Malcolm, our waiter, was great. Food and wine excellent—our friends had never eaten there before.

Service was great - food was (at best) bland. The guacamole that was part of the Mexican Drunken Shrimp appetizer had entirely too much lemon in it, completely masking the taste of the avocado. The churrasco steak had no flavor. There were clearly seasonings used, but they just didn’t stand out. The chimichurri “sauce” had no flavor either.

We love Coopers Hawk but this visit was by far the best. Our amazing waiter Nathan made our family happy and comfortable throughout our dinner. Nothing was too much trouble for him. Great night. Will definitely be back again!

They had a wonderful happy hour menu. The meatballs, potstickers and flatbread pizza were very good. Our grouped shared a Caesar salad and gnocchi carbonara and they were excellent. The caramel apple pie dessert topped it off perfectly. We will definitely be back.

The Food obviously sat a long time before it finally got to our table... it was jelled////the second bottle of wine and two glasses of Almond Prosecco we ordered took over 20 minutes to arrive... We will not be back to this location... it’s not the first time we have wasted our time and money at Reston . We are members and don’t always feel like driving to Ashburn so we will most likely cancel the membership. We were with other family members so it was awkward to complain on the spot... we even tipped the waiter although he seemed overwhelmed and confused/////

I would like to start off with a big two thumbs up for the bartender who was working that night by the name of Hannah!! This young lady was amazing, my wife and I watched as she pulled ticket after ticket to serve each server their customers drinks and still had time to be courteous and serve us at the bar with smile and answer any questions....kudos to you Hannah. Fast, courteous, proficient and knowledgeable.

Overall, a very good experience especially with the food and overall ambiance. Prices are a bit higher than expected but you do get a large quantity. Our waiter provided excellent customer service however they did take 20 minutes to seat us even with a reservation. The food also took about an hour to come out for 9 people. So I would give a 7/10 on service and 8/10 on food.

My wife and I made reservations for our anniversary. We were seated and that's when things turned bad. We waited for our server to come and it took about 10 minutes. He said that he would bring bread to the table after he put in our drink order. We received our drinks and noticed that other tables that were seated after us had received their bread as we waited. My wife has some food allergies and the waiter noted it. My wife said if what she ordered could not be prepared to address these allergies she gave an alternate selection. We ordered appetizers and ordered a second drink at which we found out was not made correctly the first time and was given an excuse that bartenders sometimes do this which is unacceptable. My wife received hers and after about 10 minutes later our meals came. I received what I had ordered and my wife received her alternate selection. The waiter never came back and said that her first choice could not be prepared the way she could eat it but just received the alternate choice. I asked the server who happened to be a Floor Manager that brought our meals about my appetizers. She said that maybe the waiter did not get in because it happens sometimes which is unacceptable. The meals seemed to be precooked and not fresh and almost uneatable. I was not very happy with the quality of service or the quality of the food. I was not compensated for my appetizer or the drink being made wrong. I will not return or recommend this establishment to anyone.

The server had too many people and was distracted. They served our main entree and did not notice that my boss did not even have a fork. We could not get anyone’s attention for 10 minutes! Also we had to wait for 30 minutes for a refill on drinks. Very disappointing for such a fine restaurant:(

I"ve been to this restaurant on several occasions. This will be the last time I dine there. Upon entering the restaurant, we approached the hostess stand, to be ignored by a gentlemen who was more concerned with being on his phone, then greeting a customer. I waited a few minutes, and then decided to clear my throat. He looked up, clearly annoyed that I disturbed his texting session. I told him I had a reservation for 4 and he then began to argue with the other host about where to seat us. A few more awkward minutes pass and the other hostess finally brings us to a table. We sit and wait about 10 minutes before we are greeted by the server. We ordered a bottle of wine and 1 beer. We received the wine fairly quickly, but after 20 minutes, no beer. We asked the server who said that the bartender was alone and was going slow. It's not like he had to make a cocktail, he had to pour a beer. It was pretty obvious the server just forgot and then when we inquired, she put in the order. Our food finally arrived. It was decent, but nothing remarkable. I didn't finish my meal and asked for a box. The server insisted that she would box my leftovers up for me. Well, that was the last time I saw my food. She never returned with the box of leftovers and when I inquired, she didn't seem to remember where she put it. At that point, I didn't even want my food because who knows where it had been or what could've been done to it. So I only got to enjoy half my meal since she lost the other half. Now on to dessert. We were celebrating my father's birthday and he wanted dessert. We ordered 2 cups of coffee and 1 key lime pie. The coffee came quickly. The entire cup o coffee was done and still no dessert. 20 minutes later, she finally brings dessert with no acknowledgement of how long it took or no offer of refilling the coffee that had already been finished waiting. At that point we asked for the check. The service has a lot to be desired and the food is nothing remarkable. I definitely

Great evening. The waiter was good but just seemed tired - our food was served and everyone had cutlery except me and then I couldn’t find a waiter anywhere. The wine was great and so was the food.

Truly an amazing experience! Our server for the night was Paris, he made us feel at home while celebrating a surprise bridal shower for one of our friends. Wine kept coming, food was excellent, as always! Choose CHW&R as your next place for a nice evening with friends or just your love. ❤️

I love this restaurant, but find that they don't have enough wait staff for busy times. The place was packed for lunch. While we were seated right away, and someone brought waters, we waited at least 15-20 minutes, then just flagged down one of the servers (not our original one). He was gracious and apologetic, and took our orders. He did check on us throughout the meal.

This was our first visit at the Reston location. While the food was decent, my main complaint about this location is the service. The hostess was not friendly (in fact she seemed irritated with us) and our waiter got our order wrong and blamed us. I also ordered the wine pairing with my meal, which is listed beside each dish as a "BIN #." When I ordered the pairing with my dish by that number, the waiter responded, "We don't know the BIN numbers." So I looked it up and told him what it was, but I found that to be a little odd. He could've just written down the number, looked it up, and kept that comment to himself. Since the staff made this visit unpleasant, we do not plan on returning to the Reston location. We'd much rather go to the Ashburn location since the service there is much more professional and the staff is very friendly.

Food is always outstanding at Cooper's Hawk. What made this particular visit so outstanding was our waitress. She was so personable, informative, and attentive. She was the BEST waitress we have had at any restaurant in many years and we eat out a lot.
