As one of the UK’s largest group of restaurants, Côte Brasserie has become a household name, known for its modern interpretations of classic French dishes and it's elegant bistro-style setting. Located on West Nile Street, right in the heart of Glasgow city centre, Côte Brasserie provides diners with a Parisian brasserie experience that combines chic decor and a menu of authentic French dishes, all made from scratch using quality ingredients. Start off by sharing the charcuterie board with jambon de savoie, smoked duck breast, saucisson sec, duck rillettes and chargrilled pain de campagne before moving on to your main.
Only some of the dishes you can expect to find on the menu include steak frites, traditional beef bourguignon, and the pan-roasted haddock fillet wrapped in smoked French bacon with braised puy lentils and wilted baby spinach, dill and beurre blanc. Be sure to leave room for more though, because as you would expect from a French restaurant, the list of desserts is divine. Think decadent chocolate fondue with vanilla ice cream, chocolate and praline crêpes with caramelised bananas and crème Chantilly, and home-style tarte au citron. For a French dining experience in Glasgow city centre, book a table at Côte Brasserie now.

Everything was great from the food to the service we received. The Calamari in particular was perfect. We will definitely be back here soon. Thanks
Excellent atmosphere, attentive staff and great menus. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal as usual. Regular updates of special deals are welcome. Thank you for the birthday invite and free drink.
We had a great meal service and hospitality was first class. Very clean and efficient staff we ere made most welcome. Will visit again when in Glasgow next time.
Another great visit to Cote Glasgow. The staff are always very nice and make my visit a real joy. The food is always excellent and I am particularly fond of the seasonal set menu, which represents great value for money. I will be back again!
I don't usually spend the time to write these sorts of review, but after eating there tonight, I thought I would share my thoughts...Forget the nonsense talk about 'restaurant chains' being cookie cutter-style food factories as they evidently can be excellent - it's all about the staff and care of the food they are serving. In Glasgow, they certainly understand that and provide what only can be described as an unexpected 10/10 experience. You can see they are a team from front of house through to the kitchen and importantly making a real effort with you from the moment you walk through the door...and all the staff are enjoying delivering a professional yet unfussy table service. Well done - great value for money...I was looking to add a service tip, but realised it was already in there! Overall an honest straight forward menu, not trying too hard, perhaps under promising at first glance but certainly over delivering. Wine list is sensible and fair with accessible wine for all, without fleecing you. Thank you.
My sisters and I enjoyed a lovely early pre theatre meal at Cote. This was our first visit and will not be the last. When the staff realised it was my birthday they brought over a complimentary glass of Prosecco to me. We all ordered different starters and mains and all of the food was of excellent quality and lovely flavours. There was a lovely selection on the small early bird menu, including two types of chicken dish. At this point the only small mar on proceedings was when the Chicken main I had ordered, unfortunately came as the other chicken main dish. The staff could not have dealt with this in a more professional way than they did. The manager came over immediately, apologised and offered to change. As we were very tight for time, I declined and ate the dish presented which was lovely. However she still brought along the chicken dish I had first ordered, that we may all taste it. " Have a picnic" she said. In addition she did not charge for any of the food which I ate. I can honestly say I have rarely experienced such service.
Cote Brasserie was excellent as always. The food was of a high standard and such good value for money. The three of us had all different starters, mains and desserts and they were all delicious. I had the couscous which was very tasty with just the right hint of spices for flavour. My son had the steak which was perfectly tender as was the chicken dish which my daughter had. The iced berries and white chocolate sauce was memorable as was the creme caramel that my son had. The chocolate mousse was light and melted in your mouth. All in all a very good meal.will definitely return to try their new menu. The staff were helpful and very pleasant. There is always a good atmosphere and you are not rushed.
Staff were very helpful as a member of our group had forgotten their glasses and a waitress/ manager kindly found my friend a pair to read the menu with. Also the same girl helped me claim my free bottle of wine that I had forgotten to fill in at home. All four of us enjoyed our meals. The starters of prawns and french onion soup all tasty and well cooked. Two of us chose the fish from the smaller plate selection as mains and they were suffient for a main course and well cooked with a nice dressing. The pork belly was well cooked and accompanied by dauphonise potatoes. The haddock was well cooked and tasty. The only negative comment was there was no draft beer.
The friendly greeting at the door set the mood for an excellent evening. Our Kir Royals arrived within minutes of sitting down and the the food was perfect. The warm roquefort salad and beetroot salad were both light and flavourful, the steak and belly of pork mains were delicious and filling, and a bottle of house wine went down perfectly. We had no room for desserts so finished instead with mint tea. The service was friendly and attentive throughout - really lovely staff. We have been to Cote in London many times, the food is always good, but Glasgow set a new benchmark for great staff and service. Well done!
