    A well-earned shout-out to La Coquette Brasserie where we celebrated our wedding dinner with my sisters and our friends last night. The restaurant provided spotless service, despite the fact that the collateral damage inflicted by our party included a scorched menu, spilling a full glass of champagne on the Bride's leather skirt, and dropping and breaking another wine glass. Even with all of this going on and unbeknownst to us, the chef used her own initiative to repair a smudged spot on the cake we had brought in for the occasion (damaged in transit), even mixing pink icing to match exactly. They brought it out for all to admire before plating and serving it. Outstanding! We'll be back every year for our anniversary.

    The restaurant is in a great neighborhood and easy to get to. The service is quick and the wait staff is attentive. I was disappointed with the small menu. I hate poached eggs and I was able to have eggs of my choice, so accomodating to the client's individual tastes are done. The eggs and meat lacked something. The scones were wonderful.

    Had a great brunch with a friend. The food was great. I had Eggs Florentine & she had Apple/Bacon/Jam crepe. The place was very busy. I was glad I made a reservation. The volume was high, so it wasn't great for a long visit. But the staff was friendly & attentive. And the visit put us in a great mood for the rest of the day. We plan to return.

    I always enjoy the food at Croquette. I would have given 5 stars for food but I did not enjoy my dessert. I had the crepe smores and I expected something rich and gooey and warm and it was cold and very chewy. Not for me. The duck was amazing and so was the beef carpaccio. Highly recommend. My husband and I go often and we always enjoy ourselves.

    I really like this place. Have been at 6-8 times. Very consistent. Really good food. Fun vibe. Good service. I usually get the Alsacian Tart and Moules. Love them both. This past time I got the steak frites with bernaise sauce. It was perfect. The creme brulee was a little thin but still yummy. The couple next to us say they visit a couple times a month and always get the french onion soup. I lived in Paris for 6 months and have been back almost a dozen times. Coquette's isn't the same as a bistro in Paris, but it is a good American substitute.

    Dined on 9/24/2014
    We went for my birthday dinner, I had the special, which was good and the amount of food was a nice portion. My husband ordered the scallops and was very disappointed. There were 4 quarter sized scallops, cut into 4 pieces each, 3 fingerling potatoes- cut into pieces and 1 small piece of squash, all for the grand price of $26!!!! We commented to our waiter and we the manager. She said that was the normal serving - 4 scallops for dinner and that lunch was only 2 scallops! This was his second disappointing experience at this restaurant and he will not return. There was a note made on the reservation that we were celebrating my birthday - not even a "happy day" or "hope you had a nice birthday" comment.

    I took my wife here for her Birthday dinner. I made it a point to note on the reservation that we were celebrating her Birthday, as most nicer restaurants will make an effort to do something a little special for such events. I ordered the Coq Au Vin, which was pretty good. Not stellar, but it was good. My wife ordered the Beef Bourguignon, which was not very good. These were both ordered at the recommendation of our waiter. For dessert I ordered the Butterscotch Creme Brulee, which was good, but there was hardly a teaspoon of dessert in the dish. Wife had Gateau De Crepe, not very good at all. And lastly, not even a Happy Birthday from the waiter for my wife! Not a good experience and we will not return.

    I have eaten at the Coquette Brasserie both for lunch and dinner. We had out of town friends visiting for a weekend and wanted to take them to a place with good food and atmosphere and somewhere that is not a chain. They were very impressed with the dinner choices and the four of us enjoyed our dinner very much. The service was good but not obtrusive.

    I went there for my wife's birthday and neither of us had been there before. The weather was ideal so the window walls were open and it felt just like we were completely outside. The only thing better was the food. My only complaint was the ribeye I ordered had more fat on it than I would have liked but the flavor was superb.

    We have dined here several times over the years. Both for lunch and dinner. Today was lunch and it was the first time we sat at the counter at the Zinc Bar. Beautiful. Quiche Lorraine is a classic with mixed green salad and vinegarette dressing. Crust was buttery, crispy, huge almost dinner sized portion, custardy egg cooked perfectly with a little crispy crust and plenty of meaty filling. Delish!

    Went to Coquette Brasserie for Sunday brunch. It was the first time we'd been there and we'll be back. Glad we had reservations! The food was excellent and beautifully presented. Our server was courteous, friendly and attentive. The ambiance was very nice. The only complaint we have is the noise level. Even with baffles on the high ceiling there were times when the noise was almost unbearable and we had to shout to carry on a conversation.

    The food was over priced for the quality. The only thing I would order in the future are the mussels and frittes. The ribeye ordered raw was chewy, the fish special's sauce was subpar. On the other hand, the kid's burger was excellent and the hanger streak was very good. Hit or miss.

    We were welcomed at the door with a smile and even given our choice of seating. We''ve been many times and knew we were in for a wonderful meal. However our server brought the evening down when we asked for the "ends" of the bread.Every other time this has never been a problem. This server said, " I'll see where the loaf is ". So we received one little end. My wife's main dish was soup we asked for a bit more bread, She said, "maybe a few slices",She never returned. Another server brought soup, very nice, friendly guy… even started a conversation with us.. he asked if he could get anything else, yes bread please! He immediately came back with the bread!

    The service was very good and accommodating as we had several small children in our group. The offered 1/2 orders for the children from the main menu if there was not anything on the child's menu they wanted. The food was excellent. I would defiantly go there again. We went for brunch, but my next trip will be for dinner.

    I was very disappointed in several aspects of our Sunday brunch: 1) eggs any style in the menu was 2 eggs but they wouldn't make an omelet even though I wanted a 2 egg omelet. I had to order. 3 egg omelet with only cheese but they charged me the full price of a specialized omelet. 2) what French reataurant that serves dessert creeps does not have whipped cream? Extremely limited menu and very disappointing

    _Coquette Brasserie_ is an excellent French restaurant in the North Hills mall. One of the few places around that still serves escargots, the soupe à l'oignon is very good, and the bœuf bourguignon is nothing short of outstanding. Other dishes are equally rave-worthy; everything I've had there has compared favourably with dishes I've had in Paris, Nice, and Cannes. Not being a drinker, I can't speak to the quality of their cellar. It's perhaps a little pricey, but you're paying for quality and authenticity. Parking is reasonably good; I'm told you can ignore the 'two-hour visitor' paint on the spaces in the nearest lot. The facilities are clean and well-appointed.

    In every city across the globe we all are delighted to discover outposts of our favorite comfort cuisine; whether it be fish and chips, the juiciest burger or the latest gastro-moleculer transformation of an oxtail into a martini olive, the craving is the same - in my case it is the French Bistro and everything it brings to the table like the expert and inspired handling of the essential classic dishes. of course the hollandaise is real and well seasoned all steak is tender every crisp leaf of green is dressed to enhance All of this presented by a well trained waitstaff that clearly knows the menu and the dining room Coquette delivers on every anticipated aspect with a first rate level of execution..and so I'll be back again in a fortnight.

    Food was excellent. As a side note, there's no longer bottomless mimosas for $10. It's been replaced with $2 mimosas, which wasn't a problem because my wife and I had 4 a piece. Turned out cheaper in the end. Also, the 2 person tables are very low. We would request a 4 person table to be more comfortable.

    Met a friend for a late lunch. Reservation at 2. Tomato bisque was good. presentation nice. Good selection in wine and not just the standards. Service was incredibly slow and given there were so few customers and a LARGE serving staff this was surprising. It appeared that the serving staff was not working well as a team. The manager had to clear our table and we waited for over 20 mins to get the dessert menu. Not the best in french (perhaps due to it being a chain) but good enough for local diners.
