Lovely food and fantastic service as always , my fave place x
Lovely meal and as always great service. Lovely coffee too and good atmosphere.
I enjoyed my starter and my main meal especially my complimentary French martini cocktail delicious.
Great food and atmosphere. Staff were very attentive. Highly recommend and will be back.
Arriving at a fairly crowded restaurant a wee bit earlier than my 7.15pm booking, we were immediately greeted warmly and shown to a pleasant secluded table, as requested. Having checked the extensive menu, we opted for the Chateaubriand to share which, we were advised would take 30 - 35 minutes, which was quite acceptable. Some while later, having ordered drinks, bread and olives to fill the gap we were advised by a very apologetic and charming waitress that, due to a minor contretemps in the kitchen, our order would be delayed by a further 30 minutes. Although hungry, we were in no hurry and willingly accepted the further delay, gratefully accepting another glass of Sauvignon Blanc by way of consolation. Eventually the meal was served, again with profuse apologies from the waitress and it proved to be absolutely delicious and well worth the extended wait. Having finished a really excellent steak, cooked precisely to the level of rarity requested, and its beautifully presented accompaniments, we were both astonished when the bill was presented, together with further abject apologies, to find that the meal had been very heavily discounted and the breads, olives and second drink not charged for. Truly service and customer care beyond measure and I cannot both thank and recommend Cote Brasserie Bluewater highly enough. Needless to say it warranted a tip in addition to the service charge. Mistakes inevitably do happen but our treatment on this occasion was, as ever, exemplary. Thank you again - we will both certainly come back in the near future.
We (and my husband) arrived at Cote Bluewater for late morning breakfast (table pre-reserved in advance). We were met by the 'female greeter' who advised us that their computer billing/order system had crashed and that meals were being delayed.......however, as we were not in a rush we decided to go with the flow. A waitress came and took our order........ we had decide to go for the Breakfast Formulu, where you got a breakfast of your choice (from a range), an apple or orange juice and a hot drink. Our drinks duly arrived; and a little while later, so did our cooked breakfasts. The wait had been a little longer than normal, but as mentioned above, we were fully aware of the issues and therefore it was not an issue. I had gone for a package made up of apple juice, black coffee and the veggie full breakfast; it was delicious. My husband chose orange juice and a pot of breakfast tea and Eggs Royale......again, it was delicious (according to him). I know that some people would be prehaps put off from going into a restaurant when they have issues.....but as we said to a number of the very apologetic staff members; "they did not make the system crash, and that we were gratefull to be advised initially and updated throughout".
Overall, it was good. Food was of good quality. It was our wedding anniversary dinner and we just wanted to be left alone which the waiter noticed so he did leave us alone which was nice. The appetiser came out very quickly which was good. The starters came out before we had finished the appetiser and we had to ask for it to be sent back until we were ready. The mains were really nice. The dessert I had was nice but my husband's creme brulee was bland tasting and the sugar on the top was really bitter. When we mentioned that, they did remove the money from the bill which was nice as they didn't have to do that. I did find that given the size of the bill, the fact that you expect good service as a standard and that all the waiter did was bring and remove the dishes, that the 12.5% charge automatically added to the bill was a bit OTT. We did get a free bottle of wine as a deal I had booked ahead of time and they forgot to take that off the bill but did when I pointed it out. Would recommend, they can't always get everything perfect and it's a nice experience. We'd go back, although to a different one for variety.
First time eating at cote in Bluewater and it was lovely. We were offered a table inside or outside on arrival but chose to eat inside as it's a very hot day. Lovely choice of food and we had a complementary bottle of wine courtesy of signing up for the newsletter. I went with my parents, my mum and I had eaten at Cote before but for my dad a first and we all enjoyed it, the food and service. The food was piping hot and delicious, my dad loved the moules and frites. One of the starters was a little slow in arriving but when the bill arrived the charge for this starter had been removed. My parents eat out at least twice a week and they have already booked to return September. A lovely lunchtime meal with excellent service, our waitress was a delight
I regularly go to Cote in Bluewater with my husband and neighbours because it is our favourite restaurant by far. The service, food quality and value for money is outstanding and we always recommend Cote to our friends. Our waiter last night was very helpful and attentive and both he and another female member of staff apologised to me because the fennel in my meal was difficult to cut. I was very impressed with their concern that the fennel wasn't as it should be. That attention to detail and the way the staff deal with these issues is excellent. We were also thrilled with our free St Germain gin and tonics because I booked on line - they were a delicious treat! As far as we are concerned Cote restaurants are always our first choice wherever we are because they keep such high standards. Thank you!
We were advised on arrival (we had pre-booked in advance) for our late morning breakfast, that there were issues with the till system and that there would be delays to getting meals out etc. As we (my husband) were not in a hurry, we said we would sit down and go with the flow. Our order was taken and drinks duly arrived....whether it was because we were talking, time flew and we were presented with our breakfast eats. I had the Veggie breakfast which was really nice; my husband who loves poached eggs and smoked salmon, had 'Eggs Royale'. Disregarding the till issues (as were given the option to sit or not), it was great food as always. The staff were really apologetic and kept us informed, in case we wanted to change our mind, which we did not.
