I always enjoy visiting this restaurant. This visit was again excellent, only spoilt by poor waiter service. The front desk staff were excellent and the food amazing.

Visited for a business lunch, should have known the meal wasn't going to be great when the rolls that were put on the table were rock hard. Wasn't the worst meal I have had in an "upmarket" London restaurant but I have had better meals...More

Had a business lunch here with my fellow directors. Food and service are exceptional. Thoroughly recommend the steak and tartare de chevreuil. Only criticism if any was it was very busy so noisy making you struggled to hear someone sitting opposite you.

No dress code but you may feel better in smart casual. Jeans are ok so long as smart enough. The "City" lost a lot of pomposity years back. If you are a man, forget the tie. Hope this helps.

Coq d'Argent serves classic French food in its spectacular rooftop setting at No.1 Poultry in the City of London. In addition to the main restaurant, the brasserie offers a less formal menu at lunchtime, while the outdoor terraces and gardens provide a verdant oasis in the heart of the Square Mile.
