This little French restaurant is a gem! Dover sole, filleted at table-side. How does it get better than that? Service extremely great, food equally, wine ditto! A must to go to after all this craziness ends.... Support this little restaurant. So worth it!

Cote D'Azur came highly recommended and lived up to our expectations! The veal and duck were excellent, and the octopus and endive salad apys were very good. Wine was reasonable, staff were excellent and attentive, can't wait to go back!

I made a reservation earlier in the week thru open table. We showed up on time and the lady said she didn’t see our reservation so the only table available was outside by the parking lot. Although there were tables open we were informed that...they screwed up and didn’t see our reservation. She said the open tables were already reserved. I said we also had a reservation. She said sorry but there is nothing we could do. I said this I unacceptable and she agreed but didn’t offer a solution. If I owned this restaurant I would have offered for us to come back and they pick up the tab, but they just let us leave pissed.More

Our party of 6 visited the restaurant this evening and while the food was ok, our experience was quite unfortunate. One member of our group has a fish/shellfish allergy, which we discussed w our waiter, and after talking w our him, she decided on the...duck w the waiter’s assurance that if she didn’t like it, he’d bring her something else. She did not, in fact, like the duck and when the waiter came to take it away, she asked for a filet instead- to which the waiter said no, it would take too long to prepare, instead offered her a fish special (eh hmmm- she had already discussed her allergy w him) and finally agreed to bring her a salad. He returned and offered us more wine, which we hadn’t ordered and suggested she might also want dessert as he couldn’t remove the duck from our bill since the chef/owner was adamant that he couldn’t take food back- despite the waiter’s original offer to do just that- and basically suggested we just wanted to sample more than one menu item without paying....?!?! Our waiter did try to appease us, but I’ve never been treated like this in a restaurant and frankly have NO INTENTION of returning. There are far too many excellent restaurants in Naples to return to a place where we were insulted by the owner. I’m still dumbfounded to think that the waiter flat out refused to bring us a steak when the first meal was not acceptable.More

Upon arrival, while we were15 minutes late, the owner's wife told us we had 1 1/2 hours to eat an get out. The waiter, while courteous, certainly tried to accommodate us. The food was marginal but have been there before. Having enjoyed some of the...finest restaurants in America, this place will never get a good rating from Michelin or Zagat. Ordered drink refills, had to remind waiter. Witness the wife tell the waiter to push us as they had other guests. We were there before but this constant push by the owner to get us out the door after spending $400 with them. Don't waste your time or money here, we go to France quite a bit, this is not French cuisine, it more like an upgraded Mel's Diner. Canceling our reservation made last week for March. Too many better places in Naples.More

Please understand that we feel this review is vicious and unnecessary. The guests were 45 minutes late on one of the busiest days of the year. Valentine's day. Most restaurants do not hold a reservation after 15 minutes.

Despite the fact that the restaurant was packed since it was Valentines Day, our food came out quickly and was piping hot. The appetizer mussels was more akin to entree size and spectacular. The baby octopus was served differently than most other restaurants and well...worth having. Crispy duck spectacular- apparently they start the cooking process the day before and it is served without bones. Very pretty restaurant inside. Serving staff very attentive. No surprise for a French restaurant, the wines are expensive.More

last year we were so pleased so we brought friends this year. The meal was so disappointing. One friend ordered medium well steak. It came rare. The next attempt was burned on the outside, rare inside. The final attempt was shoe leather. Meanwhile the rest...of us had finished eating.Our duck, superb last year, was overcooked but ok. The other person's fish dish was fine. the place was crowded, the waiter apologetic and we were not charged for the awful steak and our friend got a free dessert. That is nice but not good enough for a return trip when Naples has so many fine places.More

We frequent this restaurant and the food and service is typically outstanding. We made reservations weeks in advance for a party of 10 to commemorate our mothers birthdays. We spoke with the owner who recommended patio seating given our party size. We confirmed the reservation...the day before and reiterated the birthday celebration. Upon arriving we were surprised to see three additional tables squeezed into the tiny patio. This resulted in the waiter being unable to serve drinks/food. Everything had to be passed down by the guests. Likewise, we had to pass back all plates/silverware to clean the table for dessert. The owner even asked if two of our guests could move their chairs in for others to be seated. They were unable to do so. Lastly, there was no acknowledgement of the birthday celebration by staff. I contacted the owner the next day to express my displeasure who merely apologized. This is an expensive restaurant ($960 paid...we brought our own wine) and the ambiance ruined the evening. We should not have been expected to serve ourselves the meal.More

Great French Restaurant, a bit pricey. I had the special for the evening, halibut and it was delicious. Debbie had the salmon- best ever. Sally had the steak also excellent. Steve could not stop raving about the duck.

The restaurant was as good as my host remembered. Truly classic French cooking. Pricey but worth it.
