    I have celiac and had a good experience. food was good, \old wine tasters as well. not everyone will have a good experience as my gluten free meal is dependant upon cooks and servers to keep it gluten free. I sent something back once and they were very kind to accommodate and it turned out to be a nice meal and I had no issues post meal.

    largest GF menu I've seen. so big I couldn't choose. pastas, appetizers, desserts. best GF bun I've had anywhere...it actually stayed bun-like for my whole sandwich. they have GF flour, so I had a crispy chicken Caesar sandwich. not good for my waistline, but it's been so long since I've had something"crispy", I had to. it was worth it!

    eat here all the time. By far the best Gluten free menu I've seen. The food is plentiful so don't know what other request are talking about. The price is worth it in my opinion. You get what you pay for and this place is quality. If you want a ton of food for a few bucks then take your cheap butt to McDonald's

    Joined wine club since they offer GF. Never had problem here. Love the GF bread they bring me while the rest of my family enjoy the regular pretzel bread. I always get the GF short rib risotto. I'm tempted by the other options, but I can't seem to say no to risotto. Has mushrooms which I typically don't eat anywhere else, but I usually eat about half of them & the rest of my bowl is empty. So filling. You must order the GF s'mores budino. It's heavenly.

    I really am only giving one star but the system bumps it to two. The waitress/chef messed up my order and the manager tried to put the blame on me. Then instead of correcting the issue the right way I was served undercooked filet mignon and raw asparagus.

    GF menu is great, but I have been cross-contaminated here more than once. We finally cancelled our wine membership because of it. If you are super sensitive like I am, please repeat it multiple times to your server and ask him or her to personally tell the chef.

    Love that u have sweets and a variety of flavors for entrees. Please find gluten free pasta that is also corn free pasta. It really is an issue. Besides myself, I know a lot of people who have corn issues along with gluten. There is quinoa (even better than rice) and there is rice pasta.

    This was probably one of the top 5 best GF restaurants meals I've ever had. They have an amazing GF menu, and two managers swung by our table to see if I had questions. They assured me that they have a separate allergen-free prep line in their kitchen. Meal was incredible and I felt great afterwards, too.

    Four stars ONLY because I think they glutened me with blue cheese stuffed olives in my martini. This place is amazing and claims to have separate prep areas so rating it celiac friendly based on 1) knowledge of servers 2) separate GF menu and 3) reported separate prep space.

    I suppose if you are just GF, then this place is ok. I am DF and GF. They have messed up my meal 3 times now. Working on my 4 th try. I do not recommend this place. At least the 4th try was good. I had the burger. It was delicious, but anti climatic. I decided to give it another try. It was fabulous. I just made sure I got a manager involved right at the beginning. So I am changing my rating from 1 to 5.

    This is my go-to restaurant for gluten-free dining. The food is delicious, and I know I can eat there safely, without the threat of cross-contamination or getting sick. The dedicated gluten-free menu has a lot of options, including appetizers and desserts. I do not care for their gluten-free pasta. It comes watered-down and lacks flavor. The last time I ordered a gf pasta dish, I had to send it back. I wish Cooper's Hawk would use different hamburger buns. The ones they have now crumble, and sometimes they taste freezer-burned. It is impossible to eat a hamburger without using a knife and fork. I also wish they'd find a way to get a dedicated fryer for french fries. Right now, if I want a burger, I go to Red Robin.Otherwise, it's Cooper's Hawk for me. Their white chocolate truffles and dark chocolate truffles are gluten free, which is nice, but they do not taste nearly as good as they once did. They must have changed the recipe. Wait staff is usually good. Find someone you like, get their schedule and then ask for that server when you come in. Otherwise, the service can be sketchy -- never bad, it's just that some servers are better than others. For example, on one of my birthdays, they brought the usual white chocolate truffle and chocolate dipped strawberry, gratis, with a candle. That's their usual thing to do. However, since I no longer care for the chocolate there, I would have liked to have ordered an additional dessert from the menu. My husband would have ordered something, too, along with enjoying the truffle. I also would have liked coffee. The server just plopped the plate down and walked away without asking if there might be something else we'd like, or if my husband would like to order dessert.Not only were we ill-served, the server lost money for Cooper's Hawk. So, I gave my dessert to hubby and skipped my birthday celebration. Cooper's Hawk: I love ya, but you still have a way to go to earn 5-stars.

    Cooper's Hawk has an amazing gluten free menu and takes several precautions to avoid cross contamination. I've been here twice for special occasions and I have not gotten sick. They have various GF wines, mixed drinks, appetizers, entrees and even several dessert options. Its best to make a reservation at least several days in advance because its a very busy place. I look forward to the next time that I get to eat here!

    I hate writing this review because this used to be my go to gluten free restaurant. I ordered gluten free pasta and before I left I looked at the box and it had a GF written on box so I didn't bother looking inside before I drove the 45 minutes home. Once I got home I realized that they gave me regular pasta BUT wrote GF on it anyways. So so disappointing! This is the 3rd time this has happened to me recently and I can no longer trust them. How could you write GF on a box that is full of gluten food!

    Careless in the kitchen. Ordered the chicken piccata from the GF menu and told the server that it is an allergy. Our food was brought out and we began eating. I took a couple of bites and then noticed I had a noodle in my mouth. I flag the server down and asked if they put GF noodles under the chicken medallions. He looked flustered and took my plate to the kitchen. 7 minutes later I had a new plate and was told my previous plate was not gluten free. He apologized and expressed that he had put my allergy on the food ticket. Needless to say hours later I was awakened by a very upset stomach. The wine was delicious. We we try the other location in Waterview. I have heard they are great.
