The service was absolutely atrocious - we had to wait/and or ask for everything, menus, water, wine etc. Coq d'Argent was a great restaurant in the 1980/1990s, but it feels like if you have the set menu (not with standing spending a lot of money on wine) you are segregated - will not return

We ordered from the set menu which was good value as the quality of food is really nice. Would be nice to have a few more options for allergies. Service was great and efficient, maybe a bit too much depending on your preference.

We had a wonderful time at Coq D'Argent. We had the evening standard meal-starter was smoked salmon, main-escargots and dessert creme brulee. I have been before and had the a la carte menu-the food has always been amazing. Highly recommend.

I’m quite torn with this review. The food was excellent, the staff were very friendly and attentive. However, the staff seemed a bit clueless and didn’t seem to communicate with each other. The waiting staff didn’t know which was our wine and left us waiting for a while on a couple of occasions while they awaited the sommelier. Atmosphere was a bit of a let down. Pretty empty restaurant in comparison with where we had pre dinner drinks at The Ned across the road. Wine list was good but had no description of the wine at all. Simply the country, name and price. A bit of a let down unfortunately although really could not fault the food at all.

The food was very good. The staff attentive. My only criticism is that the nose level of the dinners talking is intolerable even when it’s not full as wax the case on this night. It’s hard to have a conversation with the person. Seated opposite you. This explains part of. the problem, everyone has the s problem But how to dull it down.

I am afraid to say that the experience was completely underwhelming, and not in keeping with the level of standards I would expect, nor was it at the levels I have experienced from other D&D restaurants.

Whilst I appreciate it is Christmas and a busy time, below are the contributing factors to why I felt our lunch fell below the required levels of service.

•We were sat down, no one offered us a drink or a menu for around 15 minutes
•We chose two wines, both were sold out
•Three of us ordered the lamb shank. This is served in a small soup type dish which makes it difficult and unpleasant to eat from, what is wrong with a normal plate? There was no space to put any sides either, I don’t think that has been thought through properly.
•We had to top ourselves up for wine
•We were given desert menus, however no one returned to take an order for around 30-40mins until I chased a member of staff
•The tables are far too close together, I think you have tried to squeeze too many covers in, which made it incredibly noisy and difficult to hear our own conversations, there was no space between my chair and the table behind for the waiter to walk through.

The £42 Dover sole was over cooked absolutely criminal, the foie gras starter had such little flavour they attempted to salt it which just ruined it, more criminal activity.

Slow to take order for drinks and food, table beside us got their main courses before us but should have been after.

Very very disappointing. Strongly advise against going to this restaurant unless you don’t have any taste buds, enjoy over cooked and over priced food.

This is a very enjoyable experience from stepping out of the lift to getting seated at the table. This is somewhere in between fine dining and casual dining. Just small things, they don't always serve from the correct side, they don't unfold your napkin and the initial drinks/cocktail ordering can seem a bit confused. We went for the 6 course truffle tasting menu with the wine recommendations. All the dishes were superb. The Cod was the winner, but all in all they really made it a great experience. The only thing for me they could have done, was trimming the veal as it was huge and a bit off-putting visually after 5 dishes and all the other dishes were 'clean plate', whereas this one had a huge bone attached that you had to fight with. All dishes tasted amazing and was clearly made to a high standard. Staff super helpful and friendly.

I really like this place having been over 20 times. The cooking is largely French (clues in the name I guess) and sound but not exceptional. The rooftop is lovely in position and usually atmospheric. Tonight however we were all crowded into one section and despite an early evening booking the noise levels soon became excessive. Starter of snail as and pasta were lovely and the roe deer succulent and well cooked. An Amuse Bouche of cauliflower soup was lovely. My problem is this is all rather staid and the prices uncompetitive even in the city. This is most obvious in a totally OTT wine list which offers very poor value. How about a page of affordable wine not based on city bonuses. Usually the service is excellent but tonight they were simply trying to hard! I’ll not give up as I love the place but disappointed on this occasion!

Starters and desserts from Parisien Feast were amazing, my granddaughter's eyes popped at the dessert choices. The beef, lamb and roast veg and potatoes were delicious. The Yorkshire pudding was sadly a little tough and I wish I had asked for more gravy. The staff are delightful, friendly and professional. A lovely Sunday lunch experience

This is now definitely one of my favourite restaurants in London. Impeccable service whilst still friendly and enjoyable - just great food and a lunch fixed menu with lots of things I want to eat on it!!
The Coq au Vin was outstanding and the mashed potato devine!
Note to other restaurant owners - the option of half bottles of wine on a wine list is fantastic!
I always want red and white and I may not need two bottles - the option for 1 and a half is excellent.
