Great service great food

Service is very prompt, selection for brunch is good and food is very good. We are pleasantly surprised to find a little boutique restaurant in an area more renown for indian cuisine. Greeted with polite staff and promptly introduced us to some must tries. When food came and we tried we were very satisfied. Desert selection is also great. Overall fantastic experience. Will return.

Decent food but bad service.

I've been there to Cocotte thrice myself but I do have to say that the recent visit to Cocotte has left a bad taste in my mouth.

It was my aunt's birthday and we ordered the charcuterie board, escargot gourges, roast pork collar (M), beef bourguignon (M) and their signature chicken that I really liked before and that explains why I recommended this place in the first place. 

I ordered their chicken in advance and it came slightly pink and bloody. Now, there has been much debate about whether the color of the chicken indicates how well done it is but the fact remains that we, as customers, were slightly uncomfortable with the blood and requested to have it cooked again. As simple a request as that was, the waiters and restaurant manager insisted that it was cooked and when we had to get their attention again, the restaurant manager offered to microwave the entire chicken for us. We were shocked to have heard that our chicken would be microwaved! I think what was more shocking was how defensive the restaurant manager was towards us and even left midway during our conversation. There was no sincerity in the service at all and we felt that they didn't even value us as their customers.

We didn't take the chicken in the end and left really disappointed and frustrated. Sad to say, I will not be coming back again.

Hi Cailing,
We would like to sincerely apologise for the poorly handled situation on our part. I understand your concerns and the frustration with the situation and we have educated our staff on the proper handling of the situation. We do apologise that this was not done and resulted in a misunderstanding and the defensive manner it was presented in by our staff further escalated the situation. Your feedback is very important to us and has been shared with the Cocotte Team. We are training our service staff to better our service standards. We acknowledge that as a practice we cook our chickens slightly pink, however please be rest assured that they are perfectly safe for consumption. We understand that everyone has differing preferences and some diners prefer their chicken to be more cooked. We respect your personal preferences and in this instance the chicken should have been cooked further to your liking.
Yours Sincerely,
Yan Goh

Good food and ambience but terrible service

The good part was the food was wholesome and tasty. 7 of us shared the roasted chicken, sea bass, and the medium portions of the pork collar and beef bourguinon. The ambience was lovely too. It has a retro/industrial vibe that is all the rage right now. Unpretentious home style dining where food was served in pots and on chopping boards. Charming. 
Unfortunately, the service was so bad I would not visit again. For the price ($60+ for main dishes), the staff should have better training. 
the web site had advised that we preorder the roast chicken otherwise it would have a 45 min waiting time. I did one better and preordered all my dishes and was told on the phone that the waiting time for the food would be about 10-15 min. Despite that, we waited a good 45mins for any of our dishes to arrive. We asked the waiters to check several times but the waiters never got back to us until we had waited 40min for our food and the other table that arrived about the same time as us had finished half their meal. Then, we were told the food would take another 10mins. The roast chicken only arrived after 1.5hours. Completely unacceptable by any standards. Plus I had pre ordered! We also had trouble getting the attention of any staff even though we were at the main round table in the centre of the restaurant. When we asked for the dessert menu, the waiter only gave us 3 menus for a party of 7 and we had to share even though there was a stack of menus available. Finally since we waited so long for our food, we were the last table to leave but even then we had trouble getting the attention of the 4 waiters who were deeply engrossed in clearing cups at the counter.

Hi yumsinmytums,

Many thanks for your feedback about your experience at Cocotte. We appreciate your feedback and have taken the time to look into the matter.

It is to my understanding that your guests arrived earlier than the reservation time and upon arrival our service staff has kindly enquired if your party would like to start off with some appetisers. We were informed to wait for the last guest before serving the dishes hence the delay in the serving of food.

Kindly allow us to extend our apologies if there was a misunderstanding on our part with regards to your intentions and we do hope that this experience would not deter you from returning. We hope to be able to welcome you back to Cocotte and to better your impression of us.

Warm regards,
Yan Goh
Poulet roti

great food, ambience and service

The waiter mixed up our table seating but she quickly reassigned us to another table that we were happy with. We ordered the Signature Dish 'Poulet Roti' in advance but we still waited for around 30 min to be served. Nonetheless when it arrived, it was quite worth the wait. The aroma filled the air and the meat was juicy and succulent (even the breast meat). The sauce was great and we asked for a second serving, which the waiter was happy to provide. The potato was creamy and crispy on the top with melted cheese. The serving is good for 2 which works out to be around $30++ per person. Fairly reasonable though the other dishes on the menu seems quite expensive. Great experience.

If you happen to be in the area....

....you might want to try this restaurant located in an inaccessible part of Little India. It is at the end of an extremely busy one way street with very limited parking. If it weren't for the car that fortuitously pulled out of a lot right in front of us, we would have gone somewhere else. There was a small open air carpark further up the road, but, needless to say, was utterly full at 630 pm. The restaurant has old school decor which some might find charming but overall, it was fairly inoffensive. We had the Pork Collar and Steak Frites. Thumbs up for the pork but the steak was undercooked and had to be sent back. The dessert, an ice cream bisucit sandwich was very nice though and almost made up for the poor showing with the steak.

Hi Ro,
Thank you for your feedback of your recent dining experience at Cocotte!

We understand that it might be slightly challenging to find car park lots along Dickson Road and should you be visiting for dinner, we do have complimentary valet service available for all Cocotte patrons.

We apologise that your steak was undercooked and will take note of all future orders and hope to be able to welcome you back at Cocotte in the near future.

We have just recently re-introduced brunch on weekends and do come by to give it a try as our chefs roll out a trolley full of special savouries and sweets at intervals for diners to pick from.

Warm regards,
Yan Goh
