Nice place for a good meal on the patio. Great option if you are Reston but don’t want to deal with the Town Center.

Always a good time at Cooper's Hawk! Food was slow coming out this time, which isn't normally the case, even on a busy Friday evening, but our waiter was great, the food was delicious, and the wine was wonderful.

Pleasant friendly service, wine was surprisingly good for the price, appetizers were great especially the ahi tuna being one of the best I’ve had, entrees were decent, very nice dessert options. You get a lot of quality food and drink for the price so it’s worth checking out, will definitely be back

I always have problems with slow service at this location. Food was good with large quantities but we waited at least thirty minutes after we were done for the waitress to take our dessert order. Four of our party had opted for restaurant week menus that included dessert. It was at least another thirty minutes before we got our dessert to go, plus they were out of the chocolate cake. Then it took a while to get our check. The restaurant is very noisy but we could at last here each other towards the end as most of the tables around us had left. I don’t understand the poor service. I even asked a manager several times about getting our desserts.

Did not realize that it was "restaurant week" in Reston when I booked. The restaurant was crowded and diners were loud. They had a fixed price menu available which was quite reasonable. The appetizer (Southwest egg rolls) was excellent and the serving very generous. I should have stopped there. The entre gnochi with pancetta, mushrooms, and parmasan was overly salty and the gnochi were chewey. Dessert (creme brule) was acceptable, but nothing special. Wines were good, although the salty entre affected the enjoyment of the chardonay. I see lots of potential for good dining and excellent wine at this restaurant. Just not during restaurant week.

We have gone here several times without issues. This past time the service was very slow, waiter hard to hear and our appetizer cold. Diner was great but took forever.

We asked to sit outside which may have been a mistake. The service seemed slow on Saturday night. We’re not quite certain if it was the norm for a Saturday night but definitely a bit slower than usual. The food seemed alright, delicious but perhaps impacted by the wait staff having a little too much on their hands there by causing things to wait. The food was still tasty but not quite the norm we’ve come to expect at Cooper’s Hawk.

Excellent service! Briea? Gave us an excellent and enjoyable wine tasting at the wine bar. Her energy and charisma were a great start to a wonderful evening. Our server was prompt, professional, and very funny. Bisque and Calamari were both superb. My date loved her mojito. Will definitely be back and thank you for showing us a wonderful evening

We love Cooper's Hawk and are wine club members there. I do wish their selection of menu wines would change periodically. As club members, we're able to get a class of whatever wine is offered that month, but we'd be able to do that in a tasting so I'd love to order my flight selection with new wines to try. The food is always wonderful and our server last time was excellent, as usual. My only complaint is the noise level is quite loud.

Reasonable prices and good food. Did not find menu to be culinarily exotic. There were 5 in our party and as a business group it worked well to cover the diversity of the group.

We were a party of five seated at a booth. For a business lunch, it was too confining and uncomfortable.

A fun place to go...wine tastings are extremely good and they always have a monthly featured red and white wine. The food menu is expansive and the quality is very good. A great get together spot!

We were greeted pleasantly upon arrival. We set outside and the atmosphere was nice.

Our food took way too long. The Brussel sprouts appetizer arrived cold. The server apologized and said that it went to the wrong table. What does that mean? Did it sit there until someone realized it didn’t belong?

Our main courses arrived some time after the appetizer and were barely warm. I left most of my food. Very disappointing lunch at a high cost.

The Reston location was generally a disappointment. I have been to a number of Cooper's Hawk Restaurants in and around Chicago and I was looking forward to visiting our local reston location. However, the Reston location does not compare in terms of layout, ambiance and service. The restaurant has several rooms jammed with tables with lots of servers and helps constantly on the move. Many tables, and almost all tables for six or more, are in high traffic areas. The whole set up takes away from the ambiance as does the freezing temperature of the restaurant and the inability of anyone to fix the issue. More importantly, the service was poor: drinks and food took a long time to appear, our waitress disappeared for long periods of time, and our meals came out at different times with 5-10 between one arriving and then another arriving. They can and should do better.
