Cote always provides excellent service and great food. the Staff are friendly and helpful. overall the value for money is pretty much unbeatable and there are no restaurants to match it in Hampstead.
Lovely friendly staff, nice atmosphere and tasty food! Cote cater well to all ages and tastes. Always an enjoyable experience and one of the nicest Cote restaurants.
A genuine warm welcome when we arrived the waiters were very attentatuve and the food was amazing . A very enjoyable experience ,we will be back .
The staff were attentive, but not intrusive, and friendly and the food was delicious. We enjoyed a very relaxing lunch here and I'm sure we will return.
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.
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!
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.
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.
Noisy but good and reliable brassiere food. Service was slow but they were very busy and our waiter was very pleasant. We go there often. My only criticism is the level of the noise. They should do something about the acoustics. Great for lunch and breakfast as well
Good meal. There was a rather long wait initially before our order was taken, but after we pointed that out the waitress (who was not at fault as they simply did not have enough staff on duty for the eRly evening rush) apologised and made successful efforts to expedite service from that point on. A good restaurant with an extensive menu and a commitment to looking after customers.
Food was fabulous, however our waiter made us feel rushed as we were hurried out just as we had finished our desert. Furthermore, our experience at cote got even worse as another customer on the table next to us had clearly been drinking too much and kept interrupting me and my girlfriends conversations as he kept trying to talk to us, this made me and me and my girlfriend feel extremely uncomfortable. This made us feel rather upset as we are used to such high standards from cote.
Nice wine and food. The service was prompt and attentive, I was just a little disappointed that they couldn't make the steak tartare gluten free because of the Worcestershire sauce. They could surely have used a vinaigrette or another wine vinegar which is quite common in this dish. Otherwise I enjoyed everything.
Table wasn't ready when we arrived. I asked for a special table as it was my fathers birthday and was put right in a tight spot next to the entrance door. The table was dirty and unprepared. We asked to move to a table upstairs which was much better but table wasn't cleaned or prepared for when we moved there. Starters came but no one came to take our main meal order. Had to keep asking for someone to come over. Once main course eventually came all 3 fillet steaks were cold. It was a real disappointment as I have been to many Cote restaurants around London and was hoping for a great experience; especially as it was our dads birthday. Would not come back.
Overall the meal was good, but my husband's starter was missing the poached egg and neither the chef nor the waiter noticed until we queried it. Once we'd done so it was quickly corrected. The steaks were well cooked, and I think this is what Cote does best. As a chain restaurant it is better than most and good value for money.
Very good, except for a long wait in the lobby before anyone came to show us to our table. Also, we topped up our own glasses, rather than any one offering to do it for us - hardly a great problem, but nevertheless both matters were symptoms of understaffing.
My wife and I always enjoy going to Cote Hampstead The staff are hard working and lovely We are never disappointed by the food and service The portions are just right and the bill does not break the bank
Food was good, and although I appreciate that it was a busy period, service was not quite up to standard. After ages waiting for our order to be taken I ordered the Tuna steak only to be told 5 mins later that they had run out of Tuna. I understand this happens but if i had been told this when given the menu I would have found it acceptable. The way it was done is not acceptable
Service is prompt and friendly, food is always tasty and fair in price, location is great. Interior could have a bit of s face lift though given the fact it is in a very exclusive part of London.
We had a good table upstairs last Sunday night. The restaurant was busy and there is a nice atmosphere. Wine was lovely but one of our steaks was over-cooked although it was replaced quickly and without fuss. The salad and vegetable portions were small. The staff are friendly and efficient and we will definitely go again.
The front of house manager and our waiter could not have been more charming or helpful. The food is not fine dining but is good and excellent value for money. We shall definitely be going again.
Great staff. Good menu selection. Our meals were delicious and reasonably priced. The restaurant was very busy which meant service was slightly slow, but the staff kept us updated on timings and we enjoyed the evening.
Consistently good food and helpful staff . I discovered I had booked for 8am instead of 20.00 !! Despite that the Mangeress immediately found us a table despite the fact the restaurant was very busy .
Excellent value fixed price menu. Plenty of choice and its on the web site so one can check in advance. We eat it at least twice a month. Service sometimes slightly chaotic but always polite and well meaning. Breakfasts are good too.
The menu is great especially at lunchtime. it offers great value for money when compared to the other venues in Hampstead. the speed of service and the top quality staff make it even better.
Excellent service and good value for money food. I like the focus on loyal customers with special offers and regular information about the menu. Some main courses need a bit more attention to detail, but overall a fantastic brasserie experience.
We were welcomed and treated brilliantly. I had the birthday treat bonus of mir Royale for all my guests, which was great fun. The food and wine were good and the service marvellous.
I love Cote Brasserie, for a chain, it's a cut above most restaurant chains, the service is superb and the food rarely fails. I like thier monthly menu which adds something fresh and seasonly to their a la carte.
Staff were very efficient especially the manager who was helpful in arranging birthday drinks transferred from Barbacan to Hampstead. Only criticism was that we were sitting too near to the kitchen so it was very warm in the restaurant
to cotes the greeting was great, the service was excelant is as good as the previous one. food was very good . every visit to cotes in hampstead is a pleasure Js
We always enjoy the food at your restaurants and today was no exception. The service is always excellent and very friendly indeed. Your manager Viale looked after us and we appreciate that.
A great treat as it was mother's day. very good customer service as usal and attentive with everything. Ihave been doing it now since my husband did it tree years ago and i love it. i recomended it.
Best value in Hampstead. Great staff. Always high standard especially the early 2 course menu. Considering it is now a large chain they have managed to remain at a great level.
Great ambience and service and food was lovely and very reasonably priced. Would definitely go back! Would advise booking as busy and I noticed people were turned away as fully booked
We like to go to Cote as we have found the food always of a high standard. The menu changes every month so one has got a good choice: Throughly recommend.
Always enjoy going to Cote Hampstead. The food is always good and the service each we go is great We usually buy the glass as a bottle can be on the expensive side Cannot resist the deserts
Good and affordable food. Friendly staff! I will be back for sure. The breakfast is my favourite. Specially the eggs royalle! For a light meal I reccommend the tuna salad.
we had a lovely welcome at Cote. I was a bit early and my companion a bit late but we were well looked after and not rushed. an enjoyable experience
Veggie breakfast with avocado, vegetarian sausage, poached eggs, bread, tomato and mushroom for me and sirloin with French fries for my boyfriend. Everything was very nice and the staff kind!
