Stephon was amazing!! Food was good. Value was good. Seem we got seated next to everyone else when they could have been more spread out but maybe that’s because of staffing. Really enjoyed it and will be back again

The food is fabulous and the atmosphere is fun. Reservations available for the outdoor patio as well as indoors. Outdoor service was noticeably slower than my experiences indoors, but a nice evening overall.

Overall, the ease in reserving the table and the food, service, etc was very good. Either we were a little hungry or the waiter took a while to take our order. I am really not complaining only an observation. The food was delicious and we were treated with etiquette.

EXCELLENT experience! It was my mom’s birthday and our experience made it so special. We couldn’t have asked for better service. Our wonderful server, Christopher, really went above and beyond! Our food was of course delicious, as usual!

If you're curious but not serious about wine, this is a fun place. They sell only their label of wine, and in truth it's factory-assembled-in-Chicago, highly manipulated stuff that isn't likely to please "wine people." [The waiter said they sent from grapes from vineyards in Europe, but that can't possibly be true. The U.S. maybe.]

That said, if you like wine but aren't all geeked out about it -- like you go into the liquor store to get wine for a dinner party and don't know where to start, and wind up buying chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon with nice labels, which was me until I got the wine bug just 6 months ago, so I know whereof I speak -- you'll probably have fun with the flights, varieties, tastes you can get, etc. They tend to be sweet, and not polished. But Cooper's Hawk Inc. has 47 restaurants or something and they need to cater to popular tastes and pump out a ton of the stuff. Given that, it's a noble effort.

As for the food: It's a big, crazily eclectic menu, featuring Thai, Mexican, Italian, Mediterranean, and farm-to-table-y dishes and more. All of it was okay. We had the Barramundi [dry] and Thai lettuce wraps [fun to assemble!], and both were fine, though the recipes felt like they came out of a factory too. Execution was uninspired, but I tend to grade on a Covid curve for service and cooking these days. Our waiter was genial but not well-informed.

When you enter you pass through a big room with a "Napa-style" tasting room, with stand-up service that appears popular with the locals and those waiting for tables. You also pass through a gift shop, a sort of high-end Cracker Barrel vibe.

The chain was purchased by a hedge fund not long ago -- good for the founders! -- which means they're under pressure to grow and who knows how scalable this thing is without the wine going totally to hell. Their waiters push the wine club, and to his credit ours seemed a bit embarrassed to do so. They need additional revenue streams. Who among us doesn't?

Very disappointed.
The salad, chopped wedge was superb. Loved the dressing and blue cheese.
The tri medallions were terrible. The meat was prepared properly, but the three “sauces” weren’t sauces at all, but globs of congealed flavoring, dropped on top, and not even warm. The asparagus spear a were so overdone, they resembled pale green, limp, lifeless, spears, with no fiberous consistency.

We went to Cooper's Hawk for my mother's 90th birthday. The food was excellent and the service even more so. Antonio, even though he is a rookie server, made sure all of our needs were met. We had an incredible fun filled evening. I will definitely be returning to lunch/dinner there.

Everything was excellent! We arrived early for our reservation but were able to be seated quickly. Staff is courteous, efficient and professional. Food and wine perfectly complimented each other. Staff suggestions were ordered and couldn’t have been better. From the pot stickers with Asian slaw, the triple tenderloin, steak salad, surf & turf - everything was well presented and perfectly spiced.

As a vegan who enjoys going to a local bar and restaurant , I would like to see more varieties of vegan options too include breads and salads. Not vegetarian which includes dairy products, but plant based options

The service I got was outstanding. I bought a friend to your Restaurant for her birthday. They even gave her a birthday treat at the end of our birthday luncheon. She wrote me a letter saying she had a great experience.
