We have been 2 bottle members of Cooper's Hawk, off and on, since early 2012. My wife and I have always loved this restaurant and this location is, by far, the greatest.

For starters, the service is astounding. We were served by Lauren during our most recent visit whose 5-star professionalism, kindness, and knowledge about the restaurant prompted this review. With that said, we were also impressed by the hostess and wine-bar staff who served us and made the restaurant feel like a second home. Truly astounding to any standard.

Apart from the phenomenal staff, the food was excellently prepared, timely in it's delivery, and absolutely delicious. We both ordered the Filet Minon with different sides to share. The steak was excellently cooked and the sides were exceptional as well. Sometimes I feel that it's difficult to get a quality medium-rare steak, but not here!

We also ordered dessert which was a great treat. The s'mores was a wonderful end to the meal and complimented the experience beautifully. A definite recommendation to anyone visiting this restaurant.

With all said and done, Cooper's Hawk is truly memorable and exciting. That said, it's truly the staff, including memorable servers like Lauren, that make this an experience worth coming back for time and time again.

Thanks and cheers to you Cooper's Hawk!

We had a lovely time. Got there about 4:30 and sat and talked and had a wonderful meal. My companions had never been to a Coopers Hawk before. I think you may have some converts! By the time we left (7:00) it was getting a bit on the noisy side and we had to raise our voices to be heard-not too hard to do because we are all teachers/administrators.

We came here to celebrate a belated Mother’s Day and had the absolute worst experience ever. I’m a club member of Cooper’s hawk and I have dined at 5 different locations within the past 4 months. Our food took an hour to arrive and I can’t believe it left the kitchen in the condition it arrived at our table. The vegetables were charred black, the gnocchi was far over cooked and my lettuce for the lettuce wraps were soggy. We ended up pouring our own wine, the sangria we ordered took absolutely too long. I felt so terrible for bringing my mother in law to such a terrible dining experience. The good quality and service were shameful.

I was put at a smaller table and I made reservations for a party of 6, I had to show email to prove it. Over an hour I waited on my food and it never made it to my table. I left the restaurant and half hour later. My birthday was ruined.

The service was very very slow. Apparently they over cooked my grouper and restarted the dish. For whatever reason neither our server nor a manager came to advise us of the problem.We waited over 45 min to eat and we were a table of 3. The server suggested that we ask for a manager. When the manager came over he was not pleasant nor apologetic, he was gruff. He offered nothing Not even an empathetic ear for our wait. Our time is valuable and so is our money. As a member of the Oak Park community, I am aware of the multiple local restaurant options. I don't feel compelled to return anytime soon.

We reserved 7 for Mother’s Day but called to add one additional person over the phone. I was told there was no way that could be done and we would have to change our reservation from 4:30 to 8:45, we almost cancelled. On Mother’s Day an extra chair was added with on issue at all.....

It was Mother’s Day so we expected it to be a little busy. However, we didn’t expect cold food or a server who didn’t listen. When we sat down and gave him our wine club cards he advised that he didn’t see my rewards on my account that I advised that I wanted to use. After going back and forth with me, he finally decided to ask someone for help. We asked for a new knife for the bread and he pointed to the used knife on my sisters plate and said, “do you want to just use that one? It may be a while.” Our appetizer, the egg rolls were cold. I ordered a new shrimp dish since the shrimp & polenta is no longer on the menu. It consisted of fried shrimp, lime rice and a summer slaw. The server placed my meal before me and said here is your food, but we shorted you some shrimp so those will be out later. I was just about done when the missing shrimp arrived. . The rice was cold & sticky so I left all of that on my plate and the shrimp were cooked so hard I scraped the roof of my mouth when eating them. My sister ordered the fish sandwich. Her fries were so cold, we weren’t sure that they had ever been cooked. When asking for hot fries, the server brought my sister new fries, but with Cajun seasoning which she cannot have as she’s allergic to anything spicy. He brought a third order which still had the Cajun seasoning on them. She told the server they were still wrong but didn’t want anymore. He advised these are new fries. She pointed out the plain cold fries and the clearly red seasoning on the new order he’d delivered. Our server was nice for the most part, but perhaps inexperienced. Also, with a busy day like Mother’s Day, there is no way the food should not be piping hot and fresh, especially considering we were seated directly outside of the kitchen. I love this restaurant, but this was not a good visit at all.

I would recommend Cooper's Hawk at this location for the food. The service was very good, but they got one of our orders slightly incorrect. We had a gluten free/dairy free person at the table and the server thought gluten and dairy were the same thing. Therefore although the person's meal was gluten free, it was not dairy free. a little disappointing since we were very clear on the gluten and dairy free meal.

4 of us went the evening prior to Mother's Day. The restaurant was very busy. We had a reservation and we were seated timely. The food was very good and our waitress was good. However, the kitchen delayed in filling our food order. As a result, we sat for about 1/2 hour longer than normal to get our food. The waitress and manager apologized & gave us a free dessert. It was still a nice experience and I'd return.
