It was great. With Social distances and the staff wearing mask I felt safe and comfortable. The food, wine and ambiance was all great.

Our server was terrible. She couldn't remember any drink or food orders. She wasn't writing them down at all. Our drink took about 10 minutes to get when she remembered them. There was a gnat in my drink. Our server forgot my boyfriend's drink until the end of the dinner when we received our check. Our food was mediocre at best. The serving size for the sides were very small compared to restaurants of the same caliber. I will never waste my time or $ at this franchise ever again.

My coworkers and I went there to celebrate their multiple birthdays. The service was great. We were seated promptly. Everything was really nice. My only complaint is the lack of parking and no valet parking service.

I showed the waitress a photo of a sangria I had previously had, she said oh I know which one that was. Absolutely did not bring the right one! It didn’t even look anything like the photos I showed her! Was so disappointed, I know covid has restaurant suffering so I felt bad being like nope change because she said those are made to order. It was mentioned to her that it was off and tasted very bitter but she didn’t say anything. Then I ordered steak and the vegetables were extremely burned, I was just there 2 weeks ago and they weren’t like that. These were so burnt that some I couldn’t even tell what they were until I bit into them.

Reservation still got me a poor eating area and Gnocchi tasted like it was cooked days before. Too pricey for the quality and experience, when compared to other Italian restaurants in the city.

Running late again so stopped in for something light. Soup and salad, excellent tortilla soup. Next time I will just get soup. Surprising busy for the late hour on a Saturday night.

I love Cooper’s Hawk and am a wine club member. I was excited to see that they had heaters, because the Chicago wind is chilly. My waitress had a really bad attitude, but the manager was really accommodating. It was the end of the night and the our food was just okay. I will go back because I realize this was not this restaurant’s normal performance.

The sever was nice but seemed to be bothered by something and we felt rushed whenever we asked for something. It was that busy either. However, I always have a good time when I dine at this location.

I’ve heard amazing thing about coopera hawk so we were pumped to try it! We made a reservation at 7:45 and as we arrived we can see there were many open seats outside when we requested to sit outside we were told they were all booked up, when we left there were still plenty of open seats. We ordered the surf and turf with pistachio crusted grouper. Meat was tender but tiny and the grouper was the best thing we had. We ordered a crusted chicken entree and the drunken shrimp and with both, you can taste the oil it was fried it. The wine was good but I had such high expectations the food really disappointed me. Maybe we have to try another location? Glad we at least tried it once but we may never go back.

Lisa our waiter was not personable at all. She wasn’t attentive and we spent most of our time waiting for her to come back to check on us. I’m a wine club member and the best part of this restaurant is becoming the wine.

I ordered the filet mignon well done. My steak was completely burnt. They remade it and gave me the same sides from the first plate. So my mashed potatoes and broccoli was cold🙄

Eating lunch outdoors at Cooper's Hawk on a lovely fall afternoon was beautiful. Despite a little chill in the are, the food and beverages were good and plentiful. It was a lovely way to spend time with a dear friends celebrating a birthday.

Our server seemed to be overwhelmed taking care of our party of four and a few other large groups. It seemed a struggle for him to even keep our drinks filled. Ran out of water and ice tea at the table repeatedly. Even once the larger parties left he did not seem anymore attentive to our needs. I was disappointed having received incredible service on all of our other visits.

Food quality was great as usual and items ordered came to the table hot and looking beautiful. Everything was cooked perfectly and presented well.....I might be addicted to the brussel sprout appetizer. That is a dish I would happily have as my side to an entrée.

Our party was at Cooper's Hawk because a dear friend was visiting from out of town and she adores the restaurant. I wanted to make her visit even more special by taking her, my wife and another girlfriend out to a nice dinner at a special spot. I really do not think the ladies notice the things I did but I have been in customer service for many years and started my adult working career in the "back of the house". The kitchen was spot on but the front of the house was a bit off it would seem. On nearly every visit the front manager drops by our table and other checking on the customers..... it really seemed like she was doing hostess duty and table reset.

Overall I know we will be back in the future due to our love of the food and the restaurant in general.
