This restaurant did NOT disappoint. We were staying at the Westin and had a not so pleasant experience at Saranello's. We walked across the parking lot to Cooper's Hawk. They were closing the kitchen in a half an hour, but didn't act like we were a bother. They spent time going through the menu and while we were waiting for our food (since we ordered to go), we spent time at the Wine Tasting. The gal who assisted us was quite knowledgeable and we were also listening to the other servers conversation who was very knowledgeable. We enjoyed tastes of the Cabernet-White Zinn combo, Moscato and the Pomegranate wines. I like sweeter wines so enjoyed the Moscato and Pomegranate wines. I did not care for the Cabernet-White Zinn combination, but my husband enjoyed that. We ordered the COOPER'S HAWK CHICKEN GIARDINIERA$16.99 Parmesan Breaded Chicken, Shaved Parmesan, Mary’s Potatoes CHICKEN MADEIRA$17.99 Mushrooms, Provolone, Mary’s Potatoes, Asparagus The parmesan crusted chicken was excellent and my 12 year old loved it. We ordered the GIARDINIERA sauce on the side and am glad we did. It had a bit of a kick to it and my son didn't really care for the taste. I liked it, but then I love veggies and spices so it was perfect for me! The Chicken Madeira was excellent and the chicken almost melted in our mouths it was so tender. There were lots of mushrooms and it had a perfect taste. We ordered a white chocolate truffle and a turtle truffle which were awesome! We also ordered the Creme Brulee for dessert and there was plenty for all 3 of us to enjoy. We were so glad that Cooper's Hawk was there close by to save the day when we wanted a later dinner and weren't treated so well at Saranello's. We will definitely return!
Fabulous gf menu!
Great food and tasty gf options. Definitely recommend.
Lots of options on gf menu. Short rib risotto was delicious! Fun wine tasting too.
Though they have GF menu, there is much cross contamination. Waitstaff and manager not concerned about this. Please be careful if you have celiac. I became very sick after eating here. The wine is also underwhelming. Not worth it.
Dedicated gluten free menu. Enjoyed my experience here.
Amazing food!! The menu has lots of options and the staff is very knowledgable and very willing to cater to questions and needs. We was shocked when a pre dinner bread roll came out...We haven't had that option in so long and the ability to dip bread in the sauces that's in the dish OH MAN so good! Will definitely be back!! Oh and desert options too!!
Great gf menu!! They even brought gf bread. I felt like I was pleasantly surprised at the variety and taste!
GF menu with a large variety. Delicious scallops and wine!
Lots of options and very good
Excellent GF menu, service and food!
Had a very delicious take out sandwich - to eat with my team who was eating boxed lunches. The staff know what they are talking about and are very careful!
Gluten free menu was a book! Great knowledgable staff. GF options for apps, salads, entrees and desserts, so you can have an actual full meal here! I had the wedge salad and the chicken saltimbocca and it was all delicious. Not to mention the wine!
Chose this location for Thanksgiving after a great experience at the Merrillville location. Sad to say this was not an overly positive experience. Most of our family members have Celiac, and we ordered from the menu. There were fewer choices than the other location, and there was not a separate kitchen. Waitress suggested fries as a side, but manager told us they were unsafe after they were already on my daughter's plate at the table. We ordered GF buns for both girls' sandwiches, and both came out on a wheat bun. Staff was less than apologetic about the multiple mistakes. Thanksgiving food was not as good as their regular menu items. Bread at this location was different than Merrillville and not as good. Thankfully none of us got sick, so I will go ahead and give 3 stars... Sadly, not sure I will be back despite positive reviews from Celiac friends. My daughter would have been very ill if she had eaten the bread before we discovered the mistakes.
i have not been there yet, but the gluten free menu is awesome! they have gluten free burgers (with gluten free buns!), gluten free sandwiches (with gluten free bread!), desserts and more! its pricey but worth the splurge. and the wine looks heavenly!
Had a wonderful experience here! I asked for a gf menu, but didn't remind my server of tasty when I ordered. I mentioned that to the food runner when my meal came out. Apparently only managers are allowed to bring out gf dishes. The manager swooped in took my plate, apologized profusely for the mistake, and comped the tables drinks and my entree. My food wad remade and was excellent. I should have been more careful and reminded the waiter, but fortunately for me they have a well trainef staff!
A favorite! The gf menu is huge! It is almost overwhelming to pick my entree. The lettuce wraps are amazing and they always offer me gluten free bread (the same roll they use for sandwiches and burgers) when my husband gets the pretzel bread. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly.
Cooper's Hawk is the best gluten-free option out there! Staff is completely knowledgebale and trained regarding gluten-free options and the food is DELICIOUS! They even serve gluten free bread. I would highly recommend the Drunken Mexican Shrimp appetizer, Tenderloin Sandwich, and Mediterranean salad. The side house salad is great, too. The wine menu has wide array of gluten-free drinks–all of which can be sampled. LOVE this restaurant!
When I was asking about ingredients, the waitress asked if I had allergies. I replied yes that I have celiac disease and must have gluten free (I wasn't aware of a special GF MENU). She DID NOT mention any special menu or suggestions. I also asked for just plain mashed potatoes and I got au graitin potatoes! Perhaps there needs to be more training of their servers!!!
Large gluten free menu, including several desserts to choose from. Food was good, my daughter loved her burger, I enjoyed my portables burger, although the roll was a little crumbly and it was a touch dry. They do have the best iced tea I've ever had- blueberry pomegranate. It was light, not too sweet, but flavorful. I'd come back just for the tea!
