Great food and well trained staff make a special occasion effortless.
We stumbled into Coquette Brasserie 5 year ago and go there whenever we’re in Raleigh.
Delicious brunch. We split the Nutella crepes and quiche Lorraine. No one minded the mimosas either! Really enjoyed it.
Great place on a rainy Saturday to have excellent choices for brunch or lunch. Outstanding fries with the steak. Had reservations so appreciated the call the day before to let us know about the auto show on the street level parking lot and where to find best parking option.
For several years we have been coming to La Coquette for my birthday celebration. It is one of my favorites in the Triangle. Wonderful food ; the steak tartare was done just right and the Bouillabaisse was delicious, with a generous chunk of fresh fish! The ambience is lively, but not excessive, with an authentic French feel.
To begin, our table was not ready at our reservation time of 1115am. So we had to wait an additional 15 minutes for the table. We arrived early to make sure we hit the reservation time. This unfortunately meant keeping tabs on our kids in the hot waiting area even longer. Not fun.
Then, our server was not very friendly. We had a table of 6 (4 children). The table next to us also had a few children and their server was much more accommodating with their children. That table's server brought waters in styrofoam cups with straws. We got glass, no straws for children ages 9/6/4/13 months. Very lucky nothing was broken. But this made our lives at the table much harder watching them take drinks. Refills on waters were poor, glasses mostly empty at the table. Lastly the final request we made to our server was to bring a few more syrups for the pancakes the kids ordered. He brought one extra. Really?
This was our first time here and likely will be our last trip here. It is highly unfortunate because we were given good reviews on Coquette.
The food was fantastic. Service was awesome. Loved the atmosphere and everything about it.
Our service was excellent but the food was mediocre at best. Usually excellent food.
Took my brother here for his birthday...had a wonderful time. Definitely will be back.
Our go-to for brunch. Amazing every time.
Duck was excellent. Waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful.
The hostesses were not all that welcoming, but the servers were great. The good was amazing and we loved the atmosphere. Definitely will be back!
Whenever we visit North Carolina, we always come to Coquette for lunch and it never disappoints. the food is always amazing (the moules frites are my favourite whereas my husband likes the Croque Madame).
We love Coquette ‘s. Food is always great, service is special and every one is so friendly. It is one of our favorites
Always an excellent venue in spring, summer and fall for a get together with dear friends be it in the bar or at the main dining area. Judson and Bret are the best!
A terrible disappointment overall. Once I realized the place was mostly for show and the only thing coquettish was just the place being a big tease versus a substantive French restaurant, I moved on with my life. Maybe its where hipsters in the nearby condos can just pretend or the owners are pretending to them? The waitress was perhaps the main issue and I think the air just went out from the start. It's not like she had a bad attitude its just no one had shown her The Light of Good Service. She wasn't trained and might as well have been a robot. No engagement and indifferent, barely cracking a smile because she was aimed at how soon she could get her shift done. I mean I didn't order a $300 bottle of champagne but $100 bottle might show you as a server I mean business. Nope, listless and luke warm service still. We were cordial to her and conversational, hoping to spark something but she never came to life. Which is sad because the food was quite good. Great escargot, gnocchi, decent scallops and excellent creme brulee but it all felt like a trance of going through fine dining motions as only the chef appeared to be glad we were there. Service in French restaurants is EVERYTHING to everything else so no I won't be returning and yes, have verbally shared the let down with everyone after the fact as its my honest opinion of the experience.
Was great, will definitely recommend to friends and family.
Best damn quiches in town... no kidding, the best, fluffiest, and great quiche of the day ingredients #fluffyawesomeness.
We had a very enjoyable evening. We will certainly b back again.
Parisian gnocchi was really good as was the duck 🦆 and you can’t beat the salted butter. We were in and out in about 45 minutes so the service was a little rushed...
I met some friends for lunch at Coquette and loved it. The atmosphere was trendy. The doors/windows opened to a patio that could allow you to envision that you were at a Parisian café! The food was good. I had a quiche and salad, different fare than I normally eat on a lunch out, so that was a treat. I would definitely recommend!
Our monthly get-together w/ friends. All entrees were wonderful - filet perfectly cooked to order, though fingerling potatoes accompanying the meat were dry; scallops were excellent as well as the seafood crepes. Only disappointment was seafood stew which was described as filled w/ halibut, mussels and clams - only had 6 mussels - very disappointing. Craft cocktails delicious! Wine always reliable. We shared the multiple cookie plate for dessert - the macaroons were the best!! Our server was knowledgeable, helpful, efficient and friendly.
Coquette never disappoints. A standing neighborhood haunt.
What else but Quiche?
Why even look at the menu when Coquette's makes such a great quiche? Just go for it!
A big miss. We often meet friends here and have always enjoyed the experience; however, brunch this past Sunday was very disappointing and certainly typical for this restaurant. Two of us ordered Eggs Florentine. The "poached" eggs were just too raw too eat - the whites were completely uncooked - so we sent them back. When the dishes were returned to us, they were still disappointing. The eggs were fine, if somewhat overcooked now, but the English muffins were tough as bricks. The last time I had this dish it was served with tomato confit which just made it very special. On our recent visit the confit was replaced with raw cherry tomato - very, very disappointing. The service was okay and the fries and salad were excellent.
Our server was very attentive and it made our celebration quite memorable.
Hair in food
We had a great time. Our server was excellent! Only quam is the portions are a little small for the price.
Wonderful time with friends celebrating delicious food! Seafood crepes where divine!!
Always excellent moment here in coquette restaurant. Food is delicious and service is perfect
Great service and the food was delicious! My husband that my salad was the prettiest salad he had ever seen--it was pretty and good! We got a quiche to go and it was great for dinner that evening.
Business celebration. Great set up in the bar area for our team. Judson took great care of us for both cocktails and having our food served at the right time
The food, atmosphere and service were all excellent. A great place for having delicious French cuisine and lingering conversation.
My husband & I were celebrating our 11th wedding anniversary. We had a lovely dinner. The food and drink were delicious, and the ambiance was beyond compare. They also surprised us complimentary champagne. We had a wonderful evening. Highly recommend!
Warm atmosphere, great service, delicious food. Would recommend for Sunday brunch.
I've been here to celebrate several birthdays (mine and others). My sister was coming in from out of town recently and made a special request to have Sunday brunch here, based on a single memorable experience of hers from five years ago. She claims that the omelettes are among the fluffiest she's ever had (twice!). Her compliments to the chef. My entire family enjoys the and reminisces about our trip to France together.
wonderful food, great ambience, and excellent staff
