La Coquille strives to offer a comfortable atmosphere where people can come to enjoy each other, as well as the pleasure of foods grown locally and prepared with exacting care. Nothing frozen, no cellophane, no mass-market products. Today, the only place I can think of that even remotely works like my grandfather's kitchen, is our kitchen at La Coquille. We are working with locally-grown produce and meats, and using recipes that are classics, but with a twist, or a new interpretation to keep things interesting.

Over priced and nasty management

This local place has been around a long time. The food is OK, not what you would expect for the cost. Don't bother complaining about anything. All you will get is a sneer.

This is a very fine classic French Restaurant. The service is also classic and very good. It is an elegant, small restaurant. I was there for a special birthday dinner and it did not disappoint. I had the pate for an appetizer and the veal with lemon for my main course. For dessert I tried the floating island which was... More

We had always heard great things about this restaurant and are very glad we finally tried it for our 30th anniversary last week. The restaurant itself is very elegant, but small with a relatively quiet and intimate setting. For appetizers, we chose Chicken Liver Pâté and the French onion soup. Both were very good. As the main course, my husband... More

We had a large party, so we had the back room to ourselves. The wait staff was very attentive at all times. The dinner started with crusty French bread and a tomatoe tampade (delicious). The apps were some of the best ever; crabmeat , shrimp, and I had the French onion soup. We had the duck for our main meal,... More

We were very excited to go to La Coquille for our anniversary. Unfortunately, we were extremely disappointed with the service and the food. It was a Saturday night and we had a reservation. We were seated quickly, but then it took a half hour for the waiter to come to the table. We ordered a cocktail and ordered a soufflé... More

We had made this restaurant our regular go to French place, particularly for their Bastille Day special menu. The food is always very good, we often get the Long Island duck, escargot and whatever seafood dish sounds good that day. The restaurant used to be relatively dark and I guess what some may call cozy. But new management created a... More

We have had been to this restaurant several times over last 30 years, not recently, though.The ambiance was very good, and the noise level in the back room was low.The lobster bisque and sald were very good.

Felt like we were back in Paris. Restaurant is run by a very nice French man who came out to greet us and describe the evening's specials. The food was very nicely prepared.
