Wonderful time with friends passing through town. Wait crew didn't rush us even though it was 6 pm. I believe her name was Bria. (BREE). She was awesome. Thanks for great service. 4 of us. We got 2 Mexican shrimp apps, 2 prime rib sandwiches and 2 chicken sandwiches and 4 glasses of wine.
Thanks for the great evening

Not for a special occasion - but for a regular night out it’s ok. Hostess upset me off the bat with a crappy table - I asked for a large booth instead - was denied and watched one remain empty for our entire time there. Just had hoped for more for my 25th wedding anniversary!

We celebrated the 50th wedding anniversary with some friends and our meal experience was EXCEPTIONAL! We gave a Cooper’s Hawk gift certificate to our friends so our server, Matt, had 2 cards to “juggle”. Matt did very well and our friends were really impressed with the wine tastings, the meal, wine, service and “experience.”

Go in to any Cooper’s Hawk restaurant but this location is our favorite; it never disappoints and quite often we’re met with a very nice SURPRISE!

I always love coming into CH! Whether it’s for a special occasion or just a weekday evening, Cooper’s Hawk never fails to disappoint! Tonight we celebrated my mom’s birthday, and our server Olivia did above and beyond to make the whole experience wonderful. She was so attentive, without being intrusive, and made the whole dinner even better! And the food and wine was delicious as always! Can’t wait for another wonderful experience there again!

Love the soy glaze salmon and the restaurant although it’s very loud and it’s hard to have a conversation
They were also busy on a Thursday night so if you are looking for quiet, not the place to go. Food and drinks are great!

I always order the Short Rib Risotto. There seemed to be less meat in it than usual and the portion seemed smaller. Also, the pretzel bread seemed more dense than normal. We have been going monthly for years and this was the first time I noticed the differences. It was still very good though.

Used to love Coopers Hawk, and it had been a few months since our last visit. This time was underwhelming and quite disappointing. The food was eh at best. The wine was good, as always. Service was fine.
But what left us rushing through our meal and wine were the abundance of fruit flies circling our glasses and food. Have never experienced that at CHW before and am very disappointed in the issue they’re having (at least at that location).

Cooper's Hawk in St Charles has always been a place we can go to for any occasion, but also as a place where we know the service will be the best, the food will be outstanding, and the end result remains to be a great experience. I hope everyone gets the chance to visit Cooper's Hawk.

It’s always a great experience! The only suggestion would be to either give a dessert for people celebrating birthdays or don’t . What you serve now is very small and almost comical. If you notice the reactions of your guests I’m going to bet most people chuckle when they get it. It’s because of the size.
But everything is always exceptional. You only have a birthday once a year so it’s really only a suggestion and not something that’s of any big concern.

Our server was very nice about waiting for us to be ready. She even gave us a signal to use to let her know that we were ready. Even though we forgot for a long time to use the signal, she was very patient with us. Mostly the sound level was ok to converse, but it turned out there was a gentleman who was talking really loud next to us. Not much you can do but that is why I rated the noise level as I did. I did bring a friend who had not been to Cooper's Hawk before.

I treated my mom and brother for dinner and drinks. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Although the food was higher prices than I would normally spend money on, it was worth it. I hope to visit again when I come back into town for another visit.

Waitress was pushy in getting us to order and didn’t even ask if we were cooper hawk members. We asked to use our reward points and she didn’t. Was not a great visit. Will be only going to the Naperville location.

Coopers Hawk is usually very reliable good food, but on our Anniversary, we ended up with longer than usual wait times for food and one of the dishes was burned (visible burns on Gnocchi and Meat). Our server was excellent and took the burned food off our bill. Turns out they had a private event that night and the kitchen couldn’t keep up. However serving gnocchi with one side black is never acceptable. If it wasn’t for our server, the night would’ve been very disappointing.

Brussel sprout appetizer too salty and greasy. My fish and green beans too salty too. Would rather add salt if needed.
Family celebration dinner, but way too noisy. Priced okay for nice dining though. Thanks
