Coquette Brasserie Ratings and Reviews

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.

This was for Father's Day and we had a great meal along. But more importantly the staff treated us like we were locals/friends coming in for our daily bread. We both had omelets which were fantastic. Dad wanted a spinach omelet that was not on the menu but Chef was very kind in accommodating our request.

Coquette is our "go place", period. We feel good taking foodie friends or those who just enjoy a great meal. We also find it romantic. They are also good about preparing food the way you like it.. Service is great and prices reasonable.
Decor makes you feel exactly like you just walked into a restaurant in Paris. Excellent service and the food is delicious. Champagne and wine was flowing. This was my second visit, and both were extremely enjoyable. One of our favorite lunch/brunch places in Raleigh. We all look forward to a return visit.
Great little restaurant
So glad to have the opportunity to rave about this gem of a restaurant in NOrth HIlls, Raleigh . The food was delicious. I had the Quiche Lorraine and my friend had a scallop dish. Both were perfect. Presentation was appealing and server was knowledgeable, attentive but not overbearing. All in all, an excellent experience.
Good French Cuisine in NC
The food is quite authentic. I had Coq au Vin, which was good but a bit pricy for 1 chicken leg in a bit of wine sauce. (20 USD). The selmon tartar as a starter wa excellent but also a bit expensive (13 bucks). We can certainly recommend the Creme brûlée which was excellent.
The wine list is not very long but the open ones we took were all good and price was ok.
The main issue we had on the service side was the seater who let our guests wait for more than 10 min although she had just seated us 5 min earlier. A short ' I'm so sorry' is not enough for such faux pas at least they could have offered an aperitif or coffee after the dinner.
We've been here several times in the past, and our recent visit was just not up to the usual fantastic experiences we've had here previously. Everything from the cocktails to the food to the wait service was just pretty good, but not special or amazing, as with before. It was a date night for us, and we had hoped for a really nice dining experience, especially with the food. My coq au vin was good, but my husband's tenderloin was just not something to write home about. We left feeling a tad disappointed, and puzzled.
A little bit of France...
Mussels, Pom frites, and Brussels sprouts, oh my! We were looking for something light and delicious and Coquette did not disappoint. Service was delightful, heaping bowls of steaming mussels in a light butter wine sauce accompanied by skinny Pom frites with aioli, and a side of Devine Brussels sprouts left no room for dessert. Beignets were ever so tempting. I also love the coq au vin, but that's for a cooler evening. Wish they would put the beignets on the brunch menu...sigh.
