Hi, Copper Chimney is becoming one of my preferred restaurants. I enjoy the ambiance, and the service is excellent. However, my food was "just warm" this time and I was disappointed. I decided not to return it because I was with a client and wouldn't have been appropriate. She claimed that her food was not "hot", but that it was still fine. Thank you.

I eat a lot of Indian in different spots around the world and this just isn’t very authentic or good. Decent but not really good. Calamari had zero spice (hard to do with Indian cuisine). Naan was good but that isn’t too hard.

Mother’s Day brunch didn’t take place in the restaurant - rather on the second floor of the hotel in a banquet room. The restaurant is beautiful and was looking forward to dining in it. Food was reasonable. Funny set up of the buffet - not everything had a utensil and salad dressings were placed far away from salad. Overall, pleasant. Felt a little duped that the brunch wasn’t in the restaurant.

Our lunch was not bad, I was really looking forward to eating here and unfortunately I found the food to just be ok, yet when I read the menu I thought it would be really good. So I was a little disappointed.

I found the portions to be small for what they were charging, I don't think I would go here if I had to pay for my meal.

The service was good, the food came fast. That was a positive.

I just wasn't wowed!

I arrived at my reserved time only to find the restaurant closed in 15 minutes. The day was rescued by the host at the restaurant who profusely apologized, took me to the concierge at the hotel next door who arranged lunch at an excellent restaurant nearby with no wait time.

The ambience/decor was lovely and comfortable, the food was very good and the value was there for us as we had a Groupon ---I do not know if I would feel the same way if I had to pay full price. Although the service was friendly it was very limited. Not to slag our waitress as she was very friendly but she was just a little absentminded and non attentive, but more in an unknowing way---Definitely not a fine dining service style but more down home pub feel--although I feel the actual establishment may be striving for something better.

We were celebrating our anniversary and had a wonderful meal here. The decor was upscale but not overly so. We especially liked the large ceiling light array and the mural above the stairway was beautiful. The food was delicious, we had a sharing meal with several entree samples and added an order of rosemary naan that we also enjoyed. The meal was capped off with spicy mango pudding, a new to us treat that we highly recommend.

The tables were well spaced, the initial service was attentive but gradually tapered off to the point we had to get our servers attention as one passed our table if we had a question or needed something. Overall we would dine here again and do recommend it.

Lovely location, our table was just in from the door so just a tad cold at times, but it was a beautiful settings, the service was really good and the food was good to great. Some of the food was coldish (not cold, just not as warm as it should have been) but that was not much of an issue for us. Overall, a great time.

The four of us enjoyed the food. The service however was not great. She seemed to be oblivious to what was going on at the table. For example, three of us ordered a bottle of wine to share and she walked away without even asking what our 4th person wanted. It was one thing after another with her.

Ambiance and service good. Food was mediocre. The luncheon special (beef curry) for $14.00 had sold out by the time we ordered around 12:15 p.m. No substitute was provided. My friend and I both ordered the lamb curry instead at $28.00. There appeared to be no extra value added for the increase in price, i.e. I am sure the chef simply substituted lamb in the vegetable curry sauce for the beef. Very poor. Would not recommend this restaurant for anyone who really enjoys Indian food.

I'd heard rave reviews about this place. As Vij's is my go-to for neuvo Indian cuisine I was hesitant to give it a try. I managed to get the group together for our annual Christmas dinner so we thought we'd give this a try.. It's a very comfortable nicely decorated room. The service personnel were quite good. However the food was not stellar and the prices, especially the wine prices, are offensive. Portion size is ridiculously small and it is not anywhere near as good as their competition. If you're in the downtown core and it happens to be a convenient place to dine for you, go for it. But there are other better places at more reasonable prices in the city. All of us agreed, we won't be returning.

My wife and I had dinner at Copper Chimney on Friday, 01 December 2017.

The Good:

My wife really enjoyed the Tandoori Salmon and their Butter Chicken was delicious.

Best Crab Cakes I have ever had.

Beautiful room and not too noisy - we were actually able to hear each other talk.

The Not So Good:

Our order, for some reason, was taken by the bartender. 2 other servers then came to our table after the bartender asking to take our order.
A fourth server brought our appetizer and both entrees at the same time - the explanation was that the bartender made "an error".
We all make mistakes, but we were unable to have our entrees directly in front of us because the table was relatively small. Not exactly convenient.

The manger then arrived and told me " I will buy you a beer " to make us for the inconvenience.
Well, I like beer so that was well and good. Unfortunately, he completed ignored my wife as if she did not exist. After this, no servers came to our table and the ?hostess brought over the bill.

Overall:

The Chefs did a great job. The Service was random and disorganized. At this price point, you can find better food and service (they go together after all) in Vancouver. Will not be back soon.
