My sister took me to the Bistro for my birthday lunch, just lovely. The service was great so friendly and fresh flowers everywhere. We decided on four plates which we would share, this was our first time there so we wanted to see what the chef could do. He did not disappoint, tuna tartare, mac and cheese, duck confit salad...

This is a real gem of ar estaurant -- across the street from the Neptune thatre and perfectly suited for a late lunch/early supper after the matinee. The staff took wonderful care with us -- made sure that the order for our table of four was able to get to the kitchen ahead of the group of about 30 folks... More

We went here on "date night". I had the crapes which were Devine. The atmosphere was very romantic and the service was awesome. A little French would be helpful in reading the menu but the servers were great at explaining.

Went there with a friend on a whim on a Friday night. We decided to order a number of starters and share them with a bottle of wine. Have to say, their version of bone marrow was the best I've had in the city. It seems to be becoming popular in a few places but the combination and presentation was... More

Visited for the first time for a Saturday Brunch with some friends. The service was amazing. I arrived early and was pampered until my friends arrived. We enjoyed a leisurely brunch with amazingly great food and never felt rushed. Definitely going back!

The lovely atmosphere, attentive service and decadent menu at Bistro le Coq always gives you a little feeling of Paris. The French Onion soup, pork belly, crepes, halibut and roast chicken are all delicious. They also have a lovely and creative cocktail menu for something a little special. The waitress was lovely and attentive, but lacked a bit of finesse... More

Love the atmosphere, the food is very good. However, I have an allergy to alcohol and can't have food cooked or marinated in alcohol, and I found them not very willing to address it. As a result, there was little I could have on the menu. Most places are really great about it, and I am always willing to change... More
