Staff were very attentive, showing us to our table immediately and looking after us throughout the meal. There were six of us and we all found several options for our starters and mains each settling on something different to each other. The wine selection on offer was very good too, although there was only one cider - albeit very good. We all had a great time and remarked on how good the food was - especially the steaks. I had a ribeye and my wife had a fillet - they were both fantastic. Deserts were, as usual, more limited in choice but what we had were also excellent. The bill for six of us came to £275 which, when considering the quality of the food and the great service(including two bottles of chablis and several bottles of the excellent French cider) was pretty good value. This was the second time we've eaten at Cote Worcester and it won't be the last!
Excellent service, fabulous choice and wonderful food as always. One of our favourite places to eat in Worcester. We would highly recommend the restaurant to anyone
An excellent evening with friends (their first time at Cote Brasserie....they were particularly impressed by the quality of food & the price ) .It is always a joy to go there ,whether for coffee ,lunch or dinner....either as a couple or with a group. The warm welcome and attentive but unobtrusive service is a delight and enhances the overall experience.
This is a fabulous restaurant which we visit regularly and can say we've never been disappointed. The staff, service and food and drink are outstanding
This is my third visit in the last month or so. Each time the customer service has been excellent and the food has been absolutely delicious. Even to the point where desserts have been ordered even when still very full from the starters and mains. The young lady manager (with long dark hair) has made some excellent wine recommendations choices - which I have re-ordered on later visits. She also really made my friend's birthday celebrations by arranging for the booth we were seated in to be decorated in a celebratory theme. I am delighted to say that the very young staff (particularly the young man with blonde hair) are incredibly polite and yet not to shy (as youngsters) to converse and make you feel very welcome. Thoroughly recommend this as an exceptional night/afternoon venue.
Regular visitors at lunchtime where the food is always very good indeed and the service also however our visit on Saturday evening was less impressive due to poor service. There were four of us booked in at 7:45. We were given the choice of tables which considering they were nearly full was a nice touch. After ordering drinks it wasn’t until after our starters arrived some 30 minutes later that the wine turned up. The bread and olives were a disappointment, the black olives tasted off, no side plates and no knife for the butter. The starters were very good apart from the French onion soup that was tepid andcserved without a soup spoon. Our wait for mains was a good 30 minutes after starters had been cleared and the bread for the Fish Stew was delivered about 10 minutes after the stew itself. We had to ask for drinks rather than being asked on a few occasions. All in all the food was very good the service overall was poor.
We had a lovely meal with good friendly service. It was very busy, but the food was delivered in good time. Only two problems....the first was that we were billed for complimentary drinks. This was taken off when I queried. The second was the 12.5% service charge also on the bill. It was explained that this was not compulsory and that we didn't have to pay it. We were assured that the staff shared out the money in a meeting one per week, so we paid it. However, if you do a rough calculation, based on the numbers of staff and the 12.5% of each bill, it would make the staff extremely well paid. Its therefore hard to believe that the full amount is shared in that way. Having said that, I would definitely go again.
Overall a really enjoyable evening, table of 4 people, order Spanish Jamon and olives for the table with a round of drinks. the waitress was very helpful as we’d mentioned that my father was had a gluten allergy but forgot to mention when we’d actually ordered the food. Our waitress dashed back out to confirm and we changed his starter and saved him from an upset stomach. All the food arrived quickly, hot, well presented and also very tasty! As someone who’s worked in bar and restaurants for nearly 8 years and counting I can’t really fault the service or food. Only that the drinks/cocktail/spirt menu is slightly lacking compared to some other high street competitors, but that not something that the individual restaurant can change. Thank you for a lively evening.
My good friends and myself started the day of with having a breakfast which was very tasty and very good value I could not believe what we had,It started us all up for the day ahead as we were all going to a ladies day at the worcester racecourse,The young lady (Sarah) that served us was very attentive and she seemed to be very professional in her role .I am quite a regular customer at cot'e and will continue to come back again and again,also I think your rewards are fantastic too as on this day I had my breakfast for FREE !!!
Our main courses were excellent. The service was friendly and helpful. The only disappointment was that they put the service charge on your bill. I prefer to leave a tip which I choose, not what has been calculated for me. I know you can ask for it to be removed, but you don’t want to spoil an occasion by making a fuss and asking for it to be removed, which may imply the service was not satisfactory. It was good service, but I like the tip to be at “my” discretion. We were all a bit miffed by it. If it wasn’t for this I would of given a 5. And a 6 if the crepe dessert had been freshly cooked.
