Coquette Ratings and Reviews

My husband and I visited Coquette from New Jersey for our wedding anniversary dinner, on the recommendation of a friend. We did the blind tasting and added the wine pairing, and if you have the opportunity you must do this! First of all, when we sat down they asked if we were planning on drinking that evening and when we confirmed we were, they brought out a sparkling rosé as an anniversary treat. When the food started coming, I really was amazed at all the flavors and combinations they presented. The wines the server, Taylor, paired with each course were all superb. The dessert was delectable - don't skip it!
Overall, I was stunned with how perfect our meal at Coquette was, and will certainly be back for another round the next time I visit NOLA. Do yourself a favor and go!

The whole staff was absolutely amazing! There was minor issue with my guest accompanying me but the entire staff was completely professional and very helpful in helping me and making sure my experience was as amazing as I had hoped for.

What delectable and artistically presented food at reasonable prices. The service couldn't have been better. We were treated like royalty even though we didn't order big ticket items. I plan to go back many times. I would recommend reservations well in advance of your visit as it's a quaint and charming smaller restaurant.

My husband and I went to Coquette on the last night of our vacation in New Orleans. That night we stayed in the Garden District and the restaurant was a nice walk from the hotel. I was very impressed with the creative recipes and superb execution of the food. We had already dined at some of the best restaurants in New Orleans and this was my favorite. As a resident of NYC I am a tough critic. The staff was helpful and friendly and the decor very attractive. My only criticism is the high noise level on the ground floor. This could be solved by adding some sound-absorbing materials. We had asked to sit upstairs but that was unavailable due to a private party.

Should have a Michelin star already! Make sure you order the astoundingly good chef's tasting menu. Also, try to get an early (5:30 or so) reservation - the staff have a lot more available time then. We had not been there in two years, and the food and service are still as superb as then. Should be one of the top 100 restaurants in the US (based on having been to a few "top 100" restaurants that were not as good as Coquette). Very knowledgeable staff and a brainy sommelier whose wine pairings were brilliant. I gave the sommelier the challenge of coming up with single bottle of wine for me for all of the tasting dishes. He picked a Dolcetto d'Alba that worked well with all but one of the many courses. Bravo!

We did the blind tasting menu and could not have been happier with the result. The food was incredible and used a variety of flavors and textures while still maintaining a similar theme throughout the meal. The wine pairing was also perfect, so much so we asked the wine guru for a list of all the selections and he took the time to print it out for everyone in the party. Croquette didn't just hit the mark, they went above and beyond. We will definitely go here again.

While the ambiance this particular night was not Coquette's fault, I do have to include it in my review, as it certainly affected our dinner (though it was our decision to sit outside, so the fault falls to us, if anyone).
Taylor, our waiter, was attentive and helpful, without being overly so. The gentleman who refilled our water and brought our silverware was less unobtrusive - his presence at the table caused our conversation to cease while he laboriously laid silverware out, or interrupted us to fill our water. That could have been accomplished with more finesse.
The food and drinks were absolutely delightful. Our compliments to the kitchen.
We chose to sit outside, it being a beautiful evening. That felt like a poor choice at times, since there were many motorcyclists who had attended the afternoon's second line who chose to rev their engines up and down Washington Avenue. Additionally, the restaurant is on a corner with a bus stop, which attracted a number of bystanders just hanging out, waiting for the bus. This made for a less than intimate dining experience, but again, really isn't Coquette's fault. It is unfortunate, however.
All in all, a great, but not exceptional dinner. We may revise our seating plans next time (depending on the day's activities).

We recently visited Coquette on our honeymoon and had one of the best meals we've ever eaten. A truly amazing meal with fantastic flavours and textures, the home fries are worth going for alone! We also tried some of the creative cocktails available which were fantastic! We had really been looking forward to visiting and will remember how great the meal was for years to come and will hopefully be in the city again in the future to return.

Our first time to Coquette was a great success! My husband and I were seated immediately for our 6:30 reservation at a nice window view two top upstairs. We were greeted promptly and offered water and drinks. Our wine was tasty, service was exceptional all around, and the server's recommendations were all spot on. My husband had the shrimp and grits which were rich and delicious, and my cured Cobia appetizer was phenomenal. I opted for the beef and my husband got the poulet rouge. Both were well executed but I called his "yin/ yang" chicken the star. But in reality we were waiting for the showstopper at the end, the lemon panna cotta has to be one of the best desserts I've ever had. With tax and tip (with a bottle of wine plus 2 other glasses) we were at about 250, and it was a well worth the splurge. I will definitely be back.

Five course blind tasting was enjoyed by everyone at the table. It was timely and they made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our meal. My wife and I have made this our go to restaurant when visiting NOLA

Absolute perfection from reservation information to after dinner digestive aperitif. The blind tasting/chef's selection was exquisite and a great way to sample more of the menu than ordering directly. Well worth the money, and such great, personable staff.

Another Friday evening date night with my wife, made all the better by exceptional service and outstanding food. On the Small Plates: the heirloom tomatoes, the gulf shrimp and the green tea cured cobia are consistent standouts (the cobia ia simply our favorite dish on the entire menu). Regarding the Large Plates: the poulet rouge offered a very distinct twist on the standard "chicken entree offering" which was incredibly delicious and memorable. The black drum was an equally exceptional interpretation of a classic fish found on many NOLA menus, but not prepared/presented in an expected fashion. Both Large Plates were AWESOME (as in finger-licking-good). The wine list is an area of noted value to the consumer; on this Friday we were in a celebratory mood so the Pol Roger cuvee Brut Reserve (the white foil) offered at $80.00 was a wonderful accompaniment to the meal. If it was good enough for Sir Winston Churchill, it should also be good enough for us. The blend of this champagne (like the food) is noted for its consistency, style and overall quality. The bottle offered us an elegant and refined pairing for the food which is always prepared with love.

I was in town for a travel writer's workshop and booked a table for 6 of us writers. Most of us ordered starters and mine was the fairytale eggplant. We all liked the starters and our entrees. I had the octopus and loved the hint of hot pepper and other seasonings. Four of us had dessert. I had the caramelized banana that was well dressed and had several garnishings like cute little banana bread rounds, but the two scoops of peanut butter ice-cream pegged the butterfat meter and tipped me over the edge of ecstatic diner. Would love to go back if only I lived in NOLA.

Delicious food- best meal of the weekend. Brunch menu is perfect and I had a hard time choosing which item to get. All looked good and what we ordered was phenomenal! Service was spot on and friendly. Don't miss this spot on your trip!

Went for no menu Tuesday menu. Our nights theme was Wurst of coquette. Chose the wine pairings which included champagne, wine, and beer. All courses were good to excellent except the dessert-apple turnover with vanilla ice cream with andouille sausage oil. Latter not a hit!

This is the second time I've done the tasting menu and it did not disappoint!!!!! I highly suggest this in lieu of anything else!!! I've lived in NOLA for 20 years and this is one of the best restaurants in the city. Totally unpretentious, friendly and knowledgable staff. Always a pleasure having dinner here

My husband and another friend celebrated their birthdays on No Menu Night. The theme of the evening was Eastern Shore and the 5 course meal did not disappoint. The food was fresh and delicious. The service was excellent and our waiter courteous and attentive. We will definitely be back.

Everyone was super nice! The food was excellent. We were visiting from out of town and I saw this place recommended by a few different periodicals and I'm so glad we tried it! I love being able to try as many dishes as possible when I dine out, so I loved their option of smaller & larger plates. My fiance & I split two small plates, one large, and dessert and it was the perfect amount of food!
