Diner Reviews
  • "DELICIOUS!! we did the wine tasting before dinner and ate dinner. Everything was awesome! Can't wait to go back!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "First time at Cooper's Hawk. Although the wines sampled were decent, we found the food only fair in its taste and presentation. The steak I had was cooked to request (medium rare) but seemed like it was warmed up rather than grilled or seared. Side dishes came out warm, not hot. My wife's scallops were the best part of the meal. The temperature of her side dishes suggested they had been sitting out while waiting for the entrees to be plated. We were seated in the back room which did not share the nice ambiance that the rest of the restaurant appeared to have while walking through. Our party of 2 was surrounded by larger groups and this space seemed much more appropriate for group gatherings rather than a pre-show dinner for two."

  • "I celebrated my birthday with a group of friends recently and had a wonderful time! The food is always amazing, the service is attentive (as much as possible when it's really busy!) and the atmosphere is buzzing... but not overwhelming! Thank you for a great night!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Cooper's Hawk is always consistent and the food is amazing. I haven't had anything that was less than stellar. The wine is amazing. My only grumble is the small area to do a wine tasting. However, I hear this is being addressed!!!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "This was my second visit and I felt like this time the restaurant couldn't handle the crowd. Less service, everything was rushed like an upscale fast food restaurant. I was like they were trying to get me out the door in order to turn the table. I am sure there is a balance. Food was good as usual but I'll know not to go on a Friday evening if I am looking for something with a little more atmosphere for conversation and meeting with old friends."

  • "It is one of my favs... never had a bad thing on the menu"

  • "My parents love this restaurant and my only prior visit was for wine tasting and to buy gift cards. I took my wife for our anniversary and couldn't have been happier with the choice. The food and wine were amazing and our server was awesome. We will definately be back!!"
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "Food was ok this time. I had the surf and turf---turf was good, but surf was tasteless and looks like they just cooked it frozen. I like my fish fresh !"
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "Nice restaurant with, at times, spotty service. On this occasion, the scallops were very salty and this took some of the enjoyment out of the occasion."
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "Food always consistently good; birthday dinner with spouse and grandchildren; kid friendly and moderately priced. Free dessert for the birthday boy and points for wine club members."

  • "Had a wonderful date night with delicious food and drinks. Also had sweet server who made great recommendations for food and wine options."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "We are not the typical diners, we like to have minimal interruption and not notice our surroundings when we dine with each other. We celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary and we felt like we were the only 2 people there as the seating is conducive to allow company to enjoy dinner and conversation, which was very nice, because we were there to celebrate with each other not the whole restaurant. Our server was very informative and friendly. The food was good with a great selection of side dishes and the condiments to the calamari was a welcome change."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "Great service from Ben, who was friendly and energetic, always making sure we were taken care of. We were there to celebrate a friend's birthday, but hadn't mentioned it to Ben; he was very observant and took it upon himself to bring a birthday dessert, which was really nice of him. The food, of course, was EXCELLENT! Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and can't wait to go back."

  • "Go for the food, but not the service. Food and atmosphere are fun - but the waiter barely paid attention to us."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Our food took about 45 mins to come which was a little disappointing but we were given a free bottle of wine and didn't even complain. We had a group of 6 and still had a great experience!"

  • "Service was excellent & food was tasty. However, pricing might preclude this from being a regular spot for some..."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Had a reservation for 8.30 pm. Arrived on time, but still waited 30 minutes to be seated. Server pleasant and efficient. Food good overall, but the crab cakes very bland and obviously made with poorer quality shredded crab meat. Overall the restaurant is extremely noisy in the circular area. Perhaps the noise level is lower in the main dining area. No where to sit whilst we waited 30 minutes to be seated, even though we did have a reservation. Apparently having a reservation only means you get priority seating once a table become available."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Went in and did a tasting flight before meal to get a feel for their wines. A little crowded and bigger tasting area needed but it was a fun experience. Food was great but the seafood had sauces that were a bit on the salty side. Fish tacos were yummy!"

