Music during dinner in the Bar is too loud to have a conversation. Impacting the atmosphere negatively. Then the JD stopped 2230 and following music was pleasent.

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.

We sat outside where the heaters kept us warm on a cool evening. There were a couple of special menu options and so we chose the 5 course menu for £45. Service was friendly and attentive although we felt a bit abandoned at the end when we were the only table outside and so the passing waiting staff were few and far between. Food was beautifully served and delicate. Ambience was buzzy but quiet enough to have a proper catch up. Love this place. Recommend to come early for drinks outside before dining.

The autumn menu is here and is worth it! Me and my colleague decided to go to Coq d’Argent for a relax Friday lunch and try the new menu, we were not disappointed! The set menu is very good value with beautiful and tasty dishes like the goat cheese started served in a parcel and the amazing coq au vin. I went for a la carte dishes and tried the octopus tempura followed by the rack of lamb both amazing. But I must say the best part was the dessert: I had the Poire Belle Hélène which is a traditional French dessert made with a poached pear, vanilla ice cream and hot chocolate sauce. That is to die for!

Nice atmosphere and great service. We were a party of 6 and had the three courses for £30 with a glass of bubbles. Really good value and decent portion sizes. I had the tomato and mozzarella starter which was nice, the tomatoes slightly soft, if I’m going to be pernickety. The lamb main came with mash and was nicely tender but could have done with more jus. The chocolate fondant dessert with pistachio ice cream was superb. The bill came to £41 a head, that was with sharing a bottle of house wine and service.

It’s a great location if the weather is good and you can have a few post dinner drinks out on the terrace as they’ve got a DJ which sets a great vibe.

Good value for the special offer, I’d go back.

We came here for our anniversary meal. We sat outside which had a lovely atmosphere and pretty decorations. Service was very good, staff were very friendly and made you feel special. We had the evening standard menu which included a glass of champagne. To start we both had the goats cheese parcel. It was very tasty, but also quite large for a starter as it was so rich. For main I had the lamb shank which came with potatoe pure in a lovely red wine sauce. It was very tasty, very rich. But a great choice. My partner had the chicken supreme which was disappointing it was very dry and also a little but tasteless. He kept having drink lots of water as it was so dry and overcooked, which was a shame. It didn't come with much veg, you could order sides but they charged £6 for spinach which was a little excessive. For desert we both had the chcolate fondut which was amazing. They also very kindly wrote happy anniversary on the plate, that was very sweet of them. Overall a good meal.

We went on the Evening standard deal which is good value. Pleased to see the restaurant now offers a vegan menu.

The food was nice and service was okay. However, did not appreciate the insistence to order dessert upfront rather than a bit later. Perhaps a bit more emphasis on service will help nudge this restaurant up into repeat visits list.

Un excellent restaurant proposant des mets issuent de la cuisine française, de qualité. Le service est plaisant et les serveurs plus qu’aimables. Le rapport qualité prix pour les meals deals (30 courses for £30) est imbattable même s’il faut y rajouter la charge pour l’eau et les couverts. Une jolie vue sur Sky garden. Endroit sympathique pour un dîner. Je le recommande vivement et y retournerai avec plaisir.
