Food was delicious. Indonesian stir fry noodles so good. Shrimp and scallops excellent. Best seared sea scallops I have ever had. I was not sure about ordering because came in a broth but was better than imagined. Service was on point. Everyone very friendly and helpful. Atmosphere quaint yet exciting and fun.

Great service and atmosphere. Also—Don’t look any further than the curry! It was AMAZING and full of so many flavors. My husband and I both agreed it’s one of the best dishes we have ever eaten. We added chicken for some extra protein, but not necessarily needed. I also enjoyed the dairy-free chocolate ice cream. Smooth, creamy, decadent! 10/10 recommend! This is our new favorite date night spot!

Great food, great service. Really appreciated the time the waiter staff spent with us to discuss the menu and the great advice on the wine paring. We enjoyed sitting outside with the heater. May be my new favorite spot in Baton Rouge. We will definitely be visiting again. multiple times.

New Year’s Eve celebration of 6 courses. Courses were Michelin star quality - we are Blessed to have eaten at numerous Michelin restaurants around the world. From our perspective, Cocha’s is a cut above any restaurant in Baton Rouge.

The food and service were outstanding. Absolutely no issues there.
My only “issue” was I thought the chairs were a little uncomfortable. However, that won’t stop us from returning.

The owner was so kind. I had a wreck out front. She brought waters to all of us, held our table and was hospitable and kind. You really get the feeling the restaurant is an extension of her and her husband. Our food was delicious and fresh! I’ll be back again for sure!

Menu is interesting and creative. Bartender was helpful. We enjoyed our food but our waiter was less than attentive and somewhat awkward making for a longer dining experience than expected. We dined on the patio which was lovely until the table next to us began to smoke, causing us to end our night one course and one round of drinks earlier than planned.

This is as our second time to dine at Cocha. It is such a beautiful & unique restaurant in the downtown area.
Definitely a “hidden gem” of Baton Rouge.
The food as well as the service are always exceptional.
Look forward to our next dining experience with Cocha!

Made an OpenTable reservation for myself at the bar. When I arrived, no seats at the bar which didn't start my experience off on the right foot. Once seated at an undesirable table a bar seat opened so I moved. Service at the bar was okay, might have had better service at the table. For dinner I started out with the arancini which was delicious, crispy and had a great horseradish creme sauce. For my entree I had the noodle stir fry. Nice portion, but could have had more veggies, less noodles and sauce. Overall had some great veggie options but they are lacking in execution and service. Blame Covid for being short staffed and not having all wines on the menu. Two glasses of wine, one cocktail, one app and one entree for $61 plus tip. Overpriced dinner, spotty service to sum it up.

We had a late lunch so the restaurant wasn't too crowded. Having just flown into town, this was our first time to eat at Cocha and we were not disappointed. We wanted a light lunch and our server made good recommendations for both food and wine. I had a 1/2 salad with medium rare salmon that was cooked to perfection. The hubs had the pork belly sliders that he gave two thumbs up. Both were paired with a nice wine, neither of which were on the menu. We will definitely be back to Cocha on future visits.
