Coquette Ratings and Reviews
My wife and I did the tasting menu before a show at the Saenger Theatre. We had an outstanding experience, and had no issues keeping the meal under two hours. We've had the tasting menu on previous trips to Coquette. I'm continuously impressed by how much it changes each time. I can't recommend Coquette highly enough. Incredible food, courteous staff, and unbelievable value for the product. We'll definitely be back!
We had an outside table to better enjoy the Saint Patrick's Day passers-by. I liked it a bit better before they had speakers outside, but it wasn't too loud. The food and cocktails were fantastic, even by Coquette standards. I had not been to Coquette in nearly a year, but tonight's meal put them back top-of-mind for a walking distance date.
My wife and I went to Coquette celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. We chose the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairing. The food, wine, and service were exemplary. The staff made us feel very welcome. Highly recommend for anyone wanting a special occasion or nice night out. It fits both.
We went for my birthday on the recommendation of my friend. IT was SPECTACULAR! Definitely recommend the tasting menu - quite the food journey! Our server was very personable, our sommelier very knowledgeable, and the overall dining experience was top notch! We would absolutely go back there. Might be one of my favorite places in New Orleans - 10s across the board!
If you're looking for authentic New Orleans food, this isn't the place. This place tries a little to hard to be hipster with a daily changing menu that doesn't have any New Orleans go to dishes or New Orleans identity. The small plates are the perfect portions and best sounding dishes. Don't get any shared dishes, the bread is amazing and way better than anything on the shares. Highly recommend some staple dishes that are on the menu every day rather than all dishes changing each day.
Everything was fresh and delicious. The beef tartare, served with a unique and successful blend of ingredients, was served with homemade tater tots. We also shared tuna crudo and a rice and crawfish tails dish. Both were flavorful and prepared perfectly. Service was impeccable.
Wonderful meal and excellent service! Menu is small but everything is delicious and dishes change seasonally. Dishes are have local flair but unique & creative with flavours - don't skip desert! Service was great & very friendly, couldn't ask for more. Highly recommend & will definiatly be back!
Outstanding food. Loved the Wine. The crudo and cauliflower were delicious as were the short ribs and smoked catfish dip.
The brûlée was our favorite dessertand the tres leches, though not what I was expecting, was good.
Our waiter was attentive, but slightly awkward.
My biggest complaint, though it didn't dampen our night, was the tightness of space. I felt slightly claustrophobic when we first arrived, but I felt much more comfortable once we were seated.
On the short side: outstanding! My wife is Gluten free (Celiac) for eleven years, and, this restaurant served one of the best meals, we've had, in that time. Three different courses each, and, each one, was complex with flavors layered; a true adventure in culinary. Service was understated, but, attentive. Street parking. and, they might consider a valet. We both still wonder how they made the chocolate pudding which is a classic. They have a very good product.
I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. My girlfriends and I visited NOLA for a bachelorette weekend and they did a tasting menu and specialty cocktails for all of us with a selection to choose from. They were extremely accommodating and eager to please and the food and wine pairing was unbelievable! Just went the extra mile with service and friendliness and everything was fantastic. I cannot recommend them enough. thanks to Chris and the Coquette team! :-)
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 vibe 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.
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.
