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.

Everything was terrific, however it was a bit loud and service staff didn’t show up for longer than normal periods of time. Still one of my favorite restaurants in the city.

We had a wonderful time at Coqueta. The staff was very attentive and ready to answer all our questions. It was my husband's birthday and they put a little candle on the dessert tray and wished him happy birthday. Just one example of the many things that make our lunch there special. The food was outstanding. The rosted eggplant and smoked salmon were our absolute favorites.

Coqueta has a nice set up for outdoor dining which we preferred. We had a lovely lunch with plenty of choices on the menu to satisfy a diverse palate. The octopus is a favorite, the kale salad will not disappoint and many more amazing tidbits and plates. Service was attentive and made great recommendations. Enjoy!

Beautiful decor and location.

Service was slow and seemed distracted.

Food was good except for the shrimp and potato straws dish (can’t recall the tapas name). That was the most pitiful plate for a upscale restaurant. Small shrimp, not fresh at all (think frozen grocery), mixed with oil/seasoning and potato straws. Not good in any regard.

Would probably eat there again, but not a given.

The The wait staff kept forgetting our orders. It took more than 20 minutes just to get bread. They brought the first appetizer rather quickly. The second one did not show up and after more than a half an hour we asked for the check and left. It was a big disappointment.

Everything was delicious. The pacing of the arrival of our dishes was perfect. We had datiles, patatas bravas, albondigas, and mar y montana paella. I highly recommend Coqueta for a nice celebration.

This was a very disappointing experience. We had been looking forward to dining there. From the approach to the entrance as we arrived for our reservation, there was sense of indifference from the staff. The hostess was very polite and accommodating as to seating arrangements. That was pleasing. However, we waited for at least 7 minutes for any attention from the wait staff-- although there were many present in the room and there was only one other dining couple in the room. We finally caught the glance of a staff person. He kindly asked if we needed anything. Since he was only on his second day there he was unable to answer certain quick questions, but brought us samples of two wines. Several minutes later, our waiter finally arrived to take orders of wine, appetizers and main courses. The Jamón Ibérico de Bellota at $29 was underwhelming and a very small portion, Patatas Bravas were a good value with a tasty sauce. The alleged sea bass, Lubina de Mar, was as thin as a trout and the Paella Mar y Montaña was not well-seasoned, the four prawns were rubbery and tasteless, we had to ask for seasoning. Also, we had asked and they agreed to prepare the sea bass as it was described in the online menu with cara cara oranges, but when it arrived it was not to be. Nearly at the end, we had to remind the waiter that an order had not come out from the kitchen. By the time it arrived we had practically finished and were ready to exit the scene of the crime. Crime? Yes, it was a $260 for two rip off. The sangria was interesting and also overpriced, at $12 for 8oz. We will pass this one by next time. Maybe only for ambience, drinks and a couple of tapas, but not a meal.

Iberico pork shoulder was outstanding! The egg and chorizo dish just so so. Lamb meatballs very good. Patatas bravos need to be creamier on inside and crispier on outside. They were slightly underdone.

I recommend Coqueta in spite of the difficulties on my last visit. Service was poor. Food was good. I prefer the indoor dining - the tent outside does not appeal to me at all. Music was what I think is Spanish rap, loud & endless loop of words. Hopefully on my next visit there will improvements. I have been dining at Coqueta from the first month that it opened & hope to enjoy the interesting food that the chef prepares.

the crispy calamari was great alternative to the single tapas version fior two. Fresh and delicious. Served with ink aioli. Nice touch. The main meal, paella was very mediocre. Nice location ! Waitress nice but literally asked us but feed server to move around our glasses and plates to accommodate paella plate.... they should one before and set table up instead if grunting , “Move your glass “. Also, we were buying a bottle if wine, told waitress and we asked to taste first. She fought one of us a tiny glass with the rubies for tastes and we had to share it, luckily we were both vaccinated and willing to. That was very “cheap” especially since we were buying it at 58 dollars a bottle ..

We’ve been going for years & yesterday’s experience was the worst. We were seated under the plastic tent under the sun even though I asked for shade. We were told we had the table for 2 hrs. and it took a really long time for someone to greet us & take our drink order, then we waited a long time for the drinks to come. Then we waited even longer to get the starters (olives/almonds). Finally a different server came to take our food order, we told him we’ve been waiting a long time & we originally had another server, he apologized & said there was some confusion - I’ll say!! The crew was nice & polite but whoever’s managing the restaurant should be fired because Coqueta’s better than this, it really was amateur hour. Then they decided to open up the tents with 20 mph winds so that was pretty dumb & further killed the dining experience. I’ll be boycotting this place for a while until they get their act together. Foid was superb as always but service was terrible!

This is our second time here. This time, we decided to try the Paella Valenciana and it did not disappoint! Everything else was delicious as well. Next time, we plan on trying the ribeye if we get a couple more family members with us. And we got the same server, Marco, as the first time. He was friendly and attentive!

Although the food was good, the service was below my basic expectations.
My main arrived before the starter, which wasn’t great.
I’ve ordered a dessert, but was waiting for it so long that I had to cancel it. Once I informed the waiter to cancel it, he brought it. Too late.
But even though I wasn’t totally happy, I would come back.
