Food was amazing as always. Our server was kind but never noticed when we needed drink refills and needed to be reminded more than once each time they were requested. That's not the norm here.

I had a reservation for a table of seven, and when my friends arrived slightly later than we anticipated, they were treated extremely poorly and told they wouldn't be seated because I had not responded to a text from Cooper's Hawk (which I had forwarded to them knowing I would arrive later than them). This was at 2:15 in the afternoon when there were PLENTY of empty tables! I was upset to say the least. Otherwise, the service during the time there was fine. But if that is how they great guests, I would not recommend them to anyone.

If its a special event, this Cooper's Hawk is always at the top of our list. We were there to celebrate my wife's birthday so everything had to be perfect. From the cozy ambiance, to the staff that was polite and well informed about menu options and specials. Overall, we had a wonderful meal topped off with their jaw dropping chocolates and truffles. Thank you Cooper's Hawk for making this a memorable experience.

Our waiter was not nice! We wanted to take out time ordering and he kept coming back to the table asking us if we were ready yet? He said he had a big group coming and he would not have time to stop at our table often! We felt very rushed,and when we did leave that big group he talked about had not shown up yet! Not a very good experience at all. Maybe select a different venue for our next outing!

It was very crowded since it was Mother’s Day. After we were served it took the waiter close to 30 minutes to get back to us. The table next to us which sat 6 was not cleared for over a half hour after the party of 5 left. There were lots of people waiting to sit. They need to clean and turn the tables quicker. For a holiday you need to bring in more staff.

I've been to Cooper's Hawk in this location many times with friends or for a date night. I chose this for my Mother's Day dinner, as I'm not a big fan of buffets and we hadn't been in quite awhile. I made a reservation, but we had to wait about 20 min for our table to be ready. Then, we were seated directly outside of the door to the kitchen, on a corner with two aisles on either side of us. I think maybe they were just overwhelmed with Mother's Day, but service was somewhat slow and not the most attentive. I would have had another glass of wine (the signature of this restaurant!), but he came back so infrequently and I was not feeling relaxed at our table. The food was good, but presentation lacking - my plate was swimming in juices from the steak medallions. Not enough to make me jump at planning to visit Cooper's Hawk again any time soon.
