We arrived a few minutes late, but still sat us even though the restaurant was extremely busy.
I had the pork chop, it was tender and delicious. My husband had the chicken Marsala which he also enjoyed. Thursday nights the restaurant offers half off all their bottles of wine, which made for an even nicer meal.

Very nice restaurant. I often take out of town guests here. Local, nice atmosphere, and I've always had a good experience. Menu is a little limited for main dishes, but with sandwiches, pizza, big entree salads there is a good variety.

Seated us at the time requested. Waiter service was excellent. Food was very good but portion size was a little on the small side. Some folks might consider the menu a little over-priced for what you got.

Service was excellent. Glad we made a reservation with all the Christmas parties going on. Our waiter was friendly, outgoing and a great conversationalist. Had good recommendations for drink and food. Our food was hot and served in a timely manner. The Hummus appetizer was outstanding, had never had it with the chili seeds and honey before, could have had another plate. The Red Trout was excellent with it’s accompanying pancake. Everyone enjoyed their dinners: pasta, Pho, and Shrimp dish.
Our first time, it had been recommended by several workmates. They were right on the spot, Wonderful evening!

I am always a big fan of Coco's and enjoy their ambiance and food preparation. Pork chop was very tasty. My friend ordered the white pizza and it too was excellent. One disappointment, I wish their infamous grilled cheese & tomato soup would be available for an evening meal option.

The "gourmet" grilled cheese sandwhich with tomato bisque is downright yummy.
Ashley, our server, was attentive but not intrusive.
The fried spinach is to die for.
And, the fragrance of the blueberry tea was intoxicating.

Dinner before the show at the Schuster Center. Reservation was for 6 and we had plenty of time to make the show.

Excellent service, good wine selection and very nice meal. Coco's has become part of our theater nitte plans.

I found my meal to be okay--but just okay. The sauce for the chicken marsala was uninspired and bland. The salad was basically one type of greens, shredded carrots, and dressing. I did like the Old Fashioned cocktail, and the fresh, warm bread. This was my first time dining there, and based on the reputation, I expected a better meal and more inspired taste and presentation, especially at $30 or so a plate.

Food was extremely tasty and well prepared, but issues in the kitchen had us waiting FOREVER for both our appetizers and entress--so much so that the apologetic waiter comped our app and a glass of wine in hopes that we'd give them another try. Food prices are a bit on the high end for what you do ultimately receive, but the quality supercedes the quantity. Go for a great meal that leaves you satisfied but not over stuffed. We will try again (if I can convince my spouse!)

My husband and I went to Coco’s for dinner, an easy reservation made on my favorite App (Open Table, of course!) We celebrated our five years of marriage over a bottle of good wine and food that was phenomenal. Moreover, a very kind and very attractive server (Adam) was always at our table at the right moment, was so incredibly sweet and had a real interest in making our night so special. He even comp’d our dessert in honor of our anniversary. Overall, this was a prototypical fine dining experience and a perfect evening for us. Thank you so very much!

One of the best restaurants in Dayton that I have been to. The bread and butter were fantastic and I could not stop eating it. Service was very friendly and it was really nice to be able to make reservations online. Food came out quick and was so delicious. A bit pricey but well worth the money. Came to celebrate an anniversary and we both left very satisfied.

The pork was thick, juicy, full of flavor with each bite, a bit embarrassed that I ate the whole piece, it was big!

Go and enjoy!
