    We've been wining and dining here for over two years. Although the wines are new we always find some to lay down for a few years because they show excellent promise. And even for new wines they are quite good. I wish the chef was more creative and offered a few more dishes I can eat (lactose-intolerant) - he relies heavy on cow cheese. The dishes I can eat are very good. We have introduced several friends and all have become regulars.

    Great restaurant for any occasion! Our experience was a farewell business dinner which included associates from out of town and they loved it! The food was awesome with just the right amount of options. The Cooper's Hawk wine was great and the pairing suggestions were perfect. The service was impeccable, ask for Brian B. The atmosphere was energetic with a mixture of business associates, families and friends! I would definitely recommend this restaurant...trust me, you'll enjoy the experience!

    We love Cooper's hawk! We go every couple of months bc we love kind of far away. I joined their wine club so we plan a date night and go pick up our wines we've accumulated and well drink one with dinner and take the rest home! The club has nice perks ! The food is always awesome! The price is definitely reasonable for the excellent quality. My boyfriend is very picky bc he grew up in the restaurant industry. We love it and go often!

    My wife and I have been to Cooper's Hawk in several cities. This time was in Tampa, FL, for dinner to celebrate my wife's birthday. We shared the chicken chorizo flatbread to start along with cocktails: Hendricks martinis, very dry, up, olives. The bartender apparently is taught to shake vigorously, rather than stir, despite being asked to stir. Shaking is wrong, bruises the gin, leaves shards of ice in the drink, along with a froth that simply doesn't belong in a martini. Our main course was the "trio of fillets" for my wife and the "chimichurri hanger steak" for me, along with wine. Both were perfectly cooked and very tasty. We finished by sharing the chocolate cake. Moist, chocolately, and delicious. We'll be back!

    Fast becoming my favorite place to celebrate a friend's birthday or for a girls night out! The energy in the wine bar is refreshing and the service in the restaurant is impeccable. I love that you can have a wine flight at your dinner table and the prices are very reasonable. For a large group you can have your wine at the table in a large glass decanter with dispenser and if you mention a birthday they will bring you a special little dessert. I have been back on several occasions just to purchase some of their handcrafted wines. The food is excellent and the appetizers are very large portions. A bit of a drive for me but well worth it!

    We went there for a birthday and everything was very nice. The server was very patient with us and didn't try to rush us in and out. I thought the prices were very reasonable for the quality of food. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a nice dinning experience without the Ruth's Chris prices.

    The food, ambiance & our server were all top-notch. However, even tho we had a reservation, it took quite a long time time for them to seat us. We waited quite awhile & other people were seated ahead of us. It also took a long time between drinks, entres & dessert orders to get our food. our waiter was certainly above average, but the service wasn't.

    Took the family to Cooper's Hawk for the 1st time. The place is nice, and is very busy and is also very loud. We were seated in a back dining room where several parties of 8+ were quite drunk and extremely loud. I couldn't hear my own family members at the table. The service was good, the food was pretty good, I recommend the pork but the wines were pretty weak. If you are young, I'm sure this is a great place, I probably won't be back though as I was expecting a more relaxed atmosphere.

    Before heading from St Pete to Tampa for dinner at Cooper's Hawk I made a reservation online at opentable. My family and I arrived 20 minutes before our reservation at 9. Upon arrival we were told to wait which seemed appropriate considering we had arrived 20 minutes before our reservation, but come 9:30 we were still waiting. During 50 minute wait I saw 4 couples/ groups walk in after us and get seated before us. Needless to say, I will not be using opentable for Cooper's hawk. Im not sure who's fault it was that it took so long to get seated, maybe the hottess, maybe the computer glitched or maybe the staff was ignoring me for some odd reason. Besides the long wait, the food was fabulous and the restaurant had a great vibe.

    Everything was great. Only thing that was a negative was that, we reserved a week in advance and requested a booth. Instead we got a table and when I asked, the lady at the front desk said it was not possible at all to get a booth. However, throughout our time there, we saw walk ins that got seated at booths. I had a friend that was pregnant and would have liked the comfort of a booth instead of a chair. Oh well, we still enjoyed our dinner. Thanks.

    This is one of my favorite places, so it pains me to write this review, but this was not a good night. First, the service was off, as 4 people in my party had their food for a good five minutes before I finally received my entree. Second, my boyfriend's steak medallions were overdone, and we were told, "this is our medium rare," as if this is something to be debated. They brought a second plate, and it was cooked alright, but very bland and the potatoes were barely browned. Even the wine, which is supposed to be their forte, was off, since the Heritage blend being offered was vinegar-y. Thank heavens they offer a tasting, so I could go back to my Cooper's Hawk Red. I will be back, and I hope this was just an off night, and not a trend.

    I travel to this section of Tampa regularly and try to visit Coopers Hawk every time I'm in town. The menu is creative and eclectic, the presentation is outstanding, the service is always spot on, and the food is excellent. This was an early dinner and when we arrived it was still happy hour so we shared several appetizers. The pork belly tostadas are out of this world! The ahi tacos are divine, and the lettuce wraps are a perfect combination of flavors. And yes, Coopers is a winery as well. While I'm not a huge connoisseur of wine, the servers are well trained in offering pairing ideas and the sangrias are superb!

    In July they offered money back for wine club members to be used toward dining. We used our $40 toward a fantastic early dinner (since Fri/Sat after 4 was excluded). We both had New York Strip and it was fantastic. Dessert, as always, was heavenly. The server we had at the wine tasting area after was fantastic

    Enter the exciting winery lobby where people are at least 5 deep tasting wines, high energy. The bar area has plenty of room with happy hour 5-6 only. The tables and booths in the restaurant are lovely. The fact you can taste 2 types of wine per person at your table before making a decision is unique and the pour is ample. The menu is varied from burgers and sandwiches to gourmet entries. The food is well presented and delicious.

    We absolutely love Cooper s Hawk, but this last visit was not up to their usually high standards. We had an 830 reservation, when I let them know we were there I was given a pager. After 35 minutes I inquired to find out how much longer and was told they were waiting on us. Kitchen took nearly 30 minutes to get an appetizer out, waitress told us they were out of both sides we ordered ten minutes after ordering. We picked new sides, food came out with one side that they were "out of" and one side neither of us picked or wanted. It was well after 10 by this point. This isn't typical of this lovely place, hopefully it was just a fluke and not a result of any staff or management changes

    Don't get me wrong, we love this place, but they are not very friendly to those that have a hard time walking. We arrived early and were given a pager. My wife can not stand and there are NO chairs to sit in. There are lots of wine tasting tables to stand next to, but this doesn't work. Our reservation time came and went. After standing for 20 minutes, someone finally asked my wife if she wanted a chair. It would have been nice 20 minute before! They need to change their policy! That sort of marred dinner, but the food and service were fine after that. We now know to NEVER arrive early for a reservation.
