Description: 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.

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. Service was very poor as were our main courses-- garlic roasted shrimps were too tough and the veal was too sweet and over... More

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.

We ordered a simple dish, beef bourguignon.A surprise indeed,as meat was unchewable.In any other French restaurant, the meat in this dish is so tender, it flakes at the touch of a fork.Service was so-so,no one was particularly friendly,atmosphere was nothing special.We wouldn't return.

Early Sun. dinner with great wine, food, beautiful surroundings, and great waitstaff was wonderful. The best mussels and duck.... More
