Food was delicious. It was a Restaurant Week deal. Only complaint was very small portions on some things - 2 small slices of charcuterie with 2 crackers for the appetizer; a very small piece of arctic char for the entree. I know it's a good deal but I don't expect to need to order additional food to make it a meal.

We visited for Restaurant Week. Tried the tartine and the boar ragu tagatelli. the Tartine was OK, but the boar pasta was delicious. It was rich and pasta tasted very fresh. The service was slow considering we were there so early and there weren't that many people there when we got there, but the food made it worth it.

We went during restaurant week so the meal (appetizer, main and dessert) was a great value. We had the mussels and charcuterie appetizer, pork chops and the tagliatelle for mains and chocolate torte for dessert. All were excellent. Enjoyed the ambiance and service as well. Would recommend

3 for 35 menu.
Halibut was great. Base sauce on halibut dish was similar to soup on the menu. Would have been nice to have it different. Other than that, very good meal.

Went for Restaurant Week for lunch. The charcuterie was disappointing, as was the swordfish (decent lunch portion, but presentation on a bed of beans with some diced peppers was lacking, and there was nothing of interest in the flavor profile - I'd recommend adding some spinach and za'atar - for example - to zip it up). On the other hand, the mushroom tartine had rich flavor and the boar ragu was amply-sized and delicious. So, pretty mixed experience. During RW, everything should "wow" the patron to lure them back for more meals. Lunch was $20 for the entree and a cocktail was $13. 🙄 Waitstaff were friendly but pretty slow. But it was busy. Also, appreciated the calm, efficient kitchen operation. Beautiful space with lots of light. Starting to look a little worn at the edges.

I always enjoy Lecosho when I am in the area. It has a comfortable vibe that feels European and cozy on a rainy day. Plating is beautiful, and presentation is lovely, right down to the weighty utensils and linen napkins. Thanks for making my museum visit complete.

Noisy, like most downtown restaurants. Swordfish was good, service was attentive. Would go back unless it was a serious lunch.

Food was really yummy and I liked the ambiance. Service was good, they didn't make us feel rushed. It was a chill spot on a Tuesday evening. There was some meat in my food that I don't remember being listed in the description, but the pieces were big enough to get out of the way.

The food presentation was good, but the dishes were poorly executed. The menu is not the same as online or on open table. It is much more limited and the prices are higher in the restaurant. We had the olive tapenade. I got an olive pit, which should not happen in this price range. I got the goat cheese ravioli. It was not cooked correctly. The outer edges were hard and not enjoyable in the least. Goat cheese was the only flavor in the dish and I could have easily left the entire dish even though I was hungry. My husband has the wild boar ragu. The execution of his dish was much better. The pasta was cooked appropriately and the sauce had good flavor. I would not go back.

Very regional carnivore-forward. Simple and minimal decor, but serving hearty fare by knowledgeable, engaging, energetic wait staff. We had a wonderful meal and recommend without hesitation. If you’re a fan of fancy atmosphere, this is wrong place for you. But if you like excellent food in unpretentious surroundings, do not miss.

We went here before a show and were very happy. It’s great for couples or small groups. The pork chops are the best I have had in any restaurant. Our server was attentive and knew the menu and wine pairings.

My only ding would be for lighting. We had to use our phones to read the menu and bill. A brighter candle might help or having the overhead lights just about 10% brighter.

This restaurant has a great location and an attractive menu. However, it all went south after we sat down. The waitress was so hurried, she walked away when we asked her for drink recommendations. The cheese tray appetizer was enough for maybe two people and was supposed to serve five. It would have been helpful to know it was small when we ordered it. Considering the price, we assumed it was large. I ordered the ravioli and was disappointed. It was cold and chewy (served al dente, but not clear if that was intended of if it was undercooked) and lacked flavor. With so many great choices nearby, it’s hard to recommend this place to diners. My recommendation is to the owners who need to overhaul their menu and make sure their cooks are following recipes.

We really wanted to like this place. Service was fine, although not particularly helpful regarding menu items. The duck special tasted like canned meat and was very very dry. The kale salad was fine, the gelato and chocolate torte were both good. My husband enjoyed his rib eye steak, but we both agreed it was not a place we ever need to return.

This was our second time at Lecosho, and both times the food was very good, creative, and a reasonably good value for restaurants in the same class. The service was likewise very good -- present when needed but not overly attentive. The noise level is relatively high in the space, but was fine for discussion among a group of 6 given that the restaurant was not full on that night.
