much like stop signs in Paris and Rome. so I guess Coppa mush be authentic.
In short, you won't know what awaits you until you try it and it is different every time, believe me.
Oh, and the single lady at the table for 8...she sat there for over an hour and thoroughly enjoyed herself. She must have been from Yurrupp.
