Ordered Squash Pizza and Pork Belly apps. Hazelnut cake for desert
Pizza was bland and weird
Pork Belly was kinda gross
Cake was the bomb
Wine was good, mixed drink was good, service was good

We went during the week on a Thursday evening, the atmosphere and service were great but the food was not worth the $50 bill. Soggy pizza that was not even warm when served.

Garbage. 2nd time there and never going back. All three of our menus has dried food on them. I ordered the pork shoulder, as I did on my previous visit (I raved about the food in my previous review), however this time it was dry, and the vegetables undercooked. We ordered the ahi poke, as we did last time, and it had so much garlic it was inedible. I expect consistency at these prices. I’m done here.

It was our first time at Coco's since they have a new chef and we were very pleased with our dinner.

Both the scampi and the duck ragu were excellent. The service very attentive. Will be back soon in spite of the noise level. There were several big tables and it was difficult not to hear their conversations.

You have some service issues. Plates being delivered with knife in the same hand. Server seemed extremely rushed which led us to feel rushed.

The food for two of the 4 persons at our table came out about 5 minutes before the other two dinners. We were not given an explanation for the delay. Our waiter did offer to buy dessert due to the delay. The food, chicken, pork loin, and salmon, was delicious. The bread, as always, was very good.

I made this reservation for my husband, son and some business people he wanted to have dinner with while in OH. His guests said they live within 30 minutes of the restaurant and can’t wait to go back and recommend it to their family.
My husband and son had an amazing gluten free dinner. They loved everything about the restaurant.

My boyfriend and I visited this restaurant for date night and it was absolutely fantastic, the waited was very nice and attentive, the ambiance was quiet but not too quiet where you felt awkward talking. Would definitely visit here again in the future!

Parents weekend. Overbooked. Food was fabulous BUT Waited 1/2 hr to be seated for an 8 pm reservation. Waited 10-15 min until server came to table Was rushing everywhere So overbooked with large parties that wait staff and especially kitchen couldn’t handle We Didn’t receive our entrees until 10:30. Had very simple dinners. Shouldn’t have take that long. Server was apologetic and served complimentary glass of wine .We left large tip because it wasn’t servers fault. Next parent weekend shouldn’t take on so many large parties
Normally we prefer this restaurant and the food is great Last year we had a long wait as well but not as bad as this

We had a lovely dinner at Coco’s Bistro while we were visiting Dayton. We began with craft cocktails in the bar before being seated at a table off to the side. The food was amazing. We began with goat cheese and accompaniments for an appetizer and then had a wonderful dinner. My bourbon seafood salad was excellent as was my husband’s ahi tuna. Our server was helpful and there to answer any of our questions. We would certainly recommend Coco’s Bistro

The service was excellent; attentive - even to a candle on my bread pudding (it was my birthday!!) and very thoughtful, particularly in dealing with my 10-year-old granddaughter. The food was good, but I found my steak frites a bit over spiced and too salty. Overall, a very enjoyable evening-we will be back!

It would be nice to have half the salad size available. I order the Bourbon St. Salad and it is too much for me to eat due to a medicine I am taking. I feel as though I waste half the salad. Its amazing but I can't eat that many greens.

I like Coco's and would recommend it, but I don't consider it a very good value. Our server Anthony was very efficient and helpful, but my husband's filet was quite rare, not medium rare. At $36, his meal didn't include a salad and the sides were small. I got a lot of very tasty fries with my flank steak, which was cooked correctly and at $27 it was a better value although again no salad and just the one vegetable.
