We have come to The Copper Grouse a couple of times now and it is always incredible. The food is excellent, and the service is always above and beyond. It's familiar and comfortable, with the staff anticipating your needs and available to help with anything. We are already making plans to come back.

From start to finish everything at Copper Grouse was wonderful. It was storming outside and we came in looking like drowned rats. The hostess was gracious and didn't blink. We were seated immediately in an immaculately prepared dining room with Covid safety in mind.

Soon after getting settled, our friendly and appropriately welcoming server came to see what he could get us. The service was well paced, and the meal was delicious. My husband is on a restricted diet right now, and they were very receptive to his request. Both of us thought our entrées (Seafood Rice Bowl and a modified Caesar Salad with Salmon) and our shared appetizer of asparagus and mushrooms were really above and beyond. We would have been satisfied with a decently executed preparation and presentation, as these aren't particularly difficult dishes, but we were pleasantly surprised at how truly gourmet and subtle the flavors were.

My martini was perfect, and the server made sure he got the details right when I ordered it, repeating what I had asked for which I really appreciated. The check came in a timely fashion, not too quickly and not too slowly. Overall, a perfect first indoor dining experience in a year! Looking forward to returning soon.

The food was terrible! We had the special chicken and wild rice soup which hardly had any chicken in it, and was more of just broth. Both of our dinners were terribly over salted, and the steak was unevenly cooked. It was ordered medium, and 2 bites were medium the rest were medium well or well. For $42 steak I expected better, but the real problem was the salty food. My husband had the colossal shrimp special (2shrimp over risotto) and that was salty with undercooked risotto. I know risotto isn’t supposed to be soft, but our dinner was served within 20 min of ordering so it makes sense why the risotto was crunchy. Drinks were good, and service was prompt.

Very overpriced for the quality and experience. Service is rushed and curt. We saw the take out menu later and found that the QR code menu in the restaurant is lacking descriptions. Would have been helpful to know what our choices were in more detail. Overall it felt far too crowded for COVID times. Would not recommend!

We went to the copper grassroots Sunday night dinner after three days in Manchester. The service is very good, the servers are super casually dressed which is fine. It cost more than our five star dinner at the Silver Fork which was a slightly shocking and the same wine we had at the Silver Fork was $25 more expensive per bottle. Some thing they might want to consider… Otherwise super great casual atmosphere and lovely setting.

Felt a bit rushed throughout our meal; we were seated at 8:30 (when our reservation was), and were told by the hostess that all guests needed to be out by 10pm due to state ordinance. Our waitress told us this multiple times and then as we went through our meal asked about dessert and final drinks before we'd finished eating. We still left by 9:30, but just felt a bit like we were being hurried out, despite plenty of other people still being in the restaurant when we left.

We were looking forward the Copper Grouse, the decor was very nice, the service hospitable and the food (lunch) even though a limited menu, the burgers were super. The unfortunate part was the final bill. For 2 small salads, 2 burgers and a few cocktails, we were stunned by a $300+ bill!!!

We asked for clarity as there must have been a mistake, only to be angered when we were told our afternoon cocktail order had been billed as 2 drinks in 1. We had asked for a splash of St. Germain to be added to our Tequila/Lime mix, and without being informed, the restaurant practically charged us a full drink for that splash that went into each cocktail. We are from NYC and know all too well how pricey cocktails can be...but this is no city bar/lounge and a $30 drink where ever you go is an OUTRAGEOUS & OFFENSIVE "RIP-OFF".

We will never go back! Save your aggravation and go to the "Silver Fork" or "The Reluctant Panther", those were wonderful and even though pricey, the ambiance was nicer, food great, and both were $100 less for dinner for two.

My first experience at the Copper Grouse left me feeling underwhelmed. The service itself was just okay - I'd like to give them the benefit of the doubt and believe we caught them on an off night. The ambience was pleasant enough and it is probably even more inviting when the outdoor porch is open for dining. The food was average and some dishes seemed to have a little too much going on (i.e. Halibut). The drinks and entrees were extremely overpriced for the quality and, combined with the average service, did not feel it was worth the money.

Food was good/solid but not noteworthy. There wasn’t much to differentiate this from other dining experiences and found to food perhaps a touch bland. My short ribs were very soft but the barbecue seemed like it came from a bottle - without accents of anything interesting. So the food was good but not at the price point.

The Copper grouse was a wonderful experience. Started with the cheese board as we were quite hungry from a day of skiing. Followed by a Winter Green salad and then the seafood rice bowl. My husband had the salmon. My husband and I shared the starters. Everything we were served was absolutely delicious. We enjoyed our meal with draught porters. We had the bread pudding for dessert, again a share, which was the perfect ending. Our server was very attentive. The ambiance is lovely. Although we did not stay in the Taconic hotel, where the restaurant is located, we like what we saw and definitely plan to stay there in the future. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
