    We always enjoy a bottle of wine with dinner, this time it was the Lux Pinot Noir, very good. We started with the Over the Border egg rolls, one of our favorite appetizers. The warm pretzel bread is always great. For entrees, one of us had the NY strip, which was delicious and cooked to perfection. The other was a surf & turf with salmon and Parmesan crusted medallions. The salmon was slightly dry, the medallions, perfect. The wasabi potatoes were disappointing in that you could barely taste the wasabi, the potatoes themselves were good.

    I loved the egg roll starter! Paired with a glass of the Lux Cabarnet I almost don't need a meal. I enjoyed the BBQ chicken salad. Can always find something good to eat reasonable priced. Service was excellent today - non-obtrusive but there if you need anything.

    This was our first time at this Coopershawk location. It was very busy but we were seated on time. Our server was great, the wine and food was exceptional but it was much too loud in there. We could hardly hear each other talk. That was the only drawback.

    We went there for our anniversary but i forgot my wallet i told the waitress i have a copy of id my in the car she just shook her head then after i told her i have a picture of it on my phone she shook her head again and said if you're going to a winery you have to have your id and left, i didn't wanna leave my wife sitting alone for 30 mins to go bring my id. I understand she was doing her job but she wasn't polite at all, i felt she was saying ´i don't believe you and we don't need your business', but the worse was when another person on the next table ordered his drink the waiter didn't ask him for an id so we just walked out because her attitude and she didn't even say anything or called a manager. She didn't introduce herself either.

    I'm a wine club member at Cooper's Hawk and enjoy my experiences there. We prefer the atmosphere in the Arlington Heights location over the South Barrington spot. Have been to the Burr Ridge location only once and it was fine. In every case except one, the food and service have been outstanding. On our last visit, the pork chop looked phenomenal when it arrived, but was dry. The service was a tad bit slow, only in that the table wasn't bussed from course to course in a timely manner. Wine snobs may not agree, but the wines are good, as far as I'm concerned. I'm almost always taken aback by how very loud the atmosphere is. It's sometimes difficult to talk.

    The ambiance and atmosphere was very energetic, vibrant, and fit for a group of friends having a drink and dining. Great house wine list. The service was good, but suffered due to how busy the place was: we were seated 30 minutes after our reservation time, once seated - our assigned waiter(ess) never showed up, we had to ask a different waiter to take our order. Overall, 7/10. Food was great, but nothing special. Recommended.

    There were 6 of us Saturday night. The food overall was good, (3 of us split a bottle of wine,the other 3 had cocktails). Our server was almost too quiet, spoke only when he had to, not personable. We waited 8-10 minutes before our server took our drink order. The drinks arrived at different times. The appetizers were delicious and arrived promptly. Our entrees also arrived at different times. Someone ordered pork medallions and instead received pork chops. When mentioning the error, we were told they were no longer available. (Why was it on the menu? Why didn't our server tell us?) Someone else ordered the short ribs and received a different short ribs entree. Apparently there were two, yet the server never asked which entree was wanted.

    This is the first time that I have been to the Arlington Heights Cooper's Hawk restaurant (I've been to their restaurant in Wheeling). For such a big restaurant, I was surprised at how busy it was on a Tuesday night. Their menu is many great options from sandwiches, pastas and meat entrees. The prices are reasonable and the service was excellent. All in all, a great dining experience.

    My boyfriend and I got a gift card here for Christmas last year and so we decided to FINALLY take advantage and treat ourselves to a nice dinner. We had reservations for 7:45 and arrived at 7:35 but were not seated until 8. We enjoyed the atmosphere in the bar until our table became available. Our server was fantastic - very friendly and accommodating. The food was hot, delicious, and the steak was melt in your mouth tender. We got the bacon-wrapped shrimp and two separate entrees and we were both stuffed at the end of dinner. My only complaint is that it was pretty cold in the room we were seated in at the beginning of our meal but seemed to warm up by the end. Overall, it was great and we will definitely return!

    Waste of time making a reservation as we had to wait a half hour for a table. Once we were seated there were seven empty tables in our general area - why the half hour wait? No sign of the waiter for about 5 minutes and then his attention was sporadic at best. When he took our order he asked if we wanted pretzel bread. We said yes and it finally came out as we were finishing our salads! I ordered Betty's potatoes and it took three tries to get the correct order! You cannot hear yourself think in this restaurant it is so noisy!

    Service was ok. Got there 10 min before my reservation. Went to host station to let them know I arrived. They told me to come back at 8:30. No appreciation for visiting their place. Then wait stuff could make more afford to stop by table more often to check. Was not asked if wanted more drinks or anything. Will not be back at this location. South Barrington is much better.

    I love the food and wine at Cooper's Hawk. The appetizers are so delicious they make a great meal. My favorite is the Cooper's Hawk Sampler and the Drunken Mexican Shrimp. My favorite entrées include the crab cakes, filet mignon, and salmon. The service is hit and miss. That goes for both the servers and hosts. I always make reservations and sometimes when I get there and give them my name and tell them we have reservations they tell us they'll be right with us other times they act so inconvenienced. Some servers are really nice making it a great experience others want you out of there as soon as possible. If I'm ordering appetizers, dinner, dessert, and several bottles of wine for 2-6 people, please don't expect me to leave in 45 minutes.

    Return visit here, last time had a few issues. This time really made up for it. When we were originally seated this time the air conditioning was blowing on us. We were quickly reseated. Server was great. Very attentive. Offered pretzel bread 3x! My steak was underdone so he quickly took back. Apologized several times. Cut dessert in half and other extra efforts.

    We have been to both the Arlington Heights and South Barrington locations. The food is always good and the wait staff attentive. As with most large, open restaurants, the noise level is greater than I would like and the only negative comment I have about this location. Unfortunately, the noise level rating here does not have a Loud category, only Energetic and I don't really know how to interpret that description so I have rated this moderate.

    Decided to have dinner w/family including 2 small children. The restaurant was busy but not too bad. Waitress took our order quickly and that's when everything went downhill. Waitress and mgr both came over several times to apologize for the lengthy wait for our food. Ultimately it did come, but not hot for several of us. When asked and we commented about that and our denial to return the food to the kitchen (by that time it was getting too long for the kids) they did remove the cost of those dishes, which we were extremely appreciative of. This has been the 3rd time dining here, and each time there was an issue. Probably won't go back.

    THE FOOD WAS GOOD BUT IT DEFINITELY COULD HAVE BEEN SERVED A BIT HOTTER! MY ASPARAGUS WAS COLD WHEN I RECEIVED IT BUT THE MEAT WAS SERVED WARM. I MENTIONED THIS TO OUR WAITRESS. THE NOISE LEVEL WAS VERY LOUD, AND I WOULD NOT CALL IT ENERGETIC BUT LOUD!! IT WAS HARD TO HEAR MY HUSBAND AND HE SAIDTHAT HE COULD NOT HEAR ME EITHER. I LIKED THE WINE LIST AND ENJOYED THE CHOICE THAT I MADE. WE PLAN ON GOING BACK FOR EITHER DINNER OR LUNCH. I DON'T THINK THAT CHILDREN WOULD ENJOY THIS ATMOSPHERE UNLESS IT MIGHT BE AT LUNCHTIME.
