    Experience was mixed: service/atmosphere was not commensurate with the stature of the restaurant; nothing special is the best way to sum it up. Many empty tables, possibly the result of the $25pp fee for canceling outside the allotted time, discouraging reservations. The pacing of the dinner resembled that of a diner. Food was delicious, however; just the service lacked the personal touch of a higher-end restaurant such as this one.

    A really tremendous Williamsburg dining option! Strong menu options with enough (but not too many) choices vs. the overwhelming number of choices or short lists of quite strange, limited options at so many spots. We loved it all (and especially the pan seared scallops with risotto). Also, service was fantastic!

    I genuinely don’t think I have ever experienced better service in my life (not at Friendlys, not at Michelin starred restaurants) than Renee provided at Cochon on 2nd. The food was excellent and the ambiance lovely, but Renee was on a different stratosphere of genuine friendly, caring, above and beyond service. Hard to put into words how wonderful she made a simple night out. Go here. Seriously. (And thank you, Renee)

    Reservation had 3 additional components- had to make a selection between price fixe and regular menu, notice of 3% charge to use credit card, and $25 per person cancel/ no show within 3 days of reservation. I acknowledged those conditions. Regular menu was not available when we arrived, we couldn’t cancel then because of the fee(4x $25). No descriptions on price fixe menu- nice server but did not accurately describe choices. Very disappointed in the whole expensive experience. The food was inconsistent. Nice appetizers but steer clear of the leftover , reheated ribs. Beef tenderloin was just ok- one very grisly, all were dry without enough sauce to help. Sides were not as described. We don’t normally get dessert but they were a part of the set menu and were good. Water glasses were always kept full, bread offering was fresh and delicious. It was a nice atmosphere but there are better options in Williamsburg.

    The food was excellent. Lamb rack was the best I've ever had. Our waiter, Sean, was very friendly and was at the ready to a answer our questions and provide excellent recommendations. Our meal was a bit pricy, but reasonable when considering the quality of service and food.

    Steak had no flavor . Why do some restaurants not understand the importance of marinate and seasoning. It accents flavor and makes the meat tender. 15 layer potatoes , joke no bigger than spoon. Best thing i tasted with flavor was the deep passion. Over priced

    The appetizers were incredible! We got both the octopus (beyond amazing) and soft shell crab special. Entrees were also great but the pork chop was the winner!! Duck was “good” but feel it needs a little TLC- it had more of a rustic umami flare and think it needed a bit more acid and sweet /rich fruit like cherries built into the dish. Still good though! But…… it was our server Jordan who made everything so perfect - she was fabulous!! Ambience was quite lovely and perfect for the experience 😎

    Fabulous dining experience from the cocktail to the last bite of my scallops. The tuna tartare was flavorful and a good shareable portion. The arugula salad was lightly dressed to enjoy the flavors of the ingredients. Scallops were prepared to a buttery perfection. I shared Thai gratin potatoes with my dining partner - they were incredible. Our server was knowledgeable and very pleasant. Definitely will recommend and return.

    Outstanding dinner Sunday evening with friends while listening to some live jazz. We opted to sit in the quieter Moody room with fireplace. The food was spectacular. A nice variety of offerings. Our wait staff was very attentive, friendly, and offered help and suggestions. We think this is the best restaurant in Williamsburg.

    We enjoyed the night out and had high expectations of the culinary experience. The food was tasty and well prepared but did not meet our expectations. Sides were potatoes, green beans, and carrots for all entrees, which was too basic. Apple relish for the pork chop was over seasoned and not tasty. Octopus was tender, and fried oysters were great.
