We had the pleasure of being served by Rosie today. She was extremely attentive and very pleasant with a great smile. Looking forward to our next visit.
Excellent in every way except one. There were several Easter offers shown online but I wasn't eligible for any because I'd already booked my table. I emailed Cote in advance of coming to see if I was eligible for the offers but was told no because I'd have to cancel my table and rebook through a particular link. I didn't want to cancel incase I couldn't rebook. Madness!
A friend and I visited the Wokingham branch on a Wednesday evening. The restaurant was probably about 2/3 full, tastefully illuminated and with a welcoming ambience. We were shown to a table promptly by the head waiter who remained polite and helpful throughout the evening. We were given water straight away and again when we requested more, which we appreciated. We chose from the a la carte menu, and there were plenty of interesting choices. My friend started with liver parfait which was very substantial and enjoyable. I had a warm beetroot salad which was refreshing but not overly exciting. For mains we had a risotto verte and haddock, wrapped in smoked bacon with spinach and puy lentils. My fish was perfect! Beautifully cooked, substantial and a decent amount of sauce - possibly too much for some people but ideal for me as I like plenty. We finished with a creme brulee and a creme caramel which we both enjoyed. I thought the service was perfect - unhurried and unobtrusive - we were among the last to leave but did not feel pressurised to leave. The prices were very reasonable and the presentation was excellent. My only small niggle was that the table was a little bit small - we were fine, but if we had had more drinks or sides we would have been a bit tight for space. The spacing of the tables though was excellent - you did not feel you were intruding on other people's conversations. Overall a very enjoyable meal and evening, and I would certainly go back again - hoping to try the breakfast soon!
The food, wine and surroundings were, as always, excellent but more importantly for me the service was exceptional. All the staff were extremely attentive throughout, nothing was too much trouble, they were smiling and interacting all the time. I have been to various Michelin starred and fine dining restaurants and I feel their staff should learn from Wokingham Cote on how to make their guests feel welcome from start to finish. The only criticism I have is where you are seated, we were in the middle section of the restaurant with high ceilings so the noise level was bordering on intolerable at times. We were on a round table for six and found it difficult to talk and listen to anyone opposite but all said and done when you have a very loud table of four next to you this will only be exasperated.
Booked a table for 7 online and asked for a special table as it was my mum's birthday. They not only gave us a lovely table towards the back of the restaurant but also came out with a glass of fizzy rose and asked who the birthday girl was - such a lovely touch. Our waitress was brilliant and couldn't do enough, and all the food (starters and mains) was absolutely delicious and completely faultless. I called before the evening to ask if I could bring a cake and candles to be brought out after dinner which wasn't a problem and I arrived early to give this to them. After dinner I didn't have to remind our waitress, she just came out with the cake, candles lit and singing happy birthday. She couldn't do enough. Thank you Cote for a lovely evening.
We arrived to find the restaurant was about a quarter filled, and were greeted and offered a choice of tables. My friend chose a full English Breakfast and was offered a substitute for an item she did not want. I opted for the poached eggs and salmon on a muffin with Hollandaise sauce. The service was leisurely but not slow and the hot drinks arrived quickly. My choice was perfect, the sauce was home made and the poached eggs cooked beautifully. My friend enjoyed her breakfast very much, though we were not offered condiments and had to ask. We both had fruit juice, I had orange juice and it was tasty with lots of pulp, however there was ice in the drinks which seemed odd. We were not rushed and the waiter was quick to bring the bill when we were ready. Overall we enjoyed the meal very much and would definitely go back again.
Excellent food, great service and a nice relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. We normally go for the 'early evening set dinner' at Cote, but as this was a Saturday night we ate from the main menu. A lot of variety in the dishes available (so different from the 'pizza or pasta' experience - good in its own way but limited), and we unusually splashed out and had a glass of wine that was delicious (the cheapest white on the list as well). Finished with one of the monthly specials; Creme brûlée au framboise that was lovely. This morning we both woke up and said "we must do that again soon" - surely the best review you can have.
Cote is one of our favourite restaurants for it's food which we think is hard to beat, the friendly and helpful efficient staff who are now well known to us, as we are frequent diners, visiting every week and sometimes more when we have visitors, who we introduce to a Cote experience. However the reason I have not given a 6 is because unfortunately you sometimes have some very inconsiderate parents dining, who feel that we all ought to put up with their screaming and shouting children, who sometimes run around the restaurant causing a hazard to staff & diners. Whilst I understand that you don't want to lose any business I think it should be acceptable for your staff to ask that they respect other diners. That doesn't happen and so they continue to spoil others Cote experience.
