Cooper's Hawk Winery & Restaurant - Wheeling Ratings and Reviews
The noise level where we were seated was ...
The noise level where we were seated was not just "Energetic" it was almost impossible to talk and be heard. Two large groups of very loud patrons.
The menu had food smeared over some pages- not exactly a turn on. The servers recommendation( one of the more expensive items on the menu) was not all that it was supposed to be, including asparagus where the bottom part was still hard and impossible to cut/eat
One meal arrived "lukewarm" and not appetizing.
Maybe this is a good place for wine but food was not appetizing at all

My husband and I love going to Cooper's Hawk for date night and special occasions. The food is always delicious and the service is attentive. The service was exceptional during our most recent visit. The restaurant was very busy, and rather noisy as a result, so I'm happy we made a reservation.

Decent selection on the menu, from appetizers to mains, and everything in between. Always consistent food and service, along with credible wine-making. Cooper's Hawk is always a safe bet. The stewards manning the wine-tastings are always exceptional.

we had been to this location before and service and food was much better. this time around our server was generally non-existent, then when we were leaving we didn't see him for a long time, so we left the bill with a manager and provided in-person feedback.
our food was OK - but my Wife had a gluten-free pasta meal that was subpar based on other similar dishes at other restaurants.
overall - we wouldn't go back. portions are shrinking and prices are staying relatively high.
sadly, this dinner was for my Mother's birthday...

I've been a patron of a few different Cooper's Hawk have always had great food and service. This must have been an "off night". Our server was very nice but not very attentive. My daughter has lactose issues and she ordered a entrée salad, minus the cheese. Her salad came with pieces of cheese because they were in the dressing! our waiter should have known this. My fathers flatbread pizza came to the table stone cold. So both my father and daughter sat there while the remainder of us ate our dinner. They did comp my dad's meal but it didn't change the level of disappointment we felt for a special birthday celebration, where we could have chosen from a huge spectrum of restaurants.

First time. Sunday after Marriott matinee. Nice feel. Extensive menu with lots of variety including small plates and lite plates. Server was great help at describing different plates and options. Good assistance on wine flights. Beet and whipped goat cheese salad was small in size, just right, and delicious. Braised shortribs melt in mouth. Salmon perfectly cooked. Will be back and tell others.

We have dined here before and I was excited about dinner at Cooper's Hawk but I am sorry to say it was not as good as I remember from my last visit.
The menu choices seemed different from last September when I was there.
The appetizers were delicious and our server was great. My daughter ordered a hamburger that, when received, was cold to the touch and the condiment sauce had a film over it from sitting out too long. She returned the burger and received what we believed to be a new burger on a fresh bun, but instead the meat paddy that she had cut in half before returning was just reheated in the microwave and place on a new bun.
I have to admit I was really surprised to see that her meal was still on the check when we were ready leave.

Went to Cooopers Hawk for my grandson's 9th birthday. He loves this place because of the bread! Six of us had a wonderful dinner. I asked our server for chocolate covered strawberries for the birthday boy and she brought it with a candle. Love this place.

As always the atmosphere is relaxing and food delicious! Our server Judy was professional, courteous, and most importantly prompt with our wine and food order. It was a special occasion that ended with the presentation of a celebratory dessert. Much appreciated!!!
Save me a table, I will definitely be back..... :)

We come at least once a month every month to the Wheeling location as we are two bottle wine club members. We do our tasting then eat. Tonight's server is not fit for this environment and price point. I still tipped short of 20% out of courtesy but I did not want to even tip 10%. I left with a poor taste in my mouth and it was not Bc of the food.

Food and service was great. Had one member of our family that has to be gluten free and they had a separate menu for her . The room is pretty loud which made it difficult for my elderly parents, but the meals they received made up for it
Everything was great and it was second t ...
Everything was great and it was second time had dinner at Cooper's Hawk. Wine was great for its freshness and variety (you could taste various wines in one spot), food was excellent.
I ordered Churrasco Grilled Stake and it was absolute great. Tender and juicy, I was really happy until my server was a bit late to serve us. She must be tired at that time(around 8:30 PM) and she looked like middle of 50 or more so I completely understand she must be tired.
After I got that gorgeous stake, my wine glass was empty already. (It took about 20 minutes to serve food) I ordered it and it took about 10 minutes. Server didn't ask me more wine even I put the glass at the edge of table intentionally. I had ONLY 3 glasses of wine and not drunken at all.
Also, food served around after 20 minutes and I can understand because restaurant packed with people. However, serving was totally different compare to last visit (it was on Saturday evening). At that time, server asked us several times 'how is food, would you like to have more bread (this is really delicious) etc' and I felt she takes care our dining. This time it was totally different. We felt unattended (just one time she asked us how is food).
That doesn't mean it was the worst but my experience at Cooper's Hawk was 3 out of 5 stars overall.
One last thing I really wondering is that we had to wait when we there even I already booked. It was not that long waiting time, but wondering why they have online reservation system. (They put my name card when I sat on the table. lol)

I have been having a hard time getting a reservation at some like Burr ridge and Naperville and I am glad I got to go to Wheeling for a 6:00 Dinner. I guess Cooper's Hawk is getting quite popular which I suppose is a good thing.

Our server was not the friendliest. It was my husband's birthday and we belong to the wine club for the 2nd year and a free dessert should have been offered I later found out. My birthday was the month before and we dined there and I was not offered the free dessert either. Disappointing!

We arrived just a little early and received free samples of wine. What a great greeting! Within minutes our table was ready (party of 6) and service began as soon as we were seated. The place was a little over half full when we arrived and was packed when we left. We had to shout to hear each other as the noise was deafening. Food arrived within a decent amount of time and was very good. Service personal were attentive although we had dry water glasses frequently and had to wait to get more. All in all, we were satisfied with the experience and would recommend Cooper's Hawk to others.

Last time I was at Cooper's Hawk I had a bad experience. I came back again at their request and guess what another challenging and embarrassing meal. I once again ordered something that they were out of on a Tuesday night at 7:00PM. The service was poor, we couldn't find our server. To top off the night, the server took it upon herself to take off my birthday certificate from the bill without asking me first. How embarrassing when I didn't want to use it with this group of friends. I'm done.

We were a party of three. We ordered appetizers that arrived pretty fast. Our main courses took forever to come. Two dinners were filet medallions and and one dinner was grouper. First we were told the food would be right out. Then we were told the kitchen got very busy all at once. Then they said they were waiting for the grouper. When the food finally came out,the steaks were ice cold and the grouper was very hot. Our server took the steaks back and the manager came over to apologize and would wait for the new steaks to be cooked. When the manager brought the stocks out a second time, all the chef did was reheat the meals, which caused the steaks to be overdone. Finally we got our meals. The manager did comp the steaks and some desserts. All in all it was not a good experience.
