They have a large GF menu, but between my mom and I they brought out: a salad with a hidden crouton (my mom Will now be sick), a gluten filled potato dish we caught (manager came out and apologized and then fixed), and a gluten filled dessert (which I caught and they then fixed). Mom got her dinner after we all finished, and I’m getting my dessert after everyone finished.
Excellent food. Great GF roll/bun. Expansive GF menu. We ate in the bar area. I had a chicken sandwich with GF bun. My son had the Caesar salad and a burger with GF bun. Server was excellent. Knowledgeable staff. Unfortunately, fries are not gluten free because of cross contamination.
I've been here several times within the last month and the food is delicious and no issues. I've had the cheeseburger the gluten free bread and the appetizer Mexican drunken shrimp. Both servers were very knowledgeable of what I could and could not have.
Went here for Father's Day with my celiac husband. Our server was very knowledgeable about GF and their menu has lots of choices. They also bring gluten free bread which is the one my husband has tried. Husband still feels good today so there doesn't seem to have been any cross contamination.
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!
While in the past we have had a great experience here, this weekend we had a HORRIBLE experience. My gluten free salad came with bread on it. In addition, a family member's (who is anaphylactic to tomatoes and we told the waitress this many times) sandwich came with a tomato on it and we only found out after he took a bite!!! The manager was most apologetic and we received a free meal, but it was a very scary experience.
Amazing!!!! I went here for a family dinner recently and was really happy with the gluten free menu. SO many options! I had sea scallops and asparagus and jasmine rice and it was delicious!! Then I had the gluten free brownie and ice cream for desert which was incredible. Overall, super happy with my experience here.
When I was asking about ingredients, the waitress asked if I had allergies. I replied yes that I have celiac disease and must have gluten free (I wasn't aware of a special GF MENU). She DID NOT mention any special menu or suggestions. I also asked for just plain mashed potatoes and I got au graitin potatoes! Perhaps there needs to be more training of their servers!!!
Warm gluten free bread while you wait for your meal made my day. Got the burger which used the same bread so was a little too much of the same thing and tasted very salty for some reason but overall was good nonetheless. Had to go for the gf brownie dessert since I pretty much never get to have dessert at a restaurant...absolutely delicious. Ginger lemongrass tea is amazing too. The gf menu is beyond impressive. It doesn't just say which items on the regular menu are gluten free, but they actually make separate gf versions of many of the entrees. With such a massive gf menu I was surprised they didn't have a gf beer. Great experience overall.
The waitress knew that they “take it very seriously” and couldn’t explain more. He came out right away and let us know they change gloves, have a dedicated grill and utensils, Mark the food, and have specific people that are allowed to handle the food. And the gf bread they bring us soooooo good!
No issues getting sick and have been a few times. One waiter needed to be reminded apparently of gluten free with an item on the gluten free menu was ordered.. He brought me two gluten free shrimp after and said he wouldn't charge me 🤦🏼♀️ this most recent time I just made sure to say gf with each item to be safe. I haven't sick any of times I have eaten here.
Cooper’s Hawk has an extensive GF menu, their wait staff are extremely knowledgeable about allergies, their food is amazing and I’ve eaten here multiple times now without getting sick. They have outdoor seating, a standing wine bar, a regular bar and formal seating. I would highly recommend this spot!
Told waiter I was Celiac and ordered off gluten free menu. When meal came out nothing was stated about gluten free nor did it have an identifier as gluten free like usual. I tested the pasta and it found gluten. Avoid!
First time I visited, on a Saturday evening, the waiter asked up-front if there were any food allergies at the table (I wish more would do this). Second time on a Wednesday business lunch, the waitress did not ask. Many gluten free options. Wait staff was very good, but it took a while for the food, both times. They were out of a few things, too. They are new and it seems that the kitchen management still needs some work. Food was good to very good but not excellent; however, there is great decor and ambiance. Sweet wines leave something to be desired, in my opinion, but the Sweet Red is pretty good. Again, lots of options, so yay for that!
Our waiter was amazing. Very knowledgeable. Brought out gluten free bread and dessert for my birthday that was gf. They have quite a few options, I ordered the scallops and they were delicious. It’s a bit pricey, but worth it. I am not celiac, but avoid eating gluten so I always like to add that because my sensitivity level may differ from celiacs.
I've been safe here so many times and the wine is so good however at a dinner I ordered the gluten free cheesecake and a glass of wine (cause really dessert sometimes should be the meal). I was so sick. Now I am just hesitant to eat here at all. The wine is cool.
This used to be a favorite spot, but then I was served lettuce wraps with fried wontons in it. Of course I didn’t realize until I ate half of it. The waitress put the order in correctly but the kitchen messed up the order.
