We had an awesome evening! Food was delicious. Our waiter was probably the best waiter ever and I wish you would find him by our name and reservation and commend him! He was the perfect blend on professional and fun!

This was possibly the best dinner we have had in the Dayton area in a very long time . . . and we enjoy fine dining frequently. The waiter was pleasant and informing without hovering. Food was fabulous and we even enjoyed portions of the entree the next day. We shall return very soon.

It has been a few years since we have been to Coco's Bistro. The food and value have slipped some.
We ate out on the patio which was delightful - perfect evening for eating out. As a person loves dessert and at $8.00, I expected a fresher lemon tart it tasted as if it had been prepared several days ago.

Food was extraordinary. I had the mushroom ravioli and the roasted brie. Service was top notch and the room was very warm and inviting. The owner (Karen) even checked in to see how everything was. I felt very spoiled.

Coco's has become our favorite restaurant, from the minute you walk in and meet Michael to the excellent service at the tables and bar. When we have guests coming in to town this is where we go! Whether it's cocktails and appetizers or a full meal, this is where you find interesting delicious options.

Was disappointed as the online menu did not match the restaurant menu. Was really hoping for the duck! Waiter did not spend much time with us, nor did he check up on us but once. Was really hard to get refills on our drinks.

We get to Dayton for a few days at least once a year, and always go to Coco's at least twice during our visit. The food, wine list, ambience and service make it Dayton's best restaurant.

Most recently we ordered the beet salad with goat cheese, which lists 1000 island for the dressing. As that seemed an odd pairing, we were going to request a different dressing. However, our waiter explained that the "1000 island" is beet based and quite good; if we didn't like it, he would bring us another. We are so glad we followed his recommendation! The dressing is delicious and a perfect match with the salad.

This level of service excellence typifies Coco's. The menu is varied for all tastes (including my pescatarian husband), the wine list is reasonable with good choices, and the ambience is perfect for both a quiet night out or celebration.

I have gotten the Bourbon shrimp salad three times in the last 2 years and every time it is excellent. Perfect sweet salad. Enjoyed a glass of delicious Jelly Jar red blend suggested by our waiter.

The food was great. We 7 all ordered different meals and I am writing this a few weeks later so unfortunately I cannot comment on specific dishes but everyone loved their food and desserts. The service was outstanding. The atmosphere is classy and décor is beautiful. I set up the reservation kind of late for graduation weekend so it was a very late hour originally. The day before, I called and the woman who helped was so nice about accommodating us earlier. That is what I will mostly remember, as it was a very special weekend and I wanted a really nice dinner together for my family (but not so late).

.In years past we have enjoyed going to Coco's for special occasions: our anniversary, Valentine's Day, our birthdays, granddaughter's graduation from Xavier, etc. On May 10 we were there to celebrate my 73rd birthday. Our bill came to $146.00 and the meal was mediocre. We had the fried brie (which was good, but the toast pieces were dried and overtoasted) halibut special, but it did not taste so special. My husband had a Caesar's salad and I had chosen the house salad, but asked to switch to a creamy dressing. I had to send my salad back because there was a vinegarette(sp?) taste and my stomach cannot handle vinegar dressings. It tasted as if the regular dressing was put on it and then a creamy dressing was put over it. Our server was very nice and eager to please however.

We did not feel that it was as nice an experience over all as it had been on previous occasions. We used to enjoy the uniqueness and eclectic menu. So we were underwhelmed this time.

Thanks for giving us the opportunity to comment.

Food was good, but my $38 filet was about 4 ounces. I’ve had better quality steaks for a cheaper price. Ordered the fried brie to start and it was very good, but could have been better. The brie wasn’t as runny and creamy as it should have been. House Manhattan was excellent.
