Copper has many elements which could make it a truly outstanding restaurant; a tranquil setting, distinctive interior design, and decent upscale menu. Despite these positive attributes, Copper has consistently missed the mark and disappointed me. I've dined there about 5 or 6 times (I live...More

Once upon a time, Copper was hot! The food was superb and the service unmatched. Sadly, I fear those days have passed. In today's visit, although there were no more than half a dozen tables full in the entire place, we sat at a table...More

We love Copper. The menu is very diverse as well as the wine selection. The four of all had different entrees and we all were very happy with our selections. Meat was prepared to specification and the salmon was outstanding. Would highly recommend Copper.
