So I’m a Ambassador member what I don’t understand why it takes so long to be seated
My reservations were at 6:00 we were present but stood there for 15 minutes and at that time we were the only ones. Once we were seated there was 5 empty tables which we did sit at one of them

This is a problem at the Barrington location it doesn’t make sense

It was very cold in the restaurant. The steak, Salmon, and chicken were really good. The grouper was very mushy. Server was good.

This review is specifically for the kitchen/food -

I ordered the filet and asked for medium rare. They gave me a well done, grey piece of meat. When the server came back and asked how everything was, all I had to do was show her the piece I had cut and she immediately knew it was not what I asked for.

What was annoying is that when she went back in to tell them to make a new one they seemed to not believe her because she was sent back a minute later to bring the steak because “they asked to see it for themselves”. I found that to be incredibly rude - to both the sever and myself as the customer as it paints us as liars?

Sadly, the remade one was still not medium rare but at that point I knew they clearly don’t seem to know how to cook a steak so I left it at that. I didn’t finish my food and definitely did not want to “box it up” when asked.

The experience really tarnished the entire evening and I won’t be going back.

The food was delicious, I had the Gnocchi Carbonara and it was worth it. They let you sample 2 wines complimentary as well. My server was Laura and she was delightful.

Very good food and excellent service. One suggestion: increase the heat. Yesterday was a particularly cold day but Coopers Hawk is always a bit cool at lunchtime. We would probably dine there more often if the temperature was more comfortable.

My wife and I enjoyed our dining experience. With times being the way they are, we thought Coopers Hawk did a fine job of making our evening enjoyable. Of course you will have people grumble about being met at the door and having to show proper “documentation “. But get over it, they are just following necessary mandates.

I picked that burger for my birthday and usually it is cooked perfectly but on this occasion I ordered it medium and the outside was completely charred and the middle was very rare. I didn’t say anything to the waiter because the service was excellent.

The food here is the best, the chicken Tortillo soup is outstanding and our server Maria was excellent. We are a bit concerned however,with the rising food and wine prices and probably will not be coming as often.
