Great food, friendly and prompt service. A great place for a get together. Will definitely come again.
Perfect evening - the staff are attentive but not overbearing, the food is beautiful and not overpriced. The gluten free menu is one of the best I have ever encountered. Overall it was perfect!
Always a warm welcome, attentive and friendly staff without being overbearing, excellent food and very good value on the three course lunch menu. What more could one ask for. A special touch of a candle in my chocolate pot dessert and Happy Birthday piped in chocolate across the plate :-D A complimentary Kir Royale for myself and my friend added the fizz to lunch for a special birthday.
Always a warm welcome from the team at Cote, Maidstone. Great service and fantastic food always make for a good evening out. Thank you.
This was my second visit to Cote Brassserie in Maidstone for lunch. The first time was as part of a group of 14 and I was very impressed with the way the staff coped. Our food orders were taken efficiently and our food arrived in good time. One of our party had to send her meal back to the kitchen because the mashed potato was cold. However this was dealt with very promptly and a fresh plate of food was provided and an apology given by the Manager. My second visit was with a friend for lunch. On both occasions the service was good, the food delicious and the portions of a good size. The lunch menus, of which there are two, are changed regularly. We opted for the Two course for £10.95 or Three courses for £13.50 rather than the Prestige Set Menu. On this occasion I had the starter of Apple and Roquefort salad, Chicken and Bacon Parmentier, followed by Dark Chocolate Pot which is very rich and decadent. Staff are friendly and attentive without being intrusive and there is a pleasant ambiance. There is an entrance with a ramp provided for disabled and wheelchair users, as well as a disabled toilet. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would have no hesitation in highly recommending Cote Brasserie. I'm looking forward to my next visit to sample more of their delicious food.
I decided to book a table at Cote Brasserie Maidstone for my wife's birthday celebration and am very glad to have made this choice. The dining experience cannot be faulted for the quality of the food, the warm-welcome and expertise of the staff, as well as the atmosphere in the restaurant. There is a good range of choices across the menus (our party chose either the main a la carte, or the set which is available until 7pm) and prices on both menus are very reasonable. The French Onion Soup starter was a great starter on a chilly evening: piping hot, just about the right amount of pepper and a melt-in-the-mouth cheese and toasted bread topper. For the main course the Breton Fish Stew was outstanding - a good quantity of seafood (sea bass, mussels, scallops, prawn, clams and calamari) stewed in a delicious tomato, chilli and vegetable sauce. I sampled the slow-roast belly pork and potato gratin my wife was enjoying, and that too was cooked to perfection. All washed down with a nice bottle of Merlot (again at a very reasonable price) and rounded off with some delicious desserts. We will certainly be visiting Cote Brasserie Maidstone again to explore the menu further.
This was one of those, sadly all too few, memorable culinary experiences in a brand restaurant. I compare with Marco Pierre White in Strandtown, Belfast a few weeks ago, which was dismal by comparison. So, service at Cote Maidstone was excellent. The moules and crab mayonnaise were delicious, but the Chateaubriand was something else . Perhaps the best cut of filet I have ever had and cooked to perfection, raw in the middle, pink then well done for the crust. All accompanied by a perfect St Emilion, served at room temperature. And a lovely Calvados with expresso to finish. Forgot the cheese, a good selection of four cheeses, also served at room temperature, not chilled so that you couldn’t taste them as is so often the case. On that basis, I highly recommend. The challenge is to maintain that standard! I’ll be back.....
I had lunch there with two friends. The food was excellent as usual. We chose from the set menu and all three of us had two courses. Two of us had the apple and Roquefort salad, one had the leek and potato vichyssoise for the first course, then all three of us had the steak frites. Two of us had the Meteor beer, and one a wine spritzer We couldn’t manage dessert, but had teas and coffees. My group of friends meet every few months for lunch and a catch-up. For the last year we have chosen this restaurant not only for the quality of the food and the excellent value set menu, but primarily for the excellent service from the pleasant, courteous young waiting staff. We will be back again in October
Enjoyed a delicious three course set lunch on Thursday with a friend. I chose the starter of baby gem lettuce with bacon lardons, egg and walnuts with a tomato and mustard dressing, and my friend chose grilled sardines with crutons and parsley and lemon. For mains I chose Sea Bream and my friend had Steak Frites, both finishing with the dark chocolate pot, and coffee. Service was very good and the food didn't disappoint at all. This was my third time of eating here and each visit has been an absolute pleasure. We had a table in the main restaurant area, next to the window. There weren't many diners but a group at the rear of the restaurant were very noisy and the noise carries somewhat. If you want a quieter experience, choose the bar area, as we will on our next visit. Overall excellent value for money and delicious food.
Having booked the restaurant a week prior to my event : Mother’s Day. An email of confirmation was sent mid week regarding my attendance of which I confirmed my initial enquiry A day prior to the event I received a physical phone call from the manager confirming yes again if I was attending which again was a positive response On arrival on Mother’s Day we arrived at 1:55 at my table was booked for 2 pm After initial apologies we were left standing for nearly 20 minutes waiting for the said table. Once we eventually got seated the food itself was very nice and was very tasty however there was a service problem initially as the wrong starters were delivered to the table My point being was having confirmed the table twice already we had to stand for over 20 minutes as you expect in the likes of a Nando’s restaurant waiting for a seat and I was lucky that my mother who is 75 was fit enough to do so ! Kind regards Mr Beeney
