    Sushi was excellent but the tapas and cocktails were awfully overpriced for the quality. Gyoza was clearly pre-frozen.

    Nice place but there was a big noisy table the night we went so that made it a bit less enjoyable. Good food though but the wine prices seemed a bit high. We’ll be back nevertheless, Eric

    As a chef, I'm really keen on what I eat, and what I discovered tonight was awesome. Food and service were great. Some elements could have been improved in the menu (as a personnal choice) but the chef came and he was keen on spending time with us and listen to our comments in order to improve his menu. Special mention to Sara for her attention and recommendations. Will definetly come back to try the rest. If you're looking for real sushis, don't bother looking for an other place.

    Très bon service, la nourriture était excellente. Je suis déjà passé lorsqu'il y avait une terrasse en été. L'équipe et le concept s'est renouvelé en améliorant l'ensemble des plats. Les sushis étaient délicieux et très bien réalisés. Nous avons aussi testé ce soir la nouvelle carte bistrot et je peux vous dire que le magret Teriakyi et le Tataki d'espadon valent le détour.

    Food was amazing. Menu items sounded to tasty and interesting, so we shared 7 or 8 starters and grilled items among four of us. Loved everything. (to name just a few - Chicken Karaage, Chicken and Beef Yakatori, and Kokofrites) Portions were perfect for sharing. Beautiful ambiance with great Japanese/Manga art really added to the experience. Service was great, very attentive and patient. Staff and Chef are very personable and took time to speak with us at the end of the night. Would definitely return.

    Hello! This was our first time at Kokochi and the food was really good although quantity was really light. It is not a place to eat dinner but rather apetizers. We were three and received most of the 10 dishes we ordered with 2 skweres each time... And we did not feel full when we left... Still, nice discovery and excellent service by the team! we migh come back!

    Service professionnel et sympathique. Ambiance agréable dans un joli décor. Carte des cocktails et des plats changeante propice aux découvertes. Nous avons eu beaucoup de plaisir en famille et avons apprécié ce que nous avons mangé. Le personnel est très gentil avec les enfants. Prévoir 2-3 plats par personne pour un repas. Pour les gros appétits, la facture peut monter vite avec les cocktails, mais ce n'est pas nécessairement plus cher que des restaurants équivalents sur le plan de l'ambiance et de la nourriture.

    Decor is nice and service was great, there is good music and good a good vybe. Food was not good, we had the fried chicken, seafood sushi, pork gyoza, we didn't order anything else because all tastes very bland. Sushi had minimal rice with roughly chopped pieces of fish which really didn't look or feel very fresh, chicken had nerves in every piece, dumpling were okay. As far as drinks go, very very sweet drinks, what was supposed to be a sweet and sour cocktail tasted like one of the premade cocktail mixers you can get at the grocery store. Bottom line, if you're looking for a nice spot to have a beer you'll enjoy it, just make sure you eat elsewhere.

    If you like the drinks or small portions of food, this is a good place for you to catch up and chat with friends. However, we went for dinner and the dishes were very, very small and not worth the price. It also tasted alright, it wasn't the best. The music was loud, it was very hot, and the waiter kept ignoring us even though we were waving right at him. Aside from the amazing decor, there was nothing else I really liked about this place. I would not go back.

    Food was great! The OpenTable app should inform people that the kitchen closes we got there at 9:10-9:15 and the kitchen was closing real soon so we ordered a little in a rush and wished we had more time to choose. Great food great service overall!

    Was expecting more quality ingredients and a taste that was more refined. This isn’t a bad restaurant, but it left me indifferent. The decor is nice but the meal needs to be upgraded. Nice staff, friendly. Decor is pretty nice. I won’t go again however. I’ve had way better quality sushi at this price range. On a positive note, the eggplant was good!

    We had reserved for 4 at Kokochi Friday night and as soon as we arrived we noticed how chaotic it seemed. We were sat down and given menu and then 30 minutes passed and no one came to see us. We had to ask a waiter to come take our drink orders and we asked for appetizers. We received appatizers another 30+ minutes later. When we finished no one came to ask us if we wanted food or any other drinks so we asked the waiter to place our meal order. After waiting over 1:30 our order never came. The waiter came apologizing and saying that the kitchen lost it. We couldn't wait anymore so we asked for the bill and left. It's unfortunate because the appetizers tasted great but our experience was ruined.

    I was really looking forward to going to this restaurant and ended up disappointed. First they forgot my drink order and I had to go up and remind them but to be fair they brought another drink which they comped. After an hour of waiting for my food order I finally had to flag down the server to find out what was happening, then about 15 minutes later it showed. The chicken karaage was good the ocean roll was meh. Not sure what was going on but for the money I paid (even with a comped drink) it wasn’t worth it.

    I thought the food was good and the service and decor great. My only gripe was that it felt like the sushi was very little for the price (even for a tapas place). Would have loved to experiment and order more if each article on the menu had 1 or 2 more pieces. Also not new to izakayas/tapas and love them. Just surprised at how little it was for a date.
