Regrettably there was only one server for the whole dining room and while the front manager helped out the service was affected. The other issue was that some of the food came out cold. This was our first not so good experience having dined here before.

Great host at the bar, he was super attentive. We had to wait for the Third Couple to arrive and the staff was very understanding. Food was very good, and service very good.

I selected this restaurant because they serve ile flottante, my favorite dessert, but the rest of the meal was fantastic. Started with a great cocktail (tequilla), and split the roast duck with my friend. It was huge and made for wonderful leftovers. The sides were flavorful, as was the salad (which I usually find boring). The service was impeccable, everyone was very nice and the waiter carefully explained the menu. We went on a rainy Tuesday night and sadly the place was nearly empty. I plan to return and hope it's still there! It was that good!

Le Coq Rico served delicious chicken (the tastiest chicken that I've ever eaten). The service was wonderful as was the ambience! We sat at the counter overlooking the kitchen and enjoyed watching the chefs preparation of the food. We truly enjoyed the experience. The whole roast chicken was superb. The only downside was the price; $120. for the chicken dish.

We went there on the first days with the new chef took over. The food was just OK not as as good as the previous chef. I don’t know if we will be coming back.

This dining experience was a real disappointment. I have been to Coq Rico several times but haven't been in for 6 months. They used to have several breeds of chicken to choose from, now there was one, the most common. Chicken was okay, not great. Celery root salad was soggy, it must have been made a few days prior. 3 bottles of wine I selected from the wine list were not available. The concept of the restaurant, poultry and game, seems to be loosing steam. Not as I remember from the early days of this restaurant.

We have been to Coq Rico several times, and returned for Valentine's dinner. After 3 conversations in which the restaurant arranged to adjust the planned fixed menu for allergies, as we began our first courses, we were told that the main course would not be possible. We instead were served half of a rotisserie chicken, delicious, but not a festive, more expensive dinner for two. Wines, not the ones listed as included, were added, nearly doubling the cost of dinner. It was disappointing. We will returned for the very good roast chicken, but with less feeling of good will.

Love it. Expensive but the food is absolutely delicious and presented beautifully. Service was excellent and the noise level isn’t bad. Best chicken for two I’ve ever had.

Out of a choice for restaurant week!?
Soup was hot, but pasta and chicken both lukewarm. Very disappointing.

We like this little place. The food especially the chicken was so nice. We enjoyed the environment and service. Restaurant week menu was also affordable. Definitely will come back again.

Shared two outstanding appetizers, but the Main, Coq au Vin, was just okay. Restaurant Week menu was limited and not particularly interesting. Music was a bit loud for lunch.

I ate from the menu on Restaurant week. The first course was good, the second mediocre. I don't know what the rest of the menu would be like but probably won't return to find out. Service, however, was very good.

The vegetarian options tasted much better than the chicken / cornish hen, which is worrisome. Maybe quality is lower during restaurant week, as this place came highly recommended for their poultry. Dessert was excellent though.

This is my 5th time at the restaurant and so far I was always VERY happy so I hope that this was a fluke.... restaurant week? We went for brunch. Two of us ordered of the menu and two ordered from the restaurant week menu. The chicken late was mediocre, my omelette was so salty I had to “dilute it” with the mushroom and spinach side. The omelette had a ton of tarragon which happens to be my least favorite herb and I wish it was mentioned in the description of the dish....Salad dressing was salty as well. The chicken burger was good, as was the cauliflower volutes. The biggest disappointment was the coq au vin..... it was dry - the sauce rescued it to some extent.....

The chicken with rice is good. We tried during NYC restaurant week. But the waitress did not allow to change the seat. They recommended us to seat on the bar seat first, which I also do not like. Food is good.

Excellent service, fantastic cocktails (try the Tarrag-Owl!).
Great prix fixe Restaurant Week lunch at $26/38. Quarter rock cornish and coq au vin perfect. Don’t miss L’ile Flottante. Love returning here.
