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.

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.

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.

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.
