We've eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. Service is always great, cocktails tasty, wine list comprehensive, but it's the food that stands out the most. You really feel like you're eating at a bistro in France. And they have the best cheese board in the city!

Nothing about this little slice of France disappoints. Beautifully plated meals excite the palate. Wait staff are wonderfully attentive. Great for large groups too.

We love to go to Bistro Le Coq, especially for brunch before the theatre. There is a broad Brunch menu, but I have been devoted to the Steak Sandwich and Frits - the best in the city. However, I will be ordering the Lobster Bennie next time, with fresh Nova Scotian lobster. All of the ingredients are fresh and when... More

We picked Bistro le Coq based on the Tripadvisor reviews and they guided us well. Good food, excellent service (Thank you Clair). The bone marrow appetizer was quite good, an interesting combination of tastes. Some in the party had the chicken, which was tender and juicy. Others had the duck, which was competently cooked, and good, although not amazing. At... More

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
