Food is phenomenal. Service is great. And they are consistently at this level. Highly recommend. We had the tasting menu for the first time and it was creative and delicious. Great wine pairings. Worth the drive to granite Bay.

We have always enjoyed our dining experiences at Hawkes. This was our third visit. We had a special occasion, and although we do not live in the area, we decided to celebrate there. We ordered the chef's tasting menu which was delicious and well executed. Our server was personable and very attentive as was all of the staff. We will definitely go back again.

This is our favorite restaurant for 30 miles. It's slow pace, so be ready to have complete service over time and enjoy it. The food portions are small but order several different dishes. Wait staff is awesome and every table is a good seat in the house. If I have two hours for a date night, I'm going to Hawks.

Absolutely delicious dinner! Our party of 4 was seated in time, and we each ordered an appetizer, meal plus dessert. Service was excellent. We were all highly impressed and can’t wait to come back again!

Our server, Adam, was exceptional! Very knowledgeable of the menu and drinks. The four people in our party had different meals, so we were able to taste a little of everything. The potato gnocchi was the perfect appetizer. They will make it so that four people can share! The filet was outstanding as usual. The maple brined port chop was perfectly cooked with the caramelized apples. A perfect fall meal. The butternut squash agnolotti in brown butter was yummy. The short rib was delicious in red wine sauce. The perfect ending was the butter pecan gelato waffle cone, a must! Overall a perfect dinner!

We eat at Hawks often and are never disappointed. The food is exceptional and the presentation a feast for the eyes. Don’t miss out on the craft cocktails, fresh homemade ingredients make for very tasty drinks.
We love this place. One last comment, the Gnocchis are out of this world.

Fantastic! I had the Short Ribs and my husband had the Filet. We split the Potato Gnocchi as an appetizer and enjoyed the Beignets for dessert. Food and service were amazing. It is pricey, i.e. the Filet was $49 and even though we brought our own bottle of wine, our bill was $195 w/tip. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and the only thing the restaurant did for us was write Happy Anniversary on the side of the dessert plate. I thought that was a bit cheap for a fine dining establishment. You would think you would get a complimentary dessert or glass of something. Friends have asked me "what did Hawk's do for your anniversary?" and I said "nothing."

Burger was good, nothing exceptional appetizer price $17 note dinner price $22. Service staff (2) met my expectation seated outside during happy hour w/ view of bushes (advertised view overlooking valley) when the food arrived the flies attacked. Server overheard my special occasion and served a treat. That attention to service was 5 stars. Overall value 1 Star No Wow factor.

This is our favorite place for dinner.
We would like to see more vegan options and fish options. Also if there’s a way of Deming the overhead lights, that would be better for the ambience. We also think the wine bottle prices are a little too high.
Service was wonderful as always.

Our second trip to Hawks lagged only in the service. The food was marvelous, as usual. The finest Lamb Shank I've ever had. Service was a bit slow, not at all the super attention we got the first time. Great value, incredible food. We'll definitely be back

Superb dining experience. It is not necessary for me to be reminded of a reservation less than 18 hours after I made it. And a call to confirm. I told you last year neither necessary nor appreciated. Jerry Quinn
