About Côte Brasserie - Sloane Square
Very few restaurants have the same ability as Côte Brasserie to establish themselves in consistently premium locations and offer genuinely affordable food, yet never look out of place. This, believe us, is not easy, but it certainly goes to show the calibre of Côte Brasserie as the most loved family of French restaurants in the UK. This particular Côte is in perhaps the most premium location of them all, sitting pretty on London’s Sloane Square – right on the boundaries of Knightsbridge, Belgravia and Chelsea – and offering all-day French dining that we simply just love. The food is varied, always fresh and always prepared with care.

Sloane Square. Côte Brasserie. French food. It’s all happening in London and we’re excited. Côte Brasserie, we’re sure you’re aware, is a name known across the UK and this great capital for casual, accessible French dining that still makes guests feel as though they’re dining in a restaurant far further up the price ladder. Whilst the food at this Sloane Square restaurant is of top quality and the surroundings are elegant, the team manage to make the whole experience feel tailored to you. Côte Brasserie in Chelsea is proof that a restaurant does not have to be independent to make you feel special.
All-day dining is the way at Côte Brasserie, hence this London restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Whatever time of day there are traditional French classics as well region-specific dishes that will keep your buds in a pleasant state of anticipation, so begin your day perhaps with a complete French breakfast or croque monsieur or madame. For a light lunch, why not try salmon fishcakes with a baby spinach salad? Or for dinner, a classic beef Bourguignon or roasted belly of pork. A short walk from Sloane Square tube station in Chelsea, there’s little not to love about Côte.

Friendly, prompt service and a good range of dishes on the set menu. Although the restaurant was busy, we were able to chat comfortably and enjoy the ambience. Very good food and excellent value for money. I'm a strong supporter of Cote. Margaret. ( Brighton)
We had a memorable evening to celebrate a birthday - staff were charming and professional, service was excellent, food was really delicious. We loved it - thank you!
Good value for money brasserie - varied menu and choice of wines. I would go there again and represents good value for money particularly for this part of London - or even London generally. Can be quite busy.
We were a party of six yesterday and everyone felt they had enjoyed their evening enormously both in terms of the quality of the food and value for money.
The food and service were executed just right at the right price not always an easy task. For example, the poached egg in the egg Florentine should have been runny it was - thus cooked just right. Not always an easy task in a large and busy restaurant. The Chicken dish provided another good example as the Chicken breast was nice and moist and tender. The accompanied sautéed potatoes were crisp and not over-cooked. Again not always easy !! Finally the Apple crumble was presented in its own petite cast iron dish and delivered on flavour and texture. This was taken from the daily set menu thus was good value for money. Are you listening the more expensive eateries that don't always deliver !!!!!!! Having come to London to go to the Royal Court Theatre this was a great lunch rounded off by a great production. Is this replicated across the range of Cote I do not know but would be willing to find out and I would be happy take up the baton of a un-bias customer don't hesitate to ask - email@example.com I await your invitation !!
This restaurant is always busy. It operates to a formula with a fixed price menu according to whether 2 or 3 courses are chosen, and a wider menu from which individual dishes may be chosen. The menus change every month. The style is that of a traditional French restaurant (including proper napkins), and the dishes are selected, cooked and served appropriately by a multi-national staff (many Italians at this branch of the chain). The starters are often notably inventive for a low-priced menu, always including some soup or salad dish. Lately there has been a particularly successful crème Du Barry (cauliflower soup) on the fixed price menu. The Breton fish stew I had on Sunday from the wider menu was delicious and amazing value.
First time there and surpassed our expectations completely with lovely customer service and friendly staff who made us feel very much at home. The food was delicious with a very appetising menu to choose from and at such great value. Will return without any hesitation but remember to make a reservation because it was very busy and we noticed there had been some disapointed customers who tried to get a table on walking in, and despite the staff doing there best, it couldn't be helped and left people frustrated without a table to sit down too. Aside from that a very well run and lovely brasserie. Thank you again for giving my wife and I a day to remember.
We very much enjoyed our visit. I had been before, however, my guests had not and both loved the service, the efficient, and the food. It was very busy, and we were glad we had booked,, but, despite this, we were looked after well, and everything went smoothly. Both my guests said they would come again, and look for Cote's near them, as they thought other friends of theirs might like the restaurants, and the diverse menus. It was an enjoyable experience, and good value for money. Recommended.
