J. Coco Ratings and Reviews
We had both the nightly special and an entrée from the menu as well as an appetizer. All were awesome. The Cheese Frenchie appetizer was delicious and quite filling for just (2) people. The Barbacolo Short Ribs were very tender and flavorful. The special was outstanding! It was an Oxtail noodle dish...I don't remember. Our waiter Scott was awesome as well. We will be going back to try more of the menu!
The appetizers are outstanding- delicious and creative. The menu is more than sufficient- not so extensive that food is only adequate. Instead every entrée that I have tasted is so well-prepared and is outstanding. The service is consistently excellent. A downside- the noise level rises as the evening progresses.
Great upscale restaurant that pretends to be a neighborhood eatery. The ambiance is casual yet classy without being the slightest bit pretentious. The bar makes really good drinks, and the food is delicious with enough occasional menu changes to keep it interesting. Prices are about average for this type of place. Plenty of parking in back, so don't freak out at the 3 full parking places out front.
I love this restaurant!! My husband had been there for lunch before, but this was his first dinner experience. He was blown away by the food. This was our first time trying the Kimchi Pork Belly Fried Rice as a side dish. OMG!! This needs to be served in a larger portion as an entree. So delicious!! You can never go wrong with the Seabass. My personal favorite.
Two very good meals; two very average meals.. Two dishes were not hot; hardly warm. Waiter was OK; but spent most of his time with regular customers.. Can't blame him; but every customer can be a regular. We have been here numerous times; while it was an O K experience ; was our first time we were not very pleased. We will be back.
I must say that we were disappointed. My husband and I have been here before and have been very happy and enjoyed it quite a lot. We thought this would be a perfect place to treat our family after a small wedding (10 people total). The young man that waited on us was fairly new, but he was delightful. The food took longer than expected and when it arrived we were disappointed to say the least. While the Wagu burgers the younger ones had were good, the tenderloin medallions were not not tender at all, and overcooked for medium rare. The portion size of the sea bass was minuscule, had to dig to find it at all. For your sake, I hope we were just there on an off night.
We've been meaning to try this place for a while. We (finally) made it happen last night, and it's our new favorite. We started with the buffalo cauliflower bites, and they definitely satisfied the buffalo sauce Jones without having to eat chicken wings. (I'm going to presume it's a whole lot healthier... please don't educate me if I'm wrong.) Then my wife had the barbacoa style short ribs served over a creamy corn risotto that was cooked perfectly (not that I ate half of hers in addition to my own meal). I had the spice dusted ribeye that came with these cornbread crusted loaded mashed potato balls. Yup. And, of course, we had to split some Brussels sprouts. Fried, with miso and bacon. We didn't hate. No dessert (sorry we let you down). At any rate, well worth trying if you haven't, and I'm sure we'll be back sooner than we'd like to admit.
