Coquette Ratings and Reviews

Consistently one of the best places in the city. Little pricey but at least they hit the mark unlike so many other places charging the same amount. Really don't have many negative things to say except that probably would behoove you to make a reservation. Walking in can be hit or miss and sometimes they throw you a little attitude for even trying, which is annoying. It is in the middle of a neighborhood. People are going to try to walk in.

Spectacular. The food was interesting and flawless. The wait staff was a fine balance of friendly and professional, that is, welcoming but not cloying, knowledgeable but never intimidating. A great New Orleans place.

I strongly recommend the tasting menu - it was innovative, balanced and the right amount of food. This ranks up there with one of my favorite meals in NOLA and I've certainly had many great meals in this town. Not to be missed are the potato beignets with duck and the grits with shrimp - but everything was excellent.
I hear the Tuesday night blind tasting is a great option also.

Coquette never disappoints. Chef always amazes us with his culinary combinations. The staff is fantastic. My daughter made the comment on the way out that they were the friendliest staff of any restaurant we've ever been. Restaurants are our hobby and we would definitely keep this one our list

The restaurant itself is beautiful. It's the perfect atmosphere for a date night. It feels special but not overly pretentious. We went for the Tuesday night tasting menu and also ordered the optional wine pairings. Everything we had was delicious and unique! The wine pairings complemented the dishes perfectly. The service was great as well. The hostess, waitress, and sommelier were all very friendly and accommodating.

I couldn't have been more pleased with the service and the food at Croquettes. We initially had early reservations but since we were moving our daughter to grad school it took much longer than expected. Croquettes was happy to change our time and then to accommodate us when we were early to the new time. The restaurant is beautiful and the staff friendly. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. I was impressed and I know our daughter felt very special being taken to such a wonderful place.

We are fans, but this was our first Sunday brunch here. The brunch is a 3 course format, with 4-5 options for each course. The first course was underwhelming......none the 4 selections knocked it out of the park, in fact I'd say they were average at best. The chilled cobia just did not work well for my palette, they it was an "interesting" use of the fish. The remaining offerings for the final 2 courses were the expected "outstanding". The duck was superb as was the smoked brisket hash. The final course of deserts offering were solid with the yogurt selection outstanding. As always...the chef and waiter worked closely with my wife to accommodate her gluten and lactose allergies. Great brunch in a very non-traditional style.

The fried chicken on the "plates to share" was AMAZING. Very tasty and a hearty appetizer for two people -- would serve even more. (We took some home!) The eggplant, our entree, was also really good. The place was crowded when we arrived for our Saturday 9pm reservation and the hostess tried to seat us a table right next to the very busy entrance/exit. We noticed a small table for two by the front window that was available and away from the fray, and we politely asked if we could be seated there instead. The hostess hesitated for some reason, but then agreed. Everything from that point was perfectly pleasant and fun. The place was noisy at first but within a half hour or so the place started emptying out and got much quieter. We had the friendliest and best waiter ever (a woman with a big smile). We thoroughly enjoyed all our food, my friend loved her wine, and I devoured my excellent (though small) Cosmo. I'll definitely go back there! Superb food -- they obviously take pride in it.

The menu here is a moving target, so recommending dishes is pretty nearly useless. We've been here several times, and we've never been disappointed, so we are comfortable ordering whatever sounds/looks good. This time, brisket hash, duck confit, and a buffalo mozz salad were all acclaimed. Lauren was great.
The place is attractive, but the surfaces are hard!, so it gets loud as the crowd grows.
A little pricey for me or I'd eat here every week.

What a gem of a restaurant. From start to finish, I can't gush enough about this lovely place. In New Orleans for a conference. A colleague wanted to try the Garden District (we were closer to the French Quarter). Ubered there from the River Walk. The gentleman who seated us gave a brief synopsis of the menu. We started with the charcuterie plate. I want it now as I write this.... We each ordered the server's recommendations- all were amazing. The "Poulet Rouge" (please accept my apologies for incorrect spelling) was stellar. Cannot recommend this place any higher- ambience, food, price = trifecta!!!

Great dining experience. We were staying nearby and had heard good things about it. The menu is limited (a good sign, in my book) but offered several intriguing choices with an emphasis on fresh and seasonal. The food was delicious and portions were "right-sized" (neither too precious nor over-abundant). What really stood out for us was the service - our waiter was phenomenal. He was very knowledgeable about the wine list and all of the menu items, had spot-on recommendations, and was prompt with service. The restaurant is obviously doing something right when they're able to attract and retrain top-talent (our waiter said he'd worked at Coquette for many years). The atmosphere was nice - historic looking room with exposed brick and tin-ceiling. But somehow much quieter than I'd expect given the surfaces.

Friendly, attentive ,personal service is why Coqutte is our go to restaurant in a city of world class restaurants. The food is always prepared with care and the chefs parings are always spot on. My wife is a vegan and the kitchen accomodates her without hesitation. Happy wife happy life!

We went to Coquette for an early dinner with friends. We were seated immediately and offered menus and drink menus. The choices were myriad and diverse. They ranged from your "typical" New Orleans fare like shrimp and grits and "non-traditional" dishes such as cobia sashimi. We ordered two appetizers and then opted for the "blind course meal". We communicated that we were open for anything except for organ meats. We received delicious and satisfying plates that were original but not too "out there". Coquette is a bit pricey but I think one could dine there and have a wonderful meal without breaking the bank. I would definitely recommend.

My husband and I met another couple for brunch. The food and service were very good. I think $10 for a mimosa at brunch is a tad high. Overall the dining experience was good, but the bar bill steep. I would go back.

We ordered the catfish dip, scallops, and the drum fish. All very tasty. Fresh healthy ingredients.
Great wine selection. Sat at the bar for a cocktail before dinner. My husband ordered a martini, he said it wasn't the best but it certainly didn't put a damper on our experience. We would definitely go back.

What makes this restaurant so exceptional beyond the wonderful food and presentation is the service. It is always competent, but more than that, the wait staff makes you feel like they're glad you're there. I didn't see a glum face among them, and this must be a great place to work. This attitude more than any other single thing made our evening there just as remarkable as the previous two occasions we've dined at Coquette. Our table was no exception. From what I could see, everyone else was having just as good a time as we were. It's on our list whenever we visit New Orleans.

The inside was noisy due to hard surfaces so we chose to eat outside. It was quite nice- although, I was eaten by mosquitoes. They don't have any anti-mosquito lights or candles. The food was good. The service was very pleasant.

After spending more than half my life working in the food service industry I usually go out to dinner expecting to be, in some, way disappointed. That was far from the case when my husband and I dined at Coquet. Every sip of craft cocktail and every bite of our appetizers and entrees was perfectly delicious. The team of wait staff we had on the upper level was friendly and educated on the decor and all the ingredients. Every thing seamed to be wonderfully true and honest. Great job! Will definitely return if I find myself in town again.

Took my brother there for his bday. We did the 3 course brunch and every dish was amazing. He had the shrimp , catfish and peach parfait and I had gazpacho, duck confit and pie. I dine a lot all around the city so I believe I can tell a meal that stands out and this was the best meal we've had so far. We will visit again for sure.service was great !
