First off, when we went here we had no idea it was part of the Hilton hotel-we we’re experiencing (or hoping for) a gastro pub to relax in, unwind in and just eat some fair prices, decent food. To be fair, our waiter was great-polite...and fun and he deserves his own four stars, but the food-albeit nice enough-was nowhere near the standard to justify the expensive price and the cocktails were sub par in selection and concoction. More a basic hotel bar than a true “pub” with little to no real atmosphere either. Half of this rating at least belongs to the server.More

We had a wonderful meal tonight at the Copper Fox. We enjoyed the nachos (house made potato chips with melted Gouda cheese, pico de gallo) freshest side salad I have had lately and a juicy fresh hamburger. Everything was prepared perfectly. The host and hostess...working the tables and bar, were by themselves and were lovely. They were knowledgeable about the menu, very personable and prompt with delivery of the meals. We will dine here again.More

On a quick trip to Chicago this holiday season, my husband and I stopped here with a few friends to kick off our evening on the town. It was immediately a warm and cozy atmosphere...looking festive for the holidays! We all wanted crafty cocktails, and...we were impressed with the options and recommendations offered by an outgoing gal named Sylvie who was helping us! Most of the group ordered Old Fashions, while I had the Nice Pear...all beautifully served and tasty to boot. The great service and yummy drinks set our night off on the right foot, for sure. Thanks Sylvie and Copper Fox for a great visit!More

We booked a last min reservation for 13 people at CopperFox. They were extremely nice and very accommodating. My wife is in a wheelchair and they made every effort to help her. In addition our waitress, Christian, was really nice, thoughtful and helpful. She was...present without being too much there, we loved her. Also the food was really good, especially the biscuits and hushpuppies.More

Though the food was very average. Fries were overcooked. Chicken sandwich was better than the fish tacos. Atmosphere was okay - music a little too loud and lights a little too bright. Service was excellent - Celeste did an excellent job.More

I really liked the breakfast in this place (in terms of food) and the service. But I think a restaurant shouldn't serve cappuccino in disposable cups even when they get it from the inhouse Starbucks for you.

We found the Copper Fox kind of by accident while in the city for a day. Just off Michigan Avenue on Ontario Street, it's location is terrific. We started with some of their seasonal cocktails, and the mac & cheese (splits easily between two people)....Fantastic! Our server, Allie, was wonderful: friendly, helpful about food and drink, and the right amount of attention (not too distant, not hovering, always there when we needed her). Comfortable, lovely setting; perfect for lunch or dinner. We'll be back!More
