This particular visit was in the tent outside on a very windy day. Our fine dining experience was not up to par. The weather was blowing winds pretty hard. Our steak was over cooked and not medium rare as we asked. Also an oppossum casually strolled by our table. And we booked a week in advance. A little disappointed 😢 Love eating inside but due to restrictions there was no other option but outside in the tent.
This has been a crazy year bcuz if Covid. If the virus is still an issue next year I would encourage this restaurant to invest in a quality tent on the property. It would improve the outdoor dining experience. On our last visit we left without eating outside in the cold and wind. There are few places that have successfully transitioned to the new normal. controlled temperature for dining should be considered to charge the current prices. I think upscale outside dining would be very popular if done well.
Will only eat outside during the pandemic or do pick up and take home. Will. It sit inside or in an enclosed tent. Do not feel it us safe.
Wanted to enjoy the last day I’m of 70 degree weather before reality struck. Always fun and the food was great!
Always love our time at any Cooper’s Hawk! Enjoyed one of the last beautiful nights of warm weather in Illinois outside!!!
Food was good; could have been a little warmer.
Service was excellent.
As always, fabulous food and great service! We definitely will be back again.
We are outside in the dining rent and it could not have been staged better. The warm night, distanced tables,heaters between tables and ambient lighting. Add the great food and it made for a perfect night..
Every time we go to Coopers Hawk we have a very enjoyable experience
Beautiful patio to enjoy delicious food, wine and outstanding service.
Wish they had a better tent for outdoor dining because it was a little chilly. Everything else was PERFECT!
Outside sitting only. It was very windy but that’s out of their control. They do have heatlaps which we’re working.
Excellent overall experience as always.
We will be back soon!
Attentive staff, great surroundings and good food.
Food and service always good. Unfortunately, with corona, we had to sit outside. It was cold and windy. Not their fault.
We had a lovely dinner in the tent. It was a little chilly but we bundled up and enjoyed the beautiful fall colors. The food and wine were superb and our server was attentive!
Was happy that they put us at a table that was closed to the kitchen door as with the social distancing that table should be left open
Enjoyed a spur of the moment dinner out with my husband. Had the opportunity to take advantage of my birthday certificate as welll as two gift cards also for my birthday. Perfect way & place to enjoy a nice dinner to celebrate the end of my birthday month.
Best chicken tortilla soup ever. also best service.
Great food and service. Only issue was restaurant was cold. I didn’t say anything so my fault.
Birthday celebration for my daughter and family friend.
We come all the time as this is our favorite restaurant. When they found out it was our Anniversary they immediately gave us a glass of champagne to celebrate. Food and atmosphere are always amazing. One of the many reasons we keep coming back.
We were on a girl's weekend to celebrate my daughter's birthday. We chose Coopershawk because we could get a "little fancy". Andrea was amazing.
The food was Delicious! Presentation was lovely. The waitress was professional and knowledgeable.
The restaurant was clean and attractive. They even presented my guest with a Birthday Truffle dessert. Compliments of Coopers Hawk.
Great as always! Service, food and hospitality. Impressive COVID compliant throughout the evening without disrupting the dining experience. Thank you for helping us celebrate my daughter's 21st birthday! GL
We were socially distant, the host, servers all were in masks. Our food was outstanding, will do it again!
Great evening on the patio with friends. Food and service impeccable!
It was just a bit loud because we were seated at a table right in front of the kitchen. Considering there were so many open tables we were not pleased. They did move us when we asked. The wait staff, the food, and the cocktails were excellent.
We had several appetizers and Gnocchi and split everything. We had a very nice time.
Always good food, outstanding waiter.
Our waitress Laura was super friendly, amazing food and service. She recommended the chefs Special and it was delicious.
As two bottle wine club members, we visit the Barrington location a few times a month. We enjoy the tastings and dinners of great value and we live the Life Balance menu. We keep coming back for more. Thank you and the staff for what you've done during Covid.
Always good food! Celebrated my birthday and it was great. We had scallops, chicken gardiniera, and churrasco grilled steak which was delicious. The key lime pie is to die for and got birthday truffles as a surprise. I do not recall our server's name but she was great and made the experience even more wonderful.
Delicious lunch at Cooper's Hawk again. .
Service was excellent and so was the server. Good attention to our table and very helpful. Definitely love this restaurant!
Service & food were very good. We were able to enjoy time together to celebrate a family birthday.
Moved us inside because a table became available. Decided to go outside and look at outdoor seating and was very happy to be moved inside because it was too cold and windy to eat dinner out there. Small patio with heaters but everyone had their jackets on and it was cold. No flaps to enclose the patio.
We had the best server and meal!!!
I had a reservation and waited5 minutes. My waitress was very nice, informative and accommodating.
The Food was fantastic as always. The menu continues to expand to what it used to be. We felt comfortable as the staff put our fears at ease with the arrangement of seating inside. No one table is closer than 6' at a minimum.
Still a can't miss for dinner or lunch!
