Service was excellent, however, the quality of food was poor and I’ve had better.

Duck was over cooked and thus chewy.

Veal was okay but too much of one flavor.

Too pricey for the subpar meals.

Will not go back.

The food was very good.. my crab cake was delicious, the escargots had a nice sauce, the octopus salad was exquisite. Somebody at the table remarked that at this restaurant he was able to have a choice of mains, as opposed to other restaurants, where, due to his dietary restrictions, most of the time he was able to have only one dish.
The pasta with sea food was tasty, although a little soggy( not al dente)
The steak came exactly as ordered, which is rarely happening at other places, and the special ( fish) was extremely good!
The service was ok.. we had to ask several times for parmesan, and finally maitre d’ brought it to the table( freshly grated )..!i guess they are short of people
All in all, it was a very pleasant experience, and we will return!

La Coquille is our favorite restaurant on Long Island. We have been going there for more than 30 years and at first we used this only for special occasions. Now we go there as often as we can and take guests there as well. We have never been disappointed in either the food or service.

Ordered the warm octopus salad and the duck. Both were excellent. Octopus was cooked perfectly and tender. The duck was prepared equally as perfect. Moist and succulent. Finished off with the chocolate cheesecake. Excellent! Ambience is quiet. Food came out in timely fashion and warm. Recommend this place for fine dining.

The food was delicious. The tuna tartare was so beyond fresh …. French onion soup was on point and the duck I had for dinner was prob the best duck I’ve had to date. My husband had steak and he loved it. Drinks were perfect and desserts were delicious as well. Will be back soon hopefully truly enjoyed this experience

This is the best French Restaurant on the North Shore of LI. We have been a customer here for over 20 years and everything is still great. They have added partitions for social distancing and have outdoor seating available as well. It's great to be back after the pandemic!

The bus boy did not understand my request. Three times asked for a glass of rose while waiting for my guests to arrive. When I asked him a question; he looked at me like I had 3 heads. Please hire people that at least have a minimal understanding of English. I almost went to the bar to get me own glass of wine.
Food has always been perfect at LaCoquille; but, the rosti served with the salmon was hard and could have been used as an emery board. Asparagus or green french beans would have been a better choice that ratatouille and certainly a more pleasing presentation than the ratatouille which looked like a mixture of left over vegetables. The ambiance is always elegant and the wines fine; but, quality of entrees is slipping.

Avocado cold soup was very special voila!! Veal chop cooked to perfection with an unbelievable mushroom sauce. Halibut is prepared differently each week and it is always delicious, Special dessert is always a treat, this time a homemade strawberry ice cream pie. Wonderful half bottle wine selection.
