GREAT STAFF....FOOD WAS GREAT ,BEEF WELINGTON WAS THE BEST ... WE WILL BE BACK
We had reservations for 8pm, but Open Table screwed it up and the restaurant had it for 8:30. This gave us enough time to have a glass of bubbly at the bar, which is never a problem. Considering it was a busy Saturday night, we were seated pretty quickly. We had never been to the restaurant and we loved the atmosphere, small and intimate, friendly staff, good wine list. My only gripe was the service. They were very slow to come and bring us bread or water, though we asked immediately upon sitting. The appetizer also took a bit of time, but we overlooked it. To start we had the duck foie gras with poached pear (relish?)...so delicious. My husband had the Beef Wellington and I had the Bouillabaisse, both delicious, plus a side of crispy french fries. During the whole meal we were not only loving our appetizer and entrees, but the bread was the best, very light with perfectly crispy crust. The dessert was a an apple tart, not like any we have tasted, but delicious. All in all, a great dining experience.
It seems that they prefer the walk-ins over the opentable reservations.We had a reservation but arriving there, they said they do not have it. They were not polite and not interested at all in our reservation!! We left the restaurant and checked again in opentable, they showed availability when it was False!!!
Yuri is awesome! Thanks for making dinner fun
Wonderful atmosphere and cuisine! It was our first time but we will be returning soon!
We had to wait a bit even though we had the reservation for 8:30 but it was last day of restaurant week and food was great !
Went for restaurant week and had a lovely time! Every dish was fantastic!
Went here for restaurant week and unlike other places, Cocotte takes it seriously. They offered a variety of delicious choices. The staff was great, the atmosphere was comfortable, and the food memorable. This is a great neighborhood restaurant and I'll be back.
Visited for SF Restaurant Week and was encouraged by Check Please Bay Area Review.
The food was nicely French, but was surprised to see many Italian dishes and preparations on the menu. I had a Trout dish and my partner had Osso Bucco. The trout had skin on, but it wasn't crispy. The osso bucco was chewy and dry, and the polenta wasn't amazing either. Plenty of seasoning on everything but the quality was lacking. Realizing that we could have probably ordered differently and saved quite a bit of money by just ordering ala carte.
One other complaint. They served a sancerre by the glass that was about $16 at Costco (same brand, same vintage). It's a great wine for 16 bucks. They charged $13 for a glass. Come on.
Probably won't go back. The restaurant needs an update. Clearly noticed the leather on the bar stools was cracked and worn away.
Very cozy spot with wonderful food - we enjoyed every bite
