Koko is our go to. Small little restaurant, and everything is made very fresh. Our waitress was great and knowledgable. It's nice when wait staff really care about what they are serving and understand tastes!

I’ve been to this place a dozen times. It was off the other night. I think it’s under new ownership or someones new in the kitchen. I’m hoping it’s not a trend.

We reserved early in the day with a reservation for 4. We arrived on time and were told that our table was not ready. The restaurant is small hence we had to wait outside. Once we were seated (10 minute delay), we were given our menus and the server did not return for 20 minutes, which was a forbearer of the level of service for the rest of the evening.


We also noticed that the décor was getting tired looking and the restaurant needs a refresh.


The food, however, was delicious and nicely presented. The black cod dish is exceptional, their sashimi is fresh and generous, and their bibimbap was done to perfection.

We have been regulars at Koko great several years. It seems the portions have gotten smaller and the prices higher. Food quality has also gone down. The seafood wok toss tasted off.

We are regulars there, and usually love the food. This time, however, the spinach salad was mediocre and the cod was bland and unexciting.

We had a reservation which they mishandled, the food was tasty but portions were very small for the price we paid. $200 for 4 with one drink each. Not good value compared to similar asian restaurants in the area. Will not return.

Although Koko Share Bar's basement location is unassuming and décor basic the food and exceptionally friendly staff make this a great place to stop for dinner. The sushi is always fresh and the Bibimbap always comes out sizzling. A sampling of creative starts and salads round out the menu.

I had the pleasure of dining at KoKo on Sunday evening. I arrived ahead of the email from Open Table to the restaurant, but they accomodated me with a smile. The menu had some standard Japanese dishes that you would expect, but the Korean influence as really pleasant! In particular, the Kimchi pancake is a definite repeat for my business trip next week.

Notably, at least half the clientele were on a first name basis with the restaurant staff/owners(?). There was a genuiness to the exchange, hugs included.

The restaurant also accomodated a larger party while I was there too, seamlessly.

Great experience.
