We've been going to Cooper's Hawk for a while, but it keeps going down hill. It seems they some issues to work out. On this occasion, we waited 45 minutes for our appetizer (without explanation), and then our meals came out cold long after we had finished our app. On our last visit, the appetizer came out after our meals, the bread was burned (all if the surrounding tables also had burned bread), and the food just wasn't as good as normal. The wine is always good, but not sure it's worth it given the other issues.

My husband and I went to Coopershawk Winery for date night and I ordered the Filet medium along with my side dishes. My entire plate of food was cold. They offered to get a fresh plate but the time finally received my food about 45 minutes later I lost my entire appetite. The restaurant was not that busy as there were several open tables. Overall I was extremely disappointed with the entire experience.

Very noisy, we were a party of six, we were seated next to a party of at least ten, all very chatty women. We could hardly hear each other.
I ordered the fish and chips, chips were very salty, the fish had too much batter and not enough fish.

Now that you are about to carry rye whiskey, it will be even better.

It is a bit too noisy for this patron, but I happily overlook that given how wonderful every other aspect is.

We love Coopers Hawk, but this time we had to wait 45 minutes after our reservation time. We were initially told it would only be a 15 minute wait. Was extremely frustrating to watch 10+ groups get seated before us. Otherwise the rest of the experience was great.

This was my second time dining at Coopershawk in Annapolis. The wine tasting room was incredible. Our bartender was Melanie; she was very knowledgeable about the wine and gave excellent service. Even at 9:30 PM the food was excellent and the ambience was also great. Our waiter, Devonte, was not great. As noted in my reservation we were celebrating a birthday. Even though I mentioned it to our server, he did not even mention it to the birthday girl. He also only showed up to take our order and to bring the check.

The food is always good. Bee our server was excellent with lots of personality. The tasting room was packed when I arrived 35 minutes before our reservation, we went upstairs a bit early and one of the hostess seemed to be in a bad mood. It was disappointing until we sat down and interacted with our server.

Great ambiance. Usually in LOVE with the food but received rock hard calamari this time and it couldn't be remade because they were then out of it. I felt like they knew it was overcooked and gave it to me anyway since it was the very last order.

The atmosphere is wonderful. The waiter was pleasant. However, I ordered grilled broccoli with my meal and it s burnt. I did not send it back or complain. The Mexican drunken shrimp was a order of three on my plate. No one offered us to the wine tasting and I later found out that my fiancee called ahead and informed them it was my birthday. The staff that answered the phone said the request would be written on a card for the waiter. No birthday wish occurred. Patron on 4/5/19 with 7:30 pm reservations. Not the best experience for our first time.

The food was amazing, the wine was amazing. The staff at times seemed stuck up and not as attentive as I feel they should have been. Our personal waitress was pretty good, it was a busy night so I understand not getting our drinks right away. The hostess we interacted with acted as if they couldn't be bothered, and when our waitress accidentally stepped in front of another staff member, the other girl shot her a dirty look. Just not a good vibe from staff.

I tried the Maui Crunchy Shrimp (Chef's recommendation) and it was excellent. The lime infused rice with cilantro was great as well as the Asian salad. The pretzel bread is always a great way to start. Service was excellent.

Everything about this restaurant is wonderful, except; they had run out of quite a few items on the menu. This was on a Sunday evening at 6:30. I would think that they could do a better job of managing their stock. It's not like the restaurant just opened a month ago and they weren't able to anticipate the crowd. Nevertheless, I would recommend to a friend.

We were excited to try Cooper's Hawk based on the positive reviews on OpenTable and Yelp. It was just OK and not someplace I would return. Our waitress welcomed us and informed us service was going to be slow since "they sat everyone at once." She had several tables, so I am sympathetic to her plight. While we were not in a big hurry, slow was an understatement. On that note, aside from managers delivering food, I didn't notice the wait staff working like a team as I have experienced in other restaurants. A lot of the wait staff were moving about empty handed. Service was slow. It took 30-minutes to get a cup of soup after ordering it. Soft drinks took about the same amount of time. There were a lot of managers (folks not in wait staff garb), oddly enough, they didn't take the initiative to provide drink refills or clear plates. This is not the norm based on experiences elsewhere. We ordered calamari, a soup, and three entrees. Our calamari never came. When we mentioned this, our waitress was sincere in wanting to bring it. However, we had gotten our entrees and at that point, lunch had gone way longer than planned, we wanted to eat and get out. The food was mediocre. My son's burger ordered medium rare was very well done. I ordered tuna tacos which were mostly slaw with a small amount of tuna. The one hit was my son's fried chicken sandwich. He ordered it with slaw, ranch dressing , and mustard on the side. He never got the ranch and the slaw came later. Oddly, it was covered in sundried tomatoes which was NOT mentioned in the menu description. This wasn't an issue; however, it seems kind of ridiculous not to have it listed in today's day and age.

Love the food here but the service has been below par the past two times we’ve been which is very sad. They need more servers so that you are not waiting for 40 minutes without anyone checking in on you.

This was our first time and it will NOT be our last. The calamari we had as an appetizer was really good. The shrimp and scallops Rosetti was amazing. Just wish the shrimp was a little bigger and even a couple more, but overall LOVED it.

Our server was very formative and courtesy and helpful. Great guy (Forgot his name) you have working for you.

We tried a couple of wines and loved them. Had a bottle for dinner and signed up for the bottle (2) of the month (sweet was our choice).
