People raved about this place so I went for dinner with my husband. I thought it was just okay. Food was decent. It's a nice meal but it's nothing amazing. I wouldn't go out of my way to go again.

We have been wanting to go to J. Coco for a long time so tonight was the night. Made a reservation on Open Table and were seated right away. The service was attentive but not overly so and the food was fabulous. My husband had the Salmon Remoulade and I had the Braised short ribs - both were outstanding. Be... More

This is always a great experience for us. Amazing food, great cocktails, nice wine selection, friendly staff. The sea bass is a must, and the calamari is unique (not typical breaded and fried) the addition of salsa and avocado are great. Daily specials are always enjoyable.

We ordered a Cubano, Cobb Salad, side of Mac and Cheese and a cup of soup. I asked for no mustard on the Cuban but when it came out it had mustard on it. My wife's Mac and Cheese also didn't come out with her food. They fixed the Cuban and quickly brought out the Mac and Cheese and we... More

We sat on the patio for dinner and loved it, it was cozy and the food was delicious! It started to get a bit cold so we headed inside and sat at the bar. We had so much fun talking with the different servers and the owner Jenny who is incredibly friendly!

We went to j. Coco on a recommendation from a friend-she did not disappoint nor did this restaurant. We called for a reservation-upon entering this beautiful little place we were immediately seated and was brought water. Our waitress came to our table to take our drink order and to let us know the specials-they all sounded wonderful. My husband had... More

Ate here while visiting our son and daughter-in-law. The portions are huge. Everyone loved their entrée. We were seated promptly (I recommend a reservation) in an uncomfortable booth. Son is 6'5" and had no leg room and complained about the back. Our server was friendly and came back often to check on us. I think any item on the menu... More

I stopped here for happy hour with a friend, we had two different cocktails and both were really good and we had the tater tots, they are highly recommended. The bartender was really nice, she was really quick, knew a lot about the cocktails and recommended the tater tots. I can't comment on the food other than the happy hour... More

Love this restaurant! Great menu! Love the pork taco appetizers and had a fabulous wedge salad! Main dish was sea bass and had lots of crunchy veggies and was in a miso sauce. Loved it! Small, intimate and noisy! Its known for being noisy so we were expecting it ! Loved the peach cobbler for desert!
