Prior to COVID, we did wine tastings each month, but always dreaded having to wait in an unorganized group to grab an open spot. Having a reservation made the experience much more pleasant. We would encourage you to consider some type of walk-in check in system once the wine tasting reservation system is sunsetted. It would make the experience more enjoyable for your patrons.
Father’s Day dinner
I just love this place, great food and of course great Wine!!
The food was excellent! The chicken Madeira was amazing the steak entrees were done to perfection.
Food was delicious. We go to Cooper’s Hawk when we want something above the ordinary.
We had a great dining experience yesterday at 515 pm, June 17. The roasted brussel sprouts are to die for and the brushetta was delicious. I had the Chicken Madera, my spouse had the pasta special and our friends had Soy Atlantic Salmon and the Chimicheri steak. Our friends also enjoyed the salted carmel creme brulee. The wanted to lick the bowl. My spouse enjoyed some delicious red wine and our non- wine drinking friends enjoyed the wine Red Romance. All of our dishes were excellent. Large portions, ingredients were fresh and made by great chefs. Our waiter was tall, polite and experienced server. He served us we'll. ( I don't remember his name but he attends UCF studying film). Cooper's Hawk is my favorite places to dine. I love everything about this restaurant!!!
Great time, Nick, the server was awesome.
Meghan and Kelly did a great job w/ our wine tasting, as usual. I forgot the waitress' name, but she did a great job too. Great experience, as usual. See you next month!
As always the evening was enjoyable and my daughter and I had a great time. Good wine, good food and very enjoyable. Our server, wish i could remember his name, did a great job. Our only issue, is the place gets too loud. And I must say that is always true.
I will return and I will recommend to others. Keep up the good work.
I always have a pleasant dining experience at Coopers Hawk! My favorite restaurant!!
Everything was amazing from hostess to waiter service was awesome
Really great experience I truly recommend visiting this restaurant if you haven't will definitely visit again.
As always, the service was impeccable and the servers knowledge of wines outstanding. Our food was delicious and seated right in time. Definitely would go to again!
Great food, the trio of medallions were delicious cooked perfect and my husband's fish and chips were a huge portion with delicious fries.
Our server Adriana was so great efficient and there when we needed her.
It was ok, not exactly up to our normal standard but we enjoyed our anniversary, even though our waiter didn’t seem impressed with 35 years lol
This place is awesome. That being said- I am sorry they're getting rid of reservations. We drive from Brevard to wine and dine here so it's pretty stressful hoping there's a spot available.
Food and service was excellent!
Food was great! Server was awful.
Coopers Hawk never disappoints! Love the short rib risotto and the Southwest egg rolls are to die for! Service is top notch! Make reservations early though, seems to book up fast!
I think Jeremy was in training and he spent a lot of time with us discussing the menu. The food was absolutely delicious. And I had samples of wine before ordering a glass. Great place for a very delicious meal!
We enjoyed everything about Cooper’s Hawk. From the drinks and appetizers to our entrees and dessert. Deciding on what to order was the only challenging part of our evening. Our waiter, Zach, was excellent.
I took my daughter here for her birthday and it was wonderful! Our server was amazing and the food and wine was great! We had the best time! We will definitely be back.
Awesome place, amazing service and the menu is built for everyone.
Mitch was too informal and exceptionally slow. It took almost two hours for a meal that normally is a one hour dining experience. He also didn't seem to know about using my on file payment method. Very disappointing after a great wine tasting with Destiny at the same location.
Great food and a better atmosphere
Overall it was good but disappointed that our table that we booked for was for bar seating and was not given. I had reserved a bar area for watching some playoff games and we were seated on the standard and we did not request. I didn’t not want to ask because we had reserve for 7:15 Ans was not seated till 7:40. I understand If we had to wait but no one advise it was delay. I had recently gone with a another reservation and going to the bar I had asked for a booth but was seated at a high top and was told there was no availability seconds later another person was seated so I am not sure if anyone even looked to se if really available. Overall the seating arrangement is not the best and friendly.
We recently joined the wine club and have dines several times. During COVID thy had reduced capacity which we liked. Looking forward to take advantage of the wine tasting.
Food was good. Services needs some improvement. I think our server was new.
Unfortunately covid has made coopers not the same
Love the experience and food quality at Cooper’s hawk!
One of the best restaurants experiences I have had since before covid. Amazing food and Mitch gave as great, fast and friendly service
Cooper’s Hawk always has amazing service. The menu has a good variety and everything we’ve ever ordered has been delicious. Excellent service, great food and nice atmosphere! They are consistent!
