Great place, tough to get into this location therefore it is always busy and loud. Overall the service was great. the folks at the tasting table were very educated and patient with some of the people in our party there do not drink a lot of different wines. We had a great time and wonderful meal.

My guests enjoyed the flat breads they ordered. My hamburger was done properly and was tasty. Wait staff was insufferable, one under training, but neither could remember we wanted lemons in our water and they both lacked enthusiasm.

We were seated in the PDR and it was VERY cold. I asked that they make it warmer and I was told by the server that it wasn't really cold, that it was just drafty. No. It was cold.

Food was ok. The server, Ian, was not very professional. He was very loud at the table and seemed annoyed most of our visit. Additionally, he just never seemed on pace with our service cues; when to take our order, refill beverages, clear, drop the check, etc.

This was our first visit to the restaurant and we were impressed with the variety offered in wine and the food. We were more impressed with the quality of the dishes from the appetizers to the entrees and on to dessert. Everything was delicious and the service was very attentive. My wife and I definitely will be back.

We were a party of 3, first people in dining room. Waitress not very attuned to customers needs, slow taking orders , we waited 15 minutes for the bread to be brought to the table and 45 minutes for a simple order of Chopped Salad, a burger and a fish sandwich. Waitress returned to ask is everything ok when we had no food served yet. Salad didn’t fill a small bowl, burger ok, fish sandwich had about a drop of siracha mayo and not even a full slice of avocado. Management did give us coupons for a free dinner and was very apologetic, so I am willing to return and try them again. Management very customer service oriented and took full responsibility.

Coopers Hawk is always a good solid choice for a meal and some wine. The wines are generally pretty good and the food is done well. The service at this location has been very good, we enjoyed meeting our server Wes on this night,

Have eaten here several times and ordered the same meal with no issue. ‘This time my meal was burnt, missing the sauce that comes with and the potatoes were un normally dry. Not sure what happened. Perhaps kitchen was backed up as meals took abnormally long to be delivered by like 30 minutes. Waiter was wonderful.

We brought a group of 8 to Coopershawk for their first time. Our meal was good but not as good as typical. The salmon special was over cooked for all three of us that ordered it. Two steak dishes were tough. Appetizers and short ribs were spot on. While we will return due to prior great meals there, some of our guests were not overly impressed.

This was our second visit to your restaurant. The first last spring for lunch while visiting our son who lives in Reston. Traveled an hour and forty-five minutes from McSherrystown Pa. for an awesome dinner and weekend in Virginia on 2/15/19.

We had an absolutely fabulous dinner on Valentine's Day. The food was amazing! If you like Calamari you absolutely must try their Calamari appetizer. We thought it was easily the best we've ever had. Different, but delicious and plentiful. The service was outstanding, friendly and not rushed but attentive. We will absolutely be back.

We have been to Cooper's Hawk several times before. The service is always good, but was especially enjoyable on this visit. The food, however, was not as good. We both got the the Valentine's special filet and lobster. Both were flavorful but the lobster was undercooked (translucent) and the filet was uncharacteristically tough. The experience was good and this won't deter us from going back, but the food was not their best.

First time eating there, the restaurant was beautiful lots of wine options. When the server approached us he was very polite he asked if we are first timers, we had told him yes. He didn’t bother telling us things about the restaurant like there’s a shop we were tasting serval wines and then he took the wine list when we ordered our food. Overall it was great.

Service was very slow. Server also lost (or gave to someone else) my wine club card. My meal-size salad was extremely small and ingredients listed on menu were hard to find or taste. It was also hard to find a parking space. Would not recommend.

I have now tried this place 3 times. I really wanted to like it. Too much (everything). The menu is too long (If they would do a limited number of things really well and it would be better). The servers are inconsistent (mostly good, but recent visit - not so much). It is noisy. Food is just OK. I can see where happy hour crowd would like it, but for a nice meal, there are a lot better options elsewhere.

I don’t normally write a review, I just submit the stars. But our server Wes deserves a special shout-out. One of my friends I was dining with is a quadriplegic, and also has difficulty speaking. I’ve dined out with her before, and though I’m sure the servers were well-meaning, they defer to her husband and largely ignore her. Wes was such a gentleman, AND a top-notch server. He gave every menu to her, directed his speech about specials to her as well as the other guests, and set all her food in front of her. She was splitting her dinner with her husband—most servers would’ve given the dinner to her husband knowing he would have to feed my friend. Not Wes. He had the kitchen split the food to two plates and set hers in front of her. I’m accustomed to outstanding service at Cooper’s Hawk, but this goes above and beyond. Thank you Wes, for treating my friend with respect and kindness, as another human being.
