Despite being full at Sunday Lunch time we had a warm welcome and was seated as we arrived - the advantage of booking on Quandoo. Great food for all and attentive service. Cote has never let us down and even at the busiest time there staff are great.
Just had an excellent birthday lunch, good table, friendly staff and excellent food, and, of course, the complimentary bottle of wine, and we weren't rushed. Thank you.
It's always good here. Staff are friendly, helpful and professional and the food is great. Booking online is easy. Has never disappointed. Look forward to next time
Wonderful in all respects - very good food and service. I go to the Hampstead branch fairly regularly and have never had a bad experience.
Never disappointed, quality food, large gluten-free selection, friendly and attentive staff (from beginning to end), fast service. It is combining the advantage of a chain (you know what you get on your plate, the menu is quite standard and does not evolve much, but you get the same quality every time and there is a real effort in suggesting French "classics" like Boeuf Bourguignon, Steak Tartare, Creme Brulee... which are all good). The only improvement point is less staff turnover which would create this local restaurant feel...
Went on mothers day at lunch time and was overall pleased. Ordered a main meal and it took quite a long time to come (45 mins), the place was busy but not full yet. One portion of fish was well cooked but the other slightly underdone which was fixed quickly but not ideal. The table next to us seemed to be having issues as their starters were taking a long time and one was served about 10 minutes before the others which is a rookie mistake in a restaurant. Overall good but maybe there are chefs and/or waiting staff that are quite new and need training.
We enjoyed the food, atmosphere and in general the service. We enjoyed a long lunch from 1.15 pm until 3.30 pm when the restaurant was nearly empty. We each enjoyed a 3 course menu but after the main course it was some time before we were asked if we wanted anything else, in fact I had to call the waiter. It;s a small point it happens in many restaurants. Otherwise I believe Cote Brassier offers good value and service by friendly staff.
Lovely brunch ! Attentive service They were able to provide small portions for the children. All components on plates fresh and tasty. I only deducted one point as I thought my daughter would get a small piece of salmon as we ordered her smoked salmon and scrambled eggs but the scrambled eggs good size and I ended up giving her a small piece of mine! I would say standards are consistent as we have been several times.
I love to going to Cote, it does not matter which restaurant you choose, the cooking is consistently good, the service is attentive without being either overwhelming or neglectful, the prices are reasonable and I have never had a poor meal. Therefore I find this my restaurant of choice when meeting friends especially during weekdays. The pre -theatre menu is also attractive and the weekly specials add variety to an already varied menu.
Out of all the Cote restaurants we have visited in London and beyond, our local Hampstead one remains our very favourite and we visit 2-3 times per week. The head chef Marco is very talented and hard working and the new general manager Vallie Perret is absolutely amazing! She is very friendly, helpful, quick and great whatever the situation, a real gem!!! The staff in general is superb! 👍 xxxx
We chose to change tables as we were in the way of the waiters and getting one of the guests' chairs bumped. We were then able to relax and enjoy the usual high quality dishes. We all chose different items off the menu and all enjoyed our choices. Our only moan was that the portion sizes seemed smaller than other Cote restaurants. Delicious food as per usual. Thank you.
We celebrated my parents wedding anniversary at Cote Hampstead. The food and wine were fantastic and the staff was wonderful and helpful. The lovely ladies at reception went out of their way and presented flowers to my parents, such a very nice and unexpected gesture! Highly recommended. We are locals and will definitely visit more often.
I was tempted by the complimentary glasses of cia royals which we then thoroughly enjoyed along with 3 courses. And a splendid house white. Excellent service. Sharp and attentive!! Excellent price also!! Will, and have, (even so soon after leaving), highly Reccomend!!! thank you Cote for making my lunch with my Aunt a really special experience!!
Have eaten at cote many times in the past few years, it is one of our favourite restaurants. I tend to have the steak frites with pepper sauce on a regular basis. This is the first time I have been disappointed. The jug with the sauce was almost empty when served and when I showed it to the waiter he agreed and eventually bought another which was too little too late. This I think to the e trembly slow service. The apple tart which I had for dessert was also not up to the usual Cote standard. Overall my first disappointing experience at Cote.
Delicious food, friendly service. I had the chicken and walnut salad, which was very tasty. Also had the chocolate fondant - nom nom. They were happy to swap out sorbet for ice cream, which I always appreciate. Only reason it doesn't get top marks is that the person I was dining with had to ask a second time for their peppermint tea.
First time eating here and we will definitely be going back. The manager and his staff couldn't be any more polite and attentive. The food was lovely. It got quite busy so would advise to book. I can understand why it was busy, lovely ambiance and setting. A throughly enjoyable experience!
Really enjoyed our visit to this restaurant, especially given the complimentary starters and wine, which we received as part of Cote Rewards. The service was efficient despite the place being very busy at lunch time and all staff were nice and looked after us very well. We will definitely be back!
They gave me a great service. I asked a specific request of a table and they did it. Over all it was a great dinner and experience. One thing was they did not ask me about the deserts request I should have talked to them. Then when I asked the bill, they came back and said happy birthday and told us they deducted the desert for her which I think they could have done better.
Cote is a restaurant I enjoy visiting overall although there is room for improvement both in food and Service. It's usually a very busy place and they seem to be understaffed as the waiters seem to be always under pressure and in my opinion mostly under trained. Food is well presented and tasty although I thought it a little mean that my Duck Confit didn't arrive with any green vegetable. Despite this I'll be back
Service was more casual than I like but mostly friendly. I had a veal chop which was thin and fatty. The side order of creamed spinach I had was quite different from how this place used to prepare it. It now barely fills the dish it's served in and is relatively dry. Imagine dry creamed spinach! The only item I would have again was the creme caramel, which, like the creme brulee, is superb here. Get your act together, please, Cote. There are so few decent places to eat in Hamptead, despite its affluent and well-travelled residents.
