Went there for a business lunch yesterday. Great atmosphere, fairly priced and good service. Gods choice if seats - we sat outside in the sunshine.

Fantastic views and great for outdoor dining. The atmosphere and service was great. Personally, I found the food tasty but too expensive and the portions too small. The main course of lamb shank only had mashed potato with it and they expected you to pay extra for vegetables, for the price I would expect at least a couple of veg... More

Went for an after work drink to celebrate my 23k birthday (23,000 days old!) and Coq d'Argent was convenient. Plenty of tables at 5.00 pm, but it fills up quickly, especially Thursday and Fridays, so I recommend you go early. No booking necessary for just drinks. The mixologist gave me a Vesper with the wrong gin and the wrong white... More

Have dined here several times over the past 5 years or so. Maybe last night wasn't typical (very hot so lots of people drinking on the terrrace after work) but this was not a classy experience. One of the two lifts not working so a queue had formed to get in, bar so busy staff couldn't keep up, background music... More

Dear AJS33N1 Thank you for your feedback. I am truly sorry for the negative experience you had on Wednesday. Indeed on the hottest day of the week one of our lifts broke down between 6pm-10pm and the bar was overwhelmed with drinks orders at certain stages of the evening. I can assure that it was not a typical night and... More

Went for dinner on a Saturday night for a five-person dinner. The décor is impressive when you enter--really lush. We had a 3 course set menu with champagne, which was really reasonably priced, and the champagne was actually decent. For a starter, I had the escargot, which was very good. I had lamb for my main. It was cooked well,... More

This indoor - outdoor restaurant is famous in the City and it didn't disappoint. It was busy even though it was August and my husband and I had a leisurely lunch on one of the terraces and took a brief tour of the whole property afterwards. Great place to meet - just for a drink as well as to eat.

I had lunch here with five colleagues on a sunny August day. We sat outside to make the most of the weather. I had spatchcock chicken followed by vanilla panna cotta. The food was delicious and the waiters were friendly but they seemed stretched - we had to wait a long time to place our orders and get the bill.

Went here for lunch around 2pm on a hot summers day. Got a table on their rooftop. We enjoyed couple of nice glasses of wine (chilled to perfection), and ordered from their a la carte menu - one tuna nicoise salad, and their sea bass. Shared a chocolate lava cake dessert. Just a lovely experience, nice and relaxed, good attentive... More

I visited Coq d'Argent with some clients and the food and surroundings exceeded expectations. We had a 3 course meal outside (they have a beautiful rooftop garden), and every course was perfectly cooked and presented. It's a pricey place, but for special occasions (or woo-ing clients) it's perfect. 10/10 and I hope to return soon!

My wife and I have an early dinner using the Evening Standard menu that D&D offer in August. We know the restaurant quite well but the food, and particularly the service, were outstanding this time.

Neighborhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighborhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
