A lovely French bistro. The menu was classic, and all the food was all very well prepared. The marrow bones were the highlight of the meal for me: a very generous portion (share them!) with a lovely blueberry compote that complimented the dish nicely. I had the duck breast and someone else had the steak frites. Both were perfectly cooked,... More

The title says it all. We went here for dinner a couple of days before Christmas, on a rainy weeknight. We were early but there were still a number of people in the restaurant. We both ordered the steak sandwich, with fried egg on top. It was delicious. The beef was medium well done, nicely cut---not too thin, not too... More

My wife and I can't say enough good things about Bistro le Coq. We are both living in Ontario and wanted to get married in Halifax as she is from the East Coast. In November 2015 we went to Halifax to scout out various venues for our dinner and reception. We met with the manager at the time, Emma and... More

Sat in the bar, loved the European atmosphere. Great personal service. Amazing wine and drink selection. Had the GNOCCHI it was AMAZING!!!! Best thing I've eaten in quite a while. Perfectly cooked, amazing mushrooms, luscious hearty cream sauce topped with cheese. Perfect execution.

This was my second time dining at Bistro le Coq but the first time eating inside. The atmosphere is very warm and welcoming and decorated tastefully a la Parisian. I started with their PEI mussels Normandine served with frites and truffle mayo. The mussels were to die for and I would have drank the sauce had I been alone. The... More

I have been 3 times to Bistro Le Coq over a period of 4 years. This says it all. IS it good_ well, it is OK. Is it bad, not really. BUT it is not a refined french food as I would expect. It is a decent place, clean, and good service. Make sure to check that the name of... More

We have been several times but don't always write about it. Great mussels to start but the charcuterie board was a disappointment. Very small and compared to Lot six down the road, a weak comparison. However, our main dishes were very good, scallops and chicken . We really like this place. The service was just okay this time as we... More

I've eaten dinner here several times and each time, I've left a little disappointed. The menu options are quite elegant and French and the wine menu is lengthy and a bit confusing. This restaurant would appeal to diners with a refined palate but there are limited vegetarian options. There is a small dessert menu but the items are tasty. The... More
