My husband and I are on vacation celebrating our first wedding anniversary and we could not have asked for a better spot. It was the best meal of our lives.

I really wanted to like Coquette. We’re foodies so we picked it from all the buzz. Went for brunch. Options are limited. Went with fried chicken because, as waitress said “it’s what they’re known for”. Ordered half chicken. Two thighs, a wing and a drumstick. No breast. Comes with pickles, broccoli ham salad and deviled eggs. Oh and biscuits. Chicken was good. Not the best I’ve ever had but passable. Bloody Mary’s were unremarkable. Disappointing.

Very tasty food! I think the menu must change daily, but there weren't as many choices as I remembered from my one previous dining experience. The non-alcoholic cocktail with peach liquid, turmeric, and black pepper was delicious and refreshing. It's pretty noisy in the restaurant, making it a bit hard to have a conversation with family members who were in from Kentucky.

Food is mostly good, service was good, but the hostesses ruined our night. We had family in town for a graduation and we were looking forward to spending our rare and limited time together at Coquette. The restaurant would not allow groups of more than 6 for this particular busy weekend, so we made two separate reservations. When we got there, we saw that the restaurant was about half empty. We asked if we could be seated near each other but the hostess made no attempt to meet our request. In fact, we were seated at complete opposite ends of the dining room. Much of the restaurant emptied out fairly soon after we sat down. However, when we asked again, we were met with attitude, BS reasons, and being blamed for having made separate reservations, of which we had no choice.

I rarely write bad reviews, but the lack of any attempt whatsoever to resolve the matter by the hostesses put a damper on our night. It’s a shame that this happened since I had a great experience my first time. Perhaps they just have issues with seating arrangements for large groups. In the end, I regret spending such a special occasion here, and I won’t be bringing anyone I care to spend time with to Coquette any time soon.

It was ok. We wouldn't say this is a "must go to" restaurant as it was only good. It is a bar atmosphere and not what we thought it would be. Service was good. Food was good but not anything to brag about for us.

Time is often fluid in NOLA and we needed to adjust our reservation. Alexa, the manager, was graciously accommodating and understanding. We tried the five course blind tasting menu and we were very happy that we did! Each course built on the last, from the shrimp hush puppies through the desserts. The portions were perfect and the flavor combinations just blew us away.

In addition to the great food, the service was impeccable. At one point I dripped something on my shirt so I went to the bathroom to spot it with water only to come back to a stain removing pen waiting for me on my refolded napkin. Now that's some serious attention.

Thank you for the wonderful all around experience. We'll be back next year for JazzFest (if not sooner)!

Gave us wrong menu for brunch. Ordered off the dinner menu thinking this was their brunch with unacceptable choices for a morning meal. When order was delivered, it was the wrong dish. When received correct menu, the choices for brunch were very limited.

This was our best meal in New Orleans and probably one of the best meals I have ever had. My wife and I live in Los Angeles and eat at a lot of amazing restaurants there, but this was next level. We started with the pimento cheese and the chicken liver mousse. Both were the platonic ideal of those dishes. I am still thinking about that pimento cheese days later. They use two year old Hook's cheddar which gave it an incredible depth of flavor. I had the chicken entree and my wife had the crab and vegetables. Both delicious. And the chocolate pudding with burnt honey ice cream was outstanding. There's obviously a lot of great food in New Orleans, but this is the place I will always come back to.

Kevin and staff made sure service was at a high level. They had mastered the menu, and everything arrive just at the right time in the right way. Magical food moments came from the grilled baby carrots, the crawfish agnolotti, and carrot cake perfectly paired with a special madeira wine. We got lots of vitamin D and had a great time.

During the family's annual trip to NOLA for Jazz Fest we were lucky enough to find Coquette. The building is interesting and so is the food. Everything we had was outstanding. The only caveat is that the menu is limited, so check it out before you go to make sure there is something for everyone.

We were early for our reservation because there was nothing much to do on magazine st. They accommodated us early with no problem. We ordered the smoked catfish dip, the chicken and the short rib. We ended up liking the dip the best. It was smoky and flavorful. The chicken was dark meat wrapped in white meat and very tender and moist. The rib was good but not as different than any other rib. Service was excellent. Will go back.

I don't know where to begin. I only hope the chefs Michael Stoltzfus and Kristen Essig took the night off and used Manpower for a replacement. We hoped to enjoy the tasting menu. By the way, the price is not the same as advertised (more of course). The opening dish had a small thin slice of country ham (great but salty by nature). We were given an actual butter knife to try and cut it. The aioli that was served with it was mostly salt, not a great opening. Next, we had a smoked beef tongue, good but again salty. Next, we had a rice dish that was to have an oyster on top, mine must have swum away. This was followed by a less than remarkable small fish filet described as American redfish (not proud enough of the dish to actually name the species?). The skin on the fish was soggy and covered with celery salt. Smoked short ribs were the highlight of the meal. A small scoop of berry sorbet with rye bread crumbs was the pallet cleanser which was followed by a cute but very tasteless and small assemblage of tiny cookies, broken chocolate pieces, and chocolate syrup. Before and during our meal, two martinis and two manhattans were served both had two olives. In addition to the charge for the drinks on the check, the olives appeared as a separate item for $16. In the thirty-five years my wife and myself and been going to New Orleans for weeks or months at a time this was one of our most disappointing dining experiences. If this a James Beard Foundation nominee for best chef in the south the Foundation needs to reevaluate their standards.

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!
