Flavor so fine you will swear you never want to eat anywhere else

Loved, loved, loved the tastes and ambience of Coquina. This restaurant is a sweet secret in a town known for good dining. Given that mega tourists come here to attend the Shakespeare Festival and eat out, Coquina is a refreshing alternative. Located in a quiet neighborhood, an old... read more

one of the best, most innovative in Ashland. Setting is intimate and we had a quiet table overlooking the courtyard. Service was good and the food was excellent- creative, local and well prepared.

My family and I dined at Coquina during our recent trip to Ashland. The experience was pitch perfect from start to finish and the best meal we have had in ages. We had the good fortune to have Daniel as our waiter (who turned out to be a co-owner). He provided us with elegant yet thoroughly relaxed service and gave... More

This was my third visit to Coquina. Each time was good, but dinner last night motivated me to type out a review. This is a small place, simply but cleanly designed, run by a husband and wife team. Lynn, the wife and chef, produces works of art, both visually and for the taste. I began with a beet salad that... More

Ashland is noted for their theatre -3 venues a day covering Shakespeare, Classic and Contemporary plays. But it is also becoming a Mecca for good restaurants. Coquina is a fine example of one that has we had missed previously. It's off the town center by a few streets and actually in a residential area. We started with the Cheese Tart...Sounds... More

Celebrated my wife's birthday and I must say that we were blown away about the quality of food served at this small restaurant. The service was excellent and Coqina is a place we will dine at again.

My partner and I were impressed with them many taste and textures of our food. We shared the meal so we could try more things. The owner was waiting our table and his wife is the chef. They both have an amazing knowledge of food combinations. We started with the cheese tart and it melted in our mouths. The beet... More

Weird vibe upon entry. Only 2 people seemingly working the whole place...seemed to ignore us. Maybe it's because we are from California???

This restaurant has the best food in town and it’s not really close. We are Ashland residents and dine out 10-14 days a month. Since it opened about three years ago, my wife and I have eaten at Coquina eight to 10 times (we would have gone more often had prices been lower). We believe the most important element of... More

No missed steps at this fine little place! The server was friendly, the owner was very helpful and informative, and the food was delicious. Four of us shared an order of the Brussels sprout chips and split a beet salad and a savory cheese tart. Everything we ordered was beautifully presented and had layers of interesting flavors. The portion of... More
