“Great local eatery”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

This is a great neighborhood restaurant with food that is every bit as good as the Commanders Palace, and great desserts that my wife could not resist. Everyone going to New Orleans should give this place a try in the Garden District. Right on Magazine St. so easy to get to. Ate there twice in the six days spent in NOLA. Also have art from Bill Hemmerling, great stuff and discovered his gallery in the French Quarter.

“Always a really nice dining experience!!!”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

The delicious shrimp and grits, the divine, juicy soft shell crab sandwich, the crispy powder sugar coated funnel cake with strawberries, the spicy bloody marys fulled to the brim with olives and green beans .... need I say more??? Oh yea THE hands down best fries.. Thin cut and crispy and very fresh and you get a pile of them.

The prices here are so reasonable for what you get. They have small plates and large plates so you get just enough. One of my favorite in the city. Very consistently delicious!!!
The basket filled with hot slices of french bread and soft butter is pretty amazing too!!

“Amazing Service, Very Good Food, Fabulous Wine, Moderate Value”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

My husband and I dined at Coquette in mid-May and ordered the five-course tasting menu for $70 (a tad overpriced) with the wine pairing for $35 (definitely worthwhile). We started with the market salad (beautiful presentation, but forgettable) followed by the sweatbreads (light with great flavors.) The halibut course was our favorite (perfectly prepared and seasoned) followed closely by the duck (the collards were perfect.) Dessert was lemon (decent but also forgettable.) Finally, the service was amazing, the best of our trip. We would probably have given Coquette an excellent review if the salad and dessert were better by comparison, and if we felt the value was better. The website still lists two tasting menu options: a 4 course for $50 and 7 course for $75, and has for weeks. We know the menu is subject to change, but we felt this was slightly deceptive. We would return however, we would probably avoid the tasting menu.

“Too eccentric and expensive”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

We were on Magazine St. and looking for a nice meal. Coquette is very small, and it seems to be a little pretentious. I understand that the menu changes every night to serve local food, but it's like it goes out of it's way to be different. My husband had fried catfish, and I had shrimp and grits. We also shared a bottle of wine and a dessert (bacon ice cream and bourbon bubbles!). I was over $100. The server was nice, but the dinner took forever. And the bacon ice cream was not bad, but I don't want it again.

“Worst customer service”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

We haven't eaten at Coquette. We had reservations for July. But today, the restaurant sent us an email canceling our reservation. We called and Tiffany the manager said they were "sorry for the inconvience." Really? If this place cared one bit or had any sense if customer service, they should have said: if you can join us another day, we'd comp you one of your meals...or maybe say you'd comp an appetizer or maybe say something that actually demonstrates that you really are apologetic for the inconvenience. THAT is customer service.
