    Excellent food. Extensive GF menu. Delicious appetizers (Mexican shrimp, Thai spring rolls, salads). Tasty mains (ahi tuna, risotto to die for, great burgers). Amazing GF bread. They are very knowledgeable about cross contamination. Number or great desserts to choose from. Highly recommended.

    Cooper's Hawk has a separate, well-produced gluten-free menu that looks similar to their regular menu. There are so many choices and the servers are so well informed about gluten-free diets and are so helpful. So far, the best menu, options, and service in our new gluten-free experience.

    Food was excellent, service experience was poor to downright rude (example: when being seated we asked for a larger table to accommodate our party, which we had made reservations for months in advance. Instead of saying "sure, but you may need to wait a few more minutes for a table" the retort was snarky, "well there was no mention of a table request when you made your reservation, this is where we seat you". We had never dined there before, how do we know you take a 4-top and add extra chairs and squish everyone in? We then had to argue the point and finally were moved to another table). I would return for takeout only. They do have an extensive GF menu, and it tastes great. If you or someone in your party is vegetarian, you're almost out of luck. (Most items are made with chicken stock or other meat-related ingredient so you can't just omit the meat item in the dish). In the future our group will return to Season's 52 for our annually work holiday dinner, which also has great food and MUCH better service.

    My favorite for GF options. I love the Parmesan crusted chicken and the mashed potatoes are so good. For an appetizer the lettuce wraps with cashew sauce were excellent. It's the one restaurant I can go to and order off a real GF dedicated menu, order a delicious meal, and not feel different being GF. I've eaten there many times and have had no problems.

    The food here is really good although portions are small and expensive. We waited 30 minutes for an appetizer of hummus and vegetables. Dinner, came after an hour. The salmon was the $33 and the size of a hot dog. If you have lots of time and money this is a good place because the food is good, but otherwise skip it. I am going to try to include pictures of tiny desserts.

    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.

    Coppers hawk has amazing wine! the menu is pretty large. They brought me a #glutenfree roll before dinner. the reason for below 5 stars is that one of the meals "parmesan crusted chicken " includes Diana's potatoes. this is a premade potato pancake basically that had bread crumbs. If I had not asked what they were they would have served to me. ask for Mary's potatoes. They are gluten free. otherwise no complaints!

    Gluten free review: Although they have a gluten free menu and I'm very clear with my server that this is a serious allergy, not a choice, I get sick here. Every time. We finally cancelled our wine membership, when I realized I was still getting sick drinking their wine at home. When asked why we we're cancelling, I told them about my gluten issue. I was then told that NONE of their WINE is gluten free, as they use wheat in the filtering process. Really??? And no where on the gluten free menu is that mentioned. This is such a fun place and I love wine tasting, but this is not acceptable. It's totally deceptive and dangerous. I lose days when I am exposed to gluten. I wonder if the managers and staff even know this.

    They have an extensive GF menu but no systems in place to take any particular care of customers with celiac. I was brought regular food and told, "Everything on that plate is gluten safe." Luckily there were other burgers at our table and I could tell my roll was not GF, but I don't trust this restaurant & do not recommend. They need to review their processes.

    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.

    The waitress knew I have celiac disease and carried regular bread and my glass of water in the same hand with the glass touching the bread. Then proceeded to try to put the bread down right in front of me. We made her take the bread and water away and explained why. My husband asked her if she had been trained on how to handle gluten-free meals. She said no. We explained what happened to the front of the house manager who assured us that he would personally take care of things and that our gluten-free meals would be served by a manager. I decided to stay because of his assurances that all would be safe and it was my husband's birthday. The food was NOT brought to our table by a manager and they sent a different server every time. The food was NOT safe and now I am sick as a dog! I will NEVER go there again.

    Joined wine club since they offer GF. Never had problem here. Love the GF bread they bring me while the rest of my family enjoy the regular pretzel bread. I always get the GF short rib risotto. I'm tempted by the other options, but I can't seem to say no to risotto. Has mushrooms which I typically don't eat anywhere else, but I usually eat about half of them & the rest of my bowl is empty. So filling. You must order the GF s'mores budino. It's heavenly.

    This is my go-to restaurant for gluten-free dining. The food is delicious, and I know I can eat there safely, without the threat of cross-contamination or getting sick. The dedicated gluten-free menu has a lot of options, including appetizers and desserts. I do not care for their gluten-free pasta. It comes watered-down and lacks flavor. The last time I ordered a gf pasta dish, I had to send it back. I wish Cooper's Hawk would use different hamburger buns. The ones they have now crumble, and sometimes they taste freezer-burned. It is impossible to eat a hamburger without using a knife and fork. I also wish they'd find a way to get a dedicated fryer for french fries. Right now, if I want a burger, I go to Red Robin.Otherwise, it's Cooper's Hawk for me. Their white chocolate truffles and dark chocolate truffles are gluten free, which is nice, but they do not taste nearly as good as they once did. They must have changed the recipe. Wait staff is usually good. Find someone you like, get their schedule and then ask for that server when you come in. Otherwise, the service can be sketchy -- never bad, it's just that some servers are better than others. For example, on one of my birthdays, they brought the usual white chocolate truffle and chocolate dipped strawberry, gratis, with a candle. That's their usual thing to do. However, since I no longer care for the chocolate there, I would have liked to have ordered an additional dessert from the menu. My husband would have ordered something, too, along with enjoying the truffle. I also would have liked coffee. The server just plopped the plate down and walked away without asking if there might be something else we'd like, or if my husband would like to order dessert.Not only were we ill-served, the server lost money for Cooper's Hawk. So, I gave my dessert to hubby and skipped my birthday celebration. Cooper's Hawk: I love ya, but you still have a way to go to earn 5-stars.

    I hate writing this review because this used to be my go to gluten free restaurant. I ordered gluten free pasta and before I left I looked at the box and it had a GF written on box so I didn't bother looking inside before I drove the 45 minutes home. Once I got home I realized that they gave me regular pasta BUT wrote GF on it anyways. So so disappointing! This is the 3rd time this has happened to me recently and I can no longer trust them. How could you write GF on a box that is full of gluten food!
