Outstanding food and serviceService was wonderful. My salmon was delicious and perfectly done. My wife had the trout. It was fresh and delicious!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial luncheon celebrationThe atmosphere, food and service were superb! Could not imagine a lovelier afternoon.
Kudos to the chef, servers and management team that made it happen!6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWowTook my wife here for our 1 year anniversary. We immediately fell in love with the place the moment we walked in. The decor was superb, the bar classy, and the layout great. We were seated immediately, and had drinks on the table in 5 minutes and apps in less than 10. The server was very knowledgeable, on both food and beer (great draft selections). The food was amazing (my wife and I are hardcore foodies). We'll definitely be going back!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday girlFood was excellent as was the service. Always enjoy the food weather it is lunch or dinner. The windows open so you can sit and people watch. It is a little bit of Paris right here in Raleigh.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother wonderful meal at CoquetteThe food (except for the desert) was excellent. I had a wonderful filet mignon and my wife had a great pan-seared flounder. The truffle fries are awesome. Everything but this carmel desert we had was wonderful. It may have been a personal preference thing on the desert, so not a big enough deal to not recommend.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was goodBut it didn't wow me. Pretty standard uppity French restaurant. Service was wonderful though: prompt and friendly6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMCoquetteCoquette has very good food and excellent service. I have enjoyed eating there over the past couple of years. The one big negative of Coquette is the chairs. They are very uncomfortable and not appropriate for this level of French restaurant. I have been to France 5 times in the past 7 years and in my experience, these chairs are found more in a cafe then in a brasserie.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMBottomless Mimosas...We made our reservations for noon on a Sunday and were immediately seated. I was impressed with our server and her recommendations. My only concern were the bottomless mimosas...they were more o.j. than champagne. Not a great thing if the acid upsets your stomach. I will definitely go back, the food was very tasty and the atmosphere was energetic.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service were bothFood and service were both great. Attentive and quick without feeling rushed. Will definitely be back.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoy lunch in a buzzing atmosphereThe Croquette Burger with melted Brie and onion was very special...juicy meat on a croissant role. Yum! Tuna on the salad nicoise was cooked to order. I'm not accustomed to a mixed Niçoise salad (usually beds of vegetables on top), but I enjoyed it. The white anchovy were an authentic touch. Note: white anchovy are nothing like the brown, oily, fishy things they put on pizza...they are mild and relish.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my FavoritesThis has been a favorite for several years and my recent visit did not disappoint. It was a first date for me and my date and I think that atmosphere and quality couldn't be better. I had the pan seared duck breast, while she had the salmon. Both were excellent. I also had a glass of the Cabernet which was well priced and very tasty. I highly recommend!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMYumHad a great time here celebrating a big birthday with some friends. The service was courteous but not overbearing and the food was phenominal. Definitely recommend dessert, too, even if your full :-)... The pastry chef is incredible. We shared 3 desserts and I'd highly recommend their blueberry clafoutis and the frozen chocolate mousse. Will go back again and soon!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMReally good traditional FrenchReally good traditional French cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent DiningFood was great and it was a very nice treat for the family.

Never disappointed.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dateMy wife and I enjoyed the ambiance, the food and the wine selection. This restaurant is a gem5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways reliably great foodAlways reliably great food and good menu options for all appetites. Accommodating, efficient staff.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice find in a Raleigh MallI was in Raleigh on business & found this restaurant on OPen Table. I was a bit skeptical but reviewers lead me to a great place. Classic French Bistro, excellent foie gras which I can't get in my home in San Francisco. Nice reasonably priced wine list, good steak frites (although the frites were nothing special), great cheese plate. Excellent service. I will definitely go there on my next rip to Raleigh.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightful !!A very enjoyable mothers Day breakfast was enjoyed by all >>5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for Mother's Day brunchI remembered the morning of that I had not called to update my reservation to ask for an outlet; my daughter, who was born after I made the reservation, is on a heart monitor. I called that morning (Mother's Day), and they were able to find us a very baby-friendly table right next to an outlet. The service was excellent, as was most of the food. The coffee was wonderful, even the decaf, and they kept our cups full. If we are in the area again, we will stop back for sure!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNice Mother's Day brunchVery surprised and pleased to see reasonably priced specials plus regular brunch menu for Mother's Day5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat good and atmosphereThe food was great and the atmosphere reminded me of New Orleans... never been to France.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellence ExtraordinaireThe food (best quiche EVER) and Mimosa' s were Tres Bon. Our server, Kendra, was a DELIGHT!!!!! She was professional, friendly AND fun !!!!
We will return to Coquette again AND again !!!! Oh, and Beignets to "die for". And truffled Pomme Frites, YUUUUUMMMMMMM!!!
