    If you have a family member who dines at their usual spots, this is a good place to get someone like that to try something new. There's literally a little of everything to choose from - even for those 'meat and potato' folks who dine within their boundaries. We also had a differing age group. From 50 to 89, each of us was able to find something on the menu that appealed to us and the service was wonderful. Definitely had been there before - this time on a Sunday - same great food and wine. Same Great service :)

    Usually I am VERY impressed but this time, not so much. I had a 8:15 reservation for two. We were called at 8:50 to be seated, but by that time we had already found a table in the bar area. I went for the lobster bisque which is usually really good but, after tasting my husband's lobster bisque, I decided to pass. Not the consistency I'd had in the past and nor was the taste the same. Maybe they stretch it towards the end of the evening. I think I will go during the week instead. My appetizer was good, his entre was just ok.

    Restaurant offers great service. Enjoyed the wine flight(tester of 4 glasses if wine) and cheese platter. The medallions were cooked nicely but dry. Crab cakes were small and not lump crab meat. Pretzel bread great. The food was good but nothing that would get me to go back. Sorry.

    I can't quite put my finger on this place. It's very busy & has good food but I was disappointed with a few things: 1. We had a 630 reservation & arrived early & sat at the bar. We left the bar to go to the table & weren't sat until 650. 2. I love wine & tasted 4 of theirs & can't say I thought any of them were all that great. 3. The vegetables were too salty & we told our server this. They were inedible. All we got was a "Sorry, I'll tell the kitchen." 4. We went there for a birthday dinner. The server knew this. There wasn't a free dessert, a drink or even a candle put in the dessert we did order. The appetizers & main entrees (south of the border eggrolls & steaks) were excellent. But they need to improve on some of this other stuff!

    Have dined there several times and the food and service has been consistently great. They have an appetizer with several cheeses that changes every couple of months and is always good. Wine selection is very good. They are oftentimes trying to bring forth new items. A good value for the money.

    You can enjoy a simple meal like a burger or salad, or a nice full-plated entrée. Plenty of wines, made by the company themselves, to choose from. We always enjoy our visit there and the ambiance is good, too. Reservations are recommended as they get extremely busy. Also have wine tastings up front, great sweets and a cute little shop to mill around in while you wait.

    This was the heart of lunchtime 12:30. We were first seated in the main dining area (there were 4 of us) it was so loud and the tables were so close together we could hardly talk above the din. We asked to be moved outside which they did. Our food was good we each ordered something different. Our waiter however was not that great, he did not come back to check on us and we had to ask for the bill after a long wait.

    Cooper's Hawk has a menu full of tasty food and enough variety to accommodate almost anyone. Their wine list is big enough that you will have some decisions to make. They also have beer and good mixed drinks. Notably they not only have coffee, but also make the full gamut of espresso drinks (cappuccino, latte, etc). On the down side, they make most of their pastas with chicken broth, so half of their meatless options aren't vegetarian.

    I had made a reservation for four people at 5:30 and I arrived first with one other person and was seated. Come 6:00 we were wondering where the other two people could be, I went to the front lobby and they were standing there. They had been waiting for 30 minutes. The hostess had told them there was no reservation for them even though we were already seated and waiting. A 30 minute delay like that should never have happened if you're going to seat part of a party you should realize that there other still others waiting. Otherwise the server was great and the food was delicious.

    We were 2 couples, out for our seasonal-catch-up-on-everything dinner. The Cooper's Hawk wine is wonderful, as we all tried different selections, red and white, and not one of us was disappointed. The food was great, the shrimp appetizer and the crab cakes were wonderful and satisfying appetizers. Each of us chose something different, from fish to filets. No complaints! I recommend We joined the wine club. Not a bad deal, includes 2 tastings a week and 2 bottles a month. The noise level was a little much, regardless where you are seated, but for us it was not an issue. We will be returning.

    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.
