Nice BrunchEnjoyed the crab meat and avocado appetizer at brunch. The chicken terrine appetizer was less successful. Followed with a hamburger that was very good though cooked more toward medium than the medium rare I ordered. The lemon ricotta pancakes got strong reviews. Very good service. Nice cozy French brasserie atmosphere. Seemed good for pre-theater too.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMVERY GOOD RESTAURANT. HAVEVERY GOOD RESTAURANT.

CrispyExcellent charcuterie. Crispy calamari. Very good frites. Pot-au-feu very good, fork tender, just big enough a portion. Pousse-cafe dessert option just right -- small glass of cognac, two tasty cookies, and a cup of coffee.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMTrue french restaurantAmazing. And I'm picky.
Took my French wife and mother-in-law here and they couldn't believe how authentic it was. "It tastes like food back home" they said.
They didn't have the wine we wanted so they upgraded us to a better bottle at no additional charge.
Only complaint is that it took awhile for the bill...though I suppose that is authentically French too.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat relaxed brunch withGreat relaxed brunch with family and friends. Goujers are amazing!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my first time atThis was my first time at Cognac and I was very pleased. Food was excellent and prepared just the way I requested. Service was

I will definitely return and recommend Cognac to friends.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWarm welcome and service.Warm welcome and service. Food traditional Brasserie and delicious. Lovely ambiance.2/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service is four stars,The service is four stars, except when you have Anthony (the one with glasses), his attitude deserved less the one. Food is very good, halibut must try. Always cooked perfect, and this is fish that can be easy overcooked and dry (what a lot of restaurant do to halibut). Brasserie Cognac has one of the best halibut in town, and I compare it to top four star restaurants.2/2/2013 12:00:00 AMA touch of Paris, yet welcomesA touch of Paris, yet welcomes kiddies. Good solid French fare in an informal, welcoming setting. The gougeres, souffles and service are exceptional.
