Father’s Day. I ordered the Chef’s Recommendation, which was beef medallions (med rare) with mushroom/truffle ravioli... ravioli was good, but medallions came out well-done, and very dry... I told waiter immediately, but instead of getting it reordered, he proceeded to take orders from a table of 10, and by the time he got back to us, it was too late, as everyone else at my table had finished eating... disappointing dinner...

Outstanding food and service! Totally enjoyed our evening out. The Carbonara Gnocchi is scrumptious! We split a wedge salad and it was delicious and still a huge portion. Wine selection is superb.

We sat in the bar so it was a bit louder, but have been in the restaurant side multiple times and it's very quiet. Food is great - the Calamari is best I've ever had. Everything I've had there is great - we even bought the cookbook

This was our second time here. The first time was much better. Service this time wasn't great. Ran out of water and never got a refill. Calamari appetizer was delicious! Definitely recommend it.
Had the blackened ahi tuna. The blackened part was over seasoned and too salty. It didn't mix well with the Asian slaw and rice. Husband's breaded chicken and mashed potatoes was just ok. Loved this place the first time we went so probably will give it another shot.

Menu is huge, there is something for everyone. We had the Life Balance ahi tuna tacos and the Napa chicken salad. Both were very good. Service was attentive until we were finished. It took a while to be asked if we wanted dessert, coffee, or the check. We were not offered iced tea refills either. But it was very pleasant and we will go back.

The bacon wrapped shrimp appetizer with gauc and tequila butter was fantastic I could have made a meal out of it. The scallop & shrimp risotto was perfect. Note that when you order a Caesar or house salad they are large enough to share.

We spent our anniversary dinner here and our server, Nikki, was fantastic. They gave each of us a complimentary glass of wine and a dessert. We are wine club members and used one of our credits for a carafe of the CH red wine blend. However, after having a pre-dinner tasting of a couple of wines and the complimentary glass, we never touched the carafe. CH did not charge us for the carafe and even allowed us to apply our wine credits to the cost of the meal. The Manager even stopped by to check on us and wish us happy anniversary. Great service and a great meal!

The ambience of Cooper’s Hawk in Springfield, IL IS WONDERFUL! However the noise level needs to be improved. We had a group of 12 people and it was so loud, we had to yell at each other even when we were sitting right next to the person. The food was delicious and prepared perfectly. We were celebrating my husband’s 73rd birthday and we were told that he would get a little complimentary dessert but he was not even offered one.

We love CH and edt there regularly. Niki was our server she was nice but dumped us after she took our order, she just disappeared. Finally she came by and asked how our food was but we had already finished and another server had removed our plates. We asked the other server for our check when she picked up our plates, apparently she didn’t tell Niki, or Niki didn’t care, idk. We asked for our check and it took another 20 min to get it. It was a real buz kill to our Sunday lunch.

Went for Mother’s Day. Food & service were great. Waitress fell very hard and another waitress scolded her for speaking too loudly about it. That was awkward. Lots of slippery floors even to restroom area. Lots of broken dishes. It was a busy night but worry about staff skipping & getting hurt.

Had a wonderful Mother’s Day lunch! The food was delicious and arrived in a timely manner. Our server Shay took care of everything with a smile and a great sense of humor...not easy with a table of 5 women! The glass of wine that we received once we entered the restaurant was very much appreciated by our group. This was our second Mother’s Day visit and I’m sure there will be a third!

Grape tomatoes in salad were green - ugh.

Medallion trios (2 orders) both had a bit of gristle.

Mashed potatoes were on the bland side.

Asparagus was big and thick. This is the season for young, thin, and tender asparagus, which you can actually buy locally. Something is wrong here.

And, yes, it’s way too noisy. Not ridiculously so, but it needs attention.

We are Springfield residents and have not been to Cooper's Hawk until just recently. After the hype had passed, we thought we'd give it a try. We are not regular "wine people", but do indulge the beverage, socially. Overall, we had a good experience. If you care for more details, read on. The atmosphere was not what I was expecting, but it was very enjoyable. The food did not disappoint. The BEST thing about our experience was the service. Our server was friendly, casual yet professional, and extremely knowledgeable about the food/drink menu(s). Ultimately, the service is what made the biggest impact.

That said, we will not be visiting Cooper's Hawk anytime soon, not because of the poor experience, but because of the price. We knew going in, our bill would be one of the larger ones we've seen in a while, and expected what we saw. However, our curiosity outweighed the thought of "breaking the bank". Bottom line, if you are a wine person and want to enjoy a night out and don't mind paying for it, Cooper's Hawk is for you.

Lunch with a friend. I had the ahi tuna tacos, she had the grilled cheese with short rib sandwich, fries and cup of tomato soup. Huge sandwich, she took half home. My tacos were good, could have used a little more tuna, and a better quality corn tortilla. Great slaw, fresh and crunchy. Good service, nice silverware, black napkins so you don’t get lint all over your black slacks!
