For brunch I went here years ago and had the best brunch. They should not advertise as brunch now as only one egg dish on the menu. Very disappointing for brunch. This is however a good place for lunch.

I REALLY REALLY wanted to just LOVE this restaurant. I absolutely LOVED the ambiance and location but the menu was very limited and the food was not up to par. I had a significant amount of large, hard crab shells in one of my dishes. The best part was the bread/butter service, the bar, and the atmosphere. Will have to go back when/if the menu changes

Sat down and didn’t know what to order. Was very happy when I decided to get the short ribs, they were great and the plating was beautiful.

Been to this restaurant many times and always a good experience but it had been several months. This time I and my dinner mates was very disappointed. The menu was very small. We had 2 small plates and 3 large plates. Everything seemed like they were trying too hard. I like interesting flavor combinations but some of these didn't work well. One of our guest doesn't eat spicy food so we asked about the rise dish which said it had jalapeno and were told it wasn't spicy at all. It in fact was, and wasn't very good. There chicken was so so. The eggplant large plate was good. The deconstructed desserts were a bust. Overall not as good as it had been.

The menu was so interesting that we ordered small plates so we could taste (not quite) everything and we were not disappointed- even the bread and butter was delicious! Our servers were flawless and charming. Our experience was everything a dinner should be- and much more.

Food was good, best was my husband's ravioli, it was delicious. We got the trio of appetizers, which were good. Great service and restaurant is small but we didn't feel crowded at all; only issue was the sun coming in the window was blinding and were told there are no shades and to wait for the sun to set. We were with another couple so sat at a table, will definitely sit at the bar next time we go alone. Staff was friendly and drinks were very good, I got a French 75 which was delicious.

Friday date night meal and all was outstanding.
Fish dip starter followed by chicken and short rib entrees.
Semifredo for dessert and all washed down by a cold bottle of Taittinger Brut champagne.
The short rib was the best and most interesting dish but all was great. We will return and hopefully soon.

I have eaten at this award winning restaurant on several occasions and just keep coming back... the food, atmosphere and smallish but curated wine selection is excellent. While not inexpensive, I enthusiastically suggest the "feed me" selection on the menu with the wine pairing. Such a treat to not know what you are getting and letting the chef surprise you with his coordinated selections. I am NEVER disappointed and my trust in the Chef's selections has always proved to be well placed. A James Beard award winner... and I can see why.

We've loved this place in the past and it was not a disappointment. The food was delicious and well presented, dare I say beautiful? We had the tasting menu and it was diverse and wonderful. The combinations were great. One time my daughter said it was her best meal and we cannot dispute that. We continue to recommend it to any out-of-towners we visit!

Great atmosphere in the typical New Orleans flair. Went for Sunday brunch. Excellent food, as usual. One of my favorite places to dine in the Magazine street (uptown) area. A+!

We had a lovely work dinner here— we were here all week and this was by far my favorite choice! Every appetizer was exceptional and my agnolotti was to die for. The Ketel One dirty martini I got was 5 stars, too. Our server was helpful explaining dishes and came to check on us when appropriate. I’ll be back next time I travel for work! Thank you!

Very knowledgeable and helpful staff. Menu selections are limited and bit left of typical. Food prep and presentation was well done although perhaps a bit more suited to someone with a discerning palate. Would recommend it highly if you are seeking something different...

The food is OUTSTANDING. Excellent dishes, cocktails, and a great wine list. The full list is impressive and as to be expected, but the shortlist highlights wines that you do not typically find on a shortlist; Gamays, Carignans, etc., as well as many standards; cabs, pinots, and very relatable to the menu. The decor and ambience is class yet refined and expertly curated. The space has a tendency to become loud when full, which can be problematic when trying to have a quiet conversation, but I wouldn't let it hold you back from checking out this GEM.

Coquette is a wonderful tried and true New Orleans classic. In just 10 years, it has established itself as one of the top restaurants in the city. We celebrated our anniversary this week, and the service and food were both terrific. Can't recommend it enough!

We sat at the gorgeous stately bar under the glittering chandeliers and caught up with friends as we and quaffed wine and cocktails and ate great appetizers and some truly fabulous ribs. Bartender Carlos made it a wonderful memorable evening and we are already planning our return.

We took my father in law for a belated Father’s Day dinner. We decide to do the bling dinner & wine tasting. What a treat! The sommelier made the evening perfect with his description of our food and wine. The food was amazing!! We would have never thought of pairing the flavors but they were spot on. The only con was the lack of ambiance downstairs & the loud music coming out of the speaker just above our table. Made it hard to hear the sommelier. We will request upstairs next time. Even though it was loud, we still enjoyed it thoroughly and will certainly go again.

THE perfect dinner. At New Orleans, le you want to have a romantic and tranquil dinner you have to go some 2-3 miles out of downtown at Magazine Street. Coquette is a culinary perfection to discover absolutely!!
