Came highly recommended and was totally worth it! Trust the chef and go with the tasting menu. They are super adaptable and asked about allergies, strong dislikes, etc. I would not have ordered many of the things we got on the tasting menu but was so glad to have tried them. The red snapper dish was AMAZING. The seafood and all ingredients were so fresh and delicious. Would definitely recommend for a date night or group of friends if you are all willing to drop a little cash. Fantastic wines as well.

When my friend suggested this restaurant I thought it looked great based on reviews. I was very disappointed.

We were seated in front of the door on a very cold night despite having made the reservation weeks prior.

The food was average at best for those prices. The small plate shrimp was over cooked The beef was very tough and filled with grizzle. We did not complain but when they saw we did not eat it they did offer to remove it from our check.

There are too many great options in NOLA to waste money on this one.

As an out-of-town visitor to New Orleans, it was so nice to experience a restaurant out of the hustle and bustle of downtown with a genuine neighborhood feel. The atmosphere is cozy and comfortable, but entirely sophisticated. Upon arriving, we were quickly seated and made to feel welcome. Within seconds we were greeted by several waitstaff, manager, hostess, and as he called himself "the wine guy." My date and I had already decided to try the "Put Yourself in Our Hands" option on the menu; a five course meal with a wine pairing. Our waitress greeted us with a friendly smile and let us know options for the evening meal and offered to get us something from the bar. We informed her of our decision to try the Chef's choices and within minutes lovely snacks appeared on our table (not part of the five courses). I feel like I really should mention the snack. It was amazing! The crisp pork rind was perfection by itself, but when served with the house made pimento cheese the pork rind became a conduit for a creamy, cheesy goodness with an amazing explosion of flavor. I won't go into detail about each course, which were all immaculately presented, and lovingly served, but needless to say, our evening was an experience of exquisitely prepared dishes, appropriately proportioned, and elegantly served. The wine pairing was an excellent decision and a real treat. Having dined at Michelin Star restaurants in the the past, Coquette did not disappoint, and will definitely be at the top of my list when I return to New Orleans.

The food at Coquette is very, very good (and I write as a food snob), and the staff are charming and helpful. I quizzed our waitress about almost everything on the menu and really enjoyed hearing her talk about the food. I had a barrel aged gin for dessert, and when I asked about it, l I was given a handwritten card about it and it’s producer. The room is nice—chandeliers in a neighborhood sort of setting. Highly recommend.

Beautiful food served in an elegant space. Each dish tasted great and was executed very well with perfect texture. No dish was overwhelmed with an overly done sauce or seasoning. The ingredients were allowed to speak for themselves. Really tasty opening little snack that set the tone.

Service was professional and on point.

All in all, have been here several times over the past few years and never disappointed. Wanted to try again and was not impressed with the selection on the menu. Changes daily and not what is on the web site. You should call before going to make sure that the menu is to your liking. Something about farm-to-table. For me, I don’t eat fish and there were two fish dishes, rabbit, an a rice dish. Needless to say, I had rice for dinner.

Spectacular from start to finish. A beautiful space, warm service, and impeccable food. Every single bite. We put ourselves in their hands with a 5-course tasting menu. The snack set the tone — beautiful pate on perfectly grilled bread with bright satsuma and pickled bites, with the best tater tot I could ever hope to have. Courses included smoked cobia, and a delicate crabmeat and rice with popcorn, and a white fish, and...sorry, it gets hazy for the very best reasons. Perfectly balanced, perfect plating. What a meal!

I originally booked the reservation knowing a wife of my client and friend would be attending, who loves to find places with creative cuisine. Unfortunately she couldn't make it, leaving 4 manly men, two from Texas who prefer the biggest steak around... since dinner fell on me, I was a bit apprehensive keeping the reservation and just booking a steak house. I'm so glad we kept the reservation. We did the blind chef's dinner with wine pairing. It was amazing. Blue crab with popcorn? The flavors, the texture, this and the trout seemed to be everyone's favorites. The next day the four of us had a fishing trip... they all couldn't stop talking about it during the day. Cud-dos to the chef, the wait staff and vision of ownership to take such risks. This place is definitely on my list the next time I stop in New Orleans.

I’ve been MANY times to coquette for dinner. The chefs blind tasting is ALWAYS a favorite and never a dissapointment. I often take out of town guests here just for that purpose. Ate here for brunch and was fairly disappointed. Everything had dill on top and it was not tasty at all. I’d heard such great things about brunch here. Won’t be going back for that ever again. However. I will be continuing to bring people here for dinner.

Coquette was highly recommended to us by the owners of "il Giallo" in Sandy Springs, GA.
It is a charming restaurant in the garden quarter of New Orleans in a lovely old building. The downstairs dining and gorgeous bar area are smallish but perfect to dine in if you don't want to climb many stairs to their dining room upstairs. (No lift.) Service is impeccable and very helpful, and both of their snapper and trout entrees were exceptionally delicious. I can't rave enough about their incredible apple caramel dessert which was so unusual and one of the best desserts I have ever enjoyed. We love this restaurant and think it is one of the best in NOLA.

We visited Coquette for our last dinner out in New Orleans. As a group of four friends who love food, we were not disappointed. We chose the Chef's Tasting menu and wine pairings and enjoyed everything - very flavorful and creative. I highly recommend Coquette to anyone who wants a special meal in a casual but classy atmosphere. Prices were reasonable, cocktails were tasty, and service was attentive.

The food was excellent but the food service was lacking that day. The waiter had a large party in the back and disappeared for long periods. I am not sure if it was the waiter or the kitchen that caused an almost 30 minutes wait for our entree after our appetizers were served. This was a Sunday brunch time period.

If you go very hungry, which we were, note that you'll spend some $$$ to be full as the portions are on the small size.

No fancy linens or glassware just pleasant well presented food and wines. The trout over shrimp sauce was particularly delicious
The choice of wines paired beautifully with the food

This was our fourth time at a Kristen Essig restaurant. Our second trip to Coquette where Kristin and her partner, Michael Stolzfus, continue to amaze.

For the second time, we ordered the Chef Tasting menu for the table. Each course was presented by various upbeat knowledgeable waitstaff members. They all seem sincerely happy to be a part of the experience.
The dishes are a work of art and a gastric delight. It was also the second time that we brought out of town guests and like us, they can not wait to return. Ambience, service, great cocktail selection, and incredible food.

We had the blind 5 course menu with the wine pairing. This requires full table participation. There is an option to customize by your dietary restrictions, which is awesome for a pescatarian with nut allergies and vegetarian on a date. We enjoyed each other's meals and at times had options just for us, including the wine. The ambiance, service and food courses were superb. This was our first introduction to New Orleans casual fine dining and it didn't disappoint. If you are a foodie then you will love it.
