Excellent food and service. Portions are generous and the selection of wine is outstanding. Servers are very good at suggesting wines to go with your meal and will even give you tasters based on your preferences to zoom in on what you really like.

Great restaurant, I've been a handful of times. This was my first time dining outdoors on the patio and I was very unimpressed. Food was great, but service and everything else was rather neglected. It took about 15 minutes to get our glass of water, and we finished an entire bottle of wine before the entree even came out. I would dine again, but indoors.

I came in for Lunch with my friends for my birthday and had a great time! From the very beginning we were walked to our table by one of the ladies at the front desk and she told us a little about the wines since it was our first time, even offered to have a taste brought to us! So sweet. Our server was Kevin and he was fabulous, everything came out perfect and coursed. Offered more cocktails and cleared everything we weren’t using anymore, perfect manicuring as we could see he did with all of his other tables! The food was delicious as well but the service from the whole team made our experience even better! Thank you!!!

I love this restaurant chain. My food was delicious and the wine was great. Our server was a bit questionable but regardless it didn't ruin my experience. I came for the great food and atmosphere.

Ambiance is wonderful. We were seated outside which was very pleasant and afforded easy conversation. Service was prompt but unobtrusive. Portions are generous and well presented. The fish and chips is surprisingly delicious as is the crab and lobster bisque.

The food was excellent...when we finally got it. The lunch was 50 mins in coming and I had to catch a flight. The server was awesome. I gave here my CC ahead of the food so we could be ready to eat and run. The manager came over and apologized profusely for the delay and fully covered our meals. Very nice gesture and it was greatly appreciated. Again, the food are our server were excellent.

We had a work function and a pretty large party. The service was excellent and the entire party was happy with their food.
This place hits a home run every time.
If you have a lunch engagement I would highly recommend Coopers Hawk.
They get it!

We had an extraordinary dining experience at Cooper's Hawk on a fairly quiet Sunday evening. Perfect place for adults -- not sure why parents would bring infants and small children to this venue? During our appetizer phase, calamari and the bacon & cheese plate, both amazing, we also were given tastings of a few of the reds we were contemplating ordering a bottle of for the evening. Our waiter was extremely experienced in serving in the dynamic environment - lots of moving parts, gracious, and very kind, even while picking up the numerous pieces of a broken glass - oops! Amongst the group of five, the caesar and wedge salads, trio of filet mignon, and scallops were all excellent! Having seen the selection of desserts on the way in, we really tried to save room, but were unsuccessful! Next time wine and something chocolate! A great evening was had by all!

Kevin was our server and he was great. We had some gluten sensitive people in our group and they had a separate menu for that!! Everyone was very happy to see that! It was a great meal, the non wine drinks aren’t great but otherwise highly recommend!

The evening started out with no silverware on our table. They finally brought out the bread which was basically enough for one person and we had five at our table. Service was very slow. The bartender was unable to make a Singapore sling. My wife was served the wrong dinner. In my opinion there were some major issues with the kitchen and in their organization. We had been there before without any issues But tonight was not a good experience. Not sure if we will be back.

We are wine club members and love the food, but the service has gone down considerably over the past couple of months at both Reston and Ashburn locations.

Didn’t see a waiter for 15 minutes after sitting down. Then, order drinks and didn’t see them for another 15 minutes. We asked for bread but never got it. Manager gave us a free app, but this caused us to miss our movie.

Appetizers and drinks with friends went better than planned. Naz (I hope I got that right) was very patient and attentive to the individual needs of a group of eight. Food and wine was excellent. Always happy to have visited Cooper's Hawk.

A gem of a find in Northern Virginia. The wines of their own winery are excellent. I would say they are better than most of the ones you get at Virginia’s many wineries. The food is very tasty and fresh, particularly the seafood. Our waiter was extremely courteous and knowledgeable. Joining the Cooper’s Hawk Wine membership is a great deal any which way you look at it. We signed up for 2 wines a month at store pick-up. The charge is around $36.95 as far as I remember. And you get a free wine bottle. Plus many other benefits of membership including exclusive discounts.

Meh - the food was good - I had shrimp and scallop risotto and it was tasty and full of fresh veggies, but not the creamy risotto I was expecting. Warm pretzel bread at the table would be better with a liberal amount of SALTED butter. Service was distracted and we had to ask for drink refills multiple times. All in all the food and ambiance are good but my entree was $32 - total check table of 4 $140 - and that's more than I want to spend for "so-so" service and "good" food for lunch.

We've been to Coopers Hawk before. They have an interesting menu and the food is always good. What pulls my rating down is that the service is lethargic.

Our waitress was very pleasant and was usually "available"; so I suspect that the long waits for beverages & food were due more to getting items from either the bar or getting food out of the kitchen,

We had a bad experience with our waiter. He seemed new and there was no manager that was shadowing him to make sure things were going well. We waited and waited....sigh. I am a member of their wine club and we had a great time even though our meal took over 3 hours. The first hour we were just waiting to order. We tipped our waiter anyway, because we could see he was floundering but trying. I do wish they had put him on the floor with a manager to oversee him.

Indifferent, very slow service. Also, there were 5 or 6 empty tables around us with dirty dishes on them for extended periods of time. Server asked us to help him pick up dishes on our table. Generally unfriendly, aloof staff. Food is really great, but this place is not a pleasant experience.

The Customer service is great. The kitchen continues to create delays due to the lack of care used when preparing, stocking meat on the line "crowd pleasers", and plating standard food with some level of care. Front of the house Management and servers are absolutely amazing; however, their day becomes a bit complicated when the kitchen falls short.

Hadn't dined in a while since they added new items to their menu and all I can say is yum! The Sweet and Crunchy Shrimp were the best shrimp I have had - ever! You must use the dipping sauces, especially the Cashew Dip. The Chopped Devil Egg and Toast was also delicious. We ordered the Potato Crusted Scallops and the Gnocchi with Butternut Squash and they did not disappoint. The August wine, Torrontes, was slightly dry, but fruity and clean. All I can say is well done Cooper's Hawk - way to stay up on your game!

In a word... Hectic. The waiter was knowledgeable but seemed too busy . It took 3trips to get a table of four napkins with silverware. The drinks came out slow and the food was too fast.

Food & wine was great! We live in Vienna & normally drive to Ashburn location. Tonight, we decided to try Reston & we’re so glad we did! Our server, Naz, provided excellent recommendations that made our night one to remember! She was outstanding, attentive & thoughtful. Great job, Team Reston!

Great food, great wine, and great atmosphere. Could be as casual or as formal an experience as you want it to be. We went for a date night and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. If you're a red wine fan, try their Barrel Reserve Red. Quite lovely.

We have visited Cooper’s Hawk before with slightly better experience. This time the food was over cooked and the side salad ordered with dressing on the side simply had no dressing. The service was not at all attentive, didn’t listen and ignored us after we declined the wine membership. Won’t return any time soon
