This became me and my boyfriends favourite place to go for dinner in my year at oxford. It is suitably posh to make an evening special. Especially on Sunday night- the jazz adds so much to the experience and along with the roast dinner it makes for a perfect evening! I've never had anything less than a gorgeous meal or piece of cake and the service was always exceptional. Amazing restaurant. I will miss it.

Thank Stephanie H

“Service made up for slightly delayed food.”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

We had a late lunch/early dinner on a Saturday.
We ordered a fougasse to start, which arrived quickly. We then had quite a wait before our mains arrived, but the manager came across (without us saying a word) with complimentary fizz for both of us. Our food was very nice, although it was right on the limit of being too salty, might be worth asking for less salt if you don't like heavily salted food. When the bill came, we found that they had removed the starter, all without us complaining once.

A final comment, and this was specific to our experience...a lady came in as we were finishing, on her mobile, and proceeded to have an extremely loud conversation on her phone. Her food came and she carried on conducting her business calls. It was really intrusive and we left glad that we had finished as she arrived. I think the waitresses should have had the courage to ask her to take her calls outside.

“Excellent Service, Excellent Value!”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

We had a wonderful meal at the Cote Brasserie on Saturday evening. Thankfully we booked a pre-show table (and we were glad that we did, as they were fully booked by the time we got there and turning away disappointed guests).

We were served by a very attentive waiter who was incredibly cheerful.

Our meals were superb! (Pork belly slow roasted and Medium Rib Eye steak cooked to perfection!).

Stunning meal, lovely venue, very attentive staff and lovely atmosphere! I will most definitely eat there again!

“Perfect end to our first date! (and she's still with me :-D)”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

Tasty starters and beautifully cooked steaks, all very well presented. Service was excellent - professional without being pretentious, and just the right amount of time between courses. Lovely setting, very attractive as well as being clean and comfortable. Thank you for giving us such an enjoyable evening. Been twice already and would definitely go again.

“Spectacular value for money!!!”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

I am normally not a fan of chain restaurants but Cote really has a special formula. The food is excellent for the price and the service is always very welcoming. Côte offers spectacular value for money for the offering and consistently delivers whichever Cote you go to. Big fan and would definitely recommend you visit if you are in Oxford.
