Diner Reviews
  • "We had a nice dinner there, but it wasn't spectacular. Food arrived warm and kind of congealed looking. Quite expensive."

  • "Coquine is indeed a neighbourhood gem - the food is always great."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Had the seafood phyllo pastry with scallop substitute.....absolutely amazing!!! Ordered a few appetizers and really enjoyed them as well. Hard to find a good French restaurant in the city so we're definitely coming back!"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "Parking was a bit of an issue and the main area was noisy as there was a private party going on. But they sat us in the back dining room and you couldn't hardly hear the group at all. The food was delicious! Not pretentious and just the right portions."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "Easy-going patio, top-notch service from Maria, delicious starters of moules & frites and fritto misto, perfect entree of pork chop, 2 pitchers of sangria. Could not have been a better place to celebrate our friend's birthday. Will be back regularly."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Great food, wonderful staff, lively, great atmosphere."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "We went to Coquine because we had read all kinds of great reviews. This was NOT the experience we had. We sensed that things wouldn't go smoothly. The service was slow as molasses, dinner took us over two and a half hours before we received our main courses. I ordered the casoulet, which was over reduced, barely had any beans in it, and was more of a meat pot than anything else. So salty I couldn't finish it. The white bean spread is highly touted, but ours had no discernible flavour at all! We actually had to ask what it was!! Not worth your time, and certainly not worth your money. Too bad, because they do play great live jazz and have a lovely patio, but that's not enough to make me ever go back and give it a second chance..."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Lovely ambiance, inside an out. Excellent salad on the patio, and most pleasant and onscientious servers!"
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Great food...very comforting and delicious. Great service and ambiance. Great restaurant for dining with other half, with one friend, with many friends and friends with kids. Not too noisy but lively atmosphere. I always enjoy coming here, whether it be brunch, lunch or dinner!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Having wanting to try French food for the longest time, I was very pleased to have stumbled on Conquine. The food was excellently prepared and well portioned. The wine list was varied and suitable for most palettes, the only complaint I had was that several items were not available on the menu (though it may have to do with the fact we went on Father's day). If you are looking for lovely environment, without the pretentious atmosphere of typical French fare then Conquine is the spot for you."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We were a party of 5. Seating quickly and service was excellent from start to finish. The food was great . The room is loud and very energetic."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "That place was very good, food was excellent for me and my wife, since we got early there was sun right in front of our table ... no big deal really ... Wine was also good and the food was really well prepared ..... The only problem was a singer that was singing bad and outloud .... everything gets better when she went to a break. Owner ... please avoid that ... romantic music would be just fine "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Great food. Great Service Tables are very close to each other. "
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "This place served up amazing French food at fair prices. Our only complaint was that they never brought us enough bread (we were a big group and kept running out). Also, the furniture and decor seems a bit dated, but doesn't get in the way of a great experience. "
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "The best french onion soup, beet gnocchi and red wine. Phenomenal service with a smile. "
    Dined on 4/29/2014
  • "I have been less than enthusiastic than others with the quality of French bistro food in Toronto, of which the world as a whole is a little oversupplied, but this place made me change my negative opinion, they do the classics very well, the steak-frites, escargots, gnocchi, duck confit, foie gras terrine, etc., and the fries are perfect-- as we know, the mark of a good French bistro. Service is formidably good as we had a waiter who was voted one of the best in the city, his name is Peter, please ask for him if you go. I have to concur with whoever voted him one of the best waiters in Toronto. I wish that my bank account had disagreed when it came time for the tip! ;-)"
    Dined on 4/27/2014
  • "Go. It's a good place for a night out. Salads were yummy. Mussels fair. Service great. We have been before and would go back again. Prices a bit high. I don't have anything else to say but opentable insists on 50 words. "
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "Great experience overall however Eggs Benedict with crab and avocado was served cold. Very disappointing compared to awesome wine and great service. "
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "Excellent food. A little pricey and noisy to my liking."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "The service was laid back. It's not quantity it's quality. Dishes lacked flavour. The lamb had no taste to it. Best part of meals was the fried brussels sprouts. My girlfriend had the lamb and I had the pork belly. We ordered the duck sausage but it did not show up. The waiter kept trying to fill our glasses with water even though we told him numerous times that we do not drink Toronto tap water. This place is more like a bar with decent food...not the French restaurant we were expecting."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Great French cuisine without having to travel! Great ambience."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Have eaten here several times now for both brunch and dinner. Food has been consistently good and the service is always friendly without being intrusive. Will definitely be dining at Coquine again soon."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "Loved the tomato pesto on the bass and it was cooked perfectly. We said we were splitting a salad and they plated it individually which was a nice touch."