Waitress was extremely knowledgeable about cross contamination and assured me others with celiac eat there often and that the kitchen has a dedicated gluten free space. Kitchen manager even came out to thank us for trusting them with allergies as they take it very seriously and they appreciated us choosing to eat there.
Was very disappointed with my meal here on 7/30/19. I ordered a gluten free risotto and talked about the severity of celiac and I was assured that the kitchen had a procedure so there would be no cross contamination. "don't worry we handle this a lot here, you'll be safe". There was many errors with the ordering and they were bringing two of each appetizer. Then when my short rib risotto came the plating was horrible and it looked like there was caked on food that was not washed off the bowl. When I started eatting the $26 dish I found random other food in my meal. This made me feel uncomfortable because if that made it into the bowl what else may have came into contact. I informed the manager and sent my food back. The manager apolagise and did give a complimentary dinner for next time (won't feel comfortable eatting here again though)
THE WORST! I ordered a gluten free chicken sandwich and I asked to make sure it was gluten free. They assured me it was and I started eating. The manager saw, but I already had taken multiple bites. I ended up sick for almost a whole week. Do not go here.
I used to be a member but the last few times I went it was clear something was going on in their kitchen. Last TWO times I left feeling ill. I just think they don’t take Celiac disease and nondairy seriously so I canceled the membership and have moved on permanently. Very disappointing!
OMG! Outstanding! Even just the gf bun on the burger makes this my favorite restaurant without doubt! Drunken shrimp is a favorite appetizer, wine tasting is fun and informative. VERY knowledgeable about CC. Never sick
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 is my go-to for fancy GF food. There is a separate GF menu and staff are knowledgeable. You can also order off the regular menu and have substitutions and omissions to make it GF. The candied bacon and artisan cheeses with a GF bun substitution is a must for the appetizer course. Mexican drunken shrimp and chopped wedge salad are a nice fresh duo to start a meal, but may end up filling you by the main course. Don’t miss out on trying the shrimp and scallop risotto and finish up with the flourless chocolate torte.
I’ll start this review off by stating the food was good, and most importantly, safe. Would I come back for the food probably, but the service was some of the worst I’ve ever had. To start, they lost our reservation. No big deal, they made it right cause I had proof on my email. We were seated, and the waiter was slow. No biggie, they were slammed. Drinks took 20 mins to get. Afterwards, apps were ordered. About 10 mins after apps were order we ordered dinner. We requested that salads please come before food. Assured that would happen. 45 mins go by, no app, no salads. Frustrated at this point. Finally all food arrives, never saw an app, and food shows up with salads. I made it known I was unhappy and apps and salad were removed from check. The food was good but the service was so horrendous that it’s hard to stomach going back.
Went to the restaurant on Easter. Was very busy but had no problems with my order. Didn't get sick and neither did my other Celiac family member. Food is on the pricier side so I wouldn't recommend this as an everyday restaurant but I personally had no troubles.
Ate at the Reston, VA location last night and it was a terrible experience. The service was sub-par, however, the worst part was that I was blatantly glutened!!! There were 2 pieces of gluten-filled gnocchi in my supposedly GF chicken primavera pasta (which is prepared with certified GF Barilla pasta) Needless to say I am sick. Thank goodness my intolerance doesn’t cause me to be to be hospitalized. I know that many others would be much worse off then I am. Their GF menu is extensive but I will have a very difficult time convincing myself to go back. So disappointing.
My sisters were visiting from Wichita and our server, who was amazing, pointed out that he too was from Wichita - wish I could remember his name, because he was so knowledgeable about the gluten free menu and he brought out gluten free bread before the meal and brought out chocolate covered strawberries after. He gluten free bread was amazing!!! We enjoyed an amazing meal!
Went for wine tasting and it was great and very affordable! Then we got dinner and they have an entire gluten free menu. The waiter brought me gluten free bread and it was delicious!! Very impressed by the options and how good my penne Rustica tasted
They do a nice job, I have had baby showers, rehearsal dinner and much more here and I haven’t gotten sick. I did have one experience where I didn’t feel confident in my server and the food brought out to me and the manager offered to remake but I chose to not and they gave us a card for a meal on them.
The service at this location leaves a little to be desired, but you just can’t beat the selection of GF options. I’ve eaten at various CH locations many, many times over the past few years and never once had an issue. Their chopped wedge salad, short rib risotto, and turkey burger are stand-out favorites.
Great menu and delicious food! I felt comfortable with the menu choices and the server seemed knowledgeable. He apologized that they were out of gf bread—and I was just happy to know it existed for the next time in there!
We were in the area for vacation. Daughter with celiac and husband with celiac and anaphylactic tree nut allergy. GF bread was the best we’ve ever had and drunken Mexican shrimp were great too. Great service, food and wine options. We went here twice in one week. Wish there was one of these up North. Highly recommend.
