Cooper's Hawk Winery & Restaurant - Oak Park
This is the 5th Cooper”s Hawk I’ve been to. My Tortilla Soup was not at all like the other 4 locations. I thought all the recipes were the same at all locations?
Fabulous food and service! Highly recommend for a good night out with friends or for a date!
Cooper's Hawk Winery and Restaurant was an amazing find. My wife and I were looking for something different and we certainly found it. their approach to wines was excellent. They allow you to sample a wine before buying, sample multiple wines in a flight, and provide recommendations for pairing with food. Our food was well-prepared and they even have a more health conscious variety of the same dishes that seemed to lack nothing from the original. We recommend Cooper's Hawk highly and have already done so to family and friends. Reservations are a must!
Our first experience here, We made dinner reservations for Saturday night 9:15 pm days in advance. We checked in with the host at 9:10 pm, she informed us that they were running a couple minutes behind and asked if we would wait. Fast-forward 35 min and we were still waiting to be seated. Meanwhile, my wife and I watched 3 other patrons go up and complain about the wait. One guy even said that he had been waiting 2 hours! We were finally seated at almost 10pm, ordered apps and entrees. Our apps arrived promptly and we were told our entrees would be out shortly. 20 min later our waiter walks by our table and says let me go check on your order... 5 min later he walks back to our table and tells my wife, we ran out of the filet mignon, by this time is was 10:48 and the restaurant closed at 11:30. We were not given any kind of apology for the inconvenience or even a comped drink. Not a good first impression, hopefully the other locations are operated under better management.
This was the last time we came to this location.
Waited 45 minutes for fish and steak, when it did come the sides were wrong and the steak WAS EXTREMELY OVERCOOKED, chewy and cold. I pointed it out to the waiter and he told me I would have to wait another 35 minutes to eat. My dish was taken care of which was great, but that should have not have happened in the first place. My partner's steak, when it came it looked chared we were right half of it was not edible. Between waiting 20 minutes for a drink and then 45 minutes for fish and steak, we will never come here again, and we will strongly advise everyone we know not to go there. ALSO what kind of management runs out of lobster, creme brulee.
Just bad and disappointing.
Server got 2 orders wrong and food took too long. Steak was over cooked.
The food and service were outstanding. All eight of us enjoyed three appetizers - Brussels sprouts, calamari, and egg rolls. Everyone agreed their entrees were delicious, too. It was a busy Saturday evening, but we were not rushed through the meal. Our server, Michael, was informative, fun, and extremely patient. Thanks for a great evening!
Consistently good food and wine from a broad menu. Every dish I've tried and every glass I've tasted has been excellent. A class act for a growing chain.
Great server deb. Explained the wine choices. Good was very good. Beer nice and cokd
First time there and I really enjoyed myself the service was amazing!!!!! Me and my party had a great time and will be coming back soon
Definitely yes great time enjoy myself .............................................
We came here to Celebrating our anniversary. We ordered our food promptly. Everything was nice & hot, plus flavorful. I am also a club member & the wine of the month was excellent.
Wonderful food and wine selection.
It was great! I was on a date and it was absolutely delicious and the service was excellent.

Food was amazing our server was the most friendly. Everyone wished us happy Valentine’s Day. The good was on time and the wine was delicious
Food was great, wine was awesome and most of all the atmosphere was fantastic. See you soon
We’ve been a Coopers Hawk one other time, different location. Once again very impressed with the quality of the food and the great service.
When you hear about Coopers Hawk you hear about wine. We aren’t into wine and this is still one of our favorite restaurants.
We were here for Valentines Day. A lot of places try to maximize revenue on a holiday by cramming as many people in as they can. Not the case here. The quality was still there. We had a wonderful time!
Service was great not a wait for any food or drinks had a fantastic time
Loved the food, service and ambiance. The only downside is you have to pay to park.
It took 10 min to be seated and restaurant was not busy. Staffing was poor and did not come back to our table after we were seated. We departed after 10 mins with no service or attention to us. We have been here in the past with no issues. Poor management and service...
The staff and service was awesome. Great conversation and recommendations from our server. Can’t wait to be back!
Great food and service. I will be back when I pick up my wine.
Very nice place to eat and enjoy they winery selection.
We had a wonderful time!! We will be visiting again.
Excellent food and outstanding service. Will definitely be back!!!!
The service was ok, server was not attentive, had to wait over 8 minutes to Order a drink, didn’t even had a chance to order dessert. Very quick to take a order just for one couple and not even ask every one else. A total off 8 people it felt like only one couple was being attended too.
Always great food no matter which location you choose. It's our "Go to" place for all our celebrations
Wow! Spectacular as usual with great wine and great food.
We are a huge fan of Cooper’s hawk. We really enjoy the wine tasting as we always learn about a new wine plus the food is always good.
Had a wonderful relaxing lunch. The lobster/shrimp bisque is great. Our server Huxley is the best.
Very professional and friendly Liked at lot very knowledgeable
Excellent food quality, diverse menu with something for everyone. Service was attentive. I find Cooper's Hawk to be consistently great, regardless of the location. They never disappoint.
TIP: main entrance to parking garage under construction and limited street parking, arrive a few minutes early to access rear entrance to parking garage.
Great food, server was great. It was a little noisier than usual as it seemed the music was louder than necessary. Server did a very good job, was very attentive, and put up with my baloney.
We had a reservation at 7:30 and were seated a bit after as they were extremely busy and running behind. We were seated in a great spot and had a wonderful server, Brandon, who was very attentive and helpful. The food was amazing and the peach sangria is to die for! Our food was a little late but they more than made up for it by buying us dessert and comping half our meal without us even asking. We had a wonderful time and definitely will be back!
Great food, ambiance and great customer service. I will definitely return.
Alex was our waiter and he was friendly, attentive and overall just terrific. My birthday was in January and still he surprised us with truffles and a birthday candle after our entrees. And of course the blanc de blanc was outstanding! After our record cold temps in Chicago this week it was a wonderful treat to get out and dine in a warm atmosphere with the best food and service.
