Coqueta San Francisco Restaurant Review

Coqueta SF is a perfect restaurant for Tapas lovers like us. It offers a modern interpretation of traditional Spanish tapas and raciones with a touch of California.

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.

I made reservations at Coqueta for Ritesh’s Birthday and he totally loved it. From unique cocktails, classy ambience to innovative tapas and world class service..Coqueta is my new favorite tapas place in San Francisco.

COCKTAILS

Till our table was ready, we were seated at the bar and got to view the behind the scenes cocktail magic. The bartenders were playing with the flavors, liqueurs and condiments. It was piece of art to view.

We ordered their famous refreshing Margarita and colorful Gin & Tonic

AMBIENCE

I am an ardent fan of restaurant ambience with high ceilings and artistic decor. Coqueta SF totally fits the bill.  The open bar and kitchen serve as icing on the cake.
