Spanish
Brought to you by Award Winning Chef Michael Chiarello and located at Pier 5 on 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.

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.

    Caution, no umbrellas available for outdoor seating. Take a sun hat and some shades. The food was very yummy as well as the ambiance, unfortunately very guest experienced long wait times for food and drinks. We ordered a bottle of champagne and our starters arrived before out drinks. Our main dish came after our starters. Servers seems to be either overwhelmed or short staffed.

    Coqueta remains a favorite of ours. The service can be at times a bit slow, and it is best experienced where one can see the Bay, for example at the bar. But the tapas and cocktails make an outstanding eating experience and we love going there.

    The food was good and reasonably priced, but the service was terrible. Hostess was very friendly and seated us right away. Once seated at the table, the server didn’t show up for at least 10-15 min later and asked if we were ready to order. Didn’t time the dishes correctly and only checked back once during the whole meal, much later. Waited another 15 min for check.

    Absolutely no focus on the customer experience. Possibly the worst service I've experienced from the host, to the waiter, to the manager. Such a shame as the food is great but I likely will not go back.

    Had an 8pm reservation. Showed up and they couldn’t seat us because it was full. Told us a few minutes. We checked back a couple of times and After 30 minutes we left because they didn’t seat us. The hostess was clueless she kept telling us we could sit at the bar. Didn’t offer to comp us a drink or anything. Poor customer service. Wont be going back because a reservation doesn’t mean anything.

    This is my fourth visit to this restaurant. The last time I had lunch about 3 weeks ago the service was a lot better. The server I had this visit was not at all attentive. I had to call him several times to follow up our orders. I noticed other tables who came after we did were served more quickly the same dishes. When he did come there was not much follow up. The food too was a bit better than previous visits. The paella was still very good. The coquettes were not as tasty and the lamb meatballs were bland. Overall experience was not good especially for the price.

    I have been to Coqueta several times and have loved the experience. I took a friend there and was terribly disappointed. My seat was broken… like I fell in to a hole in a booth. Our order was seriously delayed. Everyone around us that came in after got served but our did better came until we asked. Then they had the audacity to say the kitchen was backed up. Uh… no. At least we had one drink comped. I’ll be hard pressed to go back. Unfortunate since the food is actually really good.

    For a nice restaurant in SF that’s next to the water in a busy tourist area, you should be able to afford consistent heating especially if majority of your seats are outdoors. Many customers were freezing while eating and only a few of their heaters were working. The food was good. Its a bit pricey, but I wouldn’t mind paying that if atmosphere was perfect.

    The worst service i have had in years. The food was fine, nothing remarkable. The price high and the portions small. Views were lovely. Service was abysmal. We were seated outside and not near a heater. We asked to be moved to a table closer to a heater but was told it wasn’t available. Shortly after, others were seated at that table. We asked for a heater to be moved nearer to our table. We were told it would happen. 15 requests and 30 minutes later, still no heater. Eventually, we moved tables. Out food was served backwards: main course, then appetizers, then bread. We couldn’t get a server’s attention for anything. No drinks, no dessert. We finally gave up and asked for the bill. 30 minutes later, we walked in and paid at the front desk. When we complained, the hostess simply stated they were busy with a private party. There are too many better options. Don’t waste your time here
