My husband I went to Le Coq Au Vin for a romantic dinner. Everything we had was wonderful - my husband had the signature dish and it very flavorful. Service was good. It's a bit pricey, but definitely worth it.

I recently went to Le Coq au Vin to celebrate my anniversary. The restaurant has wonderful ambiance, and the service was great. It was my first time going there, although I have lived in Orlando my entire life. Everything we ordered was amazing, but my favorite thing was the Cassoulet...simply amazing. I highly recommend this place for special occasions, as it is a bit pricey, but well worth it!

Le Coq Au Vin is a great little French restaurant with fresh food that is always tasty. The recipes taste authentic and the dish for which the restaurant is named is also quite good.

Over the past 15 years I have dined at Le Coq au Vin over a dozen times, and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience every single visit. It is the only place in Orlando that I feel extremely confident in recommending to friends, family, and business associates, knowing they will have a wonderful experience.

First of all, it is such a warm, quaint building and Magdalena (co-owner with her chef husband Luis) greets you warmly and welcomes you to her restaurant. You feel as if you are going to a friend's aunt's house. The atmosphere is condusive for a fun night with several couples, friends (have had girl's nights, baby showers here), as well as those wonderful, inimate romantic dinners.

Everything I have ever ordered at Le Coq au Vin has been wonderfully prepared and every bite savored and enjoyed. My favorite is the eggplant dish that is topped with large prawns and big chunks of delicious crab meat and is drizzled perfectly with a spicy, flavorful cajun hollandaise sauce. Small potatoes with a bit of creme fraiche and caviar are served on the side with the most wonderful cooked carrots (how do they do that to a carrot?) and green beans. The escargot makes your eyes roll back into your head with the pleasure of the savory garlic sauce surrounding them. I love to start the meal with a gruyere souffle....so nice, light, and tastey....just amazing with a good wine (they are well versed in how to suggest a wine for you....or bring your own favorite bottle [small corking fee]) and their delicious French bread.

Do not forget to order your souffles (either appetizer or dessert...or both!) right when you arrive as they take quite a while prepare/cook.

Our last visit I went with a couple of smokers who would step outside to sit on the porch tables in between courses. Each time, Magdalena would come and get us letting us know the next course was waiting for us.....just like a good aunt would do!

Cons: Wish it was closer to my house in Dr. Phillips! LOL

Enjoy Le Coq Au Vin with family and friends or as a romantic date with that special someone. The food is divine! Be sure to ask for your creme brule when you order your meal. They are made to order and delicious!

We just returned from a very disappointing dinner at this restaurant. We have visited over the years and have alwaysleft very satisfied. Tonight was different. The service was fine until the latter portion of our evening. All of a sudden we were forgotton. No sign of our waiter anywhere. Only the busboy cleaning the tables in our now deserted dining room. Other parties were still enjoying their dinners in the other two dining rooms obviously reserved for regular patrons. Our special dessert, a souffle, was ordered intentionally early since the preparation took longer. We were never served. Our dinner selections were allright. My halibut was a little overdone crusted with burned cheese. The waiter didn't know this as he never came by to check. Anyway, my husband's lamb was fine. The steak tar tar was spicy but appreciated. I'm going backwards here. The review stands at average. I am so happy to return to the excellent restaurants in the Winter Park area. I missed them tonight.

My husband and I dined at Le Coq Au Vin for the first time last night to celebrate our Anniversary. We arrived earlier than we made reservations for and were seated right away. The dining area is TINY and seating arrangements are awkward at best. That is the only bad thing I could possibly say, though, because our meal was perfect and our server was wonderful!

For appetizers we had Coquilles St. Jacques-creamy perfectly cooked scallops and Salade Laitue Et Noix Au Roquefort-a simple boston lettuce salad with lots of roasted pecans and the Roquefort dressing was tangy, which I love. For main courses we had Le Poisson "Bronze" Aux Dix Epices-the bronzed fish swimming in a citrus beurre blanc, also perfectly cooked and served with vegetable ratatouille, caviar potatoes-loved it. The hubby had Tournedos Au Roquefort which was a fillet of beef stuffed with lump crab meat and had two sauces-bleu cheese cream and port sauce served with morel mushroorms, haricots verts, roasted carrots with thyme, au gratin potatoes. The sauces were perfection. Dessert was Creme Brulee with fresh raspberries-yummy!

