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.

I live in Fl and anytime I come home to visit I try to make it here to eat or just drink! The Vibe is very relaxed and the food is good!
But, I came here for my bday and it was duly noted in the reservation but no pleasantries were offered at arrival nor once seated! Now, I have had dinner at Nobu in Vegas 2days after my bday and received many pleasantries and a fabulous desert. This was a 1st at any restaurant I've ever been too. I wasn't mad just disappointed that I flew from FL to enjoy a Special meal with a friend and the restaurant couldn't be bothered to celebrate their guest! You deserve a good review based off the food, drinks, and some servers but that is all! Love love

We made a reservation for 4, Sat 22 August 20.When we arrived with our children,(that go to nice restaurants all the time, that are extremely well acquainted with high expectations of the norms at finer dining, and been going with us to them since they were 12 months old.)we were seated in a place with high traffic(COVID 6ft rule need not apply for us at this table)that was the most undesirable in the whole restaurant, while there was plenty of seating that had much less traffic. Ok, no big deal. When our waitress came it seemed as if she were annoyed that she had kids at a table, which is another reason we could have been placed in the walkway, kids. We ordered drinks which took forever to get (2 lemonade, coke, glass of wine).Then we ordered, and when we did one of our children changed his mind while we were ordering, and you would have thought we slapped this waitresses mom, she replied with a (sic) “should I just come back” literally after only 10 secs, maybe she was intoxicated in some way?Anyway, our app was great (the Brie), she forgot my wife’s Caesar salad, not a deal breaker, but more of a bummer. Then I had a coke that she filled with 3/4 ice, that I finished, she walked by it 7 times empty, absolutely ridiculous, I eventually asked, with another look that it looked like I asked her to bring me iceberg water. Then it took forever, I mean, forever, it was an hr and 15 minutes after we ordered, when I looked, and three tables sat after us had already received their meals, before I asked about ours.Our food came out looking like it sat under a heat lamp for an hr, the tortellini which is what my wife had (one of the most expensive entrees on the menu) came with some watery sauce, with no flavor inside the shells. If I wanted frozen tortellini I would have went to Kroger.Then my burger,which I ordered because I ordered because I figured an $18 burger would be delicious and original, was well past well done. check rest of review on yelp! Run from this place.

I cannot overstate how good Coco’s is. The food is outstanding in every conceivable way. Service is exceptional, with excellent pacing of dinner. The space is cool, quiet and elegant. I live in Atlanta and eat out regularly in NYC and New Orleans (back when that was normal) and Coco’s would be a standout in any of those towns. Highly recommended.

Clean! All staff were knowledgeable of the menu and didn’t mind questions. They’re descriptions of the food just wanted me to try almost everything! I will because the decor and ambiance were wonderful. Perfect socially distant. Liked that it had social justice organizations/causes on the menu. Food was AMAZING best salmon I’ve ever had! Enjoyed the upscale atmosphere but I felt welcome in my after yoga post workout attire. I will be a customer for life. Great first experience.

Tonight's dining was very pleasant. Our server, Tyler, was terrific. The food was excellent. Dessert was even better. The atmosphere was quiet. Still not many people out. Too bad for them. This was really good.

Food was very good. I got the seafood stew special that was tasty however a very small portion. Very little broth, 3 tiny mussels and 2 or 3 shrimp. For $26, I expected enough to fill me up. I rarely finish a meal and go away hungry. Thank goodness for the free bread. Husband had the not so deep dish pizza. Also good but not really deep dish. Cocktails, salads and service were excellent. I will come back just for the Caesar salad

Made our reservation for an outside table. We were seated right away. Sitting outside afforded a safe distance from other diners. The wait staff were very attentive, food came out quickly, ambience outside was great! Food was great as always - Highly recommend Coco's !

We ate on the patio for dinner and it was delightful. As always, the cocktails were perfectly mixed and our server was very helpful with our questions. The Coco’s bistro pizza is outstanding... we’ve returned twice in 2 weeks to eat it. 4 of the 6 of us had the Arctic Char dinner special with shishito peppers and peach salsa. Again, not a crumb was left behind. We also got the chocolate fritters with ice cream and there isn’t a more perfect way to end our evening.

The restaurant appears nice inside and out, fancy bistro vibes with a nice patio area for outdoor seating. The service was not great nor bad, filled our drinks and checked on us once; no serious conversation or personality presented. The menu seemed a bit pricy up front but with the ambiance we expected it to be worth it. The ravioli was decent at best and the flank steak was forgettable. Not impressed with either dish. The fried brie appetizer was the best part of the night (also seemingly overpriced). Made for a dull birthday dinner for my lovely lady and for that - I will not be returning. 3/5 at best

Had a wonderful evening with family at Coco’s. The food and drinks were tasty as always. I had the Thai Peanut which was very flavorful and had just enough spice to give it amazing flavor but not enough that I would need to cool my mouth with a drink. The staff were attentive and super friendly too. One of my favorite restaurants continues to impress.

We were glad to see that Coco's was open again! If you are concerned with social distancing while dining out, Coco's takes that concern away. They have the tables spaced out well enough. We had family in town for the evening and it was their first time dining at Coco's. They were very impressed and hope to dine again when visiting next. Three of us ordered the Mahi, one ordered the Salmon. Both entrees are a not to miss!
