Coho Cafe - Issaquah Ratings and Reviews
We had friends visiting from out-of-town and opted for Coho because of their extensive gluten-free menu options as one can only eat that. As always, the menu choices and daily specials are very good. Although the weather wasn't cooperative , we were seated in a quieter section away from the loud bar scene. Everyone found something they liked and ordered which was brought in a timely manner. My only concern was the seemingly sparse wait staff - maybe someone called in ill? Our server seemed quite frazzled, and forgot refills and requests for extras as she was serving an entire section alone. We love this restaurant and will return. Everyone has an off day.
We have had dinner here a few times before and it was always great. This time though everything was just off. Calamari appetizer was overdone in oil that was way too old and was tasting bitter. Also there were rest pieces on there from previous batches that had been fried for quite some time. Yak. Bread was old, my burger was burned, my daughter's steak was well prepared but the meat was mediocre quality at best. All in all a miss this time.
We had a 5:45pm reservation our group of 5, with a request to sit outside at on the patio. The restaurant was almost empty when we arrived. We were told they don't reserve for the patio. The patio only had a few tables occupied, but they would not seat 5 of us together outside, so we were inside. The waiter was quite rude at first. We were seated at a booth and pulled up a chair to keep our party of 5 less squished. The waiter did not like that and we ended up being squished!!
We had the Passport card for a free entree & a coupon for the same. They would not honor both even though other Coho's will honor both at the same time. They said if we had 2 Passport cards we could have 2 free entrees. Not a great experience. Will definitely not return!
On our very first day in Seattle 10 years ago my husband, 9 year old son and I, when driving around checking out where to live, happened upon Coho's Issaquah for lunch. It has been our family go to restaurant ever since, Father's Day 2016 found us there again for the hundredth time! We dined outside after boating on Lake Sammamish, and it rounded off a lovely evening! This restaurant never disappoints! They have their usual menu which has had minor changes over time - everything good, plus a seasonal menu with new dishes. The food is always tasty with interesting combinations, and great value. Happy hour is even greater value!
Some of our favorites are: Coconut Shrimp, Sambal Shrimp, Avocado Crab Tower, Mahi Mahi Taco, Ginger Chicken Lettuce Wraps, and Mains: Green Chicken Curry, Prawn Pad Thai, Kogi Beef Stack, Grilled Salmon. My boys love the burgers too!
Almond Joy is great for dessert!
Went to Coho's to celebrate a significant birthday. There was another birthday group there as well as a work luncheon going on. The food was good, it was pretty busy and sometimes it was hard to get the attention of the waitress. The hardest thing was the noise level was very loud. We had a hard time carrying on a conversation within our table. I would recommend coming later after the normal lunch time, or coming when they first open at 11:00 if you want a quieter dining experience.
We recently tried Coho Cafe for Easter brunch and enjoyed it so much that we returned for Mother's Day brunch. Place was busy, but service was fast and our waiter was very friendly and attentive. Food was very good. I had the Chorizo egg scramble with a very yummy chile verde sauce and hash browns. Will definitely return!
Usually the Coho Cafe's salmon dishes are great value and tasty. This month's special 'salmon with mushrooms and arugala' was not so great - came swimming in a pool of excess liquid that overwhelmed the mashed potatoes..........usually a great realizable local spot even if it is in the parking lot of Fred Meyer and Best Buy.
We had the Prime rib for the first time after many times eating at both the Issaquah and Redmond CoHo locations. It was excellent and may entice us to dine out more often on busy weekend nights. Reservations are recommended as it filled up fast! Sunday Brunch is my favorite, but lunch and dinners are so good it's hard to choose!
My wife and I have been to the Coho Cafe in Issasquah several times and have never had a bad experience. The food is always well prepared and presented, including on split meals. The service is always great with friendly and professional staff and the ambiance, while casual, is very pleasing. Well worth the longish drive for us!
I must have ordered the wrong thing since my yakisoba was not as good as I had hoped. It came tepid and not hot. The tofu cubes were hard and chewy, the broccoli contained mostly stems. I sent it back and had the delicious chowder instead. We usually have good meals at Coho and will go back but I will not order the yakisoba again. One of the specials last month was shrimp pad thai which was absolutely delicious. It should come back as a regular menu item!
Love this place to meet colleagues, have lunch with friends, or an impromptu happy hour with the hubby. Offers more variety and quality without going overboard on price. The seasonal cocktails are creative and yummy - I always look forward to seeing what they come up with for the new season!
We decided this year to do something we normally do not like to do: go out to eat a meal during a holiday. This Mother's Day was no exception, so we went out with some trepidation that it would be overcrowded and frantic. We were pleasantly surprised, however, that our table was ready when we arrived, and our waitress was very attentive. She had entertainment and menus for our two grandkids, and was ready to take drink orders right away (but with no pressure). When drinks arrived, one of the glasses had ice in it but no drink (which she noticed before she got to our table). That added to the humor because of her attitude about it, and was quickly corrected. Our meal arrived in good time and order, and the seven of us had a great time. Way to go, Coho.
