We dined at a new restaurant, during a visit to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, somewhat off Main Street, La Coquina, with an eclectic menu and a half local wine list. I had a pea shoot and hazelnut salad as a starter and a huge bowl of gnocchi with a sauce made of Kobe beef and chopped pork bolognesi. I coupled... More

This was an amazing experience. The food was delicious and the menu creative. Everything was good. The bread you get before the meal was crunchy yet sift with a hint of salt and garlic. I would recommend the beet and mushroom salad, gnocchi and the pea leaf salad was definitely the coolest thing I have ever tried.

As residents of Ashland, we try to eat in as many restaurants as possible (there are so many!).....and we always seem to end up here for special nights. Whether it's having an incredible meal, a quick drink and app before the film festival or celebrating a milestone, we just LOVE this place. The owner and his wife are absolutely incredible,... More

We had a lovely evening at this little restaurant-a beautiful find in Ashland and away from the crowds which we appreciated. The staff were excellent from the hostess, our waiter(s), a fabulous bus gal and the owner all seemed to take their time to answer our questions and deliver an exquisite meal. We had the crab and avocado salad special... More

Our group of 8 had a spectacular dinner at Coquina - pleasing everyone, even those who had a very bad (service too slow) experience 2 years ago and were prepared to dislike it. My husband characterized his foie gras appetizer as a taste adventure - he kept finding small bits of this or that on the plate, each enlivening and... More

Dined here before the theater, asked for the patio as it was a warm evening. Very nice little garden, service just as good as inside. I had a very interesting small pot of custard Vichyssoise , more solid than the soup but same flavor. Topped with micro greens & sautéed , shallots, it was. Relative & tasty. I had another... More

This restaurant and its staff rock. All good -- the brussel sprouts are the best I have eaten, ever!

After reading several reviews we walked over to the restaurant to make a reservation and see what might be in store for vegetarians. There were several starters and one entree that looked promising so we returned the next night for the best dinner we've ever had in Ashland. Everything "worked". The waiter/owner suggested a menu for us leaving the pork... More

I am in charge of selecting restaurants for a group of foodie friends who meet annually for the Ashland Shakespeare Festival - a big responsibility for sure. This year I made reservations for our group of 8 at Coquina - a restaurant none of us had ever tried before. Well - it was a big hit all around. Everyone loved... More

My wife spotted this place last year on our annual trip to the Shakespeare Festival. We didn't go last year, but went with six friends from the Bay Area this year. The soups are out of this world. The quail stuffed with foie gras was superb. Others had a pistachio crusted halibut which they described as superior. Desserts were all... More
