Monday - Thursday: 11:00am - 9:30pm, Friday & Saturday: 11:00am - 10:30pm, Sunday: 11:00am - 9:00pm
No wait time. Food was a little pricey, service was ok. Would come back again but not order the pricey appetizers again, not worth what you get.
Great experience. Will go back soon! It’s best to make reservations! It get crowded especially on the weekend!
The food and drinks are always outstanding ! It is a bit loud but it is an open space so not much you can do about it.
After a harrowing day that included a funeral for my son, I brought my othrr son here to de-stress, unwind and breathe again. The food and service were wonderful- LOVED the crispy brussels sprouts appetizer - and the crzb biswue was very good. BUT. How on earth does a nice restaurznt run out of bread on a Sunday night?? Or ever. And it was so dsrk I had to use my phone to light up the menu. I will be back but the bread issue is just not acceptable.
I had heard how good the food was and needed a restaurant that took reservations. I always check reviews on Yelp and found the Merrillville, Indiana restaurant was highly rated. I had not had veal in awhile so I chose the veal picatta. This was the best choice for me. Really good flavor and veal was crisply breaded. Some of the others had been to Cooper's Hawk Winery in Illinois and Indiana and they said I outdid myself booking this for our lunch. Service was really good, as well. Will be back.
Waiting area to crowded & loud
Our server was absolutely terrible. Not friendly at all. Food sub par.
We celebrated my boyfriends birthday, he had never been to Coopers Hawk before. Staff was so helpful and friendly, we had so much fun
The fish and chips are amazing and of course the wine is excellent!!
Cooper’s messed up all three of our orders. They were very quick to fix it though and even offered us a free bottle of wine as a thank you for our patience. It’s totally understandable to mess up sometimes especially a busy restaurant like that. The manager and waitress handled it really well and we will definitely be back. Service and management like that are the sign of a good business!
The bad experience started from the wine tasting. The young lady who was working that night made my daughter's first experience the worse by far. She did not give good customer service. It showed on her face just how much she did not want to be there. She did not check up on us on a consistency nor did she provide any information on the wine we were tasting considering it was my daughter's first time. By the time we made it to the dinner table; our waitress was just as bad. Our waitress checked on us twice for the entire night. So for an overall score I can only give 2 stars and I had to really go deep inside to pull that one.
Zach did a wonderful job as part of the wait staff. He frequented the table just enough, and was courteous and helpful.
Had a surprisingly good dinner! Entrees of salmon, gnocchi with short rib, and filet were all super!!
We had an enjoyable evening. It was a little noisy, but other than that it was excellent as always.
Bday dinner. Had a very lovely time. Waiter was very good.
Absolutely love everything about this place! My daughter is Gluten Intolerant. They have an entire separate menu filled with wonderful gluten free dishes. Also, when they brought out the warm pretzel bread for the rest of us, they also brought out a warm gluten free mini loaf of bread for her. By far, my entire family's favorite place to eat now. Their wines are wonderful and their wait staff is spectacular!
My husband and I very much enjoyed the wine tasting and meal we had. Our service was wonderful as always and we will be back again soon.
We have been members for well over 5 yrs We love the wine and the food is great! The only gripe is that even though we had reservations for 5pm and were 15 minutes early, we still had a 45 minute wait and the tasting room was full so we had to stand and wait a long time to be seated. In the Merrillville restaurant there is a wall by reception that could use a long padded bench for customers to be able to sit when they must wait to be seated.
We had a great time with friends who were in from out of town. Our server was really knowledgeable when it came to the wine list and was very friendly.
Always great food and our server Mike was fabulous!
We celebrated our 37th anniversary and they gave us each a glass of champagne. My hubby got the pork chop (very good) and I had the fish (good). We shared the smore dessert.
Very disappointed in the food lately! It’s been over cooked and sauces have been off. Plus whatever flavoring they put in the butter for the pretzel bread was too lemony and gross. I hope they get their acts together soon.
