Cooper's Hawk Winery & Restaurant - Oak Park
Located in historic Scoville Square, we're within walking distance of the Frank Lloyd Wright and Hemingway attractions. A wide variety of wines, a full bar and a "classy, yet casual" aura makes us the perfect place to drop in for a meal, a brief afternoon indulgence or a late night cappuccino and dessert.

I'm sad to see Café Winberie in Oak Park, IL go. When my kids were young, this was the only restaurant we went to, due to their multiple food allergies. Winberie was our 'dining room' away from home. The former chef knew my kids by name, and knew which dish to make them.
I have been going to Winberie's for many years. Too bad it is closing at year end.
I feel sorry that this Oak Park landmark is closing. We went for a goodbye lunch to reminisce about all the good times we have had there. Unfortunately, it was understaffed (no surprises there) and the overcooked hamburgers took 45 minutes to arrive. A sad ending for a once reliably good restaurant.
If the Resturant was no closing on 12/28/2019, I would have complained to management. When the 4 people in my party ordered it took 45 minutes for the food to come and the waiter only came by once to tell us that they were so crowded today (we had a 12 noon reservation) that they were way behind. When our food did come, they brought out two orders, a few minutes later another order and 10 minutes later the final order. This was totally uncalled for and if they were to continue to remain open I would never go there again.
My family has enjoyed dining at Winberie’s for the past 30 years. Will miss it terribly!!!
Lively Sunday evening - get in there before they close at the end of the year! They will be missed.
They are closing at the end of the month so a poor review does not really mean anything. We had a reservation for 3 as we had my stepson visiting. It was a madhouse and they were not really honoring reservations. We waited and waited well past our reservation and one of the reception girls kept rewriting the wait list and putting other parties names in front of ours...the list kept getting longer...so not happy with Winberies.
We arrived for reservation at 11:30 but were seated at noon and lots of food items were missing and never replaced, including roast at carving station, whipped cream and fruit toppings at waffle station, and even basics like rice. Very disappointed and we brought family for celebration.
Always good food. And wait staff is usually very friendly and helpful.
Winberie’s is a classy casual dining place. The good has been consistently good for as long as we have gone there over the past 25 years. The complimentary bread is outstanding. We had the chicken Boursin pasta special which was creAmy and good,and a penne pasta dish from the regular menu. Service was a bit pokey since the place was filled by 7.
We will miss this place when it closes at the end of the month.
Lovely place and food. HORRIBLE SERVICE made us late for our concert, and we had alerted our server to our timeline. I could go into detail, but, having read other reviews stating the same problem. Been wanting to come here for years; unfortunately, never again if I can avoid it.
Great lunch experience. Neighborhood gem! Service was fabulous
Great local restaurant to get together with friends. We didn't feel rushed and were able to enjoy good food and catch up with friends
I truly enjoyed the Sunday Brunch - great variety of food offered.
I'm glad so many others had a good experience here, but my time here was pretty crappy from the moment we sat down. I dont know if this is typical, but we had two different servers flip flopping throughout the meal, and neither of them asked if we wanted another glass of wine or dessert. Just plopped the bill on the table and walked away. Once we walked back to the car I realized why we had such terrible service.... there was our waitress waiting for the elevator at the parking garage leaving before us, she must have been in too much of a rush to actually do her job.
Winberie's is typically a real winner (pun intended). We have eaten here several times and had exceptional service and food! This past time the server was super friendly and fun, but she also made some errors in our requests. They were fixed quickly, but still a bump down from the typical 5 Star service we usually get there. We'll be back, but we will likely as for a different server.
I forgot to have my card punched! There were 11 of us!
The food was great the atmosphere was very pleasant and the service was excellent. I will definitely return.
Warm Cozy environment, diverse menu and great food.
Excellent food & service. Very pleasant relaxing atmosphere. Prices are reasonable . Large portions.
Haven’t been there in a while, but definitely will go back! Food was tasty, server was knowledgeable, atmosphere was nice. All-around great evening!
Ive been visiting from out of state for the last two weeks I have eaten at Winberies 3 times. The food and service were great. Thank you for a wonderful time.
We loved having so many options in the brunch buffet. They will also prepare omelettes and eggs benedict to order as part of the prix fix. Servers at the buffet were knowledgeable and helpful. Tableside servers were stretched thin and couldn't check on beverages very often.
Good place for brunch with kids! Something to eat for everyone.
My husband 50th Birthday
Food was good, not great. Tables/decor could use an update. Server was very nice but hard to track down for refills on coffee (never actually got one) and the bill. Brunch was a little pricey again given the quality.
Everything was delicious. Our server was a young man who was new and he was outstanding. He was very attentive. I think his name was Noah blondish hair. I live going there just parking crazy. That is why we do Wed or Thurs nights
Friendly helpful service. The pick three lunch option is fabulous!
Excellent, attentive service. Delicious, generously portioned, entrees. Out of this world Mulligatawny soup. I could have made a meal out of the bread and soup alone! Our server was incredible. Drinks/pours were generous. We had been there once last winter .... I'm sure we'll be back more.
Five of us met for a reunion of sorts (we'd all worked at the same org.) And we had a fabulous time. Perfect service, delicious food and we never felt rushed. Thank you for a memorable evening!
Everything was top notch at this very comfortable and convenient restaurant. The lunch menu has many options from which to enjoy. The "pick three" was a great choice: soup. half a sandwich (large), and a side (salad, vegetables, fries, etc.). Our server was terrific. Highly recommend for a good value, tasty, pleasant meal.
My friend really liked the mac and cheese. My quiche wasn't good. It wasn't fresh and it wasn't hot enough and it was a small serving.
I had the rice bowl with chicken For the first time and it was fantastic.
Attentive waiters, good service, reasonable prices for the quality--whst's not to like.
Great place! Good food, good service. Up beat atmosphere. Our group requested multiple substitutions and the server was happy to accommodate.
Server did not follow explicit directions ie having the to go request ready in a half hour after food arrived. I needed to leave but he hadn’t placed the to go order yet.
Also, I was planning to give the server a 20% tip but he came back with no change so he would receive a 26% tip.
If he had honored my earlier request so I could leave in a timely manner I wouldn’t think twice. But don’t manipulate me into tipping more....
Consistently good food and service. can always count on Winberies
Always a solid choice; good menu and service.
Everything was very nice. Food was good, service was great. Definitely would go again.
