My husband loved the wine choices here so I can’t wait to go back when I can drink again after baby:) The food was delicious. The bathrooms were messy with paper towels and soap so that could or use a bit more attention, but we had a good time and will try it again.

Great food and service but it is probably the loudest restaurant anywhere. Do not go there for an intimate conversation. You must shout to be heard.

I have been a wine member for over 2 years and my experience has always been great, this last visit the Host was very rude, treated us poorly I have never seen him there before. the Waitress was good but not great, the food quality was not great it was okay... my plate was dry didn't taste fresh, the appetizers took long and the waitress was extremely busy with other tables , we didn't receive the attention that I expected and always receive except this last visit. " the host" was very rude. (male) didn't get his name.

Usually we have a great experience at Coopers Hawk, but today they seemed to be struggling a little.
We checked in at 8:10pm for our 8:30 reservation, but it took a while to get seated.
Ordered a bottle of wine along with 2 waters and an app to get started, and the bread took close to 20 min to get to the table followed by the appetizer close to 30min after ordering it.
The manager was truly nice and came to personally apologize and offered to comp the appetizer, but our entrees took another 20min before we saw them.
The server looked pretty backed up, so much that we got the impression she'd given up on us. She was taking care of a larger party and that seemed to be her priority. At the end of the day they get automatically grat added to their check.
We still tried to enjoy our date and tipped the server close to a 25% but definitely not the best experience.

We had a very pleasant time! Our son was in town and we had a great dinner together. From the time we arrived we had great service. Our son had a bit of ahold up but they were able to save our reservation until he arrived and then very helpful and accommodating, food was delicious as was the wine and beer. We will recommend to friends.

Nice variety of food although menu was dirty and had sauce blobs in it; waitress was nice but seemed rushed eventhough we were there on time for our 9pm reservation and people were being seated after us... she even forgot to ask us for our drink orders initially... and we were all ready for a coke or glass of wine... overall satisfied though!

The best part was the wine tasting before dinner. Make sure you reserve time for that.The wines were surprisingly good and our pourer was very nice. Our service during dinner was good too. The menu is varied and everything is freshly prepared. The food wasn’t spectacular but we enjoyed our meal and were not rushed. Don’t forget to grab a truffle on your way out.

Yikes! As they say in Texas, this restaurant was “all hat and no cattle”. Despite trying really hard to be a winery-restaurant, their wine was terrible and the food was average at best. And we waited far too long for service and courses.

I was very unhappy with the salmon I ordered. It was very thin and dried out. The server took it away from me without asking if I wanted anything else to eat or a fresh plate. No manager came over to ask me my thoughts. It was taken off the check, but overall it was not handled properly. The service at the I-drive location is not as good as the Waterford Lakes location, which is a shame for those who live in the Dr. Phillips area.

Unfortunately the hostess was not accommodating when I asked to sit at a round table with 4 people. The restaurant was empty at 4pm and during the time we were there at no time did they have a need for the table we requested. She told us they were reserved and only at my insistence did she accommodate us.

Service was slow and our meals did not come out together.

We spent $200 for our meal and I would not select your restaurant again. Cold shoulder from staff and food got cold waiting.

Our family of 4 started the evening with a wine tasting. Two tasting menus were available with 8 selections each and were reasonably priced. There wasn't a wine that disliked by the entire group. The dinner menu offers very good variety. The meals were excellent. We tried each others dishes and all were liked by the group. The service was good. The waiter was knowledgeable about the entrees and wines and explained their preparations well. There was a time where he seemed to be missing, but he returned with a birthday desert for my wife. In all it was an excellent experience and would return again when in the area.

We love the food and wine, but our waitress, Marisa. She left one member of our party waiting quite awhile for his food twice. Very awkward when five of us had been served and the sixth is waiting almost 5 minutes for his food. This also happened a second time when dessert was served.

We visited the restaurant for our anniversary. We sat on the patio where it was quiet but inside it's quite loud. The seating is very open so there isn't a lot of options for a romantic setting inside. However, the food was delicious and we were quite pleased with the value. We will definitely be back.

I would recommend Cooper's Hawk I-Drive. But not on a Saturday night when there is a convention next door. I was not impressed with the fact that we had to wait 10 minutes past our reservation time, the excessive noise level, the so-so service and longer than usual wait time for our meal. I did not see management finesse in handling the large crowd, I saw apparent tweaking of OpenTable to increase the reservation load with proportional declines in service and food quality. When a server has to wait two (2) 4-toppers and a 10 person table, the two 4 toppers suffer. I love the wine here, and the steak was nicely cooked. However, the chef over-relied upon the salt shaker on the Filet medallions toppings. The Crab beignets and Mexican drunken shrimp were very good appetizers. And the S'mores dessert was excellent. The management here needs to learn that quality is better than quantity (crowd size), especially on weekends.

The dining room was very loud. Hard to have a conversation. The food and drinks were good. And the waitress was very nice, responsive and helpful. It's a good venue for an exciting night out, but not so much for a quiet dinner. Overall, as my first time there, it was good.
