We try to eat dinner here twice a month, once off the specials menu and once off the usual one. The food is always excellent and the service also. There is always a good atmosphere.
Another lovely meal at Cote. We had starters and mains only as we were too full for dessert. We try to go twice a month and eat off the monthly specials menu and the usual one. The food is always excellent and the service also
Very good meal and our party of five enjoyed their meal very much and the service was first class. Thank you so much !
An excellent lunch at a reasonable price with very good service.
Lovely dining experience here last night. We were out for a celebratory meal and the staff could not have been more helpful. I arrived earlier in the day with a present and a balloon and asked if this could be put out on the table for our arrival - not only was this done beautifully but they table we were sat on was lovely, a very spacious booth for just the two of us. Now to the food! We opted for the sharing variation of garlic bread and it was beautiful - freshly made bread infused with garlic with crumbs of sea salt. For mains I opted for the steak frites and my friend opted for risotto - both delicious and two clean plates at the end. Chocolate fondant for dessert, warm and gooey, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side. Our experience could not have been better, staff were lovely and just the right level of attentive. This was our first time here and we will definitely be back!
This was our first visit to Cote and I'm not sure we'll be back. Firstly, the good, the female staff member who came to take our drinks order was friendly and chatty and genuinely seemed to care. In terms of food, the bread was very nice as were the green olives, the other olives has a bit of an odd taste but I couldn't quite place it. That seemed to be it for the good. A male server took our order and, despite us ordering just mains, he asked us what we wanted to start. We had already ordered bread and olives he seemed quite pushy and asked what we wanted to drink, despite us already having wine and water. We had to ask for side plates when the bread arrived and, it took us a few minutes to get the attention of a staff member which was quite disappointing. However, we ate the bread and olives and were waiting for our dirty dishes to be removed when a kitchen porter arrived with the tray along with the waiter. The waiter looked at our table, turned to the server, took my meal from the tray and tried to put it down where my dirty bread/olive plate was. The next thing he said to me was "can you move your plate" I am completely shocked that a waiter would look at a table, see dirty dishes and expect the customer to move them. Before a main course is served any good waiter comes to remove dirty dishes. I was really disappointed. My husband's steak was okay, but he had to ask for a steak knife, that should have been brought straight away. After this we had spent enough time in Cote and were ready to leave but were given the dessert menu without being asked if we wanted it. We asked for the bill when the waiter came for our order and he seemed shocked, saying we would "really regret" not having a dessert. I had to ignore him and turn away. It was when the bill arrived that I realised why he was pushing starter, dessert and drinks (multiple times) that I realised why, Cote add 12.5% 'optional service charge' to the bill. We were certainly not going to be giving 12.5% and, when my husband asked for this to be taken off, the waiter was very taken aback and, either he didn't understand, or just played dumb as he entered the full amount with service charge into the machine for my husband to put his pin in, again, my husband had to explain he was not paying the service charge and this was finally taken off. This was such a disappointment as it feels as though this is not actually an optional charge! The wait staff should not take the huff if customers refuse to pay an "optional" charge.
Had dinner at Côte Edinburgh last night for the first time. We loved everything about it! The menu was fabulous, difficult to decide what to eat due to excellent variety of choice. The food did not disappoint, everything was delicious. Every member of staff was welcoming and very attentive. I also loved the decor, and felt that I was sitting in an authentic French brasserie. This will definitely be a regular haunt!
My yoga/fitness group have been going to Cote in Frederick Street for coffee since it opened in Edinburgh. Since we go regularly, once or twice a week we have got to know the staff who are very attentive. Today was the second time I had been for lunch. My friend and I each had the 2 course lunch for £10.95 plus a glass of wine and coffee which came to just over £20. Both starters were generous portion-wise, innovative in presentation and ingredients. I chose the crab and avocado and my friend chose the tuna. For the main course she selected the fishcake and I took the breaded chicken breast which was more than ample. We each had a small glass of nicely chilled Cabinet Sauvignon. For a budget lunch in the capital the quality and quantity are excellent.
Hello, we had a lovely meal on Friday 30th March. You have brought out a premier set menu and we ordered from this menu. There is another group of six ladies who I come with a lot (around once a month) and we usually order from the cheaper set menu. A few in this party always order the crumble for dessert so I was disappointed to see that it was now on the premier menu. Can this be changed or can we ask to order this item as part of the cheaper menu? Some of the other ladies visit the restaurant outwith our group visit as I did last week. Another of the group was there with different friends that same evening. We really like eating at the restaurant and have been eating there since you opened in Edinburgh. Thank you from a fan of the restaurant!
I booked Cote for an early evening dinner with a couple of friends and it did not disappoint. We were greeted with a welcoming smile as we walked through the door and promptly shown to our table which was in a good position in the centre of the restaurant. Our order was taken quickly and courteously (but not rushed) and our meals were delivered soon after by a very pleasant and attentive waitress. Each of us had made different selections and all agreed that our food was excellent, with one of my friends commenting that his steak was perhaps the best he'd ever had. All round an excellent and thoroughly enjoyable experience - Thank you Cote Edinburgh - we will be back!
