  • "We travelled to Friday Harbor for just one night for a family matter and were looking for a nice place for dinner. Based on the reviews we booked dinner at Coho's for 8pm. When we arrived early our table was already ready and our waiter Dave welcomed us immediately. Dinner was great we had the Halibut special which was cooked perfectly and the best Seafood salad any one at the table has had before. Wine list was extensive with a heavy listing of Washington wines. We tend to like the bolder California Cabs but Dave helped us pick an exceptional Washington Meritage that went well with dinner. Highly recommend."

  • "We had a very nice experience, a very interesting menu, however some of the items were not on hand the night we were there. We absolutely LOVED the bread the chef makes in house, it is WORLD CLASS QUALITY ! Small very eclectic menu with very uncomfortable chairs. We left sooner than we would have if it had been more comfortable. Otherwise the staff and food were outstanding."

  • "Small yet comfortable venue provided for a great anniversary dinner with my wife. The wait staff is exceptionally friendly and certainly offered some local input as to places to spend some time. The food was outstanding, until you look at the price. The price being a bit excessive for the quality of the food, however considering the location and the intimate setting it evens out. I personally recommend going in for dinner between 5:00 and 5:45 for the Chef's Tasting which runs $70 for whatever the special of the dayis. It get's you dinner for 2, a bottle of wine, and a dessert. Well worth the expense."

  • "We had a wonderful dining experience at Coho and only had to wait 5 minutes for our reserved table (we were early!) and from then on, felt like we really mattered - the service, the recommendations of which dinner choices fit my likes better, the pace of the dinner was quite pleasant - overall a wonderful experience!"

  • "Went there for my partner's Birthday celebration, which was noted on the reservation. No mention of the event celebration by any of the staff. Overall would describe the service as indifferent. Kitchen seemed backed up. The food concepts were good but not everything was executed well. Quinoa cake was oily and slightly burned. Fish was overcooked, and had too much lemon juice. A female servers assistant was extremely cheerful and pleasant."

  • "Now that they have started taking reservations, I like it a lot more. It used to be that you had to stand in a very drafty entryway to wait. We've taken grandkids there manytimes and they can always find something they like"

  • "My husband and I went to Coho for our 10-year wedding anniversary. The food and the service was exceptional. Best caprese salad I've ever had in my life. Everything we ate was amazing. It was the perfect spot for our occasion."

  • "In an area I consider to be quite "out-of-the-way" this restaurant simply astounds me...the food is so good. We have dined at COHO twice. The first time, we were very surprised how good it was. The second time, we were thrilled it was as good, perhaps even better, than the first time. I enjoyed the most delicious tomato/mozzarella salad I've ever had at COHO. We highly recommend it to anyone visiting San Juan Island. Don't even bother eating anywhere else."

  • "The food was delicious, and the service really was outstanding. We were happy to take advantage of their prix fixe menu—both of us ate three courses with wine—for $70. I'd certainly recommend Coho to friends!"

  • "A very warm and charming place presumably run by husband and wife. This cute cottage style restaurant is a converted house so the charm is definitely there. The food came in succession and was nice and hot. We decided to dress up a bit but a nice collard shirt with jeans would be fine. Super cute and inviting...would definitely go back the next time I'm in town."

  • "We were very surprised...I don't think San Juan Island is know for it's great food, but our meals were both memorably good. We would definetly go back here. Everything we tried was really good. It's a small place, but nicely appointed...very nice dining experience."
