We have been to the Covent Garden branch of this chain of French restaurants more than once and have enjoyed it every time. This was our first visit to the St.Martins Lane outlet, also located in the heart of London's theatre land, where we had the three course pre theatre menu. (See sample menu at http://www.cote-restaurants.co.uk/Cote_Food_Wine.html) The efforts taken at... More

I rarely leave feedback on restaurants - This one however was excellent! Fillet Steak and the Creme Brûlée were perfect! (as was the service and wine). Extremely reasonable price for London - will be returning with friends when next in London.

We popped in here one night after being at the Coliseum. The after show menu was speedy and excellent value. The service was great and the restaurant is very spacious.

We always include a visit to this restaurant in our London trips but this time it was with my parents who were celebrating birthdays. For this reason, I had requested a well located booth and, sure enough, we were shown to a very comfortable table in the middle of this bustling bistro by a lovely gentleman who made reference to...

Met up with friends. Was going to book but friends wanted to leave options open. After doing a bit of a walking history tour ended up here with no booking on a Saturday night at 6.30pm. Went I on spec and they managed to get us a lovely table. Staff were really pleasant and welcoming in the end went for... More

My sister & I ate here prior to a Saturday matinee & we were really impressed with our food & the service ! It was clearly a popular place as it was full with people queuing out of the door to get in ! We were given a complimentary Kir Royale & the pre theatre menu was ideal for the... More

Great service, great atmosphere, great value, particularly pre theatre. Highly recommended! We have tried several cote restaurants in London. We were impressed with all of them. They are rather busy and therefore, noisy. But, the service was attentive and polite despite all the noise and pressure. If it is pre theatre, we recommend early booking.

Four of us were looking for a simple lunch and found this nice little brasserie. We all had the steak frites with red wine, followed by creme brulee and coffees. All the foods were well cooked and nicely presented. The service was perfect, the ambience very relaxed and felt unhurried. I would definately use this restaurant again if ever in... More

My first attempt to eat at a different branch of Cote Brasserie failed when we could not find it and had to eat elsewhere. When we went by it later and saw the great pre-theatre menu I was determined to return on my next trip to London. A month later I was back but this time found that the Brasserie... More

We came with no reservation on a friday night - but the nice waitor fitted us in. He was attentive all evening and made sure everything was OK. The pate with brioche was wonderful and the portion large. We had sirloin for main - unfortunately they had cooked it a bit too much, so it was not medium rare as... More
