We made reservations, got here in time, and were seated immediately. The appetizers came out within a reasonable length of time, but when we ordered pizzas and sandwiches the long wait began. Other tables that were seated after us were served and in fact one table actually finished their meal before we were served. Our waitress seemed baffled. About 40... More

There are lots of amazing dining options around Cayuga Lake and we appreciate that you chose to dine with us. We are sorry that you had a bad experience at our restaurant. We employ high school and college kids (purposely) to provide summer jobs. They are not professionals and as such our customers should feel free to provide realtime feedback... More

We had lunch here as part of an experience the Finger Lakes tour. The food was great and the unique copper oven made excellent pizza. I was surprised at the fact our lunch service seem to be disorganized given the planned visit as part of the tour. It was a busy Saturday so that may have been why. Overall a... More

Outstanding location on the lake, great service and wood fired pizza. Also visit the winery! Enjoyed the local wine and beers on the outside deck.

Limited but distinctive menu, somewhat small portions, especially for the price. Service/cooking was slow, but the food was very good. Very nice location to sit on a nice day, if you have the time and the money.

The wood fire pizzas are fantastic!!! Highly recommend the summer squash pizza! Something to keep in mind if it is raining they close due to the pizza oven being outside

We stopped at The Copper Oven looking for good pizza. It wasn't quite what we were expecting, but the food was good. It took a long time to get waited on, and then our food came quickly, before we received our drinks. The waitresses were friendly, though, and the food was tasty. There were four pizzas to choose from, and... More

My husband and I, and another couple, were staying at the campground just up the road, and I was researching good places to eat where we could bring our dogs. Every July, we go to Grapehounds, a wine tasting event where we bring our Greyhounds. Finding dog friendly eating options isn't easy. But when I called the Copper Oven, they... More

We sat on the deck sipping wine, while a guitar player performed classic acoustic songs. Vineyards sprawled over the hill to Cayuga Lake, and our server brought out our crispy wood-fired pizza. We had a fabulous dinner at The Copper Oven.

Beautiful view of Cayuga Lake and nice deck to enjoy your meal. The cheese and meat tray with flat bread was excellent. With a glass of wine from the winery you can't go wrong. The pizzas were tempting ... maybe our next trip.

Great unique menu and pizza ideas. Tasty fruit drinks. Friendly staff. I'm a local but my first trip to The Copper Oven was this past summer. I need to get out more. The Finger Lakes has so much to see and do.
