    We were celebrating the 53rd anniversary of relatives. They are new to the area and it was their first time at Cochon. They loved it and the delicious food. We all had a very enjoyable time and definitely will be returning. Kudos to our very attentive waitress.

    This is my new favorite place for a special occasion. Service was friendly and attentive without being overbearing. Upon learning that we were celebrating our anniversary, our server printed off keepsake menus, which was sweet. Food was excellent, and the portions were substantial. We were especially impressed by the “large” pour of wine by the glass. Definitely a repeat for us!

    Awesome food!!! Everything was delicious, had the tomato/blue cheese plate for an app and the wood fired ribeye for dinner. Everything locally sourced, fresh and made from scratch. We are from Richmond and are already thinking about how we can get back to Williamsburg this fall to eat here. So good.

    If you're a well traveled foodie do not mistake Cochon on 2nd with its highly regarded counterpart (Cochon) New Orleans, they are not related at all. Maybe it was an off-night for them but one thing is certain, I'm questioning Cochon on 2nd's authenticity. The good: Upon arrival the atmosphere was cozy, the hostess was cordial and pleasant as we were escorted to our table. The drinks from the main bar were nice. Our appetizer salads were well balanced and good. But, this is as far as it goes as everything else that followed was a complete disaster. The bad: Within the first 20 minutes of us sitting down we saw 3 tables around us complain about their food and send them back to the kitchen. My son and I received the wrong appetizers to begin with, which prompted our head server to apologize and comp the mistake. 10 minutes later my wife's salad arrived as the assistant spilled the tomato-caprese salad all over the table, she looked at my wife and said; sorry i'm not wearing gloves to be able to pick'em up but you can… Needless to say how that ended, it prompted an apology from our head server again. At this point we are questioning whether Tuesday night is training day for them, and whether to leave by this point. The ugly: When our main entrees orders arrived; Duck breast with a fig-port glaze, the special Whole Red Snapper fried, and Aged Prime Black Angus Beef Tenderloin, kitchen mistakes abound on every single dish. The only thing cooked right on all 3 dishes were the potatoes but to be honest our neighborhood pub has better. The fish was tasteless, my sun had to request lime wedges and add salt & pepper for flavor. My wife's Beef Tenderloin was the opposite, heavily salted, and under-cooked. She ordered medium-well, and she got rare! Then my Duck breast arrived over-cooked, we sent the dishes back to the kitchen. Our head server tried to appease & apologize for what mainly seemed kitchen mistakes and poorly trained staff but management is to blame!

    Cochon is our go-to restaurant for special events (graduation, anniversary, etc). We've been numerous times because the food is amazing and the atmosphere and ambiance are perfect for those special occasions. It can be a little pricey but well worth it.

    We have enjoyed dining at Cochon in the past because of its lively ambiance and wonderfully prepared dishes. Last night we were very disappointed. We enjoyed the Gazpacho although it was served in a large bowl which was almost too much for an appetizer. The ribs served as an appetizer were dry and almost meatless. The chicken Paillard was over cooked, very dry and tasteless , however the salmon was delicious and nicely prepared. We also love the fresh bread that is served nightly. The service last evening was excellent and because the chicken had not been properly prepared, it was removed from the bill. Thank you.
