Cooper's Hawk Winery & Restaurant - Merrillville Ratings and Reviews
Seated relatively quickly. Booth in a high traffic area adjacent to the kitchen. Special occasion dinner however we were not asked as we usually are during hostess seating. Lobster bisque delicious! Drunken shrimp also good. Had the short ribs on previous visit and loved my plate. However this time it came out very greasy. Seriously had over two inches of grease. Very hard to eat. Just thinking about it now makes me squirm. Tried to eat a few bites then had server bag up hoping I could drain the grease myself and salvage this meal somehow that I paid $25 for. We will return because I can't get of the bisque.
Our waiter was a little pushy, we didn't even get our drinks and he was pushing us to order. I had to tell him we were not in a hurry and we'd like to drink our drinks before we ordered. Waiters should be taught to handle that better.
I had a turkey burger and it was very average, it didn't have a lot of flavor. However the slaw was to die for!
Family enjoyed our first time visit. Food excellent wait staff excellent. Girls at the reception could of acknowledge that I was standing waiting for their help in updating I was there for our reservation. . Not very friendly. On first meeting. Glad the rest was great!
We had a reservation for a Saturday night, but still had to wait 15-20 minutes past our reservation time to be seated. We were seated at a table that was cramped in the middle of several tables, so we could hear everyone's conversations. We were also right under a vent, so cold air was blowing on us the whole night. I understand Saturday nights are busy, but our server, although friendly, was not very attentive, and when we did have questions, she seemed to rush through her responses. We were looking for a relaxing dinner place, and this was not the way to relax. We felt tense and rushed throughout the meal. The food was good, but over-priced. Nice variety on the "healthy" menu. I was a bit disappointed in our experience.
The service has ALWAYS been impeccable and the food the same. An added bounus for us and an A+++ for Cooper's Hawk is that we have a special needs grandson that does/unable to chew and Cooper's Hawk GLADLY blends his food for him. Not all restaurants will do that and usuall comes up with same lame excuse why they can't. The ones that do we go back to. Cooper's Hawk is most willing to help with any special dietary needs as well. The servers know the food and can make recommendations. Also LOVE that the servers say "You are welcome" or "My pleasure". HATE hearing "no problem". The smells and tastes that come from Cooper's Hawk is amazing!
Made a reservation for 5 (4 + baby) using this website which I have many times before. When I arrived I was told that I had never confirmed my reservation. Apparently they called me and I had receive two missed calls from numbers I didn't know but there was never a voicemail. Since I didn't answer they didn't save my reservation which made us wait about 15-20 min for a table. When we were finally sat they ordered our drinks. When the waitress came back she stayed that she may have to remove one of the two 4 tops because they thought there was 5 people. They never ended up doing this and I probably would have left had they did. Horrible experience and wouldn't return.
Coopers Hawk has been a favorite for me. However, I have to admit that this last time, the service was not quite so attentative as previous, and the food while still good, did not seem to be up to the standard that I expect. Still a good spot, but for the price, they need to do well.
