Except for table and then booth (for 6) was in the noisiest place in restaurant, everything else was perfect.

The appetizer took 45 minutes to come out, it was crispy Brussels sprouts. Then the main courses took a long time after the appetizer was finished. I had to ask the server three times to check our wine club membership for any discounts, once he checked he did find the discount.

I shouldn’t have to insist on checking the wine club membership, the server should do it automatically and be pleased to use them. I also had to ensure he didn’t mix our cards up because he had three in his hand. The time on food was “because someone stole his appetizer” hard to know if that’s true. Either way a visit from the manager would have been nice. I overheard the table behind and in front of me voicing concerns about time and a manager never visited their table either.

We love being member’s and the food, however we will be rethinking the membership due to the lack of customer service.

I dine out often and was disappointed by the wait time and service. Also, the table we were given was awful. It was near an exit door and in a cold area. I was really looking forward to going there since it was my birthday. We didn’t tell the hostess or waitstaff until the end of the meal. Perhaps, our experience would have been better. I thought being a VIP with Open Table that our service would have been great like all the other times I dine, but not here. It will be awhile before I go back here again. On a positive note the food was good.

Worst experience I’ve had in a while. Found hair in the butter. Manager said “It’s made in bulk batches” so basically the whole batch was full hairs 🤢. Got our drinks, which is probably the only reason we stayed. Food took a long time, but it’s Saturday night. Ordered the Chimichurri steak. Taste like a piece of bark with stale truffle fries. Probably stayed under heat lamp to long. I gave up and ordered a burger. If it wasn’t for my wine club membership, and the bacon shrimp appetizer, I’d would of left.

Hire back the previous line chef. This new one sucks!

We had reservations for a birthday dinner and were seated a little ahead of our scheduled time. We ordered the pork belly tostadas as an appetizer and split the short ribs meal and it was more than enough for us. The recommended pairing of the CabZin was on point. We will definitely be dining here again and highly recommend others to give this place a try!

Always look forward to the monthly dinner specials paired with the wine of the month. Cooper's Hawk had a superior business model, and one that can't be matched for wine club members. I pursuade my non-wine drinking husband to come here with me at least twice a month!

Although the restaurant is packed and the serviced is strained because of the volume, the food was tasty and the wine was great. Suggest reservations before 6 or after 8 for reduced crowds and more personalized service

I cannot complain about anything with my experience at a Cooper’s Hawk on Saturday. My food was great and our service was top notch!
My only complaint would be my friend order her trio gilets medium and they definitely came out well done. Our waiter took care of everything for and within a few minutes she has a new plate with her filets cooked as requested.
CH has always been a very consistent meal with good wine.

We had a reservation but showed up a bit early, so we decided to sit at the bar and gave up our table. Food was good a usual and the staff was friendly and helpful. We could not ask for much more we will be back again soon.

I took a client here for a business meeting. The service was so-so...I felt rushed the entire time. We kept being asked if we wanted to order and clearly we were having a meeting. My colleague has a severe nut allergy that we informed our server about. His food ended up coming out covered in pistachios and thankfully I saw the nuts and stopped him from eating his meal. It then took over 20 minutes for him to get his food since they had to make it again. I don’t understand how this could happen, especially since we informed our server that he was highly allergic. The food was good but overall it was a very fair experience. Thankfully, my colleague didn’t eat his food with nuts all over it. We really avoided a disaster. The overall meal and service could have been a lot better.

We were not dining at CH as often as we had when we joined, and we almost terminated the subscription however, this dinner with Bree Babrock and our Waiter Anton was simply fabulous. We stuck to our Life Balance selections with a crisp Voignier white really made our Date Night. We shall remain as members.

The service was poor. We did a tasting first and we had to wait about 10 minutes between each poor. There weren’t that many people doing tastings and 3 people behind the bar. Our server was not personable and seemed annoyed that we were t making a decision on food fast enough (he wanted to know our drinks, apps, main course in the first go). He also forgot to put our appetizer order in and forgot to bring the bottle of wine we ordered. I had to track him down 30 minutes into the meal to ask why we never got our wine or apps. He snapped at me that they were coming. Then arrived at our table 20 minutes later without the wine or appetizer and asked if we wanted dessert.

We are members here and have never had such a bad experience.

Had a delicious lunch for four. My dish was the shrimp and scallops risotto that was absolutely delicious. My husband had the meatballs and were scrumptious as usual. Our son had the chicken sandwich and my daughter in law had the Parmesan chicken. They were very happy with their food as well. Service was excellent. We did a wine tasting after the meal. Gary and Michael did an amazing job pouring and explaining our wine tastings.

Everything was actually very good. We had a small issue of one meal coming out somewhat cold but it was resolved. Considering how busy it was the service was very good.

The food was good, but the ambiance was awful. I take my daughter and daughters-in-law there for their birthdays every year after our spa experience. We will look for another place next year as the we were stuck right next to the bar at a table and felt like we were on display. It was very uncomfortable, as well as too brightly lit and too noisy. When we asked for a booth, they said there were not any available, but a few minutes later there were people being sat a booths. I spend way too much money there to have our experience not be a good one.

Our 6 person table was right next to the bathrooms and bar, which made having a conversation challenging, especially with my hard-of-hearing, elderly parents, but I appreciated the fact that we were able to make a reservation, instead of the usual "call ahead" process. My crabcake was underwhelming, but I blame myself, as I have very high standards regarding crabcakes, and should have asked if the chef uses lump crabmeat. The rest of the food was very good. My steak was cooked perfectly, and the brussels sprouts appetizer was delicious. Our wine was good, and our waiter was excellent.
