Good evening nice atmosphere enjoyed the food and good service
Brilliant service and brilliant food. Was a birthday treat for my self and was amazing today
One waitress was a little brisk in her manner. What was really bad was a lady in a wheelchair arrived but couldn’t get the lift to work. Her partner asked a member of staff to help. They tried for about 10 minutes but still couldn’t get the lift to work. The lady & her partner had to go away without eating as they couldn’t get into the restaurant. The member of staff nor the duty manager seemed unduly concerned which is appalling. Hopefully the staff reported to the appropriate person that the lift was unusable. When we reported it to the security guy he said he would report it & his colleague knew how to fiddle with the lift to get it to work. It shouldn’t need fiddling to get it to work. I just hope the staff offered a free meal to the lady in the wheelchair when she was able to access the restaurant as an apology for her embarrassment. The whole episode did take the edge off our enjoyment. Get the lift sorted & train the staff how to use said lift PDQ please!
We had booked a table for 2 and arrived at 3.40pm . There were half a dozen other diners there and a number of uncleared tables. We chose a table by the window which was laid up for 4, as those for 2 had either not been cleared or were waiting to be wiped and/or laid-up. We were eventually approached and asked if we would like to order drinks; we were able to give our food order at the same time as we had had plenty of time to study the menus. We also pointed out that there were tables nearby that had not been cleared. When the food arrived it was absolutely delicious and well up to the high standards that we associate with Cote. We are fans of Cote, and wherever we travel in the UK one of the first things we do on arrival is check where the nearest branch is. We have eaten at the Dorchester Cote many times;on this one occasion we were disappointed by the somewhat lackadaisical approach of the staff but not with the food which was as delicious as ever.
We were celebrating 2 x 75th birthdays having known each other over 64 years so chose a half way point. We have been to your Chester Branch and Amersham which were delightful and I would say just had the edge on you because of noise. We were lucky enough to get a quieter table but we must expect a huge table to make a noise, it certainly wouldn’t put us off coming again. Food was lovely but my veal was ever so slightly greasy as it cooled but as it was huge it didn’t matter that I left some. I can thoroughly recommend the pancake with Grand Marnier i look forward to another on my next visit
As with all of our many visits to Cote Dorchester, we had a marvelous time. Very attentive and professional front of house staff and magnificent food served just as it should be with spot on timing from the kitchen, made this special birthday visit quite wonderful, and we could not have wished for or found better. We noticed that all of the other customers, including another three birthday celebrations, received the same level of service. We have rated honestly all headings with 5 stars including the noise level because even with near capacity covers and four birthday crowds we could still have good conversation, and I am a bit deaf! Well done Cote, Dorcheseer!
Outstanding service from Kate, Calvin and the team at Cote. Treated my sister and brother-in-law to a meal, - they had come down from Liverpool for the weekend. They were mightily impressed, not just by the food and ambience, but by the warmth of the welcome. My wife and I are regulars here, and, whilst occasionally the food has let them down, the service is always highly professional, with the additional personal touches that mean so much to the customer (anticipating our own querky needs, ensuring that when possible we get our preferred tables, etc). Cote HQ could learn a lot from Kate and Calvin - but please don't take them away from Dorchester!
My Husband & I had an evening meal in the Dorchester Cote Brasserie and thoroughly enjoyed everything we ordered. He had the hake piperade and said the fish was perfectly cooked & the meal very tasty. I had the fish pie and it was simply delicious. The staff were all friendly & efficient, especially the young woman who served us. After we left we noticed that two coffees had been added to our bill, which we hadn't had, so went back to speak to them about it and it was rectified immediately. Would happily recommend. Although, do bear in mind that when it gets busy, the noise level can be quite high.
