Cooper's Hawk Winery & Restaurant - Kentwood
Great food and great prices on wine! Wine is delicious
Been to this location in Kentwood many times; very consistent with their service and food offerings. Their house wines are quite acceptable as well.
This was my second trip to Cooper’s Hawk and enjoyed it just as much as the first time. Their menu is huge, so many great options made it hard to decide what to order. I opted for the soup and salad lunch combo, went with the chicken tortilla soup and Brussels sprout salad, both very good but loved the salad and added shrimp for my protein. My husband ordered the burger with onion straws and loved it as well. We both had the bubbles flight for drinks. All were tasty but the almond was just a tad too sweet for me. We will be back!
The menu here is outrageously diverse and everything is so amazing! It is one of my husband’s and my favorite restaurants. The servers are extremely kind and knowledgeable as well!
I work in Hospitality so my expectations are always high when I eat at a new place. A few weeks ago I can to Cooper on the recommendation of a friend without a reservation. I was turned away. I totally understood. We had driven almost an hour, but my friend had failed to mention how busy you were.
I called and made a reservation for the following week. In total, I changed it 3 times. It went from 3 to 4, to 5. It was a girls night, a celebration.
Upon arrival we were told that the third and final reservation had not been received. No if ands or buts about it, no accommodations would be made. I was mortified. I had to tell one of my guests to leave. The man at the door was rude, flippant, and overall unprofessional. As stated, I work in this industry. I lecture on Hospitality and run my own consulting firm. This was unacceptable.
A few of the gals at the desk started trying to figure something out. In the end, we got a booth that seated all 5 of us without issue. The booth would have been ours with 4 no matter what. My guest sat in her car feeling uncomfortable, unwanted, and angry. I was contemplating leaving all together.
Appetizers were great, cocktails were good, service was average. She was in the weeds most the night and we sat without our drinks a better part of the evening. The entrees were a huge letdown. After all the wait, I was completely disappointed in all our meals. We had 3 surf and turfs. Meat was over cooked, Mexican Shrimp was dry and hard, veggies (almost raw not even al dente) and potatoes were cold and sticky. Beef short ribs were over cooked and cold, and the caesar salad, well, the chicken that was supposed to be on it was microscopic. UNDERWHELMING.
Aesthetically, the place is on-trend eye appealing. However, it feel short. Way too short for the money spent.
My husband, son and I absolutely love this place. This was our second visit. I ordered the surf & turf with the filet medallions (more a medium well instead of the medium rare I asked for) and scallops (great sans the under-cleaned ones that were sandy and gritty.). Our server was pretty attentive and helpful. My son got a chocolate truffle that was not offered the last time we came, but apparently should have come with his mea, which he loved. I felt like I almost had to force the purchase of the bottle of ice wine I wanted to get and waited over 5 minutes to be helped. Overall I still like this place a lot, but some things need needed work!
We could still sit outside on the patio in 40 degree weather, due to heaters right above the tables, and screened in patio. We decided to share the bacon shrimp appetizer and a tossed salad. I asked for a sub for the guac, which was taken care of with no issues. The shrimp was so good, we will each order our own next time. Service, as always, was professional, but friendly. And we always manage to enjoy a nice glass of wine.
I had the tacos and they were very good. The key lime pies was amazing too!
Everything we ordered was absolutely amazing. Hot, fresh and very tasty.
Our server Andrea was delightful! Friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Food was prompt and delicious!
I waitress was the best ever. Such a fun experience.
I know many people are wild about this place and i had heard good things about it. I think the hope is that you will drink enough before the food arrives and not notice it’s just dressed up chain food. I enjoyed the ahi tuna appetizer but my Mediterranean salad was over done with dressing and every vegetable imaginable...if they were aiming for a westernized fatoush, it missed the mark. The Parmesan fries came out cold and old but to their credit they made a fresh batch. My dining companions enjoyed medallions and a steak. The food just seemed to be pouring over the plates.
