Excellent service , polite staff and great food as always . The beef is delicious , best around . Varied menu with specials which is great for locals
Dined here Saturday evening. We opted for the celebration menu. Crab mayo starter was delicious. I followed this with the sea bass - equally good. Perfectly cooked. I ended with one of my favourite desserts, crème caramel - wonderful. I certainly recommend eating here. The restaurant was very busy but the staff were attentive without being obtrusive.
Beautiful food and service was lovely didn't bother you too much so could get on and have a lovely meal. Would go back without a doubt.
Excellent food and service- really enjoyable experience again.great menu and ambience - shown straight to table and given attentive service all evening. Waiter was great without being too invasive.
We booked this meal to celebrate my birthday, taking advantage of the free Kir royale. On entering the restaurant we were very quickly greeted and shown to a table. The menu was quickly delivered and the free drinks were served. We made our choices from the menu and enjoyed a bowl of very tasty and juicy olives while we waited for our mains. I chose the fish parmentier and my husband the steak-frites. We were both happy with our choices. The parmentier was packed with fish and prawns and there was just enough topping without it being too heavy. My husband enjoyed his steak-frites, which he has ordered on previous occasions. He was very happy with the quality of the steak which was very tender. We then shared the cheese platter instead of having a dessert. Having chosen this option before we were aware how generous the portions are so we opted to share and were quite full! The service was, as always, very friendly and efficient. We will certainly return.
Great setting, excellent food and fabulous service. We were given an amuse bouche of concentrate tomato soup that was just so full of flavour it set the taste buds alight and was a brilliant start to the meal. The Breton chicken was so delicious and moist with a simply lovely flavour. All the food was delicious and well cooked and presented and the service was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble. A nice touch with the Calvados to finish was that they warmed the glass to perfection which is something most restaurants just don’t even bother with in this country. Will definitely be visiting again soon.
We have eaten at and enjoyed Cote restaurants in several towns and cities. This visit was up to the usual high standard. One temporary disappointment was that we were told by very apologetic staff that our favourite sweet, profiteroles French style, with ice-cream in them instead of cream, was sold out, so we had to choose another. However we were told that they would be back on the menu the next day. We decided to call in just for the sweet and coffee for a lunch-time treat. We were warmly greeted, presented with our delicious profiteroles, and then only charged for the coffee. Magnificent service! A disappointment more than adequately compensated for! We shall be back at Cote as soon as possible.
We were 5 minutes late for our reservation in York but greeted warmly as usual. We weren't rushed to order either pre lunch drinks or our food - I must add though that the restaurant at 14:00 on a damp and grey day was not particularly busy. Our waitress was very pleasant, helpful and attentive as is the norm. Our starter, main course and dessert were all very well presented, attractive and tasty - also just the right size and not over filling but extremely tasty. I shall return again, soon.
Superb food at a very reasonable price. For starters I had calamari which were unbelievably tender, and my friend had egg florentine followed by the hake and I tried the steak, both of which were beautifully cooked and delicious. The French fries really were French fries, really crisp and not greasy. Nothing was disappointing and it was actually beyond our expectations. I was very pleased because it was an additional birthday treat for my friend. We are both definitely coming back very soon, birthday or no birthday.
Great reception and super table....staff really engaged with us and gave us a complimentary drink , which was much appreciated. Slight change to the Menu for August , but still plenty that we could all find appetizing.Goujons of sole particularly good.....as was the Tuna. We are booked again for this Tuesday evening......a good choice when meeting up with friends we have not met for sometime......as staff, food and wine are certain to be up to the mark.
I had previously ate in your restaurant in Wimbledon village and really enjoyed it. My husband is a chef and was very impressed with the food and service there. I went with my daughter to York and she loved the food as much and me. However the first waiter we had I felt uncomfortable with, wasn't as professional as I expected. However another man replaced him who was very nice. My first kir was very weak but the second I asked for had more cassis in.
We received a very warm welcome even though the restaurant was full our table was ready. Unfortunately there were not enough staff to cope with the volume and we had to wait about 15 minutes for us to ask for a drink. Despite there only being waitresses and 2 Managers they coped very well. The food was up to it's usual high standard and generally it was a very good evening. A lovely friendly waitress made up for the initial slow service.
This was our third visit and once again we were not disappointed. We took friends with us and they were very I impressed. We ate from the set lunch menu which allows for plenty of choice. The food was excellent and the service could not have been more attentive. We look forward to booking a table in the near future.
This was my first visit and I was very impressed with the ambience, the quality of the food and the friendliness and attentiveness of the staff. Everyone in the group agreed it had been a very enjoyable experience. The only minus was the automatic adding of 12.5% service charge to the bill but you don't have to pay it. I
This was our second visit to Cotes...came last year on a weekend break away in York...the food is first class and the staff are so attentive. Would definitely recommend booking this restaurant before you travel or you may miss out ...they get booked up very quickly...thankyou once again...we look forward to coming back once again
Cote Basserie -York is part of the Cote chain and meets the same consistently high standards and quality of the group. The service is very good (we were having white wine and the waiter chilled the glasses with ice) and the food and drinks are typical French with quality flavours. Recommend the steak frites and the breton chicken as good examples. We will return.
This visit was a first time to a Cote restaurant and was excellent. The food, service and ambience was very, very good. We will certianly try this one again and also look for this chain elsewhere. In particular, we were verfy impressed with the courteos and efficient staff at York. Keep it up.
We had a table of 6 and we all really enjoyed our brunch. The French breakfast really hit the spot. This wasn't our first visit and we will definitively be back. My 2 year old knocked her glass of OJ off and the glass smashed which was a bit embarrassing. Dealt with swiftly.
We had a great night at Côte Brasserie - York. Food and dessert were very delicious. Staff were very friendly and professional. Highly recommend it.
We absolutely love this place! We are never disappointed! We had the early evening menu which included sea bass, delicious! The menu is very good, lots to choose from! The service is excellent, nothing is too much trouble! The wine was excellent and desserts gorgeous! We will definitely be back!
