Coquette Ratings and Reviews

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!

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!
