Everything was delicious. Fluffy light homemade boudin, fresh head cheese , yummy macaroni . Don't miss the bacon pralines for dessert. Not real fancy. You order at counter then get a waiter when seated. Small place. At peak hours you may not have a seat.

Been there with my friends. Had to wait for the table since we did not book in advance. We had a bottle of wine outside while we were waiting. Atmosphere inside and outside was great, customers relaxed and happy and friendly staff. Food was delicious but the portions were a bit too small. Also it is expensive but definitely worth... More

The food was so amazing we went back again. The restaurant was recommended by our Segway Tour Guide, Kathy. I had not ever heard of Boudin and she said that Cochon had the best - Boudin is a type of sausage made with rice. I was so happy to try a NOLA dish. It was good! Everyone's food was fantastic....

I was in New Orleans for a convention. Got take out twice. Charcuterie plate was a good sampling. Ordered BBQ the next visit which was also excellent.

We didn't make reservations, but it turned out to our advantage as we sat at the Chef's table and it was absolutely amazing. The food was mouthwatering and my husband and I enjoyed every minute. Call to make a reservation as they are not on Open Table or No Wait apps.

This place is really a fun spot for lunch! We were at the National World War II Museum and wanted a more authentic NOLA lunch than the restaurant there provided. Walking only about a block and a half takes you to some great restaurants nearby that are packed with locals at lunch. Both our choices were great, but the Pic... More

The food here is outstanding. Everything is fresh and the flavor are outstanding. I had the Le Pig Mac which was big, juicy and flavorful. My wife had the brisket sliders which were also very good. We split the Mac and cheese which is one of my wife's favorited. The only negative was the homemade chips. When I opened the... More

Cool restaurant, good food, but try to either go early or get a reservation, it gets really, really busy!
