Cocotte is a South-West French rooted restaurant with accents from the Basque Country. The fusion of the strong basque identity with the French “savoir-faire” has made the South-West of France a gastronomique terroir and way of life both for food and wine for centuries in their most natural and simple ways. Cocotte’s goal is to bring this way of life to your table with carefully selected products on your plate, into your glass, and around you.

Lovely little neighborhood place that took me back in time - another time in NYC, feeling as if in Europe. Will go again soon!

Had Sunday brunch with 5 family members. Everyone thought their food was fabulous. Service was great too. We are all looking forward to a return visit for dinner to try a different menu.
On the pricier side but definitely worth it.

It continues to be my favorite restaurant in NYC - the food, the staff, the vibe, the room and the music are exactly what I want. It’s so different from the typical overpriced hyped up hot spot that fades after a year. A jewel box island of quality and sincerity in a sea of cynical mediocrity.

I don't want to give a good review because I don't want it hard to get a reservation! I love this place - I go for the filet all the time. Forget the fancy steakhouses - this steak is the best in the city.

We were welcomed warmly and seated immediately. It’s a small space with high noise level. Tables extremely close together. Menu has good variety and originality. Decided to skip an appetizer and added a shared side of Brussels sprouts to our mains instead. That was a mistake. Was still a bit hungry and wished I had tried an appetizer. Ordered a cheese plate to finish instead, and for cheese lovers, they have a nice selection.

Food was good .
We waited 1 hour for the main course.
I think they have to organize things in the kitchen a bit better.
I advised them thru OpenTable that it was my best friend birthday but they didn’t even put a candle on the dessert that I ordered.

Good and authentic French / Basque cuisine. Friendly service until we were kicked-out after less than two hours for Sunday brunch because they “need the table”. I complained on leaving to the waiter (in French). The response: “Sorry, that’s NY.” Sadly that IS NY: mercenary and anti-customer. Fine. I live in Paris. I just never want to be told again that we need to be learn what good service is from America.

The menu has Basque influences. The space is below street level with approximately 28 seats. Staff is French speaking. Service is casual and at times indifferent in the Parisian style. Table spacing is very close in some locations, and about 12 seats are at hi-tops. Noise level is loud. The sound track is fairly loud house music. Under 40s will find it hip, tasty and a good value. Over 40s may find it too loud and amateurish.

Really let down by this experience. The space was way smaller than pictures could show. The food lacked flavor and overall just wasn’t what i thought it would be. Not sure how its so highly rated. Not a bad restaurant but id give it a 3.2/5 not sure how its a 4.7

Very friendly, culturally French wait staff that pleasantly worked with us when our guest ended up half an hour late. I had moules gratinees and Filet Mignon Rossini (Tournedos Rossini) topped with a piece of foie gras). Both were excellent. My wife had butternut squash soup and then an appetizer special of Pheasant Armagnac as her entree (the waiter had told us it made a nice lighter entree); she loved both. Our guest had only an entree--shrimp risotto--which he thought delicious. The menu is simple with a beef, chicken, pork, risotto, and market fish all reasonably priced PLUS the filet mignon as a special. It's French cuisine with a hint of Basque cooking (one of the appetizers is 'Txipirones" a squid dish I was not familiar with). The three of us shared two desserts (a tarte chocolat and a tarte citron). Everything was excellent and the atmosphere was "tres" convivial. We'll go back one of the next times we are in Soho.

Cocotte is a warm & cozy spot - which makes the entire experience wonderful! Loved our evening there.

Food, Cocktails and service were great, but the menu is limited. Too light on the vegetarian options (all main entres [on the menu at least] have meat or fish. Even the lentils and mushrooms come with bacon or chorizo. I know it's French, but... its 2018.

Fantastic food and service! Only downside is that the restaurant is very small and therefore seating is 'intimate'. We were unable to converse easily and hear each other across our table ( which wasn't large) once a rather loud group of four sat one side and two tables down another group of four were talking together.

An amazing dinner, felt back like in France . Amazing food, really amazing and affordable. When i say amazing, I talk about the quality of the product and the way they are cook as it's not that easy to find in New York.
Staff is all French but so nice, take such a good care of you and make sure everything is going well.

Living is USA for 20 years and in NYC for 5 years I am really impress. We will be back and recommand your place

This cozy gem of a restaurant is small without feeling crowded. The service was friendly and attentive, both tableside and at the bar. Every dish was rich and flavorful without being heavy or making one feel like arteries might be clogging or pounds being gained. Chocolate lovers: the chocolate tart dessert is a must! Our overall dining experience was delightful, and we'll soon be back.

This was my second time coming here for breakfast, and while the food is always fantastic, the waitstaff and host (front door gentleman) are always so personable, friendly and really make me want to return. He even convinced me that I’m missing out until I’ve had the dinner there, so I’ve already booked my return for dinner!

Great from start to finish. We were early for our reservation and the host kept us posted by the minute when our table would be ready. The restaurant is tiny, but we didn't feel cramped at our table. All of the food was delicious, especially the appetizer specials and the charcuterie plates which were great for sharing. Main courses were presented beautifully, the pork was amazing and the fish special was great. The lemon tart was one of the best, and definitely order the pain perdu if they have it. Will absolutely visit again. Highly recommended!