Nice atmosphere and we were very slow but the waitress was patient and non intrusive and very helpful!
Wine tasting was awesome and the waiter even gave us a bonus taste. Food is awesome as well and the waitress was very friendly and helpful
Erica was phenomenal! I will definitely request her when we go there again.
The food is always great as well. Everything I've tried I've loved!
Cooper's hawk is always amazing. Great service food and knowledgeable people about their wine.
Great dining experience as usual. I’ve never had a bad experience when I’ve eaten here. I love the relaxed atmosphere.
Thanks to Open table, I was able to make a reservation online last minute. I was seated within 5 minutes. I dined alone and received amazing service. I ordered pork chops and crab cakes. The crab cakes were not to my taste. The pork chop was good although I do not like the crusty topping. The wine was good, I even joined the wine club and left with two bottles of wine. I ordered cheesecake for dessert and it came in a glass cup, not traditional but it was delicious. The appetizers are and wine is well worth the experience.
Just that my gnocchi was over cooked, therefore a little dry and crispy. Ambiance and service were good.
Had a 7pm reservation for 4 on a Thursday night. Arrived at 6:30 and was not seated until 7:30. Manager brought us a free glass of wine to apologize. Tasting room was completely packed. They really need towxpand the tasting room or buy the place across the hall to make additional room. Love the food and wine. Never had a bad meal. Place is just getting too crowded.
The food and wine us excellent. The atmosphere is Fabulous!
I love this restaurant and their food but, on this particular occasion, the waiter was so horrible that it almost ruined the night. If the chocolate cake hadn’t been incredible, as almost always, it would have hampered our desire to return. Don’t get Neil
Details? Inattentive, didn’t listen. Could not even refill water when asked. The pen he left with the bill didn’t work. He was not overworked, quiet time in the restaurant. He was just clueless.
Went there to have appetizers and wine for my Birthday. I ordered a few appetizers for the table, which were very good and presentation was nice. I also ordered my favorite appetizer, Blackened Ahi Tuna and it was delicious as usual. Would definitely recommend for a small gathering or even a romantic date. We had good service as well.
This is going to sound like a commercial ad, but it's simply the truth. Every time I dine at Cooper's Hawk Merrillville I am blown away by the consistently excellent cuisine and service.
On this visit (Saturday, October 13, 2018), my meal was super delicious, as always. I had the Pan Roasted Barramundi with Lemongrass Sauce. The dish was exquisite. Three days later, my taste buds are still happy. The fish was cooked to perfection, flaky and tender, and the sauce was to die for! The veggie was "Blistered Green Beans" and they were delicious as well. The starch was "Ginger Rice," which was very flavorful and a delightful addition to the meal. Portions were generous and beautifully plated.
My boyfriend ordered the Blackened Ahi Tuna, which came with Cilantro Citrus Rice and an Asian coleslaw. A wasabi sauce was drizzled on the plate, and he loved the heat! The dish was superb. We enjoyed a bottle of Cooper's Hawk White wine with our meal; a perfect complement to our seafood dishes.
We couldn't help indulging in dessert and ordered the Truffles with Wine. The plate contained three decadent truffles and came with a flight of three sweet wines. We were given a list of several wines to choose from. We were surprised at what our favorite turned out to be: rhubarb wine. Mmmm good!
Finally, I must say that the service provided by Andrea was most excellent. The restaurant was extremely busy, yet she was attentive and helpful. She knows the wines and menu well, and she made some great suggestions. She checked back on us now and then but was not intrusive. She deserves kudos for her excellent service.
The food was outstanding, but the service was not so great and the noise level was almost intolerable
So amazing!!! Never would have thought a spot in a local mall would be so incredible
We frequently go to Coopershawk as a wine club member. However our service on Friday when we attended was horrible. The server was overwhelmed. We shared a plate we never got a salad we never got soup she was very on attentive to us unlike most visits that we’ve had there
