    We arrived right at 7pm for our dinner reservation and were seated right away. The restaurant was busy and the noise level was up, but not intrusive. The Waite staff was excellent and kept things moving all evening. We decided on the sampler menu for both my wife and me. There were several delicious food morsels added to those listed on the menu. We decided not to do the wine recommendations as we had brought a bottle with us. Each course was absolutely delicious, we joked with our waiter that were going to lick the plates. We could not have asked for a nicer all-round experience to celebrate my wives birthday. She really appreciated my choice of Hawk's to celebrate her birthday and we both highly recommend this restaurant.

    A genuinely refined and luxurious experience from beginning to end. From the pleasant greeting from the hostess, friendly and knowledgeable service by the bartender, attentive but not pushy waiter, to the incredibly delectable dishes and perfect wine pairing, all of which makes for an unforgettable experience. Did I mention the food was seriously delicious?

    Four of us dined for our daughters 40th birthday. We had a reservation and were seated immediately, which is rare. Two ordered the short ribs...delicious..one ordered pork chop..also very tasty. I ordered the Baramundi (fish) and was not impressed. It was salty and and a very small piece. Wouldn't order it again but definitely will return to Hawk's. BTW...our waiter was excellent. Also, it would be nice if there were a couple of wine offerings under the $68 mark, which was the least expensive.

    No doubt Hawks has the potential to be one of the best dining experiences in N CA. Food and ambiance are top notch; every item on the menu I've ever tasted has been wonderful. But the reason I still can't put Hawks in the list of all-time "Greats" is their inconsistencies with service. Unfortunately the first time I dined at Hawks in 2008 I had one of the best waiters I'd ever experienced. Since then, no server has come close. Bar was set high and I've been underwhelmed since. My first waiter was connected molecularly to Molly's menu, and was so confident in his ability to understand the tastes of his customers. I trusted him to pick my courses and he delivered. To go from good to great, Hawks needs this type of service every single time.

    We dine at Hawks frequently, but this Saturday we brought some friends from out of town who were equally impressed with Hawks. At first, we were going to go with the tasting menu, but after having so many successful meals with our favorites, we decided to stick with those options and Hawks did NOT disappoint. This is the place to eat when your looking for stylish food and top notch service. Great experience per usual.

    My husband and I dined at Hawk's recently for an anniversary dinner. Our server asked right away if we were there to celebrate a special occasion, and from the moment we answered "yes," she went above and beyond to make our meal at Hawk's a memorable one (though I suspect, had we answered "no," the experience would have been just as delightful). The food, the service, and the overall experience were incredible; we will definitely return. I highly recommend Hawk's for your next special occasion.

    We came here for my husband's birthday on a friend's recommendation. The caprese salad was so refreshing. Their shortribs are really their specialty. I haven't had anything like it until that night. It was absolutely delicious! The strawberry and lemongrass souffle didn't knock my socks off. We'll try the chocolate dessert next time.

    The food was a huge disappointment. For such a lovely atmosphere, my husband and I were quite disappointed in the food. We had made reservations at least 5 days in advance and were seated at a table by the kitchen. We asked to move and were accommodated; however I would have preferred that we didn't have to ask for a better table.

    The food was good to very good but nothing to rave about for either taste or value. The best thing we had was the Hawk's Bar for dessert which is highly recommended. The service was exceptional, a very knowledgeable waiter that could talk intelligently to both the menu and wine list. The ambience is about as good as it can get in a shopping center with no view to enhance the setting. I'd asked for a quiet table for two and was nicely accomodated in the back dining room where the noise level was less than half of that in the main dining room.

    We were seated for almost 1/2 hour before our order was taken (and after we asked the hostess to find the waiter). We also had to request bread twice. Several tables that were seated after us received their food before we did. Our waiter did a disappearing act several other times later. On the plus side, my hamburger & fries were first-class. Though the description of my friends' meal was a bit misleading - something like wedge chicken salad - the chicken, prepared sous vide, was the best my friends had ever tasted. They expected a wedge of iceberg lettuce and were pleased to find gem lettuce instead. It was clear I what the "wedge" was. The Hawk Bar was enough for three; it was hard not to moan aloud when eating it. Fantastic!

