What Insiders Are Saying
Tapas galore on the Embarcadero. If you work in the Financial District, you probably want a reservation here.
Highly recommend the restaurant
This is a wonderful restaurant. You must be willing to share plates with your table, so it is best to go with one or two other couples. Everything was delicious and full of flavor. Highly recommended.
The food is always amazing here. My main concern was the 40 minute wait for a guaranteed 9:00 p.m. table. The bar was so crowded that we had to wait outside on a fairly cold night for a very long period of time.
Fantastic food and wonderful service - must experience this in San Francisco
Fantastic service! Robbie is the best. Food was delicious.
Pretty disappointed with the food we got at coquetta. This was our second time visiting the restaurant and we ordered a lot of similar items we did during our first visit. Most of the items were salty, lacked portion size and underwhelming. Example pork shoulder, patata brava, and churros. All of these items were utterly disappointing. We were celebrating anniversary. With this experience we doubt we would ever return at this place.
We were seated promptly upon arrival. The service was excellent. The food was also very good. All in all, a great dinner.
Maître D and male server rather rude
We dine at Coqueta pretty frequently, but our experience this time was different than usual. While service was excellent as always, the food was disappointing. It tasted like it was premade, sitting on the counter to be reheated. All dishes we ordered except for croquets and shrimp (octopus, mushrooms, cauliflower) were overly dry and almost inedible. And the amount you get for what you pay (3 shrimp for $18?) is not adequate. Even desserts (flan and leche cake) were disappointing. The leche cake did not taste fresh and flan had some frozen bits in it that diluted the flavor. I am not sure I will be coming back to pay premium prices for mediocre food.
Wide variety of tasty tapas. A bit weak on the vegan side, but that’s to be expected in a Spanish tapas restaurant. The table you get makes a BIG difference in your dining experience: some are great, others are noisy and you get bumped by everyone passing by.
My husband and I came here for a romantic dinner in the city. It was such a great choice. We ordered 4 tapas and 2 small desserts between us and each one was flavorful & unique. The service was impeccable - we never needed a water refill and we didn’t have to stare at our dirty plates for too long.
I had read that any seat in the restaurant offered views of the Bay Bridge. This was not the case for us. However, after dinner we stepped outside of the restaurant and were greeted with the beauty of the bridge at night and got some great pictures.
I would recommend this to anyone going to the city!
Friendly and flexible. Unique food.
Good food and good service, but the restaurant ignored a request I had on my Open Table reservation that I asked for re celebrating my friend's birthday on that day.
We were super excited to try Coqueta but were gravely disappointed with the food, especially the portion size. It was beyond ridiculous and almost laughable that they had portions that were meant to be larger tapas portions but in actuality it was not even close to a children’s portion sizing. The tapas should be advertised as a serving portion for one and NOT to be shared. Overall, we walked out unhappy and beyond hungry after spending $180...
We had a portion of Jamon iberico Bellota 29$, 5 very thin sliced served without bread. It’s ridiculous.
Excellent food, wine and service. We will return
Loved it! As always!
Food is ALWAYS beyond delicious! Our go to are the half charcuterie plate with meats and cheeses, the mini salmon bites, the gambás negras, pulpo and duck meatballs!!! Always a must! We tried the pork shoulder as well today and it was absolutely delicious . You can never go wrong with anything on their menu!
Fantastic food and atmosphere
Great restaurant. Incredible food. Expensive, but fun.
Manchego cheese cake is to die for
We loved about 75% of the dishes we ate. The delicata squash and the shrimp with egg and shoestring potatoes were not favored at all by our group, but just about everything else was delicious!
Went for Valentine’s Day. Food and service was great! We had Stephanie as our waitress and she was awesome. We didn’t know what to order and she helped us with ordering food we liked. The amount of food you got for your money is not worth it. I spent about $120 and was still hungry after we left. Would go back.
Great food, service, location, view, drinks, all good
Lovely atmosphere and very lovely that evening. There were more then a few tables celebrating birthdays that evening. At the end after we paid I was waiting for my to go that was boxed but she never brought it back to us. That was the only disappointing thing since I was ready to leave and snack on my meal I didn't get to finish.
Birthday with girlfriend
Food was excellent as usual but service was not as good as before.
I have been to the restaurant before and really liked it. Decided to go with my friends for my birthday celebration. I am less impressed this time. The food was still good but the service was no where near the level of my previous experience. The server missed my orders twice and didn’t offer much to make up.
I think it is overall not bad but I had high expectation and it was for birthday celebration.
Delicious. Wonderful experience.
The Jamon Iberico pork shoulder is one of the best meat dishes I have ever had. The rest of the tapas are solid.
We use Coqueta on a regular basis and are never disappointed. Great food and service
I like the food a lot! I wish the table is larger.
This an amazing, vibrant, and moderate Spanish style restaurant. Inside the restaurant is beautiful, with looking right out to the water. It is perfect for a date night, but I would definitely go to eat tapas and have a good cocktail! This place is not good for people who haven't eaten all day, and want to get a good hearty meal - More for good conversation, late bite, and (again) date night. The service was amazing & they even modified some items on the menu for vegan options.
The food was incredible! The food is unique and flavorful - I was highly impressed. The service was impeccable! I would highly recommend it, and cannot wait to go back.
Good food and excellent service (at lunch), but small portions and quite expensive for what you get. Also the seating is a bit cramped. Having been to Basque country, I would not say this is "authentic" basque food, but it's still pretty tasty - I can recommend it if you're not the one paying for it ;-)
We recently returned from a trip to Spain, and Coqueta took us right back there. All of the food was very good, albeit a little pricey. The cocktails were also very good, and the atmosphere was lively without being loud.
Service was outstanding and served authentic food from Spain. Will be back with my entire family.
Very disappointed in food yesterday everything was really too sweet. Usually one of my favorite places to go.
We had the most wonderful experience, with amazing food, drinks and service.
Came for lunch and enjoyed every dish. Friendly and knowledgeable staff that made me feel welcome. I loved sitting at the bar by the kitchen and saw more dishes I’d love to try on a return visit.
Always a fun place to have dinner with family or friends. Great food, great drinks, festive ambiance.
