Diner Reviews
  • "Food was not as good as we expected it to be. Sweetbreads tasted like generic fried food and we're too salty. Duck was good, but portion too small. Charcuterie plate wasn't nearly as good as that at R'Evolution. The service was excellent. We heard later this restaurant recently lost its chef. "

  • "Served a very expensive bottle of champagne at room temperature. They did take the bottle back but only after 30 minutes of trying to chill it on ice. "

  • "Go and try for yourself, staff is keen and attentive, food is bold and not afraid to be interesting. Great dinner very memorable. Just go already... Oh and it's reasonably priced. Enjoy"

  • "Excellent staff. Very excited and passionate about the incredible food presented. Sweet breads were a favorite course, as was the amazing grilled red fish. The strawberry gremolata was a perfect pallet cleanser before the most unique and delicate mint ice cream and grapefruit cream dessert. Unexpected flavors and surprisingly perfect together. The Gnome's cup was a refreshingly light cocktail to start out our evening. We returned the next day to have another drink at the bar. The manager, Jacob, was welcoming upon our return. Had a great chat with him. "

  • "Awesome meal and fanstastic service! Loved the farm fresh options and the entrees were outstanding (catfish and duck). We made our reservation a few weeks in advance and we're glad we did. If you're staying in the French Quarter it's well worth the short cab ride out to the Garden District for this one!"

  • "Food and wait staff was excellent. Lovely ambience and imaginative menu was marred by a rude hostess. We were running 20 minutes late and received a call that our table would be given away if we didn't arrive by 7:50 for a 7:30 reservation. We arrived in time and observed that the restaurant was only half filled. An empty threat that was overcome by a wonderful culinary experience."

  • "A bit of a departure from typical New Orleans fare. Wonderful locally sourced and seasonal items combined with imagination and a restrained touch."

  • "My husband and I enjoy every visit to Coquette and while dining we rave about the experience. The fresh ingredients combined with masterful preparation by a very talented chef makes Coquette our favorite restaurant in New Orleans. Bravo!"
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "Great meal. Considerably better than last visit. Snapper crudo outstanding. Frozen coconut, cucumber, basil, sesame desert one of the best things I've eaten in years, sweet or savory. And I wasn't even hungry by then. Kudos to pastry chef and whoever executed."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "The portions are small and the cuisine is farm to table as they say, but highly manipulated. The trout was very tasty."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Though our pompano fish main course and shared coconut desert were outstanding, we started with two versions of roasted veggie - stunning combinations, perfectly prepared, dressed lightly - and deliciously!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "I'm conflicted about these ratings. My food was excellent. The local vegetable salad was, perhaps, the prettiest dish I have ever been served. It was excellent, as well. My pork tenderloin was very good. My wife's duck was superior, but her brussels sprouts "salad" wasn't so great. The Nori dressing wasn't our cup of tea. The ambiance was OK - more like a local bar than an upscale restaurant - yes, I still want a table cloth and something other than wood and brick for décor. Our "assistant server" was delightful and excellent. Our "main server," not so much. We didn't see much of her. And, I would think someone in the place would be able to speak about the wine other than to say "medium body.""

  • "The place is beautiful - magnificent bar. It took 20 minutes to be served. We chose the 5 course tasting menu with paired wines. Most courses were inventive and delicious. The seared duck breast, was way over salted. Too many dishes relied too heavily on various iterations of mustards. The dessert though, was perfect. Not one staff person knew one single thing about any of the wines served. When I asked about one in particular, the wait staff picked up the bottle and read the label to us. Wait staff were not sharply professional and clearly there were menu/wine training issues. The evening was OK. Won't go back any time soon."

  • "I enjoyed a mini girls night n New Orleans after driving in from a day of work in Mississippi. The food, drink, and company were perfect. After having lived in New Orleans for 35 years, I've come to expect amazing food, and Coquette delivers! The food is classic but prepared with such a modern twist. I've visited Coquette with a former two-time Chef of New Orleans, and he agrees that this is what food needs to be, that Coquette offers a culinary experience and not just a meal. I will certainly be back in the future!"

  • "The bar is beautiful; the food is unique and interesting - and the ambiance is delightful. Highly recommended - a favorite of locals in the neighborhood."

