First let me say I am a wine snob. I wasn't expecting much from their wine it was just ok. If I return I would drink beer or a martini. However the food was really good. Started with the flatbread with roasted vegetables and goat cheese very tasty! It came out super quick so we told our waitress we weren't... More

I chose Cooper's Hawk because it was highly recommended by my friend. We were prompty seated at 5 pm and our server was very knowledgeable about the many wines offered. We both chose a semi-sweet white which was very good. The average price for a glass of wine is $7.00 which is not bad for a fine restaurant. I also... More

Visited with my Dad in January. Went about 4 PM in the afternoon. When we got there the waiter explained they only had one soup which was not quite done yet. Our server was good. No problem there. We ordered the soup - a clam chowder. We had to laugh as it was all broth. I've never had all broth... More

I have been to this location before and service has been better. The food was good, but our server did not seem that interested in our party when we did not order alcoholic beverages. I felt as if we were rushed through our meal. For the price I did not feel the service was worth my time.

Met here yesterday with my sisters, daughter in laws, and nieces. Had a great time...good service once seated. Everyone had a great meal. The reception area was crowded and a bit out of control but the server came out from behind the counter to serve us wine tastes. My only criticism is the wine I had was not very good... More

I thought that maybe my first attempt at this location was just a bad night for the server and the chef... so, I gave them a second chance, but I sadly discovered that apparently, this the norm. If you like sitting at the bar and selecting from their wine list, you may possibly enjoy yourself, but the bland and uninspired... More

i have bee on taking customers to Cooper's Hawk in several years and had my first really bad experience last night. The food has always average but the service excellent. The young lady at the host desk changed that last night. If you are having a business dinner where some of your guest may be a little late I would... More

The wine at Coopers Hawk- just not good!! My GF is a big fan, and I respect the niche market that CH has figured out. We did the tasting before dinner- and 3 of the wines were just awful. But the food is actually quite good.

We love this place, it is just tough to get into. Unless you make a reservation atleast 3 weeks in advance plan on waiting an hour or two. We try to get there early and find a table in the bar area. The food is excellent and very consistent. The wine is average but very reasonably priced, especially if you... More
