This was my husband and my first time visiting. The reservation process using open table couldn’t be any easier. All of the staff we encountered were friendly. Caleb, our server, was busy as can be but checked in with us frequently and kept us updated with what was happening with our meal. The blueberry sangria was fresh and flavorful. My only “complaint” is the asparagus fries don’t come in a supersized portion! They were delicious! We had the sweet potato roll, the knucklehead roll, a salmon avocado roll, and the rainbow dragon roll. All of them were a 10/10 and the rainbow dragon may have been the best roll I’ve had! All in all, incredibly satisfied guests who will be back sooner rather than later.

I have always had a wonderful experience at Cooper’s Hawk. I’ve never had a meal. I did not like. I recently had the jambalaya that was delicious and the Thai lettuce wraps are my favorite appetizer.
