Been here several times and it is one of my favorite restaurants. This time however after making reservations 5 days in advance for a birthday we were seated at a table in the bar area tight next to the door. There was a large group drinking there and we so loud we can barely hear each other and kept going in and out of the door to smoke wheeler it was about 50 outside. To make it worse they were automatic doors and closed after about 15 seconds while it was very cold outside Needless to say the person they took was his first time there in his birthday and was not impressed

I ordered the scallop & shrimp risotto. Only one butterfly shrimp cut in half. Not worth the price.

Just so tired of being seated in the outer room when advanced reservations are made. Cold draft from the window, Car lights shining on our table. We couldn't have gotten a worse table shoved in the back in the corner.

The server did not communicate with us about the extraordinarily long time for our entrees to arrive. Every table around us ordered, enjoyed their meals, and left before we finally got our entrees. We decided to leave after speaking with a manager about this.

Love the food and wine selection here. Wish it offered romantic areas but the entire place is too loud for romance. Wasn’t happy we couldn’t sit in the glass window area to people watch for my bday lunch. Only opened at night. Doesn’t make sense to only use windows at night when there is nothing to see but can’t use in day time for light, sun, and scenery. Rest of place is really dark in day time. Hard to see the menu.

Went New Years Day for lunch. Great time because hardly anybody was there. Tasted a few wines, took one home and drank a nice glass of riesling . Started with pretzel bread that nice. Appetizer was bacon wrapped shrimp and it was cooked great and tasted even better. Wife's entree was short rib sandwich on sour dough bread with tomato soup. Oh it was yummy. I had the shrimp and scallop risotto which was super good and very tasty. Of course we weren't able to finish our meals because they are so big. Took home the leftovers and they tasted great to.

We have eaten at Coopers Hawk 4 X in the last month. Food is fantastic and I love the Sauvignon Blanc that they produce. I joined the Wine Club and it has wonderful events to join in. The calamari and Brussel Sprout appetizers are to die for. We also tried the egg rolls and they were spectacular. Recommend for everyone...

Service was great. The Champagne was very good for the price. Two of the dinners were good, fish and chips & grouper. Mushroom encrusted chicken with risotto was awful. The sauce was inedible. Have been here before. Kitchen was off their game. It was New Years Eve. Won’t hurry back.

Made reservations for New Years and requested a booth or quiet table. Went to check in was told had to sit and wait and come back to check to see if table was ready. No Pagers, No phone alert...we had to keep checking if our reserved table was ready.
We were finally seated, by the back door, restaurant staff going in and out continually. Other guest using back side door continually.
Noise, door slamming, people constantly walking into our table.
Waiter only came back twice, sat and waited for drinks and then food. This was more like eating at a Fast Food Establishment other than a wine and dine “Restaurant”.
Will not return.

Celebrating New Year’s Eve with family was a FANTASTIC experience at Cooper’s Hawk. The food was delicious and the service, exceptional. For as busy of a night as it was, they made it seem as though nothing else was going on. LOVED everything about our experience!

We had an excellent lunch with some old friends and we're impressed with the new staff we had not met before. The seating was good and the server pair we had were very good at what they do. The food was good as always and the overall experience was excellent. With the five of us the overall timing took almost two hours, which is the primary reason I don't do here for lunch during the business day.

This is our go to place for all special occasions and casual dining for great food and I'm also a member of their monthly wine club. For the first time ever I was disappointed with my meal. I got the Surf and Turf combination of Pork Chop and Grouper. The serving size was very small. The piece of grouper was small and paper thin. The pistachio crust was on the grouper was thicker than the grouper. I can't say I could even taste the grouper. The pork chop tasted phenomenal but was also very small. If this is normal for the Surf and Turf combination I won't get it again. I love this restaurant and will continue to patronize it, but won't buy this combination.

Great restaurant to celebrate a special occasion! It was my moms birthday and the server gave us extra time to order and didn’t rush us. Also the server gave my mom some chocolate covered strawberries after dinner. The food was great and the wine!
