Server was excellent.
A little more pricier than I would have liked to pay for.

I've had very good experiences visiting Cooper's Hawk locations for tastings and dinner in the past, but i will be continuing to go to the Oak Park location because of the OUTSTANDING experience I've had the last two times I've been there. The staff is so nice and I feel comfortable every step of the way.
Dinner was delicious and the presentation is also on par with the service.
I recommend this location to anyone i talk to.

I highly recommend Coopers Hawk for diners with gluten sensitivity or celiac disease. Their extensive gluten free menu is amazing & they will also do substitutions if able.

We actually stumbled upon this restaurant. We started with a bottle of wine then shared the meatballs & fried calamari. Both were delicious. We had the filet mignon, mac n cheese, Parmesan fries, asparagus, and mashed potatoes. All were well cooked. Our server was awesome and made recommendations. Overall, wonderful experience.

Enjoyed a superbly prepared "comfort food" dinner of short ribs and rigatoni Bolognese. We both enjoyed our dinners, and the ample portions allowed us to make a second meal of it. Waiter gave very good recommendations for wine pairing. Nice energy on a Friday night, but not loud or overbearing. Bar scene was lively and fun to walk through but layout is such that the noise from the bar does not carry through to the dining room.

A fun evening with friends. Food was good and service was attentive. Loved our Apps - Brussels sprouts and calamari. Entree good but salmon a little over cooked. The loud ladies next to us that started screaming obscenities when water was spilt certainly effected the rating and our time. They were rude to staff and our table . Very disappointing. The staff did handle it well when the situation could have escalated.

Dinner was good, it has been hit or miss lately. It gets very loud in the dining area. Be sure to make a reservation as it fills up fast!

Our server Deja was amazing and knowledgeable. The ambiance was nice for an afternoon lunch. But the food was unseasoned and lacked flavor all around. We would’ve been better off with appetizers.

We love Cooper's Hawk, however, whenever we come to this location something seems to go wrong. Once we ordered bottles of wine from our membership and they sent us home with red sangria instead of white. This most recent time I asked for a bottle of Red Sangria and when she served me it was Blueberry. I told my husband this wine tastes bitter and sure enough when we went to package up what was left, it was blueberry! The asparagus was 4 small straggly pieces and she offered to get new ones before I said anything, which was nice. She brought four more and they were just as small. In fact, she felt so bad they were tiny that she brought us a dessert on the house. It was good, we were expecting the cookie to be warm since it's on a cast iron pan, but it was room temp. Would have been better warmed! Still good regardless the food never disappoints flavor-wise.

This use to be our favorite location. But now I am not sure if I would return. The people that showed us this place was with us that night and they even said they will not be coming back. Not sure, what has happen to management but this location keeps getting worst. The manager was rude at the front desk and complain when I requested a booth. Normally, I do not mind where we sit. But I was celebrating my wife's birthday. This place has great food and wine but the front staff is too bitter. Although, our server "Sarrah" was wonderful. I would return just because of her service.

This was my third time visiting Cooper's Hawk, and it's becoming one of my faves! We ordered the drunken shrimp and calamari appetizers, per our server's recommendation. I don't eat bacon so I skipped the shrimp, but the rest of my family loved it. And I was a huge fan of the calamari! It's marinated in this sweet glaze that really takes it up for a notch. I ordered the veggie enchiladas for my entree. My sister got the surf & turf and my mom had the scallop risotto. I loved my dish - my family thought their's was good but did not meet their expectations. They'll have to try new dishes next time. Finally, our waiter was very attentive and friendly! It was a great night overall. We'll definitely return

I was surprised to see the restaurant empty and could not get a table. Sat at the bar table and made a reservation for the next 15 min and the reservation beat my drink to the table. Thank goodness for open table.

The salad ingredients were fairly low quality. I had a salad and a glass of wine and paid $33. In the end, I felt I could have gotten a more satisfying meal elsewhere for much less.

Always great food and great service, don’t feel the same about the wine tasting service. Sometimes I feel like you are bothering them. I’ve stopped doing the tasting for that reason.

When I made the reservation, I asked for a certain booth but my request was not honored. The noise level was almost painful. The food was tasty and ample. The big problem was with the waiter, he acted like it was his first day on the job.

My daughter and I had a mother/daughter date, as we celebrated Sweetest Day. The experience was good. Only thing is a fly fell in my glass of wine, but the server quickly addressed the problem, and provided me with a new glass of wine. We enjoyed ourselves and my daughter loved the food.

Our server at table was amazing however the server at the wine bar was rude and looked like she would rather not be there. Same for the hostess. The noise level is always the same there— very loud. But the food is great and that’s why we go, though we don’t stay past our meal.

Excellent menu selections for lunch. Separate selections for those wanting a lighter lunch. Calorie count is provided. Options available for those wanting to eliminate bread and starches. However one person in our group had a beef burger with all the trimmings He ate it all.
