We lived in Japan for a few years, acquiring a taste for authentic Japanese food. Finding anything other than sushi can be challenging. We stumbled across Cocoro and have been back several times whenever we are in the city. Friendly service, great food.

This place is great for many reasons. The food is really good and the staff is fantastic. I really appreciate how quiet it is in this restaurant, unlike so many places where you have to strain to hear the conversation at the table. They always have specials. It's a true Japanese restaurant and usually a majority of the diners are Asian which seems to be a good sign. I would highly recommend Cocoro and would also recommend to try something there that you normally wouldn't try. Thumbs up to Cocoro.

This is a good spot for straight up Japanese food. They have a great selection of what you would find in most typical Japanese restaurants that cater to a Japanese clientele. A little bit of everything and all is done quite nicely. Can get a bit crowded on the weekends with big groups and the service could get a little slow. Recommend you make a reservation if your coming with 4 or more people on Fri-Sun. Beer selection could be a little better. Staff is very friendly and polite.

This was close to our hotel, The Godfrey, so we decided to walk for dinner one night. Delicious Japanese eats and service was excellent. Arrived around 7pm and did not have to wait for a table but as we were leaving around 8pm, about every table was full.

Excellent and authentic Japanese restaurant. Ordered the soba and that came with the sobayu so you know it's legit. Their dessert, black sesame pudding, was homemade and just flat out delicious.

My brother ordered Nabeyashi Ramen and he loved it.
