SquareMeal Review of Coq d'Argent

gold award


Going for the gold standard on a street called Poultry, Coq d’Argent is near the top of the City’s pecking order. We reckon its status as an “all-time favourite” in business diaries is down to a considerable clutch of attractions including gorgeous roof gardens, a heavily diverting wine list and the good looks of a cruise liner in its pomp. The Coq also delivers “consistently good food” from breakfast onwards, taking in gluten-free and vegan menus plus a surprisingly mature children’s offer. Wherever you sit – in the restaurant, grill or bar – the French accent is as robust as the pricing, conjuring Gallic luxury with careful flourishes. Lunch in the Grill might mean cauliflower soup with a poached egg followed by spiced braised lamb shank with white coco beans and wild mushrooms, while the restaurant promises higher levels of complexity – perhaps black truffle and ricotta tortellini with Parmentier espuma or immaculately balanced wild roe deer with a plateful of silky seasonal trimmings. The service at Coq d’Argent is equal to the demands of a confident clientele.

I have not been back for a while and found that some of the staff had no idea how the restaurant and bar worked. It took a long time for us to order and when we did order, the wrong order for the main course came to the table. We sent it back and then the staff brought it back and insisted that we had it. The starters were good, quail but the main course was poor, the food over cooked and to add insult to injury for not bringing the right order. The desert was supposed to take 15 to 20 minutes for a hot tart tatin, 5 minutes later it arrive, cool-not impressed. At the end the staff lost our coats and we spent time trying to find them as we walked around the cloak roomst. They were hidden beneath other coats and our number tag bore no relationship to the location of the coats. Such a shame

The restaurant has a great buzz and excitement to it – as soon as you arrive you are made to feel special. The food is very well presented and tasted divine, however, the prices are not cheap and the bill can easily escalate with sides etc.

Lovely evening out with clients, great food and service. Wine is expensive but worth the visit.
