The potstickers are to die for! I could have made a meal of them. The pretzel bread is yummy. My friend & I split 2 entrees - the shrimp & scallop risotto & the barramundi with ginger rice with lemongrass sauce. Both were delicious. All were paired with the CH Sauvignon Blanc-perfect on a hot summer night. It was our server’s first week on the job & she did a great job. All in all - a wonderful night out. I just wish that they were opening a restaurant closer to my neighborhood. Reston is a hike from Alexandria.

Love the Reston location. We are wine club members and their reward program is excellent. The shrimp and scallop risotto was amazing.

Food was delicious; it took our server a long time to take our orders, but once we got past that, everything was good. We sat outside at a table that was kind of away from the other tables, which was fine I guess. Also seemed kind of pricey, but the food and wine were both delicious.

Food was great, as always. Server was great at first but seemed to disappear towards the end. Another server helped & was wonderful. Very noisy that Friday night - hard to hear each other. Overall, very good experience.

Our server (Dunn) was fun and animated. The tastings he brought to the table convinced me to increase my membership. We will be back soon!

The food and service has always been exceptional. However, I do think it will require patience as we return to normal. Our service this time was clearly intermittent at best, perhaps because of limited staff in the early afternoon? There were very few tables in the indoor seating yet lots of waiting. (waited for initial service, waited to order, waited to receive food, waited for drink refill, waited for check) We will keep returning but something to keep in mind.

After multiple positive visits, this one ranks at the bottom. Our service was slow, drinks weren’t refilled (and we were dining outside on a hot day), and my lunch date’s food was served with neither of the two requests she had for dietary reasons abided by. It had to be fully remade, so we essentially ate separately, extending our work lunch break. Our server never apologized for the error. Oh, and there was a piece of foil in my super yummy risotto. I’ll be back only because of previous positive experiences.

Service is excellent as usual. I find the menu to be very boring and selection is also limited. Quality of food is reasonable, average, really nothing that great to rave about. Otherwise, overall experience was above average for great service and very average food and selection.

Food never disappoints! Service was a bit slow, but they only had one person covering a pretty large area, so it was understandable.

First - overall we enjoyed out time at Coopers Hawk as usual. But service was not up to par. We were met promptly by our waitress and our drinks and appetizer arrived in good order. Then ordered our entrees. Bread was delivered to other tables but not ours. We asked a host who was circulating but to no avail. Then our waitress disappeared. When our entrees arrived we asked for bread again - and it came and the waiter (not our original server) apologized and offered a free refill to our drinks. I asked for a glass of wine instead which he said would be on the house. Food was good (although they were out of my first choice). No one ever came by to refill water which was empty for both of us. Waitress reappeared at end of meal to say manager had pulled her from the floor to work the bar (ah that is what happened!). Waited a bit for our check. When we got it - my wine was on it (not comped as promised). So overall not great (wait for bread, no water refill, disappearing waitress with no information, offer of free glass of wine and then charged). I think they are understaffed. I assume it will get better as they catch up to the reopening. Also I hope they return to the larger menu - still working from the limited one they debuted during COVID.

Food and service is fairly consistent. Better than most chain restaurants in what they offer (good variety to suit any taste) and the quality of the food.
Was surprised none of the staff wore masks, although we did see some patrons still wearing them going in and out as they're walking to and from their tables.

Cooper’s Hawk was wonderful as always. Food was delicious. We love most things on the menu. Personally, we’re not a fan of their risottos but that might be personal taste. Rafael, our server, knew how to gauge his customers and what they wanted. We are a member of their wine club and always leave feeling like we got a deal on dinner.

The last two visits to the Reston Cooper's Hawk have resulted in the same issue. Slow service after being seated. We waited at least ten minutes before anyone came to our table.

Service, food, and ambience was phenomenal. Essence was our server. She was training a new server, Joe. They were attentive and got recommendations from the sommelier. Essence made sure to check my ID before processing my credit card.

First time diner at Cooper's. Everything was outstanding. Was a little darker than maybe I would have liked, but that's probably my only complaint. Will definitely return.

I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The Coopers Hawk Margarita was delicious! Everyone loved the Surf & Turf-- Prime Churrasco Grilled Steak w/Salmon. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable.

Love this place. The environment and energy level was high. It was crowded and obviously just getting back to real business after this past year. The food was delicious and the service considering they are understaffed was great. They’re working hard and you can tell everyone is so happy to be back to some kind of normal.
