Changing my rating from last year

We continue to enjoy this place for lunch. They have many good choices of salads and sandwiches. We used to feel their dinners weren't nearly as good as their lunches, but we went for dinner this year with 7 people, and all enjoyed their meals. I'm changing my overall rating to 4 from 3.

This restaurant had over the top quality food and great service. They handle people with food allergies great. They can cook things in olive oil if you wish to. I had the whitefish and it was cooked perfectly and tasted heavenly. The vegetables and roasted potatoes were also cooked perfectly. The other people in our party had the steak and... More

Our family enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Coho. Three ordered fish dishes and all commented that the fish was mild and very tasty. I had a pasta dish that was excellent. Arrive early if you want a seat on the deck, well, any seat at all. This is a popular and busy restaurant!

Start off with a nice cocktail (rum punch was the special when we went) and savor the crusty warm rolls dipped in olive oil with pepper flakes and grated Parmesan while you wait for your entree. Recommended: locally caught white fish which is sautéed perfectly! Not "fishy" tasting at all. Served with lovely roasted red potatoes and fresh green beans... More

Went there for lunch our first afternoon in Frankfort. Love their white fish. Never fishy always yummy. Our waiter was so full of life and eager to please us. Great seats and their curtains were so Coho. Blue batik designs. In all a great start to our trip💕

Coho is always a great choice for dinner. Waiting for a table on the patio is worth it. Just wish the bar had a bit more room. Food is great and staff is very good.

The food is fantastic!! I had the hanger steak which was prepared perfectly over garlic mashed potatoes, excellent!! The seating outside was very comfortable and casual. It was screened in so we were bothered by bugs or too much sun, great idea!! Would definitely recommend, a little pricey, but well worth it!!

We went here with friends on a spur of the moment decision (we had reservations elsewhere but a storm knocked out their power in Traverse City, so we opted to eat closer to home). We didn't have reservations but were seated right away. We all ordered salads and loved them. I even tried our friend's roasted beet and kale salad... More

We've dined at the Coho Cafe at least once a year for quite a number of years. Our most recent visit was rather typical. The food was extremely well prepared. I had the whitefish, garlic-mashed-potatos, veggies, and a very nice glass of Chardonnay. My wife had a dinner salad that she found quite satisfying. The kids both had mac &... More
