Exquisite dinner

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... read 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

Give yourself time to enjoy this gem. You will be glad you did. Owned by a delightful husband/wife team (she's the chef), the food is exquisite. The fois gras was a surprise and over the top. The halibut - cooked to perfection - done but moist. You probably cannot find anything on the menu not to like, but if I... More

My wife and I visited Ashland recently and stayed at Chakra Gardens, a delightful walk from the OSF. Since we had foresworn the use of the car during our stay we needed to find dining options close to downtown. Coquina appeared on our radar and looked like a good bet. So we wandered to it after our afternoon play, taking... More

The scallops were caramelized perfectly! Coquina has a nice calm venue & great food. Two of us shared the incredible chocolate desert, it was rich & thick but not too sweet. We'll be back!
