The food was good but our waitress was all over the place . I think she was being stretched this night. She apologized a lot because we asked for things and had to wait awhile each time.

The food and drinks were great and the atmosphere as well. I had a special note written in my reservation ahead of time and the waitress forgot to write which kind of ruined the special occasion. Please pay more attention to the reservation notes in the future.

Cooper's Hawk is always great. Wait staff is friendly and attentive. The food is consistently good. The Brussel sprouts appetizer is a must. Nice selections of wine, but also have beer and other drinks if not a wine lover. Would recommend this place to everyone!!!

Went for Thanksgiving dinner. Some of us had turkey and others had food off the regular menu and it was all very good. We enjoyed different wines and the service was excellent. Highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely be going back.

I had a wonderful time with my friend. Wine tasting, dinner and birthday celebration. The waitress was a doll. And our host for the wine tasting so sweet and kind.

The food was amazing. I had braised short ribs and my friend had vegetable enchiladas. We could not get over how good it tasted. And the key lime pie. The best one ever. But the service was meh. The lady was very nice and she delivered everything but we waited for food an hour!!!!!! At 3pm!!!!! Then for the dessert 30 min easily. Everything just took forever. And we had to ask for bread! We realized we never got it when we already had our food on the table. All that hour waiting with no bread or anything (wine samples also took very long).

The tasting bar was dirty. There was spilt wince on it for the entire time we did our tasting. The bottles on display were very dusty. And the floor was dirty behind our too. There were rubber gloves and crumbs on it. The service was also very slow during our tasting.
The restaurant area seemed very loud, especially one which was extremely loud for a group of four. Our service was very nice. However, our fingers had the wrong sides and then we needed to wait for them to fix the problem.
It was not and enjoyable or relaxing evening like we normally experience at other Cooperhawk restaurants.

The wine was not as good as I remembered and the lobster bisque of which I usually love felt watered down! Otherwise a great place to go.

Cooper's Hawk is a wonderful date night. Always seems to be a positive atmosphere at every location we've been. Great food, broad selection of wine. Nightjar port was a perfect night cap.

I've had very good experiences visiting Cooper's Hawk locations for tastings and dinner in the past, but i will be continuing to go to the Oak Park location because of the OUTSTANDING experience I've had the last two times I've been there. The staff is so nice and I feel comfortable every step of the way.
Dinner was delicious and the presentation is also on par with the service.
I recommend this location to anyone i talk to.

I highly recommend Coopers Hawk for diners with gluten sensitivity or celiac disease. Their extensive gluten free menu is amazing & they will also do substitutions if able.

We actually stumbled upon this restaurant. We started with a bottle of wine then shared the meatballs & fried calamari. Both were delicious. We had the filet mignon, mac n cheese, Parmesan fries, asparagus, and mashed potatoes. All were well cooked. Our server was awesome and made recommendations. Overall, wonderful experience.
