As usual the food was very good. However, service was very slow, partially due to a slow kitchen, I think. We were comped a free dessert due to the length of time it took to get our meals. We sat outside - the patio is mostly covered and shielded from the direct sun, but the noise level from the nearby road was very loud and distracting - not sure if any sort of noise barrier is possible, but it is needed.

Cooper's Hawk never disappoints. The food and service is consistently good with social distancing in place and pleasant ambiance. Great wine - and the wine club is a great value.

Good as always was not notch. The service was okay and I im understanding since maybe there aren’t enough servers. I was very disappointed in the end as I requested it was a birthday and gave the name. We never got the dessert even after I went to the front and gave a reminder.

The wine tasting experience was excellent.

When we moved into the dining room, we were seated at a booth near the kitchen. Something in the kitchen had been burnt, and the burnt/smoky smell lingered. Our waiter was very slow and non-attentive.

Great food. Safe, outdoor environment. Wait staff was fairly unattentive which was unusual based on other visits to this restaurant.

Good, consistent food. Service is always excellent. Nice that there is something for everyone, and so many allergen friendly choices....particularly like their outdoor seating area as well.

The staff were friendly and helpful. The server was excellent. The food was tasty. Good variety of excellent wines. I had the Caesar side salad, Asian soy ginger glazed Salmon, key lime pie for dessert. My friend had short rib risotto and house side salad. Everything was perfect even the sweet red wine

Made a reservation on Saturday at 2:45. The restaurant was beautifully appointed with all types of wine! As soon as you walk in you are greeted by multiple people and we were seated immediately. The service was great given the time of day and amount of people. I was offered a complimentary taste of red wine, and ended up ordering a flight of delicious specialty bubbles. The pretzel bread..amazing..brussels sprouts...just ok...eggrolls...delicious! The bacon wrapped shrimp were ordered twice, as they were THAT good! I opted for a steak and shrimp combo with mized veggies. The steak was meh, but for the price, I have ZERO complaints. I would definitely come back to try more wine and food options!

The server was not attentive. And, the food was not up to par.

Two bottles of wine requested were replaced unbeknownst to us until we returned home. Service was rushed and neither helpful nor knowledgeable of the wine selection.

Coopers Hawk may not be the highest rated restaurant in NOVA, but it is a really good spot for delicious, fairly priced food. The restaurant itself is fairly typical, but they do a great job on the food and our waiter Austin, was excellent. I started with a shaved Brussels sprouts salad in balsamic- it was excellent. As were my wife’s short ribs and my surf and turf. Mine consisted of a bourbon pork chop and a pistachio crusted grouper, both were fantastic. Couple that with a good waiter who didn’t rush us thru our meal and you have an enjoyable, relaxing evening. Definitely recommend dining here.

Love the wine! For the most part, the food was good. I had the grilled cheese and the cheese tasted and felt like a Kraft single, which was not great. The service was also quite slow. However, even with those "issues" we will definitely be back.

Outdoor dining, 59°, windy, 15 minutes to get a server, ours was busy with a large party (we had reservations for over a week)-not our problem-poor managing of reservation-host was making excuses, another server in the adjacent section took great care of us (Jojo was wonderful!) We left as soon as we finished our meal. Oh, a squirrel jumped onto the seat next to us-the restaurant should discourage the feeding of wildlife-unsanitary while eating.

This wasn't my first experience with poor service from wait staff. An office happy hour, in non-COVID times, had trouble being attended to with many of us guests taking turns going in and tracking down our server-for refills, utensils/napkins, to order coffee/dessert.

Nice place to go if you're prepared to be ignored. It seems if you're a wine member, you get better treatment.

The service started out well but our orders were mixed up and, although we asked for separate checks, we were given one bill. Around that point, our server disappeared. Another server came over and straightened things out
