This local restaurant was busy upon walking in, but right away I was given a spot and had the joy of checking out the chef's bar... a place to watch them cook every meal for hungry guests. The experience was lovely, the wait staff wonderful, and I did a mix of 3 small plates. It was "farm to table like"... More

The food is a solid 5. My friend and I shared the duck confit appetizer (divine) and we ordered separate entrees: steak frites and beef stroganoff. We loved it all. The desert, a cheesecake topped with candied oranges was delicious as well. Our server could have been more attentive and less focused on getting us out of there. The place... More

Yes it's a bit pricey but the food is fantastic. I ordered the plank seared duck and it was fantastic! The Bone Marrow was also delightful. The staff was very friendly and fun to talk too.

Wonderful eclectic taste. Superb wait staff. The veggies are almost worth making a meal out of except you would miss the delicious meat selections.

We were fascinated watching how the chef and his line cooks prepared all of these marvelous and innovative appetizers, salads and enteees. We ended up ordering the waygu beef... More

Would be a top hit in NYC or San Fran. It really does have an upbeat "buzz" -- lively but not too loud. Menu had fresh ingredients creatively prepared. New young chef is having fun. Trout an spatzel and lamb riblets were outstanding. The roasted apple clafoutis with ginger candamom ice cream was memorable. Great place to go waiting for... More

Real food but prepared and served so well...hard to find but worth every effort. Dinner and a movie next door will impress any intellectual foodie with sophistication.

I was in town with 2 coworkers and the hotel staff suggested that we try this place and I am so glad we listened. Our server Joel took great care of us from the time we were seated. He made great suggestions on appetizes, wine and entrees. The best thing I had was this potato appetizer thing, They called it... More

The Copper Onion is one of the new additions to the growing Utah foodie scene. Former NYC chef (and native Utahan) Ryan Lowder now brings his personal take on New American cuisine to his own kitchen with an approach inspired by his passion for Utah’s outstanding farmstead ingredients and his experience as a chef cooking his way through Barcelona, NYC and South America. The Copper Onion serves a wide array of vegetable side dishes and a menu designed to explore and share, with plates such as Ricotta dumplings with lemon, sage and brown butter and Braised Pork Belly with shaved Brussels sprouts and pickled celeriac. Entrees include Fresh house-made papparedelle with lamb ragout and Duck Confit with butternut squash and roasted mushroom caps. An insistent focus on the freshest and best is paramount; sausages and burgers are ground daily, bread is baked and ice cream is made in house, offering casual diners an exceptional experience at affordable prices.
