Fantastic, superb every dish was heavenly sent. The presentation was as good as a magazine shoot. Only downside it was noisy. Hard to hear the person next to me ( and I hear well). Decor did not absorb sound and the speakers were overhead and turned too loud.
Absolutely amazing! I am from NOLA so it’s hard to impress me....I fell in love with Coquette!
Best meal of our trip. Amazing. Insanely delicious flavors. Great service. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Great restaurant , amazing food. Ambiance on main level amazing, but they brought us upstairs and it was the total opposite. Asked if we could go downstairs but were told the main level was for large groups.
When we left we saw 2 empty tables for 2 in a bustling lively environment.. not sure why they couldn’t accommodate us.
The five course tasting menu was amazing!
I spent the last seven days and nights eating lu ch and dinner at every imaginable turn and Coquette winds the gold medal, hands down. We took my 88 years young native New Orleanian mom for her birthday. She’s an outstanding cook herself and has an acutely critical pallete that usually ends with I WOULDNT CALL THAT GUMBO and sometimes YUCK. No such words ever sounded from her mouth as she relished with every bite of her redfish. We also dined on speckled trout and pork chops and luckily I was able to taste each.
It was a savory and sweet culinary climb all week long but no meal delivered like Coquette. It’s the only restaurant I would have loved to revisit and dit at the beautifully restored bar and sample a tasting menu.
See you on Mom’s 89th!
My hubby and I wanted to try something new. This place had awesome reviews. The menu was very small and the food was ok. It was way over priced. They were also out of all Canadian liquor. My hubby was very upset. Also the beer list they claim to have was awful and not a good selection at all. We were not too impressed and will not be returning.
Wonderful- exceeded expectations!
Good food, awesome ambiance.
This is my third trip to Coquette. We were there for Saturday brunch, and we ordered the family style fried chicken lunch which came with biscuits, deviled eggs, mashed potatoes, greens and pickles. I asked to add a plate of crawfish beignets, which only added $5 to the meal. There were 4 of us and when the food arrived, we weren't sure it would be enough. Everything was delicious and we ended up taking home leftovers! I've also been here for an anniversary dinner and we chose the tasting menu with wine pairings. You just trust the staff to bring out dishes and everything was incredible. An unforgettable night. This is a top notch restaurant without being pretentious at all. Can't wait until my next trip to NOLA to eat here again.
Everything was nice. Great ambiance, beautiful building. It was a little loud but not much can be done about that. I thought the food was good but slightly overpriced. We had eaten the evening before at Cafe Amelie and thought it was better in every way and about the same price for better food. The waitress was excellent.
Went for my wife’s birthday while in New Orleans. Amazing food and service with a personalized experience that makes for a memorable meal. It’s clear the staff enjoy working there!
Food was very well prepared. Trout was delicious! Service was a little slow. Would benefit by more of a “team” approach to serving. It was a cool night and we were seated near the door so got a blast of cold air every time someone walked in.
Best snapper preparation we'd had since Paris. Incredible meal and the most memorable of all in our New Orleans stay.
As usual, Coquette didn’t disappoint. Food gets 4 stars because the fried chicken lacked depth of flavor and the tiramisu seemed like it didn’t use ladyfingers. These were just oops, not enough to turn me away. I’ll be back!
We did the tasting menu with wine pairing for two people and it was almost $300. For that price I expected exceptional food and service and received neither. Service was very slow, food was just ok, and the wine pairings were sparse. I would have felt that I overpaid at half the price, so felt completely ripped off when the bill came. Will never come back, much better food and value elsewhere.
Exceptional food. Simple and sophisticated in the same time. I had the octopus (the broth was divine) and the trout which was unbelievable.
We had appetizers and drinks here prior to dinner at Commander's Palace. The ambiance was quiet and sexy with a cool bar and lighting around the bar. Great drinks, food, and excellent service! We were in town a short while so we tried to hit the best local places -this is definitely one I’d recommend!
Our favorite spot in nola, never had a bad experience and recommend to everyone.
The. Best. Food. In. NOLA. Period. Wait, make that six periods. Really, you must try this restaurant. As foodies, we were blown away by the flavor profiles.
Really really good food. Seating better downstairs for a romantic evening. Upstairs was very noisy
The trout was FANTASTIC! would definitely come again!
Friendly, professional and prompt service
Creative food, tasty, excellent.
