We have been here a few times and I’ll just say that tonight an off night for CH. The meal energy up being free; but they never brought my appetizer and when they brought the meal I asked where the potatoes were. The waitress said they were under the fish and left. I showed my husband the plate and lifted the fish “no potatoes”. Kind of weird that the chef didn’t notice it him/herself.

Great food. Very slow uneven service. First were served the wrong orders after waiting too long. The four of us were not served at the same time. There were many staff and few clients dining so there was no reason for the experience we had.

Everything was really tasty and worth the money! Went to celebrate a birthday and didn't say anything, but waiter brought out chocolate covered strawberries with a candle. The restaurant did not feel tight or loud even though it was a Friday Night and they're were tons of people there. Island mojitos and Asian belly tostadas were amazing and I would go back again!

Great food and outdoor dining. Took a while for someone to greet us: outdoor patio couches at 8 pm. Ordered and made waiter aware that we needed to get something to go before we left, but when we were finishing up and ordered to go item he said the kitchen was closed at 9:30. We didn’t know that they closed so early and he didn’t tell us that at the beginning when we mentioned it. Overall awesome experience though as always.

I always enjoy Coopers Hawk but this time I didn’t like the food. The have taken one of my favs off of the menu, Crab Beignets. I tried the new crunchy shrimp and even after sending it back, it still tasted like it was burned and too hard. Please bring back the beignets!

They tried to bring out our entree before the appetizer. Remade the entrees & steak was very rare. Wine took 20 min to arrive. We ordered a to-go meal at the end of service, and they forgot to make it. Managers were very apologetic and comped the errors, but the overall experience was disappointing.

We love Cooper's Hawk in Reston. The food is fabulous and generally extends to lunch the next day. The wine selection is decent and I enjoy being able to do flights and taste different wines. The noise is my only complaint - it's quite loud in there, but not loud enough to keep us away. We're club members and quickly earn certificates for $$ off. I can't wait to go back.

My go-to place for lunch meetings. Always outstanding service and excellent meal. The (huge) entree salads are perfect for lunch. Convenient *free* garage parking just behind the restaurant.

incorrect order placed, so it took more time . Kale with pork chops too salty. replaced with asparagus . tho they comped it, make note to mention in case you order this and not want to waste time to go back and forth. Service is awesome . sparkling Rose is really good.

Good food and good wine. Almost everything we tasted was good. We tried 10 wines between us and were pleased with all of them. The food was also very tasty, bacon wrapped shrimp with guacamole was excellent! Will go back and recommend to other foodies!

On a slow Monday, lunch was a real treat at Cooper's Hawk. Service was very good and the uncrowded restaurant was quieter than usual. We ordered Mediterranean Salad with Shrimp and the Braised Short Rib Grilled Cheese with Tomato Soup. Both were excellent. The salad was dressed just right--not skimpy and not drowning in dressing. Very flavorful and made an excellent lunch. The short rib grilled cheese is a large, hearty meal for big appetites. My companion loved the soup and ate all of the sandwich. It was too good to leave behind.

I’ve been to Cooper’s Hawk many times, and I have never had service like I did on Friday night. The waitress didn’t explain the menu or the ‘experience’ to our friends that had never been to the restaurant before, the waitress would leave long periods of time (we saw her talking with other staff members by the bar), and then after asking another waiter for the dessert menu, she came over and asked if we wanted dessert and then when we were about to order said there were only 3 desserts left. I was shocked at how bad the service was, and felt that I had to apologize to our friends for selecting such a place.

Wife did not get offered a flower when everyone else’s did. Had to walk up mid dinner and ask for one for my wife. Server did not offer bread when every table around us had a basket. Server did not explain or offer the CH free wine tasting. Had to walk up to the bar to get a glass of wine since the server disappeared after the food was served. Food portions relatively small for the price.

I found Cooper's Hawk to be a bit meh. It wasn't great, it wasn't bad it was fine. I ordered a filet cooked medium with Betty's mashed potatoes. I got a filet that was cooked well done, the part that wasn't well done was medium well and it was chewy. The steak was seasoned nicely but cooked wrong and for $30+ it should be right. It also came out with mac and cheese which was not what I ordered. I tried the mac and it was okay but it had been baked, had about 1/4" of breadcrumbs on top and the ends of the pasta were baked hard and crunchy which was not great. Normally I'd flag our server right away and have it recooked or something but we'd waited quite a while for it to come out and our server was already kind of slow about coming over and checking in so I ate some of it. I saved about half to show the server it was wrong and he apologized and took the plate. I wasn't sure if he was going to have it re-made or comp that part of the meal.

We ordered a key lime pie for desert. It was also in the okay range, I wouldn't order again. The pie was pretty small and it had very little in the way of key lime filling. Most of the pie was graham cracker and the whole thing was buried under about 6 inches of whipped cream. The little bit of filling in the pie tasted good but there was just not enough of it.

In the end the manager comped the desert. Did that make up for messing up $34 of filet? Nope. The manager didn't even come over he/she just took it off the check so there was no discussion over it.

In the end it comes down to this. The food tastes pretty good but my order was wrong and I felt like the remedy was unsatisfactory. Service was meh but I chalk it up to a busy weekend, they had a ton of servers running around but it kind of seemed unorganized. Key lime pie is not a good dessert option unless you have a thing for graham crackers and whipped cream. Would I eat there again? maybe but probably not.

Overall experience was fine. There was a longer than necessary and desired wait to be greeted by a server (had to ask a hostess to find someone), but the server we got was awesome. It was Mother’s Day and a man was walking around handing out roses but never came to my table. I didn’t mind too much but it was the thought of being passed over that didn’t feel good (it was me, my husband and 4 kids so it was clear I was a Mom). Last year we were offered a feee glass of sparkling wine and a chocolate cover star berry (I think) so I was expecting something special for Moms this year too. Also the server never mentioned a chocolate covered strawberry was included in kids meal and we never got them. None of these things are a big deal but worth mentioning. Food is still wonderful.

It was our first time here. The food was good, but very small portions. The waiter forgot my Mom's Wine on Mother's Day, I had to remind him and she didn't get the wine until we were about to leave and still charged us for it.
