Diner Reviews
  • "Wonderful! This brunch was delicious with a variety of sweet treats and hearty entrees to choose from. I've been here for dinner and cocktails and have always loved the food. I wasn't sure what to expect for the brunch but it was very delightful and the service was great!"

  • "This is the second time I have gone to Co Co Sala. The first time I happened to find it while looking for a dining experience near Ford's Theater. Both times the meals were excellent. There always seems to be a nice twist to the menu items making the selection difficult because I always want to try more than one item. The wait staff brought us some small plates to be used for sharing in case that is something you would like to do. The portions are not big, which was fine for our table because we all left quite satisfied and it gives you the opportunity to add a tasty appetizer and/or dessert to the meal. I definitely recommend this restaurant. The food is tasty and somewhat unique recipes and the wait staff is excellent."

  • "We had reservations, and were seated at a tiny table in the bar; would have preferred back in the actual restaurant, especially as we weren't just drop-ins, but actually had an occasion to celebrate and a reservation. The server kept removing our empty drink glasses and leaving without asking if we'd like anything else. Our entree plates came out before our salads. We would have liked to stay longer, but as we couldn't get our food or drinks properly, left rather quickly. I've been to Co Co Sala before; it is usually much better. Not a great introduction for my friend who had never been there. "

  • "My favorite DC brunch place. Soup with fried brioche was perfect starter followed by lemon butter cottage cheese pancakes that I must have every time. Loved the martini with black pepper ginger syrup. "

  • "We went here as our "formal" dinner selection for our trip to dc. And was pleasantly suprised on everything..from the amazing drink selection and heavenly drink creations..tht will push ur tastebuds into over load. The desert combo I highly recommend as choice."

  • "We wound up getting there an hour after our reservation time because of a ridiculous amount of traffic and I was so upset that we weren't going to be able to eat at the restaurant I had been looking forward to for months. However, the staff was completely understanding and were able to sit us less than 5 minutes after we walked in. We had the 5-course chocolate meal, which was delectable and after seeing the savory food, I only wish I lived closer so I could go back again. The drinks were creative and delicious and the wine menu was entirely inclusive as well. Then, when the check came, I was surprised at how inexpensive the night turned out to be. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone planning on visiting the area."

  • "The food was adequate - overpriced for such small dishes. The seating was very uncomfortable - hard-backed benches or stools with no back at all. The service was incompetent. It took 20 minutes to get our food, and we were served the wrong dishes."

  • "My friend and I had brunch at CoCo Sala and we truly enjoyed it! We each had the pre fixe brunch, and were able to choose various items that we then shared (of course). We opted for coffee and a white hot chocolate to drink (the homemade marshmallow was awesome!). We would definitely like return for dessert and some prosecco sometime. The only downside was that the tables were small and relatively close together, so intimate dining is shared with other guests (like most restaurants in the area). Overall, fabulous!"

  • "The food is terrific! But I was not prepared for the dark interiors. It was a bit too dark for my taste. But overall Thumbs-up!"

  • "We just came in for dessert with some friends to celebrate our anniversary. We just ordered dessert and some cocktails. Everything was pretty expensive for the portion, even the drinks were small. But everything was delicious, and the server took great care of us. I'd like to go back and check out what they have on the menu for dinner."

  • "My boyfriend and I had brunch at Co Co Sala on Sunday. The food was top notch. The staff (hostess and servers) were friendly and attentive to our needs. Our food came shortly after we ordered. My boyfriend ordered the breakfast flatbread (which came with an arugula salad) and chocolate covered bacon. He said they were both quite delicious. I ordered the artichoke tart (which came with gazpacho soup). The tart was warm, butter, and crispy goodness. The creamy artichoke filling was quite savory. Co Co Sala is a great place for foodies, a girls night out, a romantic date, a corporate happy hour, and other private event."

  • "Best about Co Co Sala was the service--our waitress was helpful, attentive, and friendly. Likewise, so were all the other restaurant staff. The food was good. And kitchen prepared attractive presentations but most servings were small given the prices. The Arugula salad was imaginative and delicious; but the beet salad was inadequate--ridiculously sparse--at least some greens could have been added. Worst about Co Co Sala--the unisex tiny bathroom. I found it confusing. A woman who visited the bathroom didn't seem to like the experience either. My advice: segregate the bathrooms."

  • "Wonderful flavors. Small plates are bigger than the usual so we didn't need to order as many. Pork belly on bun is a standout."

