Our party enjoyed arriving at the upscale and exciting restaurant/winery. We appreciated a small sample of their wine in the winetasting area and that wet our appetites for dinner. We passed on the wine tasting for now. The four of us ordered different entree's but we started with the crab beneigh's and brussel sprout appetizers. Both were really good. the entrees we ordered were well prepared and very tasty. Unfortunately, a meat entrée came out with too much fat for the liking. This was immediately corrected by the polite waitress and manager, who took over personally to make sure the chief prepared a replacement dish correctly. All other entrees were tasty and well liked. Our waitress was was extremely efficient, informative, polite and fun. A Birthday dessert was presented to our birthday girl and this topped off our exceptional dining experience. We all look forward to returning.

I went to Cooper’s Hawk for date night. Honestly I don’t have a single complaint. We had a reservation we were seated upon our arrival. The appetizer, main dish & desert were all delicious. They are very accomadating with substations. The little chocolate covered treats we you come in the door are to die for we bought home a few different options so far the white choclate cover cheesecake pops are my fav. The staff is very professional, knowledgeable & sweet,

The food was wonderful and the Roasted Brussels Sprouts were fantastic. Our only complaint is that it was very loud and when we checked in for our reservation, we were not told we would receive a text when our table was ready. we were listening for our name to be called which we couldn't hear at all. A couple minutes after our reservation time, my husband went to inquire and was told they had called us about 10 minutes prior. We did get seated promptly then. I did not discover the text until later that evening.

First time there. Good enough that I made reservation for the wife's birthday the following week. NY strip was cooked perfectly and the two signature appetizers were delicious. This will be a regular place that we visit, and we signed up for the wine club because the club pinot noir was AWESOME!

A very tasteful and contemporary atmosphere. There are many quality wines to choose from and there's usually a tasting at the front counter. The wait staff is exceptionally friendly and personable but, being a new restaurant to the area, some may need a bit more training. The food is outstanding in both taste and presentation. Their menu is their own, so don't expect the same ol' same ol'. The dining area offers a clear window view into their kitchen. Overall, dining at Cooper's Hawk is more than just going out to eat. They make date nights just a little more special!

Appetizers were unique & delicious. Entrees we're very good but not exceptional. Reasonable prices. We had their Super Tuscan Italian red wine which was excellent. The service was outstanding. Our server, Tiana was very personable & knowledgeable. She gave us just the right amount of time & attention to allow for an enjoyable experience. Nice layout of the restaurant with a classy but relaxed atmosphere.

The food is amazing. This is our fourth visit and we have never had one complaint. This last meal I chose Blackened Tuna Ahi, cooked rare over a bed of rice and cabbage with a light wasabi sauce on the side and it was amazing. The menu is very diverse but not overwhelming in the choices. I especially like that the menu recommends a wine with each selection.

There were three of us for lunch. We all had soups and all were proclaimed as obviously homemade and delicious. I had the Tortilla soup and the others had Lobster/Clam Bisque and Tuscan Tomato. I tasted them all … wonderful.
One of the ladies had salad with shrimp which she said was more than enough and so fresh and well prepared. The other had a Caesar Salad with Chicken and she, also, said it was so fresh and wonderful tasting.
I had the Jambalaya and I have to say it was spot on. Just he right amount of spice and very authentic in taste.
We all purchased some of their Truffles to take home. The well enjoyed by all.
We didn't have wine, but I would think it would be a wine lover's paradise. We will certainly return for an evening visit.

We had an amazing dinner. The service was great and the drinks were interesting and strong and our dinner was delicious and well balanced. Beautiful decor inside the dining area and a large tasting area and wine shop. The dining room was a bit loud so some sound absorbtion devices could be added.
I would recommend this restaurant for any occasion.

This was my first time picking up my wine as a club member. The people behind the tasting area were wonderful, offering various tasting to ensure I wanted the two bottles I came to pick up. My husband and I went into the bar for lunch. Catherine, who served us at the bar was helpful, friendly and made our experience fun. The food was great! Can't wait to go back.

This was our third evening visit after two excellent dining experiences at Cooper’s Hawke. Unfortunately, the third time was not a charm....growing pains? Service was again excellent, though overly slow. Entrees we had previously enjoyed had slipped noticeably in quality. Shaved Brussels sprouts, excellent the first time, arrived with very few of the tasty marcona almonds, no sign of shaved Parmesan, no taste of lemon, and minimal balsamic glaze. Shrimp and scallops risotto, excellent the first time, was overwhelmed by soggy, greasy, spinach, with the lukewarm pasta resting in a pool of grease. I should have sent this back, but after the long wait decided not to wait any longer. Another entree, gnocchi carbonara, was heavy on the Parmesan cream sauce, light on the pancetta, peas, with over cooked pasta. We did not finish these and informed our server that they were disappointing. Again, we should have returned these, but did not want another long wait for replacements. No price adjustment was offered.

The restaurant looks lovely. Plenty of staff - but the service was incredibly slow and they were very inattentive.
- Not seated on time
- Wine very slow to come out (nearly half was done with entrees before it was delivered)
- Slow to get dessert order and then super slow to deliver desserts
- Final straw - took forever to get our check and then more than 20 minutes until it was returned with our credit card

Food overpriced for quality/quantity

Cooper's Hawk is like an upscale mediocre restaurant if that isn't an oxymoron. The layout is pretty cool and love the complimentary wine. We had amazing service and everything came out quickly. The food was good but nothing I'd write home about. Could improve the flavor profiles a bit.
