Coquette Ratings and Reviews
A colleague and I had the pleasure of dining at Coquette on no-menu Tuesday. Our five-course dinner demonstrated the kitchen's exceptional creativity, skill, and talent. Every course was delectable and a delight to our taste buds. Lovely setting, good wine selection, and excellent service. I'd highly recommend Coquette to anyone with a discriminating palate.
I'm not one for small plates or surprises. However, I ordered the Chef's Surprise. It was a real gamble in my opinion. I did not expect the 5 course surprise meal to be filling or perfect for my pallet. EACH selection he chose was perfect. The meal was incredibly filling and so surprisingly tasty. Perfect meal. Perfect service. Perfect atmosphere.
We selected the Chef's choice and wine pairing! It was fabulous! Each dish was fresh, creative and absolutely delicious! I'm still thinking about our meal!!! The wines were picked to perfectly pair with each course! One of my new favorites in New Orleans!!! I am Vegan and my husband is not. Each dish was superbly crafted and made special for each of us! This dining experience exceeded my desire for me to try and find something Vegan. The food and wine was outstanding!
We were in New Orleans escaping Hurricane irma and chose Coquette for a night out. A cozy, neighborhood feel on Magazine St in the Garden District area. I nice big bar (notable for the whiskey selection!) fifteen or so tables and friendly service. As nice as the ambiance is (BTW, the music selection was stellar) the food is the star. I had an updated version of an Old fashioned (I forget their name for it) that included some cold brew coffee, it was excellent. Nice, approachable wine list. We split a Small plate of burrata with muscadine, boiled peanuts, sunflower seed, basil that was great. My wife had a vegetarian dish with tempura shrimp, faro and long grain rice, she loved it. I had a chicken dish that was essentially chicken thigh stuffed with chicken and other delectables, then wrapped in the chicken skin and served like a hot, yummy sushi roll with a delicious sauce. original and super tasty. Crazy eclair with popcorn and caramel pictured. Go, enjoy. This place is legit!
This was soooo unexpected! What a delight! This is, without a single doubt, the BEST meal I have had in New Orleans! The food was an inconceivably intricate, exquisite, balanced and blended textural explosion of the gustatory senses. The service was top shelf from every soul in that gorgeous establishment. I felt like I was in the home of a dear friend who pulled all the stops just for me so that I could have the best experience possible! Well done, folks! You all worked together with the culinary ninjas in the kitchen to create a meal fit for an emperor! Thank you a million times over! I will be back with my friends very soon!!
I rarely give 5 stars for anything ( I eat out 360 nights/ year and compare everything to a restaurant outside of Paris that was definitely 5 stars). Camille, our server, could not have been better.
We had a variety of small plates-- happy to see vegetarian options-- and they were good. My friends and I were also amazed at how reasonable the prices were. The three of us remembered higher prices.
I'm lucky to live in the area within walking distance of this delightful restaurant. Food is always uniquely delicious, service is always friendly and I'm never disappointed. My guest for Labor Day weekend had never been to NOLA so I put this on our must-do list. He was very impressed, we had a memorable evening and I earned extra points for my good taste. We especially liked the chocolate pudding, which on this particular evening was paired with house-made mint ice cream. Thank you, Coquette!
Second visit as GREAT as the first. Love visiting New Orleans for the food. Always do my homework well in advance to find new & interesting restaurants. There is always a slew of new spots in New Orleans. Try to visit & experience a new place, at least new to us whether weeks old or years old, each night we're here. But my friends said we had to do a repeat to Coquette based on our outstanding meal last year. So we returned. We were so glad we did. Once again the meal was outstanding - a real culinary treat. The crab stew was delicious & filled with unexpected ingredients & textures. Outstanding! For my main course I did something I rarely do & totally unexpected. Even though each offering sounded wonderful, I ordered the "chicken." Chicken! I can cook flavorful chicken. But not like this...the okra side & the yogurt sauce elevated each mouthful to haute cuisine. The chocolate pudding....yep, Chocolate Pudding! The pudding was a small block of heaven - more solid & dense than a typical creamy pudding with shaved slivers of dark chocolate protruding from all side. Plus a dollop of the "Mintiest" mint ice cream I've ever tasted. More fireworks for my happy palate. A perfect meal. Don't miss this incredible gem in New Orleans.
HMMMMM. This is not a good time to write a review as unbeknownst to me, this was NO MENU TUESDAY. We should have been told upon booking but we were not. I am an adventurous foodie but my guest was not. Fortunately, the food met her liking but we really would have liked a fore warning. Oh, BTW, No Menu Tuesday means a prixe fix menu that is a surprise and there are no other options that evening. Actually, the food was wonderful, fun, inventive, and thank goodness they didn't serve my guest organ meats. I would have loved it, but it would have ruined her night.
This restaurant is nothing like it used to be. The wait staff seemed occupied with other things and everybody was most non-talkative. Food was just OK - nothing special. Was very very noisy. Lights went dim while we were there for no apparent reason. Will not be going back there.
We had the tasting menu with wine pairing. The food was good-not great. I expected it to be a bit more interesting and flavorful than it was. Definitely not at the level of Restaurant August, Compere Lapin, and a few other NOLA restaurants. It is a grievous interior. We sat on the second floor and had a speciality cocktail before we started. The cocktail was terrific. The weird thing about where we sat was that there was a large group celebrating a birthday sitting at the two front tables and not in a private room or anything. It really made the noise levels rise and was a. It unpleasant-like we had front row sets to a strangers birthday party.
My husband and I own a restaurant in AZ. This was recommended by a friend in the industry.
We went to this restaurant as a group of 6 for my 30th birthday. Great wine and cocktails. Food was outstanding. We had gone to two James beard restaurants on our trip as well but this was 10x better. Server could have been a bit more attentive but we had a great experience.
We did the chef's choice menu. Every course was amazing. There was no detail not tended to -- flavors brilliantly matched. Even the palette cleanse was delightful -- chef's take on an Arnold Palmer -- lemon sorbet with a tea granita. Dessert was outstanding! The service was terrific! Cannot wait to go back.
We ordered appetizers to split between four of us and had to track our waitress down and request serving spoons. The food was hit and miss depending on what you ordered. Noise level was high due to a large party. Even though we were seated at the opposite end of the restaurant the acoustics were not conducive to private conversations.
Coquette is our neighborhood restaurant but we don't go very often because my husband has other favorites. I asked him to take me to brunch last Sunday before I flew off to Denver. We both had a fantastic brunch meal that worked as lunch as well. The grilled artichokes were wonderful and the profiteroles ended the meal on a high note. We will definitely return for brunch (and I for lunch!).
My wife and I wouldn't miss a trip to Coquette whenever we go to New Orleans (which seems to be getting more frequently!). We always stay at the wonderful B&B, The Terrell House, which is just up the street (Magazine) and the first place we go, whether for just a drink or dinner is Coquette. We've stopped in for dinner, brunch, early appetizers when we have later plans, and just to sit at the bar and have some great concoction. It's a fun place and everything we have ever gotten there, food or drink, has been wonderful! Don't miss it!
