The food was amazing. All three courses were flavoursome! The food is clearly well prepared. We will be back soon!
Great food as always! Found some new favorites for the future. Waitresses were polite and prompt despite the business of Saturday night. Can only recommend.
Great experience and service; loved the complimentary apertif, it felt like a treat.
Wonderful food, well presented and delicious. Staff very professional and welcoming
Côte in Richmond is a firm favourite of our family we usually go for lunch at least once a month. This time it was my birthday and decided to celebrate with a family meal on a Saturday evening. I’m afraid to say that we won’t be back in the evening for a while as we were distinctly underwhelmed and left feeling that it had been a disappointing experience.The food was as good as always but the restaurant was very busy and there just weren’t enough staff to service the tables. We waited a long time to get water and drinks (having walked several miles to get there we were all pretty thirsty). The waiters did their best but were rushing around between the tables trying to keep everyone happy. Starters eventually came but they had run out of bread and said that it would be 20 minutes for some more. Quite a while later the main course came. I hadn’t had a starter so was quite hungry (to say the least). I had ordered the fish stew which I was told would come with bread and I ordered an additional side salad. The fish stew and other mains arrived but no bread or salad. The waitress assured me they were probably on there way. No plate was given for the mussels shells no finger bowl and no spoon to eat the fish stew gravy/juices. It was impossible to catch the eye of a waiter but after about 10 minutes was able to call one over. By this time most of the fish stew had been eaten (using the empty frite containers to put my shells in) so the salad was cancelled. My bread eventually arrived just as I was finishing off. A couple of our group ordered desserts and they duly arrived but by this time our (my) cheery mood was a bit diminished. I Couldn't fault the food which was delicious as always but was let down by the lack of care and service. We will definitely be back but probably not in an evening.
Visited Côte Richmond last evening Saturday 27th for dinner at 7pm. Were shown to our table, a booth as requested, by a lovely young lady, do not her name, but dark haired and with a nose piercing. From beginning to end, she looked after us all well, from helping us two older ladies with putting our walking sticks away,to showing us a nearby loo. She was delightful, patient kind, and humourous, and very attentive. even though so very busy, with other tables. Our grateful thanks to her. The food and wine. as always was delicious Thank you Cóte for another lovely evening. Sheila
My sincere thanks to all at the team in Côte Richmond. Yesterday was a special celebration for me, dining with some friends, made even more special by the wonderful service offered by Faith. Please would you pass on to Head Office how Faith was the perfect waitress? Attentive, friendly, professional and obviously taking great pride in her job and in delivering exceptional customer service. My great thanks to the Chef and team also - superb food as always- the steak was an absolute delight. Many thanks to everyone concerned in making this evening so special for me.
We had trouble with our order. My husband told the waitress which starter he wold have and then told her that we would have the Chateaubriand. He then gave her my starters order. She asked what I was having for the main course and was told it was the Chateaubriand as the Chateaubriand was for two people. After a lengthy rather circular discussion we thought she had understood that it was the Chateaubriand for the two of us. We were completely stumped when she asked us both individually how we would like it cooked and started the explanations all over again explaining it was one order and one piece of meat. We thought she had at last understood what we wanted. Huge quantities of food appeared at the table for our main course - lots of plates, salads, chips and two platters of meat. No doubt rather than just looking and expressing surprise at it all we should have queried it further at that stage but after all the discussions we had had with the waitress we thought she had our order right. Also the waitress bringing the food had apologised for it all looking rather confusing so it seemed as though everyone knew what they were doing. We were shocked when we had the bill and found we had been charged for two separate Chateaubriands. So, low points to the waitress whose command of English was inadequate, but high points to the manager who came to deal with the bill and immediately cancelled the extra charge. The meat was very tender and the salad tasty. I was too full to eat the chips.
This has to be the best Cote experience to date. The table spacing is good and the atmosphere is not too noisy We were served by Anna who was remarkably affable and attentive. It was a first time visit for my grandson and it certainly ticked all the boxes for him. We had to wait, literally, no time for out meal to arrive and each dish was perfectly presented and delicious. Our choices were the half roast chicken, the creamy potato dauphinois, best chips, the seared tuna nicoise and the crab mayonnaise. I have an ongoing issue with all Cotes about the differing presentation and quality of their dauphinois as it is generally served very dry. Today’s was creamy and perfectly presented which provoked an announcement by my grandson that this is the ‘best he has ever tasted’. This was followed by the ‘best chocolate fondant’ he had ever tasted. Thank you Cote Richmond
Well it was a great experience because we really like Cote. The only irritating aspect is being asked by Quandoo for a minimum of 25 words to describe the experience and being pursued by Quandoo with multiple emails. Surely this isn’t necessary. Why does our current restaurant culture dictate that we are all given tasks by another unconnected company after a great night out? We all have jobs or busy lives already and I for one don’t want to have to delete several emails or to have to write 25 words minimum for some unknown company. Yes it’s ironic that I’ve written more than 25 words now but for goodness sake let’s just have some common sense and back away from this rediculous performance management culture. It doesn’t change the food, the ambience or the enjoyment of a restaurant. And most people don’t take these ratings at all seriously now anyway.
