The staff and food were great! I only wish we would have known that the restaurant closed at 8pm, I would have scheduled our reservation earlier as opposed to 7:30. We were waiting for our son who was held up in a meeting and the kitchen was set to close and we had just sat down 15 minutes prior. Again, I’m sure it was a COVID thing and not a restaurant issue. They were great and the food was wonderful. Would recommend and would definitely go back.

This has been my go to neighborhood restaurant for nearly a decade but things are a bit different now during pandemic days. I typically just show up anytime and can get a table. This past Friday, I came and was turned away stating that I needed a reservation. That was disappointing but I understood so I made a reservation for the following evening. Currently, there’s a 90min seating maximum which I’m not really a fan of. The food felt rushed and my crab cakes didn’t seem cooked well enough. In fact, the following morning I was really sick from eating them so I think I’ll hold off until life is back to normal. I don’t want to be rushed through my meal which is typically $100+.

Food was very good and eating outside by the fireplace was perfect, and plenty warm.

Our server, Holly, was outstanding

Overall I was pleased with our Thanksgiving dinner. I was most disappointed that the turkey was processed meat and not fresh roasted turkey. It did not stand up to the quality expected from a fine dining establishment where steaks are freshly prepared.

We loved Copper Canyon Grill. The food was incredibly delicious. Everyone must try the ceasar salad. Best salad I've ever had. The service was pleasant, cheerful and very accommodating. We received our food very quickly after ordering. Items are priced a little higher here but it is well worth it in my opinion. We will absolutely be going back! 🙂

Dining out during COVID-19 is difficult, but this restaurant made me feel safe and comfortable while enjoying my rare outing with my partner. The staff is very friendly and professional, food and drinks were delicious, and I look forward to my future visits here.

My only complaint is that the lighting was very dim for my preference. My partner and I were celebrating our anniversary and wanted to take photos to help us capture the moment. I felt like a nuisance having to use the flash on my phone to take photos since I didn't want to disturb the other patrons. But overall, this is just a minor inconvenience for an otherwise amazing experience!

The woman who turned out to be our waitress wouldn’t let one of our party into the restaurant because it was five minutes before opening. The member of our party asked if he could wait in the vestibule, since it was cold and rainy. She acquiesced. She should have offered that right away, since it was crummy weather. Not a welcoming attitude.

The hostess was pestering us about masks, while my husband was putting on his mask. I could tell she was eager to call him out for not putting it on fast enough—a little power trip. We put on our masks, walked about 15 feet to our table and took off our masks since we could now have water. Phew! Glad the hostess gave us a hard time, because we could’ve killed someone during that 15-foot walk.

The woman who didn’t want to let my brother into the restaurant turned out to be our server. My brother told me the story after we all sat down at the table. I gave her the benefit of the doubt, but she gave us service with an attitude. I thanked her for bringing something (cant remember what it was) and she didn’t say anything back. Rude. She didn’t fill our water. My husband had to get up, go to the supplies area, take a water pitcher and refill our glasses.

We came to celebrate a birthday, but we were told there was no type of cake. We sang happy birthday to our mom and she blew out the candle on the table.

The pot pie was entirely too peppery, and this is coming from pepper fans.

Crab cake was very good. Can get this at the other location.

Fried chicken salad was good, but needed onion. I requested it from the server and got it.

Overall, very adversarial, cold experience. Won’t be back to this location.

I had a wonderful dinner at Copper Canyan. My mother took my father, boyfriend, and I out for our birthday's. All of the food was delicious and our waiter was phenomenal. The only thing i did not like was the lighting. It was too dark in the restaurant. We had to use the light on our cellphones to see the menu. After a while your eyes adjust to the low lighting level, but for the first 10 minutes it was hard to see. We all agreed the food was awesome and we would definitely come back. The also did a wonderful job of adhering to covid and social distancing protocols.

Silver Spring is the meeting point for me to visit with my Mom, sister and brother so we always meet at Copper Canyon.

The restaurant is expanding but had outdoor seating. We sat near the fireplace outside and it was nice and cozy. Service was great and so was the food. Always have leftovers.

The service was friendly and efficient. The outside dining space was outstanding! However, the interior renovations which have seemingly been put on hold because of the pandemic did not help with the ambiance. From my observation, the price has gone up, causing the value to go down. There is a reduced menu in place and since everyone in my party had the same entree there is little I can comment on, except the meatloaf, which was fair at best. Sadly, Copper Canyon has not improved of late, but then what restaurant has actually improved during the pandemic?
