I have had nearly everything on the menu. I have enjoyed every bite. My wife and I probably eat there at least once a week.
Great food, great service.

Came for dual Birthdays and was not disappointed. Very nice ambiance by a fireplace white table cloth setting. Food was delicious, perfectly seasoned and cooked. Would love to go again if I’m the area.

This was our 4th visit. We love the food and the atmosphere. This time our waitress wasn't very knowledgeable as the wait staff has been in the past. We still enjoyed our meal!

The food was ok, but not what I would have expected for the prices they are charging. The main issue they have is the amount of time it takes for them to get meals out of the kitchen. We had dinner reservations for 7:30. We were seated almost immediately. Everything else after that was incredibly slow. We were there for two and a half hours. Over an hour went by from the time we finished our salads until our entrees came out. By the time we ate and ended up being able to pay, it was already 10:00. It was a long slow night with average food unfortunately.

This is supposed to be a high-end haute-cuisine fine-dining place, and it does have some of those elements, but somehow it fails to achieve all. For a place like this, you expect expensive small plates, which make up for the small portions by the exquisite taste and design, right? Well, here you get larger portions but less haute cuisine! So, it seems to be somewhere between a fine dining and a regular restaurant, but man, they go with the fine-dining part when it comes to the check! All being said, we had a good time on Valentine's night, and the ambience was adorable. Our server was really kind, but a bit preoccupied as she seemed to forget things over and over! Worth checking out if you are in town, but there are better French fine-dining options like Fat Canary in the area.

One of the best hidden restaurants in Williamsburg! You sink into the ambiance as soon as you step into the entrance. Smells of wood fired goodness , hospitality of the employees and views of the kitchen abound. You can feel the attention to detail taken in the restaurant and that also translates into the food and experience you receive.

Chocon was a great find, and after we located it and went in, we knew we had entered an excellent restaurant! Drinks were great, and the food really nice. Expertly prepared and extremely tasty. This is food you would find in France, or other countries and Williamsburg is lucky to have such an addition to their growing number of top-notch eateries. Our server was energetic, happy, and ready to please with excellent attention. We will be returning the next time we visit Williamsburg.

It was a great place to celebrate our anniversary. The Tuna Poke was very tender. The touch of jalapeño was nice but not overwhelming. My husband had the Pan Seared Scallops. There were four very large, tender scallops. I ordered one of the specials, roasted duck. It was very tender and cooked to my liking. Their au gratin potatoes were delicious. For dessert we had chocolate pate. It melted in your mouth. The service was excellent. They were very attentive, but gave us privacy. I would highly recommend Cochon on 2nd!

Food was outstanding as usual. Prices were a little higher due to overhead costs with limited COVID capacity restrictions, but still well worth it.

There is nothing about our experience dining at Cochon that was not five stars. From the moment you walk into the room, see the beautifully set and lit tables and the open kitchen, you just know that you are going to have a fine-dining experience. While the wine list is not extensive, the selections are extensive and varied, fit for any purse or palate. The plating of the food was beautiful and our meals did not disappoint. We are fortunate to have such an excellent restaurant in Williamsburg.
