Les Cochon d'Or Ratings and Reviews
We love Les Cochon d’OR and have been loyal customers since it’s opening. We love sitting at the Chefs table. We travel 3.5 hours from our home to visit our favorite restaurant! It is consistently fabulous and Chef Kyle and his knowledgeable staff are always producing and serving the best cuisine using the freshest local meats fish and produce
We were staying at the Homestead and wanted to try a local restaurant, different than the resort's main dining room. Les Cochon d'Or did not disappoint! It is a short walk from the hotel, adjacent to the property. We were there on a Tuesday night in the "off season" and it was completely full. Definitely make reservations. The food is locally sourced and the menu is varied and thoughtful, with a sufficient wine list and yummy craft cocktails.
We started with the French martini. It was gorgeous and not too sweet. The Amarena cherry garnish was perfect. I got the spinach & arugula salad and my friend got the mountain Caesar salad. Both were very tasty and good portions. I could have done without the candied nuts on my salad (just too many tastes going on) but the hot bacon dressing was pretty awesome! Entrees were the almond-crusted mountain trout and the pan-seared duck breast & leg confit. My trout was outstanding - lightly breaded and not swimming in butter, so it was crispy and tasty. Loved the parsnip purée. My friend's duck was cooked to perfection. The portion sizes were plenty, but we decided to split dessert. We got the chocolate ganache with orange curd. It was presented beautifully and was very good, but I was underwhelmed. Next time, I'll order the creme brûlée instead.
Our waitress, Ashley, was wonderful. Made helpful suggestions and was attentive but not intrusive. Her wine recommendation complemented our meal perfectly and was actually cheaper than what we had originally chosen. She was more concerned with us having the "right" wine than upselling us.
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and will definitely return next time we are in Hot Springs.
What a wonderful place to eat! Great wine list with good recommendations by the server. We sat at the chef’s table with another nice couple. With awe and admiration we watched the food being produced down to the croutons. Wow. Everything is fresh and beautifully prepared. The result...My vegan risotto was delicious and my date’s breast of veal was perfect. Wish I had ordered the Cesar salad...will be back!
PS Nice to see real vegan on the menu.
LCdO never fails to deliver excellent food, service, wine and experience. We never (intentionally) fail to have at least one dinner there when in Bath County. On this visit we enjoyed the Wood Grilled Spanish Octopus. I had seen it on our previous visit and wanted to try it. The texture, taste and accompaniments were delicious. It's a bit off-putting to look at - but well worth "toughing it out." We also enjoyed the Seared Halibut with sauerkraut - perfect pairing and perfectly cooked - and the Pan Seared Duck Breast and Leg Confit - always a HUGE hit! The Pinot Noir that was recommended paired very nicely with all the dishes. The Orange and Chocolate dessert was a fabulous ending to the meal - sharing it provided the perfect amount of sweet to end a lovely evening. We'll be back next time in Bath - for certain! Congratulations to Kyle and Crystal for continued success.
There were four of us staying at The Homestead Resort and we decided to drive into "town" (Hot Springs) to try this local restaurant. The food was fantastic, the service happy and attentive and the place, though smallish, was really quite cozy. It was fun to be able to see the chef at work; and the owner's hand-crafted cocktails were delightful! We liked it so much that we went back a second night!!
Restaurant came highly recommended, so we may have gone in with elevated expectations. The space and ambiance are lovely, and the service is very good to excellent. The wine list contained a good number of unusual (in a good way) wines, but we found it overpriced. Nothing terribly inventive on the menu. The chef seems perhaps a bit bored? Cheese course was disappointing for the tiny portions, seriously, couldn't have been more than an ounce or two of each of the three selections. The selections were also not varied: all cheeses were medium-hard to hard and the flavors were similar. What about a nice soft/runny robust cheese to add to the other rather bland ones? Didn't happen. Onion soup was excellent, as was the trout entree (gluten free), but the cauliflower risotto, at $18, was overpriced, weakly flavored, and soupy, with many of the grains undercooked and chalky. This is one of the most highly touted restaurants in the area. I'm sorry we didn't have a better experience.
