One of the nicer restaurants in oak Park. Love their wine and love that while you wait for your table you can sample wines. Beautiful decanters available for bottles purchased at table. Food was tasty, large portions. Fish and chips for example has 4 medium sized pieces of fish. The bread you get while you wait is amazing! Soft and fresh.

We celebrated my wife’s birthday and had a really nice meal. The Brussels sprouts appetizer was divine! Our server Huxley was very attentive and we had a great experience.

Our server Erik was amazing!!! It was mine and my family’s first time at the restaurant and He knew what he was talking about every time we asked a question. He was very kind as well. The atmosphere and crowd was comfortable but yet felt like you were in a fancy restaurant. The food was very good and prices are reasonable. We definitely will be coming back.

It was one of the best visits we’ve had in awhile. Server Lauren was helpful and pleasant. I tried one of the new menu items, the corn and tomato risotto, it was delicious. It was my birthday and we had a great time.

Great place for a lunch or dinner. Went to Cooper's Hawk with friends after a local event. Staff was friendly and courteous, had suggestions for their entrees and a pairing suggestion for each meal. Have been her often and never disappointed. Would recommend to anyone who wants a good meal.

We tried several wines and eventually settled on a bottle although nothing was particularly special. The crab beignet were soggy so the server removed them from the tab. The bruschetta and tuna sashimi were both very good.

I liked the atmosphere, but I ordered the Chicken Madeira and I was disappointed...I did not know that the chicken would be in this sweet sauce, lightly baked . I had asked the waiter about it and he did tell me that there would be a some thin cheese on the chicken, and I asked how were the mushrooms cooked, I asked if they were fried, he said grilled.. So I took a chance, But that sauce ruined it for me..I brought it home, and it is still in the refrigerator, I will probably throw it out before week's end. The Bread was the best part of my meal...I also had a lunch size Caesar Salad, and it was a very generous portion, but I missed the Caesar dressing, as it had a pesto dressing...I had a long island iced tea, and it was good. So overall, the restaurant was nice, but I will probably not go back for quite a while. If I do, I will try the Parmesan Chicken which is what I should have ordered in the first place.

I made a reservation for my birthday, but I wish I hadn’t. Our server wasn’t attentive enough. We literally had to chase him down for things like utensils and straws. The food was very bland. One of our orders was completely wrong but the waiter insisted that wasn’t true. We asked to speak to the manager and instead of the manager coming over and speaking with us face to face he sent the server over to tell us said order would be taken care of. The server blamed his other teammates for why orders were wrong instead of being a team player and apologizing on their behalf. I’d never have anything else here

The service as of lately have been lacking, the food is great as usual but we asked for bread never received it. We were bought the wrong starter and it took a while before anyone actually came to our table I went back for wine tasting on Saturday and as a card holder to pick up wine, this challenged my patience as the person barely acknowledged us while we waited long periods into pours while she held a conversation with other customers we weren’t offered water or crackers to cleanse our palate in between tasting and then I gave $2 in cash for my up charge on wine only to find out she charged my card and kept the $2 along with the $3 tip I had given her for awful service.

Todd was absolutely fantastic! We were a bit loud (celebrating a certification class graduation) and had some tricky requests. He gave us complimentary champagne to toast our accomplishment and he did great under some of the pressure my party gave him.

The food was delicious as usual but they were out of everything we were looking forward to. No scallops, no more mexican drunken shrimp and the waitress kept laughing about not having anything left in the kitchen. Also she did not no the difference between the two types of Bloody Mary's. we just wanted the simple regular one and she brought out the one with al the trimmings twice and again laughed.

It was a good evening before the server and the checkout employee pushed too hard for joining the club. It was also very difficult to purchase two bottles of wine. Very poor checkout process.

Room was very warm and loud (somewhat expected on Friday evening), multiple empty bottle of wine and tasting glasses left on table the entire dinner. Have made Ambassador status every year for the past few years and will not be renewing my membership after this year. The food was as good as always, but the service was mediocre. After a few years in the food industry, I was sadly disappointed yet again. Everyone else had a great time, and they will all be back. Thank you.

My husband took me to the restaurant for birthday dinner. We reserved and indicated we were celebrating a birthday on that reservation. However, I was really disappointed that the server either knew nothing about the occasion I was celebrating or ignored it.

Birthday! Bash! Bummer! I booked this location as the Wheeling location was unable to accommodate my request for the date & time. While the restaurant was beautiful inside, the service left little to be desired. We were celebrating a Birthday (which I indicated on Open Table) but our server failed to acknowledge. He lacked enthusiasm and we felt like it was a chore for him to even be at work. Out of 7 people in our party, 5 entree's came out together, another 1 about 5 minutes later and the last was after that, which was wrong and had to be sent back for the proper selection. That entrée came almost 15 minutes later and the 6 of us were almost finished eating. Only Good thing was the last meal was taken off the bill. We shouldn't have had to pay for any of them! Disappointed!
