Cooper's Hawk Winery & Restaurant - Wheeling Ratings and Reviews
Menu very limited on types of steak and fish. However the filet mignon was very tasty and the grouper was very good. The waiter, Magan, was extremely courteous and efficient. The manager, Tom, was very cordial
Great Food - very loud
We love Cooper's Hawk and eat here very often. The food is wonderful and the service is very good. Weekends are particularly noisy. We specifically asked for the back room as it is usually quieter. Little did we know that there would be a party of 15 right behind us. It was impossible to hear half of our group. A lot of lip reading. Great meal. Hard to catch up with friends. Will not go back with more than 4 people.

I have eaten here numerous times and always had good meals. Not this time! I chose not to send my shoe leather burger back because I was treated by a colleague. Honestly, the worst meal ever! I asked for medium well and it was BLACK! My side of asparagus had so much salt on it I didn't even finish it. I had to ask several times for more water. Definitely not a good experience!

the staff was very welcoming from the minute we arrived until we left. My wife and each ordered a flight of wine (champagne and red) and 2 of the 4 were outstanding. The waiter even brought me a small glass of malbec to try (as it was his favorite). I'm a big fan of their pretzel bread too which is served warm and came from an oven not re-heated in a microwave. Overall a great experience

The food was *good* - not great. At these prices, I expect great. Wine selection was superlative.
Great food, service, ambience wine and desserts
Good selection of food for non-vegetarian and vegetarian. Wine bar with great wine selection. Craft beer selection is decent, but could be more expansive. Energetic but not noisy. Great dessert menu. Great, friendly service. Servers are knowledgeable about food selections. Nice and clean decor.

We had not been back to Cooper"s Hawk in quite some time. We had forgotten how very good it is and both the presentation and the quality of the food was excellent. Service was wonderful and of course the wine was as expected GREAT! We will be back again very soon.

We always enjoy our trips to Cooper's Hawk. The food is always great! Reservations made through Open Table are honored as soon as we walk through the door - never any hassle.
for the younger crowd
Very noisy, wine the main item they push rather than food. Most of the patrons are under 35 and seemed to be looking for company. The food was just ok. Waiter had too many tables to take care of. My wife waitd 30 minutes for a glass of water that she requested.
Had to wait too long with a reservation.

wine club member?
If you belong to their wine club, pick up your bottle and take it to dinner with you with no corkage fee.
Amazing dinner and a great experience.
Our thanks to Judy for the wonderful service. Even though she had several tables to care for she was very attentive our needs. The restaurant was very busy but the management kept things in order and under control. What a great operation.
Not into wine, but very impressed with the food.
Very good food, surprisingly good actually. Friendly and hard working waitstaff (Jeff). Prices are a little high but considering the quality of the food it's justifiable. Will definitely return.
Cheap wine. Great Food, Abysmal Service. We were a party of 5 and waited forever for our reservation, then waited for our food and then had very poor wait staff service. Complements to the chef! The food was great. Marginal wine, but cheap! It will be a LONG time before we return. The kicker was finding that the wine club we were signed up for costs $18.99 per month. The gift that keeps on giving. Shameful! No disclosure of wine club fee on sign up material or from wait staff. We cancelled the next day after we read the fine print in the email.

As usually, Cooper Hawk's food is outstanding!! However, they changed their menu and got rid of some of my personal favorites. I am not sure if they added something new worth trying...
A novel idea, but may be time for a change...
I have been a wine club member for years, but I feel like the CH chain may be getting a little tired. The menu is now a book like a national b/c grade chain and the entrees do not seem to vary much. The restaurant does not have specials or at least did not have them when we ate their on a Friday night. The management was a little loose with hostesses and bartenders a little distracted. People seem to want to help but are distracted and keep getting pulled away leaving customers without a clear understanding of what is happening. The wine-selling system is complicated and it took almost 30 minutes to sell me a case of wine. I want to like CH and I do like the local wine concept. There is however a need to re-invigorate and sharpen up the menu with seasonal foods, organic choices, some more upscale menu...separate wine lists..specials. The staff needs to be sharp and know their menu and be prepared to sell the new items a bit. Oh, and there has to be a better way to sell me wine! I hope CH management is reading these because it's a great concept and I am sure that a little effort here would draw people back into the fold. It will certainly help to keep me coming back!
We celebrated our son's birthday at Cooper's hawk in wheeling. Our server Judy was very gracious and attentive. The food was excellent and we could actually hear each other talk. It was a lovely evening. We will definitely be back.
The wine decanters were so much fun! We came here for the first time for an anniversary and the food was great, staff was attentive and they even gave us a complimentary dessert to celebrate.

We've been wine club members since they opened and used to go often. This last visit will be our last time. They were 35 minutes late with our reservations, there was no room at the tasting bar, they were out of wine of the month and it was still April. Once we were seated it took 15 minutes to be acknowledged, we ordered, the server came back to tell us they were out of 2 things we ordered. Her response was to send the manager over who started the conversation with "I hear you aren't happy". Wrong way to approach a client. We changed our order and 2 of the three items came wrong. Unbelievable. Maybe you've grown to quickly I am not sure but I am sure there are no third chances.
Love dining at Cooper's Hawk!
I love the food, the service and most definitely the wine!

Always reliable friendly service, well prepared and thought out menu, good wine. Great concept. Makes for a full evening when a wine tasting is included.
Absolutely love this place. Food is always great. Especially for those with a gluten tolerance. Wide selection of food and wines. The service is always wonderful. Our ladies nights always are a blast here.
Cooper's Hawk Is Our "Go To" Place
We enjoy quality food, that is consistent. We have our favorite meals, but can venture out and try new things with confidence at Cooper's Hawk. I recommend a wine tasting before your dinner, and a bottle of red during dinner so you can use the neat decanter.

I always enjoy the food but the calamari as an appetizer and the chicken Madeira for my entree were excellent choices! Leftovers for next day!

Wine bar server Joshua was outstanding... very attentive not only to us, but to others walking in, acknowledging and serving them right away. He has the "right" personality for the job and made everyone feel welcome. On our way out after dinner he was helping at the Truffles counter- always attentive to either fellow staff and /or customers- OUTSTANDING!!! A KEEPER!!! We usually go to the Burr Ridge location where we have outstanding service all the time also! We had an EXCELLENT experience at Wheeling thanks to Joshua!

Brought very close friends that had never been. They are always sending food back! They didn't have to everything was wonderful!! Thanks for a great time!!
Good but server too busy
Food is always wonderful here, and it did not disappoint. We both enjoyed the Classic burger. I had fruit as a side and my friend enjoyed the Aisan Cole slaw. We definitely will return.
Nice steak selection but lots of other things
The steaks were very good. The jambalaya was a little spicy, and that was perfect.
