I love Cooper! However, our server didn’t acknowledge our presence for 20 minutes. She then apologized, saying everyone wanted their tabs at the same time...which as a former server, I get. I gave her a restart! However, she was nonexistent after that too. (Even though she told us without asking we’d have her full attention). Food was dropped off by coworkers, one meal was ice cold and we had to go get her (walk a ways to find her) to send it back because the quick follow-up...”how is everything never happened?”
Cooper was a nice setting for some casual business discussions. The food was very good and the service was great, very accommodating to our discussions. We started off with the tomato basil soup (killer) and followed that up with Rueben’s. Lots of other options you’ll love - we both enjoyed these.
Not sure what happened to this place, but in the last year it seems like a lot has changed and it wasn't for the better. My wife and I don't frequent it often, but it is our place to go for special occasions. Not sure if it changed owners or the staff has had a lot of turnover but the waiter we had wasn't that friendly or caring. The food wasn't as good as what I remember it being either. We were really disappointed in it. We went there on Valentine's Day and it wasn't busy, which to me, seemed odd. Any place worth going to, should be busy on that day.
Went her on a Valentine's Day date and found that conversing about the beautiful architecture and the decorative Arts all over was an unexpected highlight to the evening.
Fantastic food. Good place to bring people with a variety of tastes
We walked here from a nearby hotel to grab dinner. I had the corned beef and cabbage, which was tough, but the cabbage underdone a little and a very, very watery sauce. My partner had curry, which was ok but not great. The staff was very professional, too bad they aren't given better food to serve.
Salmon was good with an interesting sauce. Fish and chips good with very big serving fish.
Online menu said HH was until 630, but server @610pm said they had none. Only other disappointment was that it was my date's birthday & I left a message reminding them about it & .......nothing :( but good food & pleasant staff.
This was not the best experience. The restaurant had very few tables occupied, and yet the hostess seated us very close to other diners. The server was slow, I had to ask for my bill, and even when she brought it, she chose not to clear our plates. Food was mediocre at best.
The food is very good, and the staff is friendly! Convenient location, with underground parking during those cold MN Winters. Good happy hour specials. Their new pub club benefits have been good so far. The restaurant is VERY loud, so maybe not the place for a quiet romantic meal...
