Inconsistent Food – Can by good for a simple dinner, but their problem is that the food is inconsistent.
I had the steak burger about a month ago and it was great. Had it again tonight and it was aweful. Ordered as medium rare, it came out very well done.
Our guests ordered the salmon burger and it was just as over cooked and not edible.
The Manager came out, asked if we wanted it re-made. Appreciate that. But when we said "no" since we had limited time, she just said "ok" and walked off. Not impressive.
At the end of the meal, I had to remind them to at least take one of the items off the bill.
good food – I really enjoy the salmon burgers at Coho, and they have great happy hour menu, I have been a dozen times. I would reccomend this restaurant for the food but not the customer service, a lot of the staff seem as though they don't want to be there.
Gone down hill – I have ate with a group of 4 to 6 friends, monthly to bi-weekly, at Cohos throughout the past year, at least once a month. I like the service I've received and the restaurant has a nice touch.
Their first mistake was to get rid of the Tiramisu for no good reason. A group of us went to Cohos just just for desert. Ever since they got rid of it we have never ordered desert. I guess we are spiteful.
More recently, they stopped giving bread! Seems pretty ridiculous. Now I feel cheated.
Needless to say. Our group is going to start going somewhere else.
Great food and Employees – I love eating at the Coho Cafe!! I like the fact that their food isn't just sesfood! My favorites are the rib appitizer, the steamed clams, they have a very hearty grilled chicken club and tasty coco prawns with a lime dipping sauce. There is fun salads like the Asian chicken or seafood chop. Also I love the yummy deserts aswell, like the berry cobler and lava cake! i love it all and I alway anticipate my return! The staff is friendly and seem to all try really hard to work together as a team. I can always find someone to asnwer my questions, bring bread or any other needs. Plus to top it all of thee is a terrific bar that serves happy hour twice daily. I love this place and admire how hard the staff work here. Those of you who write complaints about a none 5 star experience are the kind of people who don't see the greater good in the efforts put out from these staff members and have different opions on what can be considers as "the perfect meal". Even if the food wasn't the best I ever had, if there staff is friendly and attentive then they deserve more than a fowl tempered degenerate bringing them down. If you haven't seen the movie 'Waiting' then you wouldn't understand... "DONT BE AN A-HOLE TO THE PEOPLE WHO HANDLE YOUR FOOD"
excellent food, extremely excellent staff! – I went to the Coho Cafe in Redmond last Saturday around 4:30. Honestly, I couldn't be more pleased or impressed. My friend and I were immediately greeted by an extremely friendly hostess, who seemed to go out of her way to make us feel comfortable and accommodated. She even got our drinks started, and later helped serve our meals. Our server was very attentive, but never intrusive. Any and all questions we had were answered with ease, and it was very clear he knew the menu well. We started with the crab tower, and ceviche, which were both refreshing and delicious. I chose the seafood fettuccine, which left me full and satisfied. My friend chose the macadamia prawns from the new promotion, and almost licked the plate clean. The pineapple banana salsa definitely made that dish. The menu has something for absolutely everyone, which is excellent for picky eaters. Our drinks were never empty, and our dinner was timed to the tee. I would definitely consider myself a happy customer. There is a clear sense of teamwork at Coho, and I fully intend to return for the staff alone! It's just an added bonus that the food is delicious and reasonably priced. I fully recommend this restaurant to everyone, unless you've got a hearing problem...because it got fairly noisy. I look forward to my next dining experience there.
Thank you so much for taking the time to let us know how we are doing! I?m glad that you had such a good time We have a really wonderful group of people working with us that truly care about our guest. They will be absolutely thrilled to hear about your experience and appreciative of the fact that you were willing to write about it. I will make sure to pass this on. Thanks again, Steve Price President / Partner
Great Food & Great Service – I've been frequenting this restaurant for about 3 years. The food and service are always great. The atmosphere is usually pretty busy which makes it fun! They have a nice variety of dishes and everything has always been outstanding. The service is ALWAYS excellent. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
It's really nice to know that we've been deliverying the kind of food and service that has been keeping you coming back for the past 3 years. Thanks for being such a loyal guest and for taking the time to let us know. I will pass this on to the wonderful people that make it all happen, our crew!
One of our favorites – One of our favorite restaurants not only for the family and large groups on Friday evenings, but for causal drinks with our friends. Great fire place outside. Amazing alder wood smoked salmon. Really nice servers. A wonderful place. You just don't get these kind of places in Seattle...
For the great comments we really appreciate it! Glad to see you can make it to east side every now and then. Hope to see you soon from all of us at the Coho Cafe.
Preferred Restaurant in Redmond – My husband and I have been dining at Coho's for many years and can't remember a time we didn't enjoy our dinner, lunch or Sunday Brunch. Comfortable atmosphere. Rarely has the service been anything but outstanding. The menu offers a nice variety of delicous food and good sized portions. We expecially like the Chef's Special's that change with the season. On many occasions the chef will communicate with the guests about their dining experience . Service is great!
We want to thank you and your husband for being our guest for so many years. It?s been a pleasure serving you and your positive comments mean the world to us! We hope to see you again soon. And thanks again from all of us at the Coho.
Highly Recommend the Coho in Redmond!! – I have worked at Microsoft for the past three years and this is our weekly restaurant to meet at for one-one-ones, morale events, and with my family. The food is fantastic, the staff is very friendly and engaging, and I can get cheap movie tickets for the Bella Botega Theater as well! I have had few issues in the years I have been going to Coho, and in those instances management quickly stepped in and took care of us, making it is very positive experience. I highly recommend the Coho in Redmond.
For being such a wonderful guest over the years. It?s a wonderful business to be in but it?s the people like you that makes it so pleasurable! We also would like to give you a special thanks for letting us know when things are not right. This really helps keep us keep close to our guests needs and focused on the areas that need improvement. We?re not always perfect but if we ever miss the boat you know we?ll fix the problem and make it right! Thanks again from all of us at the Coho Cafe
Fantastic Restaurant – 5/13 I had a fantastic experience at Coho. I opened the door and was immediately acknowledged by the smiling hostess. She remembered me and said ?Your friend is already here- Let me take you to your table.? I sat down and seconds later the waiter (with a great attitude) came to grab my drink order. Last time I was in, the manager suggested a new dish called the Cevicha Tostada. It is now my favorite dish now. Our drinks were never empty, our waiter was never far away when we needed him and our food was spectacular. Even the manager stopped by to see how the food was!!! This restaurant functions like clockwork. Other employees will fill your drink up even when it is not their table.
A special thank you for making this a GREAT restaurant experience for me, my family and friends?
Denise- amazing customer service skills, great up seller and great problem solver
Todd- great with anticipating customer needs and delivering in a timely fashion (5 star quality service)
Josh ? very professional when waiting tables- good listener
Meredith and Cali- never without a smile and great attitude & team camaraderie
Eric- Always is creating new tasty dishes- keeps the menu fresh
If someone asks me about this restaurant, on a rating of 1-10, I would give them an 11. Actions speak louder than words, and we have been going there for 6 YEARS, roughly 3 times a week!
