Cooper's Hawk Winery & Restaurant - Merrillville
I usually love their lobster bisque, but they put croutons instead of bread on top and it was not good.
Nice place to meet friends for a delicious dinner. Tony was a great server. He made sure that we didn’t feel like we were rushed to leave. He said to enjoy our time visiting. Thanks Tony!!! We did enjoy our evening with our friends.
We enjoyed our food but the waitperson was less than enthusiastic.
Great experience and good every time we go!! Favorite appetizer-cheese and candied bacon!! Good mixed drinks and of course, great wine! Love that I can open a bottle and take it home it I don’t finish it 👍🏻
Would have been better for us if there hadn’t been a very loud party in the party room next to us!
Great food and great service
I've never experienced this before but for the first time in my entire history with Cooper's Hawk the Steak Medallions were tough and fatty. Afterwards I learned my husband's were like that the week before when we were there. I hope this feedback is useful for CH!
Great thanksgiving dinner!
Our food was hot and delicious! Staff was prompt and friendly despite the busy time on a holiday!
Service and quality of food did not disappoint at yet another Coopers Hawk location.
Hit or miss place. Some food cooked perfect, some very over done. Service was good especially considering our large table.
Always an experience dining and wining at my fave spot
Great Experience!!Great Service!!Great Food!!
Food is a little pricy but very good. Can’t afford to come very often. Wine is of course great. Service is always outstanding.
Our dinner reservation was at 8:15. We checked at 8:10pm. Didnt get seated until 8:45pm.
Our server Erin was really good and knowledgeable about the menu and the wines.
Food, wine & service was excellent,
Reservations definitely recommend. The food came out pretty quickly. Desserts were amazing
Wonderful experience minus the interaction with the head of the house. Made the reservation for 4 adults in the comments I wrote "plus 1 baby". Never have I counted our 5 month old when making a reservation. Well the lady we checked in with made a snooty comment to the couple we were meeting who arrived first. Then we we arrived she hardly acknowledged us. Finally I just started speaking at she looked at the lady sitting is and said this is the party of 4 but really 5. I thought the comment was odd, but once we sat down and the couple we were meeting explained what happened to them it all made sense. Every one else was extremely friendly and kind including the lady who sat us. Just the check in woman was terribly unpleasant.
Usually a tolerable amount of noise, but every once in a while a big party ruins the ambiance. Friendly service. Never have ordered a dish I didn’t like. My friend orders off the gluten-free menu; they mistakenly brought her regular pasta, but gave her a complimentary salad while they fixed the issue.
Good service, food, and wine.
We keep coming back and not sure why.... the food is good, but the Open Table reservation, put your name in with cell phone text never makes any sense. It never the time frame the hostesses say it is. It appears that they either forget or purposely put other people ahead of those waiting. Every time I have gone, it is not just us that says it, but others complain of being overlooked or put down on list when arrived first and same number in party. The hostess situation there is awful... it is the face of the restaurant and they are not professional, efficient or competent. Only reason restaurant is success is that it is the only "gig" in the mall, but for us, we will leave mall and visit somewhere close. 5,6, 7th time NOT a charm!!!
The food was outstanding! Unfortunately the service was less than adequate. It took a long time to have our order taken. I never got a refill on water. I had to get another server get our check.
We love the shrimp appetizer and we always split it, and every time we wonder why there are only 5 shrimp and not 6? An odd number just seems..... odd? But very delicious.
Food was excellent, service friendly and prompt
My older son's food was incorrect, my younger son's food came 20 minutes late, my food was cold. I sent back my food and my older son's food. His food came back correct, mine was still cold. They assured me they made it again but it was exactly the same. I sent it back and told them we wanted our check. Was looking forward to lunch that day and it was a very disappointing experience. Not to mention I never had lunch and was starving.
Cooper’s Hawk never fails to satisfy! Food, service, atmosphere, it’s all great. It is a little noisy but that’s because it’s always so busy, because well, they’re great!
Been here a lot as former club members, and usually have a great experience. Our last 2 times have been less than favorable, especially our visit Saturday night. Had reservations at 5pm for my wife and I, got there at 4:45pm. Waiting area and tasting room was busy as expected, so glad we made reservations. Didn’t get seated until 5:20 or so, when we get in the back, the dining area was 1/2 empty! Our server hurried us through our order, twice cutting me off and walking away before I could order the soup I wanted. Our main course took longer than usual to come out, and was less than satisfactory for the price paid. My wife ordered a $35 filet medium that had a heavy char outside and nearly raw inside. The plate came with two unappetizing broccoli stalks and a tiny scoop of potatoes. My short rib risotto had clearly been sitting a while before it was served since the gravy was already gelling up when it arrived. This was a $130 dinner that I really feel didn’t meet that value. Not really sure why popularity equals poor service and quality, but it looks like this CH location is doing just that. Probably going to be a while before we come back for a meal, if at all.
We had an 8:45 reservation on a Friday night and got in a couple minutes early. I had the surf and turf combo with soy ginger ny strip and drunken shrimp, mashed potatoes, and roasted vegetables. It was good, but the bacon on the shrimp was ok. My boyfriend had Parmesan crusted chicken, which was delicious! He didn’t care for the shredded potatoes, I thought they were ok. Dinner comes with pretzel bread and that was really good. Overall, the food was good and I’ll definitely return.
Once again, a good night at the Hawk. The only issue, and it continues to be the only issue, is that this is the loudest upper scale sit down restaurant that i have ever been to. They desperately need some sound absorbing devices installed.
Our first visit, for a birthday celebration. Service was good; so was the wine; and most of the food was excellent -- though one of the dinners wasn't hot. (The deviled egg appetizer was too laden with vinegary sauce, but the amount of candied bacon with it was stingy.) They fixed the cold food, and efficiently. And when we ordered their chocolate truffles for dessert (VERY good), they were gratis for both of us (maybe one because of the birthday; one because of the cold food).
The upholstery in one of the seats in our booth was torn, the stuffing sticking out. That wasn't too cool. Needs a manager's attention, and fixing ASAP. The noise level was a little high for such a nice restaurant (bar too close by), and so the ambience could have been better. Prices a little high, all considered. The kind of place we'd go to only on a special occasion. But we WOULD definitely go back.
Table behind was cursing loudly and were visibly drunk
Always a good time with good drinks and great food
Very good! Our service was fast and tasty!
This is one of my favorite places to come to. I try to come as often as I can because I love the good food, the great wine, and the ambience.
Our server was fantastic!! The wine of the month was my favorite so far! Delicious!! And our food was fabulous as well. Our whole family loves Cooper’s Hawk!!
Food was amazing as always. Filet medallions were delicious. We also ordered the cheese tray with the candied bacon for an appetizer. It was very good as well. Service usually is as well. Server seemed more concerned with the couple next to us who were ordering wine and desserts. Felt like we were overlooked because we weren’t drinking. We do not drink but we did order two expensive meals and an appetizer. We were too full for the awesome desserts this t
