Was waited on by the bartender. He had no skills. Clearing courses before everyone was finished, rushing us through courses, declining to split plates for us and finally, he picked up the signed check off the table while we were still seated. Utterly classless. Especially so since we spent $450 for 6 people after they added an automatic 20% gratuity. Ridiculously noisy. Won't be back.

My friend and I were seated in the special alcove. While a slight challenge for taller people, it's a charming nook with romantic ambiance. Our mussels marinieres, coq au vin, gnocchi, and potatoes gratin were all tasty.

Check out Cocotte!

No "Wow" factor. Usually French restaurants have great "frites" but these were limp and undercooked. The rotisserie chicken was also undercooked for my taste. It was served with three different sauces that were all underwhelming. The soup was outstanding, the espresso was great, the pork belly and the potatoes with cheese were great. Sorry to say we may not go back.

I love this place! A friend took me here for my birthday 2 years ago and I've been back many times since. The food is amazing, wine list is perfect. It's not too big to get noisy and they do a great job with reservations so people don't line up at the door and/or end up waiting for too long. Thanks Cocotte.

We went for the SF Restaurant Week menu, and it was a bit disappointing. I ended up ordering from the regular menu. Our dishes were good, but not outstanding. Overall, it was decent, but not necessarily a gourmet destination.

I visited Cocotte during the SF Restaurant Week 2017 and the entire experience was mediocre. The $40 pre-fix menu was great opportunity to check out a restaurant i would normally look at for a special occasion, but now that I've been, I don't have future plans to go back. The restaurant was not prepared for the volume of diners coming for SF Restaurant Week. The appetizer was served without explanation of the missing component of the poached egg. Only after i asked the server did he explain that they were "out" of poached eggs. The entree was served hot which was great, but the entire banana creme brulee was served cold. The creme brulee had the presence of being made beforehand and not given the extra touch of a torched top before serving. I have no desires to re-visit this restaurant and I would suggest Mathilde in Soma or Chez Maman for a french dining experience that has great food and doesn't break the bank.

Arrived a bit earlier and we were seated immediately. Food was good. We had the Osso Bucco, 1/2 chicken and the fois gras which was very good. Would definitely recommend. Our server Mike was outstanding! Very attentive, not too pushy and on time with everything.

We arrived on time for our reservation - since there was a delay, the hostess offered us a free glass of wine, which was surprising and pleasant. We were later charged for these glasses though.

The salmon crudo was super salty and overpowering. The main course (osso bucco) was actually tasty and tender, as was the polenta, but it took a very long time to arrive (around 45 minutes). We asked for bread something like 4 times over the course of 30 minutes, and got lucky on the fourth try - bread was great, and came with good tapenade.

Cozy atmosphere, relatively pleasant staff, decent food, but could seriously work to improve their service to justify the price tag, as many of their competitors around Nob Hill / Russian Hill manage to have better service and same

Tried this restaurant for SF Restaurant Week and I was disappointed in the meal. The sole was overcooked as well as the rice served with it. The whole meal seemed like it was prepared earlier in the day and just reheated when ordered. Wasn't thrilled at all.

The meal was good, the servers were great, the manager/owner must have had a bad day. He is fortunate to have a crew that makes up for his reactive behavior. I would not recommend this restaurant simply because I would be afraid they would have the same experience with the restaurant/manager we did. I see there are other reviewers that did. it makes for an unpleasant evening.

I saw Cocotte Restaurant on Check Please on Channel 9 and thought the food looked good. It was my girlfriend's birthday and I thought to bring her to a French restaurant as she also brought me to a French Restaurant ( Jean of Arc ) last July. I had not had French food in a long time and it brought back a great appreciation for the cuisine. I have a background in French cooking as I worked mostly in French Restaurants in San Francisco so many years ago. Our favorite dish at Cocotte was their Beef Wellington and it was cooked the right way. Crispy puff pastry with a juicy filet mignon and very substantial for one person even though we shared it. The small plates were done well and very tasty. Service was good and the table was quite small for the amount of food we ordered. I can not complain about the price as I am responsible for what I ordered. When I go back again, I will order the way that would fit my budget. It was a good eating experience. What matters is that we left happy.

