3 words: Gluten Free Bread!!! My husband and I both avoid gluten (he has celiac disease and I have an intolerance). The menu is clearly marked and there are a lot of options. Server was knowledgeable and friendly. It was a great experience.

GF menu available. I was dining solo was able to grab a seat at the bar, definitely make reservations at the I-drive location. I went on a weekday and it was horribly loud inside the bar area. I come from the winery business and am somewhat used to the loud atmosphere but this was on another level. I had the risotto with scallops. Sever was nice and seemed to understand gluten. Food was tasty but very expensive. White wines left a lot to be desired. It is a nice place for a break from the crazy atmosphere of I-drive.

Amazing meal! I had the grilled chicken sandwich that I was able to eat with a gluten free bun. Gluten free bread and butter was also brought to the table. Great experience with the wait staff in ensuring as little cross contamination as possible. Would eat again!

I had the Parmesan crusted chicken with a lemon butter sauce, green beans and mashed potatoes. Piping hot GF bread was brought to the table. My GF son and I also enjoyed the shrimp appetizer in an amazing guacamole sauce and the salted caramel crembbrule’. The taste of every item was phenomenal, the waiter was extremely knowledgeable and and was able to answer every question I had! Half the menu is GF but even more can be modified to be GF. There is not a dedicated fryer. This is my new favorite Orlando restaurant!

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.

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.

Probably the most extensive GF menu I have seen! Staff was very knowledgeable, manager stopped by the table to see if there were any questions about food preparation. They even brought GF bread before the meal was served. Finally felt like I wasn't missing out and could actually have (almost) anything I wanted, including dessert! Have eaten here several times without any issues!

I had a great experience at Cooper’s Hawk. They have an extensive gluten free menu. Waiter seemed knowledgeable. Each item in the order came with verbal confirmation by the waiter or server that it was gluten free. They even brought me warm, gluten free bread at the same time they brought warm bread for my daughter.

AMAZING! Please go!!!!! I was hesitant at first of course, full gluten free menu for myself. They even brought out gluten free bread as a starter and it was AMAZING. I had to double check it was gluten free, that’s how delicious it was. Ordered appetizers and dinner and no issues! 10/10! Will return again!!
