After the theatre we weren't surprised that lots of restaurants in London had already stopped serving dinner at 22.30. We were looking particularly for French food and what we got was almost, but not quite, there. We ordered a good bottle of Bordeaux, but lucky I checked as the waiter was about to open a Syrah. The saucisson we ordered... More

We'd specifically requested a location in the restaurant when we pre-booked as it was for a birthday. When we arrived that area was not ready and we were forced to wait in a much smaller area. The restaurant was extremely busy and we were right in the way. There really is nowhere to wait for a table in this place... More

Met an old friend here on his recommendation - which was entirely justified. Went on a weekday, so it was busy, but not overbearing. They do the usual deal on two/three courses with a useful selection. We were having such a good time catching up we extended to three courses - perhaps helped by the very reasonably priced wine ...!... More

My wife and I decided to visit London over Christmas and booked here at 7 PM on the day we arrived. I called the restaurant abut 5:00 and asked if it would be possible for us to come early as jet-lag has arrived and I knew I would not be able to keep going much longer. The young woman to... More

Food just okay and the portion bit small and the service is quiet poor. They did a mix between the cooked and the sauces with no excuses. Really disappointed for a "French Restaurant". It's fake French.

I came here for dinner on the off chance with my gf while walking around Chinatown, but finding no Chinese restaurants with free seats (everywhere was chock-a-block much to our surprise). This place was equally busy, but no line outside, so we popped in. They were kind enough to find us a table for 2 within 1-2 mins. Service was... More

We specifically came back to Cote after the brilliant service we previously received in your Covent Garden restaurant. We arrived very early for food and drinks, 4.30 infact!! The restaurant was empty bar two tables but we were told matter of factly that they would want the table back after 1 hour. It wasn't like we were only ordering a... More
