    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?

    First visit for my husband and he loved it !! He was concerned about portion size because he’s a hearty eater. But the half smoked chicken entree was plenty.

    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.

    The shrimp scampi was one of the best I have ever had. It's one of their signature dishes. Lots of shrimp, pasta was locally made and great sauce. Highly recommend. Great wine list.

    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.

    Maybe the best meals we've had at Coco's over the years. And the seasonal creamed corn was amazing, our server Rose was not exaggerating! She was also helpful in offering a taste of the wine by the glass I requested to prevent me making an error in the pairing with my salmon, and she was correct again.

    We enjoyed the lemon curd with shrimp cocktail instead of traditional red cocktail sauce- very unique and refreshing. We commented that we could enjoy our time, visit quietly without competing with the noise of other diners and loud music. Our server always there when needed but did not hover or interrupt us. Excellent experience.
