Saturday lunch at Coquette Brasserie was delightful with open floor to ceiling windows open for the lovely spring temps and a view of the restaurant's seasonal flowers. Menu for lunch had great choices at moderate prices and good wine selection--we had wine with the lunch. Bread and butter for table was added delight. Service excellent.
I started with their signature French onion soup, which was awesome. I chose their featured entree, which consisted of sliced lamb pieces complimented with some veggies; it was good however not spectacular; the lamb was a little tough but tasty. The service was great, provided by Kirstin who should be recognized by Management; it was quite busy and Kirstin was very attentive to every table's needs. I've mostly dined here for Sunday brunch and I'll be back again.
Loved the food and ambiance! Was a gorgeous night and the doors in restaurant were open, so it felt extra special!
Always excellent service and great!
A delightful evening on our first visit to Coquette Brasserie. Lovely, quintessentially French bistro ambiance and menu (albeit with more space between the tables than usual - a good thing). Daily specials listed on the left side of the menu (Bouillabaisse on Monday!) and some classic bistro dishes such as coq au vin, boeuf bourguignon and, of course, duck. Though disappointed not to see cassoulet on the menu there are more than enough options. M friend and I shared the Market Fish (Amberjack) and Duck Breast entrees, after polishing off the amazing steak tartare along with the 2016 St Cosme Syrah, Cotes du Rhone. Fairly extensive wine list to meet most anyone's desires (with California, South American and Australian wines), though we would be perfectly happy with a solid list of French wines. We would have preferred more time between our hors d'oeuvres and entrees, as we were not quite finished when the entree arrived. I definitely look forward to going back multiple times. It was a delightful evening with great food, good wine, and perfect company. A special touch - family photos lining the back wall. Very definitely a French bistro!
Love this little spot. I come here any chance I get - always good for brunch or dinner.
My wife and I dined here on 2/17/18 as a late Valentine's Day date. Things did not start out great, but did pick up. I ordered the Escargot as an appetizer. They were somewhat rubbery with very little taste. For the main dish, I had the seafood crepe, which my wife and I both enjoyed. She was sharing mine because of the second issue - her main dish, the scallops were seared almost to the point of being burnt. A new plate was brought out with a lighter sear and we both enjoyed them. They did top off my wife's first glass of wine and gave us both complimentary second glasses. I think that is a professional way to handle that situation. For dessert, we shared peppermint ice cream with chocolate sauce in some sort of a soft shell. It was very good. The service was very attentive. I think the décor leaves a little to be desired. The prices were mostly reasonable, even without accounting for the $20.00 Open Table coupon we had.
Although we made the reservation for the wrong night the hostess worked us in very quickly.
Coquette is a fantastic restaurant. The food is great. I recommend their charcuterie. Dinner for two is on the high-side (about $100 with a glass of wine). This may not be your go-to place because it’s expensive, but it’s definitely worth going to for brunch, or any special occasion (birthday, anniversary, or a first date). The service is prompt and very professional. I would say the servers are more formal than familiar. That’s not a criticism.
The atmosphere is a classic French bistros, with black & white tile floor, wood chairs, and round marble tables (without table cloths). The bar is amazing. It’s large, with a metal top, near the center of the restaurant. It’s well designed, with a shelves that allow patrons to see the alcohol while either sitting at the bar, or sitting at a dinner table. The bartenders make a good Old Fashioned, and the restaurant is stocked with a decent selection of bourbon. It’s definitely worth visiting Coquette for a cocktail.
In the spring and summer the restaurant opens their large windows near the front of the restaurant. While the view looks out onto the parking lot and Six Forks road beyond, it still provides a certain amount of flair.
Went there for a late Valentine's Day celebration. Food was excellent and the atmosphere is romantic. We both loved it. Never have been disappointed.
