    I couldn't relax and enjoy eating food at Brasserie Cognac East yesterday because there were so many big flies swarming over my plate trying to land on food. My friend and I spoke to the waiter about the flies and he said the fly traps didn't work... I wonder if the kitchen is safe from the flies and what is the source of all the flies, and if the management can do something to solve this flies problem.

    Steak was a little tough ( unusual for them) But they graciously gave us a discount and did not charge for our dessert. Would definitely go back, favorite neighborhood bistro.

    It is a bit disconcerting to order the Salad Nicoise that is described in the menu as "Italian tuna" and then to be told that if you want fresh tuna rather than canned, it will be an $8 upcharge - think that's cheeky! The rest of the food was very average. Sort of disappointing, but it's not a terribly high end restaurant, so probably to be expected.

    always nice to come and sit outside and enjoy food and ambience always hard to choose which of my usual favorites to have salad is between the avocado and the signature although the nicoise is very good too soups are great: if hot the French onion is a winner and whatever cold soup they have in the summer is really nice--usually gazpacho but my friend had the cucumber and really liked it so many other entrees are good: last night crab cake, beef bourginogne and the halibut----salmon and risotto are always really good desserts; floating islands, profiteroles and others can't miss

    I used to go to Cognac on Broadway and 55th st frequently and was sorry that it closed. I finally got to this one on the East side which is completely out of the way for me but wasn't sorry I ventured out of my comfort zone. Everything including the drinks were great.

    The outdoor seating was quite pleasant, and the food was fine. Unfortunately, two of the non-meat items I had planned to order were unavailable. In addition, the daily quiche had meat. This significantly limited the choices for non-meat-eaters.

    We always search out good restaurants for our birthday dinners, and were very happy with our choice of Brasserie Cognac. From the appetizers to the entrees to dessert, everything was exactly as it should be for a quality restaurant. The wines were a bit more expensive than we usually buy, but were so good that they still represented very good value. Our only quibble was the bread, which should have been better.

    Had the delicious chicken salad which sits on some type of crispy cracker/wafer. Perfect combo on a warm day. My only issue is that no one ever offered to refresh my iced tea which is the norm for this type of restaurant.

    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!