  • "Everything was excellent!!! Nothing else to be said..."

  • "Our family meets for dinner on Fridays and it's great when restaurants take reservations. The service was great and everyone had an enjoyable meal."

  • "I've been eating here for a couple years,been my favorite restaurant since. I love the lamb, escallops and the soups...but everything on the menu is AMAZING! Usually i get great service with an exception of last nights dinner but that didn't spoil my night at all :)"

  • "We often work in a stop at Cooper's Hawk when we are going to Indy for shopping or a show. Always dependable and interesting, though I was not a fan of my surf and turf dinner (pistachio crusted grouper and maple pork medallions) - it was simply a matter of taste, not through any fault of the restaurant. I always enjoy the Anne's Chicken and my dinner companion raved about her salmon."

  • "Coopers Hawk never let's me down. It is always a perfect environment and delicious meal."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "all food was very good. service was acceptable we were in a room with a number opf large tables(we were party of six) and it was quite noisy until 830 when several tables emptied. I would recommend- prices are not over the top and wine is reasonable and good."

  • "Dined for our 16 wedding anniversary. Kathleen was our server; and she was excellent. We enjoyed the food and glad that we chose to celebrate/dine at this establishment."

  • "Round table for 6, great food & wine= wonderful dinner!"
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "I belong to the wine club, so go there frequently. Every time I go for lunch, I get the same thing because it's so delicious: The pork and beef medallions. This time, our really great server recommended that I try the chicken marsala. It was, without doubt, the best I've ever had! Really glad I stepped out of my rut to try something new. The Lux Pinot Noir was great, as well."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "Simply fabulous. Great food great service. Want to go back often."

  • "had a really good salad. pretzel bread was good. waitress was completely absent. No water refills, waited 10 minutes or so to order food, never came back to ask for check, etc. usually like to be left alone, but this was excessive"
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "Excellent ambience and vibe. The food was fresh and delicious. Service was knowledgeable about the menu, impeccable and very friendly."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "We have a large group that eats here once a month. It is getting very difficult to book a large table on the weekends. The wine tasting area gets very crowded. Having at least one other large table to accommodate large groups would be most welcomed. We did have to sit at 2 different booths and we appreciated that they sat us close to each other. I understand the upcoming renovation is going to address the much needed space increase for wine tasting. Our server was both personable and attentive. The food as always was spectacular."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Been a wine club member for 2 years now. Food and service are declining. Rude people using tasting area as a bar, chit chating while others wait to taste. Wine is very good but food and service not work my time anymore. Will be cancel my membership this month."

  • "my sister and I dined her on a Saturday night. We both had steaks, but they were not cooked as we ordered. The manager wanted to bring us both new steaks, but mine was just undercooked, so I asked him to have them recook it some more. My sisters filet was medium well, and she ordered medium rare. They were so apologetic, and cooked her a new steak, which was perfect! They let her keep the old steak to bring home (so I took it since I like mine cooked more). The staff was just so nice. After our meal, they gave each of us a dinner and glass of wine on them coupon. Coopers Hawk knows how to take care of their customers. Sometimes steaks come out wrong, and we both didn't think it was a big deal, but they did. Food was great."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "We always enjoy going to Cooper's Hawk. The tasting room is always fun and many of their wines are very good. I have tried many of the things on their menu and have never been disappointed."

  • "My fiancee and I went to Cooper's Hawk this past Wednesday. Because we skipped lunch, we decided to go big by starting with the Appetizer Sampler, which includes the delectable "Over the Border Egg Rolls," calamari, Asian slaw, two crab cakes, and pot stickers. I highly recommend this sampler. I got the Jalapeno Bacon Burger and fries for an entree. Pretty big slab of beef. I was impressed. She got the Cilantro Ranch Chicken Sandwich. She said it was tasty, but overdosed with sauce. All in all, it was a great meal, except we could have done without the waitress constantly trying to twist our arms to "upgrade" to the "2 Bottle" Wine Club. (We have a "1 Bottle a Month" membership.)"
