The food and wine are delicious, but the entrees are definitely overpriced for the amount of food you receive. If you’re hungry, order a pasta dish. I had the medallions, and the portions were small. I do appreciate that they bring out a GF bun while you’re waiting. My daughter loved the bun. They also have a separate GF menu and the server was knowledgeable about celiac.

Update2023- Still good just make sure you tell them clearly about celiac, needing gf, theres a green gf menu. Update sept 2020 some of their ingredients have changed. I have soy allergy and now have very few gf items I can have so sad Update Aug 2020- loveeee parmesan crusted chicken and Mexican drunken shrimp may 2020- Doing Delivery and pu limited menu. Make sure you get gluten free menu and explain u have celiac. If you have more allergies then ask for gluten free allergen menu. They are not very up to date with what has soy. I have gone many times in the past year and ask for that menu as well as Ingredients. My servers have been wonderful. Love the wine and wine tastings. 2019-The food was ok. I wouldnt get the fish again. It took along time to get our food. Its a very pretty place. Update May 2019 I had great service and wonderful lunch

The personal loaf of GF bread alone should make you want to come here. The bread is slightly sweet (maybe honey?) and has a nice texture. The best part is that it’s a normal size unlike most GF rolls. The items that can be made GF are marked on the menu. I had the chicken piccata. The chicken was enjoyable. I’m not a big fan of the side options that are GF, so I went with the mashed potatoes. If you like mashies, you’ll enjoy them.

This restaurant is one of the top gluten-free/friendly facilities I have eaten at over the last 6 years of being gluten-free. They have separate gluten free bread that tastes like the real thing and their gnocchi was to die for. It’s rare to find a gluten-free meal that is this satisfying! They also have a gluten-free dessert menu that we were too full to try but it’s nice knowing every course of the meal can be gluten-free! 10/10 recommend!

Great experience. They even had gluten free bread to bring out before dinner. Lots of their menu options are gluten free. The wine and sparkling wine was all amazing!

The managers and kitchen staff are notified IMMEDIATELY for allergens and Celiac. They bring out separate utensils and bread options at the beginning of the interaction. The staff was notified of my gluten-free needs throughout ALL the courses in my meal. The server was very knowledgeable and understood the severity of my condition and was informed of the menu.

The food was delicious! The complimentary bread was homemade and excellent. I am HIGHLY sensitive to cross-contamination and had no issues throughout my meal. The few things I did order were able to easily be modified by leaving off a garnish or had a delicious substitute. So many choices, high quality food, highly recommend!

This is a quality fine dinning experience catered to every customers needs. The staff is well informed and very accommodating. Very peasant, memorable dining experience!

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 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).

The service was wonderful and the restaurant was very welcoming. My son has Celiac Disease so I can’t personally comment on his food but he ordered the Chicken Madeira and it looked amazing and he says he loved it. He ate everything on his plate so I would have to agree, he enjoyed his dinner. There is a separate gluten free menu with lots of options. His plate was served first and separate from our order. The rest of our us also thoroughly enjoyed our food.

We had an excellent experience at Cooper's Hawk celebrating my birthday. Server was very knowledge about cross contamination and the kitchen protocol for gluten allergies.

We felt very taken care of, and the food itself was fantastic! They subbed the pretzel bread for a very tasty gluten free bread and butter, still warm from the oven!

We got the risotto short ribs and chicken carbonara, which were both fantastic. The penne in the carbonara was cooked al dente and didn't feel like a compromise.

Our only complaint was that the food doesn't come out with any kind of flag to indicate it was indeed gluten free. We understand wanting to make presentation central, but personally I feel that knowing our food is safe is more important.

Wonderful experience and will definitely come again!

Dedicated menu, their risottos are great (short rib risotto is my favorite!). No dedicated fryers so their sandwiches come with fruit but you can sub a veggie if you wish! Their staff there is fabulous.

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..
