We wanted so much to enjoy our time at Copperwood, however that was not the case. It was a humid day so we sat inside; it wasn’t busy yet took 15 minutes for anyone to take a drink order. We ordered at the same time, with a clear explanation of unique considerations for cooking of beef. Based on server recommendation my husband ordered what he thought was a “medium-well” burger. The food came out quickly, and while tasty, 2 biggies:
1. Burger was RARE by an any definition, but our server disappeared!
2. The ask for extra ketchup took 20 minutes, and was only granted by my approaching the hostess.
The only time we ever saw our server was when we glanced her chatting with fellow staff by the rear of the bar. An attentive busboy (man) ultimately took care of us.
Seriously?

Food was terrific as always but this is the second time in three weeks that I experienced extremely slow service. Lunch took two and half hours, and no one checked on us once our meals were delivered.

I ordered the duck breast - medium rare. It came chewy and well done - awful but my dog liked it. The potatoes were served completely dry. the whole meal was just awful. My friend ordered the short ribs (they came out cold- inedible) and the only thing that was good is that she ordered the brusell sprouts. They came out hot and really good. Everything else was over-priced and dog food.

We always enjoy coming to the Tavern. This was a brunch occasion - great shrimp and grits, cauliflower hash! The elderberry mimosa was quite tasty! And our server was very gracious in dealing with a table full of older guests with hearing and mobility challenges. Just wish the noise level had been a tad lower.

Fast service. We requested to change seats and they were very accommodating but only after the 2nd request. Menu is very limited. Presentation of food was good and taste great. My boyfriend said the rabbit was excellent. My lobster mac n cheese was good.

The startups were the best part of the meal - had the goat cheese and the short ribs with parsnip puree. The filet mignon was just okay; jmy friends seemed to enjoy what they were eating. Tuesday is free chocolate cake night, which is always a nice way to top off a meal, and was just that little something extra that all restaurants should try to give to customers to leave them feeling a little better!

I sincerely regret forgetting our waitress's name because she was fantastic--appropriately attentive, fair and considered (and wonderful) recommendations. My food was okay. My steak was a little overcooked and the mushrooms and fries were lukewarm/cold. But my friend has not stopped raving about the fried goat cheese. She also loves the fried green tomatoes. And I can give two thumbs up to the cauliflower mash.

The seating was not level (we were in a booth/chair sitch). The music was fantastic (but I love the 90s). Well ventilated and comfortable.

Came for Fathers Day, oysters were small and our steaks were overdone. Service was extremely slow, which is understandable with lack of employees but can be planned against.

Food was great. Ambience wonderful. Only downside was that our waiter disappeared towards the end of the evening and forgot to bring our check. We had to flag down another waiter twice to get the check.

This was my 1st visit to Copperwood, and I'll return. Service was prompt and efficient. Brie and steak salad were delicious, and by eating outside we enjoyed the energetic ambiance (complete with well behaved pet canines) that Campbell Ave in Shirlington provided on Saturday night. Food was a good value for what you received.

Made a reservation for noon and was sat right away. Server greeted us soon as we sat down. Water and popcorn arrived shortly after we ordered our drinks. Quality of food and temperature was excellent. Cauliflower hash was the star dish. It was flavorful and well-seasoned. Wish there were more than just two biscuits though. :(
