    We felt taken care of from the moment we walked in! All of the servers work together to make sure their patrons are taken care of. My husband and I love trying new things and this menu was perfect! We will be making another trip to try more!

    Perfectly wonderful ambience - chill and the staff were knowledgeable about the cuisine and about customer service. As for the cocktails - balanced and adventuresome (not so complicated your palette looses track of the experience). I strongly suggest you sip on the cocktail with Japanese whiskey as a key ingredient. The food was very good - Veal couldn’t have been better prepared, the Peruvian stew featured perfectly prepared scallops and shrimp. Also, is you have a sweet tooth, don’t skip the tres leches - decadent and worth it!

    Everything was Louisiana Local, fresh, and expertly recommended, prepared, and served. Our server, Andrew, was attentive, intelligent, detailed, and charming. Top tier service. The offerings from virgin cocktails through the appetizers all the way to dessert were exceptional. Zero complaints, and we were genuinely blown away by the fact that everything we had was EXCEPTIONAL. Details: Drinks- Mexican Coke and Zero Proof virgin cocktail Appetizer- Cachapas Entrees- Market Seafood dish (best salmon EVER) with black rice and veggies, and the Vegan Roasted Lasagna. INCREDIBLE. Dessert- Tres leches and vegan chocolate ice cream. Both decadent and delicious. Don’t sleep on this fantastic spot!

    Quite simply, one of the finest restaurants to visit in downtown Baton Rouge. Nice menu selection. Good cocktails, albeit a little pricy. Wine menu borderline expensive. We come to Baton Rouge for the marathon every year, and this is one place we eat at every time. I had the grilled Elk, and the wife have the duck breast. Both were excellent.

    The service was impeccable! I had a nice Southern Bourbon cocktail that tasted like a whiskey sour to drink. For starters I had the tomato pepper soup and then the vegetable lasagna for my main course. All of the food was deliscious! The soup was well seasoned and full of vegetables (very filling). The lasagna was so creamy but not heavy and it eas served with a side salad., I thoroughly enjoyed each dish. Unfortunately I had no room for desert.

    Love this place, but the seating is very uncomfortable, it really takes away from the dining experience… a place of this caliber should have seating that is comfortable for an hour dining experience… not cheap hard surface seating that is designed for 15 minutes in a cafe…

    It was a great night as always! The food was very good and the atmosphere is always nice. They had a guitar player this time who was very good but a little too loud to keep a conversation while he was playing. Otherwise I would highly recommend Cocha any day!

    Our 24th anniversary and all I can say is AMAZING! Enjoyed the braised pork cheeks and salmon tartare for appetizers. She had the catch of the day, which was a Pacific NW Grouper. Very flaky and. clean tasting. I had the Ribeye. Cooked perfectly and also hand trimmed. Wine collection is vast and probably one of the best old fashions I’ve had. Definitely will be back. Gonna try the Elk next!

    We ordered the charcuterie board. It was good but could have been much better had there been more bread/crackers. It’s just like like a bunch of random cheese bites and the meat was a bit tough.

    Amazing! The service, food, drinks, and vibe were all incredible. There was a parade downtown during our reservation and we were sitting outside. It was fantastic being able to watch the parade while we ate. The staff offered to move us if we would like to avoid the parade, but we were loving our front row seats. This place is wonderful and a fantastic date night spot!

    Cocha is a good restaurant with a Latin fusion theme and a great wine list. I had the Thai bean soup starter, and it was great. I also had the grilled octopus, and it was ok. The dish had a bean and sausage sauce, which I thought made a poor match with the Mediterranean-style octopus. My wife had a salad and Korean ribs which she liked but was not crazy about. Portions were small. Our server failed to tell us all of the specials--we only found out by overhearing another server at a neighboring table after we had ordered. I'll go there again in the future with the hope of experiencing what I have experienced in many prior visits.
