I've been here a few times and service and food is very inconsistent. My meal tonight wasn't good. Along with gluten, I'm having issues with egg and dairy which I kept informing the waiter. Although the waiter tried to help, he kept running back to talk to the chef about the ingredients. It would have been better to have the chef or manager come speak with me. Gluten free bread & butter was brought out, which I could not have. My shaved Brussels sprout salad came out with Parmesan cheese, which I had to remove the cheese, and the dressing was placed on the side, which I was informed at serving that I could not have. I would not have chosen a raw and shaved Brussels sprouts if communicated to me in advance. My filet mignon was average... not good quality for price. The kale side was drenched and overcooked...terrible. They forgot the roasted broccoli and had to have kitchen prepare after we were all served. I didn't realize until it was too late, they put butter on the broccoli! Don't go here. Very noisy, always cold and very inconsistent. (Party of four, no desserts, 2 1/2 hours...very slow service..waiter could never be found).
Extensive gluten free menu. Large, crowded restaurant on Thanksgiving day. I typically avoid restaurants during busy times. The server assured me of their policies to avoid cross contact. GF bread brought out prior to meal separately from regular breaf for others at my table. Enjoyed the chicken lettuce wrap appetizer and chicken madeira entree with potatoes and asparagus. Everything was delicious and good sized portions. I am a highly sensitive celiac and did not experience any symptoms.
Avoid Cooper's Hawk if you have celiac disease. I ordered the gluten feee lettuce wraps, and unknowingly, I was served a plate that was a mix of gf and gluten full. I ate two lettuce wraps and was horribly sick. Don't risk it. They tout themselves as safely gluten free, but they make horrible mistakes.
They have an extensive gluten free menu so at least they try. However they had two items on their gf menu that the server had to come back and tell us were actually not gf. We ordered the hummus and pita plate because we were excited to have gf pita. They brought out the platter and said "we don't actually have gf pita so we bring a gf roll instead". We wouldn't have ordered it if we knew that. They have a few gf pasta dishes so we were happy about that. But none of them were vegetarian. We ordered one without the shrimp and meat but they charged us full price anyway. They bring you a gf roll to the table which was nice. Not the best tasting but always a treat to get gf bread. They told us they keep things separate in the kitchen. I am hoping they do. However my celiac son was feeling very sick after we ate here. The food wasn't that good, it was very pricey and we are not sure if he was glutened. So for these reasons we will not be returning.
We went here last night to celebrate my daughters birthday (both her and I celiac). They assured us that every safety precaution was used to avoid cross contamination. We had the chicken lettuce wraps, delicious. We both ordered the Parmesan crusted chicken and were enjoying it until i found a large piece of pasta under my green beans. My worst nightmare. We notified the server, who notified the manager, who notified the chef. All were very apologetic and seemed to understand the gravity of the situation. The manager comped our meal and we left. Of course I was gluttened terribly and my daughter was also even without the pasta on her plate. Needless to say, we won't be going back here anytime soon. Kudos to Mike the manager for understanding how serious this situation was.
Delightful gluten free short rib risotto.plus gluten free bread for your carb fix. And delicious wine to boot.
This was probably one of the top 5 best GF restaurants meals I've ever had. They have an amazing GF menu, and two managers swung by our table to see if I had questions. They assured me that they have a separate allergen-free prep line in their kitchen. Meal was incredible and I felt great afterwards, too.
Careless in the kitchen. Ordered the chicken piccata from the GF menu and told the server that it is an allergy. Our food was brought out and we began eating. I took a couple of bites and then noticed I had a noodle in my mouth. I flag the server down and asked if they put GF noodles under the chicken medallions. He looked flustered and took my plate to the kitchen. 7 minutes later I had a new plate and was told my previous plate was not gluten free. He apologized and expressed that he had put my allergy on the food ticket. Needless to say hours later I was awakened by a very upset stomach. The wine was delicious. We we try the other location in Waterview. I have heard they are great.
Attended a private dinner where everything was supposed to be gluten free -- the staff was ill-informed, and the chefs careless. Several people, including myself, got sick after.
