Love the concept (wine bar, dinner, etc). ALWAYS crowded...this newest location needs about triple the space as compared to their other locations. Food quality has been good and value of wine selections is great.

I was in town on business and looking for a nice restaurant for dinner. The hotel where I stayed recommended Cooper's and I admit I was skeptical at first but glad we decided to try it. We were very pleasantly surprised. This is truly an upscale restaurant with very high quality food. I cannot say I was all that impressed with the wines but we were able to sample a couple of varieties and found one that was suitable for our tastes.

This is a high class restaurant with affordable prices and friendly staff. Food always seems to be of the highest quality and the presentation is out standing. Plus, complementary wine doesn't hurt either. Not much in this area will be able compare to the standards and flare of C.H.

Perfect for that special evening away from the kids, or an afternoon with the girls.

I, personally don't recommend C.H. for children. It's not made to cater to children. Neither you or the children will have much fun.

I just have to say, "I really love the Fine dining at C.H. with afforable prices"

South lake had a trashy feel before coopers came along. Kudos to the mall management for upgrading the atmosphere and putting in an A+ restaurant. Coopers has a fine dining atmosphere and they know their wine! There is a variety of food choices for all budgets and taste buds. And every meal is matched with a wine on the menu. They have a little store you can browse in also. No complaints.

Not much in this area can compare to the standards here.

The wine tasting is a must. For only 7 dollars, you get to try 8 unique wines, amounting to about 2 glasses. The food was also great, with a very broad selection. The service was above average.
If you are going any time during the weekend, you will need a reservation if you don't want to wait 1-2 hours. The shop in the restaurant was cute.

My only disappointment was with the appetizer pricing. I expected all entrees to be in the 18-30 dollar range, but appetizers seemed to start at around 10 bucks and up. While the options sounded interesting, you can get a full burger or sandwich for only a bit more, arguably not making the appetizers worth an extra splurge.

Overall, I would compare this to The Cheesecake Factory, only with an emphasis for wine over cheesecake. Very good.
