Had an early dinner so it wasn't too crowded in the window area yet. Food was delicious as always and service was great. It was pretty cold when we first sat down, but when we mentioned the temperature to the waiter he quickly adjusted it so it warmed up. Overall another great experience at Cooper's Hawk.

First time dining here. Great service, great space, and enjoyable (reasonably-priced) wine flight tastings --- but very mediocre food. The pistachio-encrusted grouper was especially disappointing (soggy, greasy mush). Looks like we'll be sticking with the local NoVA chain of Great American restaurants for our fish dishes (always well-prepared and tasty). Cooper's Hawk has a huge menu (and perhaps that's part of the problem). We'll try them again - and hope for a better experience on the food front.

Pariss was exceptional! He guided us through the menu and had a wonderful sense of humor (which resonated very well with my enthusiastic group). A portion of my group did a wine tasting prior to dinner and Brian saved their day! (apparently the original wine pourer wasn’t able to answer some of their questions so Brian was brought it and my friends said he hit a grand slam). The food and wine were sublime. Definitely recommend Coopers Hawk for special/celebratory occasions. Thank you for a memorable experience!

My reservation was there yet hostess sat us at wrong table. I run a lunch time group of ladies and as a result a new member could not find us. The waiter for the table was not accommodating whatsoever. We had to keep chasing him for service.

We had a mini reunion of friends for lunch on a weekday. The waiter was very accommodating for various food needs, gave good reviews of the food and wine. Was spot-on for our wine selection. The menu had many twists on favorite lunch meals which made it desirable to return. The food was very fresh and dessert looked like it had just been handmade right for our order. All delicious. Wish I had indeed done the Wine Club as he had suggested.

Been here twice and the food is always very good. Love the menu and I have yet to be disappointed with anything on the menu. Service is definitely lacking though, each time we've visited there have been a few service issues. First visit a server accidentally broke a glass at our table on my friend's plate, and everyone understands that accidents happen, but no manager touched the table, no food was remade, serious mis-step in service. Our last visit was just as impressive concerning the menu selections just marred by unattentive and slow service.

The setup of the restaurant is attractive and the ambience is fine. Our reservations were honored right on time. We were a little early, but free tastings of two wines were provided while we waited. The appetizers we had were very large, enough for more than two people. Two of our party ordered barramundi, and the fish arrived a bit overcooked; they weren't bad, but they could have been better.

Service was not good that evening. Appetizers came, but we had to wait for silverware. Wine decanter came but had to wait for the wine. Not a great experience as we were treating friends from Canada.

Jonathon is over the top attentive and hilarious and we try to sit at his table for service. The overall ambiance is electric and the buzz is contagious..we are a small group of 4 ladies who meet monthly and can’t imagine being anywhere else. The wine is delicious and the apps are soooo good. We love the vibe and the fact that they allow happy hour in the dining room..It’s better than therapy!

My fiancé and I celebrated our anniversary at Cooper Hawk, and I plan to make this a regular date night. Our server, Jeff, was fabulous and gave us great wine and dinner suggestions, plus champagne and truffles on the house to finish our evening. We look forward to many more date nights at Cooper Hawk!

Everything was superb, the greeting, food, service, just fantastic! I should emphasize the food was outstanding! I mentioned to the waiter that I had brought my son there for his birthday (25th), and he had the kitchen fix a little something for him-on the house, which was over the top service!

We will return and I definitely recommend Cooper's Hawk in Reston, VA!

Thank you for a great experience Cooper's Hawk!

Unfortunately, this was my worse dinning experience with this restaurant. I previously dined at the Indian, Illinois, & Wisconsin locations & had a terrific over all experience. The service at Reston, VA was poor, several orders were wrong or did not arrive timely, or overcooked. I will not dine at this location again.

The food was just not tasty or really good. The wine is great and the drinks are great. The restaurant is trying to be too many things to all customers. It needs to focus. Management needs to really follow on what is going on. We were on the patio and many customers had to change chairs because they were dirty. Equipment was in the area and it was just not a really great scene. The servers were all prompt and courteous. We received the bread late because it was being made but it was cold when served. It tasted like someone has decided to cheapen the ingredients. Its a great wine bar but has a long way to go on the food menu.

This was our first visit for dining at Cooper's Hawk. The food was very good! The service however was not up to par to the food. Our server finally came to our table after we had been seated at least 6 minutes. He said he would bring us water while we decided on wine. We ordered wine ( and entree) after another 8 minutes, and when he brought us bread, we had to get our own silverware from another table. We did not see him again until after we had had our meal about 10 minutes. I had to flag him down to ask for another glass of wine; he was quick to gather my husband's plate, and as soon as I finished my last bite of food, he gathered mine. He literally threw the dessert menu on the table and then we did not seee him agian, until we had to flag him down for the check. Additionally, we had noted that it was a birthday celebration, and there no menton of that.

Overall, the food was very good, but I have to say the service needs work.
