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.

Good friendly service and good quality food at a reasonable price with a broad menu choice. Pre-7 menu especially good value at £12.95 for three courses.
Excellent service and food and free Kir Royales. What more could one want? There is nothing else which needs to be said Many thanks B, Elis
Good food as usual and freindly staff made the evening very enjoyable. The Heritage tomatoes and goats cheese starter was different and very seasonal, I will certainly have it again.
Well placed table for our family group. Pleasant and efficient waitress and the food up to the expected high standard we are familiar with. A very good lunch time visit - with excellent child friendly service.
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.
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
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.
Côte Brasserie - Ealing has some very friendly, efficient staff who greet and serve with a pleasing attitude. The restaurant itself serves great food and provides a lovely ambience.
Very fond of the Cote, Ealing. The service is efficient, friendly, but not intrusive. The food is very good or we wouldn't return. On our last visit my wife was full of praise for the Crab starter and the Calamari was excellent and a decent size portion. The steak's, well what can one say, thats why we go.
We had a thoroughly enjoyable time celebrating our daughter's birthday at Cote, Ealing yesterday evening. The food was delicious ( we always find Cote's food reliable and delightful with something to please everyone.) The service was excellent, friendly and efficient. Granny, age 90 ,enjoyed the dinner too. All in all it was a lovely evening. Thank you, Cote.
Service was polite helpful and prompt. The meal for my party of six was very good, the only problem was that my well done rib eye steak was decidedly pink and not quite the way I would have liked it.The complimentary bottle of red wine was excellent, rich fruity and smooth and enjoyed enough by those who partook of it to encourage us to buy another one,
The wait staff are excellent. Our table waiter was attentive but not interfering. Understanding of the tables dietary needs. We had a birthday cake that was brought out perfectly. They even gave us complimentary dessert wine. I left my phone in the restaurant and they kept it safe and handed it back securely. Completely impressed
Absolutely cracking experience. The friendliness of the staff, the speed of service and the food itself was truly amazing. I loved every mouthful and didn't want it to end... There is a real ambience in the place and is good for family's and couples. The extensive Gluten Free menu also went down well...
Really lovely birthday meal. The free Kir Royales were a nice touch and we loved our steak and seafood linguine. The linguine was really generous with the seafood - some places you only receive a couple of pieces of fish with a mountain of spaghetti. Steak was perfect. Will return!
Our party of three were still eating our starters when the main course was brought to the table and I had to ask for the food to be taken away until we had finished. On this occasion the waiting staff presumably didn't liaise with the kitchen! We have eaten at Cote in Haywards Heath several times and have never had cause to complain. I'm pleased to say my mother enjoyed her meal.
We (a family party of six usually) have been dining at Cote Ealing since it first opened some years ago - always excellent! Cote management has a genius for employing helpful knowledgeable and friendly staff which creates such an agreeable ambience that one is reluctant to leave.
The wine and food were very good. Gluten free options were plenty. The service was friendly. X-factor was missing. We were at your Amersham restaurant only few days ago and the staff attention and friendliness was this factor that made us invite our friends out to their nearest Cotes. Still it was overall good and enjoyable.
Always enjoy this restaurant - nice atmosphere, good food and the set price menu is good value. Today wAs no exception. Staff friendly and welcoming. Food good. Only criticism is that the service was a little slow for a busy but not packed lunchtime. Otherwise business as usual in really nice Ealing restaurant. We'll be back.
The tables were too close together and we had to wait just a little bit too long to be asked if we wanted any drinks but otherwise everything else was great. The food was good and so was the wine and once we had been served, the attention from the waiting staff was very good.
I absolutely enjoy dining with u. The service is great, the ambience is welcoming. The food is amazing together with the presentation. I have recommended it to friends and family, even to any one who will listen. Thank you for every thing. God bless .
The layout of this cote is lovely. The staff are excellent. The food is very good too. The location based in central Ealing great. Cote has to compete with many good restaurants in the area. You can't beat vote on good value for money.
