Coquette Brasserie Ratings and Reviews

2nd visit in a month and was disappointed in the menu. Had eaten here over the past 3-4 years and always thought the food was excellent. These past 2 visits was a let down. The time before I thought maybe it was just an off night, but the 2nd time was the same. I thought the menu was very limited and nothing offered seemed out of the ordinary. We ended up ordering the hamburgers--they were good. Only other thing on the menu that was of interest was the salmon. The waitress seemed distracted . The white wine was not chilled and had to be brought in an ice bucket to chill it....all in all, the restaurant is not the same.

Disappointed describes my overall experience. We had a 12:15 PM reservation and we were not immediately seated. I did not mind except for the fact that once we were seated, we didn't have a table suitable for a party of six. In addition, I'm not sure if Coquette's AC is not working properly or if it is normally hot in their establishment, but we were uncomfortably warm in the restaurant. This distracted me from enjoying my meal. I ordered the chicken paillard and it was mediocre. I've had this same dish at Rue Cler, which is absolutely amazing and I was hoping for something comparable. Our waiter also forgot to bring my onion soup. I know Sundays can be extremely busy, but unfortunately the quality of food and the service was subpar.

Went for brunch with my best friend, third time I've visited Coquette. The service was outstanding. We both got coffees, and our server, Tyler, never made us wait for refills throughout our whole meal. The food was excellent as usual, and particularly notable was our dessert, the orange cranberry clafoutis, a traditional french dessert you don't usually encounter stateside.

I had the mussels and they were way over done and bitter. I think the garlic was burned which gave it the bitterness. I told the waiter but he did not take it off my bill. I paid the bill anyway, didn't want to make a scene. Not happy about that. overall good, the pate du jour was excellent.

Thoroughly enjoyed our special dinner at Coquette. Our server, Ronnie, was outstanding and allowed us to enjoy a leisurely paced meal, as requested. We tried a variety of entrees and each was delicious, perfectly prepared, and appropriately sized. The coq au vin was tender and nestled in a cloud of heavenly mashed potatoes. The duck breast was spectacular and cooked to perfection. We also had the brined pork chop special of the night and it was out of this world tender. We sat at a banquette which usually limits someone to staring at a wall all night but the mirrors afforded that member of our party full sight of the seating area and was much appreciated. I will definitely return to Coquette and recommend it to you for a special treat.

At my sister's recommendation we chose Coquette for a family brunch while visiting Raleigh. It was a bit challenging to find the restaurant in the North Hills mall but once we found it we were really glad. Our server was attentive without being over-bearing and the food was really terrific. Don't miss the Nutella/Banana crepe....

This was one of many visits to Coquette and it was great as usual. The squash and gruyere quiche was phenomenal. The staff very kindly accommodated us at a particular table with cushy seats as my friend had recently injured her back. Well done, Coquette!

our 44th anniversary celebration with another couple. quite a nice evening. food was excellent as was wine. service was attentive, though we found ourselves waiting for an extended time at a couple points, but not a real bother since we were having large conversation with our friends. 2 beef and 2 fish entrees were just superbly done and nicely presented. will return.

We like the restaurant for its ambiance. The service was well above average from the greeting upon arrival to the departure. The waiter was attentive without being overbearing.
This is the second time we have eaten there. The first time the food was very good. This time the food was mediocre at best. The veal blanquette was chewy and and a little fatty. The taste was somewhat bland. The beef bourguignon was missing something that would have added more flavor. (Somewhat bland as well.)

I took Japanese visitors for their first dinner at Raleigh and the dinner, mood was great here. Even though it is French, you can feel a little American in it. The appetizers were great taste for escargot and the entrée were good with duck! I will come back again.

Love this place!!! It's becoming one of my favorite places to eat in Raleigh!! Service and food are outstanding! The monte cristo for brunch is very tasty and the steak frites for dinner is delicious! The kids menu is one of my favorite features about Coquette. They actually have a steak on the menu that's a steak with mashed potatoes and green beans. We will be regulars here and go on Sunday's...$2 mimosas!!

The food was OK but very different from other French cooking we have experienced. It seemed to be very heavy with a lot of gravy. We are not used to that. This is a matter of taste, so no problem. The escargot was fair.

