Amazing food and wonderful service. The seats and tables are uncomfortable ... The noise level is ideal. You can have a conversation and hear your companions.
The beat poultry you will ever taste, and everything else is excellent as well.
Sit at counter to watch and talk to chefs. Very friendly. Excellent evening
Loved the food
Excellent food. Great wine list. Great ambience and service. Perhaps I underrated it a bit, but hard to know if all of the choices were as good as ours, so I hesitate to rate it higher.
The Chef's Specialty was delicious. However, the climax of the dinner was the desserts. I usually don't order dessert because my stomach has no room for something overly sweet, dough with fatty cream after a delicious savory meal.
The millefeuille was great! The pastry looks like baguette. However, when bite into it, it was crispy, layers of thin dough. The custard cream was not fatty, slightly sweet. I enjoyed every bite.
The I'ile Flottante was even more amazing. The soft meringue under a thin layer of caramel was so airy, soft, not too sweet. Nonetheless, it was rich in floavor. I love it.
A great place ! Great food and service !!
Best desserts ! Profiteroles a must !
Foie gras was excellent !
This is a rare outstanding restaurant!
Not good service at all for a restaurant who wants to have the illusion that can be really competitive at this high menu price. Although the food is very good.
Amazing dining experience and great food
Super agréable & délicieux poulet. Service un peu mélangeant, mais attentionné.
We sat at the Kitchen table. Everything was so delicious. It was fun watching and chatting with the chefs.
Our first time here and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s special to discover a restaurant that specializes in one thing. Everything was well executed.
Delicious food and pleasant service. The back room was noisy, so we sat in the passageway by the wine racks.
Amazing food. Great concept. Will go back!
We were in from out of town and a friend recommended the restaurant. We are so happy we went!! Everything was phenomenal. We sat at the chefs table and it was so neat to watch everything getting prepared. Everyone speaks French for the most part but if you can get around a French accent you’ll be fine. Definitely recommend this place! We will definitely be back!!
Très superbe! Everything we ordered was perfect.. the chicken, the morel gravy, the leeks... incroyable. A very special meal.
This Restaurant is delicious !! Love the ambiance and the service is impeccable!! One of my favorite places in NYC!!
Delicious and very attentive staff
Great all around
Delicious fresh for gras. Served on apple slices that were too thick though. Leeks vinaigrette are always a winner. The squab was cooked to perfection as was the chicken with morels. The sauce was to die for, as was the vanilla mille feuilles as always a treat. We were sad to see very few people at the food bar.
Excellent - seems like a simple roasted chicken but it's so much more - starting with only the best ingredients and prepared to perfection. Desserts were outstanding. Only problem is they don't know how to make a cup of tea...
They ran out of foie gas in the middle of day. Disappointed
The Prices are higher than most. The food is Great!! The Service is Great! It always feels like a Special Night at Le Coq Rico.
Next time we will have whole bird
Dessert was delicious
Wait staff were great
This was our third time at Le Coq Rico and it was as wonderful as the first two times. The food was expertly prepared and the service was impeccable. We had a member of our party with a food allergy and the restaurant could not be more accommodating.
Second time here. The first time we had the chef’s specialty. It was incredible. This time we ordered two different individual chicken entrees. The dishes were delicious but my meal was not hot. I was reluctant to send it back and create a scene. We thoroughly enjoyed the potato purée side dish. The Frenchie Bellini with peach and lavender in champagne was incredible. The dessert - a strawberry soufflé with strawberry sorbet was amazing. The finale was an espresso martini. Had the dishes been served hot - I would have rated the restaurant higher. Our server- Elana was wonderful.
Head mgr Anthony makes dining welcoming and comfortable with his nice attitude and compassion for quality ingredients.
If you like chicken this is the place to go! We enjoyed the duck rilletes to start and the french fries were outstanding. We had two orders of the quarter chicken menu option and it was the perfect amount of food. Great wine list.
Amazing in every way. Delicious food and wonderful staff. Was planning a return trip before dessert.
They lost our reservation but otherwise it was good.
What the cluck! It ain't your mama's fried chicken. It ain't Auntie Tillie's chicken coquettes. It ain't chicken like anybody else does chicken. Quite simply, Le Coq Rico does chicken GREAT!!!
My second visit to what is the undisputed best poultry in the city. And many things went perfect but some fell flat. We love the brune landaise their signature bird. It’s amazing. We started with leeks vinaigrette and seared foie gras which were both beyond amazing. Then had a quarter bird and the lobster vola vent. The bird was again great but the lobster tasted less than fresh the sauce lacked flavor and the button mushrooms in it were ghetto. I was so disappointed this man makes amazing food, why would he even give this menu option over all the other great stuff. I lived with it but resented it. I would go back a thousand times armed with this knowledge. Finished with the giant milliefuille.
Chef/owner here had a three star in Strasbourg for many years and just wanted to prepare great food and not chase stars. He succeeded. This has become one of our favorite restaurants. Succulent chicken of every variety. Perfect salads including one with gizzards (chicken, of course). Try it!! Desserts out of sight. Can't decide whether our favorite is floating island or mille feuille. Why not have both?
Marvelous meal, perfect service, definitely a favorite.
Chef Antoine Westermann offers fowl and little else in a variety of dishes, all of which are good and some of which are extraordinary. My wife and I live nearby, and thank goodness. Le Coq Rico is one of our favorites.
Superb meal, excellent knowledgeable, helpful service. Their puff pastry caps it off in the grandest style.
I was in the Paris restaurant just 3 months ago and this is on par. Service was excellent with wonderful suggestions. The full meal was wonderful.Highly recommend and less jet lag !
