I visited with a mate, the staff were very friendly and attentive. The place looks very upmarket but the food is also upmarket. The prices are reasonable. The staff dropped a few items...luckily not ours. I would recommend this restaurant. A good wine list!

very noisy busy restaurant, did book for Saturday night and were seated quickly, service was very quick, friendly and very good. Two courses menu was good value for money and a generous portion, would recommend as pre theatre restaurant.

It was my birthday and we enjoyed a beautiful, very reasonable, two course lunch/pre-theatre menu. Delicious chicken liver parfait, and fishcakes. Very filling. The La Garde red wine is good. Never disappointed.

Really very little to say. Service, food, cleanliness all 5 stars. This chain never fails to deliver and this branch is no exception. The place was extremely busy with pre-theatre diners but the place is so well organised that it runs like clockwork. Bravo!

Chose cote for its reliability and it did not let us down, only slight issue was the very lengthy wait between courses, we put this down to the face our table was on the pavement and probably not on anyone's radar. Very reasonable price for 3 courses on the pre theatre menu

Thank Jonathan P
