Spanish
Brought to you by Award Winning Chef Michael Chiarello and located at Pier 5 on the bustling San Francisco Waterfront, Coqueta is inspired by the cuisines of Spain. Chef Chiarello feels that Spain’s signature ‘small plates’ coupled with the social vibrancy of their dining scene is the perfect combination for San Francisco, which has its own deep-rooted history with the country. Focusing on regional dishes from Madrid, Catalonia, the Basque Country and beyond, the menu will feature Chiarello's interpretation of traditional Spanish cuisine and, as has always been his tradition, will highlight the bounty of fresh, local ingredients from land and sea.

Coqueta means “flirt” or “infatuation” in Spanish, and represents Michael Chiarello and his team’s exploration and interpretation of Spanish Cuisine, wine and inspired cocktails, while highlighting the bounty of Northern California.

    Very disappointing for a Michelin rated restaurant. We had the misfortune to go on a night when there was a very cold breeze blowing and only outdoor seating was available. Half of the heaters did not work including the only one pointed at us. A large group came in and all the good, working heaters were promptly placed around their table so they were nice and cozy. The rest of us were left to freeze. All the hot food arrived cold. We ordered appetizers as soon as we got there. We ordered our mains about 20 minutes later. The appetizers arrived well after our mains. We asked the waiter and he told us they were backed up in the kitchen. But wait ... how does that translate to getting what should have been hot mains that take a while to cook arriving well before our cold appetizers? A mystery. I would go back on a day with warm weather or get a reservation inside. Eating cold, grilled octopus that is supposed to be served hot off the grill is not on my Michelin bucket list. Michelin needs to go back and rethink this place.

    I visited Coqueta with a party of 5 for a special occasion. They were incredibly accommodating (an event in the city and our Uber made us late for our reservation!) and offered us complementary bubbly and tapas to help celebrate. The food was gorgeous AND delicious, especially the Paella de Tinta (OMG)! We were especially happy with the cocktails and sangria, which were creative, beautiful, potent, and delicious. Servers were prompt, friendly, attentive, and helpful as we navigated making sure we had enough food but not too much. The setting was gorgeous, from the view of the Bay to the flatware and plates. Every detail was thought through to create a beautiful experience for my friends and I. Thank you Coqueta for an amazing dining experience! I highly recommend this for a special occasion or any occasion.

    Food was mediocre and overpriced. Half our hot dishes came out cold. Waiter was inattentive and took our order wrong. The waiter also never checked in on us during the entire meal. As someone who's had good Spanish food, Coqueta misses the mark (by a lot).

    Truly Disappointed. We love tapas and had been looking forward to this dinner all week. We sat for 20 minutes at the table with no service. I had turned all the way around in my chair looking for a waiter thinking we had not been assigned one when he finally came over. Food was good but not wow - I would give 3.5 stars. Octopus and shrimp were good as were potatos bravas. The strawberries with puff pastry and pastry cream was my favorite dish of what we ordered (8 dishes/tapas) Churros were oddly heavy and doughy. We had to wave down the waiter for dessert menus and wave him down for the check. Restaurant was very loud. By the end of the meal (nearly 2 hours) we just wanted to leave. I don’t think we’ll be back.

Manager changing our seat, and adjusting the heaters for us, to the AMAZING server ( sorry I forgot his name). They both made up for everything! Then we had the food… OMG! The food and drinks were EXCELLENT!! If you’re “on the fence” about this place, Don’t be!!! Just GO!! ( make a reservation!!!)

    The only reason I did not give five stars in all categories is because I had a reservation and had to sit outside. When I made the reservation there was not an option to request inside or outside. Had I known I was going to be outside, I would have dressed warmer. Although we were in the midst of a heat wave, it was in the evening and it was still cold for me. Would have been even colder without the heat wave Also the wait staff kept promising to turn the heat lamp on THREE Times and it wasn’t until the last time that it was turned on.

    Excellent food - interesting, flavorful, and well seasoned. My husband is vegetarian, and there were plenty of options to try. My sister-in-law and I shared a smoked salmon dish. The trumpet mushroom dish was a bit of a miss, but everything else was wonderful. The textured dining plates were cute, but the texture on the surface was difficult to cut on with a knife. It got fairly loud even though the indoor space isn’t very large. We would have considered a table outdoors but the outdoors area was much too sunny and unsheltered. Service was too slow. The food came quickly, but we felt forgotten many times. We had to flag down someone to bring a dessert menu and then had to gesture to the waiter for the check. The water glasses were very small and not filled often. We were there for two hours. Our waiter seemed to be hustling and it seemed like there was a lot of staff around, but maybe he was covering too many tables.

    This used to be one of my favorite restaurants. I will not ever be going back. The quality of the food has declined. Menu items like the paella are completely changed with lower quality ingredients and smaller serving. It’s a tourist spot now where the emphasis is on location and not the food or service. Too bad.

    $120 for a steak that was so tough it was impossible to cut through! We thought our knife was dull at first and got another one, but it was the steak… Also our server disappeared 2/3 of the way through, and we had to hound other staff for other items, togo boxes, and our check! This used to be our favorite restaurant but I can’t imagine coming back anymore. 😒
