Coquette Brasserie Ratings and Reviews
A very good coq au vin, absolutely ruined by grainy instant mashed potatoes. Mashed potatoes are easy and inexpensive to make, yet whoever runs this kitchen can't be bothered. That's the difference between a CHEF and a COOK. For the price paid, shameful and insulting.
Having eaten at Coquette many times, I know that when it's good, it's very good. However, my recent brunch experience seriously disappointed me. The waitress forgot to mention the specials, and I had to ask her several times to bring me a glass of water. My order-- florentine eggs benedict-- would have been good if cooked well, but the poached eggs looked under-cooked (translucent whites) and the sauce on top was actually cold. I didn't complain because I had suggested this restaurant to friends, and I was embarrassed. Had the waitress asked how we liked the food, I would have been honest. That apparently never occurred to her, though.
We have been there many times. I think they may be slipping some what on their food.
The dinners were good except the mussels were very small. The first bread that came to the table was very good some sort of wheat with sun flowers. We had to ask for crostini for both the mussels and the strat tartar, it was not fresh.
Service was good and we enjoyed the anniversary dinner over all.
The restaurant is one of my favorites for lunch, however I was disappointed in our dinner. The escargots did not have even a touch of garlic. The steak tartare appetizer was ok but nowhere near outstanding. The best meal at the table for 5 was the coq au vin. My fish Special was just OK. The service was excellent and the ambiance great. Just too had the food wasn't as good.
Food was fine but a bit on the greasy side (beef bourguignon and special chicken dish (whole roasted poussin). The Wednesday special was not prepared as described on the menu ( it appears on the menu as "whole roasted poussin", but was just the legs and wings, which were very small as it's a very young chicken".). Price of the special exceeded the value. Wine and soup were very good - onion soup gratinee and the special cream of asparagus - and the waitstaff and ambiance was very nice. Manager removed cost of husband's soup from the bill due to the issue with the entrée.
Our recent dinner was disappointing. My medium rare salmon entree was over cooked, when in the past it was perfectly cooked. The salmon portion was smaller than in our past visits. The brussel sprouts were overly cooked and dried out; we tasted but did not eat them. We have always liked this restaurant, but have now taken it off our list and will not recommend it.
Food could be better but not a deal breaker and I think it matches the prices. You just have to find something you like and you will be fine. What should definitely improve is the service. Our waitress seemed to rush the whole process as she was more concerned about the next step as opposed to making us feel comfortable. She took our dishes as soon as we put our utensils on the dishes and she dropped my wife's knife on the table because she was still eating when the waitress took her dish. I ordered an old fashion and it was served with crushed ice, pieces of orange, and it tasted more like sweet tea with a bit of bourbon. Also the glass was so overfilled that the waitress spilled drink on her hand and our table (I do not blame her for that). We had just got dessert when the check was on the table. I felt like I was being timed!!!
Arrived 11:45 AM, ahead of lunch crowd. Very quiet. Hardly anyone there at that time. Still, it took an inordinately long time for waitress to take our order and bring us bread and a beverage. There was an acrid odor in the air like a building had burned down recently. We were told it was the restaurant next door with which they shared a common ventilating system. However, the smell was not the pleasant one of food being cooked. More like a landfill fire.
Wine was excellent. Bread was very good. Beet salad was only so-so. Using cabbage as a filler didn't help it. French fries were similar to McDonalds, except that there were far too many small fragments. Seafood crepes were excellent. Overall, eighty bucks for lunch for two, including tip, is kind of pricey. I would experiment with other restaurants before coming back to this one, especially considering the price we paid. It did not provide the total dining experience we were expecting.
My wife and I enjoyed great date night at La Coquette. Cool thing happened, we both ordered steak frites (hangar steak) with Bearnaise. Our waiter arrived and said 'I think you both are medium rare" to which I answered 'Yes, how did you know". He said he remember us from seven years ago. Pretty amazing! Great service, great food, great date. Thanks!!
I have been to Coquette once before for brunch and I could not wait to return for their dinner service. I was extremely disappointed throughout the entire meal. We were seated right away, but were sitting for a solid fifteen minutes or so before we were introduced to our waiter/given water. I know it was busy and the wait staff were rushing, but my waitress spilled water on the table every time she refilled our glasses. She would apologize but would then leave the table and not return with anything to clean up.
Our appetizer came out relatively fast after we ordered it. We got the cheese plate/charcuterie board. Very small cheese and meat portions for the price. We know that a charcuterie board/cheese plate are just for sampling various meats and cheeses, but you often get more at other restaurants and we were a bit surprised.
After the appetizer we were not waited on at all until our meal was delivered. I have worked in the food industry before and I know how hectic and busy nights can be, but it was quite frustrating to have to wave to get our waters refilled, then to have our waitress spill water all over the table.
I got the steak frites and the fries were sort of limp and were not hot. They were warm, but didn't taste as fresh as I would have liked. My boyfriend got chicken which he enjoyed. We did not stick around for dessert.
I would recommend this place for brunch, but I do not think I would send anyone here for dinner. It was not worth the hefty bill. We left frustrated and unsatisfied.
The food was wonderful, we had foie gras, mushroom risotto and seared scallops. The wine list is short but adequate. The Cote du Rhone was very good. The service was warm and friendly. Decor could use some attention but we went there for the food and were very happy with Brasserie Coquette. Atmosphere is relaxed.
Today was the first Sunday restaurants could serve alcohol before noon in Raleigh. We opted for Coquette for brunch because we've dined here before and love the food. The mimosas and bloody mary's were also delicious and finally made it a true Sunday brunch. The truffle fries are to die for, the French onion soup is delicious, and the Monte Cristo and the perfect balance of salty and sweet. It's a must-see spot for brunch in North Hills!
Great food and ambiance, but the meal was sullied by the lack of changing tables for babies. If you're on a date without children this place is great. If you don't let your kids keep you from going out, this is not the place for you. Maybe that's how the owners want it?
Despite that, the waiter took excellent care of us and our little one.
We eat @ Coquette once a wk. Really nice ambience. Service always good. Tuna nicoise is one of our go-to orders. Steak frite and mussels and frites excellent. Soups are usually first rate and creative. There is a daily special featured on the menu. Celebrated a birthday in the private room and attended wedding reception there as well.
It's consistently good and that's why we love it...
Onion soup is worth ordering, too.