The meal was scrumptious. I cannot remember the last time I closed my eyes while I took a bite of food, but with this meal, I found myself doing just that throughout.

The service was wonderful, efficient, and pleasant.

We can't wait to go back!!

I must start out by saying this used to be the restaurant where my family would celebrate (nearly) every special occasion -- for nearly 7 yrs! However in the past several years it has slipped to levels I simply can't fathom. In Feb & March I celebrated two birthdays at the restaurant & both times it was an atrocious experience on every level! Holding reservations made months in advance, both times we waited nearly 30mins for a table. You must understand, in a situation such as this your party (as well as other unseated guests) are standing in a hallway the entire time without air conditioning (the restaurant is cooled by room based AC) - there is no bar area or place to sit. Once seated, the service was extremely slow. In March the service was slow to a point where you honestly believed your order(s) had been lost. To add insult to injury the waitstaff made what appeared to be several disappearing acts - drink glasses were left empty, bread never refilled, no periodic check-ins. The worse part of both meals was the food was the sub-par - at best! In March I ordered the pate which was mediocre & the Alsatian casserole which tasted of a slow-cooked disaster. We skipped dessert & coffee because it took an eon for the waitstaff to check on us, much less clear our plates. For the record two members of my party complained to one of the co-owners (same two members both visits), no compensation was ever offered - not even free coffee! I can tell you after nearly seven years of celebrations - this year was my final visit. It's truly sad because in Orlando it's hard to find a quant place with great food. But for all those newcomers -- I personally would stear clear!

i'm parisian born and student in orlando I very much appreciate good restaurants in france and i have to say that "le coq au vin" is by far the best french restaurant i've seen here especially for the fish. Unfortunnatly one of the apetizers, the soufflee, is awfull. It was a bad surprise! It seems to be bechamel sauce with swiss cheese. the same for the chocolate soufflee it doesn't make sense to have such insanity in this kind of restaurant because yes, it is a good restaurant. i've eaten there twice and i have been tastfuly suprised by the contenance of the meals. exelent fresh ingredients and the chef absolutely mastered the cooking time of his creations; moreover, the ingredients are perfectely mixed to inssure you a pleasant moment. even tought i've been deceived by the souflees, I highly recommend this restaurant.

With Disneyfied tourism restaurants, Le Coq au Vin is a fantastic change of pace. My boyfriend introduced me to this place on our first date. He is native to the countryside of France and reccomended this to be the 'closest to home' he has found in the U.S. And after experiencing the countryside and fine cuisine of France for a month over the summer, I found he was absolutey right. My favorite dishes are the cheese souflee, coq au vin, rabbit (if you haven't tried it, you'll be pleasantly surprised) and of course the creme brullee. The food is authentic "french" cuisine, the atmosphere is a little noisy and crowded... but bad restaurants DON'T have crowds.... right? Highly reccomend this resataurant.

My husband and I invited two friends to try out this French Restaurant which has great reviews. Our appetizers where delicious! The decor is wonderful, but the mains where bland and boring, the wine list expensive and sparse and the Waiter couldn't name the fromages on the cheese board! Being Francaise I was dissapointed as the fromage and the vin are usually the "piece de resistance". I found many great French Restaurants in Sydney Australia, where the wine list is extensive and affordable, the Fromages have a name, and the mains are extraordinary. Is there such a thing in Orlando? I'm still looking.

My husband and I have been many times... it is the place we go when we want the best French meal... the service is wonderful. I have never had problems with dirty glasses as the last person mentioned.. I would say it must have been a bad nite. I love that they change the menu every other month to utilize fresh foods in season.. anyone who knows about good food, knows that the very best ingredients are key... Order the Grand Marnier or Chocolate Souffle' when you order your dinner.. it takes a while.. but is SO worth it!

Certainly an essential stop on any trip to Orlando. You won't find any trailertrash here, since it's off the beaten track. Except possibly at the sink - two glasses were dirty and also a steak knife. Very strange that this restaurant let itself down like this - hopefully it was a bad night.
