Further Information

In France, a brasserie is a type of restaurant characterized by its relaxed atmosphere, and Côte Brasserie is bringing this French institution to the United Kingdom, with a chain of esteemed restaurants located across the country. Combining a casual ambience with lots of French elegance, Côte Brasserie’s Deansgate branch is equally as popular for a leisurely breakfast as it is for a special evening out in Manchester city centre, conveniently located on St Mary’s Street. Here, the little details matter and the ingredients are all chosen with care, for example the sea-salted butter is from Guérande, and the pork rillettes that are sourced from the famous Rungis market in Paris.

On the menu, expect to find a number of French classics, from French onion soup and tuna carpaccio for starters, to mains like the traditional beef bourguignon, fish parmentier and poulet grillé (chargrilled butterfly chicken breast with wild mushroom, crème fraîche and thyme sauce, served with gratin potato). For a lighter snack, we recommend going for the spinach and mushroom crepes or the tuna niçoise, but whatever you choose we’re sure you’ll be delighted with your choice. To guarantee a table at Côte Brasserie in Manchester’s Deansgate, making a reservation in advance is recommended.

An absolute gem! Perfect from the start. My wife needs gluten free options due to coeliacs and they accommodated everything perfectly including ensuring a trained and informed member of staff took the order and correctly served the meal. Our waiter was calm, interested and informative and the food was utterly superb. Well done guys. We had an amazing evening with you and will be back again soon! X

Had a lovely meal last night at Cote Brasserie in Manchester. Chicken Liver Parfait was delicious and Duck Confit was lovely and tasty and crispy as it was supposed to be. My friend enjoyed her calamari which were perfectly cooked but was less keen on her cod wrapped in parma ham as she felt they didn't go well together. We both liked our desserts - Tarte Citron with crème fraiche and raspberries and lemon crème brulee with raspberries. The waiter was really pleasant and friendly and couldn't do enough for us. The only criticism would be that I had to order my second cider twice - I can only assume he didn't hear me the first time or forgot it and that the green salad my companion ordered went to the table next to us by mistake but luckily the recipient realised and passed it over to us. I will definitely be dining there again as the location is central so really convenient for instance for going to the Royal Exchange Theatre afterwards and the décor is pleasing. Sitting by the window also facilitated a bit of people watching as I was facing outwards which is always interesting. Nice ambience too.

Food was excellent and service very good until the end. Although my wife's coffee arrived quickly, I had to remind the waiter about my dessert order (it may have actually been on the way at that point), and then we had to wait to ask for our bill. When we did, it hadn't arrived after 5 minutes so we asked another waitress who brought it straightaway. However, we then found we had been charged for an extra glass of wine so a new bill had to be printed. I was tempted to request the service charge be reduced to 10% but we had enjoyed the meal so I didn't bother. Having thought we had plenty of time to get to our concert, it then meant a brisk walk to the Bridgewater Hall. The staff were very pleasant and if it hadn't been for the issues mentioned, I would have rated the experience 6.

Well booked pre theatre meal for 4 .....so restaurant knew in advance for our circumstancewith request for set menu. We got through 2 courses without hitch and nicely served food......but sweet course seemed to wait for ever and ever.....so much so were the only ones in restaurant bar an odd table of diners.. We had to cancel our sweet with a waiter.... as we were wanting to move on for our planned evening out and pressed for time now on the minutes... Although the Manageress was keen to make amends and offer a free sweet on a future visit ....the excuse given that ordering apple crumble takes a whole 8 minutes to bake....after a wait of over 4 times that length and people seated after us on either side of us had eaten their sweets and well left the restaurant....that excuse did not really fit with us? After our comments she suggested we tell them on dining to tell them when pressed for them if pressed for time? Over 1hour and 30 mins to serve a 3 course set menu is more than ample time to serve it and eat it without a rush in our eyes.... Disappointing service and weak excuses by staff...have eaten at this establishment many times and cannot now believe that before being seated you have to start meal on wrong foot asking staff to be snappy with prompt service?

Good food, what I would expect from a brasserie. Not too fancy or pretentious, but good quality. Relaxed atmosphere. Attentive staff, but not irritatingly 'over-attentive'. Efficient service. nb: music a bit loud & intrusive for my taste & can make conversation difficult, especially if sitting beneath loudspeakers. Food & good conversation go together & It's a pain trying to be heard over background music! A bit more light over the tables would be appreciated - it's actually difficult to read the menus in parts. Other than that, I like this restaurant & have been back several times.

We were in Manchester for a conference which finished early so we decided to go for lunch at the cote, it is situated just off Deansgate the main shopping area and close to the financial area in King St. As I have come to expect from Cote restaurant's, the food was excellent. The set lunch menu offers exceptional value for money with multiple choices of dishes to suit everybody's taste. Although the restaurant was exceptionally busy the service was first class, our waitress really looked after us and make the whole dining experience a real pleasure

Excellent service attentive staff and good food. Only quibble is serving meals on wooden platters. I came to the retaurant with my Mum and her main course - shepherds pie was presented on a wooden board. My Mum wasn't happy with this and to be honest neither would I have been. I asked if my Mum wanted a plate but she didn't want to make a fuss. I'm sure there wouldn't have been a problem and our lovely waiter would have changed it. The point is why do this in the first place? Let's just have food on plates instead of pandering to quirky serving options. Let the food not the crockery do the talking!