Doria Hopp5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMQuiche to die forI go to Coquette Brasserie especially for the quiche. It is superb in all the right categories. Melt-in-your-mouth light and smooth with all the right ingredients no matter which one you choose to order.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGood place to eatFood was excellent. We didn't have to wait for table at all.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBack for more!My wife and I have been to Coquette's on 4 or 5 occasions and each time the food, service and ambiance has been excellent. Definitely one of our favorite restaurants in the Southeast.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMService was friendly and efficientService was friendly and efficient - server did not rush our party and was very polite. Food was excellent and served quickly, but not so much that you seemed rushed out the door. Excellent wine list selection as well.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMA favoriteLove the french ambiance of Coquette's. The menu selections are all delicious and we've tried several but the very best reason to go to Coquette's is their perfect escargots. Can not resist these every time we go. Also salad nicoise is delicious!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat againon our must dine locale whenever our team is in Raleigh. the food is superb and the service excellent.
reminds me of the bistros in the south of France where I have a second home5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Restaurant in RsleighExcellent service and food. French comfort food and lots to choose from.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBest French Restaurant in the AreaI just love this restaurant. The food is perfectly prepared every time. The service is wonderful and friendly. The desserts are out of this world. Great for foodies! The wine was fine. I can't say enough good things about this place. We've been there now 5 or 6 times and it has been extraordinary every. single. time. Love it!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe saw a musical at the DukeWe saw a musical at the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts and then a great dinner at Coquette Brasserie before returning home. It was a great way to gather, talk about the performance and eat wonderful food.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Restaurant met all myThe Restaurant met all my expectations for brunch. the only downer was that the crust on the bread used for the Eggs Benedict was partially burned which effected the taste for some portions of the meal. Otherwise every thing else was excellent.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMHave been to this wonderfulHave been to this wonderful restaurant many times, and will return many more. Tried some new dishes this time - petite alsatian tart was creamy & delicious on a very thin crust; the mussels in red pepper w. chorizo sauce was double the usual portion of moules frites elsewhere, and of course their frites are superior.
Our waiter wasn't familiar enough with the beer selections to recommend anything but they did have my favorite aperitif, Lillet, and that always rates some extra points.
Overall a great bistro/brasserie feel and menu.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a lovely meal at Coquette,We had a lovely meal at Coquette, the service and food were excellent, it was a breezy day and the windows were all open - felt just like a french bistro!
One thing to note - if you go there for lunch, be aware that you need to let the staff know if you have a time limit, our meal was very relaxed and enjoyable, but we were a bit panicky when we realized how much time had gone by and we had to return to work!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was great as usual.The food was great as usual. Service was a little lacking compared with other visits to this restaurant. Noise level is always a little higher than I like but there is not much that can be done given the overall design of the building.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMTastey, but time to change the menuThe food was good, but its been the same menu. Although there are specials, we are tired of the same offerings. The beauty of a French Bistro is that it can re-invent its offering to keep it fresh.
Loved the beet salad and the french toast was yummy. Fruit and yogurt seemed typical and uninteresting. French onion soup was loaded with onion and melty cheese.
Dissappointed to learn that the chef who won "Chef Wanted" wasn't onboard.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first visit toThis was our first visit to Coquette. The food was very good. I had the scallops and my dining partner had the pork. She ordered the pork medium but it arrived medium rare. It was returned to the kitchen and came back quickly at the right temperature. Both dishes were delicious. We ordered the profiteroles with cherry vanilla ice cream and frozen chocolate mousse for desert. They were excellent as well. The cherry vanilla ice cream was tart and the warm chocolate sauce was rich.
The noise level was high but we could still hold a conversation.
We'll definitely return.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was fantastic. IThe food was fantastic. I am on a GF diet so I often get nervouse trying a new place but these guys handled my special diet beautifully. My ONLY complaint, was a reaction from our server. Yes, it was a Friday night and we had reservations, and I'm sure that at that sort of place our ordering of water to drink was abnormal.... I am pregnant and my husband is a coke person (they serve Pepsi products) so we ordered water at the onset. The look on our waitresses face was utter disappointment when we did. I have been in the food service industry before, but the expression on her face was unnecessary. We did order a starter and made sure to leave a good tip even though we didn't have a huge alcohol tab.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for a night out with friendsWhat a great evening out with friends! Coquette was wonderful. I was meeting a friend and as it turned out our group grew by one and they accomodated us with no issue. Our waiter was friendly and explained the items on the menu (our French is pretty bad). Everyone enjoyed their food and dessert was fabulous.
Highly recommend.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMCoquette made my birthday happy!Went to Coquette for my birthday. I am a foodie so I love to try new restaurants, however, my brother is very picky so I have to write my review based on his response. He cleaned his plate! We started with oysters, escargot and the truffle frites which were to die for. I had the scallops which were perfectly seared and accompanied by all the right components. Both my mom and brother had steak with frites and both said they were cooked to perfection. Overall an excellent meal and I am planning to return for Mother's Day! Service was good and the ambiance was energetic. The acoustics are not super great so if you have a group, this might be a great place but for a quiet romantic dinner, not so much.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time atThis was our first time at Coquette for brunch and we loved the experience! Look forward to returning for dinner and another brunch.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI'll be back...I heard good things about Coquette from coworkers so thought I should check it out. I thought Coquette was a really nice restaurant. The food was great, the atmosphere was great and very French, and I love the partially outdoor seating areas that replicate little Parisian terraces. Very cute. I went for dinner but was told by a coworker that brunch is even better so I shall be returning for brunch.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMONE OF TOP [LAXES IN RALEIGH.OVERALL EXPERIENCE WAS AWESOME.
