The atmosphere is elegant and sophisticated with wonderful food & service. Highly recommend! It's the perfect place for a business lunch, with good spacing between tables. The service is always impeccable, and the food is delicious.

BEST grilled cheese and tomato bisque to be found in a 60 mile radius...or more! 5 dining guests and all 5 ordered the same thing! We requested dining on their patio. Even though it was quite chilly, the waiter was very kind, accommodating and kept lighting the patio heaters for us. One of the gems in the Gem City, for sure!

This wasn't our first time eating at Coco's. We usually have no complaints but there were a few small issues this time. The server took our dinner order and left before we could order a salad or appetizer. I'm surprised he didn't ask if we wanted any.

Until the end of our dinner the music was loud and was 80's techno music and bands like Devo and Talking Head. Not dinner music I would have chosen.

The food was delicious, as usual.

This restaurant always pleases the palate.. The menu is a bit limited due to Covid Issues but still has enough choices.
I felt the wine was a bit overpriced but otherwise the menu prices were quite reasonable
Will go back.

Hadn’t been to CoCo’s in over a year and my return trip did not disappoint. Due to COVID the restaurant was less crowded than it should have been but that worked well for us. I was pleasantly surprised to see that in my absence the interior had been redone and significantly brightened up...it looked wonderful and welcoming. We were seated right away and quickly greeted by our server who turned out to be wonderful. Didn’t linger but was there when needed - smart and charming guy. The cocktails as always were on point. And the food was superb! I had the chicken sandwich and DAMNNN was it good. New rating: Coco’s, Popeyes, Chik Fil A. My partners meal was outstanding as well (the burger). And for just for good measure we ordered the chocolate cherry torte which blew us away. Go to Coco’s you so t regret it!

Pretty disappointed with the meal overall. The Bistro burger was extremely salty and the Bouillabaisse was bland. So both of our entrees were on opposite ends of not being seasoned well. Not sure how this place justifies its high price point with food like that.

Coco’s patio is one of my favorite restaurants to have a business lunch but it’s also a perfect place to meet friends. You know the food is going to excellent and the menu has a wide array of entrees to please everyone. The noise level is low enough to carry on a conversation but with the distancing of tables knowing you won’t be overheard.

Salmon and fries - horrible entree..nothing upscale about it and it was $27😳. My husbands flank steak was very tough, too. We waited almost an hour for our entree and had to ask for refills on water. Our drinks from the bar were never refilled, or asked if we wanted another one. Menu right now is very limited and very few good choices. Our salad was minuscule and was $5! It fit on a saucer. We will not be back.

Had a reservation. We sat at our table for 2 hours and never got our dinner. We finally left without having eaten. I understand off nights but they did not communicate or handle the situation well.

Anniversary celebration during the pandemic, eat out on the patio, everyone was following safety protocols, staff was attentive. Food was excellent, good presentation, didn’t feel rushed. First dining out in 6 months but have done carry out. Have eaten at Cocos in the past and have had good experiences.

It was a great evening. The large doors were open, which was very nice. Just a cool breeze blowing thru the restaurant. The service was great. She didn't rush us after the meal. The food was amazing.

It was very nice to be eating out, and feeling very safe doing so.
