It was very busy, and the 2nd floor hostess said it would be at least an hour for a table. She said we could order take out at the bar, so we did. After an hour, I decided to walk out. The bartender, who barely speaks English, asked us to stay so she could have it taken care of. A... More

On the plus side, they were able to accommodate our reservation request on short notice for a large group of 12 on a busy Saturday night. The place is a huge warehouse and so it feels spacious -- the tables aren't packed together. Our waiter and the kitchen did a good job -- we got our drinks and food at... More

Wonderful menu too many delicious items to choose from. When we finally decided my husband ended up with the ox tail our daughter had the red snapper and I enjoyed the fish paella. This way we all got to sample. Too bad we are from out of state or we would come here often. We were just leaving when karaoke... More

Don Coqui is a fun place to meet friends and unwind after work. It's also a great place to celebrate. I particularly like to sit at the bar, especially during Happy Hour, and enjoy an appetizer or a full meal. The bartenders are great. The food is very good and plentiful. You won't be disappointed.

After having an unpleasant experience at Don Coqui in Astoria I was reluctant to go to the New Rochelle DC but my co-workers assured me that she visited both and the New Rochelle location was better. We arrived and was greeted and seated quickly. The place was big and airy with large windows with a beautiful view of the bay.... More

Have been twice once in New Ro and once in White Plains, loved the skirt steak, balance of the food was ok to good but both times left with a headache. Music is so loud that you have to almost shout to speak to the others and very difficult to hear them. Drinks are pretty but over priced and weak.... More

my guests (10+) and I had dinner there on a Friday night at 8PM. Although the music was good, it was a little too loud for the older (2) guests that were with me. The rest of us thought it was fine. We ordered from the party menu. Everyone loved their dish. Paella, Mofongo, peril, red snapper, and all the... More

So Don Coqui has great food; Empanadas are great, you'll want to try a few, skirt steak (with or without shrimp) is fantastic, but a bit pricey for that cut of meat. Seafood soup and Paella are both excellent, and the Mofongo is also fantastic. Overall, food is great. However, the times that I've been here, the music has been... More
