    This Restaurant does not do anything for an Opentable VIP's or for a special occasion. Made reservation asking for a table near a window, out of the high traffic areas and away from the kitchen entrance....which is EXACTLY where they lead me.... when the hostess went to ask the person assigning tables the lady became visibly agitated and made an unpleasant comment. We were then seated at a good table. Our Waitress was great and the food was very good.

    We've been wine club members at CH for 3 years, and have faithfully gone there (at least) once a month to do our complimentary wine tasting, talk with the staff with whom we've gotten to know quite well over the years as there is amazing stability of staff there, and we have never once had anything less than a wonderfully prepared meal - which is commendable since this was approximately our 40th time there with 3+ years of monthly outings! CH has done an absolutely wonderful job developing and growing this chain business that still has uniqueness here in Indy, and when we go to other CH's around Michigan and Illinois, we always miss our very own one. Keep up the fabulous job!

    First time visitor. While not a huge wine drinker, felt the initial environment was great. Open "tasting room" atmosphere. With a wide variety of wines. Restaurant atmosphere was noisy. Open room design made it difficult to enjoy a conversation at our table. Menu was good as was food. Everyone enjoyed the meals they ordered. Overall, the server was polite and knowledgable. Felt she may have been overworked. While atentative, service was missing at times. Overall- for the price, unless I went specifically for the wine, I don't think I would go back. Atmosphere was noisy, service was average. Food was excellent. Didn't enjoy the "wine club" sales pitch at the table. Could have been done in the tasting room. Dining is an overall experience, I would go for the food, maybe the wine, but everything else took away from being a great dining experience.

    It was our first visit and we loved it! Service was great, as well as the food. Pricing was wonderful for the amount of food. We can't wait to go back and try several entrees. The only thing that was "lacking" in my opinion was the dessert menu. I felt that it was under par for the type of menu items they serve.

    Cooper's Hawk has wonderful tasting wine and food. It is one of those memorable meals where from beginning to end everything tastes great! The service is very good! We are wine club members and it gives us a reason to go there once a month. We love the new wine tasting bar expansion. Also, it overs better wine pick-up for wine club members.

    When I arrived, I was initially worried to discover that Cooper's only offers their own wine. However, when I tried the red flight, I found that 3 of the 4 were complex, wonderful full-body wines. And, the food was fantastic for foodies like us. I recommend the tostadas as an appetizer. We had the tostadas, the drunken shrimp, and the egg rolls. All very good and more than enough for 2 people.

She was very nice and professional. It was extremely busy so things may go wrong but we love the place so definitely will keep going back.

    We have been Cooper's Hawk wine club members for 4 years. It's a must, that whenever we travel to a new state that has a Cooper's Hawk, we dine there. Cooper's Hawk in Indy, once again wins us over! The wine tasting and dining is a 5 star experience. The service and food are exceptional!! I highly recommend this restaurant the place to go as a couple or with family and friends.

    We were astonished by the high prices for mediocre wines and mediocre food. Two of the four entrees we ordered were cold and we were half way through them before the server appeared to see how our meal tasted. The highlight of the meal was the pretzel bread and our son's French fries. It's unlikely we'll be back.

    The food was outstanding. My steak medallions were cooked to perfection and very tender. Rarely do I get steak done right. I like it hot and pink inside so I ask for medium well as suggested by the waitresses and usually it's done too much. Cooper's Hawk got it right and they were very tender and juicy. I savored every bite! My husband got the pork chop and said it too was very tender and tasty. My two disappointments were: you had to join the club for the wine tasting and the restaurant was very noisy. It was very difficult for my husband and I to carry on a conversation without yelling at each other. Our waitress was a gem and more than made up for the disappointments.

    New wine tasting area is great. Wish people actually did more tasting than being social and holding up the line. We had reservations. The hostess took us to a table that was already taken. My partner and I stood in the middle of the restaurant waiting to be seated. Terri was our server. She was great and so was the food.

My red wine flight was delicious. I ordered the Soy Ginger Salmon, which was cooked to perfection and bursting with Asian flavors. My husband ordered the pistachio-crusted grouper which was also scrumptious. You simply can't go wrong here - there is something (food and beverage) for everyone.

    Love the feel of this restaurant / winrery...from the wine tasting area up front with some of the best wines we've tasted, to the restaurant area with great dishes and excellent service. The Ahi Tuna dish is amazing and the asian slaw that comes with it is great. The peppercorn burger is a filling dish at lunch...with just enough heat to add to the flavor. For a winery and more upscale restaurant, they do a great job of accommodating families / children. The kid's menu has plenty of options and the servers have always been really pelasant. Don't forget...kids all get a chocolate covered srawberry with their meal. In spring / fall (or summer if not too hot), the outdoor patio seating is a great experience as well.

    This place has great wines and great food. Risotto with shaved parm and truffle oil topped with pork tenderloin was the best dish we ate. It has so many wines you can satisfy even peculiar desires for sweet and sparkly wines. You can taste a lot of wine at the bar and at your table before trying. Some entries seem gimicky and silly (raspberry, peach, sweet red wines) but others were quite mature and accomplished.

    I walk with a cane, so they seated us in the furthest place from the door. It too a bit before the waiter appeared. Scallops "Indiana cooked" which I understand is equal to overdone. They were not tender but bouncy. The steak was ordered rare, but delivered medium. Still good flavor so I didn't send it back. The gnocchi was tender and good flavor. Service....we could have had better follow up. Once the waiter appeared at our table he was great until we received our food, then we had to search for him for assistance. Not what I expected. The wine was fabulous, as usual.

    We have dined at Cooper's Hawk in the past and that was one of the reasons we chose this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. We enjoyed excellent food and service. Our meals were wonderful: well seasoned, and well plated. The service was excellent: attentive enough to take care of our needs, but not overbearing. The complimentary wine samples were a pleasant way to make a choice. And the complimentary dessert was a pleasant surprise.
