Coq d'Argent is the definition of an urban oasis. High above the City you'll find a classic French restaurant, complete with an extensive terrace and a secret garden.

Perched on the roof of No. 1 Poultry, Coq d’Argent offers a constant in the ever-changing fortunes of the square mile. Regional French food is served in a spectacular dining room, which, like its spacious, lawned roof terrace, offers unparalleled views over the City of London.

I ordered the set menu which was good value but the drinks, cover charge etc made the total bill over £100 which I didn’t find competitive. My juice was £4.50 with green beans at £6.50. Far too expensive for what it is so I wouldn’t be returning. The set menu is fine if you have only one soft drink as an extra. The cover charge should be made much clearer

I'd recommend this place for a client meeting. It's quite large, busy, but the offer and food quality is good. Especially the set menus. Waiting to get the food ordered (both mains and desserts) for over 20 minutes wasn't great.

25 minutes for one drink. Attempted the tasting menu, but had to abandon after 90 minutes having only seen one slice of smoked salmon, 2 pieces of ravioli served in a glass, and a single scoop of sorbet. Course four was inaccurate, then overcooked.

Sommelier was obtuse.
Refused to open wine in front of us.
Suggested a young light wine from the mid 90s.
Whole situation odd.
Way too hot inside too.

Food was good tho.

from start to finish an impeccable dining experience! the execution of the dishes was phenomenal. flavors were robust and presentation was gorgeous. each course was perfectly prepared. the wait staff and sommelier were helpful, attentive, and knowledgeable. with seven of us, we managed to sample most of the menu; the salmon dish was exquisite, the risotto was decadent, the rabbit was flavorful, the coq au vin was perfect, and the steaks were delicious. the chef has done an outstanding job creating that menu. the pomme dessert stole the show as we came to the end of our meal but the macarons are not to be missed! honestly one of the most thoroughly delicious meals we had in london. we will absolutely be back! thank you!

They were very busy and seemed like not enough waiters to serve all the full tables which is unusual as the service is normally very friendly here but was slow on this occasion. Food always delicious and a tranquil setting hidden in the City. Sometimes the old ones really are the best!

Superb venue for alfresco eating in the heart of the City - and there's always indoor dining if the weather isn't quite up to expectation. An outdoor table wasn't available at the time of our booking, but the maitre d' was exceptionally helpful - and we enjoyed a cocktail while waiting for our table outside. Went for the a la carte menu. Lovely food. Drinks service was a little slow, which was surprising given we were a mid-afternoon booking. Otherwise, though, totally recommended!

Its been a hot week but it was off the scale awful in Coq D'argent this week. Off the scale. They do have air con but not using it. they had the doors open which worked for those sat by them - not many - for everyone else who had to sit inside as the table outside had been taken was awful. Do not sit by the windows if its hot and you are inside, they act like radiators

Busy restaurant on a week night (they should know by now) unfortunately it felt terribly under staffed. Asked for water and ice at least three times and the waitress messed up a simple set menu order. Food was good and the set menu was excellent value for money however

We had the ES menu and were happy with our choices. Visually spectacular 'Pomme' dessert, although there was too much of it - probably a great sharing option. Service was very good but the restaurant became incredibly busy, so it was hard to get the attention of the staff as the evening wore on.

Amazing food on the Grande dejeuner menu. Unfortunately the visit was mared by poor service. Not enough waiting staff on the floor looking after tables. The floor manager and sommelier had to do all the work for the whole restaurant. Cost cutting has taken its toll.....

A brilliant experience! and a perfect birthday lunch. The weather was good and we sat outside. It got quite busy but the waiting staff were welcoming and friendly throughout. The food is amazing, we had the Evening Standard deal which is a really good selection from the main menu and a glass of champagne. Thankyou.

I had a fantastic food experience!!! I know Maurizio and I have been following him since Cut, then Indigo and now Coq D’Argent. With this food and his knowledge this restaurant deserves at least two Michelin 🌟🌟. Well done to who hired Maurizio. I will be back in Manchester with unforgettable moments and memories

Very disappointed in the quality of the food. Had the burrata as a starter and it was dense and not at all creamy. The rest of the food also lacked refinement. The only saving grace was the very friendly waiter and the view.

Service was a bit slow, restaurant was busy and too much going on staff seemed overwhelmed, the lift was not working so we had to wait for one in the back. Food is good but many other locations in London have similar food and better service, outside area is nice, maybe I would consider going back but maybe just to go to the bar.

Excellent restaurant. Sommelier, very attentive. Server was very attentive but then as her load increased she became less visible and service quality decreased. Our plates took more than 20 minutes to clear after finishing. That said, the food itself was excellent. Starters or foie gras and tortellini with truffles were outstanding and well cooked. The chateaubriand was cooked perfectly and served beautifully. Compared to Ramsay's Bread Kitchen, this restaurant is MUCH better. Go here for high quality food and an excellent wine list.
