We had two servers during the course of this meal. Our first one was excellent!!! But the second one was only ok.
We went for magical dinning and they did not disappoint! Every course was FULL SIZED as if you were ordering from the regular menu and the food was delicious as always!

Tried the Magical Dining menu...not as good as a la carte.
Amazing service.

The background music is great! The food was really good. My food was hot when it arrived. It was well seasoned. It was first time here and I appreciated that I could sample the wines before committing to a purchase.

I think the biggest issue was when we walked in they told us “2 hour dining limit” literally I have never been given a dining limit at a restaurant before. Even in Covid it’s not a thing. We understand why I just don’t agree or think they deserve my business it felt rude & sorta frustrated me. We spent $150 and Cooper’s would be lucky to get my money again. The magical dining menu was disappointing

Great food and wine. Outside seating has no ambience and the restaurant is in the middle of a shopping center so the hostess switched us to inside which was great.

The short braised beef mushroom risotto is the best. I’ve craved eating here everyday since the first time five years ago! The menu has wine pairing with what you’re eating as well which is fantastic! Great service, food, ambience, customer service. You’ll drop a bit of coin but it’s TOTALLY worth it.

We went to Cooper’s Hawk for Magical Dining and had a great time. Our waiter was excellent, the wine was delicious and the food was pretty good. Our favorites were the tuna sashimi appetizer, the roasted vegetable flatbread, and the barramundi entree.

1st time I've had an entree that was just mediocre. Considering the crazy times, that's to be expected. The excellent service, as always, more than compensated. Do wish they had a larger craft beer selection, though, so that my hubby would enjoy it more.

We thoroughly enjoyed the food – amazing food from start to finish. We will return again soon. The braised short rib risotto was phenomenal and the key lime pie dessert was refreshing. The service provided by Chris was great. Only disappointment was being seated next to the door for patio dining. We were blasted with warm ambient air every time the servers or customers would walk by. Would recommend to anyone looking to enjoy an amazing night out.

We went there for Orlando Magical Dining. The food was very good and the portion sizes were more than plenty. However, we were not too impressed with their wines. They have their own winery and their wines are nothing special.

I’ve had a better experience here. I had a waitress that kept forgetting about us. We were also seating next to the exit door which waiters/waitress use very consistently and our menus at kept flying away.

We needed a place to meet up with our former UCF graduate to give him his dipolma. Everything was super clean and all servers were wearing masks. The food was very good. My sister remarked it was the best burger she had eaten in years. I had the BBQ chicken salad and it was also very good. It is a busy place so with 50 pc occupancy I recommend and Open Table reservation. We were seated right away.

Food was incredible. Service was excellent. Our server Christopher went above and beyond to make our experience perfect. My mother from out of town said that was the best meal and service she has had from a restaurant in years, and Christopher made her birthday special. Thank you for a great experience!
