I am hyper sensitive to gluten, I have eaten here 4 times and have had no issues. They have a separate gluten free menu and they avoid cross contamination. Each visit we ate in the bar area. The wait staff was attentive and friendly, and appeared knowledgeable about gluten allergies and cross contamination and were eager to double check with the chefs to answer my questions. The chicken madeira is delicious.

The food is not worth what they charge and staff is rude. Only positive is gluten free rolls if they remember to bring them

OMG! Outstanding! Even just the gf bun on the burger makes this my favorite restaurant without doubt! Drunken shrimp is a favorite appetizer, wine tasting is fun and informative. VERY knowledgeable about CC. Never sick

Extensive GF menu and servers are very knowledgeable about the dishes. Warm GF roll with butter was a nice touch. All the food we had was very tasty and the place has a fun vibe. Free tasting of the barrel reserve wine. Will definitely go back.

Cooper’s Hawk is my go-to for fancy GF food. There is a separate GF menu and staff are knowledgeable. You can also order off the regular menu and have substitutions and omissions to make it GF. The candied bacon and artisan cheeses with a GF bun substitution is a must for the appetizer course. Mexican drunken shrimp and chopped wedge salad are a nice fresh duo to start a meal, but may end up filling you by the main course. Don’t miss out on trying the shrimp and scallop risotto and finish up with the flourless chocolate torte.

I’ll start this review off by stating the food was good, and most importantly, safe. Would I come back for the food probably, but the service was some of the worst I’ve ever had. To start, they lost our reservation. No big deal, they made it right cause I had proof on my email. We were seated, and the waiter was slow. No biggie, they were slammed. Drinks took 20 mins to get. Afterwards, apps were ordered. About 10 mins after apps were order we ordered dinner. We requested that salads please come before food. Assured that would happen. 45 mins go by, no app, no salads. Frustrated at this point. Finally all food arrives, never saw an app, and food shows up with salads. I made it known I was unhappy and apps and salad were removed from check. The food was good but the service was so horrendous that it’s hard to stomach going back.

Staff was really knowledgeable and seemed to have good processes in place to prevent cc and ensure the GF menu was celiac safe. Did not have any issues.

Went to the restaurant on Easter. Was very busy but had no problems with my order. Didn't get sick and neither did my other Celiac family member. Food is on the pricier side so I wouldn't recommend this as an everyday restaurant but I personally had no troubles.

Their gf menu is HUGE! And it includes things like pasta and dessert (not just meat and salad)! It is pretty pricey, but the food is delicious and I love having so many options!

Ate at the Reston, VA location last night and it was a terrible experience. The service was sub-par, however, the worst part was that I was blatantly glutened!!! There were 2 pieces of gluten-filled gnocchi in my supposedly GF chicken primavera pasta (which is prepared with certified GF Barilla pasta) Needless to say I am sick. Thank goodness my intolerance doesn’t cause me to be to be hospitalized. I know that many others would be much worse off then I am. Their GF menu is extensive but I will have a very difficult time convincing myself to go back. So disappointing.

My sisters were visiting from Wichita and our server, who was amazing, pointed out that he too was from Wichita - wish I could remember his name, because he was so knowledgeable about the gluten free menu and he brought out gluten free bread before the meal and brought out chocolate covered strawberries after. He gluten free bread was amazing!!! We enjoyed an amazing meal!

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 service at this location leaves a little to be desired, but you just can’t beat the selection of GF options. I’ve eaten at various CH locations many, many times over the past few years and never once had an issue. Their chopped wedge salad, short rib risotto, and turkey burger are stand-out favorites.

Great menu and delicious food! I felt comfortable with the menu choices and the server seemed knowledgeable. He apologized that they were out of gf bread—and I was just happy to know it existed for the next time in there!

We were in the area for vacation. Daughter with celiac and husband with celiac and anaphylactic tree nut allergy. GF bread was the best we’ve ever had and drunken Mexican shrimp were great too. Great service, food and wine options. We went here twice in one week. Wish there was one of these up North. Highly recommend.

Would like to recommend “Cooper’s Hawk Winery and Restaurant in North Naples Florida,” there are other locations as well! I booked on open table and when I arrive the hostess said to me, “I just wanted to confirm that you are GF and have a nut allergy, your server and the Chef have already been notified!” Woahhhhhh! I was so impressed as she walked us to the table and placed a small folded card on the table which had my dietary restriction and was left on the table! The GF menu was 5 pgs and included a drink selection! I was also given a chart to cross check for my nut allergy! I order a tossed salad which was huge and I could have split, as it was that big! My entree was Chicken Madeira which tastes as good as it looked! I had cheese cake for desert! My only complaint was the gf bread which was available, but may have been made in a facility with nuts, so I was unable to have! Since it is a winery, we were given free sampling’s before we decided on our wine! I can not even begin to tell u how special this restaurant is if u have Celiac Disease or any allergies! I highly recommend!

This was our first time here and we already love this place! We were pleased to find that they had a dedicated GF menu and they even had burgers on it with the bun! Our server Joanna attentive, knowledgeable and addressed every concern. We also joined the wine club so we will definitely be back! 5 stars!!!!

I’ve been here several times and did ok, but it only takes one waiter for me never to return again. He just didn’t care to listen and must of thought my requesting GF was purely a diet thing. I didn’t trust my food and I was sick before I even left the place.

Edited: Sexmcond visit was horrible and I wont eat there anymore. The server seemed annoyed with my questions & needs, was not very careful when serving mixed meals (mine was the only GF meal, yet it was trayed with everything else) and didnt even remember who at the table ordered GF. She even gave me regular bread! I was ill before we even left the restaurant. It was a long ride home to the Madison area, and I was sick from glutening for days. Previous review from first visit: Excellent service!! Celiac friendly! Fresh, delicious GF bread!! A new area favorite!!

I was so glad to find a classy restaurant with gluten free options while visiting family! Atmosphere was great, the staff professional and attentive, and the food was awesome! The staff was informed about gluten free needs and had an extensive menu (and desserts!!), which was posted on their website and easy to look over ahead of time. We had a caesar salad for an appetizer, which has pesto in it (delicious), chicken giardiniera, and lemon ice wine cheesecake. So good!

Cooper's Hawk has an extensive gluten free menu including appetizers and dessert! They have amazing wine to order by the glass, bottle, or flight at the table. They have wine tastings at the front of restaurant and they're always amazing! I've yet to get sick at a Cooper's Hawk (I frequently went to the Kansas City and St. Louis locations prior to moving to the east coast).

After reading other reviews and looking at the menu I decided to give this place a try while on vacation. Hands down best meal I have ever had in a restaurant since being diagnosed. The GF bun they serve as bread before your meal is so good. I was lucky to get one to take with me. 😁 I had chicken madeira with mashed potatoes and asparagus and it was AMAZING. I wish we had one of these restaurants back home because I would be eating there at least once a week that’s how good it was.