I went to Cooper's Hawk on Sunday, 6/2/13 based upon the reviews in this app. They have an extensive GF menu, nice wait person. He explained the process. In order to receive your dish, two upper level management has to sign off and it is brought to you separate from the order. The issue I had was I reviewed the main menu to the GF menu to see the difference. When my dish was brought to me, it was from the main menu, not the GF menu. They didn't have a clue, when they signed off on the order why didn't they look at the GF menu? I became quite nervous!!! They took it back and brought out the correct dish, and provided me with a free dessert from OMG It's Gluten Free. Dinner was good, I had Seared Salmon, but was a lil disappointed in their carelessness.
I was so happy when the waitress handed me the GF menu. It was bound in a leather holder like the other menus & had lots of options. I hate those dirty, stained one-sheet menus with three items. I was surprised again when the waitress brought me a GF roll with the other bread (on a separate plate of course). It was nice to be treated to a normal dining experience. I ordered the short rib risotto (after taking my lactose pill) found the dish amazing!! Wow! I ordered the barbera wine, also amazing. The best parts of my experience is that I didn't get sick or have any symptoms the next day ( I'm really sensitive) & the experience & food were "normal." I didn't feel like a leper.
They had a very large gluten free menu that was pretty impressive. They offered Gf buns and even a Gf brownie. The food was delicious, however, I did get very sick afterwards. Great intentions, but I think the wait staff needs to be further educated.
Warm gluten free bread while you wait for your meal made my day. Got the burger which used the same bread so was a little too much of the same thing and tasted very salty for some reason but overall was good nonetheless. Had to go for the gf brownie dessert since I pretty much never get to have dessert at a restaurant...absolutely delicious. Ginger lemongrass tea is amazing too. The gf menu is beyond impressive. It doesn't just say which items on the regular menu are gluten free, but they actually make separate gf versions of many of the entrees. With such a massive gf menu I was surprised they didn't have a gf beer. Great experience overall.
Excellent food. Very celiac friendly.
They had the best GF menu I have seen anywhere. So many more choices than most places, including a brownie for desert and buns for burgers and sandwiches. The staff was wonderful and proud to help with any questions I had regarding the menu.
Great menu options. Servers helpful, knowledgable and patient!
Cooper's Hawk opened at Easton Town Center in Columbus on Monday this week. Imagine my excitement when I saw they offered a gluten-free menu and my first thought was "I have to try it immediately." So by Wednesday, I was eating there for the first time. Check out the size of this gluten-free menu.... They even have 5 gluten-free desert options! I told our waitress about my gluten allergy and she made sure the kitchen knew I was there. They brought out the pretzel bread for my dinner date and a gluten-free bun for me to try. We started with an appetizer of shrimp wrapped in bacon - delicious. The shrimp were large and I easily got 2-3 bites out of them. Dinner was the pepper jack, bacon cheeseburger - the bun was a little much for me since I already had one when we first got there so I ended up eating the burger naked. There were several sides I could select from and I ended up with Mary's mashed potatoes. I got a gluten-free brownie to take home and shared it with my husband. It was simply delicious. Light, fluffy and moist! The manager even came out after my meal to make sure everything was ok and I enjoyed my meal. He explained the gluten-free process and that they are very sensitive to cross contamination and pride themselves on making safe gluten-free experiences for their guests. After this tasty meal, I decided to bring my family last night to try something new on the menu. They've already been to all the places around us to eat so it was a great change for them to try something new. Last night's meal blew the lid off of any other gluten-free meal I've had at other places. Wildfire Chicago is a close second to this dish. I decided to try something totally new and went with the short rib risotto and it was best decision I've ever made. The meat was tender, moist and fell apart with my fork into the risotto. The sauce was incredible and the truffle oil on top with parmesan shavings tied everything together perfectly. We ended the meal with some chocolate covered strawberries. They were ok, not the best but then again it's hard to compete with Godiva strawberries. I just didn't think they were ripe enough before being covered in the chocolate. I do have one comment about the restaurant - we had reservations at 7:30pm. While we didn't wait longer than 5 minutes for our table, imagine our confusion when they were quoting people a 2-3 hour wait for a table and then there were at least 10-15 empty tables in the dining room when we were seated. Maybe it was lack of staff, but it was strange in my book.
Rivals Wildfire's GF menu in my book! Thai lettuce wraps are amazing. GF bread & buns for burger- delicious! Must try!
Absolutely amazing! We had our wedding reception here and they were super accommodating for both me as the bride and my GF guests. Ask for the GF bread to start and the GF menu. You won't believe how many options they have! Dana's Parm or the fillet mignon are my favorites. Enjoy the GF brownie or chocolate dipped strawberries for dessert. Bonus: their wine is outstanding! I recommend the blueberry :)
My favorite gf menu! Delicious! They even have amazing gf bread, my friends ask for the gf bread over the regular even though they are not gf!!!
Excellent dedicated menu for GF. One of the best I've seen, numerous choices. Food was very good, loved this place.
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
Chicken piccata is awesome!!! So are the lettuce wraps!
Excellent gluten free bread
Amazing menu so many different types of choices. Staff at every level is on top of gf
Great.... Wine too...
Cooper's Hawk has the greatest gluten free menu I've ever seen or tasted. The number of options they have, from complimentary bread to start to desserts makes you feel like you're ordering off the regular menu! My go-to place for a nice dinner out!
They have a great gluten free menu-big variety and their bisquits are delicious and served warm.
