Coquette Lunch Dining Week 2013The server was fantastic. The food was spectacular. The Coquette manages to maintain superior quality in every way during one of the busiest weeks of the year.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Coq au Vin!My husband and I went here for the first time during Milwaukee's Downtown Dining Week. We were both impressed by the food - a salad, Coq au Vin, and chocolate mousse for just $20 each. As a Coq au Vin newby, I think I may have found my favorite French dish. It came with two big pieces of moist chicken, smothered in a red wine sauce, and adorned with mushrooms and thick bacon pieces. It laid on a bed of tasty mashed potatoes. Delicious comfort food. The chocolate mousse wasn't half bad either! All and all, it was a good date place, and we'd definitely go back.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMToo many kidsWhy do people bring their kids, especially very young kids, to a restaurant of this caliber? It ruins the ambiance for e erroneous else? Other than that and little slow service, everything was excellent.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMA Truly Great ExperienceFour of us had dinner there on 6/8/13. each one of us loved our dinner and left with four clean plates. We had pork, a salad, ravioli, and a egg plant casserole. I had key lime pie for dessert and again it was great and creative with a light carmel sauce drizzled over the plate.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMduring downtown dining weekduring downtown dining week they were very busy and not up to the usual perfect service. even croquet monsieur was burnt,6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary dinnerMy husband and I chose Coquette for an anniversary dinner with two of our three kids. We were able to enjoy excellent food while our kids found something they enjoyed on the menu as well. Our server was terrific -- she knew the menu well and made great recommendations. This restaurant is great for adults, but good for families too.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was everything we wantedThis was everything we wanted in a French restaurant. Our waitress was able to make some fabulous recommendations for dinner and the desserts we sampled were amazing!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time a charmFood was wonderful. We had never been there and it was very good. The cauliflower soup was outstanding . My fish was crispy on the edges and moist inside.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMCoquette - excellente cuisineDining at Coquette Cafe in Milwaukee's Historic Third Ward was a delightful, fine-dining experience without the typical accompanying exorbitant bill. As one would expect in a French style restaurant, the French Onion Soup with gruyere cheese was excellent, however a cauliflower based soup, which was a special of the evening, was incredible. The entrees we ordered, Casserole of Sautéed Eggplant and a daily special of tilapia served with saffron and sugar snap were perfectly prepared. Leave room for the Crème Brulée as it was among the best I have ever enjoyed. Service was well timed and the server was very cordial.
Overall, a fantastic dinner and I look forward to returning to Coquette soon.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful unassuming French bistrobuilding even feels like Paris, food was deliciously french but with local foodie influences, read reviews on open table and they were spot on. just a delightful evening5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurantDelicious food in a great atmosphere!

