My husband and I love coming here and use any excuse we can to eat here. It's always a nice time to eat some yummy food and drink some amazing wine. The ambiance is also perfect for a casual meal or a birthday celebration dinner!

We were not sure what was the worst part of our dinner. The restaurant is noisy and pretentious (e.g., its approach to hawking its house brand and mediocre wine). The service abysmal- we had to ask our waiter to bring our wine, the appetizer plates were not cleared (leaving no room when the staff brought our entrees), we waited over an hour for our food. The food, at best, was unexceptional - no one in our party of four enjoyed their meal. As an example, my filet mignon - one of the most expensive items on the menu - was dry and I had the taste of tenderizer in my mouth for the rest of the evening. Although I ordered it medium rare, it arrived well-done; I thought about sending it back but the rest of my party had their food - and we had already waited an hour. And the price point, in terms of value, was ridiculous.

All in all, an utter disaster. We won’t be back.

Another excellent experience at Cooper’s Hawk. We were a party of six celebrating my daughter’s birthday. JORDAN was amazing in attending to all details; including the cake and candles. He didn’t miss a beat when it came to our orders - wine, appetizers, entrees - on a very busy Saturday evening. We can’t thank him enough for helping to make it an enjoyable evening. We’ll be back again soon!

Very busy Saturday evening. Kitchen was not able to keep up. Food came out cold or dry from sitting under heating lamp. Server and Manager very gracious about delay. Still would go back, but maybe on a different night when not as busy.

When I arrived I was sitting outside. It took a long while before a service person came over. I actually had to get his attn from the table beside me after I had been there for 15 minutes or more. He was attentive after that.

A very disappointing experience. My burger was over cooked and so salty it was barely edible. My husbands pasta was good but wasn’t even served with a bread of any sort. The waiter was marginally polite and was overly abrupt when my husband asked for a refill on his wine before his first glass was empty. We won’t be returning.

We were here to celebrate a birthday- which was put in the open table reservation. The staff did not acknowledge it was for a birthday which was disappointing. The food and wine was delicious- their happy hour is a great deal. But the service was very slow. It took awhile to get a drink but the food came out quickly.

Extremely understaffed and confused employees. Our host walked us around the restaurant looking for our table because our table for 7 was not yet bused. We had to return to the host stand and wait.

The calamari was recommended. It should be removed from the menu. It’s overly breaded to the point if being a funnel cake and it has a sweet honey type drizzle that makes it a freak show instead of calamari.

The flank steak was over cooked on three of our meals.

We had to retrieve napkins and silverware from adjacent tables because our server kept returning to the table empty handed.

Great design, horrible food and horrible execution.

Service was poor which was unusual for this place. Our waitress was training another at the time. Refills on drinks weren’t offered. Food was very good. A shrimp and pasta special was probably the best entree I’ve ever had there, and we eat there a lot!

This was my second time at Cooper's hawk, but the first to Reston. The food was fantastic and you can't beat the wine experience. The pairings were sensational and a great value. Even though I'm not local to one, I'm contemplating on joining the club and putting this into my regular cadence for business dinners.

Wonderful food and service. When calling for a reservation, tho, we were told that they could not accommodate 4 people at our requested time. So the two of us decided to leave others at home and enjoy the experience together. When we arrived we were seated at a table for four with many other open tables around us. It just seemed odd even knowing that it could have been a way to stagger the kitchen a bit. But with so many tables open and room at our own, neither us or the pleasant waiter could figure out why we couldn't include our full original party especially when upon leaving the whole restaurant was full at all tables. They obviously can handle a full house later into service so why not two more people earlier in service?

Excellent food, excellent service, very attentive. I am fully aware that it's a winery restaurant, but we didn't like the constant 'suggestion' of selection of wines. My friends and I wanted to have a wonderful dinner in a wonderful restaurant, which was accomplished but the persistent suggestion of wines over a short period of time became an annoyance. We will still go back because the food and service was that good.

This restaurant is always good. This is our favorite restaurant. The one in Ashburn is also great.
The food is a little expensive, but worth it. It's high quality. The wine is wonderful, They let you try it before you order it. You can't do that anywhere else. Happy Hour is good. Best in the area.

Service was awesome. The food was delicious as always. One of these days I will get dessert but always full after meal. OMG the Tuscan soup? I think that is what it was called but it was the best. I loved all the pieces of tomatoes in it. I could take a gallon of that home with me!
Thank you
