    My wife and I go to the South Barrington Cooper's Hawk once a month. It's our date night! We set our reservations and arrive an hour to two hours earlier to enjoy a relaxing wine tasting. The staff is super friendly even when their extremely busy. And the management always goes out of their way to assure you're enjoying yourself and ask if their is anything more you need to make the night enjoyable. Food is very good with lots of inspiring varieties to the menu. Its fun to explore their different meals. The Blackened Ahi Tuna and the Country Rigatoni are incredible. Overall, an excellent place to frequent often. You'll never be disappointed!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/30/2014
    We arrived 5 minutes before our reservation time and got seated 25 minutes after our reservation time. Similar sized groups were arriving 10-15 minutes after us and getting seated within minutes. 15 minutes after our reservation time had passed, we asked when we would be seated. The hostess indicated we were next, and apparently that meant we were "third" because 2 other similar sized tables (2-3 people) were seated and we still waited. Our waitress, food and wine were great and made up for the issues at the hostess station.

    I have been to Cooper's Hawk several times and am never disappointed. The food is always excellent and the service is impeccable. I had the filet mignon medallions (2 with Parmesan crust & 1 with blue cheese crust), asparagus and instead of the mashed potatoes that comes with the meal, I had their Asian slaw. It was all so good! My husband had the surf and turf with the soy salmon, grilled vegetables, wasabi mashed potatoes and pretzel crusted pork. He said it was all very good, too. It was our anniversary so we shared a dessert (on them!!) and we had the creme brulee. That is our favorite and it is delicious! My husband and I don't drink alcohol but have heard their wine is wonderful, too.

    A reservation is a must, they seem to have a big crowd almost everynight. Arrive an hour early, take your time with a wine tasting and soon your table will be ready. With dinner try the "Barrel Wine"

    Good spot for business dinner - service and food excellent, not crazy expensive, for those who are not wine experts its nice to not have to pretend you know anything about wine since they have wine recommendations by each entree and these are reasonably priced. Noise was not a problem even though they were full, we had foreigners at the table and they had no issue hearing the conversation.

    This was a first time visit at this restaurant. For not being visible from the street/road, it certainly was packed. I had never heard of this restaurant and I ran into it perusing the list on Open Table for my sons birthday. Everything was good. We received more than a few wine samples before deciding on a bottle of Gewurtztraminer. The lobster bisque soup was excellent. Our server was very friendly and informative.

    My husband and I have been going there 3 years for dinner, wine tasting and have had special parties of 30-60 people. We have loved the place, but we must say that it is changing. And not for the better. It seems that with your growth and success, you are changing things for the worse that made you successful. More corporate vs the small family feel it once was. Flexibility in menus for parties we once had are now not allowed. Soup seems more watered down. Portion sizes smaller. Don't change what made Coopers Hawk and great place for customers to go. We've noticed these things and so has others. Still one of our favorites, but these changes has made us go elsewhere for our parties and dinners resulting in lost business.

    Is have visited Coopers Hawk restaurant in South Barrington and Naperville. The wait service was once again outstanding. The service only compliments the food. I had the surf and turf special which was phenomenal. I joined the wine club during this visit because I have enjoyed the broad wine selection at a reasonable price. I look forward to sampling a new wine each month. It won't be soon enough for our next visit. Keep up the wonderful, food, beverage and service Coopers Hawk!

    We've been dining at Cooper's Hawk for many years now and have been wine club members for about two years. The wine tasting area can get a bit crowded during the dinner time rush, but no matter how crowded it is, the wine tasting servers take care of us. I have to say, Jeff is by far our favorite wine tasting server! The dinner menu is great and has many different choices. The servers are super friendly and the food is great!

    Everything here is amazing- except the desserts, some of which are just too sweet without any other flavor as a counter balance. The food, wine, and cocktails are all fantastic. Even the pretzel bread that they automatically bring to the table is the best pretzel bread I've ever had.

    My wife and I celebrated our 36th wedding anniversary at Cooper's Hawk this past weekend. The food was outstanding, wine choices were delicious (the Lux Chardonnay is like ambrosia), and the service was attentive and impeccable. For an early Sunday evening it was a bit crowded, but that's the mark of a popular restaurant! We will definitely visit again in the future.
