Very pleasant lunch in the sunshine. Probably the best outdoor dining facility in the city

This was my first dining experience in the evening since the restrictions eased. I went with my two friends. We had a nice welcome and a nice table which was warm enough with the outdoor heaters. Service was swift and food was delicious. We had a great night together. It’s not my first time at the restaurant but first in a while and it’s always reliable for a nice evening with friends.

It was very busy as the outdoor terrace is amazing and the weather was also great. When we arrived and for the first hour or so of lunch the service was perfect but then it felt like there was a shift change and nobody came to our table for over 45mins so we were topping ourselves up with our wine (not a problem) but then had to get up to find a server to order more drinks as we had been sat empty for nearly half an hour. We were tucked around the corner a little so nobody was passing. We were then moved to another table following lunch which was in the shade so a little cold, but the manager allowed us to move to another table for an hour which was perfect and hugely appreciated! Enjoyed another glass of rosé in the sunshine. Overall service very slow but understand with restrictions not easy and the location and good wine made up for any shortcomings. Will definitely be back.

Highly disappointed by this visit to Coq d'Argent.
First sat at a table without a heater and told we would be moved 'if' a table became available - we could see two free tables. Twenty five minutes passed and no waiter had given us menus, offered us water or taken drinks orders which should have been coming out of our 1h30 dining time. I went to reception to ask to speak to the general manager, they assured me that the manager would be over - I never did see them - we were taken back to the same table, given menus and the waitress told us to 'shout across' the restaurant if she didn't come over.
We were eventually moved to a different table, offered a complimentary glass of champagne and had a lovely waitress. The service was still a bit slow but generally was a lot better and the food was excellent as always.
I was very disappointed as Coq d'Argent is one of my favourite restaurants and I was really looking forward to dining here and the whole experience from the beginning was just not what I expect from a restaurant of Coq d'Argent's calibre. I am having an event in July which was supposed to be here but I will no longer be going ahead with it at Coq d'Argent.

Food was excellent, we started with Oysters and moved onto the Chateaubriand for main. We had a gorgeous table next to a heater and directly under the sun. The wait staff were AMAZING!! I went to 6 restaurants last week and only Coq D'argent is getting glowing reviews. I hate a huge wine list but our waiter was extremely knowledgeable and suggested a great white, red and dessert wine! Than you so much, we will be back soon.

The menu was limited, but understandably so on the basis the restaurant was reopening after the lockdown. However the choices that were available were decent.

The table service was good but the general operation of the restaurant appeared disjointed and disorganised to some degree. The main Managment appeared to struggle with creating a relaxed and controlled atmosphere.

Equally, given it was no surprise the restaurant was opening for outside dining only during April it could have been better prepared, whilst it so appreciated the weather cannot obviously be controlled, it certainly should have come as no surprise the weather can be poor, therefore they could have been better prepared with more heaters and parasols - diners were cold and wet - easily avoided with some small extra measures from the restaurant. Other roof terraces I have visited have achieved it, shame Coq d’argent haven’t.

Another great evening at Coq d’Argent. The staff were friendly and professional, and the Sommelier was in exceptional form with his recommendations again. The food, as always, was outstanding.

I have often shied away from Coq D'Argent - too loud/too many bankers. Now that the city is empty, the crowd was friendlier and the room felt more welcoming. The food on the set menu was great - service was friendly yet professional - thumbs up to Adnan. It's hard to find a wine under £45, but it can be done. Will definitely return post lockdown 2.0

Service was poor. Waited an hour to be served then sat with finished plates for a further 30 after asking someone to clear and being told staff will be along shortly. Hardly anyone in there so makes you wonder why?

Food excellent. Second time we've dined at this restaurant & food always at a high standard.
However on the occasion service below standard expected eg main course served but waited 10 minutes for white wine to be poured. Wrong bill given at end of meal.

Service and the environment were excellent. Alas I felt my food was too (table) salty. It was hard for me and my partner to taste anything else after noticing it. Portions were perfect and I cannot complain about anything else.

Amazing service and the restaurant has been organised to make you feel safe. Food was good but not the usual type of French food, some flavours did not mix very well. It was good to see the place during London restaurant festival.

We went there to celebrate our 10 year anniversary and had a great time...the food was super fresh and delicious, the service was great and the views from the terrace outstanding...It was however so brightly lit that it felt like a hotel lobby- and lacked ambience- by just by dimming the lights the experience would have felt more intimate and romantic...

The waiters and management in the restaurant were fantastic and I have already recommended to a client. The front desk team however were appalling and I almost walked out initially. Brusque, rude, no customer skills whatsoever. 4 members of the team standing in bar area only one person serving. The others made no attempt to assist. As you walk in.....right side rubbish.... left side superb!! Hope this gets taken on board as I love this place and hate to see part of it neglected.

Well but unobtrusively organised for the pandemic, the staff were welcoming and attentive; service was excellent throughout.

The set menu provides sufficient choice, quality of food was excellent and represents very good value for money. Bottles of wine are quite dear so go for wine by the glass if it just two persons.
