Coco lezonne - disappointing

food for life Oct 8, 2008 12:58 PM

A few weeks ago, my girlfriends and I had dinner there.
I havn't been back since the blackout-5 years ago.

The restaurant was so dark, the waiter had to give us a mini flashlight just so we could read the menu.

There were six of us, and not one of us enjoyed our meal. One friend prefered her ceasar salad over her lobster ravioli. "Wheres the lobster".
Another friend ordered the special, blackenend steak, salty.

The rest of us ordered a variety of pasta dishes. It was so bland, first we asked for fresh cracked pepper hoping this will do the trick.
We then asked the waiter for some chilli flakes. The waiter must have thought we liked our food spicey, yes but not bland.
The chili flakes helped somewhat.
We didn't want to take a chance on the dessert.

I can understand if one dish was off, but the entire table.
Perhaps the chef had a cold.

    Or perhaps it's a lousy restaurant. Thanks for the heads up.

      I don't think I've had a decent meal at Coco's in the last 6 years. It used to be good once upon a time.

        I read the OP, and I thought, Oh, my God, I had the lobster ravioli four years ago, and I had the same reaction. Lobster MIA. It's beyond me how that place has stayed in business for so long. I recall my waiter being fairly pleasant, but the food itself was utterly unremarkable. I think that the clientele has more money than taste buds.
