Impressed by pretty much everything here and really want to go back for more. Some really good food that is well thought out and very well cooked and delivered. The service was attentive, friendly and helpful - a restaurant that has pretty much everything covered. If you're in Portland, this really is a place to relax and enjoy great food and drink and friendly and helpful service.

We stumbled onto this restaurant while staying in the Albina neighborhood on a recent visit to Portland. It turned out to be a favorite, even drawing us back for their small plates on Sunday night. We arrived without a reservation, but "no problem," the staff quickly offered us options, we sat outside and it was delightful. The pork and rabbit rillett was the perfect starter...simple but packed with subtle flavors. Thee in our party ordered the special, ling cod....it prepared perfectly, with just the right top sear . Sturgeon is a fish we never see in our midwest city, so when one of our party order this, we all savored the flavor of this fish. We loved the food so much, we were back on Sunday night for small plates, and we were not disappointed....a burger made with sausage and chicked, cooked medium rare with yummy fries! Some of the best fries we have ever eaten. But both nights, there was one individual that kept it all together..Chadwick! He was waiter, bartender, and overall just kept everything and everyone on track. We so enjoyed his special touches, unique cocktails, good conversation....he is key to the success of this great little restaurant...(PS..and the madelines are to die for)

Tucked into the Albina Arts District, this French-inspired restaurant is an unassuming neighborhood gem. Full of windows, you feel like you're entering a Parisian bistro and can see the team of chefs cooking away.

There is a full bar and a good selection of wines from around the world. We began with the pickle plate and chicken liver mousse. The pickled items are all made in-house and are full of flavor without being too intense or vinegary. The presentation of each dish was lovely and appetizing. Artful without being too delicate to dig into. I had the king salmon with French lentil and English pea salad... it was AMAZING! My foodie companions had equally wonderful dishes of cod and sturgeon respectively. We shared the chocolate mousse dessert - a delicious concoction that is incredibly dense. I'm not sure any one person could eat it alone.

Cocotte is perfect for a dinner with friends, parents, or a date.

Happy hour is a great time to taste the wide variety of house-made items. The pickle(d) plate included fennel, carrots, radishes, pickles, and squash. All were excellent. The crust on the mushroom tart was exceptional. The chicken liver pate was butter smooth, garnished with dried cherries, mustard and pickled onion. Delish! Entre selection is limited, but each item showcases seasonal ingredients. Service was attentive and just friendly enough. A real delight.

We went with 3 other couples. Our table was ready when we arrived, which was nice. We shared three appetizers, which all were generous in size and excellent - particularly liked the varied preparation of the escargot. We also thought the pate was excellent. The restaurant has an extensive wine list as well as specialty drinks. All of us enjoyed our entrees, except for one - the day's fish special, which unfortunately came out very undercooked and was quite disappointing. Our server apologized and the item was taken off our check. The house special - cocotte was enjoyed by two at the table and the pork loin was also delicious. Overall a pleasant experience. Would definitely return.
