Coquette Brasserie Ratings and Reviews
This was perhaps my 3rd visit to Coquette Brasserie. Previously, I was here for dinner and brunch...both were very good. This most recent visit was for a combination Father's day (me and two daughters) and a birthday (my wife's). The staff was very accommodating and patient. Our choices of food ranged from soup, fish, oysters, fowl, beef, cheese platter, burger...all was chorused as "super". The sole grumping came from a daughter who had her heart set on lamb, and while the menu occasionally features a lamb dish, it did not this visit. The restaurant is pricey, but for our 2.5 hours of food and celebration, it was worth it.
If only Carolinians understood that adults without children should be able to enjoy a meal interrupted by little ones. There's very little left that isn't infiltrated by people with children, they even bring then to breweries now? My romantic date was only negatively affected by the table that was seated next to us that had several children in their party. I love that St. Jacques does not allow this. But the food, service, wine, and ambience of Coquette were perfect! Next time I'll request a more secluded table.
My favorite dish croissant, scone, and coffee cake dish was not available today. I ordered pancake instead bit it was plain and not remarkable. The French Toast that my husband ordered was just two thick pieces of bread with some egg on top of them, dry if not for the maple syrup. French Toast should be soaked with egg, not just pasted. It was a rather disappointing brunch. :(
Food was very good overall. Service was off. The restaurant was not at all crowded but our waiter disappeared for long stretches and only did the bare minimum. Somehow flies got in from outside and we had to wave them off from our food repeatedly. Yuck. Not an experience you expect to have inside the restaurant. I've seen many recent reviews about poor service-is management taking notice?
My friend and I had a lovely ladies lunch choosing off of the Raleigh Restaurant week menu - delicious Duck Confit and homemade Raspberry sorbet. The service was excellent, the atmosphere was quite nice. We were lucky to be there on a day when it was unseasonably cool so they had the window-doors open with a beautiful fresh breeze. Authentic French experience.
Friday night pre-NC Symphony concert dinner. Large open setting with soft French music in the background. Waiter was very friendly. Two types of house bread, both very good, but one was on the salty side as if sea salt was one of the ingredients. The Beef Bourguignon was was very, very good, the meat extremely tender. The Filet Mignon was good, the exterior was a little on the tough side. When the menu mentions that is comes with promme puree, it comes with a lot. It was delicious, but when I tried to cut me steak, the promme puree caused the steak to slide all over the plate making things a bit of a challenge. Everything moved along nicely, but due to time constraints, did not sample the dessert menu. When we arrived, there were many empty tables and filled up while we ate. The person that took us to our table was not very friend and directed us to the worst table possible when many other tables were available. a narrow two-seater slammed up next to a divider leaving no elbow room. We moved to another two-seater table with the blessing of the waiter, but that table was really two small for all the plates and glasses. I noticed that this same person tried to seat all groups of two at these ultra-small tables and there was some push back and movement to new tables. Two ladies ended up getting a table that can seat four and I wish I had done the same. (Management: you might want to look into this practice. ) For those with young kids, this seemed to be a popular place as there were quite a few very young diners -- all very well behaved -- so the kids menu must be good.
I genuinely wanted to live this place. I made a reservation for Mother's Day and thought it would be a sweet gesture to take mom there for lunch. Unfortunately, the only noteworthy thing were the truffle fries. We arrived and had to wait for a table right in the middle of a high traffic area although we had reservations and asked for a quiet table. The experience as a whole was massively underwhelming. The omelettes were flavorless, we were overcharged for our drinks (larger sized beer than we actually had) and the service was stuffy and generic. We will not be back. The atmosphere was not enough to save it.
The bread was stale and tough. It shouldn't have been served. When our waiter first started to serve water at the table, I let him know I didn't want any because I was going to order club soda, and he gave me a weird look and lightly shook his head like he thought I was very strange. Am I the only person in the world who may want something other than tapwater with my meal? The Brussels sprouts side dish were fantastic. We ordered two coq au vin and neither were brought to the table with all the ingredients and fully garnished. Could see the tables around us received the proper dish. One of ours was missing the roasted pearl onions entirely and both had zero generous green garnish as is their regular presentation. Obviously no one was checking the dishes leaving the kitchen to make sure that they were consistent and perfect. Our waiter said oh well, we serve a lot of them. A sorry, I'll let the kitchen know, is the correct response. The saving factor was that the chicken was properly cooked and tender and the sauce delicious. My main course of scallops consisted of just three scallops. More like an appetizer portion for the price. Our waiter got happier as we ordered more and more dishes, and was very friendly at the end. This restaurant is our son's favorite in town, which is why we took him there for his graduation celebration. I'm sure he will be returning to enjoy the food there.
We went to Coquette to celebrate our son's graduation from UNC Chapel Hill. Coquette was very accommodating with our reservation (last minute change of time and change in the number of guests). The service and the food were excellent. Even though the place filled up fast, we never had the sense of being crowded nor rushed.
Celebrating Mother's Day early. My most recent visit was a bit of a let down. This French restaurant has lost much of its authenticity as waiting staff did not speak French. Food was creative and tasted very fresh but the evening special was lacking in wow factor. Cocktails were delightful but dessert puff pastry was somewhat dry. Noise level loud and price did not match quality of dining experience.
Visiting Raleigh for a few days we perused the place to dine. We love French bistros and this one was so authentic we could almost swear we were in France. The food was wonderful and the steak with the steak frites was one of the best we have ever had in the US or France! The moules frites was excellent as well. The service was just as it should be - not too attentive - not too inattentive. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone and would dine there again when in Raleigh!
