Great food, amazing staff. Made to feel special and valued as a customer. Can’t ask for more from a restaurant.
Does what it says on the menu. Classic French Brasserie food, not messed around, well designed restaurant, and staff who want to go a good job.
Brilliant food , brilliant service and excellent staff . Will be going there often
parsons Green Cote is always good food and good service.
Here's the review I've posted on trip Adviser: I’m already a fan of nearby Cote’s restaurants but this visit to the Parsons Green brasserie was memorable for several reasons. Primarily, it lived up to my expectations of Cote – good food, excellent food and wine service (by Martina, who was friendly, professional, knowledgeable; a credit to Cote), a venue that was not too noisy and value for money. But 2 things were negative. Firstly, Cote don’t have soup spoons; and as one of my colleagues discovered, eating “rustic French onion soup” with a dessert spoon is messy and not easy! The second negative issue was my fault. I broke the cardinal rule of lunching with friends, by commenting on a B****t issue – my belief in the importance of freedom and how so many of our MPs seem to have forgotten what a precious gift it is. How quickly friends can become rude and abusive! I was only saved by the arrival of the wine and Martina’s skilful service! Lesson learned – no politics when dining out! But I do look forward to another visit to Cote.
Super attentive service but not OTT where you feel like offering the waiter a chair! We've been to this branch of côté à few times. It's cozy and convivial and you are always welcomed heartily once you swish through the velvt curtain protecting diners from draughtshe - why don't all restaurants do this. I travel to Paris a lot and with my hand on my heart and fork in my hand I can say the French onion soup is just as wonderful as its French counterpart. I tried the ribeye for the first time here. Wow! Cooked to medium perfection - beautifully pink and not a trace of blood on the plate which always ruins the chips. Fantastic bearnaise sauce. It's very rare that I say this about eating out but this could not be improved. Othe half's cassoulet disappeared in a flash. A truly superb experience all round. attentive service but not OTT.
We love Côte. It is always good value, and always delivers what it says on the menu.... BUT, not this time. We had the 3 course set lunch ...starter and mains were good. However the Apple crumble was cold. Worse still the waitress upon hearing my complaint proceeded to tell me that a) no one had ever complained before, b) that my partners crumble had been ok (it wasn’t, she just doesn’t like complains). The waitress did replace the crumble with another. But this too was cold in the centre. I did not want to complain again and spoil a nice lunch so I ate it. Upon telling the waitress this at the end she again resisted my explanation with a series of “counter arguments”... but nevertheless she did happily take the cost off the bill. My point is simply this: 1. This type of restaurant depends on “repeatable process”. They must amend the process that uses cast iron pots to serve hot deserts. There is no way the desert can be heated throughout correctly- as so amply proven by my experience. 2. The chef should use a thermometer. 3. The waitress must learn not to argue, however tempting, especially when a customer is being nice and reasonable. I will definitely eat at Côte again. They are an excellent chain of restaurants.
Four of us went for brunch on a Saturday morning Firstly, the breakfasts were excellent. In fact, my vegetarian breakfast (with the veggie sausage swapped for a meat one!) was the best breakfast I have had for a very long time. Unfortunately, the service was so unwelcoming that I would have second thoughts about returning. Let me explain... We had booked. We walked in. The restaurant was only about 20% capacity so was not busy. No one welcomed us. When the waitress did come over and my friend said we had a table booked, the waitress questioned this, when in reality it was irrelevant given the number of empty tables. We were shown to a table right by the door with very little room around it when there were a lot of alternative options. Everything we asked for or did seemed a chore for her. She did not make our experience visiting Cote enjoyable and welcoming.
I am a regular at Cote in Parsons Green. I was taking my daughter, her best friend and her mother out for a celebration dinner which was my treat. The teenage girls had the set prestige menu (with steak). I ordered the rib-eye, the other lady, salmon. The steak was tasty and cooked correctly, the fries, could have been hotter. The starter calamari was delicious. I always order some fresh chopped chilli on the side. The food arrived, we we not given any steak knives. When I asked about the chilli, the waitress abruptly told me that 'the kitchen was too busy'. I then went and found the manager, explained the situation. He was straight away on it - and he made the comment that he knew I was a regular which was nice. Knives promptly arrived, and he arranged for the chilli too. He kindly offered a drink to me - so my friend and I gladly accepted a Kir Royal. Thank you to the manager - but the waitress maybe some more training. Many thanks, Louise
Because it was such a glorious day Cote at Parsons Green was not it's usual very busy restaurant self, The 4 of us, lunch there most Sundays all had the lamb chops & gratin potatoes. The chops were quite large & slightly tough but were well cooked & seasoned with attractive presentation. Perhaps due to the very slow business service was not as good as usual . We are very regular customers & like Cote Parsons Green very much which feels like our home from home. We feel that Cote offers exellent value for money with attractive food. Long may they continue!
