Good welcome, delicious food , friendly service. Will go back.
May 20 was my birthday and I had lunch with 2 pals. The promised complimentary kir royals were provided. Very nice! The food we all had was very well received; it included starters of very well cooked calamari, mains of asparagus risotto, a breton fish stew (mine) and mussels in a cream-based sauce. My pal who had the mussels showed the waiter the closed one remaining on his plate and said that it should perhaps have been filtered out in the kitchen. When we got the bill, the cost of his dish had been deducted as a goodwill gesture. Amazing! The coffee I ordered was a decaff espresso. Bizarrely what I got was barely a thimbleful, much smaller than even the most 'ristretto' espresso one would get in a bar in Italy. The restaurant in Tavistock St is quite large and, as it was Monday, a lot of tables were free. We were placed right next to a table occupied by 4 or 5 very garrulous ladies talking at high volume. I suppose we should have asked to move to another table! But never mind. On the whole many thanks to Cote where I've eaten many times and will continue to eat. Pietro di Bembo
Delicious well priced foods on Prestige menu served in good time, as we were going to the theatre. Staff were very friendly and helpful. My on line seating request was met.
Restaurant was so noisy and over seated and cramped. It’s the worst Côte I’ve been to. The food was lacklustre, my beetroot and mackerel slad looked a mess and was missing the horseradish creme fraiche. It was a really sad salad. I ordered the steak for main which was so riddled with fat I had to return it. The promptly replaced it with the sea bass which was fine. I did receive a glass of wine off my bill as a gesture for the steak which I did appreciate. Overall a very depressing visit which is a shame as I’m a big fan of Côte. They need to remove the amount of diners they’re trying to squeeze in and make space for plants and soft furnishings to absorb the sound in the place. My companion and I had to really raise our voices to talk to each other. Shame.
Fabulous food and service. Thank you! Made our last evening in London memorable.
Delicious food and friendly, attentive service. We had the pate, onion soup and pork belly with dauphinois potatoes. All well prepared and piping hot! One of our favourite pre-opera places!
Nice touch to have complimentary birthday drinks and pudding with candle for the birthday girl! Great service with a smile too and lovely meal.
excellent service and food delicious. I've been to this restaurant several times and the levels have never dropped. Staff are always friendly and the service is very prompt
Good value set meal with plenty of choice, excellent service and ideal for pre-theatre meal as got us through in good time without a rush. Will come again.
Good service however In common with most restaurants with it was very VERY noisy
