Wonderful as always. Food is consistent. Been there multiple times and never disappointed. A unique restaurant for NYC. We first became acquainted with the chefs restaurants in France.

The menu had changed since my last visit, and the options seemed more limited, but the food is still amazing and the service is impeccable. If you are just 2 people, try sitting at the counter looking into the cooking area. One dish you must not miss is the leaks with hollandaise - this is one of the few restaurants that knows how to do the sauce right!!

Food was pretty good. Server was very good. Atmosphere very sterile. Then we were pushed out of the restaurant as quickly as possible - when we came back from the restroom (after paying our bill but not leaving) our belongings had been removed from our table and people were sitting in our seats. We had to retrieve our things in the bar area. That was just rude, stupid, annoying and inconsiderate. Will not ever return or recommending Le Coq RIco to anyone.

Went for New Years Eve dinner and enjoyed the experience. I am looking forward to returning for dinner again. It was a Prix Fixe dinner and the only issue I had was that there wasn't a choice for each course. So if you didn't like one of the courses you were out of luck except for the main course.

I want to make this my weekly Friday night restaurant rotation. I love their food. They are known for their poultry, but everything else is delicious and the staff are amazing. The poultry dishes are full of flavor and their skin is so crispy. The whole bird comes with it's own jous but try their morel sauce. It has chunk of morels in it. So good. I need to go back to try their duck.

Super place. Food, cocktails and service are all great. Ordered 2 different kinds of chicken and they were very different but equally good. One mostly had white meat and one mostly dark. Recommend going that route.

Very disappointing overall experience. Was looking forward to the experience but did not live up to the expectation. Overpriced Christmas menu with few selections. Waited more than 45 mns for appetizer to show up even though the menu was limited. The side vegetables were forgotten and had to remind the waiter that they had been ordered. Came as we were almost done. Would not repeat.

My wife and I went there on Christmas Day where a special prix fixe menu was in effect, and we did so on purpose as we are wanted roast goose (not available on the regular menu). And it was fantastic, not just the goose but the whole three (or four -- depending on how you count) course menu with a wine matching available. Just perfect. Attentive and friendly service, but not overbearing. Nice cultivated ambiance. Pure pleasure all around.
We will definitely return to check out the regular menu.

The food and wine were great, though a bit salty for our taste. We were seated at the counter facing the street and it was nice to have more space rather than being at the bar facing the kitchen.

Unfortunately, Le Coq Rico has declined recently. Service is not what it should be and the food is less, too. The staff is lovely and try very hard to please, but something is off. We've gone here many times, but this was not comparable to the others.

Dined here a year ago and it was pitch perfect. Naturally, looked forward to returning. Ate at counter this year. It started well but went quickly downhill. This year was VERY disappointed in the service. Meal arrived before finished cocktail then hardly saw server again (and ONLY by request). One example - ordered scoop of ice cream after meal - took 20 + mins to arrive & was partly melted. When commented to waiter, he shrugged & said “its hot down there”. Not the response one hopes for.

I was disappointed in the roast chicken. It was a little bit tough - have had better at less expensive restaurants. The restaurant itself is very nice and the servers were very attentive. Also had the meringue dessert which wasn't as good as some have described.

Always loved dining at Le Coq Rico. Food and service always consistently good.
One setback this time was we sat right in front of the 2 rotisserie ovens at the counter and it was HOT. Very very hot. Our wine turned warm mid-way through the meal. If you can, avoid sitting in those seats.

Found this on a top French restaurant list in NYC. Would NOT recommend. This is only poultry/mainly chicken based dishes. We got a whole bird to share and it was extremely chewy / stringy and not tender. I've had a lot of chicken and usually enjoy ordering them, but in this instance it was very dry and unpleasant to eat. For the $ we are paying, I'd much rather go anywhere else.

We arrived on time and waited for about an hour. The maitre d did not acknowledge this, even when we asked them they were completely unapologetic. They finally brought us champagne as we waited but only after a pretty intense stare down. When we finally sat, our main courses took another hour+ to arrive.

We had a great experience despite the fact that we were made to wait almost 30 minutes for our table. The manager was very nice, but she would have made us feel better if she ordered us a round of drinks or complimentary desserts as a gesture of apology. The only other demerit was the music playing — very 80s and very loud.

Delicious meal. Only complaint is the risotto that was presented as a special side dish for the evening when going over the menu came with a $60 charge! Blew us away when I already ordered an appetizer and the $72 stuffed chicken for 2. It was good risotto but not $60 good imo.

Delicious chicken. Yes It's a chicken house. Tho I did not come here that. I came here for the "seared Foie Gras". Sounds unusual but it was darn delicious. Sat on the counter and I could see the chef preparing my appetizer for me.
It was one of the Best Foie gras I have ever had. Tho I was not a fan of the Apple. When I had called they told me it was peaches and almonds. Online it said peaches and hazelnuts. When I arrived it ended up being apples and almonds. If the apples had been poached I think it would go better with the dish as there were too many crunchy elements in the dish.
Overall it was still a great dish minus the apples. Will definitely come back next time I'm in NYC!

Come here for poultry, even if you don't like birds, come here and you'll learn to love a properly prepared bird. We had their chicken for two with morel sauce, which was way too much and we had left over. We also had the deviled eggs and duck liver terrine and both were delicious. The eggs had a right amount of acid that complemented the eggs well. The terrine was wrapped in pastry, which made it even more rich. We were looking forward to strawberry souffle, but it wasn't offered tonight, we had the passion fruit souffle instead. Very good, a little too sweet for me but definitely packed with passion fruit flavor.

Would love to go back for more.

Staff and service were just right.