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Coquine has been thiving on Yonge St for many years with good reason - great food and friendly service. We continue to explore different dishes with each visit. Seafood is fresh and well prepared. Beef, lamb and duck all presented with full flavours and great accompaniments."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Coquine was very good, excellent bistro food and attentive but not overbearing service. One member of our party has celiac disease and the waiter was very helpful in suggesting gluten-free options and the kitchen was careful in preparation. A very pleasant dining experience."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "The venue is full come 7pm on a Frida but luckily we had an early reservation. Good service. Exceptional food. Duck Confit was superb. Will return."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "A true go to restaurant for us after celebrating a significant birthday of my wife's a couple of years ago, Coquine once again did not dissappoint. From the perfectly mixed pre dinner gin martini and bourbon sour at the bar to the comfortable and attentive service of our server, we were left smiling from ear to ear. The food was delecious and abundant (almost too much!) and the vibe of the evening made for a perfect respite for my wife and my busy busy lives. Knowing it's the return guests that keep a restaurant thriving seems to seperate this uptown restaurant from its peers. Hip without pretension, a mixed crowd making us feel not too young or too old, we can't wait to come back. Cheers for doing it so right."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "There's such a lively ambience in this wood panelled, wonderfully decorated place, it feels great just to be there. The steak frites is absolutely fantastic, I have to say I've had it both times I was there. My companions have had the salmon (best she's ever had) and pork chops (also really good). Escargot and bruschetta also very tasty and a nice selection of lovely wines. I would have given 5 starts for the food but the ceasar salad needs improvement. We'll definitely be back!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Great unpretenious local spot with fabulous food and great friendly staff! Very helpful with wine pairings to the food as well. Duck two ways was great."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "I ordered a decaf cappuccino after my meal, and after I drank off the foam, I found I had less than 1/2 a cup of coffee in the small cup. I did mention this to our server, and while he gave me a bit of a hard time about it (he claimed this is how they prepared their coffee), he did make some more for me for no additional charge. It also took a while to get our bill at the end."
    Dined on 2/6/2014
  • "The host genuinely welcomes me (as he multitasks on a busy Friday eve) and seats me at a very cozy table (as requested in the reservation). Mood - 'boisterous'. Decor - casual/rustic decor, mainly of dark, polished wood. Menu - classic bistro fare. Food - superb (full flavors and pleasing presentation)! Octopus terrine - perfect texture. Cassoulet - deep, rich & smokey. Short but tailored selection of wines by the glass. Service was attentive (pleasant, engaging, knew the menu (food & drinks), but slightly distracted (the venue was full). Negligible disappointment with no separate bills (as requested in reservation) and by 7pm - the noise-level becomes… uncomfortably loud (try and go early). Already made my reservation to return."
    Dined on 1/10/2014
  • "I went there with a friend for dinner. Nice restaurant. I ordered the ravioli. It was good and I really liked it but I thought the size of the portion was a little small for dinner as I still felt a little hungry after I was done. But other than that, both my friend and I liked our dishes and the atmosphere of the restaurant was nice with groups, friends and dates. Overall, I would recommend this restaurant."
    Dined on 1/3/2014
  • "We have been to Coquine a couple of times now and the Food is always Rich and Flavourful and beautifully presented (we enjoyed the Award Winning Poutine, Saumon Grilléé and the Crevettes et Coquilles) The ambience is the perfect blend of laid back and chic and the attention to your comfort and experience is the best in Toronto. We always feel at home at Coquine for dinner or even just a drink. I would highly recommend Coquine for French cuisine and fun in a non-pretentious atmosphere."
    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "Went on a weekday for lunch, was notified on the spot that they were not serving the lunch menu. Forced to order from the brunch menu. Had I wanted brunch, I would have gone on a Sunday. I went on a weekday because I wanted the lunch menu. Food was decent, just not what I had wanted. The female server looked like she absolutely hated to be working there. RUDE, COLD, ABRUPT. Racial discrimination as I am an Asian? Maybe. As I did see her smiling and being less anti-social to Caucasian customers. NOT the way to be a server at a restaurant if you have this attitude... especially if you also happen to be standing at the entrance as a greeter as well. NOT a restaurant I would recommend to fellow diners, unless attitude is your thing."
    Dined on 12/26/2013
  • "Even on a quiet night, Coquine exudes a certain aura that makes you feel you're in a special place. There's an energy that heightens the experience. Food leans to the simple side but is delicious and the service is perfectly paced and you don't feel as though certain things are pushed like in some places. We always leave satisfied after a good meal that doesn't break the bank..."
    Dined on 11/13/2013
  • "The cuisine is exceptional and the service is superb. We had a terrific time with good friends. We are going back."
    Dined on 10/12/2013
  • "First of all I have to tell you that when I went to the restaurant at the reserved time, fortunately before the rest of my party, i found out there was no reservation made under my name even though I booked this with open table a week ago. So as you can imagine my shock, i could not understand how this would happen. However the host at the entrance was quite pleasant and gave my a nice table for 8 people at the back room which was very pretty and perfect for a birthday celebration. I also must mention the lamb shank I had was superb in every way, taste, flavour, presentation. The service was quite good, and accommodated 8 of us quite nicely even though for some reason we weren't on their list when I arrived."
