Classic Feench

My husband and I were here thirty three years ago. Duck a l'orange and onion soup were excellent. Prices are not cheap, but portions were generous.

We discovered this restaurant and decided to try it for our milestone anniversary. It was indeed special. The ambiance was lovely and there were great French offerings. We didn't think the price was high for a restaurant of this type on Long Island. Everything we ate was delish and prepared well! The only negative comment was that the service could... More

Wondering if you can find a delish restaurant in Long Island where there's so many steak houses and Italian eateries? Yes! This restaurant does it old-school and the food serves up classics like Duck O'lorange, escargots, sauteed Frog Legs, French onion soup...etc. My favorite is their souflee. You can get it Chocolate, Gran Mariner, or French Vanilla...for two $24. I... More

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
