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.
