Food was amazing and service was great! The restaurant is just a bit too loud. It was hard to have a conversation without yelling across the table. If the noise bothers you, definitely go early in the week when they’re less likely to be busy. We went on a Saturday night. I’ll definitely be back!

The lighting turned me off. It is hard to see/read the menu and even appreciate the food. I couldn't see what on was on my plate and I like to be able to look and see. A complete turn down. Unlikely to return for dinner for that reason. I got lucky though. I ordered Hanoi noodles and even though I couldn't see it very well, it was tasty. I ordered without adds, just vegetarian. My husband and daughter did not care for their dishes. He had poke bowl and she ordered the Pork Ramen, which she said tasted like she was eating raw, unseasoned pork.

The service. Place was pretty amazing for our first time going. Made a reservation for a Friday night just in case, but it wasn't really needed. The staff was polite and when we asked, provided a few recommendation based on what we liked and disliked. They do assume you know how to eat with chop sticks, but when my date asked for silverware, she got it quickly and with no snarky attitude or judgement like other places. Lastly, the chefs must be on speed. We ordered 2 sushi rolls and 1 main dish, and I am not exaggerating when I say it was to our table 8 minutes. Co's service was amazing.

The food. What to say; tastes amazing and very reasonably priced. I don't recall reading anywhere that they only use fresh or local veggies. However, it seemed our dish had them, which impressed me. I was also impressed by the amount of chicken we got in the dish. Usually when we split a dish at other places, one of us feels like we didn't get enough and that was not the case here.

Overall. Co was a great dinning experience. I would recommend to everyone I know.

I don’t know if they forgot about us, but the table next to us, who came in after us, had their main course before our appetizers arrived. The waitress was great, but something was going on in the kitchen and management seemed unconcerned. By the end, it became a home with the table next to us about how long each of us would need to wait to receive order, corrected food, or even the check. Food was fine, but not worth the crazy delays. The table next to us had been there earlier in the week and had had such a nice time that they were returning - so I imagine CO can be great. But think it will be a while before we try again...

I love asian food so I was very excited but skeptical to try Co. I got the spicy udon and I LOVE spicy asian dishes so I got it 2 out of 3 spice level. I was pleasantly surprised that it was truly spicy. So many places always give me “white girl spicy”. The udon was delish and so we’re the rangoons and tuna tacos. I will for sure be returning to Co again soon!

Food was creative and tasty, but service was really off. I had an Old Fashioned that was served warm. The waitress said that was how it was supposed to be, but I have my doubts. Table next to us got their entrees before their appetizers.

The waiters blamed lack of service on 2 large parties (one was about 6 people, the other was 8 or so). The restaurant wasn't even full and we had booked a reservation for 2 in advance, so I didn't think that was a good excuse. It took 15 min for anyone to come to our table (only because I informed the hostess) and we sat around for about 30 min before anyone came by to take a food order. We had gotten drinks when someone came the first time, but I think the waiters were un disagreement over who would take care of our table so no one came back for awhile. We decided to finish drinks and eat elsewhere.

7pm Wednesday reservation. 4 top. Arrived early and were accommodated. Apps were great. Crab rangoon, pork buns, both steamed and fried, pretty good. Katsu chicken bowl had too much rice. Spicy Udon was a little sweet but better with soy sauce. Spicy Salmon Crunch poke bowl. Guest had nothing to compare to but was extremely satisfied and finished all of it. Curry Laksa was well done. I would have preferred an ounce more of noodles and more heat however they provided ample amounts on the side so I could add as necessary. Overall, great experience. Recommended.

Nice atmosphere, beautifup place! A little noisy as night when on, but it is a happening place! Great food. Service: we were checked on excessively, too many times, so we felt a bit rushed and bothered. Loved the Happy Hour options. It's great CO offers that on Friday evenings!

Tasty food and excellent service. Second time here and have to comment that the table setup, both high top and regular tables is odd. Seats that are uneven across regular tables and bolted high tops makes things less comfortable than things could be. Overall a great experience. Kudos to a Fantastic wait staff and a great kitchen!

Each time I've visited CO-Raleigh I've had an amazing experience. The food is exceptional. I've never been disappointed. On this recent visit I ordered a dish that I wasn't satisfied with. Without hesitation our server stepped in to find a dish that worked for me! The manger followed up with an apology and ensured I was satisfied with my new selection.

Let me say there was nothing wrong with the first dish in preparation, I just did not like the taste. They were gracious enough to accommodate me!

The service is amazing from the welcome greeting to the departing salutations.
