Earlier this week, David and I were invited to dine at Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurant. The new 28th Street location is the 37th Cooper’s Hawk location – but it was our first time dining! Today, I am sharing 3 reasons you need to visit Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurant!
Ok, let’s start with the first of my reasons you need to visit Cooper’s Hawk – which might be an obvious one, but GUYS. Dave and I had the hardest time narrowing down our menu choices. The appetizers all sounded amazing, and we ended up settling on the calamari and the sweet & chrunchy shrimp! I highly recommend both. The calamari was HUGE!
For dinner, I opted for the ahi tuna, while David went with the fillet. Both were amazing and the portion sizes were great. The menu had bin numbers next to each food item, the bin number correlated to a wine that would pair best with that particular option. I thought that was a very unique offering!
The dessert menu looked phenomenal, too, but we filled up on the amazing food and didn’t leave room — next time 😉
I know, I know, another obvious one! Cooper’s Hawk has “winery” in the name, and they did not disappoint! When you walk in, there’s a massive tasting room, with wine for sale by the bottle.
For dinner, I opted for their Sparkling Raspberry. It was SO good, we ended up taking a bottle home!
We stayed around after dinner for a wine tasting. We did The Master Flight, and got to sample 4 great wines – 2 white and 2 red. This was so fun, and we got to learn a lot about their wine-making process! My favorite was the Chardonnay – it was so buttery and smooth.
Cooper’s Hawk does offer a Wine Club with discounts, access to special events, and – obviously – wine! You can check the Wine Club out here!
You can read all about their winery here.
And now, to round off my reasons you need to visit Cooper’s Hawk would be the atmosphere. The space itself was really cool. It was HUGE, and divided up very well, from the tasting room, to a dining room, to a patio space, and to the bar area (where Dave and I sat). It was modern, and not super noisy. The restaurant was busy, but it didn’t seem crowded, and we didn’t wait long at all for our food after ordering!
Our server was attentive, knowledgeable about the menu, and friendly. Typically, brand new restaurants have a few kinks to work out, but I am happy to report we experienced nothing but A+ service and a friendly staff!
It was the perfect spot for a date night, but would also be a blast for a bigger group, and even the kids!
