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!!!

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.

We went for the Restaurant Week special. The first two courses were outstanding -- Ahi Tuna Tartare followed by Pork Shank Osso Bucco. The molten chocolate lava cake dessert was a bit ordinary and slightly on the cool side. Had a nice claret with the meal. The big problem was the noise level, otherwise very happy.

A little too crowded. We had a table right by the kitchen & it was a bit of a squeeze each time the servers needed to get by. We were constantly worried they would spill something on us.

This was my second time at Cocotte and can't say I was too impressed the second time around. We had an 8pm reservation and just a mere 45min later, we were seated. After chatting with a few other patrons at the bar, they too had been waiting at minimum 30 min past their reservation time.

I think Cocotte needs to figure out how many reservations they can honor at any given time, since they clearly overbooked, or underestimated how long others who are dining would stay at their table.

At the very least, we should have been offered a glass of wine or something to snack on, since many of us arrived hungry and with the expectation that we would be seated quickly.

The food was fresh and well presented. However, we were told no cocktails because “the person who makes them isn’t here tonight”. Really?? In addition, there was nothing special about the food. It was good, but no wow factor at all. We had seen the place on “Check Please Bay Area” and based on their reviews, we were very excited to go. Maybe our expectations were too high?

Too many tables for the space and the tables are way too close together. Completely ruins the ambiance/atmosphere. The staff barely had space to walk. It was ridiculous. They were also understaffed the day we went.

Always a pleasure to dine here. The staff was super friendly and adapted to our humor right away. Basically we left it to the waiter to choose the food which was amazing. We had foie gras, muscles, and peppers for starters, then two of us had the beef Wellington and two had the duck. All Delicious. The waiter also made a great wine recommendation to accompany the selections.

A winner in this cute little place on Hyde. We will return and recommend often.

Not great. Food was meh. Foie gras terrine was under seasoned and the beef Wellington soggy. Lobster salad was also under seasoned, which made it boring and lacking in flavor. The buttermilk fried quail and the banana creme brûlée were delicious. Frankly, I cannot even remember the rest of the dishes because they were utterly forgettable.
It was Christmas Eve though, so maybe not their best effort.

This was perhaps our fourth visit to Cocotte over the past few years. The roasted chicken was, as always, wonderful. My son loved his coq a vin. My husband had three problems with his meal--his peppper appetizer was not very tasty (though he in fact did eat it all, he was hungry), the cod was dry and his wine was spoiled. I tasted the wine as well. We brought that to the attention of the server/owner, who first tasted it, tried to tell us that is just how the wine tastes (grenache), but did then graciously serve him a glass of another wine (no charge for the first one, which was barely touched).

It just seemed the evening was a bit off. They were not that busy for most of the night (12/23) . It was just that they seemed to imply that we didn't know what we were talking about with the wine, and we are very well schooled in wine and food.

Happy new year, though.

Kind of a slow night so our service was extra attentive and personable. Love the food always. Portions are not large but plenty for sharing family style among reasonable eaters. Wine list a little over-priced for the quality but a fine variety to select from. We will keep coming back!

Thanksgiving dinner was exceptional. Service was amazing with great wine recommendations and food knowledge. Props to chef Daniel that I had the pleasure of meeting this thanksgiving who put out an incredible menu my family and I enjoyed. Very busy and props to the entire staff for making mine and my family's thanksgiving a meal to remember.

Time/reservation management should be a very simple task for all restaurants; yet, at Cocotte, their incompetence managed to make it a difficult task, as they had us waiting 75 minutes for our table--even with a reservation. To add, they brought 2 out of 3 starter dishes for us and had us waiting ~8 min for the 3rd person's soup. Now, although the food wasn't as great, as expected, it's understandable because people have different (dis)likes. The real problem was the time/reservation mgmt, the hostesses' arrogance, and the food service. Even though it was Thanksgiving and we were nice, we still gave a 20% tip; however, think of it as a goodbye present, as that is the last time they will get any of our money (or any of our friend's money).

We had a great time, the service was excellent and the ambiance was romantic. They sat us in this sweet little nook so it felt more private. The food choices were great as well as the wine and the only downside was the passion fruit sorbet was too sweet.

Decent enough spot. Pretty good (if pricey) food. Mostly friendly service. Honestly I was quite happy with it until the end. We asked to split the bill across a couple of credit cards. Instead of simply stating that it was not their policy to do so (Which would have been totally understandable). The waiter/bartender made a derisive comment about millennials that me then tried to disguise as a joke. This just left a poor taste in my mouth since we had simply asked the question, were not insistent, and had no problem following the restaurant’s policy. Disappointing end to what was otherwise a pleasant meal.
