This place is the best! Amazing food and atmosphere, they've done an incredible job pivoting to outdoor dining during the pandemic. The live music on Wednesdays is an added bonus. :)

Not sure it's fair to review under covid times, but it did take a really long time to get our first course (30 min). Once we got it, then the rest of service was OK. I would like to go back to try under more normal circumstances one day.

Very nice brunch during covid times. Plenty of well-spaced outdoor seating. Delicious chicken panini. Fried chicken burger was good too but not as good as the panini. Good fries and very nice white wine, shallot mussels. Good value.

Everyone is adjusting to life outdoors, I'll give them a break for that. I've been a Cocotte fan for years and they still deliver. Bone marrow!

Fantastic French food. Service was excellent. The live music (including a saxophone player) on Saturday night really landed the punch. In tis crazy time, eating amazing food and listening beautiful live music echoing off the streets of Russian Hill was a blessing.

It was one of those great San Francisco autumn days so brunch was delightful. Not much traffic so little noise. The only issue we had was that two of us were not able to open the menu from the Q-codes. However, our server brought up the menu on his own cell phone and left it with us to look at.

Great food. They really care about quality all the way from the food to the booze. We got amazing French onion soup, mussles in white win,osso bucco and fries l. The mussles been the best that I ever had and the rest was good as well. For alcohol we got Chimas blue that was priced at reasonable $12. Highly recommended.

Some Chefs didn’t have masks on. Waiter took our phones back inside where “the light was better to scan the menu QR code” - thoughtful but if you touch our phones it defeats the whole purpose of a contactless menu...

They need some work on covid protocol. Don’t go if you’re concerned.

We love Cocotte! We had been a few times before lockdown, and were so excited to see they had a lovely outdoor seating area set up. We went last weekend for our first meal out since SIP began... what a treat! As always, very friendly and personable staff, and delicious food. We always order the Mussels Mariniere which are amazing. Their menu is small (only a few items change seasonally) and we've tried mostly everything on there - all very good. The coq au vin, pork shank osso bucco, and beef wellington are some favorites. That said, you can't go wrong! It's so nice to be able to visit again, we'll definitely be back soon!

I have really appreciated Cocotte during this Pandemic time. Today I ordered the duck salad. It was yummy and light. The fried avocado was kind of fun. My husband like his mussels and I saw him pour some of the broth on his fries, because it was so good.
I would recommend Cocotte.

I've been here a few times, but it's been awhile. I came because we were in the neighborhood and they offered outdoor dining. Happy we came. The outdoor set up for Coronavirus was very good. A number of tables spread out so you are far from other diners. We started with the lobster beet salad - it was very good. Then the whole roasted chicken, done to perfection, lots leftover to take home The molten chocolate was delicious. Wine was good. Server was good.

I’ve lived in the neighborhood for years, but this was my first time at Cocotte. I truly enjoyed the food and the experience. They really made the most of outdoor dining. David, our server, was attentive and pleasant to talk to.

The food was delicious and reasonably priced. The Coq au Vin was flavorful and presented masterfully. The bottle of Albariño we ordered was dry and “minerally” on the palette. The banana creme brûlée is one of my favorite desserts I’ve had in a while.

The food was good and reasonably priced. However they did not share the wine list, we ordered two glasses of red and we were surprised that for one glass cost $17. For two glasses the wine was more expensive that the food.

Tables appropriately spaced on the sidewalk. No heaters but none needed the night we were there. Candlelight and low traffic on Hyde made for a casual, romantic evening.

In this time of Covid, Cocotte has figured out how to offer an expansive menu, provide good service and do their best to provide some ambience on the sidewalk in front of their restaurant. We applaud their efforts, really enjoyed our meal— the food was outstanding – – and the service was so welcoming! We had the half chicken and filet Wellington and shared a bottle of red wine.

This restaurant has dealt with COVID 19 super well. Their outdoor dining is comfortable and well lit for the evening.

You must get their white wine mussels. Some of the best I’ve had in a long time.

Food was delicious, employees were wearing gloves and masks, very knowledgeable. Live music on a Monday, was a nice surprise. I had noted in my reservation which dessert and that it was my bf's birthday and they brought it out to his surprise :) entrees did take a little while to come out after starters, but we were taking our time with wine so was fine.

If you want to know what it would be like to wander into a French bistro in France (not San Francisco) then make a point to wander into Cocotte. It is unpretentious delicious authentic French cooking with good service. This was a Tue eve during prime time Coronavirus fear, so things were quiet and it was easy to converse, linger over Coc au Vin, Gnocchi (Parisienne) and a spicy Pinot. I’d been here for happy hour at the small intimate bar, but had wanted to come back for dinner ever since. Thoroughly enjoyed my bday dinner.
