Cooper's Hawk Winery & Restaurant - South Barrington
My family of five celebrated Easter Sunday at the South Barrington Cooper's Hawk location. The tasting bar was surprisingly empty... Which made it perfect for us to start our tasting prior to our 2:45pm reservation. While we did not finish our tasting, we were able to come back and taste the remaining wines after dinner. Love the flexibility!
We started off with the wedge and caesar salads. The salads are both very large portions which made it nice for us to share amongst the family. For our entrees we order two of the Braised Wine Short Ribs (my personal favorite), the Asian Pork, the Shrimp & Scallop Risotto and my grandson had the cheese flat bread. Each item was perfectly prepared, full of amazing flavor and absolutely delicious! Our bottles of wines we ordered were the Paddy Moer and the Passion Fruit.
Desserts were also fantastic: we split the key lime pie and Carmel banana bread.
Thank you to our server Ana R. For the wonderful service and for making us feel so welcomed.
This restaurant turned out perfect for our Easter celebration. Mike, our server, was very kind and gracious! Thank you for a beautiful day!
Coopers Hawk in South Barrington consistently provides great food & service. I love taking guest there or going with family because I know everyone will always leave happy! The kids meals are fantastic too and they always eat so they get that yummy chocolate covered strawberry as part of their dessert.
We got seated in a crappy area in a loud room which looks like it can be a private room but they just shoved as much tables and chairs as they can so it was hard to hear my fiancé and such but other than that we had a great time!
New server was great.
We go to Coopers Hawk quite a bit, and have never been disappointed. It’s a truly awesome place
Our waiter Ross was amazing!!! He is so friendly and knowledgeable. Always great service!!!! The food was fantastic.
We were seated right away. Our server was great. Knowledgeable and very attentive. My girlfriend and I both ordered seafood dishes and thought they were both just OK. She had the seafood risotto and I have the pistachio crusted Grouper. Would probably not order either dish again. Overall, a good dining experience, but would like to see Cooper's Hawk change up the menu more often.
Food and service is consistently good. Wine selection is always a delight.
Great time celebrating a birthday. The food was very good and the wait staff attentive and friendly.
Great place to go for good food and wine.
Horrible. I made reservations since I heard you can wait a while for a table. After being seated promptly, I sat for 25 mins before a waitress even acknowledged me. Food took 35 mins to come out and then I waited another 25mins for check after being done. Dinner for 1 took 2 hours. Interestingly enough I was scoping this place out for a larger business dinner and clearly they cannot handle. Very disappointed.
good food good service. was a very enjoyable night. wine was good also
Been to this restaurant on several occasions and always had a great experience. However, unfortunately was disappointed with the last dining experience and don't think the wife & I will be back for a while.
This is always a favorite place of ours. The food, the wine, the service all top notch!!
They need to redesign the seating area such that there is a reduction in the noise level. Other than that, it was great!
Great food. Great service.
We always have a good experience at Cooper’s hawk South Barrington. I wish I would have remembered our servers name because he was excellent. He was funny, kind and didn’t rush us!
Great food and time
Great food great service
Food was amazing. Our server was very efficient. Her name was Emily. Great 20th anniversary celebration.
Surprisingly, the service was very slow. They were extremely busy and the kitchen must have been slammed.
Have never had a bad experience! Wait staff is very knowledgeable and friendly.
We started with the Chicken Potstickers and they were excellent. For you he main course I dined on the barramundi which I thoroughly enjoyed and my spouse had the surf & turf of tenderloin medallions and pistachio crusted grouper which was also delicious. Our wine for the evening was Paddy Moer Barbera wine of the month which had a rich ruby color and tasted like boysenberries and sour cherries. Very happy with our selection.
A favorite, and I am a wine club member. Only recommendation is: Make a reservation.
The kitchen was very slow today which is unusual. They were very crowded which probably explains why.
Great place for girls' get together lunch! Service was fabulous and the food selection plentiful. The citrus salmon and kale salad was delicious as was the cream of mushroom soup and vegetarian enchiladas. Highly recommend visiting! Reservations are suggested as they are very busy.
My favorite part was that no matter how long we took during our 8:30 pm reservation, we never felt pressured to hurry up and leave. We literally left our table at 11:30 pm, and we’re surprised that we were the only ones left. We had an AWESOME time, and Cooler’s Hawk let us have the time of our lives. Thank you!!
Food and Service were great. The noise level in the room ruined our meal.
My husband said it was the best burger he ever had. Thank you!
Requested a booth. Told none were available for (at least 20 minutes) so we took a table close to an empty booth which sat empty for 20 minutes. I had a reservation with a request for a booth and am a very good customer. Bad start.
Server was very nice but seemed busy. Couldn’t remember to refill my drink. Also this was the first time I felt rushed at Coopers Hawk. You usually space bringing main course to give time to finish soup or salad ... not this time as I was only 1/2 finished with my soup before main entree salads arrived. Overall gives me pause on coming back AND leaving wine club membership ... I will (at least be calling to drop from two bottles per month to just one).
I have been to Cooper’s Hawk many times, and each experience has been fantastic. This time was a birthday lunch for my best friend. We both had the luncheon special, lobster bisque and Caesar salad, plus Cooper’s Hawk’s wonderful martinis! Then we received a complimentary tray of small desserts to share. A great time was had by the two of us!
Waitress very pleasant and attentive
We enjoyed our dining experience. Service was outstanding. Our server made perfect suggestions and listened to our likes and dislikes and was spot on with recommending certain items on the menu. The wine was perfect as well.
The menu is great. We have noticed that the menu has been the same for yearssss. Just an observation.
Will definitely dine there again and again.
We were seated immediately. Waitress was exemplary - couldn't say enough about the care she gave us. The food is always something to look forward to and this day we were not disappointed. I can't say enough about how great our experence was. I love Cooper's Hawk food. The chef never lets me down.
Good wine. Great variety of wine. Monthly menu additions. Dependably good food paired with wine. Easy. Learn wines. I like the appetizers, especially the bisque. Reservations advised.
Our server was not up to the usual standard.
And parking can be problematic. We go there regularly. Very comfortable.
Nate our server is always great. Enjoyed it. Thank you...
Great time. Good food. Great service
Great food, great service, great atmosphere and great wine!
