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.
Great food and friendly service. Happy hour selections are really good, as is the lunch and dinner menu.
The food at Coho is fantastic, the service is good, and the atmosphere is great. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who like great contemporary food!
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.
Great food and service. Need to get rid of wasps outside. Music inside is extremely loud and irritating. Don't know if I would dine inside in evening. Too bad because everything else is excellent.
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!
I had the black cod special. It was cooked perfectly and seasoned so well. The sides were perfect, I hope they add this dish to the regular menu.
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!
Great quality and flavors in all the dishes our party of seven ordered. The service was great. Just the portions were on the smaller side.
Had to remind waitress to bring a additional set of utinsels.
On the three deserts the caramel sauce was put in the bottom of the glass rather than poored over the ice cream.
