    I will comment on my husbands meal that he was dissatisfied with. He order the 9 oz filet. When ordered, he asked for medium plus. The food took a little longer then normal to arrive. The steak was almost rare. There was at least an inch of rare meat in the center. After approximately 10 minutes we told the server. He took the steak off the plate and 25 minutes later after the potatoes and vegetables were eaten he brought a very well done steak back.

    Please visit the hawk. To do it correctly get to the hawk an hour or more before your reservation. Do a wine tasting (go for Jarrod, Giddian, Lindsay, or Therese... Trust me) it's only 7 bucks! Our server was mindy. She's awesome. Hilarious, pays attention to detail and cares about her job. If you sit at the bar, Megan and pj are great! The food is amazing. Go for the pork medallions, the trio, the gnocchi, or honestly anything on the menu . If the kitchen is slow it's because it's from scratch and have fun waiting!

    Had a delightful dinner outside at Cooper's Hawk in Columbus this week. The food was excellent - we had a combination of appetizers and salmon. Three of us enjoyed wine as well - the Lux Cabernet and one person had the Chardonnay. The evening was warm but cooling off making the patio the place to be. I've heard that inside can be quite cold so had wanted to dine on the patio if possible and it was great. Will look forward to a return visit here next time I'm in Columbus.

    We don't go out much, but my husband and I were celebrating our anniversary. We made reservations(which is basically required for dinner Friday and Saturday!) we stopped in one time before and it was an hour and a half wait! We LOVED our experience. The food was great! The waitress was helpful when making our decisions. Our only minimal complaint. Our food came fairly quickly. We were into sitting and relaxing and drinking for a while. But getting your food efficiently isn't a bad thing! They brought us a special treat of chocolate covered strawberry and a truffle for our anniversary. Best truffle I have EVER had. I can't wait to go back!

    This place was recommended to me by a co-worker. My partner and I finally found time to go, and was pleasantly surprised and very satisfied with my first visit!!! It was crowded, no doubt.......but it wasnt too loud. Beautiful restaurant....nice ambience. Great wine list and menu options. Friendly staff and servers. My only (small) quibble.......it seemed to take a LONG time for the food to arrive..........once it did, however, it was very good!!!!

    We came back for a 2nd visit after a luncheon birthday event a year ago when we liked the atmosphere and closeness to home. Wedding anniversary this time. There were few, less than $20 seafood dishes on menu. $60 for two Spanish Seafood Cannelloni dishes ($23/ea.) costs too much in our opinion but it was different and tasty. House wine was too expensive at $6.50 for 1/3 of a glass. Suggest you serve a little more wine. Will budget $100 next time. Good place for younger crowd but may be too pricey for limited, fixed income customers.

    Cooper's Hawk has never failed me. Their food is excellent, the wine is diverse and readily available, and that pretzel bread is worth the trip alone. My most recent trip was a date night with my girlfriend and we had a great time. We were seated in a back corner which was wasn't ideal (no air circulation back there!) but the rest of the experience was enjoyable.

    Been a couple times, this past experience we set in very dark area( table of 6 females) waiter was very slow with our order yet very accommodating to the table next to us. Food was ok, wasn't as impressed as I had been on my first visit but reasonably priced and I love the sweet red which was sold in lobby for around $15 yet on menu was priced way higher

    went to Coopers Hawk for a work lunch on a Thursday around noon. It was not too busy, so reservations likely weren't necessary. The crab & lobster bisque was excellent. probably the best I've had in the area. I had the lunch portion Anne's chicken saltimbocca for my entrée. It was plenty of food and very delicious. I will definitely return.

    While the food was excellent, the hostess was very rude to my friend (before I got there) and then to me when I arrived. I have sent an email via their website concerning my experience. I would still recommend the restaurant, but was not impressed with the hostess. Food was AWESOME. Raspberry sangria, AWESOME!

    My party arrived at the restaurant 20 minutes early for a 6PM reservation. The restaurant was not busy, we were told it would be just a "couple of minutes." We watched as people with parties ranging from 1 to 8 people walked in and were sat immediately, without a reservation, approximately 5 parties of this type were sat. 25 minutes after arrival (mind you we had a 6PM reservation and the restaurant was not busy, it was now 6:05PM) we were told the our table was ready. We walked in to notice that there were at minimum 8 tables empty. After nearly 10 minutes of sitting there without being greeted, a server said they would be right over, after 5 minutes no one ever came back, so we left not served, unfed, unhappy.

    This is my first return to the restaurant since my 5/20/14 visit. That visit was ruined by a long wait for the entree. Our visit last night was a very nice experience. The wine bar was energetic and the restaurant staff was flipping tables quickly. Our server, sorry that I cannot recall her name, was very pleasant, providing suggestions and attentive to our needs. The entree special, was recommended by our server, came out quickly and was delicious. Thanks for a wonderful evening

The food is top notch and always fresh. What we love the most is the staff. The recognize us every time we come in to the restaurant. From the Therese in the tasting room, Ashlie our favorite server and the wonderful bow tie wearing manager Nathan. They are like a family and make us feel like we are part of theirs. There are several more we would like to mention but I cannot remember all the names but they all do a wonderful job. Great food and great service. Keep it up.

    We arrived prior to our reservation and enjoyed the wine tasting. We were seated and our experience went down hill from there. The waitress was not very friendly and she was not very attentive. We waited 20 minutes for our drinks and we waited 45 minutes for our entrees. When our food arrived it was barely warm. We had snagged another employee to check on our orders because we hadn't seen our waitress in 15 minutes and our food was finally delivered by 3 other employees. Our waitress or a member of management never checked in to see how our food was. The food was well prepared but must have sat in kitchen for a long time.

    This is the third time we have been here. The first two times have been outstanding, food, wine and service. This time around not so much so. The food was as excellent as always. But the service was beyond poor. Diner was brought before we were done with the cheese tray. No bread (though the table next to us who order just burgers had their loafs... same waitress), dirty appetizer plates left on the table, no offer for a 2nd round of drinks, no offer for clean silverware. Basically we were being rushed to turn a table. We did bring this to the managers attention halfway through the meal. Scott the manager did an outstanding job to make things right. Thank you to him for saving the night.

    We had a reservation for 7:30, wasn't seated until 8; waiters were confused on table assignments; wine was selected after a tasting but was told by another person that the selected wine was sold out however after conveying our disappointment she went to the back and found the "last bottle"; ordered meal (for a party of 3: soup, roasted vegetables, and salad) at same time as wine was ordered but order took nearly 45 min to reach our table; waiter repeatedly apologized for the poor kitchen service; waiter even told the manager however the manager was more concerned entertaining a friend with a backpack and leather biker jacket that was roaming in and out of the kitchen area; manager never came to the table to "check" on us or to apologize.