Both the food and service were excellent, as they were the last time we visited. We ate before a concert and took advantage of the pre-show menue. A happy way to start our evening and we intend to repeat this. The only downside was there was no sign of the free bottle of wine that I was promised on joining Quandoo so I do not hold much faith in a point system. I find it useful to book online but that can be done directly through the restuarant.
We visited Cote before a concert nearby and the restaurant was very busy. We waited a few minutes for a waiter to greet us, another member of staff was at the door but didn't make eye contact with us and seemed preoccupied. When the waiter returned he apologised for the wait, took my name and showed us to our table. Our designated waiter greeted us warmly and all went smoothly from then. Food, wine and service good as always.
Saturday late afternoon. As we were seated, I specifically asked the host for the new vegetarian menu for my friend but it never turned up. We then sat there for at least fifteen minutes with no-one coming to see us - I was clock watching! When the waiter did turn up, he served the adjacent table who'd been seated after us. He then put their order in before coming to us. By this stage, we weren't going to wait for him to return with the drinks before ordering the food and ordered everything at once. ( No upselling of bread and/or olives by the way ) . When the food arrived, it was as good as usual; I had the crab and avocado starter followed by the breaded chicken with a side of chips and the veggie had the baked crottin and the spinach crepes from the regular menu ( he wasn't going to wait for the veggie one ) . We both had the Summer Pavlova special as dessert which was excellent! Of the three adjacent tables of two, two of them were served with an incorrect main course on each table. Our waiter was looking after our station AND the outside tables in the street too. It was obvious that either the staff were over-stretched and mistakes were happening or they weren't very good.
Our first time at a Cote Brasserie and we were very pleasantly surprised. After enjoying our free Kir Royale,(courtesy of the Cadogan Hall, where we were going afterwards), we tucked into the 3 course early evening menu. A good choice of dishes, and great value at £13.95. The staff were attentive and efficient, and the bill for 3 came to an extremely reasonable £76, which included a bottle of the house Blanc de Blancs and service. We will definitely return and perhaps try the a la carte next time.
I had booked on line and out table was waiting for us in the quieter part of the restaurant. The menu had a lovely selection at very reasonable prices. Our food came quite quickly and on hot plates. We said we were going to a concert, and had to leave at a set time, so an effort was made to bring the coffee and the bill at the same time. A very enjoyable visit.
I am a great fan of Cȏte and go frequently to the various Brasseries around London. The food is very good and the menu varied and the value for money is one of the best in town. However, The Sloane Square staff appears to be overwhelmed by the crowds. The welcoming staff is rarely welcoming ! Waiting time for service is way too long even when what you want is the bill and people are queueing outside. It makes no sense. Today the whole experience was redeemed by a very pleasant waiter, hence the 4 instead of a lower mark. They need more staff and a few more smiles.
We had a 5.15pm reservation as we were off to the Cadogan Hall for a Rik Wakeman concert immediately after. We were given a very warm friendly welcome and shown to a lovely window table. The mixed olives and pissaladiere with Rebluchon were superb as was the Duck breast with cherries. The service was great, prompt but not rushed and we left feeling well fed and looked after. Excellent!
I really appreciate this chain and I use many of the restaurants. I use the Sloane Square one about 6-8 times a year and mostly the service has been very good, friendly. Today was not very consistent, had to signal for assistance three times, to order, to pay, to order another drink and it was quite difficult to get someone's attention. I would say that 3 out of 10 interactions were friendly and efficient. The rest were sour-faced and unhelpful.
We always use this restaurant when visiting an evening show at Cadogan Hall. The pre theatre menu is our choice & we have never been disappointed. All I would say is to book ahead if at all possible. On one occasion I forgot until a few days beforehand & was unlucky. We had to use a nearby rival establishment & the experience just wasn't the same.
My favourite for food of all the cote's we have visited. We come here regularly when visiting Cadogan Hall for concerts and we have never had a bad meal. Staff are lovely services is fantastic, prices are good for London too. Will be back soon ! Always book when there's a show on though as it gets really busy with there pre theatre menu.
Very good meal, delicious chicken and fries with a creamy mushroom sauce. Lightly dressed green salad. Very good chocolate sauce with vanilla ice cream for dessert. Fresh mint tea to finish. Couldn't be better. Very good service and great atmosphere. All in all a success and good value for the centre of London. Cote - keep on doing what you are doing!
