Great neighborhood restaurant that delivers a great dining experience time after time.
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!
Everything was great. Went for my wedding anniversary. The food was fantastic. Will definitely go back and would highly recommend.
Loved the beef Wellington! Perfectly done tender fillet, great crust and generous 2 piece portion. Served with a delicious broiled bone marrow!
