Vegans and meat eaters equally excited by the unique menu. Everything was delicious. The Indonesian noodles, asparagus risotto and cachapa were favorites. Service was perfect, thank you Coco! It was our first visit but we have already recommended Cocha to several friends and we look forward to going back.

Nobody even seated me. I was completely ignored by all four employees and after ten minutes of waiting I finally gave up and went someplace else.

Great server, online menu was slightly different from actual menu so I didn’t get an entree because I had my heart set on a particular item. Overall, great place, might come back for dinner.

Cocha is a little gem of gastronomy in Baton Rouge! I am a vegan and my spouse is an omnivore. We were both equally delighted with the food and the friendly staff.

We love this place - great vibe and food was fresh and amazing. Drinks were a little slow, but it was packed in there. That was the only suggestion I would make - need another bartender

If I could give them 100 stars ✨ I would! The manager and our waiter went ABOVE AND BEYOND to make my birthday a special event! They set us up in a semi-private area and did a fun wine tasting/ pairing with our appetizers and salads (which Juan, our waiter, picked out especially for us)! His knowledge of pairing was absolutely wonderful and his attentiveness was top notch. ALL of the dishes we had were fantastic and tasty and different than the usual stuff that every restaurant has! At cocha, all you have to do is ask and they will try to make it happen for you ❤️
We were there quite late past closing but we were not once rushed out and we were send on our way with smiles and happiness.

Amazing food as always! Everything from the salmon belly tartar to the soup of the day to the Indonesian stir fry noodles with shrimp were fantastic. The dessert for the night was an amazingly light cheesecake with passion fruit on top. Absolutely fantastic! Even better than the food though is the service. Juan, who we have had as our server several other times, truly makes the dining experience. He even remembered the last wine we had (which was a great wine) even though it had been at least 1 month since our last trip to Cocha. Without a doubt, one of the best places to eat in BR.

We were just passing through town and looking for dinner somewhere close to our hotel. I did not realize it was more of upscale restaurant. We had 2 toddlers with us. But our server was very accommodating and we had a great meal and time. We ordered the charcuterie board for the kids which they loved! And the server even brought out some extra pear slices for them too. I had the grilled octopus and it was amazing. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone passing thru Baton Rouge.

We went there for my son’s 21’s birthday. He chose Cocha for the culinary menu options and it did not disappoint! We started out with the wine and cheese plate and mushroom and artichoke arancini
Both were amazing. Both my son’s had the octopus and they loved it. My husband and I shared the quail and beet salad. Both dishes were equally delicious!

The service was very personable. Juan was our waiter and made us feel like we were the only ones dining in the room. We told him it was our son’s birthday and he brought us a complimentary dessert from the chef.
It was nothing like we had ever tasted. It was a layer of passion fruit gelee’ on top of a light mousse. So very flavorful and light.

We told everyone about our wonderful experience and food at Cocha. Can’t wait to go back again.

The dining area was hopping with people out on Friday night. Our waiter,Juan, was super busy and super accommodating of my gluten and dairy-free requests. He explained how each dish was prepared and made recommendations, keeping dairy on the side when needed. We chose to share the chicken wings, Moroccan meatballs and pork caspacha (?) small plates with a Cocha salad. It was all very good and a nice break from cooking all my meals fresh. He even gave us a taste of gluten and dairy free ice cream house made. Awesome! As an added bonus he also gave us recommendations of products to purchase to help stay gluten-free. Great experience ❤️
