If you’re worried about Covid, I’d skip this place. The owner and chefs weren’t wearing masks and the tables were not six feet apart. Shame on them for not protecting their patrons and staff.

Was hoping for some more pork options since their sister, Moody's, offers so much and more socially distanced tables. Tables are certainly not 6 feet apart!!!! No one in the kitchen were wearing masks!!! Feels like normal times, but I don't want things to feel normal right now so it was a bit off putting. Have to admit that tarnished my experience a bit as a result and I'll pause before returning.

We enjoyed our meal outside the night before so much we came back to eat inside the following night. I started with a Bulleit Rye Manhattan and my wife had a glass of sauvignon blanc. We shared the arugula salad based the recommendation of our very helpful server, Sam. We decided to go with beef this night, my wife choosing the on menu beef tenderloin while I chose the ribeye special, and we washed it down with a nice bottle of Cakebread Cabernet. Another great meal and great service from Sam. Highly recommended!

Our first visit to Cochon and we decided to sit outside. Our server, Brianna, was hilarious and helpful! We started with their signature martini and old fashioned, both of which were quite good. We shared the fried oysters appetizer, and then had the on menu pork chop and lamb chops with a great Jordan cabernet. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. Highly recommended!

Great service and best food we had in Williamsburg! Wonderful cocktails, great outdoor space. The outdoor tent faced the road which was disruptive. The service was attentive, fun, inviting, and warm as we celebrated my wife's birthday.

Charming environment, helpful staff, felt safe distance from other diners. Food was good, cooked perfectly to order for degree of "doneness". Not a large menu but nice variety of choices - salads were particularly memorable. Entree prices what you would expect for a quality restaurant and our waiter timed things well so we didn't feel rushed. Wine list is a bit overpriced but other than that will come back there again for a special occasion.

Food was outstanding, but pricy. Sevice was friendly and efficient. It was not the restaurant's fault, but for the first half of our evening we were seated near a loud table of six (no profanity, just loud. All in all, we consider Cochon a good choice for a special evening, but too pricy to be one of our regulars.

Seldom does a restaurant now exceed our expectations! Thursday evening was one of those times. My wife and I were celebrating a 54th Anniversary and the hostess who sitted us acknowledged the event and provide a specially printed menu with the occasion at the top.
Our server was extremely pleasant and efficient, not rushing us at any point during 2 hour dinner.
The Blazing Shrimp was an excellent start to our meal. We each chose a salmon dish. We both felt that the preparation and presentation were excellent. My salmon with a crab-stuffed filling was large, even for me. The sides of grilled vegetables and a potato dish were also great.
I need to mention that a younger couple eating near us, pre-paid a large portion of our meal as an anniversary gift unknowingly to us until the service brought us our check. This was an unbelievable expression of "paying it foward" in the Williamsburg's community.
Overall, this was a very memorable occasion.

The food was as good as Le Yaka and Fat Canary, but the ambiance was not. My husband and I enjoyed the meal but we felt it was overpriced $170.00 for two with 2 glasses wine. We have probably checked this square off since the price is similar to other places that have better ambiance.

The food and service was fabulous. I hd tuna Provençal that was phenomenal. We ordered a $10 piece of carrot cake to take home and share. It was by far the worst piece of carrot cake ever! plus it was 1/2 the size of what a $10 piece of cake should be and was two circles of thin cake with frosting in between. Cochon needs to remove this cake from the menu immediately

Great little gem in Williamsburg serving locally sourced food. Adherence to COVID restrictions is super important to me, and they did it right: customers required masks for entry, and all staff were masked too. The tables were spaced nicely - they do have outdoor seating but it was raining... so it was a wash, LOL. We had great drinks: a Bulleit old-fashioned for my date, and an Elderberry martini for me. Both were generously poured and delicious. To start, we had the seared sea scallops with shiitake mushroom brown butter sauce (it's listed as an entrée, but they offered it as an app special this evening). Wow, they were perfectly cooked, and the brown butter was awesome. Date had the 60 day dry aged NY strip - it did not disappoint! I had the lamb chops and they were also tender and tasty. There were so many other items on the menu that I wanted to try - will definitely be back to sample more!
