My friend and I went for the Steak Frites special. Her steak was cooked as ordered. mine was overcooked and tough. Had to saw through the meat.
I'll stick to the trout in the future. It's very good.
Otherwise everything was fine.

It is a good place. Food is acceptable and the service is generally at high level. The best quality of this place is its surroundings and the view of the lake. The atmosphere is very pleasant and distinguished. I highly recommend it for any tete-a-tete or bigger social gatherings.

This location in Gaithersburg is the best. The location in front of the lake is amazing. The service here is phenomenal, exceptional and outstanding. The food is amazing. The servers Manny, Anna, Kayala and Tyler are truly, professional, knowledgeable on the menu, excellent service, greet you with a smile, and fast service. The hostess Rachel, Anna and Clarissa exhibit excellent customer service. The management here is amazing. I recommend to so many friends and family members they were all impressed with the service and want to return base on the server and food. Highly recommend this resturant.

Copper Canyon has streamlined their menu to focus just on the things they do best and, therefore, the food has been consistently good. As always, service is fantastic.

It was a wonderful afternoon. I met a friend there for lunch and was early. I was able to look out over the water while waiting for her and we had a leisurely lunch. Never felt rushed. Food was great and afternoon was perfect. Server was there when we needed him. I felt like I was on vacation!

This was an exceptional time. We had a bad taste in our mouths from the last time we were here but after tonight’s meal we’ll be back on the regular. Dean and Luis made considerable efforts to make sure we were happy as we decided to come back and Charlotte our server was on point the entire night. I do love the food and especially the shrimp-cargot was to die for! We will be back as we usually are on a weekly stop on for dinner!

Waiter changed without explaining what happened. Manager broke a plate that shattered right next to our table with a 5 month old baby. There was a fly in the restaurant that landed on my plate. Food is overpriced.

Other than that, we enjoyed he food and the location. The second waiter that helped us was nice. The first one, I believe Brian or Ryan, was a little rude and decided to help someone else without explaining why.

The Mac and cheese was not that good. The sauce was very runny. The ribs were mealy.
Wife enjoyed her pot pie.

My party of 3. We had the egg rolls and everyone had a different salad. All were delicious.
Drinks were great, the Peartini, Moscow mule and Old Fashion! You can't go wrong with the Key Lime pie or Bread Pudding.

We went to celebrate a birthday. We arrived around 7:15 for 7:15, brought to table within 10 min. The clock for table was set and at 8:15, 8:30 and 8:45 we were told we were past 90 min deadline.. for a 7:15 reservation?! We didn’t finish our coffee, felt rushed .

Four women having a nice dinner together. Inglesio was great and was an excellent server. We sat in the patio and the restaurant followed Covid rules. The only disappointment was that there was no brownie and ice cream offered due to Covid. Very sad! I’m hoping that some kind of chocolate dessert will go back on the menu soon. Anyway, it was nice to get out.

Called day before to confirm reservations for mothers day. During covid my party of 8 has to be at 2 tables which is okay. I called to ask if those 2 tables could be near each other. Same room is possible. The hostess rudely responded "absolutely not" "there is no way". I would have appreciated a response of "we will try but there's no guarantees". When we arrived the following day, the male hostess (I think maybe the manager) sat both tables next to each other. And I didn't even mention anything to him about the previous phone encounter with his hostess. He had a hostess seat us, and she says there's a 90 minute seating rule. We must leave after 90 minutes. I get its mothers day and they are busy, but why would you say that at Hello? Very rude hostess. Wish I got her name. Server was excellent. Food was good. But will probably not go back because customer service from hostess has forever tarnished my opinion of the place. Sadly, I've been going there the last few years for mothers day.
