Love the hummus at J Coco. Enjoyed that along with tacos and husband had a burger. We enjoyed a great bottle of wine and dined on the patio to the east. Scott is our favorite waiter there too! He is always great!

Normally I love everything about this restaurant. This time the service was slow and "crabby" and my friend had to send two drinks back. The champagne was flat in one and the wine was sour in another. The food was delicious as usual though.

Food was great. Service was attentive, but not very personable, which is fine. Spring for the brussel sprout side. Best dish I've had in a while from any restaurant. Will be back just for that!

The food is great. I tried appetiZer fried octopus and mussels. The taste is fabulous. My main course sea bass fish is tender however, the side dish kimchi fried rice became my favorite. The rice sauce tastes a little bit sweet and there are delicious kimchi and pork inside with a one side fried egg. The desserts of mixture berries is unforgettable. I drink two glasses of California Chardonnay. The sour activate the tounge and super good for appetite. A nice dinner!

Have already sent an email about our experience.
Checked website for menu and saw that duck was available. Since it’s my husband’s favorite and celebrating Father’s Day made reservation. No duck on Saturday’s menu. I ordered the pork chop and it was dry and over cooked with a burnt inedible side that I have no idea what it was suppose to be. Ordered chocolate mint cake for dessert and it was served cold so the buttercream filling tasted like mint butter. Was much better after sitting for awhile and coming to room temperature. While I was not charged for my entree when I go out to dinner I’m not looking for free stuff, I’m looking to eat dinner together. Would also appreciate the website to be current with what is actually being served.
Have been to j coco’s many times and never had an experience like this one. Hoping it’s not a trend.

Food was good—ribeye and chicken. Service was fair—friendly but slow and not what I consider “great service.” Made reservation through OpenTable. Left a note that we were celebrating our anniversary, and not one person acknowledged it. A simple “Happy Anniversary” from the host or server would have gone a long way. You missed an opportunity to ‘wow’ first time diners.

It was very good except my salmon was too salty . I asked for no salt but still was salted. I just used my fork to rub it off. I can't have salt due to my kidneys and its means alot to me when asked no salt they understand. Otherwise everything else was great.
Thanks for asking Maribeth

Delish! Great service. No sitting around waiting to order or for our meal--but didn't feel rushed either. Enjoyed the stuffed squash blossoms to start--highly recommend. I had the Cobb Salad and my friend ordered the short ribs. We were very happy with both our choices. Nice wine list--had what we were looking for. Will definitely return. We liked the neighborhood feel of the restaurant. Good parking available. Be sure to make reservations.

Always a wonderful experience. Waitstaff are attentive and the food is delicious. I ordered my ribeye medium and it was nearly well done but still tasted so good I didn't send it back. Can get a bit noisy inside but has a wonderful patio for good weather occasions.

Food was great but service was not. We were there later in the evening on a Saturday night. One larger table near us was attended to the entire evening. Theirs seemed to be the only table that had good service that night. While we waited for 45 minutes for salads, their appetizers were delivered within about 5 minutes, and their dinner was delivered within 15 minutes. There were three tables outside in addition to ours and theirs that were not attended to, and six tables inside with only one having food on it when we walked in.

Food was great, service was great. It was a little noisy for old folks and a wee bit on on the pricey side for the food. For example, the beet salad was wonderful, but very small. The menu is imaginative and I think it is a good choice for a special occasion.

Many great experiences with J Coco. Wife's birthday dinner this time. Fabulous, succulent sea bass and perfectly cooked tenderloin medallions with 3 different sauces capped off with an awesome Gran Marnier cheese cake and layer chocolate cake made the day complete. Excellent service. The building is acoustically uncomfortable when busy but intimate nonetheless. Highly recommended.
