Visited Cote Brasserie on West Nile Street on a busy Saturday afternoon in January. To be honest I was expecting a watered down version of a London chain restaurant French style brasserie. That’s what it was but it was very, very good. Since the Brasserie on West Regent Street in the 90’s and bon auberge Glasgow has been devoid of any Quality French food.
Champagne for the same price as prosecco. Really nice staff, Great French menu .Rich beefy French onion soup with a great cheese crust on top. Squid that was clean and tasty, garlic aioli dip. 28 day dry aged steak that was excellent I think it was nearly £3 for a small ramekin of béarnaise sauce bit of a rip off. Crème Brulee was as good as I have had in Brasserie Lipp in Paris. Even if the food here comes from an industrial estate in London it hits the table in perfect condition and along with the friendly staff made it a great Saturday afternoon dining experience.
I usually leave a cash tip but had no cash. The bill arrived with a 12.5% service charge. I checked with the manager and the staff receive all tips. I don’t think this was always the case.
