We had a great experience! We reserved a spot on their outdoor patio but their heaters were broke so they set us inside but away from all the other customers. Our waiter was very nice, wore his mask properly the whole time, and went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. As always we were very impressed with the food and drinks we ordered. It was my husband’s birthday. They brought out birthday truffles which were absolutely scrumptious!

Been to Cooper's Hawk many times and I was very disappointed this time. I had made the reservation a week in advance, responded to a confirmation call and even called back to make a special request as this was my husband's 65th birthday celebration. I realize COVID has certain limitations but with only 3 tables of 6 available (I guess) and being this was a special day, we were seated adjacent to the bathrooms and server station. I spent most of the night wearing a coat. The other two tables of six were filled with appeared to be business folks and just there for well, not a "special" dinner. Despite my requests, I was given no other option for seating. My husband made the best of it though, he said well, you just have to get up and turn around if you need to go to the bathroom. I will probably try the sister facility now in Ashland.

The out door area is so nice, it will be sad when the winter months come and it closes. Though it was a bit chilly outside the server brought over a heater which made it very comfortable. As usual the food was great and so was the wine. One of my favorite restaurants to frequent.

I have to say this mask thing has gotten out of hand. We had a nice dinner then stopped at the wine bar to pick up multiple bottles of wine. There were several people at the bar tasting wines with no masks. However since we weren’t drinking, We were forced to wear a mask surrounded by those without. I didn’t realize covid didn’t go after those who drink! Ridiculous!

As always, Cooper's Hawk provided an awesome experience. I was especially pleased since it was my sister's first visit. Chris was our server and was absolutely phenomenal. Thanks again for another great experience.

Very enjoyable! I generally avoid franchise places with so many options in DC, but this was a pleasant surprise. They have great seating, well spaced out both indoor and out. Highly recommended.

We’re regulars and members at Cooper’s Hawk and normally LOVE their food, but I’ll pass on turkey/Thanksgiving dinner in the future. It’s not my favorite meal but I was looking forward to it. However the dressing was 95% dry bread, hardly any onions or celery (dry!) and the mashed potatoes and gravy were not good. Yes I’m spoiled to great home cooking but I expected more from my Cooper’s Hawk. I should’ve ordered something else.

Unfortunately, at the minute my husband wasn’t able to be in-town for Thanksgiving. Despite my disappointment, my outdoor dining experience was wonderful. Lily W. took very good care of me from the moment she greeted at my table. The Napa Chicken salad, iced tea and Pinot Noir and chocolate cake made me happy. Thanks for making my Thanksgiving meal memorable!

We ate outside, and the noise level was minimal. I have eaten inside several times, and it is very loud. One of the reasons I picked this restaurant is it's outdoor dining space with heaters. Turned out the heaters were unnecessary as it was a beautiful almost 70-degree day. Had the scallops with brussels sprouts slaw, and they were probably the best scallops I've ever had. My dining companion had shrimp and scallops with risotto, which she said was excellent. All in all a real treat for Thanksgiving Day.

We were very well looked after for our Thanksgiving lunch. Excellent food as always, especially the turkey dinner (3 courses). Thank you to the Coopers Hawk team for accommodating our table of 5 and working the holiday.

Another great experience, we loved it. 3 of us tried something new and the entrees were amazing. The wine is always great; my daughter an wife both had wine flights and tried a variety. We have some new favorites and it was a great anniversary dinner.

Ate outside on a warmish evening. Heating banks were more than adequate—temperature was quite comfortable. Jambalaya was good; chicken madeira was also very nice.

We finally made it to the area early enough to have dinner out. My husband found this gem and I agreed immediately(you had me at Brussels sprouts ;) ) this was the best dinner I’ve had in a long while. Cocktails were a nice start and the barrel wine was delicious. I opted for a variety of appetizers. The Brussels did not disappoint. The ahi sashimi was fresh, with variable texture components added for excellent mouthfeel, just spicy enough to pace your enjoyment. Getting my vegetable allotment is important to me so I had a side of broccolini and a wedge salad for some unctuous delight. My husband had a cup of the seafood bisque and jambalaya. He shared in all my adventure, so don’t worry we had room for the salted caramel creme brûlée. Service was exemplary. The atmosphere was energetic but not overly loud, so we could talk. Could not recommend more.

Be sure to make a reservation via Open Table. There isn't much room for walk-ins in the bar area.

There was a slight mix-up (totally on me). The staff was more than accommodating. Our server was phenomenal. They practiced an almost extreme level of social distancing, which was great! The food and wine were both fantastic! I drove from DC and it was well worth the ride. I will absolutely be back.
