More about Côte Chester, Chester

Côte Brasserie in Chester is perfectly suited to the walled, medieval city as it too transcends reality with its distinctive Parisian bistro interior that transports its guests to a small restaurant in a back street somewhere in the heart of the romantic city of Paris. Located on Bridge Street, right in the heart of the city, Côte Brasserie serves up all your French favourites and certainly lives up to its reputation as being the go-to restaurant for consistent and quality French cuisine.

While there is a large range to choose from, we love beginning with the salmon fishcakes paired with baby spinach salad, dill and a wholegrain mustard sauce, before the main event of either rump of lamb with jersey royal potatoes, english asparagus and mint hollandaise, the delicious Breton fish stew of sea bream, mussels, clams, prawns and squid with tomato, white wine and chilli or perhaps the classic favourite beef Bourguignon with potato and chive purée, bacon lardons and chestnut mushrooms will tickle your fancy. Whatever you decide, the team at Côte Brasserie in the centre of Chester have got you covered. So why delay? Book a table at this French delight today.

I picked Cotes Brasserie after reading several excellent reviews on Trip Advisor and we weren't disappointed. I originally booked a table for 5.00pm but the play we were seeing was late finishing so I rang the restaurant to explain that we would be a little late - not a problem. When we arrived, we were shown upstairs to a spacious dining area and ushered into a booth and offered drinks - our waiter was fabulous, very friendly and accommodating, recommending drinks and food. Unfortunately, I didn't get his name. He recommended the fougasse to start and it was as delicious as he said it would be - soft and fluffy, garlicky, buttery and herby. After this, we had 3 items off the lighter mains part of the menu - a tuna Nicoise, a chicken & walnut salad and risotto vert - and also the 1/2 Breton chicken with frites and french beans. All the food was delicious - clean plates all round! With a little room left, we all had desserts and coffee. With a few drinks, the total bill for 4 of us came to £122 - this included a 12% gratuity, which is of course discretionary. However, the wait staff had more earned it so we were happy to leave it on the bill. We thought this constituted great value, given what we had eaten and the service we had received. Thank you Cotes Brasserie - we will be back.

Nice venue and atmosphere, we were in the lower seating area with the arched roof. Staff were friendly and efficient. We ordered a starter and main meal, both of which were good, the side orders of vegetables were nicely cooked, and the whole meal was very enjoyable. I would use this restaurant again. A young couple sitting next to us were getting uncomfortably familiar with each other but that was outside the control of staff. The bill on electronic payment had a 12.5% voluntary gratuity already added on, which I never like to see and it could be 'overlooked' by a customer. I deselected this and tipped the waitress directly as she was good and efficient. But overall I enjoyed what I think was my first visit to a Cote restaurant.

Both my husband and I were looking forward to the May menu. We love the fact that the menu changes monthly: not fully, but 2-3 courses on it. The food was delicious: I had steak tartare and lamb rump; my husband ordered black pudding and pork belly. The souces with both main courses were thick, shiny and flavoursome. The waitress was good and knowledgeable about the wine. However, we think that the manager did not foresee how busy the restaurant would be on a Bank Holiday Sunday: even though only half of the restaurant was booked and used, people without booking were sent away and there was a long wait for food. Excuses of kitchen being overloaded were made but no compensation was offered. Our wait was 30 min-ish for the starter but the table of 4 dining next to us waited for an hour. So, delicious food and we will be going back but the service let it down a bit.

8 of us went to Cote in Chester on Boxing Day. It was a great meal as the food was very good and the service from everyone was brilliant. Everything was very organised and nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff which was a refreshing change as we find most restaurants do not want to be bothered especially when there are a lot of people to be waited on. A big thank you to the manager and his team. We would recommend anyone to have a meal at Cote in Chester and are sure they would not be disappointed. Well done !

Cote restaurants provide a modernist menu with a French style giving it an exclusive appeal and good food. Delighted that the Chester restaurant has opened and I would recommend a visit as soon as soon as you can make it not only to savour the very comprehensive menu but to watch the team come together to make this restaurant Top of Class. I say this because the venue is amazing coupled with menu but forgetting the wine was a issue in the team. Thankfully another waitress put her hands on the required bottle albeit half way through the main course and continued to look after us Professionally for the rest of the evening. If I had 8 places in a life boat but 9 people the one who forgot the wine would be coming. The restaurant is reasonably priced and carries a 12.5% service charge which I personally like and makes me very comfortable. Good luck guys

Excellent the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. I have allergies and all my orders were taken by the manager which was really reassuring. They asked me if it was a special occasion , I was there with my daughter and best friend and I told them we were buying my mother of the bride outfit for my daughters wedding and they brought us some prosecco to celebrate. They were all so lovely and made the evening very special. We were all absolutely thrilled with the evening and would like to send our thanks to all the staff.
