“When I pay that much for a meal, I expect service and professionalism to match!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014

I am a very patient and tolerate person, and normally let a lot of things slide, this was beyond acceptable. Never have been approached by a business owner with such rude aggression at the simple request of not blasting the air conditioner so cold blowing directly on us....ya, the ones paying $55 a person for dinner and drink. I was shocked and had I not been in a business group, I would have gotten up and left right there. The service prior to that was horrible already. Why does it take so long to take a a simple order?? I understand the kitchen gets overwhelmed, but if the servers are slow, hire more help! The food was good for the most part, but based on the owner's obvious disdain for her patrons, I won't be back. Ms. owner, why are you wearing blue jeans to come to my table to pull a ghetto move like that?? It's about representing and taking care if those the help pay your bills. Ridiculous. You should be ashamed! Our table easily spent over $400 and you have the audacity to place your hand on your hip and talk to us like that? Consider this dinner a freebie....because we will NOT be back! Not to mention you pissed off one of the dinner guests who is know for her social networking career in building other's careers. I pray on your behalf that she doesn't think you are worth her time! Leave Cocoa's Bristro with a foul taste in your mouth, and sadly it isn't the food!

“Wonderful date night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014

We had tried in the past to eat dinner here but kept forgetting they were closed on Sundays. We finally made it and I'm glad we did. Friendly and inviting waitstaff. Good wine and drinks selection. Great salad with house made dressings. Our entrees (steak and shrimp pasta) were both perfectly cooked. We also got lucky because Thursday night's special is 1/2 price bottles of wine. You can certainly bring kids but remember there are more people here trying to have a special dinner so don't ruin it if your kids are "less than well behaved." Lunch Monday-Friday 11-2pm. Dinner Mon-Thurs 5-10pm Fri-Sat 5-11pm. They also open their bar area, called the High Violet Lounge, for some hours in the afternoon to fill the gap between lunch and dinner so call ahead and ask about that if you're interested.

“Coco's for good eats!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2014

Coco's is a downtown Dayton favorite! Love their new location. Indoor or outdoor seating. They also have a party room that can be closed off of their main dinning room. Great selection on their menu.Good food and helpful staff. Lots of room in a clean restroom.

We celebrated a birthday there last week and had another fantastic meal. The drinks were also great. We have never been disappointed there.
