    It was the first time in a long time for going The Cooperage. The occasion for us was a birthday celebration. The positives: a good space, the staff was attentive but not pushy, we were able to get seated almost immediately. The less thans: inside the restaurant was noisy, there was a long wait to get food, and the food was certainly good, but not outstanding. I will go again, but probably not soon.

    I have dined at the Cooperage twice in the last month. The setting and service is great. Dining outside is wonderful, and the noise level is fine. The good is quite good. Yesterday, I had a Crab Louie, and two weeks ago, I had a burger. Both were delightful. This is a great place to meet friends and enjoy the outside.

    Our first time there, parking is easy right out front and free on Sundays. It was noisy in the main room so they put us in a large booth in a secondary room. Service was very good with the hostess, waiter, and busboy checking on us regularly. I had ordered a Cosmopolitan which tasted awful so I sent it back and got a Jim Beam and ginger ale and that was much better. The french dip with smoked prime rib was awesome and large so I brought half of it home. The beer battered onion rings are a must for a modest $3 upcharge with a sandwich. The sandwich had a lucious gravy to dip in and a side of creamed horse radish. My wife had the mussel dinner with toasted baguette for dipping and the Burrata appetizer (lots of creamy cheese). Both excellent. I also had the tuna tartare which came with crunchy fried wonton wrappers. Also excellent. ~$150 for two for two drinks, two apps and two entrees. What can I say eating out is not cheap, but I felt it was worth it. We will definitely go back soon.

    We had Mother’s Day dinner here on Sunday evening and the food was great. We sat inside at one of their oversized, cushioned booth tables. We had 6 guests and it was a bit squished but comfortable. This made for intimate conversations and good bonding. I had the Nicoise Salad. It was delicious.

    The Coop had something for everyone: our party enjoyed shared deviled eggs (“green eggs & ham,” eggs, bacon & pesto), then scallops, French dip, steak frites, and short rib, all done expertly and delicious. Good service. Good ambience. It was a great place for our Mothers’ Day gathering.

    It's a nice place, with ample outdoor and indoor seating. Our waiter was nice. Some of the food was amazing (the burrata salad) while others were just okay... Maybe the kitchen was in the weeds because it was Mother's Day brunch, but the avocado toast which sounds amazing on the menu, was literally avocado bread... the "toast" was soft, mushy and moist, so not toast at all, and rather disappointing... They must have either run out of the short rib "hash" or changed it up without notifying the waitstaff, because what we got was their short rib stew (not on the brunch menu, and a different flavor profile)... so that was disappointing as well... So I'd say C+ or B- overall....was it an off-day?

    The restaurant crowd was very loud. It was almost impossible to have a dining conversation. We ate in the inside dining area and hoped for quiet, or at least no yelling. We knew the bar area would be loud and even the dining area was very loud. The service was ok...very unfriendly and I had to ask for things which I ordered. We will not likely return.

    We ordered the crab cakes, asked for the sauce on the side (my wife can't handle anything spicy) and it came with the sauce on it - told the server and he apologized, but did nothing else. I ordered the burger medium rare, and it came out overcooked. I didn't want to be a whiner so didn't complain about it given that we complained about the crab cakes, and it was tasty and a good burger, but it should have been prepared as ordered. My wife enjoyed her Nicoise salad which she got as an entree.

    Brunch was very, VERY good and the service was spot on perfect. I had the eggs Benedict and a side order of fruit, which was a mix of beautiful and perfectly ripe berries. A raspberry mimosa to top it off., and my husband was very happy with his Bloody Mary. We ate outdoors and it was not crowded at all.

    A lively night for a Monday. Our party had cocktails, Steak Frites, French Dip sandwich, and the half rack of ribs. Nothing extraordinary, but nothing to complain about either. I’d say The Coop is more compelling for lunch and Happy Hour than dinner, especially as the weather warms up.

    Beautiful evening to dine outside. Caesar salad preference is torn or chopped leaves; don’t like long leaves to cut up. The main course was very good, the dessert disappointing to say the least. They mentioned that the little donuts were on the menu with chocolate & caramel dipping sauce. The donuts were hollow shaped, hard nothings. Not like the donuts I know. I recommend passing on that dessert.
