The food was fabulous and service was very nice. It was outdoor dining with heated lamps and we went early so it wasn’t too chilly outside. We are very happy since we wanted
someplace special to celebrate our anniversary.

Hawks did a wonderful job helping us celebrate our anniversary. Despite the challenges of sidewalk dining during the newest round of restaurant indoor seating restrictions, Hawks staff made this a memorable experience.

The food, service and ambience are always superb! I would give them 6 stars! We have dined all over, including internationally and throughout the Bay Area (French Laundry inclusive). I would put our experiences at Hawks at the top of our culinary list. Very grateful to have this gem in our backyard!

We arrived 10 minutes early for our reservation, but were seated immediately. The practice social distance with the tables a a nd had masks. We felt safe and the food and service were fantastic. Due to Covid it is a smaller menu with less choices, but the food was excellent and we have no complaints.

My wife and I did the prix fixe menu for her birthday and it was amazing! The waiter was extremely knowledgeable about the food and the wines, and the restaurant was clean and modern. My wife’s phone even fell under the booth seat, and one of the waiters got it for us, and it was even clean under there. The food was amazing, everything was cooked perfectly. I have no idea how many times we said “wow, this is good” during our meal. It was not cheap, but we feel the service, quality of food, and overall atmosphere was worth it. We will definitely be back in the future.

A dinner at Hawks is never a disappointment! Our server was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. The gnocchi was delicious! Our filets were cooked perfectly, and the short ribs were great as usual. Hawks is a great place to relax and enjoy a truly fine meal.

The only thing I would change is the downlighting that can be a bit harsh.

The food and service was amazing. Mark's knowledge about the food and wine impressed us. The filet mignon was cooked perfectly rare with parmesan fingerling potatoes, and the grilled swordfish was fresh and served with broccoli rabe in a white bean vinagirette.

The cheese plate was better than we remember, and the chocolate creme de pot was delightful.

Our dining experience at Hawks was phenomenal as always. From the gnocchi appetizer to the goldbud apple & chicory salad to our swordfish entrees the flavors and presentation was absolutely on-point.

What a pleasure and fantastic surprise to see that Rob V. is back!!!

We also appreciated and felt very safe in that Hawks is meeting/exceeding C-19 protocols.

The food and service were first class. We did the tasting menu, and wine flight, each course of the meal was paired perfectly. This will most definitely become a once a month if not more place for us to go.

The food was delicious with unexpectedly reasonable portion sizing. The service was great - never needed to look for anyone or ask for anything, but not annoying either. Great place for a special night.

Outdoor seating are is nice. Located behind the restaurant where you are overlooking a marsh/lake. Menu was limited to a handful of entrees. Service was excellent. Charcuterie plate was a great appetizer and well worth the money as the portions of each item were generous.

If you’re looking for a fancy dinner then this will be it. The ambiance outdoor and indoor was really sweet and romantic. They follow the covid19 guidelines. Very nice people and they respect your space. Giving it 4 stars because the wagyu burger I ordered was supposed to be medium but they overcooked it. Nice presentation of food otherwise.
