    This is my favorite restaurant in Baton Rouge. Every detail of everything you consume is produced thoughtfully and the result is an absolutely wonderful meal and dining experience. I wanted to order everything. We started with the beef cheeks starter and scallop starter, both were so intricately flavored, well put together, and well prepared that I can’t include all the details here. Then the okra and fennel soup was perfect though not at all what I expected (even better). I had the Elk and my dining partner had the octopus, both were outstanding. Then the panecotta(sp?) for dessert with an espresso shot and, again, wonderful. Excellent & colorful service from Bert as well.

    Went to Cocha for Saturday brunch, as we’ve just moved downtown. Unfortunately, the brunch menu was considerably different from the dinner menu. The atmosphere was nice enough, although in no way does it stand out. The service was quite attentive and helpful. Cocktails were good, and the wine menu was quite extensive for a small restaurant. We had several dishes, some were delicious, and others were rather uninspired. Overall, we enjoyed the meal, and will definitely be back for dinner.

    Food was delicious: from appetizers to desert. The only surprise was price of added proteins to main course from "The Garden" section as it was more expensive than actual dish :) So just ask price (if you care) before ordering. Highly recommend this place.

    We chose Cocha because we were celebrating our daughters birthday. The food was superb and our waiter was even better. Can’t say enough about Juan except he was the best waiter we have ever had, at any restaurant we have ever been to! You could tell he loved food and introducing the menu to his guests. He was very enthusiastic explaining in detail the cuisine offered at the restaurant. We were undecided about which wine to order and he allowed us to try a few different samples. You could tell he treated the guests at each table with the same kind of attentiveness. We noticed another man who seemed to be the owner or manager and was impressed how genuinely friendly he was as he checked on tables and sat with friends. I look forward to returning to Cocha and highly recommend it for wonderful food and service!

    Me and my friend are traveling for work and found this restaurant, so happy we chose it. Our server was amazing, made great recommendations, we of course ordered them immediately. Very fresh fish, great flavor, great food presentation. We loved the tartare with plantains, and the halibut special of the day. Lovely spot.

    This was our second time dining at Cocha. Both times were great, but Juan made this recent experience exceptional. He went above and beyond, providing recommendations and always making sure we were well taken care of. Cocha's "from the garden" menu selections are outstanding. Highly recommend visiting Cocha!

    Just GO! If you enjoy incredible, attentive service and deliciously innovative food, then do yourself a favor and head to Cocha. Tried it for the first time yesterday and am already hoping for a chance to go back. If I lived in BTR, I am pretty sure I would be a regular. Try the cachapas!

    Sat at the bar and had great cocktails, then sat down at our table for a first class meal. Had the scallop appetizer to start, my date had the vegetable lasagna, and I had an off menu special of Elk. We also had an amazing bottle of chateauneuf du pape. For dessert, we had the tres leches and the panna cotta. A truly perfect experience.

    Cocoa is probably our favorite restaurant in Baton Rougw. We love trying things we've never had before, as well as familiar foods prepared in different ways, and we know everything that comes out of Cocha's kitchen is exceptionally well prepared. We've returned often, and will continue to do so.
