A place is promoted as see food restaurant , but we found that a menu has a very short and standard list of seafood... The
Main course is overpriced for sure... Don’t take fried mussels with bread crumbs... you will not find mussels in them, just crumbs....Fresh mussels were excellent...

The food was excellent although expensive. We had a male server who wasn’t happy, not one smile all night and not friendly. It affected the experience. There were 2 women though that were lovely.

Very nice space. Friendly and knowledgeable staff.
Food was not worthy of the space. Salt was used far too much, resulting in a sodium hangover.
I had the clam pasta - basically flavorless, except a bit of spice
Our impression is that the chef(s) were line cooks with little experience.
As it was Saturday night at 7:00 p.m., the restaurant was half full - that should be a signal to management that something isn't working - and that would be the food.

First of all, the service from Toby and his Czech friend was absolutely outstanding. However, the oyster appetizers were essentially drowned in breadcrumbs, and the Food portions generally were small.
The crabcakes were good. The “ Fish and chips“ main was tasty but small and somewhat overcooked.
All in all, not a bad meal and there is lots of potential here. If the chef takes it up a notch, this will be a great place.

Food really was fantastic, but true to a fancier restaurant, the portions were quite small and my party and me ended up eating a snack later in the evening to fill up. Great service and fun decor, just a little more on the plate would have earned 5 stars!

Fine table, attentive, friendly service, good wine list. Outstanding seafood. We had the platter for two, which is among the best I have had in 20 years, and big enough to be the whole meal. Then we both chose the sable fish. Cooked to perfection!
Will go again, probably this week as friends are coming for a few days. A gem of a place we had not been to before, as it is a little buried among very average pubs and saloons. Will recommend Coquille to several seasoned foodies, knowing that they will not be disappointed.

Really beautiful room - love the aesthetic. Live pianist was a charming touch. Server was delightful, food was good. And it was a quiet room - the banquets seem to muffle some of the noise, so that you can have easy conversation without shouting, like in so many restaurants. Will be back!

We found Coquille while looking for romantic seafood restaurant. We're already big fans of L'Abattoir, but did not realize there was a sister restaurant. We loved the way we were greeted at the door, and found the staff all professional and friendly. We shared the gnocchi and the sailor platter, which was a perfect amount of food for a drawn-out evening. We loved that the server was timely yet did not hover or bug us too much. We'll definitely be back!

The location is perfect and the ambiance is good, but the restaurant misses in two important aspects.
The food lacked consistency and balance and the service was adequate but completely impersonal.

For appetizers we ordered the octopus carpaccio. Unfortunately the smoked paprika aioli just overpowered the whole dish and the piquillo peppers seemed to come directly from a can, the grilled oyster were ok but not memorable.
For main dishes we had a pan roasted Ling Cod that had absolutely no seasoning or flavor, and then we got the most beautifully cooked and seasoned halibut we have had in a long time. It really seemed dishes from different restaurants.
The service was professional but we missed some warmness and a welcoming smile.
Overall it was a miss.

The service was so clunky and unknowledgeable it was hard to believe this was a reputed restaurant with a good chef. Didn't really know about the oysters or the wine list. The waiters were totally new and green about service not just at the restaurant but in general. Finally we got some good advice from the sommelier about the BC wine and the regional oysters. The Food was delicious and fresh.
I specifically wrote that this was a birthday celebration and was so surprised that when we ordered dessert, the waitress couldn't just do the right thing and bring out one of them with a candle but had to ask to do it. Really!? The food redeems the place, but the service just felt so out of step with the price-point. Figure this out front of house manager!

We ordered seafood platter because king crab is my husband’s favorite food. Although they listed king crab on the menu for the platter, there was no king crab on it when it was served. They even didn’t mention that they don’t have it when we ordered. When we asked about that, our server said they put extra mussels in stead of crab. Mussels...really..?
After the short conversation, the server brought a small portion of crab meat as a compensation. That was nice of her. But, she or someone charged extra 19% service charge on the bill without mentioning anything. Of course we asked about the charge. When we asked, she said she didn’t know where the charge came from. So the charge was mysteriously appeared on the bill? I would recommend paying attention to detail when visiting this restaurant.

There were a few odd sauce pairings but I dont mind the experimentation. Will go back.
