    Wonderful ambience and the menu was inviting. Drinks were very good - especially the elderberry vodka cocktail. The waiter Brendan was friendly and engaging. A great start but it went down hill from there. The short ribs were nothing but fat - the flavor was good, but not even a bite of meat. My wife ordered a beet salad with salmon. The salmon was barely cooked. The waiter immediately agreed and offered to bring out another piece of salmon. At the same time, I ordered another beer. Twenty minutes later and no salmon and finally my beer. We told the waiter we couldn't wait any longer for the salmon. The waiter indicated there was a "situation" in the kitchen. He took my wife's salad/salmon and my second beer off the bill and gave us a free dessert. Brendan did the best he could. However, it was clear he had too many tables. We could tell he's a great server but couldn't provide reasonable service. It was our first time to Coco's and we had high hopes. We were disappointed. The place seems to have a lot going for it, so we chalked it up to the restaurant having a bad night due to an issue in the kitchen and probably short-staffed front of the house

    Food was excellent. I had their signature grilled cheese sandwich and tomato bisque, which was great. My guest had the risotto, which they thoroughly enjoyed. Server was very friendly and helpful. The food came quickly. This a great place for a business lunch. The restaurant has a nice upscale atmosphere and is quiet enough to allow for easy conversation.

    We were a group of longtime friends meeting for lunch. The restaurant gladly accommodated a change in the reservation from 5 to 7 people and placed us in a smaller private dining room. Our server, Dominic, was excellent. He was patient about taking orders (we had a lot of catching up to do). He checked on us without interrupting or hovering. The food was excellent.

    Coco’s NEVER disappoints. Karen - the owner - has impeccable taste for her rotating menu and her staff is the cream of the crop. Hands down one of the best (if not THE best) dining experience in Dayton.

    We had New Year’s Eve dinner there and it was great. Jason was very attentive but not intrusive. He was very busy but kept up with our orders and didn’t rush us. Both of our dinners were very well done and delicious. We always have enjoyed Coco’s and will continue to go back. Shout out to Jason for providing excellent service.

    Went here for a celebration with my family and it was a great choice! We collectively got the Caesar salad, the birdie, and salmon frites and everything was amazing!! The fries are delicious! We also ordered the spinach artichoke dip as an app and it was warmly and so lovely! Even as more people kept coming in it didn’t seem very loud at all and we could talk normally without any distractions. Truly enjoyed our server as well!! I would 100% recommend as we truly enjoyed everything and the food was delicious!

    My husband and I split the beet salad and then each had the shrimp fettucine. Both were very, very good. The waitress wasn't sure what wine I might like so she brought me two tastes of wine that I might like. That was special and I got what I wanted.
