Wonderful night celebrating my birthday. Our server was terrific and made our time enjoyable. Food was delicious. Our only disappointment was the removal of the maple crusted pork chop. Not fond of the Asian inspired replacement.

We went to Cooper’s Hawk for Mother’s Day 2019. We all were very pleased with the wine choices, menu choices, our server’s attention to detail, the taste of the food, and the quantity of food. Dessert (key lime pie) was fantastic. We will definitely be back and highly recommend Cooper’s Hawk.

While the place is nice, one of our two meals was just okay and dessert was wasteful. My husband ordered the shrimp and scallop risotto and it was made with long grain rice and the shrimp was extremely overcooked( so much they twisted and didn’t even look like shrimp). For $27 or so, that’s an expensive, just okay, meal. Also, dessert was not worth it. We ordered the banana bread. Literally a dry piece of banana bread on top of store bought caramel sauce. Drinks were good, service was fine, salmon dish was great.

always excellent and our server "NR" was awesome! Food excellent as always. We do low carb/keto while it can be a challenge at every restaurant we do find that Cooper's Hawk is fairly easy to rearrange things to fit how we eat.

UNFORTUNATE! “The SERVER”

As a Cooper’s Hawk Wine Club member I expected, at least, an enjoyable dining experience. I don’t recall a greeting, welcome, have you dined with us previously - the bread arrived. “The Server” would you like to order a drink? Took our drinks order and just walked away. “The Server” returned and took the appetizer order and before we could order the entrées and as before “The Server” walked away. The soup was hot, the meatballs were cool, sent the meatballs back, and they returned hot, again no comment from “The Server”.

The entrées arrived; OUTSTANDING, empty plates were removed. “The Server”, not once, returned to inquire if everything was OK. Finally, “The Server” anything else? We requested the dessert menu but decided not to order.

Received the bill and that was it. My wife reminded that the tip would to be shared; the tip should not be below 15%, it wasn’t.

Have had great times at Cooper’s Hawk; don’t think we’ll return. Next time we’ll return to Morton's The Steakhouse, Eddie’ V’s, Vines Grille & Wine Bar or for the first time Hamilton's Kitchen at the Alfond Inn.

This is our go to place in Orlando. We always make it a point to bring old friends and new for some perfectly delicious cuisine. There's a little bit of everything to meet everyone's needs and it's always cooked to perfection. Try the Brussels Sprouts appetizer. You become a Brussel sprouts lover, no joke. Pair it up with a filet mignon and you will not be disappointed. And oh, guess what? It's a winery and you can taste before you decide which of their wines is perfect for your dinner. Grab some truffles for the road on your way out to round out your perfect dinner. Join the wine club and you can keep enjoying a taste of Coopers Hawk.
