Our party of 6 were celebrating my daughter’s 10th birthday. Our server treated us like gold. The meals were delightful. We felt as though we had enjoyed a soirée in a magical French castle 😊
Thank you to our lovely server, as well as the crew preparing our dinner. We would recommend Bistro Le Coq (already have actually ).

Table d'hote was very good value. My only criticism was perhaps there were too many potatoes. Another vegetable would have been nice.

This is one of my very favourite, "go-to" restaurants in Halifax. It's reasonably priced and the food is always wonderful; inventive but not pretentious, delicious and properly portioned. The space and ambiance are also lovely, and the service is impeccable. My only complaint (a minor one) was that the bar no longer stocks Pernod. This struck me as very odd, given that it's a French restaurant! The wine list is also significantly diminished since my last visit, which was a bit disappointing. But all in all, excellent value and a lovely experience.

Yes, but don't order the beans and pork or seafood stew! Beans weren't cooked enough and not enough pork. Seafood was tasteless.

Even though there were only 3 tables (1 of 4, 2 of 2) seemed to take a little longer than usual. We had tickets to a play and had to return after the theatre for dessert.
We’ve eaten there several times before without a problem.
The soup du jour (cauliflower & gruyere) was terrific!

As usual for this restaurant, the food was very well prepared and presented; service was friendly without being overbearing; and, despite being seated close to a large group, we could have a conversation comfortably. In a town where restaurants sometimes pay more attention to hype than to their menu, Bistro Le Coq offers consistently high quality food in an atmosphere that makes eating there a pleasure.

Very good meal, but not generous (salads, although expensive, are very small), and very pricy for a lunch. The soup was good, but it took a very, very long time to get it, and the main courses arrived 2 minutes after, which meant everything was on the table at once... so the hamburger and fries were cold before we started eating.
Also, it was very cold in the restaurant; we all put our scarves and even coats. Not pleasant at all.
The waitress was nice and friendly.

Excellent food, good service, fair prices. We always take out-of-town visitors to Bistro Le Coq for a fine dining experience. Good value. Only negative observation was that one of the ladies mentioned that the cleanliness of the washroom could be better.

There are so many quality restaurants in Halifax, just added another to my list of favorites. I guess I was a pretty low maintenance customer, solo diner, ordered oysters and then mussels and fries, polishing them off with a nice bottle of champagne. Food was excellent, service wonderful, made for a great evening.

I was a bit disappointed when I ordered the chef's dessert and it wasn't ready yet. We asked if they had anything chocolate and they whipped up some chocolate mousse that wasn't on the menu. It was great and I was extremely impressed! We'll be back.

Key menu items, such as the lamb shank, were unavoidable. We left after drinks without ordering food.

Responded on October 30, 2019

Hi, I'm sorry to hear you were disappointed. We were out of the lamb shank on Monday evening. It was a popular item over the weekend and we braise it overnight for the best possible quality. I believe you were enjoying wine when the power went out across downtown. I'm sorry you weren't able to dine with us that night, but we'd love to have you back for what I'm certain will be a wonderful experience. Hope to see you soon!
