  • Won't Be Back
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/31/2014
    I was very disappointed, particularly in the service. Something is definitely wrong when your wine is served midway through dinner in a Winery & Restaurant. Dirty appetizer dishes were left on our table when the salad was served. The food was mediocre at best. I will not recommend this restaurant to anyone, and I definitely will not be back. It is very noisy, not energetic.

    Food was great (we got pasta dishes and the fish taco appetizer), the drinks were great (we did not get wine, we went with mixed drinks), and the service was great. A little loud, could use noise partitions in the dinning area, not a place for a quiet dinner, but my wife and I greatly enjoyed our evening.

    Enjoyed the dinner and like the fact that we could talk without a lot of loud music playing. We go to dinner with friends so we can enjoy each others company and not have to yell to be heard. Would have liked to have been able to buy the wine to take home that was in the barrel that evening.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/30/2014
    I've dined here 3 times for dinner and the food is phenomenal every time. My only small complaint was that my chocolate bread pudding was cold last visit, and this dessert has to be warm to taste amazing. The service was above par- my friend asked if she could change her dessert bc she tasted alcohol in it (pretty sure it stated it was cooked with run on the menu) but the server and management were still completely apologetic, brought her a different dessert of her choosing and comped it. This place has become my official special occasion and "just 'cause" favorite restaurant in Cincinnati.

    Great gourmet American food! Wonderful service. Pairing entrées with wine. Nice contemporary dining room. They also have a wine tasting room. They sell their wine along with wine paraphernalia and gourmet snack food that goes well with wine. They have wine tastings. An overall delightful experience!

    We loved Coopers Hawk, but this last visit has us shaking our heads. Poor service, questioned our $20.00 wine club reward, we probably won't be back,except for the fantastic wine. Note, wine glasses should not be cleaned with bleach.

    Our server John was absolutely fabulous. Took time to explain everything, since it was our first time. Wine and appetizer was great. I made the wrong choice of the Cesar Salad. The pesto dressing was way too strong, and not at all what I was expecting. LOVE basil, but not on cesar salad. John offered to bring something else, but I declined, and left the entire salad. The pretzel bread was great.

    We had a HORRIBLE experience our first time going there back in January so we thought it's been almost 9 months so we'll give it another chance. Our reservation on Friday 8/23 was at 8:15 ...we were sat around 8:45. It took a bit to actually get our server. He brings out the bread and butter and there's a giant, dark black hair sticking straight out of the butter. The waiter dropped it off and left so we had to wait another 5+ minutes for him to come back in eye view to wave him down to replace it. The dinner was good but after finding a hair in your food, it kind of ruins your appetite. I'm not sure if we'll be back...

    We were seated at least 10 minutes before a waitress (not ours) came to our table. Our waitress eventually showed up. We were celebrating a birthday so we all (table of 5) ordered drinks, appetizers, dinner and dessert. Our meal ended up taking over 2 hours which was way too long. Our waitress rarely stopped by the table to check on us. When asked for a water refill (after flagging her down), she rolled her eyes and eventually came back with a pitcher. When desserts arrived, one order was incorrect. She stomped off and brought the correct dessert about 10 minutes later. By this time, we could not wait to leave. It certainly was not a pleasant dining experience. No manager came thru to speak with.

    This was my third time visiting Cooper's Hawk (I joined their wine program the very first visit!), the first two times were for lunch and this times was a weekend night dinner to celebrate our anniversary - it did not disappoint. Food was fabulous, service was great and the wine, as always was perfect. Stopped on the way out for an additional wine tasting and to pick up our wine. They exchanged a couple of our wine club choices and we were on our way. Wonderful evening!

    Tried Cooper's Hawk for the first time, excellent food and great wine! The tasting room is very pretty, however, we were sat in a drab room (sunroom-ish) for dinner. We felt unnaturally secluded from the rest of the restaurant and the overall vibe of the building. Other than that our waiter and wine attendant were very helpful. Went home with four bottles of wine!

    So pleased that we were not rushed...we were actually there for 4 hours...our choice! Appetizers and drinks as we waited for 2 of our party members...Then dinner and dessert! 8 of us at a round table was perfect! Our server, Stacy, absolutely the best server I have ever had! She did not write down ONE thing and remembered every item, without fail, even with a few special requests! Very attentive but not annoying!! No one had an empty glass and she did not spend a long time trying to up sell or over sell us on anything!

    The menu - both wine & food - was great, service was attentive and the décor was up to darte. but I was there with 5 other friends and we couldn't hear from one end of the table to the other. That was very disappointing. It may be better for a couple or small group but if you value conversation at dinner it's a challenge.

    The food is amazing and even more so is the fact that we have loved every bottle of wine! Joining the wine club was a plus and with the extra certificates we are accumulating, the price for a dinner for 4 is above and beyond what you would get anywhere else where you would pay a much higher price. We are extremely pleased that Cooper's Hawk has come to Cincinnati!

    I think the restaurant is great for groups. Tables were far enough apart that you didn't feel crowded. Was a little noisy, so couldn't always hear what others were saying on the other side of the table. But it was still a good experience. Food and drinks were very good. Service was excellent! Got seated quickly with a reservation. Cost of dinner was reasonable for what you got. Portions were a good size, but not too much. Lots of choices. Appreciated the specific tipping listed on the bill.

    I've been going to CH at least twice a month for dinner since they opened and immediately became a wine club member. This is the first visit we have had that every person there be rude. The blonde older woman at the tasting bar was VERY rude when we went to get our monthly wine club wines. The hostess was rude as well when we asked her about what event was taking place in the back room. I hope this was a fluke otherwise I won't be going there very much longer....

    Overall good, with service being the downfall. Server was slow and inattentive. We had to wait a long time for food. Dessert took over 20 minutes after ordering, which is ridiculous. I asked for a change to my main course and my request was ignored, even though the server said it was no problem when I ordered. Private room had a photographer taking photos the entire time we were there and the flash got very irritating after awhile. However, our food was good, and that will likely bring us back to try them again.

    Recently I took my husband to Cooper's Hawk for his birthday to celebrate with his son and grandson. I had made reservations through Open table, which is super, and i was even able to request that a chilled bottle of his favorite wine be waiting for him at the table. He was so surprised! Our grandson is 9 and said he wanted to order steak rather than order from a "Kids' menu". To his surprise, there were steak medallions on the kids' menu and he was so pleased with his meal! He actually got more steak than we recently received at a national restaurant chain's "steak special"! The birthday treat was greatly appreciated by my husband and he said it was a great way to celebrate his birthday! Thanks for making it a special dinner!
