We celebrated our wedding anniversary here and the experience was wonderful. The staff was friendly and efficient. The food was wonderful, from the appetizer to the dessert. The place is casual but elegant. Really nice spot for a special night out.

Last night we had to go to Granite Bay to pick our daughter up from a birthday party. My husband & I figured we leave the other kids w/the grandparents & make a date night out of it. We don’t know the area at all so we looked up the top rated restaurants. Hawks looked good so we called and made a reservation. We got there 1/2 early but they were able to seat us. Our server Chris was amazing!! He gave us great advice on what to order food & wine wise. Man he was spot on!! Our salads were amazing & fresh. My husband got a New York & I got the short ribs. Both of us were more then happy. Best meal we have had in years & we love food!! We don’t get to eat out much but when we do we normally choice high end restaurant because we are both excellent cooks. I’m glad we live a hour away because I have a feeling we would spend way to much money eating at Hawks. The meal was expensive but so worth every cent!! Hawks is amazing!! The food, the service was so good!! Thank you Chris for being such a great waiter. We will be back!!

Hawks is located on the right side of Quarry Ponds Center, it's a classy exterior for a strip center and very inviting when you open the door. To your right is the main dining room beyond the reception stand, to your left is a small bar with less than a dozen seats. There's usually a few folks at the bar waiting for their tables to be available. The dining room is circular, some of the outside windows face Quarry Pond. Seating is very comfortable (but avoid the table by the kitchen door), the best seats are along the windows.
Service is attentive from beginning to end, without being overbearing. Orders for drinks are taken and delivered quickly, food orders soon follow. The waiters are all very knowledgeable about anything on the menu. There's also an excellent wine list, with by the glass offerings as well. All of the diners at your table are served with their choices at the same time. The time from ordering to delivery is reasonably prompt.
On this visit we tried the Corn Fritters appetizer ($10), which was excellent. We haven't seen corn fritters on a restaurant menu in over twenty years, so it was great to see it here. We also ordered Hawks Margaritas ($12), a couple of Hawks Burgers ($18) plus one with Bacon (+$3) and a Halibut ($24), all of which were excellent and well worth the prices charged. After a very satisfying meal, we had coffee ($3.50) and were very happy when we left. It's really hard to go wrong at a classy establishment like this, and even though our bill was $124.42 before tip for lunch, we'd have no reservations in returning for another visit to Hawks.

Great special occasion place out in Granite Bay,CA perhaps reminiscent of city eats. Came here for mother's day--filet/lobster tail. Pricey but not outlandish. Service is top notch, food inventive and fresh. Understated elegance. Bread is yummy. Been here a handful of times. Something for everyone from burgers, kids food and business meetings.
