Great place. Food is on point, and the service is excellent. If you are a lover of roast chicken, you should not miss Le Coq Rico when you find yourself in NYC.

Le Coq Rico is outstanding as usual.

This time I went with a friend who spent years in France during childhood. She said it brought back all good childhood memories about France. The environment is warm and just like family.

Wine there is outstanding. A young Chablis, in my opinion, outperforms other same-level Cali Chardonnay in both standalone and meal-pairing perspectives.

The service has gotten so bad here that our most recent meal will be our last. The food remains mostly good, but the dining room is chaos. Our meal was a comedy of errors complete with cold food, wrong/forgotten orders, staggered food delivery, disappearing waitstaff, missing utensils and long waits. And all of this occurred with us being the only customers in the restaurant (perhaps that should have been a warning). Although they comp'd a round of drinks after we complained to the manager, there was no explanation or apology offered. It would seem the departure of Antoine Westermann has had a negative impact. There are too many great restaurants in this city to put up with this poor level of service. Too bad, it was once one of our favorite restaurants.

I really wanted this to be my new favorite place. But after the 3rd time there, I realize the service is just not going to improve. :( Very disappointing. The food overall is quite good, although the sides are incredibly overpriced. $14 for literally a tiny portion (maybe a cup?) of soggy vegetables!! Apparently the potato puree is similar sized. I was truly shocked. We sat down and asked for a cocktail. The guy said our server would be over. 10 minutes later, our server came and took our drink order, which arrived just fine. But then, each and every time we wanted something, we had to flag him down - and that sometimes took awhile. Another glass of wine? Wait and flag. Dessert & coffee? Wait and flag. The check came with alacrity, though! Early in our dinner we observed multiple staff chatting, not looking at the dining room. Overall, I WANT to like this place but between the prices and the service - just not happening.

I was looking forward to my dinner. Everything seem find. Waiter very polite taking my order. But during dinner the waiter never came back . He disappeared. I never saw him afterward. Finally another wait person showed up. I asked what happen the other person. He didn't know.

Food was ok. Nothing spectacular. After paying my check i asked receptionist what happened. I guess he walked out during service and quit...lol.

Very good -- interesting menu--great service, not intrusive.
Nice reasonably priced cocktails.
"Bird" oriented with heavy emphasis on duck, which was excellent.
The entire meal plus two cocktails was quite reasonable for the city, thus---good value for what you receive.

This is a very badly managed restaurant which is rescued from its turmoil and horrible service by genuinely great chicken.

This is overall one of my new favorites! Unfortunately, this time I wasn't that happy with the MOST expensive dish on the menu - the $140 chicken for 4. It was OK, but the chicken quarter was much more tnder and flavorful. The dish we had was more of a stew and the chicken skin was rubbery and just odd. Stick with the roasted chicken and you will have a wonderful meal.

It was excellent in all ways, of course it was very quiet as it was a busy summer week. The dishes were excellent and our waitor was very personable and likeable and professional.
The only negative is that I would prefer to have my salad in a separate bowl from my delicious chicken.

The food and service at Coq Rico remain very good, bit the noise level in the dining room was awful. We were four people and we couldn't hear each other talk. As former regulars we won't be returning any time soon.

Meal was mediocre. If this is one of the best chicken dishes around, I guess chicken can only taste so good compared to other proteins. Might come back to check out the happy hour.

wow, we love dining out and don't mind spending money, but this was THE most expensive restaurant we have ever been to. We had the poultry burger and it was so so. Luckily we went during restaurant week. I can't see spending $85 for a cornish hen.

I’ve been to Le Coq Rico many times and I am never ever let down, from the warm welcome to the outstanding food and the friendly service. Wine choices are very well thought through, and whether you want to splurge or just get a reasonably priced bottle, there’s always something right to go with your meal. Do not miss the foie gras, la brune Landaise, or the back-in-old Paris frites. I’ll be back. Thank you, Eric, Luca, and the entire team.

I returned to Le Coc Rico during Restaurant Week after having had a nice birthday dinner there a couple of years ago. The Restaurant Week menu, unlike many other restaurants that simplify the menu or do a special menu that isn’t always exciting, had nice selections and wine specials, too. My lunch companion and I each did a two course menu and shared an à la carte appetizer. There was a delicious corn velouté as a starter. We both had the toast chicken. I did miss the amazing pommes de terre, but their excellent L’Île Flottante more than made up for it. It was as delicious as I remembered from my birthday dinner.
