When you dine at Côte Brasserie you quickly see that there is so much more to French cooking than just a load of cream and garlic. Indeed the flavours are rich, but they’re also subtle and delicate.

Great service and fantastic food. Had a Valentines set menu which was delicious. Very busy but the staff kept on top of everything and pace was good
Amazing food and experience at Côte. We will return soon
Amazing food and atmosphere. Thank You Côte, it was fantastic
Excellent food. Super service. Great atmosphere. We always have an enjoyable evening at Côte. The staff are very attentive and continually ensure that the experience is good.
As usual the look of Cote got you as you went in the door I am very pleased to have a Cote open in Weybridge this one I can walk to all the others are by car. We were met by a very efficient and cheerful waitress who checked our booking and led us to our table. Although trade was brisk and the staff working flat out we were seen to very quickly. We ordered our starters a\nd mains plus the bottle of wine that was a reward award subsequently it was for free. The wine was very good and went down very well down very well it was the right temperature and served up very well not sloshed into our glasses. The cutlery being brand new was gleaming and the glasses sparkling. The starters arrived my oinion sioup beautiful and thick but very hot and my lady's was also extremely tasty so we had made good choices. The ambiance was turning better with more people turning up for lunch fortunately no kids whilst we were lunching The mains were presented very well and served by the very busy staff who were quite happy by the looks of things although run off their feet. They ere up to usual Cote standard and very enjoyable, not too much just enough served on plates that did not dwarf the food. We will certainly return as often as possible to this lovely new Cote.
We went for an early dinner 5pm before another appointment so the restaurant was very quiet which was fine. For my 7 year old we ordered a croque monsoir from the children's menu (£4.90) and the other three of us ate from the early evening 2 courses for £10.95 with a surcharge of £2 for steak which my husband and son had. Their steaks were hot and tasty but other than fries had nothing else on the plate not even the lettuce dressing that my 7 year old had and I'm sure the menu said with salad. My seafood linguine was nice but had just 1 prawn. I had 2 glasses of wine, the kids an orangina and my husband a coffee. We had desserts included in the 2 courses which were good but my 7 year old had one as well and they charged the same set menu price. Having not seen the dessert menu I don't know if it was more or less than £6.20 but thought a cheese toastie and some ice cream for £10.95 a lot. The house wine was really good hence my 2 glasses. The bill was £75 which for 4 people 2 courses and none of us were full by 6.10pm when we left was too much money and there was no real offer or concession for a child's meal. I won't be hurrying back!
It was all fine but not exceptional. We had booked in order take advantage of the set menu and my husband was there slightly before me and had ordered a bottle of wine. When I arrived we immediately sorted out what we wanted to order but when the young waiter came over he asked us if we knew what the time was, because he thought we were too late for the early menu. Firstly he should have had access to the time and it was before 7 so had he known the time he would have known that we were OK for that menu. The staff generally, as this is the 3rd time we've been in since you opened, don't seem particularly experienced, not rude but not brilliantly competent. Our starters were nice but we both had haddock parmentier for main course and thought it tasted very much like a ready meal, a bit bland and the individual flavours of the ingredients mentioned in the description were not discernible. We didn't have a pudding so can't comment on that.
I visited the restaurant in Weybridge, which is a lovely little village in itself. Visited in November and whilst the main menu was extensive, the set meal at £18.95 attracted me. Not just for the cost, but for the types of food on it. We had the calamari which was cooked perfectly and one of the group ordered the Pate. For mains, we all opted for the Rib Eye Steak, which I have to say was delicious. If I was charged £35 for that steak I would have been pleased, so all in all a great overall experience. Service was good and included on the bill. Happy to pay it. Would return
Being a fan of Cote restaurants we thought we would try the recently opened one in Weybridge. I am pleased to say we had an excellent meal. My daughter had the fillet steak, it was cooked to perfection and served with fresh crispy fries. I chose the fish parmentier, that too was delicious, and we shared a bottle of the house white which was surprisingly good for the price. The menu has plenty of choice and there is always something to fancy on it! This restaurant chain is my firm favourite for good quality French cuisine, well cooked and served by efficient, knowledgable charming staff.
I have been to many Cotes around the country and I love them for their consistency in food, service and ambiance. This was my first visit to Weybridge Cote. I don't know whether they were having an off day but the service wasn't as good as in other Cotes. After 10 minutes we had to ask for water and for someone to lay the table. Usually the complimentary water arrives before the menus! Once we had that then we seemed to be on the radar and our order was taken. We ordered bread and olives but they never arrived. When we were ready to leave there didn't seem to be anyone around to ask for the bill and then no-one to take the payment. There seems to be plenty of staff but not much organisation coming from the top. We probably will stick with Esher which is closer to us.
