This dinner was one of the best we have had on our UK visit this year. The food was excellent, and our server was lovely.
Consistently excellent food and service never dissatisfied with anything thank you
Superb! Restaurant, looking forward to going back always great. Thank you
We found the service fast and efficient - just as we’d hoped because we let the staff know that we were going to see a theatre show. The food is consistently good. Though I found my starter - mushroom and brioche - bordering on cold. However, that was my only complaint.
Lovely food and attentive service. Our starters were sublime; the French onion soup was rich and tasty and the Boudin Noir (sautéed French black pudding with caramelised apples, poached egg and frisée salad) was delightful. For the main course we chose Côte de Boeuf to share (chargrilled 22oz aged rib-eye steak, served sliced off the bone, with frites and béarnaise sauce), which was perfectly cooked and delicious. A mishap in the kitchen meant our steak was delayed but the waiter and manager wasted no time in rectifying the situation; our main course was on the house. We were very impressed with this. Mistakes happen it's how they are dealt with that counts. Top marks to Côte Oxford. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable and memorable evening. Would certainly eat there again, sadly we live in Margate so it will be a while.
I was very impressed with the way our visit was handled. We'd spent the day at Blenheim Palace and got our timings wrong for our booking. On phoning the restaurant to adjust the booking to a later slot the request was handled courteously and without a problem. On the booking I stated that one of my party had a nut allergy. We were all extremely impressed by the way an assurance was given on arrival that care would be taken to ensure that no nuts came into contact with the guests food, even though prepared in an environment where nuts were handled. Also to be given a list to look at of ingredients for dishes was superb and much appreciated. The meal was thoroughly enjoyed by all. It was so nice to have French staff serve French food and also recommend the perfect choice of wines for our dishes. Once again I was pleased to take guests to a Côte Brasserie.
We got married that day in Oxford and booked a table at Cote Brasserie for the dinner with our two witnesses. I had mentioned it with the booking. On arrival we were blown away to find a beautiful bouquet of flowers, a wishing well card and a bottle of bubbly on our table. The staff was just incredible on all levels. Not just on a professional but also human level and contributed making our day just that little bit more special. We had 3 vegetarians amongst us but as Cote offers one of the most extensive exquiste vege/vegan menus in Oxford I have seen it was easy for us to choose. The food was outstanding and considering the quality very reasonably priced. Frankly, we can't wait to go again and the only regret we have..is that we have not been before. Incredible Find! Thank you so much , :)
Very nice evening with friends. Very busy when we arrived, and we were placed at a table where people were coming and going and bumping into us all the time. Far too many tables crammed into the space available, so this experience would undoubtedly have been common to other diners - for example, the poor chap whose chair was directly in front of the chairs at the top of the stairs leading to the lavatories, so he had people regularly squeezing past him, We asked to be moved, and were. The number of diners thinned out after the pre-theatre crowd had gone, although it did build up again. Staff were very obliging, attentive enough. Food was good and nicely cooked, although presentation could be improved. Decent French grub, though, and reasonably priced. Wine was good. We took advantage of the "free bottle" offer, so well worth going. We paid about £26 a head for a 3 course meal with wine, which in Oxford is nothing short of a miracle.
I have written my review on the Côte Oxford site. I eat at Oxford Côte quite often. The food is delicious and the staff very helpful and friendly. The friend I was with also enjoyed eating at Côte Oxford and will certainly visit again.
Really nice atmosphere, super fast service and delicious food. We were really happy with everything we ordered and as one plate was taken away it was replaced with the next course. If there are any criticisms at all, it would only be that the service was so fast we didn't properly relax into conversation like we usually do going out for dinner and they add 12.5% tip to the bi automatically - we usually pay a tip anyway but it might make some people uncomfortable that they can't choose their own tip unless they want to have an awkward confrontation with a waiter to ask them to take it off. Otherwise will definitely come back!
