The server was less than excited to be there (or so it seemed), also not very personable.
The large table to our left was very loud which made it difficult for my wife and I to celebrate her birthday.
The food was excellent!

Food was excellent however the service.... not so much. I think they must have had more people just wondering around instead of actually doing something. We waited 15 minutes for our wine and ran out of water twice and had to flag someone down to come refill.

Thursday night so it wasn’t crowded but there were two separate family parties of more that 6 sat at around 7:30-8pm and the kids (under 5) were allowed to run free around the tables. Made it hard to have a romantic date with that being allowed. I understand ultimately the parents are to blame, but none of the wait staff seem to mention it to them.

It really killed the mood for the meal. We skipped dessert and just headed to the theatre early.

I feel very lucky to for have Kat for my server. She did a fantastic job of making our dinning experience a pleasure. The food was delicious from the apps to the desert. Great Job. Not one complaint from anyone at the table. We were visiting in Jacksonville FL and saw this restaurant but were not able to dine there. So when we saw it here in Virginia Beach we all decided to give it a try. Glad we did.

It was the second time in a row from the same waitress that we went that we didn’t get offered any complementary bread when there are tables all around us getting it, Kind of bummed out too because their pretzel bread it is amazing. But the girl Emily at the bar is fantastic don’t let her go

It was extremely loud and difficult to hear. The waitress placed 2 incorrect orders & no one offered a small discount. The manager did apologize as did the waitress. We just thought maybe a small small discount or comp our appetizer would have been nice.

Service was a bit spotty for a restaurant with $32+ entrees. We just had a casualty dinner and the burgers were greasy and flavorless. The shrimp appetizer was excellent. The wines are all young...and they taste young; just not good at all.

I brought a few girlfriends for my birthday dinner and We only had reservations for 6. Well 3 more girlfriends surprised me and even though the restaurant was packed. They were able to accommodate all of us. Just understand that I love the service and food if the restaurant and the wine tasting is Amazing 😉

Drinks at the bar we’re really good. For appetizer: Pretzel bread awesome, Brussels sprouts were overcooked. Dinner the steak was undercooked and hamburger was overcooked. The manager compensated with dessert.👍. Server told aus they switched up some personnel in the kitchen and may have caused problems we had with our food choices. The staff was friendly in the jury is out on whether or not we will return.

The atmosphere and food is always great at Cooper's Hawk. We usually start with a wine tasting before heading to the dining room. It's always a great surprise when we visit and have Kat as our server. During this visit, we had the eggs and toast which was a great play on deviled eggs, especially since I normally don't eat deviled eggs. The gnocchi with butternut squash and chicken was in a delicious sauce. Everyone else loved their main dishes as well and they came from the kitchen perfectly timed. Kat is skilled in the art of dining. She knows how to keep the orders from coming out early and allows plenty of time to finish cocktails and appetizers prior to dinner. We're looking forward to our next tasting and dinner. Be sure to ask for Kat, or don't so we can have her all to ourselves next time!

Cooper’s Hawk is still a work in progress. Service glitches are fewer, and some of the menu items, particularly the scallop dishes, have been excellent in our several visits to this venue. My last entree did not fair as well. A combo of steak and scallops found the steak cut much too thin to be prepared medium rare, and the entire dish was swimming in a brown sauce which did not enhance the potato encrusted scallops. On a previous visit, a pricey beef tenderloin was served well beyond the requested medium rare and was strangely tough. Service had been painstakingly slow that evening, so I did not return this item as I should have.

You can't go wrong with the appetizers here. Often it is all we order and they satisfy completely. Go for the calamari and bruschetta but the Thai wraps are excellent as well.
