    Staff shortages and a very busy lunch service meant we had to keep asking staff for service. That said the service was always excellent when we received it, clearly more staff on duty would have helped. Still an excellent restaurant though.

    Great restaurant discovery and good food though there was nothing any of us wanted on the set menu - good value if you like the choices. I do however, object to a donation to an unnamed charity being added automatically to the bill. One is not asked or even told about this - and as it is only £1 they think nobody will object. I do however, particularly as the waitress was unable to tell me what charity and in any case I choose my own charities to donate to. How do we even know they donate the amount collected? Not a good look for a restaurant.

    Another excellent meal at the Coq d’argent restaurant. The food was to the normal high standard and the range of items on offer remains high. The options for the set menu are excellent. The greeting and service was to the usual high standards. Whilst I appreciate that this is a Corporate as well as private destination, I do feel that the price points on the wine list, which is extensive, will deter some customers.

    Always a favorite while in the City of London. It’s my go to place for a business meal. I gave the food only 4 stars because I felt the deer was a bit undercooked. But in fairness that could have been my error.

    Always my first choice. Intimate atmosphere and not rushed. Not much halaal choice and the options that met with one aspect of our dietary restrictions failed to meet with another as the sauces contained alcohol. But the staff happily made an alternative and delicious sauce to accompany our meal. Faultless service and scrumptious food in relaxing environment.

    I booked the lunch, but the guests confirmed that the service was poor. They had to wait so long for their starters, mains and request for drinks. Plus, because service was so slow, they all cancelled the desserts that they had ordered. One guest was only able to have a starter, as the main course took so long to be served that he had to leave and get back to the office as he had a meeting.

    Food was delicious and beautifully presented. The service needs improving. Staff seemed not to be properly trained or perhaps they are just miserable. Nobody smiled and sometimes they seemed not to understand. Eg we were asked what wines we wanted. We asked if they had a wine list. Yes, was the answer from the waitress, who then walked away and did not come back with one. Although we saw it from the humorous side, not really what you expect from a restaurant of this quality and service with a smile would have been nice.

    Coq d argent is back! The set menu with good French fare, good bread and butter, shorter and more manageable wine list with great choice, excellent service and discreet. So good it went back to basics, hope it will stay so!

    We normally take a la carte but this time the menu seemed all right. One of us has a good steak and another had an horrible steak. We receive a replacement which was better, but we wanted so long that the rest of the table had finished their main by the time the replacement steak arrived. Secondly we ordered some cocktail well in advance of ordering the starter and yet they brought the starter at the same time of the cocktail. We wanted cocktail first and we wanted wine with the starter. But the waiters were disorganised. Thirdly, the starter of one of us was cold when it was supposed to be hot so that the cheese would be meeting. Instead it felt like eating uncooked cheese. The service is charged at 15% when most of the Walters seemed inexperienced or at least not in a good mood. One Walters just place my glass of wine abruptly on the table as if I was annoying him as I reminder another Walters that I was still waiting for my glass of wine while my husband had received his 5 minutes previous... and the list goes on..

    Top floor restaurant with a good vibe and delicious food. Wine list was quite expensive for out of Londoners, but good offer in January. Service was attentive. Food was beautifully presented. It was a birthday celebration (7 of us in party) and we kindly received a decorated platter of mini desserts which was a lovely touch. Would definitely recommend.

    We had a very pleasant long lunch. There was only one other table when we arrived and they were a bit pompous but it didn't affect our meal. The staff were welcoming and attentive. My partner thought them a little slow but I quite liked not being checked on every other minute. The meal was quite tasty, the octopus was an interesting combination but quite nice. The creme brulee was lovely. We had champagne as part of their January offer which went down nicely. I would come again.

    Would not exactly recommend for NYE dinner. 6 course menu wrote amous bouche but they wrote this as indicating one of the dishes is an amous bouche. Should have just omitted those words. This years garden area was also closed off? Firework area could have turned on heaters in advance. Seemed staff were all temporary workers for the day which is okay but need a bit more training.

    They sat us close to an open door which made it very cold and draughty. The set meal was served very quickly with little time between courses. The price for a set meal served to everyone in the restaurant at £160 was far too much. I am not a fan of duck or chocolate so I did not enjoy two of the courses. Overall a disappointing New Year’s Eve at a a normally good restaurant.

    Very nice restaurant. Food was excellent especially the Veal chop. The lobster was a very small and the king prawns @£6 each way over priced especially when you have to shell and devein them yourself. The meal was excellent and we would return
