We stopped in for lunch today at The Copper Onion. It is a cute place with outdoor seating. I enjoyed the Saag Paneer which was served with delicious coconut rice shaped and cooked like arancini...absolutely delicious combo! The service was outstanding. Wonderful lunch and will definitely return on a future trip to SLC.

My party shared several dishes for dinner with Ammie as the server. Not most refined, but very nice.

I have had some spectacular meals at Copper Onion and some significant disappointments. I find the menu to be hard to predict. The burger is certainly very good, although there are other burgers in town that are possibly better at half the price. Turns out the cow species does not matter than much in a burger. In a steak, maybe,... More

Very good food. Nice place. Cute and quaint. Tables were a little close together and I could see it being uncomfortable if at full capacity. Staff was better than average but not great. They were super interested in those who appeared to be regulars - much less attentive to us. This was our second visit and we will likely be... More

I have been reluctant to try this restaurant as the reviews have been mixed, the online menu has never really enticed me and someone's opinion whom I respect when it comes to food was negative. We gave it a shot one night out on the town. My husband had the black pepper mussels which we so-so - nothing spectacular in... More

Delicious food but I could do with lower costs. The service was decent for a group of 7 and the place was busy as can be.

We ordered some of the more eclectic options from the menu and were not disappointed at all. The food was fantastic and the service was great.

The food here is excellent. We had the goat cheese salad, the trout, the leek pasta, and a piece of the cheesecake, and loved every single bite. This has definitely become our fave SLC restaurant.

Enjoyed a very memorable beef stroganoff - perfectly al dente fresh pasta, chunks of tender beef, tasty mushrooms. Cheesecake was excellent too!

Description
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.
