Excellent location to go on a date. I enjoyed their specialty cocktails such as the dad bod. Food was great and cooked to perfection. The sever was very attentive and provided solid recommendations. I’ll definitely come back and try some more items on the menu!

Somewhat uneven experience drinks and dessert with both fantastic our main courses were okay. My steak was almost medium well when I ordered medium rare and for the price I felt like the portion on the steak was tiny. My partner's entree was very generously portioned but did not have a ton of depth of flavor

For a Christmas celebration, I wanted to take my staff to a very nice restaurant. Two of the staff members had never been to Coco Bistro nor had they ridden the New Flyer bus from downtown to the restaurant so this was the perfect choice. Everyone was very pleased.

Service was real slow! We sat for nearly 10 minutes before wait staff approached our table and waited another 15 minutes for our drinks. No bread was offered and we had to ask for it. Food was good but not good enough to order it again.

What a perfect birthday lunch with my sister & our dad. Our server was excellent and our lunches were delicious. We decide to indulge ourselves by ordering dessert. As expected, we were not disappointed. We each ordered something different so we could share & care! Mmmm!
Thank you for your hospitality on a very special day!

Our server, Tyler was awesome. His friendliness and timely attentiveness to our table was very much appreciated. Everything was wonderful. The food was delicious. My husband had the burger, I inhaled the Red Trout (lol) and our friend loved the steak. So so good.

Our waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable. He recommended an excellent wine when my preferred white (Sauvignon Blanc), was not on offer.

The pork loin special was also superb.

Food and service were great. Wine list was good, but limited. Ambience could be better in the main dining area. Maybe tone down the light a bit and replace the white table clothes with black?? Bar area seemed more fitting. Either way - I'll be back!!

First visit. But not our last! Perhaps the best cocktails in Dayton. And the food is excellent! We just had drinks and apps, with dessert (melt in your mouth, awesome Panna Cotta). The vibe is great. Casual, but nice enough for important dates and events as well. Easily top 5 in Dayton for places to eat/drink

Very good, but not great. Busier than expected for an early Tuesday evening. The food was very good, but not quite outstanding. Our pork shoulder was tender and delicious, but a little too fatty. The salads were tasty. The interior of the restaurant was solid white without much design interest. Our server was friendly and efficient.

Food was good but over priced for quality. We saw the menu both on web and on OpenTable but sat down and was completely different, very disappointing. I had the steak, the most expensive entrée on menu but was actually 4oz of steak pre sliced! It was dry and way over priced. Apps and dessert were both great though. The service was slow but not the waiters fault, he was as attentive as he could be bc they had 2 servers for entire restaurant on a Saturday night. Meal all in all was ok but way over priced for quality. Have been in the past and was much better.

Coco's ambience is friendly and inviting, yet elegant, the menu choices are pleasingly diverse and almost guarantee a return visit to try something not chosen for this meal. The red trout with white beans was delicious, perfectly cooked and attractively presented, but the pork roast with greens cheesy polenta was even better, savory tastes combined with pleasing texture diversity. We plan to return soon!
