Everybody was friendly at Copperwood. The service, food and atmosphere was outstanding. We will definitely return as it was a fabulous dining experience. The manager on duty, Clyde Glines, went out of his way to be welcoming and accommodating!! Thank You!

Very nice atmosphere. It was very good for lunch but it seems to me it is even better for after work and dinner.

It was ok, nothing special, seemed like another chain restaurant to me. I asked if they could make a Sidecar and the said they could so I ordered one and had to send it back, it was not even close, then ordered a extra dry Bombay Sapphire Martini and it had a strange taste (hard to screw up a extra dry martini with essentially one ingredient). To make matters worse, each drinks too 20-30 minutes to arrive. I was done with appetizers before the martini arrived. Saturday at 8pm was not that busy.
My spaghetti squash dinner was just ok, but bland.
I didn't hate it, but recommend vegetarians and anyone that likes classic cocktails go some place else.
If you like eating ducks and bunnies, this may be the place for you, but I'm out.

Unfortunately I would not recommend this restaurant nor will I return. Food was the biggest problem, atmosphere was the second. Service was ok. I had the steak salad with luke warm steak and many pieces were difficult to chew. Guest had the pork chop and it was just ok. Floors were dirty, table was dirty and wet. We will not be back.

Farm to Market makes me think clean and healthy. Instead beautiful produce and fresh fish under too rich sauces that masked the food flavors. The restaurant is very loud and I don’t handle noise well and said we needed to be on the patio. I immediately walked to the outside and the hostess rushed over to tell me - not nicely- I had to wait. I couldn’t stand the noise and went anyway

A big disappointment! Prices were high ($8.00 for a beer) and the atmosphere was awful. I felt like I was in a big hall. Super noisy.

Took some friends to One Loudoun . Copperwood was a great surprise. Great drink selection, yummy cornbread muffins, fresh fish, and delectable dessert. Also wonderful service. The ambience is really the only thing lacking, it does not have a cozy tavern feel.

Update: Ashley, the GM was kind enough to reach out to us to make this right. I really appreciate her efforts. Big bonus points for having upper management who is willing to stay customer focused and proactive.

This was one of the most bizarre experiences I have ever had at a restaurant. We were there for my wife's birthday with another couple. The boys ordered the dry aged rib eye medium rare. Both of them came out medium well; it was mostly grey and tasted dry. We politely asked the server, who was great, to take them back. The manager returned with the SAME plates and tried to tell us it was a "lighting problem". The outdoor lighting was causing it to look overdone and would not waste such a good steak. He overlooked the fact that it actually tasted well done. He then went on to say that they probed the steaks in the kitchen and they were 140 deg. What!! 140 is medium well in any book. He refused to replace our steaks and never even asked if we wanted something else. So we enjoyed the rest of our meals, watching our wives eat, staring at our overdone meat which went uneaten. We were not charged but that made little difference. We had to go across the street to Burgers, Bourbon, and Beer for a meal (Which was great).

Food was excellent, but service was poor. Waiter seemed confused, appeared infrequently, and mixed up our order with another patron's. Thus, it took about 45 minutes to get fed. However, as mentioned, the food was really great. The manager was very apologetic about the mix-up, so hopefully this is not a typical experience. I would give them another chance.

We loved the idea of locally sourced ingredients and the menu looked great, but execution was poor. It looked like a home cook’s attempt at restaurant dishes. Service was great and the cocktails were creative and delicious, but the place was empty on a Friday night for good reason.

We got a last-minute reservation for 2 on what should have been a very busy Saturday night due to the beautiful weather. It's possibly because of the location on the quiet end of One Loudoun, but also possibly because of the food. Our server was very good and attentive and even asked for my honest opinion on the soup I didn't finish. Truth is, we really wanted to love this place but agreed at the end of the meal that we probably won't go back. The cucumber soup had nice flavor but was very lumpy and unappealing. The pork chops were ordered medium and came out well-done. The peach chutney lacked flavor and was really mushy. The Brussels sprouts side was good and the highlight of the meal. We sat outside, which was very nice. Perhaps this is a better place to go for drinks. Cost of the meal for 2 with tip was about $100.

The place was so loud I couldn't hear the person at the other end of my table (for 8). Brunch menu was limited, & nothing for kids. Drink refill service was slow and not coordinated. French toast sticks were horrible, but my companion said eggs Benedict were good. Donut sundae was impressive. Overall, definitely not a place to go with a group if you want to be able to enjoy each others company. If you just want want to drink in a loud tavern with over priced food, this is a good place.

The food was good. I ordered salmon, it waa cooked perfectly as requested. I guess I am not used to being served only a protein in a restaurant. There was a tablespoon of corn relish on the side. So if you like to have a complete meal, you have to order a side separately.

The food was pretty good (not the eggs they were subpar); however, the service was not good. We made a reservation and had to wait 20-25 minutes to be sat due to them running behind even though we were told they were only running 15 minutes behind. It took awhile for a server to finally come to the table. Our drinks were forgotten, we received no free popcorn until after we started eating our meal, when we got our food we could not eat it because we had no silverware, and our daughter's meal wasn't put in so we had to wait additional time for that to come to the table. It appeared that they were understaffed and overbooked. A dining experience that should have been 1.25- maybe 1.5 hours was 2 hours and 10 minutes long.

despite arriving 15 minutes early for our reservation, our table was not ready until 50 minutes later. there was table turnover and lots of tables awaiting clearing/set up, but the front and wait staff was inept, keeping reservation-holders and walk-ins crowded in the entrance.

if the front of the house is this poorly managed, can only imagine the back (kitchen) is as well. cannot comment on food quality, because we left after waiting 30 min. and being told it would take at least another 15-20 min. before we could be seated. when we received a text message that our table was finally ready, we were already happily seated at another restaurant.

The food was excellent, but it wasn’t very hot. It seemed like it sat in the back for a few minutes before our server brought it to us. The waiter also forgot to put in the Bloody Mary I ordered, so I never got it. That being said, we really enjoyed our meals and all of the extra perks for Father’s Day!

We made reservations for Fathers Day. At the time we arrived with reservations we still had to wait approximately 15 minutes to be seated. The hostesses seamed confused on the seating arrangement. We were finally seated and it took another 10-15 minutes before a waitress stopped by our table. Then one finally did and just said I’ll be with you shortly. Another 5 minutes passed before she came back. Meanwhile there was another table who was right beside us who had been waiting even longer than we had. Once we were able to order things started flowing. The food was really delicious and we were overall happy with that. At the time we came in the place did not seem overwhelming busy. Was not impressed with the service and wait time.

Though the food was good, it is extremely overpriced. For 3 alcoholic drinks, 3 entrees, and 2 sides, it cost $180. Luckily, I've only been here for Father's day, not of my choosing.

The manager greeted us at check in. He was very polite. Once our server Chris came, the service was all down hill from there. No one got refills on drinks. My daughter asked for no ice and got it, but no one else that wanted it could get some. He went through the motions of asking if everything was okay, but walked by so quickly there was a breeze. Definitely didn't care of what the response might have been. I had to ask for the bill. It came, but then another employee had to take it so we could pay and leave. No empty plates were cleared and not until I had the check was anyone asked if they wanted desert. As we left, we found where Chris had gone. He was out front looking at pictures on a phone with some girl. I have to say that the food was very good and is what saved this review from being a one star.
