Despite having a reservation we ended up waiting 40 minutes to be seated with no option besides going next door to their bar (2 doors down) and wait. Bar was also packed with other patrons waiting for tables. Once finally seated, it was packed with and felt cramped. Food was delightful but small portions.

The place is nice, we were the first ones there and attended to quickly. The food was good, I have the social breakfast, scrambled eggs, potatoes bacon and wheat toast. All of it wa good but ootwtoes could have been softer. A few people came nothing crazy and was still pretty quiet ok a Saturday at burinch time. Doesn’t seem like a busy area for a big crowd to come but it’s a nice restaurant, modern touches and chill vibes.

Three diners, and we each very much enjoyed our choices. Tres amigos was homemade tortilla chips with guacamole, queso, and salsa. We ate it all within minutes. Beef tacos, chorizo enchilada, and chicken quesadilla, were next. So many different and delicious flavors, we were each completely satisfied with our own and the samples of each other's choices. Churros for dessert rounded out our meal nicely. It won't be long before we make a return visit. Bravo to Coco's Cocina.

I loved the intimate atmosphere of this restaurant, in a historic Syracuse building. The menu was diverse and included a vegan option (I understand their menu changes, but it seemed there was something for everyone from the choices presented). The beer and wine list was small, but also with a good range of options (no spirits due to location close to a church as per NYS law). Our appetizer and entrees arrived very quickly and our waiter was pleasant, professional, and attentive. The food was excellent with one exception- both of us noted that our food was not completely hot when it arrived. It was warmish. I ordered chicken bibimap, which could not really be re-heated because of the mix of fresh ingredients. Nonetheless it was delicious. I thought the prices were very fair for the quality of the food. The other cold factor was the restaurant itself. It was on the chilly side. I am naturally always cold, but I noticed a few other diners wearing their jackets throughout dinner, as I did. So turn up the temperature on all fronts and this would have been a 5/5 experience!

About the restaurant
As far as authentic Persian experiences go, Turkish Cuisine in the Hell's Kitchen District really cannot be beat. Once you step foot in this place you will feel that you have been transported direct to the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul. The donor kebabs are highly sought after, as is the Turkish coffee for lunch. With the abundance of fresh vegetables served with every dish at Turkish Cuisine, you really cannot go wrong.

For a cultural experience, consider taking the family to Turkish Cuisine for your next gathering. The menu contains a bit of everything, so even the most discerning of taste buds are likely to find something that appeals. Consistent", "tasty" Turkish fare at "reasonable" rates make this Theater District veteran a "delightful" choice "pre-curtain". Full review Zagat. Turkish cuisine has a beautiful heated backyard seating area .

About the restaurant
The Richmond features is the perfect space for an intimate Saturday evening out or a casual group gathering. A beautiful covered garden patio allows you the opportunity to dine alfresco.

“With custom-made, Bauhaus-style, leather chairs and wooden block tabletops, earth tones are the underlying color scheme. But the eye may zero in on a few points in the room -- the teal-hued banquettes, a pulley fan system and massive windows salvaged from a Brooklyn factory. These function as partitions in the dining room.” -Pamela Silvestri

Had a reservation and was seated promptly. Ordered an espresso martini flight and food. Food took a bit but server was updating me and apologetic multiple times. I was not in a hurry so didn't mind it at all as I had more time to savor the martinis. When the food did arrive, it was great and the cook came over himself to apologize for the delay. The manager also came to apologize and offered a comp; so overall it exceeded expectations with everyone being so attentive and making sure I had a good experience. Great views and relaxing setting. 100% would return and recommend--Thanks!
