    Made a reservation on open table, there were tables available outside and inside and it was a little humid so we decided to sit inside and were given a lovely table. Our server was very attentive and our meals were delicious. We enjoyed the escargot and tuna tartare as an appetizer. Best were the cocktails! Naked martini was so refreshing and different! A lovely charming place for a get together with friends!

    Cognac has been one of my favorite restaurants in the city. The service has definitely declined to point of making it not a good experience. Luckily the food is still wonderful.

    We enjoyed dinner al fresco on a lovely evening. Our waiter was attentive, pleasant, and quick to oblige. The filet minion is the best in NYC. The gazpacho was remarkable. The rosé was poured liberally and Francisco, the charming maître d', made sure we were happy. Cognac is a stand-out among NYC restaurants,

    Food is just meh and so is their menu. Since when is a croque-monsieur made with truffles and without ham (which here is extra). I had fried calamari- kinda tasteless (and when I asked for extra tartar sauce the waiter brought it to me and said "this is between you and me but they generally charge extra for more tartar sauce" )!!!!! My friend had the chicken salad which she likes and I have found uninteresting in the past. This place is near my home and sometimes when I have a meal with older friends we go there because its close but I wouldn't make an effort to get there.

    We went there for a lovely lunch and sat outside. It felt like we were sitting in Paris. Beautiful red roses decorated much of the area. The server was friendly and helpful. We had the escargot appetizer and it was delicious. I had the scallops, and I loved them too. My daughter had the soft shell crab special and enjoyed it. We sat under large umbrellas on a warm sunny day, and were quite comfortable. Definitely recommend this restaurant.

    We had lunch outside so noise and ambience were fine but it should be noted we were not inside. The food was really delicious - everything we had was wonderful (the gougeres are excellent, the salade nicoise was delicious as were the profiteroles). We will definitely be back!

    Too expensive for brunch and food much worse than my previous visits. I even sent back basic French fries which were totally overcooked. Should be a non-brainer.

    Meeting a friend for a light dinner and drinks was perfect at Cognac Brasserie! It’s a favorite “go to “ for us and there’s such a lovely wine list of choices…(my favorite place for Sancerre !) We always start with a basket of gougeres and shared mussels, tuna tartare and cheese soufflé! It’s a must !!

    The meal was excellent. I guess they are understaffed, It took a long time to get seated, to get the waiter to place the order, get the check, get the change, etc. They were, however, very friendly. I would go back there.

    The appetizers we ordered for a party of four did not come together but 45 minutes apart. No explanation was given on why there was such a long wait for simple dishes nor why the kitchen or waiter would not ensure that everybody get their food. I ordered the rotisserie chicken, which was dry. Several dishes were served on a ridiculously large bed of dark salad. Nothing was especially tasty. Considering the prices this was a poor experience.
