Absolutely love everything about this place
My Favorite Neighbor hood Spot. Great Martinis and the Food is good too .
Warm greeting- heaters at table, sparklers in dessert for a birthday- such a great brunch!
Amazing food and place! Highly recommend.
Perfect meal. Easy. Great gimlet!
Neighborhood gem absolutely delightful… always
Lunch outside was delicious & overhead heaters worked well!
We had a very nice restaurant week special, which was delicious. The dining room was not particularly crowded on a Tuesday night, and it was a very enjoyable experience overall.
A lovely dining spot on a cold and dreary January day. Never disappoints.
I love Brasserie Cognac East. The food and the service are always exceptional!
Great ambience, service and food
I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The cheese fondue was quite filling and warm on a cold day.
A reliably good neighborhood restaurant, with truly outdoor seating. Thank you - will return soon!
Another great meal, great staff, a wonderful way to spend a lazy afternoon lunch.
We are outside for safety reasons and the electric heaters were perfect. The salmon burger and bronzino were excellent and the wait staff personable and efficient.
I ❤️ this restaurant! Found it 6 years ago and it is as enjoyable a spot as ever! Food is delicious and staff is friendly and attentive. Location is perfect.
I do love it there.
This was the first meal I have eaten here that I wanted to send back. Chicken was dry and presentation was weak.
Wilson was a gracious host and the wait staff were terrific
The service was nice and the food very tasty and nicely presented
We had lunch here and it was excellent. We had the escargot, onion soup, and eggs Benedict. Everything was delicious and the service was helpful and attentive.
Wonderful place for special occasions whether for personal or business. Great food, service and ambiance.
A nabe fave--and candlelit last night.
Lovely and tasty, too. Best profiteroles i town.
I had the Branzino which was delicious. Started with the cheese puffs and finished with the Noel de Bouche.
Great food and service - we dined outside
Overall a good place for brasserie food. The only food disappointment was the french fries. Everything else, including service was terrific.
We’ve been coming here for years but not the same the last two visits. Menu much smaller, food sub par…
Always excellent - one of the nicer outdoor spaces.
Mediocre food, restaurant was freezing . Had to search for someone to pay our check . No ambience
I always enjoy eating here. It’s a nice place to meet a friend for lunch. It can get noisy, especially at dinner. The food is consistently good, and I never feel like the waitstaff is rushing me out the door. friend
Always a good neighborhood experience. But getting a little pricey
Cognac is a first rate restaurant that is more than a neighborhood gem..its worth traveling for.
The restaurant is full of old world charm. On two levels, the main ding rooms are a few steps below street level and are full of bubbly conversation (and a bit loud). The upper level is a quiet haven with sweet views and an enormous room-doubling mirror.
The food is even better than the ambience. I can never decide what to eat and the daily specials add variety from visit to visit. The accompaniments with each dish are beautiful and complete the course nicely. If you like real chocolate soufflé, it's worth the trip.
Finally, the friendly and happily attentive service. The waiters are well versed and good humored, and the other dining room staff make sure you're not missing a fork or running out of water.
Cognac is a gem on all levels!
Lovely little unpretentious and welcoming bistro. Nice ambience and friendly staff with good food.
Perfect outdoor dining. Salmon and halibut very good. Service is also very good.
Felt very comfortable eating outside in the 'shed' on a warm night. Listened to what we ordered and all enjoyed their dinner.
Ordered the chicken salad. Hard to find the chicken pieces amidst the slaw. Disappointing at $25
We ordered a drink and dinner. The food came before the drink. My salmon was dry and tasteless. I will not go back.
Salmon Burger not great. Cappuccinos cold at $6 each.
Service broke down .
Outdoor dining is very well done with good heating for cool days and decent spacing between tables.
