Coquette Ratings and Reviews
The blind tasting was exceptional in flavor and incredibly inventive, with unconventional drink pairings to match. I was absolutely dazzled. Zoe, our server was knowledgeable, friendly, and extremely precise. Without hyperbole, one of the best meals I have ever had.
I am sure their regular menu is just as great, but I can't see myself ordering anything but the blind tasting in return visits (of which there will be plenty.)
Thank y'all so much for a truly fantastic evening.
Much to my shock, I come in for dinner with another guy and we are shown to the absolute worst table in the house (2nd floor remote corner next to a huge empty Party table!). The table is of course also unbalanced. The hostess doesn't even ask if I'd like to sit there. I am so sick and tired of this behavior. So, after she got the drift, we waited for a table in the corner on the first floor. No apology, no nothing. SO, instead of ordering two bottles of $100 wine, i ordered one $50 bottle. The food is excellent. It's the damn rude assumptions that stinks. Good luck. We will never be back no matter how good the food is.
Our meal from start to finish was delicious but especially the finish. The desserts are worth the visit alone. We had good service throughout the meal. We were pleased with all our appetizers but especially love the. paradigm farm vegetables and smoked catfish dip. No serving spoons puzzled us but we made do. This was a repeat visit and we will come again!
Coquette was a wonderful restaurant! Our waitress was completely horrible. She did not know how to carry a conversation nor how to be helpful when It came to recommending items on the menu. She was so uncomfortable to talk to that every time she came to our table it made my date and myself cringe. The people who delivered our food were way more engaging and delightful to deal with than her actual waitress. I would come back but would hope to never see her again. I've been at phenomenal restaurants across United States and I've never had someone, at such a nice establishment, have such poor people skills and communication skills.
My son chose to treat me to an early Mother's Day dinner and we agreed on Croquette due to the proximity to our hotel and the interestingly creative dishes on their menu.
We booked our reservation one week ahead to make sure we could get in and received a call from the restaurant the day before confirming our reservation, time and checking on any food allergies/sensitivities. I appreciated this since I do have several food items I cannot eat.
We chose the "surprise me" 5-course chef's tasting menu and it was over-the-top fabulous! A great blend of foods, textures, tastes, etc. They started us with a "snack" which was shared, but it felt like a course. It was a fish dip with home-made crackers...delish! Then we had a salad course which was creatively arranged sticks of fresh and pickled veges, some greens, goat cheese and a fried ball with a meat mixture inside. Next was a soup which came out with the solid items in the center of the bowl and hot broth poured over it at our table. So tasty! Next was a fish course in a delectable sauce with a small serving of rice. Next came the steak with small portions of corn, potatoes and dotted with onion puree. Portions were just right! The palette cleanser was an "icy" with our choice of flavoring(s) in a small cup. This was the break between the four savory courses and the dessert course. The dessert course was a taste reenactment of a local drink. It included chocolate crumb nest for a small dip of raspberry ice cream, a rectangular block of chocolate moose, very think chocolate wafer-like thin slabs in the chocolate moose and some very interesting tasting dots of vanilla colored dots. When mixed with a bit of other items, what an explosion of different flavors! It was different but delightful! Then, after the dessert course, we had two small cookies..bonus!
All in all it was a lovely evening and we enjoyed the leisurely meal over 2 hours. It did not feel like we were waiting long at all between courses.
After eating six back to back excellent meals, we were delighted that Coquette surpassed them all! Not easy in this city that adores food and fun! Our first (and all the subsequent) bites told us that this chef knows his ingredients and how to meld them in a way that is both bold and sublime. We almost couldn't believe how good everything was!
Local art on the walls, an open kitchen, great staff, go there!
The tasting menu is a great way to experience the culinary talent of the chef and accompanying staff support explaining the presentations. The wine/drink pairings were very interesting, somewhat unconventional, added to the impact, and a good value. Very enjoyable dining experience.
Top 5 places to dine in NOLA. Love this place. Great service. Accommodate to special diets and allergies. Really helpful and knowledgeable staff. Amazing food top to bottom. Don't miss this place. Creative menu and so tasty. Lots of WOW when tasting the menu here. Can't think of anything bad about this place
Very eclectic, limited menu in this charming restaurant. Craft cocktails are interesting. I had a dirty martini made with pickle juice instead of olive juice. With so many choices of dining venues in New Orleans I wouldn't go back but will try someplace new.
Probably should have opted to sit inside, where the convenience store glare wasn't quite so distracting, but it was such a beautiful night, we erred in favor of a sidewalk table. Service was a little slow (likely because we were out of sight and out of mind outside), but the food more than exceeded our expectations. Would definitely go back. Just wouldn't sit outside.
We had an absolutely wonderful anniversary dinner at Coquette. We first ordered two of the small plates to share and the portions were larger than we expected - they were delicious!! I particularly enjoyed the small plate with some sort of rice and hogshead cheese. For the entrees, I had the Wagyu beef and my husband had the duck. No complaints for either dish - we ate almost every bite! We went all out and ordered the blood orange creme brûlée and the ice cream trio. OMG the honey ice cream was to die for...Most importantly, we had the most wonderful and attentive server. I wish I could remember her name, but she was so knowledgeable and genuine in her approach. She definitely took our experience to the next level. We look forward to coming back!
