Service was very slow... Our waiter may have had too many tables to wait on, but we had to flag him down many times and ask him for particulars.

Birthday lunch for a friend. Service was poor. Sabino was our waiter and he was inattentive and rude. Several times we asked for him to clear plates and his response was “not now”....unbelievable response especially when he was empty handed and just walking to the kitchen. Manager came over to make excuses for him like he didn’t know it was a birthday lunch etc etc...clearly he did know and was reminded several times. He never bright dessert plates or forks for the cake and just vanished until the bill was paid then he came back. He had an attitude when told about food allergies and was clearly in a rush for the entire lunch. Would never want him back and very surprised Coopers has a waiter like that.
The chopped salad wasn’t the best...hardly had any avacado in it or any other vegetables stated on the menu and the lettuce looked tired..all for $15.99??? Really? That’s a lunch salad too...overpriced and not a good experience at all.

Worst experience at Coopers Hawk this past weekend. I ordered their rib eye special for $33.0, Got a overcooked steak that was 1/4 inch thick, seriously for that kind of money.... Service was very slow. We have had a way better experience at the saint Charles location. Not sure if the steak would have been better their, but we never had a bad experience there..

Cooper's Hawk never disappoints! They have a good wine selection and we have never had a bad meal whether we go to celebrate a special event or just to meet up with friends. This visit was to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and we wouldn't think of dining anywhere else for this occasion! Cheers!

A wonderful food and wine experience. We enjoyed the October wine of the month, LVE by John Legend which is a blend of a variety of wines that work extremely well together. Excellent dry wine with fruity flavors that goes down smoothly. We paired this with Spaghetti & meatballs and it was a good match.
Shawna was excellent as our server and was extremely knowledgeable about the wine as well as the food. We both had a great evening.

Had the bisque soup—very good. House salad very good. Crab cakes not so good. Had too much filler in them. Hardly tasted the crab. Potatoes were average. Key lime pie was well done. very tasty. Waiter was first class and we had a quiet corner for conversation. Would go again but not have the crab cakes.

Not our best visit at this restaurant. There were 4 of us at dinner. We ordered appetizers before we ordered dinner. Shortly after we ordered appetizers, we placed our order for dinner. One of the people in our party ordered a salad with their dinner. His salad came before our appetizers arrived. Shortly after that, one of our appetizers arrived along with dinner. The manager came over an apologized and removed the cost of the appetizers from our bill. So with all that going on, its hard to enjoy a nice dinner.

Everything was good. Filets was over cooked though. Asked for one med and the other medium rare. One was medium well and other was well done. But we’ve been dining here for years and this was our first mishap so I’d say that’s not that bad. Things happen.

Monthly special steak was less than par. Not usual for coopers maybe just 1 bad piece/cut of meat. Of course they took great care of us! My Dana’s chicken was amazing!

Good wine and food. Very reliable. Our server,Nate, was efficient, personable, and knowledgeable—-most of the servers have experience and know how to make dining out pleasant. You get to taste the wine before you actually order it. There is such a variety of wine that you need to find out if you like it.
Almost a neighborhood vibe.
The night we ate there, we looked around and NO ONE was on a screen! Great restaurant.

Our table was too close to the other tables and it was a tight fit for staff to get around us. We felt too much on top of each other. The other negative was that it was way too noisy, and difficult to hear our table conversation. Was not warned that the guacamole was extremely spicy and it was quite a while before I could recover. I cannot handle too spicy. All that aside, the rest of the food was good, though my steak was overdone for a medium--pretty much well done. It still tasted very good. LOVED those roasted veggies and mashed potatoes. Thank you so much to the staff for finding out our needed info on MSG in their food - we had to change some of our selections, but there were good alternatives! The staff was extremely capable and friendly - attentive and accommodating to our needs and special requests. I would go again, but need to be careful who I bring, and make sure that guac never hits my poor tongue again.

We loved everything that we had and the birthday surprise for my mother in law was fantastic. My only complaints were that it was freezing in the restaurant, my husband got hit by a waitress moving a chair, and they were out of the calamari.

A few things i would like to point out:

1. Although I had a firm reservation through opentable we had to wait for over 30 minutes?!?

2. Server was Not attentive!
-Forgot to bring straw
-We asked to have the calamari as an appetizer but he brought all food as a main course
-Seemed stressed
-Did not refill drinks
-Made US wait for a long time for dessert although I pointed out that we are crunched for time

=> expected a much higher level of service at a restaurant of that caliber $$$
