I went here with a group of ten during my school residency. We obtained a reservation on a Friday night with only one hour's notice. The restaurant was small and intimate. The service was top notch- friendly, going out of their way to take pictures...More

Step in and you'll find yourself in a bistro tastefully laid out in shotgun style--tables along the wall on your left, a couple of booths on your right, and a small bar at the back. We immediately got the impression we were in for a...More

Fantastic little place for brunch & lunch. We had fantastic omelette and the best risotto I have ever had. I'd drive out of my way to eat hear again. Atmosphere is cozy and service good.

Friendly staff, intimate bistro. Tried Koosh pasta, full of mushrooms, excellent. Friends had caesar salads, good. Daily soup had lamb broth and nicely spiced. Would go again.

I have been here a number of times and been super satisfied every time. Lunch is a great option if you find the prices too high. Most lunch size pastas are $10-15 and it includes salad or soup. I'd recommend their soups to start! If...More

There are so many great choices for dinner on Koosh's extensive and impressive menu! Finally our orders included Bailey's chicken and veal piccata and beef stroganoff risotto and a pasta dish. Everything was very good although not quite excellent. In my case, for $30, my...More
