We ate there several times during our 10 day stay in Salisbury. Service was always very friendly and helpful... so we liked to come back. there are special menu deals for lunch and early evening.

“What a way to end a day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Went to this restaurant after a long day of driving and was immediately was given a complementary drink! What a way to start an awesome experience. I had a steak and my wife had the fish pie, both cooked to perfection. Recommended wine was great. The service was friendly and efficent. Would definitely be back

“Quick and delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

A friend and I only had time for a very quick lunch, and luckily chose Cote Brasserie. A very nice Rose wine was on the table in minutes, and the moules were quite the best. My friend had chicory and walnut salad. With a delicious warm blue cheese sauce. The whole menu looked wonderful, and the restaurant was quite full. As it was a sunny day, we were able to sit at one of the outside tables. The 4 at the next door table got chilly, and were immediately moved inside, with no fuss. Can't wait to come back and have a leisurely lunch.

“BONEY SURPRISE”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Having been to COTE many times, we decided to treat my Aunt to a birthday dinner. I was very disappointed at the service and the food. Firstly, the service was awful; most unlike this restaurant; we had to keep calling for attention and some of the new staff were not being supervised. For a quiet Wednesday evening we found this unacceptable. Secondly, the fishcakes that 2 of us had were riddled with bones. When we pointed this out the staff member said she would metion it to the chef; no more was said; no apology and no recompence. I thought this restaurant had potential but it doesn't matter how good their food is, and it is usually, service like that will keep us away. There are many choices in Salisbury which means stiff competition in my book.

“They seem to do everything right”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Cote was highly recommended by our B&B (Sedgehill House), and proved to be excellent. It is located in a charming spot of town, nearby the small river that runs through the town. The pleasant aroma emanating from Cote's kitchen reached us even before we walked through the door.

The greeting was very friendly, and the excellent service continued throughout. As we were guests at Sedgehill, we were each served a complimentary welcome Kir Royale. Nice touch! Food portions were generous. Four of us couldn't finish a LARGE shared appetizer of mussels, but had no problem wiping off the delicious breaded calamari. The only disappointment was the chargrilled chicken, which was overcooked and, therefore, dry. The staff profusely apologised for the chicken, and quickly served a replacement. Alas, it too was overcooked.

No matter, we had a lovely time and a great meal at Cote. As a final surprise, of its own initiative and courtesy, Cote removed the chicken from our bill without publicising the fact that it did so. Even though it is part of a small chain of restaurants, the entire experience of eating at Cote Salisbury mad it one of the better meals we had in England. We'd eat there again in a heartbeat.
