It’s was my best friends birthday. I arrived early for reservation at 8:30. We were seated at 8:50pm not a problem. We arrived at the table and the waitress already told us that Churrasco had ran out because they were busy. No problem we understand. The waiter went away without getting a drink order and took forever to return. We ordered some appetizers they were delicious. The waitress is once again no where to be found. When she came to the table to ask what we would like for dinner I wanted to order a red wine short rib and she said we don’t have that anymore. My friend wanted a risotto and they didn’t have it also. So now they ran out of more things and didn’t tell us. At this point I’m annoyed because she could’ve told us as soon as she found out. But we went along we made our orders and now we wait. FYI: it’s already 1030pm. We expressed our discontent of the time it was taking. Waiter: tell us that it’s been busy for the first time in a long time and it’s taking long because we ordered our steak medium well. Now I’m like WHAT in my head. The food finally arrived and it was delicious. But guess what still a problem the birthday girl asked for mashed potatoes and they gave her french fries. When we asked about the mashed potatoes they said we ran out; so we gave you fries. At this point I had to say something about the lack of communication, service and time management. The manager came out and told us. He told the staff in the kitchen to figure it out and what they could do was give double fries. They didn’t even come out and ask if that’s what she wanted or if she wanted to replace for something else. They try to make up by giving us a free dessert and Took off the birthday girl entree off her bill since the order was wrong. But that doesn’t take away the fact that this location is disorganized and lacks proper staff training. We have gone to copper hawks before in a different locations and we have never had issue. This branch is the issue.

Pas on the roasted veggie side dish. The veggies were underdone but burnt indicating they had the oven set too high to try to rush the roasting.
The short rib risotto and seafood risotto were excellent.
The meatball appetizer was pleasant but the sauce was a little sweet for my taste. Still, I would order them again as the meatball itself was light and well seasoned. The meat wasn’t overworked or dense like so many places.
Overall a nice experience but priced so that we have to reserve it for special occasions.

Service by “taysha” was horrible. Had to ask for bread 3 times. It finally arrived with our meal. I asked for water refill, took her 30 minutes to bring it. Was not impressed at all. Not normal for Cooper’s hawk either.

As a member of the wine club, we sometimes have too many bottles. My dining companion wanted red and I wanted your Chardonnay. We got a bottle of each and went home with two partially drunken bottles. Great set up

It really is a great time whenever we come here. Josh at the bar is one of the best. Our servers are always helpful and engaging. Food is consistent…. Can’t live without the Dumplings and slaw…… oh, and the Short rib grilled cheese and cup of tomato soup is always a favorite too!

My date and I wanted to try a wine tasting for the first time. We had an extremely great experience where we actually had to ask and push our dinner reservation back because of how much we were enjoying ourselves with our wine specialist. We ended up becoming members because we had such a fun time and are looking forward to doing our monthly tasting. After our tasting, we had a delicious dinner where we shared and appetizer and entree. Our server was extremely nice and helpful with recommending us some dishes to try.

The service with Mateo was phenomenal. At one point we were sat and a very private area and then without notice a party of 10 got set up. We asked to move in within literally 30 seconds we were brought to a very private table it was seamless and other team members helped transfer our appetizers and drinks. It’s not that we don’t enjoy other people it’s just that we didn’t want to listen to a bunch of noise and jokes and laughing and screaming. Ironically none of that ever happened. Nonetheless the manager was proving himself a great leader. the whole ambience as well as the food and the service was a hit. Ironically the bill was $30 less than I expected. Exceptional value!

We had visited a ways back, pre-covid and now midst-covid. Since the restaurant is such a large space and patron numbers are reduced, the vibe is lacking however not something that the restaurant can control, but instead an unfortunate reality. Despite this, our server and service was terrific and the quality of the food very good making the overall experience worth another visit, if not to simply enjoy a nice evening out, but to also support the workers struggling to maintain a decent income during these times.

This was our first visit to this restaurant and it was a wonderful experience. Service was excellent and the waiter was very helpful (I forget his name unfortunately) from wine selection to the various specialties.
We ordered the Caprese Flatbread for the appetizer and it was yummy. For the mains my husband ordered the Potato crusted Scallops and I ordered Chicken Madeira and both were simply delicious.
Also ordered a glass of Pinot Noir and Malbec each.
But we were very disappointed with our dessert - S’More Budino. It was just too dense and extremely rich.
But we will definitely go back.

We visited Cooper's Hawk to celebrate our anniversary. We were given a complimentary glass of wine as it was our first time visiting. Everyone was nice and welcoming. Greeted us with a smile, Happy Anniversary and a compliment. For our appetizer, we ordered the Thai Lettuce Wraps. My husband ordered the Chicken Piccata and I ordered the Salmon with the Mary Potatoes. Both entrees were delicious and flavorful. Our waiter was great, very knowledgeable of the menu and the wines that are made at the brewery. The atmosphere was very nice, quiet and relaxing.

We had a wonderful lunch, this was the first real outing for my mom after having knee surgery, we had a bit of confusion when we first arrived because we had to find a table that would be comfortable for her but the staff were accommodating and once we got sorted everything was amazing! The food was perfectly timed for us, the server was friendly and the management were amazing! The citrus sangria had me feeling right and that s'mores dessert was to die for! 10/10 would highly recommend for a wonderful dining experience! We will definitely be back!

My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary. We had reservations and were immediately seated. As soon as we sat down we were greeted by our server Amber. She asked if it was our first time and explained that they are a scratch kitchen and every menu item has a wine pairing. We started with the Drunken Shrimp appetizer....amazing! We weren’t sure of what wine we wanted and were pleasantly surprised we were able to try samples. For our entrees we ordered: Bourbon Lacquered BBQ Pork Chops and the Surf & Turf (Parmesan crusted medallions & Soy Ginger Atlantic Salmon). Everything was amazing from the service, food, wine selection, flavor, etc. As we were preparing to leave, the General Manager Kirk stopped by to introduced himself and thank us for our business. It was the perfect place to celebrate our anniversary. Can’t wait to return!

We love eating (and drinking) at Cooper's Hawk Winery & Restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale. The service is always outstanding. We always purchase the wine flights with our meals! Our food (steak for me, seafood for my wife) was wonderful, the sides dishes are great!!. Our desert was outstanding. Again, we love this place and will be back. Thanks
