Being new to a town it's nice to try out the local restaurants. Unfortunately for all the other spots, we tried Cocoa Pesto first…and they have set the bar very high! We've been back several times and always try something new. It's all excellent! Great atmosphere, great service and top notch food. Highly recommended!

Stopped here after an afternoon of tidal bore rafting. The restaurant was busy - but the wait was not long. Service was great and the food was excellent. I'll be back!

Special Thanks to Marilyn and staff who helped to make our 20th anniversary evening so very special. Our daughter and her husband took us out to dinner and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening complete with candles in our crème caramel dessert. Thank You Cocoa pesto!!!

Cocoa Pesto did the catering for my recent wedding and I cannot rave enough about the food!! I had guests coming up to me all evening and texting me for days following saying how awesome the food was. From the very onset of hiring Cocoa Pesto, Scott Geddes, the chef/co-owner was very accommodating of my dietary restrictions and those of... More

Food was well prepared, especially the sesame salmon. The service was good and attentive. Only negative was listening to dripping of water into a bucket from a condensation line. But the food certainly made up for it.

My husband and I received an invite and coupon at the Avondale Bacon Fest (yes bacon fest!) and decided to drop in for dinner on our way home. We had a table for two by the window and were delighted with the atmosphere. We enjoyed a beautifully presented and delicious meal. Hubby went for pub fare - wings and fries... More