The service is always welcoming and and efficient. The lunch (until 7pm) menu is stunning value. The best dish we have tasted on the March menu is the Moules Provençale, a generous starter. I will ask for my sea bream to be cooked a little more gently next time. Overrall. very satisfactory.
Food, service & ambiance were all very good. The lunchtime menu provides a very tasty meal & is excellent value. The only slight criticism was that where we were sitting, in a table by the back wall, there was a draught, which created a bit of a chill in the ambient temperature.
Went for dinner for Mother's Day. Beautiful meal and the staff were lovely. The restaurant was very clean and tidy, only thing I would complain about were the ladies toilets, could do with being checked at times especially as it gets very busy
The restaurant has a lovely ambience. The meal was very good apart from the fact that there were a number of large fish bones in my friend's fish dish. The dish had potato on top so she did not notice until she had a mouthful of bones, which was very distressing
We had a lovely meal today at Cote in Ealing. The food was very good, I had the veal escalope and chocolate mousse, and the bread to start was also very fresh and tasty. The staff were also very polite and friendly.
Consistantly good, food quality, service and atmosphere throughout the Cote franchise. Our regular go to especially when you need reliability together with a declicious range of french style food. Prices are also good value for money with early evening deals which offer great savings. Comprehensive gluten free menu is available.
Pre booked and reserved a table for my husband and myself for breakfast Warm welcome into restaurant by a waitress who remembered by husband she only had eyes for him and was terribly giggly 😑Delicious food as always Prompt,clean and wonderful
The food was good, recommend the creamed spinach. We had the set menu 3 courses, great value for money. One remark was that my friend had the frozen berries with hot white chocolate sauce but the sauce was not that hot i.e. to melt the berries. Friendly service
Service pleasant and efficient, despite the number of people there on Friday evening. As the only vegetarian in the group, I envied my companions the greater range of choice from the menu. I look forward to the time when there is a greater choice for vegetarians.
Excellent, prompt service, as always. Friendly staff, who always remind you if there are any 'meal / special offers' before you finalise your order-which is very helpful. Delicious breakfast - would recommend the 'crepe complete' too! Thank you!
Perfect night. Great food, staff etc couldn't fault it. However having to write twentfuve words in the review to be able to post it is painful. People have busy lives and you need to get this sorted...
Excellebt service. Food delicious as usual. Good atmosphere and happy customers celebrating a happy Fathers Day. Nice to see several American parties enjoying the food !! Salads seem to be a big hit. My steak was excellent.
excellent friendly service, delicious food, feels like a neighbourhood restaurant rather than an impersonal chain. Particularly impressed by the trouble taken by staff to reunite me with my phone after l left it behind at breakfast time!
It was easy to book online. The staff were very welcoming when we arrived and the service was good throughout the meal. We only had one course as we were going to the theatre. Would defiantly recommend.
excellent meal . We had the early evening two courses for £10-95. I had the cod gougions and my husband the chicken with crème caramel for dessert. Scrumptious!! Great Value with a very attentive waiter .
Excellent April menu with balanced choice of fish and meat together with quality salads. Deserts as always not to be avoided ! Ealing Cote excel with their staff who are not only professional but very personable.
Attentive and efficient service as always. The main courses of poulet grille were tasty but the portion sizes of both chicken and potato gratin have definitely been reduced quite significantly. The apple tart was delicious and a lovely end to the meal.
Wonderful service and wonderful food! Can not complain at all. Will definitely go there again. Even though it was very busy both me and my mother were looked after, the lady who served us went the extra mile which I really appreciated.
Excellent veggie cooked breakfast with juice and cappuccino. It has a lovely herby sausage as well as advocacy, tomato, mushroom and poached eggs on sourdough. Very quiet in the restaurant, service was efficient and polite.
Did not get the table we requested but manager apologised. Gave us quite a nice table out of those that were available. Service was pleasant and helpful. All dishes good, especially the goat cheese salad starter and fish stew. Reasonable price.
