    Diner was very enjoyable and the drink list was satisfying. We were lucky to have made reservation because there was a waiting line. The sound level was noisy but it did help that we were against a window. I have had lunch here and I found that to be more enjoyable as it is less crowded and noisy. the lunch menu has a nice variety of choices and reasonably priced.

    Cooper's Hawk always offers a superb dining experience. The server we had was new but well-trained and personable. Our food was excellent although a true Thai chili sauce would be a much better accompaniment to the Thai lettuce wraps than the sauces they offer.

    We dined mid-afternoon before a concert at the Allstate Arena. The food and wine were excellent. Our part of three selected from the Healthy Selections section at the back of the menu and the portions were just right. We enjoyed the wines that came in the white wine flight very much. Our server had a good sense of humor and brought the check quickly when it was time to go.

    The food and service exceptional! I have never eaten anything here I didn't love. My favorite is still the short rib risotto. My husband had the fish n chips, my girls had the seared tuna which was fantastic and my other had the child's filet medallion with Mary's potatoes-her favorite. Overall no complaints, once again. Thank you!

    We like dining at Cooper's Hawk Winery and Restaurant in South Barrington. Will never go back to the one in Arlington Heights. The noise level made for a very poor dining experience, as did our service. it started with the hostess and finding a table, then the waiter was off into another table that was also so loud, we could hear what they said and we could hardly talk. The waiter thought it funny. Very poor, our guest thought so too.

    dessert
    Dined on 9/6/2014
    We had a wonderful dinner at Cooper's Hawk. We were celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary. My daughter wanted to surprise us and went to the restaurant and ordered us a piece of chocolate cake for dessert. The manager signed off on it and said that they do this all the time. She paid $8.00 for the cake. Well, we never got the cake for dessert. Our server asked us if we wanted dessert and left the dessert menu. He never said that dessert was ordered for us. My daughter felt terrible. She thought she was doing something special for us for our anniversary and it didn't happen.

    We went to Cooper's hawk on a Friday night with reservations and were seated quickly. The complementary valet parking was great since it was raining. For the price, the food was average. My steak was not cooked as I requested and instead of cooking a new one, they put my steak on the grill in the three pieces I had cut it in and gave it back to me. We also had to repeatedly ask for drink refills. We didn't see a waiter for very long periods of time and we usually aren't very demanding customers. We weren't drinking alcohol and I wondered if that was the reason since more money is probably made off of tables who are drinking. I also heard that this location is currently without a manager and that could explain it.

    Great food, great wine, friendly service. Not particularly well suited for a romantic dinner for 2 due to the wide open dining space, lack of tables for two, and the noise level. Food and wine were excellent though, prices are good, and we had a great time.

    We get to Cooper's Hawk at least once a month. Sometimes my wife and I have "date night" and just sit in the bar and have appetizers and wine. At least every six weeks we meet friends for dinner. It's always great, food is always super and I'm not a wine expert but I don't know how any wine can be better than CH Pinot Noir Lux!

    Our first visit was disappointing. Even with reservations, we had to wait a half an hour to be seated. A server spilled a drink on my wife and then later spilled sauce on her jacket. Accidents happen, but the server hardly seemed to care and offered no apologies. This visit redeemed itself. We still had to wait a while with reservations, but our server, Alberto, was top notch. And the food was great. We'll go back again.

    I always liked Coopers Hawk but the noise level, at the Arlington Heights location, was so loud that our party couldn't hear each other. I thought a Wednesday night would be quieter. The food and wine are good, but not worth the visit when the noise level is ridiculous!

    To start off with Coopers Hawk is one of my favorite restaurants. The food and wine are both excellent and I am also part of the wine club. However it seems to have terrible service anytime I go and sit in the dining room. Last night was exceptionally terrible. Our server, Angie S, seemed less than thrilled to be taking care of us. She never smiled, was cold, and lacked personality. When we went to pay the bill she walked past grabbed the book and ran our card. Sadly for her she had to repeat the transaction because I had $20 off for being a wine club member. Of course she would have seen that if she ran my wine club card which she did not. I had to have the manager add my points.

    We tend to frequent a different cooper's hawk and I must say that the noise level in AH is just awful! It is so loud in there its hard to hear yourself think. And no, I am not old either, they really need to do something about the noise. I will continue to dine at the other locations. Two thumbs down for Arlington Heights.

    The venue can accommodate very large groups and events. There are so many items on the menu there is something for everyone. I would recommend pairing down the food items on the menu and making them taste better. That also applies to all the wines that are made by Cooper's Hawk. The wines are not for a refined palate.

    Went here to use up our 1st anniversary gift card. While the prices are hefty, you get what you pay for. They let you taste the wines before you order them, and the food was outstanding. I will definitely come back, but only when I have the fund for it. :)

    This could be a great restaurant, but the noise level is completely overwhelming. We had a party of six and it was impossible to have a decent conversation because of the loudness in the the room. The food in quite good but unfortunately none of us will be returning to the Arlington Heights location because of the noise level.

    We had an early evening dinner (5:30) on a Friday night. By the time we left around 7 pm the place was quite busy. Service was great. We were never left unattended - several other servers helped bus the table, water glasses were kept filled, etc. Food was great! I had ginger soy salmon, my husband had the crab cakes. Would definitely recommend both. Between the two of us, we tasted four wine choices. The chardonnay and the barbera merlot blend were very good! Would go back again.
