What Insiders Are Saying
For your next special occasion/fancy night out dinner in SoHo, consider the French fine dining at Le Coucou.
It was one of the best French restaurants I have been to. The breakfast was fantastic. I can't wait to go back and try dinner.
Excellent food with good value for lunch. Wine list is overpriced and pretentious.
Food was incredible and service was excellent...until it was time to wrap up. We declined dessert and then waited almost 20 minutes before our check came. It is such a bummer to end a meal with a server’s disappearing act!
Expensive , very poor quality food, overcooked hdlibut with heavy dressing, chicken fois gras bland
Will not return.
We had a truly great meal and experience at Le Coucou. Some of the best French cuisine in the city.
My wife and I had another wonderful meal at this great restaurant. The food and wine are always delicious and the service and hospitality/helpfulness are superb. Obviously, we will be back very soon!!! 👍👍👍👏👏👏
Outstanding service, excellent food! This restaurant deserves a Michelin star!
The thoughtful and accommodating service given by the staff only heightened the dining experience.
The food was delicious from appetisers to main courses and dessert.
We would come back again!
Wow! It was amazing. It was like we were in Paris.
The Quennelle, the vegetable terrine, the chicken and foie gras- all superb. And, the professional and caring service was a perfect match. We loved it.
A treat for all senses. Perfect in every way-delicious food, beautiful atmosphere, knowledgeable and nice waitstaff and great wine! LOVED it. Very special.
Can’t believe no Michelin stars!! A very special place.
Il ne manque que quelques amuses-bouche avec l'apéritif pour obtenir une étoile car tout y est : accueil, service, originalité et qualité des produit !
A recommander sans hésiter
Le Cou Cou was excellent as always for fine traditional French cuisine with a modern touch. Once again I am surprised at how fine dining restaurants in NYC are incapable, with todays technology ,of greeting regulars as such rather than blindly asking if this is your first time there when in reality it is your tenth. Hospitality is everything in a city with countless fabulous options. That said, this is a stunning restaurant with fantastic food that should not be missed.
This is about the fifth time we have visited the restaurant. We are very pleased every time and this time we shared the duck which was sublime! Great service and excellent wine options. Everything was perfect!
I didn’t like service from first step went in to restaurant.
It was an extraordinary restaurant with classic French food taken to another level.
Food was phenomenal. Great night and experience. I would definitely recommend and return when I have a chance.
The food was delicious, especially the quenelles. The service was friendly and attentive but not intrusive. The restaurant is lovely as well, with a relaxed elegance. We highly recommend.
We had a really amazing experience! It started the minute we walked in until the end. I won’t be able to write all the details but a few highlights... I wasn’t happy with the seat the had selected for us. They immediately moved us, without any attitude and gave us an amazing seat. The service is detailed and nothing is missed- really nothing. I was happy to see great wine choices by glass. We usually get very different types of food and I prefer wine pairing with each course, rather than a bottle that fits all the courses. But Many places I am confronted with not the greatest, most elegant wine choices - not here.
Finally my goodness, Chef Daniel has really mastery over sauce making. There wasn’t one that missed the mark and I tried very very MANY different ones that night. The sol is to die for. Read the Newyork times review. Book your reservation. Travel to ge there and you won’t be disappointed at all.
After eating at Spring in Paris a few years ago, I was thrilled to read about Le Coucou. My wife and I were not disappointed, by any stretch of the imagination. Refined, almost revelatory, cooking flows from Daniel Rose's open kitchen and the service more than matches the food. The lamb chop with accompanying braised neck is one of the most inspired dishes in recent memory and, overall, the sauces teach of greatness.
Though one is hard-pressed to find a bottle of wine for under $100, the list is quietly amazing and intelligently supported by the sommeliers.
This is the kind of experience that makes setting an alarm for 12:01 a.m., thirty days from your desired reservation worth it. Book now...
Without any doubt it was an amazing experience, Great ambiance, the place is gorgeous. Very good food and service. After last night Le Coucou is one of my favorite restaurants in New York.
