For my 55th birthday, my 21-year old daughter took me out for dinner and I took her to her first wine tasting, as she became a wine club member.

Our waitress was amazing. I did not know the flights were so much alcohol. Let’s just say, my husband had to drive us home. Ha!

When we arrived, there was no one at the hostess stand. We had to wait several minutes for someone to take our name. As soon as she did that, the phone rang and she assisted the person on the phone while we stood there waiting. I thought it was an unwritten rule to help the people in front of you before those on the phone.

The front door ruined the perfect score the first and last impression is important . The service at table was awesome which made up for the lack of your staff at the door

We only wish they would have allowed seating for 7, but covid :-(

Other than that, everything was fantastic.

I enjoyed another marvelous dining experience at Cooper's Hawk. My sister and I went for lunch. Our server, Heather, was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive without being intrusive. The food was out of this world! I had the Baramundi fish, which came with blistered green beans and halved cherry tomatoes in a superb sauce. My sis had the soup and salad combo - a delicious, generous portion of salad and a bowl of amazing lobster bisque. We shared a bottle of CH Barbera wine, which was perfect, as always. I highly recommend CH for any occasion.

We have been going to Coopers Hawk for a long time. We moved and no longer have one close so going there now is an effort. It was well worth it. The service was one of the best We’ve ever had. The food was amazing.

When they first opened a few years ago, the service was great. For my most recent visit, I made a reservation on open table because I had to wait 2 hours on my previous visit. We were seated nearly 20 minutes after the reservation time. Our server never told us her name, she was very chatty with the table across from us, but very task driven with us. No friendly banter as I’d seen with the other table. We had to ask for a place setting, and bread. We eventually had to ask her name. The food was great we tipped 15% because she did her job, although, not well. On the way out, the line to pick up our wine club wine was extremely long, and they’re usually so slow, so I decided not to wait and return the next day. The next day, the lady behind the counter was extremely rude she didn’t even acknowledge me as I walked up. I waited for her to speak as she wiped down the menu, but it never happened. I gave her my card and asked her a question about a wine on the counter. She didn’t even respond, I then said something else and she gave a one line response. I ordered my wine, she packed it up in complete silence and handed it to me without a thank you or anything. What happened to the enthusiastic “my pleasure” that everyone once said? I’m so disappointed with this location. They have to do better, we don’t have much in this mall, don’t let bad service make a good restaurant lose customers.

The food was subpar and not worth what i paid. Green beans under cooked, vegetables had to have been sitting under a lamp for hours. Potato’s were nasty. The chicken was good. Overpriced for how poor the quality was. Our server, Neil, was absolutely amazing though. Very knowledgeable on wine, upsold us a bottle, and was friendly and quick.

This was my family's and myself first time to Coopers Hawk and the experience was amazing. The ambiance was exactly what I like. Low lighting, music in the background, nice mix of large and intimate areas. The staff was extremely accommodating. The food was delicious and well prepared. I had an excellent Birthday dinner.

Hostess was very rude at “check in”. It took 10 minutes for anyone to acknowledge us after we sat at our table, and the waitress told us she is super busy. Food was good, except the Brussel sprouts appetizer that we love was very salty.

Never disappointed. Become a wine club member and enjoy some of the perks. My wife and I enjoyed our birthday discounts of $15 off each meal and had a bottle of wine that we had payed for through the club. So you could imagine we ate and drank like king and queen and our bill did not reflect it. Service excellent, food always excellent, made for a great night out.

I felt the food was excellent and the service was phenomenal. However, what was quite offensive was it clearly states that when guest get up from the table they wear their mask and they did not. We were dining, there were a few people a entering the dining area not wearing mask, during this time there was a manager on the floor as well as other servers that noted this... but no one stopped it. This made me feel very uncomfortable and not wanting to return for dine-in.
