French
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.

Cocotte is a fine restaurant. Very few dishes to choose from, which definitely makes ordering an easy task. The boeuf was delicious, the pork shoulder was tasty as well.

Fantastic food and service. Best food we’ve had on this vacation. Actually considering going back before we leave. My wife had the pork shoulder and I had the hangar steak. Both were incredible!

I think overall Cocotte was good. The charcuterie was tasty, but overly priced for the amount of food. Additionally, the pork that my husband was good. My fish was terrible. It was rubbery and had raw garlic on it. Very unsatisfying. I think overall the service was excellent, and the staff was friendly and welcoming. I think the prices are extreme for the amount of food.

Primarily a wine bar with a modest food menu. It's kind of like tapas, but what is made is absolutely superb. Sign outside says happy hour till 6, but happy hour prices apply only to the few bar seats.

Great Soho neighborhood restaurant with a lot of charm. Food was excellent - had the Poulet and Hangar steaks to share. Plenty of food for 2 and paired very nicely with a Bordeaux wine. Definitely need to make reservations as it is a very small establishment.

Starting with the good: food, vibe, & ambience were all excellent. The chicken, the mussels, the salade, & hangar steak were all standouts, as was the bourbon sour.

Now the bad: I’m so glad we waited it out over cocktails even though we started looking for another restaurant as we were getting hangry. Our reservation was for 8pm and we didn’t get seated until 8:42!!! So - beware because other people near us had a similar problem. If you have the time to wait around, go because the food is outstanding.

Charming gem in Soho! Warm, rustic, cozy atmosphere/vibe, friendly service, & delicious cuisine from the Basque region! Great fresh spring vegetable salad, delicious txipirones (baby squid in squid ink), super tender fish-of-the-day (hake) a la plancha served in flavorful red pepper sauce, & a great fresh side of Brussels sprouts! Good cocktails, wines a bit overpriced/marked-up.

friendly people and waiters, authentic and creative food, culinary innovation, amazing ambiance — Cocotte hits every spot! the waiters and chefs are actually from France and so friendly and accommodative. For the amazing food, the prices are not too expensive as well (especially by new york standards). The favorite part of my meal was the special creme brûlée foie gras, which was an innovative sweet-and-salty-fusion take on traditional creme brûlée (it was an appetizer) — culinary innovation and creativity at its best!
Overall an amazing experience :)

Delicious food, friendly service, specials a must have. Try their jalapeño gin martinis (not on the “drink menu”, but a specialty. Amazing. Everything comfort real home-style delicious French with excellent preparations. Standard menu seems basic but their specials with imported ingredients from the Basque region are by far the standouts. Reasonable prices to boot! Definite recommendation from a foodie who usually frequents the Michelin establishments.

An impeccable dining experience from start to finish. This quaint underground restaurant offers exceptional service from the moment you walk in, to the time you leave. It feels like you’re walking into a family restaurant where the ambience is welcoming and the vibe is relaxing.

The food though is the real winner. Understated french at its finest, the menu is tight but well thought out. Best done by sharing and tasting everything, until you get to dessert where you’ll definitely want one for yourself. Try the crème montée and thé tarte au chocolat. You won’t be disappointed!

Some people may not agree with me on this, but the only thing that really bothered me, was some guy less than a yardstick away from me wearing a sports team tank top. Due to the tight seating, I was forced to eat staring at his creepy, hairy armpits. The next time I go back to Coccote, I'll be sure to bring blinders.

Cocotte is a charming place and space. Be prepared for your table to be close to neighbors but somehow you can keep conversations private. The noise level did however elevate during the 2 hours we were there. The menu is limited but there seems plenty to order from as everything is appealing. Friday night is no double a busy evening but while the service was cheerful and professional, we did have to flag down a server for drinks. The wine list is extensive and good but could have more lower range options as that is where the bill goes up. The pours are also on the modest size for the price of wine by the glass. Everyone enjoyed what we ordered. The only disappointment was the $20 asparagus appetizer—only two or three white asparagus stalks with a minced topping that seemed identical to that in the stuffed mushrooms we ordered with it. All the diners around us seemed very happy with their meals and shared their enthusiasm. This is a great place to eat.
