Had a very nice lunch with two good customers of mine and Greg and everyone else really looked after us, with a great choice of food and finished with a very nice Ice wine with our desserts.

Excellent food and amazing service that deserves 10 out of 10. I had a scallop appetiser, sea bass for main, and coffee/ chocolate dessert. The sea bass was one of the best dishes I’ve had in a long time.

A fantastic evening at Coq d’Argent, having only decided to go there on the spur of the moment. Thank you to Open Table and Coq d’Argent for fitting us in.
Service was fantastic and given that it was later in the evening and there was a spare table next to us, they let us sit side by side rather than across the table; it can get quite loud at times due to the glazed walls but then again, that’s what makes the restaurant so stunning on a light, sunny evening!
Food was fantastic and my girlfriend absolutely loved it, having never previously eaten there.
We’ll be back again soon!

Very loud - probably good atmosphere for a group of friends but not for a relaxing, romantic or business dinner
Didn’t account for dietary requirements properly
Food was mediocre but bread quite good
Nice terrace but not part of the dinner area, was closed when we went anyway

A lovely evening with cocktails on the rooftop veranda and good meal from the set menu in the restaurant.
My only criticism would be the service. Whilst fine initially, this got gradually worse as the time it took between courses and to get the bill to pay got longer and longer.
I understand not wanting to be too 'in your face' but it should not take over 3 hours for a 3 course meal for 2.

Reviews looked good overall so we booked this for our last night in London. To begin, it was so noisy it was nearly impossible to hear the staff, so we weren't so quick to understand what was being asked. The first table was directly behind waitstaff station, and I was continually bumped into, and with the noise level being so irritatingly loud we asked for another table. Outside was a bit better, but the server who came had an attitude. At this point we were ready to leave. Restaurant manager Maurizio caught us leaving and insisted he would make things right. We got a quieter table and he personally took care of us. I hope the restaurant appreciates him!
The wine recommendation for our dinner was good. The sea bass was over-salted. Flavor was just so-so. I was really expecting more after reading about the chef. Again, Maurizio made it a much better experience, but overall it was disappointing.

This is my go to restaurant for business lunch or dinner. Good food but an overpriced wine list which forces you too chose sub optimal wines as for example: ~£80 for a ~£28 wine does not work.

Hadn't been to Coq d'Argent for a number of years but they have really raised their game. The restaurant was buzzy on a Friday night, and service was very good. We opted for the set menu at £34.50 for 3 courses with 4 options for every course, the food was excellent and provided outstanding value for money.
It has always been a lovely venue, but now with food to match. Will be returning !

Nice place, heated terrace, friendly staff, not rushed but maybe just a few finer points could have been better like clearing crumbs off the table in between courses and someone looking after the gents toilet, the floor was disgusting, reported this but they stayed like that all evening also there was no stock of the first two bottles of wine we choose so we had third choice.
Overall we enjoyed our visit

Excellent place for a business lunch and venue will impress guests. Low ceiling and close proximity to other diners makes it a noisy experience and it was more comfortable once the restaurant emptied a little. Attentive service and good recommendations on the wine.

We had the set menu and the starter was good to start with so we were looking forward to a good eating experience. The cocktails were nice too however we found the lamb too salty. This was disappointing but not yet the deal breaker. I didn’t mind sitting behind the waiters bar until one or two of them walked by us and released quite pungent gas on two occasions. It was hard to carry on trying to eat the already inedible food and more so now trying to breathe. Admittedly flatulence is natural human occurrence but once might have been ok - twice was unacceptable and quite embarrassing.
This spoilt the whole experience and atmosphere for us.
Not sure I’ll be visiting here again after this scarred experience.
Desert was alright- nothing spectacular.

The service was very slow - from getting menu, ordering wine, getting the food, getting the bill!

The wine was poured at erratic intervals and kept away from the table so we could not get to it such that we ended up drinking half the bottle after the meal !

Friendly but completely lacking in attentiveness!!

Quite disappointed with Coq d’Argent. Dined here last year and it was solid 5 review. We were placed at a 9 top next to the main entrance and the cigarette smoke from the bar and the terrace doors was overwhelming. My party of 9 then had to wait 20 minutes to even place an order for cocktails. First two selections from the wine list were not available. When our food arrived, every waiter delivered the meals to to wrong person. Unbelievable. After dinner, we asked to order brandy and coffee with desert. Orders were taken for the desert, but not for brandy or coffee — we were told to wait for a separate menu. The menu never arrived. Coffee/brandy orders were never taken — unbelievable. In all fairness, the food was excellent, but that is only part of the experience, and a restaurant at this level with great food and awful service just doesn’t cut it. Maybe it was just a bad night, but when you show up with 9 people and pay a four-figure tab, that just does not cut it. I would suggest a different choice.

even though the restaurant was not full, was sat in between the service station and the balcony window. felt super cramped, with waiters brushing past my seat as they constantly walked by. despite waiters all seem occupied, not sure what they were doing apart from making sure we were not being attended to. when we did receive some service, a number of times the waiter came up to ask about our night only to end in mid sentence to run off doing something else. food did come reasonably quick, but an understated disappointment overall.
