About Côte Brasserie - Oxford Circus - Market Place

The authenticity of the food has been augmented by the simplicity of the design … The anchovy pissaladiere, the warm flat bread from Nice were nice and crisp and pungent, the duck, chicken, pork liver terrine was full of flavour … the lamb succulent
– Nicholas Lander, Financial Times

Staff was always very thoughtful. The food came in fast, which is always good at breakfast time. I would definitely recommend having breakfast at Côte Marketplace

Super choice of food on the menu, we dined as a group of 6 and there was plenty of choice to suit everyone's taste. Service was fantastic too. Very close to Oxford Circus and was perfect for an after-work dinner with the girls.

We had a good meal as always, the food was simple but of high quality and the wine is fine too. What makes Cote stand out is customer service and value. The staff at market place are consistently excellent even though it's a very busy restaurant.

A lunch time meal with a friend before a Wednesday Matinee Classic at the nearby Regents Street Cinema. Excellent selection on the lunchtime menu. We both chose Eggs Benedict as starter, which we both enjoyed very much. The poached eggs were perfectly cooked. I followed that with the tastey Toulouse Sausages with puy lentils. My friend had the chicken breast which was served with a wonderful mix of Mediterranean vegetables (fennel, yellow peppers, butternut squash) which were reported as "Delicious" We accompanied this with a glass of "house red" which was beautifully full. I am glad we had booked (on line and easy) as the restaurant filled up. Good food. Good service. Good value.

As great fans of Cote Brasserie, the Market Place location near Oxford Circus didn't disappoint. Our second visit with a guest from Suffolk, Zoltan the maitre d' assisted my reasonable knowledge of the chosen wine with specifics about the Cotes de Gascoigne, that would normally be reserved for a sommelier. Delicious fish, intriguingly served, despite our regular booking the team accommodated our wish to take advantage of the summer sun outside, whilst being careful not to 'abandon' us in the street. The calamari, served by request as a main course, engaged our guest and the Bank Holiday allowed the atmosphere to unashamedly lull us into a three-hour lunch! When's the next visit, please!

On ordering dinner, I was offered the Anniversary menu but declined as I don't drink alcohol or eat sugar. But on bringing our main course, the server called the manager to our table who cajoled me into ordering the Anniversary menu, saying they would substitute the champagne for as many non-alcoholic drinks as I'd like and he told the server to bring me another cranberry juice as soon as mine finished. As it happened, our server collected our main course plates and never returned to our table. I never got another cranberry juice or any other non-alcoholic drinks. I never got dessert. I eventually waved down a different server at the end of a ratger unattended evening and ordered tea and coffee. Then on leaving I was charged for the full Anniversary menu. I was also charged for my guest's beer, tea and coffee. Why didn't I complain? Because I was with an important client who, having travelled two hours to get to the medting, I didnt want to make uncomfortable. A shame. Because I regularly have business meetings over lunch and dinner at your Cote branch. Unless this has a fairer outcome, I'm not sure I will again. Debi Bester CEO Department of Change

We love this place. Great service, helpful staff, good food (the toilets might be a 5 minute walk away but we forgive the bad design! lol) Don't be put off by that - just a quirky thing that makes us laugh each time we visit. We're regulars for a reason. Service is great but they're used to tight turnarounds so if you're not in a rush they will slow down and give you all the time you need which is why we go here - we start at 6.30 and leave after 10! a real evening out!

Warmly greeted on entering the restaurant with friendly, efficient service throughout plus great advice from the sommelier about the wines. Magda was our waitress and the sommelier was French. The food as always at Cote, was excellently cooked and very tasty. The set menu is outstanding value, with a good selection. Cote always serve consistently high quality food ( I have dined at the Cote in York, Lincoln, St Martin's Lane London, as well as at Market Place, near Oxford Circus London). Highly recommend eating at any Cote!

