Coquette Ratings and Reviews
Spectacular from start to finish. A beautiful space, warm service, and impeccable food. Every single bite. We put ourselves in their hands with a 5-course tasting menu. The snack set the tone — beautiful pate on perfectly grilled bread with bright satsuma and pickled bites, with the best tater tot I could ever hope to have. Courses included smoked cobia, and a delicate crabmeat and rice with popcorn, and a white fish, and...sorry, it gets hazy for the very best reasons. Perfectly balanced, perfect plating. What a meal!
I originally booked the reservation knowing a wife of my client and friend would be attending, who loves to find places with creative cuisine. Unfortunately she couldn't make it, leaving 4 manly men, two from Texas who prefer the biggest steak around... since dinner fell on me, I was a bit apprehensive keeping the reservation and just booking a steak house. I'm so glad we kept the reservation. We did the blind chef's dinner with wine pairing. It was amazing. Blue crab with popcorn? The flavors, the texture, this and the trout seemed to be everyone's favorites. The next day the four of us had a fishing trip... they all couldn't stop talking about it during the day. Cud-dos to the chef, the wait staff and vision of ownership to take such risks. This place is definitely on my list the next time I stop in New Orleans.
I’ve been MANY times to coquette for dinner. The chefs blind tasting is ALWAYS a favorite and never a dissapointment. I often take out of town guests here just for that purpose. Ate here for brunch and was fairly disappointed. Everything had dill on top and it was not tasty at all. I’d heard such great things about brunch here. Won’t be going back for that ever again. However. I will be continuing to bring people here for dinner.
Great experience, we did the blind tasting, which was. Really fun way to try the menu. Overall the food was amazing, the only criticism would be that everyone at our table thought the food was over salted. Otherwise, service, ambiance and he overall experience would be a five star for us
Coquette was highly recommended to us by the owners of "il Giallo" in Sandy Springs, GA.
It is a charming restaurant in the garden quarter of New Orleans in a lovely old building. The downstairs dining and gorgeous bar area are smallish but perfect to dine in if you don't want to climb many stairs to their dining room upstairs. (No lift.) Service is impeccable and very helpful, and both of their snapper and trout entrees were exceptionally delicious. I can't rave enough about their incredible apple caramel dessert which was so unusual and one of the best desserts I have ever enjoyed. We love this restaurant and think it is one of the best in NOLA.
While visiting NOLA, we decided to try this place based on a friend's recommendation. We enjoyed every bit of it. Opted for the blind tasting and wine pairing and everything that was placed in front of us was outstanding. My favorite item of the night: Butternut Squash ice cream! :)
We visited Coquette for our last dinner out in New Orleans. As a group of four friends who love food, we were not disappointed. We chose the Chef's Tasting menu and wine pairings and enjoyed everything - very flavorful and creative. I highly recommend Coquette to anyone who wants a special meal in a casual but classy atmosphere. Prices were reasonable, cocktails were tasty, and service was attentive.
Had a very good first-time experience. Although we were late to our reservation (had notified them), they accommodated us quickly. Server was very attentive and friendly. Answered all of our questions. Food was delicious.
If you go very hungry, which we were, note that you'll spend some $$$ to be full as the portions are on the small size.
I rarely write reviews but Dinner last night has earned accolades from my friends and me. We all did the tasting menu. The creativity was impressive. Service was really on spot. No fancy linens or glassware just pleasant well presented food and wines. The trout over shrimp sauce was particularly delicious
The choice of wines paired beautifully with the food
I really enjoyed our evening and thank Coquette for making it happen
This was our fourth time at a Kristen Essig restaurant. Our second trip to Coquette where Kristin and her partner, Michael Stolzfus, continue to amaze.
For the second time, we ordered the Chef Tasting menu for the table. Each course was presented by various upbeat knowledgeable waitstaff members. They all seem sincerely happy to be a part of the experience.
The dishes are a work of art and a gastric delight. It was also the second time that we brought out of town guests and like us, they can not wait to return. Ambience, service, great cocktail selection, and incredible food.
Exceptional food, wine and service (high praise from a Culinary Institue of America graduate). This was my third eating/drinking vacation in New Orleans, and I wish I had found Coquette sooner. Don't pass it up the next time you are dining in New Orleans, and definitely don't skip dessert. Many thanks to the Kitchen for producing such a great meal even on a Sunday night.
We had the blind 5 course menu with the wine pairing. This requires full table participation. There is an option to customize by your dietary restrictions, which is awesome for a pescatarian with nut allergies and vegetarian on a date. We enjoyed each other's meals and at times had options just for us, including the wine. The ambiance, service and food courses were superb. This was our first introduction to New Orleans casual fine dining and it didn't disappoint. If you are a foodie then you will love it.
Have usually loved this place, but this was a bad night for them. Our drinks came almost 10 minutes apart even thiugh ordered at same time (who does this?). The "pork shoulder" meal I ordered had only the smallest medallion of pork with most of the meal sausage and cobia (!?) neither of which were even mentioned in the description. Will likely give this place one more chance.
Excellent atmosphere, awesome food and drinks, very accommodating and attentive staff. Requested the top level to hopefully enjoy less noise to be able to enjoy the company, until next table was sat, they weren’t in the same mood 🙈. Overall excellent and will be coming back.
If you do nothing else in your lifetime, try the tasting menu at Coquette...absolutely amazing! A bit pricey at $70, but worth every penny. Every course was artfully prepared and married well to the wine pairing (an additional $35). Best gumbo I have ever had. Can't wait to return on my next trip.
My friend and I had a great experience at Coquette for her birthday dinner. If I lived in the neighborhood, I would go all the time. In fact, it put the neighborhood at the top of my list for when I eventually move to the city.
The service was exceptional. They are clearly well versed in hospitality and know how to take care of people. They came highly recommended by folks in the industry and I can definitely see why.
Thank you for everything!
We were visiting from out of town and found Coquette through a friend’s recommendation. The atmosphere was relaxed, yet elevated. We were treated splendidly by the staff, who paid careful attention to our comments on the food and guided us thoughtfully to recommendations for subsequent courses. The stand out dish was the very understated Louisiana Long Grain Rice, served with the most delicious broth. The small, yet excellent, wine selection matched the food well. Would most definitely return.
