The greeter at the table for checking our reservation was horrible. She didn’t give eye contact , she told us we had to wait two hours just for a table . One hour into waiting i decided to just make a reservation online and we were seated right away . As we proceed to our table there were five to six empty table . Her service was very distasteful, but my food and drinks and my waiter was great !

I really enjoy this restaurant. Food is cooked to order and there is a sufficient variety for a group of diners w diverse palettes. Service was great too.

The kitchen made a mistake and barely started one of the meals shortly before the others were done but two desserts were provided gratis for this error.

We brought guests who hadn’t been there before who loved it and said they would be back.

Only thing that would make it better is better sound control. It is really too noisy for a restaurant this nice.

Normally top stars on everything. I love this restaurant! Excellent everything! On this occasion, however, we were particularly going for chocolate cake! This is our comfort food - amazing and crave worthy normally - which was baked with an error and very off. New pastry chef. Unfortunately they had not a good slice to be had. We will be back for this delicious dessert!

Always a favorite get-together spot. Service was a little slower than normal, especially with getting our wine and ordering, but we weren’t in any rush so it wasn’t a big deal. My friend and I are both Wine Club members so we got our free July bottle at the table and had birthday rewards to use, too.

Our only noticeable complaint is the food temperature. Our appetizers were lukewarm at best when served and our entree was cold halfway through eating it. Noise level was too loud . Otherwise a perfect anniversary celebration.

Our server was outstanding!

Our waitress was terrible. Always had good service. We did not get silverware till our food was brought and we asked. Also we asked for wine then. She did not ask. I'm glad this was the only time I had such bad service.

Cooper's Hawk Winery and Restaurant in Merrillville represents more of a finer dining place to eat than normally offered in Merrillville. The menu features a better quality and uncommon choice in this area.

I took my wife for her birthday, the quality of the food wasn't as good as we remembered from previous times we went. The waitress forgot to give my wife the birthday treat.
The experience made a moment of pleasure in our life a little disappointing .

Great food, great service, excellent wine. During second visit the amount of wine in my glass was far less than what I expected, nonetheless the dinning experience was as expected. Will mention this to the wait staff if this happens again.

We had 3 people in our party who have Celiac Disease and needed to eat Gluten Free. We were blown away by all the options on the huge GF menu and overjoyed when everything (starting with the delicious bread) that we ordered came out beautifully and tasted amazing! We were so appreciative that the staff was so accommodating and made them feel “normal”! We will be back!

I've had yet another marvelous meal at Cooper's Hawk in Merrillville. My sister and I went at lunchtime on a Sunday. Our server was Monica - the best server I've ever had there. She was cordial and very knowledgeable about the wines and the menu.

We ordered a bottle of superb wine, the Washington Cabernet Sauvignon. Instead of ordering entrees this time, we decided to share two appetizers. We had the Thai Lettuce Wraps, one of my favorite dishes, and it was good as ever. The serving is generous; enough for three wraps apiece with finely shredded veggies, grilled chicken, crispy won ton strips and other garnishes. The wraps come with three sauces, all of which are delicious. Our other appetizer was the calamari. Oh my goodness -- it was fantastic! It was tempura style and cooked to perfection; not at all greasy and came with a yummy dipping sauce.

I've dined at this restaurant many times, and it is consistently excellent. This particular visit was especially nice because of the phenomenal service we received from Monica. I'm going to request her station when I make future reservations.

My only criticism is that it is somewhat noisy in the main dining room. This could be helped with some upholstery or drapes to absorb some of the sound, or perhaps some sound-absorbing ceiling panels. Other than the noisiness, I love the ambiance of this restaurant. It's great for dates, special occasions, or just lunch or dinner with friends for no particular reason.
