Cocotte restaurant merges the timeless essence of the traditional French rotisserie with avant-garde flavors inspired by Califonia’s farm-fresh palate.
Enjoyed the service very much. The salad and coq au vin were delicious! The chocolate molten cake was okay. Great overall.
Love this little neighborhood restaurant. Everything I’ve had there is delicious. Ok the Lobster salad wasn’t great but I’ll give them a pass because of the rest of the food! Have been several times and will keep coming back.
Our waiter barely came to check on us, but the other staff members were great. The food was pretty flavorful, but nothing incredible. It was extremely loud whenever the washer in the back was using the sprayer to clean, and the music was really loud. There are much better restaurants to spend the same amount of money and time in San Francisco.
The food was delicious especially the pork chop and chicken. We will go back and enjoy the fine wines and food.
Have already recommended Cocotte to a number of friends. Great food and service. Good wine list. Lovely restaurant, really perfect for couples.
This is a great neighborhood spot suitable for a date or a dinner with a good friend. The atmosphere is lovely and that of a small French bistro - which this is! Couples on a romantic dinner should request the 'nook' table around the corner. It is very private and quiet while retaining a view of the cozy dining room.
Excellent food. Noise level was a little out of control at times, likely due to the special event.
A bistro in the best sense of the word I.e. a great neighborhood restraint.
Cocotte is a lovely little restaurant with excellent food. They are so accommodating and friendly. It’s one of our favorite small restaurants.
A wonderful meal with excellent service.
We actually had a wonderful dinner here with our party totaling 5 people.
However, we were not informed (when we were seated or when the bill was presented to us) of the mandatory 20% tip which was included in the total, and we proceeded to tip another 20%, something which we did not realize until we arrived home, scratched our heads and thought, gosh, that was a more expensive meal than it should have been.
It is quite confusing because the credit card slip which we signed includes a "tip chart", which caused us to miscue and include another tip.
What is really unfortunate is that I see many reviews on Yelp from other patrons of Cocotte complaining about exactly the same thing!
Excellent service and delicious cuisine. We will certainly recommend Cocotte to our friends!
If what the waiter told me were true, I’d understand and be more sympathetic to the understaff situation. And maybe he was telling me the truth but his attitude was rude. I wouldn’t go there again. Terrible experience.
Our favorite restaurant in San Francisco. Food is awesome, staff is wonderful and there is always a great vibe to the place. Wine list is excellent as well.
We were heading to a show at The Masonic. It was a lovely walk from the restaurant, which felt like we were in a little street in France. Dont miss the osso bucco. Other items-like the rotisserie chicken are delicious as well.
Enjoyed our evening. Good food, nice ambience! Will eat there again!
Been here many times. Food is always of great quality. The service was always great. Must try the Beef Wellington and their famous rotisserie chicken.
Great potential. I think we just may have caught them on a busy night. The staff were very kind, being busy made being attentive quite tough though. Awesome food and the cheese plate was great!
Had a great time, food was amazing , drinks were good. Very cool building next to the cable car tracks where you have dinner and you could see the cable cars passing by ! The manager was such a nice guy and everything was perfect ! We will be back here for sure, one of the best restaurants in the city!
I was disappointed that I specifically asked for a special arrangement for my birthday guest and they were ignored. No mention of a birthday or candle on a dresser. The food was also not great and I will not be coming back.
Cozy place. Small but comfortable. Service was attentive but not overpowering. Food, wine was really good. Only wine, no cocktails, fyi...
Definitely loud, so not your quiet evening out place to go.....
Dinner at Cocotte was excellent; we ate mussels, swordfish, pork on the bone and two great deserts (plus wine from a great wine list.) It is a lively restaurant with good service and a nice feel on a cool night in Russian Hill.
We had a great meal at Cocotte after a performance of the SF Ballet. The food was excellent, both the Coq au vin & my 'Butcher's cut' which was Osso Bucco. We also had salads which were lightly dressed and very tasty. The bread is optional, but it was delicious, served warm with olive tapenade. I would definitely recommend Cocotte to my friends.
Great little French spot. Fun, energetic and very good food.
Accommodating service, excellent food, and albeit tight, it’s a romantic and intimate setting. Thanks for a fantastic date dinner!
Wonderful meal, great service, adorable neighborhood restaurant.
The Valentine’s Day prefix menu was definitely overpriced, but that’s what I get for looking for a table at the last minute :)
A very cozy small restaurant with good food in a neighborhood. Feels like you've been transported to Paris!
Our experience, on a busy Friday night, was much better than we had expected. Meats were perfectly done, wine was great and service was fine, if slightly rushed. We’ll be back.
AMAZING, Wellington was EXQUISITE! Highly recommend, everyone is so kind
Intimate, yet busy and fun. Even the restroom was entertaining. We didn't order from the menu, but from what others patrons were eating around us. That said, I think anything from the tight, varied menu would have been a good choice. Great place to impress a date.
Came here for restaurant week with 2 other friends and was able to enjoy all the items on the menu. Favorites were the endive salad with the fried cheese, the pan fried gnocchi, and the banana creme brulee. Services was attentive, great ambiance, and the restaurant was quiet to actually have a conversation with your dinner dates. Our only was that more bread came with the chicken liver pate and lobster bisque. Would come again if in the area!
A hidden gem, great to try at least once. Unique menu. Lucked out on finding parking a block away. Tables were very closed together and space is half the size you would expect based on occupancy. But you can still hear your champions if you are in a small group of 2-4. Nice service.
Don’t understand why this place has high rate on opentable. Yelp is more reliable.
Very good restaurant! Great food and nice ambiance, still very noisy!
Hostess was able to accommodate us coming in an hour early. Authentic French food. Tasty and good portion!
Beware the sparkling water is $8 a bottle.
We went during Restaurant week and it was a Really great deal.
Lovely evening with delicious food. Did not wait long but early reservation. apps and dinner quite good. restaurant is loud which might bother some. Otherwise, will be back
Friend from out of town. Great place to go for exceptional food at a good price. A casual setting, friendly staff and warm environment. Cannot go back soon enough
