Food was very good. Small menu but options for most anyone. Shares the downstairs bathroom with Sweetwater so it's like going to the club if you need the facilities.

One observation I made was that the wait staff didn't seem happy and certainly not very friendly. Host was nice when greeting us, then spent the rest of the time talking to friends at the bar. Wait staff was slow, not personable and all carried an expressionless look. Kind of strange actually.

Very casual spot that we liked. The food was excellent but the menu was a little limited. If you want atmosphere, go to another spot...good food and good service? Go to Coco and Cru

Bathroom was absolutely filthy...someone had thrown up and it was not cleaned...reeked everywhere. Sink area very unsanitary, too.

I for a chicken Caesar salad...little too much dressing. Service ok, had to ask for a few things at different points.

Went there for brunch. Decent food but very noisy because of the amount of tables in a small space. The tables are pretty much touching so get ready to apologize to the people next to you for the occasional elbow hit. Pouched eggs were overcooked. Service was great though which helped get them get the extra star.

Out shopping on Black Friday picking up some goods ordered on line. Feeling hungry and looking for a place to eat. Right next to us was Coco. We looked it up on OpenTable. Saw we good get a table right away and walked in. Food was very good. But our server and the rest of the staff really made the experience excellent. She was friendly, funny and spot on with everything. I will definitely come back next time I am in the neighborhood

The "PAT LAFRIEDA “CORNER SHOP” BURGER" was phenomenal. We weren't sure we were going to stay because timing of our guest but it all worked out and staff so accommodation. It's a small place and can be loud but we were able to a quiet conversation between the 4 of us.

Quinoa crusted tuna was absolutely delicious. Serve was incredible because the waiter was personable and fun. Drinks were slurped in seconds. A little pricey for every night but worth it.

The food is good. Conversation is impossible. The noise level is driven primarily by very loud, frenetic music, which meant you have had to shout your food orders to the waiter, and the four of us left with ears ringing and headaches. The malt vinegar which was to accompany my fish and chips was missing. It took several attempts to communicate with the wait staff that I wanted malt because although I spoke loudly, I was not heard. When "background" music interferes with efficient service, and the pleasure of talking while enjoying a meal, that restaurant will not get a another visit, despite the food.

The service was mediocre, my friend had to send back her reheated and tasteless brussel sprouts, the music was way to loud especially as the restaurant cleared. My cobb salad was ok, it needed romaine lettuce as the egg, bacon, blue cheese kind of wilted the soft greens.

If you're looking for a good casual place, Coco & Cru is it. It's more diner than fine dining, but the food was well above par and the service very good. Prices were excellent for this neighborhood.

We went here for brunch and were not disappointed by the menu or the food. Everything was fresh and delicious. But the noise level was untenable. I could not hear my husband who sat directly across the table from me. We ended up eating very quickly so we could escape the din. Granted, it’s a small space, but even so, it seemed Ill-designed to accommodate a lot of people at peak times. Unfortunately it made for an unpleasant dining experience and I don’t think I would go back unless they did something to improve the acoustics in there.

This place was just okay. The music was loud and unpleasant at a crowded Saturday brunch, where I and my date had to shout to hear each other. The restaurant is casual, packed with NYU students. The menu was appealing but neither of our meals actually tasted any better than average. The service was rushed and the person serving us needed to be asked to serve the coffee and croissant we had ordered. With tip, all of this cost over $60 for an experience that wasn't especially pleasant.

Nice food and great service but at $6 for a tiny Cappacino which apparently was the biggest they had - not worth going. Guess I was comparing to cafes back in Aus but would not recommend.

The food tasted great! The fries are unbeatable!! We were seated right away according to my reservation time. I was a bit disappointed in how long it took for food to come out and the attentativeness of the staff. The music was a bit loud and I felt like I had to really project my voice across the table to speak to my friend. The table was wobbly. Originally, my reservation was marked absent with OpenTable requiring me to follow up to assure it was corrected which was annoying.
