For your next special occasion/fancy night out dinner in SoHo, consider the French fine dining at Le Coucou.
Our dinner was perfection. Delicious foods, lovely ambience, and amazing staff. Thank you for an amazing meal!
The most innovative and delicious food I've had in a long while. Very happy to have celebrated my birthday there!
Gorgeous place with excellent, beautifully presented dishes. We forgive them for the subpar piece of steak my companion was served. That can happen anywhere. And they quickly replaced it. But we were rushed and over-serviced. You don’t expect so many staff stopping by when you’re downtown. And the 5 glasses of wine we had, though good, were expensive beyond reason. I then realized why they had a $95 corkage fee listed on their open table notes, something I originally found curious. I have never brought my own wine to a nice restaurant. And I am not a “value” person when it comes to restaurants. In fact, I find that idea anathema to the experience of dining out. If you want value, stay home. But there is a point where the gouging is insulting.
It was our first time there. We both absolutely loved it. The ambiance is authentic French. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. The service was superb. My glass of water must have been refilled after every 2 ounces of water I drank. The food presentation was terrific. The taste, delicious. Great experience. Not inexpensive, but worth the entire experience. I highly recommend it.
PlCe is beautiful. Staff very attentive. Food delicious
I have order a pancake which was overly sweet! Very disappointed !
We spent Mother’s Day here and had a very pleasant evening!
Great meal and lovely atmosphere.
loved and will be back!! delicious food and the ambiance was just perfect. eclectic place, understated elegance!!! one of the best dining destinations in soho for sure!! highly recommend.
Highly arrogant/rude wait staff. Got the eye roll when declining dessert. Always pushing the up-sale.
The dishes were all delicious and the service was very good. We went there for lunch on a Saturday. There was one option of prix fix including an appetizer and an entrée. It was very quiet and there was a lot of space which made it very easy to bring our 1 year old in his stroller.
The best breakfast restaurant in NYC.
One of the most perfect meals I have had world-wide. Love this place!
Lovely lunch prix fixe. Excellent service and surprisingly unpretentious. A modern yet classic POV on French food that’s unique.
Wonderful ambiance, great service and the food is amazing. Every dish that we tried was prepared to perfection, wine list is also very good (a bit pricey), one of the best French restaurants in the city. Will definitively go back again! Highly recommended
My friend and I had a wonderful lunch at Le Coucou. The food, service (Guillermo), wine (glasses of red bordeaux), and atmosphere were excellent. We highly recommend the fried veal’s head appetizer and the chicken with foie gras and whiting with black truffle butter entrees. We also had a taste of the new quenelle in champagne buerre blanc sauce that was spectacular. And we want to especially thank Chef Lorna and Manager Troy for their efforts to make sure everyone has a memorable dining experience!!!
Un superbe déjeuner à deux. Une cuisine à la française comme on aime. La cuisine ouverte est un vrai plaisir des yeux. Le service est au petit soin. Je recommande vivement un passage au coucou pour les amoureux de la gastronomie français de passage à NYC.
The food was delicious, the setting was very pretty, and great sevice
Dining at Le cou cou always a memorable,fun,experience. Food innovative and superb. Service is attentive and welcoming . It’s a great and notable restaurant.
We were served our main course within a couple of minutes of our starter plates being removed. The whole experience was rushed and not a relaxed enjoyable one. Waiters were constantly hovering and asking if we had finished or meals rather than allow us to relax and take our time. Will not be going back, very disappointed. Poor service.
As a swiss family, we have been traveling extensively in France and we can say with confidence that „Le Coucou“ has been a real French surprise. Excellent food, delicious flavors, beautiful composition and attentive, professional and friendly service. We will recommend „Le Coucou“ to all our friends. Merci beaucoup et tous nos compliments au Chef:)
WE HAD A GREAT LUNCH !! BEAUTIFUL RESTAURANT AND THE FOOD WAS AMAZING
IT IS VERY EXPENSIVE
Place is outstanding in every way!! I am in love with this restaurant
Can't say enough good things about this place. Four of us went and ordered different dishes so that we all could try a broad selection. Everything was pretty much flawless. For me the stand out was a cabbage wrapped lobster and scallop appetizer and the Dover sole.
The service was as spot on as the food.
Great wine selections.
Reserve far far in advance.
The ambiance & interiors are beautiful and top-notch. The service staff was knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. Service was impeccable. Overall we had a very enjoyable experience though I think the ambiance and service heavily skewed our positive experience relative to our food selection.
We started with the gem lettuce oeufs printanières which was unique, delicious and extremely flavorful. This was followed by the fried Montauk eel which was very tasty. Though made and garnished delicately -- it wasn't mind-blowingly memorable. We next had the quenelle de brochet sprinkled with caviar. Though the flavors were warm and dynamic - the richness was a bit over-powering and needing more acidity to cut the richness. Lastly we tried the pigeon. Again delicately prepared and beautifully plated - however the smokiness of the preparation overwhelmed the delicate flavors of the meat. As well the meat taste was quite gamey but this of course may be personal preference. For dessert we had the pistachio ice cream flambé. This was a highlight of the meal. The flavors were complex and lively. It was sweet and delicious.
Though I was not astonishingly impressed with our food selection I would definitely return to try again. One can certainly tell that the food is prepared with love and care and I'd be interested to see if there are items more suited to our palate down the road.
Ambience and Food were fantastic....we walked out feeling very content seeing that all our previous meal in New York were very average.
Disappointing. Contrary to Conde Nast ratings, it was nothing extraordinary.
One of the best meals I’ve had in New York City! Each dish was unique and flavorful, and so spectactularly prepared.
We've been to Le Coucou once for lunch. This time it is for dinner and in the evening the restaurant is really quite beautiful. The lamb neck and pigeon Catalan style are outstanding.
Terrific meal bursting with flavor. Creative riffs on classics. The restaurant is beautiful and the service was perfect. Top dining experience.
Superb food and service. My skate appetizer was tough and stringy but everything else was first rate, including the service. A midtown restaurant downtown. A true gem.
Wonderful place. Got lucky and got a Sunday May 6, breakfast reservation that same morning. Service is terrific- friendly, smiling and attentive. Food is fabulous. Two course prix fixe menu was extensive and very reasonably priced at only $54 per person but spent more with very nice wines. Beautiful restaurant but not at all pretentious. Recommend highly, but not for children.
Great place. Service could be better. Servers not asking if u want another drink, or more coffee. But great overall
This place is simply impeccable in every possible way.
Great. Well prepared classic French food and service in a very beautiful room.
What an amazing dining experience. The food was incredible and seasonal and French without being too heavy. Every dish was DIVINE - the oysters, roasted leeks, caviar covered omelet (not sure what this was but life changing), foie gras stuffed chicken, and all of the rabbit plus room for dessert (chocolate mousse all the way) and some amazing French press coffee. Honestly wish I could come back every weekend, but it’s such a beautiful celebratory place, and I’ve never eaten in such an aesthetically pleasing room. Plus the bar - BEAUTIFUL! Go go go, run, don’t walk!
Friend in town
Tip top!! From start to finish.