Lovely French brasserie style restaurant . Staff are very welcoming and attentive and service through is excellent . We had the early evening menu (Mon -Fri ) which is excellent value at £10.95 for 2 courses and £12.95 for 3 . Great selection on a la carte menu as well -just be aware that unless otherwise stated on the menu there 's no sides with main courses so you may wish to order these separately . The soup starter we had was nice ....but no bread was served alongside it -so order that separately as well. There is a 12.5% service charge added to your bill -as it is discretionary you may ask to have this removed . Would definitely go back .
Great food and service and terrific value for money. You can splurge but if on a budget the set menus have great choice too. They don't rush you to eat and leave and give you time in between courses. Lovely decor. I took my niece out for lunch for her 18th birthday and just said to staff in passing what we were celebrating. The staff then went out of their way to make the lunch extra special for her. She was delighted as was I as it was so unexpected. I would recommend it to everyone.
Nice welcome, staff were lovely and very attentive. When the food came we weren't disappointed. We've been before and it was nice then too. All was near perfect...until.....we asked for the bill. It's a good job I checked it because...it turns out that they do what we hate!...they add on 12.5% to the bill for service charge, but to notice you really have to look hard. They do say (in small writing) that it's optional, but we paid it. Now, we feel we should be free to choose what we want to pay for a tip...not be told what we should pay. What really upset me though was when we were leaving, the 'attentive' staff ignored us as we left...making us feel that they were annoyed that we didn't leave extra tip??...has it put us off?...maybe...time will tell.
We ate off the set menu. £10.95 for two and £12.95 for 3 courses I think. Amazing value. Fantastic food. Everyone of the 6 of our party loved their meal. I had the tomato soup and butterfly chicken. Then we were persuaded to have a dessert. The chocolate mousse was recommended and it did not disappoint. Unfortunately we did not catch the name of out waitress, but she deserves a mention, she was friendly, knowledgeable and funny. She is Spanish with dark hair...she is an asset to the restaurant. Top marks.
Excellent atmosphere and food. Enjoyed a visit with friends & had the 25th anniversary menu. Service was friendly and efficient but we didn't feel rushed or that they wanted the table quickly after we had finished our meal. Would recommend booking as the restaurant was busy when we arrived. Portion sizes were good and food was perfectly cooked and well presented. Prices for drinks are reasonable given the quality. There is a 12.5% service charge but it was well deserved so didn't mind paying this.
Chose our dinner from the a la cartel menu.I had the fish pie which was excellent and full of fish.My husband had a sirloin steak and peppercorn sauce as an extra.The sauce came in a tiny jug which was about half full.I spoke to our waiter about the quantity and he immediately returned with another jug.When the bill came the second jug was given as a goodwill gesture. I have experience of other cote properties namely Highgate,Sloane Square and Covent Garden, I have never been disappointed Good food ,good value and excellent staff
Cote Brasserie is a very pleasant place for lunch. The food is very good and reasonably priced. It can be a bit noisy if you're sitting the middle of the room and the restaurant is busy but there is a good atmosphere and efficient, friendly service. Be aware though that a 12.5% service (optional they say) is added to the bill. I assume this is because the restaurant is part of a London-based chain where this practice is common. Personally I would rather give my tip to the serving staff in cash.
Lovely weekend meal, great to be there on 1st of the month to sample new specials. My friend had the steak frites, and I had the wonderful half chicken with rosemary gravy - fantastic. Puds were great, I had the lemon brûlée, delic 😄 The birthday glasses of kir were a great start. Highly recommend, for food, atmosphere and all the staff. We eat here often and never are disappointed. Great start to my birthday. 😄
I had received an email to say that because it was near my birthday, my guest and I would receive a complimentary glass of Kir Royale, even although I had completed the email form which had been sent to me, It was a pity that I had to remind them that I was eligible for the complimentary drink, the assistant had no knowledge of it. The food was fine, but I think there has been a change of staff who were not quite as endearing and chatty as the last time I was in, which is a pity, as some of the comfortable and cosy atmosphere seemed to be missing. Regards, Sheena Rea
Lovely meal, great staff and overall a very good experience. We arrived at the restaurant and were shown to our table straight away, drinks were ordered and arrived quickly. We were not rushed at all to order our meal but when we did order it arrived quickly and very warm. No complaints at all as we had a really good dining experience. It's the first time we had been there, but we will definitely return.
Really enjoyed our experience for our anniversary lunch, and the reward which was I lovely bottle of wine, meal and service was excellent will be going back in the future both Edinburgh and Glasgow I would recommend this company to everyone, looking forward to going back in the near future , Keep the standards up and you will be on the up and up thanks again Mrs Gresham .
