    We went here on a Saturday night (had reservations). We were seated quickly and our server, Chris, was very attentive. He made some recommendations which were outstanding. All of our dishes were excellent and prompt. Would go back here in a heartbeat. Only drawback is parking since it is at Brookfield Square. Definitely recommend reservations on the weekend.

    The food was phenomenal and the staff excellent. I deal with food allergies and the wait staff and kitchen staff were knowledgeable and very accommodating. I've had their Short Rib Risotto prior to an allergy diagnosis and now after - it did not disappoint! Just as good as I remembered - even when they prepared it without dairy for me! This experience was a gift - dining out is not as easy as it used to be, but I will definitely be returning.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013

    Once meals were passed out she came back and asked how our meals were before we had even tried them. Never returned after that; my meal was very tough (pork). Never could find her for water. Manager did come by at end of dining experience and was very kind and did not charge me for the pork. I've had the pork in the past and it has always been so tender; very surprised and disappointed.

    The food was delicious. The portions are sized evenly with what you pay. The Caesar and wedge salad were a great choice, in particular. It's a little pricier than what we normally go to but we will definitely come back for another date night and/or special occasion.

    Have had dinners at Cooper's Hawk before and it's always been crowded. This was the first time for lunch and it was equally as crowded, so the noise level was energetic +, due in part to the high ceilings. Reservations are definitely recommended for lunch (as well as dinner). Great that the menu had lunch size portions.

    As wine club members, we came for a quiet Sunday night dinner, only to realize it was Dine in Brookfield. While these type of promotions are a fun time to try a new restaurant, Cooper's Hawk is our standby treat. Our server was nice, but I was disappointed in the experience overall: -No salmon left, so I couldn't try the promo menu, nor could I order my usual salmon, no alternatives offered -No pretzel bread left, so no bread basket, again no alternative offered -Wasn't able to use a wine club bottle on a few glasses of the barrel wine that was featured (at least our server checked) The food that I did order was delicious as usual; I just wish they made me feel special! Cancelling the wine club.

    The food was very good as were the drinks. Desert was excellent! Unfortunately, as with many popular restaurants, the noise level was way too loud for us. The times for enjoying a nice quiet dinner are gone. One has to talk very loud to be heard across the table. It is a sign of the times; but it is an unfortunate sign. A very nice restaurant, but becoming too loud with conversation.

    We've been to Cooper's many times. I feel the service is on a downward trend. Plates take forever to clear, food spends too much time under the heat lamp. The food is only slightly above average. I think they try and be too creative with their entrees and often miss the mark. That said, we love how they are quick to offer a tasting of any wine they have. Two free tastings per month with a wine club membership is something we love. Great place to go with 4-6 people for a tasting and dinner. We'll probably keep going back until we have a really bad experience.

    Had a last minute family dinner on a Friday night. Booked through open table (highly recommended for this place). Were seated promptly, and delighted to find that we had a waiter, Gregory, who we have had before. Some just ordered appetizers, I had the mustard crusted pork, recently revised, which was as good a piece of meat as i have had in a long time. Service was outstanding, we really like Gregory and suggest you ask for him. Personable and professional. We highly recommend Copers as a place to have on the regular dining circuit.

    In August my wife and I stopped in Coopers Hawk for a wine tasting and fell in love with the place. We had dinner that night and were sold, we joined the wine club. Since then we have attended a special event and dined several times. Each time we were very happy with the food, service, and wine. We consider this our go to place for us to enjoy wine, food, and each other.

    I found Cooper's Hawk last year while searching for a nice spot to take my wife out to dinner for her birthday. We did a wine tasting beforehand then went to dinner. The whole experience from start to finish was amazing and we have returned 2 times since then (our anniversary and her birthday this year). The staff at the wine bar are extremely friendly and knowledgeable and are very patient with wine tasting "noobs" such as my wife and myself. The wait staff is also friendly with a vast knowledge of every item on the menu and they always make sure we are well taken care of. I plan on returning here again for our anniversary next year and I recommend this place to anyone I can tell. I'll say again, "I LOVE COOPER'S HAWK!"

