    Overall the South Barrington location is very nice. The tasting room was very small and was over filled. Our group of 4 had a difficult time getting to the tasting counter, even when we did it was a snug fit for all of us. Food and service was great.

    Been here twice and both times the food was terrible, Sawdust chicken covered with sauce to mask the dryness of the meat. I am amazed that this place is so busy, but then I am amazed Chilie's and the Olive Garden are in business. Hecktic and loud not a relaxing dinging experience. I am out.

    The restuarant and wine bar was as busy and buzzing as usual. We had a reservation, but after waiting 45 minutes we finally inquired about our table and were sat within 5 minutes. We didn't mind much since we were sampling the wine, thankfully we were not on a schedule. It was my friend's first time there, and she really enjoyed the food, wine and atmosphere. Our waiter, Bradly, was fantastic! He did not rush us, he knew the menu and the wines quite well, and was very accommodating without being overbearing!

    This was our first time visiting this restaurant. Service was very prompt and friendly. Only a 2 minute wait for our reservation time. Server Sam was very informative and helpful with the menu choices. Very happy with the different choices of cheese in the cheese & wine sampling. One of our entree choices was average, Surf and Turf - Grouper and Crusted Pork Chop (the chop was quite dry) the menu stated it was accompanied with asparagus and Mary's potatoes. I received carrots, while the mashed potatoes were tasteless and dry. The other entree was Blackened Ahi Tuna which was prepared very well, so one of the two was worth the cost of dinner. Wine selection had enough variety to choose something new.

We were served in a timely manner and everyone gave a thumbs up to the restaurant choice. We have a monthly outing with he neighborhood and would recommend others to come.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 10/29/2014
    Seems the service can't keep up with the volume. Group was placed at the busiest (high traffic) table in the place (front corner by entry and by server pathway), 1 entree was completely wrong, 1 soup was cold, server didn't return to check how things were, so the guest with the wrong meal chose to eat it anyway. Food quality is okay at best, but both it, and the service have gone downhill the last 12 months. However, they still seem to pack in every single person they can. The good news for those that continue to enjoy it, you'll have 5 less people to compete with for space.

    Always love this place and usually get Thai Lettice wraps which are terrific but got BBQ chicken salad this time which was also good on the healthy menu. Also waitstaff is great at keeping drinks refilled. Couple small glitches this go around-messed up my companion's order but righted it and didn't bring anything for bday celebration-although it was mentioned when I checked in. NBD as she didn't want dessert necessarily but still.....

    We went with another couple. Clearly the wine is the focus here, which isn't a problem with us. They were knowledgeable about their wines and always willing to sample any to us. I got the risotto with braised short rib in it. Outstanding. Our friends got 2 of the chicken dishes which were very good too. My husband, though, got a filet mignon. They served him FROZEN broccoli as the side. Seriously????? You can't get fresh broccoli? I was floored by this. At the price point of this restaurant and our bill (over $200.00) they should serve fresh vegetables. Very poor choice.

    Cooper's Hawk is the place we go when we want an excellent dinner and great service. We were there friday night for dinner and our waiter could not have been more knowledgeable or helpful. When I couldn't decide between the grouper or beef medallions, he recommended the surf and turf so I could get both! And both were excellent!! Definitely a first class dining experience!

    This is a restaurant that remains popular. They have a huge menu, lots of choices, We had an appetizer plate with tacos, crab cakes, potstickers and calamari. It was ok. The calamari was nowhere near the wonderful fresh calamari I had at other restaurants. For an entree, I had the scallops. I couldn't eat them -- there was an off-taste and they didn't seem fresh. I ended up having some of the ginger salmon my friends ordered and that was better. The mashed potatoes with the salmon dish were delicious -- soft, fluffy and flavorful. It's interesting that the waiter never questioned why I left all the scallops on my plate -- usually waiters notice and ask why.

    A dear friend and myself chose Coopers to celebrate her move since both of us had previously enjoyed your restaurant .....we had 6:15 reservations and were seated at 6:10pm From the moment we were seated, everything was 5 star service. The server introduced herself (don't remember her name, had a ponytail and was training a girl). Both of them were wonderful! They gave us the appropriate amount of attention, information and suggestions to make our dining experience perfect. The food was fabulous! From the flatbread beginning to the Choclate bread pudding we enjoyed every bite!
