Had better experiences this was a Thursday night and we had to wait 30 minutes for our table beyond our reservation. Once we sat down it took another 10 to 15 minutes before we even got water

Food was not good. I ordered a pasta dish with shrimp and I got the wrong dish it had chicken in it. The waiter insisted I got the correct dish and they just forgot the shrimp even though it did not say on the menu there was chicken in the dish I ordered. He brought some shrimp on the side. I didn’t care for the dish that I didn’t order at all. My son had s prime rib sandwich he didn’t like. We all had a ton of food on our plates and he asked if we wanted it to go and we all said no. You would think he would have asked us if we didn’t like it. Wine is great but food needs a huge improvement and service needs to be improved. We spent $250 for four definitely not worth it.

Our server was very helpful and upbeat. Never made us feel rushed but always taken care of. The food is fantastic as usual and the wine was not only reasonably priced but also delicious made the night. Would come for the food but stay a very long time to enjoy the wine.

We brought friends for wine tasting at Cooper's Hawk and decided to have dinner, despite being disappointed the last time we ate here. We all ordered the special, parmesan encrusted shrimp scampi. We were totally disappointed again. the shrimp were not parmesan crusted but had a dab of green sauce on them which tasted like pesto. Shrimp scampi is my favorite dish and this was a very poor version of it. So from now on we will wine taste here but eat elsewhere.

As usual, our waiter, Mark did a phenomenal job. The food was delicious and we can't say enough about how much we enjoy the Calamari as an appetizer. We have eaten at four different locations and have always had a great experience. I highly recommend Cooper's Hawk for any occasion. We have celebrated birthdays, anniversaries and just life in general while eating dinner or enjoying a wine tasting!

Cooper's Hawk is one of my favorite restaurants. Our appetizer and meals were delicious. Our server was attentive and we never had to ask for a drink refill. Dessert was delightful! We had plenty of time to chat and enjoy the evening. I never felt rushed or ignored. Another great time at Cooper's Hawk!

Everything was near perfect except for a couple of hiccups, one being we had to wait 30 minutes past our reservation time due to the restaurant being so packed. I was shocked how busy it was due to it being on a Wednesday. We had a table next to us that was extremely loud nothing so bad though that it really ruined the experience of the dining. The food was absolutely fantastic and the price of everything for how much we ate and drank was not bad at all.

The food is good; the drinks are great and the value is good as well. My big issue is the layout of the dining area causes it to be extremely noisy and it is difficult to talk. Further, my wife complains of a cool down draft which requires her to wear a shawl. Clearly these two issues do not make it a pleasant dining experience.

Not sure what happened today, but they were out of tuna so I opted in for the salmon. It was over cooked and had a very bad fishy taste that it wasn’t even edible. Being on a business lunch I didn’t want to make a big deal about it. Seems like the staff was in training mode so hopefully a fluke.

Great food and overall experience. Our waitress was very helpful. Really, my only complaint is that my son was encouraged to swap out his regular side for fries that he didn’t really want. I know the waitress was trying to be helpful, but he was confused by her question and the choices the other kids at the table got. I loved my enchiladas

Although we had to take an earlier reservation, the evening turned out great. It was a little quieter before 5 and the place wasn't filled up yet. Our server was outstanding and the manager even stopped by our table to make sure all was well.

Our server was top-notch! She did not rush us but was very attentive. Or food was very good. I had the crab cakes and my wife had the short ribs. She said her food was outstanding and mine was very good, but could have used more crab in the cakes. The wine was good. We tried the barrel reserve, which was outstanding in the past, but was just 'good' that night. The cabernet and cab-zin were really good! At the end our waitress remembered the social occasion with a free dessert which was always appreciated. I would recommend Coopers Hawk.

The salmon was delicious, as was the Mediterranean Shrimp Salad. However, the best part of the dining experience was the service of Lydianne, our waitress. She was most pleasant throughout the meal, even though she had to keep on going back and forth to the kitchen to find out what I could eat because I have a garlic allergy. Not once did she show any sign of being put upon, but was always most gracious. I did tell one of the managers on the way out just how great she was, but I could not remember her name at that time.
