“Great dining experience!”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

Great food and service made for a memorable dining experience in the San Juans. The owners do an awesome job of making sure you have a wonderful experience. The place is small, so I would definitely make reservations.

“Include Coho in Dining Plans”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

We enjoyed a wonderful meal in this small but elegant restaurant in downtown Friday Harbor? All courses were excellent and the halibut was special.

“Delicious Food in a Diminutive Dining Room”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

The Coho restaurant dining room is the former living space of a small bungalow house. Accordingly, there are only about 8-10 tables. We found the food to be very good relative to other dining choices available in Friday Harbor. All in our group of 3 ordered fish, which was of high quality and prepared exactly right. The appetizer and main course dishes were prepared with skill,and featured fresh local ingredients. All in our group were pleased with their choices. The wine list allowed for a nice selection without breaking the bank.

Depending on the size of groups seated, the small dining room has an initimate feel or can be noisy and energetic. For most of our dinner, tables were occupied by 2-4 patrons and we had a very pleasant and initmate atmosphere. As we completed our meal, a group of 10-12 was seated and the the noise level rose considerably, making for a very different dining experience. If you're looking for an intimate atmopshere, we'd suggest you ask whether there are large groups being seated the night of your reservation. Either way, we expect you won't be disappointed by the food.

“Nice restaurant, average food”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

Service was really good, but the food just wasn't exceptional. The tuna tartar was a very small portion and didn't taste all that fresh. The pork was good, but not exceptional. It would not be my first choice of restaurants.
