I love Cooper’s Hawk, but it was not a good COVID choice because the outdoor seating isn’t very warm and there isn’t a tent.
Delicious sea bass dinner and excellent service, safe outside dining
Love Cooper’s Hawk foe every occasion and every price point.
I enjoyed the outside seating, food and wine but what made the meal outstanding was the server, Will. He was hands down one of the best servers ever. You could tell how much he enjoyed his job. Without hovering he was always available. Both my companion and I have both been in the restaurant business so we know what makes a great server. I hope he stays at the Wheeling location because we will make a point to ask for his table when dining there.
Outdoor dining experience was great. Amid Covid, we felt very safe and was pleased with the safety measures put in place. Food and service was excellent as always!
We ate outside and were lucky that we had an absolutely gorgeous afternoon. Being later in the season even kept the bees away! Still wish they had the tent up as the weather starts to get cooler.
It was fine
Everything was good, service is still figuring out the outdoor efficiency so a bit awkward but we had our lunch within the reservation window! All very good! We are regulars here.
The service was very slow and the waiter was not accommodating to our requests. The food was also very poor in quality, wilted and brown lettuce in the salads and minimal dressing given when asked for it on the side. Also the plates had old food on them and had to be sent back.
Amazing food, wonderful wine& super service !! As a wine member we get birthday credits to use! Awesome place like no other!
The waiter and food was amazing! Perfect anniversary dinner! Thank you!
Would love to say we stayed to enjoy the meal - we love Coopers Hawk and it was our anniversary but their outdoor area is a joke. We saw it was just a few metal outside tables with no real lighting, no way to block the wind, so really no heat. As it was in the 50° range last night and extremely windy, we chose to leave and found a table up the street to drop our $200+. We understand the issues currently facing restaurants, but this is not going to be a short term issue so they should invest in a way to keep customers - if there is a walled tent and heaters we will come even when it’s snowing!
Amazing food and wine. Our server, Samantha, was awesome!
The chef at the Wheeling location is amazing. The wine braized short ribs are to die for
Excellent job by the restaurant and the staff. Horrible that Gov. Pritzker has shut them down again and keeps moving the goalposts on metrics and is not transparent about who, how much and where the virus is spreading. Protect the people in our nursing homes (under State of IL control) where most of the deaths have occurred and the elderly and leave the rest of the population to use their best judgement.
Consistently outstanding menu selection, food quality, service and atmosphere.
Excellent experience, great food and service. Highly recommended
Will was our waiter and also is the bartender. If you’ve never sat it the bar dining area you’re missing a great experience with Will. Our dining experience was amazing as always. The food is always consistent and delicious.
Since I've been coming here I haven't been disappointed with any of the dishes. Everything has been delicious.
Jacob was fantastic and patient with our group! Wine was great and food was delicious! Would recommend to anyone!
Great food, great service. Other than the social distancing and mask foolishness I really liked it.
Always a great go to place. Great wine membership value too.
An outstanding experience, again, at Coopers Hawk.
Took my nephew, he enjoyed his meal and service!
Food and service were amazing. Cannot wait to return!!!
Always enjoy dining with family, friends & clients. The food, wine, and the atmosphere is always great.
We had a great time during our wine tasting but our dinner experience was disappointing. My dinner was delivered cold - had to be replaced. The server was very inattentive toward the end of our service. Our bill was wrong twice.
We told the staff in advance that we needed to be especially careful because we were bringing an 88-year old great grandma. They had her enter through a side door and sat us at a back table with a lazy susan. That way she could keep far from everyone not in our party and get easily served. It was perfect for our group.
Service was great! Our waitress was very personable and during this time made us feel very comfortable. She was responsive to all our requests.
It was okay. I had better service at other locations.
We tried this one because we couldn’t get a reservation at Arlington heights. Overall good time. The waiter stopped at the rowdy table next to us more than ours leaving a few times we waited to ask for more drinks or water. We will probably still prefer Arlington heights over this wheeling location.
Food, wine, and service where outstanding!
We had reservations and were seated promptly. We sat for over 15 minutes without even being recognized by our waitress and not offered any water. Since we were only allowed 2 hours under the pandemic situation, I had to go to the front desk and complain about not being waited on for that time. I asked to see the manager about extending our reservation time to 15 minutes longer cause of the lack of service. So when 4went back to our table, the manager said something to our waitress and she finally came, gave us our water along with plates for our bread. When passing out the plates, they were filthy with dried food. We then had to complain about the unsanitized plates. The manager finally came to our table and apologized and gave us our meals on them. It was thoughtful of him to do that, but to have to go through all the trouble, it ruined our afternoon. I will seriously consider whether I dine in again.
Great food and service. Look forward to returning.
Great food and service. Excellent night and great ambience for 27 year anniversary.
Excellent food and wine. Great lunch menu. Service was excellent, with minimum wait time for table
Wonderful, not crowded wine tasting and lunch experience. Service was attentive and pleasant.
Spontaneous date night using my Bday promo
Always good seating and service! Wine selection the best! Holiday, Birthday’s or any occasion- gift cards or a great bottle of wine for friends and family!
Mike our waiter was great
So attentive so nice
He should be retained as long as possible
