My family and I are becoming regulars here at Cooper’s Hawk. We love the atmosphere and the service. We enjoy trying different wines and now have new favorites! Liz was out server this last visit and she was awesome! Very attentive, had a sense of humor, lovely personality and wore a smile the whole time! Thanks Liz for the great experience.

This visit to Cooper's Hawk was very disappointing, the wait staff was slow to respond and check in with us. Food was not prepared as asked, the hamburger was well done and medium rare was requested. The appetizer was not hot and did not meet the expectations that we had from the last visit. The noise level was very high. I have been to this location several times, and the biggest concern I have is consistency . The Short Pump location in Richmond has always been excellent and when this location opened in Virginia Beach i did not expect any less. However, it misses the mark on service, food preparation and consistence all around.

The service was not what we are accustomed to at this restaurant. Wait staff was slow to get us, slow to take or order and our food took a long time to arrive. Waiter realized he did not separate our checks as we requested, so there was a delay then as well. Food was ok, but not as good as we have had before. Dining room was not busy, so I have to think the restaurant was understaffed. I hope this is not a trend.

Overall it was a good meal- I was just disappointed Because I made the reservation for our 5 year Anniversary and it was not really mentioned and it was just an ordinary meal- we came to celebrate and just didn’t feel special at all.

The steak medallions were perfection! Romance Red wine was my favorite among the sweet tastings.

In the past it has been a little loud but we do sit in the bar area most of the time so it is expected... Friday night it was great all around! It is one of our favorite places!

Has soon as you enter the establishment you are greeted with great costumer service and staff that act like they want to serve you!! Our server was very nice and was always checking on us. Food was great and it was brought out in a timely manner. I will be going back soon.

Excellent food, wine, and service. Very short wait for our table with a reservation. Ambiance was nice casual and quite comfortable.

It was our 51st wedding anniversary. Only downside was that the restaurant was SO noisy that conversation was practically impossible. Granted, it was a Saturday evening at probably the busiest time of the evening (7:00 PM).

We have patronized Cooper’s Hawk several times and certainly will again. It is a great addition to the local restaurant scene. I do ‘t know a solution, but it would be nice to be able to enjoy a first class meal in a setting which could allow for some pleasant and unforced conversation.

Food was salty and came out in intervals for the table, not well coordinated. Server offered additional wine as our meals ultimately arrived, but the wine never came.
They need work on these aspects of their service.

Service was awesome! Our waitress was amazing, she took the time to explain the wines to us and let us try them! This was our first time at the VA beach restaurant, we usually go to Annapolis and I have to say the VA beach restaurant is way better and much friendlier. The staff actually cares versus Annapolis who is very rude.

I love love love this restaurant!!!! The brussel sprouts are soooo good!
However, every time we are there we get the same server. She is short, Caucasian, plus size with black or dark brown hair. Very nice but very overbearing. She reaches across our food and has even gotten her sleeve in our plates twice. We can not put a wrapper on the table without her being right there to take it off the table. It is a bit much. Other than that....wonderful!!!

Worth giving it a try, but we won't go back for dinner. We might go back for wine tasting and appetizers.
Dinner entrees were disappointing, poor value and food cold.
Waitress got busy and seemed to forget about us.

My husband and I have been to Coopers Hawk twice now and have really enjoyed both visits! The food was amazing, wine was delicious, and the service was fantastic! Only thing I didn't enjoy was it was very load in the restaurant so sometimes it was hard to hear! But we will return!

I found the restaurant very busy but it was a comfortable atmosphere. The food I ordered was very good, tasty, moist and tender. The drink I ordered was also good. The waitresses were personal and really friendly . Our total experience was very positive.

We were never offered bread when every other table around us received some. Our wine sample arrived after we were through with the appetizer and our glass of wine arrived half way through our entree. The service did not match the price point of our dining experience.

My husband and I were thrilled to find a Cooper’s Hawk in our neck of the woods. Well, 30 miles away. The service is always superb. All of us at our table ordered different entrees, but mine was the best. The filet medallions are simply out of this world! I’ll probably never order anything but that. =)

The restaurant is too loud. You were out of calamari at 8:00 pm on a Friday night. That should never happen to a restaurant of your quality. Ahi Tuna and Pork Belly Appetizers were excellent. The entrees were not even average. The risotto was of no quality at all. I expected better from a restaurant of your caliber & was disappointed.

Great ambience, food was good, could have used a little more sauce on my meatballs..but still delicious, great wine (I chose a Merlot)...I know shocking!!! But delicious. Not too happy with service...I am sure if she would have spent as much time with my table as she did with others...her tip would have been as noticeable. My money is green...regardless of the color of my skin 😉
