Always enjoy this dining experience. Staff is friendly and accommodating, and they offer excellent suggestions for 'the extras'. I usually have the yummy beef ribs; they seemed a bit salty this time so
I'll try something else. Love the crispy crunchy salad and they made special plates for the birthday
salad. We always know we'll have a fantastic meal snd they know how to accommodate their customers

There were a couple of large parties there when we first got there that were so noisy we couldn't really hear each other. Once they left it was extremely pleasant. Our waitress was lovely and as always, the food was fantastic! I had a wonderful birthday!

OMG this place is Amazing!! You have to try the duck and pork belly!! Wow my taste buds went berserk! It is pricey but it is well worth it. The service was amazing too! They didn't judge us for being in jeans and a t-shirt. Had a blast! Will go back again!

The food is always a treat. Service was excellent and each of the various servers had a little special flair whether it was humor, precise work traits or just coming past the table to assure everything was good.

I just moved to the area and heard wonderful reviews. I treated my best friend visiting from Pennsylvania to this dinner. McKenzie, our server was phenomenal! The banquet seating near the patio was perfect for viewing the whole room. Best rib steak ever!! My only comment in terms of value, the sides with the steak were very small. Beyond that, will definitely plan on the Happy Hour on Wednesdays and will plan dinner again as well.

Dinner with dear friends from SF who are contemplating moving here. Three of our meals were outstanding but my wife's meal was terrible - she couldn't finish it - cannot remember what it was but I do recall that it was some Hawaiian dish over seaweed. I took a bite and found it very distasteful.

The booth seats were not comfortable-they make you sink too low. They had a “butter chicken” but i didnt realize it was “fried chicken” and although they were good i would have preferred a healthier chicken.

had to ask 3 times for ice tea; waiters did not seem attentive unless you were ordering wine or alcoholic beverages; lots of wait staff walking around not stopping to ask if anything was needed; wait staff seemed disorganized; rude comment by wait staff "gee your the only ones that ate the whole thing"; (in ref to the rib steak dinner for 2 ); wait staff trying to box up dessert before we were finished eating; apparently we wore out our welcome.

Unfortunately there were two men sitting next to us using profanity nearly every other word which was a terrible distraction. We’ve never had this happen before. Because of their lack of courtesy, our date was cut short. The food was outstanding, and Tony as always took care of our every need- including the most amazing mocktails for me and cocktails for my husband.

Hawks has a warm and upscale atmosphere that is both friendly and professional. The staff is outstanding and our server was both knowledgeable and very personable. Service was timely, but not rushed. The food was amazing. The citrus and beet salad was delicious. The onion soup had wonderful texture and flavor. The filet mignon was lean, juicy and full of flavor. The raspberry mousse and chocolate tort was a great finish to the meal. The suggested wine pairings were well done. A great meal and evening.

An absolutely incredible dining experience! My boyfriend’s surprise birthday dinner was a success! Our server, Chad I believe it was, was amazing. He gave us awesome recommendations and was very attentive, along with the other miscellaneous servers that made sure our plates were clear, water was full and food was cooked to perfection. The food was incredible, you can tell the chefs cook with passion. We ate the rib steak for two, the gnocchi as an appetizer and chocolate orange soufflé, each cooked perfect, delicious with great flavor! The restaurant was busy, and people were conversing but we had a romantic, comfortable booth that cancelled out most of the noise and we were able to talk and enjoy our food peacefully. I can’t say enough good things about Hawks! We will definitely be back!

Lee Domanico has enjoyed your restaurant on several occasions. There was a bit of a mix-up when he arrived and wasn't told his guest had already arrived and was seated at the table, so he waited over 5 minutes and then called me to confirm with his guest. When I called his guest, we all had a laugh and they quickly found each other after my call. Thank you - Renee'

Another of our bi-monthly Hawks dinners, this time purchasing the Tasting Menu for four. It was spectacular with lobster soup, a large, tender scallop on shredded short ribs and potato, beef tenderloin and tiramisu. Hawks never disappoints, 'nough said. We are arranging a dinner for 15 in March but will probably be back before then.

Truly wonderful food, but be sure to be seated in a chair, not the upholstered "settees" along the windows, or in the booths--you will sink so low, you can't eat comfortably.

I was recommended this restaurant as something you definitely have to try. My girlfriend and I enjoyed it. The servers were very professional. Despite them changing their menu with the seasons, the servers knew their foods inside and out. They constantly kept checking in on us and the chef kept giving compliments. It was really nice place to go to for the ambiance. Definitely going back!
