Diner Reviews
  • "Everything was WONDERFUL, my only dislike would be the noisy level being quite loud! It would not keep us from returning though"
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "We went to enjoy a family dinner before everyone goes back to school/start a new job, etc. We are used to it being a little chilly and had come equipped with sweaters but the howling gale around our feet just was well, freezing! The food was up to its usual high standard and with a bottle from our wine club membership, very reasonable in price for five people. The service was good and unobtrusive. But, please, turn down the air people!"
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Hostess who seated us didn't look like she liked her job. Not a smile on her face. Floors around us had food thrown on it. Not once did we see anyone come and sweep up under tables. Pretty gross eating such amazing food with floors being food covered. Saw hostess's wiping off tables..no busboys???? Didn't seem right..ate here so many times, food was great..our waiter was amazing!! But surroundings with bad dirty floors was kind of disappointing.."

  • "We've never had a bad meal here. It's just a little loud for friendly conversation."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • " Enjoyed creative combinations on menu. Appreciated tasting wine before ordering nice service. Loud."

    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "Great place to eat and to combine your meal with the perfect wine. The food, service and of course the wine was great? The Reubar wine is my favorite."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Great place. Great food, great service, great staff."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "We always enjoy the food and wine at this restaurant. Service was outstanding too! Our server was nice enough to let us linger and enjoy instead of pushing us out at the end of June food course."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "This restaurant is my #1 favorite, however, we went this Saturday and it was disappointing. The issues were small ones but still not what I expected from my favorite restaurant. The restaurant lacked in the cleanliness department and our request for a booth close to the entrance (due to surgery) was not met. In fact ,we were led all through the place to the very back corner of the dining room. The steak I ordered was exceptional as always but the service and attention we usually receive was notably missing. All in all I wish I had chosen another restaurant to celebrate my birthday."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Normally I would give 5 stars to this restaurant but my last meal and service were so-so. I belong to the wine club (highly recommended) as their wine is outstanding and such a great deal. I have yet to be disappointed by their food except this time I tried chicken for the first time and it was pretty dry and the sauce was lacking flavor, very bland. It was the chicken saltimbocca. My wife had the Back and bleu salad which is amazing. We also had the Mexican drunken shrimp which is probably the best tasting shrimp appetizer I've ever had."

  • "I found the Wheeling version a pale imitation of the restaurant in Arlington Heights."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "A huge place with a lot of food choices for all types of eaters."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "Great restaurant with very good wine selection and very nice food selections. nice ambience - great for date night"
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "We go here often and enjoy it every time. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. Food was good and a good value. We are members of the wine club and one of the really nice things is that you can have the wine of the month delivered to your table for your meal. That cuts down on the wine portion of the bill."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "Consistent good food and the wine selection is large and reasonable. Tried the Mediterranean salad with salmon and was pleasantly surprised--very good. Usually order the Dana Chicken which is another very good dish. This restaurant is a nice find, food good, wine good and prices are reasonable."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "the menu has quite a big selection.I love their wine list and the lovely one"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "I wasn't as happy with the scallops as the last time I was there. They were more caramelized and larger in size the last time I visited. A couple even seemed a little under done. I probably will not order them the next time I visit."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Took 10 minutes for waiter to initially show up , we needed to ask for service, seemed as if they were short on staff , service was not that attentive . Meal was great"
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • " Beginning with our desire to bring seated in a booth granted, to our fantastic waitress wishing us a happy anniversary, to the complimentary champagne, to the yummy dinner beginning with the outstanding bisque, to the to-die-for dark chocolate truffle -- our evening was a spectacular celebration of love and time together."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Food was adequate but uninspired. In fact their best quality choice - the filet mignon sliders - I was told had been eliminated in September 2013. Salads are chopped so fine and laden with dressing that it is impossible to discern the freshness of the salad. The chicken lemone was glopped with a heavy sauce over a deep fried preparation. There was nothing light or delicate. The menu was basically cheap industrial food. The service was passable and the table layout placed two round tables of six beside each other. The overall noise level made it unpleasant for even our small group. Only plus - a calorie count section of the menu. Suitable for only after 9 eating - it should not be confused with dining despite the extensive wine list."

