Four of us went for dinner to celebrate dad’s day. As we waited for the other two to arrive, we looked at the wine list. $40 to over $300, with most bottles 50 and more. We were disappointed that the same wine we can buy in the real world for 14 or 15 dollars is over 60 here. Better to have brought our own and paid corkage. For a light dinner, one of us had crab cakes, two very very small cakes about the size of a medium scallop, and a Caesar salad, the second had French onion soup and salad. The third had fish tacos which were slightly sweet rather than spicy. And the fourth had a French dip sandwich and a Caesar salad with very little dressing on it.
Our wait person stopped by a couple of times, was pleasant enough but not particularly attentive to things like empty glasses, etc. the Cooperage is a large place with a couple of rooms, plus outdoor seating, high ceilings and an industrial look . This setting results in a pretty noisy atmosphere and we had a bit of trouble hearing one another. But it’s a casual restaurant, not fine dining, so all of that was to be expected. We’ll probably go again- the burgers are good- but not when there are large families celebrating! Priced moderately, we paid $220 with tip.
