    First time. Had chef’s special. Excellent! Renee our waitress gave exceptional service. Wine list held many I know well to be excellent selections. The Albariño was out of this world with the main course clam dish. Cochin on 2nd is a new “go to” place for us after a perfect evening out.

    We enjoyed the wine dinner and it was unbelievable!! Met many people and the Chef was amazing. Great historical background on wine but didn’t over do the lesson between each course. Best wine dinner pairing I have been to. Highly recommend

    We enjoyed the night out and had high expectations of the culinary experience. The food was tasty and well prepared but did not meet our expectations. Sides were potatoes, green beans, and carrots for all entrees, which was too basic. Apple relish for the pork chop was over seasoned and not tasty. Octopus was tender, and fried oysters were great.

    Great find for date nights and one of the best Old Fashions I've had in a long time. I hope the octopus salad finds it way as a menu item. My wife absolutely loved the NY strip with the fois gras butter.

    There were three members in our party. For the two, their entree were wonderful. I on the other hand did not order fish and I was disappointed. I ordered the pork chop. It was faty and rather chewy. The service was 5 star! The appetizers And the cocktails were delicious. I would recommend Cochin to a friend. I would tell them however, that it was very high end and not to order the pork chop.

    The tenderloin was perfectly cooked but tasted charred. It seemed much noisier than previous times we have been there. Maybe we came too soon since the last time we were there (for my birthday) when it was all perfect.

    Fresh, flavorful, locally-sourced food prepared with care and attention. I don't normally get excited about salad greens, but the lettuce used in the Warm Goat Cheese salad was like eating the essence of lettuce--minty & earthy & very fresh-tasting. We loved the rest of the meal, too--the fish special, the duck, the dessert duo (I love not having to choose!). I knew we were in the right place when the bread served at the beginning came out warm, with delicious butter to accompany it. We'll definitely be back.

    A gem of a restaurant with a small menu - but every choice was special. It's pricey, moderated by the combination of the quality of the food and the atmosphere.

    The NY Strip steak was very tough to eat. For $59 dollars the NY Strip meat should have been outstanding and very tender. While the service we very good, the resturant should have at least discounted the price of the NY Strip due to the poor quality of meat. This is the first time we eat at this place. I would go back one more time to give them a second chance. Two strikes though and they will be out.

    The service was excellent. Renee was our server and she was very knowledge of the menu the ingredients. She very friendly and attentive. We don’t drink so she recommend a nice non alcoholic drink called, Mocktail. Food was okay-good. My dish Grilled Salmon with added Scallops was cooked perfect temperature but tasted a little too salty. It may have been due to the fact, I’ve refrained from salt and my palette may just was sensitive. There was no type of relish or sauce. Portions size was very adequate. My husband had the Grilled Pockchops which was good. The pork chop was served with a relish on the top. Price was moderate, what we expected for a nice evening out. I recommend Cochon as a Nice Romantic and Cozy place to dine and celebrate your special occasions.

    The food was okay. We were not too impressed at this visit. It was our first. After our visit I told the friend who recommended Cochan to us and he had just heard that the chef left a few days prior to our visit. No idea how much that played to the food flavor or menu.

    We had not been to Cochon since before COVID and decided to go for our anniversary (56yrs!). We thoroughly enjoyed it - loved the cozy atmosphere although it was a bit dark for reading the menu (we were in the back room which we otherwise loved). The food was excellent and the service good. We were reminded how much we used to enjoy it and will go back again soon, I hope.

    There was much written on OpenTable and in other reviews regarding how amazing Cochon on 2nd was for a wonderful Williamsburg Dining Experience. On this recent visit the service was very good, however the food was just average at best and given the price of this dinner we would have expected much better. There are far better dining experiences in Williamsburg and Hampton Roads.
