The food here is great if a little different, you choose several small dishes from the menu, the waitress suggested 3 each, we chose 2 each including 1 salad and that was plenty for us, the 3 sausages were large and very good. Desserts were...More

Dined at Coda tonight. Wholely unimpressed. House made sausage was a great. Crob cakes small and modest flavor. Reason for the visit was the lobster and grits. We didn't know grits were a soup, I've had better Cream of Wheat. Service left a lot to...More

Coda was recommended to us and we went with great expectations and were not disappointed. Smoky butternut squash soup, Caesar salad, scallops, crab cakes with yummy dressing and a sweet treat cookie in a hot skillet finale. Outstanding waitstaff added to a very nice meal.

This is a great place to relax and share small to medium sized tasty dishes. The quality of the ingredients is exceptional and the eclectic set of plates is fun. Some dishes are exceptionally salty however. Their house made sausages are excellent.

Lovely space and ambiance. The problem: the food is meh, really. I would go for a drink at the bar (good beer selection, although they ran out of our 1st choice the night we were there) and then get a pizza from Little Notch!

We visited Coda after a recommendation from our Kayak guide. And he did good! The food was delicious, all house made which really made all the difference. We were at Havana the night before and this was just as good. The prices are also reasonable...More
