Fabulous! Great food and service.
Very nice maitre d who remembers little details. Good good. Nice upscale locale place
Really nice outdoor dining in Covid era with plastic separators between tables, warm electric heaters above tables and soft plastic sides. Menu provides something for everyone. And the staff is delightful!
Great food, quick service. Would definitely go here again
It's always a pleasure to go to Cognac (or order for delivery). Excellent food and choices, superb service and wonderful ambience.
Excellent food, excellent service, romantic room with high prices that match the neighborhood real estate.
Like the outdoor table arrangement. Salmon is delicious and those cheese puffs are dreamy. Great for neighborhood dining.
I love Cognac! The food is always wonderful and the staff attentive and professional. They do outdoor dining to perfection too. My only complaint is that this restaurant seems to expect everyone to always order a full meal. Sometimes, you just want onion soup or the delectable cheese puffs...
Amazing food and stellar service
Very professional friendly service, good food, leisurely fun lunch topped by delicious profiteroles dessert 👌
My "go to" place when in NY! Brasserie Cognac East has done a great job in making the outside seating pleasant, even in 35 degree temperatures!
Everything was delicious. Set up was great and warm. Would come again.
I love dining at cognac.
The food is very nice, staff are great and even though we are dining outdoors, it is warm and toasty.
One of my favorite locals. Best tuna tartare on Upper East side.
We love the food - the service is great and the people working there are lovely!
Its a pleasure that it is so close to wear we live!
Really love the tuna tartar and the skirt frites. The ambience was good and the service was on point. The staff was very responsive and it was very peaceful at the same time. Will recommend.
It was cold; we asked for a heater repeatedly we never got one
Fabulous service and the best meal!!!!
My favorite outside dining place!!
Love!!! Great food. Wonderful service. Highly recommend.
Lovely setting and excellent service. Salmon was delicious. Liked gesture of hats for celebrating Nrw Years. Only downside was heaters were removed by fire department and feet and hands got cold. Favorite place and will continue to dine there.
excellent food excellent service!!! Very nice experience!!!
Very comfortable place and good is always very good
Last time I was there you were out of Cheese shuffles! AND there was no kerosene for the heaters! NNOOOO! And the gougeres weren't hot and I hardly tasted the cheese!
Seriously, I love the place and have been there countless times recently.
C’était délicieux !
Amazing service and food
We sat outside on a cool Sunday afternoon - the spacing of the tables was fine. The waitstaff seemed very busy and service was spotty. The food was inedible. I had the chicken salad and my friend had Salad Nicoise - they both looked appetizing but had no taste and at $25 a salad, very disappointing. When you pay by credit card, the hand held credit card machine suggests a tip starting at 18% - making it difficult and uncomfortable for you to designate a lower tip.
I have eaten at the restaurant on the west side and had an entirely different experience
I would not return to this place.
Nice outdoor lunch. Nicely prepared.
Great spot. Great food. Great drinks. Lovely service.
Service was exceptional and we had a wonderful time thank you for your hospitality
Outstanding service! We enjoyed our night out very much. Very good food. Great outdoor setup. We went on a cold night and were able to seat outdoors and eat comfortably without our jackets because of their heaters. We’ll definitely come back.
Despite Covid, it is always a pleasure to eat Brasserie Cognac. I never have any complaints and the outdoor dinning is as as good as you will get anywhere in the city. Their French bistro cuisine is surely the best on the Upper East Side.
The menu is of high quality food even during the pandemic Cognac doesn’t sacrifice on quality. It is a gem neighborhood restaurant that makes you feel like you are in Paris. Highly recommended! I went there several times and each time I tried a different dish from the moules marinières to the filet mignon flambé or the sirloin burger, all were delicious and my only dilemma is what I will choose the next time because every dish is exquisite! The deserts are outstanding as well. I recommend the warm apple tarte tatin and the île flottante!
Excellent food and very kind, friendly service.
Great brunch. Outside seating was pleasant and staff was attentive.
Excellent food and service!!! The nicest restaurant staff!!
Great for outdoor dining with lots of heaters. Most outdoor seating on quiet side street
Not a very good lunch. Rushed waiter and curt. Food not exceptional at all. Good bread!
the restaurant has handled the outdoor dining experience very well. it's packed w a line waiting for tables. Very nice people and my avocado toast was lovely. going to be hard to maintain hot food with cold weather but they're doing their very best.
We had a noon reservation and by 1pm, the tables had been doubled to an anxiety producing and inappropriate number. Additionally, a threesome with a large (minimum 50 lb) dog sat at the table next to us UNDER the tent and was walking and bumping into my date. We had our mains wrapped and left. It was also so loud that we couldn’t hear one another. It was awful. My choice of restaurants and I am VERY disappointed in the misjudgment of management in allowing so many diners, so many tables so close together and the dog was just ridiculous. The experience made my decision seem irresponsible and was an awful afternoon.
