We sat outside on the patio and it was quiet and intimate. One of the specials was the roadhouse burger and it was delicious! Wine was great as always and the service was also quality.

The service and food were very good. The manager, Darcy, dealt graciously with several seating number changes. Our server was excellent (great job, Max!) and the gluten free menu had a dairy-free option for our party member who needed both. The seating was so-so (high traffic area) and noise level a tad loud. Not enough to ruin anyone's experience.

Had an early dinner so it wasn't too crowded in the window area yet. Food was delicious as always and service was great. It was pretty cold when we first sat down, but when we mentioned the temperature to the waiter he quickly adjusted it so it warmed up. Overall another great experience at Cooper's Hawk.

Chicken madeira was very good but grouper sauce was very salty and the fish
pieces were thin more like flounder than grouper which in my experience is a
much thicker piece of fish.
Waiter was helpful but service seemed slow.

The food was very salty and the waiter wasn’t polite. He never smiled or had conversations with us. I understand he was busy but that’s what makes it a good experience.

First time dining here. Great service, great space, and enjoyable (reasonably-priced) wine flight tastings --- but very mediocre food. The pistachio-encrusted grouper was especially disappointing (soggy, greasy mush). Looks like we'll be sticking with the local NoVA chain of Great American restaurants for our fish dishes (always well-prepared and tasty). Cooper's Hawk has a huge menu (and perhaps that's part of the problem). We'll try them again - and hope for a better experience on the food front.

Pariss was exceptional! He guided us through the menu and had a wonderful sense of humor (which resonated very well with my enthusiastic group). A portion of my group did a wine tasting prior to dinner and Brian saved their day! (apparently the original wine pourer wasn’t able to answer some of their questions so Brian was brought it and my friends said he hit a grand slam). The food and wine were sublime. Definitely recommend Coopers Hawk for special/celebratory occasions. Thank you for a memorable experience!

My reservation was there yet hostess sat us at wrong table. I run a lunch time group of ladies and as a result a new member could not find us. The waiter for the table was not accommodating whatsoever. We had to keep chasing him for service.

We had a mini reunion of friends for lunch on a weekday. The waiter was very accommodating for various food needs, gave good reviews of the food and wine. Was spot-on for our wine selection. The menu had many twists on favorite lunch meals which made it desirable to return. The food was very fresh and dessert looked like it had just been handmade right for our order. All delicious. Wish I had indeed done the Wine Club as he had suggested.

Been here twice and the food is always very good. Love the menu and I have yet to be disappointed with anything on the menu. Service is definitely lacking though, each time we've visited there have been a few service issues. First visit a server accidentally broke a glass at our table on my friend's plate, and everyone understands that accidents happen, but no manager touched the table, no food was remade, serious mis-step in service. Our last visit was just as impressive concerning the menu selections just marred by unattentive and slow service.

The setup of the restaurant is attractive and the ambience is fine. Our reservations were honored right on time. We were a little early, but free tastings of two wines were provided while we waited. The appetizers we had were very large, enough for more than two people. Two of our party ordered barramundi, and the fish arrived a bit overcooked; they weren't bad, but they could have been better.

Service was not good that evening. Appetizers came, but we had to wait for silverware. Wine decanter came but had to wait for the wine. Not a great experience as we were treating friends from Canada.

Jonathon is over the top attentive and hilarious and we try to sit at his table for service. The overall ambiance is electric and the buzz is contagious..we are a small group of 4 ladies who meet monthly and can’t imagine being anywhere else. The wine is delicious and the apps are soooo good. We love the vibe and the fact that they allow happy hour in the dining room..It’s better than therapy!

My fiancé and I celebrated our anniversary at Cooper Hawk, and I plan to make this a regular date night. Our server, Jeff, was fabulous and gave us great wine and dinner suggestions, plus champagne and truffles on the house to finish our evening. We look forward to many more date nights at Cooper Hawk!

Everything was superb, the greeting, food, service, just fantastic! I should emphasize the food was outstanding! I mentioned to the waiter that I had brought my son there for his birthday (25th), and he had the kitchen fix a little something for him-on the house, which was over the top service!

We will return and I definitely recommend Cooper's Hawk in Reston, VA!

Thank you for a great experience Cooper's Hawk!
