Le Coq Rico
Le Coq rico offers multiple seating areas, each of which, offer a unique style of dining. Our wine hall sits directly across from our wine tower, allowing one to peruse our library of both French and American wines chosen specifically to compliment the cuisine of our chef. We have our main dining room in the center of the restaurant. And, for those who would like a "bird's eye view" of the kitchen, we offer our chef's counter.

I recommend this special and unique opportunity to dine-out. Menu has recently be diversified.
Très bien. Excellent cuisine et personnel vhsrmsnt
We loved the food but I must say that the staff and manager are the reason why we will return to this restaurant. We were about ten years older than the other patrons and one of us had bad knees. The high tables simply didn’t work. The delightful manager and staff handled our request to change tables ( something I dread doing) with charm and sophistication. Oh and the cocktails particularly the one with turmeric and gin was a bubbly festival of flavors. Delicious. Thank you.
It's clear that Le Coq Rico is going downhill without the supervision of Antoine Westerman. In a dozen subtle ways, this restaurant is slowly failing. I will not be back.
We returned on a normal night after our visit on Christmas Day last year and it was just as good as we had hoped for. Excellent food -- especially if you are into poultry: the slow cooked duck leg is phenomenal. Also one of the few restaurants which have roasted goose on their regular menu (we had it for Christmas -- stunning). Interesting wine list, including Alsatian Pinot Noir which went great with the duck leg. Attentive service without being overbearing. So much better value than most of the midtown places.
Brunch was surprisingly quiet but everything else was great
Over priced chewy and dry chicken
Excellent food and service. Ordered the whole bird, it was very large and there were lots of leftovers to take home. We appreciated being given the carcass to pick through! Desserts were generous and delicious, best passionfruit souffle we've ever eaten!
The meal was wonderful. We had sunny side eggs with truffles - scrumptious - and the jersey giant chicken. This was my 2nd time at LCR and I brought along my 15 year old and he loved it. The morel sauce was amazing and so were the french fries. We had the merengue desert and that too was wonderful.
Sitting at the counter allowed us to watch the line cooks - when I asked the waiter for salt, before he could return with a small container and spoon, the line chef had sprinkled salt on the eggs.
This place is wonderful. HIGHLY recommend!
This restaurant has changed. The principal owner has left as has the chef.
The egg meurette which used to be outstanding was just adequate. The egg had been poached before and was cold and flavorless. The wine sauce was unfocused and bland.
The chicken was tasteless and over poached. The fries were still good.
Ike flottante was still excellent.
The service was awful.
Where before they had a charming French maitre d' and a sommelier, this waiter was coarse and rushed us along although the place was 2/3 full. He interrupted our conversation to ask if we were ready to order. All of the waiters stood around speaking to each other, loud enough to hear.
I used to love eating here and have been many times. The food was excellent and the place was not stuffy. I liked the service.
This could be my last time.
Delicious, perfectly cooked “pedigreed” chicken. The best we’ve ever had outside of France.
In the US, the steak house is ubiquitous with fine dining. Here we are introduced to exactly how fine fine dining can be with poultry. And it can be very fine indeed. From the selection of species to the age and method for raising, to the meticulous methods for preparation and roasting, to the exquisite accompaniments, Le Coq Rico is a shining star in a constellation of fine dining options in New York.
The food was good and the service was attentive. It was quite expensive for a chicken dinner-an excellent chicken dinner to be sure but a chicken dinner nonetheless.
What was once a wonderful restaurant with good food is now mediocre. Dry chicken , an appetizer of leeks that is now 1/4 size from what it was. Very sad.
Wonderful experience. Food was delicious and staff was very accommodating. Even the bartender had spot-on recommendations. Cocktails were great as well. Overall, terrific experience. Oh, and the ambience was very nice as well.
My second time there. $102 for the Landaise chicken? Totally overrated and overpriced.
Good service and price. Short choice for wine by the glass. Food OK. a bot much of curry in my main plat.
Good sommelier. Eric.
I have eaten here many times for lunch and dinner. The food and service have always been very good. This time I was here for lunch and ordered the chicken Caesar salad. The salad was mostly romaine lettuce with a very small amount of chicken. For $19 this seems like a very poor value.
Third time at Le Coq Rico. We started with a delicious Duck Rilettes, then we got a bird. The birds are always cook perfectly (we've tried one different each time) and the side of mashed potatoes is really good. We tried for the first time a table in the dining room and it was too loud, we didn't enjoy the experience and we definitively prefer the kitchen counter spot. For the dessert we had the millefeuille and the caramel ice cream which were disappointing. The millefeuille puff pastry was mediocre, and the diplomate cream was lacking of aroma, plus there were ice crystals in the scoop of ice cream.
