Our first visit but definitely not our last. Enjoyed a pleasant meal before a show. We shared the cheese gougeres to start and then enjoyed the scallops and halibut. Both were perfectly prepared.
Went with my brother and husband for a pre theater meal and we were happy with the service, ambience and quality of the food and alcohol served. Will definitely return when dining in town again.
Consistently good food and attentive service. Love the basics they offer such as onion soup and steak frites. You can't go wrong here and it's reminiscent of a local brasserie in France.
Lovely experience, relaxed window table, easy service and good food. Your gourgeres are addictive. Returned for breakfast and you did not disappoint. A reliable favorite.
What a delightful discovery! I dined alone on a business trip and relaxed over great wine, a lovely bisque and perfectly executed canard. The service was professional and accommodating, the meal prepared perfectly, and the wine selection was truly delicious. I will be back!
I was very disappointed with our meal. It was very expensive for the poor quality.
Nice restaurant. Food was delicious and the Tuna tart is really amazing.
We sat half in/half out of the restaurant up front. It was very private and we were able to watch people walk by on the street. Food was awesome, wine was wonderful, and the service was great! Would go back again!
Good food for breakfast , lunch or dinner.
Love the avocado toast. A reliable go to.
Is consistently reliable, comfortable, relaxing with excellent service and predictably good food....
We make a reservation for breakfast at 11:30 and when we arrived, told us that the kitchen is closed... We left.
Had cucumber soup and at the recemendation of my waitress had red snapper with delicious vegetables. Will be back.
The restaurant was quite empty and they sat using next to a shattered full length glass window and next to the door to their bakery. Just not the romantic mood we were looking for to celebrate our 36th anniversary.
We had scallops, gold and red beet salad and chocolate souffle. My companion rated the souffle the highlight of his trip.
Cognac is one of my favorite neighborhood places - tasty food and selections. Great place for get togethers. Service is good, very friendly. Always has been a good choice for last minute dinner plans, easy to get a table. I always get the halibut served on a pilaf of risotto, although the only criticism is that consistency varies from very delicious to sublime. But regardless, the plate always goes back to the kitchen clean and empty after I clean it out.
My wife enjoyed the cappuccino creme brulee, but rated her cheese souffle as rather bland (not enough cheese).
My lobster bisque and beef bourguignon were excellent, and our wine pairings worked well.
However, we dined in solitary splendor in the main dining room between 5:30 and 6:45 pm on a Thursday evening. Consequently, there was no ambience.
Also, the service was unnecessarily aggressive considering we were the only diners.
Where was everybody? Possibly put off by the upscale pricing.
Excellent food, had filet mignon burger, wife had beef bourginion both very tasty.
Really enjoyed our meal, it was a restaurant week special, I’d return to try the regular menu
Amazing food and great service. Really enjoyed it 😄
The food was excellent. I've eaten at Brasserie Cognac many times. My problem, this time, was with our server. I think he was very new or in the process of being trained (and needed way more training). He was a very pleasant fellow; eager to please. When our escargot arrived, he forgot the small seafood forks. When I told him, he brought me a fork, but not my friend. So he had to go and get another fork. But the worst was when my cappuccino arrived, the small demitasse spoon was FILTHY...with jelly or jam on it. I asked for a replacement spoon, which I promptly received. Our server needs to be trained to spot dirty serving items (flatware, plates, glasses, cups, etc.). It's his responsibility. However, this will not turn me off to dining at Brasserie Cognac. I sure hope they vigorously train ALL their servers about inspecting all items presented to patrons. (Yes, I used to be a server -- in the last century -- and I was taught to inspect all items before handing them over to my customers.)
Excellent experience with amazing restaurant week menu and wonderful service. Would definitely come back!
For value and quality, this was the best restaurant week lunch that we have had.
Great ambiance, delightful personnel. Your minimum character requirement is not helpful. More is not always better
This is a great restaurant. The food is reasonable priced and it is very delicious, especially the Tuna Tart. It’s an appetizer but it’s perfect for a lunch entrée. It’s a corner location so it’s a fun people watching spot as well.
Enjoyed a delicious lunch during NYC Restaurant week!
Lobster bisque and snails both excellent, as well as the main course of sea bass with side vegetable. Nice ambiance though a bit noisy as all restaurants seem to be these days.
A really authentic French restaurant. Great foie gras tourchon, wonderful steak tartare and very good cheese soufflé.
The food quality was overall good. Enjoyable and great ambiance.
Brasserie Cognac is a casual and dependable restaurant in mid-town, with good food and service for a quality meal that will not break the bank.
Waiters are rude!
The lobster bisque was amazing
What a great find! The food and service were phenomenal! I highly recommend!
We enjoyed an early evening dinner. Our waiter was quite attentive and steered us to the scallops which my friend and I thoroughly enjoyed. Three large tender scallops perfectly prepared were served with cubed sweet potato. Delicious.
We went for restaurant week. A miserable disappointment. Everything was meh. Nothing was horrible but the smoked salmon salad could have come from an over the counter deli. The sea bass was served room temperature. The dessert was inedible. Dismissive service. And we were charged $29 instead of $26 for lunch. I’ll never return.
Brasserie Cognac is my go-to place as it's convenient to my office. Usually the service is very friendly but not this visit. Our waiter began by making a condescending remark when I asked him to recommend a rose and rarely made eye contact. Lastly when I asked him to tell a nearby table to move or turn off the piercing light on their cell that was pointed directly at me, he became indignant and refused my request. Really? He could have at least had the manager do it. Upsetting ending to an otherwise pleasant meal.
Nice simple menu. Well priced. Good service. Everything I’ve tried has been very good.
Love this restaurant, food consistently good. My fave is the halibut.
It was a beautiful night so the doors were all open and we had a great dinner. Warm cheese puffs were light and tasty, truffle Mac and cheese was wonderful without being heavy and the burger was delicious!
Great location. We sat outside on a lovely summer evening. Loved the beet salad and halibut. Overall, wonderful experience.
Restaurant was hot
Waiter made us wait 10 minutes
Fondue was salty
Mussels were not cleaned well
Salad was good
Souffle eggs were runny, very wet
