I’ve successfully eaten here four times without a celiac response. The bread is quite lovely, making the chicken sandwich the best I’ve eaten in a year.

There is a very large menu and staff instantly knew what was GF. Food was delicious and large portion (salad).

After eating here safely in the past, I had a waitress that didn’t take my mother and I, who are both celiacs, seriously and we both ended up sick.

We’re not eating this way as a fad diet!!!

No issues getting sick and have been a few times. One waiter needed to be reminded apparently of gluten free with an item on the gluten free menu was ordered.. He brought me two gluten free shrimp after and said he wouldn't charge me 🤦🏼‍♀ this most recent time I just made sure to say gf with each item to be safe. I haven't sick any of times I have eaten here.

They do a nice job, I have had baby showers, rehearsal dinner and much more here and I haven’t gotten sick. I did have one experience where I didn’t feel confident in my server and the food brought out to me and the manager offered to remake but I chose to not and they gave us a card for a meal on them.

The waitress knew I have celiac disease and carried regular bread and my glass of water in the same hand with the glass touching the bread. Then proceeded to try to put the bread down right in front of me. We made her take the bread and water away and explained why. My husband asked her if she had been trained on how to handle gluten-free meals. She said no. We explained what happened to the front of the house manager who assured us that he would personally take care of things and that our gluten-free meals would be served by a manager. I decided to stay because of his assurances that all would be safe and it was my husband's birthday. The food was NOT brought to our table by a manager and they sent a different server every time. The food was NOT safe and now I am sick as a dog! I will NEVER go there again.

Cooper's Hawk has a great GF menu. The staff has always been super knowledgeable about gluten and cross contamination. I've been here several times and always have a pleasant experience.

Celiac-friendly! Our 2 celiac diners had no adverse reactions to the food, and considering how careful they are "behind the scenes," this doesn't surprise me. There is an extensive GF-specific menu with GF rolls offered before the meal. We'll definitely be back.

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!

I’ve dined here several times and have always had a great experience. There are a lot of gluten free options, staff is knowledgeable, and the food is excellent! It’s the only place I’ve dined where they offer to bring gluten free bread to the table before the meal at no extra charge. They even have gf desserts.

I am changing my review. I used to be able to trust this place no matter what, but before I left Northwest Indiana in autumn 2020, the last three or four meals that I received from CH got me very sick. Most of them were before Covid. There was one after Covid that was a carry out order, and we spent a fortune for it and I couldn’t eat it because they cross contaminated my steak with bread.If you order from there, I would recommend that you talk to a manager. Do not just give your order to the wait staff. They really need to work at getting their act together. This makes me very sad because I used to love Coopers Hawk. I went there for many many many years, and I recommended it to so many people. Worse yet, the last time I called to complain, they said they would send me some coupons, and I never received them. I had an entire group of people that I was going to bring there. Maybe they have it in the system that I called to complain previously, and they decided to ignore me, Or maybe they knew I was moving out of the area and they decided to ignore me. I don’t know, but I come into the area all the time and I would eat there all the time, except now I can’t trust them anymore.

Staff is not helpful. In fact, ordered extra meat for 2 orders and they split the meat and received less meat.
