We really like Coco's, whether for lunch or dinner out on the town. They change the menu a few times a year and we always look forward to what new items they add. One of our favorites and go-to places in Dayton. They also do a great job for small/medium size groups in the private dining rooms. Outside dining is... More

This is the second incarnation of a very popular restaurant. The menu is limited but there is something for everyone. I've had good results with the ahi tuna and red snapper. Service ranges from fair to good. Nice spot.

We went back to Coco's Bistro. One of our favorite date night getaways. We started with the hummus appetizer which was very good. We then had our salads that came with the entrée. The homemade beet thousand Island was good. The herbed butter and fresh bread was excellent. By this point we were full and had not even made it... More

We reserved the private room for tonight and it was amazing! The man who seated us, I don't know his name, was incredibly friendly and knew we had reserved the room for our mother's birthday. He made sure to tell her happy birthday when we arrived and when we left. Our server, Nikki was amazing and did an excellent job... More

Restaurant is cavernous, no sound proofing so the space resounds with the sounds of lonely echoes. Bright spotlights pointed directly at you. But it could be the table we were sitting at. Cocktails were not bad. Service was friendly and excellent. The food was subpar and really expensive. Duck ramen promised soba noodles, for $32 I got over cooked cold... More

Food, drinks, and service all very good. But the owners should pay attention the the hostess who is your first impression of any restaurant. She was dressed in a white Sears t-shirt, and blue jeans that were two sizes to small.

I went with an office group for a Christmas lunch in one of the private rooms. Our server was very nice. He was efficient and timely, especially for a group of 16! The food was very good but be prepared for a little sticker shock. Fine dining at it's best but be prepared before you go. I knew the prices... More

From the food to the service and experience this is my new local favorite! We started out with a glass of wine, bread, then a salad. The Italian dressing was a good choice. I ordered the fried chicken with the mac and cheese. The fried chicken is drizzled very lightly with a honey sauce which you may choose to get... More

Since the closing of Olive last year, this is where we take out-of-town visitors for a memorable Dayton meal. While the greater downtown area has a number of interesting places for dinner, this is one of the few open for lunch. The menu includes tasty dishes that will not be found in chain or fast casual restaurants. Service is prompt... More

Went here with friends. It was tasty and unique and the staff was willing to work around special diets. And to portions were very generous!

You'll always feel welcome at Coco's. We're a Dayton Original, an independent restaurant where you can have your power lunch, a rehearsal dinner, a fun night, or a place to propose. You'll enjoy contemporary American food, always with amazing service, and reasonable prices for wine and spirits. Thank you Dayton - we love you as much as you love us.
