    Our first time to visit Coquette. Our server as Francesca and she was amazing. She was friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and very thorough.we enjoyed talking with her about Coquette and asking for suggestions and advice. We had Coquette au Vin which was the best we ever tried and Duck Fat Fried Chicken which was very good also. We shared a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc which was great. And, for dessert, we had Cherry Clafoutis which was amazing. This as our first visit, but it won’t be our last. I highly recommend Coquette if you want delicious French food. If you go, ask for Francesca’s area.

    Fun place for a ladies brunch. We had a great time, food was amazing (oysters, Benedict, French toast), and cocktails were delicious. We had a great server but things were a little off at the end. Our server brought our bill which was all together instead of split between the 4 of us. When we asked for the split it seemed to be a big deal (has not been an issue before). We waited over 30 minutes to receive the new bill. One of my friends paid in cash and, again, it seemed to be an issue to find change. We waited an additional 20+ for this. Overall great experience but very frustrating at the end.

    Very attentive staff as service was perfect, but not intrusive. The oysters sooo tasty as well as the Brussels sprout salad and the mussels we ordered. Pace of food coming out was perfect as well. Very good crème brûlée and espresso. Overall my wife and I really enjoyed Coquette and would definitely dine here again. Oh, and very pleasantly surprised when the check arrived (reasonable).

    Great atmosphere for brunch. The natural light is wonderful. While oh sure,, we both enjoyed our food. I think it might just be that we are not used to the richness of French cuisine. We both felt uncomfortably full and unable to finish our meals. I had the baked eggs and hubby had the beef sandwich. I would definitely recommend the smoked salmon. Delicious!

    Possibly the best French restaurant in Charlotte; at least our meals were delicious and we plan to return. We had dinner at Bentley's a few days earlier and I can say the food at Coquette was more flavorful and far less expensive (Bentley's was fancier though).

    Food was incredible and decently priced for uptown Charlotte. We ordered several plates for the table to share and loved everything. My only suggestion is to help gluten free diners - our server guessed about whether dishes were gluten free, which would be pretty dangerous for someone with Celiac. Nothing is labeled on the menu.

    Surprised by flavor profiles, expertly prepared dishes. Nice decor yet cozy and comfortable chairs. Great service, they change the silverware as I dislike reusing dirty ones for different dishes. Brussel sprout salad was delicious, tuna crudo was fresh and lovely with passion fruit sauce. Fish was good and duck fat chicken so good and crispy. One of the best meals I’ve had in awhile.

    Great service and attention by the staff. Had an interesting view of the busy kitchen. Menu is interesting and food was very good. Mussels were excellent and enough for two. It is loud place making conversation difficult. We like it and would recommend Coquette and we will go back.

    What a lovely place! I would recommend. For entrance, a sign at what looks like the front door of the restaurant directed us to go through the revolving doors to the right of the restaurant and enter the lobby and then enter the restaurant doors on the left. Upon entering the restaurant, you first enter the reception area. We were greeted kindly and promptly. The restaurant is L-shape with the main dining room straight a head and the bar and bar seating to the right. The bar seating has close together 2-tops, which is ok, but you can definitely hear what the tables all around are saying and vice versa. We came around 6:30PM on a weeknight and it was business and louder than expected, not that that's a bad thing....We were immediately seated with our reservation. The wait staff and management were amazing; very friendly and nice; very service oriented. The food was excellent. The prices are on the high side. If you're a foodie, who likes French food, this restaurant is for you! I love French food and had been meaning to come for a while. We ordered an appetizer, 2 dinners, 1 dessert to share, a cappuccino and we had water with dinner and the bill was $140 for 2 people (no drinks.). We had the mushroom tart for the appetizer, the halibut and beef bourguignon for our entrees, and an absolutely delicious cherry desserts...YUM! We did see some cars parked out front and were told they validate for the parking deck in the attached building. We found parking and getting back to the car cumbersome and with a validated ticket, the machine took it as invalid and we had to press the button for customer service so they could manually raise the gate. Maybe there's also other parking that may be easier? Either way, We had a lovely time and for the food, ambiance, and people, will definitely be back!

    I consider myself a professional bruncher, 😉🥂. We went here based on Yelp/Google reviews and looking at photos on the Internet. The ambience is stunningly beautiful! The only thing I will say is that the menu is rather limited if you truly want brunch options. There’s only quiche, a few sandwiches and salads …. In other words, it’s a pretty authentic French menu. if you’re looking for things like waffles, eggs, or traditional brunch dishes, you will not be finding it here. That being said, it’s still a wonderful experience just to go and enjoy the beautiful decor, and the service was terrific as well. It’s the kind of place you go with girlfriends for mimosas - not with your manly husband, who wants more food on his plate 😆 Kind of a pricey shi-shi place, but I would visit again!

    Coquette was fantastic. I’ll be honest, I’m a pretty predictable person when it comes to a dinning experience. I always get the steak on a night out. What I like about Coquette is that it made a think outside of the box. We started with the oysters which were delicious. Now, I wouldn’t have bitched about it either way, but a good clean oyster can tell you a lot about the standard of preparation of a place. My wife and I had the cocktails flowing which of course made me a little more confident of my order of the mussels. My god, they were incredible. And that says a lot coming from a guy who oftentimes isn’t a huge fan. My wife got the chicken, also outstanding. I would 10/10 recommend this spot for a date night. Oh, and OLIVIA, our waitress: Kind, informative, charismatic, prompt, and professional. We will definitely be back and recommending to friends.

    Four of us had a lovely experience for dinner. The cocktails & food were all fantastic. Our server was Madison, and she was very knowledgeable about the menu and very nice. Appetizers: the Salmon Crudités, Croissant au Escargot, Gougère au Truffe, were very good. We also tried the smoked bone marrow and marinated olives. We had bread service at an extra cost. Entrees: The duck fat fried chicken was a nice portion, and very tender. The Coq au Vin Blanc was also delicious and tender. The brussels sprouts salad was a lovely salad to have with both chickens entrees. Sides: the Haricots Verts and Pomme Frites were authentic. Dessert: Apple Tarte Tatin was very good and unique. The tables are close, so it was noisy and difficult to have a conversation, but the food was worth it.

    Extremely loud atmosphere. Very limited menu, portion of certain dishes are very small even by French restaurant standards. Wait staff had their head in the clouds. Forgot our appetizer,oops she says, then forgott that we ordered a croissant, forgot parts of the main entree that were ordered. Never brought bread and butter. Espresso machine was broken, upon repair they never told us, so we missed out. Brought us a complimentary creme brulee that was runny and had not set. We never complained once and until after we paid, when the waitress says as she delivers the table next to us 5 espressos , "oh yeah our machine works now do you still want one". And she was offended at our dissapointment.

    The atmosphere, and the food were great at Coquette’s. The manager Michele does a great job of taking care of all the patrons. This is a great place to take clients or meet a colleague for a business lunch, as well as a great place for someone visiting Charlotte to enjoy a special meal.

    Our first time at Coquette. Brunch was good, but nothing to sing about. Eggs Mornay was good, but somewhat bland. The Omelette with green salad was very ordinary. Pomme frites were very good-- but that isn't enough to make us come again for Brunch Service and server was great- professional and well trained. They ran out of quiche-- on Sunday Brunch?? We'll try again for dinner this time-- should be better
