I got inspired to try Puerto Rican food thanks to Food Network's Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, so I googled Puerto Rican food and Coco came up in the results. Went to the restaurant and I was blown away by the food menu, drink menu, service and decor. Definitely try this place out... you won't be disappointed!

My sister and I went to Coco to celebrate my birthday. The menu is very eclectic and the food is very tasty and well prepared and the service was friendly. We enjoyed our meal and were completely full when we left the restaurant. If you are seeking for Puerto Rican food, this is a very good place to start. I recommend this restaurant.

Without a doubt, the worst dining experience of my life. We ordered food at 9pm, did not receive our apps until 10:30 and entres until after 11:00pm. While there are some good martinis on the menu, do not waste your time.

The interior and decor is elegant along with the inviting and intimate atmosphere. The menu features the finest in latin cuisine and every entree is perfectly proportioned leaving nothing to desire. Has top-flight food & exceptional personalized service, live band on the weekends which combined had no limit in over exceeding our dining experience and capturing the true essence of Puerto Rico. Special thanks to Maritza in my Opinion ?simply the greatest waitress for her patience, eye to detail, and GENIUNE concern!! CoCo?s you take dining/service/entertainment to a new level of excellence Chicago should look up to you!!

I went to Coco on Tuesday, Nov. 27th. It was by far the most outstanding Puerto Rican food I've had in years (of course, nothing compares to mother's cooking, though). Being Puerto Rican, I'm pretty picky when it comes to good PR food. This restaurant exceded my expectations by far. The food was excellent -- not overly-spiced or bland. The secret ingrediant to many PR dishes is garlic, and there's plenty in the food here, but NOT so much that you're stuck with heartburn. I can't wait to return to PR in Chicago!

Pros: Mofongo, service

Cons: parking is difficult, but that's NOT the fault of Coco

This review is coming fom a person that dines out to a huge variety of restaurants. CoCs has a unique twist to Puerto Rican food. Humboldt park has had a bad reputation through the years . Its nice to see an estblishment of this sature in the area. I think they really deserve some credit. Its not home cooking Puerto Rican food (which might explain some of the critics reviews). Its not overly seasoned, your mouth is not ingulfed with sofrito, and there is not people hanging out in front of the restaurant(other then the customers dining in the outdoor area. Walking into CoCo's you are immediatly taken by the relaxing decor. upscale modern design gives you the comfort of eating a lovely meal with joy. I'd take any one in my family here and would even stay after dinner to enjoy thier live salsa band. Three pats on the back for giving people something good to talk about when it comes to humboldt park. I lived in the aea since I was 12years old. Now thirty and all I can say is its about time.

I came here with a group of friends a few weeks back and was shocked at the service and food at this place !!I was with a party of about 10 people .At first the waitress came over to our table to get our drink order ( we arrived after everyone else ) i told her i needed a few minutes to decide ..she came over to my table 3 times in about 7 minutes talk about being pushy !! i know this place doesnt prolly have a dress code for employess but no bartender in a "fine dining restaurant "should wear daisy duke shorts with her "junk" hanging out !! !!I finally ordered and then once again felt rushed to order my food .We all ordered at the same time yet received our food at differenet intervals ?!!Working in the restaurant industry this is a huge pet peeve for me !You should time the food properly !!Anyways the food was Bland at most which was soo dissapointing considering "real" prican food is very flavorful .And what kind of "fine dining restaurant puts plastic garnish swords on their mini jibbaritos ,talk about tacky ?And you shouldnt blast music early on in the night when its only the dinner crowd ...conversation was impossible and i would have liked to actully talk to my friends instead of yell. !Save your money people this place is too overpriced and needs to work on every aspect of the restauant !!!

Pros: Cute spot ,live music

Cons: terrible service waitress NEVER came back to check on us )

Although the ambiance at Coco is upscale, the food is not. I love Puerto Rican food, but this was the worst I have ever tasted, and the prices were outrageous for what is offered. My party and I were one of two groups in the entire restaurant, and it took 45 minutes to get our food. When it arrived, there was more plate than Mofongo, and it was try and tasteless. This restaurant does a disservice to Puerto Rican food, where the rich flavors are supposed to dance on your tongue.