  • "Their food and desserts are amazing. But it's pretty noisy"
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "We were there very early and the place was mostly empty but we were still seated close to very loud patrons at the bar. We just were not in the mood for that, and asked to be moved. Our new spot was much better and we were able to enjoy the wonderful food - recommend the strawberry flatbread, scallops, artichoke tart. Also, it's a treat to be able to watch the desserts being prepared."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "I was honestly surprised how good the food was here. I knew the desserts would be exceptional, but I didn't know the food would would be so delicious too. And it was. While the menu is small and as a vegetarian there wasn't a large plate option, the small bites and salad was perfect. The fries are delicious as was the mushroom risotto. Of course the chocolate based desserts were scrumptious. I have heard that it can get pretty loud on weekends, but we went during the week and it was nice."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "Definitely recommend getting there in time to grab a drink for happy hour then taking a seat in the dining area because the cocktails are really good. Food is like tapas and everything is amazing. Crab cakes are my favorite."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "Just get the multi-course dessert and you will be hooked! Great place/price. Our favorite place to go and it's only a 2 minute walk from the Metro!"

  • "Went just for dessert around 7pm. The bar was packed and though on the other side of a wall it made it really noisy in the dining area. There was only one waiter and he was running around so it took awhile to order but the dessert came out quickly. We had the Chocolate Onyx and it was awesome. Very decadent and glad we split it between two because it was so rich I don't know if I could have eaten it all. Would go back again for dessert but need a reservation to be safe,"

  • "We went for brunch. The restaurant was close to empty, yet for some reason the service by our waitress was very slow. We had to ask the busser twice to find our waitress for us to order and/or get service. It seemed as if the minute she realized we were not ordering the prix fixe menu, we weren't worth her time. As usual, the food, however, was fantastic."

  • "Although the desserts are really the star, the rest of the menu is also very much worth a visit."

    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Overall, this restaurant was very good - the buffalo sliders were scrumptious (although the crabcakes might have been even more delicious), great helpful service, and the ambiance is very chic. The deserts were out of this world and the Fetish cocktail was fabulous!!! The bacon mac-n-cheese was maybe overly bacon but the chococlate covered bacon piece on top was a nice touch. Will definitely return here!"

  • "We are typically very laid back and enjoy quiet meals where we can talk and be heard without having to raise voices above normal speaking level. That isn't possible at Co Co Sala! It is a fairly energetic place. The décor is very trendy, as are the restrooms. The food was tasty, but the portions were quite small. But, if you order dessert, you'll be full by the end of the meal. The desserts are pretty good, but not worth the price you're expected to pay. The service was excellent - our waitress kept our water glasses full and checked on us regularly, answering any questions we had with ease. Not somewhere that we will return, but it was a fun experience."

  • "We were running late to the restaurant. Called the restaurant to inform them we would need to modify the reservation to 2:00 pm. The hostess informed us they would be closing the kitchen about 2:15 pm. At 2:25 pm, the hostess called to inquire if we would still make it to the restaurant, we did. Our server was delightful and offered amazing service. She tended to us frequently. Overall, great brunch experience. Will definitely be going there again!!!!"

  • "The food was great; the room was cold; the server didn't care; he brought the check without asking; we still wanted dessert; he brought all food out at once; we ordered an appetizer and three bites; he should have staged it"

  • "My boyfriend's sister introduced us to Coco Sala a few years back and we have not stopped coming back, the Cocojito is the best drink in Washington, DC hands down!! We've tried everything on the menu at this point, our faves are the bacon mac-n-chees, and the swordfish sliders (these are seasonal)... Coco is fun and lively the the prices are reasonable the service is always above and beyond and the food is undeniably great, the best part is that everything has a little bit of chocolate in it! Go to Coco Sala you will not be disappointed!"

  • "Visiting downtown DC on last day of trip, we went to Co Co. Sala for a late lunch. The food was very good. I had grown up grilled cheese and my wife the cheese souffle. My sandwich came with tomato soup that was good with a bit of a kick of heat to it. The sandwich good as it was could have used a little more cheese to match the very thick bread. My wife's souffle was outstanding. We of course had to have dessert. I had the Onyx. It was gorgeous, rich but amazingly light. Fantastic. My wife had Latin Love, which was also very good, but it was no Onyx. The only complaint was the terribly uncomfortable benches and tables that kept you in an bad seating position with no place to put your legs. Tries to look chic but very uncomfortable."
