We had a team dinner her, and whilst I have been here many times this time was only average. I had an excellent steak but some of my colleagues were unimpressed with their food, to the point we were not billed for one meal. The wine is excellent, particularly with their on table serving carafe!

I was visiting the area for business and I was hungry for a steak. The first restaurant that came to my mind was Cooper's. The food especially the NY strip steak was great. I was lucky that this kind of steak was special that day. You cannot go wrong eating at this place.

First we are wine club members so this review is really about the second of our 2 visits to this location. Although a bit out of the way (about 20-30 minutes from base), if you are looking to take your new sailor out after go here. It is a bit more upscale, but the experience we had was wonderful, they...

Service was very slow the order came to the table wrong twice. The manager offered free desert and remove the cost of the appetizers which they didn't. Food was okay but the service spoiled the experience. Still waiting for the bill for over 20 minutes

The Cooper's Hawk wines are very, very nice and we have sampled many of their different varieties both Red and White. No matter if you tend to prefer bold complex Big Reds or the light crisp flavour of sparkling white Blanc du Blanc, they have something for everyone. The food is well prepared too with many menu choices to select... More

Always crowded but IDK why. Is good but not worth the jostling---to get a table/service/at the $ May be a good place for an afternoon online meetup. But the wine is mediocre and there is nothing romantic about the dinner experience. Is just another "good" restaurant capitalizing on its brand to mass produce volume $.

We had a gift certificate and decided to eat here since our hotel was next door. I loved the atmosphere, we made a reservation and loved the dining area. I just wished the seating was better as my wife had a hard time fitting in the booth.

Great food, bustling atmosphere, fair prices, fun tasting room, wine............not so good. Because I have a developed palate, unfortunately the wine was very disappointing to me. However, they sell a lot of wine. Therefore, for those who are not as discriminating, it may be fine.

I visited Coopershawk to purchase a bottle of wine at the Wheeling location. The employee said "Wait I have to answer the phone first." So while I am standing there, the only person in line, he answers the phone and proceeds to talk for 5 minutes. Why he could not talk and ring up my one bottle of wine purchase... More

A few friends and I ate at Cooper’s Hawk Winery for lunch, and overall, the place seemed brand new but the wines were just not good, which sort of defeats the whole purpose of coming to a winery and having food pairings. I wasn't familiar with this winery or restaurant group before I went here, but the restaurant itself seems... More
