We were seating right by the kitchen, a lot of traffic. We food took 45 minutes because "they had a couple of big parties" yet when it did finally arrive it was barely warm and neither one of our steak medallions were cooked right. The manager said she would buy us a glass of wine or dessert, but she never told our server she would do so, he was very apologetic. Wasn't his fault, it was the kitchen.

Great food! Especially love the Gluten Free Menu - great selection of food and the menu has multiple pages (for those that are not gluten free - you will never understand the struggle) Great wine list as well and various gluten free dessert choices.

Enjoyed the food & service. Menu offers many appetizing selections. Don't live in area but when traveling through Merrillville I do make every effort to have dinner with you. Very busy so reservations are highly recommended.

We always enjoy going to Cooper's Hawk, but this time there were a few problems. The food and service were excellent, as usual. We had a reservation for 8:15 and were not seated until 8:55! This kind of miscalculation of time is, in my opinion, unacceptable. The staff needs to be trained how to handle the preparation of tables and sections necessary to fulfill reservations in a timely manner.

I ordered the black and blue flank steak. My steak was cold, the salad consisted of 80% iceberg lettuce including a 2" wide piece of the head of lettuce. Just sliced off the round head and put on the side of the plate almost like a garnish. The steak was so tough and chewy, I cold not cut it with my steak knife and chewing it was nearly impossible with me spitting out several bites into my napkin to avoid choking on it. I told the waitress I was NOT impressed with my meal and she did not seem to care what I thought and took no further action. I have been to another Cooper's Hawk location and had the same meal and was happy so I expected more. The occasion was my 28th wedding anniversary and the dinner was very disappointing.

Restaurant has an attractive interior. We enjoyed our Wedge Salads. I had the Spaghetti and Meatballs. The meatballs were tasty and there were lots of them. The spaghetti sauce was a little watery. Our server was a little indifferent.

My husband and I absolutely love Cooper's Hawk!!!! The have great wine and a great dining menu as well!!! There's a huge selection of food and drink. We have tried a vast majority of items on the menu and have never been disappointed. The crispy fish sandwich is amazing- I recommend it to everyone!

Great experience. Took my wife of 23 years on a date. Food was amazing, attentive waitstaff, and extensive winelist. We found the ambiance to be conducive to sharing and good conversation. We enjoyed the experience and will definitely be returning! Only complaint...our expectation was that the restaurant would have more of a formal feel, but we found most of the patrons in jeans, t-shirts, and gym shoes, far from what we anticipated. My wife and I dressed for the date, but were not happy about the relaxed dress code. We can do jeans and gym shoes any day.

Extremely disappointing ... I was looking for a better than average dining experience and had dined at Cooper's Hawk previously with good success. The Lobster bisque was blasé and lacked any substantive lobster - it was mainly a vegetable broth. The salad was so-so and much too large. My entrée of blackened tuna was so overly spicy that I could not taste the tuna at all. A blob in my mouth with lots of hot seasoning was all that was there.

My mother has Celiac Disease and HAS to be gluten-free and Cooper's Hawk is able to expertly meet her dietary needs. Our server was aware of her needs and did not even have to ask questions and offered my mom gluten free bread before she even has to ask. It is one of our favorite places to dine.

My wife ordered Short Ribs and Risotto (which she always orders) and when she received it, she had Risotto with 3 bits of short ribs. She ate the mushrooms thinking they were bits of meat which they were not. She was very disappointed and probably will not order it again. Please bring back the 3 Short Rib Pieces.
The restaurant was very loud and sounded like a sports bar on SuperBowl Night.
The Mexican Drunken Shrimp were delicious.

I've been to Cooper's Hawk on another occasion but this visit was excellent. I enjoyed it so much I plan to make it my go to place always. I'm sure it had a lot to do with my waiter Isadore. He was soooo kind and so informative and he knew the wines. He stated the will not always be on the floor in the future but his skills need to be utilized in training. He made a good experience into the best experience ever.
