This was the first time at this restaurant. The three of us had a great time. Service was outstanding and they lets us sit and talk for a sometime. The price was outstanding for what we got. I had the chicken an it was very good

We had an early reservation, which worked out well. But once the restaurant filled up, it was extremely difficult to carry on a conversation with everyone at the table. It was very loud, and we were tucked up against a window wall in a booth. Apparently everyone was there having a good time, but it was much to loud. I typically don't experience this at lunch time and probably would think twice about a dinner reservation.

I had a hair and hair ball in my food. It was very disgusting. It couldn’t get the entire piece out of my mouth so I had to spit my food in a napkin. It was beyond gross and terrible. I still love the place.

Unfortunately not a great night all around, food and service were not up to par. Our server seemed to be in a hurry and never checked on us. Food was warm at best, mine was quite salty the other meals at the table which we've had before also seemed off.

Loved dining at coopershawk. Great food, great wine and great service! I just wish the noise was less. It was difficult to have conversation with someone next to you or across the table.

Wine tasting was excellent - two bottles of wine of the month came home with us. We kept dinner simple. I had a cup of the lobster bisque (really good) and the potstickers for dinner. We have been to CH (several locations) and it never disappoints.

had a business dinner reservation for 5:30 pm, was running late so had to reschedule to 7:30 pm, wouldn't accommodate us at 6:30 pm, but the wine tasting kept the people busy while we were waiting. not sure i won't book a more accommodating restaurant next time.

This is honestly one of the best places to go for a 'Girl's Night', a 'Date Night' or just to have a great dinner and drinks with friends. The pricing is decent and the food is great!! I would love to come here a lot more often.

Our experience was great. The service was amazing even though we outstayed the 1st sever. We were there quite a while and was not at all rushed. I had filet medallions which were perfect but the bacon shrimp were over done. My cousin had the salmon special and was quite pleased. The Chardonnay was pleasant and we ordered coffee along with Irish cream and frangelica to make our own specialty coffees and had no problem getting refills on the coffee to continue our specialty coffee. We’ll definitely be back.

We had (as usual) an excellent dinner for my 66th birthday. The pretzel bread was warm and delicious. I had the Surf and Turf option with the Parmesan Crusted Filet Medallions and a Crab Cake, which was wonderful, and the mashed potatoes and roasted vegetables were flavorful accompaniments. It was a wonderful surprise to be treated with a white chocolate truffle and chocolate covered strawberry and a birthday candle at the end of the meal. We will definitely be back!

The waiter was horrible. Had already marked out for a bday and 6 ladies and announced to hostess whose bday it was and horrible service. Never asked for any drink refills, we had to ask 3 times for bread. Restaurant was closed at 11 and we would of been out of there long before if we ever got our checks to pay.
Was just very bad service and we’ve been to this location numerous times

Entree of surf and turf ( steak and shrimp) was poor. Shrimp were both burned and cold. Steak was over done.

Bruschetta was mediocre. Tomatoes cut in half only when usually they are diced. Cheese was runny. Just not a great offering.

Picked up 3 bottles of wine for my wine club selections and a cab was provided when I ordered a barbera.

Overall one of the poorest experiences I’ve had at this venue. It will be a long while until I return and I’m also likely to cancel my wine club subscription.

This was the second year in a row that we celebrated our anniversary dinner with friends at Cooper's Hawk in Wheeling. The crispy brussel sprouts appetizer never disappoints! I ordered the salmon Piccata special over sauteed spinach with a side of asparagus. Other than the asparagus being way too thick, everything else was phenomenal! With many people steering away from carbs it would be nice to offer a side salad in place of the potato. We asked and unfortunately this is not yet an option.

I've been a member of Coopers Hawk for many years now. As such, I've visited 4 of the locations and never had an experience like I did at the Wheeling, IL one. The clientele were rude, snooty and very impolite. After waiting 20 minutes to get a wine tasting, we gave up and went to the bar. The place was NOT busy AT ALL.... it's just that the people who were taking up all the room at the tasting area refused to move over 2 inches to allow for someone else to get in. The bartenders were extremely rude, couldn't even smile, took forever to get us 2 drinks.. then we asked for the check and were met with a "heh" as she tossed it at us. Oh, excuse me, I didn't know it was there already. If not for the fantastic server (Mike) in the dining room, I would consider canceling my membership altogether after this experience. Our server was professional, kind, never missed a beat all night and even laughed with us a little bit. We ordered appetizers, main course, dessert and wine. All of the food was exceptional, as expected. But I don't need the rude attitude to go along with it, especially for the price paid and the amount I give every month to be a member. I'm quite honestly shocked - I've never had an experience like this at ANY Coopers Hawk restaurant. I would absolutely not recommend this location. Go to Arlington Heights or Barrington - much nicer!!

Service was slow and substandard. It took 15 minutes for us to be able to place our drink order. We didn’t feel like a priority to the server. The bartender for our tasting was amazing, despite it being incredibly busy.

The calamari was good. We ordered Sweet & Crunchy Shrimp and the Maui shrimp. Not only did we realize that both were made the same way, the shrimps were also overcooked. They were too dry.

Everything was awesome except the response at the reception staff.
I made a reservation but she said there was no reservation she found. But she said it's k, was going to let me have a seat. It's hard to understand. Except that, everything was excellent as usual.