  • "I live in the city and have a ton of great unique restaurants to choose from, but when i'm in the suburbs, Coopers Hawk is my go-to restaurant! I've had a good selection of things on the menu and all of their dishes are great!"
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "Love the wine decanters for the table (my colleague bought one)"
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "The food was acceptable. I wouldn't say it was anything outstanding. Our waiter seemed to be rushed and always on the move. He came to the table for a drink order and got two orders and was ready to dart off, before getting the order for the whole table. Seating was a bit tight with customers chairs backed up to one another. This made it a challenge to move chairs."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "This is by far my girlfriends' and my favorite winery and restaurant. After finding this gem, we have been there every week for drinks and/or dinner. Amazing, extensive menu with many options for cleaner eating, vegetarians and the "normal" people. Wine collection is great - love the flights, especially since they are customizable."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "I have been to Cooper's numerous times and am a long time wine club member - the food is always great - Service is usually good - and a couple of times great. This time - we ordered everyone the Lobster/Crab Bisque and the Calimari - never got the Calimari - the bisque came out - which was really good - and then we waited - thinking the Calimari was coming out - but then the food came - never really mentioned it as it was probably a good thing (we would have been too full to eat the dinner!) - we also had to ask for the pretzel bread - which is great - and also our water a couple of times - good personality on the waitress - may have just had too many larger tables (we had 7)"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Loved walking in an welcomed with a glass of wine, we sat outside to a delicious dinner. Love their flatbreads and sandwiches as much as their entrees."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Cooper's Hawk is very good. The staff at the hostess desk are always a bit rude and don't make eye contact, but everyone else is nice. They do wine tastings while you wait and then when you get to your table, there are so many delicious choices for food! I wish they had a bit more vegetarian options, but the ones they do are great. Parking can be a problem--you can almost never park in their lot, but there is overflow at the Westin next door, so it is not an issue."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "It's nice to go to a restaurant, know that you can have lunch in less than two hours, and still enjoy your food. The food is good, plentiful, and the service is always friendly."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Had a great meal at Coopershawk for my son's birthday! THe customer service was unbelievable! Meaning outstanding! And the food and wine were excellent as always!"
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "We arrived 15 minutes early for our 4:00 pm reservation as we had come directly from a local theater, and they made us wait with my 92-year old mother in law until exactly 4:00 pm (then seated us in an empty dining room). Our food was just mediocre. The grouper was swimming in oil/butter not the mustard sauce it should have had. The salmon special and a filet that was ordered were great, although they didn't have any baked potatoes! The turkey/brie sandwich which is usually good, looked like it had been dropped. In addition the dining room was uncomfortably warm. We have tried this restaurant location before with mixed reviews, this was definitely our last time going there. There is absolutely no consistency."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "I'm sadly let down by Cooper's hawk. I've dined many times before. I made an online reservation well in advance. I was celebrating our 1 year anniversary. I asked for a table for 2 with a specific bottle of chilled wine to be waiting. When we got there they totally missed our reservation. You could tell because the hostesses looked panicked. No apology or anything. It ruined the mood I was going for. Plus our waiter was getting way too friendly leaning in our booth and so on. The food was great though. Front of house needs to get their act together. The reso was made hours in advance and its all about details and customer service. Will not celebrate any future special occasions here."

  • "Took my sister and our spouse's here for my sisters bday dinner. Food was good, service was good. Did not have to wait for our table past our reservation time. Great place to dine!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "We had a good experience. Eight of us had played golf, wine-tasted and had dinner so it was a long day. Our server was exceptional. The noise level was loud but we were loud too so that was OK. Food was very good. My favorite food choice was the calamari."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "I felt my food was not worth the price. We were given a free sample of the wine of the month when we walked in. When we tried to order the wine of the month we were told we had to join their wine club in order to buy a glass! The waiter was O.K. but not great. It was quite noisy in the restaurant."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "We enjoyed the evening. I just find it get to noisy for me."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "We always enjoy dinner at Coopers Hawk. Their "Barrel Reserve" red wine is always wonderful and I am partial to their braised shortrib. Service is always top notch."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Greay dining -accoustic's were not good due to "sceetching" "ladies" in next booth. Ah much better when they finally left!"
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "We left our show early and arrived well before our reserrvation time. The hostess was gracious. Our server pointed out several items on the menu that I would not have thought to try. She was very knowledgable. Love the multiple "Surf and Turf" choices."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "My family and I LOVE the Barrington, IL location - from the beautiful patio, to the great service, to the exceptional food where you want to savor each bite. Unfortunately, we were not anywhere near as satisfied with this Wheeling location. Service was poor, the food (the same food that I always get at the Barrington location) was adequate, and the patio (which we chose not to use) backs up to a parking lot and street so on top of the adequate food, you get the extra added benefits of car exhaust and street noises. I'm so glad that we've had the opportunity to dine multiple times in the Barrington location, because otherwise, I would never go to a Cooper's Hawk restaurant again. In this case, I will just avoid this particular location."
