I had the highest hopes for this experience. The restaurant is in a beautiful location and has a very inviting curb appeal. I quickly learned looks are deceiving. I will begin with the highlight: I came in for brunch. The hostess and bus boys/girls are clearly on point. There was one gentlemen with locs who was so pleasant. I ordered... More

If you like the Pim's Cup, you'll love the Gnome Cup! After touring the Garden District, we had worked up a substantial appetite, but also needed to cool off. The Gnome Cup was the ticket! A surprising upgrade to the Pimm's cup masterfully crafted in front of us while we perused our lunch options. Fantastic three-course brunch for under 25... More

One of the bartenders was genuinely thrilled that we were there on our first night. He gave us several suggestions of other places to try and recommendations for our dinner there. It was a great introduction to the city. His advice was even if we liked the food to go to a different place every time we ate. We did... More

Absolutely everything we had was spectacular, including the service. I strongly recommend going to Coquette if you love a great meal experience. (Sure, for those who are on a budget, it is a little bit more expensive that your average restaurant but worth so much more).

Another uptown winner. Make reservations and be prepared for a delightful dinning experience. Inside there is a single row of tables positioned to allow easy server access and a private intimate dinning environment. The service was top notch. Listen to the server for recommendations. The menu changes daily to include the best of local fare available. Presentation is mouth watering.... More

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...
