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 😉

I would not at this time. My last experience was average. The server just wasn’t on her game that day in the dining room. How I mean that is... she left us waiting and wondering 3x what was up? One of the times she came back to apologize and said she had to track the bottle of wine down. Had she stopped by the table first to let us know what was up we would have appreciated her attentiveness. The manager did apologize and gave us an appetizer credit, which is appreciated but we still left feeling like the service is average.
We were a party of 5 celebrating a birthday and had a hard time hearing each other due to 2 other tables seated near by.

The appetizers were mostly tasty. Asian tostadas was excellent and sausage and ricotta flatbread was tasty. But the Asade flatbread was skimpy on the meat and dry.
We ordered two different risotto dishes that were very bland and we would not order again.

So for these reasons our experience was average. Unfortunately this is my second negative food experience here. The food consistency needs to be worked on. Some of your food is very good but all of it should be very good.

I enjoy the membership very much and hope this review gives you enough detail to help improve everyone’s experience.

The appetizers were delicious. The food tasted okay. The noise level was extremely loud. My potatoes were not fully cooked but they replaced it with mashed potatoes which were good. The salmon was good but over cooked.

A tad too pricey and I must say that it was a bit ridiculous to have a valet for such a small lot.
I would recommend using the valet service once the lot fills up but customers should be able to self park in the lot.

The wait for the tasting was over 30 minutes for 2 people on a Wednesday night. There were only 3 staff members working the tasting table, definitely not enough for the amount of people waiting. Once we were seated, everything was fine.

Love this place! Join the wine club too but make sure it is for the 2 bottle club because there are a lot more perks! The food and service are consistently good! One of the servers blew me away when she remembered who I was by name from a previous visit! She was so awesome that we are requesting her for a dinner I have scheduled in September for 16 of us! This may be a franchise, but you can't tell. The service is really good and the staff is rather friendly! I have been their at least 10-12 times since it opened and everyone I go with really likes it! Nice job team Cooper's Hawk!

I really enjoy Coopers hawk. We are club members and thoroughly enjoy the wines and tasting. We have always had a top rated experience. Saturday night we were a little disappointed. The service was extremely slow had to ask for bread and Our food was messed up. We only sent back one of the plates however as I live by the motto never send back food!! They were very prompt when they brought out the replacement and the food was all very good. to be fair the waitress was newer but it was still a very disappointing evening. I am really glad this was not my first try because I would not have gone back. That being said the food was delish as always and the wines are always good. Oh and the addition of Valet parking is amazing!! Step it up on the service and it would be perfect!!

Enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Coopers Hawk Winery to celebrate our anniversary. Kathy D took incredible care of us, and her knowledge of the wine and enterprise was a splendid addition to a fantastic meal. The service and environment was top notch, and the food was delightful. We will definitely return.

would recommend for a group that wants to drink wine and eat .. have fun. Food was good - but not spectacular. Very noisy place - it was ok. Probably won't go back unless we have a large group that wants to focus on the winery part...

If you love good wine, good food and atmosphere then CH is the place for you. Join the wine club (which is a great value) and you get tastings, discounts and great wine at an amazing price. I definitely recommend Cooper’s Hawk.

We’ve been several times and this time was no different than any other, which is good because I believe the success of any restaurant is solid consistency and delivery. Love being a member and always enjoy visiting. Next up, a celebration of my moms birthday in September! Looking forward to having some fun with the tastings, celebrating, sharing this experience with my family who have not been yet and see what the wine of the month will be! 😉🍷 Thank you!

I went with a group of friends to Cooper's Hawk Winery and Restaurant to celebrate a birthday. The food was so delicious! I had the brussel sprouts appetizer which is my favorite appetizer EVER, and the Roadhouse burger which is my favorite burger EVER. I wish I could eat there every night.

Like this place but way too loud and the air conditioning was so cold we couldn't wait to get out of there. Lunch is better as it is quieter. But if you want LOUD and not able to hear each other at the table this is your place. Food is good.

This was a great overall experience. The food was excellent. Made reservations and was seated about 15 minutes late. Other than that it was the beginning of a great evening. There is a wide variety of wine options to choose from. Perfect place for a date night. Reservations are a must.

While this restaurant, ambiance and location are excellent my wife was disappointed with her specific dish and the waiters response to her concern. My wife received a gift card for her 50th birthday and we visited for the first time this week. We ordered the crunchy shrimp appetizer, which was delicious and the beer and wine were also marvelous. I ordered the 3 medallions and it was excellent. My wife debated over 3 dishes she thought mouth watering and after getting a recommendation from the waiter she ordered the shrimp and scallop risotto. The dish lacked buttery flavor, cheesy creaminess and overall consistency that my wife enjoys of a risotto. When asked by the waiter how our food was my wife brought to the waiter's attention that the risotto was not that great, was clumpy and lacked some creaminess. The waiter's response was "but it's still good right?". She finished some of it and then ordered dessert. The waiter asked how desert was and my wife said she was enjoying dessert more than dinner, to which the waiter replied "sometimes that happens".
We expected that someone would have acknowledged that my wife did not enjoy her dinner but that reaction and response never came.
