COQUETA - San Francisco
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.
This is my third visit to this restaurant;each time it gets progressively a little worse for the wear; nothing wows me like the first time; everything is consistently tasty but just doesnt have that little something, something. It never seems like the menu selections change and this always puts me in a rut; with such an extensive menu, nothing just pops!
Johnny the waiter was outstanding and the food was delicious.
Fun place but loud. Octopus is outstanding! Took awhile to get our waiter to serve us, but he was very attentive and helpful once he finally arrived
We love Coqueta for a taste of authentic Spanish cuisine in a vibrant dining space, most often crowded and lively. Having come to the restaurant since its opening, we've noticed that food portions have been reduced in ways that make the plates feel a little skimpy now, particularly for the price. Another complaint is that, because it's often crowded, service can be a little slow. Nevertheless, we love the food and come here a few times a year to get our "fix" of jamon, pan de tomate, pimientos de Padron, gambas and more!
My husband and I hadn’t gone on a dinner date for some time due to a busy summer of travel and camps for our 5 year old. We thoroughly enjoyed every appetizer /tapa, entree and dessert ordered from the lamb meatballs, out of this world grilled octopus, tasty seasoned kale salad, grilled pork entree to perfection and how can we forget the machego cheesecake bites! Our server Stephanie was attentive, informative and absolutely charming. We will return again soon!
Service was great and the food was good.
It was incredible and the food was fantastic
Amazing food but small portions!
After marking in OpenTable that I made the reservation to celebrate a birthday, we were greeted with a warm welcome asking to “be done within the next 95 min to flip the table.”
The pressure continued to rise as we waited at least 10 minutes to place an order for food, as our server was clearly over-seated. When our food was delayed coming out, our server explained that delay was our fault: the kitchen had “freaked out” about our MILD peanut allergy.
While there was a manager working the floor, not once did he check in.
Sure, the food was good. And yes, we escaped within our allotted time frame. But from a value and experience perspective you (yes you, future guest!) can and should do better on the Embarcadero and generally in SF.
Coqueta never disappoints -- we enjoyed a delightful lunch consisting of a variety tapas, which were all very tasty and well prepared.
Excellent always good and always fun. Servers are great!!
Barock our server was outstanding. Attention friendly knowledgeable.
Great tapas dinner and genuine Jamon Iberico! Small place but lovely location.
CAVEAT: the map link on OpenTable takes you to location 1.2 miles away. DONT RELY ON THE LINK
Best place, best food, and great service. Can't get enough
Horrible service and the food was extremely average. The only reason I would come back is for the ambiance and drinks!
The food and beverages were fantastic and the wait staff was awesome. They made several suggestions that enhanced our dining experience. And they knew when to check-in!
Food and service excellent. Not giving 5 because they couldn't seat us for 30 min after our reservation time so we got stuck in the bar for the entire dinner.
We love this restaurant! The food is amazing and consistently delicious. The service and cocktails are also really good and we enjoy having dinner here.
Waiter disappeared for too long during lunch.
Excellent service. Loved the choices for tapas. We had five different dishes to share and loved them all. Our server was extremely knowledgeable about the Spanish wines. Love the decor of the restaurant. Can’t wait to go back!
Restaurant list our reservations and we had to wait long time
Outstanding small bites with many options to satisfy any taste. Gorgeous setting. Service was A+. Just be aware that like sushi, you can total up a large bill while enjoying small bites.
Always a fantastic experience!
Lovely tapas menu with good flavors and presentation. Great for those sharing food and who like to share. Well made drinks, delicious food, fantastic service.
Excellent service and drinks!
Great food, drinks, and service. We had to wait 20-30 minutes even though we had reservations.
Excellent experience with Chiarello's wonderfrul take on Spanish Tapas. Every dish was delicious, creative and beautifully done. Bravo Chiarello!!!
Amazing cocktails! Loved the Sutter Smash and my wife fell in love with the Salt air margarita . And the Tapas were excellent from the cheese board to the Mar y Montagne, the plat cap queso, to the octopus and the patatas bravas! All were excellent . Plan to visit again soon!
Really enjoyed it.
It is more of tapas so if you are very hungry you would need to order a lot and the price is not cheap
But fairly pricy
Food and drink were incredible. We were a three person party seated at a two person table and crammed against the server station and right on top of another couple. If we had any space it would have been wonderful!!
Nicole that was our waitress and she was a literal rockstar.
I would return to your establishment simply because she waited on us. She is an exemplary employee and should be recognized as such. And your food was really good too.
She was our waitress a few months ago and remembered our entire order in our second visit. Amazing service
One of the most fun meals I’ve ever had bc of her.
Kudos to her! And your fabulous restaurant.

Love going to Coqueta whenever I am in the cit. I have taken my co workers there on Friday and they loved the food as well.
Great food and great service. And a nice wine list and cocktail menu as well.
The food, service and overall experience is very nice. Great wine selection.
I didn’t get a chance to try more items. We will definitely come back
Not a lot of space between people. Felt like we were on top of the people next to us. Food was good except the portions were extremely small and very over priced. I know it’s a tapas place, but the portion size was beyond small.
