Always amazing service and food at Cote Godalming. I would just say that the Gluten Free Complet could do with 2 pieces of gluten free toast instead of the just the one as that looks measly.
This was our second visit to Cote in Godalming. Delicious food, excellent service and a great ambience! We will definitely be returning for another meal.
The staff at Cote were all very polite, friendly and very helpful. Both the food and the service were excelent. The restuarant is nicely laid out and not overcrowded. Had the weather been better, it woud have been nice to have enjoyed our meal at one of the outside tables.
Convivial atmosphere. An extensive choice of food & wine. Food well-cooked & beautifully presented. Friendly service especially from our waiter Liam. We always enjoy going to this restaurant.
I've had dinner here several times and everything has been perfect. But breakfast felt like disorganised chaos and we had to keep asking over and over for things. For example we ordered 4 hot drinks and an apple juice and some water. The cold drinks arrived 10 minutes after the hot drinks after we asked again. On a positive note we had 2 young children with us and the staff were brilliant at creating child size portions at our request. And i'd asked for a different breakfast because I can't eat eggs. So I replaced the eggs and mushrooms in the full english with the avocado and spinach from the veggie breakfast. Unfortunately, I didn't get a tomato (not sure why). The food was delicious. Oh and we had toast arrive with the breakfast, but we had to ask for butter, which arrived once the toast was cold - could this come as standard in future, maybe? The food tasted good, but i'd love the breakfast service to be as efficient as the dinner service in future.
Delicious food, wine and pleasant ambiance. The staff were courteous and attentive. The only problem - and the reason a full score was not achieved - was that the complementary glass of champagne with our 10 year anniversary menu was delayed because there were no champagne flutes available. We had hoped to drink it before we ate any food. Instead we had to ask for it when our starter arrived, saying we would be happy to drink it out of an ordinary wine glass. Two flutes were then found in the kitchen - and they weren't warm from washing! This may be a small problem, but care needs to be taken to ensure drinks can be provided at the right time.
Last Friday my husband, daughter and I had a very enjoyable lunch at Cote Brasserie in Godalming. The food, service and surroundings were excellent. I should like to thank and praise the staff. My husband's walking stick was unfortunately taken in error by another diner. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. They surprised us by purchasing a new stick from a local shop to enable my husband to walk safely back to the car park. Service above and beyond the call of duty! Our grateful thanks - your kindness was much appreciated.
We went to Cote in Godalming for my birthday lunch. We were attended to straight away and was asked if we wanted to sit inside or outside. As it was such a lovely day we chose to sit outside. We opted from the set lunch menu and kids menu, which had a variety of meals and everything we are was delicious. This is the second time of going here and it won't be the last. It was a lovely meal and all the staff that served us were very friendly.
Nice warm atmosphere and friendly staff. In fact when we arrived my partner asked if it was possible to have a seat that was more comfortable to sit on (due to his poor health) and without question sought to find if it was possible to help by looking and offering availability of seating available. We were very impressed before we had even looked at the menu. Nice to be given the choice of water free of charge which makes for an added bonus. The food was superb and a good range of choices. We will be returning.
It was our wedding anniversary and we wanted a light lunch. WE had booked online. The reception was good and we were offered a choice of tables. We decided on the Lunch menu with a glass of champagne to start. My wife had the Golden Beetroot, which she said tea very good, whilst I had Breaded Calamari, which again were good. This was followed by Sea Bass fillet for my wife and Chicken Chasseur for me. Both were good. We finished with desserts again both good. A pleasant dining area, good service, and good quality price.
Excellent Restaurant in great Location. Good service although the staff were not familiar whether the 2 course special before 6 ( on Sat) was available or not. The staff should have a brief so everyone is singing off the same song sheet. The table beside us was told the 2 course was only available until 6 but it was only 17.55 while we were told there was no 2 course special last Sat. Consistency is the key
Nice ambience in this restaurant, food was very good prepared great just not much of it, and have to pay for extra things like veg with your main course, which all adds up and its not cheap to start with, but I guess it is a slightly better class of restaurant, so you should expect that. Staff were very friendly but not over the top, had a member of the party who had special dietary requirements and the menu for that (gluten free) is very good lots more choice than other restaurants.
The restaurant wasn't busy. We were shown to our table by a very pleasant man. The waitress gave the impression that she wanted to go home early and we were an inconvenience as we were the last booking of the evening at 20:15. The food was delicious but our side order didn't arrive with the meal. After five minutes we had to go into the restaurant from the outside area and ask where this was. It had been missed either from the order or by the kitchen. This wasn't enough to spoil the meal or stop us from returning but their act could definitely have benefited from being as sharp as on previous occasions.
We were nicely greeted as always and offered a choice of tables. Drinks and nibbles and the starter and main were promptly served. An ice bucket provided for the white wine. The duck was perfectly pink and the haddock also very good. I had minute steak which I have had many times before but this piece was slightly grisly and I could not eat it all as a result. .there was a large and rather noisy group in the front part of the restaurant where the ceiling is low and at times that made sharing our own conversations rather difficult. Perhaps large and potentially noisy groups could be placed where the ceiling is higher?
We were very impressed with the staff in your Godalming restaurant. My husband and I do not eat animal products and we were concerned about the limited menu (just onion soup and salad). From the initial phone call the manager was helpful, Irena the waitress greeted us, the charming chef Osama came out as soon as we arrived to discuss our choices and he was able to make us a delicious meal. We will definitely come back as long as Osama is there. I hope other restaurants follow his lead.
A very decent Cote restaurant in a beautiful setting. The building itself is picturesque and the table layout is well thought out as the tables are not too close together so you can relax. Outside seating looks good although we ate indoors. Tasty food the seafood linguine was my favourite, friendly and attentive staff, we had the wine on the specials list which was also good and reasonable in price. Thanks will be back.
Enjoyed the meal/occasion with good friends. Uncomfortable with the discretionary (though automatically added) 12.5% service charge - I realize that this is standard across Cote restaurants. To challenge it infers dissatisfaction with the service received. While I was satisfied with the service, my norm is to add a maximum of 10% for (good) service and feel 12.5% is too high, especially in the way it is presented. Also there were bones in the (assumed) fillets of fish ordered by 3 of my party.
My husband and l were really keen to try out the Cote restaurant in Godalming for our anniversary. As the Cote restaurant was where we went on our first date. The food was really nice and it was served quite quickly. The staff were friendly and the cost was very reasonable. I would definitely recommend it, l would like to go there again for either breakfast or lunch.
Nice environment and good service. However, food wasn't up to the normal cote standard. In particular: - My wife asked for a fishcake from the set main course menu, but without the egg. She received the fishcake, sans egg, but also sans the sauce that normally comes with it. - My steak frites was much tougher than usual, as experienced at other restaurants in the group. - The peach crumble taken as a pudding was not properly cooked, the crumble was soggy, not a proper crumble at all. We will revert to using your Chichester & Winchester outlets I'm afraid.
Elegant interior making a comfortable and spacious setting for a meal. Food well cooked and presented. Classic French dishes, good ingredients and full of complementary flavours. Small details such as a perfect vinaigrette are worthy of comment. The service was efficent and friendly. Staff work hard but discreetly to ensure that all goes well. This restaurant is a pleasure to visit and invite friends to.
