    food was totally overpriced for the type of restaurant.....$32 for 3 scallops is a bit over the top and they weren't good. burger had to go back for being too well done.....fries were cold .... waiter was good when we asked for something but overall either too many tables or too frazzled. had been there before and liked it the first few times...times before this was "give it one more chance" gave it the chance and it failed.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014

    Started off with great expectations. Had an early reservation, the restaurant dining room was almost empty and we were sat in the noisy bar area with our teenager. We asked to move, they were pleasant and we sat at a nice table in the dining room.We ordered a nice bottle of wine and the charcuterie plate which was very good but the waiter was using a backhanded pour and spilled the wine each time.It is an understatement to say the entrees were a great disappointment.The chicken salad tasted like cooking fuel and was uneatable. The farmers plate had either burnt or uncooked vegetables and the dry aged steak special for $41, that the waiter said was prime, was tough and gristly. The manager did comp the chicken. The comped sundae was great.

    We decided to sit outside as itwas the first cool night in a very long time. There was construction going on at the outside bar (roped off at night); therefore wasn't very pleasing to the eye. The inside tables and the restaurant itself is very appealing and looked comfy with oversized chairs and seating at some of the tables. The help was wonderful, however, the food and presentation on paddle boards, etc., made for a messy presentation and a sloppy appearance. French fries were so over done as if nuked in the microwave; making it not edible. If we were to return it would be just to sit at the outside bar (hopefully it will be finished by then) and perhaps just have a burger either inside or outside.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 10/4/2014
    This was the first time the food was a little disappointing. Two people had the mahi special and thought it was a little dry, like perhaps it had been sitting under the heat lamp. I had the spagattini, which I have had before, and I was a little disappointed as well. Caesar salad was excellent, tomato bisque was excellent. Drinks were excellent. Service was excellent. We will try again.

    We wanted to try a different restaurant, in the Jupiter, Palm Beach Gardens area. I was told to try The Cooper. We had a great dinner. We started with the Salumi Board and the Beer Braised Mussels. Both were outstanding. I even took the fresh baked bread to dip in the broth. For our main course we had the Med Chicken Paillard which tender and delicious. We also had the Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf. One of the best meat loafs I have ever tasted. Great flavor and consistency. Great cocktail and wine list along with great service. Love the farm to table concept

    My family and I went to the Cooper to celebrate my son's birthday. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. The waiter was excellent and attentive. We had the burger and hand cut fries, roasted chicken, fish and salads. It was all well-prepared and tasted delicious. The prices were reasonable for the amount of food. I will definitely go back again!

    The food was good as it always is except for my husband's fries which were cool and soggy. The mussels are outstanding and about the best I have eaten, the big disappointment was our server who was less than attentive and probably did not deserve the 20% tip we left her. She never asked if everything was ok, did we need anything else etc. with season just about to begin there needs to be better training or supervision of waitstaff. At all our previous visits to The Cooper the waitstaff was outstanding, definite A's but Saturday night a C would be the best grade she deserved. Come on Cooper you know better. We will continue to eat at restaurant because the food is so good because we have always had great service until Saturday

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 9/27/2014
    The food was good but the service/timing of meal absolutely crushed the entire experience. We ordered drinks/appetizer and kids food at same time. kids food showed up drenched in butter (we specifically said NO BUTTER) the waiter was MIA. The cocktails didn't arrive until after we finished our appetizer (at least we had water). entrees arrived 5 minutes later. Completely felt like I was being shoved out the door. we had app/entrees on table within 15 minutes of being there (drink took 10 minutes though so could only enjoy one, which was pretty good). Didn't bother ordering dessert: thought they would just make it 'to go'. My wife and I were both in SHOCK over the poor service. Too many great restaurants in PBG to deal w/ this

    We ate at the Cooper for the first time on Friday. Valet parking a must and available. Loved the menu,with a unique variety of choices and a knowledgable waiter about food prep. Everything tasted very good. We ate outdoors because it was soooooo noisy inside. Some farm style tables outside good for large groups. Food came out quickly. Once served it was hard to get our waiter back. All in all, it was very tasty, close to home, had a very busy vibe and we will return. The only concerns it seems so popular (and noisy) that it will likely be hard to get in during the season.

    Have been many times including the opening. They had a rough start with food quality and service. Now the service is somewhat better but food quality needs improving (unless they want to be an overpriced Applebee). I have not had a meal that was a WOW. I thought this time would be it. Ordered the steak and ask for it to be cooked medium (pink). It arrived WELL done. I mentioned it to the server and he acted like I should be thankful. I ate half of it and could not go the rest. One guest at the table ordered pork chops and thought it was delicious. So all was not lost.

    The food and service was great BUT the noise levels in the dining rooms was overwhelming, taking away from a very nice food experience. The food was very good, the noise ruined the taste.

    I have been twice now to Coopers. Each dish was very tasty and filling. Their house wine is fantastic as well as their mixed drinks. they make everything in house and that day. Wait staff is very knowledgeable and attentive. There are two sections to the restaurant - one with the bar and it is really loud but fun energy and the other side is not quiet but at least you can hear each other better. Decor is eclectic and seating is very comfortable. It is not kid friendly. I will go back again and again
