    Took a friend out for her birthday and it was a great time. Did a wine tasting before dinner and although it ran a bit over our dinner reservation time it was no problem and we were able to be seated when we were ready. Staff very accommodating.

    My wife and I had dinner for 8 year anniversary. Things started out well with comp sparkling wine and comparison of another wine that we could compare the bottle we bought. Service was ok, but he stopped by the table a dozen times constantly interrupting our conversation. The wine was ok, with the food being poor. The short rib in my risotto was overcooked and dry. My wife's fish was also overbooked and dry. She also has mashed potatoes with her entree that were hard and molded so much so, we could flip them on end retaining the shape

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 10/16/2014
    I love the restaurant, but Barrington's place moves more efficiently. It was my birthday and I made the reservation WELL in advance. We had to wait a half hour to be seated. That isn't right, they should have accommodated us quicker then that. The hostess was not mature and didn't even tell me we'd have a wait till I went back to ask. Not even an I'm sorry. Once to the table, it was great!! Loved the food, wine and the server. Train your "young hostesses", be efficient, cater to their needs - especially for special occasions. People save up to go there and do it up right and this wait was a downer. But I will go back, its a great place.

    Choices for every palette and a wonderful wine pairing recommendation with each dish. Delicious. Busy night so service was a little less ideal than usual. We waited 35 minutes for our reservation. My coffee was never filled even once. It had gotten ice cold. But otherwise fabulous. Retail goodies to buy, wine to taste, nice bar area and vibrantly fun.

    Food and table service was great. Service at the dessert counter was horrible. We had decided to take a couple of cheesecakes home. My husband went up to the counter and waited for the girl to turn around. And waited. And waited. When she finally did turn around and face him, he started to talk. But instead of asking how can I help you she turned back around. She totally ignored him. She was extremely rude. So we left. We were there Monday Oct.13 th. We were there from 7pm til 8pm.

    Dined on 10/13/2014
    We are wine club members and had not been since July so we had 3 months of wine and one bday dinner waiting for us to collect. Our waitress had an attitude as soon as she approached us. She questioned that I had not picked up my wine since August and took my card to make sure. She only came back with Sept and Oct wines for us to try. Never brought bread and only did after we asked and by that time our salad's had been eaten. She blamed her delay in giving us our bill was because she had other tables to attend to. Came with our bill but never deducted our bday meal...we had to ask her to also do this. The food was excellent!

    We had a nice late lunch with a party of four but when we asked for a bottle of the wine that the "chef" reccomended via the waitress and the coaster on the table we were told that is only available to wine club members at a large $38 cost per month. That seems to me just a sales tactic and really you could not offer the wine to others??? I would have paid more per bottle that "club members".

    Made a reservation for seven, got there a little early, but we did not get seated until 7:15. The appetizers were great, the lobster crab bisque--a slight bit fishy tasting, same with the crab cakes---really good seafood does not taste fishy. Asked for more sauce for the crab cakes as the roasted veggies next to them had soaked it all up, and he never did come back with any. My husband got the country rigatoni--supposed to have a garlic cream sauce, he did not taste garlic and it was sweet? So basically, was okay until we got our meals and then it was disappointing honestly. My husband is saying he is not going back and I have to agree unless we go for appetizers and wine only.

    Took some friends there for the first time, and the only issue was that we waited 30 minutes past our reservation time. Bar was very crowded so we couldn't sit or stand in there while we waited. We all stood in the tasting area. This was a Thur night. But, the food was very good, and of course the wine is always enjoyable. Our friends really enjoyed their experience. Our waiter was awesome and had a great personality. Will surely go there again as we are wine members and enjoy our visits there!

    Every meal we have had at Cooper's Hawk has been fantastic. There is not a single dish on the menu that has not been delicious. This time we had a apple bourbon glazed pork chop, butter squash gnocchi, and a goat cheese/roasted veg flatbread. All delicious. Great wine selection and decent craft beers as well. Prices are more than fair for the quality of food.

    I made a reservation on Open Table for my friends birthday for a Wednesday night. I was called by the restaurant to confirm my reservation the day before. The night of the dinner - my group did not get seated until an hour after the reservation time - so 8:45 on a Wed after everyone worked all day. The restaurant was not packed - there was no good reason given. Everyone was over tired and VERY hungry by then. Despite good food and wine, if it's that hard to get a table even with a reservation , it would not be a pick for another dinner.

    We had to wait 15 minutes past our reservation to get seated. The food, for the price, was pretty sub-par. Kind of like a souped up Friday. I had a pesto ceasar salad and a flatbread and both were just meh, the salad was bordering on flavorless. This place is known for the wine and I got a flight, the wine was bland and the house red was not drinkable. This is coming from someone who has drank Franzia and Two Buck Chuck in the past copiously, not a wine snob. I guess I am not understanding the hype here at all. If looking for a great winery in Chicagoland area, I would recommend City Winery.

    We have visited Cooper's Hawk close to a dozen times, and, generally, we try something new each time. Every time, the food has been outstandingly delicious. This includes their soups and appetizers. They serve only the wines they produce, so we have settled on 3 or 4 favorites. They do produce some seasonal wines, but we usually stick with those we know we enjoy. You are welcome to taste any wine before you order it, and you may order flights, which provide a good overview of their wine categories. They have a wine club worth hearing about. It is frequently a busy place, so can get noisy. Service is usually welcoming and knowledgeable, but can be a little slower during busy times. We keep going back!

    Service for my reservation following a wine tasting at the wine bar was very impressive and personalized - A+! Food is overall nice but not remarkable. Go for their monthly wine/cheese pairings - this is where they really shine! In season, patio is relaxing and best choice in the house. Noise level inside is a real problem if you plan on having a conversation, though.

    Three times we had to go back and forth because they couldn't get my reservation correct!! The girls at the hosts' table seemed lost, I even heard one say that they believe they have our reservation away....Not good guys. A place like that should have all aspects in order. And my fiancee and I were early... Other than that, experience was fantastic. We would definitely go back for the food, dessert and wine

    This was one of our most memorable dinners out with our family. The server was extremely accomodating, helpful, and pleasant. The food was superb, and the wine selections go without saying. The attention to a gluten-intolerance by both the server and chef was commendable. Our child was very pleased with selections on the childrens' menu and his meal was good, too.

    With a reservation, we were seated promptly at a corner table with a great view. Our server Nathan was very knowledgable, courteous and keenly aware that we were there to take our time. We ordered the Pinot Gris, the Ahi Tuna (starter) and the sampler plate which all provided various flavors to get our juices going and set fine mood. We could have stopped there. Seriously, you could go in to have wine and appetizers and you'd be satisfied. We, however, stayed for dinner, ordering the Filet entree and the Ahi Tuna entree. Both dishes were excellent. Nathan was kind enough to serve a beautiful desert selection in honor of our anniversary. A very enjoyable evening.

    The food is very good and service is great. This place is large and always packed! My only disappointment is with their wines. They are average. I had a Malbec that was lacking character. I am a wine snob with a fully stocked cellar so my expectation are high but this was less than I'd expect from a much lesser chain.