Best service I've had by far! They had an extensive gluten free menu and the staff was extremely knowledgable about how to avoid cross contamination. Delicious food and I felt great afterward!
The food was amazing and the server was very knowledgeable. I am also pleased to report that I didn't get sick which is always a win when eating out.
The food was wonderful. I had the parmesan crusted chicken and I would give it 5 stars.
The Restaurant has gluten free rolls!! Great Gluten Free Selection.
The food is good, they take gluten allergy very seriously.
The best food! They even have a gf roll to serve while everyone else is eating bread!
Varied and delicious upscale restaurant. Knowledgeable of gluten free needs!
I LOVE this place! Their gluten free menu has multiple choices and as someone who has multiple food allergies I have not any problems with getting questions answered and making substitutions. The gluten free chocolate cake is indulgent! Can’t go wrong here!!
You will not get sick here. They have a separate gf menu and are VERY knowledgable. One of the most knowledgable places ive ever ate at and i was dxed with celiac 15 years ago. It is pricey for the meals for sure and at its core a pretentious wine tasting place. I went there for my bday when i noticed they had a gf flourless choclate cake with whip cream, berries and a rasberry sauce. I would NOT order any entrees from here. Its a wine tasting place so theyre desserts and appetizers are what most people order with wine and not entrees. On a good note, the entrees ate the pricey thing. The appetizers and desserts are more like $$ than $$$. For an appetizer i ordered the mexican drunken shrimp. The entrees arent worth the money in terms of taste, but the appetizers and desserts were beyond incredible. Highly highly recommend this place for its safety, but also the taste of the food. Next time though im only doing the appetizers and desserts. Both of which have plenty of options for someone with celiac.
The server told us that the owners kids have celiac. They were very knowledgeable.
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.
I thoroughly enjoyed eating at Coopers Hawk in Brookfield last night! I had a FULL menu to choose from, including a few app choices, many main dishes, and a few dessert options...not to mention the ability to eat bread at the same time as my non-gf wife! Food and wine were great.
Staff was very knowledgeable. They gave a huge GF menu. I've been there twice with no side effects. Ice had: hummus w/veggies, tai lettuce wraps, Greek shrimp chopped salad, shrimp and scallop risotto, and crustless lemon ice wine cheese cake. Was there last night and the even brought me a small loaf of GF bread. Outstanding place. Wine is awesome also.
They had a separate GF menu with a variety of options. Instead of a normal bread and butter tasting, they provided a GF bun with butter. I felt it was so-so but chewy. For my appetizer I had the Viognier wine and shaved Brussel sprout salad. Both were excellent. For my main entree I ordered the roasted butternut squash with brown butter cream sauce from the pasta section. It was lite and full of flavor. For dessert I ordered the chocolate and flight of wine pairing. The chocolates were superb, rich, and dense. We picked the wines (blueberry, cranberry & passion fruit). My favorite was the passion fruit and blueberry. The staff was very accommodating and understanding. No issues at all. I plan to go back.
My daughter has celiac. Staff is very attentive and careful, the food is amazing and there are tons of gluten free choices.
I let server know I have allergies to gluten and soy. He took our order. He came back a couple of minutes later to take it again. He did not want to mess up. Ordered a Caesar salad no croutons. I ordered a filet mignon with mashed potatoes. My salad came out with croutons. After I pointed this out they brought me another one. My entre came out before I was done my salad. Huge pet peeve of mine. My steak came out with fried and battered onions on top. This too was not gluten free. They took my meal back and brought another one. I asked to speak to the manager. She came over and told me they take allergies very seriously. I told her both my salad and entre came out wrong so it didn’t seem to be the case. They did comp most of our meals. But no, I will never go back.
I told my waiter that I was Celiac and he knew my requirements immediately. However, I was brought brioche that was accompanied by a knife that was dirty. The knife had crumbs and grease stains on it. I told the waiter why it was important that I not eat bread cut with the same knife. He skirted the issue and then returned to the kitchen. The issue went unaddressed, which demonstrated to me that a real awareness of the core issues was not there. I love this restaurant and have been a wine club Member for many years. I am sorely disappointed.