We ate at Cote Sloane Square before a visit to the Theatre. Everything was great. Booking was really easy. The ambience in the restaurant was lively. The staff were friendly and efficient. We ate from the early evening menu - 3 courses for £13.95 - which was excellent value and delicious and the wine was good and reasonably priced. Recommended.
Have been many times. The formula obviously works. The staff are friendly and efficient. The ambience is just what you would expect in a French Brasserie -busy but not so noisy that you cant have a conversation. We chose the Fish soup which was excellent followed by the moules mariniere and the charcuterieboard and both were good. Glad we had two starters and not a main as there was ample food
Nice lunch and at reasonable price. Lovely happy waiter served us. As I was meeting friends I hadn't seen for 2 years I wanted a quietish area to catch up. Was initially seated near a noisy family with sreaming children looked on by doting parents so I politely asked to be moved to a quieter table - was moved without any problem and fuss. Would go back there again.
Attentive staff who appear to love their work. The best eggs florentine I've eaten in years and everything else was delicious. My guest was "demanding" but the waiters were charming and kept her happy. We were going to Cadogan Hall for the 1930h performance and your staff served us quickly. This is why I keep coming back.
This is one of my favourite Cote restaurants as cooking consistently good and staff always cheerful despite Sloane Square being a busy venue. My friend had whole plaice which was beautifully cooked and good value while my chicken dish was tasty too. Only downside is the ladies room as you have to go out of the restaurant and into the adjacent hotel and then downstairs to use them.
We had the pre theatre dinner menu, which was excellent value, with lots of choice. The service was also very good, and the only slight criticism on my part was that my steak wasn't as hot as I would have liked so the butter on top didn't melt properly. A hot plate would have resolved this, but the steak was lovely and tender, and the frites were hot!
All 3 of us enjoyed our dinner. Excellent value for money using the set menu which is available until 7.00. Had the whitebait, fish fillet and the apple crumble all for £13.95. Others has the pate starter and minute steak with fries. Attentive service, location on Sloan Square and VFM make this a great dinner experience.
The service and food were excellent. I was particularly impressed as I was delayed arriving and phoned the restaurant to say I would be late and would they please inform and seat my nearly-95-year-old uncle who would be arriving earlier. They did so and were very welcoming. He in fact recommended Cote: he loves coming here.
Excellent pre theatre menu. Seated and served promptly and there was a good choice on the menu. Waiting staff very pleasant and efficient. Good price for two or three courses. This is not fine dining but a very good french restaurant with good choice at a reasonable price. Food was served piping hot which is always a bonus. Would definitely return especially for a pre theatre meal.
Service was slow to start with, not their usual start, they were not overly busy. once we were served food came along as it should and was very good. we had to ask for water 4 times which was not good. The menu was very good and the specials excellent. we were given our Reward bottle of wine. overall good and we would go back again.
Good food as always but despite the waitress doing her best the service was slow (even with a 5.45pm booking). We needed a quick meal (which we normally have when we come to Cote) but this time it took nearly 90 minutes rather than the usual 60, so we were almost late for a concert we were going to. The place was packed but if it is always that full then you need more staff. Please don't make us abandon you
We just breakfasted here prior to the Chelsea Flower Show (very handy) and couldn't fault it. The service was friendly and prompt. The food was good (and they have gluten free options including bread). The restaurant was attractive, clean and pleasant. Would always recommend Cote restaurants as being reliably excellent and very good value.
Friendly service. The servers are much more willing to help than some of the other restaurants in the neighbourhood. Food good quality. Wine good quality. Very good value. We go to this restaurant very regularly and we recommend it. The clients are cheerful people too in general so the overall atmosphere is quite pleasant.
An early evening pre-concert visit dining from the fixed price menu. We were initially directed to a cramped table towards the rear of the restaurant, but were moved when we asked. Food tasty and still represents good value for money, but do feel that Cote are slowly dumbing down their fixed price menu to maintain prices when a modest price increase and more interesting menu would make a better proposition. Would probably go for the a la carte next time.
