“Great service, food over rated!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Staff very friendly and service very quick, but food and drink not really worthy of the prices. Nice atmosphere and lovely decor but expected a bit more from the food after reading reviews on here.

“Superb Food in nice surroundings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

I popped in Cote Brasserie on spec during a weekday evening. The food was excellent, I tried their specials and both the starter and main was very good. A decent choice of wines by the glass was a pleasant surprise. Even though it was mid-week there were lots of people there of all types, from students to older couples.
The service was just right, not too much but always on hand.
I will definitely be going there again.

“At last Franch in York”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

I was delighted that at last a proper French restaurant had opened in York, we live in central York and eat out most of the time, we also live for few months of the year in the SW of France. The food in Cote is better than anything that I have had in France, whoever said French cuisine was the best in the world was obviously a Frenchman. It will always be arguable which is the best restaurant in York but for service, value for money and good food Cote takes some beating.

“Great Service, Good Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

You can't go wrong with Cote and we were grateful that this is one of the few place in York, mid-week, that could accommodate us at 21:30 hrs. Not only that, but our waiter, Will continued to serve us with good humour until very late in the evening; we weren't rushed or cajoled into leaving. Will genuinely provided great service and the food was good too.

“Great value early bird menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

We are absolutely delighted to have Cote in York now. We can be guaranteed of a first class dining experience for less than £13 per person. We have eaten there many times since it opened in early summer and have never been disappointed. The staff are attentive and courteous. My only criticism would be the layout of the restaurant. Unfortunately the kitchen access is located in the entrance area and I feel for the waiters having to negotiate the queue of expectant diners- strikes me there is a bit of a health and safety issue here! They do a fantastic job of delivering the food to the tables though. This place is one of the best eateries in York. We recommend it to everyone.
