  • "We had the extreme plaesure of dining at Coquette upon my son and his girlfriend's recommendation. My husband and I are in our late 50s early 60s and live in the Washington DC Metropoltan area. We've traveled extensively and have always searched for recommended reataurants. Your restaurant if not the best, comes very close to being that, among all the restaurants at which we've ever eaten. The food was superb!!! The service impeccable! We look forward to dining at your establishment again! Compliments to the chef!!! Carmen Boston"

  • "Delighted to find enough gluten free fare for 2 five course blind tasting dinners. We got 2nd floor window seating as well. Some portions bite-size but collectively satisfying. With the wine pairing we floated home! Menu changes daily but everything fresh and local."

  • "On Magazine in the Garden District, Coquette is a true gem. We went for anniversary dinner and loved it. Food was outstanding. My wife was worried because the menu is definitely creative and offers some interesting, unusual choices, but she bsolutely loved her skirt steak entree and my duck was probably the best I have ever had (and I order duck regularly). And the peach dessert was truly unique and superb. Upstairs, where we were, is spacious and more quiet. Downstairs with bar has an old- time feel. Service was good, and our waitress gave an excellent explanation of the desserts when we inquired. There is some hipster vibe though going on with the wait staff. Would definitely go back and highly recommend."

  • "We did the five course tasting menu with the wine pairing. Each dish was delicious and beautifully prepared. My two favorites were The lightly tempura fried shrimp with fresh horseradish and the chicken, watermelon and mixed green salad. Each bite was like a taste explosion. I cannot wait till I can return to this restaurant and try some of the other fabulous dishes that I saw there. The staff was very friendly and courteous. They made immediate accommodations for gas with physical limitation. This restaurant definitely outshine some of the more famous New Orleans restaurants."

  • "Once again had a great experience. The 3 course brunch menu was a fantastic value. All of the other food was very tasty. Server was a little obnoxious but the food runners and back waiters made up for it. Helped make for a happy sunday."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "Food was really good, we had an appetizer to split and then each had an entree. But there really aren't a lot of options to choose from. If you have a picky eater with you, this is probably not the best place - but we really enjoyed the food and atmosphere!"

  • "This is such a charming little place, with amazing food. Love the art on those cool brick walls too! We come here every time we are in New Orleans for a special meal. We are never disappointed."

  • "We decided to have the tasting menu for our first experience at Coquette. It was a great way to get to know the menu and have a fun fortieth birthday for my boyfriend. He had the wine pairing,which he enjoyed and I had some cava which worked well but kicked it off with a caipirinha cocktail .. Super yum. To sum up ... it was a solid dinner and we would return again! PS the palate cleanser has a secret surprise!;)"

  • "After reviewing our bill, we noticed that we were charged 12% sales tax as opposed to 9%. When we questioned this we were told by the manager that it was for an arts tax for the city of New Orleans. We dine out quite a bit, and have never heard of this, and we have since questioned others who have never heard of this as well. I plan on doing some more investigating and hope that this is not a scam that is used by the restaurant on their customers."

  • "The food was good, but the service was unacceptable. I will never go back to this restaurant nor will I ever recommend it. I don't think my house guest nor myself had a waiter (we were sitting at the bar). Run the other way if someone wants to go"

  • "Jacob was amazing. Great food and service. We ordered the chefs blind menu and the selections were best of class."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "The tasting (says 5 courses but is actually 8) is the thing to order here; it's extraordinary and worth the $70 price per person. Even the bread is superb, comparable to the best we had recently in rural France. We liked it so much that we went the next night, with another couple, for the tasting again. The chef accommodated us with no overlaps in dishes except our favorite - the fried chicken with watermelon - and the table service was very pleasantly attentive."

  • "Coquette continues to be a fine lunch place. A little pricey for me, so I only go on an occasion. Never disappointed. Food is excellent, and service is, if anything, better. I'll be back."

  • "Coquette never disappoints me and in fact always surprises me with fresh ingredients presented in creative and delicious ways. Keep it up and don't miss this place"
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "Chef Michael Stoltzfus continues to amaze us with his delectible inventive lunch selections. The shared fried shrimp appetizer (only three shrimp but enough for two to share for a taste!) was unlike any fried shrimp we've had anywhere in Louisiana. So tender and moist with a wonderful batter. And who would have thought that fried pork meatloaf would be to die for?! My flank steak sandwich (without the bread--no problem) was also excellent. We continue to love Coquette for amazing lazy lunches and with a bottle of wine, of course."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "I had heard great things, but was disappointed with each of the three dishes we had. Bland fried chicken app--shouldn't the focus of the dish be the best part? Dates and cheese--the cheese wasn't enough to balance the overly sweet dates. Mushroom pasta--overall mediocre. We decided to cut our losses and get dessert elsewhere. Will not return."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "I have been here before for lunch and was very impressed. There were four of us for dinner. Each couple shared a small plate and each diner ordered a large plate. Had we not eaten two orders of bread, we would have left hungry. The food was very good. The service was better than excellent. It was loud but you were able to carry on a conversation."

  • "We love this restaurant and often drive from Baton Rouge to eat here. Our favorite is to order the "Chef's Surprise" with the wine pairings. A wonderful five course "surprise" meal comes to your table with some of the best food you will ever eat. Nice not to have to quibble over what you're going to order as well."

  • "Love to have tastes and easy to share from this menu. Dining outside was fun after rain storm for full sense of summer and feel of neighborhood. Two nights later, interior was reflect for energy of room and quick dining made to work for early morning work schedule Great fried chicken."

  • "2nd time here and food was just as wonderful as the first. We did a tasting menu at the bar and although the bartender didn't pair wine with our food correctly, he filled each glass full so it was hard to complain. With that said, I do have one complaint with the hostess. We were about to be seated at a tiny 2 top table. We asked very nicely if we could be seated at a four top. She said, no, because the other 4 empty tables were for other reservations. So we opted to sit at the bar. An hour into our donner we noticed 3 of the 4 tables were still empty. Not a big deal, I just wish they would be a little more accommodating. I hate small tables and its definitely a deciding factor when we chose where we want to dine that night."

  • "Always enjoy Coquette. We celebrated my wife's birthday here as it is one of her favorite places. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. Music was great and the food is always fresh and interesting. I had fried catfish, which was very good, and my wife and daughter had the shrimp and grits with tasso gravy. It was excellent. Everything we had was good. The dessert they brought for my wife's birthday was also excellent and a little lagniappe was the champagne they served with it."

  • "I have eaten eaten at some of the highest rated restaurants in the world and the best was found here. We did the 5 course meal (which was really 7). Locally sourced food with a nod to the region in preparation. Inspired wine pairings. Before dinner I ordered a Tom Collins which was perfectly prepared and had a unique spin which was delightful. Fine dining at its best. Not 'stuffy' at all- very welcoming. Knowledgeable service staff; I was impressed that they asked about food allergies and preferences since the meal can be customized to your liking. Seated in great room upstairs with wonderful lighting and acoustics. I took my husband there for BD dinner- I hit a home run in choosing Coquette: we will remember it for the rest of our lives."

  • "Coquette has amazing food. It's a bit pricey so my husband and I have only been twice but it is definitely worth it. The appetizers and small plates are very small, about tasting portion sized, but they offer fantastic gourmet flavors I haven't experienced elsewhere. The small sizes of the food doesn't really bother me especially when I think about how much I would be gorging myself if I had the opportunity. The staff is knowledgable and serves in a timely manner. I was first drawn to coquette by the unique architecture of the building and the overall cute look the place had going for it. Overall, I don't see how anyone couldn't like this restaurant."
