What Insiders Are Saying
For your next special occasion/fancy night out dinner in SoHo, consider the French fine dining at Le Coucou.
Really fabulous night
Great ambiance and great food: French classics modernized, we really enjoyed. Our sommelier let us down on the ( expensive) wine recommendation. Hence the service low rating. Service from the hostess lake courtesy and warmth on the phone and on arrival as well.
Absolutely amazing experience. Second time celebrating me and my wife’s anniversary here, never let us down!
Great service and food. We came for lunch and will be back the next time we are in NYC.
I had a 10:15 breakfast reservation, for which we arrived on time. After we had been given our menus, our waitress came over a couple minutes later and asked us if we were ready to order. We had not even looked at the menus and were told that we had to order ASAP as the kitchen was closing for breakfast. The waitress literally stood at the table and waited until I told her we needed more than 30 seconds to decide. The hostess should have told us that there was a time constraint when we arrived and also the waitress when she gave us our menus. No one wants to feel rushed during a meal unless they themselves are in a hurry, especially at this sort of restaurant. The restaurant should not accept reservations past a certain time if they have time constraints. Had I been informed of this, I would have made an earlier reservation.
Pancake a bit change from last time.
Love the atmosphere here and the creativity of the dishes.
A serious place, and one of the best lunch deals in town at this level.
When you go to a restaurant, you are thinking about the food that you really want to eat. You are looking for the perfect flavor, color and texture that you want in your meal. In this case, my case I was amused for the quality of service in this restaurant, it was speckless.
Otherwise my dinner wasn’t what I was expecting.
“Agneau du Colorado en Deux Services” I pictured this meal all day in my little trip to the city, until the moment that I had my first bite. Lamb is a difficult protein to cook in perfection; in this experience the flavor was messy, strong and over cook, that it made me miss the flavor of the Lamb, grease and bad clean of the bone made my plate looking without color and texture.
The question is, when you are going to eat in a Michelin restaurant what are you looking for? The best service? Or the best bite of your life?
Unfortunately I just paid for the speckless service no for the food.
So delicious. Such gracious hosts and wait staff. Can’t wait to come back. Better than eleven Madison
Everything is great except the birthday dessert. Only marshmallow and chocolate.
We went for brunch on a Monday... We should have suspected that it would be very - too - quiet. Only three tables were occupied in the restaurant. We ordered a traditional breakfast, which was very good, but were offered extras without the waiter specifying they were extras... I am usually very conscious of this kind of tactic, but he was very subtle about it... I don't like to be taken advantage of. All in all, a good breakfast, but not worth the money.
We have visited on several occasions. It's always great...but this time was phenomenal. One menu choice looked better than the next, so I decided to let Ryan select for me. He did a fantastic job. Can't wait to go back.
Back again and plan returning often , Love everything about Le Coucou
Loved everything about our dining experience.
Delicious food in a beautiful setting with impeccable service. Perfect for a special occasion.
Food was very good and service was outstanding
Great overall experience starting with the staff at the front. We had a 10 minute wait but the bartender came right over to offer us a couple drinks while we waited and the drinks were amazing. Once we got seated, our waitress took over and she also did an amazing job making us feel very comfortable. She explained the menu in detail and made her recommendations. Our appetizer , Entree and dessert were all amazing. I highly recommend Le Coicou
My daughters has the best time due to our table location and we able to interact with Chef. What a wonderful night!
Well performed and beautiful cuisine, really flavorful experience!
The space is beautiful, especially the bar when you first enter. We went for lunch on a Saturday and really enjoyed the ambiance,. The furniture is worth mentioning, comfortable, elegant and fitting to the space. Food was on point, great wine list.
Went there for breakfast on a Saturday - great atmosphere, quite and good service. Generally very good value, too bad they had run out of pancakes...
Amazing place! Magical and unique!
One of the best dining experiences I have ever had! Perfect way to celebrate my birthday; everything from our arrival with the warm host team to our waiter Ethan’s patience with our questions made it exceptional! Can’t wait to come back :)
Our waiter reminded us that we were there a few weeks after they opened years ago. When a restaurant like Le Coucou gets so much attention and accolades one wonders if they begin to rest on their laurels: they haven’t. The food continues to dazzle. My rabbit dish and reimagined escargot were simply outstanding. So delicious.
Excellent. Food is executed very well and service is absolutely top notch. Beware that this is real French food and depending how you order is on the richer side.
Service and food was excellent!
Looking forward to having another great meal soon.
Le Coucou continues to consistently offer perhaps the best French cuisine in the city. Along with excellent service, authentic dishes are executed to perfection.
Food is great! Service is great too and we enjoy our meal with our two girls
Stunning representations of some French classics with some creative flair added. This restaurant brought back memories for me, a serious spot.
Brilliant food, exceptional service and beautiful interiors
Everything was fantastic, from the food to the beautifully made cocktails. Every detail of Le Coucou appeared to be well thought out.
Service was sufficient, food was mediocre, restaurant was beautiful and the attitude was pretentious
Amazing staff and such delicious food!
Where can I buy the candles that were on each table?
They didn’t drip and so they were perfect!
Ioved our evening at ale zcoucou
We have eaten in the finest restaurants, the most recommended and hyped restaurants in the city. If you are looking for perfectly executed delicious French cuisine. This is the place. Worth every penny.
Food was okay. Service was also just okay. Ambience above average. Overall I felt this place was a little pretentious.
