    The mother's day brunch was awesome. The restaurant was out of quantity for dessert, but they accommodated us with dessert from different dessert groups on the menu so that we could experience all of the the desserts that were offered for brunch. Wonderful!

    Disappointed in the Mother’s Day brunch menu. We had 2 vegetarians and not one option available. We were not told when making reservations that the menu was limited and no vegetarian options. Server was less than helpful when we inquired about options. There have always been good non- meat options on the menu here but were extremely disappointed this visit and will likely not return.

    As always, we had a good experience at Coco’s. Service was great, as was the food. The only negative is the fact you can’t make a reservation for parties over 6 and getting them to call you back to do so after leaving them a voicemail seems to be difficult.

    Our server was the only good part of our meal. The food was not very good for the prices we paid. The clarified milk punch drink was great! It was incredibly loud upon entry (not because of patrons but purely because of the music!) and I needed to use earplugs for the duration of the meal ( I have autism and sensory sensitivity is something I struggle with). Some of the waiters wandered the restaurant playing on their phones, there was a patron that got up to yell they were gonna go to the bar, and our waiter had to check each plate they gave us to make sure it wasn't dirty, giving the impression not of fine dining, but of a chain restaurant or fast food, and our food came out wrong (not a big deal but when youre paying 70+ dollars for a dinner, I'd expect to have the one special request (no croutons!) understood!) We were sat in the middle of the restaurant despite ample seating around the edges which felt weird - no one likes having their back to 20+ people! In general we were hoping for fine dining - professional service, interesting and well-prepared flavors, and clean and calm surroundings, and we didn't come away feeling we got what we paid for.

    The food waws excellent, but this time service was a bit slower than I have experienced in the past. They seemed to be a little understaffed for the number of customers. My guest and I both had the Bourbon Street salad and it was excellent as usual

    I'm not sure if it was because we were the only young people in the restaurant or if it was obvious we weren't regulars at the establishment but our waiter gave us the worst service I have ever experienced. For 50 minutes after we ordered, the server walked around our table intentionally not making eye contact. We were left there with water and nothing else. When I finally got his attention he didn't apologize but simply said they were busy and the appetizer would be out ion 5 mins. We asked for our meals to come out and he never came back to check that we were okay so I asked for the check and we left.

    We went for Easter brunch — it was a flat $30 with a choice of approx 5 main items — a desert — juice — the food wasn’t bad but definitely not worth the cost! The service was okay — not great — the mimosa were $11 — way over priced for what we got — won’t be going back

    We love Coco's Bistro. We had a business dinner there and everything was pretty good. We were a bit disappointed in the service being slow. It was not that busy but twice we had to get up and ask for our waiter. I feel like since the gratuity was automatically included with the larger party our waiter was not as attentive. Also, the music piping in over our table was loud. I asked if it could be turned down but it wasn't and it hindered conversation. The food and drinks were very good.

    Food was really mediocre. I wouldn't say it was bad, but for the price you would expect better quality and taste. Hate how the menu is set up, just a giant block of text was horrible to look up on. Service was great, Jason did a stand up job! Music is not the vibe, had me ready to fall asleep, also did not match the atmosphere. With the amount of alcohol on the menu the place was too bright and the music way off. Food was the most disappointing feature, bland flavorless meal, big let down.

    Our server was very pleasant and helpful with the menu. But, overall, service was slow. I don't mind waiting a little if I have a drink and/or bread, but it took a long time to place the order, a long time for the drinks to arrive, and even longer for the bread. Not sure if this was because our server had too many tables or the problem was with the kitchen. He certainly was busy, as were all the servers. (I pitied the one person who was having to serve the party room. She needed roller skates.) Food varied. We loved the elderberry gimlet--so good. The short ribs and their sauce were tender and delicious, but the green beans were basically raw, and the strong horseradish in the potatoes would not appeal to everyone (unless you like mixing the potatoes with the meat.) The mushroom risotto would have been better with some seasoning. The apple galette was hot and very good.

    This was our second time to Coco’s for our anniversary. The atmosphere is nice, the service was great and the majority of our food was good. I didn’t have a great experience with the way my Sea Bass was cooked. I have contacted the restaurant directly about it. We will go back for another visit on a special occasion to see how it fares then. Overall, good place to check out if you haven’t already.

    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