I have been coming here since they opened, and while the food is typically very good, sometimes they just do something stupid, and this was one of those times. I ordered the salmon, which came with squash. I asked if I could substitute squash for something else, and the waitress suggested french fries, which was fine with me. She came out a few minutes later and said, "The chef said you cannot have french fries, if you want them you have to buy them as a side order." I asked if there was another side from another entree that I could use then, and she said, "No. There is nothing you can substitute it with." Will I get a credit for not having a side then? "No. Don't blame me, it's the chef."
Another time, I ordered the quiche, which I have had at least 30 times. I often come for brunch or by myself and sit at the bar during my lunch break, and this is my go-to item. The quiche came out cold, and when I pointed that out to the waitress, she told me that is how it is served, just lukewarm. Well, I pointed out it was cold, not lukewarm, and it should be served hot either way and if she could take it bake and heat it up. She begrudgingly did, brought it out again, and it was still cold. So, I asked her again, she brought it back out a 3rd time, still cold. When I pointed it out it was still cold, she said, "We can't keep it oven long as we have other food to cook." Oh, so my food doesn't count and she thinks I don't know how the quiche should be prepared after having it 30 some times. So I just took it home where I could heat it up and ate it there.

Coquette Brasserie is always a delight for any meal. Bread & salted butter, as well as the side we order of excellent fries--both worth the indulgence. We both ordered seafood which was perfectly cooked and artfully presented.

This most recent visit was a big improvement from our last visit a few years ago when just about nothing went right... so much that we avoided Coquette for years. They've redeemed themselves, though, with prompt and attentive service, quality food with nice portions, and an overall enjoyable experience. We were welcomed at the door and never felt rushed, despite the Sunday brunch crowd filling the place. The orders came out quickly (and correctly).

The service was very good, the food was pretty good. It was a bit salty for my preference. When scallops are salty I am not surprised, but the bread was salty (or maybe it was the butter). I was hoping for a more intimate atmosphere, but it was laid out basically like a McAlister's. Good place for a good meal, would never be my choice for a special occasion though.

We recently celebrated our anniversary at Coquette and had a wonderful experience. Our server's suggestions were spot-on, the ambiance was just right, and the food was delicious. The service was great too. In the year that
we have lived in NC, this was the most elegant restaurant we have encountered.
We expected to encounter a French- speaking staff, which was not the case.

Our server was a young man who displayed the perfect balance between hovering (bad) and keeping watch over our table and returning at just the right time. Was also well informed and a good explainer of wines and menu items.
A fun evening before a stressful day on Tuesday at Duke Raleigh Hospital.

Always love this restaurant but just went on a Sunday night, early not late. . No specials or chalkboard Items, and they were out of 2 proteins, one of which several people in our party had wanted to order. Bread did not arrive until we already had our first courses. Dessert was amazing and not to be missed!

We've been to Coquette many times as our kids live in Raleigh. I make sure we dine there at least once on every trip to visit them. You know the drill...Dad always gets the bill, but at this place I'm happy to take it. We lived in Paris for 6 years, and Coquette rates favorably to most of our favorites there. Food is excellent and simple in brasserie style and needless to say the service far exceeds anything in Paris. Favorites for me are escargot, steak-frites, French onion soup and an incredible cranberry tart for dessert. The wine list is extensive and fairly priced. You know...Coquette is not a super fancy 5 star Michelin rated restaurant, but somehow it's still one of my favorite places to go. Can't wait til the next time.

When we arrived the restaurant was not very full. Nevertheless we were lead to a table near the kitchen instead of nearer the door. If it this restaurant's policy to fill the tables near the kitchen first, then it needs to change. I did not complain at the time as I was with my family and they prefer me not to cause a fuss thus marring what was to be a pleasant evening.

I took 5 world traveler friends and they all loved it. They couldn't believe they had never heard of it. I told them it was well worth the drive across town. They were all impressed with their lunches. I was the hero of the day!

Coquette competes for the best French restaurant I've had in the area. The food is absolutely incredible and service is excellent. When the foodie in me wakes up Coquette lands on my list. As far as price is concerned it isn't cheap..but not overly pricey and what you get for the price is worth it.
