Service what service I was charged for items we ordered but never got . The steak was like licking a salt lick. I asked to return it and they did not .I think my wife cracked her tooth on the hard bread. The waitress ignored us .and i called to complain and noone even returned my call. All this on our anniversary and Valentine's day. What a serious disappointment not to mention we were both ill the next day. Never go there is loud and overpriced in a huge way. Outback hell McDonald's is better and dinner for two to get sick was over 100.00.

The service we received this visit was as if we were a bother to the gentleman that waited on us. Normally the servers take the time to explain the specials and discuss the menu with us. After waiting about 10 minutes a young lady approached us and asked if anyone had been to they table yet, we said no. She left and about 3 or 4 minutes later our waiter arrived.

“Have you been here before”? Was the greeting. We said yes, several times. He responded; “Great, ready to order”?
When he took our order for dessert he tried to deliver it to the wrong table. He took the order??

Overall the service did. It measure up this visit to our normal 5 Star experiences.
On top of that we sat in front of an open window, very chilly.

Great fun with friends. The 6 of us each had a different entree and we enjoyed all of them. Good portion size and presentation. We dined on a Wednesday and it was packed, inside and out despite the chilly weather.

Food and wines I'm just fine. Had a hamburger that was delicious And my wife had salmon that she thought was wonderful. Service was excellent, the only downside is that it's quite noisy. I'll certainly return.

Since we are not from the area, we were asking around for recommendations and this was recommended to us by our daughter-in-law whose father knows the owner. I am SO happy they told us about this restaurant. The ambiance of the restaurant had a nice feel from the moment you walked in and was seated. The food was fresh - farm to table - with ample food selections, prepared perfectly and beautifully presented on white dishes. It was a pleasant evening so we were seated outdoors which just enhanced our dining experience. Our waitress Tara was VERY attentive . We drove about 35 minutes from Stuart to have dinner here and we would go again in a heartbeat. Would highly recommend!

The Cooper is our go to in Palm Beach Gardens for fresh, healthy, well prepared meals and innovative food combinations. We love the appetizer choices, the stand by entrees as well as the nightly specials. There is always a good mix of red meat, chicken, and seafood options to suit any palate. We love the food, the service and the ambience!

Love this restaurant ordinarily but chicken was so grossly over-cooked on the outsidetham the white meat was like leather. When I ate the drumstick it was OK but reported to the waitress that I could barely cut into the breast. Dries out and all. Her response was that I should have mentioned it before eating the drumstick Seriously??

This waitress needed better training.

We have dined at the Cooper several times over the past few months. We always have a good experience. The outside seating is great because I usually bring my dog and there is an area that I can walk her. We go on Sundays and they have a nice brunch menu with bottomless mimosas and bloody Mary’s. Just a nice atmosphere to unwind on a Sunday morning. Everyone at the table enjoyed their meals. They also have little areas that have sofas and lounge chairs so you can sit there, finish your drink and be comfortable.

Would still recommend, but we were disappointed on this return visit. Our first visit a few weeks ago was terrific, with delicious entrees that lived up to the chef’s reputation.
This time, our fish entrees were pretty run-of-the mill, and not nearly as innovative or tempting as we had expected.
We plan to try at least one more time, hoping that the recent visit was an aberration and not the norm.

Food and service high quality. It was too noisy for easy conversation, given the high percentage or reflecting surfaces and the speaker above our table firing rock music at us. I’ve complained about the noise level before.

This was probably my 7th-8th visit to The Cooper. It has become a "go to" establishment for my wife and me. We enjoy the menu and the vibe, although I must say that the noise level during this past visit was really too much. The four top we had in the middle dining room was too small, but even in cramped quarters I had to strain to hear my dining partner sitting right next to me.
Other than those two criticisms, we had a nice meal.

We like Dinner at the Cooper while vacationing in West Palm Beach. We went on a Monday night hoping that the 50% off deal on a bottle of wine was still in effect. Unfortunately it was not. Other than that disappointment we had a great dinner. Food and service were wonderful, the full price bottle of wine was also good.

This was our first time at this restaurant, and we will definitely return. Everyone at the table thoroughly enjoyed their meal, chicken, mahi-mahi,scallops and salmon. For dessert we had the key lime mango pie, which all four of us agreed that it was the best we’ve ever tasted! The server Tara, was delightful and professional, making it a lovely evening.

I was disappointed with the food for the first time. The special was unavailable and my second choice came out over cooked and tasteless. My son- in- laws steak came out too rare. He ordered based on the servers recommendation. Service was spotty. I’ll try it again. I’m not in a rush.

Our first time. Great menu selection including vegetarian. Our food was prepared well, served with enthusiasm and care.
This restaurant is like dining in someone’s home. We had lunch inside and were seated at a very comfortable booth with large table and comfortable bench seating with pillows for extra comfort. Food is locally sourced when possible, fresh and delicious.
I ordered the salmon filet with cauliflower rice, my friends had just off the boat fresh mahi tacos, a veggie burger topped with a fried egg, and steak frites. All entrees were delicious! We topped it off with flourless chocolate cake and a mango key lime pie. Also excellent. I’d recommend dining here!

The Cooper is a restaurant I frequent fairly often. I suggested it to out of town friends. We met there. They loved the fish they ordered. My duck duo was inedible. I left most of it on the plate. It was raw and tasteless. I should have sent it back but didn’t
I will go back again because all my other choices have been terrific.
