Cheyenne at the wine tasting bar was great! It was very cold in the restaurant. Our waiter was new. He told us it was his third day there. He was okay but ended up charging us at the end when we came in with complimentary dinner and wine certificates. So the manager had to come over and work it out with us. This delayed us, so we were past the 90 minutes and the free parking and ended up having to pay. I know it was only $2, but we were waiting a lot and that shouldn't have happened. Or, Cooper's Hawk should have longer than 90 minutes for free parking.

Wine of the month was delicious. The manager was wonderful. He spend some time at our table and took and order for us.

My burger was over cooked (I asked for medium well and I got well done - almost burnt and tough) The fries tasted as if they had been sitting out. They were not hot.

Despite this experience, my overall impression is very good and I will return

It was fun spending time with friends. One of our friends is leaving to the PeaceCorps and it was fun going over stories and hopes for the future. Coopers is always and good time. Food was good except my gnocchi was left under the heat lamp too long and the cream sauce was dried. Still good flavor. Didn’t say anything because we were a big group and I didn’t want to make a scene.

Food and wine are excellent. They offer you samples of their wine of the month. - one red and if you ask, one white. Service was phenomenal. The noise level was deafening. We were seated next to a party who felt that every person at that table needed to be louder than the guy next to them. I couldn't even hear my dinner guest. We highly recommend the potsticker appetizer. six nice sized dumplings arrive on a bed of sweet slaw. For dinner we both had the Chicken Piccata. Three fairly large pieces of chicken on a bed of angel hair pasta swimming in a decadent lemon sauce!!! We both had leftovers for lunch the next day. Be sure to browse the front of the restaurant and pick yourself up a bottle of wine. We've never had a bad one from Coopers Hawk. Better yet, become a member of the Wine Club and receive two bottles a month.

We were originally places by the kitchen. Given our party spanned three generations, and we were celebrating my 8th graders graduation, and this made conversation hard. I asked if we could move our party of six to another table and they accommodated us without complaint. Service was awfully slow given a Saturday at 1pm, in a setting that was not crowded, but we overall was pleased with the experience. Not sure I’d go there for a regular meal as the time commitment is too much, but a lovely place to celebrate something.

Food wasn't as good as previous visits. Chicken giardiniera was dry and tasteless. The pickled veggies were way too spicy. The Crispy Maui Shrimp were mostly breading, not much shrimp. The Asian slaw was tasty, but I won't order Mary's potatoes again, too much cheese, not enough potato.

The candied bacon and cheese appetizer was excellent. The drinks were good, too, the bartender knew her business.

Service was good and friendly.

We have been 2 bottle members of Cooper's Hawk, off and on, since early 2012. My wife and I have always loved this restaurant and this location is, by far, the greatest.

For starters, the service is astounding. We were served by Lauren during our most recent visit whose 5-star professionalism, kindness, and knowledge about the restaurant prompted this review. With that said, we were also impressed by the hostess and wine-bar staff who served us and made the restaurant feel like a second home. Truly astounding to any standard.

Apart from the phenomenal staff, the food was excellently prepared, timely in it's delivery, and absolutely delicious. We both ordered the Filet Minon with different sides to share. The steak was excellently cooked and the sides were exceptional as well. Sometimes I feel that it's difficult to get a quality medium-rare steak, but not here!

We also ordered dessert which was a great treat. The s'mores was a wonderful end to the meal and complimented the experience beautifully. A definite recommendation to anyone visiting this restaurant.

With all said and done, Cooper's Hawk is truly memorable and exciting. That said, it's truly the staff, including memorable servers like Lauren, that make this an experience worth coming back for time and time again.

Thanks and cheers to you Cooper's Hawk!

We had a lovely time. Got there about 4:30 and sat and talked and had a wonderful meal. My companions had never been to a Coopers Hawk before. I think you may have some converts! By the time we left (7:00) it was getting a bit on the noisy side and we had to raise our voices to be heard-not too hard to do because we are all teachers/administrators.
