The place was so nice and the ambiance and lighting was just right for a nice date . The food was really good . I’m happy about that . Most times I have to add seasoning to dishes. Waiter was pretty awesome with recommendations . I loved it

First time ever I have had to send food back. Pork was all fat and no meat. Server was terrific. I hope this doesn’t have anything to do with the supply chain and shortages.

The food was great! We got the fried mushrooms, burger and salmon. For desert we got the chocolate tart. Everything tasted fresh and was cooked to perfection. The salmon was tender inside and nicely charred on the outside. The chimichuri and aioli sauce added a beautiful flavor. My wife loved the ambience and decor. It was a lovely dinner all around.

Our experience tonight was consistent with every experience at Coco’s since they opened: amazing food and flavors; excellent customer service and a wonderful ambiance.
We are regulars and we love the owners for their commitment to the community and to their customers!

Easy in and out access with parking on either side of the restaurant. No steps, all one level. I always order the Bourbon street salad when I go there for lunch. Didn't disappoint this time either. 4 others at the Tae also ordered, and enjoyed, the same. Someone else got the Thai peanut and said it was just as good. Service grand. I like that they leave a carafe of water on the table and keep an eye on it to replenish as necessary. Don't have anything bad to say. Pleasurable experience and will be back.

Somewhat uneven experience drinks and dessert with both fantastic our main courses were okay. My steak was almost medium well when I ordered medium rare and for the price I felt like the portion on the steak was tiny. My partner's entree was very generously portioned but did not have a ton of depth of flavor

For a Christmas celebration, I wanted to take my staff to a very nice restaurant. Two of the staff members had never been to Coco Bistro nor had they ridden the New Flyer bus from downtown to the restaurant so this was the perfect choice. Everyone was very pleased.

Service was real slow! We sat for nearly 10 minutes before wait staff approached our table and waited another 15 minutes for our drinks. No bread was offered and we had to ask for it. Food was good but not good enough to order it again.

What a perfect birthday lunch with my sister & our dad. Our server was excellent and our lunches were delicious. We decide to indulge ourselves by ordering dessert. As expected, we were not disappointed. We each ordered something different so we could share & care! Mmmm!
Thank you for your hospitality on a very special day!

Our waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable. He recommended an excellent wine when my preferred white (Sauvignon Blanc), was not on offer.

The pork loin special was also superb.

Food and service were great. Wine list was good, but limited. Ambience could be better in the main dining area. Maybe tone down the light a bit and replace the white table clothes with black?? Bar area seemed more fitting. Either way - I'll be back!!

First visit. But not our last! Perhaps the best cocktails in Dayton. And the food is excellent! We just had drinks and apps, with dessert (melt in your mouth, awesome Panna Cotta). The vibe is great. Casual, but nice enough for important dates and events as well. Easily top 5 in Dayton for places to eat/drink
