The menu offers many delights of French cuisine and I chose a perfectly cooked Rib Eye Steak with Peppercorn Sauce and a side of Tomato Salad. The meal was wonderful, the service was excelent and staff were... More

Visited this Cote restaurant twice during our visit to London weekend 26/27 November 2016. We pre booked for the Saturday evening but we were 45 mins late due to traffic in central London but having informed them we were held up they kept a table for us. Very busy evening but the service was very quick and the set menu... More

We went here after seeing the play down the road on Sunday. Possibly because it was late-ish on a Sunday, but the atmosphere was very chilled and relaxed. Attentive service with a smile. My wife had the cod goujons (can't really mess those up) and said they were very good. I went for the Breton fish stew. Apart from being... More

I visited the restaurant for pre-theatre dinner. The restaurant has an excellent pre-theatre menu of two courses for about £12/13, such a good choice of starters and mains for the value for money. Food was of lovely quality and good portions for the price. The service was excellent and there is a lovely atmosphere in the restaurant. I would recommend... More

Went to this restaurant after theatre matinee,we hadn't booked but they were able to fit us in providing we stayed no longer than one and a half hours. As we had a train to catch this was not an issue.We chose from the main menu rather than the limited 2 or 3 course offer menu. Very pleased with my crab... More

Visited this restaurant at lunch time with 3 friends before going to the theatre. The service was quick and efficient and the food good value for money. The sea bream was very tasty and the choc pot was amazing! My friends also recommended the steak and chips all available on the lunch time menu. Will definitely eat here again!

We booked to eat after hearing the opera at the Colluseum. On booking we were asked if we wanted anything special and I indicated that we did not even though it was my birthday. On arrival they had saved us a lovely table in the window and produced prosecco on the house. The server was very attentive even though it... More

Our inspiration for the food and design of Cote is a modern interpretation of the many famous bistros of Paris. Inspired by new trends, we are dedicated to serving authentic classic brasserie dishes with a modern twist, using high quality produce at great prices. On the menu, guests will always find brasserie favourites on our a la carte menu such as steak frites, moules marinieres, corn-fed chicken from rural Brittany and tuna Nicoise, for dessert, Cote's creme caramel and creme brulee are much-loved house specialities.
Seasonality and Cote's commitment to sourcing high-quality ingredients results in a monthly changing specials menu, ensuring there is always something new to delight regular guests and gastronomes alike, as well as the excellent value set menu. Open early every day for breakfast, through to lunch and dinner; Cote's atmosphere is informal and friendly.
