Had 2 different servers. One started & then another took over. No one paid attention to us...delays with drink orders, serving drinks, ordering meals, ordering wine, serving wine when we were half way thru meal.
Food was very good. Menu had a good variety.

I recommend Cooper's Hawk in Wheeling to friends all the time. It is very well managed and has a great staff. The food is always top quality. Because it was Easter I splurged and order the Filet Medallions and they were delicious. I am a wine club member and enjoy the wine there, but they make other wonderful drinks and have very charming bartenders -- Will and Cassandra.

Undercooked steak, returned, somewhat better the second time. One burger came out as a cheeseburger, had to cook another. One dish had to be requested again when all others had been served.

Our Easter lunch was fantastic, however my family was seated in the back of the restaurant and it took a while to get service and frankly they weren't that busy. Other than that minor annoyance, we enjoyed our lunch and will be back.

first time here, was a business meal. Service was friendly but a little busy

tried the CH white a pinot gris/Riesling blend which was better than expected. Fried calamari was a generous portion and had a delicious glaze on it.

I had the short rib risotto cooked in a beef broth and was really good

In short excellent food, great wine list and good service. What else do you need. I'll be back

I have gone to this restaurant at this location for years. Tonight was by far the worst service we have ever received. Waitress was non-existent. After serving 2 appetizers and not seeing waitress for 45+ minutes, she asked us if we were ready for the check! We hadn’t even ordered the entree. They were not even as crowded as usual on a Friday night.

We've been to Cooper's Hawk many times. This time we had several gift cards so we went all out with appetizers, drinks and surf and turf. We were seated in the small event room directly across from the hostess stand which lacked the ambiance if the rest of the restaurant. The lobby noise and the phone constantly ringing did not add to our experience. The room itself with The frayed carpet was disappointing as well.
Having said that, our experience with our waiter Michael was amazing. He was knowledgeable about the drinks and helpful with food substitutions since several in our party keep low carb.
The brussel sprouts appetizer was amazing. Even people in our party who never thought to order such an item were super impressed! We also ordered the ahi appetizer and that was good as well.
Our dinner appetizers included parmesan crusted filet medallions, Mexican drunken shrimp, pork chop, grouper and New York strip. At around $30 the surf and turf options were a great deal and we were able to substitute in asparagus and a side salad for the root vegetables and potatoes.
This was probably one of our most memorable experiences at Cooper's Hawk.

Overall very nice but a bit noisy and crowded on a Friday evening. The wine was very good, the food ok although I felt my dish was over sauced. The Maui shrimp was very good. Finally, our server was excellent, efficient and nice.

Cooper's Hawk consistently delivers good food. While it's definitely not gourmet dining, it's great American fare done well. I return to Cooper's Hawk again and again and am never disappointed. BTW, be sure to check out the chocolate truffles! They're to die for!

We love Cooper's Hawk. We are wine club members. Glad to post a review.

Let's start with service: Our server, John was terrific. We asked the manager to give him "kudos." Our servers are always, great, I must say. In the recent past Mike and Genesis worked double duty for my husband and I (Mike was finishing his shift, Genesis was starting and we benefitted with all the attention). Have literally NEVER had bad service.

Ambiance: If you want a quiet, romatic evening, probably not Cooper's Hawk in wheeling on a Friday or Saturday night. It's a little noisy. Fun, but noisy. Sunday might be a better choice for quiet.

Food: Food is always good. I get the veggie burger. Even that is good. Most people get something with beef (steak, steak sandwich, burger) and are always happy. Had pot stickers and egg rolls for apps. Always great choices. We couldn't order the calamari because we had the two other apps, but I recommend it without reservation. We paired everything with the wine of the month. Delicious.

In conclusion: fun to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or just to enjoy with good friends and family.

As usual all was perfect. My only complaint would be that it was rather difficult to hear others in our party because of the noise level. Very crowed at the wine tasting bar but the wine pourers handled all of us with ease.
