    What a wonderful surprise Cocoa's is. We ate there a lot about five years or so ago and now have come back twice in the last month. I swear it is the best food in Dayton. OMG...the pork shoulder was out of this world. I wanted to lick the plate. Their cocktails are also very different and delicious. Service was outstanding (and I wish I could remember her name because she was awesome. Dark-hair, pretty girl who was friendly and on point with her service. Cashing out was quick and easy. She was very attentive. Wish I lived close enough to come once a week. They are a little pricey but not completely outrageous.

    Had an 11:30 AM (CST) Lunch Reservation on Monday, November 7th. We were greeted warmly by the charming hostess and led to our prime table near a window with a scenic view of Warren. Lauren was quick to greet us, explain the menu, and recommend the best lunch selections. We appreciate the manner in which she continued to check on us throughout the lunch. Overall, the dining experience was outstanding. After lunch, we took a mini tour of the Bar and Courtyards.

    Relaxing atmosphere. We have never been rushed thru our dining experience at Coco's. We have had the same server the last few times we have been in and she is very attentive and knowledgeable. Always delicious food. Very creative menu. Nice group of wines that compliment each entree. This restaurant checks all the boxes!

    Food was great…wait staff was average. Highly recommend visiting on a non weekend night. Seems that they are suffering from wait staff shortages. Main dining room was short staffed and lacked proper attention due to the two large private parties they had going on simultaneously.

    Absolutely awesome venue! Staff and ambiance was fantastic! The food was terrific, sadly I would have liked a few more shrimp on my salad. 5 on a $18 salad seemed a bit skimpy. The salad was terrific, just needed a couple more shrimp! Otherwise ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ We’ll be back!!

    I would say that the nicest part about dining at Coco’s was the ambiance. Everything was cooked well but lacked a bit of salt and the value was a bit more pricey that it was worth. Our server was very kind but did seem to lack a full grasp of the menu. Her drink recommendations, however, were excellent. Not necessarily somewhere that I would recommend but it wasn’t bad. Overall experience would be a 7/10

    The food was delicious and our server polite and low key. My only concern was the hostess…when I arrived, she was missing, then showed up looking like I was inconveniencing her. She led me to a table that was near other tables, which is fine, but when I kindly asked if I could sit at a table off to the side, which was a bit quieter. she threw her hands up and rolled her eyes, as if I had insulted her. It was very strange as I’ve never seen that done before. Not the usual warm welcome that guests celebrating a birthday usually receive. Perhaps some extra training would be helpful?

    I have not been here since the pandemic but WOW. The place is beautifully remodeled and the food is spectacular and reasonably priced. Service was excellent. I cannot say enough about the food - shear perfection. My only "slight" complaint was in regard to the dessert. Panacotta is one of my favorite deserts and I make it (tedious process so not often). I ordered the panacotta with the marshmallow whip and the taste was awesome - not too sweet and the chocolate had the perfect amount of sweetness and bitterness and the marshmallow whip added more sweetness which was great. However, the consistency of the panacotta indicated that it was a little overcooked and had been in the refrigerator too long and was not really fresh. It had a rubbery consistency. That aside, great experience and we will be back.

    We use to love this place but this will be the last time we go there. Food was just ok, atmosphere was straight weird. It looked like you walked into a hospital with all the white. Service was ok. Servers were kind of snooty. Drinks were good but $14 each. This place has went downhill quick. We won’t return.
