This bar is warm, inviting and classic. Always packed after 5 p.m., be ready to pounce on a bar seat or wait for a table. The wait, however, is worth it. Fireplaces are set behind the marble bar, high, comfortable seats at both high-top, lounge and table levels and fast service from knowledgeable bartenders. This is the perfect spot for an after work glass of wine and cheese.

The staff here is amazing - they're a little bit older, but they make you feel super comfortable and like they're your aunt or uncle. The food items here are very pricey for what they are. But we LOVED the tenderloin carpaccio ($26) and ahi tuna tartare ($21) and always come back for it.

Food - excellent. Cocktails - well-poured. Service - absolutely, positively sucks. Waiter could not have been more inattentive or uninterested in his customers. Disappeared for 15 minutes after we asked for check. Asked second time, no joy. Had to walk to hostess station to ask another waiter chatting with her to do it. That worked. It shouldn't have to come to that. Definitely not Fairmont standards.Very disappointing.

While the food was delicious, the drinks were actually terrible. The chairs looked beat up and compared to the great oak bar rooms in other cities like San Francisco, the venue deserved a lot more love and care for such a special setting. The person at the door did not greet anyone who was not in a business suit; on a Friday afternoon in August 90% of the customers were not in suits. He spent most of the time on the phone or talking to the other bar staff, completely ignoring the people who came through the bar entrance, which made them (and us) feel very uncomfortable and unwelcome. Not even a nod and a smile. We were staying at the hotel and we were so disappointed we vowed not to return to the bar (we love the hotel), which also doubles as the hotel's only restaurant for breakfast and lunch. My husband's margarita came in a scotch glass and tasted terrible. My bloody mary didn't even come with celery just a lemon wedge. Vastly disappointing after all of the rave reviews from many of the travel sources; cost $ 70.00 for 2 mediocre drinks, a steak sandwich (which was delicious), and a cup of soup. Likable waitperson, but overall, just expected a more special experience, especially for the money. Not recommended.

The bar here is so gorgeous that I would come for it alone. Stepping into the restaurant/kitchen area is like stepping into a begone era of decadence with its high ceiling, decorated walls and big leather bar seats. I've only been to the bar for drinks and snacks and can highly recommend both. We ordered bread expecting the usual crispy cut slices but got a freshly pan baked loaf smothered in butter - very delicious! The staff are amazingly attentive and friendly as well.

Fancy pants bar off the Fairmont Copley Hotel. Usually I only hit it up for a quiet, sophisticated night of drinking wine, but feel free to grab a spirit or beer. The ambiance is high-end, upscale, like the place you would take your parents after getting your MBA or taking your colleague out for retirement.

We went for Sunday brunch with 2 friends. The service was incredibly slow and not attentive (ex: our water was filled only twice, despite it being empty 90% of the meal). The food was mediocre. I had an egg frittata that's only flavor was the goat cheese on top (which the waitress confused with parmesan when I asked whether there was cream in the dish). My fiance had the corned beef hash, which wasn't very flavorful either. The servings were small, considering the price...which is okay if the quality isn't that of a well plated Denny's meal. Perhaps lunch is better, as it started to fill up as we were leaving...or maybe people were just coming for drinks and the nice decor.
