    Four of us dined and 3 patrons felt their food was very good. However, I ordered the pork chop, which unfortunately was not good and certainly not worth he price. It was overcooked and dry and I was quite disappointed. This is an expensive restaurant and the food quality should always be superior, as it was on my prior visits. Last night was a let down for me, unfortunately.

    My husband & went last night for an early Father's Day dinner & we understood exactly why this restaurant is 5 Stars. The ambience, attentiveness by Eric was SUPREME! Most importantly, the FOOD! Oh my goodness! I had the Sea Scallops & Shiitake mushrooms. I've never tasted scallops so succulent. They were almost creamy. Best meal I've had. Oh and when go, please be sure to order the Pear Martini. I think we've found our "Special Spot".

    This was our first visit. The service was fantastic and the food was amazing (Cajun shrimp for appetizer, dinner entrees were fried fish & pan seared scallops - both delicious, finished with the dessert duo, chocolate mousse and crème brûlée). I highly recommend Cochon on 2nd. We definitely look forward to coming back!

    A perfect birthday celebration dinner at Cochon. The crab cake app that we shared was delicious. Tenderloin was perfectly prepared. The generously sized pork chop was tender and savory. Both were served with those amazing cheesy potatoes on the side. The service was impeccable and we appreciated the descriptions of specials and guidance in wine selections… and the chocolate mousse! We’re already talking about what to try on our next visit.

    Cochon on 2nd was recommended to us and it was excellent. The sauce for the pork chop was a little burnt; Chef agreed and the dish was comped. The salmon was perfect and the scalloped potatoes were wonderful. The staff was very friendly, helpful and attentive. Well worth the price and I would definitely recommend Cochon on 2nd.

    We shared a delightful meal at Cochon last night. Arrived early for our reservation, but we're greated warmly and immediately taken to our table. Allison and Christine were skilled at sharing their table service duties. And Allison's enthusiastic and mouthwatering descriptions of the additional of menu items made my husband and I both wish we could order one of everything. Our appetizers of trois petit Cochon and fralax were delicious and were the cocktails. My rockfish was perfectly prepared and my husband's pork chop was tender and flavorful. And a perfect meal was topped off with slices of lemon pound cake. Truly an all around great dining experience. Kudos to everyone! Wish we were staying another night.

    I spent a wonderful weekend with my sister and this was our final dinner in town. The ambiance is adorable, rustic but with a modern flare, our servers (yes you have two!) were spot on with suggestions and recommendations. The cocktails were fun (I had a peach martini) and the food was impeccable. I highly recommend Cochon because they treat you as if you’re the only one in the room. 10/10!!

    My husband and I were visiting the area and did our research to find a nice restaurant and decided upon Cochon on 2nd. We were greeted promptly and seated by a very nice lady. We sat our table approx 10min before any server greeted us. Our server, Byron, took our drink order and promised to bring us menus. After about 5 min Byron came to our table and asked again what my husband's drink was. We observed Byron walking by our table several times offering bread/butter to tables around us, giving them the specials, etc., but not offering us bread and/or speaking to us again. We waited for 20min with no drinks and no food menus delivered to our table. Observing other tables around us who were seated after us - had drinks, bread, and giving their orders to their servers. My husband and I, very disappointed, left the restaurant. We spoke to the hostess and let her know we were leaving with no response from her. Byron saw us leave and he just stared at us, with no comment or asking us what was wrong. Very disappointed. POOR service and lack of communication among the staff.

    Cochon was full of graduation parties, so they were super busy. Service was not as good as usual, but the food was fab like it always is. We had to sit in Moody's Room because of the crowding --- not nearly as nice as the main dining room. Prices are getting out of control, however - will need to stay home and cook more often. Not Cochon's fault - they are caught in the middle.

The ambiance was great, lots of room between tables, making for an intimate setting. A few special surprises were provided, but, they will stay surprises, you will need to go to know.

    This was our first time at Cochon. It was great. Our server Luis was so wonderful and the whole restaurant was very attentive without being overbearing. The food was delicious and reasonably priced for a fine dining experience. We all loved our entrees (fish special, pork chop special, scallops and chicken) and the rib appetizer was the best ribs we ever had. Overall just a really great experience.
