    When in Dayton, we always try to fit in a dinner at Coco's Bistro. We've been there three times now, and each has been a great experience. The menu is creative, and the food is always delicious. At this week's visit, our group had entrees of shrimp ravioli, trout and filet mignon. No appetizers this time, but we did enjoy dessert of creme brûlée and cheesecake. Service is always professional and attentive. Kudos to Coco's Bistro for delivering a consistently enjoyable experience.

    Never having been to Coco's before, I wasn't sure what to expect. I was extremely pleased with the quality of service and the quality of food. Our waitress was prompt, pleasant, and always had a smile on her face. The food was beautifully presented, and delicious as well. Even though it seemed to be a busy evening for Coco's the noise was not distracting, nor was it difficult to hear the other people at our table. As for the little details, my daughter and I were splitting an entree, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that Coco's divided the entree for us, presenting it on two separate plates. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience!

    I would consider myself a regular at Coco's. This visit I was having dinner with a long-time girlfriend visiting from out of town. The server was very good about letting us know there was a large party that was holding up the kitchen. She also let us linger after dinner without interruption. It was a very nice evening.

    Last year we had a wonderful experience here for our anniversary. I'm not sure if it was the caliber of the staff has changed but the food was not anything special although the menu gets you excited for an exceptional meal. Our service was extremely poor. We received our appetizer and salads quickly but then waited almost 45 minutes for our main meals which were not even hot. We were offered complimentary dessert for our long wait (last year we received this as a celebration of our anniversary). We waited an additional 20 minutes only to receive 1 dessert. We took it to go. Our check came quickly though.

    I was very excited to eat at Coco's Bistro-the menu read amazingly. I enjoyed the atmosphere; dark, multi-room, multi-level and fun cheetah carpet. Service was good. Our waitress was attentive and we never had to ask for anything, but the visit itself was LONG-almost 2.5 hours-and not because we took our time. We went during restaurant week, so it was a limited menu- selections happened quickly. I ordered the filet, which is what I would've ordered without a limited menu. We also ordered an additional appetizer and different dessert for an up-charge. The fried brie was delicious, but I wish there would've been more than bread as a side; apples, pears, nuts, etc. Filet was just okay. I asked for medium and it was definitely rare. And tough.

    I always feel like I'm in another city when we eat here. Probably the closest thing to the "NY city restaurant" scene we have here in the Dayton area, with a lot friendlier service. A little pricey, but not overly so for the quality, and worth every penny, especially for special occasions. Went here for an anniversary dinner, and couldn't have been better! A+++

    First time at Coco's. The service was horrible. After being seated, it took a good 10 minutes to have anyone come to our table with water. When the waiter did return, he would spend seconds before speeding off to another table. We made the mistake of ordering the overpriced scallops as an appetizer (3 items/ 16 !) , had various beef and seafood entrees, all on the dry side. The side of cheddar mashed potatoes had large chunks of onions that added no taste but did add textural weirdness. The honey balsamic dressing must have missed the balsamic part of the recipe-pure honey. Salad dressed with honey - yuch. There are several other choices in a 10 mile radius that offer fresh food creatively at reasonable prices. That's where I'll be.

    Our first visit to the "new" - and larger - Coco's Bistro. Well received by the friendly hostess and introduced to the menu and wine list by a knowledgeable and competent waiter. An adequate and reasonably priced wine list with a good variety of menu offerings. Our two meals ( featuring chicken and duck) were well accompanied by a Bordeaux wine. Good, attentive service made for a pleasant first visit.

    We had what appeared to be an inexperienced waiter. There was a significant delay in every aspect of the process. In an effort to expedite the process at the end, I gave the waiter my credit card before receiving the bill. He didn't place it in the black bill container. He carried it on top of the container, then laid it down on a ledge (my credit card laying on top) to come back and clear our table. Thus leaving my credit card available for any passer by to pick up and take away.

    I treated my out of town guests to dinner at Coco's. We were promptly seated. My only issue was that the host, blithely threw our menus on the table and walked away with Have a seat. I was pretty offended because it was so rude. Then I noticed he did it with everyone. Very bad form in my opinion if the guy you have at the front of the house is rude. Service was slow. Our waitress was ok, but she would leave for long periods of time, never inquired as to how we were doing or if we needed anything. I am all for letting people have a pleasant experience but there is a fine line between smothering and ignoring guests that I think they have to find at Coco's. Thankfully when the food arrived it was nice and hot, tasted wonderful. Overall so so

    I had been here with friends and decided this would be a nice place for my husband and I to celebrate our 25th Anniversary. I made a note on Open Table and didn't really think anything about it. When it came time for the check, our server said the dessert had been taken care of. As we left, the hostess said she hoped we had a wonderful anniversary. Everything about this restaurant was perfect and I don't think it was just because it was our anniversary. I can't wait to go back.

    As a UD alum I've passed by Coco's numerous times heading back to the interstate and always wanted to check it out. We had tickets to a show at the Schuster and decided it was a good excuse to finally check it out. My husband had the duck and I ordered the special, filet kabobs. Portions were good but not too large and well seasoned. We ordered the scallops for an appetizer and were honestly the best scallops I've ever eaten. I will definitely recommend this to my friends and hope to visit again soon.

    My wife and I first checked out Coco's the day I finished my last class at Wright State for my bachelor degree (mid-life career-changer). Coco's was recommended highly by my professor, classmate, and our group project facilitator. We just went there again with friends and my wife said that it is her favorite overall restaurant. The food, the atmosphere, the staff - all are incredible. We spent 2 1/2 hours there and enjoyed every minute. The ribeye dinner was one of the best steaks I've ever had and the grill-cheese bites with tomato bisque are to die for. We're sure you will enjoy this local gem.
