    This was the first time there for both of us. Staff was very friendly. Attentive, but not overbearing. Food was excellent. We each had a wine flight that was very good. Will definitely plan to go back again.

    I met with 3 girlfriends for a lovely Holiday dinner. The warm spice wine is a hit with us. We also truly enjoy the variety of the menu. Our server was open to multiple checks which worked well since 3 of the 4 did not have cash. The restaurant was perfect for our little celebration!

    Once again, my wife and I had a great meal at Coopers Hawk. We are consistently impressed by the food as we felt...you know its a wine bar that serves food. My all time favorite is still the short ribs on a bed of risotto. Also had a veggie flatbread for app this time instead of the thai lettuce wraps and it was delicious. Top it off with a bottle of their very smooth and rich Syrah and its a terrific meal. Only downside was waiting 20 mins for our reservation but it was a Saturday night so....

    This was my second visit to the naperville location, but the first time for a wine tasting before we had dinner. The girl that helped us at the wine tasting was very slow, and we almost didn't make our 4 o'clock reservation. We had to remind her our place for the next wine. Didn't say anything about the wines she would pour either. After looking at the other servers pouring wine, we noticed that she wasn't pouring as much as the others were. When we were seated at our table we were greeted by our server, Bob was very nice and enthusiastic. You could tell he loved his job. Great service. We were discussing our reason for being there for our friends birthday, and he acted like he would send something out to surprise her, but he never did. It would have been nice and would have given him a bigger tip than 22%, but not since it was our first for a birthday dinner I didn't know if that was a normal thing to send out a nice treat. I would definitely go back.

    We went there for my husband's birthday for lunch during a weekday and also to pick up our wine as we are members. Excellent lunch, not too noisy, and good service. Was a very enjoyable experience. We got to use our birthday coupons which made it extra special, along with the birthday dessert they provided with a candle. Very nice!

    people flock to this place - its hard to get a reservation. I don't get it since the food is not very good. They have a huge menu but its just not great. The wine stuff is fun and they have alot of circuses around the wine. Cute gift shop. But if you are a foodie then skip this place. i got the shrimp and it did not pair well with the guacamole on the plate. The bisque soup was really good though.

    I picked the restaurant for this double date lunch. Wow - we were treated the BEST by Monica our server who made our dining experience a wonderful feast. Just enough interaction to keep our lunch moving over the 3 hours we were there, never pushing us ahead or out. The food, wine, appetizers and dessert were all tasty. We took home one of the specials since it sounded so good and we could not order more food for lunch. We are a tough crowd to please since we eat out very often, but this place is now on our list of favorites.

    Went for an early lunch on Sunday after Naperville marathon. Sat in winery which was lovely. Great service by Jennifer. Drinks were quick and food was hot and delicious. We loved both the mushroom soup and lobster bisque, both standouts and reasons to return! The stuffed mushroom and pork tostadas apps served as meals for 2 of us along with the soup while our guys got a chicken sandwich and chicken madeira. Loved both. The only problem was with our doggie bags. My husband was disappointed when arriving home didn't have the fries that went with the sandwich!! He hadn't eaten but a few and was looking forward to them for later. They were not included in our take home as they are packed in the kitchen.

    CH is a great place to dine. The menu is unique, tasty and has so many wonderful dishes, it is often difficult to choose only one entree to eat! The wine list is extensive, as is their full bar selection of spirits and craft beers. Be sure to have a reservation during peak times as the walk in times will be very long otherwise. The wine tasting room is a great way to kill some of the wait time should you need to.

    I looked at the menu prior to going there, saw the prices and therefore had an expectation of what the food should taste like. I was left a bit disappointed. The soup of the day was mushroom which had ground up mushroom in it rather than chunks. Not only did it look very unappetizing, it had the mouth feel of baby food. Taste was good, but not great. I had the 9oz filet and Mary's potatoes for my main course - potatoes were excellent. The filet was a nice cut of meat and was cooked a perfect medium, but it lacked flavor - except of course the burnt taste around the edges (and when I say burnt, I don't mean that nice char that it should have). Excellent service, nice decor.

    The food was delicious as we're the drinks. Everything was moderately priced. I had the lobster bisque which was delicious followed by a ravioli stuffed with a really smooth sweet squash in a light cream sauce with seafood. It was really good. In fact, I'll be having the same exact thing the next time I go. My only complaint is that it's hard to get in on a weekend. Make your reservations several days in advance 3 to 4 days at least. Without one you may have a 2+ hour wait.

    We got there early - so we sat in the bar and Nil took care of us. She was probably the nicest bartender I have EVERY met!! She not only took time to talk to us - she offered us some wine tasting before our friends got there and she explained how they wine club worked. We ordered some pizza and I guess it got lost because everyone else got food around us that ordered after us and she said that someone took ours - so she gave it to us for free!! Honestly - we very much enjoyed her company - it was clear that she liked her job and she enjoyed talking with people and we want to come back just to have her serve us some more wine!!

    Let me start by saying we had a wonderfull experience and a fabulous meal. That being said the table side commercial for the wine club has to go. I understand the "Upsale". But, give the pitch while taking our order then go away. Our server interupted our meal no less than 6 times with the pitch. Don't ruin the experience with endless nagging. BTW, We did join the club.

    Good wine- coopers Hawk has a fabulous selection of different varieties of wine. Their best is the LUX but is you like good reds and don't want to sprint for the $47 lux cab, try the zin/ cab blend at $29. Good and it opens up necely. They also do a good job of matching their entrees with the best wine to drink. They food is very good. This time my husband had a tilapia salad (which he enjoyed) and I tried the short ribs. The flavor was great BUT my meal was NOT hot. I didn't want to send it back for fear it would have gone into a microwave, so I went ahead and ate it. Again, flavor was excellent and it went well with the cab zin blend. But I like my food hot! Service was professional and well paced.

    The food was amazing! the choice of wines was perfect! I enjoyed the trio medallion (could have left out the horseradish one - egghhhh) presentation was spot on. the restaurant is beautiful and classy. the wine bar for tasting is great! there is a separate bar area thats great too. the only dislike --- our waiter wasn't very good. we sat down at 1215p, got our food order taken at 1pm (45min just to take our food order!!) our soup/salads arrived i had one spoonful and then our main entree arrived! i was upset because i really wanted to enjoy my soup and i felt very rushed, i asked the waiter to please take it and keep it warm, to make sure that the meat didn't over cook ( i like mine medium).

    Our food was excellent, as was the service, and the guesswork was taken out of wine pairing--menu suggested wine pairings (own label) and free wine samples were encouraged. We were there on a Tuesday and it was energetic and packed out . . . but a bit too noisy for a date night. Since it is near a lot of hotels, there seemed to be a lot of business groups there--a weekend night might have a different feel.