Went here for my birthday with some friends and had a great time. I had pasteles, but my friends had some of the more modern dishes - everything tasted great. Waitress was very friendly and since it was raining when we left, the manager called a cab for us and gave us some umbrellas to use. Will definitely go back

What I like about Coco's is that I finally have a place that I can take my mom for a nice sit-down dinner. Before I couldn't find a Puerto Rican restaurant that had both great customer service and an upscale presence . Before i would take mom to an Italian or Mexican restaurant because I wanted that upscale feel. Now that Coco's is that restaurant II made my Puerto Rican mom happy! Thanks Coco Restaurant.

Pros: Great drinks, music, ambience, and food

Cons: Far from home

This was a surprisedly good restaurant, with an enjoyable decoration and atmosphere right at the center of the Puerto Rican community. THe area is getting better and the is a lot of history and cultural centers iat Division Street. The appetizers were delicious (tostones, amarillos, papitas, pollito frito; nothing better than Puerto Rican food. The drinks, wine were ok and the service was friendly, smiles and sincere. It is a place to return another day with friend just to listen to the music and talk for a while, meet other from the community that seems to gravite to the place for a short time..

I saw this place as a new entry in OpenTable which I often use to find new upscale restaurants. We were the first people there at 5:30 on a Saturday evening. There was only one man working and he was the host as well as the bartender. We had to be somewhere at 7:30 but didn't think that would be a problem as we were the first ones there. We ordered 2 appetizer samplers. It took 45 minutes for it to come even though the entire sampler was fried and should have taken no more than 5-10 minutes to prepare. We were told they were making the crab cakes. After all that wait, everything except the crab cakes were luke warm and the crab cakes were hot but were virtually tasteless and all filler. We both ordered a pork entree with a mango sauce. It took about 40 minutes after the appetizters to get the entree. We later learned they had served our entrees to the table beside us when they had ordered chicken. We were never told this, the patrons beside us told us. When the entree did come, it was bland with no taste and extremely overcooked. Dry and tough doesn't begin to describe the dish. It was billed as "tenderloin" but tasted like the cheapest pork you could buy. It wasn't seasoned either and wasn't blended with any kind of savory flavors at all. The yellow rice with gandules was also bland and flavorless. The only thing that was above average was the Mafungo which was moderately good at best. We were avoided the entire time and the owner, who we found out was the man who sat us and made our drinks never came to the table to check on us or apologize. Upon leaving, the waitress apologized for the delay, but the check was a full priced check and no items were taken off. The patrons beside us asked us," So, was it worth the wait?" We all laughed!! They said, "Yeah, ours either" We noticed that at 7:15 the staff was finally coming in and they finally had a bartender. Save your money and time and avoid this one at all costs!!!

Pros: Decor

Cons: Terrible Service, No Mood Music at all, Lighting was bright and offensive until 7:15 when they finally lit candles

Closed when it should have been open. And well if you are not part of whatever "click" then forget about service. Another PR let down...NEXT... in the meantime I will stick it out at PAPA's.

I loved the ambience. It's a great local place. The food wasn't so good though. I thought it lacked flavor. ALso, as it got crowded and we listened to the band, the maanger kept staring at us obviously wanting us to hurry up so he had an open table.

Puerto Rican food is great but there's not too many nice places to sit and eat in Chicago. A change was needed and Coco does just that- great atmosphere.. very trendy. Unfortunately...the food is not authentic cuisine. Coco is a great place to take friends for a drink but not a place to eat.. Puerto Rican food needs no changing and Coco did just that.

We really werent sure what we were in for when we made reservations to CoCo. But we were pleasently surprised. Both the traditional Puerto Rican food like Mafungo were unbeleivably great, as well as the more contemporary styled food. Everything was fresh and tasty. THe live music, traditional salsa band was unbelievable, I mean a band of this size in a regular restaurant. They just got their new Bar installed and what a bar, I hit the Puerto Rican Rum heavy it was sooo smooth and tasty. I love this place and would definately come back often. By the way, the service was amazing catered to every whim.
