I’m a member and normally I enjoy the food and service. However, this last visit... 2 of the 4 of us had food that was way too salty. I let the server know this but her seemed not all that interested in correcting the problem. Also, the food took awhile to get and when they brought out the food only 2 of us got served. We had to wait 7 more minutes to get the rest of our dinners. The place was not busy. The server was adequate, usually we have better service.

Cool idea and location is great. It's too loud for an upscale restaurant which is what the prices and entire place seem to try an represent. Not enough sweet wine (moscato sweet) offerings for my liking.
Food is great. Prices are high. As long as I'm not paying I will continue to return.
Not at all good for first date conversations nor is it romantic.

I have always had amazing meals and service at Cooper's Hawk. This last time, though, I was surprised when the Ahi Tuna I had came out ice cold. I had it previously and it was freshly cooked and still warm. My husband's dinner was the Pan Roasted Barramundi which was amazing and as an appetizer we had Calamari which was also amazing.

The first time I went, I sat with Ronnie and he was great. I decided to bring my family on Sunday for a Mother’s Day. It took literally an hour for our appetizer to come, which the manager explained the order for lost and had to be remade. Our entrees the followed, and they were cold. Because I’ve seen how wonderful service can be here and how great the food is, I will return, just not for a special occasion.

We arrived a few minutes before our reservation time but were seated right away. The hostess asked if we'd eaten there before and when we said we had not she explained some unique options with the wine tastings. Our server, Blanca was knowledgeable, patient and personable! Our food arrived as requested and quite good. We didn't care for an item- no fault of the restaurant and it was immediately taken care of. We enjoyed 2 red wine flights and settled on a bottle of Pinot Noir. We LOVED the Candied Bacon & Artisan Cheeses tray. My husband ordered and devoured the wedge salad which was huge! I really loved the shaved brussel sprout salad. My son gobbled up the Southern Hot Chicken Sandwich. We even signed up for the wine club. I really can't wait to go back!

I felt as if the waitress was not attentive to us because we decided not to order entrees. My fiancé and I decided to order an appetizers and drinks because we already had dinner plans. She would make comments like “do you want another appetizer” or “I don’t want to fill you up with just carbs”. She also seemed annoyed that we asked for tastings and decided not to get those glasses. She made a comment that she added a glass to our bill and hope that we wanted to try it. The odd thing is that we ordered 4 drinks and an appetizer because that is what we wanted. It was not like we sat there and ordered one glass of wine and asked for complimentary bread. I have dine at this location several times before and never had an issue, so this experience slightly bothered me.

Outstanding customer service! From staff working the phones to management. Everyone is over the top pleasant and shows care towards the customers. The food is amazing and priced right. Several different environments to enjoy, including the gift shop, standing wine tasting bar, bar area and high top tables, dining room and outdoor seating. We visited on Mother's Day and every mom received a Rose or Carnation and a wine glass. Cooper's Hawk is now at the top of the list when dining out.

We stayed with the appetizers and just turned it into a tapas dinner. The appetizer dishes are so plentiful there almost no need to go to an entree unless you are really hungry. The meatballs were out of this world. They were by far the best I had in a meatball in some time. I would have to compare it to one of my favorite italian restaurants in NYC. The sauce was equally good served with grilled crostini bread. Crispy brussel sprouts served with a mint and cashew paste was an interesting vegetable dish that was surprisingly very good. The asian pork belly tostadas were delicious treat with a touch of saltiness and vegetables served on a crunchy shell. A downside for us was the Calamari which is served in a very thick and hard breading and sweet glaze that completely overpowers the Calamari. This is their style and so its very different from what we typically expect on fried calamari. The venue is quite loud throughout and so you have to speak up if you intend to carry a dinner conversation. But the staff is first rate from the valet service at the door to the hosts to the wait staff.

Everything was great except for our waitress. She was rude and short with us. I asked for a glass of pinot noir and received a glass of white. I would expect that a winery gives you the correct wine. Other than the awful waitress, the food and atmosphere was amazing. I would just recommend cleaning up the wait staff.

2 couples, Wednesday evening. 2 Appetizers Brussels sprouts very good. Calamari prepared Tempura Style, Excellent. Other couple had Barramundi (fish) Excellent. and Jambalaya- nicely spiced with tough, rubbery chicken. I had The Crab Cakes (2) over an inch thick and about 3 inches in diameter, served with Fries and Slaw. Wife had Short ribs, arrived with cold mashed potatoes, hard vegetables, and Luke warm meat. manager replaced meal and took off the bill. Replacement meal hot. My bill had the Calamari, Crab Cakes and Wine (Sauvignon Blanc) $79.85 including tax. Overall a nice place, but not conducive to conversation. the noise level was so high we couldn't identify the style of MUSAC playing.
