Another couple, and my husband and I decided to try Cooper's Hawk Winery. We were not disappointed. Our server, Christine, was very good. It was definitely bustling and noisy. The food was excellent. The salads, chopped wedges and Caesar, were very large. The appetizers, drunken shrimp, crab and lobster bisque, and Thai lettuce wraps, were very good. Trio of Medallions, Pistachio Crusted Grouper, Chicken Madeira, and Soy Ginger Salmon were absolutely delicious. We had the wine of the day which was very good. It was a first visit for three of us. We all will return.

Much better than your average upscale American fare. We are long-time wine club members and enjoy the wine tastings or choice of a free glass of wine at dinner. I would give 5 stars for everything but the last two times hubs and I went they served our appetizer before our drinks--it's a pet peeve. Cocktails ALWAYS before food!

Our server Joe was such a sweetheart. Loved seeing great young servers like himself. Ambiance, music, food, all 10/10 would recommend.

Service was great even knowing they were understaffed. We did not feel like we were waiting to long for service, food or drinks. We tried a sample of the wine of the month which was awesome. I truly am never disappointed going here and I'm going back again tonight with my girlfriends. Two nights in a row!

Food was ok. Not terrible but not great. Seemed a little pricey for just ok which makes it hard to want to go back. Our server was excellent but I was surprised when the hostess sat us so closely between two other occupied tables when we’re just getting through a pandemic and there were plenty of other tables available. Also, when making the reservation we were asked if it was a special occasion. We informed them it was for our anniversary. We weren’t expecting any special treatment but again, surprised that we were seated so closely between two other parties. I wouldn’t normally complain about seating but it was also extremely loud without having a full dining room. The noise level had the vibe of a cafeteria and it was difficult to hold a conversation without raising your voice. The service was great but every other aspect of the experience was just ok.

The server was great. She had a good sense of humor and was timely in her attention. She sensed that the lunch was an opportunity to catch up on an old relationship and she let us talk. The booth provided was quiet. The food was great and a compliment to the chef.
Thanks for providing a great meeting/eating place. I will return again!

Anniversary dinner
Made for a perfect evening being a wine club member and being able to use the “tasting” as a glass. We loved the glad (wine of the month) we ordered the bottle! Perfect Anniversary dinner

Usually we like to sit in the bar area for the ambiance and asked for this area when we made a reservation.. Apparently the bar area is now first come first serve again and we did not know it. We were seated in the dining room on the side area at a very tiny side table. Not ideal but had we known the bar was once again self serve, we would have shown up a bit earlier and sat there. Wasn’t real pleased about being seated so close to two large parties when there was plenty of other tables away from the noise. the thing that is always dependable is how good the food is. - ALwAys. That’s the most important thing about going out to eat in the end. Still my favorite restraurant.

Great place to have a glass of wine and meal without a lot of fuss. You can try the wine before you buy which is a plus.

We enjoyed celebrating our 42nd anniversary with dinner, almond champagne and dessert.
Had a table right next to us with 8 ladies who were very chatty and loud which was a little disappointing but the food and service were outstanding!

Coopers is the place to go and get good food and wine as well as artisan cocktails. Service is excellent. Now that the restrictions are lifted it will probably become very busy. Best to have a reservation.

We did a wine tasting first with friends that had never been to Cooper's Hawk. So much fun! Then we went upstairs and Patrick started us with drink orders and water. Then James took over and he was as friendly and helpful as Patrick! We had 3 appetizers, all of us had full meals, and we finished with desserts. Our friends are in love with the egg rolls, flatbread, and pretzel bread but ate their meals like they hadn't eaten in a month! We all had wine samplers and it was so fun! They already want to know when we're going to take them back!

As always, we enjoyed our dining experience and service was great! We took our kids for the first time and they loved it. Our youngest is 7 and is quite a picky eater and even he gave it 5 stars. The meatball app was the family favorite and my gnocchi carbonara was fantastic. Looking forward to coming back!

SO Delicious! Two of us ate lunch there yesterday. The lemon sauce on Ellie's Chicken Piccata was creamy, nice capers, and luscious lemon flavor; but not overpowering. I couldn't make up my mind about which white wine to have, so the server brought me two to taste. No extra charge & a very nice touch. My husband reports that his Bourbon Glazed Pork Chop was tender and the sauce delicious. We ordered lunch-size portions, but still had two take-home containers. When we go back for dinner, we may have to have just appetizers! We are also wine club members, so we picked up the June wine choice and bought two bottles of the Viognier I had with lunch. An excellent experience all around.

No disappointment here, consistently good food and service with a wide choice of items and expansive outdoor seating. The biggest challenge is in what to order from so many tempting choices, from wines and appetizers to salads and sandwiches, entrees, and desserts—It’s all good! Attentive but not intrusive service. It’s becoming one of my favorites.
