Coq d'Argent used to be great for cocktails with friends or a splurge on dinner with the boyfriend, but sadly it has gone completely downhill. I understand the economic sense of getting more bums in the door but it's now cheek-by-jowl at the bar and the clientelle is very ‘mixed’ (read heading in the way of chavvy). I even saw two chaps in there on the make – one with holes cut into the sides of his brogues, presumably because they had not originally been bought for his use.
On a better note the restaurant still executes the (reduced) menu well and the service is more attentive than before (a bit frightening from French waiters, perhaps the accents are now ‘put on’?)
Sadly this venue is now off the ‘special’ list and I doubt it will keep the star.
