Diner Reviews
  • "Coquette is always innovative and energetic, with the highest degree of taste and style. We went there for a celebration and the food and wine lived up to our expectations. Hard to beat in New Orleans."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "We tried the blind tasting menu and enjoyed the dishes served. It was a unique experience not knowing what was going to be served next."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Coquette is constantly finding new ways to please my palate. Their ability to get the most flavor out of proteins is unmatched by any restaurant that I've been."

  • "My boyfriend and I excitedly left Birmingham at 6:30 am to get to New Orleans in time for lunch at Coquette. We had read in multiple books and all over the internet about how great this restaurant was, so our hopes were high. However, when we walked up to the restaurant, I made the comment "it smells like a house fire out here," and that sentiment was continued throughout the meal. Everything we were served had been smoked in their backyard smoker, and therefore everything tasted like a house fire, or like it had been smoked with treated pine. We were so confused, and after rereading the great reviews, we decided it must have just been a mistake on their part, and we gave them the benefit of the doubt. However, we will not be going back."

  • "This review is primarily about the ambience - it didn't feel that special inside Coquette for the price and reputation. We ate there for our anniversary and I wish we had gone somewhere that felt more special. Coquette felt regular."
    Dined on 12/21/2013
  • "Hard to find the right words to describe how amazing this place is, food was truly divine. The friend chicken with the spicy watermelon sauce was out of this world. Can't wait to be back here on my next trip to New Orleans"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Gumbo was savory and different from the more traditional NOLA variations. Well worth a trip to the Garden District."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "New Orleans is noted for great food, but I find the downtown restaurants too noisy, crowded and over priced. Coquette breaks this pattern. A nice small neighborhood restaurants offering good food and wine. I had soft shell crabs, as good as any. Good wine list and priced well. I highly recommend Coquettes is you want to get out of the French Quarter."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Menu changes everyday but you can always count on innovative dishes that provide a nice surprise. Fabulous pairings of the freshest ingredients make for delicious dishes. Atmosphere is quiet during early dinners and lively but not overly noisy later. Servers were genuinely nice and knowledgeable and not bothersome. Def go if u get a chance."

  • "We love Coquette and come her often. The food is always on point as is the service. I recommend staying for dessert, as the pastry chef provides a large menu that is all well crafted."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "This was an absolutely amazing dining experience. The staff was friendly and attentive. The food was off the charts out-standing. It was probably the best brunch I have had in the city."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "My wife and I have frequented Coquette periodically since before we were married. The consistent high quality of the food has never waned even as it as clear that the menu changes constantly (every day, in fact). Our recent trip only reinforced our high regard for this restaurant."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "I dine rather frequently at Coquette and this experience did not disappoint either. The food was excellent as usual and I look forward to my next visit."
    Dined on 5/12/2014
  • "excellent fresh food, nice presentation, relaxed atmosphere, kind of a strange menu setup with not a lot of choices but really fine food prepared with local ingredients"
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "Started out with an "old fashioned" made with e h taylor. Bread and butter was excellent as always, came out nice and hot. Soup was on the cusp of being too salty, but the potato salad was so good, I asked for a little bit more. I got a huge bowlful of it for a $5 surcharge, not bad. Got shrimp and grits, with bacon, okra, and cherry tomatoes. Broth in that was amazing. Got a chocolate pot de creme with a mint chantilly on top. The chanitlly was a bit too "toothpaste-y" on it's own, but paired well with the pot de creme. Server was great. She explained some of their barreling program for us."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "this is my go to restaurant when I want consistently good, creative food. I take all my out of town guests and clients here. The squash blossom beignets were amazing."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "I live approximately 350 miles from New Orleans - I make it a point to eat at Coquette if possible. The food and service are outstanding!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We have been to Coquette several times for either drinks, dinner or brunch and every time it has been great. The food is top notch and the service to match. The menu changes pretty much daily and has good variety for all. Nice atmosphere, maybe even a bit fancy, but not at all pretentious. A dangerous place to have in the neighborhood!!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "I really enjoyed eating here with my wife for our 10th anniversary. The ravioli was ok. But everything else was to die for. I really wish I had saved room for desert."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Dining at Coquette is an experience! Inspired and ambitious preparation. The smoked meats are divine but heavy if you want a light dinner. Delicious food. Will return on our next visit to NOLA. Have had lunch at the bar at a prior visit and loved that also."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Menu changes daily and they do amazing things with the simplest of ingredients. Very elegant yet modern, classic, and eclectic."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "I live in the Irish Channel. When people ask me whether I eat at Commander's Palace often, I tell them "no. there's a better restaurant between me and it." I mean Coquette. This place is terrific, and consistently so. Creative without being wierd. Go. You won't be disappointed."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "We had heard wonderful things about Coquette and were excited about a family dinner there. Our party was seated upstairs at a very long narrow table. The noise level before we started did not allow us to converse with people across from us. The food did not come out correctly and was spread out. We did not get water or bread refilled even after asking. Some said our their food was good others not so. We were embarrassed to have chosen this for our out of town quests. They also neglected to return one credit card and took over ten minutes to find it."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "We saw the restaurant was listed in Food and Wine magazine and were interested to try it out. It's located in the Garden District so it's away from the bustle of the French Quarter. Lovely building and great charm. The menu changes daily and we were very happy with our dishes. Also had a nice French Cabernet Franc that paired very well with the duck. Service was a tad slow but this isn't a place to rush dinner anyway. The staff was very nice and we had a lovely experience. Definitely going back!"
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "We had reservations but were seated an hour after our reserved time. We were on vacation without kids so it didn't really bother us that night but would have another time. It did get so late that we ended up only having an appetizer and then headed back to our hotel b/c of an early morning flight. BUT - great scene, fun bar, cool neighborhood!"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Our experience was horrible on June 6, 2014. We waited half an hour at our table with no server in sight. We grabbed a bus boy and asked him to get us something to drink. When Jacob, the manager, eventually showed up he seemed annoyed, stressed and aggravated and distracted. Our meals arrived cold and we were never asked how our food was. We will NEVER go back and have told our 40 New Orleans friends at a private dinner party at Commander's Palace Saturday night, June 7, never to go to Coquette either. The manager seemed more nervous and distracted than caring about our returning business. We are in New Orleans often and have many friends there. We shall spread the word."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "This one hit the mark. My wife and I had the chef's tasting menu, and we were quite happy we did. Really, every course was amazing...taste, presentation, everything. My wife and I have vegan and vegetarian friends, who I think would have been very happy with this restaurant, too. We would come back in a heartbeat."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Service was terrible. Had a long hair in my food. Fish was so old, when they cooked it and put it on the plate, it released some fishy tasting juice. 15$ for a small plate of vegetables, which didn't even taste crisp or fresh (scam). I could go on more about this place. But it really was an awful experience and I hope it doesn't happen to others."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "What a wonderful find! This is very easy to get to by streetcar or bus. The service along with the decor had a warm friendliness about it. The food was excellent, even by the high standards of New Orleans. We mentioned to the server that we were debating between the duck and the soft-shelled crab and would like to share the two plates, which we often do. When the meals arrived, they were very nicely divided into two servings without sacrificing the well designed and attractive plating. Both dishes along with the small plates were done perfectly. If we lived in NOLA, we'd be "regulars" here. "
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "I'm not the biggest lover of fish, but I took the bartender's suggestion on the halibut! With out a doubt, the best halibut I've ever had! I didn't think capers, plums and brown butter sauce with a tomato 'hash' could possibly work, but clearly I'm not the innovative chef that Michael is! I was in town to take my son to orientation and I'm already planning on going back in August to see what other new seasonal items will be on the menu! You won't regret going to this restaurant! Great service, beautiful ambience and amazing food with a delicious glass of wine!!"