    We had the most friendly and informative waitress. I went with a couple of friends and we were catching up and she didn't rush us at all. She may have been the best waitress I have ever had. And, on top of that, the food was absolutely delicious and the wine was the best. It was a great night out. We did the tasting room before dinner which was great fun as well. The bartender in the bar area was super friendly too. It was a great girls night out.

    We had made a reservation for 7 pm. Our table ended up not being ready until almost 7:30. While waiting we enjoyed looking at the store and even picking up some treats to take home. The staff noticed that we had been waiting and brought us some free wine to sample. When we got to our table another server had noticed that we hadn't been helped yet. She then brought over two more samples of wine, water, and pretzel bread. She ended up becoming out server. Her name was Kristi and she was great! Very knowledgeable and more than nice. She was attentive to all of our needs and didn't try to rush anything. I think the staff handled the whole situation beautifully. I would definitely recommend!!

    To go just for the wine would be an excellent but then try the food and you will be blown away. The cheese plate and the short ribs were amazing and I will be going back for those alone. On top of some amazing wine, this is a place that is a new favorite of mine. Must try more items on the menu.

    Very disappointed with the service in the tasting room at the Brookfield location. Being wine club members we have had the pleasure of having the outstanding staff in the Souht Barrington location serve us in the tasting room. The tasting room staff in Brookfield was rude and did not pay attention to other guests waiting in the tasting area. As we stood at the tasting counter, the staffer never acknowledged us and even asked us to move down so that she could help another customer. So not the service we are used to . We sat in the bar for dinner and our server was there was excellent, however, the food was not good. The steaks were overcooked and the salad was watery. I would have to say that I will not go back.

    There is nothing special about either the wine or food. The wine we had was very weak and we felt it was actually watered down. Food was okay, not outstanding. You could get same or better food for the same money elsewhere. WAY too noisy. Even though we had reservation we had to wait, as they didn't anticipate the need for additional staff on Sweetest Day (which I could care less about). We went there for our Anniversary, but had to wait at least an additional 15 minutes while the staff looked on and took other later reservations into the restaurant. Coopers Hawk would not be on my top 10 list. And I would not recommend it to anyone, nor would we go back.

    I received a gift certificate for Cooper's Hawk so I decided to treat a few friends to lunch. I was so surprised to find a wine tasting bar and shop when we walked in the door. It was nice to spend time there while waiting for a table, which was only a few minutes as it turned out. They allow you to sample wine at your table before you choose what to order - another surprise! The food was fantastic, portions were just right, and the service was great! I have already recommended Cooper's Hawk to friends and family and I will definitely be returning there.

    Went to Milwaukee on business with a coworker. We planned ahead to visit a few restaurants while here. Cooper's Hawk was not one of them but was highly recommended by a local... What a fantastic meal we had! We liked it so much we cancelled our plans for our second night at another restaurant and went back to Cooper's Hawk. I will say the service wasn't quite the same the second dinner but the food and wine paring was great. If you go, ask to sit in Montrell's section... I am not easily impressed by servers but he was exceptional!

    Wife had crusted boneless pork chop special. Absolutely loved it. The Shiraz/zin blend wine was out of this world. We shared a fried calamari appetizer. Comes with three sauces. The aioli was the best. The sriracha was a bit spicy and the tomato sauce was a bit smokey. I could have used some plain marinara sauce. The complimentary pretzel bread is fantastic. I could have filled up on that. I had two additional appetizers for my entree. Got the crab/lobster bisque and the flatbread margherita pizza. The bisque is better next door at Bravo! where it's thick and creamy. The CH bisque was a bit less thick (not watery). It had plenty of meat in it. The flatbread pizza was good - albeit not terribly hot. Good pour on the bourbon.

    Coopers Hawk is a great combination of food and wine, creating a nice value proposition. The Meritage was well balanced and went well with the risotto and the beef tenderloin. The chopped salad was also a table favorite. We look forward to returning frequently to explore more wine and food. The service was also better than most - attentive but not intrusive.

    we've had good experiences at Cooper's Hawk in the past, but this time I really wished we went elsewhere. They sat us in a far back corner despite having made the reservation well in advance, and the restaurant just felt loud and crowded and our server was just kind of abrasive. The food was good as always, but basically just not an enjoyable experience for the price.
