don't go if you like good service 5/26/2009

never felt compelled to write a restaurant review before but the total lack of customer service at this spot is such a blower. i had to wait an hour for cervice and got nothing but ATTITUDE from the waitress and manager. wasn't even looking for a freebie, just some customer service woulda been nice. i've been about 4-5 times in the last year and the service has gone from bad to atrocious. it seems they have one waitress and she has gotten real big while her customer service has gotten real small. if you feel it would be a privelege to go spend your money with some jerks who don't appreciate it, knock yourself out but otherwise, i'd skip this spot. Pros: good cervice, food overall good Cons: you'll wait hours for it more

My go-to restaurant for a group 11/28/2008

Never had a bad dish here, but some are better than others. Wine isn't great but cocktail menu is unusual with good Mojitos. Paella is very good and Chicarron as a main course is superb, and survive well as delivery. Salsa Criolla is addictive. Husband is a big fan of the rice pudding. Pros: Massive portions, good for groups, cocktails Cons: Some menu items only average, choose a fave and stick to it! more

Horrible experience 6/10/2008

My girlfriend and I went to Coco Roco on a Tuesday night and waiting an hour for food. Despite the food being below average at best they had one waiter for the entire restaurant, and one busboy. Very much like the other woman who reviewed the restaurant, we got not explanation or apology. I understand if someone called in sick or whatever but you need to explain delays rather than simply ignore. At the end of the meal I waited 15 minutes for check which never arrived. I actually borrowed a menu from the table next to me and calculated my own bill and took off. I would never go to this place again other than perhaps to tell them how much of a dump it is. Cons: all more

Fine food, really terrible customer service 5/11/2008

I don't like just blasting a place for one bad experience, but nothing upsets me like really rude customer service. My boyfriend and I went for weekend brunch. After seating us and taking our drink orders, they let us know the kitchen was running behind despite the fact that the place was half empty, but took our orders anyway. We waited an hour for our food, during which time no one came to check on us or let us know why there was such an extreme delay. When we asked to speak to a manager he refused to offer any discount or even a complimentary drink for the wait. Even more annoyingly, no one apologized or even acknowledged the inconvenience. When it finally arrived, the food was good, but we won't be going back after being treated so poorly . more

underrated 2/8/2008

I have been to the one on Smith st many times, with friends and with my boyfriend. The food is always good and the service has been excellent. You can't beat the prices for the quality of food and wine. It's a really cute place , good for groups and couples. I definitely recommend it. Pros: prices are inexpensive Cons: could be cozier more

Good brunch deal, though not very consistent 11/20/2007

When we came here first time for brunch, we were very imressed. You pay $10.50 for the fool brunch. I didn't want alcoholic beverages, so they happily substituted them first time with dessert, and second time with soup (which was excellent!). My husband had a skirt stake and loved it. We came back to the restaurant again next week, but did not like it much. The food and the deal was the same, but, for some reason, it did not taste as well... Pros: brunch deal Cons: inconsistency more

Bad experience for a friend 11/14/2007

A friend of mine went to this restaurant for Lunch. Needless to say that after eating his tasty meal (because yes the food is good) a small rodent on four legs fell onto a table from the vent up above. How disgusting is that... not to mention that the rodent just stood there on the table. more

Great Peruvian 9/15/2007

Awesome salmon!! 4/9/2007

Coco Roco was my first experience with Peruvian food and it was delicious! I've had better Sangira, but we enjoyed it nonetheless. I ordered the salmon and spinach mashed potatoes - amazing! The salmon was absolutely perfect, and the mashed potatoes were creamy and had a very unique flavor. The service, while friendly, was a bit slow and scattered. Our waitress was very nice, but she miscounted the number of orders and we were short one plate - it came out about 10 minutes later, and she was very apologetic. It was a bit difficult getting her attention for more water, and then for the check - even though the restaurant was relatively emply. Regardless, we enjoyed the overall experience and will definitely be returning to sample other menu options! Pros: Delicious food, very nice ambience, could easily be a great date restaurant Cons: Slow service more

Service at brunch is a disaster 8/31/2006

I like Coco Roco's food, and the brunch deal is especially good, but the service at brunch ranks among the worst I've ever experienced. Orders come after long waits to the wrong tables--and one of our dishes never came at all! The strangest thing is the management doesn't seem to care. Complaints are met with an indifferent shrug. It's made me not want to go back for brunch or anytime. more

Don't go when crowded. 8/25/2006

A few dont's - don't order any type of paella - I've had better out of the box. Don't go when crowded, because the inexperienced wait staff can't handle the volume. And when you wonder what happened to your credit card after ten minutes of waiting, don't expect an apology from the manager, because you won't get one. The Churrasco Coco Roco (basically, steak with chimichurri sauce) wasn't bad, even though they gave me a medium steak when I requested rare. All in all, we were glad to leave, and see no reason to return. Pros: Eager but inexperienced waitstaff. Cons: Most everything else. more

Fabulous Food, Service & Mojitos! 7/8/2006

I've been to this restaurant several times and it just keeps getting better. Wonderful food, marvelous service, sensational mojitos and the setting is simply lovely - indoors or in the garden. The food I've tasted so far - seafood only so far, eventually I'll get to the steak or chicken but the seafood continues to surpass my expectations. Definitely head here for a great meal and wonderful drink. It's happy hour in the early evening, so it's 2 drinks for 1. Just go and enjoy. Pros: Food, service, drinks Cons: Not a single one! more

New Name, Same Great Pisco Sours 4/30/2006

Coco Roco occupies the space that Cholita filled until its unexpected disappearance in fall '05. While the service is still a bit touch-and-go (friendly but slow), the food remains excellent and an incredible value for the price. While Smith Street has a number of good options for Latin-style cooking, this one is the best for authentic South American cooking. Hopefully this restaurant will have better luck than its predecessor. Pros: Good Drinks, Great Prices, Garden Cons: Slow service more