The restaurant is tiny and crammed with tables (full of people - I may add!). The person behind me kept bumping my chair. There was no place to move away from him. The server kept apologizing because she kept forgetting items because they were busy. Wine delivery took a long time because the sommelier also functions as bartender and waitress. We were behind the row of people at the bar. There was a drunk lady from bar who kept walking around talking to everyone. It was definitely not romantic or fine dining. Definitely not a French restaurant! Definitely not fine dining. However the server was charming and she made it a good experience!
Small intimate bistro/bar with fantastic food. Owners are French and the cuisine is authentic, well prepared and well presented, and served hot and in timely manner. Service and ambiance were great. Very romantic, nice wines. Located in the small village of Hot Springs, VA, just down the hill from The Homestead Resort. Best meal we had while in the area, among several other very nice meals. Will definitely return whenever we're in the area. Really a perfect spot for a wonderful and memorable dinner. Everything was done thoughtfully well.
It's always a real treat to visit LCdO. As usual, the service was excellent and the food was beautifully prepared and wonderful. The Seared Duck with Sweet Potato Puree and the Halibut with Sauerkraut were both delicious. The Chocolate Ganache with Orange dessert (shared) was a perfect finish. And the delightful Rose was a perfect compliment. We will definitely be back on our next visit to Hot Springs.
We were visiting Hot Springs, Va for an ophthalmology meeting and made reservations for a party of 4. We had an incredible dinner on 9-22-2017. We cancelled reservations at another restaurant for the following night and went back to Les Cochon d'Or! Again, it was fantastic! If you are ever in Hot Springs, Va this is THE PLACE!!!
We had a fantastic dinner! It will be hard to beat this experience! Every course was delicious...French onion soup, Wood Grilled Baby Octopus, Chicken Fricassee, Monk Fish, and best of all, the house specialty, Pancetta Wrapped Pork Tenderloin. The Creme Brulee was our favorite dessert! We would definitely recommend the French Cabernet Franc wine on the menu as well. Our server was friendly and always at hand when needed but not intrusive.
Excellent seafood of the highest quality and prepared in fresh seasonal dishes. We had Octopus, Halibut and Grouper as appetizer and two entrees. The staff knowledgeable and not overly attentive. Diverse wine list that would please most customers.
We always dine here when coming to The Homestead for a special getaway. 5 stars all around!
This restaurant is a real little gem tucked away in a gorgeous part of the country. The cooking is imaginative but with both feet on the ground. In the Michelin sense, I would say that this is definitely worth a detour. Of course, if one is a guest at the Homestead, this would be a welcome culinary upgrade to the overall gracious experience.
We were staying at the Homestead and Les Cochon d'Or was recommended to us. Great food. My wife said her steak was the best she has ever had. My pork tenderloin was outstanding. Excellent wine. Service was attentive and friendly. The owner made sure to come over and engage in conversation. It was a lively atmosphere. We would highly recommend and we will definitely go again.
We enjoyed our dining experience at Cochin d'Or. this was the 4th or 5th time we have dined there. It is a culinary jewel in the small town of Hot Springs and a nice change from the dining choices at The Homestead. My wife had the trout and I had the pork tenderloin. Both were well prepared. The restaurant was about 1/2 full, but it seemed to take a long time between our soup and our entree. Other than that, the service was flawless.
My husband and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary. Your beautiful restaurant was just perfect. The server was outstanding, and the food was amazing. I would highly recommend this establishment to anyone seeking an exquisite dining experience. Thank you for a wonderful evening!
The idea is good - execution is poor. We had high hopes for this experience, but were quite disappointed. The octopus appetizer came with three, two-inch tentacles atop a cluster of what appeared to be a mushy bean sauce. Such a portion for the price is absurd. The French onion soup base tasted strongly of jarred bouillion and was so chokingly salty that even the shrunken piece of bread atop could not offset its repellent effect. The meager Caesar salad (more like a mixed green salad with two flakes of Parmesan) had a total of two cherry tomato halves with saggy, wrinkled skin belying their age (the waitress said they were pickled...huh??) The one positive - pork tenderloin in pancetta was moist and flavorful, but at $29, we would have expected a side vegetable to stand up to the bed of a spoonful of black lentils.
Can't recommend enough if you are visiting The Homestead. We had three wonderful appetizers and three different mains, including their signature pork dish, the duck and chicken. Great tastes and food combinations. Everything was excellent, including two desserts!!
Serve was very good. Do note though that they have an open wood grill; so there is a bit of smokey smell inside the restaurant.