It has a very French, New York bistro ambience. Lately my cravings are for the outstanding Cuban sandwich, the meatloaf, and the superb French onion soup.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Vegan Meal ever!I took several family members here for brunch on Mother's Day. I called ahead and requested a Vegan lunch item. The chef made me a wonderful entree. We enjoyed our lunch and the service was outstanding. We will definitely come back for another visit.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed Sunday Brunch!I had brunch here with my mom on Mother's Day. We had omelets and profiteroles for dessert. Excellent! Service was on point. I can't wait to dine here again.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food & serviceWe had Mother's Day lunch at Coquette Cafe this year. They were EXTREMELY accommodating, even to the point of possibly adding 3 more to our party at last minute, even though it didn't need to be. Called 15 min before reservation to let them know we would be 15 late because Church ended late :) We were greeted promptly. Within 5 min of sitting down our beverage order was taken. Food arrived promptly. The quality of the food was impeccable. I had chicken pesto sandwich with phenomenal French fries, something I rarely eat! Everyone loved their food. The waitress was very attentive & personable. When asked if she added gratuity she said she forgot. Asked what percentage was, indicated 18%. I told her we gave her 21%. That says it all!!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGREAT eveningFood was exquisite, good service, and great ambiance. Hands-down, one of the greatest places I have been in a while, and will be back as soon as I can!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMTravel to Vietnam MenuI loved their shrimp bisque soup and their Cubano sandwich. The key lime pie had just the right amount of tartness. The service was friendly and the courses were well paced. I would definitely eat their again.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent as alwaysEverything was great. Been here many times and never leave disappointed. Love that duck confit!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great Dinner out in Milwaukee!My husband and I enjoyed a lovely dinner at Coquette Cafe this past weekend. The menu had a nice variety and the prices were very affordable for the high quality food and service. We appreciated how the restaurant was divided into separate eating areas. This helped with a quieter space compared to other restaurants. Our waitress was professional, helpful and friendly. I highly recommend Coquette Cafe for a special celebration or for an evening out with a friend/spouse.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice menu - our groupVery nice menu - our group mostly had lighter fare (sandwiches, salad, pizza). We'll come back soon to try the entrees. Soup du jour (pumpkin - curry) was great.
Service was very attentive.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMCoquette is reliably good.Coquette is reliably good. We brought an out-of-town guest and the experience didn't disappoint.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMNotes to the chefI thought the Ravioli dish I ordered was very dry but my husband ordered the eggplant casserole and that was very good. One of the special desserts that night I was anxious to try out was the mango ginger sorbet. However, I found it to be almost tasteless. I couldn't taste either the mango or the ginger in it.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently good cuisineConsistently good cuisine even if it is a little noisy.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this restaurant!

On this visit I had the trout and it was both fabulous and complemented with very tasty accouterments. My dining companion had the grilled hanger steak, done to perfection and one of their most popular entrees. The service was extraordinary. Our server, Zoe, was especially helpful in helping us decide on our entrees and made the evening extra special. As a side-note, two friends showed up at the restaurant as we were about half-way through our main course and the staff sat them with us, served their meal apace and made the entire experience seamless. Very professional.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the feel of this place.Love the feel of this place. Met a friend for brunch and was impressed with the variety of menu items. Interestingly, neither of us ended up ordering breakfast items, but my roasted veggie sandwich was very tasty and friend's hamburger was amazing. Terrific spot to enjoy a lazy Sunday. One of the best things is a parking lot in the rear that is available after 5pm and on weekends.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI love this place, Great FoodI love this place and have been here many times with clients and family.

Her pork and my trout had interesting twists to classic preparations (the pork had a shredded pickle garnish and was served over spaetzle). The spinach salad had an excellent vinaigrette. Service was attentive and well-paced.

Noise was not an issue, and the food was excellent. We'd all go back in a heartbeat.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food exceeded my expectations.The food exceeded my expectations. As a starter, we ordered mussels which were just right. They tasted perfectly fresh, in a broth that was not too garlicky. My main course was the hanger steak with french fries. I have tried a lot of french fries in my life, these were tops, crisp but not too hard outside, fresh potato taste inside, not too salty. The steak was dabbed in a mushroom-red wine reduction that was so good, rich in wine taste, that I soaked up the last drop with my bread. The meat melted in your mouth.
Three other observations: The light at the tables could be better. I like to see what I eat. The wine menu needs some work - more selections, some descriptions for those who don't know the labels well.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMMy friend and I went to theMy friend and I went to the Coquette Cafe because of the delicious sample of Mushroom soup I had at the Home Show. We were lucky enough to go on a day when the Mushroom soup was the soup du jour. It was once again delicious! We enjoyed the wonderful service and the atmosphere was conducive to a conversation.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect for a before-concertPerfect for a before-concert or before-play dinner. Portions are correct, wine was excellent, food was tasty. Excellent choices--everything from sandwiches to full dinners. Conversation was possible! (Not too loud.)

Customer's had the short ribs and onion soup and were very happy.
Another had one of the flat pizssa and equally happy.
I always have the travelers. The sauce on the salmon was delicious, but overpowered the salmon, I thought. I wanted to drink the sauce the mussles were in, but thought that was tacky. Used the fries to get as much sauce as I thought was polite.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was the most unique,The food was the most unique, delicious, and well preseneted we have seen anywhere in the US.
