Located in the heart of the city within close proximity to major attractions such as St Paul’s Cathedral, the Tower of London, Tower Bridge and the Southbank. Coq d’Argent is an elegant, fine dining space guaranteed to impress with stylish and discreet service, while our rooftop terraces offer unparalleled, panoramic views over the City of London. Head Chef Damien Rigollet uses only the finest ingredients to create his classic French menu with contemporary flavours.
Great location but that’s the only positive comment I can make. Very poor service. For the high prices charged I would expect excellent service but it was woefully lacking. Made to feel that we were “lucky” to be there!!!
If I could give half-ratings this would be a 3.5, but one of our waiting staff really made our evening at the end, so I've rounded up to a 4.
We booked Coq D'Argent as a special 5th anniversary treat, and wanted to go somewhere...special to celebrate.
Firstly, the entrance is kind of hard to find if you're not using something like Google Maps, there are these tiny lifts that have 'Coq D'Argent' on them in red lighting above each, but they're hidden behind a corner. Nothing that a bit of googling couldn't help though!
We got the lift up and were greeted by the front of house staff, who congratulated us on our anniversary, and then proceeded to shove us into a corner table, surrounded by a wall, a COVID plastic barrier, and an air ventilation grate. Not very romantic or celebratory, is it?
When a waiter asked for our drinks order, we instead asked to move outside onto a terrace table, which is where we had originally booked for, so I'm not sure why we got shoved into a corner inside the main restaurant. He didn't seem best pleased to move us, which didn't make sense because they'd be taking our money wherever we sat. Not very impressed so far.
We ordered a bottle of red to go with our lamb and duck mains, and this really improved our experience - the food was delicious, melt in the mouth, so the quality of the food and the culinary team definitely made us feel better about our choice to dine here. The sommelier was attentive with our order and consistently topped our glasses so we didn't have to.
As we paid up, a second waitress asked us how or meal was and what we were celebrating and organised a sharing dessert platter for us which was really sweet of her.
If you are looking to save up and go to celebrate for something special, I would not say that Coq D'Argent was above and beyond other restaurants of the same calibre. However, the food was excellent and you would have a nice meal here.More
First time here but won't be the last! Loved it! Great ambience - wonderful views of London from the bar (shame there's no tables and chairs out there but maybe later in the year??)
Saturday lunch menu was incredible value for money - £39.50 for...3 courses in central London - bargain! Food was fabulous quality, service was great, attentive but not rushed. All in all, a fab experience.More
17-Mar Coq D'Argent. My second visit to this restaurant, and another excellent meal. My starter of teriyaki octopus with houmous was an unusual but fantastic flavour combination. My cote de veau main course was more traditional but very good indeed. Pain d'epice dessert rounded off...the meal nicely. Service was seemlessly slick throughout. I'll definitely be back for another visit.More
Service need’s improving.
Attended Saturday with my family starter was average we was waiting for main we order tomahawk to share and I believe the way they have service set up need’s improving they send the food from kitchen to restaurant on a bar without...heating lamps and then when a waiter is ready they pick it up and brings it to the table that’s way I believe our main was cold . 🥺🥺🥺 shame because was a very nice quality meat .
Hope they can improve their service is a very nice place .More
My wife and I enjoyed a lovely meal for 2. Starting with winter negronis on the heated terrace, before being collected and taken to our table by the matradee
The food was generous and perfectly cooked. My lamb shank couldn't have been better and my...wife's octopus starter and grilled fish main were expertly crafted, packing a lot of flavour. The spinach side was over-salted (as professional chefs often seem to do).
The whole team there are fun, friendly and slick. Ricardo, our sommelier very knowledgeable, stopping by to give us tasting notes and a general education in wine. Really enjoyed the entry-level Chilean cab sav.
Negatives: There was a serving station near our table with plates piling up, and being scrapped etc. You wouldn't really expect that in a posh restaurant. Inexplicably, they haven't taken their Xmas decs down on the terrace (surely they won't be there all year? - not a classy look guys! ).
But a lovely meal regardless.More
food below standard
wines leave much to be desired
1. Very good service.
2. Very good location.
3. Food and wine were not as good and worse than expected at a restaurant of this class.
Salmon to start: tasted like one...I get from Tesco, had higher expectations
Braised red cabbage seemed a little old.
Ice- cream and tarte tatin – both simple, low quality
Stone bass was acceptable
Wine – all what was offered was not impressive, simple, unsophisticated
Menus given out to clients looked datedMore

City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
