Summary New restaurant with a huge gluten free menu in Reston, VA (and 32 other locations)

We have been to the Cooper's Hawk restaurant in Ashburn on several occasions, but this was the first time trying their new location in Reston. (They also have locations in 8 other states. See their website linked above.) While I liked the ambiance of the dining room a little more in Ashburn, the Reston restaurant is very nice -- and it has a very cool bar area, too. Cooper's Hawk offers many of their own wines, as well as other winemaker's blends. (They also have a wine club you can join.) The food here is amazing, and they have one of the best Gluten Free Menus around. It's probably best for me to just give you this link to the Gluten Free Menu so you can see all the options for yourself.


Wow! Everything is so good! I loved the Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad (shown here), and my husband really likes their Caesar Salad, which is unique in that they use a Caesar dressing with a bit of die for! Our favorite entrees include the Grilled Tenderloin Medallions, Short Rib Risotto, and Dana's Parmesan Crusted Chicken. They even offer gluten free pastas and burgers and sandwiches on wonderful (homemade, I think) gluten free buns. (They bring this same bread/bun out with the bread at the beginning of the meal if you want it.) Our son had a full piece of the bread and then another served with his burger! Cooper's Hawk even had gluten free desserts! A S'more Budino, Lemon Ice Wine Cheesecake, Flourless Chocolate Torte, and Salted Caramel Creme Brulee always call my name, but we never have room at the end of such a spectacular meal. But one of these days we will try some of these! They also offer lunch sized options on the GF Menu. I HIGHLY recommend this restaurant for anyone, especially gluten free folks looking for a really nice meal with a great range of gluten free choices.
