Wonderful dinner with great food and drinks. A very nice paced meal, didn’t feel rushed at all. The red snapper was amazing, and the chicken liver mousse appetizer was very good. I also did the gin flight which was fun and had some very interesting and tasty gin I had never tried. I highly recommend!

The food was excellent and our server, Beth, was the best. She was friendly and knowledgeable. The only downside to the experience was we were seated almost 25 min after our reservation time. Another table of 3 came in after us and were seated immediately.

We had a fabulous experience at Coquette. We did the five course tasting menu that included a snack to begin and palate cleanser. The courses were delicious. The additions were also delicious and larger than expected. We opted for a bottle of wine instead of the wine pairing. The server helped us select a great bottle that complimented the food courses. Our server and the sommelier provided exemplary service. The sommelier went above and beyond by providing suggestions and contacts for a trip to Loire valley. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience on our first trip to NOLA. Hope to return to Coquette in the not too distant future!

Excellent experience. Did the blind tasting menu. Started with a cheese loaf. First course was asparagus with capers; excellent. Second course was a Kimchi rice that we didn't like and they exchanged it for shrimp in a horseradish gremolata that was exceptional; the gremolata was well balanced and did not overpower the seafood. Perfectly cooked and flavorful snapper followed by a wonderfully tender veal in a foie gras butter sauce. Dessert was good with chocolate pudding and banana ice cream. Great service - very attentive- and wine pairing was well done and creative in a charming venue.

Exquisite! I think my husband and I used that word repeatedly during our tasting dinner. Every course was exceptional. (We are food snobs from NYC). Incredible snapper and veal. Great service from everyone. Nice setting. Perfect wine. Absolutely the highlight of trip (which included Bywater Bistro and others).

Very unusual and quite delightful food combinations. Plates looked on the modest side but food were satisfying, so four of us were very well fed on two small and three large plates shared between us all. Excellent wine list.

We were staying in the neighbourhood and visited coquette for convenience as much as anything; we were very please we did. The meals were excellent, the service attentive but not obtrusive and excellent value for money. I can recommend moment the brisket spare rib but it’s the kind of place where you can be confident that any dish will be fine.

Perhaps the 40 person party affected everything during our visit, but we found the evening mediocre at best. The first courses were not great, although the second course was fine except for the 75 minute wait between. The noise level was quite high so we could not talk during our long wait between courses.

Cute little place with a good mission of using all of the animal and local seasonal foods with some vegan choices. It has a beautiful bar and creative cocktails. Service was friendly and attentive with a neighborhood feel. Through Open Table we had a choice of 6:00 or 8:30 so we chose 6:00. The restaurant was not even half full when we got there, when we left and when we walked by at 8:00, there were several open tables. If you really want to eat at a more convenient time, I would suggest calling the restaurant.

Coquette just keeps getting better and better. The Louisiana Rice app manages to bring together what seems as you taste it the whole Louisiana culinary palette. The Kim Chi collards are a revelation. Always evolving, which can't be said of some of our other great restaurants, Coquette never fails to surprise.

Wonderful neighborhood restaurant which has never disappointed us! The smoked catfish dip is divine and the buttermilk fried chicken platter at Saturday and Sunday brunch is more than two people can eat! It comes with deviled eggs, broccoli salad, thick homemade pickles and mouthwatering biscuits! I couldn’t eat anything the rest of the day! AND—the Bloody Mary had a wonderful smoky flavor making it one of the best I’ve ever had!

Any way you measure a restaurant, Coquette is outstanding! The food was creative and delicious and beautifully presented. The service was attentive and friendly. The venue is beautiful and romantic. We spent a long weekend in NOLA on vacation from San Francisco and ate at just about every restaurant on everyone’s top ten list— and they were all good. A few were truly great— Coquette was the best of them all— our favorite. So glad we had this lovely experience.

Loved the chicken liver mousse, very tasty! My husband had the delicious braised short rib and I had an asparagus dish. The only negative about the food...some of the asparagus was a little tough, otherwise it was very yummy and we will go back if ever in NO!

we did the 5 course blind tasting menu and it was fantastic! We had one person with us who is a little bit picky and for each course that she did not enjoy, they brought out something extra for the table to share! It was my favorite meal while in New Orleans and we ate at some really great places!!!

Overall Coquette mostly lived up to the hype. My friends informed me the fried chicken was fantastic, and I believe this is probably the only reason worth going. The pimento cheese and Bloody Mary were standout. However, the egg scramble with Burrata is probably one of the worst dishes ever. It just didn’t make sense. The idea was good, the execution not.
The service staff was exceptional , but we had a hiccup with the manager when we arrived that honestly seemed pointless. My friends and I did separate reservations to have brunch here, when this was mentioned, the hostesses put us in two adjacent tables. We didn’t ask for this but they offered. The manager came over and said that by policy they don’t split out big groups. It seemed like a pointless conversation because she didn’t ask us to move (we didn’t have food or drinks yet), and didn’t offer accommodations to put us together. We didn’t even care one way or another. The only problem was that half of our group was running late. But they still made it within the 15min grace period. So again, it seemed like a pointless conversation. In conclusion, if you’re looking for good fried chicken (weekend brunch only) this is your spot.
