“Service was welcoming and professional… interesting, well-made, fair-priced French dishes that any modern bistro in France would be proud of”
– Guy Diamond, Time OutWhen in London, visiting the theatre is an absolute must, thus finding the perfect place for a pre-theatre meal is essential. Côte Brasserie Soho along Wardour Street offers French brasserie flavour and is, by all accounts, a high quality yet affordable dining experience. Close to numerous tube stations, Côte Brasserie Soho is the perfect spot to relax and indulge before your show, or simply during an explore of this wonderful part of the capital. Whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner, this Parisian-style bistro has something for everyone – just be sure to book ahead so you don’t miss out.
Côte Brasserie is elegant yet relaxed – a French restaurant that offers a perfect pre-theatre menu so you can dine in style before catching your matinee or evening show. We recommend selecting the three course option for a sublime range of choices. A winning combination is to begin with the leek vinaigrette made with free range eggs, sourdough croutons and chervil, before moving on the wonderfully traditional coq au vin prepared with corn-fed French chicken leg slowly braised in red wine with bacon lardons, chestnut mushrooms and potato purée. Round off your evening by indulging in crumble aux pommes – an apple compote with Normandy butter crumble and vanilla ice cream.
With a commitment to sourcing high quality produce and delivering exceptional service, it’s hard to look past Côte Brasserie Soho as the go to. It is, after all, a name synonymous with tasty French cuisine throughout London and the rest of the UK. This Soho favourite is the perfect spot to have a night out with friends enjoying the vibrant atmosphere of London’s entertainment district and you can find it located on Wardour Street. Go and see what we’re making such a song and dance about.
Excellent pre-theatre meal today - good service and lovely atmosphere. Food was delicious. Great location for theatre-land - would definitely recommend for a leisurely lunch.
Great set menu. Great service and superb value. For a central London restaurant it offers a lot.
Good selection of reasonably priced food, helpful staff and great offers. A brand I like and will definitely revisit in the future. Staff at this branch were especially helpful.
Very prompt and polite service, food good quality and the early evening menu was good value. Although the restaurant was busy we didn't feel rushed, nice relaxed atmosphere.
The customer service was very very good. We were a group of 5 and all ordered a main. 4 arrived together while one arrived 30 minutes later. One of my friend had black pepper allergy and he clearly asked for a sirloin without pepper. It arrived full of pepper so we asked to replace it, the waiter was really nice and helpful and he promptly took the plate and ordered for another one. The staff was very helpful and they apologise for the delay and the mistake. I would say I rate the staff 6 for their customer care but the kitchen 3 for their not great time organisation and compliance with customer request. It was a Friday evening so I can relate these problems to the fact that the restaurant was full. Food was great, well seasoned and perfectly cooked. I had the fish stew that was tasty and very enjoyable, and a tarte au citron that was absolutely delicious, not too sweet, very well balanced. Price in line with the quality of food.
Cote Brasserie is a restaurant I keep going back to. They offer a great range of French dishes at affordable prices. The set menu is excellent value and the ever changing range of dishes on offer is inventive, fresh, seasonal and very well prepared. The staff are very welcoming and professional and, unlike other brasserie style restaurants I've visited, at Cote you never feel hurried. The food is great quality and they have an extensive and well priced wine list with several selections available by the glass. The restaurant has a great atmosphere thanks to eclectic mix of diners and the enthusiastic and personable staff. Heartily recommended for either group or solo dining.
Not the best evening at Côte. Firstly, after about 5 minutes waiting, we had to ask if we could order some drinks. We then ordered food and my husband ordered cold Vichyssoise - it arrived hot and we were then told that, despite it being on the menu, there was no cold Vichyssoise. Another in our party ordered the couscous with a piece of chicken on top. When it arrived it was just plain couscous - not with all the other ingredients that were on the menu. My husband ordered a second bottle of wine, but it took so long to arrive, we had to cancel it (we were going to the theatre and so had a deadline). However the manageress realised the problems that we had had and gave us desserts and coffee on the house and was very apologetic. This was the first time we have had an experience like this despite numerous visits to many of your outlets.
We enjoyed an outstanding, fast service from the entire team at Côte Brasserie - Soho. Miguel, our waiter, made every effort to have us enjoy a really special birthday night. The food on the pre-theatre menu was excellent value for money, in our opinion, and tasted delicious. We can highly recommend this place.
Our dinner yesterday was ok, but we had to rush as we had theatre tickets. I said so when I booked, we ordered our complimentary drinks so the staff knew we didn't have much time. When they got to serve us, we asked them whether we would have enough time for two courses and they assured us we would have plenty of time. The food took a long time to be delivered, and when it arrived, after several prompts from us, both courses came at the same time, which spoiled it somewhat. Nevertheless, we all enjoyed the food very much, it was really tasty, a shame about the delay. Considering we arrived at 5.30, it was not a very busy time, so we thought we will not return there when we are pressed by time. The staff were very polite and service was good though, timing was problematic. Regards Luís del Nero
Lovely polite service from staff who were very attentive. Food was delicious. I started with prawns and then had duck (excellent and fresh cut of meat); my friend started with tomato salad and then had grilled chicken - all her dishes came from a gluten free menu and had cute little gluten free flags on them. Drinks were also good, I had a Kir Royale and then some Chablis. Food was served quickly even though we orders A La Carte. Would definitely return for a repeat visit. Became the highlight of our evening as the theatre was disappointing.
