Coquette Ratings and Reviews
I come to Coquette for special occasions ...
I come to Coquette for special occasions with my wife, generally an anniversary or birthday when it's just the two of us. A friend recommended the restaurant as a place to celebrate proposing to my wife in 2013 and we've made it our place since then.
Coquette is amazing New Orleans food, I would not call it traditional however. If you're looking for something that's been on the menu for 30+ years, I don't think coquette will be what you're looking for. If you're looking for a bit of adventure and are willing to step slightly out of your comfort zone, then you'll have a lot of fun here. I'm a picky eater and can usually find something that I recognize and when I start eating, it's hard to stop. Portions are not super sized, but I always leave full.
In my experience downstairs (street level) can be a little noisy when it's busy, upstairs is quieter.
Bottom line, if you want something different yet done in the New Orleans flare, go here. I've never had the same menu twice.

service was wonderful -- responsive and unpretetnious. somm had a laidback but was super knowledgable and made a great suggestion. complimentary champagne for anniversary was a great touch. the kitchen prepared a special vegetarian appetizer for me and it was perfect. food was delicious & we were quite satisfied with portion sizes. lovey interior.

We were attempting to escape a Super Bowl game with opponents that my bride and I could care less about. Therefore, we Ubered a short distance to this top-rated establishment located at Washington and Magazine streets in NOLA. Consistently excellent meals have been enjoyed by us at this venue and tonight was no exception. Recommendations to be seriously considered are: the yellowfin tuna crudo and the smoked cobia appetizers. We are considering dropping by once a week just to have a drink and share these incredible creations listed on the menu under " Small Plates". Beyond these yummy starters one must entertain the thought of eating either the red snapper or the poulet rouge entrees which are equally awesome dishes not to be missed! The wine list is excellent and the steward is quite knowledgeable and capable when it comes to making suggestions that will enhance any pairing. We are already planning our next visit and cannot wait. Coquette is in summary delicious, innovative, enjoyable and affordable. Bon appetit!

We had a truly memorable meal at Coquette. The chef even made an absolutely delicious special salad for us when we didn't see any salads on the menu. Good wine list, friendly wait staff, and a simple, lovely, pleasing decor. Our time there made an ordinary Saturday night feel special.

Brought a group -6 of us-for Friday night dinner. My wife and I had eaten at Coquette many times in the past and thought it would be a good place for out of town friends. We were wrong. The service was very good, but the food was another matter. First, there is a very limited menu. We ordered a variety of small & large plates. Of them, the fried duck wings were best. Everything else was so so. The seafood "bisque" had to be sent back because it was cold. When it was returned, it still wasn't up to expectations. The other dishes were ok-pork steak, shrimp & grits, but nothing special. One of my guests's comment said it all. "With all of the good places in New Orleans, why did we come here!" Sorry Coquette, but it will be sometime before we return.

I recently spent a week in New Orleans, both for business and for fun. We ate at many excellent restaurants, but Coquette topped them all by a very wide margin. Very creative chef preparations with everything from appetizers to entrees to desserts and cocktails. Excellent service. I highly recommend treating yourself and your friends or business colleagues at Coquette.

Wonderful food. Well prepared and not overly concocted. The room was very pleasant and not stuffy. We would return often if we lived in New Orleans. Special enough for a celebration. And yet low key enough for just a great everyday dinner.

First, and above all, Coquette was recommended to us for the outstanding cuisine. We were not disappointed - in any way - with the food. IT WAS WONDERFUL. We enjoyed what was referred to as a "5 Course Blind Tasting." This was an opportunity for us to enjoy foods the chef wanted to highlight on the evening we were there. Every course was interesting and the variety made for a fun dining experience. Having worked in the food industry for decades, my husband has had the pleasure of eating in some fine restaurants all over the world. On many occasions, I have been able to join him. Our dining experience at Coquette will go down as a memorable one. THE ONLY THING that could have been better? The staff could have been more pleasant. We didn't feel as if they were enjoying themselves while serving their guests. We're all human and not everyone has a good day every day! However, it doesn't have to take any longer to be gracious and personable.

Excellent! Did the blind tasting. Really creative and fun. The waitress worked with us on the wine pairing, but wouldn't allow us to split, which most places do. Left tipsy as we both are lightweights. So except for that issue, it was a great time.
The construction outside wasn't bad. But we asked to sit far from the door which helped.

My husband and I told our west coast friends that we were going to New Orleans "to eat" for six days. We did that for five days, trying to eat at favorite, familiar well known restaurants. On the sixth and last night we walked in a light drizzle to Coquette as it was very close to our rented room in an old Victorian house. It was one of the best meals we had! It was just the right size for us to enjoy unusual, and beautifully prepared small dishes (feeling quite virtuous about the dish size)) after overeating the previous days. We both loved it.

The food was absolutely delicious. The tuna and beef tartare were amazing (as I expect everything on their menu is)! I almost ordered the tuna again for dessert it was so delicious! The service was fine, but just a little bit slow, which is ok for the environment.

Great food. The only lowlight wad that a server broke a full glass onto my guest. That's fine, it happens, but we got no apology, nothing was comped or given as a peace offering. A simple "sorry" would have sufficed.

We've eaten here several times. We made reservations for New Years and received a call 2 nights prior requesting a credit card and letting us know about the special limited menu and the rather significant price tag that came with it. It was too late to make other arrangements. The staff was superior as always, the food was also superior; however, it was very loud. Would suggest they let guests know about the special situation when reservations are made, not 2 nights before the event. Still remains a favorite!

Terribly conceived flavor combinations and lackluster execution. It was so disappointing because a foodie friend heard about this place and convinced me to change my reservations to go here. Needless to say- I wish I had stuck with my original plans as this was the only bad dining experience I had in the four days of non-stop eating in NOLA.

I went to Coquette for Sunday brunch and the meal was tremendous. The standout was a dish of rice, butternut squash and Brussels sprouts. It tasted 100 times better than it sounds. The fish crudo was excellent as well.

This was one of the best restaurant experiences I have ever had. The menu was fantastic - we would have been happy picking anything on there. And the food was amazing once we got it - great/unique flavors and fun presentations. Good cocktails but that's NOLA. Service was great as well - our waiter was on point with all recommendations. Highly recommend

This restaurant is nothing short of outstanding! I have been back twice in the last 30 days. The crab app with rice and popcorn is creamy, crunchy, and buttery for all the right reasons. The duck was perfectly seared w/ a beautiful medium rare center. And the pimento sausage app equally incredible. Service has been great too! And as much as I hate to carb load, the bread is so good w/ yummy salted butter. Seriously who mentions bread anymore, you will ask for more. Eat here, you will thank me later.

I have eaten at Coquette several times but my most recent visit was just outstanding. My companion had the drum and I had the red snapper. We shared the yellow fin tuna crudo as a starter and also shared the oyster bisque. Everything was done to perfection. Our server was attentive but timed things so she didn't interfere unnecessarily with our conversation. I've never had a bad meal or a bad time at Coquette but this time was especially delicious.
