    We celebrated our wedding anniversary & received complimentary champagne. Great ambiance -- the chocolate cake was the best chocolate cake we ever had! It was truly scrumptuous. I'm a girl that likes fruity cocktails, and there wasn't much of that on the menu, but that's okay. Perfect spot to watch fireworks as well - unexpected surprise that made our night all the much special. Thank you to the lovely waiter who served us and was such a sweetheart.

    Reserved table to enjoy watching the firework festival, I was extremely disappointed with the amount of random people standing and blocking my view. This would not be an issue however these individuals did not make any form of beverage or food purchases. I did not find this fair to the wait staff or those paying customers. Perhaps next year limit outdoor access to paying customers only.

    Definitely one of the nicest places in Ottawa. You can not go wrong with this patio- the sights were magnificent. We happened to come during the firework competition, which made everything even more beautiful. Service was impeccable! Our waitress was incredibly attentive and kind.

    For a place that is supposed to be a higher-end place, I wasn't impressed. It was loud, we didn't originally get the table we were promised in our reservation, and my wife and I felt very rushed when all we wanted to do was relax and celebrate our anniversary. Quite disappointing because the place has a million-dollar view.

    We were staying at the hotel and decided it would be nice to have drink with a view. We were told that we could not go outside and the tables inside were so close to one another there was no way to social distancing? I couldn’t hear what my daughter was saying and when saw the cost for a drink we decided to leave. The cheapest drink was $18 for half a glass of wine 🤦🏼‍♀️and there was nothing food wise that resembled or stated gluten free.

    Honestly, the view was the only good thing about this venue. We arrived for our reservation and, yes we were early. After 15-20 minutes of us sitting there, our waiter never showed up. I flagged down a hostess and asked if we could order, she was surprised our waiter didn't come to see us but took our order. Another 15 minutes goes by and no drinks, no sign of anyone, I asked the hostess again if our drinks were coming and she said "There's only one bartender tonight" (for a Saturday night). So I asked if our drinks were made and if not, we would be leaving. I've worked in customer service for 15 years and restaurant service/bartending for over 5, it was a complete disappointment. I asked to speak with a manager and the hostess said it was the bartender but "you did show up 20 minutes early for your reservation". She asked if we still wanted to speak with him. He's slammed with orders and I've been in that position before so I obviously didn't want to disturb. This is supposed to be a high end restaurant/lounge. Perhaps they need to invest in customer service and more employees to cater to their patrons. And if it were such an issue to be there earlier, why not tell us that they are busy but we can sit and enjoy the view in the meantime? Transparency is everything in any industry.

    Amazing food amazing atmosphere, can get a bit expensive but is completely expected for a restaurant like this - you pay for what you get. My only complaint is it is very hard to get in touch with the restaurant. No information on the menu and I had questions about food sensitivities but could not reach them, email, call, and using the open tables app I reached out for weeks. When we actually went it was great and the servers made sure to keep all food allergies into consideration which was fantastic, it just would’ve been nice to not worry about this until the day of.

    Incredible view, cool booths but was there on a Friday night and the music was not what I was expecting from a trendy rooftop bar. It was old rock with Bon Jovi, very different vibe than what I thought it would be. Good stiff drinks and fire tables!

    They really need a food menu so you can spend some time on that gorgeous terrace. The views are amazing, the service is great. Shame you can get much to eat other than a few snack options or a $100 seafood platter.

    While the views and the server was great I was very disappointed with but overall experience. For a summer Saturday night rooftop restaurant in a high ranking hotel downtown I was expecting a lounge type of night it came up short. If you experience this type of experience you won’t see it here which is too bad

    Copper Spirits & SightsResponded on June 14, 2022Hello, Firstly, I appreciate that you enjoyed the drinks and the service, and I am sorry that we did not meet your expectations regarding the food and the ambiance. Copper S&S is a cocktail lounge with limited food options; hence the menu represents those selections. Additionally, we try to keep it upbeat and fun when it comes to the music, and it is evident that it was not to your liking. However, thanks for your feedback!