Very good service. Whole party just wanted steak and frites and served without any issues. Had table in the corner which I guess is where they put big parties so recommend if you have a big crowd and want space to yourselves. Feels like a private room if you want that vibe,
I would firstly like to comment on what delightful staff who were helpful and smiled despite being busy. The food was very enjoyable and reasonably priced. Very nice bottle of wine. The whole set up is very well run. We have occasionally been to other Cotes before and we will certainly return
Took my mum late Saturday afternoon for a Mother's Day treat. We were earlier than booked but that wasn't a problem at all. Everyone one of the staff that served us were lovely. The food was wonderful - simple but super tasty which was perfect for my mum (and me of course).
The food excellent. The staff knowledgeable & helpful. The noise DREADFUL. The acoustics in the Sloane Square restaurant are appalling. Not only that, the restaurant has piped music! You should know that piped music anywhere is an absolute no-no: it is unnecessary and tacky, & degrades the image of Cote restaurants. With the poor acoustics & piped music, it was difficult to hear each other & every now & then, we resorted to having to shout.
A meal at Cote is a great way to start an evening at the theatre or a concert.We can always find one close to most of our favourite venues.The food is excellent,the staff are always well informed about the menu and are friendly.My only complaint is that the lack of soft furnishing means that the noise levels can get high.
Decent food at a fair price. I never understand why they go on about complimentary water nor why it takes so interminably long to get their attention to get and pay the bill when it's time to go (always detracts from their good service, and you'd think they would want the table back once there are no more orders coming)
The atmosphere and service at the Sloane Square restaurant was very pleasant. Even thogh my intial choice of asparagus starter was not available there was a good choice of alternative and the smoked Mackerel proved to be a very tasty. Overall each course was satisfying and just the right amount of food. I would certainly recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Arrived on a VERY busy Saturday at 6pm for a pre-theatre meal before going to Cadogan Hall round the corner. What an excellent choice it turned out to be, service was great. The set menu was brilliant value and we even got a free drink on showing our Cadogan tickets!
This busy Cote is well organised, so you are greeted instantly, seated comfortably and served well. The food is up to the usual Cote high standard - we enjoyed scallops, roast lamb and the signature creme caramel. It was never clear who was "our" waiter but all the staff worked together to keep drinks and courses delivered promptly and accurately.
We had an excellent meal at the Cote in Sloane Square, I chose Cote to meet 4 friends for lunch as I know it is reliable and good French food. The service is very professional and the price very reasonable. We highly recommend this restaurant and the chain in general.
My wife's food (mashed crushed potatoes) were cold and the replacement potoatoes were in fact burnt. And a further replacement was to late. after discussions with a management member we were offered free sweets which whilst wasn't the same as removing the cost of the main meal was accepted. We received the bill with just a 10% off discount and not the sweets, this was resolved after further discussions but still left the discretionary service charge on, not sure why as it should have been removed. Otherwise good restaurant atmosphere. Probably a one off on a busy day
It is always a pleasure to go to the ever-popular and buzzy Cote Brasserie in Sloane Square. The staff are welcoming and cheerful, and the food is reliable with a good selection of traditional dishes and seasonal options. The lunch and pre-theatre meal option is good value. Booking recommended.
Pleasant atmosphere; good pre-theatre menu, excellent value. Would have appreciated more vegetarian choices. Silly, unnecessary fuss when we were unexpectedly joined by another guest: although we had plenty of room at the table, the waiter said another chair couldn't be provided, as "this would mess up the whole system." A quiet word with a more senior staff member, and common sense prevailed: our guest joined us, and added another £12 to the bill.
Always reliable in terms of quality of food (value for money) and service. We had a starter from the main menu plus two times the daily menu at 12.50/person. The portions are not overly big and there are no side vegetables. With three glasses of wine we spent £56 (incl service). Not cheap but was a good meal!
Pleasant, unpretentious and affordable place with attentive and attractive staff. Good location. I always have the granola and berry dish for breakfast so can't comment on the menu, though my friend's salmon and scrambled eggs looked good too. Busy at lunchtime so you need to book (I have been unable to get a table on various occasions).
We were late arriving and in a hurry to catch a train. We were served a very good 3 course meal with 3 glasses of excellent Pinot noir plus a beer for £61.00 including a 12% gratuity. Remarkable value and the staff were charming although very busy. And the meal was served in just under an hour!
I am a regular to the Sloane Square brasserie for lunch and love it. I always ask for a corner table and for Erica and almost always get both. I always feel pampered and well taken care of. The food is delicious and prices perfect. Many thanks!