Excellent gluten free menu. However, server knowledge is very poor. They asked if my one year old had an allergy or preference. The first time we were there they accidentally served her wheat pasta. We tried again, hoping it was a fluke, and they served her cross contaminated fries. Scary.
I ordered the risotto and short ribs. I tested with my Nima sensor, it said gluten found. I showed my server, who showed the manager. They brought me a new meal, which tested safe. The server was very willing to answer questions & ask the chef. I truly believe it was a kitchen mistake. I even called ahead and they seemed very knowledgeable. I would go back again, only with my Nima sensor.
So so so happy to have found out this very nice place that take gluten free seriously! They actually had GF items in the kids menu for my celiac 3 year old! I called ahead and talked to kitchen manager and was told they do ALL GF in separate pans ,etc. Waitress confirmed same when we got there. they even had gluten free bread thay wasn't a hard for a 3 year old to eat Udi roll! So Happy!
This was my third time eating here md I’ve had a great experience every time. There are lots of choices on the GF menu from entrees, pastas, burgers and salads and the wine is quite good as well. I’m really glad this restaurant is another great GF option in Reston
My girlfriend and I both have Celiac disease. She has eaten here on multiple occasions and has never had a problem. I ate here tonight and the food was amazing. We made a reservation and let the kitchen know before we arrived that allergy prep was necessary and everyone knew when we sat down that this was the situation. They have a gluten free menu. I am impressed with their execution. For me this place knows how to address Celiac preparation. You should try it for yourself. I fully recommend the Mexican Drunken Shrimp.
My family and I recently dined with them for my birthday, my mother, brother and myself all have celiac along with other autoimmune issues. Every single one of us got sick, having had different entrees and not touching the bread before the meal. I had the vegan gluten free option which contains hummus and cooked vegetables with rice, they originally brought it out with pita on the plate and took it back. I didn't complain while there but I think other celiacs should be aware that this kitchen did not do a good job catering to celiac needs.
huge gluten free menu with lots of desert choices. they can bring delicious and hot GF bread to the table when asked. The kids menu has lots of gluten free choices as well - burgers with buns, Mac and cheese, ....the food was great. The servers were knowledgeable about allergies
Love this place! Excellent gluten free menu with drinks included (an often overlooked item) and great atmosphere. The staff is knowledgeable about allergens. I have never had a bad experience here. This has become our special occasion restaurant!
The manager came over and told me how safe the kitchen and food were for celiacs. They had a fantastic GF menu. I was so excited to eat out. Fast forward that night and I was so sick. It was not a minor episode from a little cc. It was full blown. I will never trust them again.
Love that they give you endless GF bread at the table LIKE NORMAL GLUTINOUS PEOPLE. But don't fill up, because the real food is amazing. Bacon wrapped "drunken" shrimp, lettuce wraps (big as a meal but priced as an app), short rib risotto and burgers are all worth writing home about. You can also get wine samples at the table, free of charge.
I was recently diagnosed with celiac disease & this was my first restaurant experience since being diagnosed. I could not have had a better experience. My wife mentioned that I had celiac when she made the reservation & when we arrived at the table the gluten free menu was waiting for me. There is a VERY wide variety of appetizers & entrees so I felt like I had a ton of choices. There was a breaded & fried calamari appetizer that they were more than happy to prepare non-breaded & sautéed rather than fried. Overall the food & wine was wonderful as was the ambience. They also have gluten free bread! I will be returning to this place often!
We have eaten at Cooper's Hawk quite a few times with three strictly gluten-free people. I love this restaurant and the food, but it's not totally safe. Once our party was served regular bread despite gf menus (which we sent back), once my dad was served a regular meal. That was OK because he's gf to support the rest of us. On this last visit they gave me regular pasta, despite requesting gf menus and detailing very carefully to the waiter who was gf and who wasn't at our table. I was tired and didn't question my meal when it arrived. The manager did come to tell me what happened, and apologized and comped my meal, but I ended up sick on my vacation. So, by all means eat here, but be very cautious and double-check what is delivered to the table.
