My husband and I were meeting my son & his girlfriend for dinner in New Orleans. My son decided he would chose the place and upon reading the reviews of Coquette, he made reservations for us. We were seated upstairs and our service was excellent.......however, upon the arrival of our food, we were very disappointed. While the food was good,... More

The tasting menu is called a "Blind tasting" as you are putting yourself in the Chef's hands. When coupled with their recommended wine pairings, you have the makings of a memorable meal. This visit was only 4 stars as the place was packed and service suffered a touch. Previous visits were spot-on perfect. The food, however was certainly top-notch

The service is excellent. I have an allergy to pepper and asked which meals are completely without pepper. The waitress returned back and brought me a menu with the meals which may be done without pepper are marked by a chef. The roasted duck was excellent and all is served with freshly cooked bread.

This is what a special night out should feel like. The dishes are crafted with a deft hand to evoke some flavors that home cooks seldom can. The restaurant is in an historic neighborhood building with really cool architectural features like tiled floors and tall ceilings/windows. The service is super professional if a tiny bit stiff. Well-chosen wine list.

This was our first time to try Coquette. We went for lunch and were please with the food and service. The menu was a bit confusing on the 3 course lunch portion due to the fact that everything was in lower case letters with no punctuation of any kind, so it was difficult to tell where one dish started and...

Excellent food and service. I had the king salmon and the wine list was quite extensive. Worth the trip uptown for sure.

I had been underwhelmed with this place in the past but it turned things around a few months ago. It's located on Magazine Street in the lower garden district and a favorite of food industry people and foodies alike. Solid spot to hit!

OMG. We had the most amazing lunch at Coquette... and the crazy thing was, we ordered what seemed like the most simple things on the entire menu -- a tomato sandwich and a burger. We were blown away. Please go here... this restaurant is doing amazing things. If you are in a sandwich kinda mood, get the tomato sandwich. You... More

Dinner here was one of the best meals we've ever eaten - and we eat quite well and internationally. What impressed was the astonishing precision of the cooking, evident in every course, and the flair with which traditional regional dishes and local ingredients were re-imagined for the 21st century. We had the tasting menu with the wine pairing (the wines... More
