I’ve never had any issues at Cooper’s hawk in the many years I’ve been going. I went to this location for the first time and there must have been cross contamination. I’m highly sensitive with celiac. I will never risk eating at this location again.

Excellent gluten free menu. Everyone was aware that we were gf when we arrived after noting it in our reservation. Server was knowledgeable on cross contact. They have great protocols in place for celiac. Lots of delicious options. My daughter had the kids gf mac and cheese and it was the best she’s had. Then the gf smores dessert, which was divine.

The food here is good and lots of options but the food service is so slow. It kind of ruins the experience to wait over an hour for food.

They had a gluten-free menu, which had a lot of stuff probably more than any restaurant I’ve been to. They came out with bread and butter for everybody and brought out my own gluten-free bread and butter. They were very careful with contamination and I would suggest anyone with celiac disease to come here.

I had the thai lettuce wraps off the gluten free menu and they were great. They also brought me some gluten free bread (which had a different plate and look to the normal bread), which was also great! I didn't try any of the drinks but I will probably go back and try some because that's kind of what the restaurant is about.

This is the best dining experience i've had since i've been gluten free. The server was extremely knowledgeable, explained how their manager has to sign off on all foods being gluten free before coming to the table, there's a separate cooking area and an extensive gf menu. They also brought me out my own fresh gluten free bun. Best meal i've had. I got the seared ahi tuna. Did not get sick and i have severe celiac's disease!

Love Cooper's Hawk! They have an extensive gluten-free menu with several choices in each category, including dessert. So many delicious options ! My favorite is the Dana's Chicken.

They do have gluten-free pasta. I always ask to be sure about separate water and have never gotten sick from it.

They will make gluten-free bread fresh in a separate oven to start the meal. If you order a burger, it's the same bread/roll/bun so it's a little big and awkward for a burger.

The staff have always been friendly and helpful. I make sure to note on my reservation that I have Celiac and need a gluten-free menu. Then I tell the server and they run through protocols. It's always been a good experience.
