Great place to celebrate New Year’s Eve during COVID. Tables separated, plastic separated and masked staff. Felt very comfortable. Our waiter was amazing. So full of joy.

Reserved for New Years Eve. We were not told it was prix fixe. Service more rushed than I would like. Menu needs an update, or at least ba few specials.

My wife and I go to this restaurant at least a couple times per year (we are living in Brooklyn, NY) more than for 10 years. Especially in December when we are celebrating our anniversary.

This venue steadily holds a high level of elegant gourmet food, service and ambience.

My friend and went to celebrate my birthday . The poor quality of service. took the taste right out of my mouth.
The restaurant was also extremely noisy like a cafeteria. Wait staff member seem to just give us the bare minium attention
At one point no water or drinks while eating. The color of black america is barely tolerated. You took the Green from my wallet.

The service was simply excellent. The food was also excellent. Fresh, large salad, crab cake and shrimp pesto pasta were all better than expected. Cannot recommend highly enough.

La Coquille may well be the finest restaurant on Long Island. The food is simply terrific, especially the sole en croute, the service is consistently wonderful and the decor is lovely. All kudos to Michaelangelo and the entire staff.

Outstanding once again! Yummy peach martini cocktails. Tuna tartare and Escargot appetizers were delicious. Even the bread is special and delicious. Both of us had the fish special entrees over steamed vegetables. We shared one amazing Key Lemon Pie. Finally they surprised us with an amazing, rich, chocolate mousse as it was my birthday! The service, ambience, food, presentation is outstanding. Back soon!

The food was pretty good. Service on the other hand needs much improvement. Waiter was not attentive or helpful. Waiter totally forgot to bring a drink that was ordered. Then gave the wrong bill. Besides food and ambience service has to be worked on.

We had a wonderful time at La Coquille. It was recommended by a French friend of mine. My wife and I got to lots of restaurants, from Suffolk to Manhattan, with lots of stops in Queens. My wife loved this place. We will be back.

Our family’s first time dining at this restaurant. Thank goodness for all the positive reviews, we’re very pleased. Our time was limited due to our daughter’s work schedule. The food came out quickly. It was so flavorful and delicious, the portions were just right and service was excellent. This restaurant is a definitely keep.

Our meal was delicious from appetizers t o entrees. The only downside was the lack of attention to our table by the server. He would disappear then reappear to be flagged down when we requested a refill on water glasses. Apparently regular diners get the attention and "newbies" don't. When we ordered a tartufo for dessert along with coffee, we specifically asked for heavy whipped cream. The dessert came out promptly with a minuscule portion of whipped cream. And the coffee never came until we flagged him down again, dessert finished by then.

We went there for our 20th Anniversary and the service was top notch, the food amazing and the place is just so romantic. The bill was a little on the high side but it was worth it to us. Not a place for children. Love this beautiful romantic restaurant.
