    _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.

    Very nice for Sunday brunch, but busy. Make a reservation don't try walk in you wont be happy. Service usually keeps pace but can get a little bogged down due to how busy it gets. Steak frittes is particularly good; and if you eat eggs, the quiche and any poached dishes are excellent. The breads are nicely done of course. Bottomless mimosa 10.00 Bloody Mary very tasty scratch made, but a little expensive @ 8.00/ea. décor pleasant, dining area and facilities very clean and well appointed.

    I dined last week for my birthday (Coquette is my choice EVERY year for my birthday). I had moules frites (shared) and coq au vin. Food was great, service was personable and attentive. I also lunched there recently, and the Coquette burger (with brie and an egg on top) was fabulous! Service in the bar area at lunchtime was prompt. Coquette has a decent wine list, draft beer selection, and specialty cocktails. My friends enjoy the weekend brunch, but you have to come after noon on Sunday for the bottomless mimosas (NC liquor laws).

    We like coming here. Food quality is always reliable, good wine list and very reasonably priced. I'd usually like to have familiar faces wait on us since the new faces are not all there to offer specials. We enjoy the specials when there are available but usual menu items are also good default choices.

    I've been going to Coquette for years and every single dish I've tried has been delicious. The other remarkable thing is the food is always good and so is the service! I think it's rare for a lot of restaurants to maintain that type of quality over time and Coquette always delivers. In addition to the great food menu, the cocktail menu is also fantastic. The Canton Sidecar cocktail is by far my favorite cocktail in Raleigh.

    This is one of my favorite places because they are focused on the food. Everytime I eat there, each dish is an experience crafted for the person's taste buds. The service is amazing as well! I have ordered various fish dishes that have all been delivered timely, cooked properly and magnificently blended with all the other food on the plate. As I said, an experience.

    Coquette is one of my favorite brunch spots in Raleigh! However, this weekend the food was a big miss. The very attentive waitress picked up right away I was dis-pleased with the food, and promptly put in an order for another dish. The manager brought out the alternative, and apologized profusely. While the food was still no up to par, the service made up for it. The staff and manager were attentive, and tried their very best to make our experience wonderful. It was simply the cook's poorly made and put together food that was the downfall. I recommend Coquette if you want a fun, light, beautifully presented restaurant to go to, but don't rely on the food.

    Food is relatively expensive compared to the quality of what you get. As a european I think I know the difference between a real tasting of "fromage et charcuterie" and the 2 pieces of cheese and the (non) cured pieces of salame that this restaurant offer. The "house cocktail sauce" of the shrimp cocktail is simply horrible, and tastes like a cheap mexican restaurant salsa. This restaurant just pretends to be a "french" restaurant, but has nothing to do with that cuisine. At first I thought it was funny to see people eating a burgher in a restaurant like this, but after the dinner I realized that probably those people picked the only good thing in the menu.
