Big Disappointment

After going to Coq d?Or last weekend on a girls? getaway with my best friend I made a mental note: If reviews of a place are from several years ago take them with a grain of salt! I don?t know Chicago well and don?t know anyone who lives in the area so CitySearch was what I relied on in choosing a jazz bar. Big mistake! Usually CitySearch reviews are quite reliable and I am sure the ones below were also written with honesty and good intentions, which leaves the only explanation that this place must have changed ownership and/or management. Coq D?Or is quite an ordinary bar with very low ceilings and unfriendly staff. We dealt with two waiters during our brief stay neither of whom was capable of smiling. I had a French martini ($12.50) that had no alcohol in it. I think they add something bitter to it to give the false taste of alcohol because I am a light-weight and drink rarely; and after downing the whole glass I didn?t even get a buzz. I am very disappointed with this place and would not recommend it to anyone. I am giving two stars only because I save one star to a place where apple martini has a razor in it.

BEST Martini in town

Coq d'Or most certainly has the best martini in town. You might think the price is a little steep but it's actually 1.5 martinis.

The bartender is quite knowledgeable on vodkas and just makes a killer Martini. And the bites are good too.

Atmosphere is a little stodgy and grandpa-ey, but it's worth it for the drink.

Excellent Martini

I sampled a Red Apple Martini and it was excellent.
My bartender was Hana and she was very pleasant and funny.
I enjoyed my visit to Coq d'Or and I can understand why its been in business for 70 years!
Best Wishes for many more years!

Good Times

Bombay Sapphire Martini is the greatest I have had. My wife tried a Drake Kiss and loved it. I found this bar an interesting surprize and was able to feel at ease and welcome with the personal service we received. This bar deserves the best martini and actually the best bartender too!

Best Late Night Dining

Best Hamburger ever, after a night at the Lyric Opera its the best cozy, friendly, clean, inexpensive bar in town with the live music creating a wonderful atmosphere. Its my home away from home. The servers and bartenders are so welcoming. I think the Coq d'Or is the best hidden secret in Chicago.

Great service

There is always a warm friendly welcome at the Coq d'Or. It's the home of the Executive 4oz martini, and there is a great happy hour from 5pm-7pm daily. Live entertainment, good drinks and good company make this a great place to be. The menu is not expensive and the service is top notch!

Best Bar in Chicago

The Coq d'Or is a wonderful restaurant with food served daily from 11am until 12 midnight. The menu caters to all tastes. 4oz martinis are traditional, Guinness & Bass on tap, Jesse Trepinski was recently voted one of teh top servers in Chicago and Christine Morris has been serving with a smile with the last 18 years. The Coq d'Or offers Live music nightly and serves the best burger in the city! For a fun time with good food music and drink come in to the Coq d'Or

Best Afterwork Drinks

Nothing better to escape afterwork, relax and chat. Irish lady with her staff will ensure that we feel more then welcome. They are so nice and friendly. Personaly I love that international flavor of their staffing.
