“Service was welcoming and professional… interesting, well-made, fair-priced French dishes that any modern bistro in France would be proud of”
– Guy Diamond, Time OutWhen a meal out doesn’t break the bank but the food you’ve had is absolutely worth writing home about, you feel a little glow inside. It’s that feeling of satisfaction and being perfectly full that just makes you want to smile. And it’s all of this that you’ll experience when you visit any Côte Brasserie, particularly this one in London’s Ealing. Here on The Green, relaxed French dining is done absolutely right. Freshly made food is combined with charming French decor and exceptional service to match. Go and see why we’re making such a song and dance!
London knows all about Côte Brasserie, of course. This is the city where Côte first made a name for itself as the flagbearer of affordable French cuisine in the UK. As such, Côte is part of the furniture in London, and the hungry folk of Ealing are certainly glad to have this branch on The Green. Opposite Ealing Green and not far from Ealing Broadway train station, this Côte makes the ideal stop for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, given the restaurant’s championing of all-day dining. Expect authentic and fresh flavours, but not a hefty figure at the bottom of your receipt.
The weekday lunch and early evening menus at Côte Brasserie in Ealing are of astonishing value. From 12-7pm Monday to Friday grab two courses of delicious French food for £10.95, or three courses for £12.95 – trust us when we say that London goes mad for this kind of value. From the a la carte in the evening there are traditional French classics as well as specialities slightly more region-specific. French onion soup, chicken liver parfait, tuna niçoise, risotto vert, those are just a few options available should you fancy something light. For a larger plate, try Breton fish stew, duck confit or Steak frites – it’s all glorious stuff in Ealing.
Excellent service, good value for money meal and always friendly and welcoming staff. Always return to Cote whenever we are in Ealing visiting our family.
Cote is a great restaurant, the good is consistently good which ever Cote you visit. It’s great food and a great price, a place to celebrate.
As usual the food and the service was excellent. Very good value for money and the ambience is always inviting with a good buzz but not to loud.
Amazing birthday breakfast for our son- delicious coffees and full English breakfast. Excellent attentive service with lots of happy smiles. Will definitely be back again very soon.
I normally absolutely love this place and come here regularly for special occasions so when Mother's Day was popping over the horizon i decided to treat my mum to a new experience and show her the place i had been raving about. I ordered my usual of the pork and my mum got the half char chicken. I am disappointed to report that this meal did not live up to its previously high set standards, it was almost embarrassing that i had been boasting about the venue to reveal a gastropub standard meal (no offense to gastropubs- im a bug fan- but it wouldn't be my first choice to show my mum how much i appreciate her) My pork was dry and over cooked, the top layer which is usually crisp was soggy and upsetting. Despite having swapped my gratin for purée i was delivered what i would describe as standard underseasoned mashed potato (no lumps though so...) Mother's chicken was succulent and the mushroom sauce device, i don't think she noticed my disappointment. I tasted the chicken myself and didn't think it any special. The dessert was lovely as usual, i went for the tarte fine aux pommes and mum had the frozen berries with melted white chocolate. All in all, this place has amazing food, just don't go here on a busy day because the care for the dishes seems to disappear.
We popped into Cote Brasserie in Ealing on the off chance for a table as we hadn't booked on a Bank Holiday. The staff were really efficient and polite and we were shown to a nice table for two. The staff were really good on gluten free dining and Côte's excellent GF menu produced. Even though this was early evening, the place was fairly busy with a good relaxed atmosphere. We are fairly used to Côte restaurants, and this was definitely up to their usual standard. No nonsense French brasserie style food but with the GF options; in fact all GF meals are served with a little GF marker to avoid any mix up. Always a safe and sure choice with good food and service at a reasonable price; something we are used to with this rather good chain.
This restaurant exemplifies the French style and grace that is looking to portray. A wonder decor invites you to enter with its well-aligned tables and brushed bronze colours on the walls. The mirrors also alongside the walls open up the room that is sufficiently large. The service is exceptional with patient and courteous staff that is there to support your dining experience. The front of house greets guest warmly and is always surveying the restaurant to ensure everyone is happy. The food is of good quality, in particular, the brioche is exceptional. The portions are on the small side. However, when combined as a full meal is sufficient to meet your hunger. The wine is of a good standard. There are various specials and offers to help support most budgets. The restroom facilities are well kept and hygienic. Overall it is a delightful experience and worth the visit for some fine French dining.
Staff, atmosphere good. I eat there 2-3 times a week and the one complaint I would have is that the decrease in front of house staff is noticeable. The staff there are diligent and hard working but there used to be more of them and getting a second bottle of wine or ordering deserts used to be more readily done. Don't misunderstand this, you have some excellent staff there many of whom I would consider long term staff. However, it is simply the decrease in staff that is making the experience less pleasant while at the same time prices are obviously going up.
overall good, however when I asked for a ST Clements soft drink I was told we don't have that look at the drinks menu! When I explained what it was, Orange and lemonade mixed in a tall glass with Ice and Lemon slice, the manager said a mix of orange and lemonade was only possible with bottled lemonade, OK I said and can I have a long glass? I got a short glass full to top with orange with ice and only and a small bottle of lemonade. Therefore the drink only became St Clements when I had drunk half the glass so there was room to add the lemonade. I did not ask any further as she was a bit scary.
Very good evening. Great food as always, and attentive, sensitive staff. The only hiccough was around the booking. My booking experience was not straightforward. It took four attempts and two devices to get my booking finally confirmed. When we finally got to your restaurant however, I was disappointed that they had no evidence of the booking - I was told that there were teething problems with the new booking system. Luckily there was a table for us, but it would have been more than frustrating if, having had such difficulties making my booking with you, I had not been able to eat there after all. So I do hope you get your booking problems ironed out.
