I had a very enjoyable evening here. Food, service and ambience was very good. We opted for the set menu as the items individually cost as much as the 3 courses!

Top cooking level: i cna recommend the foie gras for starters and the souris d'agneau for main. Evrytbody at my table was satisfied.

We have visited Coq d'Argent many times but this time I am compelled to write a rave review. So often at very popular restaurants on busy nights service suffers and sometimes the food can disappoint but not at the Coq d'Argent!

I have been very pleased with my last visit. As a constant client of this restaurant, I know what to expect. Last time, a waiter managed to make my dinner pretty awful by not getting the right orders, forgetting details etc..all things that cannot happen in such a restaurant. However, the manager together with another lovely waiter was able to... More

Coq D'Argent is an old favourite located on the rooftop many floors above Bank station. I loved Lodge D'Argent a part of the restaurant kitted out to feel like a ski lodge including animal hides on the seats - simply fabulous!

I went for lunch on 8th of February for my birthday and it is always pleasantly surprising how the novelty of this restaurant never wears off: from menu to ambience and ever so courteous staff, it is always refreshing.

There may be more expensive restaurants in London; there may be more "celebrity" type restaurants in London however, Coq D'Argent beats them all. The food is excellent, the service sublime and if you get a table on the terrace - the view can be spectacular (especially in summer at sunset). This is one of the (very) few restaurants we "dress"... More

Great location, great food and great service. Consistently good. If the weather is good there is an opportunity to sit outside, either on the balconies by the restaurant or the larger space overlooking the Bank of England.

Recently attended a business dine here with approximately 15 people. The service throughout was excellent. Food was good but even though I like smaller portions, these were very small.....most Americans would look at the entrees as appetizers. The food itself was excellent and the presentation was very nice. Good wine list as well.

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhoods. 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 neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of 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.
