Cocotte is a South-West French rooted restaurant with accents from the Basque Country. The fusion of the strong basque identity with the French “savoir-faire” has made the South-West of France a gastronomique terroir and way of life both for food and wine for centuries in their most natural and simple ways. Cocotte’s goal is to bring this way of life to your table with carefully selected products on your plate, into your glass, and around you.

The entrées were amazing but the main was rather disappointing. The chicken was bland. The skin was very seasoned but it didn't seem to have come through the meat.

The food was simple, elegant, and amazing. Full of flavor and a real enjoyment. Service was excellent & helpful. It was crowded (on a Tuesday!) but that didn't slow them down one bit. Will absolutely be returning.

Positives: Incredible food. I can recommend the Basque pork, the fresh salads and the moule. Cozy atmosphere. Service extremely helpful and friendly, if a bit slow. Negatives: Not vegetarian friendly. A very limited menu. If that doesn’t bother you, you will love Cocotte.

My husband and I have eaten at Cocotte several times and try to get there whenever we visit NY. On our latest trip we went for brunch on Saturday and had the pain perdu (a very different kind of French toast that was a bit like bread pudding) and the BEC (bacon, egg, cheese). Would recommend both. And as always, the staff was friendly and enthusiastic

Nice neighborhood spot with delicious cuisine and friendly service. Basque food is a real melange of cultures so you will ind something you like on the menu. Everything we tried from the boquerones to the lentils to the scallops was delicious and thoughtfully prepared. It's a bit snug, but that's my only complaint.

I've been periodically dining at Cocotte since it opened about 6 years ago. In the beginning with its proprietors on hand with one usually behind the small bar, it had the feeling of intimacy and personal charm to match the small garden level space that drew me in both spontaneously alone and with one or more friends. On my last three or four visits within the last year, though, I've felt a shift away from the personable intimacy toward a not necessarily even pleasant detachment on the part of the waitstaff. Even the familiar chalkboards on the walls have now disappeared while the waitperson two nights ago had no recollection of the longstanding high-temp skillet-seared vegetable 'salad' that was a staple on the menu while the host(esses) were, from the outset, intent on our understanding we would have to be done in 90 minutes to make way for the next reservation (that actually didn't show). It's a subtle shifting that I hope the restaurant will arrest before it goes the pedestrian way of the neighborhood as a whole toward simply upscale outdoor mall that could be in any urban district across the U.S.

The food is fantastic, the service is good, but the place is small and seating somewhat cramped. On a Tuesday night it was deafeningly loud, which is something I try to avoid.

Delicious meal, cozy room, attentive and friendly service. I had scallops in a light and slightly sauce with a side of roasted Brussels sprouts. My friend had fish in a tomato with peppers sauce. Good wine selection. Already told my N.Y.-area children about it. Recommend highly.

We’ve now been a number of times and each meal has been fantastic. Truly exceptional food combined with wonderful service in a warm and upbeat ambience makes it hard to beat and one of our favorites. I’m excited about new updates to the menu, as after 4 visits I feel like I’ve fully explored their options. You can’t go wrong.

We went there for the first time. It's a very small restaurant with French/Spanish cuisine. The bartender, Jean-Laurent is very attentive and super nice. He makes you feel like you are a regular and treats everyone like a friend. I thought the food was outstanding- I had the braised beef dish and you could tell they had simmered down the red wine reduction for many hours. It felt like my grandma had cooked it, not fancy but just genuinely great food. Not sure about the drink menu as I only drank their beer from the Basque Country (Northern Spain). It's called Moritz and is absolutely delicious. I will definitely keep this place on my list....
