Good food and wine as always delicious. They were very busy as always but it took a little longer to get our food this time but we were abundantly compensated with free drinks and a coupon for a free meal. Really wasn’t necessary but extremely appreciated.

We ordered the lobster bisque as our starter, what an amazing soup, full of flavor and deliciousness! Our entrees were the Bourbon Glazed Pork Chop, nothing short of fantastic! And, the Salmon Piccada, both fantastic as well, but I enjoyed the pork chop more!

Food was good for 4 of 6 meals. Hubbies filet medallions were dry. Potatoes were under cooked and barely warm. Future son in laws fried chicken sandwich was very dry and over breaded. He didn't even eat 1/2 of it. Drink reorders were not asked about, but the water was refilled. Their were long lapses of time between visits from the server. Overall the meal took just short of 2 hours. That's a bit too long. I'm not sure but perhaps they were under staffed?

This is a great place to have dinner. The noise level is very loud and difficult to have a quiet conversation.

Cooper’s Hawk never disappoints. Food and drinks were great! Our wonderful waitress last night was one of the best. She was so nice and attentive. Already looking forward to going back.

We just love Cooper’s Hawk! Every time we go the food and service is consistently great. Always love trying some new wines.
We went for my birthday this visit and they brought me a complimentary dessert of truffles along with a wine pairing taste. YUM!

Our server Brian was knowledgable and helpful for us in our decisions. My guest had “The Prime” sandwich which was phenomenal! I enjoyed a shrimp salad from the “life balance” (healthy & delicious menu)...it doesn’t get much better than that!! [Check out their “Life Balance” menu, if you haven’t done so before.]

We had lunch on the patio and it was a nice experience. It was quiet enough to have a conversation with friends. The lunch menu is a nice sampling of the full dinner menu.

Risotto was not a risotto by any means. Chicken was dry and rice was bland. Not worth the money to have rice with peas and corn with dry chicken. Service and wine was great.

Made reservations for me and wife's 2yr anniversary, we were greeted as soon as we walked through the door. The place was not too busy, it was perfect. The tasting was awesome, the bartender convinced us to become members, she was so nice by the way. The food and service was outstanding. This was our second time dining here and will definitely continue coming.

The food is always outstanding and this time was no exception. The only reason I rated as I did was our waiter. He disappeared for long periods of time, had to constantly ask for our water to be refilled, our bill was not correct,a handful of other strange things that are not consistent with the normal experience at this restaurant.

I love Cooper's Hawk and usually go to Burr Ridge but was meeting friends who live in Bartlett. Server was polite and nice but didn't seem fully trained. My husband's surf and turf was not very flavorful which is really unusual; we always love the food. Overall it was okay but glad it wasn't my first experience with Cooper's.

Had a nice dinner there Sat. pm to celebrate our 51st wedding anniversary. We have been to Cooper's Hawk before and the food is always delicious. You never feel like they are rushing you through your meal to turn over your table so we have been able to enjoy a leisurely dinner. Like the fact you can sample a generous pour of a wine you are wanting to try. Wonderful way to expand your wine palette. The noise level is always energetic....it bounces off all the hard surfaces and it can at times be difficult for us to carry on conversation. Service is usually outstanding but this time our waiter wasn't as good or as personable. He wasn't very familiar with the menu. We usually go to your South Barrington or St Charles locations and truly enjoy our experiences and the food and wine.

We had a U shaped booth by the kitchen wall and it was great! Noise level was not as loud as in the center of the restaurant. Great people watching too.

Food and service were both exceptional!! Only downside is that it’s very noisy. It was hard to hold a conversation. I might attribute that to the high ceilings. We usually sit in the bar area where it’s quieter, but this time we were in the restaurant. The food is phenomenal here!!

Basically empty dining room and, without asking, we were seated in the bar with more noise than expected for a ladies’ lunch.
Food was good nonetheless.

Went on a dinner date with two girlfriends. We started off wine tasting and had Dawn. All I can say is WOW! Dawn was a total sweet heart and was the best tasting attendant I’ve ever had. We then got to sit down and had Bridgett as a waitress. She was amazing as well. Our calamari didn’t appear crunchy or very warm, so she easily took it back with no hesitation. She was so in top of things! Thank you to both Dawn and Bridgett for a great experience :)

I love Cooper’s Hawk. However this time they were out of appetizers and Blanc de Blanc wine on a Tuesday. Thought it was strange. To add to that our soup salad and Mac and cheese took an extremely long time. Manager apologized but we had to ask about delay to even get apology. Think something could have been done to better accommodate us.

Food and service were great. We were seated outside. The noise level inside was a bit much. Hard to hear sometimes. I do like the St Charles. I can’t wait until the Downers Grove restaurant is opened. It’s close to my home.

We always look forward to our monthly visits here and our tastings, but this time we were not impressed at all with our tasting pourer...she was very inattentive and told us absolutely NOTHING about the wines we were drinking and did not change out our glasses between white and red wines. Very disappointed. We brought a friend and we were hoping for a better experience for her. Our waiter was great and the food was delicious, but I think the training process for the tasting pourers needs to be greatly improved.

This was our second visit. Like the first, we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. With reservations (recommended) waited just a few minutes for our table. The menu gave us lots of choices. The fish and steak were cooked perfectly. And you can't go to Cooper's Hawk and not try the wine selections.

This location continues to suffer from poor service. Server was inexperienced and it showed. He was trying hard, but lots of missteps. No offer of bread or getting a bottle of wine we tasted. Forgot to ask about salad dressing so ours came undressed. He scrambled to get the dressing and there was what I think/hope was a noodle in my dressing cup. My entree was sold out but didn't find out until 15 minutes in, so everyone's meal was delayed. I have had nothing but service misses here, so we wont be back. This is about the 4th or 5th visit, no more.
