    My family wanted to eat here before they closed. Everyone enjoyed their meal. I had the sea bass which was outstanding. I’m hoping Jennifer finds a new spot for her restaurant. It would be sad if Omaha wouldn’t be able to experience her exceptional food.

    It was so nice to be able to dine at JCoco before they close at this location. The food has always been outstanding & the locale is special to many who remember shopping for groceries at Wohlners. Look forward to their next endeavor. Just hope it's not to far west.

    First time at J. CoCo, and very impressed! Drinks were amazing and the food was mouth watering. We started an order of the pork belly steamed buns (one of the best I have ever had), along with an order of the drunken mussels. For entrées we had the sea bass and the plum creek chicken. Also had to order the vanilla bean crème brûlée. Such great place and looking forward to coming back VERY soon! Highly recommend going to try this place!

    We have had a number of entrees over time and they all are very good. My wife had the duck and said it was wonderful this last time, and I had the steak/frites which was equally as good.

    We waiting 30 minutes for a glass of wine and 45 minutes for food. My husband’s ordered the steak frites and the fries were Oreida’s crinkle cut frozen fries just thrown on top of his very small steak. Nothing like what is pictured in any of their review images online. I got the NY strip, but I definitely don’t think that was the cut of meat I was given. It was cut into 4 thin strips and was the size/thickness of maybe filet? Really upset no one informed us of running out of food. I understand supply chain issues during Covid, but transparency is key especially when consuming food.

    My husband and I love J. Coco. It is always a great experience. The food is phenomenal—I do not understand how they get so much flavor into a tiny short rib taco!! We also had the cedar salmon and lobster bolognese and WOW both were delicious. The service is great and they are usually busy so don’t expect a quick in/out dining experience. Enjoy your dinner and conversation with your table in between courses. 5 Stars all around

    The special occasion was son’s 21st birthday. Restaurant aware but totally inconsequential. Restaurant was busy which may explain why our order too so long to be served. 2 of the 4 main courses ordered were cold. Two Desserts were ordered and they were disappointing as both were partially cold as if quickly microwaved. Not what we expected.
