Great for a late night meal.

Nice and friendly staff. The salad was tasty and good size. There were lots of different People there when we were there from seniors to Young families, and everybody seemed to have a good time.

We enjoyed our breakfast at Cote Brasserie so much that we went back for a leisurely lunch later the same day and were rewarded with a Kir Royale each! We chose the set lunch and had mussels, rillettes of pork, cod, steak and frites, peach crumble and tarte au citron (not on the set menu) accompanied by a bottle of... More

We have eaten in a number of Cote Brasseries and have always had great food and service and this was no exception. The menu has sufficient choice to satisfy both carnivores and vegetarians!

Nice food, but it was served on plates which hadn't been pre-warmed, and as a result the meals got cold quickly.

Met here for lunch with friends on a Ladies Day Out. Service was excellent, with attentive waiter and a fabulous elegant young ' femme de table' who looked after us as we arrived and the set lunch menu was exactly what we needed. Excellent starters - soup, pork rillettes, tomato and olive salad, followed by a fantastic steak frites, good... More

My bridesmaids organised me a surprise meal here as part of my hen night and the service we received was appalling. The lady that booked had called ahead to check we would still be eligible for the discount menu and the table was booked for 7.30, she was told, yes, it wouldn't be a problem, given that the person on...

I normally avoid chain restaurants but this is an exception. Food is tasty, service is warm but not overbearing. And the prices are quite reasonable? I've been to several of their venues and have never been disappointed.

We like Cote Brasseries and often eat there when visiting London. However, we usually dine at the ones in Charlotte street or Tavistock and this was our first time to the St.Martin's branch. Sadly it will also be our last. It was incredibly noisy but when we looked around to see if there was a particularly boisterous table we discovered... More

It is situated in a great place in central London - food was OK and staff were average also. It was very busy and they couldn't keep on top of it I think. Nice prosecco and reasonable prices for the location.

We came upon this place by accident, but when we saw the menu we thought this was a good choice to have a nice evening meal. The restaurant is supposed to appear as a French brasserie, but this I felt was a bit far fetch. We got a table in the middle of the restaurant which was a bit of... More
