                                                          The Cooper has a varied and interesting menu that should address most people's culinary tastes and diets. The atmosphere is good and includes outdoor dining which is set up nicely if a bit close to the road. The thing I like best about the Cooper are the drinks. I'm typically a straight alcohol (tequila / vodka) guy, but I do look for something interesting from time to time. The problem with ordering cocktails out is that they are almost always way too sweet. The Cooper has the most interesting and well balanced cocktails I have ever had.

                                                          We visited and ate outside when the temperature was in the low 50's. Food was very good and the service was excellent. However, despite a huge parking lot that was 90% empty, it was only for valet. Perhaps the Cooper is unaware that there is a pandemic, especially in south Florida. I don't want a valet in my car. The closest parking space was about 1/2 mile away. After getting to the restaurant, we realized the space heaters were inadequate and I had to return to my car for sweaters for our group. I walked a total of about 2 miles. no meal justifies that. Never again.

                                                          Sat outside, plenty of room. Enjoyed a variety of food. Nice portions. Kitchen a bit slow on main course and getting check a bit slow, but we just lingered over latte's and cappuccino's. Otherwise, service very good. Creative kitchen, wait staff helpful on selecting cocktails and main courses. A very pleasant dining experience.

                                                          We went to the Cooper for dinner last Saturday night. We had reserved an outdoor table, which we were very happy with. They have their table spaced apart, and felt very safe eating there. The food was delicious. We shared 3 appetizers, the burrata, the meatballs, and the truffle mac and cheese, and they were all amazing. Our entrees were all delicious, as were the 2 desserts we shared. Our waitress was fabulous, very helpful with suggestions. We can't wait to go back!

                                                          Had to give 4 vs 5 stars because we had to wait 40 minutes for our 7 pm reservation. Now it is the holiday crowded season and everyone wants an outside table, so I expected a short wait, but 40 min a bit too long. Otherwise, great vibe and great food. Food came out very quickly which made up for long table wait. Loved all our food - octopus, meatballs, salad, scallops and branzino special.
