We have visited Cote Guildford before but this visit really was superb. We told the waitress that we were going to the theatre at 19:00 and she ensured that all of our food and drinks were delivered in plenty of time for us to make the short walk to the theatre. All of the food was excellent but an especial mention must go the Cassoulet do Toulouse. It was just like I had tasted in in Toulouse a few years ago. I suspect that there are French chefs back there somewhere. The service was well above our expectations and we were well catered for in all respects. The service was even more impressive when we remember that all five of us had a different main course. We were seated near the bar area and the attention that all staff paid to keeping the work surfaces clean was most commendable. This was not just one member of staff but three that I noted. Also of note was the provision of proper paper towels on the toilets. None of your despicable hot air driers here - real towels! It is such attention to detail that makes me want to come back here again and again. The one downside was the Group's practice of adding on the gartuity automatically. I always tip for good service but I want to do it personally. In this instance I would of given more that the 12.5% that was added on as the service was so good but instead I left it as it was. The gratuity was optional but once it is on the bill it is a hassle to get it removed. More and more restaurants are doing it but I abhor as an industry practice.
We went to the Cote Brassierie after an afternoon watching a play at the Yvonne arnault theatre . We arrived 15 mins early , the staff were welcoming and very accomadating giving us a choice of tables. I chose the warm Roquefort cheese salad followed by the Tuna Nicoise my hubby The French Onion Soup and a Sirloin Steak . All were served quickly , hot and were delicious. The salad and the French Onion soup ware particularly special. A rainbow of fresh salad and the onion soup with the melted cheese presented beautifully. We finish with apple tart and lemon tart . Which were individual rather than a slice which was great . Would use cote brassierie at Guildford again in a heart beat Thank you to the staff there it was full and still they knew exactly what they were doing
We were greated with a warm welome showed to a choice of tables by the waiter. given a menu a enough time to choose a drink and our preferred menu. Order taken quite quickly. We chose a wine on the menu "cotes de Gasgoine" this was a lovely wine we were also give a complimentary bottle of water. Our starter arrived quite quickly. the main arrived a little too qucikly as we had only just finished our starter but what a delight we both chose the duck it was exquisite. We were asked if we would like to order our desert but requested a little time to digest our main meal. This was also delicious. I had the Creme Brulee and my husband had the ice cream and chocolate sauce. the whole experience was wonder definitely be going again.
No vegan option is a shame. I took my dad here for dinner before the theatre, and he enjoyed his steak. I had the salad with avocado and walnuts but without mozzarella. The waitress was happy to add extra avocado. When the meal came there was no extra avocado. I had salad leaves topped with two mushrooms and two pieces of small avocado (I counted). Extra avocado came on request. Overall this was a very basic salad which was no where near worth the price. Uninteresting, and composed mainly of salad leaves with no interest added. Minimal walnuts. My dads spinach side also didn’t arrive but we were charged for it. Asked for it to be taken off and they took it off along with the service charge. I think terrible practise to penalise waiting staff by taking away tips as clearly an honest mistake, so we paid it anyway as service was excellent. Overall won’t be returning as not an inclusive menu at all and obviously don’t value customers with other dietary needs. One vegan option is standard now and there are plenty of other places that cater for meat eaters and vegans alike. A shame as the atmosphere was good and service couldn’t be faulted.
We regularly eat at Côte and not only is the food exceptionally good and very good value but all the staff are very courteous and friendly. Whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner the food is well presented and cooked to perfection. We eat out regularly and Côte Guildford is my favourite restaurant. The Valentine Menue this evening was very good and the sharing dessert was to die for.
It was a last minute decision to visit Côte Guildford. Our waiter was an Italian guy (sorry I should have asked your name) who was exceptional. Our food was a little slow to come out but he made it a great all round experience by giving us some coffees on the house at the end. This kind of service is rare in the UK to thank you!!