Will definitely recommend Coquette
Wonderful atmosphere with very good food. Did the tasting and was pleasantly surprised by what the chef brought out for us. They definitely saved the best for last with the most delicious dessert! Would definitely recommend to anyone in the New Orleans area. Additionally, would definitely recommend making a reservation!
The interior is inviting and warm. The menu is deceptively simple. By that I mean it lists feature ingredients. But the menu came alive when Loriana described the preparation and tastes of the food. Well done! I also like that she showed us the wine bottles even though we only had wine by the glass. Never know when you might have a new favorite to recognize in the wine shop.
We did the tasting menu and it was wonderful. We loved the long rice with popcorn! Thank you for a nice evening
Delicious and creative menu, lovely presentation of appetizers and entrees, signature cocktails (alcoholic and non-), intimate atmosphere without being fussy, tremendous service — a new favorite place to share a wonderful and unrushed meal! Best to make a reservation so that you can enjoy your meal— there were several ‘stop-in’ potential diners in the 6 pm timeframe who were turned away because there were not any available tables.
Was ok. The server was very nice and staff friendly. Portions were way under sized. When I order a New York strip, I expect a steak not 2 tiny medallions. The catfish mousse with crudités small plate was nice but awkward to eat.
We did the chef's blind tasting 5-course menu with wine pairing. A lovely surprise came in the form of two amuse bouche beforehand. Each course was delectable, and the wine pairings were perfect. Our server was extremely knowledgeable about the food and wine. I had a lot of great meals this trip, but this was my favorite. I will do it again the next time I am in New Orleans, which will be soon!
Food was great, drinks were good but took a long time to get them. We had to remind server twice about checking on drink order. We had a reservation and there were plenty of tables downstairs by the window but they sat us upstairs in the corner with large party with lots of children. We didn’t get the option to sit downstairs by the window, as we had hoped.
This is a great place to dine. Small and quaint worth the trip down Magazine St. Food and service was amazing
The most delicious red snapper I have ever had! A great dining experience!
My husband and I ate here for a belated Valentine's day dinner. When I made the reservations I did so based on babysitter availability. I forgot all about lent. My husband doesn't eat meat or dairy on Wednesdays and Fridays during lent. I had my heart set on the blind tasting but was worried they couldn't accommodate with my husband's dietary restrictions. I called 2 days before to make sure it wouldn't be an issue. I spoke with Lauren, she was very friendly and super understanding. She made a note on our reservations for us. They even called the next day to confirm our reservations and dietary restrictions again so that the kitchen could prepare. From the time we arrived the service was great. Our waitress was actually Lauren, and she was wonderful. I don't know how they made a 7 course meal with no dairy or meat (seafood was ok to eat) but they did, and it was nothing short of fabulous! I also had the wine pairing and every glass of wine was so good! I can't wait to go back and eat there when we don't have any dietary restrictions. Highly recommend this place to anyone.
We had a wonderful dining experience at Coquette. The service was attentive but not intrusive. The food was delicious and beautifully prepared and presented. The atmosphere was perfect. Our group of five could easily visit and hear each other.
The menu changes but it’s always excellent.
We felt like service was more appropriate for the tables around us. No one explained the dishes to us and we saw dishes being explained to other tables. When we were directed to the bar when we first walked in, the female bartender did not greet us, but asked us with an attitude whether or not we had a reservation. I know I was polite and smiled, but definitely felt like this was not reciprocated. No one was aware that it was my fiancé’s birthday despite me stating that under the reservation. Food was great. Crawfish agnolotti entree was good, but the portion (about 4-5 pieces of stuffed pasta) was probably about a third or less than a third of the red snapper entree.
Went here during Mardi Gras and really enjoyed the food. The menu is limited, but you can count on high quality and innovative dishes to select from. The craft cocktails are excellent and the waitstaff is well informed, polite and friendly. The space is intimate with limited amount of tables so definitely make reservations. The bar is beautiful and a great spot to stop for a pre-dinner cocktail. The dining room is relatively quiet so that you can actually enjoy (and hear) conversation with your dinner companions. Definitely worth a visit, but pricey.
We had the brunch fried chicken which we had enjoyed in past. This time, there were many fewer pieces of chicken and a side of uninspired mashed potatoes.
We had a great experience at Coquette. The entire meal was exceptional. The staff were engaging, friendly, and knowledgeable about the menu and wine. The food was outstanding as well.
Fantastic. It doesn’t get any better!!
