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.

Great dining experience. Welcoming and helpful staff and delicious food. My favourite item was the Bikini and Sunny side huevo, but everything we ordered was really good. Their sangria is amazing and much better value than the cocktails. Give it a try!

What a fantastic brunch or dinner spot. I happened to be there for Brunch last week and it was fabulous in every way. Great cocktails, great food - with healthier, sharable tapas. Can't say enough good things. Would go back here anytime.

It was our first dinner back from an amazing and the restaurant made us feel like we were back on vacation. Amazing dishes. The bikini (brioche a la pancha with eggplant, goat cheese, and jalea) was spectacular.

We waited for the Paella more than 40mins. We know that we need to wait for 30-40mins. Morethan 40mins is to much

We spent Valentines Day here celebrating the special day and this place did not disappoint! Our server was very personable and attentive throughout the evening. He even got the chef to sign / date our empty bottle o vino. We loved the food (we had the Paella) and the ambiance and will definitely return when we’re in town.

Definitely best with groups who like to share and experiment with amazing food. And the service was beyond exceptional. Our waiter asked us what flavors we preferred and how spicy we wanted our food. He not only made what were the best suggestions, but brought them so the presentation and the Flavors all melded together excellently. I would definitely return in the future when I’m in the area.

From beginning to end our experience was amazing. Our host Cinder was very helpful and definitely made the experience a great one. The manager even came out to great us and share a couple of words before departing. Everything about this experience was amazing and even better than I’d hoped. The Paella was better than the one I had in Madrid. I was skeptical at first but so glad I was wrong. I get hungry just thinking about that dish.

We love their tapas, so many different taste treats in one meal. The servers are great too. They have that balance between being attentive but not rushing you. We have been there lots of times and we have always had a good experience.

My 3rd time to Coqueta, and was a bit of a disappointment this time. I was there for lunch day after New Years with friends. Possibly the regular chef was off, the tapas were quite average, albondigas a bit on the salty side but tasty, kale salad was unfortunately boring - could use more figs and pistachos to give it a richer texture and flavor profile, patatas brava was pretty much flat except for the dipping sauce, without which you are basically just eating a mouthful of deep fried potatoes. The paella was very tasty, though seafood was a bit thin, the socarrat was definitely a miss - i.e. not there. Service was good, though the waiter was hard to find once the restaurant filled up, but everyone was very friendly. Lunch with tips (only 3 of us with 3 cocktails) was $150, which I thought was a lot considering we only had tapas and only 1 main course - the paella. I do think this was an off day for the restaurant, I will give them a pass, and try again, hopefully, it was just a holiday mishap.

Christmas Eve dinner- Fabulous! I love this place and come often when visiting the city. Wasn’t crazy busy so noise level and energy was perfect! The staff were all fun and we appreciated that they were so social and happy! The bartenders had fun showing off their cocktail crafting and made for a really fun wait for our table.

The food is always prepared perfectly and presented beautifully. The sharing option is a great way to nosh throughout the evening with an easy and un-rushed experience!

Went for the paella and it was just ok. Definitely did not have the crispy bottom and the amount of seafood was weak. Service was great and the 2 tapas we had were very good (Brussels and smoke salmon)

Reading the 8 reviews below this one look like the same person and same writing style. Interesting enough, they all have such wonderful things to say..

The good: the wine selection was very good.

The bad: I don’t think it would be possible to make the food portions any smaller than they were. We ordered so many plates, which were tasty and unique. But it is always a bad sign when one feels like driving thru jack in the box on the way home because you are still hungry. My mistake was going to the gym before sitting down to eat here.

Service was absent most of the time. Staff was spread thin throughout the place. And the room volume was on the loud side.
