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!

Had an amazing dinner here. They have an extensive gluten free menu and are very courteous to gluten free clientele. While bread was being brought out for everyone else, the waitress asked if I would like a complimentary gluten free roll to join them. This was a first.. The roll was brought out warm and it was large and soft. We ordered gluten free drunken shrimp and thai lettuce wraps. They were absolutely delicious and creative. For my entrée, I ordered seafood risotto. It was fantastic and I don't think that I left one grain of rice. They even had 5 gluten free desserts on the menu, but I passed because I was so stuffed. I love that they are very understanding and attentive to our condition and needs. I would be a regular customer if I lived nearby..

I had a wonderful dinner here! The GF menu is extensive and they even brought GF bread to the table to start. It was a bit pricey but worth it to feel safe and pampered!

Probably the best GF menu I’ve seen in years, wide variety, check my pics. Service was terrible, it was a 2+ hour lunch , but food was excellent. I got the bacon wrapped shrimp app, shrimp & scallop risotto, so good.

The separate GF menu had many options--so many it was hard to decide what to get. It even had two appetizer and several dessert options. The warm GF bread at the beginning was a pleasant surprise. I had the bacon-shrimp appetizer and then chicken piccata. No issues after.

Although the restaurant has an extensive gluten free menu, keep your guard up. They were overworked and gave me a gluten containing dish even though I tripled checked.

They were nice after the fact.. gifted our party a couple of meals.

Great restaurant. Separate gluten free menu had lots of options, even for dessert, and there was gluten free bread. Our waiter didn’t seem super knowledgeable about allergies, but I made sure to be very clear and didn’t get sick. The food was delicious.

Cooper’s hawk is an all around amazing experience. The food is fantastic and the wine is amazing. Separate gluten free menu and wait staff takes precautions. You can ask for GF bread when they serve it to the table (don’t think that’s listed on menu). 10/10 recommended!

This place is AMAZING! Two full pages of a GF menu, brings out GF bread and butter for free, and the staff is so knowledgeable about wheat/gluten. I had bacon wrapped shrimp that were fabulous. Parmesan crusted chicken was the best. Also they have more than a few desert options. I tried the s’more pudding/custard with toasted marshmallow on top. Wow! Everything was perfect. We’re going one more time before leaving town this week. If you want a wonderful waitress ask for Sabrina. She is great!

This place was awesome. Gluten free bread for starters, then gluten free chicken pecatta, which was fantastic. Then had choice of multiple deserts to choose from. Best meal out ever.

I had an incredible experience at Cooper’s Hawk! They took extreme care in the kitchen and even the manager came over to ask for patience while they cleaned and prepped the kitchen for my GF order. I was handed a lengthy exclusively GF menu with everything from appetizers and salads, to sandwiches and burgers, to an extensive list of entrees for lunch and dinner. There were even GF kids menu options.

I was offered GF bread while the rest of the table was given pretzel bread. The GF bread was fresh and fluffy and really tasty. I can’t even remember the last time I was given bread before appetizers like that. I usually have to sit and watch everyone else eat. The server also brought me fresh plates, napkin, and cutlery so there was no risk of exposure from what was sitting on the table beforehand.

I ordered the lettuce wraps and a mojito as my appetizer. They were both phenomenal! The drink was refreshing and not overpowering. The wraps were fresh and crisp and full of flavor.

For my meal I ordered the short rib risotto. GF risotto is so difficult to find that I was thrilled to see this on the menu. The meat was tender and the sauce was hearty and deeply delicious.

I was too full to enjoy dessert but they had several GF desserts on the menu, too. I can’t wait to go back!

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.

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.