The saving grace of this restaurant is that the food is amazing. Unfortunately, this is completely overshadowed by how terrible the service is. We waited over 35 minutes for our reservation -- a reservation that they would have charged $40 per person to cancel, by the way -- only to find out that the manager had requested a friend be sat before us. Once we finally sat down, we were told that they had ran out of one of the appetizers on the prix fixe menu. We ordered a bottle of wine only to be brought a different one and then told that the bottle we ordered was no longer available even though it was still on the menu. Both our server and the hostess seemed incredibly overwhelmed so I'm assuming our evening can be blamed on poor management. If you're going to eat here, go casually on an evening where they aren't very busy. Clearly that can't handle that.

Don't go on New Year's Eve. You can't choose to order an entree on its own. You have to choose an appetizer, an entree, and a dessert, which costs $85 for all three. You cannot substitute a dessert for another appetizer. Perhaps if the food was amazing we wouldn't have been perturbed by this, but it wasn't. We both had the Beef Wellington.

Food was really really wonderful- I can't wait to go back when they are offering the full menu- service was ok- asked for sparkling water at beginning- had to ask for it again later as it never came and then because it was New Years Eve we wanted to really enjoy the experience but felt very rushed- no time at all between courses! I'm sure on a regular not the service experience will be more to our liking!!

Food was great. The young hostess at the front was awesome. She was able to manage the front well under high stress. There was a lady who had an emergency and the paramedics came. That whole situation delayed everything in the restaurant. We had a reservation but still waited for 45 min which was not pleasant but I totally understand. IF people are not leaving their table , what could she do? If people were not leaving because the food didn't arrive sooner, how could we get those people out? There was a lady at the bar who got seat at the bar complained. I really don't understand.

This restaurant is delightful. The ambiance is charming. The food overall was excellent. We tried three different entrees, of which two were outstanding. Only the chicken was a tiny bit dry. The wine list is great, and our choice of wine was perfectly complementary to the food. We had a really lovely birthday celebration here, and will definitely be returning soon.

I never ever write negative reviews--this may be my first time ever doing so. But I feel compelled to say I was really disappointed with my experience at Cocotte. My group had been looking forward to a rare evening out (one of us just had a baby) and from the moment we sat down we didn't feel welcome. Yes, the group was 12 minutes late to sit, but the restaurant was empty. The waiter (or maybe owner, I couldn't tell) hovered and eventually asked us to move to the bar, yet nobody else was there to take the table...He didn't protest when we awkwardly picked up our things to move outside--we did not feel welcome.It was a again a real disappointment to see a special occasion get cut short because the restaurant seemed eager to move us along when they really didn't need to. If we'd seen others waiting we would have gladly gotten up but the restaurant looked pretty empty. Maybe it's empty because people don't want to go back... We will not be returning.

Appetizers good, especially the mussels. Main courses were okay, not great. We had the pork belly and the short ribs special. The "short ribs" turned out to be one huge rib that was very fatty and hard to get meat off bone. Not the usual tender meat you'd expect with short ribs. It's a tiny place, you are sitting elbow-to elbow with people at the next table. Hard to hear each other. We won't go back unless to maybe grab some mussels at the tiny bar.

I can't comment on the food because we didn't get that far. For our friday night reservation at 7:30pm, we were told it would be another 15 minutes. We waited outside in the cold for 20 before going to check on our table. At 8pm, we were invited back inside to sit down. I'm about to sit down as the manager/bar tender comes over and asks to hang up my jacket from the back of my chair. He also proceeds to take my chair telling me I can't sit there. We asked to move to a different table against the wall and he said "we wouldn't understand" but we can't sit there. Why, was it "reserved"?! We walked out.
