    The last time we were at this restaurant we had bad service but the food was very good, so we decided to give it another chance. We were NOT disappointed! Once again everything we ordered was delicious, but this time the service was up to par with the food. The last time must have been an off night, we will be back!

    I have been here several times. Most were very good. This past visit showed that Coopers Hawk has slipped. Service was lacking. Server tried to serve us the wine we ordered when we were halfway through our meal. We said no thanks! Server had to many tables. Never really came back to check on our meals. Manger came by we told him we had no wine. We waited then the server came back later and we said no thanks. Why didn't he get it ASAP ? Food quality was ok, not really hot. Not sure I will return. Can go to E&O for the same money and have a great meal.

    The noise level in this open two story restaurant is not good for conversations. Everyone is yelling over each other. Other Coopershawks are fine, so it's just this building. Service was rather poor this time, no soup ordered brought and waited 30 minutes for food to arrive at a not so hot temp. No one ever checked on us during the meal..I would have liked another water and others wanted another beverage. Food was fair..not the usual great tasting food. Highly disappointed in this trip and probably won't go back, even tho it's only a few miles from home, I'd travel the 10 miles one way to visit another location. Sorry, but that's the truth!

    Although the food was very tasty the filet was very small , did not seem like 7 oz. Thought some menu items were over priced. Our waitress and her service was very enjoyable. A little noisy and had to wait for a spot at the wine tasting bar. Bartender was very knowlegable and friendly though.

    Love Cooper's Hawk, although very noisy. There food is always consistently good and the service is attentive. Of course the wines are wonderful which is how my husband and I started dining at the restaurant. We since became wine members and have attended several of the special dinners. They are fantastic and we especially love learning about wine pairings. We would highly recommend this restaurant along with doing a wine tasting in the tasting room.

    Had a reservation at 4PM for 12 guests. Upon arrival at the restaurant, we were told our table was not ready. Then 10 minutes later we were told if we were not seated within the next 5 minutes, our table would be given away. Yet it wasn't ready?? The staff at the front desk were very very rude and unaccommodating. However, once we were (finally) seated, the servers who worked our table were excellent. All food was delivered quickly, the wine glasses were never empty, the pretzel bread kept coming (yum!), and everyone's meals were absolutely wonderful. We stayed through dessert and were even able to pay with separate checks. A perfect dinner except for the large party reservation.

    When we first arrived we were welcomed with some really great wine. We had a bit of a wait past our reservation I made it for 7 we didn't get seated till a little after 7:40. It seemed busy though. Once we got seated we were offered a free appitizer because of our wait which was appreciated. Our waiter was new but got everything right and did a good job. It was my first time having dinner at coopers hawk but I had beem to another location before for lunch. Both locations were really nice I had good expierences at both and will return sometime soon.

    The food is fantastic, so it is a shame that every time I visit this restaurant, the service is problematic. It isn't just slow. It is really slow. And you feel forgotten. Plus they struggle to get the orders right. Very disappointing from the perspective.

    Always interested in a glass (read bottle) of wine, I was disappointed to learn they serve nothing but their own wines. All was not lost. They do boast a broad variety of grapes and the the couple of glasses I tried were very good. The food was excellent - well prepared, presented and served. Overall a very good experience.

    OMG - this is a straight-up suburban-cougar-soccer-mom hangout! The food is under-seasoned, but not horrible. I had the Prime sandwich, and with the addition of a little salt, it was pretty tasty. The ahi tacos were bland, but the Mexican shrimp was good. Forget trying to get to bar in the wine tasting area unless you are wearing mom jeans and toting a Coach bag...it is ROUGH in there.

    1st time there - it was an amazing experience from the wine tasting through dinner. Doesn't happen often where something doesn't go wrong. Our waiter (Ricardo) was the best. Very attentive, explained everything and very professional. We also joined the club. The food was delicious. Steak cooked to perfection. Definitely going back soon.

    I just wrote a review of the South Barrington location and what a let down it was for our anniversary dinner. WOW what a turnaround at this location. Our server was excellent - and made our experience memorable. Attentive to our every need, friendly and accommodating. There was a little snafu with the cheese plate, she got it fixed and comped us the 'wrong' one. She went out of her way to split 2 entrees for 2 of us to share equally in the party. We were celebrating 2 birthdays and she made sure they were recognized with the birthday truffle and threw in an extra dessert for the table. Outstanding evening. I was saying that Coopershawk was going downhill, this staff changed my mind and I will bring my business there.

    I'm sad to say that this was not a good experience because as we were taking the first bites of our salads, our entrees were delivered. It was unbelievable how quickly they came out--though that's NOT what we wanted. It was a real disappointment and not what I'm used to when dining here. The food and wine are amazing! I just couldn't enjoy the meal the way I wanted to when it was all jumbled together.

Below average service; however the food was excellent (and wine) as always. Will return but take my chances on the wait staff....I've had better.