Le Coucou was highly recommended by a friend who co-owns a very successful restaurant in Miami.
It lived up to the recommendation.
Excellent meal! This place definitely deserves one or two Michelin star!
Oh my gosh if you go no where else in New York you need to go to Le Coucou. The food is outstanding, the staff are superb the ambiance, the wine list all amazing. The owner-head chef Daniel Rose is really making this place a destination . Treat yourself and just go for lunch or better yet dinner, you won't be disappointed.
Le Coucou is one of the best. And the price of dining there, while very expensive, is in fact half the cost of NYC's world-class rivals. The food and service are top-notch.
We had lunch. The first course was a fried veal head...looked wonderful but was all fat. Maybe 2 pieces of meat in the entire pattie. The second course was fabulous and so was the ambiance!
One of the best dining experiences of my life. No lie.
We had a fantastic dinner. Le Coucou is very special. Worth staying up until midnight to secure a reservation. I hope to have the opportunity to return one day.
Excelente sitio en medio del soho ruidoso , un oasis
My first visit to Le Cou Cou was stellar, I had to go back the 2nd time. My 2nd visit however was not as memorable as the first. I probably ordered the wrong thing and we were sat in the open entry way. Which is great for people watching, but not intimate as I would have liked. I did mention we were celebrating our anniversary, I'm surprised they sat us in the open. The decor is always fun to glaze at and it's a fun place to people watch. The food is well presented and not a crumb left behind, inc. the service who were so attentive to even our water levels. The lunch is a prix-fix with a selection to suit any diner and their appetite. The service is so methodical and well organized, it doesn't feel human. More robotic and relayed to my dismay. The restaurant is a place to take your best instagram against the backdrop. It's attached to a hotel so you will get a mix of locals and tourists. I think 2 visits is enough for a while.
Absolutely lovely. Don’t second guess, just go, you won’t regret it.
Food is excellent. The servers are professionals but seem very unhappy. Not sure why
This was a special place! Food was inventive and exciting. We had two diners with food allergies and the accommodated us with ease.
Came to Le Coucou the night before our wedding. Wow...we ordered the Quenelle de Brochet, the Crépinette de Volaille au Foie Gras et Fruits, the Filet de boeuf and the Omelette Norvégienne. The Quenelle and Filet (those oxtail potatoes were delicious!) were our favorites. This is a wonderful date night/special occasion location.
I have been to this restaurant several times and it is just marvelous. The people are so friendly and anxious to make the experience a total pleasure. I live on the upper east side so it is quite a trip for me and my friends or family but it is well worth it. Friday's peach dessert was absolutely delicious....and the cheese assortment was equally great. My guests loved the oysters and sweetbreads.....and were very pleased with the wine recommended by their server. I can honestly highly recommend this restaurant and commend them for the excellent job they do of maintaining a very high quality of everything--food, service, etc.
My husband and I were looking forward to dining at Le Coucou, as we have been trying to get a reservation for over a year! What a disappointment. The restaurant is lovely, the service was impeccable, but most of the food was awful! Perhaps it was our choices of food, but 3 of the 4 meals were not as good as we would have liked.
Last night dinner -queen Elle de brouchet, champagne caviar sauce, dick for 2 with good grad, peaches & cream to finish. Perfection
Unfortunately, this restaurant was definitely not worth the repeated attempts to make a reservation. Both I and my work colleague were sick after lunch at Le Coucou last week. And the interesting part is that we ate different appetizers and different entrees. Both of my dishes were average as far as taste; they were certainly not outstanding. And of course, feeling sick to the stomach a few hours after the meal was not something that was welcomed by me or my guest. So I would suggest that the kitchen review their cooking methods so as to spare other guests of a similar, or worse, experience.
Excellent intimate lunch place . Memorable lunch with my daughter
Incredibly attentive service, modernized french classics and excellent preparations + beautiful bar and cocktails.
Staff is knowledgable and accessible — not stuffy or aloof like some other french restaurants.
Menu is curated and succinct and I absolutely love the coucou illustrations — adorable!
