A meal to remember in a GOOD way

First time at this lovely, quiet restaurant and we will be back again soon! Both of us had their amazing beet salad with warm gorgonzola ...truly delicious and an unusual take on what many restaurants try to do and fail. But the piece d resistance was the fresh halibut.

This is a small restaurant in a residential area just off of downtown. Well worth looking for. Small menu, big flavor. The beet salad was raved about in other reviews - and deservedly so. My husband had the cheese tart, which was also outstanding. His halibut was the best I've ever tasted. My scallops were wonderful. Service was great. I... More

the whole meal was excellent but the beet salad blew me away-a combination of beets, gourmet mushrooms and bacon made for a taste that was out of this world - will definitely return

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 railroad/industrial part of town now refurbished and trendy, it's a short walk... 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
