DISCLAIMER: IF YOU SUFFER FROM SENSITIVITY DUE TO PICTURES OF WINE, IMMEDIATELY EXIT OUT OF THIS POST.
When I met C.G in an Uber last year, he told me this restaurant was a must. Almost one year later, I finally made it to my destination.
Cooper’s Hawk – here’s your tape.
PRICING: 8/10 – I understand this is completely subjective. Plates here range anywhere from $20-$30 per person.
So the rumors were right – it is kind of pricey.
But I’m going to be honest – the food was worth it. My tastebuds immediately understood what “upscale casual” meant when the night was over.
Jumbalaya (shrimp, sausage, chicken, and rice)
Steak and salmon
FAMILY FRIENDLY: 5/10 Do you know how awkward it would be if my 6-month old nephew threw a hunger-tantrum at this restaurant? I’d never talk to him again.
But because of the wine tasting room (21+) – I would not consider this exactly a family friendly restaurant – especially for those who are pretty conservative.
ATMOSPHERE: 9/10. You know how everyone’s always happy at Disney? Yea-well here too.
The waiting staff went above and beyond to make sure our first experience was our best experience.
And maybe it was just me, but everyone else seemed to be in a good mood too.
WOULD I GO BACK? 10/10 Absolutely. Date night, girl’s night, or Friday night – you have to try Cooper’s Hawk at least once in your lifetime.
Here’s a visual of how the night went. Special birthday wishes to you, Rhiannon Jomei. I’m honored to call you a friend.
