A recent spate of grumpy people seem to dominate the reviews right now. I disagree. My experience was fine.
Wanted to have a bite before going to clubs, the Fish and chips was very mushy and greasy. Couldn’t finish the dish as there was too much grease. Corn beef and cabbage was not a typical European type dish, the server couldn’t describe the sauce that was associated with the dish. The chicken plate was just ok, not amazing. Sadly, the only thing that is worth having is the Chicken and Wild Rice soup.
The food was tasty at Cooper. I guess they're used to getting people fed and out to the movie theaters. We felt very rushed. I ordered soup as a first course and hadn't even started it when our main entrees arrived, even though I specified that I did not want both courses at the same time. I normally would have sent them back but that didn't seem fair to my friend who had not ordered a first course. We were seated, fed and out the door in one hour. That's not what we were looking for. I normally like spending time visiting and making an event out of going to a restaurant. Next time I'll order my courses one by one to make sure we are not rushed.
Attentive service. Food and drink arrived in a quick,timely fashion.
We had great service and great food. Fish n chips very good. Mac and cheese was great.
This is based on my last experience at Cooper...not good. I've been for happy hour about a half dozen times and enjoyed Cooper's Pub. This time was a disaster. Server, unfriendly, unattentive -- well at least to me, she attended to my husband. First glass of wine was a short pour, in my eyes the bartender's fault. Wine did not even reach (even close) the little star on the wine glass and was $11. Sent it back, much to the server's chagrin. Later ordered a Pimm's cup, which was all ice--it was laughable. Maybe they didn't like that I sent the wine back for a full pour, who knows, however I can say one of the worst drinks I've ever had. You'll see the cup of ice picture attached--this was after I drank the Pimm's cup, or what there was of it. My husband ins English (so you can imagine a Pimm's cup not a new drink for me) and when the Pimm's arrived he said, "wrong color, no Pimm's. " Exactaly. Expensive for what we had, would have been fine if the server was actually interested in providing customer service. When seated we asked "how are you?" and her response was along the lines of "I'm here." Nice. Food was decent. This review is mostly about the service and the bartending.
Everything was excellent, as always. Cooper always delivers a consistently outstanding dining experience!
No offense to Cooper nor our server, but she seemed pretty new/inexperienced. She seemed a little bit like she didn’t want to serve us—I was with my 5 yo daughter, so I get it. I hope that our server either starts to get it or gets out of the biz. Namaste
We were looking for a last minute spot for Christmas dinner and Cooper Pub fit the bill. We had a great dinner and even better service from out waitress Lydia! Our whole family can’t wait to go back.
Had an enjoyable Sunday brunch with family. It wasn't that busy so the noise level was low.
