    We are members & brought guests with us to do wine tasting & dinner. There was no room for us at the bar & they told us we would have to wait until someone left. That didn't happen so we asked to be seated for dinner. We had a reservation. Our dinner took well over 2 hours & totally because our server was extremely slow. Took a long time for him to take our order, bring the check, water etc.

    Wait and wine flight staff are always great but host/hostess area have always been rude and condescending, this trip was no different. I don't understand how a restaurant manages to hire the best when it comes to the people serving the wine and conducting the wine flights while finding host/hostesses that seem to be bothered by coming to work and assisting customers. We've returned to Cooper's Hawk many times because the food is good and the winery atmosphere is nice in spite of the hosts. Overall, I would recommend trying Cooper's Hawk if you have not yet, but suggest lunch with open seating where you interact with the bar tenders vs. the host stand. With that said, just now sure if we will be going back after this last trip.

    Cooper's Hawk was all a buzz on a Saturday night. It has a great atmosphere and there's plenty to do while waiting for a table. Unfortunately, we waited more than 40 minutes past our reservation time for our table and the winery and bar seemed to be severely understaffed. Food was good, especially the desserts!

Server had only been there for 3 days...nice but clueless. Table in very busy part of restaurant ..as you came up stairs. Probably won't go back.

    We frequent this restaurant on a regular basis but the last two visits have been less than impressive, especially our most recent visit. Very disappointing from beginning to end, to the point where we will most likely be cancelling our wine club membership. The hostess station was a disaster, our waiter was new and clueless, our order was incorrect, and a manager was no where in sight. To make matters worse, this was our 5th wedding anniversary and it was ruined.

    We had an overall great experience at Cooper's Hawk. I've been there before and never had a bad experience. The servers are always super friendly and attentive. Our server even gave us gluten-free buns (we had 2 in our party that have gluten problems) which really made them happy. Their pretzel bread is super delicious. I had the red wine short ribs, which were very tasty. I've also never had a wine I didn't like. I had 2 glasses of the White Zinfandel and it was really good. Their fruit wines are sweet and very good for a dessert. Great food, wine and company. Can't beat that.

    Great decor! Classy but casual. Very nice selection of menu choices! Was meet at the door and offered a wine sample. Nice touch! Very nice blanc de blanc sparkling white and reasonable happy hour drink prices. Disappointed to have ahi tuna served overcooked and a fairly long wait for food both initially and after requesting the ahi rare as expected. Our waiter agreed immediately that the tuna was overdone. Perhaps at a minimum a manager could have acknowledged the issue or perhaps handled the matter differently since the rest of my party was well into their meal by the time my fish arrived. Their pretzel bread is very good and nice touch.

    I have been here several times and it has always been great, but our last experience was sub-par due to the waitress. Food, wine, drinks & food servers were great!! Our server had little personality or social interactions, acted like we were troubling her when we asked for anything and got one order completely wrong...which she said was our fault because she thought she heard my friend say "the same" instead of "the medallions". No apology about misunderstanding, just very short with us.

    Took clients to this restaurant. We were on time for our reservation but ended up waiting 15 mins to have our table setup. The staff were pleasant and attentive. When our order came out almost everyone was given some else's plate. Overall it was a good experience and excellent food. I would go back and would recommend to friends and family.

    It was our first visit to Cooper's Hawk and what a delight. The setting was beautiful and showcased the Plaza with a sophisticated style. Our service was impeccable. The structure of the menu and wine paring was delightful. There were four of us in the party and we were all making plans to bring others to enjoy this 'new find'. Cooper's Hawk has this designed to be completely accommodating to our food and wine requests. I think we all felt like we found a treasure on the Plaza. And by the way....our meal was fantastic!!

    While Cooper's Hawk boasts an incredible wine list and beautiful location, it's a deceptively terrible place for have date night. We arrived a half hour before our reservation intending to grab a drink at the wine bar. Unfortunately the area was so packed, we could not get a drink, let alone share a conversation. When we got seated in the restauraunt, we quickly discovered the tables are so incredibly close, conversation was again nearly impossible. Everyone is seated so close together, you can clearly hear everyone's conversations, making it woefully un-romantic. I am happy to see a local winery doing so well in business; but for the price tag, it was a disappointing experience. Unless it's with a large group, I will not be returning.

    This was my boyfriends first time at Cooper's Hawk and my second. Reservations ran about 20 min behind (probably from homecoming groups) but Heath at the bar was so great that we completely forgot we were even waiting! Once we got seated the food and drinks were quick to our table. This is definitely our new favorite weekend date night spot!

    The food, wine, service and location could not have been more perfect. We can't wait to go back again. The prices are very reasonable as well. Love the wine tasting prior to dinner and the gift shop in the tasting bar. This is absolutely a unique dining experience with menu choices that are unique and delicious. Love the exclusive Coopers Hawk wine list.

    My wife and I went to Coopers Hawk for our 1st anniversary celebration. When we arrrived at the restaurant, no one was manning the front desk. We waited about 1-2 minutes before someone came to take our name and seat us. When we were seated our waitress was friendly and took our order. The food was brought out fairly quickly, which was nice. The food was delicious. When we paid for the meal, we paid in cash. We didn't require change. I gave her an $11 tip on a $65 ticket (slightly under 20%). When we left the reastaurant, we passed by our waitress and said thank you. She didn't even turn around. She mumbled, "Thanks." She seemed a little upset. That kind of behavior is unacceptable at a nice restaurant like Coopers Hawk.

    The food was great for lunch! We had out of town guest and they enjoyed the wine tasting (had some shipped home). The women did a little shopping in the retail store which they enjoyed. The only negative was that we booked on-line and left a comment requesting a table with a short walk because one of our guest had a bad back. I don't think they read our comment - we walked forever to reach our table.

    I love this place. Great bar for before dinner drinks and then great menu, food and service. I have been for business and pleasure and both were great. I especially liked when I made the reservation for the business lunch, I noted that it was for a meeting and could they seat us in a quieter area since not all hear well. They actually read my note from the reservation and did exactly what I asked, perfect. Thank you for the attention to detail! We will always go back!
