    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!

    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.

    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!!

    Food was amazing! Normally my husband has to watch us eat the pre-dinner bread due to his gluten sensitivity we loved that he received his on gluten free loaf that was delicious and hot at of the oven. Will definitely be back.

    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.

    Only tried the GF brownie here, wasn't impressed at all. Seemed frozen and microwaved. But granted, it is a GF brownie in a restaurant so they get points for trying.

    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!
