Coq d'Argent gets very mixed reviews and I can see why. It is undoubtably the best location bar none in the Square Mile and on a Summers evening the roof terrace is spectacular. Sadly it goes a bit downhill after that. The service was good, that table settings good, the menu looked good, the food was average. At £100 per person, which was mainly to do with wine and coffee and brandy, it wasn't the best value for money.
Perhaps I order badly everytime I go, it's not however all bad. Starters of Foie gras terrnie, Colchester Oysters and Lobster Confit were all great, mains of Roast Rack of Lamb, Beefsteak au poivre and Duck Confit were average at best.
This is a problem for D&D London who own this chain and state on their website that the “elegant eatery Coq d'Argent offers diners the finest French cuisine ”. Quite simply in London there are many many places that actually do offer fine French cuisine but sadly this isn't one of them.
