Standard and quality of food excellent. I visit the muswell hill outlet on a register basis. The staff are so welcoming and accommodating. It is always busy.
The quality of the food is outstanding. And the portions of steak really nice. We will be back. We felt very comfortable and the attention was really good.
It is always a pleasure to visit Cote Muswell Hill and this time was no exception. Antonio one of the Managers made us feel very welcome and even though the steak was a little overcooked he replaced it very quickly. The rest of the meal was lovely and the calamari as delicious as ever. Well done Cote.
Excellent service and location,food is great. Waiteress who serve us on that night who is from Hampstead branch I remembered her, she was great definitely an assets to the company.
My husband and I visited Cote in Muswell Hill for dinner on New Year's Eve. The only menu was a special set meal (of 'Hors d'Oeuvres' plus three courses) for £29.95 or £49.95 with wine pairings, pretty good value for such an occasion. Being non-drinkers, we were a little nonplussed at the poor selection of non-alcoholic beverages on offer, especially as the lemonade (one of my favourites) was 'out of stock' - I do think that restaurants need to up their game on the choice of non-alcoholic drinks or 'mocktails'. Having said that, we were well satisfied with the food: I had the charcuterie platter and Mushroom Cassoulet which were delicious and extremely generous portions; my husband had the Smoked Salmon Tartare followed by Duck Confit - both delicious too. We both finished off with the Crepe Grand Marnier - great end to the meal. (The Tarte Tatin, another dessert on the set menu, was - like the lemonade - unavailable. A shame, especially as we were dining at the start of the evening.) Coffees were delicious (nice and strong) and the price, almost £40 per head including service pretty good for a special occasion such as New Year's Eve. Apart from the quibble about the drinks, I have to remark on the state of the Gents' loos - filthy wet floor and no seat in the sole cubicle. I appreciate that responsibility for this rests in the first instance on other patrons, but the management has to keep the toilet facilities clean. As well that I visited the loos at the end of the evening. For that reason I only gave a rating of 4.
It was very good-we were welcomed to Cote with the special round table I requested-and given free glasses of Kir Royal to cheer my birthday celebration along- We arrived in time for the lunch time menu for my guests- I decided to have the Specials for June- The food was great-everybody enjoyed- The wine was a perfect accompaniment-to a perfect meal- I was given a £50 voucher-as a thank you for being a constant attendee at Cote since it first started- This helped so much with the final bill- I paid by card-and we all left feeling very satisfied and happy- We arrived home safely by car-and we all want to go back to Cote again very soon -for another lovely celebration of French cooking and hospitality- Thank you so much for making my birthday treat special- I will be back for more next week as usual.......
We have been to this restaurant many times; on our own or with friends or family and it never disappoints. This time it was our Wedding Anniversary (27 yrs) and we started with a Kir Royale which came straight away. The service is always impeccable. Lovely table; pleasant atmosphere and excellent food. The August menu was very tempting and there was also a Cotes Anniversary Menu (10 yrs) - so lots of choice! This was good news as we have practically exhausted the usual menu and fancied something different! I chose the veal which was delicious and cooked perfectly. My husband had the sea bass which which he said was very tasty. There are a few good restaurants in Muswell Hill but this was a good choice for this occasion.
I always enjoy going to Cote and have been a regular for some years now , however I was dismayed last night when I ordered one of my favorite dishes, the fish parmentier, to discover that the size of the portion had been reduced significantly! I mentioned it to our waiter was obviously embarrassed and new exactly what I was referring to when I pointed out how small the portion was but he handled my complaint well advising me not to order it again upon my next visit and smiling sweetly. I most certainly will not be ordering it again and I will continue to patronise Cote but I am sad to see that Cote are beginning to cut potions in order to increase profits.
We were 6 people for dinner on Friday night in Muswell Hill branch. We have been in the past quite a few times as we are locals; but this time we were not very happy with the food. I had the fish stew and I thought that the fish was not very fresh, and it took almost 1 hour before the food came to table. Moreover, the waiter never gave us the card with the 'day specials' but when she came to ask for the desserts. I don't know what the issue was, lack of kitchen staff or lack of good management but we were really disappointed this time. I hope that everything last night was just ' a bad day' ;but local restaurants cannot 'afford' to disappoint locals while new restaurants pop up every week in most areas these days.
We had a great time at the restaurant last Saturday, the waitress was very assertive & polite. I had the moules marinièr as a starter where the mussels tasted really fresh with the wine creamy sauce, my wife just had the basket of bread at £2.40 was very reasonably priced. I had belly pork for the main course, the skin was really crispy served with Savoy cabbage & creamy potatoes, my wife had the fish pie which she let me know was very satisfying, we both the bottle of house red which again was very nice which all lead to a very enjoyable experience.
