How many times have you heard of restaurants with fabulous reputations and buzz that do not live up to either? Neither is the case at Cochon. From the moment we arrived until we left, greeters and servers were perfectly attentive and hospitality driven. Great suggestions on ordering, perfect timing of the courses and in the end an excellent value. Split the beet salad with my date. Then shared multiple small plates and sides including greens, mac and cheese, pork cheeks, fried alligator and pork ribs. It was a perfect meal.
Great as always
Lotsa pig food, so I guess that is why they call it Cochon and have a giant pig hanging on the wall. Pork cheeks, ribs, and ham were all scrumptious. Alligator tasted like a chicken mcnugget and would not recommend it unless you feel some compulsion to eat alligator!
Been coming to New Orleans regularly for about ten years and this place vaults close to the top of my best restaurant list. Great food, friendly service, great ambiance. Definitely a top pick.
I was told we did not have a reservation because the no longer go thru open table.
I had my reservation thru open table up on my phone. not happy.
Wonderful gumbo; great fish; nicely seasoned foods; exceptional service
Great service! Ryan was so lovely. We had a really wonderful time and will come back again!
The service was amazing. Very accommodating and patient service staff. Food was incredible as always
Great meal, great flavor to the meal and hand crafted drinks! Service was knowledgeable of food and specialty drinks. I'm normally a beer drinker but enjoyed the handcrafted cocktails. Service made suggestions upon request but not pushy and not overbearing. Loved the rabbit and dumplings as well as macaroni cheese casserole and creamy grits. Split the meal between 2 people.
Waiter was a bit odd but food came out quickly and all tasted wonderful!!
Fantastic lunch for husband & I and my parents, after spending hours at WW2 museum a few blocks away. Wood-fire oysters were the highlight. And the rabbit. And pork ribs. And.....
Great experience, food and service consistently good!
I had an excellent meal with friends. Perfect service and every dish was full of flavor! Loved this place!
Split a few dishes but the mac-n-cheese and gumbo were very good.
After visiting Herbsaint we decided to give Cochon a try for dinner - we were not disappointed, in fact I was elated. The food and service were amazing! Great selection of bourbon as well! Worth the drive from Houston!
Second time here after many years and still one of the best places to try and experiment with meats and NOLA food! Great dinner and great experience. Service was amazing too.
We enjoyed the food at Cochon; however the service was rude. We were brought our check twice even though we had a full glass of wine and beer, unfinished dessert, and had been there less than an hour.
The food was just incredible. All of us left saying that we enjoyed every thing about the meal from top to bottom. I can't wait to come back.
Table favorites: ribs, alligator, boudin, gumbo, catfish, aged brisket.
Everything seemed to be spicy. I'm. Not against that but
Wish they had a few healthier choices most items are fried our high caloric. Cool ambience and drinks.
Great experience overall. There was some problem with the server (who was probably new) and the management stepped in and provided a couple of sides on the house and picked up the tab for our cocktails. Food was as good as we expected from the reviews - especially loved the chanterelle mushroom toasts. A little noisy - not the place for an intimate dinner - but we had a great dinner there.
What can I say about Cochon!!
The food was out of this world and the staff was knowledgeable and pleasurable. I can't wait to return.
Excellent food and services. The food very delicious.
Everything was okay noting outstanding. Many other restaurants you can go to for this price range that are much better
The menu is very different but the food is spectacular! Don't worry about the menu just order something and enjoy!
I love Cochon. This was a must for us in New Orleans and the only reservation we made for our stay. The team at Cochon has created a menu of dishes that use smoke as an ingredient in the same way they use salt. It's a deft hand that lets you know the food has been cooked over wood but nowhere near some places where it feels like the food was rested in an ashtray. The smoke isn't even the most demonstrative element of the teams skill. The absolute perfect levels of heat in the dishes hitting the note where you crave more because it's the perfect marriage of pleasure and pain. The wait staff were terrific, and put up with two novice diners. The boudin will be the best bite of food I have this year, and the chow chow inspired me to create some at home. Simply thanks.
Service was great. Our waiters were very friendly and the food was delicious.
This is one of the more innovative and fun restaurants I have had the pleasure of eating at in a while.
I would not recommend this restaurant. The food was overly spicy. The service was a disaster! Our bread arrived before the dessert after we had finished our entre. The waitress was very rude. We waited 15 for a refill on a lemonade.
damn! eat here.
This restaurant is a little over-hyped. The food was good, not great. The menu was limited in offerings for our group.
Excellent lunch. Had the oysters with garlic chili sauce, heirloom tomatoes with crab and ribs. Sauce was spicey sweet. Waitress was very attentive. We just ordered an entree at a time and split. Highly recommend the restaurant.
Excellent food in a space that is much too loud for anything other than light comments and unimportant conversation.
Out of specials, hot beer, fishy fish, over-cooked sides. We won't be back.
Absolutely excellent! Best wood fired oysters I've ever had! Charcuterie was on point and everything was home made. Excellent value!
Food was good but a tad pricey. Service was slow and inattentive.
This a must every year we come to NOLA. My fav is the oysters with chili butter. The special appetizer last night was a Tuna Crudo that was ridiculously amazing. Perfect for the summer. Lite and refreshing!!! Next we had rabbit dumplings and gulf fish fishermen style with creamy grits!!! Y'all I'm telling you this is NOLA food in one stop. Drinks, wine and food. Can't get much better than that!!!!!
The food and service was excellent. We recommend the pork ribs and ham hock.
Stumbled up on this place after a friend recommended it. Definitely try the fried livers and the ribs. They were amazing to eat. The livers paired with mint leaves and pickled onions is amazing (and i'm not a fan of livers). The cochon dish was amazing! So much flavor in each bite!
Vraie cuisine. Bien sûr à l anglo-saxon ne mais avec de la finesse