  • "Went here for a nice dinner out with my girlfriend. We eat out very frequently, and are accustomed to good meals and service- however coquette was above and beyond my expectations. We ordered the chef's tasting and a bottle of 'The Prisoner' Napa red blend. Was impressed start to finish. The five course meal was excellent- courses 3/4 of halibut and duck tenderloin were perfectly cooked, loved the cucumber/squash vinaigrette salad... It was incredibly obvious how fresh the ingredients were, the meal was above all else fresh, complex, and thankfully not bogged down with butter/rich sauces like too many other nola restaurants. Cocktails were a little pricey, but other than that, phenomenal meal all the way around, would eat here again. "

  • "We come here often and find it consistently great. Sunday's brunch favorites: oysters Benedict, ham sandwich, hamburger (with hooks cheese). One suggestion: Order your first drink as soon as you sit down...they are slow in the drink-making category. "

  • "Nice to come back to New Orleans and have more options that spicy sauces, good though they may be. coulis excellent. nice atmosphere"
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "I've always had excellent food and service at Coquette. I was expecting nothing less this time around. The 3-course lunch is a steal. Initial service was good, bread and butter is always amazing. For an appetizer, I got a seasonal salad that had radishes, squash, and cheese, which doesn't sound like much, but was pretty amazing. I got fried catfish as an entree. It was cooked perfectly and came with a Sriracha-like hot sauce and mint. Unusual, but delicious combo. The time between entree and dessert was seemingly long. Waiter brought out more bread in between, which was weird. I got funnel cake and ice cream, but funnel cake was cold. The check took awhile as well. Besides some minor things, lunch was great. "

  • "This was my first visit and definitely not my last. Great atmosphere and space plus interesting and inventive menu. The smoked catfish is a must-have if it is on the menu. The drinks were also excellent. Can't wait to return on my next visit to NOLA. "

  • "Went for brunch. Sat outside and could smell a wood grill in the vicinity. Lo and behold it was the chef at Coquette smoking a whole pig. As a result I had the hame sandwich that was outstanding. My wife had the vegetable plate which was also outstanding. Great restaurant."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Had a team of servers who were as inept as possible. Ordering was rushed and our courses arrived on top of each other. The servers served every course to the wrong person and never followed up to see how things were. . We ordered two bottles of wine with dinner, and had to refill our own glasses even walking to retrieve the white wine from its cooler. Worse came when they failed to refill our champagne glasses during dessert,, even taking away some of our guests glasses. Guess our wait staff wanted the rest of the bottle for themselves. Again we had to get up to retrieve the remainder of our bottle and grab our own glasses to enjoy what we paid for. And our waiters could care less since they got an automatic 20% tip on our party of six."
