We went to Cochon yesterday for about the 4th time in many years. It was delicious. We sat at the bar to eat since the front restaurant was full. The bartenders were awesome. They made incredible drinks and had a great selection of draft beer....More

Had lunch on a Sunday, very busy but staff were calm, cool and collected. Excellent suggestions from waiter, was knowledgeable. Appetizers were good enough to eat alone without a meal, charcuterie was different than typical (eg head cheese) and bread and butter pickles. Nice. Smoked...More

Great food. The fried alligator with mint and wood-fired oysters are not to be missed. The restaurant can be loud but the food is worth the experience. This was probably the best dinner we had on our trip here and we went to several outstanding...More

Eat family style. My favorite was the fried oyster and bacon sandwich. My wife loved the pork cheek and sausage jambalaya. Overall, efficiently served, friendly staff. Reasonably priced, we thoroughly enjoyed our experience.

I should make this very simple. Great restaurant and the best ribs I’ve ever eaten. And they were an appetizer. You will not be disappointed. Go and try things you wouldn’t normally try and you will love them all.

Nice ambiance, good cocktails. Wood fired oysters were great! The signature dish - Cochon was average. It was pulled pork, but bland with very little char, soggy but not saucy and you could break a tooth on the cracklins. The mac and cheese side was...More

Nicely redone space. Good menu and attentive service. The executive chefs here also have several other restaurants in the city. It is ~3 block walk from the St. Charles Streetcar stop at Lee Circle.

Hi Lalaine, I believe seeing it on the menu but perhaps served seasonally... They have magnificent customer service, I believe they would accomodate. Giving them a call would be best. Enjoy Cochon safe travels!
