Refined spot open since 1969 features French cuisine & Old-World ambience, plus a separate lounge.- Google
"Tuna tartar "Japanois" has the same quality of perfect balance."
"We plan to go back soon and try the short ribs and apple tart for dessert."

This was absolutely one of the WORST meals I have had in awhile with over a $600 bill with a party of 7. I would avoid the restaurant at all costs because it was quite terrible. Let me go further into detail. The Food: the escargot was terrible. Tasted like rubber. The French onion soup was salty and after tasting the "French" onion soup at a French restaurant - I knew this would go down hill fast. The rack of lamb was barely medium rare as I asked for and I could have made better lamb chops than La Coquille did! Trust me. As for the other entrees that my table had - it lacked taste and was dry. Half the table had Salmon - and it was dry as I couldn't even swallow it without having water. My Jack and Coke was mediocre - I had better. Lastly, the dessert. I had a creme brûlée which was terrible. I stress again, how does a French restaurant serve garbage? My girlfriend next to me just elaborated how disgusting her fruit tart was which consisted of mushy fruit and mediocre whipping/custard. The Service: The waiter was nice and tried to crack some jokes - which weren't funny, but hey, he tried. The wait staff could have been more attentive. This doesn't earn any extra stars in my Yelp Book! The Atmosphere: Nothing remarkable. An open room with tables and the front entrance had a bar side to its right. I will make ONE note that stuck with me the whole night - Seems like La Coquille lets anyone in these days. A mother, father, and daughter came in wearing t shirts, ripped jeans, and sneakers. The daughter was playing on her tablet during dinner. Upscale place? Absolutely not if they let people like this in to an "Upscale French Restaurant." I don't care what race you are - Have some respect and dress up for nice places. What makes you different from all the others that abide by dress code? If you can afford to eat at a place like this - buy some slacks, a dress, a pair of dress shoes, heels, whatever. Furthermore, take the damn tablet out of your kids hand and learn to be parents! Have some respect for your fellow patrons! Overall: I'll keep this short. Do not come to La Coquille unless you want to break the bank and leave with a terrible dining experience. I would give this place 0 stars if I was allowed too! STAY AWAY. There are far better restaurants on Long Island than to be eating at a place like this. Check my reviews - you'll see and thank me.

I've eaten at La Coquille 3 times. The first 2 were verrry good. The third and most recent visit was extraordinary!!! My husband and I typically eat salad or tuna tartar wherever we dine so I feel qualified to rave about these 2 appetizers here. Each bite of salad was a perfect combination of ingredients. No need to ask for dressing on the side as they know how little will emulsify over the greens without leaving a puddle at the bottom of your plate. Tuna tartar "Japanois" has the same quality of perfect balance. The Branzino was the best ever; the flavor and FRESHNESS is something that still lingers with me. Our friends had escargot and artichoke for appetizers and duck, steak, and mushroom ravioli for entrees. We all licked our plate clean; something I'm not proud to share but truth be told, well deserved!!! Looking forward to returning soon!

Always a fantastic time- Giovanni and staff exemplify the "experience" of fine dining. Food is consistently expertly presented.

My wife and I decided to give this restaurant a try for our 3 year anniversary. We were seated in a small intimate room with a fire place illuminated by candles. The floor was stone, and the ceiling was high and beautiful. We said that this was the perfect place to celebrate our anniversary. The half chicken was succulent and my taste buds were in heaven. The service was excellent and friendly. We plan to go back soon and try the short ribs and apple tart for dessert.

1. Had a reservation for 8:15, wasn't seated until 8:45; no one offered to sit us at the bar, offer us an appetizer, etc. I had to ask 3x how long it was going to take, and each time the hostess said "You're table is being set up". 2. The service sucks. Waiter was disengaged and SLOW; he actually asked if we were ready to order drinks and food without giving us a menu. After the meal, he didn't give the dessert menu before asking if we wanted dessert. Was I supposed to know what they offer and the specials magically?? Not once was my water refilled, or was I asked if I wanted another drink. 3. Food was decent, nothing spectacular. For the price, I'd rather go to a proper French place in NYC.
