 (Atlanta)·Dined 2 days ago

I have been to Coquette many times and it never disappoints. I would not call myself a Foodie but I have been to two of Thomas Keller's restaurants and, while great meals, were not as fondly remembered and savored as Coquette. For some reason, I feel this place is special. The Magazine Street and NOLA vibe help with atmosphere. The intimate neighborhood and unpretentious ambiance come together in a way that can only happen in New Orleans.

Most visits, I urge the table (and usually prevail) to, in the menu's parlance, "Put yourself in Our Hands." This tasting menu is always special and full of creative, whimsical and compellingly crafted dishes.

Some highlights were the Red Fish (Snapper I believe), The butter beans paired with Altesse from Savoy. I am a red drinker at heart and we were served this wine just before the dish. A quick amuse bouche and I am thinking, "another wimpy white I won't remember." Oh, how wrong I was! Paired with the Butter beans, a duet was formed and it hit high notes. The Pork Tenderloin was paired with a Central Coast Pinot Noir and it shows just how far the San Luis Obispo has come as a wine region that it could hold its own with Pork prepared by a New Orleans chef.

Though I have forgotten the details of the palate cleanser issued prior to dessert, it was evident the depth of care involved in preparing a dish in anticipation of another dish.

Great staff, great time and great food from my pick as the number one attraction of New Orleans.

This dining experience hit all the right points from the moment we walked in. The server knew from reading our Open Table reservation info that we were celebrating our engagement and brought out a couple of glasses of sparkling wine. This set the right tone and it was maintained through the evening. Multiple servers tending to the table, taking away used dishes, glasses and stemware, and adding new with impeccable timing. The food itself was imaginative, delicious, thoughtfully plated, and smartly proportioned. At the end we were thoroughly satisfied but not stuffed. This is the best restaurant experience we've had in NOLA so far.

One of my favorite spots. New Orleans has excellent restaurants, but many of them do versions of the same (yes, delicious) creole thing. Coquette is refreshingly different and creative. The smoked catfish dip was delicious as were the baby carrots. The snapper, with celery, satsuma and brown butter made me want to lick the bowl. The ambiance -- especially in the upstairs dining room -- makes any dinner feel special.

Dining at Coquette was fabulous and delicious. We shared our plates and recommend the rabbit pâté, rillettes & rye bread, the pork loin with sweet potato, pecans, & crowder peas and the speckled trout & shrimp with chaurice sausage dressing. Definitely a great intro to southern cooking with locally sourced ingredients. All of the staff were friendly and very attentive. The service was excellent.

The food was as good as advertised. In particular, the Rainbow Trout entree was particularly well done in 3 areas -- it was baked to perfection -- it literally melted in my mouth; the sauce was sublime; and the herb mixture was tasteful and not over-bearing.

The sommelier & lead server / manager made our evening complete- total accolades to them both! We indulged in the blind tasting/wine pairing - memorable dishes were lamb lollipops, steamed trout & potato croquettes...rice w/pickled radish was a miss. Our designated server was too rushed & uninformed to handle a tasting menu but thankfully that’s when the lead stepped in to give us an overview (& solicit feedback). Overall a nice evening but for the price point, we’ve enjoyed other tasting experiences more...

Coquette is a very cozy place well worth the drive. Everybody is soooo helpful and kind. We were asked if everyone in the party could walk up the satirs because the 1st floor was temporarily closed and if there were any food allergies. When we said we didn’t like cooked cabbage the chef sent us potatoe instead. Very friendly waiters!

Couldn’t fault this place. The food was terrific - we had the smoked catfish served with fresh crunchy vegetables and the boudin noir with oyster to start. Then for mains the scallops with a herby sauce (sorry for the lack of technical specifications here but it was delicious!) and drum seared to perfection. The service was super friendly and attentive. All around a great evening!

food was really good not great. beautiful location, have been there before. experience was marred by the 27 degrees outside and the inability of the greeter to keep people moving and not standing there with the door wide open for minutes at a time. all the tables surrounding the door were affected and commented. would definitely eat there again and request the upstairs.

I only become more bold in saying this with each successive visit, but i'm pretty sure that Coquette is the best restaurant on the planet.

My wife and I have been to Coquette 3 times now over the last 6 years and we always get the chef's tasting menu. The flavor combinations are so creative, so brilliant it's a treat for all of your senses. I'd also strongly recommend the wine pairings. They are truly well considered and only enhance the experience. The desert pairing is usually a special treat.

The only reason we don't go more often is that i live 700 miles from there. If not, we'd go back every time the menu changed.

We did the blind tasting, not worth the $70 p/person in our opinion. Catfish dip with veggies, roasted carrots, gumbo, rabbit plate, sorbet, and dessert... carrots and small cup of gumbo, though good, not worth the price for the tasting. Individual plates are probably better to order, but we weren't really wowed for the almost $300 we spent ($35x2 for the wine pairing). The wines were good. Overall, the food was good, just not <$300 (including 18% tip) OMG good for the blind tasting.

Terrible. We had read the reviews and ate here. our food suspiciously arrived within 10 minutes of ordering and I had to send mine back as it was barely warm and on tasting, was undercooked.
Very condescending waitress reluctantly took it away to discuss with the chef. A completely different dish was presented to me that bore more of a resemblance to the menu description.
Waitress asked if it was 'more to my taste'. Lots of staff prowling around and on the whole a very austere and unwelcoming environment. They did comp my entree but I would not return and would not recommend.

We went to Coquette's on Christmas Eve and enjoyed it. The food - we had a meat and a chicken dish - was very good and our waiters were efficient but also friendly. A table next to us where everyone was having Ravillion (sp?) looked like they were having a great time. We're from out of town, but we would go back to Coquette's - maybe try lunch next time.

The food was good, not over the top fabulous, as I have come to expect from this restaurant. Too much fat on all the meats (including chicken breast sandwich) detracted from our enjoyment. And it would be nice if the servers smiled every now and then. Service was very competent, everything on time and delivered well, but servers looked very unhappy throughout the meal!
