    The wine selection was great, there is something for everyone. I would recomend trying the 4-sample glasses! The salads were amazing, and a really large plate. All of the entrees' looked great. I choose the gnocchi carbonara and it was perfect. All of the desserts looked like great choices. The creme brûlée was spectacular!

    Coopers in Indy was perfect. Our business group of 6 was seated promptly, never rushed, and worked out great. The salmon, tuna and pork chop were outstanding. The wine was very good and the $25 3 course meal (special) was a tremendous deal.

    Amazing what a good server can bring to a restaurant like Coopers Hawk. For wine aficionados it can be a great dining experience but it needs the cooperation of a good server to offer suggestions and tastings. Our first visit last year was a delight, our server fully explained their wine offerings and was knowledgeable on the dishes they offered. He made us feel welcome and pampered. Fast forward to this visit, also a special occasion celebration and while the food and wine were still good the server's lack of familiarity with their products and general reluctance to offer information or tasting made for an awkward dining experience.

    The service was wonderful. They focus on their own wines and the server was very knowledgeable about the offerings. The food was tasty, I ordered the gonococci it was tender and the sauce complemented the dish. Everyone loved the meal that was served. Pass on the salads though, unless you like your lettuce chopped to the point that you need a spoon to eat it. I ordered the wedge and it came with a very small un-mutilated section the rest chopped so small, including everything added to it, the onions eggs, etc. I felt like a needed a spoon which was not available.

    We were introducing an out of town couple to Coopers Hawk. We have always had good food there. Unfortunately Sunday noon may not be a good time to go. First we arrive and were about the only people in the restaurant and they seated us right next to the noisy kitchen! So we asked to be moved to a more peaceful table which was accommodated (maybe with just a little reluctance). We all ordered different items. The jumbalaya was reportedly good. Fish and chips were a C. Chicken Piccata was a C. And the salmon was tasty. One good thing: our waitress was attentive and did a good job. Overall the experience was not up to the standards we have previously encountered at this restaurant.

    Dinned 9/21/2014. Checked in and wanted to do a tasting. Were given 15 minutes? We had to rush and then skip 3 wines in order not to lose our table. We're there spending money how is standing at the tasting room different than sitting at a table? Down $14 and not all my samples before we even make it to the table. Waitress was nonexistent. Had to ask 4 times for our wine. FOUR TIMES! How does that happen? Girlfriend was was given an entirely wrong meal. Had to wait for the correct one to come out. Short ribs were more like a pot roast. We didn't complain at the restaurant, just wanted the night together.

    Enjoyed our monthly tasting (I'm a wine club member) and then enjoyed a great dinner. All three of us enjoyed the salad and flatbread combo. Awesome as one of my girlfriends is a vegetarian. We enjoyed a bottle of Blanc d Blanc in celebration. We were also treated to a gorgeous chocolate birthday sampler for dessert. Thank you Cooper's Hawk for such a nice evening!

    The waiter was a good guy... HOWEVER...there was a problem with our appetizers....15+ minutes passed, during my lunch hour.I had to get up and find my waiter. I watched others seated AND SERVED before our appetizers arrived. The Waiter claimed the kitchen made a mistake and had to remake them. In a narrow amount of time we should have been told and given a chance to change our order. Then no contact with a manger. We had to race through our main course to get back to work for a meeting. Gave ourselves 90 minutes for lunch and was late.

    We frequent this restaurant and are wine club members and were not impressed this time. Hostess told us there is an hour wait before we could even tell her we had a reservation. We asked for a booth and she said there were none. There were at least 8 open during the entire time we dined:(. I think she didn't want to give a booth to 3 people. We were lied to. They tried to seat us way off in a separate room, but I refused since there were many open tables in the main dining. They got all of our orders wrong, but still good food.

I am dairy free, I told our waitress and she let the kitchen know, and they helped me substituted sides and sauces so that I could enjoy my meal. They were very accommodating to my needs. They also have a good gluten free menu already on their main menu.

  • 8oz Ice Cream Scoop of Mash...

    Dined on 9/9/2014
    I will start this review with stating I'm a Chef. Professionally. School & 10 years behind the scenes. I know exactly what it takes to execute 400+ covers with a crew of just 5. That's exactly what I do, give or take a few meals, 6 days a week. My dinner was on a Tuesday evening. Not slammed by any means at all. My guest order fish with asparagus & their mashed potatoes. Pretty simple right? Other than someone preparing the dish thinks a scoop of potatoes that exactly resembles a scoop of ice cream looks appealing...people eat with their eyes first & someone just doesn't care. My dish...also known as a semi-warm bowl of noodles with lightly reduced heavy cream, a few halfed cherry tomatoes, spinach & dry chicken...awesome. Horrible food.

  • Disappointing
    JkorbVIP
    Dined on 9/8/2014
    I was pretty disappointed when I discovered they only sell the wine they make. For those of you who love wine, they will not give you the vintage or area where the grapes are from. I was told its because they never use the same twice and apparently lose track of who they get the from including when they received them and bottled the wine. If you find yourself in my position, meeting someone and your not able to find another restaurant, order the barrel wine. Its price point is great and the wine is drinkable. The food seemed to follow suit with the wine decisions. Best advice, if you like chain style restaurants you may find an average meal. If you like great food of high quality and excellent preparation, opt to eat somewhere else.
