Pretty pretty good food in NO. My family and I enjoyed the charcuterie and Creole mains. It's hip and a great place to enjoy a meal. Drink selection pretty good and the staff professional. I would go back here.

Just visited this restaurant last week while in New Orleans after hearing many great things about it. I was not disappointed! My guest and I had many small plates including the grilled oysters, barbecued shrimp, and Boudin Balls. We also had the Bucherie platter, and my guest had a Catfish dish. Everything was exceptional, keep up the good work.

Normally, a reservation would be required at Cochon but we hit at just the right time and 5 of us squeezed around a table for 4. We had the gumbo, beans and rice, catfish, fried pork cheeks, braised short rib with white bbq sauce and the wood fired oysters. All of it was excellent. Dessert was equally as good with... More

Recommended by the hotel concierge, this was our best surprise this trip. An easy walk from the WWII museum, we had great service and some of the most unique food ever. I had the smoked ham hock with fried chicken livers as an appetizer. Make reservations if possible

Our intention was to visit Cochon Butcher but we neglected to, quite literally, turn the corner and ended up here...we were NOT disappointed. The chile butter baked oysters were insanely good - tangy, unctuous, velvety...just amazing. The mushroom salad topped with fried lemon slices, beed jerky and vinaigrette was light and flavorful. To top off the meal we enjoyed a... More

Drama free: Service: all our staff were characters in a good way. Genuinely interested in you enjoying yourself and your food. Food: The ribs. One of the best things I've ever eaten. DO NOT skip the ribs. Salty, sweet, hot, smokey, tender, meaty, succulent, lovely ribs. Justifies being an omnivore. Fried chicken was 105% worth the wait. Space: The restaurant... More

Not only do I love the food but the service was perfect and warm, not fake friendly. The oysters, the crawfish...everything was perfect. And we went the next day to their butcher next door and brought home the best muffaletta we have ever had. I can't recommend both places more.

This restaurant is so hip and the menu is creative. Our service was exceptional and the waiter went through any and all menu questions we had. I highly recommend the wood-fired oysters. My husband and daughter truly enjoyed the fried alligator. The appetizers come out on small plates so it's not overwhelming and won't ruin your meal. Enjoyed the chicken... More

Every dish is packed with layers of delicious flavors - solid preparation and top-shelf service. This time we made the mistake of not making a reservation for lunch, but it turned out to be a wonderful mistake as two seats at the kitchen counter opened-up just as we arrived. Not only did this afford a front seat view of the... More

My husband and I ate lunch at Cochon. We started with the boudin balls. The breading was very good. The boudin itself tasted good, but was a little thin and too moist. My husband ordered the cochon which is pulled pork shaped into a patty and fried. He said it was good, but not worth it's price. I ordered the... More
