Live jazz was an unexpected pleasure. But I’ve been here several times (5?) and I just love the outdoor dining ambiance. It’s perfecto. Food isn’t outrageously priced but also haven’t ever told a friend “you know where you NEED to try….cocotte.” Will keep coming back because it is so darn quaint :)

We sat outside which was fine as there were heat lamps but the server (who was so nice) was overwhelmed as they were the only one outside and it was a holiday and very busy. The bus boy was less than friendly and I had to ask for a coffee refill 3 times and then cream and by the time the cream came the coffee was cold. The food though was delicious and they had great live music (jazz).

I was seated right in front of the jazz band so a little too loud, but I’d take that any day over no music. They were delightful.

Really disappointed. We reserved the 9pm reservation spot on opentable. I didn’t expect that the restaurant would allow a reservation at a time that they were closing down? They told us the kitchen closes in 15 mins and the jazz stopped right when we got there. The server was really nice about it and the place itself was cute, but it was a pretty big bummer considering we had brought people from out of town and were anticipating a different type of experience

Food was AMAZING! BUT.. our waiter was not friendly at all, seemed moody, and we felt rushed ordering our food
And drinks. The other wait staff that were assisting him were very nice, one of them realized it was my birthday and brought my desert with a lit candle “not our waiter”, so when our main waiter saw that he came with our check, was
Much nicer and said happy birthday. But by then it was a little too late to make up for the way he had been. Also, do not expect your desert to be complimentary for your b day.
Also, we booked at 5 since There was live jazz that was supposed to start then, but they didn’t start until an hour later, when we were done with dinner and leaving.

It started off well. We were greeted right away and our server was at our table , initial entrees came out quickly . But went downhill from there . Surprised at how mediocre the food was despite the high ratings . My friend and I had omelettes and they were “not bad” but they really just OK. For the price and ratings, I definitely would’ve expected a less rubbery omelette with more flavor . As it got busier, it looked like there was still only one server so there was not much follow up and when we ordered the chocolate cake , it took well over 15 mins for us to get it (closer to 20 mins actually) and if we hadn’t followed up we would not have been told it takes at least 10 mins to prepare it (although at this point it was well past that time ). A lady came thru with what looked like a Bible and began chatting it up w customers eating . Then found herself at one of the tables and not too long after I could barely hear our conversation as the lady started singing at the top of her lungs . Being from SF, I understand the various characters in the city. So that was fine , the first time around . But as we stayed she continued to get into bursts of singing at the top of her lungs to where she was even standing . At this point I felt it was just disruptive . I flagged the male host down because our server was nowhere to be found as we needed our bill and been waiting , I gave him feedback about the noise . And what I received was a defensive “oh that’s Stacey she comes here everyday and she’s harmless” . I said I didn’t say she was here to harm but what I am saying is it’s becoming disruptive . We came here to eat a meal that isn’t exactly cheap and converse and can barely hear ourselves . I do think she should’ve been addressed the first time around . But for him to say this happens all the time certainly doesn’t make it appealing for me to go back . Not to mention he was applauding her outbursts , literally. B/w mediocre food, slowness & disruption, never coming back .

This wasn’t our first visit so had higher expectations. While the food was ok, it was served altogether (main course came out before soup was even finished) :( overall, Coquette is trying to just survive and doing it well

The perfect dinner spot for my 45th Bday! They had an awesome band playing music, Vladimir was a fantastic waiter, and the food was INCREDIBLE. I had the beef wellington with bone marrow, potato gratin with goat cheese, endive salad, shared a Bordeaux wine, lava cake and blood orange sorbet for dessert. You cannot go wrong here for a nice evening out. Great experience.

