Spanish
Brought to you by Award Winning Chef Michael Chiarello and located at Pier 5 on the the bustling San Francisco Waterfront, Coqueta is inspired by the cuisines of Spain. Chef Chiarello feels that Spain"s signature ‘small plates’ coupled with the social vibrancy of their dining scene is the perfect combination for San Francisco, which has its own deep-rooted history with the country. Focusing on regional dishes from Madrid, Catalonia, the Basque Country and beyond, the menu will feature Chiarello's interpretation of traditional Spanish cuisine and, as has always been his tradition, will highlight the bounty of fresh, local ingredients from land and sea.

NEW: Coqueta Napa Valley located in Yountville.
Coqueta means “flirt” or “infatuation” in Spanish, and represents Michael Chiarello and his team’s exploration and interpretation of Spanish Cuisine, wine and inspired cocktails, while highlighting the bounty of Northern California.

Another incredible experience at Coqueta. As always, the food and service were outstanding. New tent makes outdoor dining even more pleasant while still giving plenty of fresh air to all patrons. Will definitely be back soon.

The food was fantastic as always - the pork shoulder, croquetas (always a must have), the duck/pork meatballs, and the smoked potatoes were the stand outs. Tables were nicely spaced out for Covid considerations, more than 6' between, which is rare to find. Service was attentive as usual.

food is always good - this time the wait between courses was sometimes 15-20 minutes which is not reasonable for a business lunch.

Coqueta is a fabulous restaurant. The Manager Harry Tanielian was really friendly and helpful. They have created a truly European atmosphere with an indoor /outdoor space. We enjoyed great views of the the bay, excellent food, and great service.

I love the food at Coqueta. My only issue was that we weren't made aware before arrival that they didn't have the permits to use heat lamps in their outdoor dining tent yet. As a result, the eating experience was very much overshadowed by the 50 degrees, windy weather. Either dress for winter conditions with the expectation that there will be no heat lamps for now, or reschedule for a later date.

We were a group of 6 and we got seated with some delay, but the host made sure that we were taken care of offering us appetizers and aperitif drinks. Once seated we got some unexpected and very welcoming extra care. The service has been impeccable.
The best pairing for the perfect service is amazing food. Highly recommend the whole range of tapas and paellas. If you have space, go also for the steak!
We will be back!

Service was a little slow and I complained to the manager and he was kinda rude on his explanation. He ended up giving us 20% discount which it’s fine but all we really wanted was a simple apology. Not so sure why it was so hard to just say sorry instead of making excuses and discounting our bill.

We've been to Coqueta many many times, both to the San Francisco location and the Yountville location. We had previously visited the Yountville location during the pandemic, but this was our first time visiting the San Francisco location since they re-opened during the pandemic. WOW what happened!?! The food was nowhere near their usual, very very disappointed. We ordered:
1) grilled octopus - was burnt, chewy, dry
2) croquetas - were not really croquetas, but some mush deep fried, didn't have the usual breading and the filling was not grounded.
3) patatas bravas - oily, but were the best of the day
4) shrimp - served in a soup of oil & sauce
5) pluma - was ok, smaller serving than usual but tasty.
7) Flan - dessert was good.
Wine selection smaller than prior.
