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 food and service is superb, attentive but not annoying you every few minutes. Delighted we booked a table in advance otherwise we would have had a long wait.
Love going to Côte. Always have a great meal. Service was good as always, waiting staff seem to appear automatically but are not in your face or rushing you. Would recommend for Breakfast, Brunch & Dinner 😂
Friendly service and delicious fresh food. Excellent coffee too. Attentive to children. I will definitely go back to Cote to enjoy their delectable food and atmosphere.
Food always lovely, great steak, dry frites, lgood house wine, lovely spinach, service pleasant but very slow. Not enough waiters. Best in area. Will go again.
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.
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.
We took a friend who had not been to a Cote before and she was very impressed, especially with the quality of the food. We were very happy as usual but I have taken off the highest mark as our waitress, though very pleasant, was a little over attentive. We were frequently asked if we were all right and our plates were whipped away while the last mouthful was being swallowed. Otherwise it was good and we look forward to our next visit. What has happened to Cote Rewards? I have been booking regularly - twice a month or more but nothing has been offered us since February.
It was a double birthday occasion so I had requested a booth. We arrived and were duly given a booth which was great, then two complimentary glasses of pink fizz arrived for us! That was a lovely touch. The service was fabulous and the food, as always, excellent. We have been to Cote quite a few times over the years, but I had not been recently, I was not disappointed - we all had a marvellous evening. Cote is always reliable and always a lovely evening.
I took my friend for breakfast at Cote, Ealing, and, as always, the service was very good-staff are always so very helpful. The food was delicious (crepe complete) and the coffee (decaff skinny lattes) piping hot and full of flavour. We stayed for a long time after we'd finished our breakfast, and there was absolutely no pressure to leave-we also had a chat with staff about the new, online loyalty 'breakfast club' scheme and they explained it fully. Thank you!
This was a second visit to Cote in Ealing, the first being a couple of years back or more which was very so-so. This visit though changed that completely. A thoroughly enjoyable evening, lovely food, attentive but not oppressive staff and reasonably priced. I'd recommend it to anyone, especially mid-week when it isn't packed solid. Giving it a 6 wsould have meant thatit was perfect and I'm sure that if I think hard enough I could find something to criticise - but I really don't want to work that hard! Thanks Cote. Phil S
I admire this restaurant for it's freshly cooked meals and the quality of the ingredients used. The service is always impeccable and the staff friendly and welcoming. Above all I like the portion size. This means that wastage is cut to the minimum. If you feel hungry and want more there is a usually a good choice of side dishes. I also think the prices are reasonable. No wonder its my favourite place t o dine in Ealing.
Excellent service.We came here for my daughters birthday and had asked if the staff would be able to place balloons and presents on the table before arriving for us,they did this for us and her face was lit up so nice!.We dined from the la carte menu and all food arrived on time.Would highly recommend coming in day or evening.Thanks so much to all the staff for making it a brilliant evening once again.
We've been coming here for years...birthdays, anniversaries, Valentines and Mothers Day...the staff have become friends and the service from all the staff has always been attentive, charming,efficient and impeccable. The food is great value for money and has been consistently great every time!! I have many friends and family that now come here regularly and see what my wife and I said when we said it's the best of the best!! Thanks guys...luvsya
The experience was marred by the waiter assuming he had bagged a nice big tip on top of the surcharge as he failed to return our change, giving us the Freedom to leave additional tips if we so wished The food was great and we always enjoy our time there we are never rushed and usually feels the staff are very genuinely attentive... We won't allow 1misdemeanor to stop us going back... Tho I am not convinced this particular individual was truly sorry for the mishap
The best restaurant in Ealing. Consistently excellent food, delightful efficient service and superb value in the ten years we have been dining here. The soupe de poisson was deliciously authentic and Calamari was delightful. The whole sea bream was generous and beautifully cooked as was the veal. The tourte de chocolat was very rich and unctuous. Altogether a wonderful meal made all the more memorable by attentive and smiling service.
In the end it was a very good evening, food good, service good. The table wasn't the best - long wait initially for drinks order. This seems to be a common fault at Cote Ealing and at other ones too. A pleasant welcome and being seated is followed by a hiatus - as a family or when dining myself I normally have an idea of the drinks order at least, so let's get that under way and start to relax. It wold also be good for the restaurant as they'd probably sell more drinks!
Great food !! However, I don't like the bill surprise of 15% "optional" surcharge for the staff. In the UK it is 10%, and even in the US, where the minimum wage is very low, the tip is not part of the bill, for small parties of people. They probably pay the staff as little as possible and rely on the fact that most people will simply pay up to avoid a potentially embarrassing situation.
