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 as usual. The meat means were delicious and definitely I will come back. I am a regular customer of Cote and I will be!
A delightful experience. Staff very welcoming ,helpful and food excellent as it always is. I recommend Cote to many friends and especially families with children. Th Restuarant never fails them . Thank you.
Very good service as usual. The food was very good. We go there about every 6 weeks because it is good value for money and NOT noisey!
Excellent food and service. The Breton fish stew was delicious. The server was attentive. I will definitely return. I really liked the large linen serviettes.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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,
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...
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.
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 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.
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.
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
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.
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...
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.
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.
Generally the food was good - my only complaint being that the waitress did not ask us how we wanted our steak cooking and when it came it was very rare. However the service generally was good and everything else perfect.
Excellent food and wine and good prompt service - would highly recommend this restaurant. As it was pretty full that evening, it would seem that we're not the only ones who think so !
Lovely food, good service, excellent value and plenty of non veggie choice at this branch of Côte. Will happily return soon. Would love to see more vegetarian food on the menu and some reference to the brand ethics and suppliers.
Lovely venue, for a light lunch with friends, delicious food, although my main arrived while I was still eating my starter , so I had to keep the lid on top to prevent it getting cold. Friendly staff. Would recommend.
Had a lovely evening with some old colleagues. Very good round table so all able to talk to each other. Ambience cosy. Delicious food and service friendly. Hope to return before long.
Excellent proactive customer service and food. I'm a regular client and fillet steaks are outstanding. I know for a fact that I will return. Their before 7pm menu is very varied too!
Very busy for a Thursday at 8 but had booked. Manager very competent and welcoming and appears to work well with his team. Spanish waitress efficient aware of customers needs and charming. Well done chef good pork belly.
Delicious food, expertly cooked. Friendly, courteous, professional service. Nice ambience. Good restaurant to go with friends or family or your loved one! Guaranteed to give you a good evening all round.
Good food in a relaxed informal atmosphere. Service was prompt and friendly. We used the early evening limited menu for Starters and Main course and chose desserts from the a la carte. Overall a very good experience.
We go to this restaurant regularly as it is very local. Food is of a consistently good standard. Service is friendly, but can be a little frustratingly slow during busy period, particularly on Fri and Sat evenings...
Nice ambience, decent food & attentive staff. The early evening set menu offers choice and at £10.95 for 2 courses & £12.95 for 3, exceptional value for money. This will continue to be a regular haunt ...
Excellent food and service. Have been there a few times with my friend who has a guide dog and they are very accommodating. The early evening menu is exceptional value.
After waiting a while for a waiter to come to the table - everything was fine and the service was excellent. We found the portions of Boeuf Bourguignon slightly smaller than usual, but everything was delicious.
