Enjoyable dinner

Enjoyed a nice, but not great dinner here. Pleasant atmosphere, good service, but felt that the menu was slightly overpriced. The charcuterie plate was good and meant to share, but pricey at $24.00.

Had Sunday brunch here during Mardi Gras - $70 for two (with one drink, $25 each for 3 courses). was a little disappointed in second course selections - only fried catfish (so delicate and light it didn't seem fried) or scrambled eggs with bacon. expected more. But, it was all good food and service was good. Got us out to... More

My wife and I have always enjoyed this French bistro. They are one of the few good restaurants open on Sunday nights. We brought our friends from S. California here and they thoroughly enjoyed their meals.

The chef's blind tasting was the single best meal the three of us had ever had. The tastes were fabulous!

I was in New Orleans on business and had a free evening. My niece had recommended Coquette and I went by myself for dinner. I had the most delightful evening and the most delicious dinner. I sat at the bar, enjoyed the flounder crudo, chatted with the couple next to me as well as the bartender. Everything was perfect. They... More

It was our first visit to Coquette but we decided to put ourselves in the chefs hands and chose the 5-course blind tasting menu $70 with 'optional' wine pairing ($30 extra and well worth it) and were absolutely blown away by everything. Firstly, the food was phenomenal. Everything we ate was so creative, unique, perfectly portioned, beautifully presented and totally... More

My husband and I plan our trips around food, and New Orleans has no shortage of good food. But, Coquette was our favorite restaurant after trying everything from a formal dining experience at August, to dives (Coops) and Killer Poboys behind a bar. Coquette's food is comforting and approachable, while being super elegant, modern and refined. It's beautiful but also... More

Truly a wonderful experience. My husband and I were recommended this place by the concierge at the Ritz. Great location in the Garden district and beautiful bar and restaurant. The servers were very knowledgeable about the menu and more than happy to describe the passion that goes into their food. I am a vegetarian and my husband a carnivore -... More

Given the number of positive reviews, this restaurant was a huge disappointment. On the positive side, the dining room is attractive the cocktails were imaginative and the desserts quite good. These bright spots, however, were not enough to counterbalance the generally mediocre food (the pork dish tasted like an average choucroute garni, the fish arrived cold after a long wait... More

My husband and I fully enjoyed our evening at Coquette - it was absolutely lovely. Took the St. Charles Street Car line from the French Quarter to Washington Street and then walked about four blocks to Magazine Street. We arrived a bit early and enjoyed delicious cocktails at the bar, even making some new friends :-)! Restaurant has a hip... More
