I had a fantastic food experience!!! I know Maurizio and I have been following him since Cut, then Indigo and now Coq D’Argent. With this food and his knowledge this restaurant deserves at least two Michelin 🌟🌟. Well done to who hired Maurizio. I will be back in Manchester with unforgettable moments and memories

Very disappointed in the quality of the food. Had the burrata as a starter and it was dense and not at all creamy. The rest of the food also lacked refinement. The only saving grace was the very friendly waiter and the view.

Service was a bit slow, restaurant was busy and too much going on staff seemed overwhelmed, the lift was not working so we had to wait for one in the back. Food is good but many other locations in London have similar food and better service, outside area is nice, maybe I would consider going back but maybe just to go to the bar.

Excellent restaurant. Sommelier, very attentive. Server was very attentive but then as her load increased she became less visible and service quality decreased. Our plates took more than 20 minutes to clear after finishing. That said, the food itself was excellent. Starters or foie gras and tortellini with truffles were outstanding and well cooked. The chateaubriand was cooked perfectly and served beautifully. Compared to Ramsay's Bread Kitchen, this restaurant is MUCH better. Go here for high quality food and an excellent wine list.

I am still a little confused on what to say. I went with my friend for a meal and although I have left a note that she is pregnant and she should be well treated that wan not taken care of.
We had a table that access was annoying, we quested a still water we had sparking - we did not object- but still..
the service was not great and attention to detail was next to absent. I was looking forward to having a great experience but unfortunately it was not the case.
We also have been charged for cover and mental health matters, things like that should be discussed first before you charge your client for it.
Whether I come back to the same place???? I am not sure

Had a wonderful evening with my family, including small children and hard of hearing grandparents. It was perfect for everyone : interesting enough for the children, quiet enough for the seniors and delicious enough for everyone. The service was excellent, attentive without being overbearing.

I've enjoyed visiting Coq D'Argent over the years for drinks and dinner. However, last week's visit was so poor that I not sure that I shall ever go back.
We arrived early for dinner and our table was not ready so we were offered a drink at the bar, no problem. However, when it came to ordering and paying we seemed to cause confusion by ordering drinks directly at the bar and then asking for the drinks to be added to the table bill. Four different members of staff became involved and I was ready for another drink by the time they had finished their discussion. We were shown to our table and sat down and here the truly poor service took hold.
Waiting for a menu, over five minutes.
Ordering a drink five minutes with a subsequent ten minute wait to be brought the wrong drinks.
In the mean time, served bread and butter which was devoured quickly - hungry people at this stage.
Ordered food after 20 mins (one starter and two mains and glasses of wine to match)
More bread arrived - had to ask for more butter multiple times
First glasses of wine arrive and then nothing for over 25 mins until after 45 mins we had had enough and asked for the bill. The waiter was incredulous that we wanted to leave and also demanded we stayed. We stood to leave and then bill for drinks was presented (with service charge) and was incorrect. Cue another few minutes of waiting for this to be corrected and service charge removed. We then left and based on last night we can not honestly say we will be returning despite many years of patronage.

I love the restaurant so, hate to slam it a little but, today we suffered the unfortunately relatively popular experience of being completely forgotten about beyond the main dish arriving.
We asked a different waiter for the bill and the dessert menu turned up 5 minutes later.
Bit of a shame..... Food very good and up to its usual standards though

Such poor service! We visited on a Thursday evening at 7pm - waited thirty minutes just to get the wine menu and then a further 10 mins to order food, and the rest of the evening just went downhill from there. Every time we tried to catch a waiter’s attention they’d look away and scurry off. Food was OK, but the service let the whole experience down. Won’t be returning here.

I picked this restaurant to bring vip clients to lunch as I had visited before and was keen to impress them. What a mistake it was a catalogue of bad service from start to end. First we waited for our table, no big deal even though we were a few mins late but 6 standing in a cramped doorway isn’t a good start. Next we were shown to our table and drinks ordered. These took an age to arrive. Our food was then ordered and 15 mins later we were told that what half our party had ordered was gone and we could have a prawn cocktail instead. Why did the waiting staff not know this before we ordered? I expect this in Garfunkel’s not a fine dining establishment. Anyhoo starting to get a bit uneasy now as my boss is glaring at me as I had been the one to insist on coming here. The wine finally arrives which we had to pour ourselves, ditto the water. No bread was offered until the starters had already arrived and no butter either. The starters came out in twos instead of all together and The amuse bouche also arrived after the starters. We ordered more drinks and they took another twenty mins despite the place being almost empty now. The mains arrived finally - well four of the six did, two of our clients waited a good ten mins before there food followed and they urged the rest to start without them. The lamb was chewy 4 of a party of 6 did not enjoy it and the tuna was unimpressive. This may all seem petty but you pay a premium for the service and food and I honestly left embarrassed and with the impression the staff here did not care if we were satisfied. I would go as far as saying the service was appalling and very badly coordinated. I won’t return to this restaurant and will think twice about another DAndD.

This remains an attractive room especially on a sunny day whether inside or outside. The food is of a reasonably high standard without being remarkable and the wine list offers satisfactory choices at various price levels. Service seems a little stretched and can therefore be a little patchy. Overall a pleasant lunch spot.

A fantastic evening at Coq d’Argent, having only decided to go there on the spur of the moment. Thank you to Open Table and Coq d’Argent for fitting us in.
Service was fantastic and given that it was later in the evening and there was a spare table next to us, they let us sit side by side rather than across the table; it can get quite loud at times due to the glazed walls but then again, that’s what makes the restaurant so stunning on a light, sunny evening!
Food was fantastic and my girlfriend absolutely loved it, having never previously eaten there.
We’ll be back again soon!

A lovely evening with cocktails on the rooftop veranda and good meal from the set menu in the restaurant.
My only criticism would be the service. Whilst fine initially, this got gradually worse as the time it took between courses and to get the bill to pay got longer and longer.
I understand not wanting to be too 'in your face' but it should not take over 3 hours for a 3 course meal for 2.