The service was good but a bit slow and while everyone followed covid protocol, they really seemed to pack patrons in.
Was wonderful!! Though our table wasn’t ready upon arrival they made special accommodations for us to stay a bit later than usual. Super nice staff. Very accommodating. And the food was spectacular.
server was very unattentive and disinterested in our dining experience.
It was an excellent experience. Our waiter, I think his name was Michael, was very pleasant, and very helpful in offering suggestions. The food and wine was fabulous. We had an outstanding evening.
Good food. Lots of menu variety. Were out of a few things.
I love everything about this place. Very safe re Covid-19, for starters. Lots of space between tables, and our server assured us that they are taking all the measures necessary to make sure that the wait staff and the customers are kept safe. Don't pass up the caprese flatbreat appetizer! I had chicken piccata, and it was delicious! Had enough left for another dinner the next day, and they sent me home with a roll to go with it! The offerings are a little pricey, but the quality warrants that...especially when I had leftovers! NOT skimpy! Thank you, Kate, for being a terrific server.
Unique menu, everything is great.... something for everyone. Drinks are very good, of course wine selection is endless, plus they have wine tasting.
Good service and food, quite a few gluten free options. I will most definitely be back.
Great menu choices. Foodcwas flavorful. Liked it al9t.
Great place, huge menu, only complaint was the patio was cold and it was raining/sleeting, but not their fault.
Everything here was amazing. We sat at a table along the bar and the bartenders were so sweet, attentive and fun to talk to! Although it was busy, we had great service. The food and drinks were phenomenal also. We will definitely be back! :)
We went because it was our Anniversary and a family member recommended this place to us. The food was so good. Our waiter was amazing. Gave suggestion and was right on. Definitely going back. Would recommend this place for sure!
I loved it! Every time I go there the staff are so friendly and amazing! Food is incredible and so is the wine!
Cooper's Hawk is one of our very favorite restaurants. Jacob greeted us as we arrived and he was very pleasant. This is a very nice "welcome to our restaurant gesture". We made a reservation for dinner on Open Table. We were seated immediately. We had the pleasure of having Andrea as our server. She did an awesome job. She, too, was very pleasant and knowledgeable as were the food servers. Our appetizers, meal and dessert were delicious. Please extend our compliments to your chefs as well. Everything was prepared exactly as we had requested. The wine was excellent. We had a lovely time at Cooper's Hawk and we always learn something new about wine. When you look around the restaurant, everyone seems to be having a delightful time. Thanks to all who made our evening so special.
Loved enjoying a fall dinner on the patio. Dinner, drinks and dessert were all delicious!
We stopped in with friends to celebrate my birthday with wine tasting and dinner. The evening was very enjoyable and the wine and food were very good. Highly recommend this place for an evening out.
We have been members for a couple of years and have never had a bad meal or bad experience, in fact, I have never had a lunch or dinner special that wasn’t excellent.
Amazing! Always is! One of our favorites.
Birthday dinner. Great selection and nice atmosphere. Everyone enjoyed their meal and several different orders.
Another great dinner.
During this time I feel they do a great job keeping you safe.
Never disappointed eating here. Truly one of my favorite places. Food is always great, service is friendly and great wine!
Always excellent. We come from the lakeshore once a month and have never been disappointed. Food and service are better than more expensive places.
We LOVED our server. She was amazing
The food is outstanding and the service is excellent. This is one place you have to try.
Took my kids on a mommy daye
Went there to celebrate my wife's birthday and we are very happy we did. Great atmosphere, service and food! Our waitress was incredible! She was very knowledgable of the various foods, did not rush us to make our dinner choices and addressed all of our questions. We joined to monthly wine club so we'll be back again!
Lots of great items on the menu along with wine pairings. Service was attentive and prompt. Wonderful experience!
Our food was ‘warm’ when we expected it to be ‘hot’. This has happened on other visits. BUT..
