“Dedication to service, quality of ingredients and sound cooking”
– Marina O’Laughlin, London MetroCôte Brasserie is changing the face of French cuisine in the United Kingdom. Here there is a commitment to creating delicious and elegant dishes, sourcing high quality produce – from Heredfordshire asparagus to Charentais melons from the famous Rungis markets in Paris – and providing guests with the highest calibre of service possible. All this has granted Côte Brasserie success and popularity since their beginnings in 2007, and this branch along St Christopher’s Place in the affluent district of Marylebone in the heart of London is very much a go-to spot for high quality yet affordable French cuisine. It’s not to be missed.
Côte Brasserie at St Christopher’s Place has created a quintessential French atmosphere with a cosy and elegant space for guests to dine in style. Situated in the heart of London and offering delightful street-front terrace dining, Côte Brasserie St Christopher’s Place is open from breakfast through to dinner seven nights per week, offering a seasonal and creative menu with something for everyone. London is the epitome of gastronomic delights and Côte Brasserie is one such French delight focused on good quality food and the overall experience of its valued guests. This Marylebone treasure can be found just off Oxford Street and is an ideal spot to head to after spending the day or late evening wandering the streets of inner-city London.
Step in for breakfast and sample the crêpe complète prepared with two free-range eggs, bacon and shaved gruyère cheese, then perhaps a breakfast bloody mary if you’re feeling game. In the evening why not indulge in the poulet breton? A gorgeous chicken dish with wild mushroom sauce, crème fraîche and thyme. It is also advisable to leave room for a true Côte speciality in the way of crème caramel – a truly heavenly experience.
Plenty of good food. I had duck breast and my wife pork belly after copious startes of bread and deep fried squid. Very pleasant and efficient waitresses.
Fabulous place for a meal in the evening. Lovely food and great service. Would highly recommend it as a great place to go for relaxing meal.
great set menu, good price, wonderful service, would recommend and go back. does get busy so please book in advance. apple crumble was the best!
Cote is always a good choice -met some friends and had a great time. Good, reasonably priced food and a menu with lots of choice. Ambience and service were excellent.
Lovely staff here and we were very well looked after by the French waiter. The food was as always very good and so reasonably priced. My one criticism is this: I belong to the Cote Rewards programme and I booked a table over a week in advance of eating there as I was meeting two friends from different parts of the country. We were given a table right by the coffee machine and service station. It was noisy. I had booked for 12 noon so not peak time, although the restaurant was busy with late breakfasters and so it seemed we had to settle for the table given, but my plea is this - if I go to the trouble of booking well in advance and I am supposedly part of their loyalty programme why don't I benefit from that, why not make sure those who reserve well in advance get a very good table?
Loved the grub. Such a varied & tasty menu. Even the side dishes are great. Atmosphere always great too. Whenever I meet colleagues/friends for lunch, we always go to Cote. On this particular visit the manager couldn't have been more patient & understanding with me, my having accidentally not booked my table through Cote Rewards & there & then helped me do it on his iPad. Additionally the staff who waited on us were extremely attentive & weirdly always one step ahead of our needs. Magical (except on arrival I did have to wait a good 5-10 mins before someone come out which I've found is not unusual at noon). We sat outside (I'm a smoker but we also love the street cafe society atmosphere) & loved the throws but would mention the heaters need to be a bit more powerful.
We booked a table for 12.30, for lunch. Received a friendly greeting. We had increased the number of guests from three to four and were offered a choice of tables. We asked for a booth and, I think, were able to sit at this table for six as the restaurant wasn't too busy. Had the same waitress as the first time we went there, which was part of the reason we enjoyed it so much. The food is delicious and served attractively. We usually have the set menu but there seems to be no reduction in portion size and the menu changes monthly. A real pleasure to visit this restaurant.
I love Côte restaurants but have to say that I'm extremely disappointed that when I occasionally get emails offering me complimentary items and I book accordingly, when I and my guest arrive I always have to remind them of the offer and then when the bill arrives at the end of the lunch/dinner I have to call the waiter/waitress over as the so-called 'complimentary' items have been charged! I find this very embarrassing! There is always an immediate apology and the bill is taken away and amended, but one wonders whether Côte just hope the customer won't notice and will just pay the price at the bottom of the bill! It's such a shame as I've always found the staff friendly and helpful and the food very good. i would therefore usually mark as a 5 star experience. I've been lucky enough to have 3 or 4 of these offers but this has happened every time! Once would have been acceptable as an oversight but every time?! Come on Côte!! Other than that today was excellent - my friend and I had a great time. I hasten to add that I frequent different Côte restaurants but this has happened every time I've booked with a complimentary offer.
Friends from overseas came, this is our second visit this year to this restaurant, it is rather noisy but the atmosphere is v good, international and the waiting staff are excellent, it is an extremely busy restaurant but they handled any problems efficiently and without any difficulty. All in all a good experience: the waiter was 'onit' whereby whatever extra we needed was attended to and within a good time. Food was v nice and price is good value for the meal: we had an offer for a free bottle of wine which was great. I hope we will go here again, we had a vegetarian, a person with nut allergy and all this was taken on board and adhered to well.
The food was excellent. The portions the right size. We had a very hard working and enthusiastic waitress who made good suggestions and looked after our every need. She even found my credit card when, unknown to me, I had dropped it on the floor. I noticed that as soon as the next table was vacated, it was cleaned and prepared immediately for the next people. I can't think of any negatives or faults. One is always greeted and said goodbye to at the end. The price was good value for the food and service we had. I'll be back!!
