    This was about my sixth visit to Cooper's Hawk. The wine tastings are always very enjoyable, but a couple of times I have been disappointed in the good. The chicken giardenara was too salty, and the scallops on a bed of vegetables were not that good. Just a little more care in the kitchen would work wonders.

    It seems extensively high level of noise as you try to talk and you hear people laughing and talking at table near a far from you. It distracts from your conversation.

    My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary here and it was a fantastic experience. The food was wonderful and the service was excellent. We felt that the staff went above and beyond to make our night special. We felt the service was just as good as some of the best fine dining restaurants in Cincinnati. My wife and I will definitely dine here more frequently.

    We like Coopers Hawk, in general. The food is average (not great), they have an excellent gluten free menu which is one of the reasons we go there for lunch. This last trip we had a server with an "attitude"; she really did not want to be there and did not think that serving the customer was very important. This happens sometimes, so we are not going to let this experience sour us. After being at Sotto a few nights earlier where the service is exemplary, it was very apparent and the contrast was just amazing.

    We always enjoy the food at Coopers' Hawk. It's the level of noise that dissuades us from going more often. Weekends are especially bad when the restaurant is crowded. However we chose to come there after the Arronoff and found it very enjoyable because we could talk to each other without the roar of the crowd.

    We knew Coopers Hawk was a winery first and foremost, but we were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. Our meal was wonderful, from the appetizers, to the salads, to our entrees, everything was really well executed and delicious. I highly recommend.

    This is a good place to eat/drink as long as you set your expectations accordingly. Don't show up expecting something comparable to a visit to Napa. The wine is just OK, but it is also priced accordingly so it's not a problem. The food is decent, and again, priced accordingly. Neither the food nor wine are exceptional, but for what it is I think it is a good value. The overall ambiance is a bit corporate, and a bit loud. Our waitress was not knowledgeable on either the food or the wine, but luckily they anticipate that (again, pretty corporate) and everything from the chef specials to pairings to the tasting notes is printed out. Re-reading this it sounds a bit more negative than I intended, because we did enjoy ourselves.

    Have passed by several times but always look for places downtown or in Hyde park - this is a great place closer to home! Really enjoyed the lux wine flight. Lots of choices at a very reasonable price and the Mediterranean salad was amazing! Having the healthy choices with calorie info was great for us since we are trying to be more mindful of what we eat. Will definitely be back!!

    They have thought of everything with this restaurant. Wine bar is amazing as was the service at the wine bar food is fantastic, as is the atmosphere. We went twice in two weeks after our first visit. Wine is good but not exceptional. Best of all was the service on our 2nd visit. 1st visit service was less than perfect but the second visit with Jamal made the evening.

    Sat outside. Noise from street paving was unbearable and still going on at 7:30 PM on a Friday night. Initially, skirt steak came out raw. Staff was responsive and got my steak cooked right, but I to eat when everyone was finished. The more expensive wines were very good. The less expensive wines tasted a bit young. Food was good. Finally, we had to go inside to avoid paving noise, but there was no place to sit and it was extremely noisy....so we just left and went to another bar. Recommend this restaurant to people who light lively and noisy bars and restaurant scenes.

    I thought the service was poor. Didn't check to see if we needed our water glasses filled. She also free got to bring a cocktail when we ordered a second round. We had four in our group and we had to send three of the meals back. One was over cooked! Fish, food was cold. and one ordered shrimp and got chicken. Will be looking for new place to Dine.

    Cooper's Hawk Winery and Restaurant is engaging from the first look to the last bite. Highly professional staff, varied and appealing menu and the most wonderful wine bar I have experienced. Looking on the website I discovered numerous avenues to discover more of Cooper's Hawk. I especially like the private party menu choices, very appealing and reasonably priced.

    My husband and I enjoyed a very nice 30th anniversary dinner at Cooper's Hawk. The food was excellent, the best I have had in a while. The waitress was very knowledgeable and service was very good, so was the wine. Because it was our 30th anniversary they gave us a complementary round of drinks and a nice small dessert. The only minor complaints were that the restaurant was more noisy then I would have liked. Also the staff gives you a sales pitch on joining their wine of the month club which feels a little awkward at the end of your dining.

    I made reservations with a booth request. We walked past two booths to be seated at a table. I requested to move to one of several empty booths, no problem. Within a few minutes the same table & the booth next to ours were sat. Both were approached immediately, one had bread and wine before we were greeted. As a hostess went by, we told her we had not been waited on. The manager immediately came to our table, apologized and offered free appetizers and took our drink order. Our server was very competent, however, I would have appreciated at least " Oh I'm sorry you had to wait" or something in acknowledgement. We were celebrating two birthdays and she did kindly provide them complimentary desserts. Great food, no grudges, we'll be back.

    First time to Coopers' Hawk. We were told it was noisy and it was, even on a Monday night. Difficult even to hear across a booth. Good crowd for a Monday night, mix of ages. The service was good, server was knowledgeable and friendly. We ordered the cheese tray and two different entrees. Entrees came before we could finish the cheese tray. I would not order the main course before the appetizer appears as it is obvious they are trying to turn the tables over and the kitchen obviously doesn't coordinate with the server. Entrees were good but not great. I would say this is an okay restaurant close to the mall but nothing special.

    The food was excellent - our party had the special, multiple fish, & pork dishes, and all were prepared perfectly (uncommon with fish at many restaurants.) They were out of a few things on Sunday evening - they said all food was prepared fresh so it was understandable for a main course, but not having enogh bread at 6PM on a Sunday seems ill prepared. Even with these little glitches, we had an excellent food experience, and our entire party left very happy with our dinner.

    Disappointed in the wine. Too young. Did not like that this was our only choice of wine. A great bottle of wine is what makes the meal. Food was good but not "awesome". Have had better. Server seemed to have an attitude with us when we were sampling all the wines to find one bottle we were happy with. Did not see her much, seemed like she was avoiding our table. It was just "ok" but not worth going back.

    The wine list was great, the food was amazing and the service was top notch. Cooper's Hawk was recommended to me by a coworker so I decided to take my wife out on a much needed and overdue date night. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we joined the wine club (2 bottles) and we have already made plans to bring some of our other friends back with us. Thank you for a wonderful evening!! Carey Cole

    I had Parmesan Crusted Chicken and the chicken was very burnt on one side. I would of sent it back but it took us 70 minutes to get our food and we did not want to wait that long for me to get a new entree. We were in a party of four and the other 3 people got the special which was food in a bowl, no reason for it to be burnt. Coopers Hawk needs to be told again about their cooks serving food that was difficult to eat because of the burnt condition. The waitress we had was good but did noting but say she was sorry about the food. Right know would not go back there. Left a bad taste in our mouths!!!!
