Copper at Dorset hosted our office Holiday Party and they went above and beyond to make the night exceptional. The cocktails, food, atmosphere and staff were great...

Brad Worthen

Pomerleau Real Estate's annual Holiday Party at Copper was an outstanding evening of excellent food and beverages, professional staff attending to everyone's needs and an extensive holiday ambiance complete with beautiful floral decorations and a big Christmas tree too! I highly recommend Copper at Dorset!

Recently shared a Tapas Night. Food was great! Burnt Chicken Ends is a misnomer and needs a new name! I was skeptical about ordering this dish given the name but it was on of my favorites served with the best sticky white rice. Scallops were perfectly seared. Tangerine Flan was a treat. Chef Jason was very helpful with plate descriptions and assurances. Great space and well-lit parking. Can't wait for the next Wednesday Tapas Night.

Jordan Park