I have been a fan of Cocotte for several years. I love the great food, the gracious service and the intimate ambience. I call it "French Cozy." I was very pleased to return to the restaurant for the first time since the pandemic and the food and service did not disappoint, but the live music being performed in the front of the restaurant made conversation nearly impossible. The jazz ensemble was quite good, but that's not really the point. It seems wrong-headed that an establishment known as the perfect place for intimate dining and conversation would create a situation that made that impossible. I realize that for the past year, restaurants had to "pull out all the stops" to survive and use new ways of attracting customers during these stark time, but the noise issue actually detracts from the dining experience and, given the excellence of this wonderful restaurant, that seems a shame.

Went for restaurant week and it was such a great experience. Beautiful ambiance that is suitable for girls night out or even a romantic date! Staff was very friendly and attentive and food was amazingly delicious. My party were able to try to cheese soufflé (highly recommend), pate, king salmon, Wellington (amazing), banana cream brûlée (a tad sweet but great for sharing) and a delicious flourless chocolate cake. They also had live music that night (don’t know if it’s a regular thing). I would definitely like to return again ❤️

We arrived on time for our reservation. I had requested an outdoor table as my friend had already dined at Cocotte pre-pandemic. He remembered the tables being quite close together inside and asked to dine outdoors. They did have two small tables outside that we could’ve chosen. But when my friend checked the seating inside, he changed his mind as he saw the seating had dramatically decreased and the remaining tables were very distanced apart. Also their doors at the entrance were completely open as if there was no wall at the front and just open onto the sidewalk.
Cocotte allowed to change to indoor dining. They said if we didn’t mind waiting for a couple to finish their meal and then sanitize table. Which we didn’t mind. We talked outside and listened to the music from a local singer stationed at the front entrance by the bar.
Once we seated they asked for our selections from the prix fixe menu.
My friend selected the Aged Cheddar Soufflé with salad, Beef Wellington with a glass of red wine. I ordered the Duck Rillette and slow cooked Wild Salmon.
We nibbled on their bread and olive tapenade with our drinks.
I sampled my friend’s airy soufflé when our appetizers arrived. My duck rillette also came with some blackberry compote which added a nice touch to the duck.
When our entrees arrived, we split the beef Wellington and salmon between our plates making our own surf and turf.
The Beef Wellington was a perfect medium rare, moist and flavorful. The salmon was moist and delicious with a crispy skin. We thoroughly enjoyed our entrees.
For dessert we had three choices. We passed on the Banana Creme Brûlée this time. He ordered the Apple Tart Tatin and I ordered their Chocolate Cake Fondant with a glass of port.
His apple tart was yummy but my Chocolate Cake Fondant was absolutely delicious 😋 It was a chocolate lava cake with a sliced strawberry and a bit of sauce which it didn’t need. We were very happy with the meal and service!!!

Took a friend there for his birthday. It was the first time for all of us. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we were treated very well. Attentive service. The food was outstanding. We began with the charcuterie platter. As it was Restaurant Week, two of us ordered the Pre-Fixe 3-course menu. We shared our appetizers of a duck rillette, a salad, and a cheese souffle. Two of us ordered the beef fillet mignon wellington. And an apple tarte tartin for dessert. The three of us were in heaven. Every bite was delicious. Decadence. A food-lovers' dream. Parking can be challenging. (I tried to upload photos but kept getting an error message.)

I love Cocotte. This time tho, the food quality seemed down a notch since last time I ate there in the Fall. Not as fresh, meat overcooked a bit. Pâté was nearl inedible. Live music is a nice touch, but it was really loud that night. My dining companions and I had trouble hearing one another, and we were 4 tables away from the band.

My family had a wonderful dinner at Coyote. Our waiter (wish I could remember his name) was a wonderful Frenchman who was friendly, entertaining and efficient. His presence definiteky contributed to the ambience. We ate outside next to a heater which was needed as the night went in. The Beef Wellington was fabulous and the desserts were delicious as well.

I don't think they were properly prepared for Easter brunch. Short staffed and the chef was annoyed when I asked for a fried egg on my sandwich. Which never happened. I am sure under regular circumstances it would have been a great experience.