$80+ for a whole rotisserie chicken was a bit much. The veggie side was small and wasn’t anything special for $13. Food was ok and not worth the price.
We had a reservation but they still kept us waiting for 30 minutes, promising that the table would be ready in minutes. And they didn’t even apologize for that but kept blaming other customers, saying that it was just them not leaving.
Even though the food is good (but not irreplaceable), I won’t recommend any friend to come.
I have waited forever to eat here. It was worth the wait.
As always. The food and service impeccable
Service was TERRIBLE. Waiter seemed, at best, indifferent. Had dinner there 2X last year. This year food wasn't good. Food sent back to be cooked properly, entrees okay. Will not go back.
Amazing experience. Excellent food and great service.
The table was much too small for 6 people so we were not comfortable. The reservation was made weeks in advance so we should have been properly seated. In addition the dark meat of the chicken was chewy and hard to eat.
For the food & atmosphere this restaurant did not disappoint! However when we asked to be moved from a high traffic area table- it seems to be an inconvenience for our host. I felt like we were punished by being placed in a table with 5 inches between our neighbor table & a man on the right whose chair hit our table. Space could better be thought of when visiting this restaurant. I didn’t come with strangers I wanted to just eat with my husband.
Small choice but everything done well.
This was overpriced, overhyped and not worth the trip. The chicken was not even close to how good Zacharian said it was and it was expensive. The terrine was fair, but it was the thinnest slice I have ever seen and priced incredibly high. The best part were the seasonal vegetables, and if that is the high point we’ve got a problem.
Great chicken, friendly server.
Chicken, potato puree, and mushroom/ spinach fricassee are delicious. I also had the soft boiled duck egg appetizer, which was incredible- unctuous!
The food was very good, but some things were better than others. The sautéed leeks were very good but not warmed thought so there were warm and cold spots in the leeks. The hollandaise sauce was one of the best I have has in many years. The duck rillette was also very good but served too cold. I would have expected to be served closer to room temp, but it was as cold as if it has come right out the refrigerator. We shared the Plymouth Rock whole bird. The salad and the au jus that came with the chicken were very good and the chicken itself was excellent. We were up sold on morel sauce that was fine but not better and the au jus that came with the bird. We sat at a counter in the open kitchen area and I liked seeing the food prep. The service was good, but it is hard to serve and clear at counter when all of the food is served from behind at a full counter. The good news was that the bus servers and waiters seem to handle this well. We will be back.
Beautiful restaurant, but it's hard to find parking nearby. More importantly, this is great food with great service. I've never had an aged noble bird before---it's an experience everyone should have. Had the Rohan duck, potato puree with truffles, leeks, foie gras terrine--the latter two were described as award winning dishes. They were all award winning in my opinion! Profiteroles and vanilla millefuite for dessert were simply awesome. The bloody mary was really good. My gf said it was the "best lunch in my life!" I'm pretty sure it was mine too! I tried to stay on budget by only getting a bird and a drink to keep it around $125 with tip, but forget it---once you hear and smell the menu, budget goes out the window. Leonardo was our waiter, and he was fantastic. My only regret was that I left with leftovers, but when I got to the Broadway show, I learned the hard lesson that food/leftovers are not allowed to be brought in. I really wanted to eat duck the next day....Anyway, highly recommend this place. I wish I could go for lunch and dinner--now that would be a decadent day!
Great time and great service all wrapped up by amazing food as well 👍🏽👍🏽
We had decided to come back for the chicken and dessert we had previously enjoyed when we first visited Le Coq Rico during the Summer of 2017. However, this time the quality and experience of the chicken and dessert was disappointing. Meat was dry and flavor was unremarkable. The signature dessert had shrunk in size. It was not as round and full in form, and the texture was too firm. I distinctly remember how impressed I was when I first had the Ile Flottante. The elegant, almost perfectly formed large sphere appeared to float on the creme anglaise. When the spoon hit the sphere it cut through effortlessly as if passing through a delicate airy cloud. This time however, the meringue was more like a small mound set into a pool of the creme. The spoon bounced back a bit due to a more firm and dense texture.
We were so looking forward to our lunch today but in the end left disappointed.
Highly recommend this restaurant. Went during restaurant week so the offerings were very limited (no appetizers i would eat so i was forced to order dessert). Great service and ambience and although it was very busy, still easy to carry on a conversation.
Fantastic food. Best chicken IN THE WORLD!
Overpriced and underwhelmed.
When we arrived with a reservation there were only front of house or bar in front of kitchen available. We chose the bar for a change but unfortunately it meant that service was not as reliable - i.e. waiter was not around as much . We tried the Coq au vin. The chicken was dry and under seasoned. Bummer.
Only minus was that the heat was not working so restaurant was freezing cold
