A wonderful experience of modern French cuisine! We are not so much into fine dining, but here you can feel esteemed even without being a wine connoisseur! High recommendation!

Having dined at Spring in Paris, I was familiar with Chef’s talents.
Having heard raves from friends,
I was excited about dining at Le Cou Cou and was not disappointed.
A starter of quenelle was exquisite and my lobster main course as fine a preparation as I have had anywhere in the world.
2 minor quibbles- the wine list was filled with expensive young wines and the soap in the washroom was too strongly scented.
But I look forward to a return visit soon.

fabulous French Classic Menu . 3 guests ,so we sampled 8 items .
all very very good . not the creme de la creme -but outstanding .
highly reommnend, Bar noir de nos côtes, saveurs Basques* and
Quenelle de brochet « Route de Reims » .
Snapper à l’espagnole* was a bit of a disappointment .
i know , a cliche , but would love to have seen , escargot , blanquette de veau ,
and les oeufs a la neige .
incredible lunch value !

The best filet we have ever had, and we have had great ones. We had a two course lunch and the food was delicious, the presentation was creative and gorgeous. The cocktails were unlike what you’d find anywhere else. If you love food and a pleasant atmosphere/service, then make this place a priority. Six stars.

Beautiful restaurant. Excellent service. We had the prix fixe, and we shared the duck for two. The sauces were reduced and flavorful. Overall very good but very pricey as well. Nice choice for a special occasion.

Le Coucou exemplifies fine dining. Expensive $49 lunch prix fixe but worth it. The cucumber soup, the BREAD, any chicken, lemon tarte - all outstanding. I was a bit disappointed in the quenelle. Tasted more of egg than fish but I’m being picky. Perfect service, especially the charming sommelier. Gorgeous room. And great bathroom music.

Thank you to your team for such a wonderful breakfast celebration for my husband's birthday. I can't remember the last time I enjoyed breakfast as much as I did yesterday! Our server, Alicia, was especially kind, and attentive. The food and service were top notch. The restaurant itself was beautiful and it's clear the team takes pride in what they do. I can't wait to go back!

Service and ambiance was excellent.

Food - much to be desired. The food is nothing great. Which is abad thing given that it is a 1 star michiline restaurant. Even the dessert was below par

The price would have been acceptable if the food was great.

We had some really wonderful food. That said, two of our dishes, the leek appetizer and the rabbit main-course suffered from too much vinegar and the rabbit in broth was bland. That is the only reason I did not give the meal a perfect score.

Elegant setting. The lunch plates were nicely presented but the food was undistinguished. Beef tartar is served ‘deconstructed,' but when mixed together lacks the punch of the classic dish. Sauce with tete de veau was sharp, lacked subtlety. Quenelle entree was pretty but lacked taste, depended too heavily on the caviar.

Le Coucou was an outstanding dining experience. The food, the service, and the ambiance were really quite perfect. Anyone who focuses on having exceptional dining experiences, needs to make sure they visit this restaurant. It is quite expensive, but worth every dollar that is spent.

Delicious food in a lovely setting! An adult place in which even the diners rose to the occasion by dressing a little more nicely than one often sees these days.

We went to NYC for our anniversary and I surprised my wife with a reservation here. These guys made sure it was unforgettable and incredible. The food is delicious and Incredible. The service was excelent. The ambience was elegant and refined. The wine recommendation was exquisite. The waiter who treated us was very kind and always had an excellent treatment (a young man with a mustache). I am very grateful for everything they did for our anniversary. Thank you.

This restaurant has a Michelin star?! What a joke. Clearly the inspectors never had breakfast here. Pompous and overpriced with lackadaisical service. We received an iced tea we didn't order and never received the gougere we did order until after our main course arrived, at which point it wasn't even necessary. The gougere was the only tasty thing though....both omelet and avocado toast were very bland.
