    Food. Wine. Service. It's ALL good here. Great, actually. My husband and I had an outstanding meal on our recent visit to Cooper's Hawk. Our server was prompt, attentive, and friendly. 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.

    Dined on 10/8/2014
    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.

    This restaurant was a nice find on a quick decision. We were in the neighborhood and had to find a restaurant to take our college student for a celebration. The food was outstanding and the service equaled the food in quality. We were not disappointed! This is a restaurant that will get a return trip next time we are in town.

    Dinner
    Dined on 10/3/2014
    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.

    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.
