What Insiders Are Saying
For your next special occasion/fancy night out dinner in SoHo, consider the French fine dining at Le Coucou.
Excellent! Wonderful menu with new inspiration on French Classical. The duck for two is a must!
We continue to go back to Le Cou Cou because it is some of the best French food in NY. The quenelles are spectacular, as were the crepinette and the sweetbreads. Dover sole Veronique was the best preparation of this classic that I've had. And what a great dessert chef- the Vacherin and the Omelet Norvegienne capped off a great anniversary meal. We try to go at least once a quarter, and haven't been disappointed in the years its been open.
Stellar food. Outstanding service. Had very high expectations and was not disappointed!
Dining at le Coucou was fantastic. The dishes were exceptional and we were thrilled that they had a wonderful vegetarian option for one of the members of our party. Thanks for a wonderful dinner!
Beautiful decor and typical French atmosphere and service. The lobster appetizer was stunning but my halibut entree was disappointing. I only ate a few mouthfuls. Bland garnish and oversauced. Wine list was superb.
Excellent meal. Enjoyed the Seared Duck and the lobster salad. The Pear cocktail was amazing.
Superb. Perhaps the best restaurant in the US. Certainly the best in NYC. Expensive but price to value is very good compared with other top NY restaurants. A place to return to often for new exciting and creative cuisine and wines.
Everything was perfect
Best place for a Sunday lunch or a Date night. Reservations are needed. Food and service were impeccable. The wine list out of this world. Can't wait to go back.
Very,very good...of course expensive.. the hostesses are not very friendly for a restaurant of this caliber.
Beautiful setting and amazing food. Can’t fault really!
Great for a date.
We typically eat at West Village restaurants (Buvette, Via Carota, i Sodi) but the reviews for Le Coucou were so compelling that we had to try it. The month wait for a reservation was worth it. It is the best restaurant we have been to in NYC. The decor is beautiful; soft lighting, rich and welcoming. The wait staff is superb and very friendly and helpful, although there are so many they tend to hover more than we’d like. The food was inventive and delicious with a great presentation. Le Coucou is a bit expensive but well worth it.
One of the best meals I have had this year. Went for lunch with a client. Food was spectacular. Would return just for the quenelle in champagne buerre blanc or the sweetbreads in a tomato fondue. Absolutely
Lovely dining room. High-end dining for special occasions. Vast, expensive wine list.
My steak was undercooked and the accompanying sauce very salty. Raw oysters ice cold and excellent.
We just loved this restaurant. Beautiful decor, cozy and intimate and the service was impeccable. The food was delicious and prepared to perfection. It is worth the price to dine on fresh, beautifully plated cuisine and to have the wait staff treat you like family.
We enjoyed our appetizers more than the main courses.
The food was so delicious that we practically licked the plates/bowl clean before we allowed the server to take them away.
The dinning room decor was elegant and classy with open kitchen concept. Love the bar set up!
The service was impeccable and friendly.
Will recommend for people for date night or celebrating special occasion!
Nice atmosphere but the food doesn’t worth the money!
It was the second time there and the Sweet Bread and the Halibut was as great as I remember them the first time, it's wonderful to have dishes served in pots and pans, the other fish dish was exquisite according to my friend, we had a beautiful table by the busy kitchen, only issue that I can think of it that it is a complicated process to get a reservation, I tried before late spring and gave up. On these two other occasions, a friend of mine got a reservation through Open Table (?) Best Anders
Le Cou Cou exceeded my expectations in every way!
Every dish was well prepared and exceeded my expectation
Simply stunning. Dynamite food, preparation, ambiance... can’t say enough nice things. Didn’t catch our server’s name, but she was funny, knowledgeable, and more than willing to help you through any questions that arise.
A friend that works in the industry recommended Le Coucou, and I assure you after my experience tonight, I’ll be back for more. Not to mention, I will be dreaming through the night about the tarragon broth that accompanied the most tender sweetbreads ever.
Oh. Here’s a pic of the eggplant terrine that blew my socks off as well.
Absolutely out if this world! In the top ten of best dinners ever.
Memorable dinner with my wife
Nice place, good service, average food, not worth the price. My wife and I were really disappointed as we were looking forward to trying this place given all hype.
Went to restaurant for lunch. It’s a lovely
place down to the last decorated detail. The bar and bathrooms were especially well done. We had a table near the open kitchen. Although the kitchen tiled walls are beautiful, I’m not sure that I liked the table location ( I thought the open kitchen fad had gone away in restaurants) and tables were close so we could hear every word of couple’s conversation sitting beside us. There is a front room that is a better location. The food was a miss. I had fried veal head for first course. It was a breaded deep fried croquet made out of tasteless meat/glutenous /fat bits and accompanied by a diced green tomato which just tasted very acidic. Would have never put the two together. Salad (extra cost) was uneventful and my main course was ground up chicken formed into a ball with a piece of gamey foie gras in the middle , surrounded by mashed potatoes and pineapple . Husband had beef tartare. Chef must be into grinding up meat. Bread was average. Service ok. Don’t need to go back except maybe to sit inlovely small bar area for a drink.
Very special food.
Everybody was down to earth and professional from the hostess to the manager. Would recommend wholeheartedly.
A restaurant experience doesn't get much better than this! highly recommended.
Le Coucou did not disappoint. The food is excellent and the service outstanding. We will be back!
Great cozy spot tucked in Soho. Excellent breakfast spot. Quiet and cozy.
I indicated in advance that we were celebrating a birthday. At the end of our meal, which started around 20 minutes late as the place was very busy, we were not even offered a complimentary piece of chocolate as the two ladies at the table next to ours. We did have a sweet treat, which we paid for.
Went with my wife and her parents for her birthday. The quenelle was excellent as was the duck. I wasn’t blown away by the rabbit but it was good. Desserts were fun and their vanilla ice cream is amazing! Wine recommendation was good as was the dessert wine especially the cured apricot pairing. Nice ambiance, not too crowded like many nyc restaurant table layouts.
My favorite restaurant in NYC. If I had the money I'd eat here at least twice a month. The service is always spot on professional, friendly and knowledgeable. The food has yet to disappoint, I find myself thinking about a sauce from there often. Thanks again for another great meal!
we really enjoyed our dinner at le cou cou. service was very good, and food was fabulous; particularly the tarragon and tomato sauce on the sweetbreads. the filet with marrow sauce, accompanied by the oxtail potatoes, was absolutely delicious. we also had the duck for two - memorable! wonderful, albeit pricey, meal.
Great experience. Dined alone and wasn’t made to feel rushed whatsoever. Easily my favourite restaurant in town!
Excellent food, excellent service, lovely ambience
Excellent epicurean experience !!! The whole restautant concept is meant to appeal to all senses and does not disappoint.
Wonderful food in a gorgeous dining room, always beautifully presented by knowledgeable staff.
