    This restaurant is obviously very popular, given the multitude of people there. Unfortunately, the throng makes it extremely difficult to carry on any conversation without raising your voice to levels normally reserved for hurricane simulators or airport tarmacs. Arrived five (5) minutes before our reservation, and was told they'd text me "when it got closer to our reservation time." That must really go over with millennials, of which I am not one. Our server, while friendly, had some difficulty remembering things, most likely due to how crowded and noisy it was. We had to ask another server for bread three-quarters of the way through the meal, because it was neither brought nor offered to us earlier, as it was to other tables around us. Food was inconsistent and disappointing. Seared ahi tuna was good, but the portion of tuna was quite small for the price. The chicken Cobb salad - ordered with balsamic vinaigrette and extra chicken - arrived with neither. Kudos, however, for remembering to charge for the extra chicken. The high note was the enthusiastic greeter at the door who provided each of us with a sample of their Reisling Gewürztraminer offering. At the table, I chose their Sauvignon Blanc, which was very good.

    Cooper's Hawk is a really neat place to have dinner. It was very clean, well lit and the service was excellent. We enjoyed a red wine that was excellent, an appetizer that was unique and fresh and two delicious entrees that were presented very well and were delicious. This restaurant will become a regular place for us to visit.

    Went to Cooper's hawk for first time Friday. Ordered two martinis. They were a little too dirty so the plan was to reshake with more vodka. We got them back and obviously they just added water to our drinks. Also ordered the short rib tostados as an appetizer. The short rib pieces were almost all fat with no actual meat pieces at all. To say the least we left shortly after and enjoyed a nice meal at Houstons! Beware of this place👎

    The restaurant was beautiful and had a great wine selection. You get to treat some wines before ordering a bottle which I appreciated. My chicken saltimbocca was amazing and my husband's steak was over cooked but still tender. Unfortunately there was a group of EXTREMELY loud women sitting next to us and one lady was cackling so loud that everyone sitting around us was staring at her...she didn't seem to mind disrupting everyone else's meal. I wish the manager would've addled her to quiet down as he had been told by many people she was being too loud, but nothing was done. Overall, good experience, but I wouldn't say it was amazing.

    The food at Cooper's Hawk was delicious. The Caesar salad was well prepared. The lettuce was crisp and the dressing tasted great. The portions are large and my girlfriend and I split one. We also enjoyed splitting a flight of the Lux Wines and a glass of their homemade sangria. All the wines were quite tasty and an excellent accompaniment to the meal. For our main courses, we had the Chef's recommendation for the Lobster & Seafood Ravioli and the Spanish Seafood Cannelloni. Both entrees were incredibly tasty and thoroughly enjoyed. The service was excellent and the ambiance and decor very nice. We'd highly recommend a visit.

    This was a new restaurant we were trying to celebrate my birthday. I did not know that the best seating was on the middle level with a window view. I booked this reservation online. We were put up at the third level without a view and only one other couple who left while we were dining. It was a bit lonely up there and without a view. Our waiter wasn't terrible but he wasn't great either. He didn't know the specific details about the specials and we had to ask him to go and get us an answer. I would go back and recommend this restaurant, but be sure to ask for a window table next time. Great food! Great wine!

    I love the food and wine here (the short rib rosotto - WOW). Service, however, is spotty. This time I was there for my birthday with 6 girl friends, and our server seemed very nice and helpful, but after we had been waiting for our food for over an hour and a half, one friend went to speak to a manager. We were told they were plating our food now and should only be 10 iminutes or so. It took another half an hour... All of our food and drinks were comped and the manager apologized profusely and said we were welcome to order dessert or whatever else we liked. But our server hardly checked on us after the first 20 minutes or so (he was probably afraid!) but a little more attention would've been good.

    We should up a little early, as we had reservations, and the table was ready almost right on time. We also had an extra person that we were able to fit right in. Aside from the kitchen being backed up (our food took a while to get to us) the service and quality was excellent. A drink I normally get with a nice dinner (Sapphire on the rocks with Bleu Cheese stuffed olives) was a couple dollars more than when I usually get it ($10.25) but other than that, I have only good things to say about Cooper's Hawk.

    This weekend we went there for my wife's B/D and we were very saddened by what happened. She ordered scallops and when they brought out the food they handed her a plate of risotto and steak medallions, which is a far cry from seafood! They did not ask if she wanted something else, nothing, just handed her the meal. Of course that is not what she was in the mood for so they brought out a menu and asked her to reorder. By the time she got her replacement meal, the others in the party were nearing completion. Not how she envisioned her birthday to be!! Nobody came by to ask how our meals were which if they did I would have told them that the Medallion Trio was well done--not med rare as asked for. One other in the party descry. food as bland

    My friend and I decided on a whim to lunch at Cooper's Hawk Winery and Restaurant. What a great whim! While I can't comment on the entire (extensive and well-rounded) menu, I can say that the flatbread and salad combo that we had exceeded all expectations. The flatbread was crisp with just the right amount of toppings and the salads were fresh and tossed with the right amount of dressing. We have already decided that this will be the place for our annual holiday Plaza dinner.

    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.

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!

    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.
