Further Information

It’s without any wonder that Côte Brasserie has become the huge success it is today. With a reputation that’s known both in London and throughout the UK, Côte Brasserie has consistently earned the highest marks in presentation, taste and service since the restaurant’s establishment back in 2007. Despite the restaurant’s commitment to only using the best gourmet ingredients, Côte Brasserie’s prices remain affordable, making it the ideal destination right in the centre of London’s Covent Garden for those who enjoy dining without exorbitant price tags.

The offerings at Côte Brasserie on Covent Garden’s St Martin’s Lane are classically French, ranging from hearty favourites like beef bourguignon to seafood specialities including mussels with white wine sauce. We recommend beginning with Côte Brasserie’s tuna carpaccio before diving into mains like the seasonal rump of lamb with Jersey Royal potatoes, English asparagus and mint Hollandaise. If you like a good cut of beef, you can’t go wrong with their 30-day aged 10oz rib-eye cooked to perfection with a side of bearnaise sauce or roquefort butter. Open for breakfast every day of the week and also offering a variety of fantastic desserts, Côte Brasserie sets the stage for any occasion – let yourself be whisked away from London to France at this charming Covent Garden brasserie.

Excellent service, excellent food - Cote B is really pretty good for a restaurant chain and tonight's pre-theatre meal at St Martin's Lane was no exception.

Great choice of food on the pre-theatre menu and wide selection of wine by the glass. Friendly and swift service. Conveniently located close to theatres

We had a voucher for a delicious bottle of wine, and were made very welcome with service very attentive and pleasant. The food was excellent, even though the restaurant was very busy with lunchtime diners. Very good experience.

WE went for a pre-theatre dinner so that is very different from a more leisurely dinner. Cote has a set menu with about half a dozen choices for each course. It was £12.50 for two and £13.95 for three courses. I had a very nice starter of smooth duck pate on toasted sourbread and my wife had a sort of pancake with melted camembert (both of which were very nice) which we both followed with the typically French steak frites. It was a minute steak cooked med-rare, which it really was. The steak was fine but the portion of frites was for me a bit mean. It came in one of those now apparently compulsory tiny buckets which I must say I find rather annoying as they sit awkwardly on the plate and reduce portion size. The frites I had however were hot and crispy. I think some sort of vegetable or salad in addition would be appropriate but there was none. We drank a couple of glasses of their Cote du Rhone, very pleasant. For pud my wife had crème caramel which she enjoyed and I had ice cream. My wife liked the crème caramel. I felt the ice cream was a bit ordinary. It wouldn't cost that much more to have a luxury ice cream of which there are plenty these days. The staff were pleasant though very busy. There was one exciting and amusing incident when one waitress was bumped into by another waiter and the glass of wine she was carrying was spilt. She was so annoyed that she through the empty glass on the floor smashing it. All was cleared up quickly! So all in all it did what it said on the tine. We fed perfectly well and in good time for our show and at a very reasonable cost for central London. As an adjunct to a theatre trip I would certainly go there again but would need to try the main menu to see if it was what I wanted for an evening out in its own right..

These guys are brilliant! I'd booked for the pre-theatre menu, months in advance, for my mum's birthday (pre going to the theatre!). The welcome was warm and they gave us a good table upstairs. Within a few moments of being shown our table, our charming waiter arrived with complimentary bubbles for the three of us for my mum's birthday. She was delighted! They were super busy, even at 5.30-6pm, but we didn't feel at all rushed (nor treated like cheapskates) dining from the pre-theatre set menu. Service was excellent and the food & wine very good value indeed. Cote have hit on a winner with their early set menu, but the true praise goes to the way that they treat diners: with professional care and warmth (this is consistent at every branch I have been too). Most of the staff we passed when leaving also wished us 'thank you, good bye' or 'thank you, have a nice evening'.

We were warmly welcomed on our arrival at this restaurant & shown to our table by a very friendly member of staff. Service was excellent & our waiter kindly brought me a basket of bread with my soup when I mentioned I'd had this at another branch of Cote. The 3 courses my husband & I had were excellent value for money at £13.95 each ( especially as many tourists rate London so expensive for eating out ). We spent a leisurely 2 hours there prior to our theatre outing & I would not hesitate to visit this branch again in the future. If I had to mention a downside, it would be to say this restaurant is very busy pre-theatre, & therefore becomes very noisy with customers talking, but that goes to show how popular Cote is.

Having enjoyed Cote meals locally I booked here for a pre theatre meal for my companion and me. I had already downloaded the menu and we discussed it. We had assumed the pre-theatre menu would be unattractive and chose accordingly! How wrong could we have been? The welcome was warm and friendly and despite the restaurant buzzing with around 160 guests we were treated as if we were the only ones. The fixed price menu shook us by the variety of choice and great dishes, but we stuck to our original choices! My veal escalope was very large but beautifully cooked thin, tender and delicious whilst the tuna steak was perfection. Looking at the dishes at neighbouring tables the fixed price menu offerings looked equally appealing.

My friend and I had a lovely meal at Cote,St Martins Lane. I had booked a table online and glad I did as it was very busy. When we arrived I mentioned to the member of staff who greeted us that I had a problem with my knee following a recent fracture and could we have a slightly bigger table so I could elevate my leg if necessary. Even though it was busy and space was at a premium they were very accommodating and brought another chair for me to rest my leg. This made a huge difference to my comfort and enjoyment of dining at Cote. I have dined in a few branches of Cote and have always enjoyed good food and service.

Thank you for giving me this opportunity to rate our experience last Thursday evening on 12th Oct - OMG my rating is 6++. I made the reservation online and advised it was my husband's birthday so if possible could it be a nice table. Well all I can say is the manager on the front desk and his staff made the evening very specail indeed. The food was delicious and I have to say that Cote continues to be our restaurant of choice when we visit the theatre in the West End. We live in a perfect rural Essex village and I shop in Chelmsford so I am so pleased you have opened a restaurant there which we hope to visit shortly.
