I had written a note to the restaurant in my reservation that I wanted to propose to the love of my life during our diner. We were celebrating our 10th anniversary. I had asked them a private and cute table for us to be sitting together. The went over and above to make this the most wonderful night of our life. We will remember this night for ever and they played a part in it. Amazing service, food and ambiance. They even offered us as a congratulations for our engagement a glass of champagne and desert. Thanks to the whole team at Le Coucou!

Absolutely gorgeous restaurant - incredible decor and ambience. Delicious and unique cuisine. Only drawback was the rather slow service (had to ask for check a few times). It was a business lunch and we all had to get back to work. Otherwise- wonderful.

Lobster salad was very underwhelming, service & ambience were fantastic!
Tip: don't order specials just because they have them on the menu! Get the popular dishes instead

Hands down the worst service I have had at any NYC restaurant, especially one that is this expensive.

The food was delicious as always. However, I would not suggest anyone dine with you with so many options nearby.

Le Cou Cou know how to roll out the red carpet. My son, his fiancée and I were lucky to get a last-minute lunch reservation. We were celebrating his upcoming birthday. Afterward my son told me that it had been one of the most fun times he’d had since he moved to the city a year ago. Superb food, service and vibe. Mmmmm.

The place is outstanding. The only thing that was disappointing was that they discriminated us from other customers in order to assign a table due to we were “open table”. We had to claim for a better table and they didn’t recognize our reservation petition.

Everything about dining at le coucou is well thought out, measured, and phenomenal. The service is perfectly attentive without being intrusive. You need not worry about being rushed. The food is impeccable and classic. And the wine pairings are nothing but perfect.

Service was rough. I was a solo diner at lunch in a half-empty room, but it took 15min between ordering my half bottle of wine and receiving it. They brought me the wrong first course. They cleared my glass while my half bottle still had 1.5 glasses in it. Perplexing.

Wonderful way to celebrate my birthday. Everyone from beginning to end was attentive. Over the years I have rarely found a bottle of wine not drinkable. As soon as I indicated that it was not ok, the wine sommelier offered another bottle. And it was excellent.

Definitely expensive, but worth it. A great place for a special occasion.

I really can’t say enough positive things about our dinner at Le Coucou this past Saturday. Evwrything was absolutely perfect. This was by far one of the best meals we have ever had. Our waiter and sommelier were so knowledgeable, kind and accommodating, they made it a truly wonderful experience. We never felt rushed, despite having 5:00 reservations. I wish I knew their names, shame on me for not remembering them. They both made our anniversary dinner so special. And the food is literally perfect. Every dish, particularly the sole and sweatbreads that our waiter recommended, was beyond delicious and beautifully plated. We had been here for lunch last year, which was fabulous, but dinner here is an absolute dinning dream. We can’t wait to go back!
