Visited La Cote de Boeuf after seeing the reviews on trip advisor, WOW!

Loved the friendly atmosphere created by the owners wife. The waitresses can't do enough for you and made us feel at home.

The food is out of this world, even my fussy 12 year old daughter cleaned her plate and we all took home a doggy bag.

Owners went above and beyond to make our visit special and we would highly recommend this restaurant.

Thanks you for a special night, we won't forget this in a hurry!

Three of us went for an early dinner. We had a few drinks in their small bar first. No cocktail menu but quite a few could be done. Finally settled on a couple of GTs and a Mojito.
For starters two had their special goat's cheese salad which was ok and I chose their poached egg with bacon and red wine which I rather liked. We then all shared their rather large Cote De Boeuf which was enough for all of us and we enjoyed. Their red wines were rather warm so we opted for a couple of bottles of their Rose which was quite nice.

Found the service staff to be okay but management was so rude, and paid practically zero attention to customers, not to mention the food order was mistaken even after being repeated back to us, this is not on. we complained but where merlly brushed aside to keep us quite. not worth the money or second chance.

Not great! Compared to the last owners where the value and the service was excellent this is now a very poor reflection of the former restaurant that was once once a great little local gem.

We have been to this restaurant more than 15 times in the past and came back today to give this place a second chance (under the new ownership), but forget it as it doesn't even come close to the former service and quality you may have experienced!

Terrible service by the owner (the staff were great but almost embarrassed in the way they greeted and dealt with us). My wife had the vegetarian ravioli and even after explaining she didn't like blue cheese but would like a "sauce" with the ravioli was served a plate of dry pasta. Passing comment from the owner was enjoy your meal. I think the sauce was actually thrown across the kitchen by the chef as there was a lot of shouting just before our food came out. Potatoes and ratatouille were very oily and the potatoes weren't cooked through (actually same as last time when we tried their NEW potato gratin).

Great if you are French but forget it if you are not, as the same service and attention to detail is not anywhere near what it used to be! If you want to be ignored and served your food and leave then this is the place for you.
