Right downtown in Salt Lake, this restaurant offers authentic Italian fare that is well prepared and well presented. The menu is quite diverse and the wine list is extensive with lots of interesting and reasonably priced choices. There is a choice of indoor or outdoor seating and both are comfortable and appear to receive good service. Our service was friendly... More

I do not normally write reviews for restaurants, but when you see excellent you have to say something. I was able to land a seat at the chef's table bar overlooking the kitchen. Kendra and her crew were a well-oiled machine. I'm a bit of a clean freak, and the crew was very careful to make sure no cross-contamination occurred,... More

The Copper Onion has been a favorite for several years now going back as far as 2012. Their menu remains consistent in the practice of local and sustainable product. While many may claim such measures, years have proven Copper Onions dedication to the practice. A favorite has always been the Charcuterie and Cheese Boards. While their contents vary do to... More

This place is top notch! Best beef stroganoff I have ever had! We split that and a burger, the burger was good but the beef stroganoff was hands down the best dish. If you're in the area give it a try!

What a great evening at Copper Onion. Fortunately we had booked as there was some congestion in the doorway with people waiting. The greet was quick and friendly, however, and we bypassed the crowd and were taken to our table. Service was great, friendly and efficient with great recommendations on the food. Adding egg to the burger, thank you for... More

It was a Sunday and Salt Lake generally rolls it's sidewalks up that day. It was a pleasant surprise to find the Onion. You could actually get wine and the atmosphere was great. Great service and ambience. Bad news, the duck was so salty that we could not eat it. Good news, Caesar salad was great. Best of all, the... More

All components - service, food, atmosphere - top notch. Mostly business crowd. Only down side was that the lunch menu is somewhat limited - not a HUGE selection.

If you need a place to go on Sunday this is it. The fish and stroganoff were very good. Service was good and it was a very nice meal. Dessert was good.

This is one of the best spots to eat for lunch or dinner. Food is amazing. You can tell how much love and pride goes into each dish. Love the bone marrow, pork belly and lamb ribletts. And the cheese cake is not like you would expect. The consistency and flavor... please try it! Salt Lake has many great restaurants... More

The Copper Onion is one of the new additions to the growing Utah foodie scene. Former NYC chef (and native Utahan) Ryan Lowder now brings his personal take on New American cuisine to his own kitchen with an approach inspired by his passion for Utah’s outstanding farmstead ingredients and his experience as a chef cooking his way through Barcelona, NYC and South America. The Copper Onion serves a wide array of vegetable side dishes and a menu designed to explore and share, with plates such as Ricotta dumplings with lemon, sage and brown butter and Braised Pork Belly with shaved Brussels sprouts and pickled celeriac. Entrees include Fresh house-made papparedelle with lamb ragout and Duck Confit with butternut squash and roasted mushroom caps. An insistent focus on the freshest and best is paramount; sausages and burgers are ground daily, bread is baked and ice cream is made in house, offering casual diners an exceptional experience at affordable prices.