  • "amuse bouche - Smoked catfish dip amuse bouche - fried oyster on a piece of short rib 1) beef tartare, tossed with a light dijon, with a pink peppercorn creme fraiche (Prosecco) 2) a "salad" of fried brussels sprouts and roasted turnips on a nori aoili (cuvee rose) 3) red snapper in a clam broth (which was quite milky), with fresh lima beans and chunks of thick cut bacon (pino gris) 4) pan-roasted duck breast beside a confit duck leg, and atop a tamirand mustard sauce and a drizzle of cane syrup with some sort of greens that I can't remember (granache) amuse bouche - a palette cleanser of strawberry champagne snoball, with condensed milk, 5) a grapefruit curd (dessert prosecco) I can't wait to do it again. Best dinner I've had."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "The food exceeded expectations. The cured meats board was delicious and would have been perfect for a larger table. It was too much for us. The local veggies was a divine fresh salad. My hanger steak was full of flavor and quite tender. But the service was much too slow and it was quite loud. Still worth the trip and then some for the food."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "I think there has been a change in the chef and or the ambitions of this restaurant from a few years ago. The fun bar ambiance remains. Good bar tenders who have a lot of imagination and are adventurous. I'm less thrilled about the food. The food has had novel aspects to it but I find that the description of the food is bigger than the food itself. I realize that is tres chic and all the rest but, small plates do not have to microscopic."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Located in a beautiful area with old houses worth a new visit. The menu is not large which is good since the atention given to the plates is phenomenal. Tried the ceviche for starter which has a wonderful semi sweet sauce. Our party had the duck which is sublime as well as the snapper, also very well conceived and executed. There are some tables outside and the restaurant has two floors. Wine list appropriate and at easonable prices. All in all an excellent experience."

  • "This was a wonderful opportunity for us visitors to get off the beaten tourist - Bourbon Street - track. Recommended by a local, Coquette met our expectations for well-conceived and presented food and drink. Great update on old-world atmosphere, friendly staff, and thoughtful service! Daily market menu means every day is different. Fish, vegetables, duck - all were excellent."
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "While Coquette came highly recommended, our evening was less than stellar. The Air Conditioning kept coming on right above us and making it very cold for bursts of time. The staff seemed quite chilly too. They were very efficient and made good recommendations, but it felt like we were doing them a favour by being there. When we mentioned the temperature, they said they knew it was a problem. The final issue with the cool was that our mains were just that, cool. The plates were cold and the food was somewhat as well. They apologized, but nothing else. Maybe we just caught them on an off night? The smoked wild catfish was delicious and I enjoyed my steak tartar. With so many other wonderful restaurants to try we won't be rushing back."

  • "Great Farm-to-Table cooking with small but inventive menu. Great cocktail and wine list with a nice selection of wines by the glass which I appreciate. Inventive but not pretentious with friendly, well-informed staff. Highly recommended."

  • "My wife and I have now dined three times at Coquette. All three dinners were superb. In our latest experience we received the same excellent service, enjoyed their nice wine list and were blown away with our meal starting with the cured meat appetizer. The chef is great at pairing ingredients to achieve interesting and tasty combinations. We will go back whenever in New Orleans."

  • "Coquette's 5 course blind tasting menu will convert you to eat more veggies! Loved the roasted beets, fried Brussels sprouts and turnips. Who knew you could magically transform these side dishes into something irresistibly delicious. Please pass the vegetables!!"
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "I've been dining at Coquette since it opened, and the food & atmosphere are still great, but I've noticed some lowering of service standards lately - a little abrupt. Chef has always been rigid about requests to alter a dish, e.g., by removing or substituting an ingredient. Usually I have no problem with that, as the dishes are so creative, delicious & well thought out. This time, however, it was bothersome, as I had called specifically to inquire about a friend with serious gluten intolerance, & was told that accommodating her would be no problem. What that turned out to be was a recitation of the dishes with no gluten, not an offer to modify any but 1 dish,. With such a small menu to begin with, my friend's options were pretty limited."

    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "We excitedly anticipated our first experience at Coquette. While the food did not disappoint and was beautifully prepared, delicious, and lovingly presented, the poor service all but mitigated the wonderful food. While the food at Coquette is great, one is better served to go to another establishment that delivers good service because after all-dining is an experience and you should feel entirely satisfied at its conclusion. We felt unappreciated and dejected. Not a wonderful birthday experience as we'd hoped."

  • "Coquette is a good restaurant with a beautiful bar and a calm upstairs dining room. We shared plates among three people and found about half the dishes very creative and interesting. All ingredients were good. Desserts truly outstanding. Some dishes lacked pizazz. Overall a good choice for "new" New Orleans cuisine."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "We had a fantastic meal at Coquette. Both our appetizers were delicious and unique. Our main courses (red snapper and duck) were wonderful. Our desserts were also the best. This restaurant is definitely worth a return visit."

  • "The best food of our trip, and amazing service too. The food went well beyond typical for this city (which already ohas a high standard) and the service was even more so."

  • "We enjoyed a Friday night dinner for two after completing business in New Orleans, before the drive back home to the Gulf Coast of Mississippi. Loved the second floor dining room- more quiet than the first floor where there is a nice bar/tables. The windows on the second floor bring in a lot of light and add to the warmth of Coquette's. The wait staff was knowledgeable and very nice. The food was terrific! We will come again."
