Le Coucou was outstanding in every way. Beautiful space, with great lighting and generous spacing between tables, which allowed for easy conversation (at normal volume) at our table. The food was traditional in style yet creative and perfectly executed; truly delicious. Save room for dessert, which was exceptional. Service was superb: attentive and professional, but not hovering. With wine, this is an expensive evening, and easily worth it.

Third visit to le coucou, wonderful as usual with one caveat. The table behind us was extremely loud. It was apparent to us that the staff was unhappy with their behavior as well. I continue to give 5 stars in the hope that reservations will be monitored to maintain the pleasant atmosphere we have experienced in the past.

I don’t know if I would recommend Le Coucou for breakfast. It was such a huge let down with some breakfast dishes not being available.
Two weeks prior I had gone for dinner which was an amazing meal and experience.
Breakfast was the total opposite of dinner.

Everything was amazing from start to finish.
I just wished our server was a little happier that day and at least try to smile. The food was delicious and ambiance was just right.

What a wonderful dinner. Delicious food, stunning presentation, enchanting space. Erin the sommelier was amazing. Can’t say enough good things about Chef Rose’s latest jewel (I was a big fan of Spring in Paris). Can’t wait to come back!

Host, seating and ambiance were fine.
Service was unpleasant to say the least.
We ordered the tasing menu and the second dish was so heavy that we couldn’t enjoy anything else. We asked whether we could take the dessert to go and they told us ‘nothing travels’... I thought, we are not going overseas just within the island ...not accommodating, we couldn’t even finish the bottle of wine that was definitively overpriced over 100, not value there. Bottom line, poor choice of appetizer on their side after telling me it was the lightest thing in the world...it was the heaviest I’ve had for a while.
The waitress was quite unpleasant and sarcastic. This place has negative value considering the prices vs. service and food. I can live with mediocre food but service is the core of going out to dinner. Thumbs down.

Gorgeous and romantic dining room. Food is fabulous. Excellent wine suggestions and pairings from the staff, and the Maître D' is one of the best in Manhattan. Look forward to many returns.

Went for lunch with a business colleague. The interior decor is spot on. Subtle and spare but precisely executed. The service however was seriously lacking. We had the feeling that we walked in after a staff meeting and everybody was on the receiving end of some disciplinary action. We didn't expect fun and lively but we also didn't expect a funeral. Perhaps it was just timing but if we go back it will be for dinner.

Delightful evening celebrating my birthday. They do a great set menu option of 4 courses which not everyone needs to order so you can get one set menu and one appetiser and one main for two people and share the other two dishes - means that you taste more flavours but don't leave feeling like you ate too much! Delicious!

Only reason I didnt give a 5 star review, is that the lobster came lukewarm and not hot. Great taste, great service, great ambiance

The restaurant is very pretty with landscape wallpaper and large chandeliers, and was full during our meal. Service was excellent, and our waiter even suggested a short wine flight to go with our lunch choices. The wines and the food were very good. We enjoyed a leisurely lunch without being rushed and it appeared that many of the other customers on that pleasant Saturday did as well.
