We dined outside in a tent. The food was great. But we were very cold as there was little in the way of space heaters.

Outside dining only but propane heaters helped. Great service! Food was all really good but every commented that it was a bit too salty and we all ordered different entrees. Maybe it’s because we haven’t been out for a while due to shutdown. Would definitely go back though

Food was amazing and service was great. The eggnog and spiked eggnog are terrific seasonal treats. It is an absolute crime that we had to eat in the cold, but that isn't their fault. It's a bigger crime that they're locked down now. Free the restaurants!

This was my first time at Hawk's - they did an incredible job of accommodating the outdoor-only dining rules during the pandemic. Jackie, our server, was lovely! It was our one and only "night out" all year and it was very special. Big thanks to the staff for helping me celebrate my birthday with delicious food and cocktails!

Not your typical Hawks experience. Instead of being seated in the outdoor tent, we were seated on the regular outdoor patio.. it was 48°, and we had one heater near us. After the initial interaction, we waited 20 mins for our server to come back to our table, and when she didn’t, we had to go inside to get someone’s attention to order another round of drinks. They comped the second round of drinks, but this was by far the worst service I’ve had at this restaurant yet.

With outdoor dining, be sure to bundle up. The heaters are good for 2 of the 4 at the table but you might want to bring layers.

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.

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.
