Loretta Keller's new south of market hotspot brings in the crowds to enjoy its warm, modern vibe and bold, stimulating flavors. Italian glass tile, Douglass fir, chocolate tones and rich teak finishes set the mood in this 1906 wood structure that anchored the corner of Fourth and Brannan as Bizou since 1993. The restaurant's commitment to high quality, small production ingredients begins in the kitchen, extends through the wine list, and forms the foundation of the new-fashioned bar. Cocktails at COCO5OO are handcrafted utilizing organic ingredients - fresh squeezed juices and premium, small production spirits.
I've only had one experience but it was enough to make me decide not to return. The food quality is decent but not exceptional. Prices are ok but serving size relative to price is not. Staff is less than helpful. Nothing special here at all.
Coco500 is one of my favorite SF restaurants! The fried green beans, truffled mushroom shortbread, and marinated flank steak are just a few of the many delicious eats they offer. Their food is always fun, fresh, and creative!
We remembered our experience at the old Bizou fondly--the fried green beans were delicious, and we returned to the restaurant many times for them.
Went to the new Coco 500 last night. Green beans were soggy and undercooked. A glass of wine at $10 was less than 4 oz., and the capellini with ahi tuna appetizer at $13 was literally one forkful. $45 bill (before tax and tip) for 1 $10 Manhattan, 1 glass of wine, one swallow of capellini, and a fried green bean appetizer.
Poor value for the money--if you must go, don't go there hungry.
great for a lunch meeting if you just need to go somewhere a little different. my organic roasted chicken, arugula, blue cheese, apple, grape cheese was spiced and delicious. the cornmeal fried oysters were divine. it was a windy, rainy day. i parked in the alley behind the restaurant on 4th street. we were in and out in an hour. make reservations as it was full. it is chatty, but not too loud that we couldn't discuss work. we were in close proximity to strangers.
Surprisingly, the food was even better than what we expected. Each dish had its unique flavor. The flatbread was amazing, drinks delicious, and desserts to die for - Vacheron is a must-have. Fun for small group to share great food and fun cocktails.
Before trying Coco 500, we heard about the challenges with service. (They were right). So this is half of the problem. The other half is the unspectacular food. We first started with a nettle & potato soup which was bland - it had the consistency and flavor of salted cream of wheat. Wine selection is tolerable. Next arrived a plate of 'bread' which, in addition to being refrigerator cold, was dry and simply had to be leftover pillsbury dough. The pasta was fine - but again, nothing special. With so many other restaurants to choose from, don't waste your time here.