    We added 4 more to our little group & dined here the following night as well because the food and service are always spot-on. I feel it's one of the only places in the Granite Bay/Roseville/Rocklin area that can be counted on for good food AND service. Plus, it's unique to the area so it makes it even nicer to take out-of-town guests to a place they cannot experience in their hometown.

    Three courses for $30+$12 for bottomless mimosas..great deal! The food was wonderful. Sunday brunch @Hawks is a fixed menu. I started with the Lemon Cornmeal Pound Cake, Honey Mascarpone and Blueberry Compote. It was wonderful! The lemon shone through the light cake so well. Next I had Custard Baked French Toast,Summer Berries and Toasted Almonds,Whipped Honey Butter. I must say it was the best french toast I have ever had, it was really great and filling. For the desert course I had butterscotch crÈme caramel,Toasted Hazelnuts and Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Gelato which finished off a great meal well. One more note.....I enjoyed no less than 5 mimosas during this meal. They do not cheap out on the bottomless part like some places.

    Hawks is usually one of our favorites restaurants, but the past few times we've been the food has been off. For instance, I ordered the summer chopped vegetable salad, then the Branzino fish. The fish entrée was served with the exact same vegetable salad, only with the fish on top. Seems to be lots of the same thing happening on other dishes. This seems a bit lazy to me, rather than coming up with other sides to serve with the entrees. The fish was a bit overcooked too. Just seems like something has changed in the kitchen. Service is still way over the top though. We will give it another try, but wondering what's up these days.

    My wife and I have same birthday and we decided to celebrate at Hawk's with our daughter. It was my second time eating here. We were very tempted to try the tasting/wine pairing for the table but I had visions of braised short ribs dancing in my head from the prior visit so I elected to have it again. All I can say is run do not walk to get this fantastic short rib served over a sweet corn sauce/relish that complemented the rib expertly. The wife had the pork and my daughter had the duck confit, both great but the short rib was the star :-) Great wait person very knowledgeable who suggested we pair a chocolate/caramel martini with beignets dusted with cinnamon and served with a caramel sauce as a decadent end to a great meal....well played!

    We went to Hawk's for our anniversary, and everything was perfect. What I liked best is that the food was not the standard fare. I had the chicken and the skin was crispy and delicious (forget the calories), and for dessert I had the Hawks candy bar which was to die for. The caramel was yummy. The wine list was extensive and expensive, but worth every dime. Don't go here if you are on a budget.

    Two friends and I celebrated a belated birthday dinner at Hawks. Every minute was a delight. The service was impeccable, and the food met any expectations and more. Two of us had the Barramundi and the other chose the salmon. All of us were very pleased with our choice. Our favorite appetizer was the Buffalo mozzarella with grilled bread…..excellent. And the desserts were a challenge to decide, but the Hawks Bar and the Brioche Beignets won out. The waiter must have overheard our birthday conversation because I was surprised with a Happy Birthday message written in chocolate on my dessert plate with a small lighted birthday candle set in a scoop of ice cream. Obviously our choice for another night out!…..or more!!

    My wife and I have been to Hawks several times, and on this occasion we had another couple join us. I indicated that the noise level was energetic, but that was only true until we asked to be seated outside. It had been a very warm day so the restaurant had not set up its outdoor tables earlier, but by 7:00 pm the temperature was going down and it was quite comfortable. As has been true on our previous visits, the food was delicious, and prepared exactly right. Our friends were very impressed with both the quality of the food and the service we received. Our server was attentive without being intrusive, and was quite useful in helping us select menu items all the way through to desert.

    I had the fish with a salad starter while my bride of 52 years had the short rib (house specialty). The food was very good but doesn't reach the outstanding category. The wine list is good but the prices for wine are as high as I have seen anywhere. I paid $15 for a small glass of the cheapest chardonnay.

    Hawks is our favorite restaurant in the Roseville/Granite Bay area including many well known restaurants such as Ruth Chris Steak House. The food is consistently excellent. We had a soufflé which did not require early ordering. The entrees were excellent, as usual, including delicious short ribs and ribeye steak.
