The food is freshly prepared and there are some truly excellent dishes. The wine list is good for choices to align to your entrees. He cocktails are also very good.

Recently went to a French restaurant in Woodbridge Virginia. Dining experience there was outstanding. Thought we would try La Coquille here at home in Long Island based on generally favorable online reviews. We were very disappointed with the experience as compared to the VA restaurant. Food was good but nothing else impressed us.

The only negative was a corkage charge of $20 for a bottle of non alcoholic wine that one of our party brought in because she does not drink alcohol. The rest of us bought 2 bottles of wine from their wine list.

We had Easter dinner and it was exceptional. The lamb chops were incredible, and the salads and artichoke were also delicious. We can't wait to return for dinner.

This was to be a special anniversary dinner and I requested a table in the rear room. When we got there they directed us to a cramped table in the middle of the main room. They said they had a large party in the rear room. If I knew that I would have made other arrangements. The food was excellent but when the check came the waiter came to pick up the signed bill too quickly as though they were in a hurry to turn the table. I love the food but I don't think I will go back

La Coquille is consistently outstanding. Food and service are the best in town. No other restaurant like it in the area. I go with a friend who consistently comes to Manhasset from Manhattan to go here and that speaks volumes!

This restaurant is a throw back to the 1980s. The food is classic French. The cooking was solid; my duck was perfectly cooked, but there is nothing interesting or innovative about the dishes. The ambiance leaned towards elegant (white tablecloths, etc), but the tables were crowded together and the noise level was loud. Service was indifferent. Order was taken, food was delivered, but there was no effort to check back to make sure everything was okay or to see if we wanted additional drinks. Overall, I thought it was an okay restaurant, but won't make my list of favorites.

a touch of Paris in long island, it was my wife's birthday and we asked to sit in the small room by the fire place and we weren't disappointed. we had the room to ourselves! my wife enjoyed crab meat cocktail and duck breast and was not disappointed. I had my favorite foie gras, superb and the venison special, cooked perfectly.
drinks were great and deserts were awesome!
attentive but not intrusive wait staff.. can't wait to return

We cannot afford to go out to costly restaurants except for special occasions. My wife and I went to Paris 4 years ago, and almost always choose French Cuisine for our "costly special occasion" meals. this restaurant was the BEST we've been to in Nassau County....and about 25% LESS costly than the others. Everything was wonderful.....we will be back....as often as we can!

My husband and I loved the baked oysters. My Dover sole was good but not excellent. My husband had the duck also was good. Would like to have more choices on champagne by the glass . My first glass wasn't cold . My second was in a frosted glass much better. Service was good.

Made a reservation on opentable, all that was available was 8.30 so we took it. I did note that we would like to be moved to 7.30, I also called on Thursday and spoke to someone and left the same msg.
We walked in at 7:40 for drinks at the bar and were seated immediately. Well, it was a nice surprise but someone should have contacted us in advance. The restaurant was not even full so I count that against them. Service was so so, we waited a long time for someone to come to our table, then we had to request a cocktail menu, then wait to take our drink order and did not get menus for at least 20 mins after that.... isn.t that what the hostess does ?
EScargot delish, dinner and crepe Suzette's were good. I feel we were not treated up to the standard of a four star restaurant so would not think about going again.

Disappointed that souffles were not being offered even though they are on the menu. Souffles were one of the main reasons for coming here.
My halibut, that was on the specials menu, was slightly over cooked, but still very good. The duck was raved about but the tuna was not top quality and even a little fishy.
Loved the artichoke appetizer and the desserts were strange. Who makes bananas Foster with just whipped cream and not ice cream? Had to ask for a side dish of ice cream to complete the dessert.
And I think the staff needs a lesson about coffees. Oh, BTW, even though French restaurants are known for their wine, beer is a big part of Euro food. How about a few beers that are not bud, Miller or Mexican.

The appetizers were very good. We had the blueprint oysters, cream of mushroom soup, French onion soup and the escargot. The oysters were very fresh and the soups were delicious. They did a great job on the roast duck but the two fishes we had were over cooked. The waiter asked us if we would like the salmon split for the kids which was very nice but it would also have been nice if we were informed that a $10 charge would be tabbed on. All in all the food was good.

I was expecting much better for the price. The place was nice and i expected the food to be phenomenal. The appetizers were good. We had paté which was excellent but i am certain they dont make it there. Im sure the paté itself was store bought and it was garnished there. I could be wrong. The french onion soup was good but that is really hard to mess that up.
For entreés we had the duck l'orange which needed a lot of seasoning. It needed more sauce and salt. I guess they cater to their demographic (older white people who do not use much salt in their cooking.) We also ordered the NY strip. It was cooked perfectly but like everything else it needed salt. We had the salmon. The mashed potatoes were great. The salmon itself was cooked perfectly but it needed salt. I know what you're saying..there is salt on the table. Why didnt i just add more salt? Its different if the protein was marinated in the seasoning rather than just adding it in the end. Besides, it's a semi-fancy restaurant. Why should i have to season my own food? You may think I'm just one person and this is one person's opinion. There were 3 of us and the consensus was the same.
The desserts are good but like the appetizers, i dont think they were made there or hard to mess up. I had the Napoleon which was good. We had the creme brulé which was on the sweet side but still good. They had a merengue with caramel sauce floating in vanilla cream. That was good too. The desserts were probably the stars of the night and saved dinner. I could be wrong. They probably make their desserts there but people expect their entreés to be perfect more than appetizers and desserts.
All in all, if I was in the neighborhood and needed something sweet I'd go back. Other than that, i wouldn't go unless someone with no taste buds has a party there for the ambiance. I wouldnt recommend this place unless you like your food BLAND. And I'm leaving my full name. Im not hiding behind some nickname because im telling you the truth.

One of the best continental restaurants on LI. Duck is excellent as are all entrees. Save room for desserts including Floating Island (ouefs a la neige ) as well as the Napoleon and fruit tart.
After 30+ years as dependable as always.

Dined at La Coquille tonight for a friend's birthday. Fabulous food and excellent service. Our waiter, Giovanni, was very attentive, and even bought us a round of after-dinner liquors. Try the raw or baked oysters for an appetizer, and the rack if lamb was cooked to perfection. Old World feeling in a lovely atmosphere. I highly recommend it! We'll be back.

This being our second time and it was not nearly as good as the last time .... one meal was wrong...and our waiter insisted it is what we ordered...we did not...and we did not want to wait for a new dish, the duck was dry and salty, last time it was excellent we both ordered that..
Perhaps this was just an off night, but that should never happen at a well established place..

Honestly, for a restaurant that considers themselves classy and elegant, I expected better service. At these prices, when the waitstaff is dressed in tuxedos and they are trying to give off a high-end vibe, they should not be auctioning off the food when it comes to the table, especially when there were only two of us dining. They should know who ordered what. Ridiculous. And the waiter shouldn't ask me what we're drinking when we ask for a second round of drinks. You already wrote it down. Don't be lazy. Check what you wrote and bring us a second round. Amateurs. Checking in was a bit unorganized with no designated area to wait, and the waiter kept referring to us as "you guys" instead of sir and/or ma'am. I get it that we were probably the youngest couple in the place by 30 years so he felt he could be a bit casual with us, but it was a little rude and assuming. I'm not your friend. This is the first time I'm meeting you and I'm your customer. Address me properly. "You guys" is how I would be addressed at a fast food restaurant. The food was okay, and the room we sat in was quaint and quiet. Probably won't go back.
