We just came back from a Mother's Day brunch. I had never been here before. Decor is charming. The food was very good, prices reasonable. I had the vegetarian eggs benny---yum. Steak sandwich also very good. The fresh fruit garnish and side had clearly been sitting a while-and was not impressive. To make this 5 star even in the food... More

We had a very nice after theatre dinner at the Bistro. The food was great but what made the experience even better was the friendliness and professionalism of Liz who was our server. We strongly recommend the duck confit salad. Thank you for a great evening.

We were here a few times before and always had a great meal. I enjoyed a single malt. We started with escargot and my wife had the Duck Breast and I had the strip loin. Both were cooked to perfection. Liz, our server, was attentive. She suggested the wines to match our meals. Top things off with Spanish coffees. I... More

Wonderful French decor. Truly unique in Halifax. Prices are very reasonable. Great service and special touches throughout to bring home that French feeling. Only complaint - no malt vinegar for the perfecta home fries.

I had a wonderful dinner there on Sunday night. The opening salad was fresh and delicious and the steak was perfection. It was my first time eating here and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I will definitely go back. I love the decor and the ambience and the staff was fantastic.

This has always been one of our favourites for pre-theatre dinners. However, we did notice the prices had gone up a bit since our last visit, so maybe this will have to be a 'special occasion' place. Horror upon horrors, we had to send a dish back. The halibut was way overcooked (heat-lamp perhaps??? I can't imagine any chef would... More

My husband and I had dinner at Bistro Le Coq this past Saturday with two other couples. No complaints! The food was excellent and our server was wonderful! Very knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. I would prefer a tenderloin as the cut with the steak frites, but it was cooked perfectly and flavored well.

We have subscriptions to Neptune and for the past several years have often had dinner at Bistro le Coq before the shows. Our last experience on March 3 disappointed us to such an extent we are not likely to return. For one thing, the new menu includes very dramatic price increases, to the point that they are out of line... More

We have been to this restaurant many times as a group of six prior to the theatre, and have found it to be mostly good. However, our last visit (and it will likely be our last visit),our party were surprised to see that their prices had gone up a good deal. The food was fine, although quite modest in portion,...

I ordered the Steak Frites, at $32., because the waitress described how this was a particularly good cut of beef, cut fresh today. It was expensive, but I felt like splurging. What a shame! The steak was over-cooked - I'd asked for medium rare - and it was tough. If I'd ordered this meal for $15 elsewhere, I might not... More
