A very good breakfast , attentive staff -we were well placed within the restaurant for our party - 1 child , 1 disabled . All these things gave us a lovely Sunday morning .
Excellent food/service. Problem with the dessert which the staff rectified immediately. Love this branch of Cotes
Shanon the new Manager always make us feel welcome. She is very attentive to small details. Our experience is always pleasant.
Great meal staff very friendly & polite I always know I can get a great meal with you as I am coeliac.
We had a brilliant afternoon at Cote Sevenoaks today. We took my granny out for lunch to celebrate her 89th birthday, and the food and drinks were great. Portions were generous, and everything I tried was delicious. What really made the experience though was the incredible service. My gran is in a wheelchair and her hearing isn’t the best - when I explained our requirements, we were seated at a wheelchair accessible table in a quiet corner of the restaurant, so that she was able to hear everyone easily and join in the conversation. Our waiter, Vito, absolutely charmed my gran from the start and made her feel so special. He was very chatty and extremely funny, and made sure throughout the whole meal that everything was perfect for her. There were some really thoughtful touches - complimentary drinks, a kids ‘activity pack’ for my gran (which was intended as a joke, but she actually loved it!), dessert for my gran with a candle in (and the whole restaurant sang happy birthday to her - she got quite emotional!)... at the end of the meal Vito even wheeled her outside the restaurant himself to say goodbye. She kept saying “he’s so lovely” and “he’s the best waiter I’ve ever met” - I honestly think he made the meal for her. She’s already asking to go back, so I think we may have to become regular customers! Overall, I was so impressed by the entire experience. My gran had an amazing time, as did everyone else. Thanks so much to all the lovely staff, and especially Vito, who was an absolute star!
Thank you for your request for some feedback on our recent experience at Côte Sevenoaks. My wife and I dined there on the evening of the 15th Feb 2019. We have been regular diners at both the Sevenoaks and Chislehurst Côtes and in the past, have been very pleased with our meals However, our meal last Friday was big disappointment. The starters were nice, Crab Mayonnaise and Steak Tartare. My wife ordered the Half Chargrilled Poulet ‘Breton’ and I the Roast duck breast. The Chicken arrived looking very anaemic, with pale skin and without the garlic butter. We brought this to the attention of the waiter who brought the butter and put it on the chicken. The chicken was so cold that the butter did not melt at all. On cutting into the meat it was clear that the chicken was not properly cooked, it was still blood red inside. We spoke to the waiter about it who said he would replace it. He explained that the Breton Chicken was first cooked in stock and then grilled and that my wife’s chicken had probably been at the end/bottom of the batch. Having thought about it my wife could not face the thought of another chicken and she decline to have it replaced. The table next to ours also ordered the chicken and theirs arrived with a crispy skin and grill marks (looking much as the one on your website). Looking back on it we don’t think that my wife’s chicken had been grilled at all. The Roast Duck breast was also a disappointment – I have had it in the past and it has arrived with nice crispy skin and looked like it had been carved from a full duck breast. This time I was served what I can only describe as round medallions of duck, no crispy skin. It was a poor imitation of the dish shown on your website. To be fair we were offered a discount against our bill, we were not charged for the Chicken or the drinks (not such a great offer for my wife as she was the designated driver and on water – but I enjoyed my beers and G&T). Service was also a little lacklustre. In the past, we have had one consistent waiter/waitress. This time we had a succession of different people looking after us.
Hi, This food was the BEST I have had eating out in the last 7 months. everything was fabulous. I had the Moules to start with and the proven ale sauce was perfect, just the right amount of kick. Then I had the Chicken Chasseur with was Devine (although I did mention to the lovely waitress when she cleared the table it could have done with something green on the plate like a sprig of broccoli?) as there was only mash and the lovely lovely sauce.), then I had the WORLDS MOST DELICIOUS Creme Caramel...Wow...I am an excellent cook and my friends who came with us is a superb cook too, and she recommended it saying "it won't disappoint" and it didn't, it was much better than even I can make, just like a Creme Brûlée with a soft caramel top....ooh, I can taste it now. wines were nice if not a bit on the prices side, think that could be much cheaper, we had a Bergerac first £23.50 excellent, and then a bottle of house white £19 which is a bit on the prices side as it was not the best house wine I have had, could shave about £3 off that in my opinion (you'd probably sell more). The staff were absolutely lovely and very helpful., and the decor good (but my daughter could tweek it with a bit of umph here and there as a Designer) . Can't wait to return for another fab meal. Enjoy Christine Atkins
My daughter chose to celebrate her 16th birthday at the Côte Brasserie in Sevenoaks and we could not have been happier with her choice. A telephone reservation was made with Manager Extraordinaire Paul, who understood the significance of a sweet sixteen celebration. On arrival my daughter was greeted warmly by the Team and we were offered a complimentary glass of Kir Royale, a lovely way to begin our evening. We were shown to a special 'booth' table, which was adorned with jolly pink balloons and a birthday girl banner prepared by the Team. Menu choices were ordered and served promptly and very much to our satisfaction, with a selection of steak, chicken and fish mains, all cooked and presented to perfection.Desserts were just as good, with the Team presenting my daughter with a chocolate fondant and ice cream pud with a very sweet candle, not only that, but they had gathered, on a very busy Saturday evening, to sing 'Happy Birthday' to her. How kind. We have dined at various restaurants over the years with our now almost adult children, but found Côte in Sevenoaks to be a very special place, as the staff are efficient and attentive, though never intrusive and they genuinely seem to care about their customers satisfaction. Thank you to everyone working last night, but a special mention of gratitude to Manager Paul for leading his Team to ensure my family enjoyed a very special evening of celebration.
I have never written a negative review about Cote but last night's experience, whilst not dreadful, was very mediocre. Despite having booked a table in advance, we were shown to the back of the restaurant to a table where a more 'normally' proportioned couple (we are very small in stature and slight) would have struggled to be accommodated. Co-incidentally - or should that read 'interestingly' - most of we grey haired diners were seated out of sight at the back of the restaurant. The service - normally friendly and prompt - was slow and rather brusque which may have been due in part to our server having a number of tables to attend to. At the end of the meal after a reasonable wait, with no one about to take our payment, we left our money on the table and walked out - no one came to take the money and there was no one front of house to thank us for our custom and wish us goodnight. For the first time I chose to eat from the prestige menu. The choice may have been wider than the normal set menu but the portions were small (one tiny sliver of a fillet of seabass) - so not, in my opinion, worth the extra money. My partner's chicken fillet from the standard set menu was okay, if a little dry but at least it was a reasonably sized plate of food. I hope this was just an 'off night' for Sevenoaks Cote but at a time when restaurant chains are fighting for custom, last night proved that there are some issues that need addressing. I used to recommend Cote unreservedly for its good value food, pleasant ambiance and prompt service but given last night's experience, I shall be more hesitant to do so in future.
Today my wife and I brought friends along to join us for lunch at Côte Sevenoaks! We were greeted by the manager who showed us to our table we soon had drinks served and our food order taken. As usual, the food was cooked perfectly and service was excellent!! We all had a great time! Thanks to the manager and his team for making this a special event!!