Our meal last night was generally good but we've had better experiences at this restaurant. The starters and mains were all fine but seemed slightly dry when delivered to our table, as if they had been kept hot for too long. Deserts were all good except for my crepes, which were serioudly tough and rubbery. In hindsight I should have sent them back. It's disappointing that a French style restaurant can't get a French staple dish right. Hopefully it was just an off night because we normally feel that Cote is one of the better chain restaurants. We'll try them again but if there's a repetition of last night then we probably won't return.

This is my favourite Cote restaurant in London - one I usually visit while on a work trip in the area. The service is efficient, which was particularly important this time round as I was on a clock. My friend and I had a great time and the food was absolutely delicious. I love the set menu that changes every month - it offers excellent value for money! I will definitely be back soon.

Located very close to Oxford Circus tube station. this Cote Brasserie was excellent. The noise level was low so you could talk despite the restaurant being packed on an early Saturday evening. The service was excellent from our Greek waiter. The value from the early diner menu was excellent and a nice choice. The plates of the mail course were not warmed and this is the reason for not getting the top rating, But on commenting on cold plates the food was immediately replaced. Recommended.

Courteous welcome by staff. We were asked if table offered was okay. Prompt, polite service. Super food, well presented. Excellent value for money on the 2 or 3 course menu of the day. The waitress even managed to bring me a 'cortado' which is not on the coffee menu. Lovely, lively restaurant to spend time in - and immaculate toilets, always a sign of a management that cares about cleanliness!

We enjoyed our meal very much. The service was very good - not hasty, sufficient time to have our pre lunch drink, ample time to have our first course and then the main course. the staff kept an eye on us so that we did not have to call to be served. We finished our meal with a coffee which was on the house plus a glass of congnac.

Regular decent Cote menu. Good mains. We had chicken and fish parmentier - very happy with these though no malt vinegar for the frites (chips!) The staff were great and really tried to find some - much appreciate. But it should be a standard condiment. We are in London after all. We never have desserts there as too much chocolate and cream and the lemon tart is much like a Tesco one. The service was excellent for the most part but dropped off at the end of the evening. It took ages to get the bill and then nobody came to take payment.

I've been to this Cote many times and always have mixed experiences. First we waited 15 minutes to place a drink order. It was really hot inside so asked to sit outside. Was told that 3 people could only fit in the front and there were no tables free. I went outside to take a call and the tables of 2 down the side, almost all had 3 people sitting on them. Finally managed to get a table outside and place an order. Part of our order was forgotten and we received it after we finished the rest of our food. When we received the bill there were an additional 2 glasses of white that we hadn't ordered. They did apologise and take it off straight away. Overall average experience, looking for a better experience next time.

Clean and friendly restaurant just off Oxford Street. Idealy placed for a pleasant meal during a shopping trip or when visiting the nearby London Palladium. As with all the restaurants in this chain, it offers an A la carte service or a 3 course dinner for £13.95 (Spring 2017 prices) from the set menu. Becasue of its location, it does, however get busier than several of their nearby restaurants and may be worth booking ahead if you wish to ensure a table.

Nice friendly restaurant with a good atmosphere. My wife and I ordered from the pre theatre menu. We had 3 courses. The food was well presented and tasty at a very competitive price. The staff were professional and attentive but we were asked on two or three occasions if we wanted any more drinks even though we had not finished those we had. This did not however overly detract from the overall experience which was good. We would go back.

Even though we were almost half an hour late for our booking the staff were friendly and attentive. Small hiccup - sides didn't arrive with our main courses. We kept being told they were on there way. We had almost finished our main course when they arrived. When we went to pay our bill they had not charged us for them which we thought was a very good gesture of good will and would definitely go back again.

Big fan of Cote but going to the Oxford Street branch at 7.30 of an evening was a big mistake it was heaving and although the service was polite and efficient the wait for our first coarse was nearly 25 mins . The staff were very apologetic and it wasn't really a huge problem for us as we had nowhere urgent to be but if you're in a hurry be warned. Food delicious as always.
